The State Of West Virginia, USA - Unravel Travel TV
 
01:18
The scenic rural state of West Virginia with its abundance of natural resources provides a perfect backdrop for a true American adventure holiday. Driving tours lead to quaint B&Bs and renowned warm hospitality, breathtaking landscapes carve routes for mountain biking, motorbike journeys and RVs exploring state parks. The camouflaged tracks of the many hiking trails and fishing areas display the natural beauty while championship golf courses, ski runs and white water rafting offer seasonal sporting activities. Offering unique Appalachian culture, John Denver's ballad adequately describes its state's country roads, dramatic scenery at every turn and the spectacular kaleidoscope of colour in the Autumn. It is a state which is 80% forested, with 7 state forests, 36 state parks and 200,000 acres of protected woodland parks interlaced by 2,000 miles of rivers and streams. Accommodation ranges from log cabins, motels, guest houses to the historical Greenbrier Resort, favoured by Presidents. West Virginia boasts seven wonders of the natural world, from beaches, waterfalls, high plains plateau to river and mountain trails, rock formations and gorges. There are several lake beaches offering swimming and boating in lush green settings. The 2,700-acre Summersville Lake and 1,500-acre Sutton Lake are great for mountain biking and hiking trails. Walkers can follow the "Gentle Trail" at Blackwater Falls State Park for a great view of the state's largest waterfall at 63-feet and one of its most photographed spots. Named for its amber-coloured water, the falls spill into the Blackwater Canyon and great for hiking and biking. The New River Gorge is the perfect landscape for rafting, rock climbing, hiking and mountain biking along one of the world's oldest and scenic white water rivers. The second-tallest bridge, the New River Gorge Bridge is close by. A visit here can be elevated by taking a walk on this 876-foot-highNew River Gorge Bridge catwalk for stunning views of the gorge from one of the top ten steel structures in the world. Dolly Sods is a 4,000-foot high plains plateau in the Monongahela National Forest. Here blueberries and huckleberries can be picked and where mountain laurel and other flora bloom. Hike or ride horses along the trails near West Virginia's highest point, Spruce Knob. From its observation tower at 4,863feet, there are great views. Walk the moderate Seneca Rocks Trail up to the summit for amazing scenery atop the 900foot rock formation overlooking the confluence of Seneca Creek and the North Fork South Branch Potomac River. The Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area offers world-class climbing, mountain biking and hiking. Or for a more relaxed pass-time, there's fishing for bass or trout at one of the state's many fishing hot spots: Williams River, Cranberry River, Cherry River, Cheat River, Birch River and Beech Fork Lake. West Virginia is convenient to reach from Washington Dulles Airport, being just over one hour's drive to its eastern panhandle where Harpers Ferry National Historical Park is located, the heart of civil war history in this state, when back in1863, West Virginia became the 35th State in the Union, the only state born out of the Civil War and today celebrates its culture, beauty and independence.

US Mines & Mineral Resources: "United States: A Ten Talent Nation" 1922 American Motion Picture
 
13:24
Geology & Earth Sciences playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL33B1A9216BB65F7A more at http://scitech.quickfound.net Good overview of mining and mineral resources in the US as of 1922, with many nice film clips and lots of statistics. Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound. Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, or reef, which forms the mineralized package of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal and oil shale, gemstones, limestone, and dimension stone, rock salt and potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extraction of any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, or even water. Mining of stone and metal has been done since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials, and final reclamation of the land after the mine is closed. The nature of mining processes creates a potential negative impact on the environment both during the mining operations and for years after the mine is closed. This impact has led to most of the world's nations adopting regulations to moderate the negative effects of mining operations. Safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have improved safety in mines significantly... Mining in the United States became prevalent in the 19th century, and the General Mining Act of 1872 was passed to encourage mining of federal lands. As with the California Gold Rush in the mid 19th century, mining for minerals and precious metals, along with ranching, was a driving factor in the Westward Expansion to the Pacific coast. With the exploration of the West, mining camps were established and "expressed a distinctive spirit, an enduring legacy to the new nation;" Gold Rushers would experience the same problems as the Land Rushers of the transient West that preceded them. Aided by railroads, many traveled West for work opportunities in mining. Western cities such as Denver and Sacramento originated as mining towns. As new areas were explored, it was usually the gold (placer and then load) and then silver that were taken first, with other metals often waiting for railroads or canals. Coarse gold dust and nuggets do not require smelting, is easy to identify and is easily transported. Modern period In the early 20th century, the gold and silver rush to the western United States also stimulated mining for base metals such as copper, lead, and iron as well as coal. Areas in modern Montana, Utah, Arizona, and later Alaska became predominate suppliers of copper to the world, which was increasingly demanding copper for electrical and households goods. Canada's mining industry grew more slowly than the United States due to limitations in transportation, capital, and U.S. competition; Ontario was the major producer of the early 20th century with nickel, copper, and gold. Meanwhile, Australia experienced the Australian gold rushes and by the 1850s was producing 40% of the world's gold, followed by the establishment of large mines such as the Mount Morgan Mine, which ran for nearly a hundred years, Broken Hill ore deposit (one of the largest zinc-lead ore deposits), and iron ore mines at Iron Knob. After declines in production, another boom in mining occurred in the 1960s and in the 21st century Australia remains a major world mineral producer. Into the 21st century, a globalized mining industry of large multinational corporations has arisen. Peak minerals and environmental impacts have also become a concern. Different elements, particularly rare earth minerals, have begun to increase in demand as a result of new technologies...

