NEWS NOTES


Item #d91oct66

UARS Launched: The Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, the largest U.S. satellite ever built for studying the Earth, was successfully launched from the space shuttle Discovery in September 1991. A variety of instruments aboard will observe chemical and meteorological conditions in the upper atmosphere to increase understanding of how ozone depletion occurs. See Sci. News, p. 181, Sep. 21; Chem. Eng. News, p. 5, Sep. 9; New Scientist, p. 27, Sep. 14.


Item #d91oct67

EPA CFC Rule: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has formally proposed regulations to phase out the production of ozone-depleting chemicals by the year 2000, consistent with the Montreal Protocol and the Clean Air Act. Contact David Lee, Global Change Div. (ANR-445), U.S. EPA, Washington DC 20460 (202-260-1497).


Item #d91oct68

"Academy Panel Split on Greenhouse Adaptation," L. Roberts, Science, p. 1206, Sep. 13, 1991. Two contributors to a National Academy of Sciences study of the policy implications of global warming, Jane Lubchenko and Jessica Mathews, are dissenting vigorously from the conclusions of the adaptation panel report (Global Climate Change Digest, Reports/Of General Interest, Sep. 1991). They think the panel erred in trying to divorce ecological from economic effects.
