When Will Environmentalists Ever Wake Up? The Great Pipeline Scam - It's Not Over

When Will Environmentalists Ever Wake Up? The Great Pipeline Scam - It's Not Over | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

In another ridiculous moment of political trickery, Obama managed to dupe a major chunk of the American environmental movement yesterday by refusing to authorize the construction of the Keystone Pipeline now. The keyword in that sentence which seems like it is being largely ignored by the enviros is now, because what Obama did do is leave open the possibility of authorizing the construction of a pipeline any time in the future, say just after the election?

And not that it matters much, as pipeline or not Tar Sands are already being refined all across the United States in increasing amounts. This great victory being celebrated by 350.org, Bill Mckibben and the no carbon crusaders out there is a complete farce to manipulate voters as we head into the latest corporate sponsored election.

Will Corporate Monopolies Dominate the Green Economy? - Earth, Inc

Will Corporate Monopolies Dominate the Green Economy? - Earth, Inc | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

Rio+20 may launch the "biggest Earth grab in 500 years," argues new report.

 

"While seductive, the new green techno-fixes are dangerous because they will spur even greater convergence and concentration of corporate power and unleash privately owned technologies into communities that have not been consulted about -- or prepared for -- their impacts," warns ETC Group. "If the 'Green Economy' is imposed without full intergovernmental debate and extensive involvement from peoples' organizations and civil society, [Rio+20] risks becoming the biggest Earth Grab in more than 500 years."[5]

Why the FDA Won't Act Against Agricultural Antibiotic Use

On December 22, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) quietly posted a notice in the Federal Register that it was effectively reneging on its plan to reduce the use of antibiotics in agricultural animal feed - a plan it has been touting since 1977.

Now, with virtually no public announcement, the FDA has decided it will continue to allow livestock producers to use the drugs in feed, unabated; a move that is threatening food safety by contributing to the spread of new, antibiotic-resistant "super-germs."

Global warming: Welcome to the age of mankind (and a polluted planet)

Global warming: Welcome to the age of mankind (and a polluted planet) | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it
Many scientists now believe that over the last 200 years, mankind’s impact on the Earth has become so powerful that we have ushered in a whole new geological age, which they call the Anthropocene, or Age of Man.

Scientists say the principal agents of this change are the machinery of the industrial age and its chemical toxins.

New Report: The Big Downturn? Nanogeopolitics

New Report: The Big Downturn? Nanogeopolitics | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

The Big Downturn? Nanogeopolitics, ETC Group’s new 68-page report on global governance of nanoscale technologies, is an update of our 2005 Nanogeopolitics survey. In the intervening five years, policymakers – some kicking and screaming – have begun to acknowledge that fast-tracking nanotech has come at a price and that some sort of regulation is needed to deal with at least some of the risks nanoscale technologies pose. But governments and industry, hand in hand, have come too far and invested too much to give up on nanotech’s promise of becoming the strategic platform for global control of manufacturing, food, agriculture and health – a pillar of the 21st century’s “green economy.” This report revisits nano’s geopolitical landscape, providing a current snapshot of global investment, markets, governance and control, including intellectual property.
