Demographic Heterogeneity in IAMs, Implications for Emissions, Mitigation and Impacts, Bas van Ruijven

Feb 11, 2015  ·  4:30 p.m. 6:00 p.m.  ·  Guyot Hall, Room M171

This event is part of CFI Spring 2015 Integrated Assessment Modeling Seminar Series

Increasing the level of demographic heterogeneity in integrated assessment models has been a major development over the past decade (Krey, 2014; van Ruijven et al., 2008). So far, most studies have focused on the implications of changes in the demographic structure on energy use and emissions. Some examples of this include the effects of an ageing population on energy use and emissions (Dalton et al., 2008), implications of different levels of population growth (O'Neill et al., 2010), the consequents of urbanization (Krey et al., 2012; O'Neill et al., 2012) and the effects of changes in income distribution (Ekholm et al., 2010; van Ruijven et al., 2011) and electricity access (Pachauri et al., 2013; van Ruijven et al., 2012).

Bas van Ruijven is Project Scientist II with the Integrated Assessment Modeling group at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, CO

Hans Morgenthau and Nuclear Catastrophe: Lessons for Thinking About Climate Change, Alison McQueen

Feb 19, 2015  ·  4:30 p.m. 6:00 p.m.  ·  Marx Hall 301

This event is part of CFI Spring 2015 Seminar Series

Alison McQueen (BA, Guelph; MA, Toronto; PhD, Cornell) is an Assistant Professor of Political Science. Her research focuses primarily on the intersection of religion and politics in early modern political thought, the history of international relations thought, and the use of digital methods in political theory. She is the author of Political Realism in Apocalyptic Times (manuscript), which explores how Niccolò Machiavelli, Thomas Hobbes, and Hans Morgenthau responded to hopes and fears about the end of the world. While at Princeton, she is working on a book on Thomas Hobbes’ uses of the Hebrew Bible.

Modelling Climate Impact on Economic Growth: More Harm, More Uncertainty or None of the Above? Céline Guivarch

Apr 22, 2015  ·  4:30 p.m. 6:00 p.m.  ·  Guyot Hall, Room M171

This event is part of CFI Spring 2015 Integrated Assessment Modeling Seminar Series

Céline Guivarch is an economist at École des Ponts ParisTech, CIRED (International Research Center on Environment and Development). She develops and uses models, from analytical “toys” to complex Integrated Assessment Models, to explore the interactions between economic dynamics, energy systems evolutions and the environment. She is particularly interested in the role of uncertainty for climate policies decisions and for socio-economic scenarios for climate change research. She teaches Environmental and Resources Economics in an Advanced Master in Public Policies for Sustainable Development.

Equity Weighting and the Social Cost of Carbon, David Anthoff

This event is part of CFI Spring 2015 Integrated Assessment Modeling Seminar Series

David Anthoff is an environmental economist who studies climate change and environmental policy. He co-develops the integrated assessment model FUND that is used widely in academic research and in policy analysis. His research has appeared in Science, the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, Environmental and Resource Economics, the Oxford Review of Economic Policy and other academic journals. He contributed a background research paper to the Stern Review and has advised numerous organizations (including US EPA and the Canadian National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy) on the economics of climate change.
