Increasing the Clean Use of Illinois Coal
Senator Obama worked with Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) to secure $85 million for research into a process that will turn Illinois-basin coal into clean-burning fuel for cars and trucks (Fischer-Tropsch fuels). Coal fuel has powered all of South Africa's cars and trucks for the last 50 years. The research could help us one day satisfy our energy needs from Illinois' coal mines instead of Saudi Arabia's oil fields.
"The American coal community applauds the leadership of Senators Bunning and Obama. . . America's coal reserves . . . can be utilized to provide ultra-clean transportation fuels for our armed forces, airlines and anyone interested in spending less at the pump to fill-up their vehicle. . . . Americans must take steps now to make greater use of our most abundant and affordable domestic source of energy: coal. This legislation is a big step in that direction."

"The balance of biodiversity has been upset. Wood duck and other bird species are returning to New Hampshire weeks earlier. Lilacs and honeysuckle are blooming earlier, warmer winters are moving the maple syrup season earlier in the year and lakes and rivers are freezing later and thawing earlier."
From the Union Leader:
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Global Warming, Hazard to Humankind Pyongyang, March 25 (KCNA) -- It is an important issue related to the existence of humankind to prevent global warming. Yellow dust phenomena, which have been raised as a serious ecological and environmental problem in the international community, are frequent occurrences with a strong intensity owing to the desertification quickened by global warming. This year the DPRK has suffered severe damages by the yellow sand winds which have come earlier than previous years. The strong yellow sand winds have sharply reduced hours of sunshine and solar radiation, which caused a considerable fall of temperature; they have adversely affected the growth of animals and plants, natural environment and operation of precision machines. The number of those suffering from respiratory and eye troubles has increased and the yield of crops is likely to be decreased. Global warming also causes abnormal weather phenomena including El Nino and La Nina, which incur torrential rainfalls, heavy snowfalls, long-spell droughts, typhoons and whirlwinds, bringing about terrible disasters to people. The DPRK has consistently directed great efforts to the land management and environmental protection in order to prevent global warming.

"You have destroyed nature with your industrial waste and gases more than any other nation in history. Despite this, you refuse to sign the Kyoto agreement so that you can secure the profit of your greedy companies and industries" al Queda leader Osama bin Laden wrote in a 2002 "letter to the American people".
Fundraiser for gay hip-hop Homorevolution Tour to go down this weekend in Long Beach, California. Organizer Deadlee: "I enjoy the political side. I want to be a revolutionary in homo rap. Homo rap is fresh. It comes from a different place. There's a struggle in it. Coming out is still tough for a lot of blacks and Latinos. There's still a lot of hate at us for being gay."
