The reality of the UK's coal industry exposed

18-01-2016 11:09

UK's role in the global coal trade
A new report from the Coal Action Network exposes the untold human and environmental stories of the coal supply chain. Ditch Coal calls on the government to phase out coal faster than its suggested end of 2025. The extreme situations surrounding mines in Russia, Colombia, the USA and the UK which supply the UK's power stations show that coal energy is an extreme energy. 24% of electricity generated in 2015 came from coal.

American Suicide Story

28-12-2015 09:19

We are constantly staying scared of something. We are scared of being late for our work, of forgetting of a vital appointment, of being subject to robbery or just of running over by a car. The life of a modern human being is filled with fears, dangers and anxieties.

People are so much used to stay in fear that at times they seem just to miss this feeling as some essential part of their lives. We are actually in constant search of fear and in absence of it we tend to invent it or just address mass media.

Warming Limitation Treaty a Scam, says VCVG

12-12-2015 16:48

In a nutshell, the diplomatic battle between politicians, scientists and activists can be compared to a dynastic inheritance war of the pre-democratic period, in which there used to be four sides: The monopoly clingers, the innovation rivals, the alarmed neighbours and the suffering people. These four sides would then prevail in that order, structuring the feud into four periods: The rebellion, the intervention, the famine and the restoration. In the climate fight, all these ingredients – the fossil lobby, the scientific community, the activist counter- or perma-culture and the war-weary masses – can be found in the set and setting gravitating around the recent diplomatic event in Paris. But a lion´s share of all four also is alive in the Arab Independence Movement – oil administration privileges, cutting-edge counter-intelligence strategy, regional rooting and popular backing. And yet the elephant in the room was not invited to the table in Paris.

Bono Collaterally Slashes Virgin Arrangement

19-10-2015 15:02

The Irish musician famous for his rat-herding of United Nations bureaucrats today turned down what analysts termed a frivolous offer by media giant Virgin Records. The artist management conglomerate had offered Bono a tour organisation treaty including large scale state-sponsored concerts, which would have given visitors a guarantee that stage-diving was to take place in all of the events. United Nations Special Representative for Cultural Affairs Tevik Breibarz said the bureau regretted the decision, as customers would have been offered a money-back clause in case there was no stage-diving in some of the corporation´s presentations.

Voices from the Global South stand in solidarity with UK groups to oppose Engli

28-09-2015 14:12

Representatives of fifty groups from twenty-two countries who are opposing coal mining and working for climate justice have signed an open letter against UK opencast coal mining. The letter, addressed to the Planning Inspectorate and Derbyshire County Council, asks for two opencast coal mine applications to be refused, as “English law enables applications to be refused on the basis that it is not in the local, national or international interest to approve development, as is the situation in these cases.”

Berlin Weighs Controversial Parachuting Ramp

14-09-2015 09:59

It is designed with a middle plank that can be screwed off in case of war,
turning both lanes into one runway. But during peacetime, the military
training platform in the backyard of the CIA´s European headquarters is
groomed to appear as a motorway bridge running across a geologically
precious river valley between two steep mountain ranges. Legally however it is
especially delicate, as it is being claimed by a branch of the American
military-industrial complex which unilaterally came into existence only after
the ink under the respective multilateral treaties had dried.

The World Revolution to Stop Global Warming

13-06-2015 10:22

And when the broken-hearted people living in the world agree, there will be an answer, let it be. - Paul McCartney.
Global warming is destroying the earth and driving the human race to extinction but the official censorship in the mainstream news media is suppressing the truth about the catastrophic apocalyptic consequences of climate change and preventing the people of the world from taking the urgent action that will be necessary to save themselves and help ensure the survival of future generations.
