FROM VOLUME 3, NUMBER 10, OCTOBER 1990
"Global Warming: The Coal Industry View," J. Harrison (British
Coal Corp.), New Sci., p. 10, Sep. 1, 1990. The coal industries of
Europe are agreed that action is necessary to reduce emissions of greenhouse
gases and that much could be done with minimal economic penalty and with the
