*******www.instablogs****/ White Collar Jihadists have become a cause for growing concern following the arrest of technology-savvy members of a militant group that exploited insecure wireless networks to send messages. The suspects sent e-mail claiming responsibility for serial bombings in the major Indian cities of Delhi and Ahmedabad. White collar Jihadists concern India It is extremely worrying that Islamist terror groups have targeted the information technology and engineering sectors, in a successful effort to give India's jihadist movement a quantum jump in skills and ideological focus. Till his arrest believed to be a model citizen Mohammed Mansoor Asghar Peerbhoy, worked as a software engineer at multinational Yahoo India is a part of the militant group which sent e-mail claiming responsibility for serial bombings in the major Indian cities. We need to be vigilant and patch poorly secured wireless networks especially after the arrest of technology-savvy members of a militant group that exploited insecure wireless networks to send messages. The technique used by the militants is similar to "wardriving," where hackers roam around to detect and access Wi-Fi networks with security weaknesses. India has recently witnessed a spate of serial bomb blasts that has put the country in a state of alert. We as citizens need be more vigilant and perform our own bit cautiously and responsibly. Philippines is considering asking China to "help out" businessmen in the country who imported milk products contaminated with melamine. The government is expected to make a representation with the Chinese embassy to seek compensation for the businessmen who incurred losses. Philippines demands Chinese compensation Two groups of people have suffered as a result of melamine-tainted Chinese milk powder — those who consumed the milk and milk products and employees and business owners of related industries. The first group includes those who have suffered physical harm. The second group consists of owners and employees of firms that purchased contaminated powder for use in their products and then had to take them off the shelves. These businesses have incurred financial losses and the scandal has tarnished their reputations. There are also other manufacturers whose products do not contain tainted milk but who have still suffered because many consumers remain afraid of buying dairy products. These businesses have lost orders and their reputations have been damaged. Several manufacturers and retailers have recalled and destroyed products that contain milk imported from China. Since many companies fear retribution in claiming direct compensation from the Chinese government, Philippine authorities should pick up the responsibility to represent these companies in dealing with China. The world's largest biomass power plant running exclusively on chicken manure has opened in the Netherlands, which will deliver renewable electricity to 90,000 households. The project will give a major boost to green energy within the country. Chicken manure to power 90000 homes Many European countries, including the Netherlands, suffer under an excess of different types of animal manure that pollute the environment. The world's largest biomass power plant running exclusively on chicken manure has opened in the Netherlands, which will deliver renewable electricity to 90,000 households. The power plant has a capacity of 36.5 megawatts, and will generate more than 270 million kWh of electricity per year. The biomass power plant is more than merely carbon neutral. If the chicken manure were to be spread out over farm land, it would release not only CO2, but also methane, a very potent greenhouse gas. By using the manure for power generation, the release of methane is avoided. The biomass power plant will utilize approximately 440,000 tons of chicken manure, roughly one third of the total amount produced each year in the Netherlands. As the Swedish Academy enters final deliberations for this year's award, permanent secretary Horace Engdahl said the United States is too insular and ignorant to compete with Europe when it comes to great writing. The comments have invoked fuming response from many with in US. Comment by Nobel Jury member Anybody who has read Mark Twain, will be fast to point out his famous quotation "Why I go so far as to say that any library is a good library that does not contain a volume by Jane Austen; Even if it contains no other book". The quotation tells us about the hyperbole attached with the decisions of the some people who have taken up the power to tell us what is good or bad. And United States have been a sufferer in this regard. Why not how much United States has always been in forefront in supporting creativity and writers like Bukowaski, Hemmingway, Bellow, John Steinbeck, Toni Morrison, De lillo, Roth, Updike, Pynchon, etc. have produced path breakers .. such names have never found the deserved appreciation. It is a shame that a high member of award jury says that United States is too insular and ignorant to compete with Europe. *******www.instablogs****/

This is a very environmentally friendly fuel, made from natural vegetable oils such as soybean, canola, and animal fat that produces anywhere between 40 and 80 percent less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional fuels. And it generates a whopping 90 percent more energy than it takes to produce it. But there are still problems with the biodiesel industry. Since its produced from food crops, it has caused inflation in agricultural products in a time when all food costs are climbing. And Europe's demand for biodiesel is to blame for a group of Southeast Asian farmers who burned down acres of rainforest and replaced them with palm plantations, which released a huge amount of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere in the name of a biofuel meant to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions. And production of biodiesel is still limited... only 250 million gallons were produced in 2006, a number that's not growing quickly. And demand for biodiesel is driving up prices for foods like vegetable oil, which can cause problems for poor countries who need it for food purposes. Biodiesel is one of the biofuels that is fueling the global “food vs fuel” debate about whether things like vegetable oil should be used to solve the energy crisis as an alternate fuel or used as food to feed hungry people first. Biodisel is a clean burning alternative fuel that does not take a lot of energy to produce... we just need to produce more of it so that there is enough to go around to satisfy both sides of the “food vs fuel” controversy.

