10,000 People stand strong to protect land and water from Kinder Morgan
What do ten thousand people gathering to stand with Indigenous Peoples to protect land, rivers, streams and the Pacific Ocean from a dirty oil pipeline look like?
Texas-based Kinder Morgan, which already operates enough oil and gas pipelines to circle the planet three times over, wants to put another pipeline under its belt. The new pipeline it wants to build from Alberta, across Indigenous lands, to the British Columbia coast would carry some of the world’s dirtiest oil and facilitate the expansion of the tar sands.

World’s first floating nuclear power plant bound for the Arctic, warns Greenpeace.
Amsterdam, Netherlands – The “Akademik Lomonosov”, the world’s first floating nuclear power plant, has this morning left St. Petersburg and will be towed through Estonian, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian waters towards Murmansk, warned Greenpeace.
The floating nuclear power plant was initially supposed to be loaded with nuclear fuel and tested on site in the centre of St. Petersburg. However, due to pressure from the Baltic states and a successful petition organised by Greenpeace Russia, Rosatom, the state-controlled nuclear giant that owns and operates the floating nuclear power plant, decided on 21 July 2017 to move loading and testing to Murmansk.
“To test a nuclear reactor in a densely populated area like the centre of St. Petersburg is irresponsible to say the least. However, moving the testing of this ‘nuclear Titanic’ away from the public eye will not make it less so: Nuclear reactors bobbing around the Arctic Ocean will pose a shockingly obvious threat to a fragile environment which is already under enormous pressure from climate change,” said Jan Haverkamp, nuclear expert for Greenpeace Central and Eastern Europe.
