Trading the Great Forests for a Mountain of Beans

Empire Burlesque - Chris Floyd - The object-glass is daily politics; but on the broader horizon of inquiry, there are vast forces at work -- environmental, economic, social -- whose interrelated movements, like the slow grinding of tectonic plates, will bring forth unanticipated shifts and cataclysms in the politics of the future. Even now, the ground is moving under our feet, generating ripples and tremors -- warning signs of the fissures and eruptions to come.

Water Shortage Hits Australia's Palm Island - Government Says "Not to Worry"

Oread Daily
- This is one of those out of the way stories I run across from time to time. I don?t have a total handle on what is going on here, but I can tell something sure is.

In Australia, the Queensland government has refused a request from Palm Island council to close the Indigenous community to visitors because of a severe water shortage. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Policy Minister John Mickel says the water shortage is being addressed by a number of government departments. He says an extra plumber will ensure that no water is wasted. Mickel said the Government would supply fresh water at cost price. "I'm advised now that supplies of fresh water will be available at the retail store and that will be available at cost for the islanders," he said.

Chicken Little: Selling a Pandemic

JazzmanChronicles - Jack Random - Forget the war. Forget global climate change and a relentless chain of hurricanes, earthquakes and Asian tsunamis. Forget AIDS, poverty and human trafficking. Forget corruption in government and the lies of officials used to justify war. Forget famine in Africa, seed monopolies, drought, disappearing lakes, tropical forest and ozone depletion. Forget the onset of winter in the Himalayas. Forget Katrina, Rita, Wilma and Alpha. Forget New Orleans, Baghdad, Ramadi and Fallujah. Forget Afghanistan and Iraq, Haiti and Palestine, terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.

It is all about the bird flu: Be very afraid.

We Need Oil They've Got and More

NYT - Last spring, the White House publicly embraced plans by Saudi Arabia to increase its oil production capacity significantly. But privately, some officials and others advising the government are skeptical about some of those Saudi forecasts. Doubts about Saudi Arabia's assurances of how much it can expand capacity - and for how long - have been raised in a secret intelligence report and in a separate analysis by a leading government oil adviser, according to a federal government official and the oil expert.

Escaping The Road To Extinction

25 October, 2005 -- Bill Henderson (first published in Countercurrents.org)

"The Gaia hypothesis is a biological idea, but it?s not human-centered. Those who want Gaia to be an Earth goddess for a cuddly, furry human environment find no solace in it. They tend to be critical or to misunderstand. They can buy into the theory only by misinterpreting it. Some critics are worried that the Gaia hypothesis says the environment will respond to any insults done to it and the natural systems will take care of the problems. This, they maintain, gives industries a license to pollute. Yes, Gaia will take care of itself; yes, environmental excesses will be ameliorated, but it?s likely that such restoration of the environment will occur in a world devoid of people."  - Lynn Margulis ?Gaia is a Tough Bitch,? in The Third Culture, John Brockman, ed.

From Tre Arrow

Oct 18/05 - Tre Arrow - Hello to you all, it's Tre. I'm doing well here at Wilkie. My lawyer and I have been working on the submissions to the Minister. This is an intricate part of the appeal process. Even though I've been committed for extradition by Magistrate Gill, the Minister of Justice Irwin Cotler has the power to overturn her decision and not extradite me to the US. I'm writing an affidavit stating the reasons why I feel he should oppose my extradition. I will post this affidavit once it is complete for all to read and pass on to others, if so desired.
