Let's transform energy -- by leaving natural gas in the ground: Jonathan Deal at TEDxStellenbosch
In response to T. Boone Pickens' TED Talk, "Let's tranform energy -- with natural gas", Jonathan Deal questions the promotion of natural gas and shale gas mining as a viable solution to future energy security. He presents the harsh truths of climate change that lay ahead, and the numbers that would make pursuing natural gas simply stupid. With South Africa's fragile Karoo at the brink of being fracked for natural gas, Jonathan calls for citizens to ask their own questions and act on them, as he has. Karoo author, accomplished photographer and freelance journalist, Jonathan has, in his efforts to prevent an ill-considered rush to mine shale gas in South Africa, evolved into a passionate and tireless environmentalist as chair of environmental NGO Treasure Karoo Action Group. Under his leadership, TKAG has established a position as the official opposition to fracking in South Africa, and was recently recognized by Mail & Guardian as the winner of the NPO category in the newspaper's 'Greening the Future' Awards.

The Battle Raging In Nigeria Over Control Of Oil | VICE on HBO
Nigeria may sit atop one of the largest oil reserves in the world, but the majority of the Nigerian people have seen little benefit from the multibillion-dollar industry. The government and global energy companies have been exploiting the resource for years, bringing poverty, pollution, and violence to the Niger Delta. And now the local militias fighting for oil control have made conditions even worse. Caught in the conflict are Nigerian citizens involved in the illegal oil market simply for survival. Oil theft is rampant, and the booming black market has transnational oil and gas consultants concerned about the effects on global oil markets. The government isn't too happy about it either. “All the oil that is sold around here, the government calls illegally refined products,” local oil businessman Don Wizaro told VICE News. And when the Nigerian military raids illegal oil operations, they slash containers, releasing oil into waterways, contaminating what the main source of fishing, agriculture, and drinking water. As the government continues its assault on illegal refineries and barges carrying stolen oil, local militias are retaliating. And one of the most notorious militias is the Niger Delta Avengers. They attack pipelines and infrastructure, significantly affecting both the environment and the economy. VICE correspondent Gianna Toboni heads to the heart of Nigeria's oil production to witness firsthand the fight over the control of oil in the Niger Delta.

Top 10 Biggest Economies in Africa in 2018 by GDP
The richest economies in Africa have been revealed by the World Economic Forum through the data provided by the from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The full annual list, which was published in April 2018, analyses the "identifiable wealth" of all the countries in the world through the current prices of Gross Domestic Product, GDP. As it is known, the GDP is a monetary measure of the market value of all final goods and services produced in a period of time. See the 10 biggest economies in Africa, ranked in ascending order by wealth. 10. Cote d’Ivoire - $48.14 billion Cote d’Ivoire comes 10th with a total of $48.14 billion as the country’s GDP as at April 2018. Ivory Coast is among the world's largest producers and exporters of coffee, cocoa beans, and palm oil. Consequently, the economy is highly sensitive to fluctuations in international prices for these products and to weather conditions. 9. Ghana - $51.62 billion Ghana follows Cote d’Ivoire on the list with $51.62 billion according to the data from International Monetary Fund. Ghana is Africa's second-biggest gold producer and second-largest cocoa producer. It is also rich in diamonds and oil but in recent years, plunging oil prices have precipitated an economic crisis. 8. Tanzania - $56.66 billion Tanzania holds the eight position with a total of $56.66 billion as the country’s GDP. Tanzania is largely dependent on agriculture for employment, accounting for about half of the employed workforce. 7. Ethiopia - $85.66 billion Standing tall at the seventh position with $85.66 billion is Ethiopia. The country leads Tanzania with a total of $26 billion. Ethiopia’s economy is concentrated in the services and agriculture sectors. 6. Kenya - $88.27 billion Kenya holds on to the sixth position with a total GDP of $88.27 billion. The country is generally perceived as Eastern and central Africa's hub for Financial, Communication and Transportation services. 5. Angola - $119.43 billion Angola takes the difference in the country’s GDP to a new level with a total GDP of $119.43 billion. Angola occupies the fifth position on the list. For Angola, Subsistence agriculture provides the main livelihood for 85% of the population. Oil production and the supporting activities are vital to the economy, contributing about 45% to GDP and 90% of exports. 4. Morocco - $121 billion Angola is followed by Morocco which occupies the fourth position on the list with an interesting $121 billion as GDP. In Morocco, sales of fish and seafood join the industrial and mining sectors to contribute about one-third of the annual GDP. Morocco is the world's third-largest producer of phosphates and the price fluctuations of phosphates on the international market greatly influence Morocco's economy. 3. Algeria - $197.63 billion Number three on the list is Algeria with a GDP of $197.63 billion. Though the economy has diversified, the country's economy relies greatly on hydrocarbons (petroleum and natural gas). 2. South Africa - $370.89 billion Distinguishing itself on the table and holding on to the second position is South Africa. The country’s economy is valued with a GDP of $370.89 billion according to the IMF. The country has a mixed type of economy and tourism is one of the biggest revenue generating industries in South Africa. 1. Nigeria - $408.61 billion With a difference of $37.72 billion, Nigeria’s economy ranked the highest with a total GDP of $408.61. Nigeria is a middle-income, mixed economy and emerging market, with expanding manufacturing, financial, service, communications, technology, and entertainment sectors. In recent time, the agriculture and oil sector have contributed to the country’s economy. MUSIC CREDIT Song: Dizaro - YouMakeMe (Vlog No Copyright Music) Music provided by Vlog No Copyright Music.

