06.Dec.2007 Scientists Fight Senate Bill Protecting Ancient Remains 

Scientists hoping to study the ancient skeleton known as Kennewick Man are protesting efforts that they say could block them from examining one of the oldest and most complete set of bones ever found in North America.
For the third time in four years, the scientists oppose a Senate bill that would allow federally recognized tribes to claim ancient remains even if they can't prove a link to a current tribe.

06.Dec.2007 Iran Intelligence Report:
Another Psychological Warfare? By Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich
Under the current administration, it is increasingly difficult to know who the enemy is, but what is certain is that the latest National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) is a brilliantly executed psychological warfare by way of misinformation. This dastardly plan is so devious that even the anti-war groups are jubilant at its release, and they are naively sharing its contents.

Perhaps non are as enthusiastic about the report as the most powerful lobby group in America hostile to Iran. Continue

06.Dec.2007 U.S. In No-Win Situations -By- Sam Hamod
No doubt about it, the U.S. is in a no-win situation in Afghanistan, much like the Russians of a few decades back.

we went ahead as if we were the "good guys" who wore the white hats and could not lose because God was on our side. Continue

Venezuela’s constitutional reforms supporting President Chavez’s socialist project were defeated by the narrowest of margins: 1.4% of 9 million voters. 

The result however was severely compromised by the fact that 45% of the electorate abstained, meaning that only 28% of the electorate voted against the progressive changes proposed by President Chavez. Continue

06.Dec.2007 We the Paranoid -By- Eugene Robinson
We Americans like to think of ourselves as strong, rugged and supremely confident -- a nation of Marlboro Men and Marlboro Women, minus the cigarettes and the lung cancer. So why do we increasingly find ourselves hunkered behind walls, popping pills by the handful to stave off diseases we might never contract and eyeing the rest of the world with an us-or-them suspicion that borders on the pathological?

They SPECIFICALLY and repeatedly advised employees of Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley that it was going to be a BIG TRADING DAY + they were going to miss out on hefty commissions if they didn’t come in to work. This was extremely peculiar. An obvious question would be why did the NYSE even sound the opening bell that day? Anyone see a pattern yet?

What these people were doing on conspiracy forums, I have not a clue [/sarcasm].

What it all boils down to is this:

The incriminating footage of FOX/ was not entered into news archives on the internet, niether in video form nor text dialogue. I used every search tool and key word I could think of to no avail…for years.

There still isn’t even an essay or editorial on the subject that I can find. There are video archives available now that are being represented as recordings of the live reports.

These are fake reproductions that do not vaguely resemble what was shown on TV.

Here is my description of what my wife and I saw on FOX/ during the opening act of 9/11:

When the biggest story of the century initially broke, the reports were sketchy at best.

Former Chief of NIST’s Fire Science Division Calls for Independent Review of World Trade Center Investigation 15 09 2007

In my opinion, the WTC investigation by NIST falls short of expectations by not definitively finding cause,

by not sufficiently linking recommendations of specificity to cause,

by not fully invoking all of their authority to seek facts in the investigation, and

by the guidance of government lawyers to deter rather than develop fact finding.

I have over 35 years of fire research in my experience. I worked in the fire program at NIST for 19 years, leaving as a division chief.

I have been at the University of Maryland since. I am a founding member and past-Chair of the International Association for Fire Safety Science—the principal world forum for fire research. …

All of these have been submitted to NIST, but never acknowledged or answered. I will list some of these.

1. Why is not the design process of assigning fire protection to the WTC towers fully called out for fault? …

2. Why were not alternative collapse hypotheses investigated and discussed as NIST had stated repeatedly that they would do? …

3. Spoliation of a fire scene is a basis for destroying a legal case in an investigation. Most of the steel was discarded, although the key elements of the core steel were demographically labeled.

A careful reading of the NIST report shows that they have no evidence that the temperatures they predict as necessary for failure are corroborated by findings of the little steel debris they have.

Why hasn’t NIST declared that this spoliation of the steel was a gross error?

Der Direktor der Internationalen Atomenergiebehörde (IAEA) Mohamed ElBaradei sagte während eines Besuchs in Brasilien, Iran sei von dem Bericht in seiner bisherigen Haltung "etwas gerechtfertigt" worden.

Was er durch das US-Dossier erfahren habe, decke sich mit den Erkenntnissen seiner Behörde.
Russlands Außenminister Sergej Lawrow sagte, Moskau werde bei den Beratungen im Uno-Sicherheitsrat den jüngsten Informationen aus den USA Rechnung tragen.
Chinas Uno-Botschafter Wang Guangya sagte, die Dinge hätten sich mit dem Bericht "geändert".

Er wiederholte seine Forderung, Teheran müsse seine Urananreicherung aussetzen und forderte Iran auf, an den Verhandlungstisch zu kommen.

Bereits am Vorabend hatte Bush die Option eines militärischen Eingreifens bekräftigt: "Ich habe meine Meinung nicht geändert", so Bush.

Der Präsident machte deutlich, dass er auch nach den entwarnenden Befunden auf die weitere Unterstützung Deutschlands und anderer Länder zählt, um hart gegen Teheran vorzugehen.

Die ausländischen Partner "verstehen, dass die iranische Nuklearfrage ein Problem ist und ein Problem bleibt, dem sich die internationale Gemeinschaft widmen muss", sagte Bush.

"Dies ist eine Siegeserklärung des iranischen Volkes gegen die Weltmächte in der Atomfrage", sagte er vor Tausenden Anhängern.

Alle Drohungen und Lügen der vergangenen Jahre hätten sich als ungerechtfertigt erwiesen. All denen, die Iran Böses wünschten, sei damit ein "tödlicher Schuss" versetzt worden.
Er bekräftigte das Recht Irans auf die Entwicklung einer Atomtechnologie und betonte, der Geheimdienstbericht habe den "Feinden Irans" klargemacht, dass sie "unsere Nation nicht mit Drohungen einschüchtern" können.
Der Preis für das Barrel Öl wird nach Meinung der Deutschen Bank im nächsten Jahr sinken, aber auf keinen Fall unter 60 Dollar fallen. Als Grund nannte die Bank die Entspannung im Mittleren Osten.
00.000.2008 -Erst gegen Ende- sei mit einem spürbaren Anstieg an den Börsen zu rechnen, sagte der Banker.

00.000.2008 -noch mindestens bis ins erste Quartal hinein dauern- Frankfurt am Main - Nach Einschätzung der Deutschen Bank wird die weltweite Kreditkrise.

"Im Großen und Ganzen erwarten wir im nächsten Jahr nicht den großen Börsen-Run", sagte der Chefanlagestratege der Bank für Privatkunden, Klaus Martini, in Frankfurt.

"Es steht zu befürchten, dass es immer wieder enttäuschende Mitteilungen gibt, die kleine Rallyes an den Börsen kaputt machen."
Michael Coogan so, der Generaldirektor von CLM: "Wenn die Geldmärkte im Koma bleiben, werden nicht alle Menschen, die ein Darlehen wollen, auch eines bekommen."

London - Es ist eine der stärksten Warnungen, die je von offizieller Seite abgegeben wurden.

Für fast 1,5 Millionen Briten werde es im nächsten Jahr "schwierig, wenn nicht unmöglich", eine bezahlbare Anschlussfinanzierung für ihr Eigenheim zu finden, sagte Clive Briault von der Regulierungsbehörde FSA dem "Telegraph". Die steigenden Kreditkosten seien für viele Hausbesitzer "einfach zu viel".

10.Jan.2005 USA: Schwerer Wintersturm fordert mehrere Tote ...
Trotz der forschen Töne aus Pristina rechnet zurzeit niemand mit einer Unabhängigkeitserklärung am 10.Dez.2007 .

