    Abstract : Particulate matter suspended in air (i.e. aerosol particles) exerts a substantial influence on the climate of our planet and is responsible for causing severe public health problems in many regions across the globe. READ MORE

  4. 4. Land-use competition and agricultural greenhouse gas emissions in a climate change mitigation perspective

    Author : David Bryngelsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []

    Abstract : Productive land for food production, bioenergy, or preservation of nature is a limited resource. Climate change mitigation puts additional pressure on land via higher demand for bioenergy to replace fossil fuels and via restrictions on deforestation—two processes that limit the availability of land for food produc- tion, and may thus also raise food prices.

    Abstract : This thesis consists of three essays.The first essay, “Optimal Carbon and Income Taxation”, analyzes carbon taxation while taking into account that taxes are set by national policy makers. I add two features, namely distortionary income taxation and lack of commitment to future policies, to a standard climate-economy model. READ MORE
