Item #d92jun94

British Columbia inventory. (See News Notes, this GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE DIGEST issue--June 1992.) The first report below is an overview of the B.C. Clean Air Strategy, available at no charge from Air Resources Branch, Min. Environ., Lands & Parks, 777 Broughton St., Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X5, Can. (800-665-7120 or 604-387-9933). The other four are detailed documents for sale by Crown Public. Inc., 546 Yates St., Victoria, B.C. V8W 1K8 (604-386-0221). A booklet summarizing those reports will soon be available from the Air Resources Branch.

Ensuring Clean Air: Developing a Clean Air Strategy for British Columbia, 45 pp., Apr. 1992. Provides information for those interested in participating in development of the strategy: air quality issues of importance; views expressed by stakeholders at a 1991 conference; the process for developing the strategy; some anticipated outcomes.

Evaluation of CO2 Management Measures, ARA Consulting Group, 150 pp., Apr. 1992. Evaluates abatement potential, cost-effectiveness, and nonmonetary barriers to potential policies applicable to: forest management, pulp and paper, road transportation, the residential and agricultural sectors, electricity generation, and CO2 extraction and engineering.

British Columbia Emission Inventory of Nitrogen Oxides, Volatile Organic Compounds and Ozone (NOx/VOC/O3) as Greenhouse Gases, Concord Environ. Corp., 200 pp., Apr. 1992. Presents an emission inventory and recommends management measures. These gases contribute a small fraction of the greenhouse warming potential for the province. The most probable reduction measures, mainly in road transportation, would reduce anthropogenic emissions by at most about 10%.

An Inventory and Analysis of Control Measures for Methane for British Columbia, Levelton & Assoc. et al., 200 pp., Oct. 1991. The inventory portion estimates 1990 and 2005 emissions from natural and anthropogenic sources (landfills, manure, natural gas and oil industries, domestic animals, prescribed fires, mobile and stationary combustion sources, incineration).

Ozone Depleting Greenhouse Gases in British Columbia, Peat, Marwick, Stevenson & Kellog, 100 pp., Apr. 1992. Evaluates banked volumes, annual consumption and emissions; investigates possible control options.


Item #d92jun95

Global Climate Change: Management Strategies for Wisconsin, E. Mosher et al., 33 pp., Dec. 1991, no charge. Bureau Air Mgmt., Wisc. Dept. Nat. Resour., POB 7921, Madison WI 53707 (608-266-2621).

Although uncertain, the potential consequences of climate change for the state are serious enough to warrant action now and planning for climatic change. Emissions of greenhouse gases should be reduced through actions which also have other significant economic and environmental benefits, such as energy efficiency and increased forest productivity. Additional research and monitoring is needed; the existing Acid Deposition Research Council should be expanded and reconstituted. Public information and involvement programs should be developed. Forest and agroforest production (including tree planting) should be increased.


Item #d92jun96

Proceedings: EPA/NGA Workshop on Global Climate and State Actions, December 3-4, 1990 (EPA/600/9-91/024), B. Wells, Ed., 1991. NTIS: PB91-219105; $8.

Highlights state and federal actions explored at a workshop sponsored by the National Governor's Association and the U.S. EPA. Many state governments are wasting no time working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; nearly all methods being used produce other benefits as well, and reflect a broad concern with environmental and energy issues.
