First Nations across North America sign treaty alliance against the oilsands

The thunderous pounding of Indigenous drums echoed in the air on Thursday as more than 50 Indigenous nations across North America rallied together to sign a historic, pan-continental treaty alliance against oilsands expansion in their traditional territory.

The collaboration, formalized at simultaneous ceremonies in Quebec and B.C., aims to block all proposed pipeline, tanker, and rail projects affecting First Nations land and water, including TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline, Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion, Enbridge’s Line 3 pipeline, and Enbridge Northern Gateway.

At the signing on Musqueam land in Vancouver, the lineup of chiefs waiting to put their names down filled up an entire room. It was a powerful ceremony, and participants clad in the regalia of their nations travelled from across B.C. and northern Washington to be part of the growing movement.

Grand Chief Stewart Phillip of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, who also signed the document, said Indigenous people will no longer stand for dangerous projects on their territory that advance the threat of climate change.

“In this time of great challenge we know that other First Nations will sign on,” he said, extending the invitation to Indigenous communities far and wide.

“Based on our sovereign, inherent right to self-determination, we have collectively decided that we will pick up our sacred responsibilities to the land, waters, and people. We will come together in unity and solidarity to protect our territory from the predations of big oil interests, industry, and everything that represents.”

It’s a movement that’s already happening, he added, with no better example than in North Dakota, where the Standing Rock Sioux have forced the federal government to pause Dakota Access pipeline construction.

Meeting the call to climate change duty

The document, called the Treaty Alliance Against Tar Sands Expansion, commits its signatories to assist one another when called upon in the battle against oilsands expansion, and to work in partnership to move society towards more sustainable lifestyles. By aligning themselves with other Indigenous nations across Canada and the northern U.S., participants hope to ensure that dangerous projects are not able to “escape” by using alternative routes.

“We have the right and the responsibility to stop these major threats to our lands, our waters and our peoples,” said Kanesatake Grand Chief Serge Simon. “For example, from Quebec, we will work with our First Nation allies in B.C. to make sure that the Kinder Morgan pipeline does not pass, and we know they’ll help us do the same against Energy East.”

It comes not only from a legal and cultural responsibility to protect their land, water, air, and climate from harm, said Grand Chief Derek Nepinak of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, but a desire to safeguard a future for all peoples, Indigenous and non-Indigenous as well.

“We want to work with the Prime Minister and the government to develop a sustainable economy that does not marginalize our people,” he said. “This is a time of great spiritual awakening for our peoples as we reinvigorate our Nations and ensure a better tomorrow for all.”

While First Nations, environmentalists and other key stakeholders across North America argue that pipelines, tankers, and oil by rail increase the risk of catastrophic oil spills, threaten critical marine and terrestrial ecosystems, and put international climate targets out of reach, energy companies argue that they will revitalize struggling Canadian economies by bringing energy to overseas markets.

The energy companies also argue that their proposed projects promote responsible resources development. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers however, Canada’s largest oil and gas lobby group, said the Treaty Alliance will not change the way its members do business with Indigenous communities.

Oil and gas industry to carry on

“Our member companies work with First Nations and Metis communities all the time, regularly, and have a long history of doing that,” said Brian McGuigan, CAPP’s manager of aboriginal policy. “We’ll continue to work with them. Members work with them everyday and have very positive relationships… It’s not always easy conversations, but they continue the dialogue.”

He would not comment on whether he felt the newly-signed document would hinder CAPP’s goal of getting Canadian oil to tidewater.

The new treaty builds on a series of major First Nations victories against oilsands expansion projects, including a Federal Court of Appeal decision in June that overturned the Harper government’s approval of the Enbridge Northern Gateway project, and rallies across the continent that contributed to U.S. President Barack Obama’s decision to kill the Keystone XL pipeline.

American signatories to the treaty include the Standing Rock Sioux, who are fighting Dakota Access Pipeline, the Lummi Nation in Washington, which is currently fighting the Trans Mountain expansion, and the White Earth Nation in Minnesota, which has launched a legal complaint against the Enbridge Line 3 program. Canadian signatories include B.C.’s Katzie First Nation, Tsleil-Waututh Nation, Carrier Sekani Tribal Council, Wet’suwet’en First Nation, and Heiltsuk First Nation, among others.

Here’s what the treaty says:

“Therefore, our Nations hereby join together under the present treaty to officially prohibit and to agree to collectively challenge and resist the use of our respective territories and coasts in connection with the expansion of the production of the Alberta Tar Sands, including for the transport of such expanded production, whether by pipeline, rail or tanker.

As sovereign Indigenous Nations, we enter this treaty pursuant to our inherent legal authority and responsibility to protect our respective territories from threats to our lands, waters, air and climate, but we do so knowing full well that it is in the best interest of all peoples, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, to put a stop to the threat of Tar Sands expansion.

We wish to work in collaboration with all peoples and all governments in building a more equitable and sustainable future, one that will produce healthier and more prosperous communities across Turtle Island and beyond, as well as preserve and protect our peoples’ way of life.”

The ‘Tesla of eco-villages’ is developing off-grid villages that grow their own food and generate their own power

ReGen VillageReGen Villages

If you move into a new neighborhood being constructed outside of Amsterdam, your salad greens might come from the greenhouse attached to your home. Your eggs could be gathered from the village chicken coop, and your food waste would all get harvested for compost.

ReGen Villages is a startup real estate development company aiming to build small, self-sustaining residential communities around the world. The first one is expected to be completed in Almere, Netherlands in 2018. Unlike traditional subdivisions, ReGen villages would be “regenerative” (hence the name), since they’d use resources in a closed loop.

“Regenerative means systems where the output of one system can actually be the input of another,” ReGen’s founder, James Ehrlich tells Business Insider.

