Stranica 69 - THE inhabitants of planet Earth are quietly conducting a gigantic environmental experiment. So vast and so sweeping will be the consequences that, were it brought before any responsible council for approval, it would be firmly rejected. Yet it goes on with little interference from any jurisdiction or nation. The experiment in question is the release of CO, and other so-called 'greenhouse gases

Stranica 197 - Dear Mr. Chairman: I am writing in response to your letter of March 25.
Stranica 181 - Convention for Protection of the Ozone Layer, and our participation in domestic and international efforts to address ozone protection issues such as the recently concluded series of workshops sponsored by EPA and the United Nations Environment Programme. As you can imagine, the Alliance's activities as a coalition require the active physical as well as financial participation of our member companies. We have worked to live up to our name and be an. Alliance for responsible CFC Policy. To do so requires...
Stranica 70 - If this reading of the natural record is correct, then we must consider the possibility that the main responses of the system to our provocation of the atmosphere will come in jumps whose timing and magnitude are unpredictable. Coping with this type of change is clearly a far more serious matter than coping with a gradual wanning .
Stranica 177 - Vith the world community under the auspices of the United Nations Environment Programme to consider , establishing a reasonable global limit on the future rate of growth of fully halogenated CFC production capacity.
Stranica 179 - ... significantly to the quality of life of all Americans and to people around the world. The proposed EPA action was based on the theory that CFCs are emitted into the atmosphere and, because of their unique stability, eventually reach the earth's protective ozone layer, where they may deplete the ozone through a complex series of reactions. In the belief that government ought not regulate based on an unproven or unverified theory. Alliance members established some basic goals with regard to the...
Stranica 177 - ... of international competition, and may undermine efforts to obtain an international resolution. * Additional scientific research is essential. The Alliance supports the atmospheric research recommendations contained in the January, 1986 NASA/World Meteorological Organization Science Assessment. * Voluntary conservation in CFC end uses should be continued and expanded where economically and technologically practical. * Regulation of specific uses of CFCs is ineffective and discriminatory. * Responsible...
Stranica 69 - Understanding the operation of the joint hydrosphere - atmosphere - biosphere cryosphere system is every bit as difficult as understanding the factors that determine whether or not cancerous cells will get the upper hand. Because of our lack of basic knowledge, the range of possibility for the greenhouse effects remains large. It is for this reason that the experiment is a dangerous one.
