RFF Analyzes CES in Response to Senate White Paper Questions
RFF experts submitted key findings from their research and modeling in response to Senate questions on a Clean Energy Standard (CES).
Who’s Benefiting from the National Flood Insurance Program?
New analysis from RFF looks at a quarter century of federal flood insurance data to determine whether the benefits of the program are tied to income.
An Economic Case for a Carbon Tax Policy
Taking a step back and looking broadly at climate policy, a new RFF Discussion Paper reevaluates the three main options for moving climate legislation forward: cap-and-trade, a carbon tax, and regulatory alternatives.
Greenhouse Gas Regulation under the Clean Air Act: A Guide for Economists
In a new Discussion Paper, RFF researchers explore the regulatory tools and options provided by the Clean Air Act for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the potential legislative challenges and economic opportunities.
Tracking Trees and Change
Reducing deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) — a critical step toward halting climate change — requires multiple tools to track changes in the forest, the land, and the global marketplace. Panelists at a recent RFF seminar highlighted innovative forest carbon supply tools that are now available and defined the role for such tools in the international REDD process.
Can a Stew of Power Generation Regulations Clear the Air?
EPA is issuing major rules to reduce conventional pollutants (including SO2 and NOx) that will cost the electric utility sector tens of billions of dollars per year for costly new emissions-control equipment. Visiting Fellows Arthur Fraas and Randall Lutter ask, is it worth it?
In The Medium Run, CAFE Costs Decrease
With Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards expected to increase, a new RFF Discussion Paper assesses the medium-run costs associated with the increase, how they compare to the short-run and long-run adjustments, and how consumers will react to the increase in fuel economy.
Are Energy Efficiency Standards Economically Efficient?
With a portfolio of emissions reductions options available, pulling the proper policy lever can be tricky. New analysis suggests that energy efficiency standards don’t look that promising on economic grounds, either on their own or in combination with pricing instruments.
REDD+ Credits: Feasible Supply Less Than Expected
With expectations high over the prospect of REDD+ in the next few years, a new RFF Issue Brief finds the feasible potential of these credits is actually much lower than some models predict.
Embracing Green-Growth Diplomacy
With the world gearing up for another round of international climate negotiations, RFF Visiting Scholar Nigel Purvis says it is time to jumpstart the transition to low emissions development by reinventing global climate diplomacy.
Video Now Available: The Road Ahead for CAFE
While CAFE standards changed very little over the past 20 years, they will tighten substantially over the next decade. Watch RFF’s panel of experts discuss what lies ahead for fuel efficiency standards in the United States.
Climate, Trade, and International Interconnectivity
A new RFF Discussion Paper takes a closer look at the intersection of domestic climate change policies and international trade.
Saving America’s Land and Ecosystems
Some 30 million acres in the United States comprise the federal land preservation effort known as the Conservation Reserve Program. An RFF First Wednesday seminar panel discusses the impact of this policy on ecosystem services, agriculture, land use, and more.
Banking Emissions Allowances: A Checkered Legacy
The treatment of banked emissions allowances under a series of cap-and-trade systems to curb major air pollutants has produced mixed results.
Can States Allay Risks from Hurricanes and Earthquakes?
Insurance for damages from natural catastrophes provided by many states affords property owners coverage when they are unable to find it in the private market.
CAA@40: Phil Sharp on Anniversary of Clean Air Act
At a conference commemorating the 40th anniversary of the passage of the Clean Air Act, Phil Sharp reflects on the impact of the law on U.S. climate and energy policy.
The Effects of Transport Regulations on the Oil Market: Does Market Power Matter?
Market power can influence the outcome of transport regulations, according to the authors of a new RFF discussion paper.
How Do You Put a Price on Ecological Damage from Marine Oil Pollution?
In the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill, attempts will be made to put an economic value on the ecological damage caused. How will this be done, and can we do a better job than in the past?
Who Bears the Long-Term Costs of Stricter Anti-Spill Policy?
It's not who you think, according to RFF Senior Fellow Timothy Brennan. In a new policy brief, he explains that the long-term costs of ratcheting up liability for oil spills like the recent tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico will be borne not primarily by companies involved in oil exploration.
Cutting Plastic Pollution with a Levy on Bags
In a new paper from the Environment for Development initiative, authors Johane Dikgang and Martine Visser look at plastic bag regulation in Botswana – and whether or not it is working.