In ReGen villages, household food waste is composted and fed to flies, which in turn feeds fish, which then fertilizes aquaponic gardens (multi-layered systems that combine fish farming and hydroponic agriculture, with plant roots submerged in nutrient-rich solution rather than soil). Those aquaponic farms grow produce for residents to eat, as do seasonal gardens, which are be fertilized by waste from livestock raised to feed residents. Rainwater is harvested and filtered for use in the farms and gardens, and on-site solar panels power the homes.

ReGen Village diagramReGen Villages

Though this kind of regenerative, self-sufficient neighborhood might sound like a pipe dream, ReGen has already determined its first two sites. Ehrlich says he expects to sign a memo of understanding for a plot of land in Lund, Sweden in the coming weeks — the agreement will outline the intent to purchase the land and set forth initial terms. And ReGen’s first site in the Netherlands is currently undergoing archaeological testing to make sure the village won’t be built on top of any historic ruins.

Ehrlich expects to break ground there in the first quarter of 2017, begin construction by the end of the summer, and have the first 25 homes built by the end of the year.

Each completed village will house 100 families on about 50 acres. Each family’s house will have an attached greenhouse for growing personal crops, and the village’s communal farms and livestock will be managed and run by ReGen staff. Individuals can pitch in their labor as a way to lower the monthly fees homeowners pay on top of their mortgages. (In the Almere community, Ehrlich expects that cost to be around $560.)

ReGen Village greenhouseReGen Villages

“It’s this concept that the way you look at a subdivision is edible, so you walk through the path and there’s berries and fruit trees and nuts and spices and all kinds of things to enjoy,” Ehrlich says. “We don’t do lawns, we don’t do golf courses or tennis courts. That’s a good place to grow food, so we’re going to grow food there.”

Ehrlich refers to ReGen as the “Tesla of eco-villages,” because he says the neighborhoods will allow eco-conscious people to elegantly go off the grid on their own terms. The villages will also use sensors and technology to monitor energy use, farming efficiency, and living patterns, and send that data to the cloud so villages in similar geographic regions can learn from each other. The strategy is similar to the way Tesla uses machine learning to analyze data gathered from the autopilot systems in its cars.

ReGen, which was founded in 2015, has partnered with Copenhagen-based architecture firm Effekt to design all the villages. Ehrlich says he hopes to build many more than the two that are already in progress — he’s in discussions about buying sites in Denmark, Norway, Germany and Belgium.

ReGen Village streetReGen Villages

Ehrlich says the ReGen villages are designed to give people an environmentally friendly alternative to urban life. He also hopes they can help make agriculture more sustainable and less wasteful.

He envisions these communities as disaster-resistant as well, since they could likely continue running if the current grid were compromised. He mentions Superstorm Sandy as an example.

“My family was without power for three weeks, and it got real after about three days,” he says. “You run out of food, and your credit card doesn’t work, and even if you have cash, you go to the supermarket and the shelves are bare. It doesn’t take long for civilization to collapse, for there to be chaos.”

Not every village could produce enough food or harvest enough water to satisfy all of its residents, of course. Ehrlich says the percentage of the nutritional needs the village could fulfill will depend on the climate in a given place (a farm in Hawaii could produce more year-round food than one in Sweden), as well as what the residents have come to expect to eat (imported delicacies, processed food, etc).

But Ehrlich’s initial estimates are optimistic — he says a village could produce enough fresh food to take care of 50-100% of the needs of its residents.

ReGen village farmReGen Villages

And if there’s any excess food or energy gathered, he says, that could also be sold, and the profits could offset residents’ fees.

Ehrlich’s next step is to firm up the designs for the different houses that prospective buyers will be able to purchase in the Netherlands. Then he can start compiling the initial list of people who are seriously interested in moving in.


The Patent That Could Destroy Monsanto And Change The World…


If there’s anything you read – or share – let this be it. The content of this article has potential to radically shift the world in a variety of positive ways. And as Monsanto would love for this article to not go viral, all we can ask is that you share, share, share the information being presented so that it can reach as many people as possible.

In 2006, a patent was granted to a man named Paul Stamets. Though Paul is the world’s leading mycologist, his patent has received very little attention and exposure. Why is that? Stated by executives in the pesticide industry, this patent represents “the most disruptive technology we have ever witnessed.” And when the executives say disruptive, they are referring to it being disruptive to the chemical pesticides industry.

What has Paul discovered? The mycologist has figured out how to use mother nature’s own creations to keep insects from destroying crops. It’s what is being called SMART pesticides. These pesticides provide safe & nearly permanent solution for controlling over 200,000 species of insects – and all thanks to the ‘magic’ of mushrooms.

Paul does this by taking entomopathogenic Fungi (fungi that destroys insects) and morphs it so it does not produce spores. In turn, this actually attracts the insects who then eat and turn into fungi from the inside out!

This patent has potential to revolutionize the way humans grow crops – if it can be allowed to reach mass exposure.

To tolerate the use of pesticides in modern agriculture is to deny evidence proving its detrimental effects against the environment. Such ignorance really can no longer be tolerated. For example, can you imagine a world without bees?

Monsanto’s chemical concoctions which are being sprayed all over farmers’ fields around the world are attributed to the large-scale bee die off. While a growing number of countries are banning Monsanto, it’s still being used in in nations who should be aware of its dangers. To say that new methods need to be implemented before it is too late is an understatement…

Monsanto presently generates $16 billion dollars per year (as reported in 2014), therefore you can be certain they do not want anything interrupting that flow of revenue. Such income gives them nearly limitless resources and abilities to suppress information that may be damaging their reputation.

But by becoming educated on the benefits of growing sustainable, organic, and bio-dynamic food, sharing articles like this, and boycotting GMO & herbicide-sprayed crops, the corporate demon may soon get the message.

Court Stops U.S. Fish & Wildlife from Killing Wild Red Wolves

The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina today issued a preliminary injunction that orders the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to stop capturing and killing of the rapidly dwindling population of wild red wolves.

