GLIN==> Hi! Environmental News- Great Lakes Directory



Hi GLIN Announce

I’ve spent another week doing searches in literally hundreds of newspapers around the world. As a result, I’m bringing you some of the hottest environmental news stories related to the Great Lakes and the world’s freshwater crisis. I’ve posted all of these articles in an easy to read format with quick downloading, so you can browse articles quickly. Please take a couple of seconds to browse through this week’s headlines, action alerts, jobs and events below. I hope all is well,

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
""Isn't it great that while much of the developing world is grappling with extreme water deprivation, the U.S. is making contingency plans to keep desert mirages like Las Vegas up and running?"

Maude Barlow, Chair of the Council of Canadians, speaking in regards to Bush’s new plan to use the existing oil pipeline structure in the Northern Provinces to flow Canadian water into the U.S.
-------------------------------------------

FACT OF THE WEEK:
The Earth Summit started this week, with a focus on the global water crisis. 20,000 children die each day, due to the worsening water crisis. Over a billion people on the planet no longer have access to freshwater. The Great Lakes hold 1/5 of the world’s freshwater. Despite this valuable resource, President Bush has chosen not to attend this once per decade meeting and is on vacation at his ranch in Texas.
