Environmental groups denounce Trump override of climate plan

first_imgHAZARD, Ky. – A coalition of left-leaning states and environmental groups are vowing to fight the Trump administration’s move to kill an Obama-era effort to limit carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants.Speaking Monday in the coal-mining state of Kentucky, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt said he would be issuing a new set of rules overriding the Clean Power Plan, the centerpiece of President Barack Obama’s drive to curb global climate change.“The war on coal is over,” Pruitt declared, adding that no federal agency should ever use its authority to “declare war on any sector of our economy.”It was not immediately clear if Pruitt would seek to issue a new rule without congressional approval, which Republicans had criticized the Obama administration for doing. Pruitt’s rule wouldn’t become final for months, and is then highly likely to face a raft of legal challenges.New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman was among those who said they will sue.“The Trump Administration’s persistent and indefensible denial of climate change — and their continued assault on actions essential to stemming its increasing devastation — is reprehensible, and I will use every available legal tool to fight their dangerous agenda,” said Schneiderman, a Democrat.For Pruitt, getting rid of the Clean Power Plan will mark the culmination of a long fight he began as the elected attorney general of Oklahoma. Pruitt was among about two dozen attorney generals who sued to stop Obama’s 2014 push to limit carbon emissions, stymieing the limits from ever taking effect.Closely aligned with the oil and gas industry in his home state, Pruitt rejects the consensus of scientists that man-made emissions from burning fossil fuels are the primary driver of global climate change.President Donald Trump, who appointed Pruitt and shares his skepticism of established climate science, promised to kill the Clean Power Plan during the 2016 campaign as part of his broader pledge to revive the nation’s struggling coal mines.In his order Tuesday, Pruitt is expected to declare that the Obama-era rule exceeded federal law by setting emissions standards that power plants could not reasonably meet.Pruitt appeared at an event with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at Whayne Supply in Hazard, Kentucky, a company that sells coal mining supplies. The store’s owners have been forced to lay off about 60 per cent of its workers in recent years.While cheering the demise of the Clean Power Plan as a way to stop the bleeding, McConnell conceded most of those lost jobs are never coming back.“A lot of damage has been done,” said McConnell, a Kentucky Republican. “This doesn’t immediately bring everything back, but we think it stops further decline of coal fired plants in the United States and that means there will still be some market here.”Obama’s plan was designed to cut U.S. carbon dioxide emissions to 32 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030. The rule dictated specific emission targets for states based on power-plant emissions and gave officials broad latitude to decide how to achieve reductions.The Supreme Court put the plan on hold last year following legal challenges by industry and coal-friendly states. Even so, the plan helped drive a recent wave of retirements of coal-fired plants, which are also being squeezed by low cost natural gas and renewable power. In the absence of stricter federal regulations curbing greenhouse gas emissions, many states have issued their own mandates promoting energy conservation.The withdrawal of the Clean Power Plan is the latest in a series of moves by Trump and Pruitt to dismantle Obama’s legacy on fighting climate change, including the delay or roll back of rules limiting levels of toxic pollution in smokestack emissions and wastewater discharges from coal-burning power plants.On Thursday, Trump nominated former coal-industry lobbyist Andrew Wheeler to serve as Pruitt’s top deputy at EPA — one of several recent political appointees at the agency with direct ties to the fossil fuel interests.The president announced earlier this year that he will pull the United States out of the landmark Paris climate agreement. Nearly 200 countries have committed to combat global warming by reducing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.“This president has tremendous courage,” Pruitt said Monday. “He put America first and said to the rest of the world we are going to say no and exit the Paris Accord. That was the right thing to do.”Despite the rhetoric about saving coal, government statistics show that coal mines currently employ only about 52,000 workers nationally — a modest 4-per cent uptick since Trump became president. Those numbers are dwarfed by the jobs created by building such clean power infrastructure as wind turbines and solar arrays.Environmental groups and public health advocates quickly derided Pruitt’s decision as short sighted.“Trump is not just ignoring the deadly cost of pollution, he’s ignoring the clean energy deployment that is rapidly creating jobs across the country,” said Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club.___Associated Press writer Michael Biesecker reported from Washington.

