Economic impacts of climate change

Climate change is projected to affect global, national, and local economies across a number of sectors. For example, the potential for more frequent natural disasters could lead to increased destruction of businesses, homes, and infrastructure; and, in the long run, climate change could erode the viability of businesses ranging from agriculture to tourism.

At a public seminar hosted by the National Research Council on May 10, WILLIAM D. NORDHAUS, professor of economics at Yale University, will talk about current research on how to measure and model climate change's economic effects, and the additional data needed to help researchers make more accurate projections.

DETAILS: 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 10, in the auditorium of the National Academies building, 2100 C St., N.W., Washington, D.C. Those who cannot attend may listen to a live audio webcast at http://national-academies.org.

REPORTERS WHO WISH TO ATTEND SHOULD REGISTER IN ADVANCE by contacting the National Academies' Office of News and Public Information, tel. 202-334-2138 or e-mail news@nas.edu.
