The effects of environmental injustice in Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe is a mineral rich country. But the people who live in the mining area do not profit from it. At the contrary, the environmental degradation destroys their livelihoods. And the current El Niño phenomenon is causing a food security crisis, pushing people to migration. Mela Chiponda explains in this lecture why women are more effected by environmental degradation and climate injustice. She and the NGO "Chiadzwa Community Development Trust (CCDT)" helps women to recover their livelihood, trees and land, and also helps redefining their role in society. Their goal: "Empower women with information, so they can reclaim their rights."

Impacts of mining on Children in India
Mining has always been a symbol of struggle between human need and human greed. The greed has always undermined the need. We have seen many such struggles of tribal people in India as in Madhya Pradesh diamond mines or the one in Niyamgiri hills against Vedanta in Odisha, and many more. It is in and around these mining areas that we find many children growing up and being affected by mining both directly and indirectly. The mess that is created in the lives of children as a result of mining is left to be addressed by the departments like child welfare, tribal welfare, labour and others which provide ample room for ambiguities in accountability. What are these children paying for? Is it our liberties and leisure? Or is it their poverty and unavailability of proper education? The answer of these Indian childhoods in pits lies somewhere in the administrative documents dumped deep under the piles of money earned by these mines. Watch the video to know more.

The real realization of human negative impact on the natural environment
Massive exploitation of surface coal mines under the coordination of these poorly managed regional government permits has damaged the nature environment in the Kalimantan, 2000s. The pictures from some of which are in East Kalimantan not including South Kalimantan and surrounding area, which pictures taken by a sr. offshore structure engineer who is one of the environmentalists on the helicopter when he often went to the sea offshore when it was still active in the work there. This is to remind all that the attention to the environment, how to preserve the environment, do not destroy and abandoned but should be improved for environmental sustainability. As a means, damaged environment that should be done reforestation that can be comfortable to make interesting objects and tours as well. Of course this helps to reduce global warming , not add it if realized environmental preservation.

🇦🇺 Australia's boomtown curse | 101 East
Australia is blessed with rugged beauty and a wealth of natural resources - including coal, iron, natural gas and gold. Such minerals are powering Australia's economy to record highs. And as demand from China for more resources grows, new mines continue to open across the country. But critics say there is a dark side to this success story. Mining regions attract transient workers keen to make a quick buck, creating social and environmental problems and a rising crime rate. Mines are also draining Australia's pool of skilled labour from other industries and driving up wages. 101 East asks: What is the cost of Australia's mining boom? Here Australian 101 East fixer Sian Gard takes us behind the scenes of the 12-day film shoot with reporter-producer Chan Tau Chou and cameraman Lee Ali. When you travel what is the worst thing that could happen? Some might say missing a flight, others might say you get crammed into the centre seat on a full flight. But when you are part of a film crew, one of the more difficult challenges is travelling with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment. When an international film crew from Al Jazeera English calls you and says they want to come to Australia and film a story about the mining industry in two weeks time, the first thing you say is "I would love to be a part of this incredible story". The second thing you do? Start working fast. The scope and depth of the mining industry, its impact on the country and the state can be broken down into small digestible chunks as political, economic and social, but the bigger picture is a great deal more complicated. The Australian mining industry has seen exponential growth over the last 10 years with increasing exports to China. Western Australia, considered the economic hub of the country, now holds the nation's purse strings and is host to some of the world's most influential mining and resource sector companies. Perth, considered the second-most isolated city in the world, has seen changes on many fronts that not only includes an increase in resource dollars but a higher cost of living, a politically strong liberal state government and increasing financial disparity between mining and resource sector employees and everyone else. So how does one get all these issues into one story? You make phone calls and lots of them. One-hundred-and-eighty-one kilogrammes of camera equipment and an introductory dinner later, we are off filming in Perth and Karratha. We have 12 days to interview a range of people invested in the mining and resources sector in various ways. Finance experts, counsellors who see the downside of living a Fly-In-Fly-Out (FIFO) lifestyle, business operators who say their home towns are dying due to the mining industry and police who are left to clean up the alcohol and drug fuelled mess from workers blowing off steam. The biggest challenge of a shoot on this scale? Distance, time and getting people to talk on camera. Logistically, organising a film shoot for a crew that is flying from Malaysia to Perth in western Australia and then Karratha in the north-west of western Australia, with budgets and deadlines is exciting, fun and a challenge. Accommodation, hire cars, flights, places to eat, filming permissions and scheduling interviews, your world becomes one mission and one only. Get what the film crew needs so that the story is done. Karratha in the north of the state is a 22-hour drive by car or a two-hour flight on one of two commercial carriers that fly every hour to the isolated desert town. After checking in with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment or 13 cases of luggage and arriving in Karratha, we unpack and our long days begin. The strain of putting together a half-hour documentary in a foreign country and dealing with tight deadlines can put a great deal of pressure on any crew. People generally get tired, they snap and sometimes when you are confined to a small space for hours on end (i.e. a car that is loaded to the roof with camera equipment) the last thing you want to do is see the people you are working with. But Chan Tau Chou and Lee Ali approached the long stressful days with humour, grace, professionalism and the ability to sleep in the most unusual locations (on top of windy rocky outcrops). Filming in the north-west was a whirlwind of driving long distances, climbing rocky terrain, rising at 4am and falling into bed at midnight with back-to-back interviews in between. I am excited to see the final product of Australia's boomtown curse. I think it is a story that people need to hear about.

