A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999
FROM VOLUME 8, NUMBER 11, NOVEMBER 1995
Three reports from the U.S. Energy Information Administration:
Emissions of Greenhouse Gases in the United States, 1987-1994, Oct.
1995. Total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions grew by 1.7% from 1990 to 1993; CO2
emissions grew by 2.4%. A jump in the economy caused CO2 emissions to grow 4.1%
over the 1990 level. Emissions of methane decreased in 1993, while N2O emissions
International Energy Outlook 1995, June 1995. Estimates that carbon
emissions will increase by approximately 35% from 1990 to 2010, and that carbon
emissions from non-OECD countries will be greater than those from OECD countries
by the year 2000. Electricity will remain the fastest-growing form of energy
consumption worldwide; most of the growth will be in non-OECD countries.
Substantial improvement in world energy intensity (energy consumption per unit
of gross domestic product) is expected, most of it occurring in developing
Changes in Energy Intensity in the Manufacturing Sector: 1985-1991,
Oct. 1995. U.S. energy intensity leveled off after the dramatic decreases
observed during the 1980s.
"Canadian Carbon Dioxide Emissions," 12 pp., June 1995. One of
nine articles in Environmental Perspectives Studies and Statistics.
Contact Statistics Canada, Ottawa, Ont. (tel: 613 951 7277; fax: 613 951 8018).
Increased CO2 emissions from 1981 to 1990 correlate with increased gross
domestic product and increased energy prices, with the exception of 1986, when
industries shifted from petroleum to natural gas as crude oil prices rose. The
study apportions total CO2 emissions to the business sector (76%), households
(21%), and government activities (3%).
Australian Energy Consumption and Production: Historical Trends and
Projections to 2009-10 (Res. Rep. 95.1), 184 pp., Feb. 1995, Aus$29. ABARE
Provides detailed long-term projections, historical data, analysis of energy
consumption by sector and fuel type, trends in energy efficiency, and greenhouse
gas emissions from the energy sector.
Asian Coal Prospects to 2010 (IEAPER/18), M. Daniel, Mar. 1995, Ј255
(Ј85 in IEA member countries). IEA Coal Res.
The Asian region has more growth in energy, electricity and coal demand than
any other part of the world; it consumes almost half of all internationally
traded coal. This report covers 18 Asian countries which will play a crucial
role in coal use over the years to 2010.
Inventory and Projections of Minnesota Greenhouse Gas Emissions,
1990-2010, June 1995. Summary, 17 pp.; full report, 110 pp. Available from Ctr.
for Energy & Environ.
Prepared for the Increasing Energy Efficiency and Reducing CO2 Project,
funded by the Legislative Commission on Minnesota Resources, as a basis for
developing an action plan for the state. (The plan is listed in
Reports/Mitigation, this issue--Nov. 1995) Projections suggest that increases in
fuel use are the key issue, since other greenhouse gas sources are expected to
grow very little (or even decline, as in the case of methane). However, even a
goal of stabilization at 1990 levels in the year 2010 is ambitious, since a
decrease of 29% of 2010 emissions would be required.
