On Intimacy

PEJ News - C. L. Cook - Whether how the toaster really works, or the portent of geopolitics for your life, we are, in the "Age of Communication," babes in a wood, our endemic ignorance of human society mirrored perfectly with our general disconnect from the natural world and the other species currently suffering humanity?s ministration.

China Crisis: Threat to the Global Environment


The Independent UK - Michael McCarthy - Wednesday 19 October 2005 - Western politicians queue up to sing its praises. Economists regard it with awe and delight. Other countries are desperate to imitate it. Yet there is another side to China's exploding, double-digit-growth miracle economy - it is turning into one of the greatest environmental threats the earth has ever faced.

Feeding the Flames of Desire

Media Lens - After 4.6 billion years of planetary history, we may become the first species to monitor our own extinction. In impressive detail, humankind is amassing evidence of devastating changes in the atmosphere, oceans, ice cover, land and biodiversity. And yet mass media, politics, the education system and other realms of public inquiry demonstrate a stunning capacity to focus on what does not really matter. Meanwhile, the truly vital issues receive scant attention to the point of invisibility: the parlous prospects for humanity's survival and the root causes underlying the global environmental threat.

Perpetuating the Poverty Myth

Vandana Shiva - Sachs is wrong when he says: "In a world of plenty, 1 billion people are so poor their lives are in danger." The indigenous people in the Amazon, the mountain communities in the Himalayas, peasants anywhere whose land has not been appropriated and whose water and biodiversity have not been destroyed by debt-creating industrial agriculture are ecologically rich, even though they earn less than a dollar a day.

When a Language Dies

CounterPunch.org - John Ross - The planet upon which we dwell is no longer the Tower of Babel it once was. Like bio-diversity, linguistic diversity is drying up at an alarming rate. Of 6000 known human languages, half are in imminent danger of disappearing, and 90% could be erased forever within a century, according to dire UNESCO reports. One language system is lost every two weeks, the United Nations cultural agency warns--five Indian subcontinent languages were irretrievably wiped out during the tsunami that obliterated islands in the Bay of Bengal earlier this year.

COP 11 Climate Change: Voluntary Compliance and Procrastination: The Demise of the Environment

INCLUDED. REPORT CARD ON COMPLANCE WITH THE FRAMEWORK CONVENTiON ON CLIMATE CHANGE

We are living in the wake of negligence of corporate and government collusion. For years, governments, especially Canadian governments, have promoted corporate voluntary compliance and procrastinated about implementing and enforcing regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to conserve carbon sinks,

Forest Flipping Frenzy

PEJ News
- Ingmar Lee - Every flip has serious ecological consequences. For example, when Washington-based Weyerhaeuser wolfed MacMillan Bloedel in 1998, they immediately proceeded to exterminate Vancouver Island's final ancient fir forests which once covered 20% of the island. They also took out the Island's second and even third growth forests down to 30 year-old pecker-pole stands for their annual million cubic-metre raw-log-to-the- USA export business.

Sumas II denied the transboundary principle affirmed

Global Compliance Research Project - Joan Russow - There is no legitimate ground for appeal of the recent decision of the Federal Court of Appeal, against the Sumas II Project. It was clear from the beginning of the application that although the plant was located in the US, there would be transboundary environmental consequences in Canada, and consequently a ruling from the Canadian National Energy Board against the Sumas II project was justified.

Germ Warfare: Bush Declares War on the Flu

The Nation - Jeremy Scahill - In early November George W. Bush, struggling to claw his way upward in polls that had acquired the consistency of quicksand after two months of blunders and disasters, launched a new PR blitz. The Administration declared it was taking charge of the nation's health and security with an all-out war on the flu (to be conducted with vaccines provided by well-connected pharmaceutical companies). "Our country has been given fair warning of this danger to our homeland," Bush declared. "It's my responsibility as President to take measures now to protect the American people."
