The Copenhagen Declaration: on including Geologial Survey expertise in the assessment of Shale Gas in Europe

On 25th September, 2014, the North Atlantic Group of the European Geological Surveys published their concerns on the socio-political consequences of misleading media reports on the exploration and exploitation of raw materials. Above all their concerns are with regard to shale gas as an option for domestic energy supply. In their Copenhagen Declaration on the ‚Provision of Data for National Shale Gas Assessments’, the Geological Surveys are critical of some reporting; they feel that scientific results and conclusions are often short-changed or ignored. In particular they highlight concern that their expertise may be excluded from future decision making on raw material supply. Continue reading

Article  about Jolynn Minnaar on Broadsheet.ie. The title of the article is a play on the words Mná na hÉireann (Women of Ireland) (pronounced mnaw na hair-inn).

Irish

Mná na hÉireann

Tá bean in Éirinn a phronnfadh séad domh is mo sháith le n-ól
Is tá bean in Éirinn is ba bhinne léithe mo ráfla ceoil
Ná seinm théad; atá bean in Éirinn is níorbh fhearr léi beo
Mise ag léimnigh nó leagtha i gcré is mo thárr faoi fhód

Tá bean in Éirinn a bheadh ag éad liom mur’ bhfaighfinn ach póg
Ó bhean ar aonach, nach ait an scéala, is mo dháimh féin leo;
Tá bean ab fhearr liom nó cath is céad dhíobh nach bhfagham go deo
Is tá cailín spéiriúil ag fear gan Bhéarla, dubhghránna cróin.

Tá bean a déarfadh dá siulfainn léi go bhfaighinn an t-ór,
Is tá bean ‘na léine is is fearr a méin ná na táinte bó
Le bean a bhuairfeadh Baile an Mhaoir is clár Thír Eoghain,
Is ní fheicim leigheas ar mo ghalar féin ach scaird a dh’ól
