Oil Exploration Threatens Panama's Rainforest, The Second Lung Of America - International Business Times.

Oil Exploration Threatens Panama's Rainforest, The Second Lung Of America - International Business Times. | #Adventurewithus | Scoop.it

In 2011, Panama found that Darién held oil reserves of more than 900 million barrels, according to a report by consulting company OTS Latin America LLC. The study also pointed out that Panama could receive up to $20 billion out of the investment. Oil companies from the U.S., Colombia, Brazil, Mexico and Europe showed interest in the possible exploitation agreements.

Panama, which has traditionally depended on imported oil (the debt mounted from $447 million in 2000 to $2.25 billion in 2012, according to official data), saw this discovery as an opportunity to free itself from foreign crude. But as the government started drafting a bill to regulate explorations and exploitations within its frontier, several environmentalists have raised concerns about the impact the work would have in the precious natural reserve.

“The risk to submit Darién to oil explorations is serious. Darién is more than just Panamanian -- it is the second largest lung in America,” Raisa Banfield,  of the NGO Fundación Panamá Sostenible, said in a statement.

Drill and be damned? - Geologist warns of oil exploration risks - MaltaToday

Drill and be damned? - Geologist warns of oil exploration risks - MaltaToday | #Adventurewithus | Scoop.it
Geologist Carlo Cassaniti warns of ‘volcanic and seismic risks’ in Malta’s oil exploration area unless studies are carried out – before Italy and Malta act on plans to drill there for oil.

 

A leading Italian geologist has warned of the catastrophic dangers posed by offshore drilling in the seabed around Malta in the absence of studies assessing the "volcanic and seismic" instability of the seabed in the Sicilian Channel.

Carlo Cassaniti is the vice-president of the Ordine Geologi Sicilia, the officially recognised body representing professional geologists in Sicily. A lecturer at the University of Catania, he also serves as the regional government's expert on mining in the entity responsible for issuing permits for any extracting activity on the ground.

Cassaniti - who has joined an appeal by Greenpeace, Lega Ambiente and the World Wildlife Fund in calling on Italy to stop offshore drilling in the Sicilian Channel - has called on the scientific community to produce a map clearly outlining the danger levels posed by volcanic and seismic activity in different areas of the channel.

In an exclusive interview with MaltaToday, Cassaniti expressed his concern for the scramble for oil royalties between Malta, Italy and Libya.

Talking Space - Home | #Adventurewithus | Scoop.it

Talking Space. A free and open discussion of all things space. A discussion for the novice to the passionate for all things space.

 

Our Newest Episodes:

Episode 526: Relaunching Atlantis-Part 1

On this very special two-part episode celebrating four years of Talking Space, we talk with PGAV Destinations, the company behind the space shuttle Atlantis exhibit at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. In this first part, we discuss how they got the space shuttle and their reactions to finding out what they'd be building. We then go in depth into the behind-the-scenes of the building surrounding the shuttle. This includes discussions on the design of the outside of the building, the large model solid rocket boosters and external tank, the structure of the building, and how you get a shuttle in the building, safely, on an angle, suspended above the ground. Also, we find out how you maintain the shuttle now that it's on display and "keep the good dirt and get rid of the bad dirt", plus much more!

Stay tuned for Part 2 next week where we go inside the actual exhibit and look at the reveal, the exhibit itself, and everyone's favorite parts.
