REPORTS...
ENERGY & EMISSION ANALYSES & TRENDS: UNITED KINGDOM, AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND


Item #d97jun73

Digest of Environmental Statistics No. 18, 1996, U.K. Dept. Environ., June 1996, $34/22 (HMSO).

Covers all areas of the environment, including local air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Emissions of CO2 were about 1 million metric tons lower in 1994 than in 1993, continuing a downward trend that began in 1991. Methane emissions were 6% lower than in the previous year mainly because of a reduction of emissions from coal mines.


Item #d97jun74

Australian Energy Consumption and Production: Historical Trends and Projections to 2009-10 (Res. Rep. 97.2), 169 pp., Feb. 1997, Aus$44 (ABARE).

Includes detailed data on energy consumption, production and trade since 1973-74, and covers all types of energy, all sectors, and all states and internal territories. Gives trends in energy efficiency and in greenhouse gas emissions from the energy sector.


Item #d97jun75

National Greenhouse Gas Inventory 1988-1994, Australian Dept. Environ., 1996. Text is available at this Web site: http://kaos.erin.gov.au/. Or write Senator Robert Hill, Environ. Minister, MG-68 Parliament House, Canberra, 2601 ACT, Australia.

Australia's net greenhouse gas emissions increased about 2.3% from 1990 to 1994, and the rate of increase also grew with time. Emissions from transportation and electricity production accounted for most of the increase; increased deforestation (decreased carbon sequestration) also contributed.


Item #d97jun76

Energy Greenhouse Gas Emissions 1990-1995, 1996 (N.Z. Ministry Commerce).

Gross CO2 emissions in 2000 are likely to exceed 1990 levels by 22-25%. Coupled with a lower than expected level of carbon sequestration through afforestation, this will confound the country's attempts to stabilize CO2 emissions at 1990 levels by 2000.
