- OF GENERAL INTEREST: NATIONAL POLICIES
A National Renewable Energy Strategy," K.L. Kozloff (World
Resour. Inst., 1709 New York Ave. NW, Washington DC 20006), Environ.
Sci. & Technol., 28(4), 196A-197A, Apr. 1994. The
strategy must be national because some benefits (e.g., job
creation) accrue to states, whereas others affect much larger

Emissions of Ozone-Depleting Substances in Brazil," S.M.
Machado Carvalho (Inst. Eletrotéchnica e Energia, Univ. Sao
Paulo, CP 64521, CEP 05508-900, Sao Paulo, Brazil), Global
Environ. Change, 3(4), 350-356, Dec. 1993.
Implementation of Montreal Protocol programs is not as
straightforward in developing countries as it may seem to the
developed world. This article describes problems encountered in
Brazil, such as strong development pressures and the lack of a
well-established national infrastucture to monitor the process.
Recommends establishing a National Task Group Office and
investing in education and training.

"Prospects for CO2 Emissions Reduction Policy in the
USA," S. Rayner (Pacific Northwest Lab., 901 D St. SW, S.
900, Washington DC 20024), 12-31. Examines the political and
social context in the U.S. In the medium term, the most
cost-effective contribution the U.S. may make to global emissions
reduction is technology transfer to developing countries, leaving
domestic fossil fuel reductions to the long term.
"Indonesia and Global Climate Change
Negotiations--Potential Opportunities and Constraints for
Participation, Leadership and Commitment," C.H. Petrich
(Bldg. 4500-N, MS-6206, Oak Ridge Nat. Lab., POB 2008, Oak Ridge
TN 37831), 53-77. Examination of factors likely to affect
Indonesia's participation shows that, although the Indonesian
government may be an advocate of sustainable development, it has
little ability to follow through on large-scale commitments
because of domestic concerns.
"Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions in
China--Institutional, Legal and Cultural Constraints and
Opportunities," R.D. Perlack (Oak Ridge Nat. Lab., POB 2008,
Oak Ridge TN 37831), M. Russell, Z. Shen, 78-100. Because of more
immediate problems, China will not take steps to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions unless the industrialized countries
reduce their own emissions and contribute money and technology to
"Implementation of Greenhouse Gas Reductions in the
European Community--Institutional and Cultural Factors," B.
Wynne (Ctr. Environ. Change, Lancaster Univ., Bailrigg, Lancaster
LA1 4YF, UK), 101-128. Attempts to establish EC policy on global
warming have coincided with increasing conflict over moves toward
greater monetary and political union, but the proposed carbon tax
is likely to be favored as a mechanism least suggestive of
central political authority. The informal influence on policy of
the existing NGO network is considerable.
