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 #d91jun79

"Does the Global Greenhouse Have a Built-in Thermostat?" New Scientist, p. 20, May 11, 1991. Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography analyzed data for the 1987 El Niño, finding that cloud cover seemed to keep sea surface temperatures from rising above 32° C. It is not clear that a similar mechanism would limit greenhouse warming, however. (See Ramanathan paper and discussion of it by Heymsfield, Prof. Pubs./Gen. Interest, this Global Climate Change Digest issue--June 1991.)

Item #d91jun80

"Where Does All the Carbon Go?" ibid., p. 21, May 4, 1991. Roger Sedjo of Resources for the Future concludes that forest growth in North America, Europe and the Soviet Union is absorbing large amounts of carbon dioxide, and may help account for the disappearance of up to a third of the carbon produced by fossil fuel combustion. (See also the review, "The Global Carbon Cycle," in Prof. Pubs./Gen. Interest, this Global Climate Change Digest issue--June 1991.)

Item #d91jun81

"Europe in the Vanguard?" P. Aldhous, Nature, p. 643, Apr. 25, 1991. At the Oceans, Climate and Man meeting in Turin, Italy, sentiment emerged for Europe to take the lead in oceanographic research in the 1990s, in part through European Community support for participation in the World Ocean Circulation Experiment.

Item #d91jun82

Global Environ. Change, 1(1), Dec. 1990.

"Science Conference in Search of Answers," pp. 77-82, gives a condensed executive summary and introductory overview of the Bergen Science Conference on Sustainable Development, Science and Policy (May 1990). One of five major themes was management of global climate change.

"Global Change and Polar Science," F.E. Nelson, pp. 82-83, is an account of the Conference on the Role of Polar Regions in Global Change, June 1990, Fairbanks, Alaska.
