A Review of Greenhouse Gas Emission Liabilities as the Value of Renewable Energy for Mitigating Lawsuits for Climate Change Related Damages

  title={A Review of Greenhouse Gas Emission Liabilities as the Value of Renewable Energy for Mitigating Lawsuits for Climate Change Related Damages},
  author={Negin Heidari and Joshua M. Pearce},
Anthropogenic global climate change has large and mounting negative economic impacts. Companies and nations responsible for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are thus acquiring considerable potential liabilities. If litigation becomes widespread, renewable energy technologies (RETs) potentially offer emitters reduced liability for climate change. This benefit has been ignored because of the lack of knowledge of potential liabilities. To overcome this information deficit, this paper reviews recent… 
Climate change and fossil fuel: An examination of risks for the energy industry and producer states
This article compiles and categorizes the various forms of climate risk facing the fossil fuel industry. The type and intensity of risk differs greatly among the three forms of fossil fuels, as well
Two-stage concession game approach for analyzing greenhouse gases emission reduction schemes
Climate change imposes a huge treat on the sustainability of our environment. One of the major reasons for the increasing impacts of climate change is the emission of greenhouse gases. Therefore,
Examining the carbon emissions and climate impacts on main agricultural crops production and land use: updated evidence from Pakistan
As Pakistan is an emerging country, potential constructive measures must be introduced in directive to reduce CO 2 emissions to improve the agricultural productivity.
Climate change: the risks of stranded fossil fuel assets and resources to the developing world
Abstract Under the Paris Agreement, 80% of all proven fossil fuel reserves become stranded resources and investments already made in such resources turn into stranded assets. Much of the existing
Could 79 People Solarize the U.S. Electric Grid?
Although wealth inequality has many established negatives, this study investigates a potential positive, unprecedented wealth concentration makes it possible for solutions to large and seemingly
Decarbonizing the Boardroom? Aligning Electric Utility Executive Compensation With Climate Change Incentives
Abstract Despite the drastic reversal of decarbonization effort by the Trump administration, the majority of U.S. states continue policies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and
Factors of Renewable Energy Consumption in the European Countries—The Bayesian Averaging Classical Estimates Approach
The paper aims to identify the most likely factors that determine the demand for energy consumption from renewable sources (renewable energy consumption—REC) in European countries. Although in
Determinants of renewable energy production in WAEMU countries: New empirical insights and policy implications
ABSTRACT This paper introduces model uncertainty into the empirical study of the determinants of renewable energy generation at the regional level. The Bayesian Model Averaging (BMA) approach applied


As we learn that the danger of climate change is real and imminent, we need to develop social mechanisms to redistribute the uneven economic damages resulting from it, both nationally and
Basic Compensation for the Victims of Climate Change
Even if the world implements an optimal program for reducing greenhouse emissions, significant effects of climate change will still occur. Examples include changes in sea level, precipitation
CO2 embodied in international trade with implications for global climate policy.
The CO2 emissions embodied in international trade among 87 countries for the year 2001 is determined and it is found that globally there are over 5.3 Gt of CO2 embodied in trade and that Annex B countries are net importers ofCO2 emissions.
Tort Law in the Era of Climate Change, Katrina and 9/11: Exploring Liability for Extraordinary Risks
Tort cases generally deal with routine risks - the kind of risk that a person encounters as a result of driving a car or buying a product. These risks are also staples of the insurance industry.
