NOTICIAS AMBIENTALISTAS INTERNACIONALES
20 de Junio de 2001


1) Planta en Murmansk reprocesara desechos radiactivos
Un proyecto internacional ecologico no comercial para la modernizacion y
expansion de una instalacion para reprocesar desechos liquidos radiactivos
ha sido implementada en la empresa de reparación tecnológica Atomflot. Tomo
5 años implementar el proyecto. La facilidad, capaz de reprocesar
virtualmente todos los desechos radiactivos tales como los de barcos navales
propulsados con energia nuclear y naves civiles, ha empezado su operacion.
Los participantes del proyecto -expertos de Rusia, Noruega y EE.UU.-
anunciaron esto en una conferencia en Murmansk el Miercoles 20 de Junio.


2) Los educadores de todo el mundo estan por tomar la palabra acerca de
Alimentos y Temas Ambientales en una conferencia en San Francisco, EE.UU.
Alimentar al mundo mientras se sostiene el ambiente sera de alta importancia
en la agenda cuando mas de 200 educadores de universidades de todo el mundo
se encuentren en San Francisco, EE.UU., este verano.


3) Las ostras australianas mandan a unos Vandalos Ambientales a la carcel
La ostras en el estado de Queensaland, Australia, se convirtieron en
testigos clave por primera vez en un caso de ofensa ambiental. Despues de
dos meses de poner ostras sin contaminacion en las aguas poco profundas de
Eprapah Creek, cerca de la propiedad de la compañia reprocesadora de
desechos Universal Abrasives' Brisbane, las ostras fueron medidas otra vez
para ver si estaban contaminadas con quimicos toxicos, y mostraron lecturas
significativas. Como resultado, el director de la compañia fue sentenciado a
18 meses de carcel y una multa de 100.000 dolares australianos (52.000
dolares de EE.UU.)


4) Por desarrollarse 3 industrias mayores de proteccion ambiental en China
Recientemente, la Comision China de Comercio Economico y la Comision Estatal
de Proyectos de China, el Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnologia, el Ministerio
de Finanzas y el Ministerio de Construccion resolvieron conjuntamente < >
que asienta el esquema total para cultivar la industria de proteccion
ambiental en China.


5) Senador de Tennesse, EE.UU., hace un llamado a Bush para proteger los
Parques Nacionales de la contaminacion del aire; grupo conservacionista dice
que la contaminacion del aire esta dañando los Parques Nacionales.
Lo siguiente fue publicado hoy por la Asociacion Conservacionista de Parques
Nacionales de EE.UU.:
El Senador Fred Thompson (R-Tenn) envio una carta hoy al presidente Geroge
W. Bush urgiendolo a apoyar protecciones de aire limpio mas fuertes para los
Parques Nacionales. El senador escribio que el Parque Nacional de Las
Grandes Montañas Fumarolas, situado en el Este de Tennesse y el Oeste de
Carolina del Norte, "a menudo referido como la joya de la corona del sistema
de Parques Nacionales" y el parque mas visitado, es "argumentablemente el
Parque Nacional mas amenazado de la nacion". El senador cito la
contaminacion del aire como la mayor amenaza del parque, y escribio que "lo
mas chocante para mi es que, de acuerdo a los oficiales del parque, la
calidad del aire es tan pobre durante los meses del verano que pasear por
las caminerias es mas peligroso para su salud que caminar por las calles de
Manhattan".


6) CSIRO: El agua limitara el crecimiento economico de Australia
La falta de agua podria ser el mayor obstaculo para el crecimiento
economico, de acuerdo a CSRIO.
El crecimiento de las ciudades australianas, y la creciente demanda para un
desarrollo ambientalmente sostenible, hacen esencial una mejor
administracion del agua, dijo el Dr. Tony Priestley de CSIRO, "Si
continuamos desperdiciando el agua como lo hacemos ahora, el agua sera el
factor limitante en el desarrollo economico de Australia", dijo el Dr.
Priestley. "Calidad, no cantidad, es lo importante", dijo.


7)  Bush critica al congreso acerca del comercio
El presidente Bush dijo el miercoles que algunos en el congreso quienes se
la ponen dificil en sus negociaciones de comercio con condiciones
ambientales y de labor, son proteccionistas y partidarios del aislamiento.

