Global Climate Change DigestArchives of the
Global Climate Change Digest

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




Item #d94feb15

Over the next three years, the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy will publish a series of articles aimed at a wide variety of readers discussing the factors that shape our evolving energy system. They will be written by D.S. Scott (Director, Inst. Integrated Energy Systems, Univ. Victoria, Victoria BC V8W 2Y2, Can.) in a style to be understood and enjoyed by thoughtful non-specialists.

The first installment, "Smelling Land" (19(1), 3-5, Jan. 1994), argues how oxygen can be considered the true fossil fuel of planet Earth, and discusses the implications of this realization for understanding energy sources.

Item #d94feb16

"Fossil Fuel Consumption and Atmospheric CO2," D.L. Klass (Biomass Energy Res. Assoc., Washington, D.C.), Energy Policy, 21(11), 1076-1078, Nov. 1993.

Argues that fossil fuel consumption is not the primary source of global CO2 increase, rather it is the reduction in the size of the biomass reservoir and other anthropogenic and non-anthropogenic factors. CO2 can best be reduced by growing more terrestrial and marine biomass.

Item #d94feb17

"Having the Last Gas," N.P. Freestone (Nene Coll. Higher Educ., St. George's Ave., Northampton NN2 6JD, UK), P.S. Phillips, R. Hall, Chem. in Britain, 48-50, Jan. 1994.

Survey article describing how landfill gas is making a serious challenge as a potentially important commodity, and summarizing technical considerations and economics with examples from the U.K.

Item #d94feb18

"Global Warming Impacts of Transport," L. Michaelis (Harwell Lab., Oxfordshire OX11 0RA, UK), Science of the Total Environ., 134, 117-124, June 25, 1993.

One of about 35 papers in a special issue on "Transport and Air Pollution," based on a symposium in Avignon, France (Sep. 1991). Summarizes results of atmospheric chemistry modeling at Harwell Laboratory on the warming impacts of NOx, non-methane hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and water vapor from cars and aircraft. Aircraft could become an important source of greenhouse gases.
