Item #d90jul28

E3: Organizing for Environment, Energy and the Economy in the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government, 19 pp., 1990. Task Force on Environ. & Energy, Carnegie Comm. on Sci., Technol. & Gov. (10 Waverly Place, New York NY 10003; 212-998-2150).

The Carnegie Commission seeks ways the U.S. government can better use contributions of the nation's scientists and engineers. Recent intervals of confusion within the government in policy formation on several environmental issues, particularly climatic change, reflect the absence of a top-level organizational mechanism for addressing policy development. This report recommends such a mechanism that would link environment, energy and the economy. An appendix illustrates this three-way linkage using the greenhouse effect as an example.

Item #d90jul29

Promoting Environmentally Sound Economic Progress: What the North Can Do, R. Repetto, May 1990. World Resour. Inst. Publications, POB 4852, Hampden Sta., Baltimore MD 21211; $7.50 + $3 shipping.

Argues that the solutions to major environmental problems lie in broad-based economic reforms, and calls for cooperation among industrial countries on issues of trade, technology, ecology and resource management. Suggestions include national income accounting that includes natural resource depletion, shifting the tax burden onto energy, dismantling unsound agricultural policies, and reducing the burden of developing country debt.

Item #d90jul30

Southern Ecosystem Health and Productivity in a Changing Environment: A Strategic Plan for Research in the Southern United States, 57 pp., Nov. 1989. Request from Air Resour. Res. Consortium, N. Carolina State Univ., Raleigh NC 27606 (919-737-3311).

This proposed 10-year program was developed by the U.S. Forest Service, in cooperation with other federal agencies and organizations, to determine the interactive responses among forest ecosystems, atmospheric pollution, and changing climate and to use this knowledge to manage and protect the forest environment and resources. Research projects ranked by priority are identified under four main headings: effects of the atmosphere on ecosystems, effects of ecosystem change on the atmosphere, ecosystem monitoring, and modeling of ecosystem response.

Item #d90jul31

Climate-Related Impacts Network: Institutional Directory for North America, 263 pp., June 1989 (issued May 1990). Request from Environ. & Societal Impacts Group, Nat. Ctr. Atmos. Res., POB 3000, Boulder CO 80307.

This edition increases to 160 the number of groups, centers, institutes and individuals listed in the 1985 edition. Each entry gives the group's purpose and major research areas, special facilities, journals in which members usually publish, and recent publications.
