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.

South Africa faces environmental concerns over fracking
Farmers in South Africa's Karoo region fear fracking could devastate their environment in the face of a desperate need for alternative energy supplies to fuel its growing economy. Using a process called hydraulic fracturing, one drills into the ground - then horizontally as small explosions pierce the shale rock. Water, sand and chemicals are then forced into the rock to release the gas. But fracking is controversial and locals are concerned about what impact that is going to have on the environment. Oil companies insist that drilling for gas in Africa's largest economy will bring jobs and development -- without destroying the environment. Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports from the Karoo.

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.

New Fracking Frontiers: Gas Exploration Goes Global
Find more Earth Focus content at https://www.linktv.org/earthfocus Shale gas exploration has gone global. Energy companies are surveying shale rock formations in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia hoping to discover the next big deposit of natural gas. This report, by correspondent Steve Sapienza, features the voices of residents in two regions, Eastern Ohio and Poland, both touted as new frontiers in shale gas exploration. Energy companies are already drilling in Poland, using hydraulic fracturing, or fracking -- a controversial method of gas extraction imported from the United States. In Eastern Ohio, the underground injection of fracking wastewater has triggered earthquakes in Youngstown. Fracking wastewater has also been illegally dumped into the Mahoning river. Despite the promise of jobs and revenue, residents in both the Ohio and Poland are struggling to understand the long-term impact of shale gas drilling on their communities.

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.

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.

10 Cheapest African Countries to Live or Retire
Cheapest African Countries to Live or Retire ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Subscribe to our YouTube channel : https://goo.gl/oHL7nB ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ 1. South Africa South Africa still remains the cheapest country to live in Africa as well as in the world. Being the world’s largest producer of gold, platinum, and chromium, the country has a rich economy. This results in a high local purchasing power compared to New York’s, thus placing the country at No.1. Additionally, South Africa offers lower prices on consumer goods and groceries, as well as rent. With one-bedroom in Durban going for around $280 a month and monthly expenses of just under $400, this is an ideal country to spend time with minimal cost implications on your budget. 2. Zambia For the past ten years, Zambia economy has been growing fast with real GDP growth averaging roughly 6.7 percent per annum. 3. Algeria Algeria has a number of natural resources; the country is ranked 10th in the world in terms of natural gas reserves, and sixth- largest gas exporter. It ranks 16th in oil reserves. The major contributor of foreign earnings is Hydrocarbons which accounts for about 60 percent of budget revenues, 30% of GDP, and over 95% of export earnings. 4. Tunisia 80 percent of the country’s exports are bound for Tunisia's main economic partner, the EU. Tunisia's liberal strategy, coupled with investments in education and infrastructure, fueled decades of 4-5% annual GDP growth and improving living standards. The country offers low cost of living, cheaper rent and consumer goods making it a relatively cheaper country to live. 5. Egypt Last year, higher levels of foreign investment contributed to a slight rebound in GDP growth after a particularly depressed post-revolution period. With its historic sceneries, Egypt has been able to sustain its large population of 88.5 million through tourism which is the biggest industry in the country. Egypt is also known for textiles and food processing industries. Consumer goods and rent are cheaper in Egypt; a one-bedroom in Cairo costs just $350 a month. 6. Morocco One thing that Morocco does very well, is capitalizing on its proximity to Europe. Its economy is also driven by agriculture, tourism, textiles, apparel, and subcomponents. 7. Namibia Namibia is highly dependent on the extraction and processing of minerals for export. Mining accounts for 11.5 percent of GDP, providing more than 50 percent of foreign exchange earnings. With its rich diamond deposits, Namibia produces gem-quality diamonds which contributes to the country’s foreign exchange. Apart from that, Namibia is the world's fifth-largest producer of uranium, it also produces large quantities of zinc and is a smaller producer of gold and copper. 8. Kenya With the growing economy, Kenya’s Nairobi is becoming a city for multinational companies seeking a foothold for their African operations. Almost as sophisticated as the South African cities, Nairobi offers its visitors a “kinder and gentler” atmosphere. For the last seven years, Kenya’s real GDP growth has averaged over 5 percent. Since 2014 Kenya has been ranked as a lower-middle-income country because its per capita GDP crossed a World Bank threshold. 9. Zimbabwe To counter the economic meltdown, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) introduced bond coins denominated in 1, 5, 10, and 25 cent increments on a par with the US dollar in December 2014, 10. Ethiopia For more than a decade now, Ethiopia has grown at a rate of 8-11 percent, making it the fifth-fastest growing economy among the 188 IMF member countries. The growth is majorly contributed by the country’s agriculture (which employs about 80 percent of Ethiopians) and service sectors. Despite the high growth rate, the country is still struggling with poverty due to rapid population growth and drought. Rent costs about $45 a month. Food and other amenities are also affordable for anyone who wants to live in the country.

