- Carbon Scenarios - Blue Sky Thinking for a Green Future. Extracts relevant to Kyoto2.. Extracts from the report by Paul Domjan and Gulya Isyanova, published by the Stockholm Network on June 9 2008. The "Step Change" scenario investigated here draws on Kyoto2, and emerges as the most successful of the three scenarios considered.
- Carbon Scenarios: Blue Sky Thinking for a Green Future, by Paul Domjan and Gulya Isyanova of the Stockholm Network, describes "different possible futures that result from the differentiated substance and implementation of possible climate policies. We hope that our 3 scenarios - Kyoto Plus, Agree & Ignore, and Step Change - will be a simple yet powerful tool for discussing the complexity of climate change policy with a variety of stakeholders. These scenarios enable thinking about how far climate policies could take us, at what cost, how global energy markets would evolve in response and how effective these policies will be in addressing the challenges of climate change." The Step Change scenario draws on Kyoto2 and sets out a possible sequence of events whereby this approach could be adopted internationally. Published in June 2008.

- Jim Hansen's home page, with links to his many articles, both academic and popular. Jim Hansen has been a major source of inspiration for Kyoto2, and we have adopted his target to bring about a reduction of greenhouse gases from their present level to 350ppm CO2 eq by 2050.
- Adapting to climate change - What's needed in poor countries, and who should pay - Oxfam report of May 2007. "Oxfam estimates that the costs for developing countries of adapting to climate change will be well above the World Bank's widely cited estimate of $10-40bn annually. Based on new approaches to scaling up costs, we estimate the cost will be at least $50bn each year, and far higher if greenhouse-gas emissions are not cut rapidly."

- Real Time Initiative - this is a pape rof mine, submitted to an Ofgem consultation, about the benefits of moving to the real time pricing of electricity using smart meters. This would bring about responsive demand, rather than the responsive supply situation we have now. Advantages include: lower emissions of GHG and other pollutants, the ability to raise the proportion of intermittent renewables, a more stable grid / supply system, and lower overall electricity costs. Paper by Oliver Tickell dated 28 February 2006.
