Nordhaus, 77, was specifically honoured for "integrating climate change into long-run macroeconomic analysis". The tax is created to make users of those fuels pay for the environmental damage they cause.
Farrell: In economics for a long time, economists would talk about the supply of capital and the supply of labor when they were talking about long-term economic growth, and that technology was kind of like manna from heaven, it just kind of emerged. And, most importantly, they drove many other economists toward these issues.

Nordhaus's work was not only to be included in academic syllabi: The U.S. government's Environmental Protection Agency used it to analyze the social cost of carbon dioxide emissions. Climate change and its effect on everyone's well-being, he pointed out, is not a part of national accounts, while profits and GDP are. Versions of a carbon tax have been used in Europe but have yet to be adopted in the United States. Yale's William Nordhaus, familiar to Marketplace listeners, I've read several of his books ... he's all about calculating the costs and benefits of climate change. "I've been working on that for nearly 40 years, and the time's ripe".
The report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change cited Nordhaus' research in detailing how Earth's weather, health and ecosystems would be better off if nations more aggressively curbed human-caused planet warming of 0.9 degrees Fahrenheit (a half degree Celsuis) rather than a previously agreed-on target of 1.8 degress F (1 degree C).
