Item #d90jul70

A coalition of U.S. environmental groups, which will represent over 150 similar organizations world-wide, is gearing up to apply pressure to the participants of the 1990 Economic Summit of Industrial Nations ("G-7"), to be held July 9-11 in Houston, Texas. It is calling for a six-point plan that includes global warming, biodiversity and other topics. In addition, The Other Economic Summit (TOES), an international forum to explore the environmental and social dimensions of world economics that the G-7 summit will not address, is planned in Houston for July 6-8. TOES has attracted growing numbers of participants and attention since its inception in Britain in 1984. "Energy and the Environment" is one of the planned workshops. For information contact TOES, 1442 Harvard St. NW, Washington DC 20009.

"Document Implies U.S. Summit Position Will Oppose Greenhouse Gases Timetable," ibid., pp. 229-230. The internal draft document distributed to high-level federal officials in Washington does, however, support specific action on sustainable development, ocean protection and forest preservation.