Denn zuerst muss die neue Regierung gebildet werden. Weiterhin muss die Troika ihren Bericht über die Verhandlungen an den Uno-Generalsekretär Ban Ki Moon übergeben. Und der muss dann dieses Papier mit seinen Anmerkungen und Empfehlungen an den Weltsicherheitsrat, der am 19. Dezember tagen soll, vorlegen. Erst danach werden sich die Dinge zuspitzen.

Und zu ihrer Zustimmung zur Senats-Resolution sagt sie, man brauche im Umgang mit Iran nun einmal Zuckerbrot und Peitsche. "Man hat ja durch die harte Haltung eine Veränderung des Verhaltens bei der Revolutionären Garde gesehen."

Das glaubt aber selbst der ihr wohl gesonnene Joe Biden, der gerne Clintons Außenminister würde, keinen Moment.

"Dafür gibt es null Anzeichen", urteilt er vernichtend. Dann legt John Edwards scharf nach.

"Unter den demokratischen Bewerbern hat sie als Einzige für die Iran-Resolution im Senat gestimmt.

Genau das wollten Bush und Cheney." Es sei doch klar gewesen, dass man damit einen möglichen Krieg legitimiere.

"Das geht wirklich zu weit", protestiert Clinton entrüstet.

Die Herren haben die Jacken abgelegt, Clinton sitzt aufrecht mit durchgedrücktem Rücken.

Das erste Thema ist Iran, natürlich. Die Bombe. Oder genauer: eben keine Bombe.

Gestern hat das Eingeständnis der US-Geheimdienste, Iran habe wohl schon 2003 sein Atomprogramm beendet, Washington aufgewühlt.

Und auch die demokratischen Kandidaten, vor allem Clinton.

Die war in ihren Reden zu Teheran nämlich fast so kriegerisch wie Präsident Bush und die republikanischen Bewerber für das Weiße Haus.

Im Senat hat sie für eine Resolution gestimmt, die Revolutionäre Garde in Iran zur Terror-Organisation zu erklären.

Sie wollte gegen die Republikaner nicht schwach erscheinen. Viele ihrer demokratischen Mitbewerber sahen das als verfrühtes Wahlkampf-Taktieren und als einen Blankoscheck für Bush.

Und heute muss sie dafür bezahlen.

Senator Chris Dodd fragt sich laut, wie Clinton nach ihrer Unterstützung für das Irak-Debakel auch noch Bushs Kampf-Rhetorik zu Iran so offen billigen konnte.

04.Dec.2007 Yesterday, National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley said, “when the President was told that we had some additional information, he was basically told: stand down; needs to be evaluated; we’ll come to you and tell you what we think it means.” Later in the briefing, Hadley reversed course and said, “In terms of stand down, they did not tell the President to stand down and stop talking about Iran’s nuclear program.”

White House officials are obfuscating on what they knew and when they knew it because the answer has the potential of further damaging the credibility of what they have asserted about Iran in the past few months. As ThinkProgress has noted, while the intelligence community was processing new information that Iran was “less determined to develop nuclear weapons,” President Bush was specifically warning that Iran was trying to “build a nuclear weapon.”

To recap: At the same time Bush was ratcheting up the rhetoric on Iran, he was told by his National Intelligence Director that that have “some new information.” Yet Bush wants the public to believe he never learned what the information was, nor was he interested.

UPDATE: The Washington Post reports this morning that “intelligence officials began briefing senior members of the Bush administration” about the new information “beginning in July.” But apparently, Bush was left completely in the dark until last Tuesday. Transcript: (more…)
04.Dec.2007 Cheney’s office advocated for Iran attacks ‘on a daily basis.’ - Amanda -

The BBC reports:

[T]he new NIE will make it harder for proponents of military action against Iran to argue their case.

One source, who has close links to US intelligence, said that members of Vice President Dick Cheney’s staff continued to call for military strikes against Iran “on a daily basis” .

Atrios adds: “It must be understood that since our intelligence agencies don’t believe Iran has a nuclear weapons program, it also means that they don’t know where such a program would be physically located if it did exist. This means that any desires of Dick Cheney and his people to bomb Iran simply involve… bombing the shit out of Iran.”
04.Dec.2007 Podhoretz’s ‘Dark Suspicion’: Intel Community Trying To Sabotage Bush With NIE - Ali -

Norman Podhoretz, widely reputed to be the “godfatherof neoconservatism, has been one of the most aggressive hawks clamoring for war with Iran. Podhoretz laid out the “The Case For Bombing Iranin a June cover story in the right-wing Commentary Magazine. He insisted that the Iranians were very close to developing a nuclear weapon:

[Iran’s] effort to build a nuclear arsenal makes it the potentially most dangerous one of all. […]

[A]ll this negotiating has had the same result as Munich had with Hitler. That is, it has bought the Iranians more time in which they have moved closer and closer to developing nuclear weapons .”

Yesterday’s NIE proved Podhoretz’s claims were false. Rather than modify his views on Iran, Podhoretz — who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom 00.000.2004 — aired a nasty conspiracy theory yesterday, attacking the authors of the NIE and accusing the intelligence community of deliberately “leaking material calculated to undermine George W. Bush:”

I must confess to suspecting that the intelligence community, having been excoriated for supporting the then universal belief that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction, is now bending over backward to counter what has up to now been a similarly universal view (including as is evident from the 2005 NIE, within the intelligence community itself) that Iran is hell-bent on developing nuclear weapons. […]

But I entertain an even darker suspicion. It is that the intelligence community, which has for some years now been leaking material calculated to undermine George W. Bush, is doing it again. This time the purpose is to head off the possibility that the President may order air strikes on the Iranian nuclear installations .

After insisting that Iran was “only a small step away from producing nuclear weapons,” and after pushing for military strikes against Iran for months, Podhoretz is apparently determined not to let facts get in the way of his prayers for an Iran war.

UPDATE : Podhoretz isn’t the only conservative desperately spinning the NIE to buttress his hawkish positions. Some other examples from conservative blogs: (more…)
04.Dec.2007 Rove draws protests, threatens GOP candidates. - Matt -

With an appearance on Fox News Sunday this weekend and an op-ed in the Financial Times on Sunday, former Bush political adviser (and new Newsweek contributor) Karl Rove has been busy injecting himself into the public discourse this week. Rove drew “a range of protesters” to a speech at Duke University last night, where he claimed “the United States has nothing to apologize in its conduct in the world:

The United States has nothing to apologize in its conduct in the world,” he said to the audience.

Rove’s presence attracted a range of protesters and civil rights activists who yelled phrases like “You are a murderer” and held up signs that read phrases such as “LIAR” and “Arrest Him.” An activist dressed as a prisoner also came protesting Rove and the United States government’s stance on torture.

In an interview with the Washington Times yesterday, Rove also threatened that “nobody can risk looking disrespectful to the president without paying a price, and [Republican presidential candidates] need to understand that.”
04.Dec.2007 Bush: DNI Told Me ‘We Have Some New Information, He Didn’t Tell Me What The Information Was’ - Faiz -

At a press briefing this morning, President Bush said he was told by his Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell “in August” that “we have some new information” regarding Iran’s nuclear program. But Bush asserted “he didn’t tell me what the information was”:

BUSH: I was made aware of the NIE last week. In August, I think it was John — Mike McConnell came in and said, We have some new information. He didn’t tell me what the information was.

He did tell me it was going to take a while to analyze.

Later, when a reporter followed-up on this statement, Bush asserted no one ever told him to stop ratcheting up the rhetoric against Iran:

REPORTER: Are you saying at no point while the rhetoric was escalating, as WWIII. was making it into conversation — at no point, nobody from your intelligence team or your administration was saying,

Maybe you want to back it down a little bit?

