Left: #Flooding caused by #monsoons in #Arizona has broken the floodgates on portions of the #Trump #BorderWall, separating metal panels from their hinges and leaving huge openings in the barrier. The border #Wall done in by #ClimateChange. #Irony.

Right: the incomplete #Wall at the #SouthernBorder, now, on indefinite hiatus due to a court ruling.

A federal judge ruled that the Department of #HomelandSecurity and U.S. #CustomsAndBorderProtection violated federal law by failing to analyze potential #environmental harms from escalating militarization along the #US-#Mexico #border.

“The Trump administration built its unpopular #BorderWall by ignoring dozens of federal laws, destroying #PublicLands, attacking #NativeAmerican #history, and wasting BILLIONS of #Dollars of public #money," said the Chair of the #HouseNaturalResourcesCommittee.

Beyond jeopardizing #wildlife, #EndangeredSpecies, and public lands, ongoing border #militarization damages #HumanRights, #CivilLiberties, #NativeLands, #LocalBusinesses, and #InternationalRelations.

The US #FishAndWildlifeService has designated critical #habitat under the #EndangeredSpeciesAct within 50 miles of the #SouthernBorder for more than 25 species, including #jaguars, #ocelots, #Mexican gray #wolves, and cactus ferruginous pygmy #owls.

Water is Now Being Traded as a Commodity Amid Fear of Scarcity

#Water is, now, being traded as a #commodity amid fear of #scarcity.

Water has joined #gold, #oil, and other #commodities that are traded on #markets, as worries about the uncertainty of its availability in the future rises. The #US #WaterTradeMarket, the first of its kind, was launched on the #ChicagoMercantileExchange with $1.1 BILLION in contracts tied to #California #WaterPrices. This market has allowed #farmers, #HedgeFunds, and #municipalities to #Hedge AGAINST future #WaterAvailability in California.

The new scheme was announced in October 2020, triggered by the region's severe #Heat, #Wildfires, and #Droughts. While this could clear up #uncertainty around water prices, treating water as a tradeable commodity puts basic #HumanRights in the hands of #FinancialInstitutions and #investors.

A #Chinese-backed consortium is developing transport infrastructure for a massive iron ore #mine in #Guinea, the home to nearly 2/3 of the remaining estimated 52,800 Western #chimpanzees in the wild.

#GuineaRail builders blast in chimpanzee #habitat, the home to tens of thousands of #apes, with no plan to protect them.

The #InternationalUnionForConservationOfNature said in 2016 the Western chimpanzee population had declined by 80% from 1990 to 2014. The main threats are #HabitatLoss, #Poaching, and #disease.

#Chimpanzees are our closest living relatives. We share 99% of our #DNA with these #intelligent, #sentient #primates.

The #deforestation that is destroying their habitat, also, reduces the number of #trees that can help combat #CarbonEmissions. They are the #CanaryInTheCoalMine.

The #GulfStream is slowing to a "tipping point', and could disappear.

The Gulf Stream brings warm #water from #Florida across the #Atlantic, making life possible in Northern #European countries like the #UnitedKingdom.

The Gulf Stream — one of #Earth's major #climate-regulating #ocean currents — is moving slower than it has in thousands of years, a new study suggests. Human-induced #ClimateChange is largely to blame, as #IceSheets in #Greenland and other locations melt, changing the ocean's #temperature, #density, and #salinity, while causing #SeaLevelRise.
