Energy Resources and Global Development Supplemental Material

The following documents provide a general overview of global energy resources and consumption, and are supplemental material to the article Energy Resources and Global Development by Jeffrey Chow, Raymond J. Kopp, and Paul R. Portney (Science 302, 1528-1531, 2003.

The supplemental material below is circulated by the authors for purposes of information and discussion. It has not undergone formal peer review or editorial treatment. (Please direct any questions to Jeffrey Chow at chow@rff.org.)