Reef creates jobs in tourism (and mining!)
According to a Deloitte report, the Great Barrier Reef is credited with supporting 64,000 direct and indirect jobs. In all the regions bordering the Great Barrier Reef, the reef creates more than 19,000 tourism jobs. As a comparison, the resource sector creates almost 19,000 jobs in the Mackay region alone, with a further 12,000 created in the Fitzroy region. The reef also is responsible for some of those mining jobs as workers move to our part of the world to take up jobs that flow from the mining dollars but they come also because of lifestyle - having fishing, diving, island-hopping opportunities available in their new backyard.

Mining the Golden Mountains of Suriname With An Ex-Rebel Leader
Gold is everywhere in Suriname, from political power to what the locals wear on their fingers, the effects of gold mining seep into all aspects of society. The industry is a necessary source of income for many Surinamese, but it's also destroying the environment, bad for public health, and rife with corruption. VICE Netherlands went to Suriname to see how gold is intertwined with everyday life in the country. They ride along with 'Jungle' Ronnie Brunswick - an ex-rebel leader who waged a violent civil war but is now a successful businessman, owning thousands of hectares of gold mining land. VICE Netherlands also witnessed the dangers of mercury, which is used widely in the recovery of gold, and visited Benz Village, where everything in life is paid for with gold.

Citizen Voices Matter - Sustainable Economic Alternatives to Open-Pit Mining
People in northern Wisconsin have worked to create a sustainable economy in the state's iconic Northwoods. But their livelihoods could be threatened by environmental damage caused by a proposed open-pit iron mine. This is the story of Hermit Creek, Landis and Steven Spickerman's organic, family farm, which is located near the proposed mine site. In 2013, public officials ignored the community's objections when they passed a law deregulating iron mining in the state, but you can help to make these voices be heard. At the center of the debate over the use or protection of our natural resources is a coveted, 21-mile iron ore deposit that lies in Wisconsin's Penokee Hills. The Gogebic Iron Range stretches between the community of Upson and Mineral Lake, and includes the headwaters of the Bad River, a beautiful, pristine and sacred river that supplies the ground and surface waters of a watershed that reaches across Ashland and Iron counties, the Bad River Tribe of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians' reservation and Lake Superior's largest wild rice beds in the Kakagon Sloughs. Lake Superior is the world's largest freshwater lake. The wooded hills and complex watershed not only supply the drinking water for private wells, but also are the basis for the agricultural, forestry and tourism industries. Those who are working for a sustainable economic future and to protect the Bad River watershed see an open-pit iron mine as something that may bring short-term jobs, but will cause long-term damage to the region. A mine is not a done deal, however. Please share this film and help others learn about this vision for a future economy that can sustain this and future generations.

Canada's Toxic Chemical Valley (Full Length)
The first thing you notice about Sarnia, Ontario, is the smell: a potent mix of gasoline, melting asphalt, and the occasional trace of rotten egg. Shortly after my arrival I already felt unpleasantly high and dizzy, like I wasn't getting enough air. Maybe this had something to do with the bouquet of smokestacks in the southern part of town that, all day every day, belch fumes and orange flares like something out of a Blade Runner-esque dystopia. Sarnia is home to more than 60 refineries and chemical plants that produce gasoline, synthetic rubbers, and other materials that the world's industries require to create the commercial products we know and love. The city's most prominent and profitable attraction is an area about the size of 100 city blocks known as the Chemical Valley, where 40 percent of Canada's chemical industry can be found packed together like a noxious megalopolis. According to a 2011 report by the World Health Organization, Sarnia's air is the most polluted air in Canada. There are more toxic air pollutants billowing out of smokestacks here than in all of the provinces of New Brunswick or Manitoba.

