  • The 'best available science' to inform 1.5°C policy choices 

    Peters, Glen Philip (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
    An IPCC Special Report on 1.5 °C should focus on resolving fundamental scientific and political uncertainties, not fixate on developing unachievable mitigation pathways.
  • The trouble with negative emissions 

    Anderson, K; Peters, Glen Philip (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
    n December 2015, member states of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) adopted the Paris Agreement, which aims to hold the increase in the global average temperature to below 2°C and to pursue ...
  • COMPARING THE GTAP-MRIO AND WIOD DATABASES FOR CARBON FOOTPRINT ANALYSIS 

    Arto, I; Rueda-Cantuche, JM; Peters, Glen Philip (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
    We explore two different worldwide multi-regional input–output (MRIO) databases (Global Trade Analysis Project-MRIO and World Input–Output Database) for the calculation of the global carbon footprint (CF) of nations. We ...
  • In the light of equity and science: scientific expertise and climate justice after Paris 

    Lahn, Bård (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
    The Paris Agreement is built on a tension between the common goal of limiting warming to 1.5 °C, and the differentiation that follows from the principle of equity. Scientific expertise is commonly seen as providing important ...
  • Reaching peak emissions 

    Jackson, Robert B; Canadell, Josep G.; Le Quéré, Corinne; Andrew, Robbie; Korsbakken, Jan Ivar; Peters, Glen Philip; Nakicenovic, Neboisa (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
    Rapid growth in global CO2 emissions from fossil fuels and industry ceased in the past two years, despite continued economic growth. Decreased coal use in China was largely responsible, coupled with slower global growth ...
  • Climate impacts of short-lived climate forcers versus CO2 from biodiesel: A case of the EU on-road sector 

    Lund, Marianne Tronstad; Berntsen, Terje Koren; Fuglestvedt, Jan S. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014)
    Biofuels are proposed to play an important role in several mitigation strategies to meet future CO2 emission targets for the transport sector but remain controversial due to significant uncertainties in net impacts on ...
  • Regional temperature change potentials for short-lived climate forcers based on radiative forcing from multiple models 

    Aamaas, Borgar; Berntsen, Terje Koren; Fuglestvedt, Jan S.; Shine, Keith P; Collins, William J (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    We calculate the absolute regional temperature change potential (ARTP) of various short-lived climate forcers (SLCFs) based on detailed radiative forcing (RF) calculations from four different models. The temperature response ...
  • Atmospheric methane evolution the last 40 years 

    Dalsøren, Stig Bjørløw; Myhre, Cathrine Lund; Myhre, Gunnar; Gomez-Pelaez, Angel J.; Søvde, Ole Amund; Isaksen, Ivar S A; Weiss, Ray F.; Harth, Christina M. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
    Observations at surface sites show an increase in global mean surface methane (CH4) of about 180 parts per billion (ppb) (above 10 %) over the period 1984–2012. Over this period there are large fluctuations in the annual ...
  • Sharing a quota on cumulative carbon emissions 

    Raupach, Michael R.; Davis, Steven J.; Peters, Glen Philip; Andrew, Robbie; Canadell, Josep G.; Friedlingstein, Pierre; Jotzo, Frank; Le Quéré, Corinne (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014)
    Any limit on future global warming is associated with a quota on cumulative global CO2 emissions. We translate this global carbon quota to regional and national scales, on a spectrum of sharing principles that extends from ...
  • Driving forces in energy-related carbon dioxide emissions in east and south coastal China: commonality and variations 

    Gao, Chaochao; Liu, Yonghong; Jin, Jun; Wei, Taoyuan; Zhang, Jianying; Zhu, Lizhong (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
    As the world's top carbon dioxide emitter, China is expected to reach its emissions peak by 2030. East and south coastal China contribute nearly one-third of the emissions in China, and therefore play a critical role in ...
