Dwindling donations force Greenpeace to downsize
Web posted at: 10:04 p.m. EDT (0204 GMT)
SAN FRANCISCO (CNN) -- A quarter of a century ago, the environmental group
Greenpeace captured the world's attention and imagination with high-profile
campaigns, such as the effort by its ship, Rainbow Warrior, to thwart nuclear
But now, as Greenpeace tries to stop oil drilling off the coast of Alaska,
hardly anybody notices.And far fewer people are giving money to the group.
As donations continue to fall, Greenpeace U.S.A. is downsizing. In addition
to its Washington headquarters, only five field offices will remain open.
Staff will be slashed from around 400 to 65, and Greenpeace's international
organization will exert more control over its American subsidiary.
"Perhaps we are losing touch with some of our supporters out there, and that
means to us that we need to refocus," says Greenpeace's Deborah Rephan. "We
need to regroup. We need to get clear and stronger about what our campaign
The group's focus is expected to change, with forest destruction and global
warming as the top priorities. Some environmental experts say that is a smart
"They've got to focus on certain environmental problems. You can't focus on
the whole thing --it's an exhausting experience for sure," says Dan Dahlsten
of the University of California.
While some might believe that there is less to worry about these days because
they perceive the Clinton administration as environmentally friendly,
Greenpeace disagrees, urging people to look at the record.
"We still see polluter-friendly politics coming out of the Clinton
administration," says the
group's Bradley Angel. "As insane as it is, the Clinton administration is
still entertaining the idea of building a nuclear waste dump above an
aquifer, threatening the drinking water for 20 million people, including Los
But just how Greenpeace will narrow its message to global warming and forest
preservation when many of its troops are primarily interested in other issues
could be the organization's biggest challenge.
Roviden:Greenpeace U.S.A. is downsizing, vagyis leepul.
Nem irjak le pontosan, a 400 alkalmazottukbol mennyi is tartozik a
Washington DC-beli fohadiszallasukhoz, ami nagy kar. Ugyanis egy szervezet,

HUNGARIAN NUCLEAR REACTOR CLOSED FOR 10 DAYS? The chief
engineer at the Paks nuclear plant told Reuters on 21 August that the
reactor shut down the previous day could be out of action for up to
10 days. Balazs Kovacs said that if the problem proves to be inside
the block, rather than in the external mechanism of the rod, "we will
have to use underwater cameras to see why the rod cannot be
moved from its position and dismantle the reactor." He added that
the safety of the reactor was not threatened and that the 10 percent
shortfall in nationwide electricity output would easily be made up by
other Hungarian power stations.

COSSACKS BACK ENVIRONMENTALISTS IN ROSTOV. Representatives
of the Vsevelikii unit of Don Cossacks are supporting efforts by
environmentalists to block further construction of a nuclear power
plant in Volgodonsk (Rostov Oblast), "Segodnya" reported on 22 August.
Protesters led by the group Defenders of the Rainbow have been
demonstrating near the plant and have occasionally blocked off the
road leading to the construction site (see "RFE/RL Newsline," 12
August 1997). Police recently turned back a bus carrying Cossacks who
said they planned to defend the protesters, after which the Vsevelikii
Cossacks vowed to seek the support of other Cossack units in Rostov.
The deputy governor of Rostov, who is also ataman of the Vsevelikii
unit, has said that the Rostov legislature will discuss the plant's
construction in September. The environmentalists are demanding that an
oblast-wide referendum be held on whether the plant should be built.
REPORT ON SLOVAK NUCLEAR POWER PLANT CAUSES STIR. An
international study on the nuclear power plant in Mochovce, western
Slovakia, warns of serious safety problems at the station, Austrian
Television reported. The 400-page report was made public in Vienna on
20 August after having been kept secret for two years. It was written
by independent experts from the U.S., Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and
Austria on the orders of the Austrian chancellor's office. They came
to the conclusion that "Mochovce would not even measure up to the
latest Russian regulations." It would therefore be "economically
practical to scrap its construction and instead build a new, better
power station." Austrian environmental groups and the right-wing
opposition immediately called on the Austrian government to pressure
Slovakia into closing down the Mochovce facility.
