A basic hedonic framework shows that “good” climate is of value to workers and consumers of housing. Workers accept lower wages and pay greater housing rents (all else equal) to work and live in a city with better climate. To measure the impact of reducing emissions, I estimate the variations in wage and rents attributable to cross-sectional differences in climate.
