Published July 1988 through June 1999
FROM VOLUME 6, NUMBER 11, NOVEMBER 1993
For the following two
reports contact the Nat. Energy Info. Ctr., Energy Info. Admin. (EIA), Rm.

Emissions of Greenhouse Gases in the United States 1985-1990
(DOE/EIA-0573), Oct. 1993. Used as a baseline for the new National Action Plan,
this gives detailed estimates broken down by economic sectors and includes
carbon emissions for 1991. CO2 emissions grew 1.4 % per year during
1985-1990, about half the rate of economic growth. (Discussed and reviewed
Energy, Econ. & Clim. Change, pp. 11-13, Oct. 1993.)
Annual Energy Outlook 1993, with Projections to 2010, Jan. 1993. An
analysis including key provisions of the Energy Policy Act of 1992 finds that
U.S. CO2 emissions could grow 22% between 1990 and 2010 in one of
seven economic scenarios examined. (Discussed in ibid., pp. 13-14, Jan.
Gas Emissions: Estimates for 1990 (EPS 5/AP/4), A.P. Jaques, 1992, no
charge. Publications, Conserv. and Protection, Environ. Can., Ottawa ON K1A 0H3,
Categorizes emissions by various activities, and includes an estimate of the
carbon budget as it relates to biomass-related emissions. Biomass fuels account
for 11% of Canadian CO2 emissions from energy production.
Illinois Inventory of
Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks: 1990 (ILENR/RE-PR-93/04), 137 pp., Sep.
1993, no charge. Obtain from ENR Clearinghouse, Illinois Dept. Energy & Nat.
Resour., 325 W. Adams St., Rm. 300, Springfield IL 62704 (217-785-2800).
Report of a project to test the U.S. EPA methodology for developing
state-level baseline inventories of greenhouse gas emissions and sinks.
Identifies major sources of CO2 , CH4, N2O,
NOx, CO and NMVOCs, outlining methods used and identifying problems encountered
in the inventory process. Emissions are projected to the year 2000.

Report of a conference sponsored by the U.S. Dept. Energy (Snowmass, Colo.,
July 1991). Discusses the potential for projecting future emissions based on
expected changes in various categories of land use, and the considerable

Reports on data from the countries of the Tropical Forestry and Global
Climate Change Research Network, established to meet the IPCC need for estimates
of greenhouse gas balances related to forest activities. Estimates from China
have rarely been included in past studies. Individual volumes will eventually
cover Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, Malaysia, Mexico and Thailand,
locations of most of the deforestation of closed moist forests.
Greenhouse Gases from
Small-Scale Combustion in Developing Countries--A Pilot Study in Manila
(EPA/600/R-92/005), K.R. Smith et al. (Environ. & Policy Inst., Honolulu,
Hawaii), 1992. NTIS: PB92-139369; $19.
Results show that small devices used for cooking in most of the world's
households may represent a more significant source than thought. A more
comprehensive study is planned for India and China.
