#PuertoRico Is Bankrupt, Destroyed, Without Power, Lights, Water, Food, Income Sources Due To Category 5 Hurricane, 3 Million People Affected, Jones Act And All US Union Workers Being Sacrificed On Alter Of Greed, Absolute Power

There are a number of disasters striking both the US and it's territory, known as Puerto Rico. This article details what happens after two hurricanes strike an island, one right after another, and how selfish greedy people try to destroy pro 99 percent unions and worker rights by using the personal suffering and deaths caused by that hurricane, thus creating another man made financial disaster on top of the already catastrophically bad hurricane. 

Early on Wednesday, September 20, (2017) Hurricane Maria, a powerful Category 4 hurricane with 150 mph winds, made direct landfall on Puerto Rico, bisecting the entire island and drenching it with feet of rain. What’s happened since has been truly catastrophic for Puerto Rico.....This hurricane season has been punishing for Puerto Rico. First, it got clipped by Hurricane Irma, a huge Category 5 storm whose eye passed just north of the island. That storm — which had ravaged several Caribbean islands — left 1 million people without power on Puerto Rico. By the time Maria hit, 60,000 people were still without electricity. That means there are many people on the island who haven’t had power for 20 days (Irma passed by on September 7).

WHAT IS GOING ON AFTER PUERTO RICO AND OTHER SURROUNDING ISLANDS WERE DEVASTATED BY TWO BACK TO BACK HURRICANES?

Trump Fumbles Puerto Rico Disaster Response

Summary; Imagine a US state on the mainland completely devastated by a hurricane, and left without power, income or infrastructure, and you have Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico has been devastated, with many homes damaged or destroyed. One inhabited island was evacuated completely due to the utter devastation there.  On the US island of Puerto Rico, there is almost no power, water, or communications. Without water, toilets don't work.

Very little is left of income producing crops, and there is no tourism left. Huge debts (70 BILLION)  by Puerto Rico are owed to private for profit banks and financial institutions, with little to no income coming in. This is a catastrophe starting with 3 million US citizens who have been directly impacted. There is no way to get any help or assistance to them except by ship or plane. 

The ports are open, and there is plenty of US labor on US ships to bring whatever is needed to Puerto Rico. Due to massive destruction of roads, communication system and no power, there is little to no gas available. No one is showing up to drive the trucks around the island, so 3,000 shipping containers are just sitting there, full of supplies, but there is no way to get them where they could be of use as of Sept 28, 2017.

The mass media is spreading the fake news story that the Jones Act is to blame for people on these islands dying and suffering, when that is absolutely untrue. Don't believe the mass media fear mongering that is designed to destroy one of the very few industries in America that still offers US based union jobs and middle income wages to US workers employed on US flagged ships. 

PUERTO RICO IS A COLONY OF THE UNITED STATES, AND EVERYONE BORN THERE IS A US CITIZEN, BUT ONLY 50 PERCENT OF AMERICANS KNOW OR UNDERSTAND EVEN THIS BASIC FACT


Micaela Hoskins FYI -- Puerto Ricans have been citizens of the United States since 1917, when President Woodrow Wilson signed the Jones-Shafroth Act. Citizens mean citizens. Puerto Ricans can travel freely to and from the continental United States without a passport. They’re protected by the same Bill of Rights as anyone else born in the United States. They vote in presidential primaries.

The island does not get electoral votes in general presidential elections. It also does not have voting representatives in Congress. Jenniffer González-Colón serves as resident commissioner of Puerto Rico, a non-voting member of the US House of Representatives.

If Puerto Rico were a state, it would be the 30th most populated — with more people than Wyoming, Vermont, and Alaska combined. Oh yes, and they fill out the same forms as you and I on April 15 for the IRS."

Micaela Hoskins US territories, such as US Virgin Islands and Guam are citizens and can vote in primaries, but because of the electoral college, they do not have a vote toward president.

