Item #d94apr145

Concern over U.S. plan: Recent data from the Department of Energy shows that energy-related carbon emissions in 1993 were nearly as high as projected for 1996 under the U.S. Climate Change Action Plan, leading some to question whether the plan will enable the U.S. to limit emissions in the year 2000 to 1990 levels. Extensive analysis of this question is found in Energy, Econ. & Clim. Change, pp. 2-6, Mar. 1994, based on a newly released technical supplement to the action plan and other emissions studies. (See Reports/Emissions Analyses.)


Item #d94apr146

Next IPCC assessment: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will publish a second assessment of scientific understanding in September 1995. The first article in this month's Professional Publications section solicits contributions to the assessment.
