- OF GENERAL INTEREST: ENERGY SYSTEMS
next three years, the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy
will publish a series of articles aimed at a wide variety of
readers discussing the factors that shape our evolving energy
system. They will be written by D.S. Scott (Director, Inst.
Integrated Energy Systems, Univ. Victoria, Victoria BC V8W 2Y2,
Can.) in a style to be understood and enjoyed by thoughtful
The first installment, "Smelling Land" (19(1),
3-5, Jan. 1994), argues how oxygen can be considered the true
fossil fuel of planet Earth, and discusses the implications of
this realization for understanding energy sources.
Fuel Consumption and Atmospheric CO2," D.L. Klass (Biomass
Energy Res. Assoc., Washington, D.C.), Energy Policy, 21(11),
1076-1078, Nov. 1993.
Argues that fossil fuel consumption is not the primary source
of global CO2 increase, rather it is the reduction in the size of
the biomass reservoir and other anthropogenic and
non-anthropogenic factors. CO2 can best be reduced by growing
more terrestrial and marine biomass.
the Last Gas," N.P. Freestone (Nene Coll. Higher Educ., St.
George's Ave., Northampton NN2 6JD, UK), P.S. Phillips, R. Hall, Chem.
in Britain, 48-50, Jan. 1994.
Survey article describing how landfill gas is making a serious
challenge as a potentially important commodity, and summarizing
technical considerations and economics with examples from the
Warming Impacts of Transport," L. Michaelis (Harwell Lab.,
Oxfordshire OX11 0RA, UK), Science of the Total Environ., 134,
117-124, June 25, 1993.
One of about 35 papers in a special issue on "Transport
and Air Pollution," based on a symposium in Avignon, France
(Sep. 1991). Summarizes results of atmospheric chemistry modeling
at Harwell Laboratory on the warming impacts of NOx, non-methane
hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and water vapor from cars and
aircraft. Aircraft could become an important source of greenhouse
