Manchester, Houston: An Environmental Battleground

no Tar Sands31 Dec

On Thursday, December 27th, in Houston, TX, residents of Manchester gathered with allies to issue new demands on Valero. “We demand to know what you are forcing us to breathe!  ¡Exigimos saber lo que nos están obligando a respirar!”

The community came together in a celebration of unity and strength.  Manchester is populated almost completely by Latin@s, and surrounded on all sides by industry.

A massive Valero refinery looms over the community’s only park and its smokestacks poison the people who live there 24 hours a day 365 days a year.  Manchester is plagued by a long list of diseases and ailments including asthma, respiratory disease and inflammation, infertility, birth defects, and a myriad of deadly cancers.  The National Disease Clusters Alliance reports (pg. 2) that children living within two miles of the Houston Ship Channel have a 56% higher likelihood of developing leukemia than those who live more than ten miles away.

NH3 Cost benefit analysis 1. draft report

Conversion of London Buses to zer0 % of CO2 and toxic gas emissions.

This diagram is the JACKPOT for those really seeking an answer to CO2 and Climate Change. An ‘off the shelf’ NH3 production process is CO2 free and makes a fuel that is also Co2 free and produces no toxic gases when burnt. Available from http ://www.protonchemie.com/NFUEL.html

London Buses manages one of the largest bus networks in the world. Approximately 7,500 iconic red buses carry more than six million passengers each weekday on a network serving all parts of Greater London.

468m km X 1.3kg =  608.4million kg p.a…. that`s about 608,400 tons of  CO2 a year saved converting to CO2 free fuel! Continue reading

Al Gore is stepping up the charge with a new initiative: The Climate Reality Project. It kicks off with 24 hours of presentations, staggered across 24 time zones, on September 14, 2011.

The point, Gore explains in the introductory video above, is to show that the “new normal”—characterized by increasing instances of severe storms, drought, and an overall higher global temperature—is anything but ordinary.

“Yet around the world,” he says, “we are still subjected to polluter-financed misinformation and propaganda designed to mislead people about the dangers we face from the unfolding climate crisis. Those who want to protect their own short-term financial interest are employing the same strategy first used by tobacco companies years ago to mislead the public about the science linking cigarettes to disease and death.”

“It is deeply disconcerting that the oil industry not only has a swarm of lobbyists here in Washington, as well as in all the state legislatures where decisions about drilling are made, they’ve also got

‘truth’ is one more designer product

multimillion dollar advertising campaigns and think tanks”

Meanwhile a horde of ultra right wing bloggers, half of them fascists, religious fanatics or  ‘Bots for the Kochs’, have infested the internet, so you can’t believe anything there either.

For the similar reasons the US is the only country in the world where most people REFUSE TO BELIEVE in Climate Change that has been proven millions of times.

Anything but corporate profit is false by definition. Scientific proof is routinely trashed.

While FRACKING is being banned on health grounds in European countries “The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is issuing a permit every two to 30 minutes, without having any idea what this could mean for the community or the environment,” Lo Basso stressed.

“The DEP’s own website has recorded 11 violations by gas companies each day, yet there is no regulation of the process.” According to FWW, 15 million people rely on the Delaware River Basin for their fresh drinking water. Continue reading
