 Laurie Garrett: Are We Prepared for Avian Flu?

(What's all the fuss about Avian Flu anyway? Have a read and find out why the fuss.  P.E.J. Earth editor) 

Interviewed by Jim Motavalli, Editor, E - The Environmental Magazine -- Aug 10/05

Laurie Garrett, the only reporter to win all three of journalism’s big “P” awards (the Peabody, the Polk and the Pulitzer) is extraordinarily well positioned to tell the frightening and emerging story of avian flu. The author of two major public health books, Betrayal of Trust and The Coming Plague: Newly Emerging Diseases in a World out of Balance, she was a science correspondent at National Public Radio before joining the science-writing staff of Newsday in 1988.

RACHEL'S ENVIRONMENT & HEALTH NEWS #823  - Peter Montague & Tim Montague - August 4, 2005 - Anyone who is paying attention to the "precautionary principle" has heard the story that precaution caused a cholera epidemic in Peru in 1991. The story isn't true -- and it was revealed as untrue in 1992 -- but that hasn't stopped it from being told, retold, and told again. It has now taken on the characteristics of an urban legend with a life all its own.[1]

Discovery's Test Comes Tonight

PEJ News -
C. L. Cook - The not usually press-shy NASA has been markedly cautious surrounding the Discovery Shuttle flight. Damage eerily reminiscent to that experienced by the doomed Columbia in 2003 has marred what was to be a rejigged NASA's flawless return to the Shuttle program.

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.

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.
