GLOBALIZATION AND THE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT: FOUR QUANTITATIVE SCENARIOS

A simulation of four quantitative scenarios using the general equilibrium model WorldScan is presented in this article. The scenarios study the effects of globalization on transportation and the environment. The focus of the study is on long term economic growth, trade and specialization patterns. It quantifies the economic content of the scenarios and the volume growth of energy and emissions between 1995 and 2050. The results indicate that emission growth quadruples with high economic growth without any energy efficient technologies and environmental legislation.
