Our extensive collection of documents.
Archives of the
Global Climate Change Digest
A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999
FROM VOLUME 10, NUMBER 6, JUNE 1997
ENERGY & EMISSION ANALYSES & TRENDS: UNITED KINGDOM, AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND
Digest of Environmental Statistics No. 18, 1996, U.K. Dept.
Environ., June 1996, $34/£22 (HMSO).
Covers all areas of the environment, including local air pollution and
greenhouse gas emissions. Emissions of CO2 were about 1 million metric tons
lower in 1994 than in 1993, continuing a downward trend that began in 1991.
Methane emissions were 6% lower than in the previous year mainly because of a
reduction of emissions from coal mines.
Australian Energy Consumption and Production: Historical Trends and
Projections to 2009-10 (Res. Rep. 97.2), 169 pp., Feb. 1997, Aus$44 (ABARE).
Includes detailed data on energy consumption, production and trade since
1973-74, and covers all types of energy, all sectors, and all states and
internal territories. Gives trends in energy efficiency and in greenhouse gas
emissions from the energy sector.

Australia's net greenhouse gas emissions increased about 2.3% from 1990 to
1994, and the rate of increase also grew with time. Emissions from
transportation and electricity production accounted for most of the increase;
increased deforestation (decreased carbon sequestration) also contributed.
Energy Greenhouse Gas Emissions 1990-1995, 1996 (N.Z. Ministry
Gross CO2 emissions in 2000 are likely to exceed 1990 levels by 22-25%.
Coupled with a lower than expected level of carbon sequestration through
afforestation, this will confound the country's attempts to stabilize CO2
emissions at 1990 levels by 2000.
