    The Sierra clubs chief concerns are that the TPP is taking place under extreme secrecy. No drafts of TPP texts have been released. And public input has been drowned out by dominant corporate input; more than 600 corporate advisors have access to the negotiating text while the public -- even Members of Congress -- are being kept in the dark. In response, a broad civil society coalition has pushed back to end the secrecy, rallying outside the negotiations to promote public discourse about the important issues at stake, and in the US, persuading USTR to open up the process. •Unfettered rights to corporations. Every indication is that the TPP will include provisions that give corporations the right to sue a government for unlimited cash compensation -- in private and not-transparent tribunals -- over any law or regulation that a corporation argues is hurting its expected future profits. Using similar rules in other free trade agreements, corporations such as Exxon Mobil and Dow Chemical have launched more than 500 cases against 95 governments. Dozens of cases attack common-sense environmental laws and regulations, such as regulations to protect communities and the environment from harmful chemicals or mining practices. Read more about how harmful investment rules included in other trade pacts have led to the attack of climate and environmental policies. •Increase in dirty fracking. The TPP may allow for significantly increased exports of liquefied natural gas without the careful study or adequate protections necessary to safeguard the American public. This would mean an increase of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the dirty and violent process that dislodges gas deposits from shale rock formations. It would also likely cause an increase in natural gas and electricity prices, impacting consumers, manufacturers, workers, and increasing the use of dirty coal power.

    From wikipedia: "The TPP intends to enhance trade and investment among the TPP partner countries, promote innovation, economic growth and development, and support the creation and retention of jobs. There has been criticism and protest of the negotiations from global health experts, internet freedom activists, environmentalists, organized labor, advocacy groups and elected officials, in large part due to the secrecy of the negotiations, the expansive scope of the agreement, and controversial clauses in the drafts leaked to the public." Here, she focuses on the rhetoric of US president Barack Obama around specifically environmental issues and climate change, and human rights versus the implications of the trade agreement and the secrecy surrounding it's writing and adoption.

Hot Bites is a Pangeality Productions series of solid sound bites presented with no editing, no b-roll and no cuts - just the essence of the idea. In my work, I shoot a lot of interviews with fascinating people and often they say things that inspire and inform me but for whatever reason don't necessarily make the final cut or get to be told in their totality. So I created a Hot Bites as a place to share ideas with my audience and clients to give them a greater sense of my work and interests.
