Degrowth Vienna 2020 - Framing strategies for sustainability policy in the Corona crisis

By: Valentin Sagvosdkin

Presentation [part of the standard session "Mobilität, Transformationsdesign und imperiale Lebensweise"] Whether the Corona crisis will promote or slow down the socio-ecological transformation is open – and thus shapeable.

The limits of transport decarbonization under the current growth paradigm

By: Carmen Duce, Ignacio de Blas, Iñigo Capellán-Pérez, Margarita Mediavilla

Achieving ambitious reductions in greenhouse gases (GHG) is particularly challenging for transportation due to the technical limitations of replacing oil-based fuels. We apply the integrated assessment model MEDEAS-World to study four global transportation decarbonization strategies for 2050. The results show that a massive replacement of oil-fueled individual vehicles to electric ones alone ...

Quantifying the potential for climate change mitigation of consumption options

By: Biljana Macura, Diana Ivanova, Dominik Wiedenhofer, Felix Creutzig, John Barrett, Max W. Callaghan

Around two-thirds of global GHG emissions are directly and indirectly linked to household consumption, with a global average of about 6 tCO2eq/cap. Changes in consumption patterns to low-carbon alternatives therefore present a great and urgently required potential for emission reductions. In this paper, we synthesize emission mitigation potentials across the consumption domains of food, hou...

Was der Wahlkampf verschweigt: Die Autoindustrie und der Weg ins Klimachaos

By: Fabian Scheidler, Winfried Wolf

Your browser does not support the video tag. Einleitung: Trotz Rekordfluten wie jüngst in Houston und extremer Dürre in vielen Teilen der Welt, von Italien bis Somalia, ist der Klimawandel im Bundestagswahlkampf kein Thema. In Deutschland steigen die Treibhausgasmissionen seit 2015 wieder, statt zu sinken, vor allem durch den boomenden Auto-, LKW- und Flugverkehr. Doch selbst bei den Debatt...

Spatial mobility and degrowth strategies: A note on the role of shared transportation modes

This paper investigates the mechanisms through which shared modes lead to degrowth strategies and help reduce major spatial and environmental issues related to mobility in urban areas, namely road congestion, rivalry of use for parking spaces and air pollution, as well as the number of goods in the economy. In this article, I use gross space consumption estimations for different transportation ...

Kritiker sahen in der Bahnreform allerdings bereits damals die Verschleierung der Bahnprivatisierung. Und sie sagten Verhältnisse voraus, wie es sie z.B. im Sommer 2013 in Mainz und Umgebung gab. Inzwischen hat sich Ernüchteru...
