Global Climate Change Digest

A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d93apr1

Three comments, and a reply by W.D. Nordhaus, on his article "An Optimal Transition Path for Controlling Greenhouse Gases," by S.H. Schneider; H. Dowlatabadi and L.B. Lave; and M. Oppenheimer; Science, 259(5100), 1381-1384, Mar. 5, 1993.

Item #d93apr2

"Does Recent Global Warming Suggest an Enhanced Greenhouse Effect?" H.S. Kheshgi (Exxon Res. & Eng. Co., Annandale NJ 08801), B.S. White, Clim. Change, 23(2), 121-139, Feb. 1993.

Estimates climate sensitivity to increased greenhouse gases by assuming models for greenhouse forcing, climate response to forcing, and climate variability. The estimates of climate sensitivity are remarkably insensitive to assumptions, but their statistical significance is sensitive to assumptions about climate variability. Assuming a variability with a time scale of a century, consistent with temperature records, the estimate of sensitivity encompasses both zero and typical values obtained by GCMs, and implies it will be several decades before confident estimates can be made.

Item #d93apr3

"The Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS): A Mechanism for Coordinated Representation of Small Island States on Issues of Common Concern," L.I. Heileman (Inst. Marine Affairs, Hilltop Lane, Chaguaramas, Trinidad & Tobago, W. Indies), Ambio, 22(1), 55-56, Feb. 1993.

Discusses the position of small island states on the Framework Convention on Climate Change, and the success to date of AOSIS in representing their concerns.

Item #d93apr4

Commentary: "Greenhouse Warming," D.J. Evans (Chair, Panel on Policy Implications of Greenhouse Warming, Natl. Acad. Sci.), R. Coppock, Environment, 35(1), 2-3, Jan.-Feb. 1993.

Objects to the conclusion of W. Bach, in his review of the National Academy of Sciences report Policy Implications of Greenhouse Warming, that the report finds preventive measures unjustified because of the capacity for U.S. industry and agriculture to adapt to warming.

Item #d93apr5

"World Energy Prices, Geopolitics and Global Warming," J.A. Laurmann (Marine Sci. Inst., U.C. Santa Barbara, 3372 Martin Rd., Carmel CA 93923), J. Hydrogen Energy, 17(7), 553-554, 1992. Comment on the importance of focusing research on the likelihood of costly, early, nonlinear threshold effects of climate change on ecosystems and human systems.

Item #d93apr6

"Technology Transfer Funds and the Law: Recent Amendments to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer," P. Lawrence, J. Environ. Law, 4(1), 15-27, 1992.
