seen as a key to a peaceful settlement Both Secretary of State Warren Christo pher and Defense Secretary Les Aspin said the United Nations bounty for Ai dids capture still stands despite Aidids call Saturday for a ceasefire in Mo gadishu But Clinton administration officials also said the United States wants to nurture a political settlement for Somalias woes an agreement that most experts believe

an acre when soil depletion and erosion are taken into consideration it said And a cup of rice may sell for a few cents in the United States India the Philippines and Chile but its real cost could be much higher because of the environ mental damage fanners inflict in producting it according to case studies in the four countries In the four countries studied practices that caused the great est environmental harm get more incentive from the gov ernment while those that get the least money do the least dam Faeth said In India the study found that electrical subsidies encourage excessive use
