*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- CoE's Secretary General, and NOBEL Peace Prize Committee's Long-Time Member, (former Chairman), as well as Prime Minister of Norway, Thorbjorn Jagland, speaking to "Eurofora", did Not Exclude at all the Possibility for the Prestigious Prize to be, eventualy, Awarded to the Protagonists in the current Talks in Switzerland for the ReUnification of Cyprus, if and when they might Succeed to find a viable Solution to the 42 Years-old Problem, after that Strategic Island's Northern Territories were Invaded and still Occupied, since 1974,  by Turkey's Military troops, until Today (2017).


- But Jagland clearly stressed, in Reply to a relevant Question by "Eurofora", that, in his view, and at his Knowledge, Nowadays, -"It is Too Early" yet, as he told us, Smiling.

CoE's Secretary General said that After having Visited, Recently, Turkey, and met with its Leadership, and Just After having Spoken, Earlier Today in Strasbourg, with Cyprus' President, Nikos Anastasiades, who is currently Chairing (for the Period of November 2016 - May 2017) CoE's Highest Political Body :  the 47 Member State - strong, PanEuropean Organisation's Committee of Ministers, and was Invited by CoE's Parliamentary Assembly as Keynote Speaker for its Winter 2017 Plenary Session, here, where he also Responded to several MEPs' Questions.

Another protracted Conflict, even if in Different Circumstances, such as that of Colombia, recently attracted NOBEL's Peace Prize, for a Political solution.


But a Previous NOBEL Peace Prize Committee Chairman, and its Secretary, have already evoked with "Eurofora"'sco-Founder the Possibility of an Award for a just and sustainable Solution of Cyprus' Issue, according to Human Rights' principles, when they had First Visited ECHR's Headquarters in Strasbourg, (See our relevant Article, then Publishef at "TCyprusWeekly", with Original Photo).

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 ?
