Environmental Politics, Geography and the Left

Editorial Comment: I have found that the ultimate network is not the Internet, not the World Wide Web, but the aikido dojo. One aikido friend sent me the following from her field of history and popular culture.

From: ELLEN NOONAN <NOONANE@elmer1.bobst.nyu.edu>

The Radical History Review is currently soliciting articles and essays for a thematic volume on "Environmental Politics, Geography, and the Left." We would welcome articles that examine the history of formal environmental politics, ideologies, and movements. These articles might deal with the following kinds of questions: What, historically, has been the relationship between the environmental movement and left politics? Between the environmental movement and other oppositional movements such as feminism, racial politics, urban reform, and consumer politics? In addition to essays which explore the history, culture, and beliefs of the formal environmental movement internationally and in the U.S., we would also welcome articles which deal with aspects of social geography, space, and the built environment. These essays might include explorations of the diminishing concept of the public sphere, or the historical--and contemporary--relationship between changes in the economy, such as "globalization," and transformations in the organization of space.

We also seek essays which examine the relationship between geography and the formal politics of environmentalism. These essays, ideally, might trouble our sense of what the basic category of "environmental politics" has historically included and excluded: Why, when, and how does a problem get categorized or counted as "environmental"? How do changes in "artificial" environments relate to the formal movements described by the terms "environmental politics" and "environmentalism"--movements aimed at controlling space, the use of resources, the definition of public and private domain, and the social effects of problems such as industrial pollution? How do "resources" get named and classified, and how have things such as forests been converted from natural spaces into commodities and, on occasion, back into "natural resources"?

Radical History Review especially invites submisssions that investigate non-U.S./non-Western contexts, and those essays that reflect on the relationship between contemporary and historical environmental themes.

Please send submissions to Managing Editor, Radical History Review, Tamiment Library, 70 Washington Square South, New York, NY 10012.

Inquiries to Pamela Haag, haagp@mail.aauw.org, or to the RHR office at (212) 998-2632.

Submission Deadline: January 15, 1998

Action Alert on Multilateral Agreement on Investment

Editorial Comment: Ruth Caplan (rcaplan@igc.org) sent this alert to the Alliance for Democracy's listserv (the-alliance-announce@igc.org, to subscribe email majordomo@igc.org and type "subscribe the-alliance-announce" as your message).



Report from Ruth Caplan 7/22/97
Given the level of interest which local Alliances have shown in the issue of the Multilateral Agreement on Investment (MAI) following the very successful Boston/Cambridge/North Bridge forum, I want to share with you up-to-date information from a meeting of the Citizens' Trade Campaign (CTC) held today in Washington DC which I attended. (CTC is the environmental, labor, consumer, farmer coalition that spearheaded the anti-Nafta campaign.)

As the headline indicates, the administration has committed to including the MAI in its fast track legislation.

***If fast track passes, it means that Congress will not be allowed to make any changes in the MAI which is being negotiated in secret by the 29 leading industrial nations through the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development). When the MAI is brought to the floor for a vote, members will only be able to say yes or no, no amendments allowed.

***If fast track passes, it will be much more difficult to stop the MAI from passing. This is why the administration wants it on the fast track.

Because the administration realizes that the more time our side has the more momentum we will build, they have decided to put fast track on a very fast track. CTC has just learned that the administration wants a vote September 19th -- just 10 days after Congress returns from its summer recess.

The White House is setting up a "war room" like they did with Nafta to garner support for fast track. Tomorrow the President is meeting with a select group of Democrats to "launch his campaign to gain renewal of fast track" according to "Congress Daily." We think these uncommitted Congresspeople will be asked not to make any commitments over the August recess in response to citizen pressure. The administration wants to be able to twist their arms when they return. We can expect to see a blitz of advertisements favoring fast track right after Labor Day brought to you by the transnational corporations and the White House will be making every effort to get favorable OpEds and editorials placed in papers across the country.

For any local Alliances which want to get involved in stopping the fast tracking of the MAI, the August recess (August 1-Sept. 1) is your critical opportunity to be in touch with your representative. Find out where their local office(s) is(are) located. Write to them or better yet, ask for a personal meeting. Bring as many Alliance members and friends as you can. A meeting may already be scheduled in your district. To find out, contact Chantell Taylor at Public Citizen 202-546-4996 ext. 303 of e-mail her at <ctaylor@citizen.org>.

Points to make (with thanks to Public Citizen)

* The MAI needs full debate in the light of day. It is being secretly negotiated in Paris by OECD members. It should not be on the fast track.

Strategically, it is a good idea to try and get your representative's commitment to vote against fast track. S/he may need more time on the MAI itself, but they still need to understand why you are opposed to the MAI. Here are a few arguments.

