Water Politics » Damming the Mekong Basin to Environmental Collapse – Geopolitics, Political Article

Via,  commentary from Brahma Chellaney on how dam construction on the Mekong River poses a serious threat to the region’s economies and ecosystems:Major dam construction projects have become a favorite pastime of some autocratic governments, with China leading the way. But, far from protecting against water shortages, as supporters promise, large dams are contributing to river depletion and severely exacerbating parched conditions. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the basin of the Mekong River, which is running at a historically low level. Known as…

A Multi-Faceted Look at Diamond Mining and Exposing the Truth About Synthetic Diamonds « Intellectual Conservative – Politics Article

With environmentalism becoming a forefront issue in American popular culture, many industries are embracing “greener” technology to try and maintain a customer base. The diamond market is no exception, and lab-grown diamonds are now gaining attention in the media for being an alternative to natural diamonds. While the synthetic diamond industry is being hailed as a more socially responsible solution to diamond mining, the lack of transparency within the synthetic industry has proven to be problematic. An independent environmental consultant,…

Remembering Our Friend – Politics Article

Our community lost one of its greatest citizens. Known by many, but not by enough. Loved by all who knew him. Steve Mager was never the mayor, nor on city council. He never led Main Street, or chaired a major organization. He wasn’t elected or appointed to anything that I know of.   Yet he was the greatest promoter of the best his beloved Waterloo could become. He was a visionary and a bit of a wanderer. He seemed to…

Two Weeks Notice: A Latin American Politics Blog: Impeachment in Paraguay (Again!) – Politics Article

Latin American impeachment is a no-confidence vote these days. I wrote about it for Brazil three years ago and then talked to Leiv Marsteintredet about it on my podcast two years ago. Paraguay is the most recent example, where Mario Abdo faces calls for impeachment over a controversial energy deal with Brazil. “We are going to prepare the corresponding documentation for the prosecution of poor performance. We have to do new elections,” said Efrain Alegre, leader of Paraguay’s Liberal Party, the…

You Are More Likely to Be Victim of White Nationalist Terror In U.S. Than Islamic Terror – Politics Article

On Saturday, instead of focusing on informing the public about the situation in El Paso, MSNBC’s Ali Velshi turned this into a war against “white” nationalism, by warning Americans that they were more likely to get attacked by them instead of Islamic terrorists. I get being caught up in the moment but using the tragedy in El Paso to push your hate agenda against those that love this country is beyond the pale. Yes, I have always made a clear…

Colorado Peak Politics | SUCCESS! Record Numbers Sign Petition to Save Our Presidential Vote – Politics Article

The law signed by Gov. Polis gives presidential voting power to areas in blue. Congratulations, you crazy kids! Colorado voters accomplished in just a few short months what some leftists insisted couldn’t be done. Not only did they collect the required number of signatures for a recall vote on the so-called Popular Vote bill pushed through the legislature by Democrats and signed into law by Gov. Polis. They hit the deadline with a record-breaking number of 227,198 signatures — 100,000…

The Declining Prestige of Higher Education – Politics Article

In the New York Times, Bret Stephens decries the decline of higher education. He cites a familiar litany of leftist presumption and abuse: Anyone who has followed the news from college campuses over the past few years knows they are experiencing forms of unrest unseen since the late 1960s. Now, as then, campuses have become an arena for political combat. Now, as then, race is a central issue. Now, as then, students rail against an unpopular president and an ostensibly…

U.S. Approves Canada’s Acquisition of Australian F/A-18 Jets – Geopolitics, Political Article

The acquisition of 25 Australian F/A-18 Hornets by Canada was approved by the U.S. federal government. The acquisition is seen as essential by the Canadian Department of National Defence as the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) is desperately in need of additional fighter aircraft as well as spare part. Major upgrades are needed on the actual fleet of fighter jets just to make it through another decade of operations but there is no plan to conduct structural upgrades on the…

The Bus Train Bike Lane: A Bus-Bike Lane for the Smartphone Era – Geopolitics, Political Article

Shared bus-bike lanes are an imperfect compromise. They get buses and cyclists away from cars, but also often limit buses’ maximum speeds and force cyclists to wait behind buses at bus stops. With today’s smartphones, though, people have two new tools at their disposal that could change how bus-bike lanes are configured: bus apps and bike-sharing (or scooter-sharing, etc.) apps. Imagine, for example, a bus-bike lane in which a bus comes every 10 minutes on average, but with there sometimes…

Brexit- What can be expected? | Global Matters – Geopolitics, Political Article

As things stand now, there are about ten weeks to go until the United Kingdom will crash out of the EU. There is not much doubt that this will be disruptive—for the EU member countries, especially for Ireland, and for the UK, particularly for Northern Ireland. The attempts to finally agree on a divorce settlement between the EU and Great Britain were realized. But there is little chance that this settlement will be accepted in the British parliament. The few…
