MONDAY 23 APRIL: Released on the eve of the World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty in Washington DC, April 23-26, 2012, two new films reveal widespread violations of people's rights and environmental destruction from land grabbing in Africa.  The films, released by La Via Campesina and Friends of the Earth International, are first-hand accounts of how privatisation of land, and corporate-friendly policies promoted by the World Bank lead to violent displacements, hunger and facilitate the global takeover of community land by private interests. In Mali, Libyan multinational corporation MALIBYA has been awarded 100,000 hectares of prime agricultural land to grow export crops and livestock. The 25 Billion dollar project includes building one of the largest irrigation canals in Africa allowing Mali's precious water supply to be used by MALIBYA. The project is intended to develop agricultural industry through foreign direct investment -- a strategy aggressively promoted by the World Bank. In reality it has already violently displaced hundreds of families and demolished entire villages. Farmers are deprived of their livelihood and the capacity of the local people to feed themselves is hampered. In Uganda, the World Bank has provided millions in funding and technical support to a large scale expansion of palm oil at the expense of local food crops and forest. Communities are losing access to land for farming, firewood, forest products and water supplies. Despite promises of employment, local people have lost their means of livelihood and are now struggling to make ends meet. Nearly 10,000 hectares are already planted in islands off Lake Victoria with 30,000 more planned.  The World Bank conference brings together investors, governments, International Financial Institutions and civil society to discuss land governance. Yet previous policies of the World Bank such as turning communal land rights into private land titles, encouraging private finance to invest in land and providing technical and policy support for foreign land investments has set the stage for a global land grab on a massive scale. Voluntary 'Principles for Responsible Agricultural Investment' (RAI), being promoted by the World Bank currently are toothless and unlikely to halt land grabbing.  80 to 227 million hectares of land have already been leased or bought up in recent years, mainly in developing countries, to produce food or fuel for the international market. Thousands of people have been dispossessed and had their Human Rights violated.  Civil society groups will voice their opposition to the RAI at the World Bank Conference in Washington DC. Meanwhile, A broad range of social movements are calling on Governments to take strong action to stop land grabbing by:  • Implementing genuine agrarian and aquatic reform programmes • Directing public investment towards peasant agriculture, family farming, artisanal fishing and indigenous food procurement systems that are based on ecological methods • Putting in place policies to stop overconsumption that drives land grabbing -- such as agrofuels mandates and high meat diets in the EU and US • Rejecting the RAI principles and instead abiding by their Human Rights obligations as outlined in the 'Voluntary Guidelines for land and natural resources tenure negotiated at the Committee on World Food Security.

