Socio-economical evaluation of CO2 uptake knowledge

We estimated the marginal damage costs of carbon dioxide emissions at 7-33/tC, with a maximum of 50/tC. We estimated the marginal abatement costs of carbon dioxide emissions at 10-20/tC, with a maximum of 100/tC. We predict that Denmark, Iceland, New Zealand and Norway will advocate the inclusion of ocean sinks in the successor of the Kyoto Protocol, and will meet little opposition.
