When Climate Message Is Strong, Attack the Messenger!

In his examination of framing and language, Joe Brewer looks at the use of framing in discourse regarding global warming: "William J. Broad's article, 'From a Rapt Audience, a Call to Cool the Hype,' in the science section already ranks as one of the most popular articles of the day. This article is filled with misuses and abuses of language designed to undermine the credibility of Al Gore as a messenger for global warming."

For Many Iraqis, Hunt for Missing Is Never-Ending

The past year of dizzying violence in Iraq has produced thousands of Iraqis like Ms. Rashid - sad-eyed seekers caught in an endless loop of inquiry and disappointment. Burdened by grief without end or answers, they face a set of horrors as varied and fractured as Iraq itself.

Phone mast campaigners stage protest

By Gerran Grimshaw

RESIDENTS angered by a mobile phone company's refusal to take down a controversial mast staged a protest outside the firm's York store on Saturday.

Ever since the Orange mast was put up in Sheriff Hutton in October 2005, villagers have been campaigning to have it taken down.

Now the company has ended negotiations with the village's mast protest group, and has said the mast will be turned on in the near future.

The angry residents vowed to take their protest to the front door of the Orange Shop, in Coney Street, York.

Linda Murphy, from the mast protest group, said the group had proof that Orange had offered to take down the 15-metre structure if Ryedale District Council paid the £60,000 costs.

Mrs Murphy, who lives only 85 metres from the mast and has two young children, said: "Since Christmas, we've been negotiating with Orange to see if the village as a whole is willing to raise the money to pay for the mast to be taken down.

"But we had a letter from them last week saying they have no intention of negotiating further, and said they will now turn the mast on. They said any damage to it would be considered criminal damage."

She said the council said it could not justify spending so much on one community.

"The mast was put up because Ryedale District Council was too slow stopping it," Mrs Murphy said. "We've been left to pick up the pieces as a community."

She said residents were concerned about the potential long-term health effects of having the mast so close to people.

An Orange spokesman said: "While Orange has secured all necessary consents, direct action by a limited number of residents has to date prevented the completion of works to allow the site to operate.

"In seeking to respond to local concern, Orange met directly with representatives of the district council, where the authority discussed a variety of issues - including funding a search of alternative solutions.

"Having conducted a review of siting options without recourse to public funds, Orange maintains that the base station is located suitably when set against national planning guidance.

"As such, it is Orange's intention to take forward plans to connect power to the long established site and provide network coverage to the local area.

"Orange remains committed to liaising with local stakeholders where appropriate."

Billboarding the Iraqi Disaster

Anthony Arnove looks at the numbing numbers four years into the war and puts them next to the better known - and equally numbing - numbers in Darfur, comparing the response in US progressive circles to both tragedies. Looking at what the US attack on Iraq has unleashed, and at widespread appeals for US military intervention in Sudan, Arnove notes: "The focus on Darfur serves to legitimize the idea of US intervention at the very moment when the carnage that such intervention causes is all too visible and is being widely repudiated around the globe."

Billboarding the Iraqi Disaster

Anthony Arnove begins his exploration of the conditions in Iraq four years after the US invasion this way: "As you read this, we're four years from the moment the Bush administration launched its shock-and-awe assault on Iraq, beginning 48 months of remarkable, non-stop destruction of that country ... and still counting. It's an important moment for taking stock of Operation Iraqi Freedom."

US-Stützpunkte in Deutschland schließen

#Die Linkspartei.PDS: Pressemitteilungen

19. März 2007

Am 20. März 2003 begann der völkerrechtswidrige Krieg der USA und ihrer "Koalition der Willigen" gegen den Irak. Dazu erklärt der außenpolitische Sprecher des Parteivorstandes Wolfgang Gehrcke:

