PHILIIP MORRIS IINCORPORiATED INTER-OFFICE'CORRES'PONDENCE 120 PARK AVE. NEW YORK NY 100'17' TO': Distribution DATE: March 9; 1994 FROMt Matthew N. W,inqkiir Jan Goodheart _';; Attached is a recent U.S'& policy paper that helps put some of the flaws of ETS science into a, broader context. On March 3, 1994, the George C. Marshall Institute released a report on controversial topics in science and environmental regulation. The major themes of the report are that: Many of today's environmentalsegulations are not consistent with the underlying science; Some scientists intentionally overstate the science in order to attractt media and public attention. While the report is primarily focused on the topic of global warming and ozone layer depletion, it briefly reviews ten other issues on which the publicc has been misled. ETS is mentioned as one of the examples in the report (p.7). What makes this report particularly significant is that it is authored by Dr. Frederick Seitz, one of the most distinguished scientists in the UIS. Dr. Seitz is: past President of the National Academy of Sciences and President Emeritus of Rockefeller University. He is one of the most highly recognized scientists too challenge the prevailing view on ETS+ Diatribution; EEC : Mr. D. Eushong, Asia: Mr. D. Harris Mr. D. Greenberg, Mr. C. Goddard Ms. H.