✅ Puerto Ricans can work on the mainland (here) without a work visa because here belongs to Puerto Ricans, too.
✅Puerto Ricans may speak Spanish and/or English. Mind ya business, k?
❌Nope, a wall cannot be built around Puerto Rico. Nope. Nope. Nope.
❌Nope, Puerto Ricans don't need additional documents to be on their mainland
❌Nope, Puerto Ricans cannot be deported
❌Nope, calling ICE will not help advance the racist agenda. There's no such person as an "undocumented" Puerto Rican...who is also an American
❌Nope, Puerto Ricans don't owe any gratitude for visiting or staying indefinitely on the mainland.

HOW IS TRUMP HELPING IN HIS OWN PECULIAR WAY, AS HE PLAYS GOLF AT ONE OF HIS PRIVATE RESORTS, WHERE TAXPAYERS FOOT THE BILL?


Axios Trump describes the Puerto Rico relief effort with a flourish: "This is an island surrounded by water. Big water. Ocean water."
VIDEO: https://www.facebook.com/axiosnews/videos/2006553452924723/

The above 'statement' that sounded like an 5 year old describing a far away land, was quickly followed by tweets as Trump went out golfing at his private for profit golf resort, at taxpayer expense, again........

WHAT WAS THE MAYOR OF SAN JUAN DOING AS TRUMP WAS GOLFING AND FLYING AROUND INSIDE HIS GOLD PLATED LIFESTYLE? 

The mayor of San Juan was begging for help and sending out an SOS, because people were dying. She was living in an emergency shelter for refugees, eating and drinking whatever they got and nothing more. She was wading around in 'black water', which is a kind word for toxic, bacteria laden sewage filled water, to try and rescue more people, because FEMA was not there.

Does that sound like a lazy mayor, who is complaining about nothing? 


LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA TO TRUMP: ‘YOU’RE GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL’ FOR BLASTING SAN JUAN MAYOR

Lin-Manuel Miranda has taken aim at President Donald Trump over his unjust attacks on San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz.

Cruz has criticized the federal government’s response to the devastation that Hurricane Maria caused in Puerto Rico. Trump hit back Saturday morning on Twitter, calling the mayor “nasty” and slamming her “poor leadership ability.”

Minutes later, Miranda used the president’s favorite social media site to vent his anger at the commander in chief’s comments — and to tell Trump he was “going straight to hell.”

FORMER OBAMA SPEECHWRITER CALLS TRUMP ‘F—– DOLT’ FOR PUERTO RICO RESPONSE

Jon Favreau, a former speechwriter for President Barack Obama, fired back on Saturday at President Trump’s tweet telling Puerto Rico residents not to believe the so-called “fake news” media, calling the president a “f—ing dolt.”

“They’re not watching the news because they no longer have televisions, power, or homes, you f—— dolt,” Favreau tweeted.

HOW TRUMP IS HELPING TO DESTROY PUERTO RICO FINANCIALLY







































Priscilla Willame In 2008, Trump signed two deals: a licensing agreement to rename the club Trump International Golf Club Puerto Rico, and a management agreement to position Trump to handle the club’s operations in exchange for a share of its annual revenue and a slice of the profit.

A document stated that as manager, Trump International Co. had developed a plan to maintain positive operating cash flow.

Trump claimed more than $600,000 in profits by the end of 2012.

The Club eventually claimed bankruptcy leaving Puerto Rico with a $33 million dollar bill for the muncipal bonds it floated."

This is just one of many steps taken by Trump and his 1 percent 'friends', to destroy Puerto Rico, on purpose, financially. 


Greg Palast - Puerto Rico On the Brink And How Trump Really Lost

Big Picture Interview - The devastation in Puerto Rico as a result of Hurricane Maria is on an apocalyptic scale. Eighty percent of the island's agricultural industry was destroyed - flooding is rampant - and most of the population could be without power for as many as six months. This is the kind of disaster we're only going to see more of as climate change kicks into gear - but for the banksters that already have Puerto Rico in their grasp - it could be just another chance to bleed the island dry. For more on how the vulture capitalists have ruined Puerto Rico - and how they could use Hurricane Maria as a launching bad for more of their financial piracy - I'm joined by Greg Palast.

