House approves war bill with IMF funds Down to the wire Tuesday, Obama and his top aides had to intercede to hold Democrats together in the face of anti-war liberal blogs and conservative attacks on new financing for the International Monetary Fund (Politico)
E-Mail Surveillance Renews Concerns in Congress The National Security Agency is facing renewed scrutiny over the extent of its domestic surveillance program, with critics in Congress saying its recent intercepts of the private telephone calls and e-mail messages of Americans are broader than previously acknowledged, current and former officials said (New York Times)
Geoengineering: Workshop on Unilateral Planetary Scale Geoengineering There are a variety of strategies, such as injecting light-reflecting particles into the stratosphere, that might be used to modify the Earth’s atmosphere-ocean system in an attempt to slow or reverse global warming. - It might be possible to slow geoengineers by restricting access to rocket technology and heavy lift stratospheric- capable aircraft, but there are so many different available routes for geoengineering that it seems difficult to contain the technology. It might be possible to slow geoengineers by restricting access to rocket technology and heavy lift stratospheric- capable aircraft, but there are so many different available routes for geoengineering that it seems difficult to contain the technology. - Moreover, the relevant units may not be countries since geoengineering seems to be so inexpensive that large NGOs and rich individuals could do these things on their own.

Geo-engineering is no solution to climate change Tinkering with our entire planetary system is not a silver bullet. It's an expression of political despair, writes Greenpeace's Doug Parr - While the real climate solutions are blocked by vested interests seeking big bucks from coal, runways and forest destruction, our government tells us that it is taking "tough decisions" by cosying up to them. The scientist's focus on tinkering with our entire planetary system is not a dynamic new technological and scientific frontier, but an expression of political despair. (London Guardian)
DOE Testing Idea to Shoot Particles into Sky to Fight 'Global Warming' Government scientists are studying the feasibility of sending nearly microscopic particles of specially made glass into the Earth's upper atmosphere to try to dampen the effects of "global warming." - The Department of Energy did not speak with Cybercast News Service about the project, but scientists familiar with the line of research say it grows out of a proposal first articulated by Paul Crutzen, who won the 1995 Nobel Prize for his work discovering that there is a hole in the ozone over the Antarctic.

Geo-engineering: The radical ideas to combat global warming Artificial clouds and creating colossal blooms of oceanic algae are among the ideas scientists say must now be considered - "We are now, or soon will be, confronting issues of whether, when and how to engineer a climate that is more to our liking," argues Ken Caldeira, a leading climate scientist based at the Carnegie Institution in Stanford, California. If a decision is made to move ahead with climate engineering, he says, then it will be essential to understand the point at which the risks and costs of geo-engineering outweigh the impacts of global warming.

Atmospheric Science Program The Department of Energy's Atmospheric Science Program has as its long-term goal developing comprehensive understanding of the atmospheric processes that control the transport, transformation, and fate of energy related trace chemicals and particulate matter (Atmospheric Science Program)
Fluoride water 'causes cancer' Boys at risk from bone tumours, shock research reveals - New American research suggests that boys exposed to fluoride between the ages of five and 10 will suffer an increased rate of osteosarcoma - bone cancer - bet-ween the ages of 10 and 19 (London Guardian)
Study Finds High-Fructose Corn Syrup Contains Mercury Almost half of tested samples of commercial high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) contained mercury, which was also found in nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products where HFCS is the first- or second-highest labeled ingredient, according to two new U.S. studies (Washington Post)
Studies find mercury in much U.S. corn syrup Food processors and the corn syrup industry group attacked the findings as flawed and outdated, but the researchers said it was important for people to know about any potential sources of the toxic metal in their food (Reuters)
Porton Down It is now more than ninety years since the "experimental ground" was set up at Porton Down to provide a proper scientific basis for the British use of chemical warfare, in response to the earlier German use of this means of war in 1915 (UK Ministry Of Defense)
Timeline: Porton Down Laboratory The Ministry of Defence's announcement that it is to award £3m in compensation to 360 veterans of chemical weapons tests has put the spotlight on the Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down, near Salisbury (BBC)
U.S. Admits Bio-Weapons Tests The tests included releasing deadly nerve agents in Alaska and spraying bacteria over Hawaii - also tested nerve agents in Canada and Britain in conjunction with those two countries, and biological and chemical weapons in at least two other states, Maryland and Florida (CBS)
Operation bacterium secret biological warfare tests on the public - The undercover operation, which took place in 1964-65, was part of a nationwide program of so-called 'vulnerability' testing designed to gauge the impact of an enemy-launched epidemic of smallpox (Washington Monthly)
