Today [March 27] the Klamath Riverkeeper is filing a citizens enforcement lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Warren Buffett's PacifiCorp for polluting one of the nation's most important and controversial salmon rivers - the Klamath. Klamath Riverkeeper's suit asserts that the Iron Gate Dam hatchery, which is owned and operated by PacifiCorp and the California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG), is unlawfully discharging pollutants into the Klamath River, in violation of the Clean Water Act (CWA). The complaint is seeking an assessment of civil penalties for violations of the CWA, and injunctive relief to enjoin PacifiCorp and the CDFG from further violating its discharge permit and the CWA.

In the lawsuit, filed March 22, 2005, the City claimed that cyclists riding together in a group are required to apply for a parade permit. The lawsuit against TIME'S UP! and four of its volunteers sought to inhibit their right to free speech and to freely assemble in public space.
Building on the Energy Descent Launch "We are currently consuming more than 4 barrels of oil for every one discovered..." Following on from the successful Energy Descent Launch event on Wed 21st Feb, 'Transition City Bristol' continues to build this new initiative. Sarah Pugh - Transition City Bristol writes: Tackling the issues of Peak Oil and Climate change head on, Transition City Bristol is looking for answers to the question of how we, the people of Bristol, can create a resilient, sustainable city we’d all like to live in now and in the future. Many of us are already striving to reduce our ecological clodhopper by reducing our household energy use, car use and food miles. But within a highly unsustainable system, how much difference can we actually make? TCB will be looking at ways we can make changes on an individual level, but we’ll also be seeking out community responses towards a more sustainable system overall. Taking a good hard look at all aspects of the city’s energy use – transport, food, buildings, water, energy production, waste and more we hope to bring together an Energy Descent Action Plan which will present a roadmap for the city towards local resilience to the changes to come ... We’re not here to tell you not to fly – we hope you’ll participate in making Bristol such a vibrant, thriving, green and pleasant place to be you won’t want to go anywhere else!Dates For The Diary: Tue 3rd April: Meeting for people wanting to be practically involved in TCB.

There appears to be yet another major fossil fuel project on the Columbia River. We are awaiting formal notification of a third massive liquefied natural gas (LNG) import termilna in Oregon. Calpine Corporation stated its intent to develop an LNG terminal in Warrenton (near Astoria) two years ago. It went bankrupt, and sold its LNG asset out of bankruptcy to Leucadia Nataion Corporation. Leucadia now intends to develop the mouth of the Columbia River with a massive fossil fuel import project.
On January 24, 2002 I was surrounded by 25 federal agents from the FBI and Secret Service Los Angeles Joint Terror Task force while I was at home asleep taking a nap. The agents were armed with sub-machine guns, shot guns, bullet-proof vests, a battering ram, and a 25 page search and seizure warrant filled with as much "terror rhetoric" as they could think of. While asleep I was unaware that agents were already positioned around every angle of the house, including right outside my window with loaded weapons ready for a fire fight. I was 18.
