Taken by storm : the troubled science, policy, and politics of global warming by Christopher Essex( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The physical phenomena in climate and weather are among the most complex in nature, and science can say very little about what they will do in the future. Yet a large international policy framework has been built precisely on the assumption that we know what is happening and how to control it. In Taken by Storm, Christopher Essex and Ross McKitrick prove this assumption false, carefully explaining the science of climate change and deconstructing the widespread myth of global warming. They argue that the connection between science and society is disintegrating, and they propose a vital first step toward repairing this relationship."--Jacket

Comparing capital mobility across provincial and national borders by John F Helliwell( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The persistence of high savings-investment correlations and home-country bias in portfolio construction at the national level is contrasted with new evidence of savings behaviour in Canadian provinces. We confirm that national borders clearly divert flows of capital to domestic investments, but provincial borders have no such effect. In particular, while there is a significant correlation between national savings and investment, among provinces that effect disappears. We discuss the implications for interpreting the distinction between provincial and national borders

The high price of low emissions : benefits and costs of GHG abatement in the transportation sector by Ross McKitrick( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Policymakers often hear calls to reduce private vehicle use and increase use of public transit and other types of mass transportation. But Canadians overwhelmingly depend on the convenience and savings associated with private automobiles. This fact has important implications for understanding the limits to pursuing economically efficient vehicle-related GHG emission reductions, and the potential social costs of trying to engineer a large change in Canadian transportation modes
Climate policy implications of the hiatus in global warming by Ross McKitrick( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The fact that CO2 emissions lead to changes in the atmospheric carbon concentration is not controversial. Nor is the fact that CO2 and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) absorb infrared energy in the atmosphere and contribute tothe overall greenhouse effect. Increases in CO2 levels are therefore expected to lead to atmospheric warming, and this is the basis for the current push to enact policies to reduce GHG emissions
Energy abundance and economic growth international and Canadian evidence by Ross McKitrick( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Economic growth in the modern world is fueled by energy. Although the total size of the economy tends to grow faster than total energy consumption, the two nonetheless trend together over the long run. This raises an important research question: Does economic growth cause an increase in energy consumption, or does an increase in energy availability cause an increase in economic activity, or both?"--
Environmental and Economic Consequences of Ontario's Green Energy Act by Ross McKitrick( )

2 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ontario Green Energy and Green Economy Act (herein the GEA) was passed in May 2009 with the purpose of addressing environmental concerns and promoting economic growth in Ontario. Its centerpiece is a schedule of subsidized electricity purchase contracts called Feed-in-Tariffs (FITs) that provide long-term guarantees of above-market rates for power generated by wind turbine farms, solar panel installations, bio-energy plants and small hydroelectric generators. Development of these power sources was motivated in part by a stated goal of closing the Lambton and Nanticoke coal-fired power plants. This report investigates the effect of the GEA on economic competitiveness in Ontario. It focuses on three questions: (1) Will the GEA materially improve environmental quality in Ontario? (2) Is it a cost-effective plan for accomplishing its goals? (3) Are the economic effects on households and leading economic sectors likely to be positive? The answer to each question is unambiguously negative
Money to burn : assessing the costs and benefits of Canada's strategy for vehicle biofuels by D. A. L Auld( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the turn of the century, biofuels production in the US and Canada has soared more than 8-fold, driven by extremely favourable government support programs. In 2006, the new Conservative government announced its intention to radically accelerate and broaden the existing ethanol support system, beginning a major intrusion into the transportation fuel market. The government's stated goal was to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gasses (GHG) associated with climate change. In this report we investigate, first, whether this is likely to have been achieved, and second, whether the policy yielded benefits commensurate with the costs
Air pollution policy in Canada : improving on success by Ross McKitrick( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes the evolution of Canadian air quality since the early 1970s and discusses the scientific question of whether current air pollution levels are a threat to human health. It then describes the existing structure of Canadian air-pollution policy, including the new focus on ultrafine particles and the introduction of Air Quality Indexes. It concludes by outlining some general principles that should guide policy-makers for developing future air-pollution legislation

Institutions and incentives in regulatory science by Jason Scott Johnston( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Institutions and Incentives in Regulatory Science explores fundamental problems with regulatory science in the environmental and natural resource law field. Each chapter covers a variety of natural resource and regulatory areas, ranging from climate change to endangered species protection and traditional health-based environmental regulation. The contributors in this volume address how institutions for regulatory science should be designed in light of the inevitable misfit between the political or legal demand for regulatory action an
