Pollution and climate
Analyses, articles and publications
Unilateral CO₂ emission reduction can lead to carbon leakage, such as relocation of power-intensive and trade-exposed industries.
Weather and temperatures vary in ways that are difficult to explain and predict precisely. In this article we review data on temperature variations in the past as well possible reasons for these variations.
This paper examines the investment incentives of market-based regulation, with focus on the technology characteristics the different regulatory schemes tend to incentivize.
Abatement can be performed by measures that have an impact on present emissions, but no lasting effect, and by long-lived infrastructure investments.
Technology policy is the most widespread form of climate policy and is often preferred over seemingly efficient carbon pricing.
This paper investigates environmental policy in the presence of endogenous preferences. The optimal time trajectory is achieved if and only if the consumer is perfectly time-consistent.
