The American Ornithological Society has banned the naming of birds after people and, in true Year Zero style, has set about renaming the 263 species already so tainted by their association with white men.

Nobody thought of asking politicians to alter the weather or blaming humans for the wind and rain, says retired B747 Captain James Leary. Turbulence in a monsoon was just expected.

Shell to Sea campaigner jailed for 3 months.

Ms Ní Ghraidm pleaded guilty to a Section 8 and 9 charge and refused to do community service as she felt her protest was a service to a community under siege from Shell. The Judge then sentenced Ms Ní Ghraidm to 3 months in jail.

Izzy has been a strong supporter of Shell to Sea for years and her commitment to the cause is much appreciated by us here in Mayo.
She has courageously stood up for our struggle to protect our community and is passionate in her fight to reclaim Irish natural resources.

Speaking from the Court, Shell to Sea spokesperson Terence Conway stated "Yesterday in Belmullet District court, we saw a committed environmental campaigner being jailed for a minor public order incident. On the other hand a Shell security guard who was caught dealing drugs is allowed to walk free. Ms Ní Ghraidm has taken a brave stand to support this community's struggle against a greedy multinational that will do whatever it is allowed to by the subservient State institutions".

Mr Conway continued "What we're experiencing is the selective application of the law. Yesterday Providence Resources dropped their Dublin Bay oil drilling licence because the State has not got it's required EU environmental laws in place. The same EU environmental laws apply to Corrib but are being ignored."

I felt sick reading this. I will write a letter of support today. The corrupt billionaire Quinn family got the same sentence, for series crimes, and they spent every second in the training centre.