BUSH: No — I’ve never — nobody ever told me that.
Despite Knowledge That Iran Halted Nuke Program, White House Continued To Warn Of False Threat - Amanda -

The National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) released today concludes that “in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program.” It adds that “Tehran had not restarted its nuclear weapons program as of mid-2007,” and the country is “less determined to develop nuclear weapons than we have been judging since 2005.”

The assessment, which relies on data collected through

31.Oct.2007 , was reportedly completed 00.000.2006, but was blocked by administration officials who wanted it to be more in line with Vice President Cheney’s hardline views.

As The Washington Monthly’s Kevin Drum notes, the NIE’s “basic parameters were almost certainly common knowledge in the White Houseat least by last year, when the document was finished. Yet even in the past two months, the administration has continued to push its faulty, inflammatory rhetoric and claim that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons. Some examples:

So I’ve told people that if you’re interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them from have the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon. I take the threat of Iran with a nuclear weapon very seriously.” [Bush, 17.Oct.2007 ]

Our country, and the entire international community, cannot stand by as a terror-supporting state fulfills its grandest ambitions . … The Iranian regime needs to know that if it stays on its present course the international community is prepared to impose serious consequences.” [Cheney, 21.Oct.2007 ]

The problem is Iran, and Iran has not stepped back from trying to pursue a nuclear weapon, and — or reprocessing and enriching uranium, which would lead to a nuclear weapon.” [White House spokeswoman Dana Perino, 26.Oct.2007 ]

We talked about Iran and the desire to work jointly to convince the Iranian regime to give up their nuclear weapons ambitions, for the sake of peace.” [Bush, 07.Nov.2007 ]

We’re in a position now, clearly, especially when we look at Iran, where it’s very, very important we succeed in our efforts, our national security efforts, to discourage the Iranians from enriching uranium and producing nuclear weapons .” [Cheney, 09.Nov.2007 ]

We are convinced that they are developing nuclear weapons .” [Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman, 13.Nov.2007 ]

The White House isn’t yet ready to give up its spin. National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley will be speaking to the press at 3:15 PM EST today, and has already claimed that the NIE “confirms that we were right to be worried about Iran seeking to develop nuclear weapons.”

UPDATE: Secretary of Defense Robert Gates recently said, “It would be a strategic calamity to attack Iran at this time.”

These four firms completely dominate the missile defense program at this point, accounting for 60% of total missile defense contracts issued by the Pentagon in FY1998-99."3
The rise of globalism, to the detriment of Rumsfeld's "have-nots," would be impossible without the “hidden iron fist,” Thomas Freidman's repetitious admonition, of the Pentagon.

04.Dec.2007 Rare ancient wooden throne found in Herculaneum

04.Dec.2007 ACH. Endlich mal wieder eine tolle Verschwörungstheorie. Die AKW-Betreiber zögern die Reparaturen absichtlich hinaus, weil sich die Restlaufzeit nach dem abgenommenen Strom, nicht nach Zeit berechnet, d.h. die Kraftwerke dann bis nach der Wahl am Leben bleiben, und wenn da -- Gott bewahre -- die CDU gewinnen sollte, können sie gleich ganz am Netz bleiben.
04.Dec.2007 Whoa, krass. Kanadischer Bundesgerichtshof verweigert Herausgabe von Flüchtlingen an die USA. Begründung: the U.S. does not meet international refugee protection requirements, nor does it respect international conventions against torture. Kanada hatte da eine ähnliche Konstruktion wie wir, dass man keinen Flüchtlingsstatus begründen kann, wenn man aus einem "sicheren Drittland" einreist.

Das hat natürlich nichts mit den Drittländern zu tun, sondern ist ein völlig transparenter Rassismus, ein Methode, um Ausländer draußen zu halten.
04.Dec.2007 BOAH gehen mir diese Betonköpfe aus der CSU auf den Sack. Das geht ja GAR nicht.

Können diese Möchtegern-Chernenkos nicht dann auch wenigstens kurz nach Machtantritt abtreten, wie das Original?

Man dürfe der Absage der Sozialdemokraten an eine rot-rot-grüne Koalition nach der nächsten Bundestagswahl nicht trauen, sagte Huber in Hannover.

Der CSU-Chef fügte hinzu: "Die Sozialisten scheuen keinen Wortbruch, wenn es darum geht, an die Macht zu kommen." Well, DUH. Ist euch das auch schon aufgefallen, dass die SPD der Turboumfaller vom Dienst ist?

Die CSU ist ja von der GANZ schnellen Sorte! Wer wie SPD-Chef Kurt Beck den Sozialismus ins Parteiprogramm schreibe, "der paktiert auch mit der Linken".

Huber warnte: "Ein Bundeskabinett aus Beck und Nahles, Roth und Trittin, Lafontaine und Gysi darf doch Deutschland nicht regieren. Das wäre eine Katastrophe für unser Land."

Also schlimmer als ein Huber, ein Beckstein, und eine Merkel kann es ja wohl nicht werden.

Er warnte vor einer "Revitalisierung des Sozialismus". "Wir dürfen auch nicht einen Sozialismus auf Samtpfoten hereinschleichen lassen", sagte der CSU-Chef.

Huber betonte mit Hinweis auf den Unions-Wahlslogan von 1976 "Freiheit statt Sozialismus", er habe keine Scheu, auch bei der Wahl 2009 vor dieser Alternative zu warnen.
04.Dec.2007 Na war ja klar, Israel hält weiter daran fest, dass der Iran Atombomben bauen will.

Außenminister Yang Jiechi betonte nach Angaben eines Sprechers in einem Telefonat mit US-Außenministerin Condoleezza Rice, dass

die "Lösung der iranischen Atomfrage auf dem diplomatischen Weg den grundlegenden Interessen der internationalen Gemeinschaft diene".
"Es ist normalerweise unüblich, sich zu Geheimdienstberichten zu äußern", sagte Mark Regev.

Nach den Worten von Infrastrukturminister Benjamin Ben-Elieser muss Israel weiterhin auf jede Art und Weise gegen eine "iranische Atomgefahr" vorgehen.

Das sei eines jener Probleme, bei denen Israel keinerlei Risiko eingehen dürfe, sagte Ben-Elieser dem Armeeradio.

Iran habe mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit sein Atomwaffenprogramm nach kurzer Unterbrechung wieder aufgenommen, sagte Barak heute dem israelischen Armeeradio.

"Es sieht so aus, als ob Iran 2003 für eine gewisse Zeit sein Atomprogramm gestoppt hat. Aber soweit wir wissen, ist es seitdem fortgesetzt worden."
Israels Verteidigungsminister Ehud Barak zweifelte offen das Urteil der US-Geheimdienste an, wonach die Gefahr der atomaren Bewaffnung des Landes inzwischen geringer sei.
Borudscheri erklärte weiter: "Der Bericht bestätigt de facto den Bericht der Internationalen Atomenergiebehörde (IAEA) und damit einmal mehr die iranische Haltung, dass alle iranischen Atomprogramme friedlich sind und ausschließlich für der zivilen Nutzung dienen." Washington sollte jetzt den Fall Iran vom Weltsicherheitsrat wieder an die IAEA zurückgeben und nicht weiter politisieren.

Die US-Geheimdiensteinschätzung neutralisiere die "Verschwörung zionistischer Kreise" in den USA, sagte er dem Nachrichtensender Chabar. Diese hätten sich beim Weißen Haus "mit unwahren Vorwürfen, die selbst der US-Geheimdienst zurückweist", dafür eingesetzt, Druck auf Iran auszuüben.
Regierungssprecher Gholamhossein Elham forderte von den USA sogar eine Entschädigung für die in der Vergangenheit geäußerten Vorwürfe ein:

"Die Amerikaner haben großen Druck auf uns ausgeübt und durch ihre unbegründeten Anschuldigungen die Weltmeinung gegen Iran manipuliert", sagte er der amtlichen Nachrichtenagentur Irna, "dafür sollten sie bezahlen."
"Der Welt wird nun deutlich, dass die atomaren Aktivitäten Irans friedlichen Zielen dienen", betonte Mottaki, der wie alle iranischen Regierungsvertreter stets erklärt hatte, dass die Islamische Republik nicht nach Kernwaffen strebe.
Es sei begrüßenswert, dass die USA nun eine realistische Haltung einnähmen, sagte Außenminister Manutscher Mottaki heute im iranischen Rundfunk. Er freue sich über die "Korrektur", ergänzte er.

