Item #d97sep36

Canada's Second National Report on Climate Change, 142 pp., July 1997, no charge. Obtain from the Environ. Can. Inquiry Ctr. (tel: 800 668 6767), or on the Web at

Updates Canada's situation and responses to climate change. Current government and industry actions are insufficient to meet Canada's goal of stabilizing emissions at the 1990 levels by the year 2000. Greenhouse gas emissions are projected to rise 36% over 1990 levels by 2020 under current and projected policies. If climate change occurs to the extent predicted by current models, there will be significant risk to Canada's environment and economy.

Item #d97sep37

Climate Change: The U.K. Program, Feb. 1997, Ј10/$16.50 (HMSO).

This second national report declares that Britain is set to cut its emissions of CO2 by up to eight percent by the year 2000 compared to 1990 levels, exceeding the current goal of the climate convention. However, CO2 emissions are expected to rise by 2010. Emissions of methane are expected to be 22% lower, and nitrous oxide 62% lower. Reasons for the decline in emissions by 2000 include a switch from coal and oil to gas, and increased road fuel taxes.
