Item #d95may33

"Twelve Common Myths of Allowance Trading: Improving the Level of Discussion," K. Rose (Elec. & Gas. Res. Div., Natl. Regulatory Res. Inst.), The Electricity J., 8(4), 64-69, May 1995.

An economist discusses misconceptions he has encountered concerning the U.S. Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, which established trading of SO2 emission allowances for acid rain control. Some may have relevance to similar schemes proposed for CO2 control. One misconception is that CO2 controls would make the price of SO2 emission allowances drop to zero, but this would only occur in the very unlikely case that the use of coal was banned outright.

Item #d95may34

"Atmospheric Carbon Sequestration Through Agroforestry in China," X. Wang (Res. Ctr. for Eco-Environ. Sci., POB 2871, Beijing 100085, China), Energy, 20(2), 117-121, Feb. 1995.

During a study on biomass and productivity of agroforestry in the North China Plain, found that agroforestry has a greater potential for storing and absorbing carbon from the atmosphere than does land cultivation.

Item #d95may36

Two papers from The Energy J., 15(4), Oct. 1994:

"Cost-Effective Climate Policy in a Small Country," C. Hagem (Ctr. for Climate & Energy Res., POB 1129 Blindern, 0317 Oslo, Norway), 119 ff. The cost of reducing CO2 emissions in Norway through a reduction in fossil fuel consumption is estimated in a 1992 report from the Environmental Tax Committee. This paper compares that result with the estimated cost of reducing fossil fuel production, finding that it could be less costly to reduce production than consumption.

"Incomplete International Climate Agreements: Optimal Carbon Taxes, Market Failures and Welfare Effects," R. Golombek (Foundation for Res. in Econ. & Business Admin. (SNF), Gaustadalleen 21, N-0371 Oslo, Norway), 141 ff. Uses a numerical energy model to study optimal carbon taxes and welfare effects for a group of countries participating in an international agreement to limit CO2 emissions. Scenarios differ with respect to the types of CO2 taxes, and which countries participate in the agreement. Also discusses impacts on regional net income.

Item #d95may37

"Industrial Energy Efficiency and Global Warming," A.J. Streb (U.S. Dept. Energy), 6(2), 234-247, June 1994.

Describes the role of industry as a source of greenhouse gases, the potential effect of these gases on global warming, and the growth rate of industrial emissions and atmospheric CO2 concentrations under alternative energy efficiency scenarios. Outlines related initiatives of the U.S. Climate Action Plan.

Item #d95may38

Special issue: "Global Warming," A. Rose, Ed. (Dept. Mineral Econ., 221 E.A. Walker Bldg., Pennsylvania State Univ., Univ. Pk. PA 16802), Resour. & Energy Econ., 15(1), Mar. 1993.

Contributors of these papers, resulting from a session on long-range externalities at the 1992 AAAS meeting, include researchers from academia, private research institutions, consulting firms and government agencies. The papers emphasize the important themes of the journal: theoretical and conceptual breakthroughs, advances in operational models, and important policy insights.