Sound Problem Fix High Resolution Reupload = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrA-tegCkhE Mponeng is a gold mine in South Africa's Gauteng province. It extends over 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) below the surface and is considered to be one of the most substantial gold mines in the world. It is also currently the world's deepest mine from ground level. The trip from the surface to the bottom of the mine takes over an hour. Over 5400 metric tonnes of rock are excavated from Mponeng each day. At a price of $19.4 per gram of gold the mine only needs to extract 10 grams of gold per ton excavated to remain profitable. The mine contains at least two gold reefs with the deepest one metre thick. The temperature of the rock reaches 66 °C (151 °F) and the mine pumps slurry ice underground to cool the tunnel air below 30 °C (86 °F). A mixture of concrete water and rock is packed into excavated areas which further acts as an insulator. Tunnel walls are secured by flexible shotcrete reinforced with steel fibers which is further held in place by diamond-mesh netting.

US$ 1.4bn Ethiopia-Djibouti oil pipeline project given greenlight
Construction of US$ 1.4bn Ethiopia-Djibouti oil pipeline has finally been given authorization to commence after an agreement was signed between the two countries on February 7 this month. The project is set to take three years according to the Ethiopian Ambassador to Djibouti Suleman Dedefo. The oil pipeline, which measures 550km in length, will stretch from the Djibout port to a fuel depot in Awash and find its way via Ethiopia’s eastern town, Dire Dawa. The fuel is at the end going to be distributed to the whole nation from Awash. The oil pipeline construction project will be managed by the US-based African infrastructure development company Black Rhino. The signing was done by Ethiopia’s Minister for Mines, Tolosa Shagi and witnessed by Djibouti’s Minister for Energy in charge of Natural Resources, Ali Yacoub Mahamoud. The fuel reservoir project is anticipated to minimize fuel transportation cost in the region and reduce usage of trucks ferrying the fuel from Djibouti to Ethiopia. At the moment, Ethiopia imports petroleum using trucks with benzene imported from Sudan to the local market. Other oil products which are come from the Djibouti ports make up 80% percent of total oil imports. Black Rhino Group and MOGS (Mining, Oil & Gas Services) had submitted proposal for the oil pipeline project late last year.

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.

Coal Mining 100 Years Ago: "The Story of Coal" ~ 1920 Bray Studios
Geology & Earth Sciences playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL33B1A9216BB65F7A more at http://scitech.quickfound.net How coal is formed, and how coal is mined. Silent. Subtitled "Studies in Chemistry." 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/Coal Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Coal (from the Old English term col, which has meant "mineral of fossilized carbon" since the 13th century) is a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock usually occurring in rock strata in layers or veins called coal beds or coal seams. The harder forms, such as anthracite coal, can be regarded as metamorphic rock because of later exposure to elevated temperature and pressure. Coal is composed primarily of carbon along with variable quantities of other elements, chiefly hydrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and nitrogen. Throughout history, coal has been a useful resource. It is primarily burned for the production of electricity and/or heat, and is also used for industrial purposes, such as refining metals. A fossil fuel, coal forms when dead plant matter is converted into peat, which in turn is converted into lignite, then sub-bituminous coal, after that bituminous coal, and lastly anthracite. This involves biological and geological processes that take place over a long period. Coal is the largest source of energy for the generation of electricity worldwide, as well as one of the largest worldwide anthropogenic sources of carbon dioxide releases. In 1999 world gross carbon dioxide emissions from coal usage were 8,666 million tonnes of carbon dioxide. Coal-fired electric power generation emits around 2,000 pounds of carbon dioxide for every megawatt-hour generated, which is almost double the approximately 1100 pounds of carbon dioxide released by a natural gas-fired electric plant per megawatt-hour generated. Because of this higher carbon efficiency of natural gas generation, as the fuel mix in the United States has changed to reduce coal and increase natural gas generation, carbon dioxide emissions have fallen. Those measured in the first quarter of 2012 were the lowest of any recorded for the first quarter of any year since 1992. Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction. Since 1983 the world top coal producer is China, in 2011 China produced 3,520 millions of tonnes of coal -- 49.5% of 7,695 millions tonnes world coal production. In 2011 other large producers were United States (993 millions tonnes), India (589), European Union (576) and Australia (416). In 2010 largest exporters were Australia with 328 million tonnes (27.1% of world coal export) and Indonesia with 316 millions tonnes (26.1%), while largest importers were Japan with 207 million tonnes (17.5% of world coal import), China with 195 million tonnes (16.6%) and South Korea with 126 million tonnes (10.7%)... Formation At various times in the geologic past, the Earth had dense forests in low-lying wetland areas. Due to natural processes such as flooding, these forests were buried under the soil. As more and more soil deposited over them, they were compressed. The temperature also rose as they sank deeper and deeper. As the process continued the plant matter was protected from biodegradation and oxidation, usually by mud or acidic water. This trapped the carbon in immense peat bogs that were eventually covered and deeply buried by sediments. Under high pressure and high temperature, dead vegetation was slowly converted to coal. As coal contains mainly carbon, the conversion of dead vegetation into coal is called carbonization. The wide, shallow seas of the Carboniferous era provided ideal conditions for coal formation, although coal is known from most geological periods. The exception is the coal gap in the Permian--Triassic extinction event, where coal is rare. Coal is known from Precambrian strata, which predate land plants — this coal is presumed to have originated from residues of algae...

