The Day After We Bomb Iran

What would happen after the first of these successful attacks would be oil trading at astronomical highs: $150 to $200 a barrel. Or roughly two to three times what is has been trading at during the Iraq war. Six to nine dollars a gallon at your local pump.

US plan for air strikes on Iran 'backed by Brown'

A plan by the Bush administration to launch surgical strikes on Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps has won the support of Gordon Brown, according to a US report, although a presidential "execute order" required for such an operation has yet to be issued.

Time to Boycott Voting

By Joel S. Hirschhorn

After many years of political disappointment, more progressives, liberals and conservatives - and certainly moderates and independents - know in their hearts that voting for Democrats or Republicans is a waste. Just imagine if voter turnout was cut to 25 percent or less! Let the whole world see Americans boycotting a broken and corrupt political system and rejecting what has become a delusional democracy.

Wir speichern nicht!

Zum jetzt bekannt gewordenen Urteil eines Berliner Amtsgerichtes, welches Webseiten-Betreibern das Speichern von personenbezogenen Daten verbietet, und zur Kampagne "Wir speichern nicht" des Arbeitskreises Vorratsdatenspeicherung erklärt die stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Katina Schubert:

Das Urteil eines Berliner Amtsgerichts, das es dem Bundesjustizministerium untersagt, die Zugriffe auf seine Internetseite in einer Weise zu protokollieren, die eine Identifizierung von Besuchern ermöglicht, ist eine schallende Ohrfeige für die Pläne der Bundesregierung zur Vorratsdatenspeicherung. Das Gericht geht davon aus, dass über die Aufbewahrung von Kommunikationsspuren wie IP-Adressen das Recht auf informationelle Selbstbestimmung verletzt wird. Das Urteil stützt die Position der LINKEN gegen die vom Justizministerium geplante allgemeine und verdachtsunabhängige sechsmonatige Vorratsdatenspeicherung. Im Gegensatz zu Websites des Bundes und der Länder verzichtet DIE LINKE auf derlei Aufzeichnungsverfahren, so dass sich Interessenten und Nutzer unseres Internetauftritts unbeschwert über die Arbeit der Partei informieren können. DIE LINKE hat sich deshalb mit ihrer Interseite http://www.die-linke.de um das Gütesiegel "Wir speichern nicht!" des Arbeitskreises Vorratsdatenspeicherung (AK Vorrat) beworben und fordert alle Gliederungen der Partei auf, sich dieser Initiative anzuschließen. Generalverdacht statt Unschuldsvermutung ist die verfassungswidrige Kurzform der von der Koalition unter dem Vorwand der Terrorbekämpfung vorangetriebenen rigiden Einschränkungen des Rechts auf informationelle Selbstbestimmung. Bürgerliche Freiheitsrechte sind ein unveräußerliches Gut, deshalb unterstützen wir die verfassungsrechtlichen Bedenken der Datenschützer gegen die Pläne der Koalition.

History will not be kind to Condi Rice. The United States has had a number of distinguished secretaries of state since World War II, but she will not be counted among them. Although it would be unfair to compare Rice to George Marshall, the architect of the Marshall Plan, which began economic integration in Western Europe, her performance pales in comparison to the independence, integrity, and leadership of a Dean Acheson or a James Baker. Condi Rice will be remembered chiefly for her unswerving personal loyalty to George Bush and her unstinting efforts to sell the neocons’ dysfunctional foreign policy to an increasingly skeptical nation and hostile world...

Oversight panel chronicles alleged Blackwater abuses

CBS News

10/01/07

Democratic aides on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are experts at framing a hearing, and they didn’t pull any punches for Blackwater USA. The committee released a 15-page memo Monday afternoon, on the eve of a Tuesday hearing about Blackwater, chronicling a string of alleged abuses by the security firm in its work for the State Department since 2003. Blackwater has been involved in 195 ‘escalation of force’ incidents since 2005 in which guards for the firm fired shots, according to the report. Contractors for the firm fired the first shots in an overwhelming majority of those incidents. Documents released by the State Department also suggest the agency allowed Blackwater to fly a contractor out of Iraq shortly after that contractor, during a drunken episode, shot a guard for the Iraqi vice president...

Human Behavior, Global Warming and the Ubiquitous Plastic Bag

Now, it has begun to dawn on people that you don't need either. Most supermarkets these days sell sturdy, reusable bags for 99 cents that people can use instead of plastic ones. Except almost no one does."

The Folly, Egoism and Dangers of Climate Geo-Engineering

Is humanity so resistant to change that we will tamper with the biosphere's workings to construct a "Frankensphere"; rather than reducing population, consumption and emissions?

