Global Climate Change Digest

A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d93oct77

The following two articles have been mentioned in Global Climate Change Digest news sections (p. 96, June; p. 112, July-Aug.); both are extensive discussions of how scientists are facing public criticism of their latest theories and motives relating to stratospheric ozone depletion:

"The Ozone Backlash," G. Taubes, Science, pp. 1580-1583, June 11, 1993. (Extensive subsequent correspondence on this article between F. Singer and S. Rowland appeared in the Aug. 27 issue, pp. 1101-1103.)

"Ozone Depletion's Recurring Surprises Challenge Atmospheric Scientists," P.S. Zurer, Chem. Eng. News, pp. 8-18, May 24, 1993.

Item #d93oct78

"Ozone: Scam or Crisis?" P. Poore, B. O'Donnell, Garbage, 24-29, Sep.-Oct. 1993. Journalists review and synthesize the scientific evidence on human-induced stratospheric ozone depletion, coming out in the middle of extreme views on the issue.

Item #d93oct79

"Ozone Politics," Omni, 34-42, 91, June 1993.

Author J.P. Hogan argues there is no evidence that manmade compounds are destroying the ozone layer, and that publicly-funded institutions are using faulty science to sell the public on the need to eliminate CFCs. Science fiction writer F. Pohl gives a point-by-point rebuttal.