The Utilization of Western NGOs for the Theft of Africa's Vast Resources
 
04:23
The following in an excerpt from a lecture given by Mallence Bart Williams in 2015 (TEDxBerlin). "One thing that keeps me puzzled, despite having studied finance and economics at the world’s best universities, the following question remains unanswered. Why is it that 5,000 units of our currency is worth one unit of your currency where we are the ones with the actual gold reserves? It’s quite evident that the aid is in fact not coming from the West to Africa but from Africa to the Western world. The Western world depends on Africa in every possible way since alternative resources are scarce out here. So how does the West ensure that the free aid keeps coming? By systematically destabilizing the wealthiest African nations and their systems, and all that backed by huge PR campaigns -- leaving the entire world under the impression that Africa is poor and dying and merely surviving on the mercy of the West. Well done Oxfam, UNICEF, Red Cross, Live Aid, and all the other organizations that continuously run multi-million-dollar advertisement campaigns depicting charity porn to sustain that image of Africa globally. Ad campaigns paid for by innocent people under the impression to help, with their donations. While one hand gives under the flashing lights of cameras, the other takes in the shadows. We all know the dollar is worthless, while the Euro is merely charged with German intellect and technology and maybe some Italian pasta. How can one expect donations from nations that have so little? How super sweet of you to come with your colored paper in exchange for our gold and diamonds. But instead you should come empty-handed, filled with integrity and honor. I want to share with you our wealth and invite you to share with us. The perception is that a healthy and striving Africa would not disperse its resources as freely and cheaply, which is logical. Of course, it would instead sell its resources at world market prices, which in turn would destabilize and weaken Western economies established on the post-colonial free-meal system. Last year the IMF reports that six out of 10 of the world's fastest-growing economies are in Africa, measured by their GDP growth. The French Treasury, for example, is receiving about 500 billion dollars year in year out, in foreign exchange reserves from African countries based on Colonial Debt they force them to pay. Former French President Jacques Chirac stated in an interview recently that we have to be honest and acknowledge that a big part of the money in our banks comes precisely from the exploitation of the African continent. In 2008 he stated that without Africa, France will slide down in the rank of a third-world power. This is what happens in the human world. The world we have created. Have you ever wondered how things work in nature? One would assume that in evolution, the fittest survives. However in nature any species that is overhunting, over-exploiting the resources they depend on as nourishment, natural selection would sooner or later take the predator out, because it upsets the balance."

Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oregon Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Oregon... is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located on the Pacific coast, with Washington to the north, California to the south, Nevada on the southeast and Idaho to the east. The Columbia and Snake rivers delineate much of Oregon's northern and eastern boundaries, respectively. The area was inhabited by many indigenous tribes before the arrival of traders, explorers, and settlers who formed an autonomous government in Oregon Country in 1843. The Oregon Territory was created in 1848, and Oregon became the 33rd state on February 14, 1859. Oregon is the 9th most expansive and the 27th most populous of the 50 United States. Salem is the state's capital and third-most-populous city; Portland is the most populous. Portland is the 28th-largest U.S. city, with a population of 603,106 (2012 estimate) and a metro population of 2,262,605 (2011 estimate), the 23rd-largest U.S. metro area. The valley of the Willamette River in western Oregon is the state's most densely populated area and is home to eight of the ten most populous cities. Oregon contains a diverse landscape including the windswept Pacific coastline, the volcanoes of the rugged and glaciated Cascade Mountain Range, many waterfalls (including Multnomah Falls), dense evergreen forests, mixed forests and deciduous forests at lower elevations, and high desert across much of the eastern portion of the state, extending into the Great Basin. The tall Douglas firs and redwoods along the rainy Western Oregon coast contrast with the lower density and fire-prone pine tree and juniper forests covering portions of the eastern half of the state. Alder trees are common in the west and fix nitrogen for the conifers; aspen groves are common in eastern Oregon. Stretching east from Central Oregon, the state also includes semi-arid shrublands, prairies, deserts, steppes, and meadows. Mount Hood is the highest point in the state at 11,249 feet (3,429 m). Crater Lake National Park is the only national park in Oregon... Tourism Tourism is also a strong industry in the state. Oregon's mountains, forests, waterfalls, lakes (including Crater Lake National Park), and beaches draw visitors year round. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival, held in Ashland, is a tourist draw for Southern Oregon. Oregon is home to many breweries and Portland has the largest number of breweries of any city in the world. Oregon occasionally hosts film shoots. Movies filmed in Oregon include: Animal House, Free Willy, The General, The Goonies, Kindergarten Cop, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and Stand By Me... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oregon_Parks_and_Recreation_Department The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD), officially known (in state law) as the State Parks and Recreation Department, is the government agency of the U.S. state of Oregon which operates its system of state parks.... The department was created in 1921 as a branch of the Oregon Highway Department (predecessor to the present-day Oregon Department of Transportation). The 1989 Oregon Legislative Assembly transferred authority to a newly created department under its current name effective January 1, 1990. Oregon parks attract more than 42 million visitors annually, ranking fifth in the U.S. in number of day-use park visitors, and eighth in number of overnight visitors. 7.5 percent of lottery revenues in Oregon are dedicated to state and local parks, leading to new park acquisitions and a reduced backlog of maintenance at existing parks. Nevertheless, Oregon ranks 30th in the nation in state park acreage per 1,000 people. At the same time it ranks second nationally for the number of park visitors per acre, indicating that the state's limited area of parks are intensively used.

Fragile States, Better Security and Management of Natural Resources | Paul Collier | TEDxOxford
 
19:23
While people in many developing countries are beginning to reduce gap with the West, people in fragile states are not. One reason is a lack of security. In countries like Mali and the CAR, only last-minute French intervention stabilised extremely dangerous situations, while the US Rapid Reaction Force sat in Stuttgart. We must end flip-flops of policy over intervention. Europe should take a long-term and consistent approach to building African capacity to intervene before security crises get out of hand. Natural resource extraction often fails to benefit the country with the resources. Resource extraction companies should be seen as custodians (much like banks). Key steps needed are: more transparency, on which there is some progress; more effective taxation, requiring better international rules and provision of qualified staff; and stronger action on corruption through making it harder to hide payments – including an international standard on public disclosure of beneficial ownership. Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government and a Professorial Fellow of St Antony’s College. He took Public Service leave when he was Director of the Research Development Department of the World Bank. Currently a Professeur invité at Sciences Po and a Director of the International Growth Centre. His research covers the causes and consequences of civil war; the effects of aid and problems of democracy in low-income and natural resources rich societies; urbanization in low-income countries; private investment in African infrastructure and changing organizational cultures. Books include The Bottom Billion (2007) which in 2008 won the Lionel Gelber, Arthur Ross and Corine prizes and in 2009 was joint winner of the Estoril Global Issues Distinguished Book prize. His latest book is Exodus: How migration is changing our world (2013) In 2014, Paul received a knighthood for promoting research and policy change in Africa.

THE WILD AMERICAN WEST IN PICTURES 1860'S
 
07:56
In the 1860s and 70s, photographer Timothy O'Sullivan created some of the best-known images in American History. After covering the U.S. Civil War, (many of his photos appear in this earlier series), O'Sullivan joined a number of expeditions organized by the federal government to help document the new frontiers in the American West. The teams were composed of soldiers, scientists, artists, and photographers, and tasked with discovering the best ways to take advantage of the region's untapped natural resources. O'Sullivan brought an amazing eye and work ethic, composing photographs that evoked the vastness of the West. He also documented the Native American population as well as the pioneers who were already altering the landscape. Above all, O'Sullivan captured -- for the first time on film -- the natural beauty of the American West in a way that would later influence Ansel Adams and thousands more photographers to come.

