    • The CO2 Content of Consumption Across US Regions: A Multi-Regional Input-Output (MRIO) Approach 

      Caron, J.; Metcalf, G.; Reilly, J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-08)
      We improve on existing estimates of the carbon dioxide (CO2) content of consumption across regions of the United States. Using a multi-regional input-output (MRIO) framework, we estimate the direct and indirect CO2 emissions ...
    • Costs of Climate Mitigation Policies 

      Chen, Y.-H.H.; Babiker, M.; Paltsev, S.; Reilly, J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2016-03)
      The wide range of cost estimates for stabilizing climate is puzzling to policy makers as well as researchers. Assumptions about technology costs have been studied extensively as one reason for these differences. Here, we ...
    • Electricity Generation and Emissions Reduction Decisions under Policy Uncertainty: A General Equilibrium Analysis 

      Morris, J.; Webster, M.; Reilly, J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-04)
      The electric power sector, which accounts for approximately 40% of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions, will be a critical component of any policy the U.S. government pursues to confront climate change. In the context of uncertainty ...
    • Emissions Pricing to Stablize Global Climate 

      Bosetti, V.; Paltsev, S.; Reilly, J.; Carraro, C. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2012-03)
      In the absence of significant greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation, many analysts project that atmospheric concentrations of species identified for control in the Kyoto protocol could exceed 1000 ppm (carbon-dioxide-equivalent) ...
    • A Framework for Analysis of the Uncertainty of Socioeconomic Growth and Climate Change on the Risk of Water Stress: a Case Study in Asia 

      Fant, C.; Schlosser, C.A.; Gao, X.; Strzepek, K.; Reilly, J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-11)
      The sustainability of future water resources is of paramount importance and is affected by many factors, including population, wealth and climate. Inherent in how these factors change in the future is the uncertainty of ...
    • Impacts of CO2 Mandates for New Cars in the European Union 

      Paltsev, S.; Chen, Y.-H.H.; Karplus, V.; Kishimoto, P.; Reilly, J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2015-05)
      CO2 emissions mandates for new light-duty passenger vehicles have recently been adopted in the European Union (EU), which require steady reductions to 95 g CO2/km in 2021. Using a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model, ...
    • Modeling Uncertainty in Climate Change: A Multi-Model Comparison 

      Gillingham, K.; Nordhaus, W.; Anthoff, D.; Blanford, G.; Bosetti, V.; e.a. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2015-12)
      The economics of climate change involves a vast array of uncertainties, complicating both the analysis and development of climate policy. This study presents the results of the first comprehensive study of uncertainty in ...
    • Probabilistic projections of the future climate for the world and the continental USA 

      Sokolov, A.; Gao, X.; Paltsev, S.; Monier, E.; Chen, H.; e.a. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2017-09)
      In this paper, we study possible impacts of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on the 21st century climate on the continental USA using the MIT Integrated Global System Model (IGSM) framework. Climate change ...
    • The Revenue Implications of a Carbon Tax 

      Yuan, M.; Metcalf, G.E.; Reilly, J.; Paltsev, S. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2017-07)
      A primary reason for implementing a carbon or greenhouse gas tax is to reduce emissions, but in recent years there has been increased interest in a carbon tax’s revenue potential. This revenue could be used for federal ...
