NUCLEAR POWER = NOT CLEAN

"The next UN protocol on climate change must be truly global," Mr. Harper said. "It must include binding targets for all the world's major emitters, including China and the United States.


"We will never see the United States ratify a protocol that does not require genuinely global action."


Mr. Harper spoke to U.S. President George W. Bush by telephone last Friday morning and, according to PMO officials, the two discussed climate change.


Mr. Harper told the business crowd today that nuclear energy must play a key role as a replacement for other power sources, such as coal-fired electricity plants, which produce greenhouse gas emissions.


"As the largest producer of uranium, we can contribute to the renaissance of nuclear energy, a no-emissions source that will be expanding here in Britain and around the world," Mr. Harper said. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .THE ABOVE NEWS SNIPPET FROM NATIONAL POST MAY 29-2008 . . .QUO…

jailed skate boarder

May 15, 2008

A Canadian skateboarder has been jailed for refusing to stay off city streets, thus spotlighting how municipalities push people to walk or cycle yet bylaws leash them to their cars.

Lee Breen, 25, was ticketed in August 2007 for skateboarding on the streets of Fredericton City in easternmost Canada but refused to pay the fine. A judge ordered him to jail for five days.

He turned himself in to police at midday Wednesday.

"The city says it wants its citizens to find alternative forms of transport, so I did," Breen said outside Fredericton city hall before his arrest. "I completely bought into the 'green lifestyle'.

"I run a petrol-free lawn care company and I don't drive. And now they're putting me in jail for embracing an alternative form of transport that cuts down on CO2 emissions."

City officials say skateboarding in traffic is a dangerous for Breen and other road users, despite him wearing a helmet, staying off pavements and using han…

WORST DROUGHT SPAIN

Barcelona forced to import drinking water.





The water tanker is the first of six that will carry drinking water to Barcelona


Spain's worst drought in decades has forced the city of Barcelona to begin shipping in drinking water in an unprecedented effort to avoid water restrictions before the start of the holiday season.

A ship carrying 19,000 cubic metres of water from nearby Tarragona docked in Barcelona's port on Tuesday morning.




A second vessel from Marseille in France is scheduled to arrive in the coming days.

The port city on Spain's Mediterranean coast is among the areas hardest hit by the worst springtime drought in the country since records began 60 years ago.

DRY OIL WELLS

Image
. . . . . . . .DAISETTA, Texas (AP) — Geologists said a 260-foot-deep sinkhole that grew to the length of three football fields over just two days seemed to be slowing down Thursday, but that it could take months before it's clear whether surrounding areas are stable.

The 900-foot-long sinkhole, with crumbling dirt around its edges resembling sharp teeth, has swallowed up oil tanks and barrels, tires, telephone poles and several vehicles in Daisetta, a once-booming oil town of about 1,000 residents about 60 miles northeast of Houston.

THIS LARGE "POT HOLE" IN TEXAS IS ONLY ONE OF THE MANY DAMAGING SIDE EFFECTS ABOUT OIL DRILLING THAT OUR AUTOMOBILE ADDICTED SOCIETY HAS ENCOURAGED.

Tailing ponds currently cover 50 sq. km in surface area.6. Suncor has reclaimed only 9% of the land it has mined since 1967.7. Syncrude has reclaimed only 22% of the land it has mined.8. None of the reclaimed land by either Syncrude or Suncor has been certified as reclaimed by the Alberta Government.9. 3,000 sq. km. of boreal forest is leased to oilsands developers.10. 35,680 sq. km. of boreal forest is leased for deep oilsands development.
