euronews the network – Issues in the French presidential run-off

www.euronews.com In the first round of the French Presidential election there was a mixture of tactical voting and votes cast in anger. According to the pollsters, Francois Holland should win the second round. Voters who in the last presidential election had approved Nicolas Sarkozy’s call for change have turned their backs on him. Many of them voted for other candidates, party leaders who will play a key role in the outcome of the second round. What are the messages which voters have sent out? And how will the two candidates use those messages to win? The economy is struggling, unemployment still overwhelming, exports slipping. Security and immigration concerns have led many French voters to the extreme right. How will the candidates sell their the energy policy and environmental policies in a country that produces up to 80% of its electricity by nuclear power? The guests to answer those questions are Frederic Simon, France 24 correspondent in Brussels, Aurelien Renard, marketing director at Gallup Europe and Stephan Simons, a correspondent for Spiegel Online.

As countries around the world struggle to emerge from the global economic crisis, are institutions such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) part of the problem – or the solution?

Nansulate? Energy Protect Insulation Coating by Industrial Nanotech, Inc. Chosen as a Top Money Saving Pick by BUILDINGS Magazine

Nansulate® Energy Protect Insulation Coating by Industrial Nanotech, Inc. Chosen as a Top Money Saving Pick by BUILDINGS Magazine

Naples, FL (PRWEB) April 20, 2012

Industrial Nanotech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:INTK), an emerging global leader in nanotechnology based energy saving and sustainable solutions is proud to announce that BUILDINGS magazine has selected their patented thermal insulation and mold resistant coating, Nansulate® Energy Protect, as a top 2012 Money-Saving Product. Nansulate® Energy Protect for energy savings and protection of building walls, windows, skylights, and ceilings is part of an elite group of 77 products that will be showcased in the magazine’s June 2012 issue.

Finalists were chosen based on the money-saving qualities offered to building owners and facility managers in areas such as energy consumption, water savings, lighting, envelope improvement, and maintenance.

“We are very honored to have our building energy efficiency product included in the Top Picks by BUILDINGS Magazine,” states Francesca Crolley, VP of Business Development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. “The award and upcoming June issue feature will help make tens of thousands of building owners and facility managers aware of an effective tool they can utilize for energy savings. The technology in Nansulate® Energy Protect allows building and factory owners to easily coat windows, skylights, interior or exterior walls, ceilings, and ductwork with a translucent paint-on insulation and significantly reduce energy consumption. Customers typically report saving 20% to 40% in heating and cooling costs, plus the product offers other protective benefits including mold and fungi growth resistance, UV resistance, and moisture resistance. The coating can also be used over one of the most significant heat loss culprits… windows. While giving them a slightly frosted look, it allows transmission of approximately 92% of visible light, as tested on pane glass, which offers the ability to daylight a building without giving in to huge energy losses. We believe this product is creating a significant change in the way that existing buildings are insulated and offers an attractive solution for affordable building energy savings.”

According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) buildings account for 40% of U.S. primary energy consumption and 39% of U.S. carbon emissions.

Q&A: When will Yahoo Answers Change the Environmental Listing to Climate Change?

Question by Wood Smoke ~ Free2Bme!: When will Yahoo Answers Change the Environmental Listing to Climate Change?
In the past Y/A has attempted to keep accurate about what they offer, it is a complete disregard for them to only have Global Warming as a category without it being a sub category of Climate Change.

Global Warming is a subcategory of Climate Change. If one only sees a bit of a fact, they are less likely to consider all the facts, if you show the entire picture, it makes more sense.

Why isn’t Climate Change a category?

100 Cities for Change Campaign Launches on Earth Day

100 Cities for Change Campaign Launches on Earth Day

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2012

Acting on its commitment to increase national awareness of economic and environmental sustainability, the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce is announcing the launch of 100 Cities for Change on Earth Day, April 22nd. This campaign marks the organization’s first national push for individuals, businesses and cities to come together and pledge their support for socially responsible business.

“100 Cities for Change is not just about saying you or your business is ‘green.’ We know that word has started to lose meaning for people over time. We are looking for a complete paradigm shift,” said David Steel, chief executive officer for the USGCC. “This is about provoking and inspiring people to utilize sustainable business practices and revitalize the goal of a triple bottom line – people, planet and profit.”

