Item #d93jul63

Research to Protect, Restore, and Manage the Environment, Comm. on Life Sci., Nat. Res. Council, 242 pp., July 1993, $28. Nat. Academy Press, 2101 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington DC 20418 (800-624-6242 or 202-334-3313).

Environmental research in the U.S. is uncoordinated and has a limited effect on national policy. There is no national plan for environmental research, which makes it difficult to work with other nations on global or regional problems. There is inadequate long-term monitoring, and no system for communicating environmental problems to policy makers. Recommends the creation of a National Environmental Council, composed of heads of the environmental agencies and chaired by the Vice President, and an Environmental Assessment Center. The latter would assess and develop policy options for large environmental issues that concern more than one agency. Also recommends "cultural" changes in how government and scientists think about the way environmental research is led, performed and supported.