History of Cornish Mining - Cligga Mine Revisited - Poldark Times
Cornish Tin Mine and Mining History - Cligga Mine Revisited - Cligga Head, Perranporth Cornwall. 3 ghostly images are in the footage from Nosferatu (copyright expired). Revisit of Cligga Tin Mine with much improved lighting, filmed on my GoPro3, 3 hour trip condensed into 30 minutes no software enhancement required. Cree t6 and XML-U2 lamps provide incredible lighting. Bob and myself both have extensive knowledge of mines and mining techniques through working in the industry, old workings are extremely dangerous and must only be entered with a full understanding of how they work, many transfer chutes, winzes, shafts and open stopes make it a hazardous environment. History of Cligga Mine. Cligga Wolfram & Tin Mine lies on the cliff tops about one and a quarter miles southwest of Perranporth on the North Cornish coast. The granite pegmatite cliffs have been altered to greisen and exhibit jointing and veining. The veins often filled with cassiterite (tin oxide), wolframite, mispickel (arsenical pyrite) and the copper/iron suphides, chalcopyrite and bornite. Silver ore has also been reported here. There is one shaft on the sett called Contact Shaft and two adits, one at beach level called Beach Adit, the other atop the cliffs and unsurprisingly called Cliff Adit. The mine worked in the early part of the twentieth century although 'Old Men's Workings' from the past are quite visible as you approach the area. Mining restarted in 1938 after a period of closure prior to the mine being taken over by the 'Rhodesian Mines Trust Limited in 1939'. Trials were carried out around this time to see if it was more feasible to work the stockwork as an open cast pit rather than an underground mine, but this came to nothing. There is surprisingly little information on Cligga although there are production records showing that between 1940 and 1944, 300 tons of wolfram and 200 tons of black tin were raised and sold. 1945 Cligga Mine closed. The War was nearly over and shipments of American tungsten were now arriving regularly in England. The high cost of producing a small quantity of tungsten from Cligga could no longer by justified and therefore, production at Cligga was halted. In 1962 the 'Geevor Mining Company took out a lease on the mine and in collaboration with the Sungesi Besi, Tronoh and Panang Companies started a programme of shaft rehabilitation and deepening with a view to re-opening the mine. Contact shaft was deepened to 550 feet from surface, drives 'on lode' were started both seawards and inland. However water was hit at about 250 feet from the shaft and work there abandoned. The seaward drive continued for some 800 feet before further exploration by diamond drilling commenced. The results were inconclusive, and by early 1964 Geevor had decided to unwater 'Levant' mine instead of re-opening Cligga. 1976 there was renewed interest in mining for tin on a small scale at Cligga, and Wheal Concord undertook a limited programme of evaluation. Wheal Concord Ltd planned to re-open contact shaft in 1984-1985, but the collapse of the tin-market in October 1985 put a stop to this. Cornish tin mines are dangerous only people with knowledge of working mines should enter but then only with extreme caution. History of Cornish Tin Mines collection All music composed with vst plugins and keyboard with mixer, even then had to re up due to a copyright issue and it was my very own work - crazy. 39 views until then. Cligga Mine modern history. 1938 September 21st the "Cligga Wolfram and Tin Mines Ltd" was founded and soon after completion of the installation the rich ore veins were exploited. 1939 The Rhodesian Mines Trust Ltd. took over the company Contact shaft was extended until it reached close to sea level and new stopes were drilled to fully exploit the ore body. 1940, vibration from blasting caused the first of several collapses of the area of cliffs housing the process water pumps (at the northern end of the beach). Eventually, a tunnel was driven to the northwest and a new pump chamber established just above sea level, well away from the effects of blasting. 1941 with the new pump system functional, it was possible to increase production. However, although production had increased, the cost of production had also increased. 1945 Cligga Mine closed. The War was nearly over and shipments of American tungsten were now arriving regularly in England. The high cost of producing a small quantity of tungsten from Cligga could no longer by justified and therefore, production at Cligga was halted.

