PLANT CLOSING . . . . . . December 27, 2007 - A Malton plant that recycles meat trays and other products made of polystyrene is closing.
Opened in 1991 and operated by the Canadian Polystyrene Recycling Association (CPRA), the plant has been badly hurt by the healthy Canadian dollar and the fact many municipalities don't allow their residents to put polystyrene in blue boxes for recycling. ......THIS TYPE OF INDUSTRY IS DESPERATELY NEEDED IN THE TORONTO,CANADA . . .REGION . . .NOW . . . . .TONNES OF TRASH HAS NOWHERE TO GO . . .OTHER THAN . . .DREADED . . .LAND . .FILL . . .AND ITS . . . .PROBLEMS.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . ..If we consume less Chinese emissions will necessarily go down. Proof? WalMart is the biggest retailer in the world and a majority of its goods (84%) come from China.In other words, Chinese emissions don't happen in a vaccuum: they are a direct result of over-consumption in Canada and the U.S. for goods we don't need with money we don't have (i.e. credit cards). We can lower our emissions and China's at the same time by buying less crap.

ALL FOR THE LOVE

By HENRY C. JACKSON, Associated Press Writer Mon Dec 17, 4:02 PM ET
JEFFERSON, Iowa - Because of rising demand for ethanol, American farmers are growing more corn than at any time since World War II. And sea life in the Gulf of Mexico is paying the price.

.... .....TO . . REPLACE . . GASOLINE . . WE . . GROW . . .CORN


The nation's corn crop is fertilized with millions of pounds of nitrogen-based fertilizer. And when that nitrogen runs off fields in Corn Belt states, it makes its way to the Mississippi River and eventually pours into the Gulf, where it contributes to a growing "dead zone" — a 7,900-square-mile patch so depleted of oxygen that fish, crabs and shrimp suffocate.
The dead zone was discovered in 1985 and has grown fairly steadily since then, forcing fishermen to venture farther and farther out to sea to find their catch. For decades, fertilizer has been considered the prime cause of …

SOUTH KOREA + CO2

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .As a result, South Korea too will have to prepare to reduce greenhouse gases. Until recently, the country had no obligation as it was classified as a developing nation. But as the world’s ninth largest greenhouse gas emitter and the world's 11th largest economy, the country is expected to face pressure from developed countries to set a higher target. "We need to replace the current carbon energy-based economic structure with a structure using low carbon, clean energy technologies,” said Choi Jae-chul, the director general of the International Economic Affairs Bureau at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
South Korea will find it virtually impossible to continue its free ride. According to the 2004 UN Development Program report, South Korea ranked ninth in the world in carbon dioxide emission, recording a staggering 93 percent increase in emissions since 1990, the third highest after China (103 percent) and India (97 percent) in the top …

NUKE SAFETY

Dec 16, 2007 04:30 AM Thomas Walkom
What's the point of a nuclear regulator that can be bypassed when it proves inconvenient? Federal MPs unanimously voted to overrule Canada's nuclear watchdog last week. They said it was to protect the public. The real reason seems to be that they couldn't bear to break up their six-week Christmas holidays.
At issue is the federal Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd.'s Chalk River nuclear reactor. It uses weapons-grade uranium to produce medical isotopes. It's also 50 years old.
Only five plants in the world produce isotopes. Atomic Energy of Canada, or AECL, sells its output to MDS Nordion, a private company with a lock on the North American market.
So when AECL announced last month that it was shutting down its Chalk River reactor for safety reasons, there was some consternation in both the corporate and medical worlds.
The dispute between AECL and its regulator, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, turns on the issue of backup power. Th…

Bali and Ottawa – On the closing day of the UN climate talks in Bali, Canada and the United States were jointly awarded the “Colossal Fossil” award by a global network of over 400 environmental organizations.

NUCLEAR MEDICINE POLITICS

Dec 13, 2007 04:30 AM peter calamai science reporter
Concern over the shortage of medical isotopes is not the only reason the Harper government has chosen to make Canada a nuclear safety outlaw, and it may not even be the overriding one.
Two other concerns likely figure in the government's decision to do an end run around the country's nuclear safety watchdog – the impending privatization of Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. (AECL), a federal Crown corporation, and getting regulatory approval for a new generation of Candu reactors.
The prospects for both are improved by undermining the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, the independent body that regulates all nuclear matters in the country, from the Pickering power reactor to the radioactive tritium that makes exit signs glow. . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . .. .THE TORONTO STAR NEWSPAPER HAS A MORE ACCURATE ASSESMENT OF THE RECENT CONTROVERSY ABOUT THE NUCLEAR MEDICINE ISOTOPES . . . . . . . .

