Stop Adani in Australia

New Delhi, Jan 11 : Teenage climate activist from Sweden Greta Thunberg has tweeted with the #StopAdani hashtag, asking German engineering major Siemens to “stop, delay or interrupt” the building of the Adani coal mine in Australia.

“It seems that @SiemensDE have the power to stop, delay or at least interrupt the building of the huge Adani coal mine in Australia. On Monday they will announce their decision. Please help pushing them to make the only right decision,” Thunberg said.

Thunberg also asked netizens to put pressure on Siemens to call off the contract for the mine.

Thunberg has called for Siemens to review its $20 million contract to supply rail infrastructure to Adani Group’s Carmichael mine in Australia which has been facing backlash from environment experts.

Siemens has said that it will decide on the project by Monday. Thunberg was in the news recently for her speech on preventing climate change in the United Nations.

“Dates for a rescheduled conference in 2021, hosted in Glasgow by the UK in partnership with Italy, will be set out in due course following further discussion with parties,” it added, Xinhua reported.

The press release noted that the decision has been taken by representatives of the COP Bureau of the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change), with Britain and its Italian partners.

“In light of the ongoing, worldwide effects of COVID-19, holding an ambitious, inclusive COP26 in November 2020 is no longer possible,” stated the release.

“Rescheduling will ensure all parties can focus on the issues to be discussed at this vital conference and allow more time for the necessary preparations to take place.”

UN Climate Change Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa was quoted as saying that COVID-19 is the most urgent threat facing humanity today, “but we cannot forget that climate change is the biggest threat facing humanity over the long term.”

End of Days Sylvia Browne

New Delhi, March 3 : The prediction for a Covid-19 type of pandemic which will attack the lungs had been made by Sylvia Browne in her book, “End of Days”.

In the bestseller titled “End of Days: Predictions and Prophecies about the End of the World”, author Sylvia Browne seems to have got the prediction right about Covid-19.

According to the book, “In around 2020 a severe pneumonia like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and revisiting all known treatments.”

She added further, “Almost more baffling than the illness itself will be the fact that it will suddenly vanish as quickly as it arrived, attack again 10 years later, and then disappear completely.”

Covid-19 is a virus which attacks the lungs and has become a potent force in the beginning of the year 2020. There is no known vaccine yet for the virus. It is yet to be seen if the illness vanishes quickly and whether it attacks again 10 years later. This part of the prediction remains to be seen in the future.

Gold reserves Sonbhadra

Kolkata, Feb 22 : The Geological Survey of India (GSI) has poured cold water on the El Dorado-type scenario in Sonbhadra as it estimates that only 160 kg of gold can be extracted from the deposits and the surveys for gold in the region have not been encouraging.

The GSI has clarified on news reports about the availability of 3,350 tonnes of gold in Sonbhadra Pahadi and Hardi field.

Some of the reports have mentioned that the State Directorate of Geology and Mining, (DGM) Uttar Pradesh has shared this information.

“Geological Survey of India is not a party to the information published in the news. GSI has not estimated such kind of vast resource of gold deposits in Sonbhadra district, UP”, the GSI said categorically in a statement.

The Geological Survey of India, Northern Region, has carried out several exploration works for gold. “However, the results were not encouraging about major resources for gold in Sonbhadra district”, GSI said.

This exploration was carried out almost twenty years back, in the field season 1998-99 and 1999-2000 and the report has been handed over to the DGM UP for information and further necessary action.

In the report, GSI has estimated a probable category resource of 52806.25 tonnes of ore with 3.03 grams per tonne gold (average grade) for a strike length of 170m in Sub-Block-H, Sonapahari area, Sonbhadra district, UP.

The mineralized zone having an average grade of 3.03 grams per tonne of gold is tentative in nature and the total gold which can be extracted from the total resource of 52806.25 tonnes of ore is approximately 160 kg and not 3,350 tonnes as mentioned in the media, GSI said.

A joint press conference as sought by the DMG, UP has also been organized by GSI and DGM Uttar Pradesh in Lucknow to clarify the issue.
