Several studies have found that taxing vehicle purchase or ownership on the basis of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions reduces CO2 emissions.

Employing hourly data records from 2013 and 2014 in Beijing, investigate the causal effects of vehicle traffic on air pollution.

Energy efficiency standards based on product attributes may interact with market conditions and affect the overall stringency of the standards. In this paper analyze the interaction between gasoline prices and the redesigned and tightened federal fuel economy standards.

More than 40 percent of US corn is now used to produce biofuels, which are used as substitutes for gasoline in transportation.

Using a unique city-level panel on the daily air pollution index (API) and fine-scale meteorological data from 2009 to 2013 in China, examine the existence and the magnitude of spatial spillover effects of urban air pollution in Chinese cities.

Biofuels production has received increasing focus by developed and developing countries due to rising fossil fuel prices and the need to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. The net economic and environmental impacts of biofuel programs have become an important question of public policy.

We synthesize literature on the spatial aspects of coupled natural-human systems across a variety of natural resource contexts and introduce a framework that can be used to compare modeling approaches and findings across applications.

The development of climate policy in the United States mirrors international developments, with efforts to initiate a coordinated approach giving way to jurisdictions separately taking actions.

Methane is the second most prevalent anthropogenic greenhouse gas emitted in the United States and has a global warming potential 28–34 times higher than carbon dioxide over a

The ban on US crude oil exports began as a reaction to the oil embargo in the early 1970s and later was codified in law and Department of Commerce rules for granting export permits.
