A temporary cross marks the spot where Gabriel Filho was murdered in 2010. The case has yet to come to trial against the alleged murderer, large landowner, and claimant of the property on which the Gabriel Filho community was built. Image Thomas Bauer. This is the first in a series by journalist Ann Sophie Gross who travelled to the Brazilian states of Tocantins and Maranho in Legal Amazonia in May for Mongabay to assess the impacts of agribusiness on the regions environment and people. GABRIEL FILHO: Tocantins, Brazil: In April of this year, 19 families were ordered to vacate the homes theyd lived in for more than a decade, and also forced to leave behind their croplands and livestock. Compounding the sense of injustice residents felt, the man driving their eviction is accused of murdering a community member in 2010. Shortly after that murder, the families decided to name their community Gabriel Filho, after the deceased, to emblazon the tragedy on their collective identity, and to remember. Today, Gabriel Filhos hundred exiled residents are in legal limbo, living in improvised shacks tarps hung on wooden poles. Theyre banned by a court ruling from returning to their community to tend their fields and care for their animals. We cant even go back to our home to get our things, to collect our crops. If we go back well be sent to prison, said Eulina de Silva Sousa, a 40 year-old mother forcibly removed from her home by the police on
PUNO REGION, Peru Life isnt tranquil here anymore. Not long ago, my neighbor came running, frightened. [She said] a group of drug traffickers came to her house, put a gun to her mouth, and told her: If you keep complaining in the assemblies, youre going to be as cold as he is. The he is Jos Ccamapaza , a social and economic justice campesino leader from Colorado, a Peruvian village located next to Bahuaja-Sonene National Park. In December, he was found dead in his truck, a gunshot wound to his head. His death was seen by some as score-settling for his challenges to regional powers. Angelina*, who agreed to speak with Mongabay Latam without her name being revealed, remembers that Ccamapaza always spoke out about problems in the area. Sometimes you just have to speak very softly if you want to keep living, Angelina said, her whispers blending in with the sound of intense rain falling on her coffee plants in Putina Punco, in the mountainous rainforests of the Puno Region. From the two hectares where Angelina manages her coffee crops with her husband Moiss*, one can see the Bolivian rainforest, some of which is contained by Madidi National Park. The border between Peru and Bolivia is marked by the Tambopata River. Slightly closer, and within Peruvian territory, is Bahuaja-Sonene National Park. Its a natural protected area of 1.1 million hectares (over 2.7 million acres) that covers the rainforests of the Puno Region and some of the forests of the

How can environmental activists use social media? Part 1
An extra $460bn per year needs to be invested on the low-carbon economy globally over the next 12 years to limit global warming to 1.5C, a new paper says.
This is 50% higher than the additional investment needed to meet a 2C limit, the paper says. It is the first to assess the difference in investments and monetary flows between the two temperature goals of the Paris Agreement, the lead author tells Carbon Brief.
The paper also finds a far faster increase in low-carbon energy and energy efficiency investment would be needed to limit warming to 1.5C. Meanwhile, coal investment would not change substantially between a 1.5C and 2C scenario, the lead author says, since a dramatic downscaling of coal investments is already required to meet the 2C goal.
The Paris Agreement says countries should scale up finance to the low-carbon economy. Article 2.1(c) of the deal commits signatories to:
Making finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development.
The new paper, published today in Nature Energy, aims to quantify the scale of financial flows that may be required to meet the overarching temperature goals of the Paris deal. It assesses how much would be needed for four scenarios.
In the first, countries meet the targets laid out in their current individual climate pledges (nationally determined contributions, or NDCs). The second looks at meeting the Paris goal of limiting global warming to well below 2C. The third scenario considers a world where the aspirational Paris target of limiting warming to 1.5C is met. These are compared to a business-as-usual scenario with no further tightening of current climate and energy policies.
The study combines the results from six different integrated assessment models (IAMs) to make its findings more robust. Each model represents the global energy system and the various mitigation options for the future in a slightly different way. All...

