BNP Paribas Latest Bank to Dump Dakota Access Pipeline*

BNP Paribas Latest Bank to Dump Dakota Access Pipeline*

The bank became the third lender to sell its shares in the controversial project as Native Americans continue their divestment push.

BNP Paribas announced Wednesday that it had sold its US$120 million share in the joint US$2.5-billion Dakota Access Pipeline loan, becoming the third bank of the 17 involved to cut ties to the oil project amid a major divestment campaign by Native Americans and activists that was pushed for after the revival of the pipeline by the Trump administration.

The decision to divest the loan was made following an extended and comprehensive review of the project including consultation with all the relevant stakeholders,” the French bank said in a statement announcing the move. “The sale of our stake signals the importance of full and detailed consultation on projects that impact large numbers of stakeholders.”

BNP Paribas joins ING and DNB banks which divested from the project late last month citing issues with how the project affected the Indigenous people in North Dakota and the fact that they were not consulted about the pipeline that would run through their sacred lands and possibly damage their water source.

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe issued a statement later Wednesday welcoming the decision by the major financial institution.

“As corporate greed continues to fuel dirty energy projects on our land, it is heartening to see that some banks recognize the imminent harm to our people posed by DAPL, and are taking actions accordingly,” Dave Archambault II, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, said using an acronym for the Dakota Access pipeline.

“We appreciate BNP Paribas, ING and DNB leadership and their advanced understanding and respect of tribal sovereignty and Indigenous Peoples rights.”

In February, law enforcement swept through an encampment occupied since August on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers property at the edge of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota after President Donald Trump issued an executive order reversing the Obama administration’s halt on the project, and directing the corps to grant an easement allowing the project to proceed.

Since then efforts to convince banks and lenders to divest from the pipeline have been gaining momentum as four U.S. cities, San Francisco, Seattle, Davis and Santa Monica, have divested from Wells Fargo, one of the banks lending money to the Dakota Access pipeline.

Other cities in the United States have also issued warnings to banks behind the pipeline saying they could consider divesting if they fail to put pressure on Energy Transfer Partners, the company behind the project, to address the issues of the Native people.

The action against the US$3.8-billion pipeline last year had attracted more than 300 Native American tribes from across the United States in a show of unity considered historic.

Their cause also gained international support which led Norway’s largest private investor to divest more than US$30 million from three companies linked to the Dakota Access pipeline.

The doctors had seen 1,046 people in their first two days of fieldwork.

In just two days after Cuba sent a medical brigade to Peru, where deadly floods have killed at least 94 and left at least 700,000 more homeless, more than 1,000 people received treatment from the visiting doctors known for their internationalism.

The leader of the brigade — which consists of 11 doctors, 10 health care professionals, an administrator and a lead doctor — told Prensa Latina Wednesday that they are working at five shelters where thousands of refugees were relocated when their homes were destroyed or left uninhabitable.

By Tuesday, the doctors had seen 1,046 people in their first two days of fieldwork. In addition, the brigade’s leader, Rolando Piloto, said that the group is also conducting 549 educational workshops among the refugees and 23 group health hearings.

The group’s epidemiologists have also carried out assessments to see if there could be disease outbreaks because of the physical environment and conditions.

Cuba has extended its solidarity to Peru in the past, most notably in response to earthquakes Peru experienced in 1970 and 2007.

In March, Cuban President Raul Castro sent his Peruvian counterpart, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, a message to express his condolences over the crisis.

Peru has been dealing with severe weather since at least December, which has hit the poor hardest, most notably Peruvians who built their homes on cheap land near the river, which runs from Peru’s central Andes to the Pacific coast.

Thailand Introduces World’s First Solar Powered Hydrogen Houses*

Thailand Introduces World’s First Solar Powered Hydrogen Houses*

A new and creative housing development has just topped the scale of sustainable living as the world’s first for energy storage of its size. The off-grid housing development is located in Chiang Mai, Thailand and is a huge progression in the journey towards greener living. Phi Suea House, developed by CNX Construction and owned by Sebastian-Justus Schmidt, is powered entirely using a solar-hydrogen system. The development is 100% self-sustaining, and provides 24-hour, year-round access to clean energy, even during periods of bad weather, through the solar-powered hydrogen storage system. It is comprised of buildings which include a workshop and guesthouses, although only five of the buildings, a large fishpond waterfall and a 400-square-metre swimming pool with a well pump, require any electricity.

