Item #d90jan93

President George Bush announced that the United States will host a ministerial-level conference to discuss a framework convention on global climate change in fall 1990 or early 1991. The announcement, made during the President's Malta summit meeting with Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev last month, is considered a policy shift by most, although White House science advisor Allen Bromley maintains it is consistent with the Administration's current program on global warming. Bush also offered to convene an international meeting of environmental and economic officials in Washington this spring. (See Greenhouse Effect Rep., p. 99, Dec. 1989; Environ. Rptr. Curr. Devel., p. 1379, Dec. 8; New York Times, p. A15, Dec. 6.) Other developments in the U.S. position on global climate change are discussed in the following:

"Global Warming Becomes Hot Issue for Bromley," M. Sun, Science, p. 569, Nov. 3, 1989. The presidential science advisor was grilled in a hearing by Senators angry over reports that he had opposed sending a U.S. delegation to a meeting in the Netherlands. See also Environ. Rptr. Curr. Devel., pp. 1332-1333, Nov. 24.

"Federal Agencies Begin to Consider Global Warming in Impact Statements," Environ. Rptr. Curr. Devel., p. 1271, Nov. 10, 1989. The Council on Environmental Quality is preparing to make this a requirement under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), but it is already being done by at least one EPA regional office and other agencies including the Forest Service and the Army Corps of Engineers.
