ENVIRONMENT AT THE ECONOMIC SUMMIT
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,
