THE "OZONE BACKLASH"
The following two
articles have been mentioned in Global Climate Change Digest news
sections (p. 96, June; p. 112, July-Aug.); both are extensive discussions of how
scientists are facing public criticism of their latest theories and motives
relating to stratospheric ozone depletion:
"The Ozone Backlash," G. Taubes, Science, pp. 1580-1583,
June 11, 1993. (Extensive subsequent correspondence on this article between F.
Singer and S. Rowland appeared in the Aug. 27 issue, pp. 1101-1103.)
"Ozone Depletion's Recurring Surprises Challenge Atmospheric
Scientists," P.S. Zurer, Chem. Eng. News, pp. 8-18, May 24, 1993.
"Ozone: Scam or
Crisis?" P. Poore, B. O'Donnell, Garbage, 24-29, Sep.-Oct. 1993.
Journalists review and synthesize the scientific evidence on human-induced
stratospheric ozone depletion, coming out in the middle of extreme views on the
Omni, 34-42, 91, June 1993.
Author J.P. Hogan argues there is no evidence that manmade compounds are
destroying the ozone layer, and that publicly-funded institutions are using
faulty science to sell the public on the need to eliminate CFCs. Science fiction
writer F. Pohl gives a point-by-point rebuttal.