PUERTO RICANS GETTING HIT AND MADE HOMELESS BY DEVASTATING HURRICANES ARE JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG; GLOBAL WARMING REFUGEES WILL CONTINUE TO GROW IN NUMBER AND FREQUENCY

America is speeding fast into an iceberg with it's own version of the Titanic. Trump denies global warming exists and says climate change is 'fake news'. He guarantees that America cannot sink and that he alone can 'fix' what is wrong, by promoting toxic, poisonous, polluting and global warming causing coal, oil and nuclear. 

John Tischler Over 3 million Americans in Puerto Rico alone that may relocate to the US (although Trump will no doubt shut the doors on them) when the islands get hit a few more times with hurricanes. Climate Refugees; if you are going to get ahead of the crowd you had better do it now and pick a place that will be far from the "maddening crowd."

Start preparing for larger and more frequent disasters of all kinds; flooding, hurricanes, wind storms, deluge rainfall, droughts, tornadoes and more. It may pay to move out of areas prone to these disasters and away from the coasts where these storms frequently hit.


Delusion, denial and fighting Nature will not work, no matter how much money is thrown at the fake news sites promoted by the extreme right wing Koch and Exxon Mobil global warming denialists. 

Like any addiction, the suffering and chaos will grow, as Nature will seek to restore the balance via larger and more frequent 'natural' disasters. The job losses, infrastructure destruction, and chaos caused by these disasters will sink America, just as surely as the Titanic hitting the iceberg.. 

Remember that the builders of the Titanic called her unsinkable, guaranteed..  

HOW VULTURE CAPITALISTS LIKE TRUMP AND HIS CABAL ARE CORRUPTING ELECTIONS AND DESTROYING DEMOCRACY


Trump promised to drain the swamp. But how does he accomplish that goal, when he is part of the swamp creatures, who created the debt, deception, fraud, corruption and vulture capitalism, which is the swamp? 

WATCH: TRUMP’S MOB TIES AND ‘MULTIBILLION DOLLAR FRAUD’ REVEALED IN DUTCH DOCUMENTARY SEQUEL

Donald Trump’s real estate empire is linked to an international money-laundering scheme that netted more than $1 billion for himself and his business partners, according to the third installment of a documentary series by Dutch filmmakers that aired Wednesday.

As Alternet’s Steven Rosenfeld reports, director of “The Dubious Friends of Donald Trump, Part III: The Multibillion-Dollar Fraud” Sander Rietveld followed the transfer of money from Kazakhstan to the United States to identify “how this could relate to Donald Trump, the Trump Organization and Trump’s real estate.”

The result, Rietveld said, ”is a follow-the-money documentary revealing the connections between several people in Trump’s orbit and an alleged multibillion-dollar fraud.” Rietveld also noted Kazakh oligarch Ilyas Khrapunov “tried to block” the documentary from airing.

BIG PUSH BY GLOBALIST VULTURE CAPITALISTS; THEY WANT TO GET RID OF JONES ACT, WHICH PROTECTS AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS WORKERS AND THEIR JOBS ON US SHIPS DOCKING IN US PORTS, LIKE PUERTO RICO

Huge globalist corporations would love to destroy not only Puerto Rico, but also what is left of the middle class in America. Their goal is to get rid of all unions, all worker rights, all worker benefits, because it allows them MORE PROFIT. They don't care about US workers, or US unions, or the US middle class, or US communities. The 1 percent like Trump and his cabal only care only about short term GREED and SHORT TERM PROFITS. 

Those huge corporate giants are currently at work behind the scenes, trying to dismantle the entire US merchant marine program and put all of the US workers who make their middle class income there out of work. How are they doing this?

They are using the suffering created by the hurricane to put out the fake news on social media and via the mass media that the reason for the suffering and deaths in Puerto Rico or in any other coastal community is being caused by the Jones Act, which essentially is just American workers on US ships. How are US workers on US ships to blame for hurricane caused suffering and deaths anywhere? They are NOT responsible, period.

Let's dive in deeper and find out how and why....