Bei den Affen habe sich eine Art fotografisches Gedächtnis gezeigt, erläutert Matsuzawa die Ergebnisse.
Ayumus Trefferquote aber blieb konstant, egal wie kurz die Zahlen nur aufleuchteten.
Die drei Schimpansenjungen waren dabei schneller als die Studenten. Nicht aber die Schimpansenmütter.
Ihrer Meinung nach zeigten die Ergebnisse, dass Menschen mit ihren kognitiven Fähigkeiten den Tieren nicht generell überlegen seien, schreiben Inoue und Matsuzawa im Fachmagazin "Current Biology".
Vor allem waren sie eindeutig schneller als ihre menschlichen Verwandten.
Menschenaffe schlägt Mensch

Menschenaffen erkennen Zahlenreihen schneller und präziser als Menschen. Japanische Verhaltensforscher haben in Gedächtnistests Schimpansen gegen Studenten antreten lassen. Das Ergebnis war eindeutig.

Die Wissenschaft hat ihre Arbeit getan. Jetzt sind die Politiker an der Reihe. In Bali wird ihre Führungsstärke auf den Prüfstand gestellt. Worauf warten wir noch?

Unsere Aufgabe in Bali und danach wird es sein, den im Entstehen begriffenen globalen Transformationsprozess zu gestalten und dem Zeitalter der grünen Wirtschaft und der grünen Entwicklung die Tore zu öffnen. Was noch fehlt, ist ein globaler Rahmen, innerhalb dessen wir, die Völker der Welt, unsere Anstrengungen zur Bekämpfung des Klimawandels koordinieren können.
Das Umweltprogramm der Vereinten Nationen schätzt, dass die weltweiten Investitionen in emissionsfreie Energien im Jahr 2020 1,9 Billionen Dollar erreichen werden - das Startkapital für eine umfassende Neukonfiguration der globalen Industrie.
Ein führendes Münchener Beratungsunternehmen prognostiziert, dass bis Ende des nächsten Jahrzehnts in Deutschland mehr Menschen in der Umwelttechnologie als in der Automobilindustrie beschäftigt sein werden
Forscher an der University of California in Berkeley kamen zu dem Ergebnis, dass in den Vereinigten Staaten 300.000 Arbeitsplätze geschaffen werden könnten, wenn 20 % des Strombedarfs aus erneuerbaren Energieträgern gedeckt würden.
Nach in dem Bericht enthaltenen Schätzungen könnten die Auswirkungen der Klimaänderung mit einem Aufwand von jährlich lediglich 0,1 % des globalen BIP während der nächsten drei Jahrzehnte überwunden werden.
Das ist der Weg, der in die Zukunft führt.
Bei einem kürzlich in Singapur abgehaltenen Gipfeltreffen der führenden Politiker Ostasiens sagte der chinesische Ministerpräsident, Wen Jiabao, eine Senkung des Energieverbrauchs (pro Einheit des BIP) um 20 % über die kommenden fünf Jahre zu - was von der europäischen Selbstverpflichtung, die Treibhausgasemissionen bis 2020 um 20 % zu senken, nicht so weit entfernt ist.
China hat sich zu einer der führenden Nationen auf dem Gebiet der Sonnen- und Windenergie entwickelt.
China wird in diesem Jahr 10 Milliarden US-Dollar in erneuerbare Energien investieren und liegt damit nur hinter Deutschland zurück.
mit eigenen Augen sehen, dass sich Brasilien zu einem der Hauptakteure der grünen Wirtschaft entwickelt hat und inzwischen etwa 44 % seines Energiebedarfs aus erneuerbaren Quellen deckt. Weltweit liegt der Durchschnitt bei 13 %, in Europa bei 6,1 %.

Im vergangenen Jahrhundert fanden drei große wirtschaftliche Transformationsprozesse statt. Auf die industrielle Revolution folgte die technologische Revolution und schließlich das moderne Zeitalter der Globalisierung, in dem wir uns gegenwärtig befinden. Jetzt stehen wir an der Schwelle eines weiteren Umbruchs: des Zeitalters der grünen Wirtschaft.
Wenn sich allerdings die Verhandlungen in der schieren Breite und Komplexität dieser Fragen festfahren, verlieren wir das, was am wertvollsten ist, nämlich Zeit.

Die Welt kann jetzt den Sprung in die Ära der ökologischen Wirtschaft schaffen - und damit sogar den Wohlstand fördern, analysiert Uno-Generalsekretär Ban Ki Moon auf SPIEGEL ONLINE.

Wir haben gelesen, was die Wissenschaft uns sagt: Die globale Erwärmung findet tatsächlich statt, und die Menschen gehören zu ihren Hauptverursachern.

Sicherheit und Fortschritt seien zwei Seiten derselben Medaille, philosophierte Katars Emir Hamad Ibn Chalifa al-Thani, bevor er am Montag dem iranischen Präsidenten das Wort gab. Das war ein höflicher Gemeinplatz, doch er stimmt am Golf nicht ganz: Erst kommt die Sicherheit, der den Golf-Monarchen Prunk und Petrodollars garantiert, und dann der Fortschritt. Und Sicherheit, so sehen es die Ölscheichs, bietet bis auf weiteres nur Amerika.
Niemand aber denke daran, diese Bindung völlig aufzugeben, versichert in Doha Saudi-Arabiens Finanzminister Ibrahim al-Assaf: "Dabei bleibt es." Es ist am Ende ein politisches Bekenntnis.
Eine gemeinsame Währung der größten Ölproduzenten, die irgendwann den Petrodollar ablösen könnte - Venezuelas Staatschef Hugo Chávez und sein Gesinnungsgenosse Ahmadinedschad hätten ihre Freude.
Nicht nur die Millionäre klagen; Zehntausende Gastarbeiter, die in Dubai und Abu Dhabi Wolkenkratzer bauen, rechnen schon seit langem: Ihre mickrigen Gehälter, die bislang ihre Familien in Indien oder Pakistan über Wasser hielten, schmelzen mit dem sinkenden Dollar und der steigenden Inflation dahin. Immer dringender verlangen sie nach mehr Geld.
Was ihre Rials und Dirhams wert sind, wird also weitgehend in Washington entschieden, nicht von den Zentralbanken in Riad, Manama oder Doha.
rechnete der Chefökonom der US-Investmentbank Lehman Brothers unlängst in der "New York Times" vor: "Diese Staaten müssen zusammen jede Woche fünf Milliarden Dollar unterbringen. Leicht ist das nicht."

Höflich hören die Araber dem Iraner zu, doch sein Vorschlag hat in diesem erlauchten Kreis keine Chance: Amerika ist die unangefochtene Schutzmacht der Golfstaaten, seit die Mullahs den Schah gestürzt haben - und erst recht, seit sie ein Nuklearprogramm betreiben, an dessen friedliche Absicht hier keiner glaubt. Ahmadinedschad ist ein Störfall für die Petro-Milliardäre. Er vergällt ihnen die Freude am Geldverdienen, denn was hilft ihr sagenhafter Reichtum, wenn über Nacht ein Krieg ausbrechen und alles zunichte machen kann?
Geradezu schmucklos im Vergleich dazu schreitet der Stargast der Gipfelkonferenz in die Halle: Mahmud Ahmadinedschad. Er trägt einen blauen Nadelstreifenanzug und wird von seinem Außenminister Manutschehr Mottaki begleitet. Der Emir von Katar hat ihn in seine Hauptstadt Doha eingeladen - eine Premiere - und gleich in seinem Grußwort ein heikles Thema angeschnitten.

