Die US-Kritik hat Nordkorea nach eigenen Angaben in der Einsicht bestärkt, die Gespräche über ein Ende seines Atomprogramms nicht wieder aufnehmen zu können.

"Was Cheney zu einer Zeit äußerte, in der die Frage der Sechs-Länder-Gespräche oben auf der Tagesordnung steht, bedeutet nicht weniger als Nordkorea mitzuteilen, nicht zu den Gesprächen zurückzukehren", zitierte die offizielle nordkoreanische Nachrichtenagentur KCNA einen Ministeriumssprecher. Nordkorea sei dennoch weiter bereit, die Nuklearverhandlungen aufzunehmen, falls die US-Vertreter ihre Bemerkungen zurücknähmen.

02.Jun.2005 Bush Administration Promotes Global Conflicts by Rewarding Allies”: The report concludes by noting that the gravest danger stemming from USA weapons sales is the impact on the image, credibility and security of America.

02.Jun.2005 Russia promises to act if weapons put in space : The Russian Minister for Defence, Sergei Ivanov, has threatened retaliatory steps if any country deploys weapons in space.

02.Jun.2005 Post-Mortem for the 4th amendment by Mike Whitney
The Senate Intelligence Committee is working behind closed doors to expand the powers of the Patriot Act + deliver another withering blow to the 4th amendment.

(Announcements) MR. RUSSERT: More of our discussion on the threat and prevention of nuclear terrorism with Nunn, Lugar, Kean, Hamilton and Thompson after this brief station break. (Announcements)

MR. RUSSERT: And we are back. We've been talking about controlling the source + this underscores it. Here's from the September 11th commission report.

"A nuclear bomb can be built with a relatively small amount of nuclear material. A trained nuclear engineer with an amount of highly enriched uranium or plutonium about the size of a grapefruit or an orange, together with commercially available material, could fashion a nuclear device that would fit into a van like the one Ramzi Yousef parked in the garage of the World Trade Center in 1993. Such a bomb would level Lower Manhattan."

And here's a scene from "Last Best Chance," a conversation between the national security adviser, the chief of staff and the secretary of Homeland Security. Let's watch.

(Videotape, "Last Best Chance"):

01.Jun.2005 Nuke's a-comin' Meet the Press devoted an episode to the likelihood of a nuclear attack within the USA. Iran + North Korea are, naturally, labelled the "most dangerous actors."

The panelists do not discuss Al Qaeda's documented interest in creating a portable nuclear device. We are being prepared .URL:
What we have here, then, is the sad spectacle of an old man being manipulated.
For the record, it seems to me that if anyone proposes to identify Deep Throat, or to identify the lead singer in the choir of sources subsumed by the identity of Throat, they must meet a very basic criterion.

That is, they must demonstarate, at a minimum, that their candidate met repeatedly + secretly with Bob Woodward. (Throat is obviously Woodward's creation. I don't think Bernstein would know him from a bale of hay.)
The only person who meets that criterion, to my knowledge, is Robert Bennett. Now one of the most powerful men in the USA Senate, Bennett was President of the Robert R. Mullen Company 00.000.1972- .

This was the CIA front for which Howard Hunt worked. (It was also the Washington representative of the Howard Hughes organization.)

As I reported in *Secret Agenda*, Bennett's CIA case officer, Martin Lukoskie, drafted a memo to his boss, Eric Eisenstadt, reporting on his monthly debriefing of Bennett after the Watergate arrests.

According to Eisenstadt, Bennett told him that he, Bennett, had "made a backdoor entry to the Washington Post through Edward Bennett Williams' office," and that he, Bennett, was feeding stories to Bob Woodward, who was "suitably grateful." (Williams was the Post's attorney + attorney, also, for the Democratic National Committee.)
Woodward's gratefulness was manifest in the way he kept the CIA, in general + the Robert R. Mullen Company, in particular, out of his stories.

(I obtained the Lukoskie memo under the Freedom of Information Act. Eric Eisenstadt's reaction to that memo, which I also obtained under FOIA, was considered so secret that it was delivered by hand to then-CIA Director Richard Helms.URL:
New York - Nach der Ablehnung der EU- Verfassung in den Niederlanden ist der Euro am Abend auf ein neues Acht-Monats-Tief zum Dollar gefallen.

Die Gemeinschaftswährung sank Reuters-Daten zufolge auf 1,2211 Dollar, nachdem eine erste Prognose eine deutliche Mehrheit gegen die Verfassung zeigte.

Bereits nach dem negativen Ausgang des französischen Referendums am Sonntag hatte der Euro Verluste hinnehmen müssen.

02.Jun.2005 CIA widens war on terror with secret flights : Behind a surprisingly thin cover of rural hideaways, front companies + shell corporations that share officers who appear to exist only on paper, the CIA has rapidly expanded its air operations since 2001 as it has pursued + questioned terrorism suspects around the world.

31.May 2005 A few will recall that
Woodward had lunch with the aged Felt in 1999, perhaps to ask for permission to reveal all. Carl Bernstein's son once blurted out to friends that Felt was Throat.

