Less Frost, and More Cost: Biden Revives Interagency Working Group to Publish Updated Social Costs of Carbon and Other Greenhouse Gases

Read the full post at JD Supra.

President Biden’s Day One Executive Order on climate action reconvenes an interagency working group to establish interim and final social costs of three GHGs: carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and methane.

The social costs of these GHGs seek to quantify the negative externalities on an annual basis of a ton of these emissions.

The Biden administration will use the updated social cost figures to inform federal regulations and major agency actions and to justify aggressive climate action as the United States evolves toward a “100% clean energy” economy with net-zero GHG emissions.
