At the World Energy Conference meeting in Montreal in September 1989, the papers and discussion among 3,000 attendees from 91 nations were dominated by global warming and other environmental effects of energy production, rather than by concern over world fuel supplies.

"Ministers Plan for Internal Energy Market by 1992," H. Gavaghan, New Scientist, p. 25, Sep. 30, 1989. Discusses an interim report released at the conference by the energy directorate of the European Commission, which says many European Community objectives including developing renewable sources have not been achieved, and there is little consensus about future policy.

"Global Permit-Trading System Suggested As Way To Limit Carbon Dioxide Emissions," Environ. Rptr. Curr. Devel., p. 1014, Oct. 6, 1989. This approach was recommended at the conference by the U.K. Secretary of State for Energy, along with other steps to reduce global warming. Another report, assembled by experts from about 20 countries, said carbon dioxide could rise by 70 percent by the year 2020.
