PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS... OF GENERAL INTEREST: POLICY
Embodiment of Carbon in Imports of Manufactured
Products--Implications for International Agreements on Greenhouse
Gas Emissions," A.W. Wyckoff (Science Directorate, OECD, 2
rue A. Pascal, 75775 Paris Cedex 16, France), J.M. Roop, Energy
Policy, 22(3), 187-194, Mar. 1994.
Global warming policies based on reducing domestic greenhouse
gas emissions ignore the carbon embodied in international trade
flows, which could be important if emission reduction schemes
include only a subset of emitting countries. This analysis shows,
and discusses implications of the finding, that a significant
amount (about 13%) of the total carbon emissions of the six
largest OECD countries is embodied in manufactured imports.
Global Fossil Free Energy Scenario: Towards Climate
Stabilization?" S. Boyle (Intl. Inst. Energy Conserv., 750
First St. NW, S. 940, Washington DC 20002), ibid., 22(2),
106-109, Feb. 1994.
Gives results of a project set up to evaluate the technical,
economic and policy implications of substantially reducing fossil
fuel use, employing a range of climate, energy and economic
models. The goal is technically feasible and has generally
reasonable economic implications, but will require extensive and
on whether carbon taxes will help or hinder the economy, Environ.
Sci. & Technol., 28(3), 110A, Mar. 1994.
