Drone Strikes and Extrajudicial killings? There's an app for that!

Now, it may be possible to keep track of the global war on terror in real time using a new app that lets you keep track of the latest U.S. drone strikes, though its developers warn it is not an app for the faint of heart.

The app, called "Dronestagram," is part of a new project that utilizes the popular photo-sharing app Instagram "to shed light on one of the more shadowy aspects of modern warfare," says Time magazine.

The report says the images that come through the Dronestagram app aren't pretty or something you would "share" online with friends. But, says founder James Bridle, that's not really the point anyway.

"It's a way of visualizing what some people want to hide, but by changing the medium, I'm putting it where people are already spending time," he told the magazine. "It radically increases access and visibility."

Among the 336 hours of new footage include scenes from the morning of April 2, 2011, in which TEPCO confirmed leaks of high-level radioactive waters into the sea from Unit 2 after it had experienced a core meltdown. “We have confirmed a worst situation.

Asia Pulp & Paper hires top U.S. lobbyist to help 'green' its image

Indonesian forestry giant Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) has hired a top U.S. official to help it work through trade and environmental issues.

In November, APP announced it had retained Stuart Eizenstat of Covington & Burling, a U.S.-based law firm, to help "ensure APP’s trade and sustainability compliance in North America". Eizentstat's hiring is notable because he led the U.S. delegation that negotiated the Kyoto Protocol and has served in a number of high-level government positions, including U.S. Ambassador to the European Union; Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade; Under Secretary of State for Economic, Business and Agricultural Affairs; and Deputy Secretary of the Treasury in the Clinton Administration. Eizentstat has also advocated for the adoption of forest carbon credits in a national plan to address climate change.
