After almost a decade of Alofa Tuvalu’s awareness-building activities and training about local biofuel production, the Government of Tuvalu, in 2009, declared its intent to become energy independent by 2020. Tuvalu’s Outer-island communities having expressed as well their wish to use biofuels, after Nanumea, where Alofa Tuvalu implemented 4 family size digesters, 7 more are being installed in Nanumanga under the USP-EU GCCA umbrella which plans to secure a mix of renewable energies for Tuvalu.

Thanks G and Fanny for the press release

So far Sikeli brought some copies of the “Biogas – What a blast!!!” leaflet with him and it is with us here in Nanumaga... we have given 50 copies to the Primary School "Lotohoni" here in Nanumaga and 7 copies to each Kaupule.

In regards to the USPEUGCCA bio-gas project,we are still here in Nanumaga and so far 2 out of the 7 bio-digesters have produced gas and the families are using the gas now for cooking. We did a demonstration with the Kaupule members and bio-digester beneficiaries today. We will also be having a workshop tonight with the whole island.

The head teacher of Lotohoni Primary School has requested for more copies of the "Our Planet Under Water" comic book for they dont have any more copies with them.

I couldnt blog on our page cause the internet here is so expensive.You two might think of a way to get this over our page for our viewers....

That is all from here

So sad to hear this news but pleased that Teu asked for a few words from us. I feel very proud to have met him and privilieged to have discussed in length with him about so many things...
Below is what Chris wrote on our behalf and we would feel honored to have this read to his family and friend.
Alofa atu

"It is with great sadness that the membership of Alofa Tuvalu has learned of the passing of the Right Honorable Tauripi Lauti. His accomplishments as a politician and as one of the founding fathers of independent Tuvalu are well known, but his qualities as a man were more remarkable still. His strength, humility, good natured wisdom and sense of justice informed his actions as a human, as a family man, as a friend and as a leader. With his easy, common sensical and open-hearted manner, he was, it seems to us, a model of what a responsible citizen could and should be... a rare thing indeed in this confused and confusing world. Someone to look up to and to feel proud of...and to feel privileged to be able to call a friend. We send our love and deepest sympathies to his family, his larger circle of friends and to the nation of Tuvalu. Taoripi will surely be very missed by all who knew him. May he rest in peace... and may his spirit soar as an enduring example for all of us."

Congratulations for “Biogas – What a Blast!!!”. It is a terrific booklet and is sure to be a great success. There is a lot of detail in it, all told in a such an ‘easy to read’ and happy way. I particularly laughed at the final graphic ‘WC Bank’; very clever! With a little luck it will become as popular as the comic :)

"The length of the melt season for Arctic sea ice is growing by several days each decade, and an earlier start to the melt season is allowing the Arctic Ocean to absorb enough additional solar radiation in some places to melt as much as four feet of the Arctic ice cap's thickness, according to a new study by National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) and NASA researchers."

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like last night.

The call to organize rallies against Keystone XL went out on Friday afternoon as the State Department released their report on the pipeline. By Monday morning, over 250 actions were planned and thousands of people were ready to take to the streets in the cold, rain and snow.

In New York, people gathered after a heavy snow and spelled out a giant #noKXL message in lights. In DC, a crowd stood outside the White House and asked a simple question to President Obama: "Will you be a climate champion or the pipeline president?” In Nebraska, folks gathered in the solar-powered barn that stands in the path of the pipeline were it to move forward.

I could say more, but in this case it really is true that the pictures are worth a thousand words. Could you share this image with photos from last night on Facebook to help show the world that this movement is mobilized like never before?

If that’s what we can do in one weekend, imagine what we’re capable of in the weeks and months to come, as President Obama makes his final decision about the pipeline.

Tonight we’ll be bringing together a video chat to talk about some ideas for what comes next. Now is the time to start making plans — the video chat will start at 9 PM Eastern/ 6 Pacific, and we’ll have a message from co-founder Bill McKibben, hear from Idle No More organizer Clayton Thomas-Muller, and lay out some ideas for a full court-press to stop the pipeline.

Click here to get a reminder email for the video chat:

President Obama has the evidence he needs to reject the pipeline — the question is whether he wants to be remembered as a climate champion or the pipeline president.

That means that Washington bureaucrats won’t decide this fight — we will. If we can make enough noise in enough creative, unavoidable ways, we can drown out the voice of big oil.

This won’t be our last fight — there are still many tar sands projects to stop, and a whole fossil fuel economy to turn around — but it is a crucial one, and one that I’m so, so excited to continue alongside you.

Let’s do this.