“This is a great day for red wolves and for anyone who loves nature in eastern North Carolina,” said Sierra Weaver, senior attorney for the Southern Environmental Law Center. “The court was clear that it’s the Fish and Wildlife Service’s job to conserve this endangered species, not drive it to extinction. The agency cannot simply abandon that responsibility.”

The groups brought the federal agency to court for its failure to protect the world’s only wild population of red wolves—previously estimated to be more than 100 animals.

A strong majority of North Carolinians support the effort to recover the native red wolf, according to a new poll conducted by Tulchin Research. The new poll revealed that 73 percent of North Carolinians said they support red wolf recovery.

“We are pleased the court recognized that allowing the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to issue lethal and non-lethal permits for the removal of red wolves from the wild, was a pathway to extinction, not recovery,” said Kim Wheeler, executive director, Red Wolf Coalition.

“It is reassuring that the court recognized the importance of fostering the recovery of this endangered species.”

Victory for Red Wolves!

Black Elk vision of Seventh Generation prophecy is happening at Sacred Stone Camp

The Sacred Stone Camp near Cannonball has been housing demonstrators who oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline since late May.

The tent city has quickly grown with representatives of approximately sixty tribes at the site along with individuals from all over the world.

The size of this gathering has come as a surprise to many, but for some Native Americans, this assembly has been anticipated for Seven Generations.

Dakota Goodhouse is one of those who sees coincidences between the past and present.

He teaches a course on Native American Studies at United Tribes Technical College. He’s very familiar with the Seventh Generation prophecy, attributed to Black Elk and other tribal leaders in the late 1800s.

Black Elk’s dream is that this illusion of many hoops will go away and we’ll all see one hoop again,” said Goodhouse.

Goodhouse says, the vision Black Elk foretold depicted a great coming together of Native Americans.

He says the dream also included a reuniting of all races of people.

The Lakota Holy Man saw races represented by hoops and in Seven Generations he saw all hoops becoming one.

“I have to wonder if we’re living in that time now? I do see a resurgence in language and culture in history; it’s nice to see the illusion of many hoops being broken,” said Goodhouse.

The students in his class believe the Sacred Stone Camp is the fulfillment of the Seventh Generation prophecy.

“I think it’s really awesome to see all our different tribes coming together and putting their difference aside. This time, right here, right now is where we all need to come together,” said Katrina Her Many Horses, of Pine Ridge, S.D.

Melvin Miner of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe agrees.

“I think what’s going on with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the Dakota Access Pipeline conflict, you could say there has been an awakening and awareness that the prophecy is coming to light,” said Miner.

The belief that the Sacred Stone Camp is part of a 125-year-old prophecy elevates the cause for which the water protectors have come together.


Native American tribes in Canada, U.S. to sign treaty to protect Yellowstone grizzlies

U.S. and Canada-based Native American tribes are expected to sign a treaty on Friday that urges protections be maintained for grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park.

The treaty is the latest sign of growing American Indian activism tied to tribal rights and the environment, and just the third such cross-border agreement in 150 years, tribal members involved said.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said earlier this year that Yellowstone-area grizzlies had come back from the brink of extinction and it proposed stripping U.S. Endangered Species Act protections from the population of about 700 bears.

The move would open the way for hunting bears that roam outside the park’s borders in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.

The treaty, expected to be signed by Piikani Nation and other tribes in the western Canadian province of Alberta on Friday, declares support by more than 50 tribes for protecting grizzlies from random killing and preserving their habitat against development.

The planned ceremony comes two days before representatives of other tribes mostly in and around the U.S. Rocky Mountain West are expected to sign the same treaty during a ceremony in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

The Canada-based tribes are signing the measure to show solidarity with tribes based in the United States, as they are all united by cultural and religious ties to grizzlies.

Chief Stanley Grier of the Piikani Nation and representatives from such tribes as the Blackfeet Nation in Montana and the Shoshone-Bannock of eastern Idaho, argue grizzlies are too sacred and culturally important to be killed by hunters.

“There should be no doubt that delisting and trophy hunting the grizzly bear on ancestral tribal and treaty lands threatens irreparable harm to those sites and to tribal sovereignty and religious freedom,” Grier said.

Tribal members also say the U.S. government failed to engage in “meaningful consultation” before decisions were made about delisting grizzlies.

Serena Baker, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, said the agency had sought since 2014 to reach out to about 50 tribes – through letters, phone calls and emails – about Yellowstone grizzlies.

“The service has and is continuing to offer government-to-government consultation with Native American tribes west of the Mississippi,” she said on Thursday.

Media Black-out: Militarized Police Raid Dakota Protest To Break Up Peaceful Prayer Circle — Please Help Spread This Story

(Stillness in the Storm Editor) “All is being revealed.” Peaceful “protestors” were holding prayer and the police-state sent in militarized troops to disburse the gathering. While this is obviously troubling, it is making plain to see for the sleeping masses how nazi-like the world as become—especially the so-called land of the free and home of the brave. But without your help to share this story, we can’t alert others as to the grievous nature of what is taking place.This event is helping draw awareness to the current state of affairs, which is that we are considered enemies of the state. In this case, the people who are fighting big business for the basic human right of clean water are being trampled under the foot of tyranny. But when good people do something, evil cannot flourish.Thank you to those brave souls who attended this event and helped play their part in revealing the true nature of government for the world to see. The fact that those gathered were completely peaceful and non-violent lets everyone who sees this story know that things are not right and change is needed. Hence, the media black-out trying to keep it quiet ensure the sleeping masses don’t become aware.

Please do your part to share this story far and wide, especially with those sleeping friends and family who still think we live in a “free world.” When the illusion of freedom has been dispelled the sleeping giant will rise to secure the freedom that has always been waiting in the wings.

Heavily-militarized police decked in riot gear and armed to the teeth, arrived by MRAP and other military-grade vehicles to a Dakota Access Pipeline construction site — not to crack down on a violent and destructive riot—but to break up … a peaceful prayer gathering.

