New Climate Change Economics Journal

A new journal published by World Scientific titled: Climate Change Economics has been launched. The aims and scope statement states:

"Climate Change Economics (CCE) publishes theoretical and empirical papers devoted to analyses of mitigation, adaptation, impacts, and other issues related to the policy and management of greenhouse gases. CCE is specifically devoted to papers in economics although it is understood that authors may need to rely on other fields for important insights. The journal is interested in papers examining the issue at every scale from local to global and papers from around the world are encouraged. CCE is also interested in both original research and review papers and welcomes comments discussing previous articles."

The editor in chief is Robert Mendelsohn of Yale University and the editorial board is full of big names in environmental and energy economics:

Carlo Carraro (Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM), Italy)
Larry Goulder (Stanford University, USA)
Charles Kolstad (University of California - Santa Barbara, USA)
William Nordhaus (Yale University, USA)
Richard Richels (Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), USA)
Daigee Shaw (Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research, Taiwan)
Thomas Schelling (University of Maryland, USA)
Robert Stavins (Harvard University, USA)
Richard Tol (Economic and Social Research Institute, Dublin, Ireland)
Martin Weitzman (Harvard University, USA)

So this has the potential to be a highly ranked journal.
