Yesterday I was at the Climate Economics Chair, situated in Palais Bropalais_brongniartngniart in Paris. The Palais Brongniart is of course a beautiful place to be working in, and to be researching in a palace built under Napoleon is certainly an inspiration. I was working with Pierre-André Jouvet, a Professor at Paris X who is also one of the main organizers of the chair.

While working together he also reminded me that there is a conference organized by the Climate Economics Chair and Toulouse School of Economics on the 14th October, entitled “Economics stakes of the 2015 Paris Climate Conference”. Should be very interesting! For further information follow this LINK, registration is obligatory. As always, you can also find more details in my Environmental Economics Calendar on the right.

You may also want to read these articles:

  1. Power, Politics and Climate Change, by Sarah Miller – She giving arguments why the “UN climate summit to be held in Paris this December stands a good chance of success in adopting a framework that will dramatically reduce carbon dioxide emissions.” Finally someone out there with some positive hope for COP21! I like to read about positive things from time to time…
  2. European Coal Map – “The interactive Coal Map of Europe gives an overview of the role of coal in our electricity system. It maps different aspects of the coal business, ranging from where the coal plants are located to the health and climate impacts, government involvement and growing resistance from citizens.” Certainly interesting.