Nixon himself suspected that Felt was leaking information; according to the transcript of a taped conversation, the soon-to-be-ex-president asked Haldeman if Felt was Catholic.

Haldeman responded "Jewish," a revelation Nixon seemed to consider revelatory.
Felt has long denied the Throat identification + once told a reporter: "I would have done better. I would have been more effective. Deep Throat didn't exactly bring the White House crashing down, did he?" URL:

Eine Untersuchung des im letzten Monat bekannt gewordenen Unfalls mit 83.000 Litern "verlorener", mit Plutonium, Uran und Spaltprodukten kontaminierter Flüssigkeit, die unbemerkt in einen Tank flossen, brachte für Betreiber BNG hoch peinliche Details zu Tage. Dazu gehört nicht nur die schiere, schwer nicht zu bemerkende Menge, die abfließen konnte, ohne dass das jemand bemerkte. Dazu gehört auch, dass die Verrohrung der Anlage anscheinend gut neun Monate lang unbemerkt vor sich hin triefte.
Dass aber "die Hälfte des Inhalts eines Olympia-Schwimmbeckens" an hochtoxischem, strahlendem Material von einem kaputten Rohr in einen so per Unfall zweckentfremdeten Tank tropfen konnte, sei "der schlimmste britische Atomunfall seit 13 Jahren", kommentierte der "Independent". Auch die International Atomic Energy Authority klassifizierte den Unfall als "ernst" und verortete ihn auf Rang Drei ihrer siebenstelligen Skala für Nuklearunfälle. Die britische Nuclear Decommissioning Agency schloss das Werk vorerst. Ab Montag soll nun versucht werden, die Plutonium-Plörre wieder dahin zurück zu pumpen, wo sie hin gehört.
29.May 2005
Sicher ist auch, dass die atomare Wiederaufbereitungsanlage immer wieder in den Schlagzeilen landet: Sei es, wegen angeblicher Leukämie-Cluster im Umland, strahlenden Fischen aus der irischen See oder - wie Mitte Februar bekannt wurde - weil ihr im letzten Jahr scheinbar 29,6 Kilogramm Plutonium abhanden gekommen waren.
Das wäre zwar genug Material für den Bau von rund sieben Atombomben, sei aber letztlich nicht der Aufregung wert, versichert BNG: Natürlich gehe der Plutonium-Schwund auf ein "Buchhaltungsproblem" zurück, sei also rein virtuell, ein reiner Rechenfehler. Der bewege sich im Bereich von deutlich unter einem %, wenn man ihn gegen die bewegte Gesamtmenge aufrechne + liege darum innerhalb der Toleranzen.
29.May 2005
Zudem hätten sich unter dem Dauerdruck der Verfolgung die Terrororganisationen selbst verändert: Al-Qaida sei heute nicht mehr das autokratisch gelenkte Werkzeug eines Bin Laden, sondern eine "formlose, diffuse und schwierig zu bekämpfende Organisation", heißt es in der "Washington Post". Die Zeitung zitiert unter anderem Bushs Terrorismusberater Fragos Townsend: "Der Feind hat sich natürlicherweise angepasst." Wie weiter gegen den organisierten Terrorismus vorzugehen sei, ist demnach längst Gegenstand einer lebhaften Debatte innerhalb des Bush-Kabinetts. Laut "Washington Post" herrschen in der US-Regierung unterschiedliche Ansichten darüber, ob die Gefährlichkeit von al-Qaida nun stark abgenommen habe oder gleich geblieben sei. Ein weiterer anonymer Regierungsbeamter wurde mit den Worten zitiert, dass nun ein "strategischer Ansatz zum Besiegen von gewaltsamem Extremismus" angestrebt werde.
Kritik aus Armee-Kreisen
Diese von einem anonymen Regierungsbeamten salopp "Phase zwei" getaufte, angestrebte neue Strategie müsse darauf abzielen, statt einzelne al-Qaida-Mitglieder zu jagen den gewaltsamen Extremismus an sich zu bekämpfen.

29.May 2005 Wie schätzt die Ölindustrie die Situation selbst ein?
Im Grunde wird die Krisensituation negiert, gelegentlich spricht jemand Klar
Mit den bestehenden Ölquellen sieht der Exxon Mobil Präsident Jon Thompson einen jährlichen Rückgang von 4-6%;

mit dem für 2015 geschätztem Bedarf muss die Ölproduktion dann zusätzlich 80% der momentanen Förderung höher liegen.
For example, we estimate that world oil + gas production from existing fields is declining at an average rate of about 4 - 6 % a year.

To meet projected demand in 2015, the industry will have to add about 100 million oil-equivalent barrels a day of new production. That's equal to about 80 % of today's production level.

In other words, by 2015, we will need to find, develop and produce a volume of new oil and gas that is equal to eight out of every 10 barrels being produced today.

The Koran is treated with care, but Iraqis, Afghanis, Muslims and Arabs can be beaten to death, have electric shock treatment administered to their genitals, have their faces smeared with fake menstrual blood, can be made to crawl while naked and chained wearing a dog’s collar and led on a leash by a wimpy female “soldier,” and can be forced into a river by Coalition heroes where non-swimmers are drowned. But this, by no means at all, should lead anyone to the erroneous conclusion that the great USA of America + its “duty-honor-country” military, would ever condone any display of contempt or disdain for the venerable Holy Koran!