This fall, the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN), is working on a campaign to have Virginia formally join the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).
Take part in this visionary campaign to pass legislation that dramatically reduces climate change pollution in Virginia, while cleaning up our air, improving the health of our communities, and generating funds to usher Virginia into a just transition from fossil fuels.
Were hiring smart, motivated students for fall internships to stand up and take climate action. Apply today!
The Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) is the only group in the Chesapeake region of Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. dedicated exclusively to building a powerful grassroots movement to fight climate change. Our mission is to build the kind of movement it will take to put our region on the path to climate stability, while using our proximity to the nations capital to inspire action in neighboring states, around the country and around the world.
We are leaders in the national clean energy revolution. In Virginia, we are on the frontlines of the fight for 21st century clean energy solutions. We are doing this by pushing the envelope on progressive climate legislation in the Commonwealth: CCAN is leading the charge for Virginia to formally join the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), which would cut carbon emissions from power plants and create up to $200 million per year that will be directed to funding a just transition away from fossil fuels.
The campaign is called the One Virginia Campaign and the primary components are below:
As we face Trumps rollbacks on climate change policies, we must continue to act on the state level. You will be on the front lines of this statewide campaign!

Essay by Eliza Griswold, New York Times, June 9, 2018
(Ms. Griswold spent the past seven years reporting in southwestern Pennsylvania.)
Jason Clark has lived near Amity, Pa., in the southwestern part of the state, since he was born. He likes to call urban Americans hypocrites. At 38, hes the president of the Pork Association in Washington County, which sits at the edge of Appalachia. City dwellers are consumers, as he sees it; they gobble up resources like meat and coal and natural gas without knowing where they come from or thinking much about the toll that rural Americans pay to supply them.
Theres a term for that toll. Economists call it the resource curse, or the paradox of plenty. Since the 1990s, political scientists and development experts have used the resource curse to explain why countries richest in fossil fuels tend to remain poor. The problem, they contend, lies in the toxic impact of large influxes of cash: Easy money displaces more productive economic activity and fosters weak governments.
Typically, scholars apply the term to poorer continents, yet it affects America also, and nowhere more so than Appalachia. Oil was discovered in western Pennsylvania in the 1850s. And for more than a century, coal companies have clear-cut hollows to burrow into the earth below.
Corporations influenced local politicians and owned local businesses. They set the price of bread and the number of hours in a workday. For a time, these companies also supplied jobs and, by extension, built communities as churches and schools grew up around mines. Yet education wasnt really a focus. For laborers, the best-paid positions were underground. They required high levels of specialized skill best learned on the job.
Over the past several decades, as market forces and dwindling supplies have pushed coal companies into bankruptcy, theyve abandoned towns, leaving behind the ravages of slag heaps and thousands of miles of streams and rivers polluted by acid mine drainage. Drive along the border between Pennsylvania and West Virginia and youll see waterways that are the bright orange of hunters vests. Neither the state nor towns can afford to pay the cleanup costs.
Fracking, however, promised to be d...

Who cleans up the mess when an Australian uranium mining company leaves Africa?
In the introduction to In Search of Space, Journeys in Wild Places, Ross Brownscombe points out that nature writing which explores the poetry and magic of wild places has not developed into a strong tradition in Australia. Compared to North America and the UK this is certainly correct, and true writers in this genre are few and far between.
This book is a great addition to the library of nature writing that Australia has produced.
In the introduction to In Search of Space, Journeys in Wild Places, Ross Brownscombe points out that nature writing which explores the poetry and magic of wild places has not developed into a strong tradition in Australia. Compared to North America and the UK this is certainly correct, and true writers in this genre are few and far between. Some of the finest in the tradition here are probably authors of fiction rather than more conventional non-fiction nature writers, people like Richard Flannigan and Tim Winton, who develop landscape as characters in the way they develop the humans in their stories.
There are, of course, a growing number of authors from indigenous traditions who speak about and for Country. I love the quote from David Mowaljarlai, repeated by Tim Winton in Island Home, who sees the world as everything standing up alive. When Im high on a mountain looking out over country, my life force (Unggurr) flows out from inside my body and I fall open with happiness. Despite our shared love for land, their perspective is going to be different to an Anglo author. Whereas Country is peopled and storied for many Aboriginal and Islander people, us Australians of European linage often seek refuge in the blank space that wild spaces represent. We go into them to find adventure and challenge, solitude, recreation, perspective, spiritual guidance and, sometimes all these things. Our relationship is profoundly different because we must create something from what is essentially a blank canvas when it comes to culture. Trying to compare a book on nature writing by an Anglo man with an indigenous author in any meaningful way is beyond me in a short review so I wont try, beyond noting that all Australia is indigenous land, even those places that we have declared wild or wilderness, with the few exceptions of orphan country, land with no people left with connection to or responsibility for that place.
JAKARTA Environmental officials have warned of the potentially catastrophic impact of a planned gold mine in a conservation zone in eastern Indonesia, amid mixed signals from the district chief responsible for approving the project. The proposed mine would cover 233 square kilometers (90 square miles), an area four times the size of Manhattan, in Wondama Bay district in West Papua province. Eighty five percent of the district, though, sits within Cenderawasih Bay National Park, while parts of it also overlap onto or border the Wondiwoi Mountains Nature Reserve both protected areas. The planned site also straddles the ancestral lands of three indigenous groups: the Kuri Wamesa, the Rasiei and the Naikere The company applying for the mining permit, PT Abisha Bumi Persada (ABP), is based some 3,000 kilometers (1,860 miles) west, in the city of Bandung on the island of Java. It reportedly plans to operate for 15 years, and expects to mine 800,000 tons of ore per year, yielding 200 kilograms (440 pounds) of gold annually. A company in Indonesia plans to mine for gold in Wondama Bay district in West Papua province, with the proposed site marked by the red pin. Much of the district falls within Cenderawasih Bay National Park, a protected area. Image by Google Maps. Ben Saroy, head of the agency that manages Cenderawasih Bay National Park, warned that establishing a large-scale gold mine like ABP has proposed could damage the wider conservation area. Among his top concerns, he said, was the waste

