[en] Two approaches to slowing down the increase of the greenhouse effect are compared: (1) planting of trees, a solution largely considered in international meetings and (2) increase of productivity of agricultural land by soil fertility improvements. Option (2) appears 5 to 10 times cheaper and has a quicker effect on the atmosphere than option (1). It deserves, therefore, higher consideration as a possible option in developing countries. Whereas in industrialized countries with already highly intensive agriculture practices option (1) deserves more attention. (author)

[en] Various data are given in graphical form on primary energy production, consumption and on reserves. The energy carriers considered are: oil, gas, coal, hydro and nuclear (uranium). The subdivision of countries is done in categories like developing countries, OECD, Eastern Europe, OPEC or alternatively as geographical regions. On page 18 there is a section on 'nuclear power electricity generation capacity'. Another group of data are on non-energy figures like GPD and trade; here the partners are the groups 'developing countries' vs 'industrialized countries'

[en] There were 413 completed commercial nuclear reactors worldwide in 1991, with a net electrical generating capacity of 317,898 MWe. Another 112 reactors were on order or under construction with a projected capacity of 94,030 MWe. These totals exclude reactors of less than 30 MWe in size and include some reactors with indefinite status
[en] Advanced countries plan to withdraw existing aid programs from the developing countries if these fail to comply with environmental programs - in particular the CO2 emission reductions - emissioned by the former. On one hand, part of the developing countries are oil producers, on the other hand all of them need fossile fuels for the development, especially industrialization. A constructive solution of this clash of interests between the advanced- and the developing countries is called for
