Attaches materials regarding the Heidelberg Appeal, International Center for a Scientific Ecology (ICSE), and two ICSE conferences. Offers background on ICSE, noting the tobacco industry's "discreet" involvement "through the French NMA." States that the ICSE provides views to international government bodies regarding "what constitutes sound environmental science with regard to particular issues." Comments that involvement with ICSE comes at opportune time given President Clinton's sympathy to the coalition's messages.

Text of Scanned Document

To: Meeting Participants
From: Gerard WIRZ
Date: March 23, 1993
SUBJECT: The Heideiberg Appeal

Attached are some materials regarding an international coaIition of scientists based in Paris.

1.   The "Heidelberg Appeal" and the coalition: This has now been endorsed by over 2,500 scientists, economists and intellectuals, including 70 Nobel Laureates. As an outgrowth, a new institution called the International Center for a Scientific Ecology has been established in Paris to provide views to govemment officials around the world on what constontiutes sound environmental science with regard to particular issues.

2.    ICSE May Conference in Paris: On May 10 the Center for a Scientific Ecology will hold a conference to review the no-threshold and linerality assumptions often used in cancer risk assessment. ETS is on the agenda as one of the case examples, with P.N. Lee making a presentation. (Appeal, provisional conference agenda and subscription form are attached)

3.    ICSE May Conference in Washington DC: Later in May a similar conference will be held in Washington DC. I am working with Tom Borelli to INDIRECTLY support the conference.

BACKGROUND

This coalition has its roots in the asbestos industry, but has become a broad and independent movement in a littlc bit less than a year. We are involved with the coalition through the French NMA, but we are being discreet because some of the coalition members are concerned about a "tobacco connection'.

Our srategy is to continue discreetly supporting the coalition and help it grow in size and credibility. The timing is particularly opportune because of Bill Clinton's sympathy to the messages of the coalition (see attached IHT article).

If you would like more information on how to help support thc movement, pIease contact me or Tom Borelli on the US side.

the "No Threshold" Argument.  Date: Sep 1993
Length: 2 pages

Named Person:
* Delaney
* Ames
* Intl Center For Scientific Ecology

9.   A 1993 International Conference concluded that threshold doses are likely to exist, and condemned the Delaney Amendment as making no scientific sense.

10.  They affirmed that legislative decisions should not be supported by pseudo-scientific arguments or false and non-relevant data.

... The "No Threshold' Argument

Cancer causing substances (carcinogens) exist everywhere - in the food we eat,
the water we drink, the very air we breathe - they are ubiquitous and unavoidable.
But most have only been shown to be carcinogens in high-dose animal
experiments: whether they cause cancer in humans at low doses is speculation.

Because ETS is claimed to contain traces of such substances, and because it is
assumed sometimes that there is no safe level of exposure to carcinogens, it has
been suggested that inhaling someone else's tobacco smoke may cause lung
cancer in nonsmokers (the 'no threshold' argument).

... A Conference on Low Doses Of Carcinogens was held under the auspices of the
International Center for Scientific Ecology (Paris 1993) at which many professors
of science argued against the notion of a no safe dose level.

B.    Expansion through the Supporters of the Heidelberg Appeal
The Heidelberg Appeal, an offshoot of the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, currently has over 2,500 signatures from 96 countries. This appeal is a statement of principles that advocates the use of sound science -- not
emotions or irrational preconceptions-- as a basis for international policy

decisions. The supporters of the Appeal are a loose-knit group. The effort to expand the support of the Appeal is handled through Dr. M. Saloman of International Center for Scienific Ecology (Paris).

      In discussions with a number of our scientific supporters and with Dr. Fred Singer (a member of the Board of the International Center for Scientific Ecology), there is belief that this initial support could be organized into a more "formal movement" internationally.

      The benefits of attempting to use this group as a basis of extending TASSC include:

             Several of TASSC's scientists have signed the Appeal, providing
             the opporunity to approach the supporters with a
             "peer to peer"~ approach, i.e., a "Dear Colleague letter.

             The supporters of the Appeal are truly a divese group of
             scientists, representing a variety of diciplines and countries.
             By working with this group, we might be able to ensure that
             European TASSC is a broad-based group.

             In signing the Appeal, this group expressed support of our basic
             message. We know they will be receptive to the mission and
             goals of TASSC.

     C. Expansion Through Other Existing Groups

We are aware of a number of trade associations that are interested in the use of sound science. Through both the GCI/Grey and the Burson networks, we could identify existing companies, trade associations and organizations that may have an interest in promoting the use of sound science. Some of the associations that might be approached by Grey/GCI

page 6:

...         GCI/Grey's expertise includes work with a number of clients, including the following industries impacted by science and environmental policy decisions: chemical, pharmaceutical, nuclear, waste management and motor industries, power generation, bio tech products, packaging and detergents, paint. They have advised clients on a number of issues, including:

    *   Agricultural manufacturing
    *   Animal testing
    *   Chlorine
    *   Dioxin~
    *   Toxic waste
    *   Ozone/CFC's

Project Brass: A Plan of Action for the ETS Issue  Date: 23 Mar 1993
Length: 47 pages

This document, Project Brass: A Plan of Action for the ETS Issue, written by the Leo Burnett Company for Philip Morris (PM), reveals the potency of the threat the issue of Environmental Tobacco Smoke, or ETS, posed to the tobacco industry:

"For the first time, report provides alleged proof of link between ETS and cancer...Shifts argument from 'personal choice' to 'smoking is unhealthy for everyone'...Arms antis with scientific proof to go to OSHA...Fuels emotional hysteria of antis...Will likely accelerate efforts to prohibit/restrict smoking further...Alters image of smoker [from] 'Bad for him/her,' to 'smoker is bad for all of us.'...Puts further pressure on volume/revenue/profit trends."

The strategies Burnett proposed to fight the ETS issue were: to broaden the ETS issue to encompass total indoor air quality (and thus deflect attention away from the ETS issue), to use "credible third parties" to help the company fight public health measures, and to "create a sense of doubt about the EPA ETS report" [Page 30].

[Scientists in ETS Program]  Date: 20 Oct 1992
Length: 1 page

This internal memorandum from the Tobacco Institute reveals the increasing difficulty the tobacco industry has had in recruiting and retaining credible medical and scientific professionals to publish papers and testify on their behalf to help "maintain the controversy" on secondhand smoke. Scientific and medical professionals who testify publicly on behalf of the tobacco industry risk losing their own credibility. This memo discusses the problem of attrition among medical, statistical, toxicological and epidemiological "experts" that the Tobacco Institute lined up to publish papers and testify at public hearings in its "Scientific Witness Program."

Two months before a pseudo-science conference, this document is deposited in Philip Morris Tobacco Company files. This kind of detail over every element of the planning and conduct of the May 10, 1993 ICSE conference is proof positive that the conference was tobacco supported and operated to generate usable results in science deceptions by tobacco companies. The conference was fraudulent science by craft and design.

Taken together with the AdTI phoney science reports, S. Fred Singer is caught in an inescapable trap of his own making, that he perverted science to advance serial murder corporations to keep killing longer.

Dude,

I admire your passion, but no one wants to read a blog (or comment on one), that's a 100 miles long . *Unsolicited advice* Cut every one of your blogs back to eight paragraphs, each containing no more than seven *normal* size sentences. Bring out more as people comment. Focus *only* on the most important element of what you need to say. Ignore all other distrractions.


Good luck ...
