Farmers change slowly Avoid pain with clear signals Research; replace cows.
This paper explores how New Zealand should address agricultural greenhouse gas emissions: methane and nitrous oxide. The starting point is the internationally agreed-upon goal of limiting global warming to below two degrees, and...
Ruminating on Methane. Land use will change and Someone’s gotta pay.
I use simulations from the Land Use in Rural New Zealand model to consider mitigation for different classes of sheep-beef farms under climate policy. Farmers in...
As New Zealand joins with other countries to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, it will come under increasing pressure from changing economic opportunities, potentially disruptive new technologies, natural resource constraints, and evolving social and political drivers.
New Zealand households are emitting 4.6 per cent less greenhouse gas than they used to. This is a fall of approximately one tonne of emissions for a two person household that spends $80,000 per year. That’s the equivalent of the emissions involved in driving from...
Abstract: New Zealand’s per capita greenhouse gas emissions are usually calculated by taking total emissions as reported under the Kyoto Protocol or the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and simply dividing by population. However this focuses on emissions associated with production within New...
This working paper, which evolved under Motu’s ETS Dialogue process from 2016 to 2018, explores key considerations for ETS cap setting and proposes the design for a cap on units auctioned and freely allocated in the NZ ETS.
This working paper, which evolved under Motu’s ETS Dialogue process from 2016 to 2018, explores key considerations for emission price management in the context of a specific working model for unit supply in the NZ ETS.
