Recent literature on the health impacts of CO2 emissions suggests a variety of factors that may establish a more robust link. However, no previous study has explored the role of research and development (R&D) in explaining the nexus between CO2 emissions and health outcomes. Using data for Saudi Arabia over the period 2000–2018, this paper investig...
Article

While global warming and climate change associated with increasing carbon dioxide are widely seen to be one of the most serious worldwide dangers to population health, little is known regarding “how” country alters the linkage between increasing CO2 emissions and population health outcomes. Current literature on the health effects of CO2 emissions...

The general fractional conformable derivative (GCD) and its attributes have been described by researchers in the recent times. Compared with other fractional derivative definitions, this derivative presents a generalization of the conformable derivative and follows the same derivation formulae. For electrical circuits, such as RLC, RC, and LC, we o...
Article
Full-text available
This research paper attempts to investigate both the long-run and causality relationship among electric power consumption (EPC), technological transfer, financial development (FD), and environmental quality for the Saudi Arabia (KSA) economy from 1980 to 2019. In doing so, we propose a carbon emission function tested by incorporating multi-steps te...
Article
Full-text available
This study tries to explore empirically the nature of the link among energy consumption, environmental degradation, trade, industrialization, urbanization, and economic growth concerning the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's economy for a time series of data spanning from 1971 to 2019. To investigate the cointegration, the long-run relationship, and to dec...
Article
This research article investigates the association between electric power consumption (henceforth EPC), information and communication technologies (ICTs), economic progress (EP), and environmental damage (ED) for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) economy with data spanning from 1980 to 2019. Economic openness (EO) and urbanization are involved with...
Article
Energy consumption in Saudi Arabia is still almost three times the world average today, and the government is seeking to instill a culture of energy saving in the rising generation. Our research's main objective is to expose young people's explanatory attitude antecedents towards energy saving. Indeed, with reference to the current global context o...
Article
Full-text available
This inquiry contributes to the previous literature by analyzing the empirical linkage between the development of the financial sector and carbon emissions in the presence of good governance. Specifically, we examine the ability of good governance in moderating the negative effect of financial development on environmental quality in Saudi Arabia ov...

h i g h l i g h t s • Investigate the relationship between economic growth (EG) and energy consumption (EC) for the 34 OECD. • Examine growth-energy nexus, energy-growth nexus and the two-way linkages between them. • Empirical results confirm the positive and significant causality relationship between EG and EC (feedback effect). Available online x...
Article
This study examined the four-way linkages between electricity consumption, CO2 emissions, R&D stocks and economic growth for the MCs over the 1990–2016 periods, by implementing several estimators: SUR, 3SLS and GMM. The specification of these econometric techniques is that the four sets of equations (electricity, CO2, R&D and growth models) are est...
Article
This study aims at examining the short-run and long-run causal link between economic growth, energy consumption and financial development by using data set of 6 SMCs for the 1995–2015 periods. The basic testing procedure requires four steps: ADF and PP unit root tests, Bound tests for Co-integration, ARDL approach and VECM method. The results confi...
Article
Since the early 90s, after the implementation of various regulatory multinational agreements, debates about the impacts of environmental quality on international trade and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) have been increased considerably. This article tackles this issue for 14 home countries and 39 host countries for 6 Regional Trade Agreements (RTA...

Regional trade agreements (RTA) strengthening is a crucial component of the contemporary global economy. These agreements are considered beneficial in many senses (economics: trade, FDI, growth, etc.) and are a stabilizing factor in international relations (politics). In this paper, I study the effects of RTAs on exports between members and non-mem...
