Congo Hydroelectric May-be's

Posted Thu, 23 May 2013 09:12:38 GMT by Paul Robinson

The Congo is one of the truly great rivers, but it is remarkable in that it can be navigated throughout, up to the Livingstone Falls and the hydro-electric possibilities will be opened up without undue disturbance. That is, if they are opened up?

The Americans are anxious for more oil and the Canadians are developing shale oil fields in Alberta. The Keystone Project proposes to transport this oil by pipeline from Alberta to the Gulf of Mexico. While many groups oppose these proposals, other groups are equally in favour, but it is a situation where there will be no true winners.

Long absent from the front pages, Fukushima is a nuclear disaster that's far from over. With yesterday's reports of increased radioactivity in fish, and space running low for storing contaminated cooling waters, it seems the disaster is only on pause. All it will take is another earthquake for the play button to be hit again.
