Tar Sands Oil Extraction - The Dirty Truth
Environmental devastation of the land, water, and air - the largest industrial energy project in the world is extracting crude oil from bitumen found beneath the pristine boreal forest of Alberta, Canada. Effecting a land mass equivalent in size to Florida or England, Both industry and government are putting money before the health and security of its people and the environment. Tar sands take 3 barrels of water to process every barrel of oil extracted. Ninety percent of this water becomes so toxic that it must be stored in tailing ponds. Unfortunately these ponds regularly leach pollution into the third largest watershed in the world. Water depletion, exploitation, privatization and contamination has become one of the most important issues facing humanity this century. Check out my other video on water issues: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMmpg35Bym0 and see my other videos to learn about the dark side of fossil fuels.

India's Sand Mafia: The Dark Secrets of India's Booming Construction Industry
India's building boom has spawned an illegal trade in sand. Plundering the environment and even killing those who get in its way, the "sand mafia" has spread its influence throughout India. Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures Sand is the key to the construction industry, but there is no legal supply to meet the increasing demand. Accordingly, criminal gangs are ravaging riverbeds and beaches. Sumaira Abdulali recounts the damage done to her local beach: "the whole level of sand has dropped by about 10 feet ... They’ve really destroyed it". When she tried to report the perpetrators, she was met with fierce resistance. "They bashed up the car, broke everything. They hit all of us. They broke my teeth." Sumaira now campaigns to expose this black-market trade, which harms many living near sand supplies. Brijmohan Yadav, like many farmers in his region, had his plot devastated by illegal sand mining. However, his complaints were ignored: "the mafia is so influential. They have police and local authorities on their side". Brijmohan began to fight for his land, but ended up fighting for his life. "These people kidnapped me and took me to an isolated place. They beat me up and threatened to kill me if I did not stop all this." Whilst there is an almost blanket ban on unlicensed mining across India, in remote, rural areas it continues unabated.

Drowning for Sand: miners risking all for India’s building boom
About 25km north of Mumbai, along the Vasai creek, up to 75,000 men work illegally as sand miners. Illegal extraction of sand generates about $150 million per year in India. The divers descend to the creek bed up to 200 times to extract sand and on an average earn $4 per day. They are not even given proper equipment. Men die in the process but these deaths go unreported.

Canada's Tar Sands: The most destructive project on Earth? - Truthloader
Canada's Tar Sands is the third-largest proven crude oil reserve in the world behind Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. In 2011 it was believed the reserve amounted to 170.2 billion barrels of oil, or about 11% of total global oil reserves. But the development of Canada's Oil Sands is concerning environmentalists for several reasons, not least the fact that producing "tar oil", or "sand oil" as it's also known, releases three times the volume of greenhouse gas emissions as conventional oil.

India's Environment Destroyed By Dangerous 'Rat-Hole' Mining
Broken Landscape: In rural India, the demand for coal has drastically altered the environment and the lives of those who depend on it. Unregulated 'rat-hole' mining serves the economy, but endangers both landscape and livelihood. “This place was pure and clean before. We used the river for drinking and cooking.” One fisherman recalls with painful nostalgia his memories of the river the village used to enjoy. “Now the people do not touch it. They are repulsed by it.” This is the result of the thousands of small-hold mines in the northeast Indian state of Meghalaya. They have run with no restriction – until now. The National Green Tribunal recently shut down mining in the region at the expense of the local economy, leading to coal mine owners and workers staging protests. With coal in such high demand, India has been forced to chose between economy and environment.

Sand Mining in Bihar: An Industry, a Mafia, an Environmental Disaster
Community Correspondent Tanju Devi reports from West Champaran, Bihar for Video Volunteers. West Champaran district is in the news for floods every monsoon, as is most of northern Bihar. But the district also sees many floods in the non-monsoon months, many of which go unreported, and often, ignored by flood-relief schemes as well. The natural explanation for the flash floods is that the region is at the foothills and rivers from the hills of bordering Nepal flow through it. But the floods are not entirely a result of natural phenomena. Over the years, excessive sand mining in the river beds has led to ecological imbalances, making rivers and streams flood and even change their course, wreaking havoc in the villages along their banks.

