Italy: against Oil Drilling in the Adriatic Sea

The British oil and gas company Rockhopper sued Italy in May 2017 because Italy had refused to allow for oil drilling in the Adriatic sea. Before the Italian parliament had forbidden all oil and gas activities because of environmental concerns and because of the problem of earthquakes. Rockhopper sues on top of the Energy Charta Treaty (ECT) for indemnification in the amount of 200-300 Million USD. There has been no decision on the issue yet (2019). Although Italy has already left the Energy Charta Treaty (ECT) it can still be obliged to pay. Italy can be sued up to 20 years with hindsight for any investment taken before Italy has exited the ECT (January the 1st of 2016); a 'zombie' clause in the treaty makes this possible.

Plastic pollution is not just a problem for the oceans but als for our soil. Plastic carelessly thrown away with our household compost litters and contaminates our soil in the meanwhile up to a huge extent although this problem is less visible than the littering of our oceans. If you put something into the household compost take care that no stickers or plastic parts like on the stipe of bananas persist on the fruit skin and plant materials. Empty your plastic bag at the bio-waste container (You may put the bag into the residual waste afterwards.) instead of throwing your compost together with the plastic bag into the bio-waste container - a mess still commited by many people. The household compost is used as a fertilizer on fields. Another problem which is not less pervasive in scope is the abraison of car tyres. Car tyres do not only consist of natural caoutchouc but are also made of plastics and smut/carbon black. Unfortunately they do often also contain pollution like heavy metals.

A situação dos indígenas depois da eleição do Bolsonaros já tem piorado? Mesmo muito enorme. … os que roubam a terra ou que batem indígenas e não voltam na frente de matar, sabem que eles não têm nada a temer do atual governo que está por trás deles.

Quais conseqüências tem a destruição da floresta no meio ambiente? No pior dos casos, o ecossistema da floresta tropical se rompe e se torna savana, diz a ciência. De certo ponto, quando o desmatamento é particularmente avançado, a floresta tropical não pode mais fazer muita água na atmosfera como ele faz agora. Mas isso é importante para todo o Brasil. … Caso contrario não podemos ganhar a luta contra a mudança climática.

Não é de modo algum que a Alemanha não seja nada: O governo federal co-financiou vários parques nacionais e áreas protegidas estabelecidas no Brasil, em conjunto com outros países. Bolsonaro quier destruir essas conquistas.

Brasil: “A cada quatro horas uma pessoa ameaça morrer”: O governo brasileiro planeja cortes drásticos no cuidado médico dos povos indígenas. Ativistas de direitos humanos estão em maior preocupação por causa do desastre ameaçador.
