FROM VOLUME 1, NUMBER 1, JULY 1988
Welcome to the first issue of the Global Climate Change Digest. The
format of this publication is similar to that developed for the Acid
Precipitation Digest, now in its sixth year of publication. Our success in
providing current information from around the globe depends in part on our
readers. An international editorial board is being established with the sole
responsibility of helping to provide relevant material for the Digest,
but we welcome appropriate contributions from others as well. We will consider
timely calendar items, reports, books and proceedings, journal publications and
potential news material. A citation, good summary, and ordering information is
sufficient for most documents but a complete copy is preferable. Send
submissions to Dr. R.W. Pratt, R.D. 1 - Box 185, Valley Falls NY 12185 (Tel.
518-753-7838). Material may also be sent by telefax to the Rochester, New York,
office of the Center for Environmental Information (716-325-5131; any group 2 or
3 machine), or to the Amsterdam office of Elsevier (011-31-020-5862-726; Attn.:
Because this publication is new but the topic is not, the first several
issues will include some material that is less current than we will normally
include, particularly major documents, or those not likely to be familiar to our
readers. Retrospective news items (such as the first two in this issue) will
provide updates on selected topics, and retrospective sections will appear in
the other departments soon.
The exchange of information has made our world seem smaller, and has enabled
humans to do things that may be changing our physical world in fundamental ways.
But it is essential to continue the exchange as we enter whatever future awaits
us. We hope this publication helps.
