Item #d92jan82

Global Climate Change: Potential Impacts and Policy Recommendations (P500-91-007), Oct. 1991. Vol. 1, 26 pp.; Vol. 2, 300 pp. Calif. Energy Commission, Public Commun. Off., 1516 Ninth St., Sacramento CA 95814 (916-654-4989); no charge.

A draft committee report prepared in response to a 1988 legislative mandate. The first volume gives an overview of global climate change, and summarizes the major findings and policy recommendations. The second represents supporting staff analysis first published as a March 1991 draft staff report, but modified to reflect comments received.

Potential impacts are given for water, energy, agriculture, forestry, natural habitat, sea level, air quality, human health and the economy. Recommendations are made for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases such as CO2 (transportation, electric generation, energy efficiency, industry and recycling), methane (landfills, livestock, natural gas systems, coal seams), and CFCs. Recommendations for climate change adaptation policies cover water, agriculture, forestry and air quality.

Item #d92jan83

California's Energy Plan--California Energy Commission 1991 Biennial Report (P-106-91-001), approx. 70 pp., Oct. 1991. No charge from address above.

Addresses the state's needs through the end of the century, emphasizing increased energy efficiency in the transportation, commercial and industrial sectors, increased use of clean, alternative energy supplies, and efficient infrastructure use. Three-quarters of the almost 11,000 megawatts needed by 2001 will be met through energy efficiency; half the rest should be met by renewable resources.
