Monsanto Wins Supreme Court Case: Genetically Modified Alfalfa Ban ...
WASHINGTON (AP)-- The Supreme Court on Monday lifted a nationwide ban on the planting of genetically engineered alfalfa seeds, despite claims they might harm the environment. In a 7-1 vote Monday, the court reversed a federal appeals court ruling that had prohibited Monsanto Co. from selling alfalfa seeds because they are resistant to the popular weed killer Roundup. The U.S. Agriculture Department must now decide whether to allow the genetically-modified seeds to be planted. It had earlier approved the seeds, but courts in California and Oregon said the USDA did not look hard enough at whether the seeds would eventually share ... market research, surveys and trends
Deepwater Horizon: The Best-Case and Most-Likely Scenarios
Even in the best possible case, the consequences of the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico will be severe and ongoing (see the first paragraph of “Deepwater Horizon: The Worst-Case Scenario” ). What would make the difference between the worst and best cases? That difference would flow not just from a single factor, but from a confluence of many through three main tributaries: luck, competence, and courage. If we are to see the best—which is just the least-bad—outcome from the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe, we will need some luck. We will need for there to be no major hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico this ... market research, surveys and trends

Concerned about the Oil Spill? Don't Let the Natural Gas Guys Convince You ...
Natural gas. Even its name sets it up as an alternative to petroleum, despite the fact that the latter is also “natural.” For years now, everyone from oil tycoon-turned-wind magnate T. Boone Pickens to former Sierra Club executive director Carl Pope have been touting natural gas as a clean “bridge fuel” that will tide us over as we shift to renewable energy. That is only true if drilling for that gas doesn’t wreak environmental havoc. Unfortunately, the greatest stores of natural gas in this country are trapped as what’s called “shale gas”  in large underground rock formations. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