THE JONES ACT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR TRUMP’S FAILURE IN PUERTO RICO

I have been continually chagrined today to see so many folks here adopt right wing conservative talking points regarding the Jones Act. Waiving and getting rid of the Jones Act has been a republican wet dream for decades now. Why — because it protects American industry, unions, and jobs from foreign outsourcing by vulture capitalists.

The Jones Act is not what is preventing relief in Puerto Rico, Donald Trump is — waiving it — would have no effect on relief efforts. Sending the Navy and Army in full force would help tremendously — Waiving the Jones Act — not a damn bit!

The Jones Act does not prevent the importation of relief goods from other nations. Any nation (e.g., Mexico, Peru, United Kingdom) is able to send supplies directly to Puerto Rico. The Jones Act doesn’t have a word to say about foreign imports. It simply says that if you ship a commodity (this includes our domestic fisheries) from a US port to another US port, you need to use a US boat (built in US), a US crew (75%), and a US captain.

John McCain’s lie that the act doubles the cost of goods is just another republican lie to frame the Jones Act in a negative way. Puerto Rico should be getting free relief supplies from the rest of the US as this is a humanitarian crisis and Jones Act influence on the cost of commercial goods is irrelevant to the current situation.
much more at; Daily Kos The Jones Act is not responsible for Trump’s failure in Puerto Rico.

TRUMP SUSPENDS JONES ACT, BUT SUPPLIES STILL FAIL TO REACH VICTIMS IN PUERTO RICO; BECAUSE THIS WAS A FAKE NEWS STORY WITH NO MERIT, BUT MASS MEDIA IS STILL PUSHING THIS 'STORY' THAT JONES ACT IS STILL AT FAULT


TRUMP FINALLY SUSPENDS THE JONES ACT WHILE SUPPLIES STILL FAIL TO REACH MUCH OF PUERTO RICO

While the White House has finally decided to allow foreign built or flagged ships to deliver supplies during the emergency, there’s another group it has banned from the island.

The Trump administration is restricting members of Congress from making official visits as part of official delegations to the hurricane-battered U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, congressional sources from both parties said Wednesday. …

The office of Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., who had been organizing a visit to Puerto Rico by several representatives and senators from both parties, “is now trying to figure out alternatives to make this happen, as the situation on the island is extremely dire,” a spokesperson said.

“My boss is eager to get down there to assess the federal response thus far,” the spokesperson said.
The San Juan Airport is open, though the speed of flights going in and out is severely restricted by the damaged infrastructure. The argument that restricting Congressional flights is necessary because of conditions has some validity—though it has the notable side effect of preventing any Congressional oversight or evaluation of conditions on the ground.


1.2 MILLION PEOPLE ARE EMPLOYED AT SEA IN THE MARITIME INDUSTRY, AND THE VULTURE CAPITALISTS WANT ALL OF THEM TO BE FOREIGN WORKERS, WHO END UP WITH PEANUTS FOR WAGES, NO BENEFITS, NO UNION AND NO RIGHTS

According to the Maritime Industry Foundation’s Maritime Knowledge Center, there are approximately 1.2 million people currently employed at sea in the maritime industry! This doesn’t take into account all of the employees working in related maritime jobs on shore, such as those in the Navy or those working at docks. The maritime industry is booming, and it is still much less expensive that travel or transport by plane. The MIKC also reports that 90% of the world’s trade is done by ship. How’s that for an “old fashioned” industry? The maritime world is not dead.

Are you in favor of not protecting US workers on US ships, working from US ports? If you are in favor of eliminating or 'suspending' the Jones Act, those companies will quickly fire all US workers, and replace them with people from places like Communist China, because they will work for peanuts, with no union allowed.

IF THE GLOBALIST VULTURE CAPITALISTS ARE ALLOWED TO GET RID OF THE JONES ACT, IT WILL PUT BETWEEN 78,000 TO 1.2 MILLION AMERICANS OUT OF WORK; THEY WILL BE REPLACED BY CHEAP FOREIGN WORKERS, WORKING FOR SLAVE WAGES, IN NON UNION JOBS, IS THIS MAGA?