* The MAI would give corporations new tools to expand their power over democracies in the guise of expanding the global economy. Public Citizen notes: "A broad range of existing laws (in the U.S. and abroad) designed to influence and regulate the actions of all investors could be subject to challenge under proposed MAI terms. In the U.S. the MAI could limit:
* some stock market safeguards;
* some community reinvestment laws;
* local tax policies aimed at multinational corporations;
* expropriation of property for environmental safeguards;
* restrictions on foreign ownership of real estate and even strategic industries;
* domestic content requirements; and
* direct controls on the movement of capital.

* The MAI would establish NEW RIGHTS FOR CORPORATIONS and investors to SUE NATIONS for failure to meet the MAI's terms. Public Citizen explains: "Private investors could bring cases against governments through powerful international dispute resolution claiming they have not obtained due benefits promised under the treaty. This dispute resolution system is proposed to be binding on governments with enforcement through monetary fines." They conclude: "The investor to state dispute resolution process proposed in the MAI would provide substance to the concern voiced by many community, labor and other activists that corporations are effectively replacing governments."

* As drafted, the MAI could effectively forbid: "Local, state, and federal programs that set aside a certain portion of government-guaranteed loans or other benefits to promote small or minority business." In fact any policies promoting small businesses could be vulnerable. Just what the transnationals want!

*"The MAI draft includes a broad ban on 'performance requirements' that could prohibit a wide range of measures countries use to promote responsible corporate behavior."

In other words, the MAI would make drastic changes in how our economy operates to favor multinational corporations and big investors and to take power away from national and local governments and the administration is trying to muffle debate. WE CAN'T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH THIS.

For more information about the MAI, check the MAI section of Public Citizen's global Trade Watch web site <http://www.citizen.org/gtw>. You can even get the draft MAI text on their site. For help in organizing a local forum on the MAI and for information about follow-up strategies, contact David Lewit, the MA Alliance coordinator, at <dlewit@igc.org>

If I can be of any further assistance, please let me know by sending e-mail to <rcaplan@igc.org>. I will do as much as I can because I think this is an extremely important issue, but I'm just one person and as co-chair there is a lot on my platter so I might not be able to do everything you would like me to. I certainly will do my best to keep you posted on developments here in DC. In Alliance, Ruth Caplan

Solar Redecorating

Because I have the temerity and gall to write "A List..." every week, people sometimes make the mistake that I know what I'm talking about. From time to time, I get requests for help.

Here's one that came through the Sustainable Business Journal (http://www.envirolink.org/sbn/contributors.html#greenmoney):

"I am redecorating a new room in my parent's house and want to utilize as many earth-friendly tools as possible. I need to find a way to power my cassette/CD player and TV and VCR. Also, I am seeking bedding (a hammock or futon) that will not be harmful to the Earth in it's production or disposal, and bookshelves. Also, I seek lighting fixtures, a chandelier, most probably, that will hold candles, and paint or pigments.

"I am concerned, as well, about the effect of cars on the environment, and either take a bus or walk, but these things are not safe to do at night time. How do you deal with this situation? Do you have any alternative transportation ideas?

"Thanks, and please reply to me at LionLennon@aol.com.
Rebecca Weisser

"EARTH!...it's where you live."

I referred Rebecca Weisser to a piece called "Three Solar Strategies" from "A List..." of January 31, 1997 (http://world.std.com/~gmoke/AList.Jan3197.html/#Three Solar Strategies).

I also mentioned another piece called "What I Want for Christmas," in which I describe a simple home emergency system, suitable for apartments, which can also be used to charge all kinds of batteries. Alas, it is still only a vision (and still what I want for Christmas). However, you can buy portable solar panels for a coupla hundred bucks (Real Goods (http://www.realgoods.com) and Jade Mountain (http://www.jademountain.com) are two places, recreational vehicle mags are also a good place to look) that will take care of measured electrical needs for less than $250. You might be able to get by with a sunny south window and a photovoltaic solar panel if you are careful. No refrigeration and no incandescent lights but fine for cassete/CD, TV/vcr.

The batteries are part of the problem but may be preferable to Hydro Quebec, Ohio coal plants, or Three Mile Island. You have to decide.

As for being unsafe at night, I advised Rebecca to try martial arts, any discipline that appeals to her. In my experience, you can learn the basics in 3 - 6 months, change your posture and relation to your own body and space so that you will be less liable to be a victim. It's good exercise too.

For transporation, I have a bike and live in a city that is fairly compact with an adequate public transportation system. I like mini-buses, especially the publicos I used once on a visit to Puerto Rico, but there isn't an infrastructure for them in the US yet. Many European cities are also experimenting with car sharing systems.

