AAEA is recommending an Environmental Justice Allowance Reserve (EJAR) to address the racial 'Hot Spots' issue. These allowances would come from a special reserve, similar to the current Acid Rain Program Renewable Energy and Conservation Reserve, when the initial allowance allocation is made. They would be awarded to utilities that undertake environmental justice practices and programs designed to promote carbon dioxide offsets. Utilities could choose to work with organizations and businesses that conduct environmental justice activities that reduce related emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and mercury. The EJAR should receive an allocation of 50 million allowances.
The EJAR program will leverage allowances and resources to promote environmental justice practices and projects designed to:
Allowances are fully marketable commodities. Once allocated, allowances may be bought, sold, traded, or banked for use in future years. Contact us at: AfricanAmericanEnvironmentalist@msn.com

2) Promote community education and
3) Enhance health-related activities.

Gore appeared at the MTV Music Awards in New York, the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles and will probably receive an Oscar at the Academy Awards. He has also been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. The man is clearly competing with Jimmy Carter for a post White House 'activity' award. He is also definitely running for president (without announcing). (Wash Post)

Our guess is that Kim Jong Il needs heating oil for his country to make it through the winter. And he will agree to anything right now to get it. He can always renege this summer. North Korea would receive additional "economic, energy and humanitarian assistance up to the equivalent of 1 million tons of heavy fuel oil (286 million gallons or 7 million barrels)." President Bush will have to get Congressional approval for the oil. (Wash Post)

"This is a political document, not a scientific report, and it is a shining example of the corruption of science for political gain. The media has failed to report that the IPCC Summary for Policymakers was not approved by scientists but by UN political delegates and bureaucrats," The IPCC is only releasing the Summary for Policymakers today, not the actual scientific report which is not due out until May 2007."