Der Beginn des Irak-Krieges basierte auf Gewalt, Lügen und Bruch des Völkerrechts. Millionen Menschen in aller Welt haben gegen diesen Krieg demonstriert, Hunderttausende auch in Deutschland. Sie alle hatten mit ihrem Nein zum Krieg Recht. Der US-Krieg gegen den Irak hat Terrorismus nicht bekämpft, sondern verstärkt. Er hat die Verbreitung von Massenvernichtungswaffen nicht eingedämmt, sondern befördert. Und er trägt nicht zur Demokratisierung bei, sondern die Demokratie auch in den Krieg führenden Ländern wird eingeschränkt. Die Befürchtungen der Linken haben sich bestätigt. Deutschland ist tiefer in den Krieg verstrickt, als es die Bundesregierung zugegeben hat. Das Urteil des Bundesverwaltungsgerichts im Falle des Majors Pfaff hat eindeutig festgehalten, dass auch die rot-grüne Bundesregierung sich völkerrechtswidrig verhalten hat. Ohne dass der deutsche Luftraum genutzt und die US-Stützpunkte in Deutschland zu Drehscheiben des Krieges gemacht worden wären, wäre es der Bush-Administration sehr schwer gefallen, diesen Krieg zu führen. Vier Jahre Irak-Krieg und die Drohung eines neuen Krieges gegen Iran machen es unumgänglich, dass die US-Militärflüge über Deutschland ohne konkrete Genehmigung im Einzelfall eingestellt und die Verträge über die US-Stützpunkte aufgekündigt werden. Ohne den Abzug der US-Truppen aus dem Irak wird es keine Stabilisierung im Lande geben. Auch das ist eine Konsequenz des Krieges.

Church phone mast 'risk to pupils' lives'

By Clare Semke
Health re3porter

Residents and pupils from Portsmouth High School protest outside St Judes Church

A CHURCH stands accused of endangering the health of hundreds of pupils in a bid to make money.

Parents and residents are protesting at plans for a G3 mobile phone antenna at St Jude's Church, Kent Road, Southsea.

The church will rake in thousands of pounds a year if the controversial proposal is approved.

But St Jude's is just yards from a residential area and Portsmouth High School and parents fear the long-term health of over 200 of its youngest pupils will be at risk.

Mary Williams, whose six-year-old daughter Eleanor is a pupil at the school, said: 'Although the jury's out on whether any damage is caused by these phone masts there is no evidence to prove these things are safe. Why take a risk with our children's health for the profit of the multi-billion pound telecommunications industry?

'Fifty years from now I don't want my daughter getting ill because the church wants some money.'

Portsmouth High School is to write to church bosses to air their concerns.

Senior school head Jenny Clough said: 'Steps should be taken to ensure my girls' health is maintained. Over 200 girls aged between three and 11 are less than 75 metres away from the proposed site.

Parochial Church Council vice-chairman Richard Portlock would not reveal exactly how much the church stood to make from the deal but said it was less than 10 per cent of it's annual budget of £100,000.

'We are required to take into account all relevant factors when making our decision and we will endeavour to do so.'

The Parochial Church Council was discussing plans behind closed doors today.

Rising Sea Levels Threaten Indian Islands

After a 10-year study in and around the Bay of Bengal, oceanographers say the sea is rising at 3.14 millimeters per year in the Sunderbans, against a global average of 2 mm, threatening low-lying areas of India and Bangladesh. "At least 15 islands have been affected, but erosion is widespread in other islands as well," said Sugato Hazra, an oceanographer at Jadavpur University in Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal.

A "media and research" company called eSapience has filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit against the California investment firm C.V. Starr & Co., helmed by Maurice "Hank" Greenberg. Not the typical public relations firm, eSapience, run by conservative, free-market academics, buys and manipulates influence at the very highest levels of academic and intellectual circles. The suit brings to light the extremes to which a group of right-wingers have taken the phrase "marketplace of ideas," and exposes the lengths to which some will go to buy intellectual influence.

The over-under on the Alberto Gonzales resignation is now a matter of days

Going, going, gone

The American Prospect
by Terence Samuel

The over-under on the Alberto Gonzales resignation is now a matter of days. But whatever it is, take the under. He’s done. He may not make it through the weekend, as more damaging e-mails continue to emerge showing both the administration’s arrogance in removing U.S. attorneys and its deceit in covering up its reasons for the firings. The demise of Gonzales may signal the final unraveling of the Bush White House, because at the heart of this particular scandal are two commodities most prized by this administration: loyalty to the president and a ruthless expediency in the service of political goals. Together, these two have made the Bush White House both successful and fearsome. But based on what we have seen so far, Gonzales’ chief offenses may turn out to be these exact characteristics...

The original American foreign policy

LewRockwell.Com
by US Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)

03/16/07

I have written before about the critical need for Congress to reassert its authority over foreign policy, and for the American people to recognize that the Constitution makes no distinction between domestic and foreign matters. Policy is policy, and it must be made by the legislature and not the executive. But what policy is best? How should we deal with the rest of the world in a way that best advances proper national interests, while not threatening our freedoms at home? I believe our founding fathers had it right when they argued for peace and commerce between nations, and against entangling political and military alliances. In other words, noninterventionism. Noninterventionism is not isolationism. Nonintervention simply means America does not interfere militarily, financially, or covertly in the internal affairs of other nations. It does not mean that we isolate ourselves; on the contrary, our founders advocated open trade, travel, communication, and diplomacy with other nations...