Get rid of the Jones Act and up to 1.2 MILLION AMERICAN citizen maritime, merchant marines and engineers lose their jobs to cheap foreign slave labor working on US ships, in US ports.

Huge corporations want to get rid of 'expensive' US workers and substitute foreign workers who will make a small fraction of the pay, with no benefits, no union, no protection and no worker rights, as happens in Communist China.

What industry are you working in? How much do you make per year? How many benefits do you receive? What worker protections or union representation do you receive? Are you in favor of eliminating any protection for US workers at your job, and allowing foreign workers to come in and replace you, just because they will work for 1/10th of what you make?

If the Jones Act disappears, then every US worker on a US ship will lose their job, because those companies will then be 'allowed' to hire foreign workers, who will work for a slave wage of $1,000 per month, with no benefits, no protection and no rights.


Did you know that the Jones Act protects US union workers, against foreign cheap non union labor on US ships only in US ports? Funny how they don't mention that part.

Republicans like McCain, Conservative think tanks,  Libertarians, plus huge corporate ship fleet owners want to get rid of the Jones Act, so they can dismantle the last lonely little maritime unions, and replace all US ship workers with cheap foreign workers on US ships.

Protect US jobs. Protect the Jones Act. It is despicable how people like McCain and other Republicans are using a hurricane disaster and the suffering of millions of people to dismantle unions, and get rid of US worker protections. This Republican dirty trick is just another example of how American unions are being dismantled one at a time, with lies, deception, misinformation, while using emotional trigger words, (propaganda).

Union membership has gone from over 30 percent to less than 6 percent in the USA today. By comparison, the union membership is about 90 percent in Iceland, and they are doing GREAT financially speaking. The middle class is made up mostly of union jobs in any country that any person may care to look at.

How would you like it, if foreign slave labor, with no union rep, no benefits, no minimum wage, and cheap slave labor products from Communist China came in and took over your industry, no matter what it is? If you like this, then by all means, get rid of ALL US unions and the Jones Act.

Meanwhile, both Democrats AND Republicans voted in a HUGE increase of money for the military industrial complex  via social welfare and entitlements payments, without any explanation about where that money is coming from. What justifies this huge increase? There is no active state of declared war. There is only Trump generated fear mongering and scaring people with threats of nuclear war with North Korea, Iran, etc. 

AIRLINES AND TRAINS AND TRUCK COMPANIES PROTECT US WORKERS, AND ALSO DO NOT ALLOW FOREIGN WORKERS TO JUST COME INTO AMERICA AND TAKE AWAY US JOBS, ESPECIALLY UNION JOBS THAT SUPPORT THE MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES IN AMERICA


MarEng Sep 27 · The Jones Act is about maritime cabotage. We have the same thing with air flights. Air Canada, for example, cannot carry passengers from L.A. to San Francisco, for example.

Nor Japan Airlines, nor Lufthansa, nor any other foreign operator. A U.S. airline cannot carry passengers between Vancouver, B.C., and Toronto, for example. Other nations do the same to protect their carriers and workers. And, we have the same thing for trucking except where excepted by treaty...NAFTA, for example. And the same thing for rail.

A waiver can be granted for situation of commercial crisis. Foreign oil tank ships were granted temporary Jones Act waivers to carry crude oil and oil products after Hurricane Harvey upset everything in the Gulf."


REPUBLICANS BROKE ALL OF THE RULES TO RAM THROUGH NEIL GORSUCH, NOW HE IS PAYING BACK THE 'FAVOR' OF THE 1 PERCENT APPOINTING HIM, BY KILLING ALL REMAINING UNIONS IN THE USA

For those who need more proof that Republicans like Trump and his cabal that surround him are destroying what is left of America, here it is...


Hours after the Supreme Court announced it would again hear a challenge to mandatory union fees for public sector workers — a case that could ultimately decimate organized labor — Justice Neil Gorsuch traveled to Trump Hotel to speak to a conservative group funded by the same big money donors looking to diminish unions.

