    Bonded Wineries Lists 1936-1988
    US Government (US Government, 1936)
    This collection consists of state-by-state lists of bonded wineries, bonded wine storerooms, bonded public storerooms, bonded field warehouses, and bonded wine cellars authorized to operate in the United States. The date range for the collection is approximately 1936 through 1988. The collection is not complete. These are public domain documents produced by the US Government and published by various departments and agencies over the years. These documents were requested from the Alcohol & Tobacco Tax & Trade Bureau (TTB) through a FOIA request and subsequently digitized from microfiche in 2012 by Cornell’s Frank A. Lee Library. Special thanks goes to St. Helena Public Library, Saint Helena CA for lending us their copy of the 1988 list which was scanned and included in this collection.

    Peaking of Oil Production: Impacts, Mitigation, & Risk Management
    Hirsch, Robert L.; Bezdek, Roget; Wendling, Robert (2005-04-07T18:11:59Z)
    The peaking of world oil production presents the U.S. and the world with an unprecedented risk management problem. As peaking is approached, liquid fuel prices and price volatility will increase dramatically, and, without timely mitigation, the economic, social, and political costs will be unprecedented. Viable mitigation options exist on both the supply and demand sides, but to have substantial impact, they must be initiated more than a decade in advance of peaking. This U.S. Department of Energy funded paper reports the problem of the peaking of world conventional oil production is unlike any yet faced by modern industrial society. The challenges and uncertainties need to be much better understood. Technologies exist to mitigate the problem. Timely, aggressive risk management will be essential.
