In two of the privately-run power plants, Beznau in northern Switzerland and Muehleberg near the Swiss capital Bern, “the cooling system of the pool… Continue reading

A hearing began on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque on a lawsuit filed by the Los Alamos Study Group seeking to block any further design, construction or funding of the proposed Chemical… Continue reading

How To Help & Donate To Japan’s Lost and Injured Pets:
You don’t have to speak Japanese to understand the sympathetic tones of the two men observing these dogs who are also disaster victims — and one loyal dog refusing to leave his hurt friend’s side. There is so much we don’t understand about the emotional lives of animals. But we know they can suffer tremendously, and we know they care for each other.

A Simple Statement On Nuclear Power and Climate Change
We’re getting a little tired hearing nuclear industry lobbyists and pro-nuclear politicians allege that environmentalists are now supporting nuclear power as a means of addressing the climate crisis. We know that’s not true, and we’re sure you do too. In fact, using nuclear power would be counterproductive at reducing carbon emissions. As Amory Lovins of Rocky Mountain Institute points out, “every dollar invested in nuclear expansion will… Continue reading

I hope you are watching Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC. With all the work I’ve been doing on News For The Proactive, I haven’t had time to catch up on important TV viewing until yesterday when I watched the first two episodes.
First, I was very embarrassed as a U.S. citizen to have this young man from England come here to save our children – and then to watch bureaucracy at its worst made me cringe to my scalp.
I am shocked and dismayed at the level of food… Continue reading
