Some Highlights of a Resources for the Future Workshop
--Controlling and Adapting to Greenhouse Warming, Washington, D.C.
June 14-15, 1988, N.J. Rosenburg, 19 pp., June 1988. Available from Resour. for
the Future, 1616 P St. NW, Washington DC 20036 (202-328-5071).
The workshop provided a forum for natural and social scientists to review
and discuss with others opportunities for controlling the rate of greenhouse gas
accumulation and for adjusting to whatever degree of warming is unavoidable.
This summary was prepared for use at the Toronto Conference on the Changing
Atmosphere ten days later; a full proceedings will follow in early 1989. Lists
15 specific findings of the workshop.

Problems and Uncertainties for Agriculture," pp. 203-220, that concludes it

Ecosystems, B. Bolin, B.R. Döös et al., eds., 541 pp., 1986. Wiley

Council of Sci. Unions), this project was supported by the UNEP and WMO. The
author finds that the book warrants careful study by scientists; policy makers
will benefit from the summary and preface. Also briefly reviewed in Ambio,

Kellogg in Bull. Amer. Meteor. Soc., 68(7), 821-822, July 1987.
A collection of previously published reports (some revised) that the
reviewer finds to be a valuable but not critical collection on carbon dioxide,
climate change and its societal impacts, and options for delaying change.
