Item #d94feb13

"Global Scenarios for Carbon Dioxide Emissions," A.S. Manne, L. Schrattenholzer (IIASA, A-2361 Laxenburg, Austria), Energy, 18(12), 1207-1222, Dec. 1993.

CHALLENGE (Common House Alternatives on Long-Term Energy Strategies under Global Environmental Concern) is a network of researchers working on national or regional scenarios of greenhouse gas emissions. This paper describes the project's activities as of the Fifth CHALLENGE Symposium (IIASA, Dec. 1992). (Copies of meeting papers are available from the second author.)

Item #d94feb14

Two items from Ambio, 22(8), Dec. 1993:

"A UK Greenhouse Gas Inventory: On Estimating Anthropogenic and Natural Sources and Sinks," W.N. Adger (CSERGE, Univ. E. Anglia, Norwich NR4 7TJ, UK), K. Brown, 509-517. Presents estimates for the UK as an industrialized, temperate country, with intensive land use and little natural vegetation cover. Emphasizes the need to distinguish between natural and anthropogenic sources in countries such as this, where the capacity of the biosphere to act as a sink is limited by human intervention. The relative contributions of different gases are also affected by the time horizon examined, and hence by the global warming potentials assumed.

"Inventory of Greenhouse Gas Emissions in The Netherlands," R.J. Swart (Natl. Inst. Public Health & Environ. Protect.--RIVM, POB 1, 3720 BA Bilthoven, Neth.), L. Bouwman et al., 518-523. As a contribution to formulating a national integrated policy on climate change, this study emphasizes current sources of methane and nitrous oxide, as well as the future effects of existing policies on emissions. A general finding is that current policies not aimed at climate change, such as those relating to management of organic waste and livestock, replacement of natural gas distribution systems, and decreasing the use of mineral fertilizer and animal manure, are likely to stabilize the emissions of all non-CO2 greenhouse gases.
