Climate change symposium addresses greenhouse gas, ozone, and energy production

August 25, 2003

NEW YORK -- Climate science leaders will address greenhouse gas measurements, atmospheric cycles involving ozone, and technology options for energy production in a "greenhouse constrained" world at a presidential symposium at the 226th national meeting of the American Chemical Society. During this special symposium on global climate change, speakers will focus on the technological and policy aspects of climate change paying special attention to the challenges to developing countries. Other topics will include climate science modeling and chemical cycles of aerosols and oxidizing radicals. ACS is the world's largest scientific society.
