Canales said although the future
of global warming is unknown, it is
an important enough issue for the
White House to focus on it.
Canales joined Dr. Gerald North,
head of the A&M meteorology de
partment; Dr. Thomas J. Crowley,
an A&M professor of oceanography
and deputy director for the Texas
Center for Climate Studies and Dr.
Robert Hariss, an A&M professor of
civil engineering, in a local discus
sion and question period at A&M’s
downlink site.
North, local coordinator for the
conference, said similar presenta
tions and informational fomms were
presented across the nation.
“I agree that the evidence is com
pelling that the globe has been
warming because of man’s influence
and will continue,” North said. “The
president and vice president, along
with leaders around the world, real
ize that something must be done.
Countries are now able to come to
gether to make decisions on global
climate problems.”
The Clinton administration be
lieves citizens do not know enough
about global warming, North said.
Attempts to educate the public will
help pass legislation on climate
Opponents of the conference, in
cluding the Citizens for a Sound Econ
omy, say there is not enough infor
mation about global warming to
consider it a major problem.
Carol Jones, a field director for the
Texas Citizens for a Sound Economy,
said the group is working to inform
the public about environmental is
sues but does not believe there is
enough data on global warming to
implement industrial changes.
“The government should not
spend billions of tax payers’ dollars on
something that hasn’t been proven to
hurt the U.S. economy,” Jones said.
“We are proponents of clean air and
clean water, but there is no conclusive
evidence that we should remedy the
problem (global warming). More re
search should be done to find that
there truly is a problem.”
The Kyoto Conference, sched
uled for December in Kyoto, Japan,
will bring world leaders together to
discuss the problems of global
warming and identify international