TECHNICAL FAULT AT HUNGARIAN NUCLEAR PLANT. A technical
fault on 20 August caused the shutdown of one of the four units at the
Paks nuclear plant, some 100 kilometers south of Budapest. A spokesman
for the plant said the fault was a "technical glitch" only. The unit
generates some 20 percent of Hungary's electricity and will probably
be off-line for several days. Although the reactor is Soviet-
designed, it is not of the same type as the ill-fated Chornobyl plant

THE BLACK HELICOPTERS ARE COMING!
The folks who warn us about the black helicopters of the United Nations
swooping down and taking over the world might maybe be a bit right, sort of.
What they are really worried about, I assume, is secret, inaccessible power --
a few people meeting in luxurious rooms in big cities, planning the future of
everyone, and then imposing it, out of the blue, in ways we can't understand or
I never thought the U.N. had that kind of power. I've always seen it as a
useful but hapless organization. Useful because someone should be sticking up
for human rights, peace, development and the environment. Hapless because U.N.
officials bend to the whims of the governments that fund them -- or underfund
them, so that U.N. power will never be sufficient to challenge theirs.
But recently I got a memo from David Korten, author of "When Corporations Rule
the World," who was just back from a meeting in a luxurious room in a big city.
"It was a power lunch of lobster and an exotic mushroom salad held in a private
dining room at the United Nations. The co-hosts were Ambassador Razali Ismail,
President of the U.N. General Assembly, and Mr. Bjorn Stigson, Executive
Director of the World Business Council on Sustainable Development. The purpose
was to discuss business participation in the policy setting process of the U.N.
and in the uses of U.N. development assistance funds. At the meeting were 15
government representatives, several U.N. officials, the Secretary General of
the International Chamber of Commerce, and 10 CEOs of multinational
corporations. Two representatives of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and
two "academics" were invited to observe, one of whom was me.
"Listening to the government and corporate representatives left me deeply
shaken. It revealed the extent to which the messages of the world's NGOs have
fallen on deaf ears.
"On the positive side the Prime Minister of Norway called for a tax shift to
place the burden of taxation on environmentally damaging consumption. The
representatives from the United Kingdom and the Netherlands called for giving
high priority to ending poverty. Ms. Chee Yoke Ling of the Third World
Network, the only NGO voice given the floor, spoke eloquently of the growing
concentration of wealth and the universal consumer society. She observed that
there are not enough resources for everyone to live even at the level of the
average Malaysian, let alone the average American. She noted that people are
becoming cynical about corporate-dominated forums such as World Trade
Organization, where they talk only of corporate rights and nothing of
"The President of Guyana dismissed Chee Yoke Ling's comments out of hand. He
accused NGOs of trying to postpone the development that people so desperately
want. Besides, he said, if he does not cut down his country's forests, someone
might grow marijuana in them.
"The United States sent Larry Summers, Deputy Secretary of the Treasury.
Summers praised privatization, noting that people take better care of their
homes when they own them, implying that environmental resources will be better
cared for when they are owned by corporations. He assured us that economic
growth creates both the will and the means to deal with the environment. He
said that by attracting private capital to build bridges and roads, countries
will not need to use scarce public funds. He might have added that private
roads and bridges will be less congested, because the poor will not be able to
pay the tolls.
"Mr. Kofi Annan, Secretary General of the U.N., referred to the Rio meeting as
an example of the private sector participating in setting environmental
standards. He did not point out that the private sector helped assure that few
standards were set and even fewer met. He called on business to come up with
alternative energy sources for the poor so they 'don't have to cut down every
tree in sight,' while making no mention of the corporations that are stripping
the world's forests.
"Underlying all these words was the logic of economic globalization. The
dominance of corporations is an irreversible reality to which we must adapt.
To deal with poverty and the environment we need market incentives (read public
subsidies), so corporations will invest in job creation and environmentally
friendly technologies. Corporations need to be partners in public decisions.
No speaker other than Chee Yoke Ling saw any problem in giving over more power
to global corporations."
With his note, Korten sent a cartoon. It shows a U.N. session with Nike taking
a seat next to Nicaragua. The delegate from Coca-Cola asks to speak.
To fulfill its enormous mandate -- "to maintain international peace and
security; to develop friendly relations among nations; to achieve international
cooperation in solving economic, social, cultural, and humanitarian problems
and in promoting respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms; to be a
center for harmonizing the actions of nations in attaining these common ends"
-- the U.N. has an annual budget of $2.6 billion. Compare that to the U.S.
military budget ($260 billion) or the annual revenues of General Motors ($168
billion) or Wal-Mart ($93 billion).
