OECD WORKING PAPERS
Contact the OECD Economics Dept. (2, rue André-Pascal, 75775 Paris
Cedex 16, France) for copies of the following. (Numbers 110, 111 and 112 were
listed in the Oct. 1992 GCCD by title only.) Reports were written by
OECD staff unless otherwise indicated.
Energy Taxation and Price Distortions in Fossil Fuel Markets: Some
Implications for Climate Change Policy (No. 110), P. Hoeller, J. Coppel, 35
pp., 1992. Examines the relationship between energy prices and carbon emissions,
and uses an energy demand system model to simulate tax proposals such as that
being considered by the EC.
Global 2100: Alternative Scenarios for Reducing Carbon Emissions
(No. 111), A.S. Manne (Stanford Univ.), 28 pp., 1992. Projects CO2 emissions
through the next century, and analyzes carbon taxes and output costs for
The Welfare Effects of Fossil Carbon Restrictions: Results from a
Recursively Dynamic Trade Model (No. 112), T. Rutherford (Univ. Western
Ontario), 30 pp., 1992. Compares results from six global models of a set of
standardized reduction scenarios. (See Working Paper Nos. 111, 113, 114, 115,
Use of the Edmonds-Reilly Model to Model Energy-Related
Greenhouse Gas Emissions (No. 113), D.W. Barns et al. (Pacific Northwest
Lab., Washington, D.C.), J.A. Edmonds, J.M. Reilly, 48 pp., 1992.
Carbon Taxes and CO2 Emissions Targets: Results from the IEA Model
(No. 114), E.L. Vouyoukas (Intl. Energy Agency), 34 pp., 1992. A major
conclusion is that even moderate CO2 emission cuts would require very high
The Costs of Reducing CO2 Emissions: Evidence from GREEN (No. 115),
J.-M. Burniaux et al., 73 pp., 1992. Examines effects of international
agreements under which emission curbs are applied only by the OECD countries,
and the possibility that such unilateral action might lead to "carbon
leakages." Also examines multilateral and cost-effective agreements
and tradable permits.
GREEN: A Multi-Sector, Multi-Region Dynamic General Equilibrium Model
for Quantifying the Costs of Curbing CO2 Emissions: A Technical Manual (No.
116), J.-M. Burniaux et al., 113 pp., Apr. 1992. Provides a full technical
description of the GeneRal Equilibrium ENvironment model, its data base and
The Costs of Reducing CO2 Emissions: A Comparison of Carbon Tax Curves
with GREEN (No. 118), J. Oliveira-Martins et al., 1992. Examines
regional differences in carbon tax curves through the middle of the next
century, and evaluates the welfare and output costs entailed in reducing
Results for the OECD Comparative Modelling Project from the
Whalley-Wigle Model (No. 121), J. Whalley (Univ. Western Ontario), R. Wigle,
33 pp., 1992.
Global Effects of the European Carbon Tax, Dec. 1992. Simulation of
the proposed tax shows that it would exceed the targeted reduction in EC CO2
emissions, but would contribute little to world-wide reductions. Welfare losses
to developing countries would be small. (See Intl. Environ. Rptr., p.
820, Dec. 16, 1992.)
