Expanding industrial and agricultural growth are leading to greater emissions of many compounds that are changing the earth's atmosphere and climate. The changes are warming of the climate caused by greenhouse gases, stratospheric ozone modifications caused by chlorofluorocarbons, and tropospheric chemistry modifications caused by carbon monoxide and methane. Consensus among scientific researchers as to the causes, probable magnitudes, and timing of the changes has led to a call for assessment of policy options and impacts. Eight technical papers, presenting the state of the science, were given by non-EPA climate researchers. In addition to typical discussion and dialogue, a panel of policy makers and scientists discussed the impact of the projected global climate change on EPA planning. EPA responses to climate problems were suggested.