Why Isn't Congo as Rich as Saudi Arabia? Massive Tax Evasion
 
04:38
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is rich in natural resources, yet the average citizen lives on only 72 cents a day. The foreign mining companies are getting rich while the general population is living in poverty. Many Congolese citizens are diging through the dirt on their hands and knees in search their fair share of the countries natural minerals. While there are taxes on the mining companies who benefit from the countries resources it is proving difficult to actually collect the money that is owed. Vocativ spoke to one tax inspector who explained that tax evasion and government fraud is rampant throughout the mining industry. So it seems that until those benefiting from the countries natural wealth start paying their fare share, many average citizens will have to continue digging through the mud to get by.

Market Empire: The U.S., the Philippines & Natural Resource Management
 
44:37
The importation of tropical products from the Caribbean and the Pacific accompanied the growth of American industrial development in the early twentieth century. While the new demand for tropical fruits, woods, and products dramatically altered tropical ecosystems and contributed to food shortages in what is today called the "global south," it also encouraged the development of an ethic of natural resource management and conservation. By focusing on the work of American agricultural scientists, foresters, and chemists during the U.S. occupation of the Philippines (1898-1936), Theresa Ventura shows how science was integral to the emergence of the United States as a world power; the influence of Philippine knowledge on environmental and nutritional knowledge; and the often devastating impact of conservation and land management programs on indigenous communities. Speaker Biography: Theresa Ventura is an assistant professor of history at Concordia University in Montreal.

The term tree farm is also used to refer to plantations and to tree nurseries... American Tree Farm System The American Tree Farm System (ATFS) is the largest and oldest woodland certification system in America. It is internationally recognized by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification and meets strict third-party certification standards. It is one of three certification systems currently recognized in the United States (the others include the Forest Stewardship Council and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative). ATFS specializes in certifying private forests, primarily those held by individuals and families and currently certifies over 26 million acres (110,000 km²) of forestland. The ATFS Standard for Certification is owned by the American Forest Foundation, a national nonprofit organization focused on environmental education and promoting sustainable stewardship of America's woodlands. History The American Tree Farm System was established in 1941 in an effort to promote forest resources on private land, ensuring plentiful fiber production for timber and paper companies. With declining virgin saw timber available, the industry began to promote forestry practices to ensure sufficient fiber production for the future. Prior to 1941, the majority of fiber came from industrial lands. The first tract of land labeled as a Tree Farm was organized and marketed by Weyerhauser Company to help change public attitudes toward timber production and protect natural resources from fire damage. The title of "tree farm" was chosen in large part because Weyehauser Company felt that the 1940s public understood farming as crop production, and similarly tree farming was focused on producing more timber, with frequent replanting post-harvest. The early sponsors of the tree-farming movement defined it as "privately owned forest-land dedicated to the growing of forest crops for commercial purposes, protected and managed for continuous production of forest products." In the early 1940s the concept of "tree-farming" on private land was promoted by the National Lumber Manufacturers Association in an organized campaign to engage timberland owners in conservative timber production. Throughout its history, ATFS has relied on celebrity Tree Farmers to relay its message to the public. Celebrities include actor Andy Griffith, actress Andie MacDowell, former President Jimmy Carter, and Rolling Stone keyboardist Chuck Leavell. Current Since 1941, the system has shifted to focus on whole stewardship, rather than strictly fiber production. According to the Standards of Certification for ATFS, woodland owners must own 10 or more acres and have a management plan. In that management plan, woodland owners must recognize wildlife habitat, protection of water quality, threatened and endangered species, and sustainable harvest levels. The certification standard is subject to multi-stakeholder involvement in the development and revision of the standard, third-party audits, and a publicly available certification of audit summaries. As a program of the American Forest Foundation (AFF), the American Tree Farm System focuses on the long-term sustainability of America's forests in ecological and economic terms...

