NEWS NOTES


Item #d96jan88

"Climate Critics Claim Access Blocked to Unpublished Data," C. Macilwain, Nature, p. 329, Nov. 23, 1995. Greenhouse skeptic Patrick Michaels of the University of Virginia told a congressional hearing that he has been denied access to British climate model data used for the IPCC assessment. Democrats and environmentalists claim this and similar hearings are intended to give excessive prominence to the views of a noisy handful of "dissident" scientists.


Item #d96jan89

"Russians Propose Technological [Ozone] Fix," Global Environ. Change Rep., p. 6, Dec. 22, 1995. A consortium of some 20 defense and research institutes in Russia has proposed launching 30-50 satellites that would use lasers to beam infrared radiation at the 25-30 km level of the atmosphere to offset ozone destruction by CFCs. The estimated cost is $100 billion over ten years. The lower house of the Russian Parliament has issued a declaration supporting research into such approaches.


Item #d96jan90

"Ocean Study to Start After Big Changes and a Long Delay," W.J. Broad, The New York Times, p. C4, Nov. 7, 1995. The Acoustic Thermometry of Ocean Climate experiment, intended to measure the temperature of the oceans and detect global warming, is finally proceeding after concessions by scientists to those concerned about possible harm to whales and other marine mammals.
