Re-Planting A Mid Summer Vegetable Garden – for Autumn Eating

These notes are for a temperate or Mediterranean climate in the Nth Hemisphere, and for gardens with ample water. Not for example for southern Spain and North Africa where temperatures have been over 40C  (104F) all week with a new record of 47.4C  (117.3F) in Cordoba.

One effect of climate change is climate chaos, e,g. unwatered gardens are shriveling here in Barcelona after 3 months of solid sunshine, yet with sea temperatures up to 30C we can expect Autumn flooding.summer vegetable gardenGreen beans can be planted in the summer vegetable garden now for a mid to late fall harvest

Other plants not listed below that can still be replanted here: Courgettes (zucchini, calabacín) grow really fast and fruit bountifully. Pumpkins often just survive the summer and grow huge in autumn. And it’s not too early to start cauliflowers, cabbage, broccoli and sprouts (and leeks) for autumn and winter, planting out the seedlings under nets till the plague of butterflies tapers off.


Planting a mid-summer vegetable garden is an excellent way to increase and extend your garden’s harvest!

Perhaps your spring-planted garden got away from you this year. Or, maybe life was simply too busy to get one planted at all. Well, no worries, (depending on where you live and water availability), it’s not too late! Planting a mid-summer vegetable garden is an excellent way to have a 2nd chance at fresh veggies this year!

Al Wilson invites you to take part in a month of anti-fracking action in Lancashire with Reclaim the Power

July 12, 2017  5 min read


See more details, including a daily schedule, on Reclaim the Power’s website.

The battle against extreme energy is intensifying. Fracking firm Cuadrilla began construction of a super-sized hydraulic fracturing well pad at Little Plumpton, Lancashire in January.

They have been been met by daily resistance from local protectors who know the water, land and air will be poisoned if they do not act. People fear their peaceful rural neighbourhood being turned into an industrialised gas field.

Throughout this month, people from across the country are gathering on the Fylde, near Blackpool, to support these frontline communities, in the fight against fracking, as part of The Rolling Resistance. Continue reading UK Anti Frackers are Winning.. Reclaim The Power.. Fracking Rig Sabotaged

Humans and our livestock and Pets are now 97% of land mammals

Today wildlife accounts for only 3 percent of earth’s land mammals

…..”Our destruction is so familiar—so synonymous with civilization—in fact, that we tend to overlook how strange the world that we’ve made has become. For instance, it stands to reason that, until very recently, all vertebrate life on the planet was wildlife.

But astoundingly, today wildlife accounts for only 3 percent of earth’s land animals; human beings, our livestock, and our pets take up the remaining 97 percent of the biomass.

This Frankenstein biosphere is due both to the explosion of industrial agriculture and to a hollowing out of wildlife itself, which has decreased in abundance by as much as 50 percent since 1970. This cull is from both direct hunting and global-scale habitat destruction: almost half of the earth’s land has been converted to farmland.

The oceans have endured a similar transformation in only the past few decades as the industrial might developed during World War II has been trained on the seas. Each year fishing trawlers plow an area of seafloor twice the size of the continental United States, obliterating the benthos.
Gardens of corals and sponges hosting colorful sea life are reduced to furrowed, lifeless plains. What these trawlers have to show for all this destruction is the removal of up to 90 percent of all large ocean predators since 1950, including familiar staples of the dinner plate like cod, halibut, grouper, tuna, swordfish, marlin, and sharks.

List of Monsanto Owned “Food” Producers

Credit: True Activist

There are several reasons that people are opposed to Monsanto, but among the top two are their involvement with GMOs and their corruption of the U.S. government.

One of the more outrageous schemes they pulled off in recent years was to ensure the passing of the “Monsanto Protection Act” that essentially prevented courts from prosecuting Monsanto over GMO-related health issues and was allegedly partly written by the company itself.

Though the Act was only in effect for six months, similar bills have been signed into law that protect companies over consumers. Continue reading List of Monsanto Owned “Food” Producers

$10 million per minute given by States to Fossil Fuel Criminals

Your Taxes Subsidize Dirty Oil Corporations By $5.3 TRILLION

Source   via  trueactivist.com     A recent paper released by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) should shock all of us who believe in a green future based on renewable energy.

