“The most predictable aspect of Trump is unpredictability. I think it’s dangerous, very dangerous,” says Noam Chomsky.

Noam Chomsky Drops Truth Bomb on Trump’s Election

“If Clinton had won… the left could have been organized to keeping her feet to the fire.”

“They’re making a bad mistake,” Chomsky said in an interview with Al Jazeera’s Mehdi Hasan.


..great video, great man..Noam will be 88 on Dec 7th and can’t be with us much longer.. his voice a little shaky but his mind is still spot on, outliving even the ‘eternal’ Fidel.. salud!.. compañero de toda la vida!


While Chomsky initially backed Bernie Sanders in the primaries, he encouraged his supporters to back Clinton once she received the nomination.  Continue reading UpFront special: Noam Chomsky blasts Trump with a Truth Bomb

EQUIPMENT TORCHED, BARRICADES BURNED IN ND AS #NODAPL SOLIDARITY PROTESTS SPREAD

 

Solidarity actions are springing up around the country in response to the massive police raid on the “frontlines” camp in Standing Rock against the Dakota Access Pipeline. The eviction saw hundreds of militarized police attack the encampment with armored vehicles, tasers, pepper spray, concussion grenades, LRADS, and good old fashioned bone crushing batons.

Buffalo arrive at Standing Rock during showdown with authorities.

In response warriors set up burning barricades, threw rocks, torched several large pieces of pipeline machinery and 2 security vehicles, and briefly invaded an active construction site. The Sheriff is also claiming that molotovs were thrown at police and that there were two incidents involving gunfire. At least one burning barricade was maintained through the night. While the frontlines camp has been evicted, the main encampments are still going strong and asking for supporters to join them.

STOP el Gas de Fracking que Gas Natural Fenosa Lleva a España

‘Ni aquí Ni en ninguna parte’ es el lema del movimiento anti-fracking, y genera rechazo el engaño de la importación de gas del fracking de EEUU, especialmente ante las noticias que resulta mucho más dañino que el carbón.manifestacion_contra_fracking_Burgos

Los últimos estudios de Harvard  dan pruebas que ‘La Revolución del Fracking  es letal para el clima debido a las fugas incontrolables de metano y que ha hecho a perder todas las supuestas reducciones de emisiones en EEUU desde 2009.

2016: Se ha quedado probado que el Gas de Fracking es ‘ peor que el Carbón’.

El gas de fracking no es un sustituto menos dañino para el clima. Estudios autoritativos de Harvard  y Cornell y el estudio del grupo de by Dr Robin Russell-Jones  de the ecologist  han revelado que es  peor que el carbón debido a las fugas incontrolables de metano.La bomba de metano. las fugas de metano son forzadores poderosas climáticos y podrían, en teoría, nos empujan sobre un punto de la retroalimentación de inflexión por lo que el permafrost se derretiría liberando cantidades gigantescas de más metano, causando fugitivo recalentamiento global y el derretimiento de los hidratos de en el suelo marino, causando otro gran salto en las temperaturas, un colapso de la biosfera y la "civilización" humana, causando .... etcLa Bomba de Metano. las fugas masivas de metano puedan en empujarnos sobre un punto de la retro-alimentación de no retorno.

El 22 de Julio llegó al puerto de Ferrol el primer cargamento de gas de fracking procedente de EEUU.  Las próximas entregas serán a Barcelona y Sagunto (Valencia).

Gas Natural Fenosa ha  contratado para recibir centenares de cargamentos del Gas del Fracking que está arrasando EEUU, causando innumerables cánceres, acuíferos envenenados y una nube de metano visible del espacio que empeora muchísima la crisis del clima mundial.

Además los envíos marítimos contribuyen hasta el 15% de los gases de cambio climático, más contaminación directa de los océanos.

 Gas Natural (GNA) ha firmado sus contratos por gas ‘normal’  pero el gas de Fracking puede ser el doble de dañino, así que queda la posibilidad de anular los contratos de suministro de gas del fracking ya hechos con empresas de EEUU por ser firmados bajo informaciones falsas.. ver detalles en el artículo aqui: https://thefreeonline.wordpress.com/2016/07/22/frack-gas-arrives-in-spain-worse-than-coal/ Continue reading STOP el Gas de Fracking que Gas Natural Fenosa Lleva a España

Sabotage! $2 million in Diggers Torched at Dakota Pipeline

http://worldtruth.tv/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/dapl-fire.jpgSomeone caused $2 Million in Fire Damage to Dakota Access Pipeline Construction Equipment . Contractors may pull out as Insurance and bad PR costs soar.

( from Anti Media, with thanks, photos added  ) Jasper County, IA — For the second time in recent months, someone or some group has set fire to construction equipment at the Dakota Access Pipeline site in Reasnor, Iowa. The incident, which caused damage of an  estimated $2 million in equipment, is being treated as arson. It’s unclear who set the fire, and there are currently no suspects identified.standing-rock-demo

Despite the lack of evidence or suspects, Reasnor Assistant Fire Chief Don Steenhoek laid the blame on Dakota Access Pipeline protesters. “[I]t’s pretty senseless,” Steenhoek told local news outlet KCCI. “They’re not getting back at the pipeline. They’re just hurting the guys trying to make a living and put it in.” Continue reading Sabotage! $2 million in Diggers Torched at Dakota Pipeline

UK fracking gets go-ahead as Lancashire Council overruled

Sajid Javid has overturned Lancashire council’s rejection of a fracking site, paving the way for shale company Cuadrilla to drill in the county next year and provoking outrage from local groups, environmentalists and politicians.

The council cited visual impact and noise when it turned down the company’s two planning applications to frack on the Fylde last year, but a month later Cuadrilla submitted an appeal.

On Thursday, the communities secretary, Javid, said he had accepted the appeal for one of the sites, at Preston New Road. The move marks a major step up in the scale of exploratory fracking in the UK, as it green lights four wells compared to the single well approved for fracking in North Yorkshire earlier this year.

Standing Rock.. Blockade goes on.. Oil+ Gas = Climate Chaos

Supporters of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe rally in opposition of the Dakota Access oil pipeline in front of the White House, Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2016, in Washington.

Protests continue near the Standing Rock camp at the Dakota Access Pipeline construction site in North Dakota despite the Justice Department’s order to stop construction on Army Corps of Engineer land. Twenty-one water protectors were arrested on Wednesday alone as militarized police with armored vehicles and shotguns descended upon peaceful protesters. The protesters were arrested for trespassing and resisting arrest, among other charges, Rob Keller of the Morton County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to Anti-Media.

But local Native Americans are not alone in this fight. Tribes from all over the country have joined together in one of the largest shows of indigenous solidarity in history — and they are joined by climate activists, farmers, and landowners who have had theirland confiscated through the force of eminent domain in order make room for the pipeline.

Hypocrites sign Climate Deal while promoting Deadly Fossil Fuels

What Lies Beneath

 It’s a simple choice: stop all fossil fuel prospecting, or break the Paris agreement on climate change.    from George Monbiot, with thanks, illustrations added

Do they understand what they have signed? Plainly they do not. Governments like ours in the UK, now ratifying the Paris agreement on climate change, haven’t the faintest idea what it means. Either that, or they have no intention of honouring it.

For the first time, we can see the numbers on which the agreement depends, and their logic is inescapable. Governments can either meet their international commitments or allow the prospecting and development of new fossil fuel reserves. They cannot do both.26exxon-master768

The Paris agreement, struck by 200 nations in December, pledged to hold “the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels”, and aspired to limit it to 1.5°. So what does this mean? Thanks to a report by Oil Change International, we can now answer this question with a degree of precision.
