Several related entries are listed in the next section.


Item #d95may41

The Climate Change Action Plan as an Economic Development Strategy for the United States, S. Laitner, 26 pp., 1994 (ACEEE).

The macroeconomic benefits of the Clinton Administration's Climate Change Action Plan could generate a net employment increase of 157,000 jobs by 2000, and 260,000 jobs by 2010.


Item #d95may42

Australia's National Report Under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, 1994. Available from Community Info. Unit., Dept. Environ., GPO Box 787, Canberra ACT 2601 Australia (tel: 61 8 803 772; fax: 61 6 274 1970).

Although Australia's initial greenhouse gas reduction goal is to stabilize emissions based on 1988 levels by the year 2000, by late 1994, there will still be a substantial gap remaining to reach that goal. Comments in Energy, Econ. & Clim. Change, pp. 7-8, Nov. 1994, note that the above report only mentions this goal in passing, and focuses exclusively on more tractable issues raised by increases in emissions. One of the leading critics of Australia's climate policies, Peter Kinrade, of the Australian Conservation Foundation, said that the government has made little or no effort to tackle the problem.


Item #d95may43

Climate Change: The New Zealand Response, Sep. 1994. Contact Environ. Ministry, POB 10362, Wellington, N.Z.

According to this first communication to the United Nations under the Framework Convention on Climate Change, New Zealand is well on the way to reducing CO2 to 1990 levels by the year 2000. Net carbon dioxide emissions should be 50-59% below 1990 levels; the reduction for methane should be 8%. Although gross emissions will continue to rise, the drop in net emissions is attributable to the role of the country's forests as sinks.


Item #d95may44

The Report on Options for Canada's National Action Program on Climate Change, Nov. 1994. Available from CCTG Secretariat, Natural Resour. Canada, 580 Booth St., 13th Fl., Ottawa ON K1A 0E4, Can. (tel: 613 996 0767; fax: 613 947 3317).

Released at a meeting of Canadian federal and provincial energy and environment leaders. Canada will miss greenhouse gas emission reduction targets if nothing is done to reduce the current level of emissions. The Climate Change Task Force has proposed five emission reduction scenarios.