YANGTZE(CHANG JIANG) RIVER

The Amazon may be larger, the Nile longer, but no river flows through the lives of as many people as the Yangtze, known in China as the Chang Jiang.
Despite the spectacular views, for many it brings back memories of bitterness and pain.
Zhang Zheng Jun now lives with his wife in one room overlooking the river, his only belongings spilling out of a suitcase.
In March he was forcibly relocated - his home demolished to make way for a bridge over the new reservoir created by China's Three Gorges Dam.
Zhang is angry about his treatment by the authoritiesWhen he refused to accept the government's compensation offer he was arrested and his house torn down.
Up to four million people may lose their homes before the project is completed in 2009.
More than 1.5 million people have already been forcibly resettled, but many complain they have yet to see any compensation. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .MILLIONS OF UNTOLD STORIES ALONG THE RIVER . . . . . . . . .IT'S A SA…

LIFE CYCLE OF CARS

Look at the life-cycle of cars: minerals extracted from the ground produce toxic mine tailings, a massive amount of energy is used to produce a single car, arable land and forests are destroyed to make roads, oil extraction industries pollute the sea and earth to produce the fuel cars need, wars are fought to secure oil hegemony, CO2 is burned by cars causing global warming and lethal smog, millions of people are run over and injured in car accidents, road rage and traffic jams less the quality of lives of citizens, insidious advertising by car companies dominates public spaces (called 'mind pollution'), needed housing is displaced by roads (as in NYC), cars at the end of their life cycle become waste (as in the photo above). . . .. .. . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. .. . . . .. ..

"MY OYSTERS ARE ALL DEAD"

SHINDURI BEACH, South Korea - Chung Hwan-hyang surveyed the damage from South Korea's worst oil spill, saddened by the knowledge that the oyster farm she and her husband ran for 30 years was lost.

"My oysters are all dead," the 70-year-old woman said Sunday as she and thousands of others cleaned foul-smelling oil from Shinduri Beach. "I cried and cried last night. I don't know what to do."
Some 2.7 million gallons of crude gushed into the ocean after a collision Friday between a barge and a supertanker carrying more than 260,000 tons of crude oil.
For Chung and other residents of Taean County, nearly 100 miles southwest of Seoul, the spill brought despair and shock at how the pollution shattered lives and businesses. . . . . . . . . . . .THE AREA WHERE THE COLLISION CAUSED OIL SPILL OCCURED (IS ?)

GREEN JOBS

Thursday December 6 2007
By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent
NUSA DUA, Indonesia, Dec 6 (Reuters) - Climate change is creating millions of "green jobs" in sectors from solar power to biofuels that will slightly exceed layoffs elsewhere in the economy, a U.N. report said on Thursday.
Union experts at U.N. climate talks in Bali, Indonesia, said the findings might ease worries among many workers that tougher environmental standards could mean an overall loss of jobs for many countries.
"Millions of new jobs are among the many silver, if not indeed gold-plated, linings on the cloud of climate change," Achim Steiner, head of the U.N. Environment Programme (UNEP) said in a statement.
"New research reveals that these jobs are not for just the middle classes -- the so-called 'green collar' jobs -- but also for workers in construction, sustainable forestry and agriculture, engineering and transportation," he said.
The study of "Green Jobs" arou…

OIL SPILL KOREA

Image
An oil tanker off the west coast of South Korea has been hit by a barge, causing thousands of tonnes of oil to spill into the Yellow Sea, South Korea's maritime ministry says.

The collision at about 7:30am local time (2230 GMT) on Thursday left holes in three containers aboard the Hong Kong-registered Hebei Spirit, a ministry official said.

Lee Jang-hoon said the barge ship was being towed and "collided with the oil tanker at anchor, breaching the cargo section and leaking crude oil".

He said that because the ship had tilted slightly "it's unlikely there will be huge additional spills".

The 146,000-tonne tanker was struck while at anchor off Daesan port in the Taean region.
There were no human casualties in the accident, but the extent of its potential damage to communities or wildlife in the area was not immediately clear, another ministry official said.The maritime ministry said the Hebei Spirit had already leaked about 10,800 tonnes of crude oil into the sea …

The province is letting development run roughshod over protection of invaluable natural resources, Ontario's green watchdog says.
The region around Toronto is being decimated by expanding suburbs, highways and gravel pits, despite creation of the GTA Greenbelt and regulations to control urban sprawl, Environmental Commissioner Gordon Miller says in his annual report, to be released today.
In the North, lack of planning and reliance on policies that give mining companies virtually unfettered access to the fragile wilderness threaten to destroy what Miller calls an "ecological treasure." . . . . . . . . . . . ..THANKS TO GORDON MILLER FOR THIS IMPORTANT ANNUAL REPORT . . . . . . .AND ALSO THANKS TO THE NEWSPAPERS FOR THE ARTICLES (ABOVE CLIP TORONTO STAR) . . . .. .. . .. .. . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . .THIS REPORT IS VERY TIMELY AS IT COMES WHEN THE BALI ECOLOGY CONFERENCE IS IN SESSION IN INDONE…