Sideling Hill Maryland 360
 
02:23
The State of Maryland in the United States, has wonderful natural resources including the Chesapeake Bay and beautiful mountains to the west. Trucking travel was often fatal once a large truck got to the top of the prior mountain path in Hancock on Route 40 which had a 90 turn at the top. It was necessary to slice into the mountain with a new highway I68 to cut down on the immense death toll highway 40 presented.. Dynamite was used to blown apart a path through the mountain (called Sideling Hill) and now motorists and truckers enjoy traveling with less risk of death but in doing so, the layers of some 100 million years of Earths history are revealed in the sides of the remaining hillside. In this 360 video, the Phantom 3 drone can also be seen as it fights the wind currents which go through that slit in the mountain as the video is being captured. It was tricky taking the video as traffic goes through this area at 70+ MPH.

06 09 15 FRA "ITS AN OVER SUPPLY PROBLEM!" - JAYANT BHANDARI
 
21:03
SPECIAL GUEST: JAYANT BHANDARI is constantly traveling the world looking for investment opportunities, particularly in the natural resource sector. He advises institutional investors about his finds. Earlier, he worked for six years with US Global Investors (San Antonio, Texas), a boutique natural resource investment firm, and for one year with Casey Research. Before emigrating from India, he started and ran Indian subsidiary operations of two European companies. He still travels multiple times a year to India. He is an MBA from Manchester Business School (UK) and B. Engineering from SGSITS (India). He has written on political, economic and cultural issues for the Liberty magazine, the Mises Institute (USA), Mises Institute (Canada), Casey Research, International Man, Mining Journal, Zero Hedge, Lew Rockwell, the Dollar Vigilante, Fraser Institute, Le Québécois Libre, Mauldin Economics, Northern Miner, Mining Markets etc. He is a contributing editor of the Liberty magazine. He runs a yearly seminar in Vancouver titled Capitalism & Morality. GLOBAL MINING ANALYST JAYANT BHANDARI "ITS AN OVER SUPPLY PROBLEM!" FINANCIAL REPRESSION "There are two parts of the world in my opinion. One is the western developed civilization and the other is the non-western civilization. The western civilization was primarily based on reason and respect for the individual. This has considerably deteriorated over the last few decades. Increasingly the coming of the police state in particularly the USA. In the West-European part of the western civilization the regulatory controls have become particularly horrendous as well. The welfare system of these economies is deteriorating these societies now. Culturally the western civilizations are increasingly on a slippery slope." "The non Western civilizations have adopted the consumerism and wealth creating mechanism of the western civilizations, but I am not sure they have really adopted these things properly! Democracy has not done well in these countries. As a result consumerism is making these countries very unstable. The only countries I feel relatively positive about right now are China and some of the smaller countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Mauritius - these countries are doing very well." HARD ASSETS & NATURAL RESOURCES The problem is with the investors who have over-funded mining. They shouldn't have ramped up mining as much as has been done! 'The places to invest are places like Canada, Scandinavia, Australia and parts of South America. You need consistency in the political climate. You want the stability for people to invest billions of dollars in these countries." "I don't think global demand has fallen. If you look at Iron Ore the world is using three times more Iron Ore. The world requires three times more Iron Ore than it used to 10-15 years ago. What is changed is that we have started to supply more commodities than the world demand is there for it. The problem is with the investors who have overfunded mining. They shouldn't have ramped up mining as much as has been done! PERVASIVE GLOBAL OVER-REGULATION "Global western economies are stagnating and this is a direct result of over regulating business in those countries." "Businesses are suffocating in the west now. There is pretty much zero growth. You need to understand the off balance sheet liabilities these businesses have, and continue to increase. They have benefited from technological evolution and the low hanging fruit over the last twenty years." This has now changed. The US$ shows that though the US is deteriorating according to Jayant Bhandari "it is deteriorating slower than the rest of the world!" "Economic repression is a fact of the day everywhere in the world" Where growth is happening it is because of increasing consumerism and this is not good for the future because growth should be happening as a result of the increase in supply of products - which would mean we should be saving more - which would mean we should be producing more than we are consuming!" INCREASINGLY BULLISH ABOUT GOLD "I have never been too bullish about gold but increasingly I am very bullish about gold. The reason is a lot of people misunderstand why Indians buy gold. The reason Indians and Chinese buy so much gold is that for example in India the yield on investment is negative. It pays them to invest in something that gives them positive real yield. In my view India is going to increase its consumption of gold and the Chinese will keep doing it." "Once the US$ becomes too over-valued people will begin putting their money in precious metals!" .... and much more in the video interview. Listen to the whole interview.

