New article on Climate change effect on the economy for the next 2 centuries

Prof. Tol from the VU Amsterdam published an article this month in Climatic Change on the economic impact of climate change in the 20th and the 21st centuries. He used FUND3.6 to calculate the impacts of climate change for the 20th century and extrapolated it to the 21st Century. According to the extrapolation for this century, the impact will be negative for energy demand, water resources, biodiversity and sea level rise, while it will stay positive for human health and agriculture until the end of the century. More details in the article DOI: 10.1007/s10584-012-0613-3 in Climatic Change.