Das Unternehmen ließ den Brief unbeantwortet. Zwei weitere Male, ist einer nun vorliegenden Klage gegen Yahoo zu entnehmen, versuchte Cecilia B. die Löschung des gefälschten Accounts zu erwirken - ohne Reaktion. Erst Ende März gab ihr laut Klageschrift eine PR-Mitarbeiterin von Yahoo das Versprechen, sie werde die Löschung der Dateien veranlassen. Dies geschah teilweise: Telefonnummer und Adresse verschwanden, Namen und Nacktbilder blieben im Netz.
Dagegen klagt nun Cecilia B. auf drei Millionen Dollar Schadenersatz. Die Klage ist nicht ganz einfach: Amerikanisches Recht schützt Internetunternehmen weitgehend vor juristischen Konsequenzen durch Veröffentlichungen Dritter. Cecila B.'s Anwälte wählten den Ansatz, gegen das gebrochene mündliche Versprechen der Unternehmensmitarbeiterin zu klagen, nicht gegen die ignorierten schriftzlichen Bitten um Datenlöschung.
Zu der kann Yahoo nach US-Recht nämlich gar nicht gezwungen werden. Im Communications Decency Act von 1996 heißt es: "Kein Provider oder Nutzer eines interaktiven Computerdienstes soll als Herausgeber oder Urheber der Information behandelt werden, die ein anderer Content Provider veröffentlicht hat." Im Klar Yahoo ist nicht verantwortlich dafür, wenn ein rachsüchtiger EX-Freund Nacktbilder seiner Verflossenen veröffentlicht.

Gute Aussichten für den umweltfreundlichen Ölbinder aus Getreide bestehen nach Ansicht der Wissenschaftler auch für den Einsatz an Land. Hier könnten herkömmliche Ölbinder abgelöst werden, die jährlich in einer Größenordnung von 20.000 Tonnen auf deutschen Straßen zum Einsatz kommen. Mit ersten praktischen Ergebnissen wird bis Ende kommenden Jahres gerechnet.

Immerhin gelangen nach Erhebungen der Umweltorganisation Greenpeace bei Tankerhavarien, Schiffsunfällen oder illegaler Entsorgung jährlich mehr als 100.000 Tonnen Erdöl in die Weltmeere. Die viel befahrenen Gebiete von Nord- und Ostsee sind demnach zusammen mit etwa 45.000 Tonnen betroffen. Während für ölverschmutzte Küstenregionen bereits effektive Sanierungsmethoden entwickelt wurden, erfolgt die Havariebekämpfung in Seen, Flüssen oder auf dem Meer bislang passiv, wie Gildhorn erläutert.

27.May 2005 Guantanamo: Pentagon räumt falsche Koran-Behandlung ein

27.May 2005 For just as in the 00.000.1950 s, the boots on the ground are running low. The global New Rome turns out to have exhausted its conventional power holding down just one country, Iraq. But the 2000s are not the 1950s. Eisenhower's overall goal was mainly defensive. He wanted no war, nuclear or conventional, and never came close to ordering a nuclear strike. By contrast, Bush's policy of preventive war is inherently activist and aggressive: The global strike option is not only for deterrence; it is for use.

A clash between the triumphal rhetoric of global domination and the sordid reality of failure in practice lies ahead. The Senate, on the brink of its metaphorical Armageddon, backed down. Would the President, facing defeat of his policies somewhere in the world, do likewise? Or might he actually reach for his nuclear option?

27.May 2005
Once again, the USA has assigned itself global ambitions. (Then it was containing Communism, now it is stopping "terrorism" and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.) Once again, the USA is fighting a limited war - the war in Iraq - + other limited wars are under discussion (against Iran, North Korea, Syria, etc.). And once again, nuclear arms appear to offer an all too tempting alternative.

Arkin comments that a prime virtue of the global strike option in the eyes of the Pentagon is that it requires no "boots on the ground."

And Everett Dolman, a professor at the Air Force School at Maxwell Air Force Base, recently commented to the San Francisco Chronicle that without space weaponry, "we'd face a Vietnam-style buildup if we wanted to remain a force in the world." URL:
27.May 2005
President Eisenhower adopted the doctrine of nuclear "massive retaliation," intended to prevent limited Communist challenges from ever arising.

And it was in reaction to the imbalance between local "peripheral" threats + the world-menacing "massive" nuclear threats designed to contain them that, in the Kennedy years, “the pendulum swung” back in the direction of conventional arms + a theory of "limited war" to go with them.

Meanwhile, nuclear arms were officially assigned the more restricted role of deterring attacks by other nuclear weapons - the posture of "mutual assured destruction." URL:
27.May 2005
The threat of first use under the auspices of the global strike option is indeed the latest incarnation of a policy born at that time. URL:
27.May 2005
These actions make operational a revolution in US nuclear policy.

