  1. 08-02-17 Some news from USA on the overturning of the Obama decision to delay the Dakota Pipeline from crossing native sacred lands.

    Yesterday, a judge reversed the previous court decision and granted the final easement for the Dakota Access pipeline to go underneath the Missouri River. The decision not only violates treaty law, it completely ignores the environmental analysis ordered by the Obama Administration.

    With this action, the courts also waived the standard 15-day legislative comment period, which means the easement can be granted as early as today. The pipeline is considered a dangerous intrusion threatening the people of Standing Rock and the millions of Americans who live downstream.
    There is evidence that president Trump had financial interests in the Dakota pipeline and has expedited the pipeline in spite of the Army Core refusal of the easement and the breaking of the treaty with the native peoples. The pipeline company have carried on working in contravention of the easement ban, the treaty and the Obama decision and has used armed anonymous unmarked paramilitary violent tactics against the unarmed protectors including firing live ammunition, a rocket launcher and the use of blinding lights sound weapons, and water hoses in freezing temperatures.

  2. Ruth, did the BEIS releast the figures of 2015 ghg emissions as due on Tuesday of this week? If they did, do you have a link? If they didn’t do you have any info re why not? Many thanks, Linda H
