Master Thesis: Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning for Dynamic Climate Policy Games

View the full thesis here. Abstract Despite concerted efforts by researchers and policymakers, governments are failing to implement the global coordination needed to implement policies that could avert the disaster of unmitigated climate change. Existing economic models are often ill-equipped to capture the complexities of dynamic, strategic interactions among multiple agents. The research on international mechanisms such as climate clubs, for instance, is often limited to one-shot games due to the combinatorial explosion of sequential negotiation steps....

Lab Grown Meat Is Not a Climate Solution

Few topics spark as much controversy in the climate debate as the assertion that we need to cut our meat consumption if we want to reach our climate targets. On some primal level going for the burger on your plate is a much more outrageous act than going for your car. So it’s no surprise that technical-minded people have been looking for a panacea in the form of lab-grown meat. And the pitch is alluring: If the plan works out the burger is safe and we get to reduce our emissions....

While our problems pale in comparison to those of the brave health care workers fighting at the frontlines we bear an inescapable sense of dread and helplessness by having to watch the infection spread....