By pledging to join 100 Cities for Change, people across the nation will be taking part in a grassroots movement of thousands of businesses and countless individuals who are racing to prove change is necessary now and that sustainability can and will boost the bottom line.

The USGCC is also premiering its third party certification program designed to teach organizations best practices for sustainable business while helping to attract eco-conscious consumers. The certification program, which will launch in May, provides:

•Initiatives developed by outside regulatory entities including trade related organizations and    the EPA.

•Step-by-step plans to achieve sustainable goals and business practices

•A trusted certification seal to protect against claims of “green washing”

•Consumer transparency – QR code technology is provided, allowing consumers to scan the code on a business’ storefront or website and instantly see its progress toward green and sustainability initiatives.

“The USGCC’s long-standing belief is that the triple bottom line is not only important, but it works together seamlessly to support the business environment and societal goals,” said Steel. “Whether your business is looking to improve efficiencies, implement eco-friendly practices or tap into emerging markets, our goal is to be a resource and a facilitator of change. Empowerment is crucial to generate innovation, job creation, and a brighter economic future.”

Individuals can join the movement by “liking” the U.S. Green Chamber’s Facebook page and becoming a member on the U.S. Green Chamber website.

“Cities for Change” memberships are available for $ 99 which include over $ 2,000 of benefits including green certification, inclusion in the national business directory, a website proud member logo, a USGCC trust seal, access to a national mentor program through SCORE, media blast announcements, a press release template and more.

About the U.S. Green Chamber:

The U.S. Green Chamber is a nonprofit organization that empowers businesses to grow through environmentally friendly, sustainable practices that positively impact our economy and ecology. It helps both established and emerging companies improve operational efficiencies, tap into unexplored markets and explore new opportunities in the green sector.

I get to vote for the first time this year. What’s the point in voting when the election is rigged for Obama?

Question by : I get to vote for the first time this year. What’s the point in voting when the election is rigged for Obama?
I’m twenty & thought about voting for the Independent party because Mitt Romney will be sucked dry by the liberals come November. Obama can’t even find a forged birth certificate; it took him 3 years. Mitt Romney will soon have a full report on his kindergarten incident where he pinched another classmate. Was Obama even in kindergarten? I’m tired of hearing about how great Obama is at my liberal college. Some liberal group on campus invited me to one of their meetings because they saw that I made the Dean’s list. I emailed them back saying that, “Well, I must have cheated on my tests like the so-called Republicans do. You guys don’t want me in your smart group.” This upcoming election is fixed for Obama. I don’t want to vote for a guy who wants taxpayers to pay for twelve year old girls’ birth control pills so that they will be encouraged to have premarital sex & get knocked up at fourteen. Mitt Romney isn’t perfect, but I’d rather have him in the White house than Obama. “It’s the economy, stupid!” Well, even my liberal economics professor said that the economy hasn’t really impoved since Obama was elected. Should I just vote for the green party? I mean, my favorite color is green just like the democrats’ favorite color is black. Remember, I said No-Bama; not Mo-Bama!

The Ultimate Gift 10/13

I DO NOT OWN THIS VIDEO!!! COPYRIGHT by: FoxFaith Movies and The Bigger Pictures. •When his rich grandfather, Howard “Red” Stevens (portrayed by James Garner) died, Jason (Drew Fuller) thought he was going to inherit a piece of the old man’s multi-billion dollar estate, but it came with a condition. In order to get his share of the willed inheritance, Jason must complete 12 separate assignments within a year. Each assignment is centered around a “gift”. Gifts of money, friends and learning are among the dozen that Jason must perform before he is eligible for the mysterious “Ultimate Gift” his grandfather’s will has for him. At one point everything is taken from him and he lives as a homeless man sleeping in the park; another time he visits a developing country where even old library books are a treasure. Along the way, the movie spins a side story that was not in the novel, adding a romantic interest, Alexia (Ali Hillis), and her daughter Emily, an outspoken mysterious girl (Abigail Breslin) who, unbeknowst to Jason, is dying from leukemia. All throughout the movie, Jason helps Emily to have a great life while it lasts. As Jason works through these twelve gifts in twelve months, he comes to see Red Stevens as more than a dead billionaire. At the end of the film he chooses to use his entire inheritance to build a hospital, called Emily’s home (named after Emily), for cancer patients and their families. He has exceeded the expectations of his dead grandfather and receives
