I AM dismayed that there has been so little concern for the possible effects of an American air strike against Iraq on the global environment.

In the devastation caused by burning oil wells during the Gulf War, not only was a beautiful and unique wilderness area destroyed, but coral reefs and fisheries were damaged, and bird migration was impeded on a vast scale. Much damage is said to be irretrievable.
