NV; Fatality from Ruby Pipeline Construction (tags)
El Paso corporation's rush to complete the Ruby Pipeline in northern Nevada resulted in a worker's fatality as safety procedures were skipped and work continued despite the frigid temps and icy surfaces. The time required to complete this project is being shortened by the corporate profit motive, and the human nature to make serious mistakes is increased as workers grow weary from long hours and colder temperatures.
Western Shoshone Visit UN for Human Rights Review (tags)
Members of the Western Shoshone Defense Project traveled to Geneva, Switzerland to discuss the human rights record of the U.S. government pertaining to indigenous peoples. Despite the Treaty of Ruby Valley (1863) signed with the Shoshone Nation and the U.S., many harmful activities have been permitted to occur on Shoshone land "Newe Sogobia" including cyanide leach pit gold mining, military weapons testing, nuclear waste disposal and now the Ruby natural gas pipeline cutting through pristine sage grouse habitat and numerous indigenous archeological sites sacred to the Shoshone and Paiute.

In order to appear more environmentally friendly, proponents of the 680 mile long Ruby Pipeline Project have reached a conservation agreement with two prominant environmental groups (WWP & ONDA) in exchange for the environmental groups dropping any opposition to the proposed pipeline route through pristine sagebrush wilderness, mating ground for endangered sage grouses.

Grow Jojoba and Decommision Klamath Dams in 2006 (tags)
If Klamath Valley farming collectives would grow jojoba, tepary bean and other CA drought tolerant natives, then there would be no need for maintaining the expensive dams on the Klamath River. The Klamth dams' FERC license expires in 2006, decommision dams and restore Klamath for salmon!!

"After reading stacks of documents from the investigations and talking to energy experts, I found more smoking guns in California's energy crisis than in a Clint Eastwood movie, and none of them have Ken Lay's prints on them." -- Kathryn Jones, 2001
Heralding the arrival of End Times for Bush (tags)
"who can miss the delicious irony that one of the most corrupt and lying administrations of modern times is now taking the unprecedented step of trying to get their religious backers to bring politics to their pulpits."

"This was not a smoking gun, this was an audio tape of the bullet coming out of the chamber, hitting the victim and the killer standing over the body and laughing about it." -- Russ Campbell, Nevada Power Company attorney
"Anything they'd ask you, you'd have to lie" (tags)
On May 17, 2001, Enron Chairman Ken Lay held a secret meeting in Beverly Hills for VIPs (including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Michael Milken) to lobby the Calif Legislature to protect deregulation. That same day the Bush/Cheney administration unveiled their national energy policy which adopted seven of Ken Lay's "suggestions."
You too can become a Pioneer (tags)
Hundreds of wealthy Republicans gathered at the President Bush, Dick Cheney, and a host of celebrities gathered at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge here in the first weekend in April, not for a fundraiser but for a celebration of fundraisers. It was billed as an "appreciation weekend," and there was much to appreciate.
Here's the story Arnold doesn't want you to hear. (tags)
Now, thirty-four pages of internal Enron memoranda have just come through this reporter's fax machine tell all about the tryst between Maria's husband and the corporate con men. It turns out that Schwarzenegger knowingly joined the hush-hush encounter as part of a campaign to sabotage a Davis-Bustamante plan to make Enron and other power pirates then ravaging California pay back the $9 billion in illicit profits they carried off.
Arnold's Enron Secret (tags)
Here's the story Arnold doesn't want you to hear. The biggest single threat to Ken Lay and the electricity lords is a private lawsuit filed last year under California's unique Civil Code provision 17200, the "Unfair Business Practices Act." This litigation, heading to trial now in Los Angeles, would make the power companies return the $9 billion they filched from California electricity and gas customers.

Blame Bush for California's Budget Woes (tags)
Californians provide much more to the federal government in taxes than they get back in services. The feds should bail out the states, which cannot indulge in the red-ink financing that has become a specialty of the Bush Administration.

Ballots across the West promise Power to the people (tags)
Public ownership of electric power is an idea whose time has come – at least in San Francisco, Las Vegas and in the Big Sky state of Montana. Voters in these western locales have a chance to vote Nov. 5 for ballot questions that open the way for city or state takeover or buyout of private utility companies.

Proof the CA Energy Crisis was Corporate Manipulation/Theft (tags)
Probably no one reading the LA-IMC newswire will be surprised by this -- but here's (some of) the proof that last year's California Energy Crisis was thoroughly manipulated by the unregulated, parasitic energy corporations. A similar story was on the front page of today's (5-7-02) LA Times and the New York Times also had a lead article on the matter. Sorry for re-posting corporate media here, but I think it's important for this to be accessible on the LA-IMC newswire for posterity's sake. BTW, Pacifica Radio's Democracy NOW! had an excellent segment this morning about this as well.
