Someone recently posted that artic sea ice melting was nothing new and gave as evidence a story of someone being ablle to travel the Northwest Passage. As always there is a kernal of truth, but the "Northwest Passage has been effectively impassible until 1950, and barely passable until now when its opening is almost assured within a few years with 2006 being the first year that the passage was completely ice free in summer.  [more]

Yesterday I posted about Mr. Bradley Birkenfeld. I strongly recommend having a look at the website, and both the Amy Goodman interview, and the FOX interview. The information that Mr. Birkenfeld brought to the IRS, including client names, helped to recover $1 billion dollars in taxes that Americans were hiding in Switzerland bank accounts managed by UBS. How it was done is explained in the last five minutes of Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now interview which is linked to on the website.  [more]

 Bradley Birkenfeld, the former international banker who blew the whistle on the largest tax fraud in U.S. history is scheduled to go to jail on January 8, 2010.  Mr. Birkenfeld is responsible for the recovery of over $1 Billion in lost U.S. revenue for the U.S. Taxpayers.  Leading public interest groups have strongly condemned this sentence and have urged the Department of Justice (DOJ) to reconsider its action. Mr. Birkenfeld was recently named Tax Analysts inaugural annual "Person of the Year."  [more]
