Climate Risk and the Fossil Fuel Industry: Two Feet High and Rising
Burning coal, oil and natural gas is responsible for two-thirds of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Yet these same fuels are also the economic mainstay of resource-rich countries and the world’s largest firms, meaning that climate change relief actions represent danger for the fossil fuel business. In this working paper, energy fellow Jim Krane examines the risks the fossil fuel industry faces as a result of climate mitigation strategies.

Carbon and oxygen isotopes of bulk carbonate in sediment deposited beneath the eastern equatorial Pacific over the last 8 million years Reghellin, Daniele; Coxall, Helen K.; Dickens, Gerald R.; Backman, Jan (2015)To improve the understanding and utility of bulk carbonate stable carbon and oxygen isotope measurements, we examine sediment from cores in the eastern equatorial Pacific that span the last 8 Ma. We measured δ13C and δ18O in 791 samples from Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Site U1338 and Deep Sea Drilling Project Site 573, both located close to the ...
Assessing offsets between the δ13C of sedimentary components and the global exogenic carbon pool across early Paleogene carbon cycle perturbations Sluijs, Appy; Dickens, Gerald R. (2012) Negative stable carbon isotope excursions (CIEs) across the Paleocene–Eocene thermal maximum (PETM; ~56 Ma) range between 2‰ and 7‰, even after discounting sections with truncated records. Individual carbon isotope records differ in shape and magnitude from variations in the global exogenic carbon cycle through changes in (1) the relative abundance ...
Herbivore-induced changes in plant carbon allocation: Assessment of below-ground C fluxes using carbon-14 Crossley, D.A. Jr; Cheng, Weixin; Holland, J. Nathaniel (1996-03)Effects of above-ground herbivory on shortterm plant carbon allocation were studied using maize (Zea mays) and a generalist lubber grasshopper (Romalea guttata). We hypothesized that above-ground herbivory stimulates current net carbon assimilate allocation to below-ground components, such as roots, root exudation and root and soil respiration. ...
