Empirical relationship between charcoal production and the social cost of carbon emissions
MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany
There have been increased attention on how man’s activities affect the environment negatively especially in developed countries. However, there are countless number of activities such as charcoal production and electricity generation from oil in developing countries that have potential carbon related social cost. In this study, the Arrellano Bond dynamic panel generalised method of moments is applied to estimate the relationship between social cost of carbon emissions and electricity generation from oil sources, GDP, charcoal consumption, energy resource depletion and population in oil producing African countries. The findings suggest the predictors have either positive or negative effect on the social cost of carbon emissions. The study recommends in order combat global warming, there should be efficient and modernised charcoal production and electricity production from non-fossil sources.
