- OF GENERAL INTEREST: EMISSIONS SCENARIOS AND
Scenarios for Carbon Dioxide Emissions," A.S. Manne, L.
Schrattenholzer (IIASA, A-2361 Laxenburg, Austria), Energy, 18(12),
1207-1222, Dec. 1993.
CHALLENGE (Common House Alternatives on Long-Term Energy
Strategies under Global Environmental Concern) is a network of
researchers working on national or regional scenarios of
greenhouse gas emissions. This paper describes the project's
activities as of the Fifth CHALLENGE Symposium (IIASA, Dec.
1992). (Copies of meeting papers are available from the second
from Ambio, 22(8), Dec. 1993:
"A UK Greenhouse Gas Inventory: On Estimating
Anthropogenic and Natural Sources and Sinks," W.N. Adger
(CSERGE, Univ. E. Anglia, Norwich NR4 7TJ, UK), K. Brown,
509-517. Presents estimates for the UK as an industrialized,
temperate country, with intensive land use and little natural
vegetation cover. Emphasizes the need to distinguish between
natural and anthropogenic sources in countries such as this,
where the capacity of the biosphere to act as a sink is limited
by human intervention. The relative contributions of different
gases are also affected by the time horizon examined, and hence
by the global warming potentials assumed.
"Inventory of Greenhouse Gas Emissions in The
Netherlands," R.J. Swart (Natl. Inst. Public Health &
Environ. Protect.--RIVM, POB 1, 3720 BA Bilthoven, Neth.), L.
Bouwman et al., 518-523. As a contribution to formulating a
national integrated policy on climate change, this study
emphasizes current sources of methane and nitrous oxide, as well
as the future effects of existing policies on emissions. A
general finding is that current policies not aimed at climate
change, such as those relating to management of organic waste and
livestock, replacement of natural gas distribution systems, and
decreasing the use of mineral fertilizer and animal manure, are
likely to stabilize the emissions of all non-CO2 greenhouse
