China Tells Japan To Speed Up Destruction Of Chemical Weapons - SpaceDaily  Left:  Liu said that abandoning chemical weapons in China, which still pose a threat, "constituted a serious crime committed by the Japanese army during its aggression against China."  China urged Japan Tuesday to speed up the destruction of chemical weapons left behind by its invading army at the end of World War II. On Monday Japanese government officials confirmed that a poison gas accident in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou which injured three people last week was caused by such weapons. On Monday Japanese government officials confirmed that a poison gas accident in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou which injured three people last week was caused by such weapons.    
Green Engines To Double US Auto Share - SpaceDaily  Vehicles powered by hybrid or clean diesel engines will double their US market share by 2012 as drivers shun gas-guzzlers because of high oil prices, new research predicted Tuesday. Such environmentally friendly engines are on course for 11 percent of auto sales by 2012 from 4.8 percent this year, according to the research study by JD Power-LMC Automotive Forecasting Services. The bulk of the growth in hybrid models is seen in sports-utility vehicles SUVs and midsize cars, according to the study. Diesels will make inroads in pickup trucks, luxury cars and SUVs.    

Europe Boosted By Galileo And Fusion Project - SpaceDaily  The EU will bankroll 40 percent of the estimated $12-billion price-tag to build the reactor over 30 years. In addition to paying its EU share, France will pick up another 10 percent of the costs for hosting the plant in Cadarache, near the Mediterranean port city of Marseille.  The other five countries involved in the project - Russia, Japan, South Korea, China and the United States - will pay for the rest. Jobs are also one concrete fallout of another European dream. Dubbed Galileo, the EU project aims to build a local equivalent and rival to America's GPS.   Greenpeace noted that while the world must reduce greenhouse gasses by 2050, the nuclear reactor is unlikely to make a dent on the gasses before the second half of the century. That is, if it even succeeds in meeting high European and international expectations.
