Global Climate Change Digest

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



Item #d94jun49

Special issue: "Energy Use in Asian Cities," S. Tyler (Intl. Develop. Res. Ctr., Tanglin POB 101, Singapore 9124), J. Sathaye, N. Goldman, Eds., Energy, 19(5), May 1994 (Pergamon Press).

Comprises nine papers from the Urban Household Energy and Air Pollution Network project, sponsored by the International Development Research Centre, Ottawa. The project relates differences in household characteristics to observed patterns of household fuel use. It is the first comparative household- and air-quality survey developed for and undertaken by independent research teams in several countries at the same time.

Item #d94jun50

Two items from Energy Policy, 22(2), Feb. 1994:

"The Effect of Vehicle Speeds on Emissions," M. Ferguson (Earth Resour. Res. [ERR], London, UK), 103-106. Used the ERR Transport Emissions Model to show that 3.1% of CO2 emissions could be saved in the U.K. if current speed limits were enforced, or 7% if a maximum limit of 50 mph were imposed.

"Sustainable Use of Energy: A Normative Energy Scenario, 1990-2050," J. van Ettinger (Van Ettinger & Assoc., Zwanenkade 88, 2925 AS Krimpen a/d Ijssel, Neth.), 111-118. Discusses the future of sustainability if the four main measures to reduce CO2 emissions from energy use are applied: energy efficiency; switching to natural gas; CO2 recovery; and development of alternative energy sources. A 50% global CO2 reduction could be reached by applying the four measures with different emphasis in industrialized and developing countries.

Item #d94jun51

Two items in ibid., 21(12), Dec. 1993:

"Mind the Gap: The Vicious Circle of Measuring Automobile Fuel Use," L. Schipper (Intl. Energy Studies, Lawrence Berkeley Lab., Univ. Calif., 1 Cyclotron Rd., 90-4000, Berkeley CA 94720), M.J. Figueroa et al., 1173-1190. Major gaps exist between estimates of road gasoline and actual sales data for gasoline, diesel and other fuels. Presents calculations for total automobile fuel use for a variety of OECD countries.

"US Demilitarization and Global Warming: An Empirical Investigation of the Environmental Peace Dividend," A.G. Heyes (Dept. Econ., Birkbeck Coll., Univ. London, 13-15 Gresse St., London W1P 1PA, UK), C. Liston-Heyes, 1217-1224, Dec. 1993. Uses input-output estimates of the direct and indirect "energy intensities" of different categories of government and non-government expenditures under demilitarization. The possible effects range from adverse to beneficial, depending sensitively on the manner in which the funds saved are distributed.


Item #d94jun52

"Changing Energy Intensity in Chinese Industry: The Relative Importance of Structural Shift and Intensity Change," J.E. Sinton (Energy Analysis Prog., Lawrence Berkeley Lab., Univ. Calif., Berkeley CA 94720), M.D. Levine, ibid., 22(3), 239-256, Mar. 1994.

Item #d94jun53

"Quantifying the Credibility of Energy Projections from Trends in Past Data: The US Energy Sector," A.I. Shlyakhter, D.M. Kammen (Woodrow Wilson Sch., 444 Robertson Hall, Princeton Univ., Princeton NJ 08544) et al., ibid., 22(2), Feb. 1994.

Item #d94jun54

Two items from ibid., 21(12), Dec. 1993:

"Modelling the Transport Sector Fuel Demand for Developing Economies," F. Birol (Res. Div., OPEC, Obere Donaustr. 93, 1020 Vienna, Austria), N. Guerer, 1163-1172.

"Energy and Environment: Nordic Energy Scenarios for 2010 and 2030," O. Benestad (Ctr. Develop. & Environ., Univ. Oslo, POB 1116 Blindern, N-0317 Oslo, Nor.), L. Brinck et al., 1225-1236. Analyzes the prospect of an energy system which would prevent the critical loads of NOx and SO2 and the present concentration of CO2 from being exceeded.
