This month's column adds to last month's list of 13 newsletters available on the Internet. It begins with Weathervane, a new site just launched by Resources for the Future, which is more than a newsletter but is included here for completeness.
An Internet forum intended to provide news media, legislators, opinion leaders, and the interested public with analysis and commentary (from all sides of the issue) on U.S. and international policy related to greenhouse gases. Published the first and third Monday of each month, each issue includes a number of feature articles written by RFF staff, invited policymakers and opinion leaders, as well as complementary features such as a glossary of terms used in climate negotiations.
Published occasionally by the United Nations Environment Program, Division of Environmental Information and Assessment. Articles cover such topics as assessment and reporting, capacity building, data and information management, and the Earthwatch program.
The newsletter of the Ecological Monitoring and Assessment Network (EMAN) of Environment Canada, which brings together the often independent Canadian monitoring and research activities, such as the Ecological Science Cooperatives. Available in English and in French.
This commercially published newsletter is available twice monthly in print or electronic format, by subscription only. It provides concise, objective information on policy trends, scientific research, and industrial developments concerning global climate change, stratospheric ozone depletion, deforestation, and sustainable development. Available at this site (for no charge) are contents of recent issues, a sample issue, an extensive list of related Web sites, and a list of resources and reports.
The Globe is a bimonthly newsletter (circulation over 3000) produced by the UK Global Environmental Research Office, to disseminate information about global environmental issues in the form of short articles and concise news items. The readership is very broad based; articles are written in a less formal style than for scientific journals, and technical terms are kept to a minimum.
The bulletin of the Globe Europe Network (Brussels, Belgium), which aims to promote and assist joint action and exchanges among parliamentarians in all European countries who work for better protection of the environment.
Provided by the International Energy Agency's Greenhouse Gas R&D Program; promotes that organization and the activities of its member countries. Publicizes recent international developments and has articles on technical, political and socio-economic topics.
Intended for those interested and involved in climate-related impact assessment, Network Newsletter aims to develop a network by keeping the community up to date on the many activities in this wide and varied field. Compiled and published by the Environmental and Societal Impacts Group (ESIG) of the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
The Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) "seeks ideas that transcend ideology." Working mainly in the United States, but with a global perspective, RMI's mission is to foster the efficient and sustainable use of resources as a path to global security by harnessing the problem-solving power of free-market economics. Issues covered include energy, green development, water, transportation, economic renewal, corporate security, and national security.
Produced by the U.N. Development Program's Sustainable Energy and Environment Division (SEED), a unit formed in 1994 through a consolidation of existing environmental units of UNDP, plus the addition of a new unit: the Energy and Atmosphere Program.
Highlights some of the current activities of the Stockholm Environmental Institute (SEI). The articles are brief, journalistic in style, and do not necessarily represent official SEI policy.
The aims of this quarterly bulletin (also available in print) are to promote communication between the nations of the North and South on the issue of climate change, to promote the interests of developing nations in the climate debate, and to provide authoritative and timely information on relevant scientific, technical and policy matters. The complete current issue is posted at this site, which also has links to archived articles from previous issues.
Published quarterly by the Secretariat of the UN Climate Change Convention, the Secretariat of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and the UNEP Information Unit for Conventions (IUC). Available in printed form.
GLOBEC (GLOBal ocean ECosystems dynamics) is a component of the U.S. Global Change Research Program organized by oceanographers and fisheries scientists, to address how global climate change may affect the abundance and production of animals in the sea. GLOBEC research is supported by the National Science Foundation and several units of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The periodical newsletter of the U.S. Country Studies Program. Contains program updates, news, and brief accounts of recent program workshops, as well as short articles by participating countries and other program cooperators. Available in printed form.
Produced and published by the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, this series was recently terminated with the publication of issue No. 34, "Historical Variations in Terrestrial Biospheric Carbon Storage."