It was foreshadowed by the Nuclear Posture Review Report of 2002, also widely ignored, which announced nuclear targeting of, among others, China, North Korea, Iraq, Iran, Syria and Libya.

The review also recommended new facilities for the manufacture of nuclear bombs and the study of an array of new delivery vehicles, including a new ICBM in 2020, a new submarine-launched ballistic missile in 2029 + a new heavy bomber in 2040. The review, in turn, grew out of Bush's broader new military strategy of pre-emptive war, articulated in the 2002 White House document, the National Security Strategy of the USA of America, which states, "We cannot let our enemies strike first." The extraordinary ambition of the Bush policy is suggested by a comment made in a Senate hearing in April by Linton Brooks, head of the National Nuclear Security Administration, who explained that the Defense Secretary wanted "bunker buster" nuclear bombs because "it is unwise for there to be anything that's beyond the reach of US power." URL:
27.May 2005
The order to enable the force, Arkin writes, was given by Bush [BGW968] in January 2003. In July 2004, Gen. Richard Myers, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, stated to Adm. James Ellis Jr., then-commander of Stratcom, "the President charged you to ‘be ready to strike at any moment's notice in any dark corner of the world' [and] that's exactly what you've done." And last fall, Lieut. Gen. Bruce Carlson, commander of the 8th Air Force, stated, "We have the capacity to plan and execute global strikes." URL:
27.May 2005
A metaphorical "nuclear option" -- the cutoff of debate in the Senate on judicial nominees -- has just been defused, but a literal nuclear option, called "global strike," has been created in its place. In a shocking innovation in American nuclear policy, recently disclosed in the Washington Post by military analyst William Arkin, the administration has created and placed on continuous high alert a force whereby the President can launch a pinpoint strike, including a nuclear strike, anywhere on earth with a few hours' notice. The senatorial "nuclear option" was covered extensively, but somehow this actual nuclear option -- a "full-spectrum" capability (in the words of the presidential order) with "precision kinetic (nuclear and conventional) and non-kinetic (elements of space and information operations)" -- was almost entirely ignored. URL:
27.May 2005 According to
Demetri Sevastopulo of the UK Financial Times, the Russian answer to the news in the New York Times piece was instantaneous and grim: "Russia would consider using force if necessary to respond if the US put a combat weapon into space, according to a senior Russian official."

Space domination -- meaning war-fighting in space -- is a form of Earthly madness. But the path of proliferation, once started down has its own mad logic. Bush's top officials have been stuck on global dominance since they took power. Dominance has just turned out to be a little harder to come by on Earth than advertised… but, ah, space… All those boys who grew up on sci-fi movies and moon shots, now have their moment. And a boy can always dream, can't he? URL:
27.May 2005 One thing can certainly be said: Where Star Wars went long ago, Bush administration fantasies are now heading. After all, what is a CAV, but a little "Death Star," that terrible, planet-destroying instrument of the on-screen Evil Empire. As
Theresa Hitchens of the Center for Defense Information pointed out in a recent article, "[O]rbiting 'death stars' to attack ground targets are being considered. Pete Teets, the former acting secretary of the USA Air Force has said: 'We haven't reached the point of strafing and bombing from space - nonetheless, we are thinking about those possibilities.'" URL:
27.May 2005
Let's put a label on these developments: Proliferation . In space as on Earth, the Bush strategists have an almost primal urge to cross strategic and weapons barriers and thresholds of all sorts + head into uncharted territory; or, as an old TV space opera used to put it, "boldly to go where no man has gone before." (On Star Trek , though, the voyages of the USS Enterprise were, at least theoretically, peaceful in nature + the announcement of the next destination didn't automatically end with an explosion.) URL:
27.May 2005 Call it Star Wars , parts VII-XXII; but last week, just as Revenge of the Sith was opening galaxy-wide - multiplexes on Tatooine alone were expected to pull in billions -- reporter Tim Weiner revealed
on the front page of the New York Times that a new presidential directive will soon essentially green-light the future USA militarization of space. (When, in 00.Dec.2001 , the administration withdrew from the Antiballistic Missile Treaty, which forbade the weaponization of space, it opened the way for exactly the kind of Pentagon R&D that now threatens to come to mutant fruition in the heavens.) Just three days before Weiner's piece appeared, military analyst William Arkin reported in the Washington Post that "[e]arly last summer, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld approved a top secret 'Interim Global Strike Alert Order,'" preparing the way for devastating attacks against hostile powers developing weapons of mass destruction, air strikes that could be carried out more or less on demand anywhere on the planet and, if so desired, included a "nuclear option."

These two actions don't represent separate worlds of planning. One of the imagined future weapons for Rumsfeld's "global strike" force, for instance, turns out to be a CAV (Common Aero Vehicle) which, from space, could theoretically hit any target on Earth with a massive dose of conventional munitions on half an hour's notice. Of this weapon, the Washington Post's Walter Pincus wrote, "The first-generation CAV, expected to be ready by 2010, will have ‘an incredible capability to provide the warfighter with a global reach capability against high payoff targets,' Gen. Lance W. Lord, commander of Air Force Space Command, told the House Armed Services Committee… The system could, Lord said, ‘deliver a conventional payload precisely on target within minutes of a valid command and control release order.'"

