What can be done about rising sea levels

first_imgIt has been more than a third of a century since climate scientists in both the United States and Britain began to publish papers showing that accumulating greenhouse gases in the atmosphere were raising temperatures around the world. (“Climate Impact of Increasing Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide,” James E. Hansen et al., Science, 1981; “Variations of Surface Air Temperatures. Part I: Northern Hemisphere, 1881-1980,” P.D. Jones et al., Monthly Weather Review, 1982)Today, this view is universally accepted in the scientific community. The disastrous impact of global warming has been documented and made evident in more destructive storms, the melting of the polar icecaps and glaciers, heat waves and desertification. Many attempts have been made to reach binding agreements to slow down and ultimately reverse this warming trend. The first was the Kyoto Protocol of 1997, which was signed by the Clinton administration in 1998 but never submitted to Congress. Former President George W. Bush in March 2001 rejected the protocol, leaving the accord dead in the water.Last year came the Paris Accords, which President Barack Obama has endorsed but has also not submitted to Congress, which would likely shoot them down.Now comes a projection by a group of climate scientists, led by Hansen, saying that the continued rise in temperatures will lead to a collapse in polar ice sheets and a subsequent rise in global sea levels that would put major coastal cities of the world under water by the end of this century. (“Ice Melt, Sea Level Rise and Superstorms,” Hansen et al., Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, March 22)At this moment the U.S. is fighting several wars in West Asia and parts of Africa where oil — a major source of greenhouse gas — is the ultimate prize. Its closest allies in the area, in addition to other imperialist NATO countries and Israel, are Saudi Arabia, Egypt and U.S.-imposed regimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. These costly wars for oil have taken a terrible toll on the peoples of the region — and also on the environment.U.S. governments — both Democratic and Republican — claim to be part of the worldwide push to cut CO2 emissions and save the planet, yet have done very little. The current election campaign carries this forward. The Republican candidates, of course, have nothing useful to say about the looming dangers, if they even address the question. The Clinton camp wants to sound pro-environmental but has no concrete proposals. The Sanders campaign says the most about environmental issues. To be implemented, its solutions would require a massive, revolutionary restructuring of the U.S. economy. The “political revolution” Bernie Sanders talks about would require a social revolution — meaning the workers and oppressed taking over the means of production — to accomplish this.China planning for greener worldDoes that mean there’s no hope? No, climate change CAN be reversed. It is possible. Take, for example, this report by NBC News on March 31 entitled “China Unveils Proposal for $50 Trillion Global Electricity Network”: “China has unveiled a proposal for a $50 trillion global electricity network that would help fight pollution and the effects of climate change.“The plan envisions linking existing and future solar farms, wind turbines and electricity plants in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas, according to the head of State Grid Corporation of China. The proposal is in its initial stages and would require huge investment from around the world. If it goes ahead, it would be the world’s largest infrastructure project. It could be operational by 2050, according to backers. …“The State Grid Corporation of China envisions a future ‘global village’ of efficient transmission lines to tap and distribute electricity from giant solar farms around the equator and wind stations in the Arctic, according to its website. [State Grid President] Liu [Zhenya] estimated that the global network could mean clean energy comprising 80 percent of global consumption, displacing fossil fuels as Earth’s principal energy source.“China’s government invests more than any other country in wind and solar energy. Energy transmission technology ‘has matured and clean energy is becoming more economical, so the conditions for building global power interconnection already exist,’ Liu said in a statement on the company’s website.”Sanders’ energy program calls for making clean energy 80 percent of all energy consumed by 2050 in the U.S. If Sanders is serious about tackling global warming, then his camp should welcome this proposal by the government-owned State Grid Corporation of China, which has a plan to make that happen on a global scale. But Sanders’ program regarding China is extremely negative, blaming China, not U.S. capitalist billionaires, for job losses in the U.S., while criticizing China’s “military buildup” and “human rights” record. (See Sanders’ website on China; is possible to turn back global warming. China has come up with a concrete plan; it has the resources and the will to spearhead such an effort. But other countries need to unite with China for that to happen. Can anything less than a real revolution make the United States join the rest of the world in saving the planet?Part 1: Global warming, nuclear power and ChinaPart 2: China moves decisively on global warmingPart 3: Coal miners in crisisPart 4: What can be done about rising sea levelsFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Hoosier Corn Crop to get Nice Boost from Warmer Temperatures

