'Politicians only see #gold and #oil in our lands': the Wampis nation of #Peru

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.

'Politicians only see gold and oil in our lands': the Wampis nation of Peru – photo essay

The culture of the Wampis has long been endangered by exploitation of the Amazonian rainforest and rivers. In 2015 the communities set up their own constitution and parliament, in a bid to protect their ancient territory

Pro-Israeli #settlement MPs are ignoring the basic rights of Palestinians

source: https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20170211-pro-israeli-settlement-mps-are-ignoring-the-basic-rights-of-palestinians/
The #water supply to Palestinians was restricted to two hours a day during the summer while Israeli settlers in the West Bank were able to both legally and illegally obtain enough water to irrigate lavish gardens and fill swimming pools.

Struck by #Uganda's #Water #Problem, One Student Did Something About It

source: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/05/kathy-ku-spouts-uganda-water-filters-chasing-genius/
While teaching in Uganda in 2010, American college student Kathy Ku noticed that both she and her host family were getting sick a lot from drinking the water. She kept thinking about the problem even after she was back in school at Harvard University, designing a ceramic water filter and getting other students involved. In the middle of her junior year, she took a year off to pursue the idea in earnest.

Langmuir Circulation

Two photos showing the characteristic "streaks" of foam that appear when the wind blows over a large body of water at about 25 knots (50 km/h). These are called Langmuir Circulation or Langmuir Streaks and are actually caused by the wind cooling the water surface, resulting in warmer water below and setting up rotating convectional cells that are parallel to the wind direction. This produces the foam streaks in higher winds. These are named for Irving Langmuir who first solved the cause of them in 1938.

The two photos were taken today on Lac Deschenes in #Ottawa, with 30 knot (60 km/h) winds blowing.

#California's Drought Is Over, but the Rest of the #World's #Water #Problems Are Just Beginning

Trade means we're all in this together. Food choices made by consumers in #Qatar can have an outsize impact on aquifers in geopolitical hot spots like #Pakistan (...) Like climate change and antibiotic #resistance, water scarcity is a global problem that requires global solutions.

:-) Very true!

On the small inland freight ship (Kastje) I used to sail on in the beginning of the '90s we had a long banner over the full length saying:
"Here sails a traffic jam of 13 trucks."
Then the European Union "happened" and legislation was put in place that first outlawed our generations old system of equal freight distribution, secondly made new regulations and approval requirements that are all but impossible for independent skipper-owners of small and/or older vessels to comply with, and furthermore heavily subsidised the building of ever larger ships and huge bankloans to purchase those.
So nowadays skippers either work for a fixed wage on ships of large companies or they are very much in debt and therefore have to sign long badly paid contracts with those same companies :-(

#Question ... Cleaning #water using #centrifuge could clean water from what sort of stuff?

I'm not looking to #purify water from oil, or sewage, but purifying from maybe heavy metals, #fluoride, #aluminium, maybe calcium and fecal coliforms?

And how good of a centrifuge would be needed, if possible?

The mouth of Gangotri glacier by Indranil Sinharoy
The Gangotri glacier is the source of the great Indian river Ganga. It is one of the largest glaciers in the Himalayas with an estimated volume of over 27 cubic km. The glacier is about 30 km (19 miles) long and 2 to 4 km (1 to 2 miles) wide. The terminus of the Gangotri Glacier is called "Goumkh" (cow's face) because it resembles a cow's mouth.

in 1989 I nearly died when the mouth of a Swiss glacier broke and a black wall of water mixed with huge stones came down that totally dry bed of the rivlet I was in, just got out in time... the earth was trembing and sounds louder than thunder in the air, sat there at the steep edge of that crook bed... still thankfull for that "adventure" (just told our dear ramil rodaje)...

I captured the footage for this video during the weekend. It was very windy and I wanted this to be a slow-motion film, however I made a mistake and captured it at very low frame-rate - therefore the slow motion wouldn't work. But I didn't want to throw away the footage because I think it's quite watchable. So I hope you will enjoy it nevertheless.
