Everyone has their own view how to protect the lungs of planet earth. Some people march in Cities, some ppl support various charitable organisations to protect fauna and wildlife in our wonderful rainforests and much more.
From my own experience what does work is to "buy or lease" the land. In parts of Papua New Guinea Rainforests, wealthy environmental loving ppl have bought small individual plots of 1000's hectares and wildlife species are guarded by forest rangers with permission to kill human intruders. In the main the rest is owned by Indonesia but recently tens of thousands of hectares have found sponsorship protection of the natural rainforest and all species. The sponsors lease ex thousands of hectares for 25-50 years with maintenance contribution per year and government uses a considerable percentage of the funds to cover surveillance by drones and boots on the ground. (FACT)Logging stopped and poachers became the prey.
I would encourage all countries to partake in schemes of leasing entire rainforests and using high tech surveillance with boots on the ground....The problem is not about clearing trees for agricultural use. The problem lies with weak world leaders who lack intellect and accuam to ban all rainforest agricultural investment by those with corporate interests.
Hi Task, you might be right about RDSB. I would like to see it retest 2255 to 2260p
After all the US indices are all time historical highs, give or take a few percent. There lies the risk. Will the FED lower interest rate by the same again in September. Its all politics, China desires to be top dog in the world, followed by Russia. I hope my children never see that day.
Thanks for the heads up on RDSB. I like the share but was shaken by the q2 profits. gla
Hi Gents, markets are all over the place. ULVR, DGE storming ahead but as usual out of the winners and hold the duffers. Funds might be the answer going forward. Well done GS with your trade, forgot what it was like to have a gain this month.
Aviva a falling knife or what. Anyone know whats going on there, low interest rates ? Europe worries, surely can't be only brexit.
Germany to pump more money into the economy to stimulate from a declining trend.
I've used solar panels on our main property in Asia for over a decade. We use them for hot water purposes only. Very reliable and service costs are extremely low. We also have shared private roads with street lights powered by solar to batteries.
Never used solar for electricity replacement as the muppets in this hols island haven't a clue, if major repair work was required.
Don't use RE: anymore as a stalker is trolling my posts and removes thread posts. gla lloyds share holders
dreamingof.... if we are at cross purposes, then apologies.
The article is related to a period of 18 months from June 2014 when LSE: RDSB was 2458p June 2014 to 18 months later 1649p November 2015. The article then goes onto say almost a 50% drop in share price but lacks any detail of BG deal.
Mon 08.21 dreamingof.... "in the four months from 1st June 2014 US shares did not drop 25%, they went from 39.28 to 37.82."

Oxo42. Trump aint having the Usa walked over anymore. Good luck to him as he wants to put some money intoAmerican homes and stop the drain game going to Chinese homes. China can buy coal and gas and farm produce to even up import export. Chi na wants a weak America. as does Russia . Is politics and I wish we had as the Uk had some fire in our leaders. Love him or hate him .
China economy slowed to 30 year low17 Aug 2019 07:10
China's central bank unveiled a key interest change today to help steering borrowing costs lower in a slowing economy. This weeks data showed that China's economy stumbled more sharpley than expected at the start of the third quarter. Second quarter slowed to a 30 year low.
Benchmark interest rates have been unchanged since October 2015. " The tool (LPR quotation reform) equals to a guided rate cut, and is only pushed out by the Peoples Bank Of China PBOC at crucial moments" said Dai Zhifeng, analyst at Zhongtai Securities Co.
Zodiac123, On a scale of 1 to 10 in means markets are incredibly nervous. The hope is the FED will lower interest several more times this year. If that hope reduces then the overvalued USA indices will tank. We are probably 7 out of 10, shares will retrace further and going into 2020 moving to overbought and sharply retrace. Markets will give tree shakes and sectors will decline, not in a straight line. We all know with oil/energy shares can spike up on Iran negative news but RDSB has given extremely poor Q2 results. There is trouble coming in 2020, might be 2nd quarter but its coming. A slower growth number for the world means lower demand.
I hope it helps because I do not want to see others get hurt when we are all trying to make extra. Keep some powder dry. gla