Garamendi Testified before Natural Resources Committee on Offshore Oil Drilling
 
04:36
On May 27, 2010, Congressman John Garamendi (D-CA10) testified before the House Natural Resources Committee on the need to reduce our nation's reliance on offshore oil drilling. Garamendi is the author of the West Coast Ocean Protection Act of 2010, which would ban all new offshore oil and natural gas leases in federal waters on the West Coast. A transcript of Garamendi's remarks are below: Mr. Chairman and members of the Committee, thank you very much for this extraordinary privilege of addressing you at this moment when we are in the midst of a crisis on the Gulf Coast. The purpose of my attendance here and participation in this is to say Murphy was right with his law, 'What can go wrong will go wrong.' We've seen plenty of that in the past, in the Gulf over the last 15 to 20 years, we've seen some 38 blowouts. In California, and this brings me to my point, we saw a massive blowout in 1969 in the Santa Barbara channel that led to a moratorium on the West Coast in state waters for the last 43 years. As the Lieutenant Governor of the State of California last year, I led the fight to stop new oil leasing in California waters. In my previous work as the Deputy Secretary of the Department of the Interior in the 1990s, we made a major effort to stop new leases off the West Coast and persuaded with very little trouble President Clinton to continue the Presidential moratorium on the West Coast. We need a law, and as you ponder and listen to the reports from the oil companies as to what's happening today, and what did happen and cause the blowout, I would like you to keep in mind that stuff happens, really bad stuff happens. And we've seen that on the Gulf Coast. It will happen again. Despite every effort, accidents do occur. And when those accidents occur, should it be from a drilling platform on the West Coast when a blowout occurs, we're talking about a major problem. Environmental to be sure, and economic. In California, it is calculated that the coast environment of California provides the state $22 billion in annual economic activity and employs 369,000 people. In Oregon it's over $1 billion annually and some 17,000 are employed. In Washington, 150,000 people and over $8 billion. We value that economic activity as much as we value the precious coastline, the fishing, and the other opportunities it presents to us. No more oil. We can drill baby drill but we can also count on spill baby spill. And that's happened. Not just this one incident, as horrible as it is in the Gulf Coast, but it's happened over and over throughout the world. A huge blowout on the West Coast of Australia lost year took months to contain. And here we are once again. It's time for a permanent law. That's why my bill, H.R. 5213, the West Coast Ocean Protection Act deserves your attention and deserves your pondering as you listen to the testimony of the oil industry today. I would ask you to consider the other legislation that has been proposed by our colleagues here in the House. A permanent protection in the East Coast, in law, not just depending on the President but rather depending on the laws of this nation. And also an expansion of protections on the West Coast of Florida. These are important. It is important for this nation to end its addiction to oil. As long as we drill, as long as we open our coastlines to drilling, we will continue our addiction, just as surely as a junkie on the street will find the next pusher. It's time for us to say enough and to spend those vast amounts of money that are employed in the drilling industry, to spend that money on renewable energies of all kinds. Solar, wind, geothermal, nuclear, all of those things must be our future. It's our opportunity today to push the junkie aside and to end our addiction, and the legislation that I'm proposing and that my colleagues are proposing set us on that course. Mr. Chairman I thank you, I look forward to working with this committee, I thank you for the work of the members of the committee and what you have managed to do, and I join you in attentive listening to the next witnesses.

Plundering of natural resources: aggregates from Yatir Quarry of Cemex in the West Bank into Israel

English follow by Hebrew It is not a secret that among other crimes of occupation, the state of Israel allows and plundering itself natural resources from Palestine. On 16th of May 2011 we went to document plundering of building materials that were quarried in Yatir Quarry, that is located in the West Bank. The materials are transferred through "Meitar Checkpoint" on the Green Line, into Israel. at the short time that we were there, we saw many trucks that were loaded in Yatir Quarry making their way into Israel. One of the truck drivers that was interested in the purpose of the filming, told us that for many years trucks use to transfer quarry building materials that were quarried in the occupied territories, into Israel. לא סוד הוא שבין יתר פשעי הכיבוש, מאפשרת מדינת ישראל ושודדת בעצמה מאוצרות הטבע של פלסטין. ב-16 למאי 2011 יצאנו לתעד גניבת חומרי בניין ואבן הנכרים ב"מחצבת יתיר" הנמצאת בגדה המערבית. החומרים מועברים דרך "מעבר מיתר" למדינת ישראל. בזמן הקצר בו שהינו במקום ראינו משאיות רבות המועמסות במחצבת יתיר, עושות דרכן לתוך ישראל. אחד מנהגי המשאיות שהתעניין לפשר הצילום, ציין באוזנינו, כי זה שנים רבות שמשאיות מעבירות חומרי בניה מחצבת יתיר וממחצבות נוספות הנמצאות בשטחים הכבושים לתוך מדינת ישראל.

