Probabilistic forecast for twenty-first-century climate based on uncertainties in emissions (without policy) and climate parameters.
Abstract The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Integrated Global System Model is used to make probabilistic projections of climate change from 1861 to 2100. Since the model’s firstExpand

An Issue of Permanence: Assessing the Effectiveness of Temporary Carbon Storage
In this paper, we present a method to quantify the effectiveness of carbon mitigation options taking into account the `permanence' of the emissions reduction. While the issue of permanence is mostExpand

Future Effects of Ozone on Carbon Sequestration and Climate Change Policy Using a Global Biogeochemical Model
Exposure of plants to ozone inhibits photosynthesis and therefore reduces vegetation production and carbon sequestration. The reduced carbon storage would then require further reductions in fossilExpand

Distributional Impacts of Carbon Pricing: A General Equilibrium Approach with Micro-Data for Households
Many policies to limit greenhouse gas emissions have at their core efforts to put a price on carbon emissions. Carbon pricing impacts households both by raising the cost of carbon intensive productsExpand