1) Planta en Murmansk reprocesará desechos radiactivos
(Plant in Murmansk to reprocess radioactive waste)

Story Filed: Wednesday, June 20, 2001 8:31 AM EST

MURMANSK, Jun 20, 2001 (Itar-Tass via COMTEX) -- An international ecological
non-commercial project for the modernisation and expansion of an
installation to reprocess liquid radioactive waste has been implemented at
Atomflot repair technological enterprise. It took five years to implement
the project. The facility capable of reprocessing virtually all such waste
of nuclear-powered naval ships and civilian vessels had started its
operation. The participants in the project -- experts from Russia, Norway
and the United States -- announced this at a conference in Murmansk on
Wednesday.

Robert Dyer, head of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, said
the project is an example of cooperation of our countries in ensuring safe
environment. He said the effort made for better mutual understanding which
will come in handy in further cooperation.

Dyer noted particularly that the project uses the best technologies not only
of western countries but also of Russia. He said he was pleasantly surprised
by many programmes worked out by Russian colleagues whose novelty and
reliability attest, in his opinion, to Russians' successes in the area.

2) Los educadores de todo el mundo estan por tomar la palabra acerca de
Alimentos y Temas Ambientales en una conferencia en San Francisco, EE.UU.
(Educators Worldwide to Address Food, Environmental Issues at San Francisco
Conference)

Story Filed: Tuesday, June 19, 2001 10:24 PM EST

OAKLAND, Calif., Jun 19, 2001 (ASCRIBE NEWS via COMTEX) -- Feeding the world
while sustaining the environment will be high on the agenda when more than
200 educators from universities around the world meet in San Francisco this
summer.

A key issue at the July 12-14 Global Consortium of Higher Education and
Research for Agriculture conference will be how university leaders will
guide their institutions to better serve local food and environmental needs.

The importance placed on environmental and food production issues depends on
the food supply circumstances researchers and educators face in their home
countries, says Martin C. Jischke, president of Purdue University and the
consortium.

"Researchers in countries where food supplies are abundant and relatively
inexpensive will likely focus on environmental issues as they relate to food
production," Jischke says. "But researchers in countries struggling to feed
their populations may have a separate agenda as they seek ways to develop a
secure food supply."

"The conference will recognize different agricultural needs around the
world. Then, we will search for ways that new science, changing global food
systems and the university curriculum can find solutions for worldwide,
environmentally sustainable food production."

Most people attending the meeting will be research or academic directors,
deans, or university presidents. University administrators from Kenya,
India, New Zealand, Taiwan, Ukraine and the United States will talk about
issues ranging from biotechnology to the changing nature of food systems. In
addition, participants will initiate groups to work toward long-term
benefits that will address issues in global food production, agricultural
education, major research needs and institutional outreach programs.

"We are doing everything we can to make sure there is a balanced
representation from universities around the world so we can discuss global
agricultural issues from multiple perspectives," says David Sammons,
director of International Programs in Agriculture at Purdue.

"The workgroups formed during the meeting will be vital for finding ways to
share ideas and knowledge across the planet," he says. "These workgroups
will continue after the summer conference and help pave the way for
strengthened global partnerships for agricultural education and research."

The goal of conference organizers is to find ways to align agricultural
research and education to better address global food production at the local
level.

"Our future graduates and researchers must be globally aware, but also
equipped to find solutions relevant to local needs," Sammons says.

In addition to food security and environmental issues, the conference
participants will look at specific topics such as biotechnology, changes in
farming systems and the future of agricultural higher education and
research.

"We are delighted that California will be the host site for this important
exchange," says W.R. Gomes, University of California vice president,
Agriculture and Natural Resources. "California is greatly involved with
agriculture in many parts of the world, so we look forward to the
developments that transpire as a result of this conference."

The consortium was established in 1998 to foster cooperation and improvement
of agricultural higher education and research institutions. During its July
1999 inaugural conference in Amsterdam, the group focused on leadership of
higher education in agriculture. The consortium includes more than 260
universities in 134 countries.

3) Las ostras australianas mandan a unos Vandalos Ambientales a la carcel
(Oysters Sends Environmental Vandals into Jail)

Story Filed: Wednesday, June 20, 2001 4:01 AM EST

CANBERRA, Jun 20, 2001 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- Oysters in Queensland state,
Australia, became the key witnesses for the first time in an environmental
offense case.

According to the Australian Associated Press, Environment Minister Dean
Wells told parliament Wednesday the Environmental Protection Agency had
placed uncontaminated oysters in the tidal areas of Eprapah Creek, near
waste reprocessing company Universal Abrasives' Brisbane property.

After two months the oysters were again measured for toxic chemicals,
particularly the extremely toxic tributyl tin used in marine anti-fouling
paints, and showed significant readings.

"This demonstrated that these living organisms were drawing toxic substances
from the surrounding environment adjacent to the property owned by Universal
Abrasives," he said.