Venezuela
 
03:01
When the first explorers arrived, they saw houses over the Sinamaica lagoon (Zulia State), close to Maracaibo; those houses reminded them of the city of Venice. They called the region "Little Venice", which in Spanish would be Venezuela.Venezuela is the most accessible of the South American countries. With cheap flights from both Europe and the USA and an excellent road network, the incredible diversity of the Venezuelan landscape is well within the reach of most travelers. Close to 90 percent of the population lives in the northern part of the country, while the rest of the land features great tracts of wilderness and maintains to explore; there is something for everyone. Venezuela has a diverse geography: beaches, plains, and mountains. The weather also varies very much from one place to another. Venezuela has wonderful beaches (playas), especially at the east (Playa Colorada), in the islands (Margarita, Coche) and in the central-west region (Morrocoy, Cata, and Choroní). In the Caribbean, north of Caracas, is located the Archipielago of Los Roques with its white sand beaches and its crystalline waters. One of the interesting regions in Venezuela is the Gran Sabana. Located in the southeast - Bolivar State - this region has flat top mountains called "Tepuy". "Angel" Falls (3000 ft), the highest cataracts in the world, are located here. Bolivar Peak is the highest point in Venezuela (5002 meters). A cable car can take you, in one hour, from the city of Merida to the "Pico Espejo". Venezuela has also deserts and dunes. One of the most interesting trips you can make is to the Coro Dunes (Medanos de Coro). Next to the highway from Coro to Punto Fijo you can slide from the top of these sand hills. Venezuela's cities are full of life. Caracas, the capital, with more than 4 million inhabitants, is the political and economic center of the country. In the west are located Maracaibo (the oil capital), Barquisimeto (the city of the sunsets), Mérida (tourist and student centers), San Cristobal, Valencia, and Maracay. In the east: Maturín (challenging Maracaibo´s oil leadership), Puerto La Cruz (tourist center). To the South are located Ciudad Bolívar and Ciudad Guayana (steel center). Venezuela has a rich and varied fauna. Its tropical birds (Toucans, flamingos, guacamayas); mammalians, reptiles (crocodiles or snakes), and fishes (attention snorkeling lovers) delight nature lovers. Venezuela is a country with many natural resources. In addition to oil, the major resource in Venezuela, there is gold, bauxite, iron, coal, hydroelectric resources, and others.

The city is also the headquarters for Virgin Galactic, the world's first company to offer sub-orbital spaceflights... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_Grande The Rio Grande (/ˈriːoʊ ˈɡrænd/ or /ˈriːoʊ ˈɡrɑːndeɪ/; Spanish: Río Bravo del Norte, pronounced: [ˈri.o ˈβɾaβo ðel ˈnorte] or simply Río Bravo) is a river that flows from south central Colorado in the United States to the Gulf of Mexico. Along the way it forms part of the Mexico–United States border. According to the International Boundary and Water Commission, its total length was 1,896 miles (3,051 km) in the late 1980s, though course shifts occasionally result in length changes. Depending on how it is measured, the Rio Grande is the fourth or fifth longest river system in North America. The river serves as a natural border between the U.S. state of Texas and the Mexican states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León, and Tamaulipas. A very short stretch of the river serves as the boundary between the U.S. states of Texas and New Mexico. Since the mid–20th century, heavy water consumption of farms and cities along with many large hydroelectric dams on the river has left only 20 percent of its natural discharge to flow to the Gulf. Near the river's mouth, the heavily irrigated Rio Grande Valley is an important agricultural region. The Rio Grande is one of 19 Great Waters recognized by America's Great Waters Coalition. The Rio Grande's watershed covers 182,200 square miles (472,000 km2). Many endorheic basins are situated within, or adjacent to, the Rio Grande's basin, and these are sometimes included in the river basin's total area, increasing its size to about 336,000 square miles (870,000 km2)...