UN agency warns of continuing severe food shortages for millions in DPR

Shortages reached a new unprecedented low at the beginning of February when the World Food Programme (WFP) could only provide enough cereal to feed 85,000 women and children – a tiny fraction of the 6.5 million people considered most at risk. Cereals are the main staple of the food aid ration. Since WFP launched its latest urgent appeal on 9 February, contributions have been received from Germany, New Zealand, Canada and Norway, and in particular a stop-gap loan this month of 25,000 tonnes of cereals from the DPRK’s own limited strategic stocks – normally used for the public distribution system – has allowed deliveries to be resumed to most of the hungry. A further donation of 60,000 tons of food from the United States and important contributions from the European Commission and Australia will also provide crucially needed assistance, but deliveries will only start arriving in April and will not last very long. WFP Executive Director James Morris warned that much more food would be needed this year if the agency is to avoid further cuts in aid to its neediest beneficiaries after a recent round of severe aid shortages greatly aggravated the already severe humanitarian crisis. “Our ability to borrow commodities to cover this month means that we can now resume cereal distributions to most – but not all – of the 6.5 million children, women and elderly identified as particularly needy,” Masood Hyder, WFP Representative for the DPRK, said. “But it’s critical to remember that this is only a partial and temporary solution, as the loans will have to be repaid as soon as possible from future donor contributions to WFP.” Even with the agency’s stop-gap borrowings from the DPRK and other sources, 1.5 million of its 4.2 million “core” beneficiaries will still have to make do without cereal rations for the next six weeks. Scheduled shipments will reduce that number to 600,000 in April-May, but without further commitments soon, the number will rise again to 1 million in June and to almost 3 million in August. “Given the long lead time between food aid donations and deliveries – routinely three to four months – we need pledges now in order to feed the hungriest of the hungry in the latter part of the year as well as to repay loans,” Mr. Hyder said. read more

Armed Bandits break into Eccles home rob two families

Police are now investigating an alleged robbery under arms committed on a 56-year-old businessman and a 48-year-old assistant manager during the wee hours of Wednesday morning in Eccles, East Bank Demerara.According to information received, the two victims resided at the same Eccles address, but live in different rooms of the two storey concrete structure, with their respective spouses.On Tuesday evening, at about 22:00hrs, the businessman recalled that he secured the home and retired to bed.However, at 02:15hrs the following day, the man said he woke to use the washroom and as he stepped out of his bedroom, he was confronted by five men- three of whom were armed with guns.The suspects reportedly grabbed on to the victim and his wife, who was still sleeping at the time.Two of the men then moved over to the room shared by the Assistant Manager and her spouse, woke them from their sleep, and carried both persons into the businessman’s room.The assailants then used paper tape and cloth to tie their victims’ hands and feet, before demanding that they turn over their cash and valuables.INews understands that after collecting the items of value, the men proceeded to ransack the entire house.After some time had passed, the bandits then fled the scene, leaving their victims bounded.The businessman, however, managed to free himself and the others.A report was immediately made to police and inspection of the building revealed that the perpetrators may have gained entry into the home through a window which is located on the lower flat and leads to the washroom.The said window was reportedly removed.Moreover, according to police, while the premises has CCTV footage, the bandits fled the scene with the DVR in their possession.The businessman was reportedly robbed of $500,000 in cash, one Iphone 7, one Samsung Galaxy J3, and a bunch of house keys, while the assistant manager was robbed of gold bands valued at $200,000, one hand bag, one Blu mobile phone, one credit card, GYD$7,000 and US$300.

