*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- New US President Don Trump's International Policy, apparently, looks much more keen than his predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, to Fight against growing risks of Dual BioTechnology Abuse Worldwide, where UNO's outlets at nearby Geneva, (but even CoE's "Pharmacopeia" in Strasbourg), could play a potentialy key role :


F.ex., New State Secretary Rex Tillerson's Press Spokesperson, Heather Nauert, has just pointed at a "Non-Proliferation Millestones" note for 2017, which places at least at the Same Level of Crucial Importance as Nuclear Weapons' non-proliferation attempts around Korea, also the "Global Health Security Agenda", and a "New WorkPlan for the (UN) Biological Weapons' Convention (1972BWC), rather optimistically calling them equally "Success Stories" :


 - In fact, even if an elementary "Health Security Agenda" had started from 2014, i.e. during Obama's term, nevertheless, still Today, "Yet there is much work to be done to prevent, detect, and respond to Infectious Disease outbreaks, whether Naturally occurring, Accidental, or Deliberate", warns an official USA Sate Department's Note of December 2017.


- It also points "Against the Use of Disease as a Weapon", according to UNO's "Biological Weapons Convention (BWC)", with "a New, More Ambitious Workplan for the Next 4 Years,  leading to the next Review Conference not later than 2021", in order to overcome the Failure of Obama's 2016 attempt, and advance well beyond that, (in close Cooperation, mainly between Russia, the US, UK, India, etc).


 - "As the Life Sciences rapidly evolve, it is Vital that the International Community cooperate to Prevent the acquisition or use of Biological Weapons by Anyone", USA State Department's note stresses.


 + A UNO Experts' Preparatory Workshop at nearby Geneva, has just "underlined", in this regard, "a Shared Concern about the Dual Potential of Biology", and "the Non-State Actor terrorist Risk".


----------


++ Meanwhile, in USA's 2018 Budget, even if several other Health-related Funds are reportedly Reduced or remain Stable, nevertheless, Pandemics, Public Health Emergency and/or Defense Measures against Bio-Threats are Augmented + 3%.


+++ Topically, that move comes as International Criminal Court Convention (ICCC) Parties have recently Added use of Biological Weapons among War Crimes.


++++ And President Trump's "National Security Strategy", just published recently, includes, reportedly, a "Bio-Threats" section concerning not only Natural Outbreaks of Epidemics, but also Bio-Terrorism, and even Advancements in Life Sciences that have a Potential to be Mis-Used.


The New US Administration, indeed, reportedly Focuses on Defense against Both Global and Domestic Bio-Threats, extending to a ProActive Policy preventing also the MisUse/Abuse of Advancing BioTechnolgy.


----------------------------

 

Last, but not least : By the way, New US President Don Trump's 1st Year in office (2017) has Not yet faced Any so Serious Massive and Life-Threatening Infectious Disease Outbreak at the International level, as those Horrible strange neo/mutated "Virus" Mass Epidemics which had Astonishingly Started to Threaten Hundreds of Millions of People's Health and even Lives, already from Obama's 1st Year on office, i.e. from Early 2009, (initially from somewhere accross San Fransisco's borders to Mexico, etc), up to 2014-2015's "Ebola" crisis, etc...


Just Before that, from his 1st notable Measure, on Mars 2009, Obama had Smashed his predecessor, G.W.Bush's August 2001 Decision to Stop Federal Funds' Expenditure for controversial and dangerous Genetic Manipulations of Human Embryos, provoking loud satisfaction from some Big Bio-Tech. Companies, particularly in California.


But withOut any known Result on vainly promised Medical Breakthroughs agains Cancer, Diabetes, Cardio-Vascualar Diseases, and other such Large and Dangerous Diseases, which, on the contrareeey, persist and/or reportedly even spead, scandalously, Worldwide, despite many Hundreds of Millions $ notoriously paid by "Big. Pharma" Corporations to Obama's Electoral Campains from 2008, and much More Spend by US Federal (and Other State Actors, Worlwide) Funds for Gene-Tech. and other related Bio-Technologies, (including also Immune System and Virus research, etc), where, curiously, Human Health-Protecting Science and Technology seems, on the Contrary, to have Stagnated as Never Before, since Pasteur's Times...

