  5. EDITORIAL Thailand's unsafe food * Published: 21/01/2011 at 12:00 AM * Newspaper section: News The decision of the Thai government to temporarily ban the export of 16 herbs and vegetables to the European Union shows that our regulations governing toxic pesticides are far below international standards. The self-imposed ban is a move to pre-empt the impending ban from the EU after its repeated checks found Thai produce tainted by toxic farm chemicals banned in the EU, United States and many other developed countries. Who is to blame? The farmers who mindlessly use farm chemicals beyond s

  7. Economic development does not have to come at the expense of social equity and environmental protection. "Stated"GOALS OF THE POWER SECTOR FOR THAILAND Very few of stated Power Sector goals are implemented. The Thai power sector strives to provide fair access to and judicious use of its energy resources. In this spirit, the Ministry of Energy outlined the following goals for the power sector in November 2006 (Energy 2006): • To improve reliability and security of energy supply • To provide services at reasonable cost • To promote energy efficiency and conservation • To balance devel

  13. The problem is companies like Monsanto design GMO crops to make money, that require endusers to buy Monsanto seeds & RoundUp weed killer. They're not working for the best interest of humans, especially in developing countries or for a more sustainable eco-system.
  14. http://climateprogress.org/2010/10/07/the-little-ice-age/ There is actually a 2009 study that provides clearcut support for the above analysis, “Temperature response in the Altai region lags solar forcing†(subs. req’d). It makes use of “ice core oxygen isotope record from the continental Siberian Altai, serving as a high-resolution temperature proxy for the last 750 years.†It found that: The strong correlation between reconstructed temperature and solar activity suggests solar forcing as a main driver for temperature variations during the period 1250–1850 in this region.
