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...
The causal nexus between energy use, carbon dioxide emissions, and macroeconomic variables in Ghana
Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Owusu, Phebe Asantewaa (2017-01-01)
The study examined the causal nexus between energy use, carbon dioxide emissions, and macroeconomic variables in Ghana with data spanning from 1960 to 2013 using the vector error correction model (VECM). It is evidential from the study that almost 12% of future fluctuations in energy use are due to shocks in financial development and 10% of future fluctuations in carbon dioxide emissions are due to shocks in energy use. There was evidence of a bidirectional causality between: energy use and financial develo...
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...
EXPLORING THE WAYS FOR INTEGRATING THE GREEN BOND WITH DECOUPLING PROJECTS THROUGH MONITORING AND EVALUATION: THE CARBON EMISSION ATLAS AND EXPERT SYSTEM (KAUS)
Çavuşoğlu, Şevval; Ataöv Demirkan, Anlı; Department of City and Regional Planning (2022-4-28)
More research in recent years has highlighted that the climate crisis is a consequence of the immense release of carbon emissions due to human activities. The negative side of the climate crisis is that it has led to severe environmental problems around the globe, which has negatively affected urban settings. Environmental-sensitive planning approaches can help reduce carbon emissions. One effective way to do that is reducing the energy use in cities and gaining the human behavior to become carbon-neu...
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...
