LSE centre for economic performance – climate change: consensus on the long run targets, but will we get policies that deliver?

By Ralf Martin

Abstract

A new series of Election Analyses is now available from the LSE’s Centre for Economic Performance (CEP). The series will discuss the research evidence on some of the key policy battlegrounds of the 2010 General Election, including macroeconomic policy, immigration, health, education, crime, poverty and inequality, labour market policy, regional policy, energy and the environment, financial regulation and bankers’ bonuses, and foreign aid. There is a great deal of overlap between the parties’ proposals on climate change policy. The 2008 Climate Change Bill, which was backed by the opposition parties, has created a sensible overarching framework for climate change policy-making. But according to the latest Election Analysis, by Ralf Martin, from the Centre for Economic Performance (CEP), this framework must now be filled with more detailed policy measures that can induce change
