|Taking a Byte Out of Carbon - Electronics Innovation for Climate Protection (WRI, 1998, 56 pages)|
The authors wish to thank the many people who contributed to the Electronics Leadership Project and this report.
Jane McGuire, International Cooperative for Environmental Leadership, and David Isaacs, Electronic Industries Alliance, provided close coordination with project partner organizations. Stephen Andersen of the Atmospheric Pollution Prevention Division at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency offered both vision and practical advice.
We particularly appreciate the contributions of the following people to the company technology profiles: Michelle Blazek, AT&T; Glenn Impal, Canon; Lee Tischler, Honeywell; Edan Dionne, IBM; Steve Brown, Steve Harper, Jim Harrison, and Tim Mohin, Intel; Donna Timmons, Kodak; Stephen Evanoff and Denyse Lefever, Lockheed Martin; Peter Salavantis, Mitsubishi Electric America; Anna-Maria Schneider, Mitsubishi Motors America; Richard Guimond, Motorola; David Conrad, Nortel; Mark Sharp, Panasonic; Frank Marella, Sharp; Liz Moyer and Gail Chandler, Texas Instruments; and Judith Bayer, United Technologies. Others who helped in providing information or reviewing the manuscript include Jay Baker and Peter Sinkunus, Ford; Ravi Kuchibhotla, IBM; Sarah Lawson, InfoLibria; Bob Duffin, Motorola; Cynthia Pruett; Andrew Fanara, EPA; and Tom Morehouse, Institute for Defense Analysis.
We thank WRI reviewers Darryl Banks, Michelle Corrigan, Robert Day, Al Hammond, Nancy Kete, Jim McKenzie, Don Reed, and Walt Reid for searching comments. We also thank outside reviewers Stephen Andersen, Ken Geiser, and Steve Seidel for their thoughtful feedback. The report benefitted from the continuing comments of members of the WRI Climate Protection Initiative team. The initial discussion of replacing carbon with electrons and beginning steps toward the report owe much to Daryl Ditz and also to discussions in a WRI working group for a project on clean technology policies for the electronics sector which included Karen Blades, Robert Ferrone, Dan Fiorino, Gary Hawk, Bill Hoffman, Ken Geiser, and Ted Smith.
We thank Kevin Parker for preparing proposals and reports; Donna Wise, Carol Rosen and Hyacinth Billings for shepherding the report through production and release; and Sridevi Nanjundaram and Margo Glascoe for their help in preparing the manuscript and taking care of countless details under tight deadlines. Errors, of course, remain the responsibility of the authors.