The Animal Liberation Front has claimed responsibility for an arson and sabotage targeting facilities in Irua/Pamplona that will be used during the festival of San Fermin. During the night of June 6-7, a forklift was set on fire, anti-bullfighting messages painted and other damage caused inside the Corrales del Gas, enclosures for bulls who will run in the encierro (running of the bulls) and be killed in the bullring during the festival. Earlier in the week, 13 holes used for the placement of fence posts along the route of the bull run were filled with cement.
Anonymous communique (translation):
Every year in the city of Pamplona, under the rusty umbrellas of tradition and festivities, more than 40 bulls are killed. More than 40 animals will face a painful and agonizing end in the streets and bullring of this city. For these animals, the Corralillo del Gas becomes their corridor of death, and the fence becomes their cage: some waiting days for their turn to arrive, they pass from the bad drink of the morning confinement and the painful death of the bullfight in the afternoon, and although the fact of killing these animals seems neither more cruel nor more unnecessary than the exploitation, use and systematized murder of millions of animals around the world for consumption, experimentation, clothing or leisure, we believe it is necessary to take measures to end this cruel act that takes place in the city of Pamplona
For reasons that we consider more than obvious and sufficient, and that we will not go into explaining now, we consider legitimate:
All kinds of protest and struggle against the suffering we cause to animals.
Liberating animals from their confinement and providing them a decent home.
Recording or obtaining images to expose conditions in which animals are kept.
The boycott of companies and institutions that contribute to the abuse of animals.

A member of West Virginias negotiating team on the $80 billion natural gas investment deal with China was asked to repay $23,000 in travel expenses after the Justice administration raised questions about a potential conflict of interest, the governor revealed Friday.
Last November, President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping looked on in Beijing as officials from the Mountain State and a Chinese energy company signed what was hailed as a landmark deal for West Virginia.
Under the deal, China Energy Investment Corp. would invest more than $80 billion over the next 20 years in West Virginias natural gas industry.
Gov. Jim Justice and other state leaders have been banking on the China deal, predicting it will create tens of thousands of additional jobs in the state. It also was described as a victory for Trump, the largest in a series of Chinese investments in the United States that totaled $250 billion.
But on Friday, Justice revealed an ethical cloud over the China deal: At least one member of the states trade delegation an industry executive was also working to help his private company.
Brian Abraham, the governors general counsel, said the state was using someone who probably shouldnt have been involved in the negotiations as part of its trade delegation.
People that were there in China maybe representing their own special interests, we didnt think was right, the governor added.
West Virginia officials are eager to see the fruits of the China Energy investment, as a cornerstone to the natural gas industrys continued growth in the state. But along the way, some lawmakers and watchdogs are questioning whether the state is putting the industrys interests ahead of the public concerns about broadening the states...
