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

Tell Greenpeace, WWF and Friends to Stop Promoting Old-Growth Logging

Forests.org
- In 2001 major logging companies and the B.C. government agreed to sit down with these environmental organizations to discuss plans for logging the GBR. Since then the misnamed Rainforest Solutions Project (RSP) has reached a "consensus agreement" with their industry partners.

Is Europe Abandoning Climate Talks Leadership?

OCTOBER 14, 2005 12:43 PM - Friends of the Earth International (Press Release)

BRUSSELS - European Union Environment Ministers are meeting on Monday (17 October) to agree a European strategy for the next United Nations climate negotiations, which take place in Montreal, Canada next month. The meeting takes place amidst fears that the international leadership previously demonstrated by the EU on climate change may now be watered down. There appears to be low ambitions within the EU on future UN negotiations on climate change, and unwillingness to set themselves robust future targets. Friends of the Earth says that such an attitude would be disastrous: unless tough action is urgently taken, the impacts will be severe for the entire world.

Catherine Pearce, Friends of the Earth International Climate Campaigner said: "Warnings about the terrible impacts of climate change are growing louder every day. If we are to avoid a climatic disaster the European Union must continue to push for tough international action to tackle emissions. Unless the world takes urgent action to cut its emissions, the economic, environmental and human costs will be enormous."

Hubris Shaken: A World Aquiver

Empire Burlesque
- Chris Floyd - All across the Hindu Kush, spreading through Central and South Asia, an underground tsunami of stone sent tens of thousands down to Sheol - old and young, male and female, good and evil alike. On that same day, on the other side of the world, hundreds more were drowned in mud and rock when the backwash of a hurricane tumbled down on the Mayan Indians of Panabaj.

Diane Wilson: I?m Not Going to Jail Until Warren Andersen Is Extradited to India

Corporate Crime Reporter - August 2002 - Seadrift, Texas - Diane Wilson is facing four months of jail in Texas. But she now says that she?s not going to jail until Warren Andersen, the former CEO of Union Carbide, is extradited to face manslaughter charges in Bhopal, India. ?I?m going to go on the lam,? Wilson told Corporate Crime Reporter today. ?I realize I have to go to jail. I?m quite willing to do that. But Warren Andersen ? who jumped bail 13 years ago ? needs to go to jail too. I?m going to stay out to expose the inequality ? corporate executives don?t go to jail for high crimes and little citizens go to jail for misdemeanors.?

Santiago Under the Volcano

PEJ News - C. L. Cook - For the fortunate, there are moments in life that utterly destroy the comfortable precepts of reality we cling to, revealing the naked injustice of life on this planet and laying bare one's heart and soul to the immense tragedy that is the existence many of our fellow humans endure. My moment of aweful clarity came as I watched two dogs locked in comical coitus, unable to extricate themselves from their passion.
