light of the National Research Council's conclusion that the human interactions science priority is "the most critically under-funded in the fiscal 1991 budget for the USGCRP" (National Research Council, 1990c:95), an increase of this magnitude over a short time period seems fully justified. In our view, support for appropriate parts of the research program outlined here could come from an emerging Mitigation and Adaptation Research Strategies program as well as from the Global Change Research Program.
