CFCs cool globe

November 1991
New Scientist;11/9/91, Vol. 132 Issue 1794, p19
Discloses the findings of a United Nations panel of scientists released in September 1991 that chlourofluorocarbons (CFC) may contribute to the cooling of the atmosphere, instead of causing global warming as has been assumed. Description of how CFC act on the atmosphere; Finding's reinforcement of the importance of controlling carbon dioxide emissions to curb the greenhouse effect.
