Tar Sands Processing requires massive inputs of water, energy, land, labour
By : The Dominion - Monday January 7, 2008
For each barrel of oil produced from the tar sands, between two and 4.5 barrels of water is needed. The waste sand and water contain naphtha and paraffin, which are used in the extraction process, and oil leftovers like benzene, naphthenic acid and polyaromatic hydrocarbon, among others. Chemicals found in the tailing ponds are known to cause liver problems and brain hemorrhaging in mammals, and deformities and death in birds.

by Rosalie Bertell, Ph.D., GNSH Presented in Barcelona, Thursday, 24 June, 2004 Abstract: There has been a fundamental change in the nature of war and militarism since World War I, and this change has escalated out of control since World War II. The use of toxic gas as a weapon, poisoning of water ways or air, and using chemicals in warfare broke the taboo against widespread and indiscriminative killing of non-combatants,. This trend escalated during WW II through carpet bombings, the (...)

inconvenient Peace Prize
By : Amerikagulag - Tuesday November 27, 2007
THIS YEAR’S Nobel Peace Prize justly rewards the thousands of scientists of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. These scientists are engaged in excellent, painstaking work that establishes exactly what the world should expect from climate change. The other award winner, former US vice president Al Gore, has spent much more time telling us what to fear. While the IPCC’s estimates and conclusions are grounded in careful study, Gore doesn’t seem to (...)

Ecological Warfare : Iraq’s Environmental Crisis
By : Jany - Friday October 26, 2007
By JEFFREY ST. CLAIR and JOSHUA FRANK The ecological effects of war, like its horrific toll on human life, are exponential. When the Bush Administration and their Congressional allies sent our troops in to Iraq to topple Saddam’s regime, they not only ordered these men and women to commit crimes against humanity, they also commanded them to perpetrate crimes against nature. The first Gulf War had a horrific effect on the environment, as CNN reported in 1999, "Iraq was responsible (...)

It’s insanity, stupid! - Al Gore and that Nobel Peace Prize
By : Gabriele Zamparini - Monday October 15, 2007

By Gabriele Zamparini The Nobel Peace Prize to Al Gore opened a heated debate: was it right to award a mass murderer and war criminal? This is a curious question that certainly would have a meaning in a sane world, certainly not in ours. A few days ago, commenting on this blog about this ordinary episode of folly, I wrote that Al Gore was “(…) a top war criminal that in a sane world would be hanged or imprisoned for life. But we are not living in a sane world – just (...)

Food Guides for the Organically Inclined: Fertilisers Blamed for Frog Deformities
By : chycho - Thursday September 27, 2007
Reports from American scientists are claiming that “run-off from farmland drenched in fertilisers is behind the explosion in amphibians missing legs, or having extra legs and other deformities.” This is the first report to find a correlation between “nutrient enrichment” and severe limb deformities and increased mortality in species within “the aquatic ecosystem”. If fertilisers are having such a severe effect on amphibians and other species, it would be (...)

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. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

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. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

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 (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

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 (...)
