Cyprus to build gas plant with or without Israel.....

Cyprus energy officials estimate that Cypriot waters are estimated to hold at least 60 trillion cubic feet of gas, enough to cover domestic needs for decades and supply Europe's growing demand for the fossil fuel.

NICOSIA, Cyprus — Cyprus' offshore natural gas deposits are enough to warrant the construction of a gas processing plant to export excess supply, regardless of whether Israel decides to be a partner in the project, the island nation's foreign minister said Wednesday.
Ioannis Kasoulides said Cyprus is continuing talks with Israel, which has also discovered its own offshore gas deposits, on ways the countries can best exploit their mineral reserves. Cyprus is particularly keen, hoping its future gas wealth will help pull it out of a crushing economic crisis that has forced it to ask for an international bailout.

Time for climate action, 'to build the world we like' | EurActiv

It is time to empower citizens to lower their carbon footprint, writes EU Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard, who has launched a new educational campaign: A world you like. With a climate you like.
"With daily media reports about record CO2 emissions, record ice melts, record droughts, record rainfalls, record food prices, it is no wonder that people get frustrated and concerned about climate change.
When the Commission polled 27,000 Europeans last year, people across the continent responded that they were more worried about the climate challenge than they were before the big climate summit in Copenhagen in 2009. No surprise, in fact.
Of course most people realise that the climate problem wasn't kind enough to disappear, just because we got busy handling the economic crisis.........Time for climate action, 'to build the world we like' | EurActiv

Bulgarian Govt: Greece Delays Launch of Makaza Border Pass

The vastly delayed opening of the crossing point at the Makaza mountain pass on the Bulgarian-Greek border is the fault of Greece, Bulgarian Regional Development Minister Lilyana Pavlova.

"Bulgaria has fulfilled its commitment in time, while Greece is delaying the launching of the Makaza Pass border crossing. Bulgaria has been ready to launch the Makaza crossing since November 2011," Pavlova declared Monday, as cited by the press service of the Bulgarian Regional Development Ministry.

Δήλωση ντροπή: “Ο φτωχός φταίει για τη φτώχεια του”....Να μη γίνει η Αυστραλία, Ελλάδα

Η Αυστραλή Τζίνα Ράινχαρτ είναι η πλουσιότερη γυναίκα στον πλανήτη και πρώτη στη σχετική λίστα του Forbes, καθώς κληρονόμησε 75 εκ. δολάρια.
Σύμφωνα με την ίδια, οι φτωχοί άνθρωποι είναι φτωχοί επειδή δε δουλεύουν αρκετά, κι επειδή η κυβέρνηση τους εξασφαλίζει με υψηλά επιδόματα ανεργίας.

Μεταξύ άλλων, δήλωσε ότι “αν ζηλεύεις αυτούς που έχουν λεφτά, μην κάθεσαι και παραπονιέσαι.

Κάνε κάτι για να βγάλεις κι εσύ λεφτά – μην σπαταλάς χρόνο πίνοντας ή καπνίζοντας ή διασκεδάζοντας, δούλεψε περισσότερο. Δεν υπάρχει μονοπώλιο στους εκατομμυριούχους”.
