Arctic Ice Melt Killing Polar Bears

According to The Associated Press, "Two-thirds of the world's polar bears will be killed off by 2050 - and the entire population gone from Alaska - because of thinning sea ice from global warming in the Arctic, government scientists forecast Friday."

Mrs. Ashcroft and the Hospital "Tongue" Lashing

Brian Ross and Maddy Sauer reported in a segment aired on ABC News Nightline Thursday evening that former Justice Department official Jack Goldsmith "says he found the legal basis for the country's most important counterterrorism policies, including those for the CIA's interrogation techniques, to be deeply flawed and sloppily reasoned" when he started his job as head of the DOJ's Office of Legal Counsel in the fall of 2003.

The Shock Doctrine

In The Guardian UK, Naomi Klein says, "What [is] happening in Iraq and New Orleans was not a post-September 11 invention. Rather, these bold experiments in crisis exploitation were the culmination of three decades of strict adherence to the shock doctrine."


THE SHOCK DOCTRINE - Have you heard of "Year Zero." It's essentially the idea of a totally fresh start. But it has shown up in grotesquely twisted form referring to the creation a harsh free-market economic mechanism in a society that would otherwise reject it, but has been damaged or destroyed by natural disaster or military attack? The more destruction, the easier the makeover.

Naomi Klein on the Shock Doctrine

In a wide-ranging interview with Truthout's Geoffrey Millard, bestselling author and investigative journalist Naomi Klein discusses the catastrophic failures that have ensued from the free-market reforms that have spread throughout the world over the past few decades. Klein explains that the rise in "disaster capitalism" is also leading to an increase in worldwide violence that will only get worse. She refers to the issue as "The Shock Doctrine," which is also the title of her groundbreaking new book.

As a Report Draws Near, Democrats Ready a Stance

David M. Herszenhorn reports in Saturday's edition of The New York Times that "leading Democrats in the House and the Senate maneuvered Friday to portray" a report about the status of the Iraq war General David Petraeus is scheduled to discuss before Congress Monday as wholly unreliable because the Bush administration has cherry-picked the data to support its "political objectives."

The Debate Over the Health Effects of Wireless

Sunday, September 9, 2007; Page N02

It's hard to imagine life without cellphones, BlackBerrys and WiFi. But some people believe the technology that makes modern life so convenient may be hazardous to our health.

Mobile communications devices, along with microwave ovens, power lines, cellphone towers and wireless base stations, generate electromagnetic fields, a form of low-frequency radiation. EMFs have been studied as a possible factor in conditions from cancer to cognitive damage, particularly in teenagers and children, who have thinner skulls and still-developing brains.

Global Warming Threatens Nation's Public Lands

Juliet Eilperin for The Washington Post reports that a Congressional investigative report to be released this week says the federal government needs to do a better job addressing how climate change is transforming the hundreds of millions of acres under its watch.

Recession Fear Rises As Jobs Growth Ends

David Leonhardt and Jeremy W. Peters write in The New York Times: "The economy shed 4,000 jobs between July and August.... It was the first employment decline since 2003, when the job market was still struggling to emerge from a long slump in the wake of the 2001 recession."

Are Petraeus and Westmoreland Birds of a Feather?

Ray McGovern writes for Truthout, "Indeed, over the past several weeks, the president has been punctuating virtually every other public sentence with 'General Petraeus' or 'David.' It is as though Bush is expecting what might be called a 'Petraeus ex machina' to extricate himself from the deep hole Cheney and he have dug together."

USDA Proposes Further De-regulation of GMOs

ISIS Press Release 08/09/07

The proposed changes make the regulatory regime even more permissive. Prof. Joe Cummins and Dr. Mae-Wan Ho

This article was submitted to the USDA on behalf of ISIS. Please circulate widely to your policy-makers

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has proposed changes to regulations on Introduction of Organisms and Products Altered or Produced Through Genetic Engineering, available for public comment before 11 September 2007 at:

APHIS is seeking public comment on its draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) presenting alternatives in a series of questions. The questions and our answers are given below.

Question 1: Should APHIS continue to regulate GE [genetically engineered] organisms solely on the basis of potential risks as plant pests, or should they also be regulated based on other potential risks such as those for noxious weeds and biological control organisms?

Answer: APHIS should more realistically take into account the risk of transgenic contamination of crops and weedy relatives of the crops. The detrimental economic impact of transgenic contamination as well as the toxic potential, especially of pharmaceutical products or transgenic biopolymers, must be evaluated. Crops modified with genes to enhance energy production may genetically contaminate food crops. Finally, transgenic contamination should be treated as any other environmental pollution. APHIS should take into account the strong evidence that transgenic contamination is unavoidable [1] (GM Contamination At 21 km and Farther. No Co-Existence Possible, SiS 35)

Question 2: Should a new system of risk-based permit categories be designed to deal with new products and new concerns?

Answer: It is imperative that crops such as food crops modified to produce pharmaceutical proteins or crops destined for energy production should be evaluated by criteria that are different from those of food crops in recognition that the transgenes pose unique dangers to health. The same applies to...

A Chance to Make Votes Count

The editors of The New York Times write: "Electronic voting has been an abysmal failure. Computer experts have done study after study showing that electronic voting machines, which are often shoddily made, can easily be hacked. With little effort, vote totals can be changed and elections stolen. In many recent elections, voters have complained of 'vote flipping,' in which touch-screen machines took votes cast for one candidate and gave them to an opponent."