Such "global strike" space weaponry, while not (yet) nuclearized, would not be far off in impact. For instance, according to Weiner, one such weapon, Hypervelocity Rod Bundles (nicknamed "Rods from God"), aims "to hurl cylinders of tungsten, titanium or uranium from the edge of space to destroy targets on the ground, striking at speeds of about 7,200 miles an hour with the force of a small nuclear weapon." In this way, the boundaries between the previously almost unusable nuclear option and more conventional war-fighting options are slowly -- and quite consciously -- being blurred by the Bush administration.

Der Mann aus dem Eis hatte einen Bogen sowie ein Beil mit einem Schaft aus Eibenholz bei sich.

Anders als die Hopfenbuche bildet die Eibe ( Taxus baccata ) keine geschlossenen Waldbestände, sondern gedeiht im schattigen Unterwuchs anderer Laubbäume.

Sie ist ein typischer Baum ozeanisch getönter Klimata mit ausgeglichenen Temperaturen, hoher Luftfeuchtigkeit und geringer Frostwahrscheinlichkeit.

Besonders die Frostempfindlichkeit schränkt das Vorkommen der Eibe in den Alpentälern ein. Größere Bestände im weiteren Umfeld des Mannes aus dem Eis sind aus dem Etschtal zwischen Salurn + Meran bekannt.

25.May 2005 Today's must-read piece is by the reliable Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman, who continue to look into the outrageous Ohio pseudo-election overseen by GOP insider Ken Blackwell.
You may recall Sherole Eaton, the Hocking County election board staffer who discovered that a Triad computer "repairman" had swapped out a hard drive on a machine that allegedly suffered from a dead battery. Even worse,
According to a 03.Dec.2004 affidavit sworn by Eaton, the Triad technician "advised" the Hocking County Board of Elections' Republican Director Lisa Schwartze on how to "post a 'cheat sheet'" to make the recount match the officially reported election total. Eaton's affidavit figured in a lawsuit against the Ohio results filed by the Libertarian, Green and Democratic candidates.
Since no good deed goes unpunished, Eaton now stands in danger of losing her job.
23.May 2005 -In an exclusive interview- Schwartze told that "Sherole is on vacation."

When asked if Eaton had been fired, Schwartze commented that Eaton has until 30.Jun.2005 to resign or be fired + "that decision came from the Board."
At the Ohio Democratic Party's annual dinner, Eaton told the Free Press that she is not at liberty to discuss the situation, but that she is "a federal whistleblower" who sees the Board's action against her as "retaliation" for her affidavit revealing Triad's critical intrusion.

Never underestimate Blackwell's own lawlessness and rancid partisanship:
Under Ohio law, all election board members serve at Secretary of State Blackwell's pleasure. Cuyahoga Bureau of Elections director Michael Vu mentioned the letter at a Congressional hearing staged at the Ohio statehouse by Republican Congressman Bob Ney. Ney brought the hearing to Columbus in part because Blackwell refused to testify in Washington. The hearing was highlighted by angry, bitter exchanges between Blackwell and US Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, who co-introduced (with Senator Barbara Boxer of California) the historic Congressional resolution challenging the seating of the Ohio Electoral College delegation for Bush.
In his October letter Blackwell made it clear that any Election Board official, Republican or Democrat, who challenged Blackwell's decrees would be summarily removed. Election Board positions are well paid + Blackwell's threat erased widespread claims the presence of Democrats on Election Boards guaranteed that the election was administered in a neutral, bi-partisan manner.
In fact, with the club of a loss of substantial salaries, this leaked letter makes it clear Blackwell was running the election with an iron partisan hand + that claims of true bi-partisanship were strictly for show. When -- if -- justice returns to this land, Blackwell will be led from his offices in handcuffs. The man is a criminal. URL:

"Unsere bisherigen Befunde können auch als das genaue Gegenteil einer Klima-Entwarnung verstanden werden", sagt er. "Wenn wir alte Wälder nachweisen, wo heute Gletscher sind, bedeutet das doch vor allem eines: dass das Klima noch viel plötzlicher umschlagen kann als bislang angenommen."
25.May 2005
Wilfried Häberli vom Geografischen Institut der Universität Zürich zählt zu den Kritikern der Idee grüner Alpen. So extreme Warmphasen, wie Schlüchter sie postuliere, seien mit den Befunden aus Seesedimenten, Pollenanalysen und Eisbohrkernen nicht vereinbar. Tatsächlich sprechen die meisten Klimadaten dafür, dass es seit der Eiszeit nie wärmer war als heute; wie, so fragt sich dann, können in der Steinzeit die Alpen gletscherfrei gewesen sein? Genau dieser Widerspruch gibt der neuen Theorie ihre ungewollte Brisanz.
25.May 2005
Die Zirbelkiefer "TSC-160" starb vor etwa 6880 Jahren, in der frühen Jungsteinzeit. Und zwar irgendwo am Fuße des Piz Bernina; heute ruht dort ein mächtiger, undurchdringlicher Eispanzer.