The structures are all fitted with solar panels and have their own inverters. A central energy storage system receives all of the electricity, which is then distributed to the areas that need it at specific times. 86kW of photovoltaics provide an average daily power production of 326.8kWh, which is an amount that surpasses the Phi Suea House’s monthly 6,000kWh energy demand. Any excess solar energy that is produced during the day is then used to power anion exchange membrane electrolyses, that split water into its constituent elements. As oxygen is released into the surrounding air, the hydrogen is stored in tanks, which the fuel cells convert back into electricity during the night.

There are many advantages for using hydrogen energy storage when compared with typical batteries, such as larger storage, no unwanted byproducts, and a long storage life. However, the project is also equipped with two 2,000-Ah lead-acid battery banks as a buffer and back up just in case, although they are not discharged more than 10% in a single cycle. The carefully thought out and innovative energy efficient design of Phi Suea House helps to reduce their energy demands due to features such as aerate concrete walls, double-glazed windows, natural ventilation, green walls, smart ceiling fans, and sun path analysis to reduce the homes’ dependence on air conditioning. It also features a solar hot water system that heats the water without the need for electricity, whilst rainwater is constantly collected and treated onsite for reuse as irrigation.

Their consistent performance technology is also used for future improvements, as energy performance data will be collected and used for research at Nanyang Technical University in Singapore. Sebastian-Justus Schmidt said,

“Everyone should do something to live in a better world. Our family is now doing our part – leaving the world a greener place while gaining and sharing knowledge. This is without a doubt worth all efforts. We aim to have the lowest ecological footprint possible – especially as a foreigner in another country.”

Brenda and David McDowell visit the VaxXed bus while in Detroit Michigan to the story of all three of their triplets vaccine injury stories following the pneumococcal vaccine. Interview by Polly Tommey with camera and editing by Joshua Coleman.

“We are living proof that they are all lying!”

“We were told it was genetic.”

“VACCINE INJURY IS REAL.”

The McDowell’s visited their paediatrician with their two boys and one girl (triplets) for their Pneumococcal vaccine shot. By the end of the day, the children were never the same again. What was supposedly a statistical impossibility soon became reality following a vaccine. Their laughter and reflexes and smiles were simultaneously gone by day’s end.

They were never told about the Vaccine Injury Court and seeing its been beyond 5-years, they don’t qualify for those benefits.

Watch the full interview here.

The Connected Universe

With Nassim Haramein

Through nearly 30 years of research in physics and writing multiple papers, Haramein has come to a deep understanding of the underlying mechanics of our universe, using his equations and theory to calculate the most accurate prediction of the charge radius of the proton to date.

Bringing in evidence from fundamental physical principles and leading research, he is able to show that we live in a connected universe with an inherent feedback network in the structure of space, which has led to pioneering insights in our interpretation of cosmological, quantum, and biological scale systems.

Nassim Haramein is a physicist, public speaker, inventor, educator, and the Director of Research at Resonance Science Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to delivering knowledge and technology to the world which is based on a holistic and complete view of the dynamics and forces of nature, addressing the critical and systemic challenges humanity faces today

The one thing that connects all things is SPACE.
Perhaps the greatest error in the standard model of physics is the fact that they ignore the fact that the vacuum of space is not empty – it’s actually completely full with energy.

When we look at the vacuum at the smallest scales possible we see that it is highly energized with what are called “vacuum fluctuations”, also known as,

  • the aether
  • the plenum
  • the zero point field
  • the quantum foam
  • space
  • the vacuum

Regardless of what you call it, the fact is we have measured the emptiness of space as not empty at all.

Yet in the standard model they simply sweep this number under the rug using a mathematical trick called “renormalization”.

Then proceed about their business writing their field equations as if it was not significant, despite the fact that the measured value of the vacuum energy present in a cubic centimeter of space is 39 orders of magnitude denser than all of the regular matter of the entire universe squashed into a cubic centimetre!