The Facts Burning coal is a leading source of global warming pollution. "GHG Emissions and Sinks 1990–2006,” US EPA 2008 Burning coal is the dirtiest way we produce electricity. “Carbon Dioxide Emissions from the Generation of Electric Power in the United States,” US DOE 2000.; “GHG Emissions and Sinks 1990-2006,” US EPA 2008 There are no homes in America powered by "clean" coal. IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme CO2 Capture and Storage Database; Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies Program at MIT, CO2 Capture and Storage Project Database CO2 emissions from U.S. coal-based electricity are greater than emissions from all the cars and trucks in America. “GHG Emissions and Sinks 1990-2006,” US EPA 2008 The coal industry is spending millions advertising "clean" coal, but not a single "clean" coal power plant exists in the U.S. today. “Big Coal Campaigning to Keep Its Industry on Candidates' Minds,” Wall Street Journal, Oct. 20, 2008; IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme CO2 Capture and Storage Database; Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies Program at MIT, CO2 Capture and Storage Project Database "While you might have heard the phrase ‘clean’ coal during the presidential campaign, it's actually an oxymoron." Brian Williams, NBC News, Nov 18, 2008 There are roughly 600 coal plants producing electricity in the U.S. Not one of them captures and stores its global warming pollution. “Electricity Facts,” US DOE 2008; IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme CO2 Capture and Storage Database; Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies Program at MIT, CO2 Capture and Storage Project Database "'Clean' coal is like a healthy cigarette." Blan Holman, attorney, Southern Environmental Law Center in Charleson, S.C. There is not a single large-scale demonstration "clean" coal plant in the U.S. today. IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme CO2 Capture and Storage Database; Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies Program at MIT, CO2 Capture and Storage Project Database Virtually all the new coal plants that have been proposed will, just like their predecessors, release 100 percent of the CO2 they produce into the atmosphere, where it will linger—and contribute to global warming. "Coal Power in a Warming World: A Sensible Transition to Cleaner Energy Options," Union of Concerned Scientists. Oct. 2008. Although carbon sequestration has been the subject of considerable research and analysis, it has yet to be demonstrated in the form of commercial-scale, fully integrated projects at coal-fired power plants. “Coal Power in a Warming World: A Sensible Transition to Cleaner Energy Options,” Union of Concerned Scientists. Oct. 2008. An investment in wind power produces almost three times as many jobs as the same investment in coal power. And an investment in solar power produces almost four times as many jobs, and energy efficiency, almost thirty times as many jobs as coal power. Based on analysis of the new energy economy released by Earth Policy Institute, Nov. 2008 "We don't have a plant here in the United States today that has commercially installed carbon capture technology." Joe Lucas, Vice President of Communications, American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE). From: “Can Coal Be Clean? A Debate Between Michael Brune of Rainforest Action Network and Joe Lucas of American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity.” Democracy Now! The War and Peace Report, Oct. 2008 "Without the price on greenhouse gas emissions that is delivered by cap-and-trade mechanisms, CO2 capture and storage will remain a daydream." Jeroen van der Veer, CEO of Shell. July 2008 Madrid. Shell, “Delivering Energy for Sustainable Growth. The European Perspective," The 19th World Petroleum Congress Plenary Session, Madrid, June 30, 2008.
