    CO2 emissions and GDP move together over the business cycle.

The paper provides a rigorous empirical analysis of this relationship in a comprehensive cross-country panel by decomposing the emissions and GDP series into their growth and cyclical components using the HP filter. read more »

    Book Review: The New North: Our World in 2050 by Laurence C. Smith
