Global Climate Change DigestArchives of the
Global Climate Change Digest

A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d90oct10

"Global Warming: The Coal Industry View," J. Harrison (British Coal Corp.), New Sci., p. 10, Sep. 1, 1990. The coal industries of Europe are agreed that action is necessary to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and that much could be done with minimal economic penalty and with the potential to lead to other significant benefits.

Item #d90oct11

"A View on Tropical Deforestation," R. Radulovich (Dept. Atmos. Sci., Cornell Univ., Ithaca NY 14853), Nature, 346(6281), 214, July 19, 1990. The problem of deforestation cannot be solved in isolation by the developed world, especially if the realities of life in the Third World are ignored.

Item #d90oct12

"The Politics of Global Warming: Will the U.S. be Isolated and Outnumbered?" R. Sandler (Woods Hole Res. Ctr.), The Amicus J., 12(3), 4, Summer 1990. It is clear from a May 1990 meeting in Nairobi that African nations sense a double standard when countries with high fossil fuel consumption attempt to halt tropical deforestation.

Item #d90oct13

"What to do About Greenhouse Warming," S.F. Singer (Environ. Sci. Dept., Univ. Virginia), Environ. Sci. Technol., 24(8), 1138-1139, Aug. 1990. The scientific basis for a greenhouse warming is too uncertain to justify drastic action, but many kinds of energy conservation and efficiency moves make economic sense anyway.

Item #d90oct14

"On Long Term Climate Prediction," M. Thatcher, J. Air Waste Mgmt. Assoc., 40(8), 1086-1087, Aug. 1990. Opening The Hadley Centre in Bracknell, Berkshire, Britain's Prime Minister describes how the center will help establish a realistic international program and timetable for action to address the assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Item #d90oct15

"Energy: Coping with Risk," J. Goldemberg (Univ. Sao Paulo, Rua da Reitoria 109, Cidade Universitária 05508, Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil), Energy Policy, 18(3), 228-232, Apr. 1990. Explains why a preventive strategy is preferable to an adaptive one for responding to the threat of global climatic change.
