Burke, M., Davis, W.M. – Diffenbaugh, N.S. Significant potential reduction in economic damage under UN mitigation objectives. Nature 557, 549-553 (2018). Burke et al.6 also compare the 1960-1989 data with the 1990-2010 data and find that the response has not changed much over time. This indicates that adaptation processes that might have altered the response in the past are not observable in the data. Moreover, this means that the response to investment in the face of current or future climate change, which is having an impact on economic growth, has not changed in quality over time, despite the increasing availability of information on the climate problem. Similarly, a comprehensive analysis, such as ours, naturally overlooks distribution issues, i.e. that bears damage and mitigation costs.

Some specifications of the harmful functions we use here make at least the difference between two income categories. Here, we must make simplistic assumptions about the parts of these classes in order to integrate them into the model of a region, which is another source of uncertainty (Figure 4). In general, the calculation of costs and benefits must be interpreted differently and ethical considerations are in mind. Like other studies36, we use DICE as a parsimonious substitute for more complex and space-scattered MAAs. Future research should transfer our analysis to these MAAs to clarify regional impact analysis issues and to take full account of regionally specific empirical estimates. Ueckerdt, F. et al.

These six reasons do not demonstrate all the reasons why the Paris Agreement is beneficial to economies, but it is clear that measures to combat climate change under the Paris Agreement can stimulate sustainable economic growth. Communities everywhere still have record climate impacts, from deadly wildfires to devastating storms. These effects will only worsen in the absence of major measures to combat climate change. Fortunately, the world has the plan to respond to science: the Paris Agreement. Nearly four years ago, 195 countries adopted the Paris Agreement, a historic global action plan to combat climate change. The agreement provides the world with a framework for preventing the harmful effects of climate change by limiting global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius and by leading efforts to limit it to 1.5 degrees Celsius. If this is the case, a national supply and a demand model are adapted to our analysis. However, it is possible that trade in fishing markets may play a more important role than has been reported for our subset. Even then, the main finding from the use of our domestic demand and supply model is robust for trade integration. Our analysis clearly shows that limiting climate change will help improve catches in the fishing sector and generate significant social and economic benefits for the fishing industry. The extent of these benefits depends on the size of trade and, if trade is considerable in countries we do not know, some of the price changes will be tempered. In this case, our estimates can be seen as a ceiling for the benefits of limiting climate change.
