NEWS NOTES


Item #d95apr134

Country studies program. Over 90 scientists and energy policy makers from 29 developing countries learned skills needed to control their countries' greenhouse gas emissions at a workshop held at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory in April. The week-long session was a major component of the U.S. Country Studies Program, which is also hosting regional workshops throughout the world (see NEWS NOTES, Global Climate Change Digest, March 1994). The rest of the 1995 regional workshops are listed in this month's CALENDAR (Uruguay, Mexico, Tanzania, Czech Republic, Korea); the first four were listed in Global Climate Change Digest, February and March.


Item #d95apr135

"If the Mercury Soars, So May Health Hazards," R. Stone, Science, pp. 957-958, Feb. 17. Concern about the potential effects of global warming has centered so far on the physical effects, such as elevated sea level and altered storm activity. But the World Health Organization plans to issue a major report on health impacts later this year, and the upcoming IPCC assessment will include a chapter on the topic. Summarizes recent studies on increased risk of malaria and other diseases, and increased mortality from heat waves in cities.


Item #d95apr136

"U.S. Insurers Meet with Vice President on Climate Change," Global Environ. Change Rep., p. 7, Feb. 24. In recent years, insurers have absorbed a series of extraordinary losses from natural events. They agreed to review their losses and evaluate the potential effect of climate change.


Item #d95apr137

"Planes Fly Through Climate Loophole," F. Pearce, New Scientist, p. 4, Jan. 7. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has recommended that international air traffic be excluded from national targets for reducing CO2 emissions under the climate convention-because it is too difficult to determine which country is responsible for what.