Members of the Standing Rock Sioux and other Native American Nations and their supporters had gathered to pray and sing songs at the construction site Wednesday, when Morton County, North Dakota, Sheriff’s Office deployed an insanely disproportionate response to break up the unarmed and otherwise wholly peaceful gathering.
Witness and participant Thomas H. Joseph II broadcast the inexplicable law enforcement action using Facebook Live. In his post to the social media platform, noting women and children’s lives were threatened by the crackdown, he wrote:

“We gathered in prayer, un-armed, prayed, sang songs, and attempted to leave. No threats, No vandalism, No violence was taken on our part.”

At least 21 people were arrested in the needless clash — but divergent accounts from law enforcement and witnesses show continued misperceptions about the insidious pipeline which has drawn national attention despite a dearth of corporate media coverage.

Despite repeatedly proven claims from the over 7,000 water protectors — the term preferred over ‘protesters,’ since the pipeline slated to run beneath the Missouri River threatens to contaminate the tribal water supply and that of some 18 million people — that they are unarmed, both corporate and state response has treated them as terrorists.

A post to Facebook from Sacred Stone Camp — which, in April, became the first of a growing number of encampments intended to peacefully block pipeline construction crews — stated North Dakota law enforcement “deployed armed personnel with shotguns and assault rifles, military vehicles, and what looks like an aerial spray on peaceful Water Protectors gathered in prayer.”

“We had a really nice ceremony,” said a Sicangu Lakota grandmother in video footage from the scene. “Then we looked and over that way, there were a few police and the next thing we knew there were 40 police all in riot gear.”

Video indeed shows a number of armored vehicles blocking the road, as officers fit more for the streets of war-ravaged Aleppo advance on the gathering, and a helicopter hovers overhead.

Police swarmed the group — as water protectors and attendees stood calmly with hands clearly raised — and began indiscriminately accosting people while ordering everyone into their vehicles.

At least one officer pointed his weapon at an unarmed person, when, as the Morton County Sheriff’s Department alleged afterward in a statement, “a protester on horseback charged at an officer in what was viewed as an act of aggression.”
Video would seem to dispute this claim, as a number of people ride horses around the scene, but none appears to charge directly at any of the militarized cops.


Police admitted to the militarized deployment via a statement posted on social media, but clarified — amid doubts from those at the scene — the small plane was only a local crop duster spraying in the area.

Under the pretense the water protectors were trespassing on private property — and although those in attendance were only blocked and accosted once they began to disburse — the Morton County Sheriff’s Office acknowledged it sent armored vehicles, specialized equipment, and “less lethal ammunition using bean-bag rounds” to force people from the area.

However measured law enforcement’s official statements appeared, witnesses to the absurd and unnecessary action painted an entirely different picture of the incident.

As Red Warrior Camp alarmingly summarized in a statement on its Facebook page:

“Today Native ceremonies conducted along the Dakota Access Pipeline route were disrupted by militarized police. We have continued to declare ourselves to be non-violent and unarmed, the police, acting as private security and protectors of the corporations and their nefarious and destructive interests, responded in full force with armoured vehicles, shotguns, assault rifles, snipers, helicopters, tear gas, resulting in 21 confirmed arrests. There are also reports coming back that the police were snatching people’s phones and other recording devices, deleting pictures and video without permission and in direct violation of North Dakota laws. This response, these actions on the part of the police are clear evidence of the egregious and ongoing escalation of the violations of our Indigenous and Human Rights.”

Although corporate media has largely ignored the massive occupation and movement to halt Energy Transfer Partners’ construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, major outlets were forced to address the issue when, at the beginning of September, mercenaries hired by the company brutally attacked unarmed water protectors — including women and children — with vicious dogs, pepper spray, and tear gas.

As Native Americans and activists peacefully chanted “water is life,” a private security firm — linked to notorious international firm G4S, which once employed the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooter — unleashed dogs indiscriminately into the crowd to maul and maim anyone in their path.

That attack took place after a Standing Rock Sioux historian, who had only recently been permitted onto private property outside the reservation to survey the land for culturally and historically significant sites, discovered construction crews in essence used court documentation as a guide to decimate those sites in area 20 miles removed from ongoing pipeline construction.

Outraged water protectors flocked to the scene in protest, but although they remained peaceful and brought no weapons, the private security firm’s henchmen initiated the brutal attack.

Now, it appears, North Dakota law enforcement has picked up where private security left off — acting in the interests of Big Oil against peoples native to the land.

The ongoing dispute — in pure number of Native and indigenous peoples from around the country and world, and in callous and brutal governmental response — has been deemed the largest standoff between Native Americans and the U.S. government in over 100 years, evidencing continued exploitation of and violence by the same forces who historically committed genocide in battles over the same land.

“We are constantly fed the narrative that the police are armed and active in the protection of the public,” Red Warrior Camp’s statement continued. “Are we not the public? Are the violations of our rights so easily and repeatedly acceptable? Are you paying attention? The United States of America is occupying Indigenous Land and when their occupation and ruination of our lands and waters is challenged they respond with unprecedented violence, with kidnapping our brothers and sisters protecting us and our territories. They are incarcerating our Warriors, our Women, our Youth. Today’s ceremony should never have been interrupted, no arrests should have been made and certainly the military machine should not have been called in in response to our prayers.”

Federal and state courts along Dakota Access Pipeline’s planned 1,172-mile route have halted construction in a number of locations and permitted Native Americans to continue camping, provided they assume responsibility for any resulting issues of liability.

Water protectors from around the world at the various camps have repeatedly pleaded with the Obama administration to issue a permanent stoppage of construction. Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman David Archambault II even appealed to the United Nations to intervene, telling reporters “just because something is legal, does not make it right.

“The world needs to know what is happening to the Indigenous peoples of the United States,” he told the U.N. Human Rights Commission in Geneva in mid-September.

“This pipeline violates our treaty rights and our human rights, and it violates the U.N.’s own Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. I hope the U.N. will use its influence and international platform to protect the rights of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.”

