This paper investigates the association between the level of carbon emission (CO2), economic growth and scholarly education levels in the countries chosen according to some specific characteristics using multivariate time series approach. It considers the impact of GDP and education enrollment, as a proxy of human capital, on the level of CO2 for the countries classified according to their economic developments and regional distribution. The analyses are assessed in three different cases two of which consider the structural breaks for certain periods. The paper enables policy makers to consider the influence of education level and GDP in CO2 issues.

Recent evidence of the relationship between carbon dioxide emissions, energy use, GDP, and population in Ghana: A linear regression approach
Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Owusu, Phebe Asantewaa (2017-01-01)
In this study, the relationship between carbon dioxide emissions, energy use, GDP, and population was examined in Ghana from 1971-2013 using a linear regression approach. Evidence from the study shows a long-run equilibrium relationship running from energy use (EU), gross domestic product (GDP), and population to carbon dioxide emissions. There was evidence of long-run equilibrium relationship from GDP to carbon dioxide emissions and population to carbon dioxide emissions. There was a unidirectional causali...
Comparison of Productivity Plankton Types and Carbon Export Mechanisms in two Different Regimes of Subtropical North Atlantic a Modeling Study
Salihoğlu, Barış (2016-02-15)
Improved structure and mechanisms of carbon export and sequestration within marine ecosystem models is vital to better understand and predict changes in the global carbon cycle. We have implemented a 1D lower trophic ecosystem model at long-term time-series stations (BATS and ESTOC) in the North Atlantic for the years 1996-2000. We have investigated the dynamics of the productivity and carbon export, and mechanisms regulating them. Our simulations agree with the previous observations that show similar produ...
The impact of energy, agriculture, macroeconomic and human-induced indicators on environmental pollution: evidence from Ghana
Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Owusu, Phebe Asantewaa (2017-03-01)
In this study, the impact of energy, agriculture, macroeconomic and human-induced indicators on environmental pollution from 1971 to 2011 is investigated using the statistically inspired modification of partial least squares (SIMPLS) regression model. There was evidence of a linear relationship between energy, agriculture, macroeconomic and humaninduced indicators and carbon dioxide emissions. Evidence from the SIMPLS regression shows that a 1% increase in crop production index will reduce carbon dioxide em...
Energy use, carbon dioxide emissions, GDP, industrialization, financial development, and population, a causal nexus in Sri Lanka: With a subsequent prediction of energy use using neural network
Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Owusu, Phebe Asantewaa (2016-01-01)
The study examines the causal relationship between energy use, carbon dioxide emissions, GDP, industrialization, financial development, and population from 1971 to 2012 in Sri Lanka, using the ARDL regression analysis and a subsequent prediction of energy use using neural network. There was evidence of a long- run equilibrium relationship running from carbon dioxide emissions, GDP, industrialization, financial development, and population to energy use. The Granger causality test shows a unidirectional causa...
Energy consumption, economic growth, and carbon emissions: Challenges faced by an EU candidate member
Soytaş, Uğur; Sarı, Ramazan (2009-04-15)
This paper investigates the long run Granger causality relationship between economic growth, carbon dioxide emissions and energy consumption in Turkey, controlling for gross fixed capital formation and labor. The most interesting result is that carbon emissions seem to Granger cause energy consumption, but the reverse is not true. The lack of a long run causal link between income and emissions may be implying that to reduce carbon emissions, Turkey does not have to forgo economic growth.
