Global climate change is a serious problem calling for immediate national action. Guided by sound economic principles, we are united in the following policy recommendations. A carbon tax offers the most cost-effective lever to reduce carbon emissions at the scale and speed that is necessary. By correcting a well-known market failure, a carbon tax will send a powerful price signal that harnesses the invisible hand of the marketplace to steer economic actors towards a low-carbon future. A carbon tax should increase every year until emissions reductions goals are met and be revenue neutral to avoid debates over the size of government.

Bruce M. Alberts is president of the National Academy of Sciences. The National Academy of Engineering was established in , under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences, as a parallel organization of outstanding engineers. It is autonomous in its administration and in the selection of its members, sharing with the National Academy of Sciences the responsibility for advising the federal government.
The National Academy of Engineering also sponsors engineering programs aimed at meeting national needs, encourages education and research, and recognizes the superior achievements of engineers. William A. Wulf is president of the National Academy of Engineering. The Institute of Medicine was established in by the National Academy of Sciences to secure the services of eminent members of appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public.
The Institute acts under the responsibility given to the National Academy of Sciences by its congressional charter to be an adviser to the federal government and, upon its own initiative, to identify issues of medical care, research, and education. Kenneth I. Shine is president of the Institute of Medicine. Functioning in accordance with general policies determined by the Academy, the Council has become the principal operating agency of both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in providing services to the government, the public, and the scientific and engineering communities.
The Council is administered jointly by both Academies and the Institute of Medicine. Alberts and Dr. Wulf are chairman and vice chairman, respectively, of the National Research Council. Consumer Product Safety Commission CPSC is considering a possible flammability standard for upholstered furniture to reduce the incidence of death, injury, and properly loss from fires started by small open flames of matches, cigarette lighters, and other sources of ignition of upholstered furniture in U.
The most likely method of achieving this standard is to treat furniture upholstery with flame-retardant FR chemicals. However, concern has been expressed that potential health risks have been inadequately studied for many of the FR chemicals likely to be used. Some of them have been shown to cause a range of toxicity, including cancer, neurological, reproductive, and developmental effects. This report evaluates toxicological, epidemiological, and exposure data on the 16 specified FR chemicals, and characterizes risks to human health from exposure to furniture upholstery treated with such chemicals.
It is hoped that the findings of the report will be useful to CPSC and Congress in making decisions regarding the safe use of FR chemicals in upholstered furniture fabric. The purpose of this independent review is to provide candid and critical comments that will assist the NRC in making the published report as sound as possible and to ensure that the report meets institutional standards for objectivity, evidence, and responsiveness to the study charge.
The review comments and draft manuscript remain confidential to protect the integrity of the deliberative process. The individuals listed above have provided many constructive comments and suggestions. It must be emphasized, however, that responsibility for the final content of this report rests entirely with the authoring committee and the NRC. Borax Incorporated for providing data on FR chemicals. The subcommittee also thanks the staff of the sponsor of this study, the U. These staff members merit special recognition for their thoughtful contributions and extraordinary efforts in producing the report, and for the many extra hours they worked to complete the report.
Finally, we would like to express our thanks and admiration to the members of the subcommittee for their dedicated efforts throughout the development of this report.
Donald E. Chair, Committee on Toxicology. Ignition of upholstered furniture by small open flames from matches, cigarette lighters, and candles is one of the leading causes of residential-fire deaths in the United States. On average, each year since , about 90 deaths primarily of children , injuries, and property losses amounting to 50 million dollars have resulted from fires caused by the ignition of upholstered furniture by small open flames. Certain commercial seating products such as aircraft and bus seats are subject to flammability standards and sometimes incorporate FR-treated upholstery cover materials, but there is no federal-government requirement for residential upholstered furniture, and it is generally not treated with FR chemicals.
It is estimated that less than 0. Consumer Product Safety Commission CPSC as an independent federal regulatory agency whose mission is to protect the public from unreasonable risks of injury and death associated with consumer products. In , the National Association of State Fire Marshals petitioned CPSC to issue a performance-based flammability standard for upholstered furniture to reduce the risk of residential fires.
The Commission granted that portion of the petition relating to small open flame ignition risks. In response to concerns regarding the safety of FR chemicals, Congress, in the fiscal year appropriations report for CPSC, requested that the National Research Council conduct an independent study of the health risks to consumers posed by exposure to FR chemicals that are likely to be used in residential upholstered furniture to meet a CPSC standard.
Subcommittee members were chosen for their recognized expertise in toxicology, pharmacology, epidemiology, chemistry, exposure assessment, risk assessment, and biostatistics.
Toxicological Risks of Selected Flame-Retardant Chemicals is organized into 18 chapters and two appendices. Chapter 2 describes the risk assessment process used by the subcommittee in determining the risk associated with potential exposure to the various FR chemicals. Chapter 3 describes the method the subcommittee used to measure and estimate the intensity, frequency, extent, and duration of human exposure to FR chemicals. Chapters provide the subcommittee's review and assessment of health risks posed by exposure to each of the 16 FR chemicals.

Сьюзан завороженно смотрела на захватывающую дух технику. Она смутно помнила, что для создания этого центра из земли пришлось извлечь 250 метрических тонн породы. Командный центр главного банка данных располагался на глубине шестидесяти с лишним метров от земной поверхности, что обеспечивало его неуязвимость даже в случае падения вакуумной или водородной бомбы. На высокой рабочей платформе-подиуме в центре комнаты возвышался Джабба, как король, отдающий распоряжения своим подданным. На экране за его спиной светилось сообщение, уже хорошо знакомое Сьюзан.
Они сцепились. Перила были невысокими. Как это странно, подумал Стратмор, что насчет вируса Чатрукьян был прав с самого начала. Его падение пронзило Стратмора холодным ужасом - отчаянный крик и потом тишина. Но более страшным стало то, что он увидел в следующее мгновение. Скрытые тенью, на него смотрели глаза Грега Хейла, глаза, полные ужаса. Тогда Стратмор понял, что Грег Хейл должен умереть.

Вот. На ступенях прямо перед Халохотом сверкнул какой-то металлический предмет. Он вылетел из-за поворота на уровне лодыжек подобно рапире фехтовальщика.
Тело его сначала оказалось в воздухе, а потом - на жестком полу. Из тени на авенида дель Сид появилась фигура человека. Поправив очки в железной оправе, человек посмотрел вслед удаляющемуся автобусу. Дэвид Беккер исчез, но это ненадолго. Из всех севильских автобусов мистер Беккер выбрал пользующийся дурной славой 27-й маршрут.
- Терпи. Потом закрыл глаза и глубоко вздохнул. Беккер не сразу почувствовал, что его кто-то подталкивает.
Сел. Поднял посверкивающую полуавтоматическую беретту и нацелил ее на дверь, а потом опустил себе на колени.
