Calculating the Climate Reciprocity Ratio for the US

A leading argument for the use of a global social cost of carbon in the US has been the reciprocal effect of climate action in the US on the behavior of other countries. US commitments to reduce emissions will likely be met with commitments by others to do the same, and emission reductions in other countries will benefit citizens of the US. With the negotiation and adoption of the Paris Agreement, we now have an evidence base upon which to evaluate this argument.