Gorsuch’s Thursday stop was part of what looks to be a thank you tour of various conservative groups who helped hold up President Barack Obama’s high court nominee, Merrick Garland, to make way for Gorsuch’s controversial nomination. He was introduced at the Trump Hotel event by a member of Trump’s administration, Bureau of Legislative Affairs staffer Mary Elizabeth Taylor. Politico described Taylor as “a so-called sherpa for Gorsuch on Capitol Hill during the confirmation process,” noting that “Gorsuch warmly embraced her as he took the stage.”

Setting aside the glaring conflict of interest in Gorsuch helping to enrich a Trump property just as several cases charging that the president is violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution are making their way through the judicial system, the group he addressed is funded by the same people funding the effort to dismantle unions that Gorsuch and his fellow justices agreed to take up.

As New York Times labor reporter Noam Scheiber noted, the Fund For American Studies’ is partially supported by the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, a tax-exempt, non-profit foundation that is pouring money into the national anti-union movement.

REPUBLICANS LIKE MCCAIN AND CONSERVATIVE THINK TANKS FAVOR GETTING RID OF JONES ACT AND ABOLISHING ALL UNIONS IN AMERICA, BECAUSE IT CREATES SLAVE LABOR ALL OVER THE PLANET, INCLUDING INSIDE THE USA

Notice how it is only Republicans who are saying things against unions and protecting US workers who are working on US ships, which then benefits America, via middle class workers? What is their problem with unions and middle class workers? 

The White House announced today that there was no need to waive or get rid of the Jones Act, as there were sufficient ships and people to bring in whatever was needed. The only bottleneck was at the port, and inland from there, due to blocked roads, no power, no gas, no drivers.. Notice how very few or no Republicans are talking about these things, but they don't hesitate to blame union members and the law protecting them..

Senator Tim Kaine ‏Verified account @timkaine  We should be doing anything & everything to help #PuertoRico. If waiving the Jones Act short-term helps, we should absolutely do it.

 John McCain‏ Verified account @SenJohnMcCain Sep 27 Shipping industry supports #JonesAct b/c it's protectionist. #PuertoRico deserves better than policy decisions driven by special interests.

Marco Rubio ‏Verified account @marcorubio "Jones Act" should be waived for #PuertoRico as it has been for every major storm since #Katrina Have reason to believe being reconsidered

Outright repeal of the Jones Act law has already been backed by the Heritage Foundation, Cato Institute, Manhattan Institute.

When huge corporations, Republicans and Conservative think tanks plus the mass media are all working to destroy US unions, what would one expect to see?


Union membership keeps on dropping, and is now down to 6 percent from a high of over 30 percent in the 1950's.

Is it any wonder that the middle class is disappearing, due to loss of middle income union jobs, which are being outsourced or destroyed directly by huge globalist corporations, like Walmart and Amazon?

5 Reasons Why Public Nuclear Radiation And Atom Bomb Fallout Shelters Are Still Needed In The USA Today; Why Were They All Closed? Why Do Military And Political Leaders Have Shelters, But Not Public?

SUMMARY


Why is all of the above happening? The 1 percent are working in secret behind the scenes to destroy unions, and to create slave laborers all over the planet. They use any excuse to make this happen. They will use a hurricane and the suffering it creates in order to push their selfish, greed based agenda and fake news stories that the Jones Act is to blame for the suffering. Without using the word union or workers, they blame union workers for the suffering caused generally, and for the deaths of hurricane victims, when nothing could be further from the truth.

Could it be, that Trump is using one gas lighting escapade after another to keep America distracted and focused away from Russiagate?

On top of the 1 percent top down monopolies ripping off, raping and destroying HUMAN lives and the planet, humanity is now starting to feel the very real consequences of global warming and the negative climate changes that result from these HUMAN caused negative tipping points. Of course, Trump and his cabal don't believe in global warming or climate change.

One smaller island near Puerto Rico was completely evacuated due to being completely uninhabitable after the twin hurricanes hit Puerto Rico and surrounding islands. What if the same thing happens to Puerto Rico? What would it take to evacuate 3 MILLION PEOPLE to the US mainland? What kind of military response would be needed?


