The Greenhouse Problem; The refusal to recognise the situation

05-06-2008 15:18

The greenhouse problem has rapidly moved to the centre of official and public attention. Virtually every one accepts that there is a serious problem and that urgent action is required. Two fundamental beliefs underlie the discussion, the first being that the problem can be solved by conservation effort, technical advance and renewable energy, and the second being that the cost will be negligible. Both of these beliefs have been confirmed emphatically by the recent Stern Report[1] and the working Group 3 Reports of the IPCC.[2]

Fuel price protests spread across Europe

02-06-2008 14:05

Growing anger over soaring fuel prices has prompted a wave of strikes and demonstrations across Europe that is fast becoming a major political crisis for the European bourgeoisie. After fishermen in France went on strike, their counterparts in Portugal, Spain, and Italy began indefinite nationwide work stoppages on May 30 to protest against soaring oil prices. Truck drivers, farmers, taxi drivers and ambulance workers across the continent also staged protests.

Proposed Treaty Turns Internet Into a Virtual Police State

01-06-2008 20:45

Leaked documents are one of the banes of modern western politics. They reveal exercises and actions being proposed that are generally objectionable to the public. Such a leak occurred with the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) which seeks to turn the internet into a virtual police state.

30-05-2008 22:02

When oil jumps as much as it has, doubling since May 2007, it's natural to assume that something striking must have happened. In the past five years, investment in index funds tied to commodities has grown from $13 billion to $260 billion.

Sarkozy's migrant proposals,Shengen biometrics: French EU presidency & camps

30-05-2008 21:54

Yesterday the minister for EU affairs of the Spanish state revealed that they were sent last January, a 5 page proposal document by Sarkozy's presidency of France outlining his objectives for new anti-migrant laws to be implemented during the forthcoming French presidency of the EU. The substance of this confidential document has pretty much been explained by me in the last weeks in an article of the quirky humorous "Q&A" series. We may now put the recent anti-migrant laws and Romani purge of Berlusconi in its proper context that which I indicated in the "Q&A". Sarkozy wants biometric Shengen Information System 2, a "integration contract" for migrants and obligatory language lessons.

Comment piece: Library workers to go grey?

27-05-2008 12:58

In the ongoing row over attempts to force Library staff into uniforms,
library bosses appear to have made a concession toward allowing staff to
wear their own choice of clothes - but on the proviso that they are
based on the colour grey. Unsurprisingly, staff are still livid about
this. Gadfly investigates...

The Tools Of Greenwashing: Astroturfs

27-05-2008 10:26

Questioning and exposing the greenwashing activities of corporations, in particular, is something that the seasoned cynic makes light of; but sometimes our job is made more difficult, not so much by the quality of the greenwashing being used, but by the sheer weight of apparent “public” opinion supporting the views of the corporations.
