  • Regional and Sectoral Estimates of the Social Cost of Carbon: An Application of FUND 

    Anthoff, David; Rose, Steven K.; Waldhoff, Stephanie; TOL, RICHARD S. J. (ESRI, 2011)
    The social cost of carbon is an estimate of the benefit of reducing CO2 emissions by one ton today. As such it is a key input into cost-benefit analysis of climate policy and regulation. We provide a set of new estimates ...
  • The Research Output of Business Schools and Business Scholars in Ireland 

    TOL, RICHARD S. J. (ESRI, 2010)
    The research performance of business scholars on the island of Ireland is evaluated based on their number of publication, number of citations, h-index and the same divided by the numbers of years since the first publication. ...
  • Schelling's Conjecture on Climate and Development: A Test 

    ANTHOFF, DAVID; TOL, RICHARD S. J. (ESRI, 10/06/2011)
    We use the integrated assessment model FUND to compute the income elasticities of climate change impacts for different world regions over time. We find limited support for Schelling?s Conjecture that development might be ...
  • Shapley Values for Assessing Research Production and Impact of Schools and Scholars 

    TOL, RICHARD S. J. (ESRI, 2011)
    Performance measures of individual scholars tend to ignore the context. I introduce contextualised metrics: cardinal and ordinal pseudo-Shapley values that measure a scholar??s contribution to (perhaps power over) her own ...
  • The Social Cost of Carbon 

    TOL, RICHARD S. J. (ESRI, 28/02/2011)
    This paper surveys the literature on the economic impact of climate change. Different methods have been used to estimate the impact of climate change on human welfare. Studies agree that there are positive and negative ...
  • Socioeconomic Distribution of Emissions and Resource Use in Ireland 

    TOL, RICHARD S. J.; LYONS, SEAN (ESRI, 01/03/2012)
    This paper uses the ESRI's ISus model to explore the distributional differences in emissions by household type. Most greenhouse gas and metal emissions are emitted via indirect means, although direct sources of emissions ...
  • The Energy and Environment Review 2010 

    MURPHY, LIAM; HENNESSY, HUGH; DEVITT, CONOR; LYONS, SEÁN; TOL, RICHARD S. J. (ESRI, 2010)
    The Energy and Environment Review 2010 reviews trends in energy use and emissions to the environment for the period 1990-2008 and projects these trends for the period 2009-2025. We show results for two alternative ...
  • The Time Evolution of the Social Cost of Carbon: An Application of FUND 

    TOL, RICHARD S. J. (ESRI, 05/09/2011)
    We estimate the growth rate of the social cost of carbon. This is an indication of the optimal rate of acceleration of greenhouse gas emission reduction policy over time. We find that the social cost of carbon increases ...
  • Trade Liberalisation and Climate Change: A CGE Analysis of the Impacts on Global Agriculture 

    Calzadilla, Alvaro; Rehdan, Katrin; TOL, RICHARD S. J. (ESRI, 2011)
    Based on predicted changes in the magnitude and distribution of global precipitation, temperature and river flow under the IPCC SRES A1B and A2 scenarios, this study assesses the potential impacts of climate change and CO2 ...
  • Trends in Air Pollution in Ireland: A Decomposition Analysis 

    TOL, RICHARD S. J. (ESRI, 13/02/2012)
    Trends in the emissions to air of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, and ammonia in Ireland are analysed with a logarithmic mean Divisia index decomposition for the period of ...
  • UK Tourists, The Great Recession and Irish Tourism Policy 

    TOL, RICHARD S. J.; CALLAGHAN, NIAMH (ESRI, 27/10/2011)
    Inbound tourism to Ireland fell sharply in 2009 and 2010. Visits to Ireland from the UK, the dominant country of origin of visitors to Ireland, did not fall faster than UK visits elsewhere. We use micro-data for UK travellers ...
  • The Uncertainty about the Social Cost of Carbon: A Decomposition Analysis Using FUND 

    TOL, RICHARD S. J. (ESRI, 01/09/2011)
    We report the results of an uncertainty decomposition analysis of the social cost of carbon as estimated by FUND, a model that has a more detailed representation of the economic impact of climate change than any other ...
  • The Uncertainty about the Total Economic Impact of Climate Change 

    TOL, RICHARD S. J. (ESRI, 14/04/2011)
    This paper uses a vote-counting procedure to estimate the probability density function of the total economic impact as a parabolic function of global warming. There is a wide range of uncertainty about the impact of climate ...
