*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Astonishingly, the Only Known recent Measures taken by EU Commission and/or Council Nowadays on Medicine against the Deadly Virus, Both on Cures and on Vaccines, are related to Controversial Issues about Genetic Manipulations that may Affect Human Persons !

 - Indeed, on July 3, 2020, EU Commission surprized by giving its 1st and Unique, until now, conditional Authorisation for a Cure against the Virus to Controversial, Twice Failed and repurposed, Former Anti-Hepatites and/or Anti-Ebola (where it made a "Flop"...) Drug "Remdesivir", a very Expensive, Patented to Multinational Corporation "Gilead", USA product, of totaly UnProven yet Efficiency vis a vis the Still Too High Number of Deaths provoked by the Virus, whose Only alleged Effect would be to sometimes Shorten, a bit, the Time for Recovery, Even if this Claim appears too Shaky, ill-Based on Controversial, UnControlable, UnCertain and UnReliable Data, of just 1 UnFinished Trial, (See Facts at: ..., etc).

"Remdesivir", which Costs about ...3.120 $ per 5 Days, or 6.240 $ per 10 Days of Treatment, is given Only by IntraVenous Infusion, inside a Hospital, under Close Medical Monitoring, and its Production Depending from a Licence by Corporatio "Gilead" (which Holds a Patent), has Many Troublesome "Side-Effects", and is Not Yet of Proven Safety, until now, acts by Penetrating inside Human Cells, Affecting their RNA/DNA, and (hopefuly) Blocking the Gene of a Protein related to the Replication of the Virus, at already Infected People.

It's Not yet clearly Known IF such a Genetic Manipulation on Humans, Clumsily pushed by some Lobbies behind "Gilead" on 3 successive more or less, sooner or later, Failed Attempts on Hepatites, Ebola, or COVID-2019, might be really "Safe", or Not, for Human Health in the Long Term... (F.ex. Cloning of Sheep Dolly was revealed Catastrophic only some Years Later)... 

On the Contrary, 3 Other, Already Known Drugs against the Virus, (mainly French "HCQ+", mainly Russian "Avifavir", and UK's "DexaMethaSone"), can be Easily Taken through simple Pils, Don't Cost almost Nothing, and, Most Importantly, revendicate a notable Efficiency able to Save Human Lives. At the same time, they appear Safe, and do Not Affect the Human Genome, (at least the first 2 of them). But, Curiously, EU Commission has Not yet shown Any Interest for them...

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

+ In Addition, Today : on July 14, EU Council has just announced a Surprizing Decision, concerning Vaccines against the Virus, to Exceptionaly Lift the Main Checks and Controls normaly due on Any "Genetically Modified Organisms" they might use in Tests, Storage, Transport, Distribution, and/or Operation throughout the Environment, and even inside Human Persons...

It means that the Prior "Environmental Risk Assessment", Normaly Due for any "GMO" "Deliberately Released into the Environment", and/or the Prior "Consent" (i.e. Authorisation), by the competent Public National Authority, for any "contained Use" of "GMO"s, (according to relevant 2001 and 2009 EU Directives), are No More Required when it comes to Trials, Storage, Transport, or Distribution, etc., of Any Vaccine related to the Virus !

- Only the "Sites where the Genetic Modification of Wild-type Viruses ... take place", i.e. in case of so-called "Investigational Medicinal Products", they continue to be Controlled as before, because of their Extreme Dangerosity. On All Other such cases, the usual Controls are Lifted.

This goes not only whenever such projects for Vaccines may "Contain GMOs", But Also when "they Consist in GMOs" (sic !) themselves... In Both cases, what is at Stake is eventual "Risks to Human Health, and the Environment".

Moreover, it applies Even in case of "Foreseeable Negative ...Impacts" on the Environment, etc. ! In that case, both the interested Private Companies and the concerned States, should Only try to ..."Minimise" any such "Negative ...Impacts" of those "GMOs", by any simply "Appropriate" "Measure", and, as far as "States" are concerned, Only ..."IF Feasible" (re-sic !!).

Such an Obviously Dangerous Measure, (which would Widely Apply as long as the WHO still qualifies the Situation as a "Pandemic", or, at least, the EU Commission as an "Emergency", for All, Both Pre-Existing and New Vaccine projects), was Added Only ...at the Last Minute in EU Parliament's Agenda, (where it was Absent at the "Final Draft Agenda !), using an "Urgent Procedure" for Vote...

Scandalously, Not even the Slightest public Debate didN't emerge among MEPs on that UnPrecedented and Important Issue for People's Health and the Environment, in the relevant July 2020 Session in Brussels, (where any such Debate was Absent, even in its Final Agenda) !  However, Despite all that, there were 5 Critical Amendments, which managed to Attract nearly ...All the Anti-Establishment MEPs, including 3 Political Groups and almost All "Independents", bringing Exceptionaly Together the "Left" and the "Greens" with the ...Rightists of "ID" and Independents, (as well as some Dissidents from "Liberals/Renew", "EPP", "Socialists"-the least, etc), and Resulting in such a diverse Opposition with almost 1/3 of the Votes in a Crucial Amendment (f.ex. about 220 - 470)...

It all Looks, mutatis-mutandis, almost Similar to that UnPrecedented Socio-Political Phenomenon, that had UnExpectedly Emerged, Recently, f.ex., in Italy, when Salvini's "Rightists" had Notoriously made, initially, an Alliance with the "5 Stars" Leftist Movement created by Bepe Grillo, soon resulting into a ...Majority Government, (before they were anew divided, much Later-on).

=> I.e., Tricky, Not so "Democratic" Methods on such Important (even Bio-Ethical) Issues, (Comp. Facts Supra), may, perhaps, Provoke some ..."Bumpy" Political Upheavals, in Popular Reactions, Afterwards, here or there, in one way or another...

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 ?
