The oil market has been turned upside down over the past two years. How will future policies, designed to meet the Paris climate agreement, shape the future of oil demand?
Because of the growing chemical and geological diversity of the new oils, the lack of alternative liquid fuels for transportation, and the size and global scope of oil production and trade, a tax is most needed in the oil sector.
For the first time, it is possible to estimate the value and profile of GHG emissions from oils throughout their supply chain using an Oil-Climate Index. This allows for the replacement of blunt tax designs with a smart tax that captures oil’s total emissions with minimal economic cost and maximum efficiency.
Promethean changes are poised to reshape the transport sector, with significant implications for the greenhouse gas emissions of twenty-first century mobility. Will autonomous vehicles prove to be a climate policy tool, or a climate policy challenge?
A half-day event on the connection between air quality and climate change and how it might be expected to shape the global energy innovation agenda in the years to come.
Policies promoting the transition to low-carbon-vehicle technology will help achieve global climate goals at negligible cost to oil consumers.
California has for too long turned a blind eye to squarely managing its own oil, choosing instead to target other states’ and countries’ fossil fuels.
Reducing oil consumption will not only benefit the European nations in the short term; it will put the EU in a strong global leadership position on the road out of the Paris climate talks and beyond.
This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the Arctic Council, with the United States handing over its rotating chairmanship to Finland. How can environmental and economic imperatives be balanced over the long-term?
The oil price crash has implications for the global economy, geopolitics, and efforts to limit carbon emissions.
