James Cameron's Avatar in the Amazons

The Amazon river according to wikipedia is the largest river (Nile River is the Longest) in the world with a total river flow greater than the next ten largest rivers combined. The Amazon, which has the largest drainage basin in the world, accounts for approximately one-fifth of the world's total river flowthen a dam project comes over.

Director James Cameron said Monday that a real-life "Avatar" battle is playing out in Brazil's Amazon rain forest (the largest rain forest and most species rich tract of land), where indigenous groups are trying to halt the construction of a huge hydroelectric project.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Cameron said he was in Brazil's capital to support Indian and environmental groups as they stage protests against the Belo Monte dam project.
"I'm drawn into a situation where a real-life 'Avatar' confrontation is in progress," Cameron said in a telephone interview while en route to protests taking place in front of the Mines and Energy Ministry.
"What's happening in 'Avatar' is happening in Brazil and places like India and China, where traditional villages are displaced by big infrastructure projects," he added.
The $11 billion Belo Monte hydroelectric dam — which if completed would be the world's third-largest such project — was cleared for construction Feb. 1 by the Environment Ministry. Bidding for prospective builders is expected to take place later this month.
Brazil's government has said that even if it can't find private partners for the dam's construction on the Xingu River, which feeds the Amazon River, the nation has the funds to finish the project itself.
The administration of President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva argues that the dam will provide clean energy and is needed to meet current and future energy needs.
Environmentalists are sharply opposed. They say it will devastate wildlife and the livelihoods of 40,000 people who live in the area to be flooded. They also argue that the energy generated by the dam will largely go to big mining operations in the Amazon, not benefit the average person. - from yahoo
Yup, not to benefit the average person but only their pockets, hope these guys will think this through, what will happen to our earth?

We are bringing upon ourselves our very own extinction. We our inflicting a punishment to this Earth that it does not
.even deserve. We have long been cared for our home yet we repay it with its own destruction.

Sea Dries Up

Once the world's fourth-largest lake, the Aral sea has shrunk by 90 percent since the rivers that feed it were largely diverted in a Soviet project to boost cotton production in the arid region.

The drying up of the Aral Sea is one of the planet's most shocking environmental disasters.

Progress is killing us. Soon our extinction shall be brought upon by our own actions.

Holy week vacation

Had a long weekend,. and I spent my saturday with a friend swimming in a resort in Calamba, Laguna: 88 KOREA For an entrance fee of PhP500 bucks, I have to say it was well worth it. I had my own locker where I can place my things. Plus I got to bring in some chips.

The only thing that I didn't like about the resort was that the Ladies room did not allow much privacy. Like the shower room which was not divided into the usual cubicles. I guess Koreans are just like that. You'll often see Korean women in their birthday suit just to blowdry their hair.

I don't know whether this is a plus, but there were weird um:

TIES: horseback riding fishing boat riding

How to ge
t there: Ride a GREEN STAR BUS from the Buendia-Gil Puyat Terminal (the one near the LRT STATION). Tell the Conductor to drop you off at 88 Korea. Fare costs about Php 80+++ Rating: ***/ 5 stars

What's your take on:

Adam Carolla starts off his vulgar tirade by bashing Manny for not giving blood before a fight. He then proceeds to say that Manny is off “praying to chicken bones” and that you don’t have to respect him because he’s a “fu**ing idiot”. “Someone has to tell him that it doesn’t make a difference.”[/i]“Here’s how you know when your country doesn’t have a lot going for it: When everything is about Manny Pacquiao.”

“Get a fu**in life as a country”

“All you fu**in got is just an illiterate guy who happens to smash other guys in the head better than other people”

“Really, you want some guy with brain damage running your country? Why don’t you get your sh*t together?”

“All they have over there is Manny Pacquiao and sex stores.”

“What happens when Floyd Mayweather beats him? Does your country go into depression?”
