Robber fly - Nature photographer Thomas Shahan specializes in amazing portraits of tiny insects. It isn't easy. Shahan says that this Robber Fly (Holcocephala fusca), for instance, is "skittish" and doesn't like its picture taken.

“… 4 - Energy (again)

The natural resources of the planet are finite and will not support the continuation of what you've been doing. We've been saying this for a decade. Watch for increased science and increased funding for alternate ways of creating electricity (finally). Watch for the very companies who have the most to lose being the ones who fund it. It is the beginning of a full realization that a change of thinking is at hand. You can take things from Gaia that are energy, instead of physical resources. We speak yet again about geothermal, about tidal, about wind. Again, we plead with you not to over-engineer this. For one of the things that Human Beings do in a technological age is to over-engineer simple things. Look at nuclear - the most over-engineered and expensive steam engine in existence!

Your current ideas of capturing energy from tidal and wave motion don't have to be technical marvels. Think paddle wheel on a pier with waves, which will create energy in both directions [waves coming and going] tied to a generator that can power dozens of neighborhoods, not full cities. Think simple and decentralize the idea of utilities. The same goes for wind and geothermal. Think of utilities for groups of homes in a cluster. You won't have a grid failure if there is no grid. This is the way of the future, and you'll be more inclined to have it sooner than later if you do this, and it won't cost as much….”

Merkel and Pelosi meet about climate change

By Louis Charbonneau


BERLIN (Reuters) - Climate change is a global problem that requires unity and "multilateral" agreements if it is to be defeated, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Tuesday.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is hosting a Group of Eight (G8) summit in the Baltic resort of Heiligendamm next week, but has so far failed to convince President George W. Bush to sign up to firm targets to combat global warming.

Pelosi is in Germany as part of a European tour to highlight congressional concern about climate change.

"I emphasized that we are of the opinion that we need multilateral agreements in the future if we are to combat this global challenge on a global level," Merkel told reporters after meeting Pelosi and a bipartisan delegation of key House members.

Bush has been blocking an emerging consensus within the G8 in favor of firm targets for cutting carbon dioxide emissions.

Pelosi, the leader of the opposition Democrats which gained control of both houses of Congress last November, made it clear that she was siding with Merkel against Bush.

"I completely associate myself with the chancellor's comments that these solutions must be multilateral," she said.

U.S. resistance to emissions limits has diminished hopes that the summit can pave the way for negotiations to expand and extend the Kyoto Protocol on climate change beyond 2012.

German Environment Minister Sigmar Gabriel told German television the G8 leaders could avoid failure by agreeing a clear mandate for the (U.N.) climate conference at the end of the year in Bali.

Washington is demanding that all quantitative targets for combating global warming be removed from a G8 draft communique prepared by the Germans and wants all references to the December Bali meeting watered down, according to a copy seen by Reuters.

The United States is the world's biggest emitter of carbon dioxide, while Germany is Europe's biggest air polluter.

The Bush administration withdrew from the Kyoto Protocol in 2001. Despite pressure from Germany, Britain and other allies to accept mandatory "greenhouse gas" limits, Washington mainly wants to focus on promoting environmentally friendly technology.


On Sunday, Pelosi urged Bush to compromise with the other G8 members -- Germany, Britain, France, Italy, Japan, Canada and Russia. She said U.S. legislators were determined to tackle climate change and would soon be passing new legislation.

"We will have legislation probably by the fourth of July," she said, adding that further legislation would be introduced later in the year. She gave no details.

Both Merkel and Pelosi expressed support for green technology, the centerpiece of Bush's environmental policy.

"We agree that technological development and innovation are key," Merkel said about her discussion with Pelosi.

G8 envoys met last week to try to iron out their differences on climate change but failed to bridge the gap, according to one official familiar with the talks.

They will meet again on Monday in Berlin, two days before the summit, in another attempt to forge a compromise. Merkel is also expected to press her case at a lunch with Bush in Heiligendamm on June 6 before other leaders arrive.