India: The Lost Boys Karma,16, has worked as a miner for over a year in India's northeastern state of Meghalaya, crawling deep inside a 'rat-hole' tunnel to dig coal for seven hours a day. "Inside it is very unstable. The smell is awful," he said sitting on a pile of coal. "It is so dirty, and it is difficult to move. You breathe in the coal and the dust. People get sick like this. There is no water to drink and it is so muddy. It is not nice at all." Child rights activists have reported that there are thousands of children like Karma working in Meghalaya's coal pits, because only those who are small in size are able fit in the claustrophobic tunnels. Many of them, like Karma, are believed to be from neighbouring Indian states, or from nearby Nepal and Bangladesh. Hasina Kharbhih has been fighting the exploitation of these children for several years through her NGO Impulse. She said agents working for mine owners help traffic children to the coal-rich Jaintia Hills district of Meghalaya. They promise impoverished parents high salaries in return for their children's work, but fail to mention the dangerous conditions they will be living in. The mines often flood without warning or cave in, trapping and killing workers. There is rarely any compensation for the victims. "If we die, we die," said Ram Kumar Rai, 40, a Nepalese miner in Jaintia Hills. "They just bury us here. If we live, we suffer and we can't earn. We rot here and die. People who have money, friends or family here, their body will be sent back to Nepal. And those who don’t have anyone, they will just throw their bodies here or there." Rai was recently trapped in a tunnel after a massive rock fell on him. He had severe pain in his back and chest but received no compensation or money for medical treatment from the mine owner. "When someone dies, they hide the body so no one will know. That way the owner does not pay compensation to the family. He doesn't pay a single cent," he said. There are several national laws in India that set labour and safety standards for mines, and ban children aged under 18 from working there. But the industry in Meghalaya is openly flouting these regulations because the state government has failed to implement these laws and punish offenders. Karma has been labouring here since he was 14. His family of seven moved to Jaintia Hills a few years ago from Assam, desperately searching for work. His father had just died of tuberculosis after spending a lifetime in Meghalaya's mines. "I would like to have the chance to study but then my brother would be the only one working and we cannot afford it. And if I try to do another job, the salary would be less. So do we eat or do I go to school?" Karma said. Karma works most days, using a pick-axe to remove coal from the walls of the tunnels. "When I first went in the rat-hole, I was so scared," he said. "I thought the roof would fall on me. My knees were all scratched, but after two weeks I got used to it." "There are boys who are nine to 10 years of age who are doing this work. Younger than that they cannot do it." Despite several reports by the media and child advocates, Ampareen Lyngdoh, Meghalaya's labour minister, said she had yet to see hard evidence of young labourers. "The mining owners were telling me that a child actually cannot pull out the coal from the mine," she said from her office in the state's capital, Shillong. "You need to verify the ages of these so-called children. We are a community which is very small built. If you looked at my face you would not know how old I am. I can challenge you on that. So I might look sweet 16 but my age is something else. "Every time we rescue these so-called children, they come to a medical officer and they manage to get a certificate which says they are above such and such age." Despite her reservations, Lyngdoh said the government is drafting the state's first ever mining policy so they can register all mine owners and set standards for what they can and cannot do. Child labour is banned under these guidelines but 'rat-hole' mining is not, which is why children are employed in the first place. Child rights activist Hasina Kharbhih is sceptical about the state government's sincerity in tackling child labour. "The political will has not been there because half of the mines are also owned by a lot of political leaders. So definitely there is a vested interest of the political leaders to actually ensure that you slow down the whole process of whatever complaint is coming," she said. "These people have no rights at all. A democratic country like India will not be developing and prospering through violation of rights. It is inhumane."

(30 Nov 2018) China's commitment to carbon reduction overseas is being questioned as they expand more infrastructure projects abroad. In Kostolac, Serbia, a power plant complex is currently being expanded with a 715 million US dollar loan from a Chinese state bank and constructed by one of China's largest companies. A foul smell permeated the air in the grey mining town. People rarely opened their windows as thick smoke billows from the huge chimneys of Serbia's main coal-fired power station in Kostolac. Chinese construction workers wearing hard hats are building a huge chimney for the new, "Kostolac B" Serbian power plant that was to be fuelled by lignite, the "dirtiest" type of coal. It produces a huge amount of ash that has to be carefully deposited on vast fields with water sprinklers to prevent the dust from being blown into the atmosphere or the nearby Danube River. Locals living near the Kostolac plant said that more people were getting ill and there was dust in the air. "When we wash our laundry, we leave it to dry and then in three days you see how white laundry becomes black laundry," said Dejan Grujic, a local resident. Zeljko Lazovic, a Kostolac power plant project manager, said that the project was built in accordance with European and Serbian environmental standards. When US President Donald Trump abruptly withdrew from the Paris agreement on tackling global climate change in 2017, China was seen as the champion in the battle to cut carbon emissions and prevent a global environmental catastrophe. Experts said that while China tackled pollution at home by implementing renewable energy schemes and reducing the use of by far the most polluting fossil fuel, coal, it has been pursuing a different strategy abroad. Chinese companies are the world's largest investors in overseas coal plants. They are currently involved in the building of about a fifth of new coal-fired energy capacity around the world, mostly in the countries along its ambitious "Belt and Road" investment programme, which the West saw as an attempt by China to globally increase its political and economic influence. Beijing issued guidelines on foreign investments, urging environmentally friendly practices. But a major worry was that the guidelines are not binding and that the power stations are built mostly in developing states which have low pollution emission standards, or no set standards at all. "So far they (Chinese government) define 'green' as complying with local environmental standards, and we don't think that's enough because a lot of the recipient countries have very low environmental standards," said Huang Wei, a campaigner at Greenpeace. "So I think it's up to China, both China and the recipient countries to lift the standard. And there has to be effort from both sides," she said.

