  • Kishimoto, P.N.; Paltsev, S.; Karplus, V.J. (Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2012-10)
    A major uncertainty in future energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions projections for China is the evolution of demand for personal transportation modes. This paper explores the implications of divergent personal ...
  • Schlosser, C. Adam; Strzepek, Kenneth M.; Gao, Xiang; Gueneau, Arthur; Fant, Charles; Paltsev, Sergey; Rasheed, Bilhuda; Smith-Greico, Tony; Blanc, Elodie; Jacoby, Henry D.; Reilly, John M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-01)
    We assess the ability of global water systems, resolved at 282 large river basins or Assessment Sub Regions (ASRs), to the meet water requirements over the coming decades under integrated projections of socioeconomic growth ...
  • Paltsev, Sergey; Jacoby, Henry D.; Reilly, John M.; Ejaz, Q.J.; O’Sullivan, F.; Morris, Jennifer; Rausch, Sebastian; Winchester, Niven; Kragha, O. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2010-06)
    Two computable general equilibrium models, one global and the other providing U.S. regional detail, are applied to analysis of the future of U.S. natural gas as an input to an MIT study of the topic. The focus is on ...
  • Deutch, John M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2004-09)
    Without energy, the economy can neither function nor grow. However, for at least the next half-century, the U.S. will not have an inexhaustible supply of inexpensive, clean energy. Dependence on energy imports, vulnerability ...
  • Gitiaux, Xavier; Reilly, John M.; Paltsev, Sergey (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2011-05)
    The potential future role of biofuels has become an important topic in energy legislation as it is seen as a potential low carbon alternative to conventional fuels. Hence, future yield growth is an important topic from ...
  • Bugnion, Véronique.; Reiner, David M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 1999-11)
    EPA's legal authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act is reviewed. While EPA clearly does not have the authority to implement the precise terms of the Kyoto Protocol, arguments could be put ...
  • Lanz, Bruno, 1980-; Rausch, Sebastian (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2011-02)
    Electricity generation is a major contributor to carbon dioxide emissions, and a key determinant of abatement costs. Ex-ante assessments of carbon policies mainly rely on either of two modeling paradigms: (i) partial ...
  • Selin, Noelle E.; Paltsev, Sergey; Wang, Chien; Donkelaar, A. van; Martin, R.V. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2011-08)
    Atmospheric fine particulate matter <2.5 μm (PM2.5) can cause cardiovasculatory and respiratory damages and mortalities. Assessing population exposure to and damages from PM2.5 is important for policy, but measurement ...
  • Reilly, John M.; Paltsev, Sergey.; Felzer, Benjamin Seth.; Wang, Xiaodong.; Kicklighter, David W.; Melillo, Jerry M.; Prinn, Ronald G.; Sarofim, Marcus C.; Sokolov, Andrei P.; Wang, Chien. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2007-05)
    Multiple environmental changes will have consequences for global vegetation. To the extent that crop yields and pasture and forest productivity are affected there can be important economic consequences. We examine the ...
  • Webster, Mort D.; Prinn, Ronald G.; Paltsev, Sergey; Reilly, John M.; Nam, Kyung-Min; Wu, Shiliang; Selin, Noelle E. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2009-08)
    We assess the human health and economic impacts of projected 2000-2050 changes in ozone pollution using the MIT Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis-Health Effects (EPPA-HE) model, in combination with results from the ...
  • Wang, Chien.; Prinn, Ronald G.; Sokolov, Andrei P. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 1997-09)
  • Schlosser, C. Adam; Kicklighter, David; Sokolov, Andrei (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2007-05)
    Land ecosystems play a major role in the global cycles of energy, water, carbon and nutrients. A Global Land System (GLS) framework has been developed for the Integrated Global Systems Model Version 2 (IGSM2) to simulate ...
  • Sokolov, Andrei P.; Stone, Peter H. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 1996-09)
    The climatological impact of increases in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere, despite being a subject of intensive study in recent years, is still very uncertain. One major uncertainty affecting possible climate ...
  • Reilly, John (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2012-06-14)
    The relatively new concept of "green growth" can be fruitfully connected to concepts and theories in neoclassical economics including market externalities, Ricardian and Hotelling rents, and policies that would correct ...
  • Babiker, Mustafa H.M.; Eckaus, Richard S. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2006-07)
    The current economic modeling of emissions limitations does not embody economic features that are likely to be particularly important in the short term, yet the politics of limiting greenhouse gas emissions are often ...
  • Schmalensee, Richard. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 1996-11)
    This paper discusses the design of efficient environmental policies in general and reviews omissions and shortcomings of the presentation of the economic dimensions of climate change in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate ...
  • Matus, Kira; Nam, Kyung-Min; Selin, Noelle E.; Lamsal, Lok N.; Reilly, John M.; Paltsev, Sergey (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2011-03)
    In China, elevated levels of urban air pollution result in substantial adverse health impacts for its large and rapidly growing urban population. An expanded version of the Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis (EPPA), ...

  • Reilly, John; Paltsev, Sergey; Choumert, Frederic (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2007-04)
    The crude slate is likely to become heavier in the future with greater reliance on bitumens, tar sands, heavy oils, and eventually possibly shale oil. Under standard refining processes these crude oil sources produce a ...
  • Forest, Chris Eliot.; Stone, Peter H.; Jacoby, Henry D. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2000-10)
    We present a pedagogical paper on the detection of climate change and its attribution to anthropogenic influences. We attempt to separate the key thought processes and tools that are used when making qualitative statements ...
