Greenpeace protests tennis sponsor's nuclear funding
http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20101113/sc_afp/environmentnuclearbankingbnpprotesttennisfraatp
Agence France-Presse: Environmental group Greenpeace hung banners on the venue of the Paris Masters tennis tournament Saturday protesting the involvement of sponsors BNP Paribas in funding a nuclear project in Brazil. Half-a-dozen militants hung the 11-square-metre (118-square-foot) banners from the Palais Omnisport de Bercy, calling on the bank not to fund the building of the nuclear reactor Angra 3, 150 kilometres (95 miles) from Rio de Janeiro. Calling the reactor "obsolete and dangerous," Greenpeace said BNP...

Owls' clue to climate change
http://www.suntimes.com/news/nation/2891388,CST-NWS-owl14.article
Chicago Sun-Times: Homestead Cave, at the north end of Utah's Lakeside Mountains, has yielded a paleontological jackpot for scientists reconstructing ancient Great Basin environments, thanks to owls that spit up small-animal prey there for thousands of years. The piles of regurgitated pellets drew Dave Madsen in the early 1990s, hoping the bones would provide a record of plants and animals. Madsen and his colleagues found scientific pay dirt. Three years of excavation recovered undisturbed bones representing...

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/officials-linked-climate-deal-to-aboriginals-asking-feds-for-more-cash/article1798110/
Canadian Press: "There is a possible link between an agreement at Copenhagen on international funding for adaptation and an increased demand for funding by indigenous groups in the Arctic,' the document says. Delegates from nearly 200 countries gathered in Denmark last December in the hopes of brokering an international agreement on climate change. But the summit ended in confusion and disarray as delegates returned home with little to show for two weeks of what were often tempestuous talks. The memo to...

Associated Press: State-run Coal India, the world's largest coal producer, is continuing talks with Peabody Energy Corp. and Massey Energy Co. about acquiring some of those companies' mines, Coal India's chairman said Friday.

He declined to discuss where the mines are located or what the deal value might be. In April, St. Louis-based Peabody...

Conservatives burn over Fred Upton's light bulb law
http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1110/45059.html
Politico: Conservatives on and off Capitol Hill are waging a campaign to show that the Michigan Republican isn't conservative enough to chair the powerful committee that will be in the center over fight on health care and energy policy next year. For proof, they're pointing to Upton's support for phasing out some incandescent light bulbs in favor of greener alternatives. Right-wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh cited Upton's promotion of eco-friendly light bulbs evidence that he shouldn't take the Energy...

Living on Earth: GELLERMAN: It's a two hour jet flight from Brisbane, Australia to what was once called "hell in paradise". Remote Norfolk Island is 13 square miles of volcanic rock rising out of the crystal clear South Pacific. It's home to two thousand people and one major tourist attraction. Each year 30 thousand tourists come to see what's left of Norfolk Island's 18th century penal colony; a deplorable place where inhumane conditions earned Norfolk its nickname. But Norfolk Island is now working on a new reputation....

Living on Earth: GELLERMAN: From the Jennifer and Ted Stanley Studios in Somerville, Massachusetts - this is Living on Earth. I'm Bruce Gellerman. A comprehensive climate- energy bill is dead in Congress, and the mid term elections put the final nail in the coffin. OBAMA: It's doubtful you could get the votes to pass it through the house this year, or next year, or the year after. GELLERMAN: But wait - don't bury climate change legislation just yet says President Obama: OBAMA: Cap and trade was just one...

Ireland: Extreme weather clouds the water for our river fish
http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/weekend/2010/1113/1224283187080.html
Irish Times: AS THE GREAT Atlantic swells approached Ireland last Sunday, rising under low pressure and driven by the wind, their rolling turbulence sent vibrations -- microseisms -- humming ahead through the coastal lakes and rivers. A tingling intimation of floods and swollen estuaries touched thousands of adult eels already primed for migration, their bellies silvered, their systems saltproofed. As our hillside spinney bowed to the gale in a midnight blizzard of leaves I pictured the long procession flashing...

http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/motoring/indian-minister-criticises-criminal-suvs-2132795.html
Agence France-Presse: India's environment minister attacked the use of large gas-guzzling sports utility vehicles (SUVs) on Indian roads as "criminal" on Friday, the Press Trust of India reported. At a UN workshop on low-carbon transport in India, Jairam Ramesh called for minimum fuel efficiency standards and said his country should overhaul its subsidy system for diesel, after deregulating petrol prices in June. "The use of vehicles like SUVs and BMW in countries like India is criminal," Ramesh said. "We have...
