Thanks for the tips! I was able to find the Nature Iraq info no problem, but you would happen to know how I can contact the Minister of Environment's office? Delete Comment

Hi Stephen,

I'm actually with an environmental company that specializes in waste management. We're looking to take care of some of the problems currently troubling Iraq, which is how I stumbled onto your article "Four years of environmental nightmare in Iraq" dated Saturday, March 24, 2007.

I was hoping you might be able to provide some insight into the process of waste management in Iraq. Who are the important points of contact? I noticed your article heavily referenced the Environmental Minister. What are the limitations of transportation, both in country and into other countries? BASEL standards are a big concern to our company.

If you think you could help us out in this area, I would love to get in contact with you. Perhaps we can setup a conference call between you, me and the VP of my company. Let me know.

Thanks,

Daniel Kinsbursky

Hi, I’ve been a freelance science and environmental journalist for 12+ years. The past few years I've been covering global science and environment for Inter Press Service News Agency (IPS), a wire service headquartered in Rome and its Latin American affiliate, Tierramerica. I've written for New Scientist, The London Sunday Times, Maclean’s Magazine, The Toronto Star, Wired News, Audubon, BBC Wildlife, Canadian Geographic and many more. I also do some science communications work.

Stephen Leahy's Blog

Another blog? I don't think so.

I already have a blog/website that takes more time that I'd like. As a freelancer who gets paid by the word, it's hard to blog for free. I've got lots to say but prefer/need to be paid to say it. What I mainly post on my "Stephen Leahy - International Environmental Journalist" site http://stephenleahy.net are the first few paras of the recent stories I've done in the past 2 years. Every now and then I'll rant about something or post some interesting development.
