COMMENTARY


Item #d91apr18

"U.S. Water Resources Versus an Announced but Uncertain Climate Change," P.E. Waggoner (Connecticut Agric. Exper. Sta., Box 1106, New Haven CT 06504), Science, p. 1002, Mar. 1, 1991. Those concerned with managing water resources face a dilemma in light of uncertainties in science and the time needed for municipal or agricultural response.


Item #d91apr19

"Climate Change Mitigation," M.L. Halberstadt (Atmos. Chem. Panel, Motor Vehicles Mfr. Assoc.), J. Air Waste Mgmt. Assoc., p. 266, Mar. 1991. Of all available control alternatives, carbon fees appear to the least painful, to the largest number of people, if greenhouse gases must be controlled.


Item #d91apr20

"Paper Versus Polystyrene: A Complex Choice," M.B. Hocking (Dept. Chem., Univ. Victoria, Victoria B.C. V8W 3P6, Can.), Science, pp. 504-505, Feb. 1, 1991. Analyzes the manufacture, use and disposal of drink cups, including the raw materials and energy, pollutants emitted, recycle potential, heat recovery and landfilling. Concludes that polystyrene foam cups apparently should receive a much more even-handed assessment regarding their environmental impact.


Item #d91apr21

"Making Global Warming Public Property," J. Maddox, Nature, p. 189, Jan. 17, 1991. Summarizes a January conference held in Britain by the Ditchley Foundation where surprisingly divergent views on climate change were expressed deattendance by a small group who were self-selected by their interest.