25.May 2005
Mindestens zehnmal, so besagt die neue Hypothese, schrumpften die Gletscher seit dem Ende der letzten Eiszeit vor 10 000 Jahren teilweise fast bis zu ihrem völligen Verschwinden. "Zur Zeit der Römer zum Beispiel lagen die Gletscherzungen etwa 300 Meter höher als heute", so Jörin. Möglicherweise habe Hannibal auf seinem Heerzug über die Alpen nie selbst eine größere Eismasse zu sehen bekommen.

So friedlich wie heute war der Gusev-Krater des Mars in seiner frühen Geschichte nicht. "Es gab viel Wasser dort und viele Explosionen", berichtete der an der Nasa-Mission beteiligte Wissenschaftler Steve Squyres von der Cornell University auf einer Konferenz der American Geophysical Union in New Orleans. Der Mars-Rover "Spirit" habe in einer hügeligen Region des roten Planeten Gesteinsformationen gefunden, die vermutlich durch Ablagerungen mehrerer Schichten von nasser, angeschwemmter Vulkanasche entstanden.

Embryonen seien Leben und ein Geschenk und dürften nicht als Rohmaterial ausgebeutet werden, sagte der Präsident vor Anhängern einer christlichen Organisation in Washington. Deshalb sollten keine öffentlichen Mittel dafür verwendet werden, menschliches Leben zu zerstören. Bush prägte in diesem Zusammenhang den Begriff vom "Ersatzteilembryo".
Mit der Zustimmung zu dem Gesetzentwurf wird nach den Worten von Bush eine kritische Linie in der Ethik überschritten. Außerdem würden neue Anreize für die Zerstörung von sich entwickelndem menschlichen Lebens geschaffen.
25.May 2005
Nach Angaben des US-Nachrichtensenders CNN werden derzeit nur zehn % der befruchteten Eizellen von anderen Paaren adoptiert und der Rest weggeworfen

Leipold: Vor ein paar Wochen haben wir aufgedeckt, dass mit Hilfe staatlicher Stellen illegale Versuche mit genmanipuliertem Reis gemacht worden sind. Wir haben öffentlich eine große Holzhandelsfirma angegriffen, die illegal Holz eingeschlagen hat. Diese Aktionen haben in der chinesischen Presse ein großes öffentliches Echo gefunden.
25.May 2005
Der Rückzug vom Ausstieg ist eher politische Rhetorik. Zurzeit werden weltweit lediglich rund zwei % des Energiebedarfs über Kernkraft gedeckt. Wenn man den CO2-Ausstoß auch nur um vier bis fünf % verringern wollte, müsste man Hunderte bis Tausende Kernkraftwerke bauen. Das kostet zunächst einmal eine Menge Geld. Dagegen sprechen aber nicht nur die allgemein bekannten Sicherheitsbedenken, sondern auch geopolitische Überlegungen: Die Gefahr einer Proliferation von Atomwaffen würde gewaltig ansteigen. Etwas zugespitzt könnte man sagen: 'Die Terroristen werden die Verbreitung der Atomkraft verhindern'.
25.May 2005
Leipold: Das sind zum großen Teil Lippenbekenntnisse. Die Vertreter von Wirtschaft und Politik haben vielfach die Formulierungen der Umweltaktivisten übernommen. Auf Großveranstaltungen wie den G-8-Gipfeln hält Chirac fast flammendere Plädoyers für die Urwälder, als es Greenpeace normalerweise tut, und Tony Blair redet über Klimawandel, als ob er selber davon betroffen wäre. In Wirklichkeit stehlen sie sich damit aus der Verantwortung, weil sie den Eindruck erwecken, als seien sie selbst Opfer der Entwicklung. Dabei haben sie ebenso wie die Manager viele Möglichkeiten, etwas zu unternehmen.
25.May 2005
Leipold: Umweltthemen sind hierzulande inzwischen ganz normaler Alltag. Das ist zwar unspektakulärer aber führt zu wesentlich mehr Umweltschutz. Auch bei den Unternehmen ist viel passiert. Umweltrelevante Entscheidungen werden inzwischen vielfach auf Vorstandsebene entschieden. Aber ich gebe zu, die Umwelt gehört im Moment nicht mehr zu den heißen Themen. Für Greenpeace bedeutet das natürlich eine große Herausforderung.
25.May 2005
Die größte Sorge aber gilt in den USA dem kommenden Wahlkampf in Deutschland. Bushs Regierung fürchtet, dass die alten Wunden über den Irak-Krieg noch einmal aufreißen. Schröder werde keine Gelegenheit auslassen, daran zu erinnern, dass Merkel damals an der Seite der USA marschieren wollte.
Angesichts des derzeitigen Desasters im Irak könnte die CDU-Chefin in Deutschland in Schwierigkeiten geraten, schreiben amerikanische Kommentatoren. Schließlich gilt das für Bush zu Hause auch.
25.May 2005
Ähnlich äußerte sich Bushs Parteifreund James Langevin, der seit einem Schusswaffen-Unfall in seiner Jugend gelähmt ist. "Für das Leben zu sein bedeutet auch, für eine Politik zu kämpfen, die Schmerz und Leid verhindert." Auch die ehemalige First Lady Nancy Reagan griff in die Debatte ein - zugunsten der Bush-Gegner. Ihr Mann, Ex-Präsident Ronald Reagan, war im Juni 2004 an der Alzheimerschen Krankheit gestorben.
Tom DeLay, republikanischer Mehrheitsführer im Repräsentantenhaus, stemmte sich gegen die Lockerung des Subventionsverbots: "Wenn wir einem kleinen Embryo auch nur einen Fetzen Respekt und Würde schenken, können wir nicht guten Glaubens die Dollars der Steuerzahler verwenden, es zu vernichten."
25.May 2005
Insbesondere die christliche Rechte in den USA lehnt die Stammzellenforschung als Vernichtung ungeborenen Lebens ab.
25.May 2005
Die Unterstützer des Gesetzentwurfs argumentieren, dass die staatliche Förderung die Bemühungen um Therapien für Krankheiten wie Alzheimer und Parkinson enorm beschleunigen könnte. Die bei künstlicher Befruchtung übrig gebliebenen Embryos, die bei dem gängigen Verfahren zur Stammzell-Gewinnung zerstört werden, seien in den Kliniken ohnehin zur Entsorgung vorgesehen.

