Equitable, effective, and feasible approaches for a prospective fossil fuel transition

Most fossil fuel resources must remain unused to comply with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Scholars and policymakers debate which approaches should be undertaken to Leave Fossil Fuels

Responsible Carbon Resource Management through Input-Oriented Cap and Trade (IOCT)

Fossil fuels store primary carbon. When they are combusted, CO2 is released into the atmosphere. The accumulation of CO2 in the atmosphere causes the anthropogenic greenhouse gas effect, which has

Global extractivisms and transformative alternatives

ABSTRACT This article examines global extractivisms and transformative alternatives; addressing: (1) access to and control over resources, (2) governance and recognition, (3) environmental-social



Macroeconomic impact of stranded fossil fuel assets

Several major economies rely heavily on fossil fuel production and exports, yet current low-carbon technology diffusion, energy efficiency and climate policy may be substantially reducing global

Inclusive Development and Climate Change:: The Geopolitics of Fossil Fuel Risks in Developing Countries

This conceptual paper brings together two previously disparate strands of scholarship on climate change and development together with emerging studies of stranded assets. It addresses the question:

Stranded assets and stranded resources: Implications for climate change mitigation and global sustainable development

Battling for a Shrinking Market: Oil Producers, the Renewables Revolution, and the Risk of Stranded Assets

Oil and gas producers such as the OPEC countries and Russia are easily portrayed as the ‘losers’ of a transition to renewables. This chapter investigates their role in the new energy game and

The Carbon Ask: effects of climate policy on the value of fossil fuel resources and the implications for technological innovation

Strong policies to address climate change will almost certainly require that large quantities of oil, natural gas, and coal remain underground. Because these resources have economic value, action to

Stranded Assets: A Climate Risk Challenge

Over the last few years, the topic of "stranded assets" resulting from environment-related risk factors has loomed larger. These factors include the effects of physical climate change as well as
