Turning Up the Heat on the Planet

"Imperialism has produced a wasteful and destructive pattern of
economic activity and industrial development. Its
profit-above-all-else, blind expansionary nature, its turning of more
and more of nature into a commodity, its wars and weapons of mass
destruction--all this is strangling the fundamental ecosystems of the planet."

Draft Programme of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, May 2001

"Over a hundred governments represented on the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), concluded their meeting in Geneva by
accepting a report which states that climate change is already having
a 'widespread and coherent impact' on the planet, and that it is
occurring in all environments and on all continents. Representing
humanity's combined knowledge on the impacts of climate change, and
based on observations in around 3,000 scientific studies, the
1,000-page scientific report puts an end to debate over whether
climate change is occurring and finds that the results could be
dramatic and far reaching.... According to the IPCC, firm evidence of
change is already visible over 420 different physical and biological
systems--from the shrinkage of glaciers on all continents and the
decline in Arctic sea-ice to the lengthening of frost-free seasons
and the increased frequency of extreme rainfall. Already species of
mammals, invertebrates, reptiles, birds, amphibians, and insects are
being affected."

World Wildlife Federation, February 19, 2001

To the White House Energy Task Force the tundra, coastal shelf and
woodlands seem naked without a drilling platform. Their national
energy plan will open up public and protected lands to oil drilling
in unprecedented ways. President Bush has asked his Interior
Secretary Gale Norton to inventory the public lands to better
identify potential resources that can be handed over to corporations
for exploitation. ~ Revolutionary Worker Online

I also entered Gale Norton's name in the search engine at the web
site, itself, and got some more interesting results:
