COMMENTARY


Item #d91nov58

"Trading out of Climate Trouble?" M. Grubb, New Scientist, p. 8, Nov. 2, 1991. National targets could be used to implement Europe's climate policy, with countries free to trade emission permits.


Item #d91nov59

"Increased Use of Renewable Energy," P.H. Ableson, Science, p. 1073, Sep. 6, 1991. Depletion of reserves of fossil fuels and concerns about greenhouse gases guarantee an ultimate major role for renewable energy in the U.S.


Item #d91nov60

"On the Road from Chantilly to Rio," D. Pearlman, Coal Voice, p. 7, Sep.-Oct. 1991. (Nat. Coal Assoc., 1130 17th St. NW, Washington DC 20036.) Obligating major industrialized countries to severely limit CO2 emissions is a long-held objective of many nations and must be taken very seriously.


Item #d91nov61

"What We Must Do to Save the Planet," C. Tickell, New Scientist, p. 16, Sep. 7, 1991. Society must be refashioned through a relatively short list of principles on which governments can act individually and jointly.


Item #d91nov62

"Green Light for Precautionary Science," P. Johnston, M. Simmonds, ibid., p. 4, Aug. 3, 1991. The precautionary approach shifts the burden of proof to give the environment the benefit of any doubt, in contrast to the current strategy of retrospective action when environmental damage has become obvious.


Item #d91nov63

"Reducing CO2 Emissions," C. Caccia, Environment, 2-3, July-Aug. 1991. Discusses the dilemma between the developing and developed worlds of dealing equitably with CO2 emissions.
