A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999
FROM VOLUME 10, NUMBER 9, SEPTEMBER 1997
"Prediction of Household Levels of Greenhouse-Gas Emissions from
Personal Automotive Transportation," L.A. Greening (Energy Analysis
Prog., MS-90-4000, Lawrence Berkeley Natl. Lab., Berkeley CA 94720), L.
Schipper et al.,Energy, 22(5), 499-460, May. 1997
Demonstrates that different subgroups in the population described by
various economic and demographic characteristics have different levels of
greenhouse gas emissions from personal automotive transportation, and that
these same characteristics also determine other household emissions.
Exploitation of these links between emissions and socioeconomic
characteristics is an important aspect of policy design, which has been
previously overlooked, and which suggests a much broader set of potential
policy options for mitigating emissions than previously considered.
"Atmospheric Effects of the Emerging Mainland Chinese Transportation
System at Beyond the Regional Scale," S. Elliott (Earth &
Environ. Sci. Div., Los Alamos Natl. Lab., Los Alamos NM 87545), M. Shen
et al.,J. Atmos. Chem., 27(1), 31-70, May 1997.
Adopts the latest projections of Chinese automobile manufacture and
performs some quantitative assessments of the extent of pollution
generated. Focuses on the oxidant ozone, but includes some reference to CO2
emissions and global impacts. Discusses recent estimates of future air
traffic over the Pacific rim.
