  • Babiker, Mustafa H.M.; Viguier, Laurent L.; Reilly, John M.; Ellerman, A. Denny.; Criqui, Patrick. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2001-06)
    To what extent do the welfare costs associated with the implementation of the Burden Sharing Agreement in the European Union depend on sectoral allocation of emissions rights? What are the prospects for strategic climate ...
  • Jacoby, Henry D.; Schmalensee, Richard.; Reiner, David M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 1996-11)
    The MIT Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis (EPPA) model is applied to an exploration of the national emissions obligations that would be required to stabilize atmospheric CO2 concentrations at levels now under active ...
  • Pfaff, Alexander Strickland Putalik. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 1996-12)
    This paper analyzes the determinants of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon. From a model of optimal land use, it derives and then estimates a deforestation equation on country-level data for the period 1978 to 1988. The ...
  • Paltsev, Sergey; Reilly, John M.; Sokolov, Andrei (MIT Joint Program, 2013-07-26)
    We offer simulations that help to understand the relationship between GHG emissions and concentrations, and the relative role of long-lived (e.g., CO2) and short-lived (e.g., CH4) emissions. We show that, absent technologies ...
  • Deutch, John M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2005-05)
    Government support of innovation—both technology creation and technology demonstration—is desirable to encourage private investors to adopt new technology. In this paper, I review the government role in encouraging technology ...
  • Gavard, Claire; Winchester, Niven; Jacoby, Henry D.; Paltsev, Sergey (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2011-02)
    In recent United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) negotiations, sectoral mechanisms were proposed as a way to encourage early action and spur investment in low carbon technologies in developing ...
  • Reilly, John; Paltsev, Sergey; Winchester, Niven (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2010-02)
    The potential for greenhouse gas (GHG) restrictions in some nations to drive emission increases in other nations, or leakage, is a contentious issue in climate change negotiations. We evaluate the potential for border ...
  • Qi, Tianyu; Winchester, Niven; Karplus, Valerie J.; Zhang, Xiliang (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2012-10)
    We calculate CO2 emissions embodied in China’s net exports using a multi-regional input-output database. We find that the majority of China’s export-embodied CO2 is associated with production of machinery and equipment ...
  • Schmalensee, Richard.; Stoker, Thomas M.; Judson, Ruth A. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 1996-04)
    Emissions of carbon dioxide from combustion of fossil fuels, which may contribute to long-term climate change, are projected through 2050 using reduced form models estimated with national-level panel data for the period ...
