    Abstract: 氣候變遷儼然在各學術領域,成為前所未見的重要議題。許多與政體及環境惡化的相關研究,已著重在民主政體及非民主政體的比較上,並且得出民主政體有利於環境改善,因此民主化有利於環保相關議題。然而,隨著環境變遷,這些觀點也可能不再適用。此篇論文之主旨,
    試圖重新分析此項議題,並著重於極權政體對於其境內二氧化碳排放的影響。作者不僅提出論點,證實極權政體之相關影響,同時也提出黨政體制對於自1997至2010年間,降低二氧化碳排放量的顯著影響。為提出堅實佐證,作者參考了相關文獻,並製出兩項量化研究結果: 時間序列及跨部門分析,並且使用地理信息席統做空間分析。統計數據顯至多證實:極權政體確實在二氧化碳排放量方面,起了一定的作用,相反地,並非黨政體系,而是軍政體系,於這方面具有最大影響力。不過,經由穩健性測試後,也發現了時間維度及樣本數不足,也導致了統計結果稍微偏差;在第二輪的測試後,也發現了影響二氧化碳排放量的最關鍵因素,還是人均國內生產總值,而非政體類型。
    Climate change has become an ever-increasingly important topic in a multitude of academic fields. A lot of the research on regime type and environmental degradation has focused on democracies versus non-democracies, and concluded that because democracies outperform in this sector, then democratization could be the solution. However, viewpoints seem to be shifting in terms of whether this research is as accurate in the current environment. This paper attempts to reanalyze this topic with a specific focus on whether certain authoritarian regime types, if any, have an effect on carbon dioxide levels within a regime. I argue that not only will authoritarian regime types have an effect, but that party regimes will have the greatest effect in limiting or decreasing carbon dioxide emissions from 1997-2010. To provide empirical support, I include a vast literature review on the topic and utilize two different quantitative methods of analysis: time-series cross-sectional and spatial analysis using Geographic Information Systems. Statistical results mostly confirm that authoritarian regime type can play a role in determining carbon dioxide emission levels, but on the contrary, it is military regimes and not party regimes that have the greatest effect on CO2 levels. However, after robustness checks, it seems to be that limitations skew the results due to a short time-frame and small sample size. This results in the secondary analysis concluding that, while positive, regime type is not significant in determining carbon dioxide emissions, but rather that GDP per capita has a greater effect.
