  1. 1. The effect of environmental policies on CO2 emissions - using the environmental policy stringency index

    Kandidat-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Författare :Elin Alexandersson; [2020-09-15]
    Nyckelord :Environmental policy stringency index; CO₂ emissions; panel data; fixed effects;

    Sammanfattning : The carbon concentration in the air has increased by 50 percent since pre-industrial times and continues to increase every year. Climate change is, therefore, a significant challenge today. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Grön infrastruktur i förebyggande syfte mot värmeöar. En studie av Kalmar och Kungsbacka kommuns klimatanpassningsarbete

    Kandidat-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för ekonomi och samhälle

    Författare :Zein Anani; Linn Ott Olander; [2020-08-31]
    Nyckelord :Grön infrastruktur; grönstrukturekosystemtjänster; värmeöeffekten; temperaturökning; fysisk planering; klimatanpassning;

    Sammanfattning : The ongoing global climate change with its rising trends in global temperature, can be linked to the increasing frequency, intensity, duration, and extent of extreme weather fluctuation. Urban heat waves, in combination with urbanization processes which replace natural landscapes with impervious surfaces, are causing the development and manifestation of urban heat islands (UHI) in cities.

  3. 3. VIKTEN AV ATT UPPLEVA - Hur lokal upplevelse av torka påverkar vattenkonsumtionsbeteenden

    Kandidat-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för ekonomi och samhälle

    Författare :Malin Gillman; [2020-08-29]
    Nyckelord :”Construal level theory”; ”CLT”; ”Torka”; “Vattenkonsumtion”; “Upplevd torka”; ”Upplevt avstånd”; ”Psykologiskt avstånd”;

    Sammanfattning : ”Construal level theory”, CLT, is a multidisciplinary theory that builds upon the reasoning that perceived distance to events influence the level of abstraction one feels about the events. This, in turn, has the ability to affect people’s behaviour. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Gender dynamics in media-driven belief polarization - disentangling reinforcing processes behind media usage and perception of societal issues

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för journalistik, medier och kommunikation

    Författare :Lisa Axelsson; [2020-08-19]
    Nyckelord :Reinforcing spirals; selective exposure; media effects; alternative media; gender gap; interpersonal communication; belief polarization;

    Sammanfattning : In academia as well as in mainstream media, people are voicing concern that a fragmented media environment, entailing an immense increase of alternative media, may motivate selective exposure, in turn leading to increasingly polarized perceptions of society among the public. Consulting the theory of reinforcing spirals (RSM), there is ample evidence for a reciprocal relationship between selective media exposure and sociotropic beliefs – potentially sparking polarization dynamics.

  5. 5. EUROPAS KLIMAT - Vad har reducerat koldioxidutsläppen?

    Kandidat-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Författare :Miguel Madureira Palm; [2020-08-18]
    Nyckelord :Klimatförändringar; dekomponering; Kaya-identiteten; energiintensitet; koldioxidfaktor; Europa; Climate change; decomposition; Kaya-identity; energy intensity; carbon factor; Europe;

    Sammanfattning : Scientists, politicians and media are increasingly discussing the topic of climate change. Measures such as the Paris Agreement have been taken to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, specially CO2-emissions, in order to prevent the devastating effects of climate change. LÄS MER
