This 12-Step Program Can Break U.S. Oil
By : Michael Brune - Saturday February 11, 2006
1 comment
by Michael Brune Our president almost came clean in his State of the Union speech last week when he finally admitted that "America is addicted to oil." That addiction threatens our national security, our environmental health and our way of life. It is true that our leaders are exhibiting the classic signs of an addiction denial, aggression, avoidance, blaming others and as a country we are falling far short of reaching our full potential. America’s stubborn dependence on oil erodes (...)

It’s capitalism or a habitable planet - you can’t have both
By : Robert Newman - Sunday February 5, 2006

Our economic system is unsustainable by its very nature. The only response to climate chaos and peak oil is major social change by Robert Newman There is no meaningful response to climate change without massive social change. A cap on this and a quota on the other won’t do it. Tinker at the edges as we may, we cannot sustain earth’s life-support systems within the present economic system. Capitalism is not sustainable by its very nature. It is predicated on infinitely (...)

Iran’s Oil Exchange Threatens the Greenback
By : Anne - Friday January 27, 2006
4 comments
The Bush administration will never allow the Iranian government to open an oil exchange (bourse) that trades petroleum in euros. If that were to happen, hundreds of billions of dollars would come flooding back to the United States crushing the greenback and destroying the economy. This is why Bush and Co. is planning to lead the nation to war against Iran. It is straightforward defense of the current global system and the continuing dominance of the reserve currency, the dollar. The claim (...)

Country slashes fuel prices to help ease heating costs among U.S. poor. *Singer/activist Harry Belafonte has given public props to the government of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for providing cheap home heating oil to poor families in the United States.

Peak Oil and the End of Empire
By : Charles Sullivan - Wednesday January 4, 2006
3 comments
by Charles Sullivan Peak oil is most likely a term most readers have not heard before. That is about to change. The concept is slowly making its way onto the mainstream stage. It is intruding into the fringes of the public conscience and soon it may occupy the greater part. When that time comes, as it inevitably will, and probably sooner than you think, the world as we know it will end. Oil is the lifeblood not only of the U.S. economy-especially its terrible military capability-it is in (...)

Chad angry at World Bank over oil
By : Chad - Sunday January 1, 2006
1 comment
Chad has reacted angrily to warnings from the World Bank, after its parliament voted to relax controls on the use of its oil revenues. The government has accused the World Bank of acting like a coloniser. The body lent Chad more than $39m (£23m) to build a pipeline with an estimated total cost of almost $4bn. It was on condition that Chad’s churches, trade unions and non-governmental organisations monitored how oil revenues were spent. This was meant to guaranteed that oil money (...)

Chavez Exposes US Gov’t Values: Chicago turns down cheap fuel for the poor
By : Jessica Pupovac - Saturday December 31, 2005
Chicago, Dec 28 - The Chicago Transit Authority is refusing an opportunity to alleviate commuting costs for hundreds of thousands in the Windy City’s low-income neighborhoods. Instead of accepting deeply discounted fuel from the Venezuela-owned Citgo Petroleum Corporation, the city is instead raising fares to solve budget shortfalls. In an October meeting with representatives from the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), the city’s Department of Energy and other city officials, (...)

The ambitious, behind-the-scenes plan was passed to The Independent this week, just as 189 countries are painfully trying to agree the second stage of Kyoto at the UN climate conference in Montreal. It was pitched to companies such as Ford Europe, Lufthansa and the German utility giant RWE. Put (...)

While the Iraqi people struggle to define their future amid political chaos and violence, the fate of their most valuable economic asset, oil, is being decided behind closed doors. This report reveals how an oil policy with origins in the US State Department is on course to be adopted in Iraq, soon after the December elections, with no public debate and at enormous potential cost. The policy allocates the majority[1] of Iraq’s oilfields — accounting for at least 64% of the (...)

Bush, Congress Turn a Cold Shoulder To America’s Poor This Winter
By : Brian McAfee - Thursday November 3, 2005
by Brian McAfee President Bush and Congress nixed winter heating aid for poor families 3 months after subsidizing oil companies. Energy Secretary Sam Bodman said "this is not something I would be in favor of (using some of the oil profits to help the nations poor). That would be the equivalent of windfall profits tax" Bodman went on to say that any transfer of oil profits to programs to help the poor with heating this winter is not even under consideration.

Bid for More Home Heating Aid Fails in Senate

The Senate decided yesterday the money was not there for a substantial spending boost for the federal home heating program, deflecting arguments that soaring energy prices could force the poor to choose between heat and food this winter. Senators voted 54 to 43 in favor of a proposal to boost the fiscal 2006 budget for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program from $2.2 billion to $5.1 billion. A 60-vote majority was needed to approve new spending not coupled with equivalent spending (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