first_img Previous articleMiss Pulaski County wins Indiana State Fair Queen PageantNext articleWhite Paper Encourages Use of USDA Programs for Energy Efficiency Projects Andy Eubank Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Very cool nights and some cool days during July and August have made for a comfortable summer. But how is that cool stretch affecting Indiana corn and soybeans? Dr. Terry Semmel is a Distinguished Field Scientist for Monsanto based at their Lafayette, IN research farm at the Purdue agronomy farm. He tells HAT those crops that look so good across the state really might produce well come harvest.“It is a positive trend. Every time we have plants that are looking good then generally we have the assumption that the underlying basics are favorable for plant growth, and that’s good for soybean production as well as corn production. In corn, I think in general the crop is a little bit taller, a little bit bigger and a little bit greener than it has been the last couple years, certainly more than 2012. If we have enough heat to get to a good drying position at our first fall harvest it could compete with one of our top yielding years on record.”So what is the impact of this cool period right now?“From a growing degree unit perspective we are capturing fewer per day,” he told HAT. “That’s probably good for dry weight accumulation. It’s probably not real favorable for maturing the crop on time, so we’re carrying a little more risk as the days go by of having wetter corn on the day of harvest. However it’s favorable for grain yields, a little bit dis-favorable for grain moisture at harvest.”And Semmel says the cool nights, some below 50 degrees, haven’t generally been real detrimental yet to either corn or soybeans.“It’s probably a little more detrimental to soybeans than it is corn. Corn being a C4 plant will rebound and photosynthetic active radiation will increase photosynthesis output quicker in a C4 plant than C3, so we will be able to probably compensate for that in corn. I think that daily highs in the next 30 days is going to tell the story in corn, and if we get down into the mid 40’s in soy at night, then we’re going to start impeding photosynthetic output. So I’m a little bit concerned about the cold temperatures at night in soy and I’m worried about getting enough heat during the day in corn.”He adds the expected warm-up to the mid 80’s to low 90’s this week will go a long way toward helping the corn crop get back on track for an on-time finish this year.

Ethanol Industry Still Fighting for Lost Volumes Due to Waivers

first_img SHARE SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Jul 15, 2018 Facebook Twitter Corn Growers and the ethanol industry aren’t giving up yet on getting EPA to offset demand lost to oil refiner RFS waivers, even after the agency dropped a plan to do just that. National Corn Growers’ Kathy Bergren predicts farmers will weigh in heavily on the pending 2019 RFS rule.“I think farmers well insist to EPA that EPA needs to use this volumes rule for the RFS to fix the damage that EPA has done through the small refinery exemptions.”Boxing ethanol in, Bergren complains, at 10-percent, killing incentive to use more or produce higher blends in gasoline and adding to existing demand losses.“Scott Irwin at the University of Illinois released some additional calculations on these numbers. He estimates that that means for the 2007 that that reduced the 15 billion gallon RVO for ethanol by 1.1 billion gallons.”At the Renewable Fuels Association, Geoff Cooper says EPA now admits it can make up volume lost to waivers if it wants to, an admission that could complicate its defense against biofuels industry lawsuits.“Now we know, through these documents, that EPA does have the authority and they acknowledge that they have that authority. So, we think that’s going to make it really difficult for them to stand in front of a judge and say, ‘Oh no. We can’t do this. We can’t reallocate these volumes.”EPA is expected to finalize the ’19 RFS in November, leaving open the question of timing and whether the EPA will make a final decision ahead of the midterm elections.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Ethanol Industry Still Fighting for Lost Volumes Due to Waivers Ethanol Industry Still Fighting for Lost Volumes Due to Waivers Facebook Twitter Previous articleChinese Trade Surplus with U.S. Hits High Amid Tariff ConcernsNext articleDespite Consolidation and Change, One Indiana Seed Dealer is Optimistic About the Future Eric Pfeifferlast_img read more

