Dear Friends,

This month we shall try to review the results achieved in our efforts during the latter half of the 20th century. As we stated in the title, it is a mixed score-card. We cannot deny the facts that starting from scratch, the world started paying attention to environmental issues, and held several global conferences every year. They came out with ambitious declarations, and at times managed to even agree upon some tough measures like reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by the developed nations, as a part of the Kyoto Protocol and banning of the use of CFCs to prevent further damages to the ozone layer.
