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: Thu, 2018-11-22 15:39
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]

Extinction Rebellion solidarity rally in Dublin
Date: Fri, 2018-11-23 17:00
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

Ask yourself a question.
A relative, a friend, a neighbour, a co-worker or a stranger on a bus says to you that they were pregnant but exercised their right to choose and secured a termination. Would you then imprison them for 14 years? If you wouldn’t jail someone for exercising their right to choose, would you want to be associated in any way with their jailors?
If the answer to the above is ‘no’, then you might consider joining the 6th Annual March for Choice will take place in Dublin this Saturday, 30th September. We anarchists of the Workers Solidarity Movement will be assembling with thousands of other pro-choice people at the Garden of Remembrance on Parnell Square from 1.30pm, before we march on Dáil Éireann at 2pm.
We anarchists of the Workers Solidarity Movement think that access to abortion should be free, safe and legal. An anarchist society is one in which all people – men, women, trans* – are free to make choices about their own lives. This includes choices about whether or not to become pregnant, remain pregnant or to have children by any means. Continue reading “We will March for Choice. Will you?.. Sat, 30th Sept. Dublin”
A FREAK Climate Change phenomenon is threatening to rain tonnes of peat down on the midlands later today, with Mullingar set to take the brunt of the bog-based storm.
Dubbed a “Turfnado”, the deadly storm formed after a category 5 tornado passed over the Bog of Allen, pulling huge amounts of turf into the air.

Abortion: It’s every Womans Right to Choose By Patricia McCarthy.
Anarchists believe that every woman has the right to choose an abortion when faced with a crisis pregnancy irrespective of the reasons for the abortion.
Women worldwide have always sought to control their fertility through abortion no matter how difficult it is for them to get access to abortion and they probably always will.
This is because it is essential for women to be able to control their own fertility and not to be reduced to the level of their biological function as child-bearers only if they are to achieve true equality and liberation. Continue reading “Abortion.. every Woman’s right to Choose.”
