Global temperatures and greenhouse gases: a common features approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


We propose a common features approach for testing for common trends and estimating long-run relationships between variables with complex trends. Using this approach, we establish that global temperatures and the concentration of greenhouse gases share a common trend and we estimate their long-run relationship without conditioning on the exact nature of this trend.
