Richard Tol is giving a talk on the social cost of carbon (SCC) by Skype hook-up from Europe. It's a difficult topic, made even more difficult when you can only comprehend every third word the presenter speaks. Teleconferencing clearly remains an imperfect technology. Fortunately, I've read nearly everything Tol has written on this topic, so I don't really need to hear what he's saying.
The next speaker will be Simon Dietz, also by Skype from Europe. Gary Yohe, thankfully, is here in person to present his views.
