The Impact of Climate Change on Hurricane Damages in the United States
Description: This paper quantifies hurricane damage caused by climate change across the US. Income and population growth alone increase expected baseline damage from $9 to $27 billion per year by 2100. Climate change is expected to increase damage by another $40 billion. Over 85 percent of these impacts are in Florida and the Gulf states. The 10 percent most damaging storms cause 93 percent of expected damage. [Source: Social Science Research Network (SSRN)]
