GLIMPSE is a tool to find US policy scenarios that simultaneously improve air quality human health, reduce impacts to ecosystems, and mitigate climate change. It is designed to be fast -- to allow decision-makers to explore a range of options, as well as comprehensive -- to avoid unintended consequences.
GLIMPSE couples an energy system model, to understand the impact of policy actions on emissions, and an atmospheric chemistry-transport model, to understand the impact of emissions on short-lived climate forcers, greenhouse gases, and human health costs of air pollutants. We have developed a range of US energy system scenarios and quantified their human health and climate change impacts. Here it is possible to download these data and explore these scenarios.
