Reduced damage to health and environment from energy saving: A methodology for integrated assessment applied to a case study in Hungary

Kristin Aunan (Working Paper;1998:13)

Environmental problems have different characteristics in terms of space and time. Noise, for instance, affects only those being close to the source, and the problem is instantly solved for these if the source is removed. Health effects resulting from local sources of air pollutants may disappear ver...

Science-policy interaction in the global greenhouse: Institutional design and institutional performance in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

Tora Skodvin (Working Paper;1999:03)

Research input constitutes a key component in the development of effective international environmental regimes. Scientific knowledge is called for not only in the design of policies that are effective in terms of solving the problems for which they were designed, but also (increasingly) in the ident...

The Impact of Trial Runs on the Acceptability of Pigouvian Taxes: Experimental Evidence

Todd Cherry, Steffen Kallbekken, Stephan Kroll (Working Paper;2011:01)

This paper examines the political difficulty of enacting welfare-enhancing Pigouvian taxes. Using referenda in a market experiment with externalities, we investigate the effect of trial periods on the acceptability of two theoretically equivalent variants of Pigouvian taxes. While implementing eithe...

A simple model for scenario studies of changes in global climate: Version 1.0

Jan S. Fuglestvedt, Terje K. Berntsen (Working Paper;1999:02)

This paper gives a documentation of a simple climate model for studying the effects of future climate gas emissions on global mean temperature and sea level. Input to the model is global emissions of 29 gases. Atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) is calculated on the basis of work publi...

A comparison of taxes and tradable permits in national climate policy

Bjart Holtsmark (Working Paper;1999:08)

This article discusses domestic climate policy design in a country that has made a binding commitment to the Kyoto Protocol but at the same time want to limit the number of industry shutdowns that follows from the policy. It is furthermore considered how public budget constraints might affect climat...

Kostnadseffektiv klimapolitikk med doble gevinster

Bjart Holtsmark (Working Paper;1999:06)

Publikajsonen drøfter valg og dosering av klimapolitiske tiltak i et land som er bundet av en utslippsforpliktelse i Kyotoprotokollen, men samtidig tar hensyn til en offentlig budsjettbetingelse. Antakelsen om at en klimagassavgift skal være lik kvoteprisen internasjonalt nyanseres. Det vises at...
