Resilience since 1950's. A model for Small Island Nations. Cuba asks for U.S. technical assistance in oil fire clean-up. August 2022

Step even further outside the box.

 

U.S. open the gateway, the door for volunteer organizations, associations, and others to provide assistance with no repercussions. 

 

Fire fighting, disaster\emergency management organizations are ready to assist. 


Provide the steps for assistance.

https://www.reuters.com/world/americas/cuba-asks-us-technical-assistance-oil-fire-clean-up-2022-08-27/

 

HAVANA, Aug 26 (Reuters) - Cuba said on Friday it sought U.S. technical assistance in cleaning up after a massive fire at an oil storage facility that killed 16 fire fighters.
Experts from Cuba and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency met virtually on Wednesday to discuss the clean-up effort at the Matanzas supertanker port east of Havana in what the Cuban foreign ministry characterized as a “professional and fruitful exchange.”
Cuba asked for an assessment of its efforts so far and about gaining access to innovative U.S. techniques and procedures from the EPA, other agencies and oil companies, the foreign ministry said.

 

A lightning strike ignited an oil storage tank at Matanzas three weeks ago, and the fire spread to three more tanks. It was extinguished after a week, and the government said it was the worst fire in the Caribbean island’s history.

 

The United States considers Communist-run Cuba, just over 100 miles offshore, to be an enemy and has maintained a comprehensive sanctions regime on it since soon after former leader Fidel Castro’s 1959 revolution.
At the time of the fire, the United States offered technical advice by phone.

African Environmental Watch. U.S. Inflation Reduction Act August 2022

 





Africa Environmental Watch (AEW)
4207 Plummers Promise Dr. Suite 100, Bowie MD 20720



Press Release

Bowie MD – August 22, 2022. Africa Environmental Watch (AEW) welcomes and wishes to thank the government of the United States under the leadership of President Joe Biden and Congressional Leadership for the historic “Inflation Reduction Act” legislation that included 369 billion dollars for combating the dangers of climate change.

This is yet another manifestation of America’s bold leadership in the world, especially for the global environment. It is by far a significant amount of money in the history of climate change mitigation. It is not only a win for America but the entire global environmental community, especially, the continent of Africa that is suffering from the brunt of the negative climate impacts from the giant polluters.

As a result of these negative climate impacts, Africa’s economies are threatened and so are agriculture/food security, an increase in drought and famine, floods, water scarcity and the proliferation of diseases, deforestation, and many more.

According to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the entire Continent of Africa contributes less than 4 percent of the total global emissions that trap into the atmosphere yet suffers the impacts of over 65 to 75 percent from the major polluters such as China, USA, Europe, India, Canada, Australia, and many others.

Africa Environmental Watch (AEW) believes this enormous United States’ climate legislation as a call for stronger action, could not have come at a better time for Africa to help combat the challenges it faces from climate impacts. It is AEW's hope that other major polluters will emulate the bold action by the United States to collectively help save the world from the negative climate impacts that are threatening the ecosystem and human survivability.

AEW’s core mission is “To create a safe, resilient and sustainable environment for Africa.” AEW is prepared and willing to collaborate in this global endeavor to embark upon climate change initiatives for Africa and the world.

Environmentally yours,

Africa Environmental Watch
