Economy-Global Land System Interactions
GHG and Other Pollutants
from energy and agriculture/land use
Land use shares for crops,
livestock, bioenergy, forestry
CH4, N2O, Net CO2
from land use
Spatial data (0.5º x 0.5º) for
CO2, Tropospheric Ozone,
MIT EPPA, 16 Region, multi
Sector CGE model
Climate, CO2Concentrations, and Changes in Land Carbon Storage
Regionalpatterns of change in land carbon
Much loss, especially Africa, Asia
Big Effects on FoodPricesWhen Land Carbon priced
No-policy and energy only about the same.
Less environmental damage w/ energy policy, but higher energy and GHG control costs offset benefit to crops.
Energy+Land has big price impacts. w/o biofuels some pressure off.
Solid: no-policy Short Dash: Energy-Only
Dots: No biofuels Long Dash:Energy+ Land