A puny $2.6 billion is hardly worth a corporate grab. I would guess that
desperate U.N. officials initiated that power lunch, in hope of trading some of
their legitimacy and power for corporate money. Public school officials are
doing that, so is public broadcasting, so, if some senators have their way,
will the national parks, and so, of course, do the senators.
You don't need black helicopters to rule the world.

Most jottem meg a szabadsagomrol es azonnal ellenallhatatlan ingert
ereztem, hogy irjak valamit.
1. Paksi ugy
Meg alig erkeztem meg, igy csak nagyon vazlatos informaciom van. Az
egyik szabalyozodrud mozgato motor (amibol blokkonkent 37 van) akadt
el valami femdarab miatt. Miutan a szabalyozorud a biztonsag egyik
legfontosabb eleme, a blokkot azonnal leallitotak. A feltetelezesek
szerint a darabka egy javitaskor vagy ellenorzeskor ottfelejtetett
vagy beeset alatet(darab). A pilseni Skoda (a gyarto es karbantarto)
azonnal lecserelte a motort es inditani akartak a reaktort, de a
Nuklearis Biztonsagtechnikai Felugyelet addig nem engedelyezte az
ujrainditast, amig nem vizsgaljak ki, hogy pontosan mi az ami ott volt
es az hogy kerult oda.
2. Kanada es az atomenergia jovoje
"The reason for these closures (tho not cited by Ontario Hydro) is the
pending electricity sector liberalization, which will enable customers
to purchase electricity from who ever they like, rather than the
current nuclear monopoly. Since nuclear electricity is more expensive
than other forms, nuclear utilities are being forced to close reactors
to cut costs or face losing customers."
A liberalizalt piacrol egy rajz egy szakmai lapbol:
A customer (haziasszony) all egy porszivo zsinorjaval a kezeben a fal
elott, ahol nehany konektor, kulonbozo feliratokkal (EdF, ENEL, RWE
vagy akar Ontario Hydro) es masik kezeben egy ujsag tozsdei rovata.
Alairas: "Ma melyikbe is dugjam?"
Meglepo a hir, akarhonnan is szarmazik. Kanada baromi sokat koltott a
nehezvizes reaktorok (HWR, pontosabban PHWR, naluk CANDU)
kifejlesztesere, tehat ezt is beleszamitva valoban nem nagyon olcso.
(Fontos: az USA es a SzU es reszben Franciaorszag is, a dontoen a
katonai koltsegvetesbol fejlesztett nyomottvizes - PWR -
reaktorokat polgariasitotta.) Uzemkoltseget tekintve azonban a
CANDU-nal olcsobb reaktor nincs! A hagyomanyos eromuvek
uzemkoltsegevel - a vizeromuveket kiveve - ossze sem erdemes
hasonlitani. Az ok - ha a hirnek van igazsag-magva - csak a javitas
koltsege lehet. A Pickering A es a Bruce A osszesen 8 blokkja mar
eleg oreg - nemelyik talan mar 25 ev feletti - ahhoz, hogy ha ujra
jelentkeztek a nyomastarto csoveken mar 15 eve is megjelent errozios
korrozio jelei, akkor esetleg az elettartamuk vegehez kozeledo
blokkokon mar nem kifizetodo meg egy csocseret vegrehajtani. Ugyanezt
a okot a ket eromu ugyancsak 4-4 blokkos B kiepitesenel mar nem
tartom valoszinunek. Ennek ellenere izgalommal varom az ujabb
hireket, hatha valami mas oka lehet a dolognak.
Az USA-ban egeszen mas a helyzet. Ott mar nagyon sok reaktort zartak
be, hiszen a fejlesztesek idoszakaban - 60-as, 70-es evek - dogivel
epitettek villamosenergiat is termelo kiserleti reaktorokat a
kW-tol 100-200 MW-ig terjedo tartomanyban. Ezek kozul nemelyik csak
1-2 evig uzemelt (vagy annyit sem), nemelyik - ha kiserleti szerepe
meg is szunt - uzemben maradt (hadd menjen, ha mar ott van). Ezek
nyilvan a mai biztonsagi eloirasoknak mar nem felenek meg, atepitesuk
biztos nem kifizetodo. Ezeket tenyleg csak leallitani lehet.
