Abstract

Attaches materials regarding the Heidelberg Appeal, International Center for a Scientific Ecology (ICSE), and two ICSE conferences. Offers background on ICSE, noting the tobacco industry's "discreet" involvement "through the French NMA." States that the ICSE provides views to international government bodies regarding "what constitutes sound environmental science with regard to particular issues." Comments that involvement with ICSE comes at opportune time given President Clinton's sympathy to the coalition's messages.
