"The Economist" on Integrated Assessment Models

The October 5th edition of The Economist had an interesting piece on the integrated assessment models (IAMs) used to model future greenhouse gas emissions and the costs and benefits of different climate policies. It presents a range of perspectives from different economists on the utility of IAMs for policy analysis, which range from "close to useless" to the more optimistic "require sweeping changes".