Right now many of the world’s corals are being bleached causing enormous damage. The Great Barrier Reef could be next to undergo an enormous bleaching event. Mining and burning coal is the leading cause of global warming, and all the scientific evidence makes it clear that warmer oceans mean more coral is bleached and ruined.

A plagiarised mine in Maharashtra?
A bauxite mine in Maharashtra lifted the environmental impact report of a mine set up in Northern Russia to get a favourable environmental report. On the face of it, it's just another mine leased to one of the country's leading mineral exporters - the multi-crore public limited company Ashapura Minechem Ltd. Nothing unusual about it except that the clearance given for this mine is now at the centre of a brewing controversy.

Black Coal = White Coral
On April 12th 2016, 170 people protested outside the office of Craig Crawford MP in reaction to the recent licencing of Adani to proceed with Carmichael Coal mine. This will be Australia's largest coal mine and is located in the Galilee Basin in Central Queensland. The burning of this 3.5 billion tons of coal anywhere in the world would mean further catastrophic results for the coral in our Great Barrier Reef as the global temperature continues to rise. The concerns of these protestors are that if the global temperature continues to rise beyond 2°C due to the perpetual burning of fossil fuels, coral bleaching will destroy our reefs. This will in turn decimate our valuable $7 billion p/yr tourism revenue. Tourists will not come to see dead coral. In addition to the devastation our natural assets will endure, this Adani mine will destroy virgin land. Sadly, the Wangan and Jagalingou people are fighting for their land rights but are being ignored.

See why Sierra Leone's Freetown is a ticking time bomb
Lost Freetown - Sierra Leone, 2009 - The expansion of this City has lead to it being on the brink of environmental and social disaster, and there appears to be no relief. For downloads and more information visit: http://www.journeyman.tv/59357/short-films/lost-freetown.html Sierra Leone is booming. In capital Freetown the population is rising and new homes spring up daily. But, like the 1950s sewage pipes, the city is creaking under the weight. How long before Freetown cracks? A land of wooded plains and white beaches, Sierra Leone was known as a pearl in the African crown. But the brutal civil war damaged the country's rural economy and displaced farming families. Now Freetown is expanding rapidly, but few see this as cause for celebration. 'Yeah we have come a long way', says OLU Gorden, a Journalist here. 'But there has been so much sacrifice for so little ground gained'. In the slums of Kroo Bay in Freetown, children pick their way across rivers of sewage on their way to school. 'You see children holding onto the filth for support as they climb through', says Lynette Pamer, a doctor who works in the area. 'There's malnutrition because of diarrhoea in the under 5s, malaria, worms. They are all affected'. The city's two dumps are badly located, admits John Kamara of the Ministry of Lands: 'They are within the city, in water bodies, close to the sea.'. Freetown is engulfed in a tide of pollution that is spreading to the surrounding countryside. 'It's becoming an environmental disaster', says one Sierra Leone commentator. 'In a few years we will see this disaster come to pass'. Produced by Brightstar Media.

