-▶  CONCERNS MOUNT AS USA PLANS MAJOR NATURAL GAS EXPORTS Washington, DC: Environmentalists and others here are reacting with concern to a surprise announcement on Monday of a major deal that would see U.S. natural gas exported to the United Kingdom, marking the first time that such sales have been permitted...Critics warn that the industry in the U.S. remains too unregulated and that exports will cause a spike in domestic gas prices. In recent months, the debate over exports has become highly divisive. “We cannot guarantee that drilling occurs safely in the United States, because there is neither the science to justify nor do states enforce what regulations do exist,” Alan Septoff, the Washington-based director of communications for Earthworks, an advocacy group, told IPS. “Increasing demand via exports for a dirty, dangerous process is not something we think is a good idea.” http://www.ipsnews.net/2013/03/concerns-mount-as-u-s-plans-major-natural-gas-exports/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

A world facing economically disruptive climate change can no longer justify subsidies to expand the burning of coal and oil.  Governments are shelling out nearly $1.4 billion per day to further destabilize the earth’s climate.

A VERY IMPORTANT WATCH : The consequences of Unbridled Consumerism

A VERY IMPORTANT WATCH : The consequences of Unbridled Consumerism | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

VIA Al Jazeera "Witness"

“If we never look at the consequences of our behavior, we can always maintain the illusion of our competence. ." Dietrich Dörner

 

Green is an unusual film. It is both a hard hitting portrayal of the causes and consequences of deforestation in Indonesia, and a film which captures the tranquillity and calm of wild nature. It contains no narrative or dialogue and yet helps us understand complex commodity chains. The film takes viewers on an emotional journey, following Green's final days and revealing the devastating impact of fulfilling unbridled consumerism thru logging, land-clearing and palm oil plantations.

Stunning images of the natural world and its biodiversity are counter-pointed with scenes of their destruction and the resulting loss of all life in the forest. NOTE: This film contains upsetting scenes including cruelty to animals.