Hicks was forcibly sedated, says lawyer

DAVID HICKS was left frightened and confused after being forcibly sedated at Guantanamo Bay last month and then told of new charges the prosecution wanted to bring against him, his US military defence lawyer, Major Michael Mori, has said.

//www.smh.com.au/articles/2007/03/18/1174152882379.html



A man of extraordinary courage

Unknown News
by Robyn Shelly

04/09/07

Michael Mori was appointed Defense counsel for David Hicks in November 2003, some two years after Hicks had first been interned. … Michael Mori is indeed something of a modern day Atticus Finch. His passion for the law is apparent in his defense of his client, and his defense of the law itself, which was under attack from men who wished to subvert the accepted standards of legality for their own ends. Whatever one might think of Major Mori’s client (and I for one think he was fairly naive and foolish to end up in Afghanistan), there is no doubt that the lawyer in this case was not a military stooge; he was man who has a deep commitment and, indeed, love of his chosen profession. His integrity, honour and compassion were apparent as he spoke out against the inherent bias of the proposed military tribunal system. What cost this might bring to the Major in years to come is yet to be seen, but the vitriol shown by Colonel ‘Mo’ Davis, the chief US prosecutor, makes it hard to believe that Major Mori has not killed his own career in the process of defending Hicks...

Thousands of demonstrators protesting the fourth anniversary of the war in Iraq marched on the Pentagon yesterday, jeered along the way by large numbers of angry counter-protesters. Organizers billed the antiwar rally as marking the 40th anniversary of the 1967 march on the Pentagon. At times, verbal clashes during the cold and blustery day demonstrated that the bitter divisions of four decades ago sparked by Vietnam are very much alive in the debate over Iraq...

Our young people today are having to cope with the highest level of pulsed microwave radiation than any generation before them

Date: Mon, 19 Mar 2007 03:27:14 EDT
to: breakfasttv@bbc.co.uk
CC: chichesterj@parliament.uk

We are hearing today of yet another stabbing involving a teenager, which has sadly resulted in the loss of another young life. The BBC are asking for comments on what we can do to address this rapidly growing problem; experts will be wheeled in to approach the problem from every angle.

It is only a couple of weeks since we were told that many of the young people served with ASBO's are suffering from mental illness and have no comprehension of what is expected of them. Then just a couple of weeks before that we were told that British children are the "unhappiest" in Europe. We can see that borne out by the statistics on the number of young people dependant on antidepressant drugs and - alarmingly, the number of suicides in this age group.

I believe that we are ignoring one major factor in all of these "investigations". Our young people today are having to cope with the highest level of pulsed microwave radiation than any generation before them. They are possily being bombarded 24/7 from a growing plethora of wireless devices - many specifically for the use of children (as in the wireless networking in schools). They will be sitting all day in a level of emissions which would be unlawful in many other countries (many schools have mobile phone masts within the school grounds - or within metres of the perimeter). Many homes now have DECT or mobile phones, instead of a landline - and, of course, we are still witnessing the targetting of young people by the Mobile Phone Operators - despite official DOH advice (in their leaflet "Mobile Phones & Health) that children under 16 should only use these devices for emergency purposes.

My MP, Sir Patrick Cormack, obtained a supply of these leaflets for us when we wanted to distribute them in our village and had trouble accessing them - but they are now seven years old and a replacement is long overdue. There is much independent scientific evidence to warrant action. Expert Government advice has indicated that "we do not know what effect this relatively new technology will have on the developing brains and immune systems of our young people". Despite this, nothing is being done to highlight this risk - neither by the HPA nor any of the childrens' charities who are dedicated to protecting the welfare of this vulnerable group.

It is imperative that a precautionary priniciple is adopted when uncertain technology is introduced - otherwise we are doomed to continue to repeat the mistakes we have made in the past with tobacce, asbestos, thalidomide, BSE (to name but a few).

The BBC, like most other media sources, have firmly hitched their wagon to the wireless star - the preferred option of contact now appears to be text. We are being encouraged to watch the news on our mobile phones, and many of the reports from around the world are brought to our screens via mobile phone. However, I would hope that this "marriage" will not prevent a serious investigation into the growing likelihood of serious health risks of the widespread use of mobile technology.