11 Things Found After Japanese Tsunami
Some of the craziest things will wash up after a big storm like an entire yacht on top of a building and soccer ball across the country! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 6. A Japanese Dock This piece of debris happened to be part of a Japanese dock that was torn from its moorings during the tsunami and washed up on the shores of Oregon and brought back what researchers believe to be about 100 tons of sea life. Scientists from the Oregon State University state that the 66-foot-long deck has around 13 pounds of organisms per square foot. The dock did not show any signs of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown caused by the tsunami, but it did pose the threat of carrying invasive species. What that means is that these creatures that aren’t natives to the area could potentially throw the local ecosystems out of whack and cause irreparable damage to the native wildlife, such as the dread zebra mussel. 5. A Mystery Creature There have been some unusual things that have washed up on random shores after tsunamis, this being one of them. After the 2011 tsunami hit, this giant white mass had been washed out onto the shore of Japan and had many of the locals, along with everyone who watched this video on YouTube, wondering what it even was? Some thought it to be a brand new creature that had risen from the dark depths of the ocean floor while others speculated it was merely a large rock or boulder. Don’t worry, officials have concluded that this isn’t some new species that’s going to wipe us out. They simply stated that it’s most likely just a mass of whale blubber from the carcass of a dead whale that’s pretty much unrecognizable. 4. A Shipping Tote Back in November of 2014, this shipping tote had washed up near the shores of Seal Rock in Oregon. This 4-by-5 foot plastic shipping tote had been floating out at sea for the last 3 years since the tsunami struck and amassed around 200 blue mussels that were attached to it. Like the dock that was found in 2012, this tote was a potential host for carrying invasive species and scientist eventually determined it as a non-threat to the surrounding environment. Still, the amount of debris, the total estimated to be around 18.11 million tons with 70 percent of the debris sinking to the bottom of the ocean, is still rather high and is still washing up years after that tragic event took place. 3. Various Trash A barge from the fishing town of Ucluelet in British Columbia had carried in around “super sacks” of debris caused by the tsunami. Those sacks are designed to hold up to 1,000 pounds, so you can only imagine how heavy all that weight could possibly be. Ever since the tsunami struck, there have been volunteer pickups in the town where local and Japanese students have gotten involved. They’ve managed to collect all different sorts of garbage such as styrofoam, pieces of Japanese houses, and other debris. Though they’ve made progress, their results haven’t been achieved through smooth sailing. The coastline of Ucluelet is described as remote and rugged which made the cleanups very difficult and the fact that there was already debris unrelated to the tsunami already there makes for even more trash than expected. 2. An Entire Ship This yacht happened to be discovered in the Iwate Prefecture in Northeastern Japan in the town of Otsuchi nearly two months after the tsunami had hit. The ship weighs in at an incredible 200 tons and it’s a huge surprise that the two-story building that is supporting all that weight is still somehow managing to keep from collapsing. It’s hard to even process the amount of force needed to lift the ship. 1. A House As one of the most powerful and deadly disasters that can occur in nature, the tsunami is one that leaves devastation in its wake. Their sheer force can only be imagined by those who have never witnessed what it can be capable of at first hand and even then you can never come close to doing it justice. Take for example this house that was a part of the Fukushima debris. This was someone’s entire home where they built a life for themselves around it and in a matter of moments, it was swept off its foundation and carried out into the sea, along with what is estimated to be another 200,000 buildings.

Exposing The Inhumane Conditions Of Burkina Faso's Gold Mines
Gold Dust: Under Blaise Compaore's leadership, Burkina Faso's unregulated gold rush has had a devastating effect on mining conditions. This report digs deep into the industry, exposing the corruption beneath Compaore's ruling. Millions of people - including children as young as fourteen - mine in an unregulated industry for a few golden grams of hope. Marcel toils underground to support his family - but without the glittering rewards promised. “We all have hope, we hope to earn” he says, but "they rob us here...They treat the miner like an animal." 17-year old Soumaele has been mining for two years. His thin body can go to even deeper than the older men, to places where the air is impossible to breathe and the tunnels are likely to collapse. Gold promises a great deal, but in an anarchic industry, teacher Soungalo Hema fears for the future of children like Soumaele: "You try and save them", she says, "but a lot of the time it’s in vain. I ask myself 'what will happen to all of us?'"

Mining and Resistance in Dinétah
A special episode-length documentary filmed on location in Dinétah; the name of the land of the Navajo people, spanning parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah. 21 Billion tons of coal, the largest deposit in the US with an estimated value of 100 billion dollars, lay untouched in Dinétah until 1966. In that year, Peabody Coal Company leased the land in an agreement with a Hopi tribal council they helped form. In 1974, Congress passed the Navajo-Hopi Land Settlement Act, commonly known as “the relocation law." It divided about 2 million acres of land previously shared between Diné and Hopi tribes. Nearly overnight, the homes of tens of thousands of Diné and several hundred Hopi were now illegal. Since then, an estimated 10,000 to 20,000 Diné people have been forcibly relocated. Today, only a small group of mostly elder Diné continue to live here, and those that remain are being pressured to leave. More than 40% of homes here lack running water. Peabody Energy’s two mines here have extracted over 400 million tons of coal and depleted 70 percent of an ancient desert aquifer. Peabody’s Kayenta coal mine fuels the Navajo Generating Station, which is owned by the US Department of the Interior and provides water and electricity to Phoenix, Tucson, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. What is the cost, paid in the lives of the Navajo people, of the water and power delivered to these cities? On the anniversary of the founding of the United States, we visit with Diné (Navajo) youth and elders coming together to fight for the survival of their culture, fighting against displacement caused by US government policy, as well as exploitation caused by mining and other polluting industries.

