Happy Diwali, IS IT?

by mynk on Oct 09, 2008      Category: Human Rights Tags: environment pollution child labor sivakasi

Another inconvenient truth - International Herald Tribune

Interesting analysis of another cause of impending water crisis: 1. "to produce just one gallon of diesel fuel up to 9,000 gallons of water are required. Up to 4,000 gallons are needed to produce enough corn for the same amount of ethanol." 2.