As a result, the company's director was sentenced to 18 months in jail and
fined 100,000 Australian dollars (52,000 U.S. dollars) while the co-director
was given a suspended nine-month sentence and fined 50,000 Australian
dollars (26,000 U.S. dollars). The company was fined a total of 325,000
Australian dollars (169,000 U.S. dollars).

"Unfortunately for polluters, oysters proved to be a key indicator of
environmental malpractice," the minister said.

4) Por desarrollarse 3 industrias mayores de proteccion ambiental en China
(To Develop Three Biggest Environmental Protection Industries)

Story Filed: Wednesday, June 20, 2001 9:36 AM EST

BEIJING, Jun 20, 2001 (AsiaPort via COMTEX) -- Recently, China Economic
Trade Commission and State Project Commission, Ministry of Science and Tech,
Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Construction jointly issued <> that settled
down whole scheme for cultivating the environmental protection industry.

The Idea clearly indicates, at present, there are three biggest key areas of
the development of country's environmental protection industry: first,
including environmental protective tech and equipment, environmental
protective materials and environmental protective medicines; second, is
resource compositive usage as a key of compositive usage and callback usage;
third, is the environmental service which is a main content of environmental
consultation, information and tech service, environmental engineering and
pollution safeguarding infrastructure operation. The country will launch
some beneficial policies to encourage and help the environmental protection
industries to rapidly develop.

The Idea says, besides those China's issued policies related to encourage
the development of environmental protection industries, this country will
further study and set down beneficial policies to boost environmental
protection industries to grow. In future, China will make great effort to
clear up market which baffles the development of environmental protection
industries.

5) Senador de Tennesse, EE.UU., hace un llamado a Bush para proteger los

(Tennessee Senator Calls on Bush to Protect National Parks from Air
Pollution; Conservation Group Says Pollution is Damaging Parks)

Story Filed: Wednesday, June 20, 2001 4:01 PM EST

Jun 20, 2001 (U.S. Newswire via COMTEX) -- CLINTON, Tenn., June 20 /U.S.
Newswire/ -- The following was released today by the National Parks
Conservation Association:

Senator Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) sent a letter Tuesday to President George W.
Bush urging him to support stronger clean air protections for national
parks. Senator Thompson wrote that Great Smoky Mountains National Park, in
eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina, "often referred to as the
crown jewel of the National Park System" and the most visited national park
is "arguably the nation's most threatened national park."

Senator Thompson cited air pollution as a major park threat. "Air quality
problems have landed the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on the National
Parks Conservation Association's list of the 10 most endangered parks in the
country for the past three years," he wrote. "Most shocking to me is that,
according to park officials, air quality in the Smokies is so poor during
summer months that hiking on backcountry trails is more hazardous to your
health than walking along the streets of Manhattan."

Senator Thompson lauded a recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
announcement that the Administration intends to "move forward with a rule to
reduce regional haze." "This rule is an important step toward addressing air
quality problems in our national parks, and I believe we can do more," he
added.

The senator closed by saying, "I want you to know that I will support any
reasonable requirements you determine appropriate that will protect air
quality in the Smokies and in our other national parks."

In a 1999 rule, EPA required that air in 156 national parks and wilderness
areas be restored to a pristine condition, mandating that power plants
upgrade their systems to reduce pollution emissions. The plants were given
until 2070 to comply. The Bush White House has slowed the momentum of the
proposal, drafted during the Clinton Administration, but EPA administrator
Christie Whitman is expected to open the emissions-reduction proposal to
public comment this week.

"Senator Thompson understa- 1/2the wisdom of a long-term investment," said
Don Barger, Southeast regional director for the National Parks Conservation
Association. "If we increase energy production from fossil fuels, we must
simultaneously reduce the existing pollution that is damaging our parks and
our lungs. By closing the 1977 loophole for the older, polluting plants, we
can do both."

"What's good for the parks truly is good for people, too," Barger added.
"Protecting our national parks is a test. If we pass the test, our children
get to enjoy greater health."

6) CSIRO: El agua limitara el crecimiento economico de Australia
(CSIRO: Water limit to Australia's economic growth)

Story Filed: Wednesday, June 20, 2001 4:20 AM EST

Jun 20, 2001 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Lack of water could be the major
obstacle to Australia's economic growth, according to CSIRO.

The growth of Australia's cities, and the increasing demand for
environmentally sustainable development, makes better water management
essential, says CSIRO's Dr Tony Priestley, National Manager Water Supply for
the Built Environment Sector.

"If we continue to waste water as we do now, water will be the limiting
factor in Australia's economic development," says Dr Priestley.