Fillon invites EU to invent "New Horizons" behind Oil crisis

A pioneer Franco-German research project on GeoThermy, near Strasbourg, served as "Symbol" of EU's will to become Independent on Energy by developing innovative Technologies, while imported Oil prices threaten to provoke a World-wide crisis.

It's essential to demonstrate Europe's will to "invent New Horizons", by creating Environment-friendly, Independent and Renewable Energy sources, while price rises continue for Oil, a polluting old ressource with insufficient stocks, stressed French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, anouncing that this will be a focus during the forthcoming French EU Presidency (July - December 2008).

Fillon symbolically injected a 1st KWh produced by GeoThermy into Strasbourg's Electricity grid, during a special gathering of German and French officials at Soultz-under-Forests ("Soultz-sous-Forêts"), using a geothermal innovation which is "the most advanced in the World" :

The innovation uses Strasbourg's underground water richness to capture Heat, by injecting liquid among Rocks 5 km deep, where temperature is 200 c. Thus, it can be activated at any moment and location, even without natural warm water springs : A big advantage compared to old biothermal tools.

Engineers, Scientists and the Industry will have 2 Years to invent practical ways for this innovation to become productive and cost-efficient in real Economy, said Fillon.

115 Millions of Euros invested, 15 Research Labos, 430 Scientific Publications including 34 Doctoral PhD, and a systematic cooperation between French and German Governments and Public Agencies on Research, succeeded to prove that the new method works.

Already able to serve Electricity to a village with 1.500 inhabitants, the pioneer project intends to reach a capacity to serve 20.000 inhabitants before 2015, as part of a larger Plan to make all Renewable Energy Resources (together with Wind, Solar, etc) able to cover more than 23% of all Electricity needs before 2020.

- In fact, "behind the challenge" faced with the current Oil crisis, there "is a New Horizon that we can shape all together", by "creating New Tools for the Future", Fillon launched towards EU Member States.

Meanwhile, we should intensify Energy Savings, simplify Transports, and help the Poorest cope with growing Oil prices, until EU joins a World-wide lead into inventing reliable and sufficient Renewable Energy Sources, he added.

Many, technologic and other Challenges exist, but they can be overcome : F. ex. the new GeoThermic method tested at Shoultz since 1987, had provoked an Earthquake at a nearby site, close to Bale, by injecting big volumes of pressurized Water in underground broken Rocks near a Seismic Faultline in 2003. But the move was rectified later-on, by diminishing the amount and pressure of the water injected in underground rocks, so that no Earthquake is provoked.

More than 1 Billion Euros are invested by France on Scientific and Technologic Research about Sustainable Development until 2012, aiming to take a 10 years advance, there where innovation can become source of Growth, Competitivity and Jobs, which, according to some evaluations could reach more than 220.000 before 2020, Fillon observed.

During the forthcoming French EU Presidency, together with our German friends, we shall do all necessary efforts for Europe's World-wide lead against Global Warming, thanks to Energy tools able to ensure its Independence, Growth, and Citizens' well-being, he concluded.

The "Enhanced Geothermal System" (EGS) stems from pioneer research initiated by teams from France, Germany and Italy, joined also by Swiss, the U.K., and Sweden, even U.S. and Japan, since the 90ies.

In 1996, a European Economic Interest Group (GEIE) was founded, in order to exploit Electricity-produsing Heat from deep underground Rocks, including France's EDF and Germany's PfalzWerke.

In 2002, a Pilot scientific project started to be tested in Soultz-under-Forests, 50 kms north of Strasbourg.

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