Menotti Some women can play better football than men

first_imgDuring his presentation as the National Teams Director for Argentina, Cesar Luis Menotti surprised everyone with a comparison between men and women.There has always been a misconception that football is a sport that was specifically made for men, a statement that Cesar Luis Menotti has very strong opinions about because he values some women above many men in football.The world has always gravitated towards the male-induced contact sports, without ever giving enough credit to women because they don’t think that the females are physically equipped to play any sport better than men are.But according to Cesar Luis Menotti, this is a major misconception about women and he strongly disagrees on it.The new National Teams’ Director for Argentina was questioned about the ways in which he is going to help women’s football in the country with his new position, he revealed that he is going to fully support them in any way necessary and he also explained the reason he believes there are many women who play far better football than many men do.The Argentina women’s national team perhaps hasn’t delivered the results that fans would expect from a country where everybody breaths football 24/7, Menotti calls for this to change.#Menotti 🗣 “Hay mujeres que juegan mejor que los hombres”. Así, el Flaco dejó en claro que tendrá en cuenta al fútbol femenino desde su nuevo rol de director de Selecciones Nacionales ➡ https://t.co/XjJcW9z51G pic.twitter.com/azeVhgO7t9— Diario Olé (@DiarioOle) January 25, 2019Menotti was presented last Friday on his new role for Argentina, where he will oversee the development of all football national teams at all levels from both men and women.During the press conference, a journalist asked the legendary manager what his take was on women’s football in the world and what he thinks about the differences between both sexes when it comes to competition.Menotti’s response surprised more than one person in the room: “My intention with the Argentina women’s national team is to be by their side all the way,” said Menotti via Diario AS.!I saw women play football when I was only 25 years old in the United States and they played far better than the boys.”“The youngsters took the ball with their hand and they did it with their feet. Plus, when we are talking about football as a pure form of sport, there is no other discipline that takes better care of women than football.”“When you are watching a women’s football match, the referees even sanction an ill intention from the opponent.”Raheem Sterling, EnglandTop 5 best players from the international break weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 After a fresh international break just came to an end, we need to talk about the Top 5 best players during this whole weekend.We…“I will always welcome women to this beautiful sport because this is an incredible place to form an association,” he added.”Hay mujeres que juegan mejor que los hombres”.Pensamos igual que Menotti. Solo falta que nos den el mismo espacio. Y lucharemos por ello. https://t.co/gg0b5Ckvwu— AMDP (@MujeryDeporte_) January 26, 2019After hearing this progressive way of thinking that Menotti has about a subject as controversial as women playing better football than men, one can easily see why AFA has decided to offer him this position and hope that female football in the South American country can grow.In the last two decades, Argentina’s women’s squads haven’t really delivered good results when compared to other major national teams such as the United States, Germany, Brazil, Sweden, and even France more recently.It is pretty odd that a country that is so naturally gifted for this sport, doesn’t have a dominant women’s football squad and Menotti is going to work very hard to change that from the root of the problem.All ladies who were born in Argentina and had no hopes of growing as professionals in football, have heard Cesar Luis Menotti speak and suddenly have a greater future they can look forward to.This speech Menotti gave about women in football might spark controversy and debate, but it will also ignite action about the problems that exist in a third world country like Argentina.#SeleccionesNacionales César Menotti🎙️: “Quiero una Selección que entrene. Evaluaremos el calendario, yo quiero fortificar la Selección de futbolistas que juegan en la Argentina, para que el entrenador pueda trabajar”. pic.twitter.com/jsWXuz6gPG— Selección Argentina 🇦🇷 (@Argentina) January 25, 2019What do you think about Menotti’s opinion on women’s football in Argentina?

Stonehenge archeologists find huge neolithic sitecenter_img The excavation is part of the Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project, which is seeking to better explain the nature of Stonehenge by digging up and studying other parts of the landscape that may contain other structures or artifacts from the same time period. Last year, a study was made of Durrington Walls, a monument approximately two miles from Stonehenge. Today, it exists as a semi-circular mound (approximately 1,640 feet across) of chalk and dirt with a ditch situated just next to it. Radar guns suggested 200 to 300 anomalies beneath the ground at regular intervals which archeologists believed were likely long, tall stones buried below. But now that the team has dug out two of the anomalies, they have discovered that the radar was picking up columns of chalk blocks sitting in five-foot-deep holes that they now believe were once used to keep wood posts upright in the ground. Both holes also had a shallow connecting hole that is believed to have been used to help steady the pole in the ground. At the bottom of one of the holes, the researchers found the remains of a cow shoulder blade that had been fashioned into a primitive shovel.The researchers now theorize that the site was intended to be used for conducting unknown types of rituals, but was never finished—instead, the posts that had been laid were pulled from the ground and were filled in with blocks of chalk and then the whole site was covered over with dirt and chalk bits, as if attempting to remove its existence from the landscape. They suggest it appears likely a change occurred, either in religious or political leanings, or a new group of people came in, took over, and then sought to remove evidence of the structure. Stonehenge. Image: Wikipedia. A team of researchers working at a site near Stonehenge made headlines last year when they conducted radar tests on a 4,500-year-old monument called Durrington Walls. They reported that they had found evidence of a circle of buried stones that was much larger than Stonehenge, leading to the nickname Superhenge. Now, after excavating two of the locations thought to contain stones, the team is reporting that they are not stones at all, but are instead holes in the ground that once held wooden posts but which are now filled with small blocks of chalk.last_img read more
