Global Climate Change Digest

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



Item #d97sep43

Annual Energy Outlook 1997, U.S. Energy Info. Admin., Jan. 1997, no charge (EIA). Full text available at

Presents forecasts of U.S. energy supply, demand, and prices through 2015. A section on carbon emissions concludes that slower rise in per capita emissions will fail to offset population growth, leading to a continued rise in emissions; coal is the main source of carbon emissions from electricity production.

Item #d97sep44

Digest of Environmental Statistics No. 19, 1997, U.K. Dept. Environ., Transport & Regions, July 1997, Ј30/$50 (HMSO).

Brings together core statistics on a large range of environmental issues from climate change to land use, focusing on geographical variation and on performance in relation to national targets. U.K. emissions of CO2 and methane fell 7% and 15% respectively between 1990 and 1995.

Item #d97sep45

Trends in Canada's Greenhouse Gas Emissions (1990-1995), June 1997 (Environ. Canada).

Emissions increased 9.2% over the period; 1995 emissions were about 2% of the global total. Emissions of CO2 grew slower (7.8%) than those of the other two major greenhouse gases, methane (16%) and nitrous oxide (22%).

Item #d97sep46

Canada's Energy Outlook 1996-2020, 1997 (Natural Resources Canada). Full text available at

Projects that greenhouse gas emissions will be 8.2% higher than 1990 levels by 2000, 19% higher in 2010, and 36% higher in 2020. Energy efficiency and voluntary programs are expected to pay a large role in moderating the increase.

Item #d97sep47

Environmental Performance Reviews--Korea, 196 pp., 1997, $35 (OECD).

Korea is now taking vigorous action to solve environmental problems that were neglected earlier in its economic development. Yet CO2 emissions closely follow GDP growth, and in 2000 will be 80% higher than in 1990. Korea has not yet developed a climate change policy that can adequately respond to its fast-growing emissions.

Item #d97sep48

New Zealand: Energy Greenhouse Gas Emissions, 1990-95, 1996, US$31/NZ$45 (N.Z. Ministry of Commerce).

Covers emissions from domestic transport, industry, electricity generation, petroleum refining, and the commercial, residential and agricultural sectors. New Zealand's gross CO2 emissions will exceed 1990 levels by 22-25% by the year 2000, and net emissions are unlikely to stabilize at 1990 levels. New Zealand has expected forests, acting as a CO2 sink, to meet 80% of its CO2 emissions reductions. However, projections have been revised since 1994 because forest absorption modeling techniques have been refined and planting projections amended downwards.