Fracking in Botswana
Fracking is a highly controversial practise. Although it is an effective method of extracting natural gas, it is also a destructive and disruptive process. Fracking's detrimental effects have already been noticed in areas of long term operation and unfortunately for South Africa, these dangerous practises will soon be coming our way when fracking begins the Karoo. However South Africa is not the only country in Southern African to take this leap into hydraulic fracturing. Botswana has made provisions for shale gas extraction throughout the Kalahari landscape, even in some of the countries beautiful nature reserves. Contamination of ground water is one of the greatest concerns around fracking. Ground water not only an important resource for local communities but for the environment and its wildlife as well.

How natural gas could be a geopolitical game-changer in the Mideast
Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN It's a discovery that could easily shake up the geopolitical order in the Middle East. Deep under the eastern Mediterranean lies the largest natural gas basin ever found on Europe's doorstep. But the gas fields often coincide with disputed borders between rival nations. Our reporter Marine Pradel investigated this lucrative resource, which everyone wants a piece of. The billions of cubic metres of natural gas discovered in recent years off Israel, Egypt and Cyprus form what is now called the "Levantine Basin", the largest natural gas reservoir within easy reach of Europe. The first major deposit, known as Tamar, was discovered in 2009 off the coast of Haifa, Israel, by a consortium made up of Noble Energy (US) and Delek-Avner (Israel). Other gas fields were later discovered in the same zone of the "Levantine Basin": Leviathan (Israel), Aphrodite (Cyprus), but most importantly Zohr, in 2015 off the coast of Egypt: the largest gas field ever discovered in the Mediterranean, larger than all the others combined. It was found by the Italian oil giant ENI, which has already started to exploit it and is aiming to start production by the end of 2017. Meanwhile, Israel, supported by its US ally, is drilling away, driven by a free-market and idealistic vision: exploiting the gas will oblige the countries of the region to co-operate as business partners, which will in turn create peace and stability. But the gas under the Mediterranean Sea may also carry within it the seeds of new conflicts. On the divided island of Cyprus, it threatens reunification efforts. In Lebanon, its location - straddling the disputed maritime boundary with Israel - boosts the belligerent rhetoric of the armed Hezbollah group. It is hoped the gas could be worth billions of dollars, and all eyes are on the highly coveted European gas market, which Russia would like to keep for itself. Speaking to FRANCE 24 in Washington, the US Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs summarised the situation. “All of a sudden, it’s not just a bunch of fishermen that care about those waters. Suddenly, there’s billions and billions of dollars”, he explained. The stakes are certainly high. In total, nearly 3,500 billion cubic metres of natural gas could lie under the eastern Mediterranean, according to a study by the US Geological Survey. From Egypt to Syria via Lebanon, Israel and Cyprus, our reporter investigated this precious resource, a double-edged sword that awakens old Cold War reflexes and could well upset the geopolitical order of an already unstable region.

Ambassador Mbete said Zimbabwe and South Africa were in talks on how to strengthen cooperation in all areas of development."Talks began as

