Awards to Conference Secretariat - 25 August 1988

From Christmas 1988 Zephyr:  Declaring that so many AES employees had made outstanding contributions to this summer's World Conference on the Changing Atmosphere that he could only name individuals "symbolically'', ADMA Howard Ferguson handed out both group and individual awards to members of the loosely defined Conference Secretariat at an AES Downsview ceremony held August 25, 1988. The two persons singled out for Personal Achievement Awards were Nicole Sauvé and Henry Hengeveld. As the picture shows they were joined by the group recipients.  Addressing a large audience of well wishers in the Auditorium, Mr. Ferguson also read out a list of other employees who had helped give the Conference its huge aura of success, as part of a remarkable team effort.

Hans Martin - "Quotability Award"

Following the Changing Atmosphere Conference, Dr. Hans Martin, senior advisor to the Federal Long Range Transport of Pollutants Office (LLO) scored very high on the quotability scale in 1988.

First, he got front page treatment in the Globe and Mail's Quote of the Day last spring when he said, "We have been conquering nature for 200 years.  Now we have to realize that we are beating it to death.  The economic system is dangerously out of date when dealing with the environment".
Then, on December 30, when this same newspaper published its selection of annual quotations, Dr. Martin's quote headed the list.  This certainly makes the statement of AES's number one acid rain expert the quote of the Year.
