Are the Goals of Sustainability Interconnected? A Sociological Analysis of the Three E’s of Sustainable Development Using Cross-Lagged Models with Reciprocal Effects

Over time, at the country level, increasing economic inequality reduces renewable energy consumption, with no evidence of reciprocal feedback.

Community water system privatization and the water access crisis

A discussion of the form that debates over privatization of water resources have taken, as well as how the act of privatization has been found to impact access to water systems and the quality of the service they provide.

Gender inequality, reproductive justice, and decoupling economic growth and emissions- a panel analysis of the moderating association of gender equality on the relationship between economic growth and CO2 emissions.

In nations with more gender equality, the association between GDP per capita and CO2 emissions is much lower than in nations with higher levels of gender inequality.

Is Urbanization Good for the Climate? A Cross-County Analysis of Impervious Surface, Affluence, and the Carbon Intensity of Well-Being

We explore how the relationship between the intensity of urban development and the environmental intensity of social activity hinges upon the composition of the various dimensions of urban change (e.g., the extent and concentration of the built environment, the size and density of resident populations, and the availability of social resources).

The asymmetry of economic growth and the carbon intensity of well-being

We explore the asymmetrical relationship between economic activity and CIWB for 153 nations from 1961–2013, as well as the theoretical implications of such a relationship.

Renewable energy injustice- The socio-environmental implications of renewable energy consumption

Renewable energy displaces more fossil fuel energy sources when inequality is increasing, while– conversely– fewer existing fossil fuel energy sources are displaced when inequality is decreasing. Efforts aimed at increasing renewable energy consumption should adopt policies that ensure the effective displacement of fossil fuels and reduce inequality.

Designing spatiotemporal multifunctional landscapes to support dynamic wildlife conservation

We use migratory birds as a working example to present a dynamic conservation opportunity and related challenges.

Time, Power and Environmental Impact- A Growth Curve Model of the Relationship Between Temporal Change and CO2 Emissions Per Capita.

In nations belonging to the core and semi-periphery, temporal advance is associated with increases in CO2 emissions per capita, rather than the decreases that might be expected

Can Reducing Income Inequality Decouple Economic Growth from CO2 Emissions?

Between 1985 and 2011 rising income inequality led to a tighter coupling between economic growth and CO2 emissions in developed nations.

Snakes in The Greenhouse- Does increased natural gas use reduce carbon dioxide emissions from coal consumption?

CO2 emissions from natural gas sources do not displace CO2 emissions from coal. These results cast doubt on whether the growing use of natural gas is likely to help substantially reduce CO2 emissions.
