Áine Ryan: 16 July 2013

CONCERNS about sinkholes along the tunnelling route for the last section of the Corrib gas pipeline at Sruwaddacon Estuary have led residents to instal warning signs. They say they were forced to erect the signs, which state ‘Danger Sinkholes: Keep Back’, because neither Mayo County Council nor the Department of Energy and Natural Resources had taken action.
The residents claim the sinkholes began to appear on May 20 and can be up to eight-foot in depth. read more

As Shell was being granted carte blanche for industrial recklessness on ice, new warnings were surfacing from scientists about the fate of the Arctic that couldn’t be any starker. In Nature, ice scientists examined the potentially catastrophic impacts of plausible Arctic thawing and the release of a giant methane bubble under the ice of the East Siberian Arctic Shelf. They concluded that the melt could have “enormous implications” for the global climate and cost the economy trillions of dollars.
