Side 18 - Clearly, the decisive time to evaluate the risks associated with a new technological program is before it is put into effect. The longer such an evaluation is delayed, the less its value to society, for once the process has become embedded in a vast economic or political commitment, it may be nearly impossible to alter. In this task, the scientist's duty is plain, for it is no different from his responsibilities toward the development of all scientific knowledge. The scientists must examine all the...
Side 314 - The presence in the outdoor atmosphere of one or more contaminants or combinations thereof in such quantities and of such duration as may be. or may tend to be. injurious to human, plant, or animal life, or property, or which unreasonably interfere with the comfortable enjoyment of life, or property, or the conduct of business.
Side 318 - CONCLUDING REMARKS LOUIS J. FULLER* County Air Pollution Control Officer Los Angeles, California It is generally agreed that control of air pollution should be the responsibility of the lowest level of government capable of dealing with the problem in its entirety, but it is apparent that no such single level of government exists. Air pollution control is far too complex to be corralled exclusively under Federal, State, regional, or local jurisdiction. It requires the intelligent integration of all...
Side 193 - Permit the establishment by metropolitan areas of an areawide governmental framework through which truly areawide matters can be presented, discussed, decided, and acted upon on an areawide basis, as follows: a. Enact enabling legislation permitting the establishment of a metropolitan area multipurpose district by a majority vote of the voting electorate within a defined metropolitan area, said district to be governed by a metropolitan council to be selected by, and from the membership of, the governing...
Side 410 - ... polluting the air, will move from a State which has rigid enforcement to a State where toleration exists. A telegram from Dr. Blasingame, executive vice president of the AMA. to Surgeon General Luther L. Terry was read at the National Conference on Air Pollution in December 1962. Dr. Blasingame said: "One of our most serious environmental health problems is air pollution. It can and should be controlled. The American Medical Association endorses the concept of local. State, and Federal Joint...
Side 16 - One can also argue that the hazards of modern pollutants are small compared to the dangers associated with other human enterprises — such as automotive traffic. But no estimate of the actual harm that may be done by smog, fallout or chemical residues can obscure the sober realization that the risk was taken before it was fully understood. The importance of these issues to science lies not so much in the technical difficulty of estimating the associated hazards...
Side 415 - One of our most serious environmental health problems is air pollution. It can and should be controlled. The American Medical Association endorses the concept of local. State, and Federal Joint enterprise. Enough has been said. Let's clear the air.
Side 14 - Evidence of its success — the wonderful harvest of technological applications — is all around us: space vehicles, nuclear power, numerous new synthetic chemicals, great improvements in the practice of agriculture, medical advances which have significantly increased the length and usefulness of human life. But we also see some sharp contrasts. At this moment, in some other city, a group may be meeting to consider how to provide air for the first human inhabitants of the moon. Yet, we are meeting...
Side 7 - We arc accustomed to thinking that a disease state is brought about by a single cause — a carryover from a period in public health history when virtually total emphasis was placed on the bacterial or viral agent which had to be present before a communicable disease could be recognized and dealt with.
