101 ways to conserve resources
A General Economic Critique of Water Privatization by Dr. William J. Weida
 The differences between "privatizing" water supplies and the usual concept of privatizing government facilities or organizations create a number of difficulties when actual privatization of water supplies is implemented. For privatization to work, there must be real competition between service providers. Real competition implies a sufficient number of service providers so that no one provider can unduly influence the water market.
A Large Volcanic Eruption Could Damage Ozone by Philip Shabecoff
 Sulfuric acid spewed into the stratosphere may foster reactions.
Acid Rain Kills More People than AIDS by Merritt Clifton
 Acid Rain -- One of America's Worst Killers.
Activist Communications by Longwire
 Tools such as scanners, the worldwide web, cellular phones and new communications satellites give us capabilities once available only to the military-industrial complex. It is our belief that these tools are most effective when used in the Spirit of Peace for a focused purpose. Government security services, the paramilitary right, survivalists, and cop wannabes have been using this stuff for years - since the technology is morally "neutral", it is up to us to give it the power to do good.
Additive 951: The Sweet Poison by Shane Keane
 It’s most likely that you haven’t heard about the dangers of Aspartame before now. Why? Well the diet industry is worth hundreds of billions dollars to many corporations across the world and to keep profits flowing the “damaging” issues regarding Aspartame have been kept a well guarded secret.
Agent Green Over The Amazon by Jeff Conant
 Rumors of the impending release of a genetically modified fungus as part of the War on Drugs in Colombia have been raising concerns among environmentalists and regional officials that a grave ecological and social crisis may be unfolding in the region.
All About Ozone
 Whenever it occurs, ozone (O ) is a colorless gas, a form of oxygen. However, an ordinary molecule of oxygen contains two atoms while a molecule of ozone contains three atoms ( O + O = O3 ). Because of ozone's composition, it is reactive. That is, it readily combines with and oxidizes (breaks down) whatever materials it comes in contact with, including such biological substances as cells and tissues. Far above the earth, ozone forms naturally as oxygen produced from living things moves from the troposphere, the layer of air nearest the earth's surface, to the stratophere.
An Ice Age From Global Warming by Tom Slattery
 Previously published in now defunct "Serial Free Press" in early 2002, over a year prior to the movie "The Day After Tomorrow," this article is a new, different, and alarming hypothesis outlining how present global warming might soon cause The Next Ice Age.
An International Criminal Court for Transnational Companies? by Francois Rigaux
 Transnational companies (TNCs) are economic agents of private law and are subject in principle to rule of law and to the jurisdiction of its courts. The transnational group does not, in itself, possess an identity which can be distinguished from each of the entities that make it up, so that it can only be obliged to answer for its acts in a fragmented way, so that it benefits from the opposing interests of the States in which it operates.
Animal vs. Vegetable Protein by Tom Friedel
 Replacement of animal with vegetable protein in the diet will lower cholesterol and LDL and favorably influence both the onset and the course of arteriosclerosis.

Attacks on Greenpeace and Other Ecology Groups by Chip Berlet
 Environmental activists over the past few years have reported a series of incidents involving surveillance, police overreaction, and harassment that leads then to believe they are being targettedby a campaign to discredit them and hamstring their attempts to exercise their consstitutional rights.
Bio-Piracy in Chiapas by Bill Weinberg
 Despite President Vicente Fox's pledges to withdraw troops from Zapatista territory, many military positions remain in the Selva. The troops are ostensibly policing Montes Azules against drug traffickers and protecting it from deforestation. But the Zapatista base communities say that Montes Azules is not being protected for the resident indigenous peoples, but for trans-national biotech corporations that hope to profit from the region's genetic wealth.
Blue Gold: The Global Water Crisis and the Commidification of World Water by Maude Barlow
 As the water crisis intensifies, governments around the world ? under pressure from multinational corporations ? are advocating a radical solution: the commodification and mass transport of water.
Bugs, Taps And Infiltrators: What To Do About Political Spying by Linda Lotz

Capital, Power, and Ecology: Reasons for Optimism by Paul Hughes
 With a growing amount of power falling into the hands of individuals through internet resources, strong crypto, bioweapons, etc., the response of the capitalist has been to erode privacy and increase the level of intelligence and surveillance to find these potential threats.

Cleaning up the U.S. Environmental Superfund by Creators Syndicate, Inc.
 The entire Superfund effort is mired in litigation, regulation and delays. The original Superfund law was supposed to force polluters to clean up hazardous sites, including the infamous Love Canal in New York, where chemical wastes are suspected of causing miscarriages, birth defects and cancer.