In "extremer Gefahr" befinde sich der Golf, die Region, aus der die Welt den Großteil ihres Öls bezieht und über der sich erneut die Kriegswolken zusammenziehen. Seit 1980, seit der Revolution in Iran, treffen sich die Ölscheichs jährlich. Selten schwammen sie so im Geld wie diesmal und selten stand so viel auf dem Spiel.
Weaver: "Wir dehnen nicht die tropischen Dschungelgebiete aus. Was wir ausdehnen ist die Fläche der Wüsten."
Die Ergebnisse zeigten, dass die Computermodelle die negativen Folgen der globalen Erwärmung nach immer wieder unterschätzt hätten.
Klimaforscher haben schon seit langem eine Ausdehnung der Tropen bis Ende des 21. Jahrhunderts vorhergesagt.
Seidel und ihre Kollegen kamen anhand unterschiedlicher meteorologischer Kenndaten unabhängig voneinander zu dem Ergebnis, dass sich die tropische Klimazone seit 1979 um 2 bis 4,8 Breitengrade ausgedehnt hat. Das entspricht einer Verbreiterung um 225 bis 530 Kilometer sowohl in nördlicher als auch in südlicher Richtung. Dazu maßen die Wissenschaftler unter anderem anhand von Satellitendaten den Ozongehalt in der Atmosphäre, die Atmosphärentemperatur, die ausgehende langwellige Strahlung und das Ausmaß der Luftzirkulation innerhalb der untersten Schicht der Atmosphäre.
Dian Seidel, Meteorologin am National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Lab im US-Bundesstaat Maryland, hat zusammen mit mehreren Wissenschaftler-Teams belegt, dass sich der Tropengürtel in den letzten 25 Jahren in Richtung der Erdpole ausgedehnt hat - und zwar stärker, als Klimamodelle bislang vorhersagten. Ihre Ergebnisse haben sie in dem Fachmagazin "Nature Geoscience" veröffentlicht.

Karl Rove, 56, hatte im August dieses Jahres erklärt, sein Büro im Weißen Haus zu räumen. Er trat als innenpolitischer Chefberater und stellvertretender Stabschef des Präsidenten zurück - offiziell aus persönlichen Gründen. Er wolle mehr Zeit für seine Familie haben, verkündete Bushs "Boy genius". Zuvor war sein Name jedoch auch im Zusammenhang mit der Plamegate-Affäre gefallen, der Enttarnung der CIA-Agentin Valerie Plame, die die US-Regierung in eine Krise gestürzt hatte.

Bushs einstiger Wahlkamfguru macht Obama Mut. Nicht nur habe er dank einiger guter Auftritte in den Wählerbefragungen Boden gut gemacht, auch mache Hillary Clinton mittlerweile Fehler. Um diese besser auszunutzen, müsse Obama aber noch einiges ändern, findet Rove. Ungefragt hat er deshalb eine sechs Punkte umfassende Siegesanleitung für den 46-jährigen zusammengestellt.

Jon Alterman vom "Center for Strategic and International Studies" fasste es gegenüber der "New York Times" so zusammen: "Dieser Bericht wird vor allem als ein weiterer Irrtum der Geheimdienste wahrgenommen werden. Und warum sollten wir ihnen jetzt noch glauben?"
Immerhin sind solche Beschränkungen für Länder wie Deutschland sehr kostspielig und entsprechend unpopulär bei Banken und Wirtschaft. Und die Amerikaner werden bald ihre alten Glaubwürdigkeitsprobleme einholen.

"Wenn man einmal genau hinschaut, verbinden Iran und die USA ja unheimlich viele Interessen", sagt Karim Sadjadpour vom "Carnegie Endowment for International Peace" SPIEGEL ONLINE. "Dann könnte man erkennen, dass auch Iran wie ein ganz normaler Staat nationale Interessen vertritt, auf die man rational eingehen könnte - so wie es im Umgang mit Nordkorea, Libyen oder anderen Regionen gelungen ist."
Gestern nun kommentierte Harry Reid, der demokratische Mehrheitsführer im US-Senat, umgehend: "Dieser Bericht stellt die alarmierende Rhetorik der Bush-Regierung zur Bedrohung durch Iran direkt in Frage."

Die US-Geheimdienste scheinen sich nun in diesem Ringen neu positioniert zu haben. "Sie wollten sichergehen, nicht noch einmal für die Rechtfertigung eines Militärschlages fehlerhafte Informationen geliefert zu haben. Man muss annehmen, dass sie wiedergutmachen wollen, was sie vor Irak versäumt haben", sagt ein ehemaliger Mitarbeiter des Nationalen Sicherheitsrates im Weißen Haus im Gespräch mit SPIEGEL ONLINE.
Noch am 17. Oktober hatte Bush aber vor dem Dritten Weltkrieg gewarnt, sollte Iran eine Atomwaffe erhalten.

Hadleys Problem: So wird wohl niemand auf der ganzen Welt den 100 Seiten starken NIE-Bericht deuten. Denn die zentralen Sätze der Top-Analysten - destilliert aus den Erkenntnissen aller 16 US-Geheimdienstorganisationen - tönen lauter als jeder "Spin" des Weißen Hauses. Sie lauten: "Teheran hat wohl bereits 2003 sein Atomprogramm auf internationalen Druck hin eingestellt." Und: "Das Land wird bis 2015 technisch nicht in der Lage sein, genug Plutonium für den Bau herzustellen und aufzubereiten." Schließlich, beinahe ein Armutszeugnis für Geheimdienstexperten: "Wir wissen nicht, ob Iran die Absicht hat, Nuklearwaffen zu entwickeln."

In einem ähnlichen Papier vor zwei Jahren hatte sich das noch ganz anders angehört. Damals war Iran nach Einschätzung der US-Geheimdienste "entschlossen", die Bombe zu bauen.
Das soeben veröffentlichte "National Intelligence Estimate" (NIE) der US-Geheimdienste zertrümmert Bushs Iran-Strategie.
Nun stellen die amerikanischen Geheimdienste fest: Das Atomprogramm der Mullahs liegt seit Jahren auf Eis. Fragt sich nur, seit wann Bush schon von der Neueinschätzung wusste.

IMC was run by Cuban-American Miguel Recarey, a character with a host of idiosyncrasies. He carried a 9-mm Heckler & Koch semiautomatic pistol under his suit coat and kept a small arsenal of AR-15 and Uzi assault rifles at his Miami estate, where his bedroom was protected by bullet-proof windows and a steel door. It apparently wasn't his enemies Recarey feared so much as his friends. He had a long-standing relationship with Miami Mafia godfather Santo Trafficante, Jr., and had participated in the illfated, CIA-inspired mob assassination plot against Fidel Castro in the early 1960s.

Bush "spent most of his time in the early and mid-1980s hobnobbing with ex-Cuban intelligence officers, Nicaragua n Contras + others plugged into the lucrative orbit of Miami-area front groups for the CIA .

But he, too, had some Middle East connections.

Two of his business associates, Guillermo Hernandez-Cartaya + Camilo Padreda, both indicted for financial dealings,

were longtime associates of Middle Eastern arms dealer, BCCI investor + Iran-Contra figure Adnan Khashoggi .
Prosecutors dropped the case against the two + a federal judge ordered Padreda's name expunged from the record.

But a few years later Padreda, a former Miami-Dade County GOP treasurer, was convicted of fraud over a federally insured housing development that Jeb Bush had helped to facilitate.

Michael Ledeen, advisor to Carl Rove :"

01.Sep.2004 - Ledeen has been branded an 'ultra neo-conservative' and is seen by his critics as the most sinister and radical of them all.

