    Hovi, Jon; Sprinz, Detlef F.; Bang, Guri (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
    According to two-level game theory, negotiators tailor agreements at the international level to be ratifiable at the domestic level. This did not happen in the Kyoto negotiations, however, in the US case. We interviewed ...

    Kipling, Zak; Stier, Philip; Johnson, Colin E.; Mann, Graham W.; Bellouin, Nicolas; Bauer, Susanne E.; Bergman, Tommi; Chin, Mian; Diehl, Thomas; Ghan, Steven John; Iversen, Trond; Kirkevåg, Alf; Kokkola, Harri; Liu, Xiaohong; Luo, Gan; van Noije, Twan P.C.; Pringle, Kirsty J.; von Salzen, Knut; Schulz, Michael; Seland, Øyvind; Skeie, Ragnhild Bieltvedt; Takemura, Toshihiko; Tsigaridis, Kostas; Zhang, Kai (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
    he vertical profile of aerosol is important for its radiative effects, but weakly constrained by observations on the global scale, and highly variable among different models. To investigate the controlling factors in one ...
  • Distributive fairness: A mutual recognition approach 

    Underdal, Arild; Wei, Taoyuan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
    Can norms of distributive fairness serve as pillars of a new and more effective global climate regime? Three general principles – responsibilities, capabilities (capacity), and needs (or rights) – are frequently invoked ...
  • The political feasibility of potent enforcement in a post-Kyoto climate agreement 

    Aakre, Stine (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
    To be effective, a post-Kyoto climate agreement must secure significant greenhouse gas emissions reductions by all (key) emitters. Potent participation and compliance enforcement will be required to make it in every key ...
  • Reducing uncertainties in decadal variability of the global carbon budget with multiple datasets 

    Li, Wei; Ciais, Philippe; Wang, Yilong; Peng, Shushi; Broquet, Grégoire; Ballantyne, Ashley P.; Canadell, Josep G.; Cooper, Leila; Friedlingstein, Pierre; Le Quéré, Corinne; Myneni, Ranga B.; Peters, Glen Philip; Piao, Shilong; Pongratz, Julia (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
    Conventional calculations of the global carbon budget infer the land sink as a residual between emissions, atmospheric accumulation, and the ocean sink. Thus, the land sink accumulates the errors from the other flux terms ...
  • Internasjonale klimaforhandlinger: Nøkkelaktører og Norges handlingsrom 

    Bang, Guri (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
  • A multi-method evaluation of the potential for using the electricity bill to encourage energy savings in Norwegian households 

    Westskog, Hege; Sælen, Håkon (Journal article, 2013)
    This study explores whether the electricity bill can be used as a medium to deliver information that encourages energy conservation in Norwegian households. Two main categories of information were tested: social comparative ...
  • Percentile indices for assessing changes in heavy precipitation events 

    Schaer, Christoph; Ban, Nikolina; Fischer, Erich M.; Rajczak, Jan; Schmidli, Juerg; Frei, Christoph; Giorgi, Filippo; Karl, Thomas R.; Kendon, Elisabeth J.; Klein Tank, Albert M. G.; O'Gorman, Paul A.; Sillmann, Jana; Zhang, Xuebin; Zwiers, Francis W. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
    Many climate studies assess trends and projections in heavy precipitation events using precipitation percentile (or quantile) indices. Here we investigate three different percentile indices that are commonly used. We ...
  • Household Energy Use and Carbon Emissions in China: A decomposition analysis 

    Zhu, Qin; Wei, Taoyuan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
    Although its per capita carbon emissions are still relatively low, China’s aggregated carbon emissions have grown by nearly 4-fold in the last three decades, and now it is the biggest CO2 emitter in the world. There are ...
  • Climate change impacts on crop yield: Evidence from China 

    Wei, Taoyuan; Cherry, Todd; Glomsrød, Solveig; Zhang, Tianyi (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
    When estimating climate change impact on crop yield, a typical assumption is constant elasticity of yield with respect to a climate variable even though the elasticity may be inconstant. After estimating both constant and ...
  • Wave transition in household energy use 

    Zhang, Rui; Wei, Taoyuan; Sun, Jie; Shi, Qinghua (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
    The energy ladder model and energy stacking model have been proposed in the literature to describe the relations between income growth and transition of energy consumed by households. Both models are largely descriptive ...
