After reading your article (April 1) I was reminded of Thoreau's famous remark: "If a man walk in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer; but if he spends his whole day as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is esteemed an industrious and enterprising citizen" ("Life Without Principle"). It is always a questionable propaganda ploy to pit the interests of human beings against those of nature, as if the two were not identical!

That material doesn't exist yet, but, with a 5-year, $2-million Army grant, scientists at UC San Diego have launched a search for new materials that would be stronger, tougher and more heat resistant than ones now available, university officials announced Monday.

Ozone from Asia is wafting across the Pacific on springtime winds and boosting the amount of the smog-producing chemical found in the skies above the western United States, researchers said in a study released Wednesday. The new study, published in the journal Nature, explores a phenomenon that has puzzled scientists in the past decade: Ground-level ozone has dropped in cities thanks to tighter pollution controls; but it has risen in rural areas in the western U.S., where there is little industry or automobile traffic.