Indeed the world — if not mainstream media, Big Oil, or the U.S. government — is watching, and sees how the State effectively dismisses the rights of Native Americans in favor of corporate profits. But the water protectors refuse to back down until the Dakota Access Pipeline project is forever tabled and can no longer threaten sacred sites and precious water supplies — no matter how violent the crackdowns on peaceful people become.

“We have no fear,” the Red Warrior Camp concluded its statement, “why should we when we speak and act the truth?”

Coast Salish artist creates surreal images of greed, pollution and pipelines

At first glance, Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun’s work reflects his Coast Salish and Okanagan heritage. Vibrant colours combine with cultural references in the forms of masks, animals and totems.

But on deeper inspection it tells stories of colonialism, corporate greed and pollution — just to name a few.

“You’re looking at the landscape that is just butchered and destroyed and the shaman is standing there going, ‘I can help you, I can heal your soul. But all the things you’re looking at, I can’t fix that,'” Yuxweluptun said, describing his painting Shaman Comes to Fix. It currently hangs in Ottawa’s National Gallery.

A retrospective of his work, called Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun: Unceded Territories, is currently on display at Vancouver’s Museum of Anthropology. The opening was the biggest in the museum’s history, with over 2,000 people in attendance.

Yuxweluptun has been painting his environmental concerns now for over 40 years, and his work has been compared to that of surrealist Salvador Dali.

Artist Website

He cites clear cutting, climate change and oil pipelines as inspiration for the themes in his work.

“As an artist, our job description is the world,” he said. “And these are things that the world has to [deal] with.”

Lately, Yuxweluptun has been painting what he called “super predators” in paintings like Fish Farmers They Have Sea Lice and Christy Clark and the Kinder Morgan Go-Go Girls.

“And that’s my job… is to talk to the world, to enlighten the world, to entertain the world, to make them happy, to make them sad, to make them think,” he said.

“That’s what I like to do, is to think in existential ways to allow people to say, ‘Yeah, we can change, we can make this a better world.’ And that takes time.”


Robert Redford: I Stand with the Standing Rock Sioux

Written by Robert Redford: Robert Redford is an actor, director and trustee of the Natural Resources Defense Council

Something all too familiar is happening in North Dakota right now: Once again, Native Americans are being asked to accept a raw deal.

The short version is this: a private energy company, Energy Transfer Partners, is building a pipeline that runs from North Dakota to Illinois like a 1,200-mile zipper that cuts across four states. If completed, the Dakota Access Pipeline will carry nearly half a million barrels of oil each day across the watersheds the Standing Rock Sioux tribe use for drinking water. Now, thousands of Native Americans have gathered at one of the most controversial sections of the proposed pipeline’s path and are staging a 24/7 protest. They’ve created a settlement in the middle of their North Dakota home to try to prevent the pipeline from being finished.

The pipeline’s existence and its proposed path are each “legal,” of course. Permits were filed. Proposals were considered. A previous route much closer to Bismarck—a primarily white city—was scrapped amid concerns for its citizens’ health and well-being, and a new “more acceptable” route was carved through the home of the Standing Rock Sioux. In short, it’s the business as usual that helps private corporations get what they want in most of the United States, often at the expense of Native Americans.

But if this is legal, one must seriously question the laws of the land. They are laws that prioritize the profits of energy companies over the rights of people who actually have to live on the land, drink its water and eat its food.

The net result is that yet another Native American tribe is being asked to suffer yet again for the “good” of the rest of the country.

But who is this deal good for? There is one winner (Energy Transfer Partners) and about 7 billion losers (everyone else). Climate change is altering how we think about resource use forever, because bad resource use now affects every single one of us. Once burned, the carbon that the proposed DPAL pipeline carried will continue warming our world for years.

We can’t go back in time. We can’t unburn the carbon we’ve burnt—just as we can’t go back in time and change how we as a nation treated Native Americans. But what we can do is try, with all of our might, to break from our country’s tradition of deception and dishonesty in its treatment of its native people, and our deception and dishonesty about the true costs of fossil fuels. Often times—as is the case with the DAPL pipeline—the two are intertwined.

The time has come to recognize and name the fossil fuel industry for what it is: a clear and present danger to the health, prosperity and national security of all of our nation’s people.

National Security? Yes. A recent article in the New York Times reveals that because of climate change many cities on our Eastern Seaboard—including Norfolk, Virginia, home of Naval Station Norfolk, the world’s largest naval base—are having to cope with regular floods that 100 years ago were unheard of.

The Standing Rock protest is trying to prevent a pipeline from being built in North Dakota. But what we need to ask ourselves sooner rather than later is this: Should new pipelines be built at all? Thousands of people are actually going to North Dakota to support the Sioux. But anyone can help in other ways. You can give money. You can contribute to the Sacred Stone Camp Legal Defense Fund or to the Sacred Stone Camp gofundme account. You can give time by making phone calls. Call North Dakota governor Jack Dalrymple at 701-328-2200 and politely share your opinion, or call the White House at 202-456-1111 and politely tell President Obama to rescind the Army Corps of Engineers’ permit for the Dakota Access Pipeline. Though not all of us are able to go to North Dakota and actually stand with Standing Rock, we can stand united. We can be a sea of people, rising up together to prevent the seas from rising and our history of mistreatment of Native Americas from repeating. The Sioux people of North Dakota aren’t just fighting for their homes and their water. They’re fighting for our homes and water, our families and futures, our children’s chances for a habitable home.

Homesick Dog Escapes From Shelter Trying To Unite With Previous Owner

Security video caught Ginger, the German shepherd, climbing to the top of her kennel and breaking free.

“Everybody believes she was trying to make her way back to her old owner because she was found close to where her old home was,” the shelter’s manager Gina Whiteside said.

Ginger busted out only a few hours after her former owner dropped her off at the shelter because he could no longer take care of her.

