Nutrient Utilization and Double Cropping Rice Yield Response to Dense Planting with a Decreased Nitrogen Rate in Two Different Ecological Regions of South China
An increased planting density and decreased nitrogen (N) rate combination may obtain a stable yield and enhance N utilization. However, the effects of an increased planting density and decreased N
Development of Uniform Porous Carbons From Polycarbazole Phthalonitriles as Durable CO2 Adsorbent and Supercapacitor Electrodes
Advances in new porous materials have recognized great consideration in CO2 capture and electrochemical energy storage (EES) applications. In this study, we reported a synthesis of two
Slander, Shouts, and Silence: Incumbent Resistance to Disruptive Logics
This paper develops a typology of incumbent resistance to disruptive new logics. Although scholars of institutional change have studied public forms of resistance, a comprehensive understanding of
Advocating inaction: a historical analysis of the Global Climate Coalition
Ever since climate change became a political issue in the late 1980s, a number of industry coalitions have formed to oppose mandatory carbon emissions reductions. One key coalition was the Global
Trajectories for Energy Transition in EU-28 Countries over the Period 2000–2019: a Multidimensional Approach
Environmental issues have become a major concern for policymakers faced with the threat of global warming. The European Climate Energy Package is an ambitious plan which drives the trajectories of
Assessment of the Development Limitations for Wave Energy Utilization in the Baltic Sea
The use of renewable energy sources is one of the most promising options for slowing down climate change and the variability of resources would benefit the energy systems even further. Research
Opinion Dynamics with Conflicting Interests
I develop a rather simple agent-based model to capture a co-evolution of opinion formation, political decision making and economic outcomes. I use this model to study how societies form opinions if


Ghost in a Shell: The Scenario Tool and the World Making of Royal Dutch Shell
This article examines the history of the Royal Dutch Shell scenarios, from the first horizon scan exercise in 1967. It proposes that forward-looking scenarios were integrated in planning at Shell as
Early oil industry disinformation on global warming
ABSTRACT Determining the onset of organized disinformation about global warming is critical for understanding its political history and evaluating the responsibilities of fossil fuel producers and
Gas Guzzling Gaia, or: A Prehistory of Climate Change Denialism
This article tells the story of the oil and gas origins of the Gaia hypothesis, the theory that the Earth is a homeostatic system. It shows how Gaia’s key assumption—that the climate is a
A history of the global carbon budget

The idea of a global “carbon budget”—the cumulative amount of “allowable” carbon emissions to meet a global temperature target—has become established as a central concept in climate science and
Dynamics of wilful blindness: An introduction
What are the politics of ignorance in an age of misinformation? How can the concept of ‘wilful blindness’ help us to understand the logics involved? We start the introduction to this special issue by
Waiting for a deus ex machina: ‘Sustainable extractives’ in a 2°C world
In recent years the oil industry has shifted from climate change denialism to advocacy of the Paris Agreement, championing sustainability in an apparent assertion (rather than rejection) of corporate
Piercing the corporate veil: Towards a better assessment of the position of transnational oil and gas companies in the global carbon budget
In recent years, research in climate science has increasingly emphasized the need to reduce fossil fuel supply in order to avoid an overshoot of the global carbon budget and to meet the Paris
The oil industry and climate change: strategies and ethical dilemmas
Abstract This paper explores the different climate change strategies chosen by three major multinational oil corporations: ExxonMobil, TotalFinaElf and BP Amoco. They are referred to, as the ‘fight
