A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999
FROM VOLUME 7, NUMBER 4, APRIL 1994
Energy Information Administration reports available from the
Natl. Energy Info. Ctr., Rm 1F-048, Forrestal Bldg., Washington

Information Serv.), 5285 Port Royal Rd., Springfield VA 22161
Energy Use and Carbon Emissions: Some International
Comparisons, Apr. 1994. Examines 1970-1992 trends, finding
that current emissions from non-OECD countries (52%) exceed those
from OECD countries, a reversal from 1972 reflecting the faster
growth in carbon emissions in the former.
Emissions of Greenhouse Gases in the United States:
1985-1990 (DOE/EIA-0573), 112 pp., 1993. A report mandated by
the Energy Policy Act of 1992. CO2 emissions grew at an annual
rate of 1.4%, slower than the 2.4% rate for gross domestic
product. Uncertainties in the estimates of CO2 emissions from
biomass and of other greenhouse gases are discussed extensively
in Energy, Econ. & Clim. Change, pp. 11-13, Oct. 1993.
Annual Energy Outlook 1994. With Projections to 2010
Climate Change Action Plan: Technical Supplement
(DOE/PO-0011), Off. Policy, Planning & Prog. Evaluation, U.S.
Dept. Energy, 1994.
Gives details of the assumptions concerning future
energy-related CO2 emissions used to formulate the climate action
plan needed for the U.S. to meet its commitment under the climate
convention. Assumes a 3.4% increase from 1990 to 1998, then a
slight decline by the year 2000.
and Comparison of Four California Greenhouse Gas Emission
Inventories, P. Fields, 75 pp., Apr. 1993, $35. Contact the
author at E.H. Pechan & Assoc., 2880 Sunrise Blvd., S. 220,
Rancho Cordova CA 95742 (916-852-1794).
The comparison, made on the basis of purpose, scope,
methodology and results, indicates relative strengths and
weaknesses and has general applications to inventory development.
Emissions from Coal Use (IEAPER/06), M. Takeshita et al., 28
pp., Nov. 1993, £30 (member countries of the Intl. Energy
Agency)/£90 (nonmember countries). IEA Coal Res. Publications,
Gemini Hse., 10-18 Putney Hill, London SW15 6AA (tel:
Analyzes how emissions depend on combustion technology used,
particularly those used for limiting other potentially harmful
emissions such as SO2. For instance, fluidized bed and selective
non-catalytic combustion leads to higher N2O emissions.
