What is dioxin?
Dioxin is the common name used to refer to the chemical 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin or TCDD. In addition to dioxin itself there are other compounds, such as the polychlorinated dibenzodioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and some polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), that have similar structures and activity as dioxin. These are often commonly referred to as dioxin-like compounds or ”dioxins”.

- Antibacterial Products Harmful8 y
More than 700 antibacterial products such as soaps, towels, sponges, cutting boards, cleansers, toothbrushes, dishwashing detergents, hand lotions, and other household goods that claim to kill bacteria and fungi are now a $1 billion-a-year industry. These products may be harming human health and the environment.
Triclosan, a popular microbe-icide, can combine with chlorine in tap water to form chloroform, which can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Some studies show that triclosan, exposed to sunlight after washing into streams and rivers through treated hum ... read more

WONDROUSLY BLANK: A PLEA FOR THE ARCTIC NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE
by T. A. Barron
The world would be far poorer, Aldo Leopold famously observed, "without a blank
spot on the map." Yet it wasn’t long ago that U.S. Senator Frank Murkowski from
Alaska stood in the Senate chamber and declared indignantly that the Arctic
National Wildlife Refuge was no more remarkable than a blank piece of paper.
What, really, is a blank spot on the map? What is its value? These questions
are difficult to answer -- especially for a money-driven, mechanized society

Dear All: Help save America’s Everglades by urging Congress to authorize key parts of a massive, ongoing Everglades restoration effort. Each of the 68 project components of the Everglades restoration must be authorized by Congress through the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA). To help the imperiled Everglades this year, the WRDA must be put on the Senate’s agenda so that two key projects can be approved. (The House has already passed its version of the bill.)

Naturalists describe amphibians as sensitive indicators of the health of the wider environment. They describe amphibians as ”the canaries in the coal mine”, as their highly permeable skins are very sensitive to environmental changes, including in water and air quality.
Russell Mittermeier, president of Conservation International, said: ”Amphibians are one of Nature’s best indicators of overall environmental health.

Feds approve nuclear-waste dump on Utah tribe’s land
On Friday, the Bush administration approved a controversial $3.1 billion plan for a massive temporary radioactive-waste dump on a Utah Indian reservation -- a win for nuclear-power interests. A private firm and the sovereign Skull Valley Band of Goshute Indians struck up the agreement for the repository, so the plan has evaded the kind of public review and political debate that’s kept the proposed nuclear-waste dump at Nevada’s Yucca Mountain in stasis. The Utah facility could come online by 2007, and might ultimately hold about 4 ... read more
