The Montreal Protocol is an international agreement which was designed to regulate and phase-out the use of chemicals that deplete stratospheric ozone, including CFCs amd Methyl Bromide.

Located in southwestern Alberta on public land, directly north of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, the Castle Wilderness is an area of spectacular beauty, and outstanding ecological importance. Although the entire Castle Wilderness is public land and two major public hearings by provincial agencies have each previously recommended its legal protection, a park has not come about. This is largely due to the sub-surface petroleum leases held by Shell Canada. Shell has the opportunity to be a catalyst for establishment of the entire Castle as a Wildland Provincial Park. Conservation groups from Alberta, other parts of Canada and the US are urging Shell to drop its interest in drilling and prove its environmental concerns by helping protect the Castle Wilderness.

“The looting of Iraqi nuclear facilities in 2003, which occurred after U.S. led forces entered the country, has offered another blow to social and environmental security in the region. The most troubling of cases concerns the Tuwaitha nuclear plant, located 48 kilometres south of Baghdad, where an estimated two hundred blue plastic barrels containing uranium oxide were stolen. After dumping the radioactive contents and rinsing out the barrels in the rivers, poverty-stricken residents used the containers for storing basic amenities like water, cooking oil and tomatoes. Extra barrels were sold to other villages or used to transport milk to distanced regions, thus making the critical problem increasingly widespread.”
