MAJOR U.S. REPORTS ISSUED


Item #d91jul98

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is distributing copies of Policy Options for Stabilizing Climate. (See Reports/Of General Interest, this Global Climate Change Digest issue--July 1991.) Mandated by Congress in 1986, the evaluation involves the contributions of hundreds of individuals within and outside the federal government. A public review draft was circulated in 1989. The Foreword to the final version states it has been extensively revised, especially the modeling scenarios that underlie much of the analysis, and checked for consistency and thoroughness against other recent, major reports including those of the IPCC, the Office of Technology Assessment (Global Climate Change Digest, Reports/United States, Mar.), and the National Research Council (see below).

In June 1991, the second of four panel reports on Policy Implications of Greenhouse Warming was released as a prepublication manuscript by the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering and the Institute of Medicine. (See ReportsOf General Interest, this Global Climate Change Digest issue--July 1991.) It expands the chapter on mitigation options contained in the synthesis report released in April (Global Climate Change Digest, News, May 1991). Reports of two other panels (scientific basis, impacts and adaptation options) are forthcoming. The study is supported by federal (U.S. EPA) and private funds.
