- Part of the CGS Global Migrations Series -
CAGE studies how climate change feeds back on human policies. It includes global heat and greenhouse gas balance and econometrically calibrated models of the evolution of up to 16 country groups' per capita consumption. Results are analyzed with and without new policies aimed at controlling the rise of global average temperature and/or atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. Both game theory and interactive simulations of policy negotiations are in progress to improve the theoretical and experimental basis for extrapolating human response to climate change.
