Bad Climate

Mark Hertsgaard copyright 2005 (used by permission of Agence Global)- The July 6-8 summit meeting of the Group of Eight industrial nations comes as humanity is drifting toward unparalleled catastrophe. Climate change, a prime focus of the summit, is on track to kill millions of people in the twenty-first century. The victims will die not in the sudden bang of radioactive explosions but in the gradual whimper of environmental collapse as soaring temperatures and rising seas submerge cities, parch farmlands, crash ecosystems and spread hunger, disease and chaos worldwide.

Cancer: The Price of Progress

PEJ News
- F.H. Knelman, Ph.D.: The above is the title of a book I began writing some fifty years ago. My thesis was that the majority of cancers had environmental causes. These were mostly exposure to carcinogens in the workplace and in the general environment, the latter by far the waste products of industrial operations. According to the World Health Organization, some 80% of all cancer is environmentally-induced and is therefore preventable.

Polluting the English Language to Justify Slaughter

6/14/2005

Commentary by Paul Watson, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

For years I have been annoyed at some of the terminology used in conservation and environmental circles. I think we should consciously try to think about changing the words we use. We need to put an end to the utilitarian, consumeristic jargon that is employed to justify ecological exploitation and the infliction of cruelty on nonhuman species.

Let’s start with the Canadian seal hunt. This is not really a hunt when you think about it. No one is tracking, stalking, or pursuing seals. The sealers merely walk through a nursery of defenseless seal pups and whack them on the head. The little fellas can’t escape, they can’t swim, and they can’t defend themselves. Let’s call it what it is – a slaughter or a massacre. I like to call it the Canadian National Obscenity.

Jetting: rapid water provision for Darfur refugees
Source
: BushProof, http://www.bushproof.com/jetting.html

In large parts of Darfur and nearby Chad it is possible to very quickly install new water points using water jetting as a drilling method. This is the conclusion of field trials recently carried out by Medair. This simple, low-cost technique allows the rapid provision of clean drinking water to tens of thousands of internally displaced people (IDPs).

This Week in Trees: 20 Items from: BC, WA, OR, CA, Indiana, Australia , Brazil

by "Dirt"

======= British Columbia, Canada

1) We start in British Columbia, Canada where a giant convention of forest destroyers was wildly rejected by citizen and endangered species costumes. “Over 600 senior forest and paper industry executives from 27 countries are focused on challenges for the industry in the period to 2015.” But: It is ironic that more than 20,000 acres across Canada, an area almost the size of Vancouver, will be logged during this three day forest summit on sustainability,” said Tzeporah Berman, ForestEthics’s program director. “This summit is not about creating real change - it’s a forum for the same empty talk we’ve been hearing for years.” http://www.ensnewswire.com/ens/jun2005/2005-06-03-02.asp and “Kelli Gallagher is arrested by police Wednesday after she rushed the stage at the Vision 2015 PricewaterhouseCoopers annual forestry conference. As police pulled her away from podium, the podium was pulled over and staff rushed to put it back up.” Also “the tripod blocked traffic and forced police officers to divert delegate vehicles to various locations. After the tripod was taken down the protestors marched to the hotel and sent the delegates a very clear message, your vision is a "clearcut way to extinction. Stop logging now!!"

Coast Rain Forest PhotoOlympia Ecology Center's Newsletter: THIS WEEK IN TREES

By "Dirt"

This week in the Pacific Northwest and beyond:

In Eastern Washington a the Fisher Fire caused much ecological
improvement to fire suppressed stands amid rare patches of old growth
forests. These last ancient forests don't burn to ashes like young
human-made plantation forest so they don't fit into what
Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest Service considers healthy. So
lawsuits have been filed and loggers are logging as fast as possible to
ensure the courts have no control over the hauling of 4,000 log truck of
fire adapted forests. It's called an "Economic Emergency."

Unanswered Questions about BC's Golden Eagle Slaughter Eagle in flight

May 27, 2005     by Ingmar Lee 

Last year, when it became known that people involved with the Vancouver Island marmot recovery project had been bait-killing Golden eagles, Dr. Andrew "Mr. Marmot" Bryant, immediately went on record expressing shock and outrage that this had happened without his knowledge. Ostensibly, Doug Janz, then chair of the Marmot Recovery Team had sneaked around behind his back and destroyed a number of these magnificent birds, all in the name of 'protecting' Vancouver Island's marmots. Later Janz took the fall for the killings, which made front page headlines across Canada and shocked and horrified people around the world.
