In The News:
Thanks to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the commentary and news audio files this morning.

A man who claimed to be an environmental activist (ie. "...human population growth and modern industrial development imperil the planet.") with a history of harassment took a chrome-plated six shooter and what appeared to be explosives, then he walked into the Discovery Channel's communication HQ in Silver Springs Maryland and took hostages. He was dead a few hours later at the hands of a police sniper. More at the Christian Science Monitor.

Meanwhile, REAL environmental activists are doing this:
Go Beyond Oil - GreenpeaceFour expert climbers in inflatable speedboats evaded Danish Warship commanders and safely occupied the Cairn Energy oil rig off Greenland in the Arctic. They are now hanging in tents suspended from the rig, 45 feet above the icy ocean. Cairn energy has shut down operations, admitting a serious wrench in their works as they race to finish exploration before Winter conditions set in.

Baffin Bay, Greenland – Campaigners have evaded a huge military security operation to scale a controversial oil rig in the freezing seas off Greenland. At dawn this morning four expert climbers in inflatable speedboats dodged Danish Navy commandos before climbing up the inside of the rig and hanging from it in tents suspended from ropes, halting its drilling operation (video and stills available).

The climbers have enough supplies to occupy the hanging tents for several days. If they succeed in stopping drilling for just a short time then the operators, Britain’s Cairn Energy, will struggle to meet a tight deadline to complete the exploration before winter ice conditions force it to abandon the search for oil off Greenland until next year.

Sim McKenna from the United States, one of the campaigners hanging fifteen metres above the bitterly cold Arctic ocean, said: “We’ve got to keep the energy companies out of the Arctic and kick our addiction to oil, that’s why we’re going to stop this rig from drilling for as long as we can. The BP Gulf oil disaster showed us it’s time to go beyond oil. The drilling rig we’re hanging off could spark an Arctic oil rush, one that would pose a huge threat to the climate and put this fragile environment at risk.”

McKenna, who had been helping with the Gulf clean-up operation before joining the Greenpeace ship the Esperanza in the Arctic, continued: “Right now this platform is the most important oil rig in the world. If we can stop them striking oil here in the next few weeks we’ll hold back the oil giants for at least another year, hopefully gaining enough time for a global ban on dangerous deepwater drilling projects like this to be enacted.”

A Danish Thetis-class 120m warship, commandos in speed boats and a flotilla of police boats have been shadowing the Esperanza for the last nine days. The rig has been forced to stop drilling because any breach of the 500m security zone around it results in a routine shutdown. It is currently drilling in volcanic rock, having failed to strike oil, and is due to move soon to a new drill site 100km away. The campaigners hope today’s occupation will delay the move or even cause it to be cancelled. [In Full]
OK, so now we know who's crossing but will we catch them? Observation drones have begun patrolling the Mexican Border.

There will be talks today between Israel, the Palestinian PLO faction, Jordan and Egypt under the moderation of Hillary Clinton. There are so many Palestinian refugees now that if they all had the 'right of return' and used it, they would overwhelm the voting in Israel.

In China there are now 4,000 more dead as monsoons and flooding continue.
