Yes that's an excellent article - I actually referenced it in my debunking of Monckton Myth #24.  That post was devoted almost entirely to looking at both the costs and benefits (benefits being the same as avoiding the costs/damages) of reducing GHG emissions.

Since it was Monckton's final point in that article, it won't be published on SkS for a while yet though.  Probably another week or so, but it's coming.

The essay, "Costs of inaction: the economics of high-end warming" was posted on Grist on Feb 2, 2011. It's similar to John Carey's article cited above.
