VICTORY: Russia Announces Lake Baikal to Be Spared Oil Pipeline Threat
In yet another startling victory for Ecological Internet's network and partners, Russian President Putin has announced the new Siberian/Pacific coast oil pipeline will be routed at least 40 km from Lake Baikal [more], and outside of the "Jewel of Siberia's" watershed. Lake Baikal is home to 20 percent of the world's fresh water, and is the world's deepest and oldest lake renowned for its water purity and home to tremendous amounts of endemic species including a rare fresh water seal.
Ecological Internet is proud to have generated tens of thousands of strategically targeted protest emails that have successfully supported the local Russian environmental movement and the likes of Greenpeace and WWF in their protests against routing a major oil pipeline adjacent to a fifth of the world's freshwater.
It is clear that Ecological Internet has fully reached its stride, as this is the fourth major environmental conservation victory that we have achieved in the past month, and the second in two days! Over the past year Ecological Internet has entirely renovated our technology, organizational structure, web site design and improved our protest methodology. Ecological Internet now has in place and offers for free to the world the Earth's preeminent biocentric ecological activism knowledge base and action center.
Shortly we will be launching our mid-year fund-raiser to build upon this fully established and highly successful knowledge and action infrastructure, by adding staff and resources to further improve the quality and quantity of our offerings. By participating in the network and supporting Ecological Internet financially you help bring hope to the Earth and her humanity. More on this later.