Fracking Hell: The Untold Story
Find more Earth Focus content at https://www.linktv.org/earthfocus An original investigative report by Earth Focus and UK's Ecologist Film Unit looks at the risks of natural gas development in the Marcellus Shale. From toxic chemicals in drinking water to unregulated interstate dumping of potentially radioactive waste that experts fear can contaminate water supplies in major population centers including New York City, are the health consequences worth the economic gains? Marcellus Shale contains enough natural gas to supply all US gas needs for 14 years. But as gas drilling takes place, using a process called hydraulic fracturing or "fracking," toxic chemicals and methane gas seep into drinking water. Now experts fear that unacceptable levels of radioactive Radium 226 in gas development waste. Fracking chemicals are linked to bone, liver and breast cancers, gastrointestinal, circulatory, respiratory, developmental as well as brain and nervous system disorders. Such chemicals are present in frack waste and may find their way into drinking water and air. Waste from Pennsylvania gas wells -- waste that may also contain unacceptable levels of radium -- is routinely dumped across state lines into landfills in New York, Ohio and West Virginia. New York does not require testing waste for radioactivity prior to dumping or treatment. So drill cuttings from Pennsylvania have been dumped in New York's Chemung and other counties and liquid waste is shipped to treatment plants in Auburn and Watertown New York. How radioactive is this waste? Experts are calling are for testing to find out. New York State may have been the first state in the nation to put a temporary hold on fracking pending a safety review, but it allows other states to dump toxic frack waste within its boundaries. With a gas production boom underway in the Marcellus Shale and plans for some 400,000 wells in the coming decades, the cumulative impact of dumping potential lethal waste without adequate oversight is a catastrophe waiting to happen. And now U.S. companies are exporting fracking to Europe.

What is Palladium?
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Palladium”. Palladium is an important component in electronics, and is used in many new technologies such as fuel cells. As a commodity, it has drawn the attention of investors because it is not easily substituted, and is an important component of catalytic converters. Palladium, platinum, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium and osmium form a group of elements referred to as the platinum group metals. It is a metal used in many types of manufacturing processes and is found in electronics and industrial products. Palladium is an element found in the periodic table (atomic number 46), and is considered to be rare. The majority of the world's supply comes from mines located in the United States, Russia, South Africa and Canada. More than half the annual global demand of about 10 million ounces for palladium is from the automobile sector, while a quarter is used in other industries and in dentistry. Physically backed exchange-traded funds account for some demand, and about 4% of demand comes from jewelry. Car sales in China, the world's biggest auto market, are expected to grow by 11% this year to reach 24 million units out of the global total of 88.5 million, according to industry consultancy Frost & Sullivan. It expects U.S. sales to climb about 4% to almost 16 million. Barclay’s analysts say the Chinese government's plans to phase out 6 million old and environmentally unfriendly vehicles will create demand for 1.5 million passenger cars this year, which would further support the price of palladium. Palladium is also used in cars powered by natural gas, which is a growing niche offering in emerging markets such as India. Brazil, India and Russia are expected to experience robust auto-sales growth this year. India car sales in 2014 are expected to rise 10% to 3.2 million units.

Ghana to sign natural gas import agreement with Equatorial Guinea
Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo plans to sign an agreement to import liquefied natural gas from Equatorial Guinea. This came during his three-day visit to the Gulf of Guinea petroleum producer. Though an oil and gas producer in its own right, Ghana has in the past struggled to ensure reliable power production for a growing domestic market. Equatorial Guinea, meanwhile, is exploring the possibility of selling a portion of its LNG cargos to its African neighbours. A statement from Akufo-Addo's communications director said the president was expected to sign a framework document with his counterpart to import LNG for five years. The deal is part of a broader strategy by Ghana's to boost supplies to fuel power plants.

