A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d92nov77

The Heat is On: America's CO2 Polluters, 60 pp., June 1992, $50 ($25 nonprofit). Citizen Action, 1120 19th St. NW, Washington DC 20036 (202-775-1580).

Compared U.S. CO2 emissions for 1990 with 1980 using U.S. Energy Information Administration data. Overall growth was 5%; the largest increases came from electric utilities (16%) and transportation (14%); the residential sector showed the largest decrease (13%). Also analyzes emissions by each state.

Item #d92nov78

The Carbon Dioxide Report for Canada, 60 pp., May 1992, $25. Friends of the Earth, 701-251 Laurier Ave., Ottawa, Ont. K1P 5J6, Can. (613-230-3352).

Canadian emissions fell from 465 to 435 million metric tons between 1989 and 1990, primarily because of the recession. Analyses and policy descriptions are given for various provinces, geographical regions and industries.

Item #d92nov79

CO2 Emissions from the Developing Countries: Better Understanding the Role of Energy in the Long Term, J. Sathaye, N. Goldman, A. Ketoff (Intl. Energy Studies Group, Lawrence Berkeley Lab., Berkeley, Calif.), Eds., July 1991. Vol. I: Summary (LBL-29507 Rev.); Vol. II: Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Venezuela (LBL-30059); Vol. III: China, India, Indonesia and South Korea (LBL-30060); Vol. IV: Ghana, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Countries (LBL-30061). Available from NTIS. Initial results were published in The Energy Journal, 12(1), 161-196, 1991.

Results of this U.S. EPA-funded study were used by the IPCC to develop policy options. Projections of high and low emissions scenarios for the year 2025 were derived in collaboration with research groups in the developing world, based on their assumptions about future energy use. Rapidly increasing energy demands, spurred by high rates of population growth and the desire for greater material comfort, will outpace energy-efficiency improvements in developing world economies, causing CO2 emissions to rise. However, per capita emissions will grow relatively slowly, and will remain only a fraction of per capita levels in industrialized nations in 2025.
