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



Item #d93jun8

"Science and Society," D.E. Koshland, Jr. (Editor, Science), Science, 260(5105), 143, Apr. 9, 1993.

The ways in which science and society are governed are quite different and the difference causes friction when scientific progress is of social concern, as with climate change. Scientists must assist in producing and explaining preliminary findings on scientific problems, and politicians must understand that progress reports should not be used as final results not to be modified.

Item #d93jun9

"Policy Forum: Uncertainty, Resource Exploitation, and Conservation: Lessons from History," D. Ludwig (Dept. Zool., Univ. British Columbia, Vancouver BC V6T 1Z2, Can.), R. Hilborn, C. Walters, Science, 260(5104), 17, 36, Apr. 2, 1993.

Uses the failed concept of maximum sustainable yield of fisheries to illustrate the difficulty of establishing scientifically-based strategies for sustainably managing resources of all types. Gives several principles of effective management.

Item #d93jun10

"Adrift on a Sea of Platitudes: Why We Will Not Resolve the Greenhouse Issue," M. Waterstone (Dept. Geog., Univ. Arizona, Tucson AZ 85721), Environ. Mgmt., 17(2), 141-152, Mar.-Apr. 1993.

A review of policy options concludes that we will probably not deal with the greenhouse issue because we lack the philosophical, ethical and political will to do so.

Item #d93jun11

"Is the Greenhouse Effect the Foe?" C.B. Hatfield (Univ. Toledo, Toledo OH 43606), Geology, 21(1), 3, Jan. 1993.

Predicted limits to future fossil fuel availability suggest a problem more serious than the greenhouse effect in the next century. Maybe we desperately need global controls on fuel use, and maybe global warming has little to do with that need.
