How mayor's global view plays in land of the GOP

RVINE, Calif. - The local newspaper here, the Irvine World News, was graced with its global title by executives of Irvine Co. who wanted to communicate the "new world of

Irvine" to Southern Californians settling this Orange County frontier in 1972. 

It does not print international news. 

But the paper couldn't be better named from the perspective of Larry Agran, this city's mayor. The 44-year-old, Harvard-educated chief executive has set a global agenda for this Southern California town of 100,000 people.

Frustrated by global Ozone Fight, California City Offers Own Plan

IRVINE, Calif., July 18 -The ranks of American states, counties and cities impatient with the pace of international efforts to protect the earth's ozone layer are swelling.  The latest action comes from conservative Orange County, where the City Council of Irvine voted 4 to 1 tonight to approve what Is believed to be the most far-reaching measure yet to control ozone-depleting chemicals. 

The Irvine ordinance will prohibit the use of nearly will chlorofluorocarbons, or CFC's, and related compounds In any industrial process, except in the manufacture of drugs and medical devices and when military specifications call for them. It will ban the sale and use of styrofoam food packaging, ifthe chemical compounds were used in their manufacture, and it will prohibit the use of building insulation containing the compounds.

CID Report (10)

Center for Innovative Diplomacy Report - July/August/September 1985 - Special Issue

BETWEEN AUGUST 4TH AND lOTH, THE CITIES OF HIROSHIMA ANDNagasaki sponsored the First World Conference of Mayors for Peacethrough Inter-City Solidarity. CID's President, Michael Shuman, attendedthe conference as a representative of the mayor of Palo Alto. WhenShuman returned, he prepared this highly personal chronicle of what theconference was like-what the mayors experienced, what they discussed, and how CID managed to nudge the conference to "institutionalize" itself. The report is long, involved, and sometimes evenemotionally wrenching, but we think it's well worth your reading time.
