Economic Growth and CO2 Emissions with Endogenous Emission Regulations: A Computable General Equilibrium Analysis
It is widely known that emissions of greenhouse gases from anthropogenic activities have been dramatically increasing at the unprecedented rate over the past several decades, and causing the global
Economic Growth Assumptions in Climate and Energy Policy
The assumption that the economic growth seen in recent decades will continue has dominated the discussion of future greenhouse gas emissions and the mitigation of and adaptation to climate change.
Dynamics and Economic Aspects of Climate Change
Climate change is the alteration of climate directly or indirectly caused by human activities that modify the composition of the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases (GHG), particularly CO2, are accumulating
Economic Aspects of Climate Change
Although economists have often disagreed on economic aspects of global warming, views, such as those expressed in the Stern Review, which purports global warming as a major economic problem carrying
The Impact of CO2 Emission Cuts on Income
We study how carbon dioxide (CO2) emission cuts affect income for 23 OECD countries over the 1980-2004 period. The importance of this question is manifested in the disagreements at the 2009 United
Grazing the Commons: Global Carbon Emissions Forever?
This paper presents the results from our investigation of the per-capita, long- term relation between carbon dioxide emissions and gross domestic product (GDP) for the world, obtained with the use of
The implications of the economic slowdown for greenhouse gas emissions and targets
The global recession coincides with both the 2008-2012 commitment period for the Kyoto Protocol and the negotiations for its successor at Copenhagen in December. This has led to many articles in the


Economics of Global Warming, The
This award-winning study examines the costs and benefits of an aggressive program of global action to limit greenhouse warming. An initial chapter summarizes the scientific issues from the standpoint
Uncertainty Analysis of the IEA/ORAU CO2 Emissions Model
Future levels of carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels are an important determinant of the severity and timing of global warming due to elevated levels of radiatively active (greenhouse) gases
Some economics of global warming
The greenhouse effect itself is simple enough to understand and is not in any real dispute. What is in dispute is its magnitude over the coming century, its translation into changes in climates
Tax Policy to Combat Global Warming: On Designing a Carbon Tax
This paper develops several points concerning the design and implementation of a carbon tax. First, if implemented without any offsetting changes in transfer programs, the carbon tax would be
Economic Growth and Environmental Quality Time-Series and Cross-Country Evidence
The authors explore the relationship between economic growth and environmental quality by analyzing patterns of environmental transformation for countries at different income levels. They look at how
Environmental Quality and Development: Is There a Kuznets Curve for Air Pollution Emissions?
Abstract Several recent studies have identified inverted-U relationships between pollution and economic development. We investigate this question using a cross-national panel of data on emissions of
A Contribution to the Empirics of Economic Growth
This paper examines whether the Solow growth model is consistent with the international variation in the standard of living. It shows that an augmented Solow model that includes accumulation of human
Global warming : economic policy responses
Global warming is debated largely in environmental terms. The contributions in this book focus instead on the economic effects of global warming, providing an excellent summary of current thinking on
Global Energy and CO2 to the Year 2050
One of the important by-products of the combustion of fossil fuels is carbon dioxide (C02), a nontoxic, colorless gas with a faintly pungent odor and acid taste. Carbon dioxide is not commonly
A Sensitivity Analysis of Cross-Country Growth Regressions
A vast amount of literature uses cross-country regressions to find empirical links between policy indicators and long-run average growth rates. The authors study whether the conclusions from existing
