Shetland's Viking wind farm plan 21.5.2009 The Guardian -- Front Page
For more than 30 years, life on Shetland has been sweet. Residents enjoy state of the art leisure centres, smooth roads and luxurious old people's homes the envy of every other islander in Scotland. Thanks to a unique deal brokered in 1973 over the building of the Sullom Voe oil terminal, life on Britain's most northerly and weather-battered island group has been cushioned by an oil fund. For every barrel, Shetland levied a small fee: £200m has been spent improving the lives of its 22,000 residents, and the islands' trust still has £180m in reserve. The oil money has stopped flowing and Shetland faces a new energy controversy which divides its close-knit population: the prospect of hosting Europe's largest onshore wind farm, a 600MW project ...

It's Nature's Law: When People Arrive, Animals Vanish 20.5.2009 Truthout.com
Washington - It seems to be a law of nature that when people come, animals go. It happened in the past, and it's happening again now. About 11,000 years ago, more than 130 species, including most large mammals such as the woolly mammoth, saber-tooth cat and a 5-ton ground sloth, suddenly vanished from North America. Scientists are still debating the reasons, but two leading suspects are excessive hunting by humans who'd newly arrived from the Old World and devastating human-borne diseases. "People come and animals begin to disappear,'' said Ross MacPhee, the curator of the mammal collection at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. A third commonly cited cause of the massive extinction is climate change at the end of the Ice ...