25.May 2005 Sending Mental Health Patients into Battle : The USA is having trouble recruiting new soldiers for the war effort in Iraq. So the army is recycling its old fighters.

Yes, this past year has brought forth a dramatic shift in the political landscape of the Middle East.

The USA has focused the world's attention on Iran's pursuit of weapons of mass destruction. And along with our allies, we are working to gain full disclosure of Iran's efforts to obtain nuclear weapons. The world must not tolerate any Iranian attempt to develop a nuclear weapon. (Applause.) Nor can it tolerate Iran's efforts to subvert democratic governments through terrorism. (Applause.)

25.May 2005 A base for the corruption of democracy
The purple finger revolution of January 2005 has proved only one thing: that the US media is capable of building something out of nothing.-By Scott Ritter
As the honeymoon period of the much-hyped 30 January elections in Iraq comes to an end amid the explosions of car bombs and continuous US military action, the harsh reality that these elections have failed to produce a government capable of governing, let alone govern in a fashion that resembles any notion of what a democracy should look like, comes crashing home.

In any case, there is no lack of religion. We are seeing more of it than ever as it promises to swallow up our judicial system and entire government. Ben Laden, Rabbi Avraham Shapira, Jerry Falwell + a hundred million Christian pod people are proof religion alone cannot temper our relentless "sanity" into something more deeply human. So what is lacking? My god! No, this cannot be! Is it possible that even leftist intellectuals and educated liberals, are going to be forced to admit it? Admit that "without love, we are nothing?" That without empathy and charity we are doomed?
If in the end the American empire continues pursuit of this awful thing we seem so determined to carry out, we will learn the answer to that question. Assuming it can be found amid the ruin

"As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight. And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air - however slight - lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness."
Justice William O. Douglas, US Supreme Court (1939-75) I find this to be a very powerful writing... sadly and eerily familiar in it's relevance for today...

What no one seemed to notice , ... was the ever widening gap ... between the government and the people. ... And it became always wider. ... the whole process of its coming into being, was above all diverting , it provided an excuse not to think for people who did  not want to think anyway ... Nazism gave us some dreadful, fundamental things to think about ... and kept us so busy with continuous changes and 'crises' and so fascinated ... by the machinations of the 'national enemies,' without and within, that we had no time to think about these dreadful things that were growing, little by little, all around us. ... Each step was so small, so inconsequential, so well explained or, on occasion, 'regretted,' that unless one understood what the whole thing was in principle,  what all these 'little measures' ... must some day lead to, one no  more saw it developing from day to day than a farmer in his field  sees the corn growing. ... Each act ... is worse than the last, but  only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait  for one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a  shock comes, will join you in resisting somehow. You don't want to  act, or even talk, alone... you don't want to 'go out of your way to  make trouble.' ... And it is not just fear ... that restrains you, it  is also genuine uncertainty. ... And you are an alarmist. You are  saying that this must lead to this + you can't prove it. ...  But the one great shocking occasion, when tens or hundreds or  thousands will join with you, never comes. That's the difficulty.  The forms are all there, all untouched, all reassuring, the  houses, the shops, the jobs, the mealtimes, the visits, the concerts,  the cinema, the holidays. But the spirit, which you never noticed  because you made the lifelong mistake of identifying it with the  forms, is changed. Now you live in a world of hate and fear + the  people who hate and fear do not even know it themselves, when  everyone is transformed, no one is transformed. ... You have  accepted things you would not have accepted five years ago, a year  ago, things your father ... could never have imagined."

Jackson attacks music piracy bill - Pop superstar Michael Jackson has attacked a proposed bill in the US which would jail people who exchange pirated music online.

