Global Warming: Policies for Amelioration
Library of Parliament, Research Branch, 1989 - Environmental policy - 43 pages
Background paper discussing policies of the federal government which aim to ameloriate the greenhouse effect. The paper discusses the 1986 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency report and its analysis in relation to greenhouse gases, reduction targets, fossil fuels and carbon dioxide production, as well as the use of energy conservation and efficiency in reducing these gases. The key Canadian energy sectors affecting the greenhouse gases are identified, including transportation and and electricity generation in the production of CO2. Efficiency enhancement in industry, residential and commercial buildings, the use of alternate renewable and non-renewable energy sources, and land use management are recommended to reduce production of the gases. Other gases, such as CFCs and halons, are described. International policies which would contribute to greenhouse gas reduction are suggested, and the legal and regulatory approaches which could be used by the federal government are described.
