Climate Change Policies at the U.S. Subnational Level – Evidence and Implications

Discussion Paper
Since the Kyoto Protocol came into force, the U.S. has been effectively pushed onto the sidelines in the area of international climate change politics. In fact, U.S. initiatives so far have by and large been limited to bilateral and regional partnerships to combat climate change through technological innovation. Interestingly, activities at the regional, state, and local levels indicate considerable potential within the American political framework, to develop policies at the subnational level that respond to the challenge of climate change. Senior Researchers, Markus Knigge and Camilla Bausch, published a discussion paper which identifies subnational activities and analyses their impacts on greenhouse gas emissions and policy making at the federal level. The discussion paper is available for download.

Nuclear Phase-out and Renewable Energy in Sweden

July 2005 to August 2005
In 1980, Sweden decided to phase out nuclear energy.
