Belfer Center Programs or Projects: Harvard Project on Climate Agreements


Authors and HPCA collaborators Gernot Wagner and Martin Weitzman question a new study from the journal Nature that claims, "By 2047, Coldest Years May Be Warmer Than Hottest in Past, Scientists Say." Wagner and Weitzman warn that there are uncertainties around climate impacts that we cannot currently resolve and that these uncertainties may warrant more, rather than less, action to reduce emissions.
