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.

Avian flu reaches England as --- a Dead Parrot

The Guardian - No, it's not a Monty Python joke. The first English casualty of the new deadly bird flu is indeed a dead parrot. Despite all the obvious jokes, this unexpectedly rapid spread to the UK is scary as hell.....

Environmental Priority
(Ideas from ?A Global Parliament? by C. Hamer, Sept. World Federalist Meeting)

It is imperative we adopt the following legislation ASAP due to the escalation of serious environmental conditions which put the survival of the planet at risk.  The French Parliament has approved (by a vote of 531 to 23) an amendment to its constitution, which places environmental protection right up there next to Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity.

Another Cat. 5 Hurricane: Headed for Florida?

CBC.ca  -
The most severe Hurricane season on record became official overnight, as Tropical Storm Wilma grew to hurricane strength. And, how it grew! 'Hurricane Wilma' is now rated as a Category 5 hurricane, as was it's famous predecessor, Katrina. Now, Florida watches nervously to see which course the monster storm will take. Already, 10 people are reported to have been killed in Haiti by mudslides, triggered by Wilma's heavy rains. Hurricane Wilma becomes the first since naming hurricanes began to be designated with a "W," the last letter of the english alphabet to be used. The next storm in the still adolescent hurricane season will be designated using Greek letter Alpha. -lex