Trout Fishing West Virginia's Elk River
 
08:22
The greater Elkins area is surrounded by some of the best trout streams in the eastern US. While there’s an endless amount of options when we return to West Virginia trout fishing the Elk River remains high on our list and was the site for this episode of Pautzke Outdoors. Remote, pristine and heavily stocked, the Elk is a must fish for any angler who enjoys trout fishing. The river has large pools, small waterfalls, runs, tailouts and undercut banks and more important, lots of public access. We caught fish on several types of Balls O Fire eggs, but none out-fished the new Natural Deluxe. Gold Label and Pink Shrimp were next in line. The Elk River is stocked with 22,000 pounds of trout from the end of the catch and release section to Webster Springs by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources. That equates to more than 40,000 trout annually over roughly 15 miles of water. Of these fish roughly 90 percent are rainbows and 10 percent golden rainbows. There are brook and brown trout, too, but they are even less numerous. We caught one brook, a golden rainbow and the rest rainbows, all of which were 10-14 inches. Editor’s Note: The Elk River is stocked weekly through May. The day it’s stocked varies.

Could Arctic Resources Ignite a War?
 
17:43
Arctic Cold War (2007): The Arctic's melting ice has opened up the area's vast natural resources to the Arctic powers, which could result in tensions leading to war For downloads and more information visit http://journeyman.tv/57670/short-films/arctic-cold-war.html According to a new report, global warming is likely to trigger a dangerous contest between Russia and the West for the Arctic's vast mineral resources. As the Arctic warms up; "major corporations are waking up to the fact there is going to be tremendous economic opportunity", explains Prof Huebert. Canada, Russia, Denmark and Norway all have claims to the Arctic seabed, where vast mineral reserves are thought to lie. There's concern that this scramble for resources could spiral out of control. "The worst case scenario is one of a regional area where hostilities are the norm and co-operation the exception", warns Huebert.

Blood Oil: tyrants, violence and the rules that run the world
 
01:27:18
Date: Tuesday 1 March 2016 Time: 6.30-8pm Venue: Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House Speaker: Professor Leif Wenar Chair: Dr Margot Salomon Natural resources empower the world's most coercive men. Autocrats like Putin and the Saudis spend oil money on weapons and repression. ISIS and Congo's militias spend resource money on atrocities and ammunition. For decades resource-fueled authoritarians and extremists have forced endless crises on the West - and the ultimate source of their resource money is us, paying at the petrol station and the mall. In this lecture, Leif Wenar will talk about his new book, Blood Oil, which goes behind the headlines in search of the hidden global rule that puts shoppers into business with the men of blood - and discovers an ancient law that once licensed the slave trade, apartheid and genocide. The abolition of this rule marked some of humanity's greatest triumphs - yet the rule zombies on in today's multi-trillion dollar resource trade, enriching tyrants, warlords and terrorists worldwide. By our own deepest principles, over half of the world's traded oil is stolen. Blood Oil shows how the West can lead a peaceful global revolution by finally ending its dependence on authoritarian oil, conflict minerals and other stolen resources. Upgrading world trade will make us more secure at home, more trusted abroad, and better able to solve urgent problems like climate change. Blood Oil shows how citizens, consumers and leaders can act today to avert tomorrow's crises - and to create a more united human future. Leif Wenar (@LeifWenar) is Chair of Philosophy and Law at King's College London. He has been a Visiting Professor at Princeton and Stanford and a Fellow of the Carnegie Council Program in Justice and the World Economy. Margot Salomon is an Associate Professor in the Law Department and the Centre for the Study of Human Rights where she directs the multidisciplinary Laboratory for Advanced Research on the Global Economy (Lab). The Centre for the Study of Human Rights at LSE (@LSEHumanRights) is a trans-disciplinary centre of excellence for international academic research, teaching and critical scholarship on human rights.

History Brief: Roosevelt the Conservationist
 
03:52
This video explains the measures that President Theodore Roosevelt took to preserve America's natural resources. http://readingthroughhistory.com/ Roosevelt the Conservationist Prior to Theodore Roosevelt’s presidency, the federal government did very little to preserve America’s natural resources. The U.S. Forest Service had been established in 1887, and 45 million acres of timberlands had been set aside as a forest reserve, but the development of land in the American West continued on unchecked. How would Roosevelt respond?