A History of Coal's Extraordinary Impact on Human Civilization (2003)
The goal of coal mining is to obtain coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. In the United States "colliery" has historically been used to describe a coal mine operation, but the word today is not commonly used. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunneling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts, to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyors, jacks and shearers The American share of world coal production remained steady at about 20 percent from 1980 to 2005, at about 1 billion short tons per year. The United States was ranked as the 2nd coal producing country in the world in 2010, and possesses the largest coal reserves in the world. In 2008 then-President George W. Bush stated that coal was the most reliable source of electricity.[61] However, in 2011 President Barack Obama said that the US should rely more on "clean" sources of energy that emit lower or no carbon dioxide pollution.[62] As of 2013, while domestic coal consumption for electric power was being displaced by natural gas, exports were increasing. US coal production increasingly comes from strip mines in the western United States, such as from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Montana.[63] Coal has come under continued price pressure from natural gas and renewable energy sources, which has resulted in a rapid decline of coal in the U.S. and several notable bankruptcies including Peabody Energy. On April 13, 2016 it reported, its revenue tumbled 17 percent as coal price fell and lost 2 billion dollars on the previous year.[64] It then filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy on April 13, 2016.[64] The Harvard Business Review discussed retraining coal workers for solar photovoltaic employment because of the rapid rise in U.S. solar jobs.[65] A recent study indicated that this was technically possible and would account for only 5% of the industrial revenue from a single year to provide coal workers with job security in the energy industry as whole. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining

West Africa's gas-flaring curse
Every year billions of dollars "go up in smoke" as oil and gas companies burn off unwanted natural gas. The controversial practice, called gas flaring, reduces the chance of the gas exploding. But it produces significant greenhouse-gas emissions at a time of growing concern over climate warming. The World Bank estimates that about $30bn worth of gas is burned off every year, which is equivalent to 30 per cent of the European Union's annual gas consumption. The world's largest gas-flaring operations are in the Niger Delta, where communities are complaining of chronic health problems and pollution. Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege reports. [July 4, 2010]

Jason Brewer, Continental Coal interviewed on Sky Business News - June 2011
Jason Brewer Executive Director Continental Coal interviewed on Sky Business News - first uploaded on Jun 27, 2011 The panel includes Kieran Kelly, Managing Director, Sirius Fund Management, Jason Brewer, Executive Director, Continental Coal, and Jonathan Barrett, Managing Director, Commodity Broking Services. Daggar-Nickson notes Continental Coal announced today its fifth straight quarter of thermal coal production from its mining operations in South Africa. Brewer talks about the Continental Coal's operations in South Africa. Barrett expects the South African coal industry will continue grow. Barrett says the outlook for coal remains relatively positive because of increasing demand as a result of a number of power shortages. Barrett discusses the increasing demand for coal from Asia. Brewer notes the majority of South African coal is exported to India. Brewer says Continental Coal has been exporting since November 2010 and have consistently achieved in excess of US$120 a tonne. Kelly says they are nervous about the impact of the carbon tax on the coal market in Australia. Kelly asks whether Brewer believes that uranium is no longer a competitive force in their market. Brewer agrees that uranium stocks have been oversold. Brewer talks about the opportunities for new coal and gas fired power stations to be built as countries, such as Germany and South Africa, phase out their nuclear programs. Brewer says uranium will continue to have a position in the market but the demand for thermal coal remains positive. Barrett notes the uptake in the natural gas market. Barrett says natural gas remains a cheap alternative from both a pricing perspective and a carbon perspective. Brewer says the carbon debate is not a factor in South Africa. Brewer says the competitiveness of natural gas from a pricing perspective is critical for thermal coal. Kelly discusses the benefits of uranium, compared to gas and oil. Barrett says OPEC is reportedly looking to increase production.
