BP offshore drilling threatens Nova Scotia coastal waters 3.10.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Brent Patterson There is a deposit of an estimated eight billion barrels of oil and 120 trillion cubic feet of gas under the ocean floor off Nova Scotia’s coast that should stay where it is. This past February, defying climate science in favour of corporate profit, the Trudeau government granted BP Canada Energy Group permission to drill up to seven exploratory wells over a three-year period. In April, the Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Board then, not surprisingly, approved the drilling of the first exploration well, Aspy D-11. BP began drilling that well on April 22, Earth Day. Work on the well was briefly halted on June 22 when the West Aquarius rig spilled about 136,000 litres of synthetic drilling mud about 330 kilometres offshore of Halifax. The petroleum board, again not surprisingly, gave permission to BP to resume drilling on July 22. BP's plan to extract oil and gas off the coast of Nova Scotia should be considered a climate crime given it would release millions of tonnes of carbon ...

Hey, Ford! Wellington county's water is not a commodity, it's a human right 19.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Doreen Nicoll Wellington Water Watchers (WWW) has a number of campaigns underway, including their most widely recognized campaign Say No To Nestlé! encouraging the provincial government to phase out bottled water extraction over the next 10 years. Wellington Water Watchers acknowledge that water is a basic human right. Their campaign, Water for Life, Not Profit, focused on Nestlé's Aberfoyle plant which has pumped more than 1.1 billion liters of water since its permit expired 24 months ago. This is only one of two permits Nestlé has in the area. Erin's permit expired almost a year ago but Nestlé continues bottling water from that well too. Together, these two permits allow Nestlé to draw up to 4.7 million litres of water daily from Wellington county's aquifer -- the same aquifer residents depend on for all of their water needs. Nestlé purchased a third well in Elora after outbidding the local community of Centre Wellington. A moratorium currently prevents Nestlé from pumping water from this well. And, ...

What the drought warnings across Canada are telling us 30.8.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Emma Lui As more than 500 forest fires burn across B.C., the drought conditions across the province are also worsening.  On Monday, CBC reported , "Nearly one-quarter of B.C.'s regions are now at the highest drought rating, with no significant rain in the forecast." B.C. is not alone in experiencing droughts and other extreme weather events, all of which are worsening with climate change. Many regions across provinces and territories, which are on the traditional territories of Indigenous peoples, have issued drought warnings. There were 120 forest fires burning in northern Ontario earlier this month, which have now decreased to 26 fires.    These extreme weather patterns seriously threaten clean drinking water sources, watersheds as well as our food security. Despite drought, forest fires and extreme weather events, most governments continue to promote an economic system that puts unlimited growth above water, our climate and the vital needs of people and the planet.  Governments must take immediate ...

Nestlé still pumping after Ontario water permit expired two years ago 10.8.2018 FIFA.com - 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™ - News
Emma Lui Two years ago Nestlé's Aberfoyle permit expired. Yet the multi-billion-dollar water corporation continues to pump up to 3.6 million litres a day from the Aberfoyle well. Since the permit expired on July 31, 2016, Nestlé has pumped an estimated 1.4 billion litres of water and counting (see our counter for the latest number here ). Nestlé's permit for the Erin well expired nearly a year ago on August 31, 2017 but Nestlé also continues to pump up to 1.1 million litres each day. The current legislation allows companies like Nestle to continue to pump water on expired permits if they submit their application before the permit expires. But this problematic legislation allows pumping of groundwater to continue without community input, without the free prior and informed consent of First Nations like Six Nations of the Grand River and without consideration of the impacts on climate change and adequate data on water availability and future demands. Nestlé purchased a third well, the Middlebrook well, in ...
