Outdoor air pollution causes more than seven million deaths each year, according to a 2014 World Health Organisation study – the equivalent of more than 2 Chernobyl disasters annually, with over 10 times that number of us suffering chronic health problems from poisoned air.
It calculated that, each year, at least a million people died as a result of ozone and over 5 million deaths can be linked to fine particulate matter. Air pollution increased respiratory and heart disease risks, with the young, elderly and infirm most vulnerable.
The findings of an earlier study appear in the Environmental Research Letters journal.
Since the Industrial Revolution unscrupulous capitalists have knowingly exposed the public to deadly air pollution to increase their profits, knowing that it’s practically impossible to prove they cause the slow agonizing deaths.
But not any more!
Soon victims and their families will be able to take Court cases against polluting industries and the oil and vehicle industries. Continue reading “Fossil Fools to be sued for 7 million Poison Air pollution Deaths a year?”
When Mister Craig Steinke, CEO and chief shareholder of R2 Energy, came to Castellón to convince the local Mayors and press of the benefits of Fracking and oil extraction he told them a pack of lies. 41 mayors of local towns affected by the Fracking Application gathered in the ‘Municipal Palace, with press, TV, and a picket from the Anti Fracking Platform outside. Here we refute those lies one by one, and illustrate the criminal scandal of Fracking. (see Reference 1 Craig Steinke. below)
This was Craig’s big chance to get a drilling permit, to boost his shares and make another fortune. He already got appox. $20 million from merging his previous company, Realm Energy into San Leon, of which he’s also CEO, after getting 10 Frack Permits in Northern Spain and multiplying share prices, (he owned over 30% of Realm himself). (See Ref.2.)
And Craigy is a wonderful liar. All he had to do was convince these gullible natives, which should be easy enough. Continue reading “#Fracking Spain Report: Millionaire exposes himself in Public”

If the 1-in-6 African-American kids with asthma could just hold their breath until 2013, they should be fine.
In his latest attack on the environment, President Barack Obama today announced that he is directing the EPA to withdraw standardsthat would have cut smog pollution from automobiles, power plants, and refineries. Obama might want to consider that wheezing kids, no jobs, and caving to Big Oil do not a reelection make.
The standards Obama blocked could have saved up to 120,000 lives by 2020, and slashed tens of thousands of children’s asthma attacks and other respiratory problems. The environmental justice organization Green for All summed it up when it tweeted (referring to Obama’s delaying action on ozone until at least 2013, when he may be out of office):
More broadly, by blocking the smog standards, Obama is jettisoning one of the few remaining major job creation programs he can create without Congress. Notwithstanding oil industry propaganda, the EPA’s analysis shows that the smog rules would have created a whopping $17 billion in economic benefits — everything from health care savings from avoided asthma attacks to job creation in American-made pollution controls.
