Appalling[edit]

This article is appallingly bad William M. Connolley (talk) 10:26, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Not least because it is doing a poor job of distinguishing Pol and Econ. This is the Econ article; Politics of global warming is the Pol one William M. Connolley (talk) 11:08, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Dr. Lange's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Lange has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


"If there are no mechanisms allowing compensation to be paid, then it is necessary to assign weights to particular individuals"

I would suggest: "If there are no mechanisms allowing compensation to be paid, then it is possible to remedy this by assigning weights to particular individual's loss or gain and re-calculate net present value"


"Policies National Both climate and non-climate policies can affect emissions growth. Non-climate policies that can affect emissions are listed below (Bashmakov et al., 2001:409-410):[107]

Market-orientated reforms can have important impacts on energy use, energy efficiency, and therefore GHG emissions. Price and subsidy policies: Many countries provide subsidies for activities that impact emissions, e.g., subsidies in the agriculture and energy sectors, and indirect subsidies for transport. Market liberalization: Restructuring of energy markets has occurred in several countries and regions. These policies have mainly been designed to increase competition in the market, but they can have a significant impact on emissions."

This sub-section is heavily referenced to an article from 2001 that seems to be concerned about market-based reforms to regulation that had been centered around the state. My concern is that it ignores that any reforms to human systems will impact energy use and efficiency, regardless of whether they are market-based or not. Both market and non-market reforms can increase or decrease energy use and efficiency. For example, many studies (such as Fischer-Vanden et al, Resource and Energy Economics 26(1), 2004) have found the the move to market-based systems in the Chinese economy was a factor in the decline in energy intensity per GDP during the late 1990s and early 2000. In short, this part seems biased against market reforms because of the manner in which the word "market" is used.


We hope Wikipedians on this talk page can take advantage of these comments and improve the quality of the article accordingly.

Dr. Peterson's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Peterson has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


Ok, but partly outdated (e.g. section on global future Scenarios,Emission projections, regions, national policy, major reports (e.g. not the latest IPCC Reports)


We hope Wikipedians on this talk page can take advantage of these comments and improve the quality of the article accordingly.

We believe Dr. Peterson has expertise on the topic of this article, since he has published relevant scholarly research:

Dr. Bosetti's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Bosetti has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


1) When talking about scenarios no references to shared socio economic scenarios, SSPs which are the asis of this science today. SRES are long gone.

2) The distinction between emission scenarios and global future scenarios is unclear and, possibly, inappropriate 3) The latest key references for emissions is the WGIII 5th AR of the IPCC. Sres are in the past. The figure on projected total CO2 is from 2000! 4) temperature and concentration also refer way too old science. 5) This is a wiki entry that is unorganize and the reader gets lost before understanding what is the point.
