The premier science journal, Nature Climate Change, featured a recently published article by Bill Shobe, Director of the Center for Economic and Policy Studies.
Price-responsive supply can enhance the performance of real-world regulatory environments through an automatic adjustment mechanism that responds instantaneously to new information about abatement costs.
Price floors are a common form of policy intervention to bolster prices. In introductory economics textbooks, minimum wages
in labor markets and price supports in grain markets are often the most common examples. In either case, it is argued, (1) a floor

The Role of Direct Air Capture and Negative Emissions Technologies in the Shared Socioeconomic Pathway
We use the Global Change Analysis Model (GCAM) to understand the role of DACCS across all 5 SSPs for the below 2˚C and below 1.5˚C end-of-century warming goals. We assess DACCS deployment relative to other carbon capture methods, and its side effects for global energy, water, land systems.
Scenarios for meeting ambitious climate targets rely on large-scale deployment of negative emissions technologies (NETs), including direct air capture (DAC). However, the tradeoffs between food, water and energy created by deploying different NETs are unclear.
