CO2 AND N2O EMISSIONS
Transport and Climate Change: Cutting Carbon Dioxide Emissions from
Cars, C. Holman, 1991, £6. Order from Friends of the Earth, 26-28
Underwood St., London N1 7JQ, UK. Reviewed by C. Agren in Acid News, p.
6, Dec. 1991.
CO2 emissions in the U.K. could be stabilized by 1993-94, and reduced by 30%
by 2005. Stabilization would require tax incentives for energy-efficient cars
along with public information campaigns; reduction would require reduced traffic
Factors Influencing NOx and CO2 Emissions from Road Traffic in
Central and East Europe, M. Fergusson, 1991. Contact Earth Resour. Res., 258
Pentonville Rd., London N1 9JY, UK. Reviewed by C. Agren in Acid News,
p. 4, June 1991.
In this study, conducted for WWF International, a model for projecting
emissions of air pollutants from road vehicles showed that emissions of CO2 from
private cars in Poland may nearly double in the coming decade.
NOx Emissions from Coal Combustion (IEACR/36), L.L. Sloss, 66
pp., Mar. 1991. Order from Info. Officer, IEA Coal Res., Gemini House, 10-18
Putney Hill, London SW15 6AA, UK; or from NTIS: DE91-622525; $104.
Evaluates the extent to which coal combustion is contributing to emissions
of nitrogen oxides and their environmental effects, as a basis for establishing
appropriate control methods. Includes N2O, a greenhouse gas that also
contributes to stratospheric ozone depletion.
CO2 Emissions: Perspectives and Future Options for Canadian Electric
Utilities and the Coal Industry. Vol. 1. Study Report, Hatch Assoc.
(Toronto, Ont., Can.), 160 pp., 1990. NTIS: MIC-91-06131; $36.50.
Discusses the effects of climate change on the Canadian coal industry and
utility operations, assesses policies in other countries, summarizes problems
with CO2 emissions, and assesses technological alternatives available for
