Celebrating Samhain-- Celtic New Year: Ani speaks with local author Lichen June on transformations.

Samhain (aka Halloween) is a time of endings, of death, and of deep transformation-- as every ending carries inside it a new beginning.  Many of us fear this sort of profound changes, and painfully clutch to our past, because it is all we know.  Some who seek transformation still try to retain rigid control, fearing chaos and loss of agency.

HIGHWAY TO HELL: CANADIAN TAR SANDS EXTRACTION & THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST

Mon, 10/25/2010

Now that most of the easy oil on our planet is gone, oil companies are turning to exotic places to extract oil: deep under the ocean as well as from shale and sand formations. In the far north of Alberta, Canada, millions of acres of pristine boreal forest are being stripped-mined for a substance called bitumen, that holds oil in solid form. Since 2001 this operation has accelerated at a rate that industry and government can't even keep up with, and it has turned a once pristine wilderness into hell on earth.
