FRIENDS OF THE EARTH LAUNCHES OZONE CAMPAIGN AND NEWSLETTER
October, 1987 meeting in Amsterdam, delegates of Friends of the Earth
International made ozone protection a top priority for the coming year and
designated its U.S. affiliate as the lead group to coordinate the campaign and
disseminate information. Friends of the Earth Foundation in the United States is
proceeding with its Stratospheric Defense Initiative (SDI) in three areas:
public education and building a constituency of activists, international
ratification of the ozone treaty and related regulations, and pressure in the
marketplace. The quarterly newsletter Atmosphere first appeared this
spring and will cover scientific, industrial and political developments. A
regular Atmospheric Pressure section will summarize activities of
international Friends of the Earth affiliates to influence industrial CFC users
and producers. Worldwide ratification of the Montreal Protocol is a goal for
1988. The organization sent letters to major U.S. CFC producers in April urging
them to follow Du Pont's lead in rapidly phasing out CFC production.
The newsletter costs $15/year from Friends of the Earth--U.S., 530 7th St.
SE, Washington DC 20003. For further information on the campaign contact Liz