This hurricane and the catastrophic aftermath is a preview of the future. Expect to see many more events like this, where the infrastructure of a large city or numerous towns is completely destroyed, homes are obliterated and basically nothing is left.


Source/credit; Counterpunch

According to the head of FEMA, there are 24 disasters all across the US in multiple states that FEMA is responding to today. The size, intensity, frequency, and other parameters of large 'natural' disasters will only get worse from here..

Nature always wins in the end. Humanity cannot fight Nature and expect to 'win' with delusion, denial and pro 1 percent 'spin'. Either humanity learns to live in HARMONY with Nature, or humanity will be destroyed by Nature. 

Denial does not work to solve problems. Delusion only creates chaos. 

Suppressing the truth does not work. Greed, ignorance and idol worship does not work. America is falling to the extent that delusion, denial, greed, fear, hatred and militarism is 'supported'.

SIERRA CLUB: "As you've probably read, Maria is the worst storm to hit our island in 80 years. But if this year's hurricane season is any indication, it won't be 80 years before we get another storm like this.

We can't let history repeat itself: we must rebuild Puerto Rico in a way that is safe and sustainable -- with homes and hospitals actually built to new safety codes. With cooling centers, additional generators, and other measures to protect the elderly, children, and other vulnerable people from future power outages and fuel shortages.

We must also work with our partners to ensure that Puerto Rico's entire infrastructure is overhauled. Clean-energy microgrids are just one example we're working on: localized to a geographic area, microgrids would allow critical functions to continue when the "big grid" goes out, and would help power cleaner energy systems like solar, wind, and biomass.

In other words, we see it as our moral imperative to ensure that Puerto Rico's recovery is engineered in a way that is just, equitable, and enduring. Can you help us do that with a contribution of $5 or more now?


I can't stress enough the desperation that pervades every corner of this island. But it's clear that supporters like you are ready to show the compassion that Trump and our government have not. Thank you. Please know your help is appreciated, needed, and making a lifesaving difference.

I'm sure I'll be sharing updates on how you can continue to help our fellow Americans very soon.

Sincerely,

Adriana Gonzalez, Environmental Justice Organizing Representative, Sierra Club Puerto Rico Chapter

IT IS TIME FOR TRANSFORMATION; HERE IS JUST ONE EXAMPLE OF HOW IT COULD HAPPEN 


A NEW GREEN POWER GRID FOR PUERTO RICO?

Tesla, along with its subsidiary SolarCity, has successfully built a few solar powered plants on small islands, and weaned them off fossil fuels.

In 2016, Tesla and its subsidiary SolarCity completed the installation of new solar-powered 1.4 MW plant and microgrid on the island of Ta’u in American Samoa, which shifted the entire island’s energy generation from 100 percent (expensive) diesel fuel to 100 percent solar. The $8 million project was funded by the U.S. Department of Interior and the American Samoa Power Authority (ASPA). The energy is stored in 60 Tesla Powerpacks — large batteries that allow Ta’u to stay powered for up to three days without any sunlight. The system was built with the capability of withstanding Category 5 hurricane winds. See news.nationalgeographic.com/… for some more details.

A FIRE DEPARTMENT IN PUERTO RICO IS NOW POWERED BY SOLAR: ‘IT’S A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH’

“We will be flipping the switch any minute now,” said Andy Newbold, a public policy director at Sunrun, which installed the system. Sunrun, a San Francisco-based residential solar provider, worked with nonprofit groups including Empowered by Light and Givepower to coordinate the installation.

The Barrio Obrero fire station is the first to be powered by the sun in Puerto Rico, according to Newbold, who also spoke to CNBC from San Juan. He said the setup, including solar panels and battery storage, will provide more resilient power than the diesel generator the fire station has been relying on. The solar panels on the roof, he said, can withstand 150 mph wind.

“It appears the federal emergency response is focused on diesel to repower the island,” Marco Krapels, co-founder of Empowered by Light, said in a statement. “We wanted to demonstrate with real projects — with immediate impact, that renewable energy technology is available now and it’s a much more resilient alternative to diesel.”
