The social cost of carbon (SCC) is currently used in a variety of regulatory impact analyses throughout the U.S. government (USG) to value the climate change impacts of various regulations. This one-day workshop will examine the various questions the government faces when making use of the scientific literature on the SCC in order to create and maintain an estimate for regulatory purposes. The purpose is to examine whether a consensus exists among the workshop participants on recommendations for improving the SCC process in the future. This workshop is co-sponsored by the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and the Center of Law, Economics, and Public Policy.
