Kill Your Own

Friday, February 5th, 2010

Apparently, the government of the USA can now kill their own subjects without going through the inconvenient process of trial and sentencing. I guess what’s good enough for foreigners is good enough for citizens.

China Must Lead

Friday, February 5th, 2010

A perceptive article from China, graciously translated by our friends at the European Tribune. The West bears responsibility for the last two hundred years worth of accumulated carbon emissions in the air. But the West can wait, for they will feel less pain from the coming changes, and the developing nations will bear the brunt of Nature’s fury.

“they can afford to wait longer than we can”

“reducing emissions is in the greatest interest of developing countries.”

Truly, the last shall be first and the first shall be last.

Never Heard Again

Extinction isn’t just for species. Ideas die. Cultures die.

What does it mean for a language to die ?

“…one of the world’s oldest languages – Bo – had come to an end. ”

The last speaker has died.

“After the death of her parents, Boa was the last Bo speaker for 30 to 40 years.”

“She was often very lonely…”

No Mo Bo

China gets a lot more respect these days. The military-industrial-government complex in the USA is going to have to watch what they do in the future. Taiwan may have to be crossed off the sales list. Never mind, there are a lot of countries that China doesn’t yet care about. But losing a few billion has to hurt.

Shoot For The Moon?

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

In a budget plan put forth by the Obama administration, funding for NASA’s moon project would be cut. Under the plan, NASA would be phased out and turned over to commercial companies during the next six years. There has been an uproar over the abandonment of such a successful science program.

“The president’s proposed NASA budget begins the death march for the future of U.S. human space flight,” said Senator Richard Shelby, member of the appropriations subcommittee handling NASA funding.

“Congress cannot and will not sit back and watch the reckless abandonment of sound principles, a proven track record, a steady path to success, and the destruction of our human space flight program,” said Shelby of Alabama, whose home state has NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center.
