Item #d89feb3

Concerned with the increasing focus on short-term research needs by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to the detriment of long-term research responsibilities, particularly on global warming and pollution prevention, Administrator Lee M. Thomas established a committee of the EPA Science Advisory Board in 1987 to examine the problem. Prior to his departure from EPA last month, Thomas took action to implement some of its recommendations, published last September. (See REPORTS, this Global Climate Change Digest issue--Feb. 1989.) The Office of Research and Development will identify core research areas fundamental to protection of the environment. A Research Strategy Council, composed of high-level EPA administrators, will identify broad research directions for the agency and advise on the balance between short-term and long-term research needs.
