Klimaet er i endring!

Knut H. Alfsen (Policy Note;2001:02)

FNs klimapanel (IPCC) ferdigstilte i 2001 sin tredje hovedrapport. En sentral konklusjon er at vi kan vente fortsatte klimaendringer de nærmeste tiårene selv hvis det gjøres en betydelig innsats for å begrense utslippene av klimagasser. Derfor er beredskap for og tilpasning til klimaendringer en nød...

Climate change and sustainability in Europe

Knut H. Alfsen (Policy Note;2001:03)

This paper discusses the climate history of the Earth, exploring some of the driving forces of climate change along the way. It points out that it may not be the gradual increase in global mean temperature that we have to fear the most. Rather the variability of the climate may pose an even greater...

On the question of PPP corrections to the SRES scenarios

Knut H. Alfsen, Holtsmark, Bjart (Policy Note;2004:01)

Ian Castles and David Henderson have criticized IPCC’s Special Report on Emissions Scenarios (SRES) (IPCC, 2000) for using market exchange rates (MER) instead of purchasing power parities (PPP) when converting regional GDP into a common denominator. The consequence is that poor countries generally a...

Historiens kraftlinjer: Klimapolitiske posisjoner og strategier overfor utslippsintensiv industri i fem norske industrikommuner

Sjur Kasa (Policy Note;2003:01)

Hvilke posisjoner har norske industrikommuner i den politiske prosessen rundt reguleringer av utslipp av klimagasser fra industrien og hvilke strategier anvender de for å vinne fram? Dette spørsmålet blir belyst gjennom intervjuer med den politiske ledelsen i fem norske industrikommuner. Konklusjone...

United States participation in future climate agreements: An assessment

Tjernshaugen, Andreas (Policy Note;2005:01)

The report identifies the major obstacles to U.S. participation in an international treaty to control greenhouse gas emissions, and suggests some possible strategies for reengaging the United States. It proceeds as follows: Section one outlines the U.S. climate policy process up to the present. Sect...

The use of PPP or MER in the construction of emission scenarios is more than a question of "metrics"

Knut H. Alfsen, Holtsmark, Bjart (Policy Note;2004:03)

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s Special Report on Emissions Scenarios (SRES, IPCC, 2000) has been a matter of debate since Ian Castles and David Henderson claimed that the scenarios were based on unsound economics giving rise to improbably high emission growth. A main point in...

Would including more source species enhance the cost-effectiveness of climate policy?

Asbjørn Torvanger (Policy Note;2004:02)

Incorporating ozone precursors and particle emissions in future climate policy agreements could improve the level of cost-effectiveness, but would also add complexity and complications to negotiation, reporting and implementation. To assess the cost saving potential, a case study of Norway is carrie...

A Kantian approach to a sustainable development indicator for climate

Knut H. Alfsen, Ericson, Torgeir, Stoknes, Per Espen, Greaker, Mads (Working Paper;2012:02)

How can the informed citizen know if the government is implementing a good-enough climate change policy? Most developed democracies have their own set of indicators for sustainable development, including indicators for climate change. These include yearly national emissions of greenhouse gasses (GHG...
