Wampis like to say that the #forest is their #supermarket. The rivers are key to daily life as a source of clean #water and fish and there are no problems with #food #security in the region. Amazonian forests are nicknamed “the lungs of the planet” for their capacity for turning carbon dioxide into oxygen, mitigating #climate #change.

Understanding globalisation

Part 6 of the 87th Annual Report, June 2017. Globalisation has had a profoundly positive impact on people's lives over the past half-century.

#Fighting Climate Change Can Be a Lonely #Battle in #Oil Country, Especially for a Kid

source: https://insideclimatenews.org/news/13062017/kids-climate-change-lawsuit-childrens-trust-jayden-foytlin-louisiana
Louisianans are less likely than most other Americans to believe in man-made #climate #change. That’s partly because of a long #campaign by fossil #fuel interests to muddy the science on global warming and fight #pollution regulation. In Rayne, many men work oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, including Jayden’s own father at one time, and there’s a natural sympathy for an #industry that has been painted as a victim of zealous environmentalists. Climate #science is not part of the public #school curriculum.

The other side of the filter bubble ...

So now the #SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) not only qualifies as the largest political organization – by area and population – in the world; it also unites four nuclear powers. The G-7 is irrelevant, as the latest #summit in #Taormina made it clear. The real action now, apart from the G-20, also lays in this alternative G-8.

#SEC Obtains Final #Judgment Against Two #Bitcoin #Mining Companies

source: https://www.sec.gov/litigation/litreleases/2017/lr23852.htm

Le's think one moment about this #fraud:

I have a mining pool and I can make money with it. Why do I need the money from investors? Ok I can take the money to increase my mining pool but I can take the money from my pool for this, too. I only need the money from my investors, if I get more money from them, then from my pool. That smells already after fraud and #greed eats brain.

#BigBrother #Disney

Disney first introduced the #technology in 2013 and recently updated it, but I just encountered the band firsthand on my #vacation. I still can’t stop thinking about it. The very notion of wearing a #tracking bracelet freaks me out. (It’s weird enough that you have to supply your #fingerprint at the front gate of Disney World, as well as other theme parks, these days.) I realize

“Whether or not #Kabila (President Joseph Kabila) stays in power, LRPS looks set to continue to make #money from every passport issued in Congo. According to Article 14 of the contract for the deal, the agreement remains valid even if there are ‘institutional changes’ in the country,” writes Reuters.

Congo’s passport scheme sends millions of dollars offshore

DR Congo has introduced biometric passports costing $185 apiece. Much of that money goes not to the state but to an offshore company. Who owns it?
