Prevailing economic research anticipates the burden of climate change falling on hot or poor nations. Some predict that cooler or wealthier economies will be unaffected or even see benefits from higher temperatures.

In fact, our estimates suggest that – on average – richer, colder countries would lose as much income to climate change as poorer, hotter nations.
