4) This week's summary
of under-reported news

Compiled by Bob Nixon

* Nineteen years after the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power
plant, the
Ukrainian government is planning to design a new protective shell for
the plant.
* At an international conference on biological weapons on December 2001,
John
Bolton -- the Bush administration's embattled nominee for U.S.
ambassador to
the U.N., then the U.S. undersecretary of state for arms control --
stunned
diplomats by insisting that the inspection process for germ weapons be
cancelled.
Tucked inside the energy bill that easily passed the U.S. House of
* Representatives in late April was a provision that allows oil
companies to escape the mandates of the 1969 National Environmental
Policy Act.
