Item #d93feb105

Climate Change: Our National Program for CO2 Emissions. A Discussion Document, Dec. 1992. U.K. Dept. Environ., POB 1150, Dept. DOE, London N4 1UB, UK (tel: +44-81-809-4609; fax: +44-81-802-4189).


Item #d93feb106

Two items from Friends of the Earth-UK, 26-28 Underwood St., London N1 7JQ:

The Carbon/Energy Tax and Industry: Exploding the Myths, S. Roberts, Apr. 1992. Intended to counter misleading industry claims about the proposed EC carbon/energy tax. The proposal still has significant weaknesses, such as its contingence on similar action by the U.S. and Japan, and exceptions for heavy energy users such as the steel and chemical industries.

Efficiency without Tears: "No Regrets" Energy Policy To Combat Climate Change, T. Jackson, Aug. 1992. Proposes policies that would alter the current trend in the U.K. toward uneconomic and carbon-intensive energy technologies. They include a small carbon tax, which would support energy conservation investments through a U.K. national energy bank.
