Abstract for: Can We Reverse the Atmospheric CO2 Concentration Trend Using Cooperation? Model-based Management for Effective Cooperation
The reversibility of the Effects of Green House Gases is a hot topic among scholars nowadays. We tested if cooperation is efficient to overturn the current CO2 Concentration Trend in the atmosphere – this, we approach as a large-scale social dilemma. We developed a System Dynamics model to find the conditions required to achieve effective cooperation that may contribute to reverse the current CO2 concentration trend. Simulation experiments show that initial conditions of trust and information delays are determinant to attain cooperation in the direction of reducing the CO2 concentration trend.
