The United States blocked a far-reaching environmental protection provision to the Antarctica Treaty, forcing postponement of a signing ceremony scheduled in Madrid today, the 30th anniversary of the treaty's enactment. Chief U.S. delegate Curtis Bohlen said "we simply needed more time" to study a proposed 55-year ban on mining in Antarctica.
