OF GENERAL INTEREST: COMMENTARY


Item #d95jun15

"Berlin and Global Warming Policy," Nature, 374(6519), 199-200, Mar. 16, 1995.

An unsigned editorial supporting the European Union's proposal to the first meeting of the Conference of Parties to the climate convention, calling for discussion leading up to a specific protocol over the next two years. Also advocates that an organization modeled after the U.N. Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation should replace the IPCC as the source of scientific advice for the convention. Bert Bolin and John Houghton of the IPCC rebut that proposal in a subsequent letter (ibid., 375(6528), 176, May 18, 1995).


Item #d95jun16

"The Great Berlin Greenhouse Compromise," ibid., 374(6525), 749-750, Apr. 27, 1995.

An unsigned editorial emphasizing two of the critical concerns for the next two years for negotiating a climate convention: monitoring of greenhouse gas emissions; and a means for equitably sharing the burdens of mitigation. The European Community could take the lead in the latter by working out an equitable deal among its own members.


Item #d95jun17

"Towards a Single Carbon Currency," J. Hanna (New Econ. Foundation, London, U.K.), New Scientist, pp. 50-51, Apr. 29, 1995.

Proposes the details of a mechanism that would grant every adult in the world a standard, marketable Fossil Fuel Right (FFR). Individuals wishing to use more than their share would purchase extra FFRs from underconsumers.