I'm Alex Villarreal with the VOA Special English Development Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has announced a plan to get cleaner-burning cooking stoves into developing countries. The plan aims to reduce deaths caused by smoke from the traditional use of solid fuels and open fires. Almost half the world's people breathe smoke from coal and biomass fuels like wood, dung and crop waste. The smoke can lead to lung cancer, heart disease, low birth weight and other problems. It also increases the risk of pneumonia, a leading cause of death in young children. Women and children are most at risk because they spend the most time in the kitchen. Also, in areas of conflict, the search for fuel puts women at increased risk of violence. The goal of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves is one hundred million homes using safer cookstoves and fuels by the year twenty twenty. Secretary Clinton said that clean stoves could make as big a difference in the world as bed nets or vaccines. She said: "The World Health Organization considers smoke from dirty stoves to be one of the five most serious health risks that face people in poor, developing countries. Nearly two million people die from its effects each year, more than twice the number from malaria. And because the smoke contains greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, as well as black carbon, it contributes to climate change."Founding partners in the alliance include governments and United Nations agencies, nonprofit groups and the energy company Shell. The alliance hopes to raise at least two hundred fifty million dollars within ten years. The United States has promised to donate more than fifty million dollars over the next five years. The aim is to create a strong global market for clean cookstoves. The alliance will identify target markets and work to get women involved in business operations. It will also develop indoor air-quality guidelines, test clean stoves and fuels and develop "research roadmaps."The United States Environmental Protection Agency has donated six million dollars towards the effort. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson says the problem of cookstove pollution is really an issue of poverty. For VOA Special English I'm Alex Villarreal.

We look at how the world map will change in the year 2100, and what coastal cities can do to defend themselves. Correction: An early version of this video suggested that researchers expect to see four feet of sea level rise by the end of the century. While researchers do expect to see at least that level of sea level rise in the future, the exact timing is difficult to project. We regret the error.

Communities near mountaintop removal mining sites are often subject to powerful flash floods. Without trees on steep mountain and valley fill slopes, rainfall quickly becomes dangerous. Some of the most recent flash-flooding occurred in Mingo County in southern West Virginia in May 2009. This was the 19th flood in 11 years to hit Mingo County and surrounding areas of southern West Virginia's coalfields.Killing 300 people. Massey Energy has mountaintop mines along about five miles of Gilbert Creek. Mounts' daughter believes her damage, on Pickering Creek, came from runoff from Massey's Frasure Creek mine, which had begun work in her area. Across from Mounts'own home, a narrow gully turned into a roaring river for two days after the storm. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) notes that iron and manganese concentrations surpass drinking water guidelines in at least 40% of wells in the Appalachian Plateau, and in about 70% of the wells near reclaimed surface coal mines of the region. In a 2003 Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement, the EPA reports that "stream chemistry monitoring efforts show significant increases in conductivity, hardness, sulfate, and selenium concentrations downstream of [mountaintop removal] operations." These contaminated headwaters are the origin of drinking water resources for millions of people in major downstream American cities. Coal slurry, a byproduct of washing and processing coal with water and chemicals, is highly toxic and can leach into groundwater supplies. Up to sixty different chemicals are used to wash coal, not to mention the heavy metals naturally present in the coal. In Prenter Hollow, West Virginia, over 300 residents are suing nine coal companies for water contamination from coal slurry injected in abandoned underground mine shafts. Residents believe that the contaminated water is causing major health issues sometimes causing 1,000 deaths. In the United States today there are groups of individuals bound and determined to paint coal white. They use terms like clean coal and carbon capture like they are preaching the gospel. Many people will say there is no such thing as clean coal, including myself... let me explain. Clean coal, as preached by the coal industry, is a process of removing the Co2 (primary greenhouse gas) from coal-fired power plant emissions or flue gases and storing it indefinitely underground (carbon capture and storage). Coal has a dirty legacy going back at least 100 years that has absolutely nothing to do with flue gas. I have many memories of my father and grand-father standing on a picket line sometimes for months fighting the coal industry for better working conditions and/or better benefits. Mining related illnesses like blacklung still claim lives in the coalfields today. Now with mountaintop removal becoming so dominant other illnesses plague nearby communities. The coal industry as it relates to the health and welfare of its employees and its relationship with nearby communities is the first dirty aspect of coal. Coal mining is the second. The mining of coal actually has a few sub-branches on the 'dirty tree'-- montaintop removal, valley fill, acid mine drainage, air pollution (coal truck traffic, coal dust, blasting particulates). Ask a coal miner coming in from work and before he showers how clean coal mining is. Ask a resident affected by one of the multitude of impacts associated with mountaintop removal (blasting, blasting particulates, cracked home foundations, illnesses, economic destruction...) how clean coal mining is. The third dirty aspect of coal is the processing. This aspect has two main sub-branches -- coal dust, coal slurry.