Earth Meanders, http://earthmeanders.blogspot.com/ By Dr. Glen Barry

October 2, 2007

It is being widely suggested that humanity can "geo-engineer" a global solution to climate change; that is, modify the Earth's biosphere at a planetary scale. Many methods are suggested. Most include either reflecting additional solar radiation away from the Earth, or using the ocean to store more carbon.

Radical geo-engineering proposals emerge largely from a sense of desperation as the world fails to rein in greenhouse gas emissions, and an unwillingness to make necessary societal and personal changes in response to deadly climate change. To some the extreme action of taking the Earth's ecological systems into techno-human hands seems sensible given indications that global heating is proceeding more rapidly than thought, as shown by unexpectedly quick melting of Arctic sea ice.

Risky climate geo-engineering schemes include giant vertical pipes in the ocean to increase ocean circulation and thus marine carbon sequestration, similarly growing vast blooms of ocean plankton by fertilizing with iron, erecting giant mirrors above the earth to reflect the sun's energy, and dropping sulfur particles from balloons at high altitude to do the same.

Two rogue US companies are moving forward with plans to fertilize the ocean with iron to create plankton blooms to suck heat-trapping carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. They are motivated by profits from the growing carbon credit market, rising public demands for action, and politicians eager to avoid painful reductions in emissions. There is little that can be done to stop them, as no applicable laws or treaties exist.

Such efforts to "manage" Gaia are absolute madness – betting the planet and humanity on something as complex as artificially regulating a biosphere. Radical geo-engineering proposals could just as easily worsen the situation if these projects fail or are suddenly halted. And it is highly likely that unintended consequences of widespread implementation of such schemes would outweigh possible benefits. Failure could destroy the Earth.

There has been little research on the potential impacts upon marine ecosystems. The powerful greenhouse gas nitrous oxide may be released as marine organic matter decomposes. Oxygen may become depleted in the deep ocean, killing fish and throwing already troubled marine ecosystems into further turmoil. Even James Lovelock, the British scientist that first conceived of Gaia as a self-regulating organism, has fallen victim to favoring human technology over proven Earth processes.

Gaia, the Earth System, is a finely honed creature with unbelievably complex and ancient existing systems of planetary regulation. Messing with ocean carbon storage and solar radiation levels will affect ocean currents and acidity, atmospheric circulation and weather. Almost certainly there will be a whole host of follow-on effects, and dependable climatic patterns are likely to be further seriously diminished.

It is unfathomable to me that after millennia of ecological ignorance and unconstrained global ecological change leading to our current ecological crises, that a handful of scientists and business people could be so egotistical as to suppose they can play God and refashion a planet. Once geo-engineering is embraced, we could never stop, or the carbon would be re- released. Again, to propose human management of the biosphere is so egoistical and dangerous; and wrong on so many levels.

These may be desperate times, but governments have not even acted yet to set mandatory reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The skeptics have only just gone from denying the problem to minimizing its importance. Rather than embracing known sufficient policies that could solve the problem by transforming our energy and transportation systems, it is human nature to seek the easy way out. Yet reducing emissions of CO2, population, and consumption; and restoring global ecological systems, is so much more likely to be effective.

So much nature remains -- that could be enlarged, reconnected and regenerated -- that it is wrong to give up on natural ecosystems' processes to embrace a techno-industrial "Frankensphere". A failing biosphere can never be managed in any real sense to mimic a healthy biosphere. It is simply too complex.

If SUVs and coal plants are still spewing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, clearly risky geo-engineering is unjustified. Humanity is unable to eliminate exotic species, live peacefully, end deforestation, or stop having so many babies; yet it is going to take the global ecosystem into its management? Geo-engineering cannot succeed and it is terribly misguided to suggest it can.

Geo-engineering represents the shameless extreme nature of societal refusal to cut energy use and emissions. We have not even really tried in earnest as a human family to do so through conservation, efficiency and alternatives. Yet, before we have even begun, we are going to bet the human family's future on technological fixes that we hope will allow us to continue consuming, and pumping out babies and emissions, without end?

I am furious; absolutely certain with every thread of my ecological knowledge, intuition and being that no good and a large amount of harm will come from geo-engineering. Proposed global scale experimental environmental fixes will be disastrous. Under no circumstances may untested planetary manipulations commence until all other options have failed. The seeds of an operable biosphere remain, they must be given time and space to reestablish themselves; and humanity challenged and aided by all means to embrace necessary radical change.

The biosphere belongs to all people and tribes, and should it come to wild once off experiments with the Earth, the decision must be made by United Nations consensus. Until then, government prohibitions on unsanctioned activities must be implemented with all haste. Given the lack of regulation against such planetary scale climate experiments, direct action to stop arbitrary and capricious geo-engineering implementation is warranted and necessary.