The 2-year-old dog opened three doors to get out, left teeth marks on a door handle and proof that where there’s a will, there’s a way.

“As she was coming out he door, what we saw is this quick little glance back at the shelter saying: ‘See ya!’ ” Whiteside said.

During Ginger’s great escape, she set off the shelter’s motion sensors, which alerted security.

“The staff came in. There were phones off the counter. Everything was kind of messed up,” Whiteside said.

That was because Ginger jumped onto the counter and stopped to pose for the camera.

“We just want to honor the owner’s wishes. It was difficult for him to turn her in and make that decision. Now, our job is to find her a home that’s going to be permanent,” Whiteside added.


A River of Waste: The Hazardous Truth About Factory Farms

A heart-stopping new documentary, A RIVER OF WASTE exposes a huge health and environmental scandal in our modern industrial system of meat and poultry production. Some scientists have gone so far as to call the condemned current factory farm practices as “mini Chernobyls.” In the U.S. and elsewhere, the meat and poultry industry is dominated by dangerous uses of arsenic, antibiotics, growth hormones and by the dumping of massive amounts of sewage in fragile waterways and environments. The film documents the vast catastrophic impact on the environment and public health as well as focuses on the individual lives damaged and destroyed.

After uproar, U.S. government says does not plan to kill wild horses

By Alex Dobuzinskis

The U.S. government said on Wednesday it has no plans to euthanize a large share of the more than 45,000 wild horses and burros removed from lands mostly in the U.S. West, after an advisory panel’s proposal to kill some of the animals sparked outrage.

U.S. Bureau of Land Management officials said they struggle to find people to adopt the growing number of wild horses and burros, which costs the agency millions annually to maintain in corrals and pasturelands.

The National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board on Friday recommended the bureau consider euthanizing the animals that cannot be adopted, or selling them to companies that might slaughter them.

But Tom Gorey, a spokesman for the bureau, said in an email that the agency will “continue its current policy of caring for unadopted or unsold wild horses and burros” and will “not sell or send any animals to slaughter.”

File photo of several wild horses escaping as a helicopter is used by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to gather horses into a trap south of Garrison, Utah © REUTERS/Jim Urquhart/File Photo File photo of several wild horses escaping as a helicopter is used by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to gather horses into a trap south of Garrison, Utah The bureau is expected to formally respond to the panel at its next meeting within months.

The panel’s recommendation created an uproar among animal rights activists and highlighted the challenges ahead for the U.S. government as it seeks to control the population of wild horses and burros.

Gillian Lyons, wild horse and burro program manager for the Humane Society of the United States, said members of the public were quick to criticize the idea of killing the wild animals.

“It’s something the American public just doesn’t know about, you don’t think of wild horses being held in facilities all across the United States,” Lyons said.

She added that the bureau has a responsibility to the animals because it captured them.

Even after decades of round-ups of wild horses and burros, 67,000 of these animals roam the United States, mostly in Nevada and California, according to government estimates.

Without natural predators, they have proliferated far beyond the roughly 27,000 animals the U.S. government says would be a population low enough to prevent overgrazing and preserve land for other animals.

The bureau spends nearly $50 million a year in upkeep for captured horses and burros, Gorey said.

The Humane Society alleges the bureau spends so much paying private contractors to hold the animals that it cannot afford to expand its program to administer birth control to the animals on the range, which it contends would be more effective for population control than round-ups.

But the bureau counters fertility control is difficult, in part because the birth control drug wears off in less than two years.

Truly remarkable! Bird revived back to LIFE by another bird

This is the heart-warming moment a stubborn bird saved his friend’s life by trying to revive it after it hit a window.
The scene, filmed in Saudi Arabia, was posted on LiveLeak by a baffled eyewitness.
It shows a nervous robin slapping its wings as he tries to give its pal – who lies unconscious on its back – the ‘kiss of life’ to revive it.
It is believed the other robin was knocked out by flying into a glass window.
The generous bird does not give up on his friend’s life and keeps stroking it with its beak – but the robin does not move and lies on its back unconscious.
The first bird then changes tactics and tries to move the fallen robin to turn it around.
Finally, slowly, the bird starts flapping its wings and regains consciousness.
The last peck sends the injured bird flying, followed by his saviour.

Move Over Cotton, Say Hello to Hemp — The ‘Forbidden’ Crop That is Taking the World by Storm


hemp-usesAllowing and encouraging domestic hemp cultivation would be a boon for small farmers, especially organic farmers. I’m talking only about industrial hemp, not medical cannabis/marijuana, which continues to prove its merits and gain acceptance.

Industrial hemp’s use should be a no-brainer. But it’s a complex boondoggle of legal and bureaucratic nonsense even without THC, the molecule that leads to “Reefer Madness”.

Industrial hemp commercial cultivation is legal in Canada. But the USA hemp industry was pushed to the side by government connected industry insiders whose monopolies were threatened when it appeared hemp may boom and compete for the very products of their monopolist concerns.

Circa 1937, the hemp industry had been given a mechanical invention gift known as the decoricator machine was invented. It was a machine that was to hemp what the 19th Century cotton gin was. It replaced hand shredding of hemp to glean its fibers, fibers that could be used for textiles, clothing, paper, and plastic.

With the advent of the decoricator, hemp would have been able to take over competing industries in paper, textiles for clothing and other applications, fuel, and plastics. Growing hemp in abundance was easy, and it’s plant to harvest time was no more than six months.

According to Popular Mechanics during that time, “10,000 acres devoted to hemp will produce as much paper as 40,000 acres of average [forest] pulp land.” Then a  small number of large businesses with competition concerns used high level government connections to push through the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937.

The ensuing marijuana scares hyped by movies such as “Reefer Madness” brought about more legislation that would prohibit all hemp cultivation, even hemp without THC.

Prior to this, even without the high speed decoricator, hemp was an easy cash crop for small farmers, some of whom were recruited to continue cultivating hemp during WW II to provide hemp fibers for U.S. Naval ships’ ropes as well as other military applications.

