US Army to evict Dakota Access Pipeline protestors next week

Comments Off on US Army to evict Dakota Access Pipeline protestors next week

After police brutally attacked hundreds of Dakota Access Pipeline protestors last week , the US Army Corps of Engineers has announced plans to shut down the Standing Rock encampment on December 5th for “safety reasons.” Tear gas, rubber bullets, concussion grenades, and freezing water cannons have not deterred the protesters from holding their ground. Members of the Standing Rock Sioux and their allies are protesting the 1,200-mile oil pipeline because its route encroaches on sacred sites and puts the community’s water supply at risk. On December 5th, the United States Army will remove the protesters from their current site on the north side of the Cannonball River to a “free speech zone” on the other side. In the face of forcible eviction, Standing Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II urges the resistance to remain strong. “It is both unfortunate and ironic that this announcement comes the day after this country celebrates Thanksgiving – a historic exchange of goodwill between Native Americans and the first immigrants from Europe,” said Archambault. “Although the news is saddening, it is not at all surprising given the last 500 years of the treatment of our people. We have suffered much, but we still have hope that the president will act on his commitment to close the chapter of broken promises to our people and especially our children.” Related: 8 ways to help the water protectors at the Standing Rock Reservation President Obama has faced increased pressure to take action on behalf of the Standing Rock Sioux, particularly in the wake of Donald Trump’s shocking victory. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has spoken out on behalf of the protesters on several occasions and was recently was joined by Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM), who has called on President Obama to halt the pipeline construction. “No pipeline is worth more than the respect we hold for our Native American neighbors,” said Heinrich . “No pipeline is worth more than the clean water that we all depend on. This pipeline is not worth the life of a single protester.” Via International Business Times Images via Standing Rock Uprising

Comments Off on US Army to start testing a fuel-cell-powered Chevy Colorado ZH2

General Motors has announced that the US Army is going to start testing a new fuel-cell-powered pickup concept – the Chevy Colorado ZH2. The off-road, aggressively styled pickup was developed together with the US Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center with real-world testing to begin sometime next year. To develop the fuel-cell powered electric Colorado ZH2 concept, GM started with the standard Colorado chassis and then stretched it so it is now 6.5-feet-tall and more than 7-feet-wide. The pickup also gets a specially modified suspension and rides on massive 37-inch tires. According to GM, the army is going to test the many benefits that a fuel-cell electric powertrain can provide, like near-silent operation, high wheel torque and reduced fuel consumption. Related: General Motors announces plans to switch to 100% renewable energy “The Colorado ZH2 is a terrific example of GM’s engineering and design skill in creating an off-road vehicle relevant to a range of potential users,” said Charlie Freese, executive director of GM Global Fuel Cell Activities. “Over the next year, we expect to learn from the Army the limits of what a fuel cell propulsion system can do when really put to the test.” The Colorado ZH2 concept also features an Exportable Power Take-Off unit that allows the fuel cell to power activity away from the vehicle, such as remote locations where electric power may otherwise be unavailable. + General Motors

Comments Off on Obama Administration Announces New Clean-Energy Initiatives for the Military

The US military spends up to $20 billion on oil every year, and as oil prices climb that amount is steadily increasing. But oil doesn’t just cost the Pentagon in the form of tax dollars — it presents enormous logistical hurdles and it has cost the military thousands of troops who have been killed while guarding fuel convoys overseas. So it comes as welcome news that today the Defense Department announced a goal to purchase a total of three gigawatts of wind, solar and geothermal energy to power domestic military bases by 2025.
