Howard Berman, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, I move to suspend the rules and agree to the concurrent resolution (H. Con. Res. 51) recognizing the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Antarctic Treaty, as amended."
Removal Of Injunction Of Secrecy—Treaty Document No. 111-2 April 2, 2009
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Annex VI to the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty (Treaty Document No. 111-2)."
Celebrating The Anniversaries Of The International Polar Years And International Geophysical Year October 11, 2004
John McCain, R-AZ
"Modeled after IPY, IGY was first launched in 1957-1958 and also has been a model for international science activities. Accomplishments from past IGY activities include the initiation of the global space age and exploration of the upper atmosphere through the launching of Sputnik and Vanguard, the world’s first satellites. IGY led to the establishment of more research stations in the Antarctic, and to the ratification of the Antarctic Treaty in 1961, which promoted peaceful international collaboration and scientific exploration in the Antarctic. It is my hope that the same research activities will occur in the Arctic region."
Celebrating 50Th Anniversary Of International Geophysical Year (Igy) And Supporting An International Geophysical Year-2 (Igy-2) In 2007-08 March 24, 2004
Vernon Ehlers, R-MI
"As often happens with scientific research, the more we learn, the more questions we develop. Much of the first IGY research focused on Antarctica, setting aside an entire continent for cooperative scientific research. In 1959, the Antarctic Treaty formalized this arrangement by designating Antarctica for scientific investigation “as applied during the International Geophysical Year.” I am pleased that this resolution continues that spirit of scientific discovery by directing the National Science Foundation and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to pursue plans for a second International Geophysical Year in 2007-08. A second IGY will inspire the next generation of earth scientists to work collaboratively and across international borders to study the most pressing Earth science questions."