He is a scholar at the neo-conservative think tank The American Enterprise Institute, which also counts the former chair of Pentagon Defence Policy Board Richard Perle among its members.
"He also writes regularly for American Spectator magazine.

A former Rome Correspondent for the New Republic newspaper, Ledeen first rose to political prominence as a member of the National Security Council during Ronald Reagan 's reign.
00.000.1985 "But it was- that he became a well-known figure in the US when his Israeli intelligence contacts were used to help broker the illegal Iran/contra rebel affair - a move was aimed at destablising the left-wing government in Nicaragua .
"However, he does say that he didn't approve of the final deal in that affair.

Prof Ledeen is also a student of Machiavelli and has written a book about the Renaissance philosopher whose name has become synonymous with strong and brutal governments.

He is also the author of The War Against the Terror Masters, which claims that America must topple the regimes of the terror masters such as Iraq, Syria and Saudi Arabia to eliminate the threat of terrorism.
"Prof Ledeen is also believed to have the ear of the White House's current Chief of Staff Karl Rove + has regular conversations with him.

His view on the war on terror is clear, he said: "Iraq is just one battle in a larger war, bringing down the regime in Iran is the central act, because Iran is the world's most dangerous terrorist country."

The Bush Dynasty + the Cuban Criminals -New book reveals links of two presidents + the governor of Florida Bush, Jeb with exiled hardliners
The brother of President George Bush, the Florida governor, Jeb Bush, has been instrumental in securing the release from prison of militant Cuban exiles convicted of terrorist offences, according to a new book.

The Bush family has also accommodated the demands of Cuban exile hardliners in exchange for electoral + financial support, the book suggests.


11.Sep.2001 -Last year, after- while USA justice department announced a sweep of terrorist suspects,

Cubans convicted of terrorist offences were being released from USA jails with the cons ent of the Bush administration, according to the book, Cuba Confidential: Love + Vengeance in Miami + Havana, by Ann Louise Bardach, the award-winning investigative journalist who has covered Cuban + Miami politics for the New York Times + Vanity Fair.

00.000.1984 -go back to- The Bush family connections- when Bush, Jeb began a close association with Padreda, Camilo a former intelligence officer with the Batista dictatorship overthrown by Fidel Castro.

00.000.1984 -then- Bush, Jeb was the chairman of the Dade county Republican party Padreda its finance chairman.

00.000.1984 -earlier- Padreda had been indicted on a $500,000 (£320,000) embezzlement charge along with a fellow exile,

Cartaya, Hernandez but the charges were dropped, reportedly after USA CIA stated that Cartaya had worked for them USA CIA .

Padreda later pleaded guilty to defrauding the housing + urban development department of millions of $$ 1980 -during the s.-

President Bush 's younger brother Bush, Jeb was also on the payroll in the 1980 - of the prominent Cuban exile Recarey, Miguel who had earlier assisted USA CIA in attempts to assassinate CUBAN President Castro .

Recarey, who ran International Medical Centers (IMC ), employed Bush Jeb as a real estate cons ultant + paid him a $75,000 fee for finding the company a new location, although the move never took place, which raised questions at the time .

Bush Jeb did, however, lobby the Reagan / Bush administration vigorously + successfully on behalf of Recarey + IMC .

"I want to be very wealthy," Bush Jeb told the Miami News when questioned during that period.

00.000.1985 Bush Jeb acted as a conduit on behalf of supporters of the Nicaraguan contras with father Bush [BGHW948] Bush Jeb,

00.000.1985 - then- Bush [BGHW948] USA vice-president + helped Bush Jeb arrange for IMC to provide free medical treatment for the contras.

later Recarey was charged with massive medicare fraud but fled the USA before his trial + is now a fugitive .

Bush Jeb sealed his popularity with USA Cuban exile community by acting as campaign manager for another prominent USA Cuban, Ros-Lehtinen, Ileana when she ran successfully for USA Congress.

Bush [BGHW948] famously appeared with USA Cuban, Ros-Lehtinen, Ileana her during her campaign in Miami declaring:

"I am certain in my heart I will be the first USA president to step foot on the soil of a free + independent Cuba."

-since- USA Cuban, Ros-Lehtinen, Ileana has lobbied successfully for the release of several exiles convicted of terrorist offences held in USA jails but who now live freely in Miami.

Most controversially, at the request of Bush Jeb, Mr Bush [BGHW948] intervened to release the convicted Cuban terrorist Bosch, Orlando from prison and then granted him US residency.

According to the justice department in George Bush Sr's administration, Bosch had participated in more than 30 terrorist acts. He was convicted of firing a rocket into a Polish ship which was on passage to Cuba. He was also implicated in the 1976 blowing-up of a Cubana plane flying to Havana from Venezuela in which all 73 civilians on board were killed.

CIA memorandums strongly suggest, according to Bardach's book, that Bosch was one of the cons pirators, and quotes the then secretary of state, Henry Kissinger, as writing that the "US government had been planning to suggest Bosch 's deportation before Cubana airlines crash took place for his suspected involvement in other terrorist acts and violation of his parole".

Bosch 's release, often referred to in the US media as a pardon, was the result of pressure brought by hardline Cubans in Miami, with Jeb Bush serving as their point man. Bosch now lives in Miami and remains unrepentant about his militant activities, according to Bardach.

In July this year, Jeb Bush nominated Raoul Cantero, the grandson of Batista, as a Florida supreme court judge despite his lack of experience. Mr Cantero had previously represented Bosch and acted as his spokesman, once describing Bosch on Miami radio as a "great Cuban patriot".

Other Cuban exiles involved in terrorist acts, Jose Dionisio Suarez and Virgilio Paz Romero, who carried out the

00.000.1976 assassination of the Chilean diplomat Orlando Letelier in Washington, have also been released by the current Bush administration.

The current administration also maintains a hard line on the continuing Cuban embargo despite the urgings of many in Mr Bush 's own party to end it.

The president's adviser, Karl Rove, "has urged him to fully accommodate hardliners in return for electoral victories for both his brother and himself", Bardach's book says.

For their help, many hardline Cuban-Americans have received plum jobs in the current administration: Mel Martinez, the Orlando Republican who arranged for the shipwrecked Cuban boy, Elian Gonzalez, to visit Disney World, was made housing secretary, while Otto Reich was awarded a one year recess appointment for the western hemisphere in the state department.

Like so many of those who would attach themselves to the Bush sons over the years, Padreda brought some hefty luggage with him. 00.000.1982, four years before teaming up with Jeb, Padreda, along with another right-wing Cuban exile, Hernandez Cartaya, was indicted and accused of looting Jefferson Savings and Loan Association in McAllen, Texas. The federal indictment charged that the pair had embezzled over $500,000 from the thrift. (Cartaya was also charged with drug smuggling, money laundering, and gun running.) But the Jefferson Savings case would never go to trial.

Florida froze withdrawals from a state investment fund earlier this week when local governments withdrew billions of dollars out of concern for the fund's financial stability.

In the past few days, municipalities have withdrawn roughly $9 billion, nearly a third of the $28 billion fund (which is similar to a money market fund) controlled by the Florida's State Board of Administration (SBA). The run on the fund was triggered by worries that a %age of the portfolio contained debt that had defaulted.

A majority of this paper was sold to SBA by Lehman Brothers . Bush, as the state's top elected official, served on a three-member board that oversaw the SBA until he retired as governor in January. In August, Bush was hired as a consultant to the bank. Lehman spokesperson Kerrie Cohen, speaking on behalf of Bush, said they had no comment and would not say when the bank had sold Florida the paper. SBA did not return calls.

While SBA wouldn't confirm, Bloomberg reported the amount of debt in default is around $900 million.

