America at the Crossroads: A National Energy Strategy Poll, 23 pp., Jan. 1991. Contact A. Meyer, Union of Concerned Sci. (UCS), 1616 P St. NW, S. 310, Washington DC 20036 (202-332-0900).

Conducted by leading Democratic and Republic pollsters for UCS and other groups. A national survey of 1200 adults shows that three out of four believe reducing energy demand makes more sense than increasing domestic production. Seven out of ten favor a U.S. lead in international action against global warming, and most favor 40 mpg vehicle mileage standards.


Item #d91apr52

The Heat Is On: America's CO2 Polluters, 40 pp., Nov. 1990. Available from Citizen Action, 1300 Connecticut Ave. NW, S. 401, Washington DC 20036 (202-857-5153); $25.

Aimed at influencing the national energy strategy, this study found that electric utilities emitted 36% of the nation's total CO2; the transportation sector was next at 30% and the industrial sector 23%. Emissions are tabulated by state and by individual utility plants. Investment in energy efficiency is recommended.