432Hz allows us to tune into the wisdom of the Universe, Divine Intelligence and our Soul. It creates Unity instead of seperation. It expands our hearts and make us more compassionate and loving. One thing is for sure. A person who resonates with love have inner peace – and this is the starting point for a world were we live in Unity, Peace and Harmony with each-other and Mother Earth. Modern science has begun to recognize what the ancient mystics and wise men have told us for centuries; that everything is in a constant state of vibration. Everything down to the smallest physical particle to the things we cannot not perceive with our (yet) limited senses. The most elemental state of vibration is that of sound. Everything has an optimum range of vibration (frequency), and that rate is called resonance. When we are in resonance, we are in balance. Every organ and every cell in our precious body absorbs and emits sound with particular optimum resonate frequency. 432hz and 528hz tuned music creates resonance in our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body. Listen for 30 days for maximum effects. ................................

In illegal mining, there is a high incidence of human trafficking for forced labour, including a system in which debt bondage is achieved by providing workers with advances or start-up capital. Workers in the mining sector are employed under extremely dangerous conditions, including exposure to toxic substances and severe illnesses, and that women and children tend to be more vulnerable to exploitation. The challenges of due diligence in for example, the gold trading process are faced at every point in the supply chain; from ensuring that gold has been extracted not only legally, but also complying with international human rights and labour standards and /or does not fuel armed conflicts, to retail buyers taking the sourcing of their gold into consideration. While the World Gold Council Conflict-Free Standard is designed to ensure gold producers mine responsibly, it is also very important that the whole supply chain is sustainable and does not contribute to conflict. For instance, the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) – the international trade association that represents the market for gold and silver bullion – has developed Responsible Gold Guidance standards for refiners that lay out due-diligence processes that refiners need to follow, in line with the OECD Guidance on Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected areas. What are the most promising practices to eradicate human trafficking from the supply chains within the mining industry, including gold and other minerals? How does labour exploitation in the mining industry relate to other forms of human trafficking and illicit trade? What laws specifically address human trafficking related to the mining industry and where can improvements be made to further create public policy? And how can academia assist in research around this critical industry? This webinar will focused on these questions and more in a two-hour discussion.

The CEO and co-founder of Crypto Finance, Jan Brzezek, was disappointed by the Consensus 2018 conference in New York last week. The event, one of the most important blockchain summits, didn't offer any news that pushed crypto currency value up again, according to Brzezek. But this only emphasized Switzerland's importance in cryptocurrency. Brzezek praises Swiss regulators, who, for instance, set guidelines for initial coin offerings, and he hopes that other countries will soon follow suit.