03.Dec.2007 Another source for these comparisons comes from two Naomi’s, Klein and Wolfe. These two gorgeous and brave women are coming at the same issues from only slightly different angles, angles that are parallel but importantly complimentary. Klein’s recognition of the historical evolution of the Shock Doctrine, a la Milton Friedman himself, exposes how the greedy and powerful have actively worked to keep economies (that would serve their plundering and looting agenda) under control, economies that now include our own. Wolfe’s contribution looks directly at those comparisons with the thirties, but more blatantly at Germany’s devolution to fascism. Though we’ve made many of those comparisons before, if only in passing, she’s drawn out the parallels in disturbingly geometric precision, and it’s frightening. That someone out there we’re hoping to have the leadership and courage to take up this banner with bold conviction needs to stop shying away from that F word; fascism is upon us, and it’s gaining ground at frightening speed.
Rarely has the ECB been as powerless as it is today. It can do nothing against the weak dollar, nor can it perform its real task of protecting the intrinsic value of the euro.

But opinions are divided over what happens next. There are three possible scenarios. Which of them becomes reality will depend on whether the participants behave more or less rationally -- or whether panic breaks out.
But all other industries will also feel the effects of a worldwide economic slowdown in the wake of the dollar crisis.

According to recent figures, 20 % of US mortgages were issued to borrowers with extremely poor credit.

00.000.2001 that number was only 5 %. The industry's motto today might as well read: "My home is my house of cards."
The world economy is booming and the profits of US corporations are exploding, but American workers have been left out in the cold.

Rarely has the world economy been so out of whack or have global imbalances been greater.

The Americans were the world's financiers for years. Today they are its biggest borrowers, while the Asians serve as America's bank.

The dollar's dominance holds great appeal for Americans. They can continuously print green bills and sell them abroad without driving up inflation in their own country.

They can go into debt to pay for things like the Iraq war or enjoy the benefits of tax cuts. This attitude has led to a record US national debt of $5 trillion.
The problem is the transitional period, in which one power is weakening and the other is not yet capable of slipping into its shoes.
"If the crisis continues well into the coming year," says Burda, "it may very well assume proportions like the worldwide depression in the 1930s."

Not too long ago, the Fed predicted 4 % growth for the US economy 00.000.2008.

On Tuesday of last week, it scaled back its US economic growth forecast for the coming year to between 1.8 and 2.5 %.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy has made himself even clearer.

He suspects that American politicians are deliberately using the weak dollar to improve the export prospects of American industry and weaken European competitiveness.

It wouldn't be the first time.

00.000.1970 -In the early s- the then-Treasury Secretary John Connally openly confessed: "The dollar is our currency, but your problem."
Consumer spending and investment, the two main pillars of the US economy, are faltering.

And yet every dollar increase in the price of oil and, especially, every cent the dollar loses in value heightens fears of the seemingly inevitable consequences, and fears that global growth could slow and, in an extreme scenario, even come to a grinding halt.
Jean-Claude Trichet, the president of the European Central Bank, says that he already recognizes "brutal movements" in the international monetary structure.

Whereas some experts might look at the historical record and expect a swing back against the Democrats or at least no major gains 00.000.2008, I think the historical record suggests it’s more likely that

Um alle Zweifel am chinesischen Bildmaterial auszuräumen, kündigte Ziyuan ein für Pekings Verhältnisse ungewöhnliches Transparenzprogramm an.

Jeder interessierte Chinese könne sich anmelden, um Zugriff auf die Daten der Sonde zu erhalten - egal ob Wissenschaftler oder Hobby-Astronom.

Schließlich sei die Sonde aus Steuergeldern bezahlt worden. Deswegen hätten die Bürger auch ein Anrecht auf die Bilder.

Die EZB sitzt mit 600 Tonnen Gold auf einem vergleichsweise kleinen Reservenberg. Über die mit Abstand größten Goldreserven - etwa 8100 Tonnen - verfügt nach offiziellen Angaben die US-Notenbank Federal Reserve.

Auf Platz zwei liegt die Bundesbank, die rund 3400 Tonnen Gold ihr Eigen nennt. Drittgrößter Goldbesitzer ist mit etwa 3200 Tonnen der Internationale Währungsfonds (IWF).

Frankfurt - Nach Schätzungen von Analysten sind die Goldreserven der Europäischen Zentralbank (EZB) durch den Mega-Verkauf um sieben % gesunken.

Eugen Weinberg, Rohstoffexperte bei der Commerzbank, errechnete, dass mittels des Verkaufs etwa 1,2 % der jährlichen weltweiten Goldnachfrage gestillt werden. DDP

Goldreserven der Bundesbank: Vom Markt gut absorbiert Da der jüngste Rückgang des Goldpreises am schwachen Dollar liege, habe der Markt das Gold der Zentralbank offenbar gut absorbiert, sagte Weinberg.

"Wir glauben den Daten der Zentralen Wahlkommission nicht", hatte KP-Chef Gennadi Sjuganow gestern im Nadelstreifenanzug und mit ernster Miene verkündet.

Elf % der Stimmen habe man den Kommunisten insgesamt weggenommen, und den Kreml-treuen Parteien LDPR und Gerechtes Russland zugesteckt, behauptet er.

In Baschkortostan oder Mordowien habe man die Stimmen erst gar nicht ausgezählt. Seine Beschwerdeliste ist lang und wird noch wachsen.

Sjuganow nennt das Parlament heute eine "Stempelfabrik": "Ich möchte der Macht sagen: Hört auf, ihr unterdrückt das Land." Inzwischen ruft der KP-Chef die Bürger auf der Homepage der Partei zum öffentlichen Protest auf. Auch in der Vergangenheit hatte die Kommunistische Partei immer wieder über Wahlfälschungen geklagt, doch ohne Erfolg. Nun stehen die Kommunisten vor einem Scheideweg: Bleiben Sie ein zahnloser Tiger oder werden sie ein ernstzunehmender Kreml-Gegner?
Iran habe aller Wahrscheinlichkeit im Herbst 2003 sein Atomwaffenprogramm eingestellt, heißt es in dem sogenannten National Intelligence Estimate.

Es sei anzunehmen, dass Iran das Programm bis Mitte 2007 nicht wieder aufgenommen habe.

Die Entwicklung von Technologie, die auch für den Bau von Atombomben benutzt werden könnte, sei aber fortgesetzt worden, heißt es weiter.

Aus Geheimdienstkreisen verlautete, das Atomwaffenprogramm sei auf internationalen Druck gestoppt worden. "Wir urteilen mit hoher Gewissheit, dass der Stopp in erster Linie eine Reaktion auf wachsende internationale Aufmerksamkeit und Druck war." Dies lasse vermuten, dass Iran "verwundbarer auf Einfluss ist als wir bislang vermuteten".

Dies lege nahe, "dass Teherans Entscheidungen eher auf einer Kosten-Nutzen-Analyse beruhen als auf einem Streben nach der Waffe ohne Berücksichtigung der politischen, wirtschaftlichen und militärischen Kosten".

Angesichts solcher Versäumnisse lässt sich nur schwer abschätzen, wie viele Menschen unschuldig in amerikanischen Gefängnissen ausharren. Einen Versuch hat Samuel Gross unternommen:

Der Rechtsexperte von der University of Michigan hat 3293 zwischen

00.000.1973-00.000.1989 gefällte Todesurteile analysiert, bei denen es fast ausschließlich um Mord und Vergewaltigung ging.

Demnach sind 2,3 % der Verurteilten - aus unterschiedlichsten Gründen - wieder freigekommen.

Hochgerechnet auf sämtliche Gefängnisinsassen der Vereinigten Staaten entspräche dies der Einwohnerzahl einer ganzen Kleinstadt: 50 000 Bürger, die unschuldig eingekerkert sind.

