Climate change, tourist air travel and radical emissions reduction

James Higham, Scott A. Cohen, Christina T. Cavaliere, Arianne Reis, Wiebke Finkler
2016 Journal of Cleaner Production  
From a policy perspective, current and projected growth in aviation is fundamentally incompatible with radical emissions reduction and decarbonisation of the global energy system.  ...  Its theoretical context harnesses lessons from public health to inform a discussion of bottom up (social marketing, nudge) and top down (government regulation) approaches to the urgent challenge of radical  ...  ) , helping to lower the city's CO2 emissions.  ...

Sustainably unpersuaded

Hronn Brynjarsdottir, Maria Håkansson, James Pierce, Eric Baumer, Carl DiSalvo, Phoebe Sengers
2012 Proceedings of the 2012 ACM annual conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '12  
In this paper we provide a critical analysis of persuasive sustainability research from 2009-2011.  ...  Drawing on critical sociological theory of modernism, we argue that persuasion is based on a limited framing of sustainability, human behavior, and their interrelationship.  ...  Thanks to Eric Paulos, Geri Gay, Tad Hirsch, and Steve Jackson for their support and suggestions, and to the anonymous reviewers for helpful criticisms.  ...

Multiple Benefits through Smart Home Energy Management Solutions—A Simulation-Based Case Study of a Single-Family-House in Algeria and Germany

Ringel, Laidi, Djenouri
2019 Energies  
We apply simple-to-use, easily, scalable impact indicators that can be made available to homeowners and serve as intrinsic economic, environmental and social motivators for pursuing energy efficiency.  ...  By simulating lighting, heating and cooling operations in a model single-family home equipped with modest automation, we show that individual actors can be led to pursue energy efficiency out of enlightened  ...  The model household in our case could receive certification that by applying extended smart home solutions, it had contributed individually to saving CO2 emissions by some 7.3 t CO2eq.  ...
