It took nature about 300 million yean to deposit and form the fossil fuels-petroleum products aad coal H is taking less than 200 years to burn Item up. Fossil fuels could be considered a bank savings account containing beat energy, mostly deposited by Ibe sim. Over millions of years it was absorbed by bring organisms and 'giant ferns, and eventually changed from pure energy to solid and coal When these irreplaceable igjources are burned, they release (or spend) in only a few concentrated yean all the beat and the biproducls of burning that took nature hundreds of millions of years to produce. Fragile Thing The earth's climate is a fragile thing: it depends on all average surface temperatures remaining the same. If the temperature rises only 10 .degrees the level of the ocean nil] increase by about 12 feel, flooding most of the world's capital cities and crealkg sufficient water weight stresses on geological fault lines that a brief period of earthquakes will completely reshape the con- tinents. If the average temperature drops only six degrees there vrill an umnetiiale ice age, starting with year- long snowfalls that will form new ice packs. Because of inefficient burning of coal and oil prod- ucts about 800 million tons of smoke pours into the at- mosphere every year, and a substantial aicouot of it stays there. The tonnage is increasing as industry ex- The black particles shade the earth, allowing less beat from the sun to reach the surface.

But the complete and unavoidable biprodort of com-' plete burning is carbon dioxide, which makes a perfect one-way heat gate.

Jittery Stock Market Soars NEW YORK (AP) After three ilraight days of six-year lows, the New York slock market register- ed one of its biggest gains at the year in heavy trad- ing Wednesday. The Dow Jones industrial average advanced 13.06 points to 777.39 for Ihe best day since March ZJ, when titt Dow jumped 16.37 poults after the coun- try's biggest banks cut their prime interest rale.

In the next hour the average fell nearly 11 points before it (limed around again. "The market is so damned nervous that it Hows these things out of said analyst M. Lewis of Treves and Co.
