ARABIAN GULF TURNING HOT, OILY, SALTY

By Sudeshna Sarkar

DOHA, Qatar, September 29, 1999 (ENS) - Shoals of fish are dying in the
northern part of the Arabian Gulf as the salt level soars and the water
temperature rises to a blistering 38 degrees Celsius (100.4 degrees
Fahrenheit). A leading Arab environmental organisation warns that this is
the result of the global warming compounded by indiscriminate dumping of
waste water in the region by oil companies and unchecked oil seepage into
this body of water, also known as the Persian Gulf.

ENERGY & WATER FUNDING BILL CLEARS CONGRESS

WASHINGTON, DC, September 29, 1999 (ENS) - The U.S. Senate has approved the
final version of the Fiscal Year 2000 energy and water appropriations bill,
clearing the measure for review by President Bill Clinton. The $21.3
billion budget bill is expected to avoid a presidential veto, despite White
House threats to axe spending bills that include Republican sponsored
anti-environmental riders.

AAA SMOG DECLINE CLAIM CHALLENGED BY FACTS

WASHINGTON, DC, September 29, 1999 (ENS) - Federal regulators should
refocus efforts to cut air pollution away from automobiles, the motoristsí
advocacy group AAA said today. Smog from motor vehicles has declined much
faster than pollution from other sources, and AAA says its time to give
drivers and automakers a break - and concentrate on power plants and
factories instead.

By Diane Jukofsky

EL DORADO, Panama, September 29, 1999 (ENS) - It will all be over by noon
on December 31, 1999. All Panama Canal lands and buildings once managed by

fulfillment of a 1977 treaty signed by U.S. President Jimmy Carter and
Panamanian leader Omar Torrijos.
