EU ”renewable,renovable” Gas FRAUD: Humo y espejos: Smoke and Mirrors

7 razones por las que el gas “renovable” es humo y espejos

7 reasons so-called ‘Renewable’ gas is just smoke and mirrors

Pascoe Sabido 22 de noviembre de 2018

A medida que la UE responde al último informe sobre ciencia del clima,  aquí detallamos por qué no deberíamos escuchar a la industria del gas.
Últimamente,la Unión Europea ha estado ampliando su ‘estrategia climática 2050’ . La próxima semana expondrá cómo la UE puede cumplir sus compromisos en virtud del Acuerdo de París y mantener el aumento de la temperatura global por debajo de 1.5oc. Image result for extinction rebellion arrests

El anuncio responde al último informe del  Panel Intergubernamental sobre el Cambio Climático (IPCC) , que muestra que mantenerse por debajo de 1.5c requerirá recortes de emisiones profundos y urgentes. Entonces, ¿puede la industria del gas, cuyo producto principal son los combustibles fósiles, lo mismo que impulsa el cambio climático, ser parte de la solución?

Por supuesto que no! Continue reading “EU ”renewable,renovable” Gas FRAUD: Humo y espejos: Smoke and Mirrors”

NO al terminal de GNL en Irlanda – STOP LNG- Cambio climático y metano

2018-11-22   from Workers Solidarity, video in English.
Entrevistamos a William Hederman, un investigador ambiental que vive en el condado de Clare, sobre la planeada terminal de gas natural licuado en Shannon.

Su construcción significará que Irlanda no cumplirá con sus compromisos de Cambio Climático y, en cambio, estará atada a bombear gases de efecto invernadero adicionales durante décadas.

Como el GNL provendrá de los EE. UU., será gas del Fracking, un proceso prohibido en Irlanda que libera tres veces más metano  que el gas convencional., muy perjudicial para el Cambio Climático,   [video]

William está trabajando como parte de Futureproof Clare  (FB, Twitter) que está haciendo campaña contra Shannon LNG. La planta estaría en el estuario de Shannon en Ballylongford, en North Kerry.

No LNG terminal on the Shannon – Climate Change & Methane

Date:

We interviewed William Hederman, an environmental researcher living in County Clare, about the planned Liquefied Natural Gas terminal on the Shannon. Construction of it will mean Ireland will fail to meet its Climate Change commitments and will instead be tied into pumping out additional Greenhouse Gases for decades.

As the LNG will come from the US it will includes fracked gas, a process banned in Ireland that releases three times as much of the very powerful Climate Change gas methane as conventional gas. [video]

William is working as part of Futureproof Clare (FB, Twitter) who are campaigning against Shannon LNG. The plant would be on the Shannon estuary at Ballylongford, in North Kerry.

Extinction Rebellion solidarity rally in Dublin

Date:

Dublin saw a few 100 people gather last Saturday to take part in a rally in solidarity with Extinction Rebellion, the group which has recently emerged in Britian and which yesterday occupied 5 bridges across the Thames, blocking them for about 4 hours and resulting in large numbers of arrests.  This act of Civil Disobediance is in the context of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report that says we have only a decade to reduce emmissions by about 45% in order to try and keep Climate Change down to a 1.5 degree centagrade increase in global tempertures. [video]

In Ireland we have a particular problem with the plan to construct a Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) terminal in the Shannon that would import Fracking gas from the United States and would result in considerable release of greenhouse gases for the next couple of decades, well past that UN deadline.  Particularly in the short term the methane released is a very much stronger global warming gas than carbon dixode is, see tinyurl.com/climatemethane for more

US forces Expensive Climate-lethal Fracked Gas on UK dependents

UPDATE UPDATE  ANOTHER  US FRACKED GAS CARGO  DUE OCT 31st

Seems like there may be a political agreement in the UK to buy much  more expensive US fracked gas and make the consumer pay.

The giant Shell-chartered 174,000-cbm LNG carrier Pan Europe is expected to arrive at the Dragon LNG facility in the Port of Milford Haven on October 31, according to the port’s shipping data.The tri-fuel diesel electric LNG carrier Pan Europe previously loaded a cargo at Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction and export facility in Louisiana, the data shows.