Despite stark warnings from scientists, fossil fuel subsidies continue to grow: this year alone, it is estimated that dirty coal and energy corporations will receive a staggering $5.3 trillion from governments worldwide.

The worst predicted impacts of climate change are starting to happen — and much faster than climate scientists expected..The Sixth Mass Extinction Is Upon Us: Can Humans Survive?

To put this into perspective, the sum is more than the healthcare budget of all the countries in the world combined. It works out at $600 million per hour, $10 million per minute, and $200,000 per second. Just imagine what we could do with that kind of money.

We could eradicate poverty, invest in clean energy, boost health and education systems, start a food revolution, and create more jobs in these industries as a result. Instead of the logical option, our governments choose to spend our tax dollars on propping up the same corporations that are poisoning us and the planet (while making ridiculously huge profits at the same time).– Continue reading $10 million per minute given by States to Fossil Fuel Criminals

Flood of Fracking Gas from US will Arrive Soon in Spain #NoAlFrackGasDelTrump

UPDATE The Frack gas won’t arrive in Spain yet.. The tanker la Mancha Knutsen went elsewhere and the next danger is the ship Cadiz Knutsen #NoAlFrackGasDelTrump

STOP the  Frack Gas that Gas Natural Fenosa is bringing to Spain

 

* It is proposed to use the hashtag #NoAlFrackGasDelTrump  to inform and promote resistance to Fracking Gas

Gas Natural Fenosa (GNF) has a contract to receive hundreds of cargoes of the Fracking Gas glut in the US which is causing innumerable cancers, poisoned aquifers and has produced a 2,500 sq ml permanent methane plume over western US visible from space that greatly exacerbates the global climate crisis.

The GNF contracts havbe been signed for 20 years beginning in August / Sept. 2017. But we have found out that some shipments will arrive beforehand  during test period. The destination is in secret but will probably be to Barcelona, which has most storage space,  or Valencia.

Flood of US Fracking Gas due to arrive in Spain

GNF has already chartered 4 ‘LNG Knutsen’ tankers to do the business. One of them, the new ‘La Mancha Knutsen’, has just left Algeciras (30  March) for Sabine Pass in Louisiana, where the gas is to be collected in the form of LNG (Liquified Natural Gas)

This information is according to the  Vessel Finder Site HERE … see destination. Arrival at Sabine Pass April 20th

Faced with these facts, it is more than preobable that they will start with their immoral and criminal Frack.Gas business that seeks private profit in destroying the climate and the world biosphere, and poisons the air we breathe.

If the La Mancha Knutsen is really on its way to pick up the first load of Frack-gas for GNF it will arrive in Spain between the 10th and 20th of May, 2017, which leaves us time to find out which port it will come to.

Gas Natural Fenosa (GNF) té contracte per rebre centenars de carregaments del Gas LNG, gairebé tot del fracking que està arrasant EUA, causant innombrables càncers, aqüífers enverinats i un núvol de metà visible de l’espai que agreuja la crisi del clima mundial.

Els contractes de GNF estan signats per 20 anys començant a l’agost / setembre. del 2017. Però hem esbrinat que alguns carregaments arribaran abans com en període de proves. La destinació queda en secret però serà probablement al port de Barcelona que té molt espai d’emmagatzematge  (o qualsevol de les 7 plantes de regasificació).

El gas per a Gas Natural ( principalment del fracking) arriba a Sabine Pass a través de la Cheniere Trail Pipeline que va a través dels pantans no protegits i fortament contaminades amb materials tòxics des de les plataformes petrolíferes no controlats i la runa de l’huracà Rita.

GNF ha reservat  ja almenys 4 vaixells tipus ‘LNG Knutsen’ per fer el negoci. Un d’ells, el nou ‘la Mancha Knutsen’, acaba de sortir d’Algeciras (30 de març, 2017) rumb a Sabine Pass a Louisiana, on es recull el gas en forma de LNG per al contracte de Gas Natural.
