Grant Project Summaries contains summaries of 166 projects that were
supported by grants from the Regional Environmental Center (REC) from its
opening in autumn 1990. It includes the summaries of all the grants that
were closed by 31 December 1994. A grant is "closed" once the project is
finished and the REC has transferred all funds to the grantee.
These project summaries serve three essential functions. First, they are
useful for their model value: they provide a model for future projects by
showing the results of past ones. This information will be most relevant to
environmental NGOs who are considering applying for a REC grant. Second,
they provide transparency for the REC's grant expenditures. They clearly
show how much money was granted, to whom it was granted, and for what
purpose. Third, they are informative for anyone interested in the types of
environmental projects being undertaken in Central and Eastern Europe.

Chernobyl victims under the microscope
(c) 1995 Scripps Howard
GENEVA (Nov 20, 1995) -- The biggest-ever conference on the health
consequences of the Chernobyl nuclear accident more than nine years
ago opens Monday in Geneva.
Up to 700 scientists, doctors, health specialists and policy-makers
are expected to attend the four-day World Health Organization
meeting, intended as the most comprehensive review so far of evidence
from Chernobyl and other radiological accidents.
Despite extensive research since the April 1986 explosion at the
Chernobyl nuclear complex in Ukraine, opinions on the health effects
still vary. In a new report produced for the conference, the WHO says
the main consequences so far have been a sharp increase in the
incidence of thyroid cancer among children and widespread
"psycho-social" problems due to anxiety and stress.
These in turn, the U.N. agency says, may be associated with large
recorded rises in many diseases that are not themselves related to
radiation, including endocrine diseases, mental disorders and
diseases of the nervous system, sensory organs and digestive and
genito-urinary systems. Congenital abnormalities have been observed
but do not appear to be radiation-induced, the report says.
The accident killed 30 people, hospitalized hundreds and exposed
some 5 million people in Ukraine, Belarus and Russia to high levels
of ionizing radiation. Total radioactivity of the nuclear fallout is
estimated at 200 times the combined level of the two atomic bombs
dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Since the accident, the number of thyroid cancer cases among
children has soared, to 565. In the worst affected area of Belarus,
in the direct path of the radioactive cloud, the incidence of
thyroid cancer is 100 times pre-accident levels.
However, there has been no increase in leukemia or other blood
disorders, in contrast to what happened in Japan after the Hiroshima
and Nagasaki bombs. The WHO says these effects may yet be manifest in
the longer term and continued monitoring is required. Other cancers,
such as gastric and colon cancer, may take up to 30 years to develop
following initial exposure to radiation.
There's also some evidence to indicate mental retardation and
behavioral problems among a small group of children exposed to
radiation in the womb, the WHO notes.
This week's meeting is the first of three big conferences in the
runup to the tenth anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear accident.

Van egy gondom. Gondolom, ti tudjatok a valaszt.
Nyarelon hallottam, levalt az Eszaki sarkrol egy cefet nagy (Gronland)
jegtabla, uszik lefele, es olvad.
Ez gondolom kacsa.
De azert jobb megbizonyosodni rola, szakertoktol.
Tudosok szerint, (nem hivatalosan) tulmelegedunk 10-20 ev mulva.
Nem szeretek remhireket hellgatni, es ezek igen rossz erzeseket
Tenyleg ennyire sz**ban vagyunk?
Valaszokert cserebe lehet kerni idojarast.
Ki mit szeret, megkapja (az evszak keretein belul).
