I love stories like these . . "we don't care if the project will reduce fossil fuel emissions, don't touch our mountain". They fight themselves.


Environmentalists in Italy fight a 'green' project

By Elisabeth Rosenthal International Herald Tribune
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2005

VENAUS, Italy
Volunteers at this makeshift guard post serve as an early warning system charged with detecting the arrival of railroad construction crews for a pan-European high-speed freight line, a project that environmental groups and residents say will create unfathomable environmental damage here.

Venaus lies at a crucial link in a long-planned freight transport system that is intended to connect Western and Eastern Europe. A line stretching from Barcelona to Kiev is to be the latest axis in a European high-speed rail network, known in Italian as the Treno ad Alta Velocità, or TAV.

I've already been hand-slapped by another mod on another thread, so no need to retaliate and break any rules by lashing out at non-mod members Moonie:mrgreen: Reading the threads in which I seemingly violated the rules, one will notice I posted them close together and before my first notice/warning/threat.


So I can post 1/2, 2/3 or even 7/8 of an article and post the source but not the whole article and provide the source. Because I've seen plenty of the former and I did post the original sources on both of my threads which got your and RightNYU's pant . . . I mean, err . . broke the rules.:mrgreen:

C'mon, we can get along . . we're all supposedly on the same side politically (tongue in cheek)? Alright, I'm done . . . good night gents.
