Beal, Colin M.; King, Carey W. (2021): The zero-emissions cost of energy: a policy concept

Beal, Colin M.; King, Carey W. (2021): The zero-emissions cost of energy: a policy concept. In Prog. Energy. DOI: 10.1088/2516-1083/abef1f.

Cherry, Todd L.; et al. (2021): Does solar geoengineering crowd out climate change mitigation efforts? Evidence from a stated preference referendum on a carbon tax

Cherry, Todd L.; Kallbekken, Steffen; Kroll, Stephan; McEvoy, David M. (2021): Does solar geoengineering crowd out climate change mitigation efforts? Evidence from a stated preference referendum on a carbon tax. In Climatic Change 165 (1-2), pp. 1–8. DOI: 10.1007/s10584-021-03009-z.

"Adding to a limited body of empirical evidence, we use a survey experiment to estimate how informing the U.S. public about solar geoengineering impacts support for a proposed national carbon tax. In contrast to the crowding-out hypothesis, we find that respondents who are provided with information about geoengineering are significantly more likely to support the tax."

Driscoll, Daniel (2021): Drivers of Carbon Price Adoption in Wealthy Democracies: International or Domestic Forces?

Driscoll, Daniel (2021): Drivers of Carbon Price Adoption in Wealthy Democracies: International or Domestic Forces? In Socius: Sociological Research for a Dynamic World. DOI: 10.1177/2378023121992252.

"The author argues that the global free-rider problem, posed by nonbinding international climate agreements and lack of enforcement, and fossil fuel business-elite power undermine the force of international values and norms. World society scholarship should attend more to (1) whether international participation incurs substantial local costs or powerful stakeholder opposition and (2) whether the benefits of such participation are more domestically or globally distributed."
