  • Metcalf, Gilbert E. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2006-08)
    Efforts to reduce carbon emissions significantly will require considerable improvements in energy intensity, the ratio of energy consumption to economic activity. Improvements in energy intensity over the past thirty years ...
  • Paltsev, Sergey; Reilly, John M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2007-06)
    We describe several scenarios for economic development and energy use in East Asia based on the MIT Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis (EPPA) model, a computable general equilibrium model of the world economy. Historic ...
  • Zhang, D.; Springmann, M.; Karplus, V.J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-02)
    China has embarked on an ambitious pathway for establishing a national carbon market in the next five to ten years. In this study, we analyze the distributional aspects of a Chinese emissions-trading scheme from ethical, ...
  • Forest, Chris Eliot.; Stone, Peter H.; Sokolov, Andrei P. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2005-09)
    We present revised probability density functions (PDF) for climate system properties (climate sensitivity, rate of deep-ocean heat uptake, and the net aerosol forcing strength) that include the effect on 20th century ...
  • Webster, Mort David.; Scott, Jeffery.; Sokolov, Andrei P.; Stone, Peter H. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2006-03)
    Studying the uncertainty in computationally expensive models has required the development of specialized methods, including alternative sampling techniques and response surface approaches. However, existing techniques for ...
  • Sugiyama, Masahiro.; Nicholls, Robert J.; Vafeidis, Athanasios (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2008-04)
    To improve the estimate of economic costs of future sea-level rise associated with global climate change, this report generalizes the sea-level rise cost function originally proposed by Fankhauser, and applies it to a ...
  • Convery, Frank; Ellerman, A. Denny; De Perthuis, Christian (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2008-06)
    The European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) is the largest greenhouse gas market ever established. The European Union is leading the world's first effort to mobilize market forces to tackle climate change. A precise ...
  • Ellerman, A. Denny (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2009-02)
    The European Union's Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS) is the world's first multinational cap-and-trade system for greenhouse gases. As an agreement between sovereign nations with diverse historical, institutional, and ...
  • Sokolov, Andrei P.; Dutkiewicz, Stephanie.; Stone, Peter H.; Scott, Jeffery. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2005-11)
    The study of the uncertainties in future climate projections requires large ensembles of simulations with different values of model characteristics that define its response to external forcing. These characteristic include ...
  • Babiker, Mustafa H.M.; Jacoby, Henry D.; Reilly, John M.; Reiner, David M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2002-02)
    At meetings in Bonn and Marrakech in 2001, the Conference of the Parties to the Framework Convention on Climate Change broke through an impasse on the detailed provisions needed to allow the Kyoto Protocol to enter into ...
  • Carlén, Björn. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2002-11)
    The experiment reported here tests the case of so-called exclusionary manipulation of emission permit markets, i.e., when a dominant firm -- here a monopolist -- increases its holding of permits in order to raise its rivals' ...
  • Sue Wing, Ian.; Eckaus, Richard S. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2004-09)
    Recent events have revived interest in explaining the long-run changes in the energy intensity of the U.S. economy. We use a KLEM dataset for 35 industries over 39 years to decompose changes in the aggregate energy-GDP ...
  • Viguier, Laurent L. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2000-09)
    In March 2000, the European Commission presented a Green Paper on greenhouse gas emissions trading within Europe, supporting implementation of a Community-wide scheme in which the design and regulation of all essential ...
  • Metcalf, Gilbert E. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2007-01)
    On Aug. 8, 2005, President Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (PL 109-58). This was the first major piece of energy legislation enacted since 1992 following five years of Congressional efforts to pass energy ...
  • Kamenkovich, Igor V.; Sokolov, Andrei P.; Stone, Peter H. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2001-07)
  • Sokolov, Andrei P.; Stone, Peter H. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 1997-03)
  • Babiker, Mustafa M.H.; Gurgel, Angelo C.; Paltsev, Sergey; Reilly, John M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2008-05)
    This paper documents a forward looking multi-regional general equilibrium model developed from the latest version of the recursive-dynamic MIT Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis (EPPA) model. The model represents ...
  • Monier, Erwan; Gao, Xiang; Scott, Jeffery; Sokolov, Andrei; Schlosser, C. Adam (MIT Joint Program, 2013-05)
    In this study, we present a new modeling framework and a large ensemble of climate projections to investigate the uncertainty in regional climate change over the US associated with four dimensions of uncertainty. The sources ...
  • Skolnikoff, Eugene B. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 1999-01)
    Global climate change is on the political agenda primarily as a result of science and the warnings of the scientific community, and is commonly seen as a quintessentially scientific matter. However, the development of ...
  • Sekar, Ram C.; Parsons, John E.; Herzog, Howard J.; Jacoby, Henry D. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2005-12)
    This paper assesses the role of uncertainty over future U.S. carbon regulations in shaping the current choice of which type of power plant to build. The pulverized coal technology (PC) still offer the lowest cost power— ...
