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.frackin_7138_11

Probado que el Gas de Fracking es ‘Mucho peor que el Carbón’.

El gas de fracking no es un sustituto menos dañino para el clima. Estudios autoritativos de Harvard y Cornell han revelado que es mucho peor que el carbón  debido a las fugas incontrolables de metano.

Where do Co-ops Drive the Economy and Most People Are Members?

the world is Not a market
In Northern Italy’s Emilia Romagna region co-ops produce 30 percent of the GDP. Here are six things we can learn from it.

Picture a day like this: You wake up and head to your job at a small company you own and manage together with your fellow workers, doing high-tech, advanced manufacturing that’s too specialized for bigger factories.

For lunch, you swing by a restaurant owned by another worker cooperative, this one a national-scale firm that serves millions of customers each year.bologna.jpg Continue reading Where do Co-ops Drive the Economy and Most People Are Members?

Mega-Corpse Of Loch Ness Monster ‘Found’ In Scotland

— Photos, Facts, & Thoughts On The Approaching Extinction Of Many Marine Species

by loch ness corpse

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
There are plenty of real life ‘monsters’, many of them being driven to extinction by human predation

So, what are we left with? A hoax of some sort — though the motives behind hoaxes often vary quite a bit. In this case, I’d say that those behind it have had quite a bit of fun. I wonder what the exact motive was? Continue reading Mega-Corpse Of Loch Ness Monster ‘Found’ In Scotland

The Methane Bomb: New Proof that Frack Gas is Twice as Bad as Coal for Climate

Fracking is twice as bad for climate as coal – will the Climate Change Committee ban it?

by Dr Robin Russell-Jones  from the ecologist  with thanks

 The UK government is all for fracking, writes Dr Robin Russell-Jones, but on climate grounds alone it should be banned. Evidence from the US shows that shale gas is twice as dirty as coal from a climate viewpoint due to ‘fugitive emissions’ of methane. That makes fracking incompatible with the UK’s climate change commitments and the Paris Agreement – as the CCC may soon rule.
We have been unofficially informed that the CCC has accepted our data on fugitive emissions of methane – and that shale gas is twice as bad as coal from a climate change perspective. In other words fracking is likely to be banned.

Fracking has aroused huge controversy in the UK, mainly in England, as there are moratoriums on fracking in Scotland and Wales.

There is very little public support for fracking and virtually no local support with anti-fracking groups springing up wherever fracking companies apply for permission to drill. Continue reading The Methane Bomb: New Proof that Frack Gas is Twice as Bad as Coal for Climate

Millions Around the World Fleeing from Neoliberal Policyinfinite growth

 from the real news with thanks

Economist Michael Hudson says neoliberal policy will pressure U.S. citizens to emigrate, just as it caused millions to leave Russia, the Baltic States, and now Greece in search of a better life

A research team from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health in New York estimates 875,000 deaths in the United States in year 2000 could be attributed to social factors related to poverty and income inequality.cemeteryAccording to U.S. government statistics, 2.45 million Americans died in the same year. When compared to the Columbia research team’s finding, social deprivation could account for some 36% of the total deaths in 2000.

“Almost all of the British economists of the late 18th century said when you have poverty, when you have a transfer of wealth to the rich, you’re going to have shorter lifespans, and you’re also going to have emigration,” says Michael Hudson, Distinguished Research Professor of Economics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.Corporate America

Many countries, such as Russia, the Baltic States, and now Greece, have seen a massive outflow of their populations due to worsening social conditions after the implementation of neoliberal policy. Continue reading TTIP will Kill Millions of Us… Neo-Lib Capitalist Austerity already has!

The first trial against Anonymous in Spain finally moved forward last week.

The three defendants known as RTS, YLDI and JMZF were arrested in simultaneous raids in June 2011 in Barcelona, Valencia and Almeria. The#JuicioAnon trial has been dragging on for five years.

from revolution-news with thanks.     The defense team and supporters of those arrested have stated unwaveringly since the case began that these arrests were an attempt to criminalize the 15M movement and that the alleged “virtual dome of Anonymous” in Spain are being used as scapegoats to destroy the social movement’s public image.

The Spanish National Police tweeted on June 10, 2011 that they had “dismantled the dome of Anonymous in Spain” and that those arrested had attacked the Central Electoral Board on May 18. Continue reading Trial of Anonymous in Spain.. Evidence Questioned or Missing
