1) International Air Pollution:
This weekend I'm in Pensacola, Florida for the Project Awareness Conference about unusual phenomena and new millennial trends. One subject many of us will be talking about is global environmental deterioration. And the March 15th, 1999 Geophysical Research Letters, has published the first study to confirm that the air people are breathing in Washington State probably contains chemical pollution from Chinese factories. Professor Dan Jaffe at the University of Washington and his colleagues concluded that 22% of the carbon monoxide arriving at Cheeka Peak in Washington had originated in East Asia. The polluted air took about six days to travel from Asia to North America. Professor Jaffe was philosophical about the fact that our planet seems to get smaller as problems spill from country to country: "We make pollution, too. Everybody's pollution goes somewhere else."