Im Houston Police Department Crime Laboratory ging es derart drunter und drüber, dass es 2002 aufgrund zunehmender Proteste geschlossen werden musste. Als Mitglieder einer Untersuchung sich hier umsahen, waren sie geschockt: In den Räumen fanden sich Proben aus 19 500 Vergewaltigungsfällen, die niemals bearbeitet worden waren. Regenwasser war durchs Dach getropft. In einer Asservatenkammer fraßen sich Ratten durch 280 Kisten mit Beweismaterial, das dort in Vergessenheit geraten war.
Von den Menschen, die zu Unrecht als Vergewaltiger abgeurteilt wurden, waren 73 % Schwarze oder Hispanics. Bei rechtmäßig verurteilten Vergewaltigern liegt die Vergleichszahl bei nur 37 %.

Als James Giles abgeurteilt wurde, kursierte im Criminal District Court noch eine Aktennotiz, wie man die Geschworenen auszuwählen habe: "Nehmen Sie keine Juden, Neger, Mexikaner oder Angehörige anderer Minderheiten."
Die Parole auf den Fluren des Strafgerichts habe geheißen: "Einen Schuldigen kann jeder überführen - aber es braucht Begabung, einen Unschuldigen zu überführen."
Ähnlich urteilt der Psychologe Gary Wells von der Iowa State University, der seit 30 Jahren darauf hinweist, dass Augenzeugen erstaunlich häufig irren.
Einst haben Geschworene jedes Jahr etwa 300 Verurteilten das Recht auf Leben abgesprochen; 2006 widerfuhr das nur 114 Verurteilten.
Erstmals, so zeigt eine Gallup-Umfrage aus dem Vorjahr, sind die Amerikaner mehrheitlich nicht mehr dafür, Kapitalverbrechern den Garaus zu machen.

Die Aufräumarbeit der DNA-Detektive führt im Gefängnisland USA - gegenwärtig leben dort 2,3 Millionen Menschen hinter Gittern - zu merklichen Veränderungen im Justizwesen.

Mittlerweile haben 42 der insgesamt 50 Bundesstaaten den nachträglichen DNA-Test zugelassen. Und mehr als 500 Behörden zur Strafverfolgung haben ihre Gepflogenheiten geändert:

Inzwischen müssen die Ermittler ihre Verhöre aufzeichnen, damit sich später objektiv nachvollziehen lässt, unter welchen Umständen Geständnisse abgelegt worden sind.
Beinahe jede Woche kommt gegenwärtig irgendwo in den Vereinigten Staaten ein Mensch aus dem Gefängnis frei, weil ein DNA-Test seine Unschuld bewiesen hat.

Nach 16 Jahren Zuchthaus tastet sich etwa Brandon Moon, der seine alte Gefängniskarte am Sakko trägt, in das Leben hier draußen zurück.

"Ich muss mich noch eingliedern", sagt der 46-Jährige, der als Entschädigung eine Pension in Höhe von jährlich 25.000 Dollar erhält.

Nach Angaben des "Innocent Project", einer Hilfsorganisation für unschuldige US-Häftlinge, sind bis vergangenen Freitag 208 Frauen und Männer aus den Kerkern befreit worden.

Mehr als 90 % von ihnen hatte man Vergewaltigung vorgeworfen - ein Verbrechen, das sich wegen der Spermaspuren besonders leicht mit Hilfe von DNA-Tests aufklären lässt.

Im Durchschnitt hatten die zu Unrecht Verurteilten zwölf Jahre hinter Gittern verbracht. 15 von ihnen waren sogar zum Tode verurteilt und sind den Henkern nur knapp entronnen.

In diesem Fall jedoch seien die chemischen Reaktionen der Fossilisation schneller als die Zersetzung durch Mikroben gewesen, sagte Manning.

Besonders begeistert sind die Wissenschaftler von der gut erhaltenen Haut des Hadrosaurus. Manning: "Dies ist kein Hautabdruck, sondern versteinerte Haut - das ist ein großer Unterschied."

Mit der Hand über die Schuppen zu streichen, so der Forscher, komme dem Berühren eines echten Dinosauriers so nahe wie nichts zuvor.

Die Präsidentschaftsbewerberin zeigte sich auch besorgt über ausländische Staatsfonds wie etwa dem chinesischen, die in anderen Ländern investieren.

Solche Fonds könnten eine mögliche Bedrohung für Amerikas "wirtschaftliche Souveränität" sein. "Mein Hauptanliegen ist es, die Transparenz zu erhöhen, damit klar sichtbar ist, woher diese Fonds kommen."

So könnten eventuelle Nachteile schnell erkannt werden, wenn bestimmte Regierungen bestimmte Aktiva in den USA hielten.

Die USA sind nunmehr der einzige westliche Industriestaat, der das Kyoto-Protokoll noch nicht ratifiziert hat.
"Dies ist die erste Amtshandlung der neuen australischen Regierung", erklärte der sozialdemokratische Politiker in einer Mitteilung.

Die Unterzeichnung solle zeigen, dass sich die Regierung voll gegen den Klimawandel einsetze.

Kurz zuvor waren Rudd und seine Minister in der Hauptstadt Canberra vereidigt worden.

"Wir sind hier, um sicherzustellen, dass die Regierungen einen klaren Aktionsplan beschließen, um mit dem Klimawandel fertig zu werden", sagte der Greenpeace-Klimaexperte Gavin Edwards.

Das Kyoto-Protokoll läuft 2012 aus. Der Anschlussvertrag soll spätestens 2009 unterzeichnet werden, um allen Ländern genügend Zeit für die Ratifizierung zu geben.
"Diese Konferenz wird mitbestimmen, ob Bali wie andere gefährdete Orte dieser Welt eines Tages ein verlorenes Paradies wird oder nicht", warnte Yvo de Boer, Chef des Uno-Klimasekretariats, bei der Eröffnung.
Der indonesische Umweltminister und Konferenzpräsident Rachmet Witoelar sagte bei der Eröffnung der Konferenz, von wissenschaftlicher Seite aus seien die verheerenden Folgen des Klimawandels drastisch aufgezeigt worden. Jetzt müsse gehandelt werden. "Wir müssen den politischen Willen aufbringen", mahnte er seine Kollegen.
Unterdessen hat Australiens neue Regierung das Kyoto-Protokoll ratifiziert.

Die Ergebnisse der Studie stehen im "Journal of Gerontology": Drei farbige Aufnahmen von Gehirnen sind da zu sehen, mit Pfeilen, die auf verschiedene Stellen weisen:

Hier ist jeweils Gehirngewebe größer geworden.

Vor allem Gewebe in den präfrontalen und temporalen Hirnrinden hatten ein vergrößertes Volumen - es sind gerade diese Regionen, die im Alter verstärkt verloren gehen.

In der Kontrollgruppe fanden sich solche Verbesserungen nicht.
Die beteiligte Neurologin Miia Kivipelto sagt:

"Wenn eine Person in jungen und in mittleren Jahren einen aktiven Lebensstil ergreift, dann vermag das die Wahrscheinlichkeit zu erhöhen, später im Leben Jahre voller körperlicher und geistiger Vitalität zu genießen."

Die VGF-Proteine, die sich auch in Menschen finden, könnten sich als das seit langem gesuchte Scharnier erweisen, das körperliche Bewegung in Hirngesundheit übersetzt.

Wie eng beide Faktoren miteinander zusammenhängen, ist Epidemiologen bereits in vielen Studien aufgefallen:

Ausdauertraining hebt demnach die Stimmung, nimmt Ängste, stärkt das Selbstbewusstsein und erhöht das Vermögen, Stress zu bewältigen.

Als man Gruppen von aktiven und von inaktiven Menschen für eine Studie acht Jahre lang beobachtete, zeigte sich:

Die sesshaften Zeitgenossen hatten im Lauf der Jahre eine doppelt so hohe Depressionsrate entwickelt.
