Jilin City, China

A chemical plant belonging to China National Petrochemical Corp. (Sinopec) exploded in Jilin City on 13 November 2005.

More than 10,000 residents were evacuated to avoid chemical pollution. The explosion severely polluted the Songhua River, with an estimated 100 tons of pollutants containing benzene and nitrobenzene entering the water.

A long toxic slick also drifted down the Amur River, where the recorded benzene level was at one point 108 times above national safety levels.

Something to think about.....

"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must - at that moment - become the center of the universe."

Utah’s Ten Most Threatened Wilderness Treasures

The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance (SUWA) recently undertook at statewide review of Utah’s natural wonders and the threats that face them.

SUWA completed detailed inventories, studied BLM’s own documentation of the threats, and consulted with experts.

The result is this report, which highlights ten wilderness treasures that will be lost if we do not act now to protect them.

Major Clovis Discovery in Northern Sonora

Mexican Archaeologists discovered 3 Clovis projectile heads associated to remains of Gomphotheres with an age of at least 12,000 years, in the northern region of the Mexican state of Sonora. The finding is relevant because these are the first evidences in North America of this extinct animal linked to the human species.

The finding opens the possibility of the coexistence of humankind with gomphotheres, animals similar to mammoths, but smaller, in this region of America, which contrasts with theories that declare that this species disappeared 30,000 years ago in this region of America and did not coexist with humans.

Something to think about......

"My conclusion is that the state views animal and Earth liberation activists as “terrorists” because 1) their ideas constitute a threat to the core cultural, political and economic values embodied in the concept of property; 2) they threaten the market imperative to colonize all forms of life; 3) their rejection of hierarchy represents a threat to the broader social order rooted in speciesism, white supremacy, classism and heteropatriarchy; and 4) because, to a large extent, this is not about these movements at all: imposing state repression on these activists sends a strong disciplinary message to the general public to remain complacent."

The Love Canal Tragedy

This neighborhood in Niagara Falls became a dumping ground for toxic waste in the 1920's when William T. Love abandoned his attempt to build a canal.

In the 1940's, Hooker Chemical began dumping industrial waste in the canal and covering it with dirt. The waste was exposed in the 1950's when the local school board bought the land for $1 and two years later construction on the dumping site began to expose the toxic waste to local residents who suffered from serious health problems including asthma, miscarriages and mental retardation, as a result of the toxins.

It was these problems that brought Love Canal into national headlines. A survey found that 56 percent of the children born in that area from 1974-1978 had birth defects.

There’s a common misconception that prior to European contact in the 15th century, the Americas were a pristine, untouched wilderness, inhabited by people who lived in complete harmony with their environment. In reality, humans have been affecting and influencing their surroundings as long as we’ve existed.

An interview with Edward Abbey

Snaketown - Hohokam village

The archaeological site of Snaketown belongs to the Hohokam culture of the American southwest, and is located on the Gila River in the Sonoran Desert of central Arizona.

Occupied from the 1st century BC through the mid-1500s, Snaketown consists of a village of pithouses and one large (195 feet by 15-20 feet deep) oval ball court, indicating evidence of connections with central American societies. Excavators include Emil Haury, E.B. Sayles and Harold and Nora Gladwin.

This site is a significant example of the Hohokam culture, which lived in the broader area from about AD 1 until approximately AD 1500. Snaketown, contained in a one-half mile by three-quarters mile piece of property, was occupied by Hohokam people during the Pioneer and Early Sedentary stages (approximately 300 BC to AD 1100).

Early in the Classic Period (AD 1150-1400/1450) the community of Snaketown, once apparently central to the broader Hohokam culture, was suddenly abandoned. Parts of its structure were burned, and the site was not reoccupied.

Negotiation Is Over......Guide to Direct Action

Direct action refers to political activism which is intended to immediately make a difference in a situation, through a variety of means. Unlike indirect action such as participating in elections, direct action often has an immediate impact through obstructing planned activities or business practices, and it also publicizes the issue at hand. There are numerous ways to engage in direct action, ranging from legal demonstrations to illegal sabotage

The Monsanto company was created in 1901 by John Francis Queeny . Named after his wife, Olga Mendez Monsanto, the name Monsanto has since, for many around the world, come to symbolize the greed, arrogance, scandal and hardball business practices of many multinational corporations. A couple of historical factoids not generally known are the fact that Monsanto was heavily involved during WWII in the creation of the first nuclear bomb for the Manhattan Project; via its facilities in Dayton Ohio. The Dayton Project was headed by Charlie Thomas, Director of Monsanto's Central Research Department, wholater became the company's president. [2], [3] Monsanto also operated a nuclear facility for the federal government in Miamisburg, Ohio, called the Mound Project, until the 1980s.

"In 1967, Monsanto entered into a joint venture with IG Farben. (The) German chemical firm that was the financial core of the Hitler regime, and was the main supplier of Zyklon-B to the German government during the extermination phase of the Holocaust."

IG Farben was not dissolved until 2003 [6]. For a short Monsanto history, see also [7], [8]. See also pharmaceutical industry.

Monsanto was the creator of several attractions in Disney's Tommorrowland . Often they revolved around the the virtues of chemicals and plastics. Their "House of the Future" was constructed entirely of plastic, but biodegradable it was not.......


There are many answers to this question. We will attempt to keep it simple......

Globe’s coral reefs suffer second worst bleaching on record during 2010

In October, marine scientists said the Southeast Asia and Indian Ocean bleaching “may prove to be the worst such event known to science.” NOAA pointed out in November that

As the “rainforests of the sea,” coral reefs provide economic services — jobs, food and tourism — estimated to be worth as much as $375 billion each year.

The former chief scientist of the Australian Institute of Marine Science wrote in December, “The end is in sight for the world’s coral reefs.”

"And just what the hell are they planning next?"

The bridge, bedecked with bunting, steamers and Day-Glo banners, was ready. the throng prepared to unloose a cheer or two. Suddenly the center of the bridge rose up and broke in two along a jagged zigzag line. A sheet of read flame streamed skyward...

"This is their last stunt, Governor. We're on their tail, sir. We have a good idea who they are, how they operate, and what they're planning next."

Canyons of the Ancients.....

Canyon of the Ancients National Monument was home to the Anasazi people as early at 7500 B.C. For the past 8500 years, the Ancestral Puebloans, nomadic Ute and Navajo tribes have moved in and out of the region.

The area was once a spot for villages, field houses, check dams, reservoirs, great kivas, cliff dwellings, shrines, sacred springs, agricultural fields, petroglyphs and sweat lodges.

Now the highest density of archeology sites in the United States, the monument was designated a National Monument in June of 2000 by President Clinton. In the 164,000 acres the monument covers, there are 20,000 - 30,000 archeology sites.

In some places such as the Mockingbird Mesa, there are as many as 40 sites per square mile. Located in the 4 corners area, the park is 28 miles from Mancos, 10 miles north of Cortez, just west of Dolores.
