  • 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)

  • 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— ...
  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
