Correction to the True Cost of Coal Power - MMN11 Posted on 16 October 2011 by dana1981 We recently published a post on a study which examined the external costs of air pollution associated with various industries (costs which are not reflected in the market price), including power production through coal combustion, written by economists Muller, Mendelsohn, and Nordhaus (2011; MMN11). Social Cost of Carbon The costs associated with climate change are estimated through the "social cost of carbon" (SCC). Normally the SCC is estimated in terms of CO2-equivalent emissions, because CO2 isn't the only long-lived greenhouse gas causing global warming, and carbon pricing systems usually include other greenhouse gases as well. As we have previously discussed , although it's a difficult value to estimate, in recent climate economics studies, the SCC is usually put between about $5 ...
