AbstractIn relation to EA P’s (Vol 38, No 2) papers on Global Warming and Climate Change we have received feedback from several readers on Carter’s (2008) contribution. As indicated in aims and scope of the journal, our objective is to publish controversies on current topics that are interesting to economists and a more general readership under Policy Debates and Controversies. It is the intention to involve contributors from related disciplines and as such not all aspects of contributions represent new or original research within the field of the contributor, but it may help the core readership of this journal to obtain a broader appreciation of the topics discussed. With reference to Carter’s (2008) contribution, this issue is publishing a reply from Bob Ward from the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK. We also publish a brief reply from Bob Carter to Ward’s paper. The editors believe that not all arguments in the debate are new to the climate change debate, but the discussion has prompted a discussion among economists, students and the public. We would now like to close this controversy with this issue and thank all contributors for their views for a highly interesting and useful debate.
