Item #d90nov46

"Bids for the Greenhouse Auction," F. Pearce, New Scientist, 63-64, Aug. 4, 1990. CO2 emissions need to be cut by at least 60% to halt global warming. Taxing emissions has been suggested as a way to accomplish this. However, the conception of pollution permits is gaining favor; countries with low emissions could trade or sell their permits to more energy consumptive countries; permits could be reissued from time to time.

Item #d90nov47

"Why Caution is Wrong on Global Warming," J. Gribbin, New Scientist, p. 18, July 28, 1990. The World Meteorological Organization has projected a 2 C to 4 C rise in global temperature by the year 2030; even the minimum predicted rise is too great for the earth to adapt. Politicians do not seem to be getting this message.

Item #d90nov48

"United States Increasingly Isolated on Global Warming," A. Meyer (Union Concerned Sci., 26 Church St., Cambridge MA 02238), Nucleus, p. 3, Summer 1990. The United States has become the principal roadblock to limiting CO2 emissions, and appears to be ignoring the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The U.S. projects an increase in CO2 emissions of 25% by 2005 at the same time West Germany plans to decrease emissions by 25%.
