"Bids for the Greenhouse Auction," F. Pearce, New Scientist,
63-64, Aug. 4, 1990. CO2 emissions need to be cut by at least 60% to halt global
warming. Taxing emissions has been suggested as a way to accomplish this.
However, the conception of pollution permits is gaining favor; countries with
low emissions could trade or sell their permits to more energy consumptive
countries; permits could be reissued from time to time.
"Why Caution is Wrong on Global Warming," J. Gribbin, New
Scientist, p. 18, July 28, 1990. The World Meteorological Organization has
projected a 2° C to 4° C rise in global temperature by the year 2030;
even the minimum predicted rise is too great for the earth to adapt. Politicians
do not seem to be getting this message.
"United States Increasingly Isolated on Global Warming," A.
Meyer (Union Concerned Sci., 26 Church St., Cambridge MA 02238), Nucleus,
p. 3, Summer 1990. The United States has become the principal roadblock to
limiting CO2 emissions, and appears to be ignoring the findings of the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The U.S. projects an increase in CO2
emissions of 25% by 2005 at the same time West Germany plans to decrease
emissions by 25%.