Coal Seam Gas - The Fight For Our Lives - Spread Virally
Coal seam gas mining (CSG) is developing rapidly in New South Wales and Queensland and is commencing in other states. The legal and administrative protections are inadequate to ensure that public health is not harmed and that environmental damage does not leave a legacy for generations. The public health responsibilities of state and federal governments are to prevent harm by careful scientific assessment of possible hazards, their risks and methods of prevention. Therefore they deal particularly with clean air, clean water and uncontaminated food. Industry and state governments have frequently reassured the public that there are no dangers from CSG to water supplies and to their health. But what is their evidence? Overseas health concerns are emerging. A ban on shale gas mining in France and moratoriums in parts of the USA and South Africa are recent developments. The United States Environmental Protection Authority has begun a comprehensive study to investigate the potential adverse impacts that hydraulic fracturing may have on water quality and public health. There are differences between shale gas mining -- the predominant process overseas, particularly in the US -- and coal seam gas mining in Australia, in the depth of drilling and the volume of water brought to the surface, but there are health impacts common to both: the potential for contamination of water for drinking and agricultural use and for air pollution around wells. Hydraulic fracturing (fracking), often used in the mining process, involves the pressurised injection of a large volume of water, as well as chemical additives, into rock. The large volume of saline water returning to the surface contains injected contaminants and those leached from rocks and sediments. Nearby aquifers, ground water, soil and air may be contaminated. Some chemicals used in mining or leached from underground into water have the potential to harm human health given sufficient dose and duration of exposure, and this potential harm includes increased risks of cancer and other serious long-term outcomes. In a recent submission to the Senate Inquiry into Management of the Murray Darling Basin and the impact of CSG mining operations, Doctors for the Environment Australia has highlighted these concerns, recommending application of the precautionary principle, putting in place protections until sufficient research can be undertaken to adequately document health risks. Food quality and security is essential for good health. Agriculture, already under threat from more severe and prolonged drought conditions associated with climate change, will be further compromised by the CSG industry. As the industry expands, the vast quantities of water diverted from agricultural use to CSG operations and the loss of productive cropland may well diminish Australia's ability to feed itself and the world. Water and air pollution, water shortages, permanent degradation of productive agricultural land and loss of livelihood and landscape, all have mental health consequences for communities living in a gas field. The CSG process can divide previously close-knit rural communities, increasing tension and disharmony, impact on local economies, and threaten other industries such as tourism. But climate change is also an important health issue, and the carbon footprint of CSG over coal is said to be lower. Does this override other considerations? Not at all. Proper monitoring of fugitive emissions is needed to enable accurate comparisons with coal. The International Energy Agency has warned that there is a danger that over reliance on CSG will delay the vital transition to renewable energy. What needs to be done to protect human health? In any new development, health should be an integral part of the assessment process. State Departments of Health should have had a major role on the safety of a CSG development via a health risk assessment process. This is not currently happening in each state, and logically there should be one best practice national process. Adequate information is needed to support risk assessment and health protection and this is largely lacking. Greater transparency of industry practices and improved monitoring would start to fill this gap. There is a strong case for an independent, national Health Impact Assessment process, providing a uniform regulatory framework for the industry in all states and territories. While these protections are being developed, the precautionary principle should be exercised to recognise potential harms and err on the side of caution with any new CSG development. Human health relies on the maintenance of a healthy environment, clean drinking water, secure food production, the cohesion of community and family life. The new gold rush represented by coal seam mining should not be allowed to endanger these basic health needs of Australians.

Newsroom: Karoo fracking
Shale gas exploration plays a major role in energy production in countries across the world and could have the same impact in South Africa. However the process of actually commencing fracking operations seems to be moving at a snail pace. There are also still a number of issues that certain groups within the country feel need to be addressed. They include questions like: Can the Karoo landscape handle it? What would the impact be on the water sources? Last week The Treasure Karoo Action Group announced that they will write to Finance Minister, Nhlanhla Nene, to request a breakdown of his 100-million-rand budget for fracking. During his budget speech, Nene said 108-million-rand would be allocated to prepare for shale gas mining. The Treasure Karoo Action group is a non-profit organisation aimed at promoting awareness, transparency, accountability and justice around the issue of shale gas in South Africa.

How To Use Condensed Natural Gas - CNG Alternative Fuel
How To Use Condensed Natural Gas - CNG Alternative Fuel // Compressed natural gas (CNG) (methane stored at high pressure) is a fuel which can be used in place of gasoline, diesel fuel and propane/LPG. CNG combustion produces fewer undesirable gases than the aforementioned fuels. In comparison to other fuels, natural gas poses less of a threat in the event of a spill, because it is lighter than air and disperses quickly when released. Biomethane – cleaned-up biogas from anaerobic digestion or landfills – can be used. CNG is used in traditional gasoline/internal combustion engine automobiles that have been modified or in vehicles which were manufactured for CNG use, either alone ('dedicated'), with a segregated gasoline system to extend range (dual fuel) or in conjunction with another fuel such as diesel (bi-fuel). Natural gas vehicles are increasingly used in Iran, especially Pakistan, the Asia-Pacific region, Indian capital of Delhi, and other large cities like Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata—as well as cities such as Lucknow, Kanpur, Varanasi, etc. Its use is also increasing in South America, Europe and North America because of rising gasoline prices. In response to high fuel prices and environmental concerns, CNG is starting to be used also in tuk-tuks and pickup trucks, transit and school buses, and trains. The cost and placement of fuel storage tanks is the major barrier to wider/quicker adoption of CNG as a fuel. It is also why municipal government, public transportation vehicles were the most visible early adopters of it, as they can more quickly amortize the money invested in the new (and usually cheaper) fuel. In spite of these circumstances, the number of vehicles in the world using CNG has grown steadily (30 percent per year).Now, as a result of the industry's steady growth, the cost of such fuel storage tanks has been brought down to a much more acceptable level. Especially for the CNG Type 1 and Type 2 tanks, many countries are able to make reliable and cost effective tanks for conversion need.
