Science bombshell explodes myth of clean coal: Mountaintop “mining permits are being issued despite the preponderance of scientific evidence that impacts are pervasive and irreversible and that mitigation cannot compensate for losses.”
January 7, 2010

    A stunning new article in the journal Science should once and for all kill the myth of “clean coal.” The 11-author study, “Mountaintop Mining Consequences” (subs. req’d) on mountaintop mining with valley fills (MTM/VF) is an analysis of “current peer-reviewed studies and of new water-quality data from WV [West Virigina] streams.”

• Washington Post: Scientists say mountaintop mining should be stopped
• Guardian UK: US scientists demand government ban on mountaintop mining Analysis of damage done leaves Obama no choice but to ban the highly destructive practice, say the authors of a new study
• "COAL COUNTRY" The Movie:
    COAL COUNTRY tells of the dramatic struggle around the use of coal, which provides over half the electricity in America. In Appalachia, miners and residents are locked in conflict: is mining and processing coal essential to providing good jobs, or is it destroying the land, water and air? What does this mean for the rest of America and the world?

    Info on Podcast #83 Published on 07 Jan 2010 by admin in Podcast Info -- Yemenis trapped at Gitmo, Accountablity for BushCo? British journalist Andy Worthington is our expert on America’s Gulag and wrote The Guantanamo Files. Charlotte Dennett is a journalist and lawyer; her book The People v. Bush has just been published. Worthington talks about the new hysteria produced by the failed terrorist action on Christmas Day and the fear projected by American politicians of both parties. He corrects the record about the former Gitmo prisoners released under Bush who are now leading al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula, about Liz and Dick Cheney’s rants and about the 6 Yemenis released in December and more than 80 who remain. Dennett was a candidate for Vermont Attorney General in 2008, and based her campaign in part on Vincent Bugliosi’s legal strategy to prosecute Bush for murder. She talks about her campaign and the ongoing struggle for accountability, which is largely opposed by ObamaCo, and profiles activists like Michael Ratner, Glenn Greenwald, David Swanson and the ACLU as they continue to fight for justice and constitutional rule.
    Info on Podcast #82 Published on 04 Jan 2010 by admin in Podcast Info -- Goodman and McGovern on CIA deaths in Afghanistan. Melvin A.

They comment on the suicide bomber who killed 7 CIA agents in Afghanistan, the CIA’s role in the drone attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan, the likely cycle of vengeance that will follow, and Obama’s decision to commit more US troops.
