To See the World...George Bush Finds Darwin

- Dave Lindorff - The Creationist-in-Chief, in his latest press conference, expressed concern that the Bird Flu virus could evolve into a strain capable of being transmitted from human to human, instead of just from bird to bird or bird to human. If so, he warned, it could lead to up to 2 million deaths in the U.S. alone.

Sea Ice Decline Intensifies

This is a joint press release between the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), a part of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado, Boulder; NASA; and the University of Washington.

28 September 2005

For the fourth consecutive year, NSIDC and NASA scientists using satellite data have tracked a stunning reduction in arctic sea ice at the end of the northern summer. The persistence of near-record low extents leads the group to conclude that Arctic sea ice is likely on an accelerating, long-term decline.

Waiting for Rita: Jackie Newberry from Houston

MediaChannel - Jackie Newberry - "Some of the freeways are cleared... TX DOT delivering gas to strandees on the freeway...news I saw said 5 gallons a car. 300 people volunteered and stayed up 'til 4:00 a.m. delivering water to the people stuck on freeways... Mayor still saying to stay home... Question whether that would be the instructions if the freeways hadn't become such a friggin' mess?"

Trouble with the Antarctic Ozone Hole? NASA Graph

(The United Nation's International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer is on September 16th)

Sept 14/05 ---  dani rubin, PEJ Earth Editor

I well remember in 1977 when my dear friend, Kenneth Clark, told me straight out the we were in trouble - CFC's were destroying the Earth's ozone layer. At that time it all seemed so hypothetical. 25 years later, well after they had banned CFC's, NASA (and other researchers) reported that the biggest hole, the Antarctic Hole was shrinking. Finally something was getting better - using common sense we had solved this terrifying problem! 

Hmmm....

I wish that this was the end of this "story" but we still dump a lot of CFC's and other ozone depleting junk into the upper atmosphere. As the graph clearly indicates the Antarctic Ozone Hole is still growing - and is now threatening the health and well-being of those who live in southern Australia, Argentina and Chile.

2005 World Summit must move towards implementing the precautionary principle



The global community is living with the consequences of misapplication of the precautionary principle. Actions to prevent threats to the environment and human health have been superseded by actions to ursurp the fundamental purpose of the United Nations- to prevent the scourge of war.

RACHEL'S ENVIRONMENT & HEALTH NEWS #824 - August 18, 2005photo- An oil refinery

Part 1: ENDING GOVERNMENT REGULATION BY MANUFACTURING DOUBT

By Peter Montague

Thirty years ago, scientists began reporting birth defects and unusual homosexual behavior in wildlife, which they couldn't explain. (See Rachel's #146, #263.) By the late 1980s, Theo Colborn -- an expert on the Great Lakes -- thought she saw a pattern, and she pulled together a scientific meeting in July 1991 to discuss it. The result was the "Wingspread Statement" on hormone-disrupting chemicals which began:

"We are certain of the following:

"A large number of man-made chemicals that have been released into the environment, as well as a few natural ones, have the potential to disrupt the endocrine [hormone] system of animals, including humans.... Many wildlife populations are already affected by these compounds." (Rachel's #263)

Cheering the Climate Criminals II

Medialens -
September 2, 2005 - Where are the leading articles or news reports highlighting the insidious efforts of big business to obstruct the rational policies on energy, transport, food production and trade that we need so urgently? Where are the news stories addressing the billions spent annually by business and the public relations industry on promoting unsustainable consumer consumption?

Fallujah, Louisiana

PEJ News
- C. L. Cook - Night is falling again in New Orleans, and reports aired by CNN paint a desperate picture. Without water, power, and hope for immediate rescue, the people stranded in the city face another night of thirst, hunger, deprivation, and now, reportedly, marauding armed gangs, and at least one insane sniper.
