    • The Energy and Economic Impacts of Expanding International Emissions Trading 

      Qi, Tianyu; Winchester, Niven; Karplus, Valerie; Zhang, Xiliang (MIT Joint Program, 2013-08-21)
      Emissions trading systems are recognized as a cost-effective way to facilitate emissions abatement and are expected to play an important role in international cooperation for global climate mitigation. Starting from the ...
    • The Future of U.S. Natural Gas Production, Use, and Trade 

      Paltsev, Sergey; Jacoby, Henry D.; Reilly, John M.; Ejaz, Q.J.; O’Sullivan, F.; e.a. (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 ...
    • The Impact of Border Carbon Adjustments under Alternative Producer Responses 

      Winchester, Niven (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2011-02)
      Border carbon adjustments (BCAs) have been proposed to address leakage and competitiveness concerns. In traditional assessments, firms regard BCAs as output taxes rather than implicit emissions taxes. Using a stylized ...
    • The Impact of Climate Policy on U.S. Aviation 

      Winchester, Niven; Wollersheim, C.; Clewlow, R.; Jost, N.C.; Paltsev, Sergey; e.a. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2011-04)
      We evaluate the impact of an economy-wide cap-and-trade policy on U.S. aviation taking the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (H.R.2454) as a representative example. We use an economywide model to estimate the ...
    • Leackage from Sub-national Climate Initiatives: The Case of California 

      Caron, Justin; Rausch, Sebastian; Winchester, Niven (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2012-05-29)
      With federal policies to curb greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. stagnating, California has taken action on its own. We estimate the impact of California’s cap-and-trade program on the leakage of emissions to other ...
    • Limited Sectoral Trading between the EU ETS and China 

      Gavard, Claire; Winchester, Niven; Paltsev, Sergey (MIT Joint Program, 2013-08-21)
      In the negotiations of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), new market mechanisms are proposed to involve Non-Annex I countries in the carbon markets developed by Annex I countries, beyond ...
    • What to Expect from Sectoral Trading: A U.S.–China Example 

      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 ...
    • Will Border Carbon Adjustments Work? 

      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 ...
    • Will Economic Restructuring in China Reduce Trade-Embodied CO2 Emissions? 

      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 ...
