Climate Change Science

Early work on absorbance

In the late-1980s I performed work at the Atmospheric Aerosol group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on whole-column absorption of infrared radiation by greenhouse gases CO2 and CH4. Here is the paper that resulted from that work.

Greenhouse Accounting

In 1991, while working at the Tellus Institute, I put together a simple approach to accounting for greenhouse gas emissions on a country basis. I published a brief paper in Nature’s Scientific Correspondence section on this work.


While at the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IEER) in Washington DC working with Arjun Makhijani, I completed a Global Warming Primer which was published in “Science for Democratic Action”, IEERs newsletter.