Two Democrats, John Conyers + Howard Berman, have proposed legislation which would make file swapping of pirated music + software a crime.

The Authors, Consumer and Computer Owners Protection and Security Act of 2003 - known as the Accops Act - carries penalties of up to five years in prison + a $250,000 fine for uploading a copyrighted file to a peer-to-peer (P2P) network.

"I am speechless about the idea of putting music fans in jail for downloading music," Jackson said in a statement.

ACCOPS bill would impose jail time on Net file-traders

Should people be sent to jail for trading files via the Internet?
That is the basic premise behind a controversial new proposal. A committee of the USA House of Representatives is considering the Author, Consumer and Computer Owner Protection and Security (ACCOPS) Act of 2003, a bill that targets 60 million file-sharing Americans for criminal prosecution. Among other things, the proposal includes a provision that essentially would impose jail time on people who place copyrighted material on a publicly accessible computer network without the permission of the copyright holder. In addition, the proposal would apparently require USA law enforcement authorities to assist foreign governments in investigations of potential copyright violations (notably by providing evidence), including violations of "foreign copyright laws."
The plan has already attracted a fair number of detractors, including pop icon Michael Jackson, who said he was "speechless about the idea of putting music fans in jail for downloading music. It is wrong to illegally download, but the answer cannot be jail." Similarly, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF-a GILC member) released a report condemning the bill as an "overbroad" and "misguided" attack on peer-to-peer file sharing technology. EFF Senior Staff Attorney Fred von Lohmann declared: "Jailing people is not the answer. Proponents of this bill are casting aside privacy, innovation + even our personal liberty as collateral damage in their war against file sharing."
The move comes as there is growing public anxiety over whether Hollywood attempts to expand and enforce copyright laws have gone too far. Just before the bill was released, EFF launched a "Let the Music Play" campaign to encourage people to demand that the USA government change its copyright laws to facilitate payment to artists and make file-sharing legal. EFF Executive Director Shari Steele explained: "Copyright law is out of step with the views of the American public and the reality of music distribution online. ... Rather than trying to sue people into submission, we need to find a better alternative that gets artists paid while making file sharing legal." In addition to addressing the free speech concerns, the campaign highlights the potential privacy problems posed by efforts to stamp out Internet file sharing (see item [14] below).

Die Menschheit beraube sich notwendiger Leistungen der Natur, heißt es in dem Bericht,

24.May 2005 So seien seit Beginn des industriellen Fischfangs etwa 90 % des weltweiten Fischbestands verschwunden, heißt es in der
Millennium-Ökosystemstudie ("Millennium Ecosystem Assessment") der Uno. Im vergangenen Jahrhundert habe die Rate des Artensterbens wegen des menschlichen Einflusses 1000-mal höher gelegen, als es bei natürlicher Selektion der Fall gewesen wäre.

Mehr als die Hälfte von 1350 Pflanzenarten sei in ihrem jetzigen Bestand gefährdet, heißt es in der neuesten Ausgabe der US-Fachblatts "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences". Demnach werden bei einer Erwärmung der Atmosphäre um 1,8 bis 3,6 Grad viele Arten in den kühleren Norden ausweichen; weite Teile Mitteleuropas könnten dann so aussehen wie heute der Mittelmeerraum.
Selbst wenn der Ausstoß von Treibhausgasen auf jetzigem Niveau gehalten werde, sei mit "deutlichen Auswirkungen" auf die Vegetation zu rechnen, sagte Sandra Lavorel vom Forschungszentrum für Alpenökologie im französischen Grenoble, das an der Studie beteiligt war. Sollten die betroffenen Pflanzen ein Vorstoßen in kühlere Regionen nicht schaffen, sei jede fünfte Art ernsthaft vom Aussterben bedroht, zwei % würden bis 2080 endgültig ausgerottet. Aber selbst wenn den Pflanzen ein Ausweichen in andere Regionen gelänge, seien zwei Drittel der Arten in ihrem Bestand bedroht.
Besonders betroffen sind der Studie zufolge die hoch spezialisierten Pflanzen in mittleren Höhenlagen der Alpen, Pyrenäen, Cevennen, Karpaten sowie der Bergwelt auf dem Balkan. Rund 60 % der Flora könnte dort unter einschneidenden Klimaänderungen leiden, schreibt das Forscherteam unter Leitung von Wilfried Thuiller vom Südafrikanischen National Botanical Institute in Kapstadt.

The Philadelphia Experiment was the subject of a best-selling book, and a 1984 film. Both proposed that the vanishing crew were somehow catapulted forwards in time. Men claiming to be those crew members still make the rounds of the conspiracy and UFO lecture circuits to this day.

The Eldridge did exist + so did Project Rainbow. But the ship never docked at Philadelphia + Rainbow was the WWII. USA codename for the Axis alliance.

The Allied Navy did actually conduct electromagnetic experiments during the war, in which high voltage cables were wrapped around ships' hulls to degauss them, making them immune to magnetic mines.

But they remained visible to both radar + the human eye.

00.000.1999 the crew of the USS Eldridge had their first reunion. One joked: "The only true part is that the crew were a little crazy."