If any "A List..." readers have other ideas that can help Rebecca in her environmental remodeling, I'm sure that she will be happy for any help she can get.

Since I wrote to Rebecca I have found two sources of surplus solar supplies in the alt.energy.renewable newsgroup:

John Clothier (jclothi@ibm.net) of CI Solar Supplies Co responded to a request by javzener@aol.com for a Unisolar UPM880 22watt rigid nonbreakable panel or something similar:

Ci Solar Supplies Co sells the UPM-880 as new equipment. Retail is $212.95. Can sell to you for 20% educational discount. These are also available as low-output factory rejects at half price on surplus market. Can give more info.

See our web site catalog for solar/wind prices:

Different Kinds of Dollars

I was reading the _Village Voice_ for July 18, 1997 and found a small article on Brooklyn Greenbacks, a new local currency system that is just beginning in the Big Apple. 48 small businesses are accepting the Greenbacks, each of which is equal to $12, and the program is expected to expand throughout the borough.

In the July 20, 1997 _Boston Globe_, there was an article on Maine's state-wide initiative to establish Time Dollars. The article was a little disturbing to me as the reporter wrote about long-time volunteers "charging" for their services. It was only after I talked with Barbara Brandt, author of _Whole Life Economics _ (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ISBN=0865712662/alistA/), that I understood my concern was due to the reporter's confusion of Time Dollars with Federal Reserve notes. The concept behind Time Dollars is that of trading hour for hour, one hour of your work on behalf of the community is logged into the Time Dollar system to be traded for someone else's hour of community work sometime down the line. Maine is trying to use the Time Dollar system to fill some of the gaps that "welfare reform" will leave. With a state-wide system, they are hoping that a steady volunteer who logs their community hours into a Time Dollar system will be able to transfer those hours to a relative or friend in another part of the state who needs community services that they otherwise might not receive without the existence of something like Time Dollars. Time is not paid, volunteer service is not commodified, only accounted for so that a system of exchange can circulate services hour by hour, person by person.

Last week, while I was researching something else, I came across "Local Currency News" (http://members.aol.com/efssociety/cnews.local), another fine service from the people at the E F Schumacher Society. They maintain a list of many different local currency projects in the US and around the world. I've known Bob Swann of the Schumacher Society for over 20 years. He was one of the people behind an early experiment in local currency and money indexed to real materials, a concept from Ralph Borsodi called "the Constant," where each local currency note was equivalent to so much food, fuel, and raw material. It was money that was not only locally based (their circulation was something over $100,000 in the mid to late 1970s along the eastern MA and NH border, the equivalent of between a quarter and a half a million dollars in today's dollars when you factor in inflation) but could be transformed from paper into rice, beans, and cordwood rather than silver or gold. Of course, you can no longer turn in a Federal Reserve Note for gold bullion or hard silver.

There are many different kinds of money and we are only beginning to experiment with them.

Editorial Comment: I got this offer last Saturday. It sounds interesting but I haven't decided to accept. Yet. Does anybody know anything about this company and what their track record is? What do you think? Should I accept? I do know that whatever happens, I'm not going to give up The Begging Bowl.

Dear George,
We want to help raise funding for your efforts. While we appreciate your support, we expect nothing and ask for nothing. We simply promote you and send you quarterly checks from our donors. GreenKeepers will introduce its new interactive family tree program (net) to millions of people (US Post direct mail over the next ninety days). It's designed to help today's extended family (also and endangered species) stay in touch and enjoy the security, bonding, convenience and just plain fun of hearing about, seeing pictures of and communicating with family members around the world on a regular basis.

Each registrant will be given a list of of environmental orgs/foundations to choose from. The one selected will receive a portion ($5.00) of that person's registration fee ($29.95) and a portion of the monthly fee in perpetuity. Quarterly, orgs. will receive summaries of "their" sign ups and a check. We think it will generate some serious funding for our alliance friends. We would like to add your organization to the "choose one" list. Please advise.

We would also like to provide a link to your site for our visitors. If yes, please e-mail us a paragraph about you, a contact, a physical address, tel.#, e-mail address and URL> > For more info on us:

We offer what is arguably the lowest priced long distance pkg in the country and 5% of our revenue goes to reforestation projects to save the rainforests.

We're looking forward to hearing from you and to a healthier, more sustainable world.
Have a green day,
Wayne Umbertis, president

The Begging Bowl

Well the fantastic growth shown two weeks ago in the hit-rate from "A List..." to Amazon.comturned out to be a spike rather than a trend. Last week's hits were back down to four hits from three people. Poor and unknown once again.

However, I have another chance at fame and fortune and wider distribution. The Whole Earth Review is coming back. Issues should be back on the stands within the next few weeks. Notice what's happening on page 41.
