NASA No News Good News or NO?

PEJ News
- C. L. Cook - Considering the possible magnitude of the Space Shuttle Discovery's predicament, it's receiving amazingly thin coverage in the Corporate media. Yes, there are snippets, almost uniformly covering peripheral factums of the mission, but it seems they're willing to wait silently while the drama unfolds in outer space.

Shades of Columbia? Discovery Shuttle Launch Fractures Heat Tiles

PEJ News - C. L. Cook -
As was the case with it's predecessor, the doomed Columbia, exploded in the atmosphere during re-entry, video of today's launch of Discovery too revealed pieces of the ship's ceramic-tiled underbelly falling away during lift-off.

High Seas High Pollution

Blue Water Network
- With tourist season in Victoria comes too hundreds of cruise ships. These humongous vessels, some carrying as many as 5000 passengers and crew, sit just metres off shore at Ogden Point. While the guests check out the city, their ride spews bunker diesel fumes across James Bay and into the city. Something to consider, as the BWN explains: "One ship entering port generates the air pollution of 350,000 cars in one hour." - {lex}

Science Under Siege

Rachel's Environment & Health News # 822 - July 21, 2005 - Tim Montague - An ill wind is gusting through the halls of science these days: faked research, suppression of unwelcome results, corruption of science advisory panels, university research falling under the influence of corporate sponsors, and many other conflicts of interest. It's as if science were under siege.

Action Alert: Stop them from drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge



July 20/05,  World Wildlife Fund of Canada.

Why we need to say NO to drilling in the Arctic: 


Once again the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is at risk from oil drilling. Over the past 25 years conservation groups have won the fight against Arctic drilling more than a dozen times. This latest challenge may prove to be different. Embedded in the Budget Reconciliation Act, which only needs the support of 51 of the 100 senators to pass, new Arctic development legislation would open the door for invasive drilling along the Refuge?s vulnerable coastal plain.

Chemicals in People – The “Body Burden”

June 30, 2005 - Courtesy Environment Canada, Pacific and Yukon Region…

Chemicals are everywhere nowadays. From cleaning supplies to personal products, chemicals have become a part of daily life. However, have you ever thought that using these products might be harming you and your family? Many chemicals found in everyday products, such as shampoo and conditioner, have chemicals in it that are known or probable human carcinogens. Consider that that next time you wash your hair! And considering that the government does not require health studies or pre-market testing for cosmetics and other personal care products before they are sold, consumers must educate themselves to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.

Clue to sudden climate change found in Arctic: Climate could change extremely rapidly with very dramatic effects

June 28, 2005 - PhysOrg.com

The sudden deep freeze of the northern hemisphere that occurred 13,000 years ago has been traced to events originating in northern Canada, according to University of Toronto research. The findings could shed light on the future of climate change due to greenhouse gases.

The study, published in the June 2 issue of Nature, pinpoints the exact location where freshwater generated by the melting of the massive Canada-wide Laurentide ice sheet entered the global ocean and caused the Younger Dryas cold reversal, a frigid period where the planet temporarily plunged into ice age conditions. Contrary to previous thinking, the study shows that this meltwater entered the Arctic Ocean rather than the Atlantic and the point of entry was through the MacKenzie River. As the freshwater - lighter due to its lack of salt content - flowed into the ocean it was transported across the pole into the North Atlantic where it shut down the process whereby heavy surface water sinks into the abyss and leads to a warming of the northern hemisphere.

Quotes from "The Ice Is Melting" by Chief Oren Lyons

Schumacher Society: What I say to you today is that the ice is melting in the North as we speak, trees are tipping, the roads are buckling, buildings are falling in. From what? From the permafrost melting. Perma. Permanent frost. No, not so permanent. It's melting right now.  
  
Whatever happens to us will not have any impact on the world. In time, the world will regenerate. It will come back green, and the waters will be clean again. It's just that there won't be any people here. That's all. We're not needed. We're parasites. We don't help the Earth, we take. So if all the people disappear, then the Earth is going to regenerate because there'll be peace here again.

Hybrids Take New York

The Nation - Katrina vanden Heuvel - Frustrated by exorbitant gas prices, Kwame Corsi, a taxi driver from the Bronx, had been waiting years for the chance to drive a hybrid car. In New York, where 93 percent of the city's cabs are Crown Victorias (large Ford models that guzzle a gallon every twelve miles), drivers like Corsi often pay up to $100 dollars a day on fuel. Up until last week, New York City's Taxi and Limousine Commission had refused to grant medallions for hybrid taxis.

A Future Less Tense: An Essay In Wishful Thinking

F.H. Knelman, Ph.D.:
The year was 2055. The world was at last at peace. The oil age had ended, but not without huge social costs. But the costs were so great that the net benefit might be questioned. While a nuclear war had been averted, the global environmental disaster that had occurred was, if anything, more costly. The source was global warming, fueled by greenhouse gases, just as the vast majority of climate experts had predicted thirty years earlier.