And prior to that, hemp was so important during colonial and early American times that farmers were virtually required to cultivate it along with their other crops.

George Washington – “Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere.”

Thomas Jefferson – “Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth and protection of the country.”

Hemp for Nutrition

Hulled hemp seeds, their powders and cold pressed oils provide all the essential amino acids for easily digested high protein. Hemp is not only very high in omega-3, but it provides an almost perfect ratio of omega-3 to omega-6.

It is truly a super food that you can buy in health food stores or online. The seeds come from Canada, where industrial hemp is legal. Hemp is so nutritionally dense that one could survive on hemp seeds alone during extreme food shortages. If hemp were legal, you could easily grow your own.

Hemp Improves Farming

Hemp plants don’t need pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, which rely mostly on the phosphate industry. A phosphate industry byproduct is the sodium fluoride that is sold to municipality water works for our poisoned tap water.

The runoff from fields of phosphate fertilizers into waterways that merge with seawater is causing all sorts of nitrogen and phosphorous excesses and imbalances, leading to algae that stifles the water’s ecological support systems.

Hemp’s thick roots ward off weeds, and growing hemp improves the soil’s nitrogen, making that soil better for other crops. They would be useful and lucrative rotation crops for organic farmers.

Hemp plants have a growth cycle of only four months. In mild climates, harvesting hemp two times in one year would create an annual cash cow for farmers. The marijuana taboo is eliminated by allowing the male plants to continually pollinate the female plants. This reduces psychotropic THC to legal levels.

Eliminating Toxic Petrochemical Plastics

There is a clump of plastic waste residue larger than the state of Texas floating in the middle of the Pacific. A lot of it is expected to decompose, creating a plastic soup in the ocean. The toxins from this plastic soup spread out into other oceanic regions and are hazardous to fish and bird wildlife. This soup could find its way into our kitchens as well!

All kinds of plastics are produced with hemp, from clear wraps for foods to automobile parts. Hemp plastics are durable and heat resistant. And they are bio-degradable. Recently the French auto industry use hemp to manufacture some of its automobile parts. Henry Ford pioneered this in 1941 when he built his “vegetable car” with hemp and flax. It was stronger and lighter than steel cars.

Ford’s hemp-mobile also used hemp bio-diesel fuel, which creates very little pollution. The petroleum industry didn’t want to see or hear that. Hemp seeds were even used to make paints and lacquers in the mid-1930s.

Petrochemical plastics for all purposes could be replaced with hemp plastics that are non-toxic and bio-degradable. Bye-bye BPA!

Construction Materials for Housing

Amazingly, housing construction materials made from hemp fibers have been discovered to be superior to most cheap materials used in housing construction these days. Ever see a house under construction after its initial framing?

What you’ll usually see before whatever exterior coating is used are sheets of wood substitutes, either pasteboard or particle board or pressboards, some of which are processed and bound with toxic chemicals that can off-gas into interior quarters. It’s cheaper than other materials and used abundantly.

Inexpensive hemp can be made into various different building materials, hempcrete, fiberboard, carpet, stucco, cement blocks, insulation, and plastic. Those materials are stronger and much longer lasting than what’s being used currently. They are also mold and rot free and more fire resistant. And they are environmentally and ecologically friendly and non-toxic.

More Trees for Tree Huggers

Pulp from trees is used to make paper. But anything wood pulp can do, hemp fibers can do better. It’s said that the original Constitution and Bill of Rights were on hemp paper.

Paper from trees can be recycled maybe three times. Hemp paper can be recycled eight times. Since hemp was effectively banned in the USA since 1937, 70% of the USA’s forests have been eliminated. It takes years for trees to grow. Hemp can be gown and harvested within six months.

It’s estimated that one acre of hemp produces more oxygen from CO2 and methane than 25 acres of forest. One idea presented by hemp advocates is to have inner city hemp plots to improve urban air quality. We wouldn’t need bogus carbon tax legislation.

Pulping trees for paper creates more waste, pollution, and consumes more energy than most enterprises. This industry consumes more water than almost all others. It is the fifth largest industry consumer of energy, and it emits a good deal of toxicity in the process.

“Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?” Henry Ford

Anything the petrochemical industry can produce, hemp can do better without toxic synthetic-investmentsenvironmental and human consequences. Deforesting could be a thing of the past if hemp became the major source of construction materials and paper. Heavily pesticide and herbicide sprayed or GMO cotton wouldn’t be necessary, nor would toxic synthetic fibers.

Amazing how such an easily cultivated plant with so many beneficial applications has been so efficiently suppressed by the one or two percent for their purposes while too many among the 98% agreed with that suppression.

Anti-Geoengineering Legal Alliance Files US 60 Day Notice Of Legal Action


Dane Wigington

For over a year and a group of very dedicated attorneys has diligently and consistently worked on formulating a plan of legal action to effectively expose and halt the ongoing global climate engineering assault against our planet. Our team, the Legal Alliance To Stop Geoengineering, is comprised of attorneys and experts that are completely committed to the most critical cause of stopping global geoengineering. The increase in public awareness that will result from this legal effort is crucial. Public support of this effort is essential in order for the legal team to continue moving forward in this this critical battle.

Click the icon image below to go directly to the legal action LASG website


The commencement of this plan is now underway with the notices of pending legal action already being sent out by certified mail to ALL the potential defendants named on the “60 day notice”. This very carefully crafted and very extensive document should be thoroughly examined by all, it is the core point of this entire post. This document/legal notice (including plaintiffs) can be reviewed by clicking the PDF icon image below.


