‘No one in Europe’ wants second Iraq: Austrian president slams ‘provocative’ US Iran policy


The US’ reckless maximum pressure campaign against Tehran and nations dealing with it is deeply provocative and hurts international relations, Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen said, warning against a major “crisis.”

Whatever you do, make your next vote for the climate!
We have to end this madness!

So what else can you do?

Here are a few things :

Reduce your own carbon footprint by wasting less, eating less red meat and switching to renewable energy where possible.
Talk to your friends, colleges and family about climate change.

Move thought to be reaction to French reluctance to offer more explicit support for GNA

Libya’s internationally recognised government has suspended the operations of 40 foreign companies including French oil multinational Total, a Libyan government official has said.

The move is thought to have been prompted by the besieged Libyan government’s anger at the reluctance by the French president, Emmanuel Macron, to offer the Libyan prime minister, Fayez al-Sarraj, more explicit support when they met this week in Paris. #Libya #Oil #Commodities #MiddleEastandNorthAfrica #Worldnews #Business #Africa #EmmanuelMacron #France #Europe

But look, there's a free map!

"It is strange how the urgent installation of liberal democracy by force correlates so often with oil reserves not aligned to the USA, as in Libya, Iraq or Venezuela, while countries with massive oil reserves which permit US military domination and align with the West and Israel can be as undemocratic as they wish, eg Saudi Arabia. Venezuela is an imperfect democracy but it is far, far more of a democracy than Saudi Arabia and with a much better human rights record. The hypocrisy of Western media and politicians is breathtaking."

Widows of Nigerian activists accuse oil firm of instigating crackdown against protesters

A Dutch court may decide on Wednesday if Shell was complicit in the Nigerian government’s execution of the Ogoni Nine, environmental activists who were trying to fight the petroleum company’s exploitation of their oil-rich homeland.

The widows of four of the activists accuse Shell of instigating a brutal crackdown against peaceful protesters that led to the deaths of the Ogoni Nine in 1995. #Netherlands #Nigeria #RoyalDutchShell #Africa #Business #Europe #Oil #Oilandgascompanies #Worldnews

Kazakhian ruling party unanimously nominates Kassym-Jomart Tokayev for president

Tokayev's candidacy received unanimous backing from 600 delegates of the ruling Nur Otan party, which is loyal to 78-year-old Nazarbayev, at a conference in the capital Nur-Sultan, newly named for the former leader.

A seamless transition will reassure foreign investors who have pumped money into the country's energy sector but frustrate those calling for democratic reforms in the authoritarian state.

He has visited Moscow for talks with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, a close ally of Nazarbayev, as well as Uzbekistan, a key regional player.

The whole water cycle is already managed globally. We are in the midst of water wars.
Main method of this war is geophysical warfare!

14 years later, oil is still being spilled into Gulf of México

Way back in 2004, powerful Hurricane Ivan toppled an oil rig into the Gulf. It was owned by Taylor Energy, a New Orleans-based company, which managed to plug some of the 25 broken pipes. But the leak didn't stop.

The government is studying this, but it's hard. They can't even figure out exactly how much is leaking. Neither can the company. Henderson's been trying to monitor it himself, doing regular flyovers and reporting what he sees.

The Department of the Interior and the Coast Guard have been working with the company to try to stop the leak for years, but it's a major engineering challenge. The wells were buried under hundreds of feet of mud in an underwater mudslide, which are common in this area where the murky Mississippi dumps into the Gulf. Ed Richards is a law professor at Louisiana State University.

And Taylor Energy's not the only company that built there. There are many rigs in the area. The company has spent about $500 million to t

Another fatberg in England had to be removed


(I knew this story sounded oh-too familiar to me: They once had to remove a fatberg from the city's sewage system next to London, because people seem to use a certain kind of wet towels that binds all the grease and what-not that flows through the sewers, thus forming a big giant mountain of fat, that eventually plugging all the liquid that was supposed to come through. One can only imagine what it had to be like for the workers who had to remove it. Now, here they went again.)
"Workers have braved exceptionally challenging conditions to break up the beast," SWW said.
The beast from the East? 😉
SWW asked people not to "pour fats, oil or grease down the drain, or flush wet-wipes down the loo".
English exceptionalism, I guess: To think that it would be anyhow logical to flush down grease or oil down the toilet instead of dumping it in the apparent means like a decent, civilised human being.

Brent Crude prices rise at year's height amid concerns about demand


(To be honest, this is not suc ha tremendous news, since the year has only passed its first quarter, so what? I guess that we first have to overlook the overall procession before we move on)
Brent crude rose 10 cents to $69.11 a barrel by 0826 GMT, having touched $69.50, the highest since mid-November. U.S. crude was up 11 cents at $61.70 after rising above $62 for the first time since early November.

Six analysts polled by Reuters estimated, on average, that crude stocks fell by 1.2 million barrels in the week to March 29. The first of this week’s supply reports, from the American Petroleum Institute, is due at 2030 GMT.
“China’s PMI number was the most significant monthly increase since 2012, which should ease concerns around a potential threat to oil demand,” said Stephen Innes, head of trading and market strategy at SPI Asset Management.

On the Siona people, whose existence is threatened by UK-based oil company


Again, this third article is part of a trilogy; this time, on the Siona people, whose lives, as aforementioned in the headline, is threatened by private companies who are searching for oil, and who'll, as soon as oil could be explored beneath the top ground, will not hesitate to remove their community to soak it up. Tell me again how responsible the Free Market acts when it comes to individual rights and environmental protection, I will sit here and listen.
But Buenavista is effectively in the way. Amerisur’s concession, Putumayo-12, extends for more than 54,000 hectares (133,000 acres). It entirely overlaps Buenavista’s roughly 4,500-hectare reserve as well as approximately half a 52,000-hectare area into which the Siona are trying to expand the reserve under a government land restitution programme.
Going by the information presented in the consultation, it appears four of the seismic lines would cross the north of the reserve, while another five would go

Kazakhstan's authoritarian leader Nazarbayev renames capital city after himself


There are few moves an autocrat can execute to appear even more ridiculous to the civilised regions which have electoral systems that make it possible to elect a new leader, although this system doesn't imply an actual political change or improvements in society or economy. But how the hell does one imagine that it would maintain one's legacy far beyond one's resignation either by decision or death? This is so stupid, one might send him a doctor to check if everything is still fine with him...

In the end, Kazakhstan is just another weak country which should have never become a country on its own. It has got nothing to share with the global market, nothing but oil, which will run out in the near or far future, and which is despised already, despite the odds. It should've stayed a part of Russia, so that there'll be more support for its people. Argh...
