Schweiz setzt auf Regenwaldzerstörung, Landnahme und Hunger


Wir möchten Sie hinweisen auf den lesenswerten Artikel in FOCUS ONLINE mit Bericht zu BP Aktion von Rettet den Regenwald:

Kampf um das Korn von morgen

In bevölkerungsreichen Ländern werden die Anbauflächen für Nahrungsmittel knapp, zudem soll Biosprit künftig den Treibstoffbedarf der Welt zumindest teilweise decken. Deshalb versuchen manche Staaten, Land in Entwicklungsländern zu kaufen oder zu pachten, um dort die gewünschten Pflanzen für den Eigenverbrauch anbauen zu können.

Phone mast didn't get our backing at all

Published Date: 07 January 2010

AS the four Councillors for Ponteland we are deeply concerned about the possible erection of a phone mast next to the school in Darras Hall and right in the middle of a residential area. We are asking serious questions of Northumberland County Council in this matter.

The never-ending War on Terrorism

The meaning of ists

by Jacob Sullum

One of the Bush administration’s most pernicious legacies is the never-ending War on Terrorism, a perpetual state of emergency that supposedly authorizes the president to break the law, abridge civil liberties, and ignore due process, all under a cloak of secrecy. Last week former Vice President Dick Cheney accused the Obama administration of forsaking Bush’s War on Terrorism. If only it were true...

Is Dick Cheney unpatriotic?

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland


Former Vice President Dick Cheney has been railing against President Barack Obama for being weak-kneed on terrorism and failing to interdict the BVD bomber’s recent attempt to blow up a plane. Cheney seems to want us to put aside his own administration’s abysmal record on the subject — ignoring warnings and failing to prevent the most deadly foreign attack on U.S. soil in American history, failing to prevent the similar shoe bomber’s attempt to bring down an aircraft, and using 9/11 to launch invasions of Muslim countries that led to an increase in terrorist attacks worldwide — and thus tries to make us believe Republicans are better at countering terrorism than Democrats because, well, they’re Republicans...

That’ll show’em

Center for a Stateless Society
by Kevin Carson


As Matt Yglesias has argued, every Al Qaeda attack via the civil aviation system — even the failed ones — leads to new security measures that impose additional real costs on air travel and the sectors of the American economy dependent on it. Richard Reid tried to smuggle a bomb in his shoe, and everyone now has to take their shoes off before boarding. Someone was rumored to be planning an attack with liquid explosives, so now everyone’s searched for shampoo bottles. If Al Qaeda were really smart, they’d have somebody smuggle a bomb in their rectum; the resulting TSA policy of rectal searches for everybody would shut down the entire airline industry and throw the U.S. the rest of the way into a Great Depression. Every time the U.S. national security state reacts to another terrorist incident, you can almost hear Bin Laden and his cronies giggling in a cave somewhere: ‘Look! They’re doing it! The stupid schmucks are doing it! Hee hee hee!’...

The Weird Factor

by Justin Raimdondo


The Weird Factor seems to intensify whenever there is some significant event in our ongoing ‘war on terrorism,’ or whatever they’re calling it these days. My longtime readers will be familiar with my theory of how this works. Briefly: on Sept. 11, 2001, the impact of those airliners as they hit the Twin Towers sent us careening into an alternative dimension where up is down, right is left, and torture is the American Way — in short we landed in Bizarro World, where we have been trapped ever since. The post-9/11 cognitive shift that heralded our entry into this alternate dimension is amplified around these incidents, and certainly the most recent — the midair antics of the Undie Bomber — underscores the Weird Factor at its absolute weirdest...

The Mushroom Effect

By Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich
