The Identification of Causal Effects in Environmental and Energy Economics
Environmental and energy economics has grown broad and diverse. The challenges of managing environmental quality, especially in light of climate change and growing energy demands, are well-recognized and becoming increasingly important. At the same time, the research methods of environmental and energy economics continue to advance and provide a basis for more informed decision making. Mirroring trends in empirical economics generally, environmental and energy economists are placing ever more emphasis on careful identification strategies that underlie conclusions about causal effects.
