This paper is going to use economic tools to explain how the city of San Fransico adapting the sea level rise.
The focus is on climate change affect the sea-level rise at San Fransico. Therefore, this paper needs temperature data for 50 years before until now to prove that San Fransico needs to build the Sea Wall. Then, we need at least five scenarios (meters), 2000-2100. This will help the data predict how many years later where San Fransico will need to build the Sea Wall. Also, the cost of the Sea Wall also needs the data.
This paper needs the DICE economic model in this paper.
