Geothermal Solves (???) Climate & Energy Needs For 26,000 Years, & More
Activist and author praises 'courageous' invitation by Pope in face of fossil fuel industry's power"In a world where profit is consistently put before both people and the planet, climate economics has everything to do with ethics and morality."
That’s a bigger problem than it sounds as fires in the Arctic affect the permafrost whose total carbon content would be double what’s currently in the atmosphere.
As for the emergency meeting last night between the Bank of Greece, Greek banks and other representatives of the Athens government, that decided banks today will be subject to the same restrictions as last week (no transfers of funds abroad, a €60 limit on withdrawals from cash machines, a third of branches to open so older people can get their pensions).
But those restrictions expire at the end of today. Which means there will be another meeting of the banks and the authorities tonight to decide how and whether the banks can operate tomorrow.

I am getting a lot more national media ever since I’ve been running for president. But even with all of the national media I’ve been getting, what’s always shocking to me is that still half the American people don’t know who I am—which talks about not me in particular, but just about political
consciousness in general. I can tell you what is more of an indication: We have by far now what I think is the most successful Senate Facebook page—I think [more than] 1.2 million people who are part of our Facebook network and, on any given day, there might be a million people or more talking about us. So there is no question but that there’s a significant part of the population that follows what we’re doing—and that has been following us for years.
The remote islands – roughly halfway between Australia and Hawaii – were deemed sufficiently distant from major population centres and shipping lanes, and in 1948, the local population of Micronesian fishermen and subsistence farmers were evacuated to another atoll 200 km away.
In total, 67 nuclear and atmospheric bombs were detonated on Enewetak and Bikini between 1946 and 1958 – an explosive yield equivalent to 1.6 Hiroshima bombs detonated every day over the course of 12 years.