"Our cities are growing rapidly. We can't take any more water from our
catchments, so we have to use the water we have better - increasing
efficiency, recycling and reuse," says Dr Priestley.

"Quality, not quantity, is the important thing," he says.

Speakers at a recent forum in Melbourne on 'The Cost of Free Water'
identified options and problems which could be overcome by research.

According to Dr Priestley, water management in Australia's cities urgently
needs the 'triple bottom line' approach, to account for all sources of
water, to address the socio-economic aspects of water use, and to integrate
water and energy conservation.

"A national program would strengthen partnerships and ensure that research
is well co-ordinated and that outcomes are widely communicated to the people
who need it," says Dr Peter Dillon of CSIRO Land and Water.

"We will also learn a lot from sharing the results of current best practice
from those urban areas trialing water re-use."

A national research program will also be vital if Australian innovation and
expertise is to increase its market share in the $1000 billion environmental
technologies world market.

"Australia has only begun the task of increasing the value of our water
use - a prerequisite for sustained Australian development," says Dr Dillon.

Speakers at the forum highlighted examples such as water facilitating
innovative trade waste agreements with industry, setting prices based on
loads of specific contaminants in line with environmental objectives, and in
forming community engagement and sustainability policies that lead to
innovative solutions. These solutions have reduced costs for industry as
well as reducing per capita water use.

"We need to become more creative, improving the way we manage our water and
making sure we are meeting the needs of the community, the environment and
industry," said Dr Priestley.

7)  Bush critica al congreso acerca del comercio
(Bush Criticizes Congress Over Trade)

Story Filed: Wednesday, June 20, 2001 5:10 PM EDT

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush said Wednesday that some in Congress who
would saddle his trade negotiations with labor and environmental conditions
are protectionist and isolationist.

Bush's remarks to the Business Roundtable, an association of corporate
executives, came as Senate Finance Committee chairman Max Baucus said he was
increasingly pessimistic that Congress would grant Bush new trading
authority this year.

Bush told the group that ``fast track'' or trade promotion authority was
essential to his ability to be effective in trade negotiations. But he said
``there are some who want to put codicils on the trade promotion authority
for one reason: they don't like free trade. They're protectionists and
isolationists and we must reject that kind of thought here in America.''

``If you believe in improving the environment and helping the labor
conditions in countries, don't wall off those countries. Don't enhance
poverty by refusing to allow there to be trade,'' he said.

Baucus, D-Mont., opening a hearing on trade promotion authority, said
positions appear to be hardening on the issue of whether labor and
environmental concerns would be addressed in trade legislation.

``No bill is preferable to a bad bill,'' he said. ``If that means working
beyond this year, I believe we must take the time to do it correctly.''

Last week, House Republicans introduced legislation that grants the
president trade promotion authority without specifically mentioning labor
rights and environmental standards.

House Democrats reacted angrily to the bill. ``As I see it, we're facing the
danger of a dead end on trade legislation,'' Rep. Sander Levin, D-Mich., a
House leader on trade issues, told the Senate panel.

Levin, Baucus and Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., all objected to Bush's
referral to labor and environmental issues in a speech Monday as ``all kinds
of excuses not to trade.''

Trade promotion authority allows the president to negotiate new trade deals
that Congress can reject or approve but not amend.

Every president has had that authority since Congress began granting it in
1974. But President Clinton's trade authority expired in 1994 and Congress,
partly because of Democratic concerns over the labor and environmental
issues, failed in several attempts to renew it.

Republicans hope to pass the trade authority this year so Bush will have a
free hand in negotiations for a Western Hemisphere free-trade zone and the
opening of a new round of World Trade Organization talks on lowering trade
barriers.

``If we are serious about maintaining American leadership in global trade
policy, there is no good alternative to renewing the president's
trade-promotion authority this year,'' said Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who
was chairman of the Finance Committee before the Democrats gained control of
the Senate two weeks ago.

Protecting labor rights and the environment are important, he said, ``but
they are not, and should not be, the central focus of the trade debate.''

Supporters of the House GOP approach say concerns about labor rights and the
environment can and will be dealt with separately from trade pacts. But
AFL-CIO president John J. Sweeney, testifying at the hearing, said excluding
these issues was ``an insult to the millions of Americans whose lives have
been adversely affected by current globalization policies.''

Baucus noted that the president did not have trade promotion authority when
the Uruguay Round of trade talks was launched in 1986, and the United States
and Jordan reached a free-trade agreement, which includes labor and
environmental provisions, without that trade authority.

``In the end, achieving the right result is far more important than any
artificial deadline,'' he said.