Deforestation Hits Home: U.S. Forest Service Levels Our Landscape by Karen Franklin
 Year after year, regardless of which party controls the White House, the U.S. Forest Service runs its timber program with indifference to the enviromental consequences.
Demonizing Dissent by Kit Gage
 Domestically, the government has stepped up its assault against homegrown dissent - as anyone who was part of Seattle, April 16 and the inaugural in DC, Philadelphia and Los Angeles knows. Likewise, those who read about or viewed it, particularly on the alternative media like Independent Media Center that covered it from the ground saw the spectacle of military style police assault.
Direct Action by Nemesis
 Direct action is heard about all the time in anarchic circles; magic words that solve all problems. We don't embrace political parties -- we support direct action. What is it?
Don't Ask, Don't Know: The Biotech Regulatory Vacuum by Ben Lilliston
 No labeling is required for genetically engineered foods in the United States because in 1992, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decided that engineered foods were substantially similar to conventional foods and thus did not need to be labeled or tested for safety. The FDA has determined that in the case of genetically engineered foods, a "material fact" exists only if a food contains a known allergen, or decreases the nutritional value of the food.

Fast Track to Contaminated Water by Martin Wagner
 In response to this threat to California's water supply, Governor Davis ordered MTBE removed from gasoline by 2002, but that plan may be thwarted. The Canada-based Methanex Corporation, producer of one component of MTBE, is using expansive rights granted to foreign investors under NAFTA to demand the U.S. government pay one billion dollars - the amount of profit the company claims it would earn from MTBE sales - if California insists on banning the chemical.
Fast-growing Trees Eat CO2
 Plants are nature's oxygen machines. They keep our atmosphere breathable by taking out the carbon dioxide and putting back oxygen. That's why the killing of the world's forests is such a critical problem. That's also why the work of two scientists at Syracuse's State University College of Environmental Science and Forestry is so important.

How to Track Nuclear Material Transport by Data Line
 Nuclear material doesn't magically appear at plants that make missiles and bombs. It has to be transported by truck or train. The media has seen fit to portray a totally false picture of the security surrounding the operation. Getting enriched Uranium or Plutonium is seen as marginally difficult, just force a lone semi off the road and loot it. I hope to give the true picture of the task and of the equipment.

Ignored Epidemic: Birth Defects and Learning Disabilities. by Aubrey A.Garcia
 All humans and their technology take in matter and produce waste. When the waste is not disposed of properly, recycled, it builds up and the waste/pollution contaminates if not destroys the food/elements, causing them to be less nutritious and/or makes the food, water, unhealthy life threatening to consume/ ingest and land environment unfit to live on.
Information and Communication in Contemporary Anti-Capitalist Movements by Steve Wright
 Mass actions by networks that identify themselves as anti-capitalist have prompted both extensive mainstream media coverage and broad public interest in recent years. Nor has all of this attention been drowned out by what Matthew Fuller calls the current ‘war over the monopoly on terror’. As is proper, the anti-capitalist potential (or otherwise) of such movements has been widely debated.

NORML's Bad Trip
 Around this time, the group did what political organizations do best--it split into factions. It was, as Stroup biographer Patrick Anderson wrote in High in America, the "classic conflict between middle-class reformers and the people who thought they were fighting the revolution,' that is, the professional pre-yuppie lawyers against the tie-dyed peace'n love hippie activists.

Saving Trees with Marijuana by Aldis Ozols
 Visitors to Toulouse, France, are confronted by the sight of more than 8,000 hectares of lush marijuana plants waving gently in the breeze, while in the central USSR, over 40,000 hectares are under cultivation. These are not the hallucinations of terminal dope-fiends, but government-backed plantations used to supply raw material for paper manufacture.

Test Tube Republic: Chemical Weapons Tests in Panama by FOR
 In the small isthmian nation of Panama, the United States had an active chemical weapons program from at least 1930 until 1968. From 1930 to 1946, this program focused on canal defense. From 1943 until 1968, the program aimed to test chemical munitions under tropical conditions. Dozens of tons of mustard gas and phosgene were stockpiled at a number of sites in Panama, particularly from the 1930s to the 1950s. Unused and dud chemical munitions were also abandoned in Panama.

 If you've ever given money to an environmental organization, if you support the movement's agenda, then you're probably part of a grand conspiracy that's degrading life in America. Worse yet, you might even be a terrorist, or at least an accomplice. At least that's what Nick Nichols seems to think. Nichols acts under the pretext that, "If environmental groups cost business money, then they're eco-terrorists," says Dan Barry, of the Clearinghouse for Environmental Advocacy and Research

The Heat Is On: Global Warming Threatens the Natural World by Norman Myers
 Everyone knows that we are pushing countless plants and animals to the brink of extinction. And we all have heard about our role in raising the Earth's temperature -- the infamous greenhouse effect. But we don't hear much about how the two are connected. In fact, global warming may prove to be the single greatest threat to our fellow species. At the same time, this connection may provide the incentive for a global solution to our most serious environmental crisis.

The True Price of Oil by Marc Ries
 This month, the U.S. imported over 50% of it's oil from foreign sources. The price we pay for this oil at the pump doesn't begin to reflect the billions of dollars of our (YOURS and mine) taxpayer dollars spent on U.S. military "presence" in foreign oil ports and related (destructive) societal costs. That $17 barrel of Middle East oil currently is estimated to actually cost us NO LESS than $49/barrel.
