Environmental myopia in a multi-pollutants setting : the case of climate change and acidification
This paper analyses the consequences of environmental myopia on policy design in a multi-pollutants framework. Focusing on the correlations between aerosols and greenhouse gases, the paper compares abatement and stock targets setting for various cases of environmental myopia. Both cases of lax and stringent regulation, compared to what is socially optimum, may arise. Furthermore, the lax/stringent nature of the policies may evolve over time, so that the time horizon of policy design matters in assessing the impact of environmental myopia.