The global climate engineering assault against planet Earth, it’s climate systems, and all life forms, is the most urgent untold story in human history. How can such blatantly obvious atrocities continue to be hidden in plain sight? 12

These unimaginably massive and destructive geoengineering/solar radiation management experiments have been fully deployed and perpetually expanding for over 70 years. The atmospheric spraying of toxic heavy metals and chemical elements (that are related to climate engineering programs) have been carried out by our government (and other nations around the globe) without the knowledge or consent of their populations. Those who control the weather, control the people, and in the process, the life support systems of our planet are being systematically torn apart.  Below is a statement about the “60 day legal notice” from LASG attorney, James Grant:

In coordination with GeoengineeringWatch.Org, the Legal Alliance to Stop Geoengineering (LASG), a cross-borders group of like-minded attorneys and their litigation team, are in the process of serving the attached “60-Day Notice” on the US government, including the Department of Defense and Environmental Protection Agency, as well as certain state, county and local regulatory agencies and entities in California, that LASG will soon file a citizens lawsuit in California federal court for declaratory and injunctive relief to expose and enjoin the toxic aerosol discharge programs being conducted by certain “Violators” without scrutiny by certain “Delinquent Regulators” (both prospective defendant groups are identified in the Notice) at high elevation over California and beyond in the dubious and unlawful effort to address/combat climate change and otherwise modify/engineer the weather.

In this time of disclosure, the citizens of this nation – indeed, of this planet – deserve to know the nature and extent of the aerosol discharge programs (“Programs”) occurring in the skies over California and its waters (both coastal and inland), as well as across the country and beyond our borders. These Programs are now sometimes referred to as “solar radiation management”, “stratospheric aerosol geoengineering”, and/or “stratospheric aerosol injection” programs. Such Programs are being conducted by various entities, including the US military, its contractors and affiliates, without regulatory agency scrutiny or public debate. Beyond the fictional defense that “it’s not happening” and the artificial clouds that are “just persistent contrails” from commercial aircraft (often in crisscross patterns that defy any notion of rational air traffic control and that feather out into a milky haze), the actual Programs are releasing nano-particulates of toxic materials, including but not limited to aluminum oxide, barium and strontium, into the atmosphere at high levels in the dubious and unlawful effort to impact the climate or for other reasons unknown. Based on the law of gravity, such toxic and tortious dispersions are coming down to ground-level waters, and contaminating our air, soil and water. The resulting devastation and damage to our environment and human health are widespread.

There is no “pharmaceutical fix” to climate change and global warming. As Albert Einstein said: “We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.” We deserve answers from the groups releasing toxic chemicals over our heads through the Programs, as well as from those who have turned a blind eye to them, in violation of our environmental and human rights laws. President Abraham Lincoln said: “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.”

The Programs are occurring without legal permits, scientific justification (sound or otherwise) or public comment or debate. While such programs violate a broad spectrum of state and federal environmental and other laws, rules and regulations, LASG’s 60-Day Notice to the “Violators” and “Delinquent Regulators” and prospective federal lawsuit focus on violations of the federal Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Water Act arising out of the contamination of the California water supply in Shasta, Placer, Siskiyou and Santa Cruz Counties, including the Sacramento Delta, which impacts the majority of California’s drinking water supply. Such violations impose strict liability on the parties involved in the non-permitted Programs, as well as mandatory obligations on the municipalities and regulatory agencies authorized to prevent such Programs.

We will post periodic updates on any response by the prospective defendants to the 60-Day Notice, as well as LASG’s filing of a citizens’ lawsuit to expose and enjoin the unlawful Programs. We anticipate the upcoming action will be heavily litigated because the stakes are high. If you wish to support our effort, please visit our website and contribute what you can. We are doing this for all of us who inhabit this beautiful planet and have a responsibility to protect it now and for the future. 10

The threat posed by our now imploding climate system and environment is unimaginably grave and immediate. All available data makes clear that global climate engineering programs are making an already catastrophic climate collapse far worse overall. What we collectively face is nothing short of an immediate existential threat. SRM programs are fueling ozone layer destruction and a complete disruption of the Earth’s hydrological cycle. Chemically ice nucleated large scale surface cool-downs are also a major component of the climate engineering onslaught. From massive government documents, to extensive lists of climate engineering patents, to up-close irrefutable film footage of jet aircraft spraying, to satellite images of cloud formations that are inarguably engineered, the ongoing weather warfare cannot be rationally denied. 11

Governments around the globe are involved with the covert climate engineering insanity, we are at an unimaginably dire time in human history. The effort to stop climate engineering should be, must be, the most catalyzing and urgent issue for the whole of the human race. The Legal Alliance To Stop Geoengineering team has worked tirelessly on this most critical issue in order to credibly move the ball forward in this must win battle. Public support and funding for LASG is absolutely essential for this work to continue ( LASG is a NON-PROFIT entity, all contributions are 100% tax deductible). Please help us to legally expose the covert climate engineering assault, and bring it to a halt.

Firefighters Dig Until Dawn to Rescue Underground Dog

Could it be that when you name a dog “Tiger” you can expect him to be especially territorial? Well, perhaps that’s why this dog in Gulfport, Miss., decided to race down the street in pursuit of a neighborhood cat. Only problem is, there’s something just as dangerous as quicksand in the concrete “jungle” and it swallowed poor Tiger just as quickly.

Tiger fell deep into a concrete culvert pipe near the intersection of Mississippi Avenue and Tyler Street around 9 p.m. one evening, and it wasn’t until residents exhausted their own resources that they decided to call for help at around 3 a.m. the next morning.

Gulfport Fire Department Battalion Chief Chris Henderson, along with seven other firefighters and a pair of workers from the public works department, began working together to extricate the dog.

It was a tedious rescue because the pipe was far too narrow for any rescue worker to fit through, so the team had to cut their way through the pipe.

“We counted the joints in the pipe to estimate the distance, then walked off the distance on the top above the ground,” Henderson told the local ABC News affiliate.

The firefighters dug down and then drilled holes to locate Tiger before bringing in a concrete saw to cut through the pipe and reach him.

By 7 a.m. Tiger was pulled to safety and reunited with his guardian who planned to take him to the veterinarian as a precautionary measure although the dog appeared unharmed.
