    • Assessment of U.S. Cap-and-Trade Proposals 

      Paltsev, Sergey; Reilly, John M.; Jacoby, Henry D.; Gurgel, Angelo C.; Metcalf, Gilbert E.; e.a. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2007-04)
      The MIT Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis model is applied to an assessment of a set of cap-and-trade proposals being considered by the U.S. Congress in spring 2007. The bills specify emissions reductions to be ...
    • A Forward Looking Version of the MIT Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis (EPPA) Model 

      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 ...
    • Potential Land Use Implications of a Global Biofuels Industry 

      Gurgel, Angelo C.; Reilly, John M.; Paltsev, Sergey. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2008-03)
      In this paper we investigate the potential production and implications of a global biofuels industry. We develop alternative approaches to the introduction of land as an economic factor input, in value and physical terms, ...
    • U.S. Greenhouse Gas Cap-and-Trade Proposals: Application of a Forward-Looking Computable General Equilibrium Model 

      Gurgel, Angelo C.; Paltsev, Sergey; Reilly, John M.; Metcalf, Gilbert E. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2007-06)
      We develop a forward-looking version of the MIT Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis (EPPA) model, and apply it to examine the economic implications of proposals in the U.S. Congress to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) ...
    • Unintended Environmental Consequences of a Global Biofuels Program 

      Melillo, Jerry M.; Gurgel, Angelo C.; Kicklighter, David W.; Reilly, John M.; Cronin, Timothy W.; e.a. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2009-01)
      Biofuels are being promoted as an important part of the global energy mix to meet the climate change challenge. The environmental costs of biofuels produced with current technologies at small scales have been studied, but ...
