Article
Full-text available
Policymakers combine many different policy tools to achieve emission reductions. However, there remains substantial uncertainty around which mixes of policies are effective. This uncertainty stems from the predominant focus of ex post policy evaluation on isolating effects of single, known policies. Here we introduce an approach to identify effecti...

Full-text available
Labour markets of oil-exporting regions will be impacted by a global transition to low-carbon energy as oil demand reduces to meet the aims of the Paris Agreement. Together with direct job losses in the oil and gas industry, indirect employment effects on other sectors should also be considered to ensure a just transition. We explore these direct a...
Article
Full-text available
A rapid decarbonization of the electricity system is urgently required for the Paris Agreement objectives to stand a reasonable chance of being met. While state-owned power companies (SPCs) are the dominant firm type in the global electricity sector, representing nearly two thirds of global electric power generation capacity, most climate policy li...

Full-text available
Quantifying the economic impacts of climate change is crucial to inform mitigation and adaptation policy but faces challenges surrounding impacts of climate extremes and uncertainty around the range of plausible adaptation pathways. We overcome these by using machine learning and econometric model selection to construct an empirically-derived clima...
Preprint
Full-text available
Much of empirical research focuses on forward causal questions ("Does X cause Y?") while answering reverse causal questions ("What causes Y?") can provide invaluable insights but is difficult to implement in practice. Here we operationalise the modelling of reverse causal questions through the detection of unknown treatment assignment and timing as...

The publicly available data on COVID-19 cases provides an opportunity to better understand this new disease. However, strong attention needs to be paid to the limitations of the data to avoid making inaccurate conclusions. This article, which focuses on the relationship between the weather and COVID-19, raises the concern that the same factors infl...

Klimaschutz hat für die Bürgerinnen und Bürger eine sehr hohe Priorität. Dies zeigt sich nicht nur regelmäßig in Befragungen, sondern auch durch die politische Bewegung „Fridays for Future“ bzw. „Klimastreik“. Dennoch bleiben die Anstrengungen, Treibhausgasemissionen zu reduzieren, unzureichend. Ein wesentlicher Grund für das Missverhältnis von Übe...
Article
Full-text available
Empirical evidence suggests that variations in climate affect economic growth across countries over time. However, little is known about the relative impacts of climate change on economic outcomes when global mean surface temperature (GMST) is stabilized at 1.5°C or 2°C warming relative to pre-industrial levels. Here we use a new set of climate sim...

Full-text available
The international community has agreed to decarbonise the economy in order to avoid uncontrollable consequences of climate change. Currently, there are many political measures underway to reach this goal, both on the global and national level. However, these actions are insufficient and often inefficiently designed. This paper illustrates why prote...
