Social Cost of Carbon

Posted by Daniel Zrymiak on May 17, 2018 9:58 am

I read in the Sunday New York Times that this calculated metric is a widely shared value that is incorporated in international industrial policy.  The Social Cost of Carbon represents the accumulated effects (positive and negative) to society arising from carbon use.

The controversy is that the method of calculation has recently changed to show a substantial reduction.  I am curious on the viewpoints of others on myASQ for this measure.  This measure can be an input to the Cost fo Quality and Cost of Social Responsibility frameworks.

I too have read many articles about the IPCC report.  I wish that ASQ would be open to embracing sustainability as a faction of quality.  It seems like a natural progression of the basic philosophies of quality.