Ilocos Sur Prayer Rally Against Black Sand Mining, Presentation of Issues, Feb. 9, 2013
ALARMING THREATS OF BLACK SAND MINING IN ILOCOS SUR AND ITS UNDERCURRENTS Presentation of Black Sand Mining Issues in Ilocos Sur 1. Black sand mining is a blatant betrayal for the People of Ilocos Sur because said operation did not undergo the process of People's Consultation so that pertinent issues related to it could have been thoroughly discussed as basis to whether allow or disallow its operation. Regional office of Mines and Geo Sciences Bureau DENIED the presence of black sand mining, only to find out that a "permit to operate" was issued by their office as insisted by a "town mayor". This is a grave violation of a sworn duty to protect the Environment mandated by Philippine Laws. 2. From moral point of view and from the Faith perspective, black sand mining is an aggression and desecration of God's creation. Therefore it is sinful. 3. Massive black sand mining in the Ilocos Sur shoreline will aggravate the adverse effects of natural calamities. Therefore, black sand mining threatens Life. 4. Black sand mining in Ilocos Sur is a corporate greed that enriches only the few, while it endangers the life of the majority. Huge profit generated from it shall be used to buy votes and to fuel political dynasty. 5. Local officials who are involved in black sand mining can claim that it is "legal" and it is permitted by concerned agencies. However, Faith in God dictates that, "any act that ruins the Environment as a communal treasure, is IMMORAL." 6. Local officials can lure the village folks that black sand mining will generate jobs and livelihood, but the "end does not justify the means." Faith in God teaches that, jobs adversarial to the environment and to the majority is still IMMORAL and a violation of the Divine Law. 7. The underlying issue of black sand mining is lust for political power and insatiable greed for money. Black sand mining is IMPOSED by manipulative and terroristic means. 8. Black sand mining can go on un-abated despite brewing clamor for its immediate stoppage. However, advocates and stewards of God's creation shall stand unwavering in their Faith to safeguard the Environment. 9. Coastal residents, village folks, local officials will be bribed to zip their mouth and lower their guards against the dreaded black sand mining. 10. However, the People of God in Ilocos Sur remain steadfast to condemn and denounce the evil of black sand mining and political dynasty, for these two are intertwined to put the people of God in Ilocos Sur "AT HIGH RISK." In a Collective Voice, the People of God in Ilocos Sur DECLARE that black sand mining and political dynasty is IMMORAL and SINFUL. COLLECTIVE STANCE AGAINST BLACK SAND MINING AND POLITICAL DYNASTY 1. For the FAMILIES: Maintain the advocacy and the protest against black sand mining and political dynasty in Ilocos Sur. 2. For the LOCAL OFFICIALS and GOVERNMENT AGENCIES CONCERNED: Stop immediately without further delay black sand mining in Ilocos Sur. 3. Dismount or demolish immediately without further delay the erected Black Sand Mining process stations at Sitio Namnama, Brgy. Tamorong, Sta. Catalina, Ilocos Sur, for large scale mining. 4. Pull out immediately without unnecessary delay all the black sand mining equipment at Brgy. Caparacadan, Caoayan, Ilocos Sur. 5. Disclose to the public the expanse of Ilocos Sur shoreline voided of black sand. Deputize competent group to study the adverse effects of black sand mining and that a rehabilitation, risk reduction and management shall be recommended and implemented. 6. Those local officials and government agencies found to have been neglectful of their sworn duty and to have violated existing Laws related to the issue of black sand mining, should be dealt with in the full force of the Law.

The kids from Mama Mayila’s Cradle aka the Secret Squirrels Hush Hush (SSHH) go under-cover on an environmental mission to blow the lid on the sand-mining despoiling our beautiful coast. The kids get some great footage from a perfect hidey-hole along what’s left of the pathway before heading down to the beach. Tipper-truck after tipper-truck comes to fill with sand near to Hamilton and along the coast at John Obey, hollowing out beach shelf and encouraging more coastal erosion and floods. It’s true sand-mining provides a few jobs for youths shovelling sand and jobs are scarce but it’s low paid work and sand-mining has such a detrimental effect on our unique coastal eco-system increasing the risk of flooding for our coastal communities surely these youths would be better employed preventing sand-mining and protecting our beautiful beaches. And while sand-mining fuels Freetown’s booming construction industry the kids were shocked to learn that untreated sand, salty from sea water and the iron construction rods - running through the concrete made with the sand that supports our houses and underpins the many retaining walls along the Peninsular hillsides – they don’t really mix, the salt will corrode the construction rods over time and it can only be a matter of time before they rust through and the concrete crumbles.

