|What makes me wonder is why Clinton did
not support vermicomposting like Canada has? Bacteria and earthworms are
some of the ways that radionuclides are being neutralized and removed from
the contaminated soil. Even though earthworms may not be a cure all Clinton
seems to be supporting a earth biospere that will be benificial to ants
Tentative hypotheses' for causes of Red Tides are - ballast water being transported globally, Sahara dust storms that rise to the atmosphere and travel with the weather fronts, chemicals killing micro-organisms, side effects of fish having ammonia "diaper rash" over their whole bodies and the red tides are just opportunistic, and - or manure decomposing in water and utilizing the available oxygen. One thing that does not seem to be in doubt, is that the killer conditions produced can result in toxic aerosol capable of creating dermatitis, amnesia, respiratory, and behavior problems.

The fallout range of airborne DU aerosol dust is virtually unlimited. These micro-particles can be inhaled and ingested easily and that makes them dangerous to human health.

Using calculations based on the Pentagon's statement that one in five of the rounds fired by its A-10 aircraft over Kosovo were DU munitions, Mr. Coghill estimates that more than 500,000 DU rounds were fired, of which half detonated.
He says that would have resulted in the release of about one thirty-thousandth of the amount of radiation released at Chernobyl in 1986. "But that was in the form of caesium on the ground. This is free-floating particulate matter."

Murmansk: World's biggest nuclear dustbin By James Robbins in Murmansk
Russia has the world's largest stockpile of nuclear weapons.
However, it is the risk of an accident with ageing nuclear reactors from obsolete Soviet submarines which is causing most concern.
A fifth of all the world's reactors and nuclear fuel is concentrated around the Kola Peninsula, home to Russia's Northern Fleet of submarines.

Alexander Nikitin: Victory after five years of court battles
The Russian Supreme Court has completely exonerated a former naval officer, who had been charged with treason for passing information about Russian nuclear pollution to a Norwegian environmental group.
...Mr Nikitin was arrested in 1996 after he contributed to a report by the Norwegian environmental group Bellona on the dangers posed by radioactive pollution in the Arctic seas.
...In addition to his revelations about radioactive pollution, Mr Nikitin also provided Bellona with information about safety systems for naval nuclear reactors and details of Soviet nuclear submarine accidents.
Prosecutors say this amounted to high treason, but Mr Nikitin and Bellona say the information was of environmental importance, and not subject to Russian secrecy laws.

Methane (Biogas) from Anaerobic Digesters --- This brief was updated in February 2001
[ http://www.eren.doe.gov/consumerinfo/refbriefs/ab5.html ]
In the United States, the availability of inexpensive fossil fuels has limited the use of digesters solely for biogas production. However, the waste treatment and odor reduction benefits of controlled anaerobic digestion are receiving increasing interest, especially for large-scale livestock operations such as dairies, feedlots, and slaughterhouses. Where costs are high for sewage, agricultural, or animal waste disposal, and the effluent has economic value, anaerobic digestion and biogas production can reduce overall operating costs. Biogas production for generating cost effective electricity requires manure from more than 150 large animals.

Nuclear Age Has Claimed Billions of Lives - Russian Ecologist Interfax News Agency, May 22, 2000
[ http://cci.glasnet.ru/news/MAY00/00052905.TXT ]
The nuclear age has claimed more than 2.33 billion lives, Russian ecologist Alexei Yablokov, a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, has said.
.....Asked why the statistics have never been seen in the open press, the ecologist cited a 1959 agreement between the International Atomic Energy Agency and World Health Organization that prohibited the WHO from publishing such statistics without IAEA consent.

Caspian Sea Region: Environmental Issues

...Untreated waste from the Volga River, into which half the population of Russia--and most of its heavy industry--drains its sewage, empties directly into the Caspian Sea. Oil extraction and refining complexes in Baku and Sumgayit in Azerbaijan are major sources of land-based pollution, and offshore oil fields, refineries, and petrochemical plants have generated large quantities of toxic waste, run-off, and oil spills. In addition, radioactive solid and liquid waste deposits near the Gurevskaya nuclear power plant in Kazakhstan are polluting the Caspian as well.
Turkey: Environmental Issues
United States Energy Information Administration -- March 2000
[ http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/cabs/turkenv.html#MARINE_POLLUTION ]
Introduction Turkey's economic emergence has brought with it fears of increased environmental degradation. As Turkey's economy experienced high levels of growth in the mid-1990s, the country's boom in industrial production resulted in higher levels of pollution and greater risks to the country's environment. With domestic energy consumption on the rise, Turkey has been forced to import more oil and gas, and the resultant increase in oil tanker traffic in the Black Sea and Bosporus Straits has increased environmental threats there.
Iran: Environmental Issues
United States Energy Information Administration -- March 2000

... The city's air pollution recently reached a crisis stage in December when high levels of carbon monoxide and other pollutants engulfed the capital for several weeks. With a cloud of smog hovering over Tehran, Iranian authorities shut down elementary schools and closed off the city center to motorists for several days. Iranian-state radio urged Tehran's residents to stay indoors, and many who did venture outdoors resorted to wearing face masks and breathing through wads of cloth. The polluted air was blamed for causing several deaths, as well as causing problems for people with asthma, heart, and skin conditions. ...
... Alternative Energy Sources Iran's renewable energy consumption is low. With 9% of the world's oil reserves and 15% of its natural gas reserves (80% of which have not been developed), Iran has an abundant supply of fossil fuel resources, which tends to discourage the pursuit of alternative, renewable energy sources. Iran's 1997 renewable energy consumption--including hydropower, solar, wind, tide, geothermal, solid biomass and animal products, biomass gas and liquids, and industrial and municipal wastes--totaled 106 trillion Btu, a 6% increase over the previous year. ...
Why Socialism Causes Pollution Posted on February 13, 2002 by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
[ http://www.fee.org/vnews.php?nid=183 ]
Corporations are often accused of despoiling the environment in their quest for profit. Free enterprise is supposedly incompatible with environmental preservation, so that government regulation is required.
Such thinking is the basis for current proposals to expand environmental regulation greatly. So many new controls have been proposed and enacted that the late economic journalist Warren Brookes once forecast that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) could well become "the most powerful government agency on earth, involved in massive levels of economic, social, scientific, and political spending and interference.
But if the profit motive is the primary cause of pollution, one would not expect to find much pollution in socialist countries, such as the former Soviet Union, China, and in the former Communist countries of Eastern and Central Europe. That is, in theory. In reality exactly the opposite is true: The socialist world suffers from the worst pollution on earth. Could it be that free enterprise is not so incompatible with environmental protection after all?
