    South Korean environmentalists pour flour, which symbolises Agent Orange, as they perform during a rally in front of the U.S embassy in Seoul May 23, 2011, where they demanded an investigation into claims by U.S veterans who said they were ordered to dump the toxic chemical defoliant Agent Orange at Camp Carroll, in the southeastern part of South Korea, in the late 1970s. South Korea said on Sunday it has agreed with the United States military to jointly investigate claims made by U.S. veterans that they helped bury the herbicide at the U.S. army base in South Korea about three decades ago.

    Activists release thousands of balloons in front of the temporary offline nuclear power plant Unterweser in northern Germany, Saturday, May 21, 2011. More than three-quarters of Germany's nuclear power plants were offline Saturday due to maintenance work or shutdowns ordered by the government after Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster, utility companies said. Environmentalists accused the utilities of staging simultaneous maintenance shutdowns while threatening blackouts to put pressure on Chancellor Angela Merkel's government, which appears determined in the wake of the Fukushima Dai-ichi catastrophe to phase out nuclear power within 10 to 15 years. A decision on that policy is expected in June. Banner reads: 'Switch Off Nuclear Power'. (AP Photo/dapd, Markus Hibbeler)

    Kashmiri workers manually remove weeds from the polluted Dal Lake in Srinagar May 19, 2011. The Lake region's main tourist attraction, which has drawn visitors from Mughal emperors to Beatles star George Harrison, has shrunk from 25 square kilometres to 13 square kilometres since 1980 because of the separatist rebellion, neglect by authorities, silt, weeds and other developments, Kashmiri environmentalists say.

    This April 27, 2011 photo shows a field for sale that was once covered by fruit trees and grape vines in Fresno, Calif. The adjoining field has already been paved over and developed with hundreds of houses. Farmers, environmentalists and others fear more prime farmland could be developed after the lawmakers cut millions of dollars from California's flagship farmland conservation program. The state's staggering rate of urbanization has led to an average of 50,000 acres of farmland being lost each year in the nation's biggest food-producing state. (AP Photo/Gosia Wozniacka)

    A Cambodian fisherman who lives by the Mekong River casts his net outside Phnom Penh April 19, 2011. Plans for the first dam across the lower Mekong River are putting Laos on a collision course with its neighbours and environmentalists who fear livelihoods, fish species and farmland could be destroyed, potentially sparking a food crisis. The four countries that share the lower stretches of the 4,900 km (3,044 mile) Mekong - Laos, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia - met in the Lao capital Vientiane on Tuesday to debate and possibly decide the future of the 1.285-megawatt (MW) dam, the first of 11 planned in the lower Mekong that are expected to generate 8 percent of Southeast Asia's power by 2025.
