Published July 1988 through June 1999
FROM VOLUME 5, NUMBER 6, JUNE 1992
"Global Environmental Engineering," R.J. Cicerone (Dept.
Geosci., Univ. California, Irvine CA 92717), S. Elliot, R.P. Turco, Nature,
356(6369), p. 472, Apr. 9, 1992.
Some schemes for fixing environmental problems, such as injection of alkanes
into the Antarctic stratosphere to slow ozone destruction, deserve serious
consideration and a scientific process of evaluation, preferably by
international but nongovernmental bodies of scientists.
Two items from Environment, 34(3), Apr. 1992:
"The Precautionary Principle," 2-5. Correspondence concerning this
guideline for environmental policy, favored by Germany and lately receiving
"Recommendations from the Sigma Xi and ASCEND 21," pp. 5, 40.
Lists key points emerging from these two recent conferences dealing with the
role of science in creating a sustainable future.

(Ctr. Environ. & Hazardous Materials Studies, Virginia Polytechnic Inst.,
Blacksburg VA 24061), ChemTech, 22(2), 90-93, Feb. 1992. The "chemophobia"
of many individuals, reflecting a serious lack of interdisciplinary education,
leads to a disproportionately high concern over chemical toxicity compared to
greater ecosystem threats like climate change.
