Rain Forest: Monday, September 4 Update

The regular Monday update on the Iowa rain forest Web site has now (10:30 a.m.) been made (September 4, 2006).

As usual, it contains links to the full text of relevant news stories, and links back to blog entries here related to those stories. This week there is, of course, a disproportionate number of stories related to the Riverside casino's opening. (The casino is relevant to the rain forest because Riverside is one of the two remaining possible locations for the rain forest in Iowa, and the casino has offered to play a role in funding it).


[Every Monday since December 2005 there has been a weekly upload to the pre-existing Iowa rain forest Web site I maintain. In all, printed out it would run over 100 single spaced pages; there are, in addition, links to the full text of hundreds of newspaper stories and reports. It is very probably the most complete resource on the topic anywhere on the Web.

It is found at:

Over the past few months the scope of the Web site has expanded from the rain forest project to include material related to the broader range of attractions and economic development generally in which the proposed rain forest exists and by which it must be evaluated.]