Sand mining, Obama Beach, John Obey, Sierra Leone Feb 2013
http://eimerpeters.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/updated-economics-of-sand-mining.html As I write this I can hear the lorries bounding down the path towards the beach next door. John Obey's beach has been a source of sand for the growing construction industry for almost 2 years now. The quantities of sand being removed have increased at an alarming rate, with trucks coming day and night without a moments rest. Clear as day the beach is being destroyed, the fresh water lagoon is being compromised by the encroaching sea, the trees are literally toppling over without a base to support them and more and more rocks are becoming exposed as the sand is simply being carted out in the back of trucks en route to Freetown to support the development boom. As for the ecology, the sea turtles have not returned this year to nest and who knows what other species has been forced to move on. The social degradation is more subtle however..... Here at John Obey the tension runs high and could be cut with a knife. A serious rift has formed between the people getting rich from the sand and the smaller pockets of people who disapprove or who's livelihood has been destroyed by the mining. Our mission to end the sand mining here at Tribewanted has created hostility between the workers here and the rest of the pro mining community. Neighboring villages are also upset by the destruction happening at John Obey and threats of violence from angry youth groups very real. The local boys here at John Obey no longer shovel the sand, a crew of 40 - 50 boys from the provinces have heard of the fast, easy money to be earned and have set-up temporary shacks on the beach and work 12 hours a day shoveling only to hand over at least 50% of their earnings to their 'sponsor' in the community. Their 'sponsor' allows them the privilege to work on the beach in return for a hefty sum. This new revelation explains the disheartening comments that I have been hearing - EVERYONE is earning from sand mining and that is why it will not stop. Given this fact, of course the leadership in the community will not stop selling their future, they simply do not have that foresight - this is where the government need to step up and see the long term economic value of protecting one of the most sustainable assets this beautiful country has to offer! Of course people need to earn, people need to eat...but what happens when the sand runs out? It is not a sustainable source of income, tourism on the other hand has the potential to provide livelihoods for a much wider spectrum of the population for the foreseeable future. Tourism has not yet taken off in this gem of a country as is currently reserved for the more adventurous traveler. In the 70's and 80's Sierra Leone was the tourist destination for the rich and famous. The Africana hotel at Tokeh has a helipad - soon to reopen - which would receive the elite from around the world that came to enjoy the natural beauty of rainforest and white sand beaches. The war destroyed that market but over 10 years later, peace has well and truly been restored and the doors are opening again for the world to come and enjoy the rich culture and serene beauty of this country. The potential employment and investment opportunities tourism can provide are immense and will last a great deal longer than the concrete buildings made form high saline sand throughout the peninsula. Successful community based tourism at Tribewanted, River #2 and Bureh are living proof of the power tourism has to improve lives. As a result of increased awareness and lobbying the government have recently put restrictions on the two beaches open for sand mining. Hamilton, already destroyed with houses and orphanages falling into the sea, will be open 2 days a week and John Obey, a beach that could potentially be saved if action is taken soon, is open for business 6 days a week from 6am - 7pm, although we still hear the trucks coming throughout the night. I appeal to you to take a minute to sign the petition below and share with your networks. Once we reach 1,000 signatures this will be presented to the president Ernest Bai Koroma to appeal for a change in legislation to save the habitat for the people of Sierra Leone. https://www.change.org/petitions/stop-sand-mining-and-protect-the-beautiful-beaches-of-sierra-leone

🇵🇭 Philippines: Mining the last frontier | 101 East
Known as the Philippines' last frontier, Palawan is an ecological hotspot rich in nickel ore. In the southern hills of the island, lucrative mining projects backed by foreign investors destroy forests and threaten indigenous tribes who live off the land. But mining companies are convincing more and more natives, suffering poverty, to accept mining. They promise to operate responsibly and offer jobs and development. Riddled by subplots of corruption and crime, the conflict has created a rift between local communities, with some saying the environmental impact outweighs the material benefits. Facing the prospect of revenue from a multi-billion dollar industry, can the government balance development with the interests of its people? 101 East asks how the Philippines can protect its last frontier.

Voices from Gloucester - Karen's Story
Voices from Gloucester: Karen’s story Karen O’Brien has built a business from the ground up turning a herb growing hobby into a thriving tourism and farming venture, five minutes south of the town of Gloucester. Busloads of tourists now flock to Karen’s small rural residential block overlooking the majestic Bucketts Mountains to sample the fragrant herb farm’s bounty and enjoy fresh scones and herbal teas. But Karen’s years of hard work in developing a niche business in an idyllic environment is now under threat with coal seam gas frackers already encroaching on her neighbourhood and coal miners planning an open cut pit at the end of her street. Since the miners moved into the Gloucester area Karen’s community has been divided, her once quiet road has been plagued by constant traffic and her family now fears for their future. “Before the mining we had a beautiful, rural, residential tourism area,” Karen said. “I will not live in a gasfield and I will not live with an open cut coal mine down the end of my street. “Where are we going to get our food? Where are our rural people going to live?” Karen is concerned at what fracking will do to the clean water that supports her small business and keeps her much sought after herbs growing and she is worried by the impact of the constant stream of mine related traffic that now rumbles past her farm gate. “I’m worried about water. I’m worried about the flaring and what that burns off. I’m worried about what they are putting in the ground.” Fellow tourism operator John Sergeant who runs the successful Tops Organic Retreat on the edge of the nearby Barrington Top’s World Heritage Park is also concerned that fracking is being allowed to develop in the prized tourism and agricultural region. He says his business had been growing by 10 per cent every year and the tourism industry is worth an estimated $40 million a year to the Gloucester region. “When you have got something so pristine why wreck it,” he said. “We cannot let them stuff our water supply up.”
