Title:  Emissions, Inequality and Human Well-Being

Brown Bag Seminar Jorgenson

Abstract: In this talk I provide an overview of my ongoing collaborative research streams that focus on various interconnections between anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and industrial pollution, forms of social inequality, and human well-being. This theoretically-engaged research involves the combining of social and environmental datasets at various scales, from the facility level up to the national level, and the use of multiple research methods, including longitudinal regression analysis, multilevel regression analysis, and qualitative comparative analysis. Besides contributing to various areas of research within sociology, this work is also intended to help situate fundamental sociological principles, especially the importance of social-structural context, more centrally within sustainability science.