The UK’s Dragon LNG terminal has received a <a href=”https://www.lngworldnews.com/sabine-pass-cargo-heading-for-dragon-lng/”>LNG </aFracked Gas cargo from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass export facility in Louisiana, USA.

Sabine Pass Cargo heading for Dragon LNG

The gigantic new Sabine Pass plant exports nearly 100% Fracked Gas sourced by a fast growing web of dangerous pipelines to the hundreds of thousands of Fracking wells blighting the USA.

        Destinations of US Fracked Gas as LNGChina was the biggest buyer of US Fracked gas after S Korea, (see chart) , with imports set to triple in the next few years in coal substitution. But in response to the 3rd round of US trade war tariffs on $200bn of goods China has slapped a 10% tax on US Fracked Gas imports, with a provision that it could rise in line with US import taxes.

Check out upcoming arrivals of US Fracked Gas from Sabine Pass and Cove Point at the Vessel Finder Site HERE …

Ironically in May 2018 China had offered to close the US trade gap with a huge increase in LNG imports. Now various reports suggest that Chinese imports of both oil and gas from the US neared zero in Sept 2018. Asia was the best market with higher prices. If the dispute continues Europe may receive even heavier pressure to import US Fracked gas.

As wide public solidarity has delayed and harassed the Fracking industry in the UK the Tory regime has bowed to US ‘Brexit blackmail’ and forced companies to accept more expensive US Fracked Gas. – “US forces EU into buying LNG – YouTube  “

An activist walks into a bank… Climate Actions Across Europe

Together with groups and partners, including #GasdownFrackdown, we called for action targeting banks for their role in financing fossil fuels. Here are some of the highlights:

  • In France, over 40 actions targeted Société Générale. People demanded that the bank “stops boiling the planet”. Société Générale finances the Rio Grande LNG pipeline, which would bring fracked gas from the US to Europe.
  • Geneva in Switzerland hosted a 7,000 people strong climate march. It’s most likely the biggest climate march ever in Switzerland. We were there and you can read our impressions here.
  • Protesters delivered the IPCC report to the Swiss National Bank and Credit Suisse. The report acts as a reminder that we need bold climate action to keep global warming below 1.5°C. Both banks fund projects like the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipeline.

55 seconds of collective energy. 7000 participants from all over Switzerland. 2 strong messages: the time has come for ambitious action on climate change. The SNB must divest from fossil fuels. #ClimateAction pic.twitter.com/tKC5at6Q8x

  • Barclays was the target in Oxford, UK, where Oxford residents protested the bank’s involvement in fracking.

Activists reading out their demands in the Barclays Oxford branch.

  • The European Investment Bank got a surprise visit by climate justice activists in Lisbon, Portugal. They carried a symbolic pipeline through the city, in protest of a 160 km long gas pipeline, financially supported by the European Commission. In Belgium, action was held at the European Parliament in Brussels.

Activists carrying pipeline pieces that read “Gas is as natural as mass extinction”.

  • An Italian customer of Intesa Sanpaolo had enough and closed his account. He protests over the bank’s investment into the Dakota Access and Trans Adriatic pipelines.

Banner drops, rallies, & conferences, from Germany to Bali to South Africa! & only the beginning of #GasdownFrackdown!
In solidarity with the struggle against gas, an ally in Italy closes his account w. @intesasanpaolo bank!

Water Protectors Resistance Actions Shut Down Pipelines

In the last few days, Water Protectors across the so-called US have taken action against a variety of pipeline projects. This includes both Embridge’s Line 3 pipeline, which saw action and construction stoppages on the Fond Du Lac Ojibwe Reservation, in so-called Manitoba, and outside of a Wells Fargo in Minneapolis, a bank which is helping to finance Line 3.

Actions in the ‘Hell Bender Autonomous Zone’ in the Appalachian territory also continue against the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley Pipelines, and the L’eau Est La Vie camp continues to throw down against the Bayou Bridge Pipeline in so-called Louisiana.


Here’s a roundup of actions that have kicked off the last several days.

UK State Terror: ‘Fracksurfers’ jailed for opposing climate meltdown

The British Government has overruled local councils to promote fracking and its right wing courts have begun to give prison sentences to anti fracking protestors despite firm evidence that it is climate and environmental dynamite.
