Sample sentence:
Perhaps the best solution to our growing energy challenges comes in a bulletin from the Union of Concerned Scientists: "Our society's future success cannot hinge on one single solution.

Context:
Although renewable energies are not yet economically competitive with fossil fuels, their price becomes more attractive when compared with the health and environmental costs associated with burning coal and oil. Perhaps the best solution to our growing energy challenges comes in a bulletin from the Union of Concerned Scientists: "Our society's future success cannot hinge on one single solution. The answer instead must come from a family of diverse energy technologies that share a unified purpose they do not deplete our natural resources or destroy our environment." Despite the difficulties it is important to remember that an energy crisis is approaching at supersonic speeds and will soon be upon us.

Question:
Is “from the Union of Concerned Scientists“ a modifier of “bulletin” or an adverbial?
In other words, which of the following analysis is better:
[1] ... comes, in a bulletin, from...
[2] ... comes in (a bulletin from...)

Thanks if you would help : )
