HOUSTON, YOU HAVE A PROBLEM! T.E.J.A.S. Demands #ClimateJustice At COP21 HOUSTON, DECEMBER 1, 2015 - Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services (T.E.J.A.S.) is sending a delegation of frontline leaders to the United Nations Global Climate Talks in Paris. T.E.J.A.S. will participate in two delegations -- Gulf South Rising and Defenders of Mother Earth - highlighting environmental justice and indigenous rights issues across the U.S. Texas remains No. 1 in CO2 emissions in the United States and according to research by Purdue University, Harris County ranks at the top of the list for CO2 emissions making Houston ground zero for climate action. T.E.J.A.S. delegates want the world to take note that impacted communities are experts in developing real solutions to the climate crisis. Low income communities of color suffer from CO2 emissions in addition to cumulative impacts from refineries, ports and chemical plants and should be consulted and included in every step of the process. http://conta.cc/1jwt4MW

Live from the Shell No! Blockade. Hundreds have descended on Seattle's port and are effectively shutting down work for the day. Shell has only a small window of time to complete its maintenance work and disembark in order to stay ahead of brutal artic weather.

Despite the major leak on TransCanada’s Keystone One Pipeline only days ago, despite the dismal safety record of all TransCanada’s pipelines, today the northern leg of KXL received its final permit to proceed.

Please check out my latest on DeSmog on the Keystone pipeline network: https://www.desmogblog.com/…/transcanada-safety-record-no-r…

Today a Nebraska commission handed TransCanada the final permit it needed to build its long-contested Keystone XL pipeline, a decision which did not consider the company’s previous safety violations. The decision to approve the international pipeline comes despite a major oil spill just a few days

“I went to D.C. to use the skills I’ve learned as a nurse in order to support and care for folks standing up against what I view as a system of violence and oppression that will be made worse under a Trump administration,” Lawson said in an interview.

In an unprecedented move, U.S. federal prosecutors turned what would have been a normal legal response to a protest — presenting charges to a court against specific protesters who engage in vandalism or violence — into a broader attack on dissent. They charged Lawson and her fellow arrestees — who have become known as the “J20” resistance — with several felonies that could send them to prison for more than 60 years.

Acquittal of J20 defendants could set precedent for remaining trials.

MUCH NEEDED GOOD NEWS:

You may remember our coverage of Kara Wild, a friend and fellow pipeline fighter who has been locked up in Paris for 17 months while awaiting trial for charges relating to the #LoiTravail student/labor movement in France. Well, yesterday morning she was finally released and will be returning to her home in the States later this week. Please consider donating $5 to the fundraiser below so she can get back on her feet, and back in the fight.

After 17 months detained in isolation in a French men’s prison, Kara has been released. This is a solidarity fund to support our brave friend return after her experience.

Trials begin this week for 200+ protestors who are facing DECADES in prison for disrupting Donald J. Trump's inauguration on January 20th. Several of our dear friends are among them, and we would do anything for them. We hope you will too.

Join Chelsea Manning, the Women's March, and the thousands of others who are crowdfunding for legal expenses and calling for all the charges to be dropped. You can donate here: https://fundrazr.com/j20resistance. Please also SHARE this post and use the #DefendJ20 hashtag to spread word about the trials. We will share updates as we receive them.

“For example, from January 2006 through October 2016, ETP caused $9.67 million in property damage but paid only $24,400 in penalties. From January 2006 through September 2013 Sunoco caused $42 million in property damage, yet paid only $1.2 million in penalties. While government agencies have occasionally compelled some corrective action by ETP and Sunoco after serious incidents, there is no evidence of significant proactive government efforts to prevent these incidents and re...duce the severity of the impacts.”

This looks like a very promising, scalable, and cheap fix for the kinds of renewable energy capacity concerns that some in industry insist make poisoning communities the *best option* for energy production.

"MIT researchers have developed an “air-breathing” battery that could store electricity for very long durations for about one-fifth the cost of current technolo...gies, with minimal location restraints and zero emissions. The battery could be used to make sporadic renewable power a more reliable source of electricity for the grid."

The last hearing scheduled to be held in St. Cloud on October 26th was cancelled. The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission stated the reason the hearing was cancelled was due to “logistical and safety issues related to the numerous events being held at the convention center that Thursday.” Indigenous organizers believe the cancellation of the hearing is a blatant sign of racism from the PU...C, since many community members from the White Earth Reservation were scheduled to be bussed to the hearing. Although many Enbridge employees are bussed down for each of the hearings. Speculation leads to the idea that the hearing was cancelled due to the shutdown of the previous hearing in Duluth. The community members deserve to have their voices heard, they deserve to have that last public hearing, the PUC says that they are reviewing the options available for rescheduling the St. Cloud hearings for a later date.

However, it is not too late to submit a public comment. Here is the information on how:

How does St. James Parish stand to benefit from another pipeline when the existing ones are already poisoning their bodies, air, and water?

St. James community members will be in Baton Rouge tomorrow in front of the Governor's Mansion to express their concerns regarding the Bayou Bridge Pipeline.

Please join us if you are able, or call Governor John Bel Edwards and ask that he #StopETP and say #NoBayouBridge, or at the least he should demand an EIS from the Army Corps of Engineers - (225) 342-7015.
