FRIENDS OF THE EARTH LAUNCHES OZONE CAMPAIGN AND NEWSLETTER


Item #d88jul21

At an 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 Cook at that address (202-543-4312).
