Harvey Partly Due To Climate Change.. Partly caused by Texas Capitalists

warming

For every extra degree Celsius in warming, the atmosphere can hold 7% more water. This tends to make rainfall events even more extreme when they occur. Another element that we can mention with some confidence is the temperature of the seas. “The waters of the Gulf of Mexico are about 1.5 degrees warmer above what they were from 1980-2010,” Sir Brian Hoskins from the Grantham Institute for Climate Change told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

It’s a fact: climate change made Hurricane Harvey more deadly | Michael E Mann

“That is very significant because it means the potential for a stronger storm is there, and the contribution of global warming to the warmer waters in the Gulf, it’s almost inevitable that there was a contribution to that.” Researchers are also quite confident in linking the intensity of the rainfall that is still falling in the Houston area to climate change. “This is the type of event, in terms of the extreme rainfall, that we would expect to see more of in a warming climate,” Dr Friederike Otto from the University of Oxford told BBC News.

Nature’s ironic ‘revenge’: Harvey hits the heart of the Fossil Fuel empire.. but also strikes the Poor and uninsured…

Ecocidal Houston Oil Mafia Reap Whirlwind of  Climate Change’s Hurricane Harvey…..   Exxon Knew for decades and Profited while paying none of the costs
Exxon may lose billions.. Serves Them Right!.. you say. Only that the criminal billionaires scooping the loot from the great fossil fools nightmare will still have their mansions, private islands, yachts and offshore fortunes safely  stashed away.

It’s the ordinary six and a half million of us in Houston, only one on six of whom have flood insurance, who will have their lives ruined.

The great irony is that fracking for gas and tight oil is both the greatest promotion of EXXON TEXAS and probably the greatest new addition to runaway climate chaos, though that can’t be proved since Trump abolished methane measurement.

But does the Texas fossil fuel industry cause Climate Chaos? Of course it does, though you can’t prove a specific case  ”Harvey benefited from unusually toasty waters in the Gulf of Mexico. As the storm roared toward Houston last week, sea-surface waters near Texas rose to between 2.7 and 7.2 degrees Fahrenheit above average. These waters were some of the hottest spots of ocean surface in the world. The tropical storm, feeding off this unusual warmth, was able to progress from a tropical depression to a category-four hurricane in roughly 48 hours”.  see footnote 1

Climate change made every stage of Hurricane Harvey more horrific .

Okay so the sea is much too hot, but there’s evidence Harvey’s weird stalling out on the coast may also be connected to climate change.  Because of man made devastation and galloping desertification inland south Texas produces a semi permanent anticyclone which blocks entering storms. see footnote 2 Continue reading Harvey Partly Due To Climate Change..

Support Jessica and Ruby: DAPL Eco-Sabotage Heroes: Resistance Goes On.

Two activists have come forward and admitted to some of the multiple acts of eco-sabotage against the Dakota Access Pipeline in Spring 2017.
Several of these incidents had been previously hidden from the public. Much of the sabotage took place with minimal equipment and training, and during broad daylight.

The women have come forward in the hope that others will support and be inspired by their actions.Image result for eco sabotage DAPL

They have currently been arrested on a lesser charge, and the FBI is investigating. Deep Green Resistance is reaching out via our Political Prisoner / Prisoner of War Support Group and aims to provide whatever assistance possible.

This is a developing story and more news will be coming soon. Press release follows:

The Dakota Access Pipeline is an issue that affects this entire nation and the people that are subject to its rule. With DAPL we have seen incredible issues regarding the rule of law, indigenous sovereignty, land seizures, state sanctioned brutality, as well as corporate protections and pardons for their wrongdoings. To all those that continue to be subjected to the government’s injustices, we humbly stand with you, and we ask now that you stand with us.

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

El Fracking Gas d’Estats Units Arriba Aviat a l’Estat Espanyol #NoAlFrackGasDelTrump

 UPDATE:::Aún no llega el Gas del Fracking. El barco La Mancha Knutsen se desvió y el próximo peligro es al Cadiz Knutsen

STOP al Fracking Gas que Gas Natural Fenosa porta a l’Estat Espanyol

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.

Gas Natural Fenosa (GNF) tiene contrato para recibir centenares de cargamentos del Gas LNG, casi todo del Fracking que está arrasando EEUU, causando innumerables cánceres, acuíferos envenenados y una nube enorme y permanent de metano visible del espacio que agrava bastante la crisis del clima mundial.

Los contratos de GNF están  firmados para 20 años empezando en Agosto/Sept. del 2017. Pero hemos averiguado que algunos cargamentos llegarán antes como en periodo de pruebas. La destinación  queda en secreto pero será probablemente al puerto de Barcelona que tiene mucho espacio de almacenamiento (o a cualquier de las 7 plantas de regasificación).

GNF ha fletado ya  al menos 4 barcos tipo ‘LNG Knutsen’ para hacer el negocio. Uno de ellos, el nuevo ‘La Mancha Knutsen’, acaba de salir de Algeciras (30 de marzo, 2017) rumbo a Sabine Pass en Louisiana, dónde se recoge el gas en forma de LNG para el contrato de Gas Natural. Esta información viene del sitio Vessel Finder AQUI…ver destination. Llegada a Sabine Pass 20  de Abril.

Activists dressed as animals invade Bell Pottinger to protest fracking

www.reclaimthepower.org.uk     Today 40 activists dressed as animals invaded PR firm Bell Pottinger in central London to expose their ties with fracking. Today’s activities closed the national ‘Break the Chain’ fortnight of action by Reclaim the Power [1].

The activists staged an animal-themed intervention of the Bell Pottinger offices, with zebras throwing leaves, monkeys spreading animal manure and a squid spraying ‘ink’ on the windows. The scene was left in chaos with messages reading “Break the Chain” and “We said No”.Image result for Activists dressed as animals invade Bell Pottinger to protest fracking

The group said they were targeting the company due to their continual support of fracking since they helped clean up Cuadrilla’s reputation following an earthquake caused by them attempting to frack in 2011 in Blackpool [2]. Bell Pottinger currently represent Centrica who are a major fracking investor in the UK[3][4]. Continue reading Activists dressed as animals invade Bell Pottinger to protest fracking
