Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 22, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta WtdtiMdiy, January 22, 1975 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 45 Liddy back in jail C. Gordon Liddy, the man who led the Watergate burglars and members of the Nixon re-election committee, leaves U.S. District Court in Washington after a judge ordered him to resume a jail term Climate changes forecast New York Times Service WASHINGTON Changes in the earth's climate are inevitable and mankind must learn to predict these variations to avoid potential catastrophe, a group of prominent scientists has concluded after a two year study. "A far greater understanding of these changes is required than we now the group report said. "It is, moreover, important that this knowledge be acquired as soon as possible." The report said global use of land for agriculture, water for irrigation and drinking and air and watersheds for waste disposal was approaching the limit. "A change of climate, even if sustained only for a few years' time, could seriously disrupt this use pattern and have far reaching the report said. The scientists cited recent trends as well as evidence from history and the span of geologic time to suggest that changes in the climate are already tak- ing place and that conceivably major changes could occur soon. The study is to be made public short-. ly by the National Academy of Scien- ces. It buttresses similar conclusions in several other reports .published within roughly the past year. The most drastic potential change considered in the new report is an abrupt end to the present interglacial period of relative warmth that has governed the planet's climate for the past Recent studies have produced strong evidence that such warm periods tend to last to years and that they sometimes end abruptly. The report also noted that periods of benign climate comparable to the pre- sent one are unusual and have existed for only about 8 per cent of the last 000 years. "There seems little doubt that the present period of unusual warmth will eventually give way to a time of colder climate, but there is no consensus with regard to either the magnitude or rapidity of the the panel said. "The onset of this climatic decline could be several thousand years in the it said, "although there is a definite probability that a serious worldwide cooling could befall the earth within the next hundred years." Even in the absence of such drastic change, human welfare could be profoundly affected by minor variations, the panel said, because food production is so closely geared to pre- sent climate conditions. The scientists noted that the average surface temperature in the northern hemisphere increased steadily from the 1880's until the 1900's, but has dropped steadily since. It is now halfway back to the level of the late 19th century. Canada is sixth on prison list ut OIA iu ycai a.
