Llega a España el primer cargamento de gas de fracking USA
El 22 de Julio llegó al puerto de Ferrol el primer cargamento de gas de fracking procedente de EEUU. Según denuncian Ecologistas en Acción, Amigos de la Tierra y otras organizaciones, la llegada del metanero Sestao Knutsen, impedirá a buen seguro el cumplimiento de los ya exiguos e insuficientes objetivos climáticos europeos. Las próximas entregas serán a Barcelona y Sagunto (Valencia).
‘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.
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.

The Andalusian Workers Union /SAT) has occupied the huge Somonte Estate for the third time
Somonte is a farm of 400 hectares located south of Córdoba in where summer temperatures reach 50C. It houses a handful of labourers, a pen of chickens and several million “wingback” mosquitoes infesting the few areas of shade.
Among the dry fields that extend beyond the horizon, the only landmark is the tower of the ultraq modern Abengoa photovoltaic plant projecting in all directions the sunlight of hundreds of reflective panels concentrated on its tip.

The supposed carcass of the Loch Ness Monster has been found on the shores of the infamous Scottish loch, according to some recent reports. Found in this case refers of course to the recent appearance of a rather interesting new hoax — the photos are quite fetching aren’t they?
While animals that fit the description of the famous Loch Ness Monster most certainly have existed at various points in time, in various parts of the world — and while I’m not of the mind that all “sightings” are hoaxes per se — the chances of finding a physical animal living in Loch Ness that fits the description are pretty much nil.
There are plenty of real life ‘monsters’, many of them being driven to extinction by human predation
Just days after EU States voted 3 times not to extend Monsanto’s ‘Cancer Herbicide’ license the European Commission went ahead anyway and gave them 18 months more (and that’s for starters). And that despite an unprecedented and gigantic citizens mobilization.

And this was the 1st big EU decision since Brexit, which was itself partly a protest against the undemocratic EU commission.
So why the hell did they do this? Because they have suffered a takeover by corporate capitalism, lots of lobbies and big money sloshing around and entering their untraceable offshore accounts?.. Perhaps also by authorizing continued mass poisoning the EU Bureaucrats assert their power, even over the heads of the member states who voted 3 times against it?..
But there must be another reason, behind this decision overruling national governments.. there must be a more powerful bully…
… of course, because Monsanto is a top US moneyspinner, because the EU is under direct economic and political threats from their US masters who have ruled Europe by these methods since the 2nd World War. (Another current example could be the crippling trade war with Russia which the EU implements although hardly anyone in Europe believes in it, forced by the US to do this because it supports their military expansionism).
The Companies would have had 6 months to withdraw sales of Roundup, now they have 18 months.. and with no detail of a plan to wind down…no withdrawal timetables, no push to seek alternatives or reorganise.. no no.. THIS IS A STRAIGHT DECISION TO LET MONSANTO CONTINUE.. after the 18 months suitable excuses will be found to continue indefinitely, with some more falsified reports and studies, if the public haven’t already shut up by then and realised ( as in Greece and Spain) that mass democratic protest is now useless. I mean, what’s the point? if even 3 votes against by the Heads of States are ignored!!
The above arguments can equally be applied to the ongoing US touted TTIP ‘free trade’ corporate takeover of Europe.
The way to stop Roundup, and to stop TTIP may be by boycotts and ‘Direct Action’, when all else fails, with the current French popular uprising well capable of leading the way. see here

This is what the largest civil disobedience in the history of the environmental movement looks like in Europe
These days, we’re witnessing the largest civil disobedience in the history of the environmental movement. People around the world are joining together in an unprecedented wave of escalated mass actions targeting the world’s most dangerous coal, oil and gas projects, under the banner of Break Free from fossil fuels.
The UK kicked off Break Free last week with three hundred people halting operations at the country’s largest opencast coal mine at Ffos-y-fran in South Wales for a day. The peaceful occupation and blockade ended with no arrests.