One More Thing The Earth Is Running Out Of? Sand

In fact, sand and gravel have become the “most extracted group of materials worldwide.” According to Gizmodo, scientists report in a new study that sand mining that destabilized the shoreline may have made the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami’s effects worse in Sri Lanka. Sand mining is also responsible for damaging the water supply in the Mekong Delta. Not only that, it’s behind a crime ring that makes $17 million a month in revenue—the sand mafia.

The world's sand is running out.
The world's sand is running out. You have read innumerable news that the world is running out of oil and water resources. However, there is little known fact that the world's sand, which seems to be an almost unlimited source, is actually rapidly consuming. And that's not all. When people see beaches and immense deserts, they may think that sand is an unlimited resource for a reasonable reason, but according to a recent publication in the Science magazine, overuse of global sand resources is damaging to the environment, causing scarcity and encouraging conflicts by throwing communities in danger. Rapidly growing demand and unbridled sand mining are bringing together scarcity as it is in other natural sources. As the strong evidence shows, the sand of many regions began to decrease gradually. For example, Vietnam's domestic demand exceeds the country's total reserves. If this imbalance persists, Vietnam's construction sand will be exhausted by 2020, according to the country's infrastructure ministry. This problem rarely took place in scientific debates and was not systematically studied. However, the interest of the media has begun to attract attention. While scientists have made an important effort to calculate how much infrastructure work such as roads and construction damages their living spaces and their environment, the impact created by the removal of construction resources such as stone and gravel, which are used in building construction, has been missed. Two years ago a working group on global sand use was established. The aim of this group is to be able to create policies that can be applied on a large number of affected points in the bases of sand extraction and use. The system integration approach provides the best understanding of the socioeconomic and environmental interaction of these questions beyond time and distance. According to what has been learned so far, it is now time to formulate regulations on inter-continental sand mining, use and trade. If it does not seem critical to you, let us also give you the following information: You probably did not know it, but it is now the world's most abundant material (by weight), exceeding sand and pebbles, fossil fuels and biomass. You should not be surprised at this; because it is a critical component of sand, cement, glass, and electrons. In enormous quantities, sand is removed for land reclamation, rock gassing and coastal renewal programs. Recent sellers in Houston, India, Nepal and Bangladesh will cause global sand demand to increase slightly. In 2010, the countries only released 11 billion tons of sand for construction. The Asia-Pacific region has the highest sand extraction rates, followed by Europe and North America. In the US alone in 2016, only 8.9 billion dollars worth of sand and gravel were used for construction and production, accounting for a 24% increase over the last 5 years. Moreover, it turned out that these figures do not really reflect the amount of global sand extraction and use. According to some sources, records of actual sand extraction rates in many countries may be hidden. Official statistics typically report incomplete sand removal data for non-construction purposes. Sand is traditionally a local resource. However, due to regional scarcities and bans, some countries are turning into global commodities. For this reason, the value of kumun international trade has increased almost six times in the last 25 years. The profit from sand mining is encouraging this ration. As a response to the violence arising from the sand battle, the Hong Kong government created a regional monopoly on sand mining and sales in the early 1900s and continued until 1981. Today, illegal groups in India, Italy and other countries are managing sand and land trade. Singapore's imports of large quantities of sand have fallen into disagreement with Indonesia, Malaysia and Cambodia. So, as you can see, sand is an important source of rent and a problem not to be overlooked. This extreme sand exploitation causes the sand resources in the sand extraction areas to gradually decrease. Due to dense sand extraction, rivers and coastal ecosystems are physically altered, causing erosion. It also shows that the operation of sand mining affects many species of animals, including fish, dolphins, crustaceans and crocodiles. This is not the only affected animals. Sand mining also seriously affects areas where people have livelihoods. Due to increased erosion, coastal areas in beaches and wetlands become more vulnerable to seller and wave. This directly affects the people living in those regions. Thanks to the United Nations Environment Program, the media interest in the issue is growing, but the scale of the problem is still not widely understood. Kumun is a common, easy-to-find resource, making it difficult to make adjustments to it. As a result, very little is known about the global consequences of sand production and consumption.
