Forbes cites ERG PHD Student Stephen Jarvis on Germany’s Nuclear Phase-Out

ERG MS/PHD student Stephen Jarvis, in collaboration with economists Olivier Deschenes and Akshaya Jha, had their research paper cited in the Forbes article titled “As The Costs Of Germany’s Nuclear Phase Out Mount, Little Appetite For A Rethink”.

“One of the most striking findings in our study is that by far the largest cost of the phase-out is the increased mortality risk associated with exposure to local pollution. Despite this, most of the discussion of the phase-out, both at the time and since, has focused on electricity prices and carbon emissions–air pollution has been a second order consideration at best,” said Jarvis.
