DICE2007 – ten year time step

This page summarizes the results for the DICE2007 carbon tax under four different settings. The settings are

  • Nordhaus – 10: original DICE2007 version with 10y- time periods
  • CJL – 1: The CJL version of DICE2007 with Euler explicit finite difference 1y- time steps

For the 1-year versions, the table just lists the values at the years matched with the 10-year version.
The following table lists carbon taxes of the first 200 years of DICE2007 (10 year time steps) and DICE-CJL (1year time steps).
