PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS... OF GENERAL INTEREST: POLICY


Item #d94jun1

"The 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.


Item #d94jun2

"A 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 sustained policies.


Item #d94jun3

Discussion on whether carbon taxes will help or hinder the economy, Environ. Sci. & Technol., 28(3), 110A, Mar. 1994.


Item #d94jun4

Describes the philosophy and practice of CSERGE research, which emphasizes multidisciplinary approaches to matters of direct policy relevance.


Item #d94jun5

"Agenda Setting and Acid Precipitation in the United States," L.R. Alm (Dept. Polit. Sci., Boise State Univ., Boise ID 83725), C. Davis, Environ. Mgmt., 17(6), 807-816, Nov.-Dec. 1993. Has implications for global warming policy.
