30 Years To Armageddon
Globe and Mail | Submitted by: DiRGE

More than a billion people lack safe water. Nearly a third of the world's fish stocks are damaged, partly because the world's governments have encouraged too much fishing, subsidizing the industry by about $20-billion (U.S.) a year. The planet's forested area has fallen by 2.4 per cent, 3.9 billion hectares, in the past decade alone. More than 50 million hectares of that was in Africa."

Village Voice | Submitted by: anonymous
"Thomas White used to be proud of his resume. When he was appointed secretary of the army last May, his online bio boasted about his 11 years as a senior exec at Enron. Then that nest of thieves collapsed, and suddenly it wasn't so cool to have been a big shot there. It was time to apply some serious splotches of white-out to White's life. Swiftly, quietly, the official biography for the army's top dog was changed, but cybersleuths soon unearthed the original."