When it resumed on 16 May, that day’s issue was also immediately confiscated in what some observers regarded as a punishment for the protest.The seizures are estimated to have cost Al Jareeda 90,000 Sudanese pounds (6,600 US dollars) in lost income.The NISS has not felt the need to provide any explanation for the repeated seizures. Al Jareeda had published articles about a recent wave of student demonstrations in connection with which intelligence officers beat two students to death.In the previous two months, the NISS had already carried out 12 unjustified seizures while 15 journalists were fired at the behest of the authorities. The NISS targets newspapers that criticize the government, mention President Omar al-Bashir’s indictment by the International Criminal Court, or cover the wave of protests.In late April, the NISS banned all newspaper coverage of events linked to the demonstrations, the opposition and human rights.“The increase in repressive measures against the press is a reaction to the growing unrest in Sudan,” RSF said. “We urge the authorities to end the arbitrary confiscation of newspapers and to stop harassing journalists, who have an essential role to play in informing the public.”It is against this backdrop of growing censorship that the justice ministry formed the committee, which includes the NISS, to discuss the proposed press law. The authorities have yet to share the text of the proposed law with those most affected – Sudan’s journalists.Sudan is ranked 174th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

RSF and 6 organizations find “obvious government interference” at Croatian public broadcaster

first_img CroatiaEurope – Central Asia Activities in the fieldReports and statisticsMedia independence RSF_en RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive The group made the call as it released a report highlighting government interference at HRT as a key challenge to media freedom and media independence in Croatia, pointing to mass staff restructuring and paradigmatic programming change as evidence of “an attempt by the outgoing government to assert control over HRT for its own means”.Croatia’s Parliament, then led by a barely one-month-old coalition between the right-leaning HDZ and the centrist Most party, fired HRT’s director-general in March 2016 and appointed an acting director who proceeded to demote or reassign approximately 70 journalists and editors as part of what critics have called an ideologically driven “purge”. In July, the HDZ-Most government amended the law to allow the acting director to remain in office through the September election, a move today’s report said was “suspicious” and lent support to charges of deliberate politicisation of the broadcaster.The recent changes were made in line with a law, passed by the previous Social Democratic government, the report called “out-of-step with principles on promoting the independence of public broadcasters”. That law should be changed as soon as possible, the report said.The report summarises the findings of a three-day mission to Croatia in June 2016 led by the South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) and including representatives from the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ), the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF), the International Press Institute (IPI) and the Austrian section of Reporters Without Borders (RSF).Among the report’s most troubling findings is a rise in nationalistic and revisionist discourse within Croatia’s public sphere that is also being used to intimidate critical media. Leading public figures, including former HDZ head Tomislav Karamarko, have openly expressed a desire to “get rid” of “leftist” media, while journalists and media houses that fail to demonstrate sufficient “patriotism” are routinely smeared by politicians and others as “traitors”.Members of the mission deplored Croatian leaders’ failure to condemn a January 2016 protest against the country’s electronic media regulator in which demonstrators shouted fascist salutes against the regulator’s president, an ethnic Serb. “This silence speaks volumes,” the report said.Among other things, the report also:• condemned a continued failure by Croatian authorities to fully investigate physical attacks and threats against journalists;• applauded recent reforms to protect journalists from Croatia’s criminal ‘shaming’ law, but continued to urge Parliament to repeal all forms of criminal defamation;• called on the government reconsider moves to withdraw funding for minority-language media and non-profit media;• noted “serious omissions” in monitoring and enforcement regarding legal provisions on transparency of media ownership; and• underscored the need for solidarity among journalist organisations in the face of threats to media freedom and media independence.The delegation previously welcomed comments by President Grabar-Kitarović, made during the June 21-23 mission, in support of safeguarding HRT’s independence as well as repealing the criminal ‘shaming’ provision.Croatia is ranked 63rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index. to go further June 2, 2021 Find out more Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union November 23, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information CroatiaEurope – Central Asia Activities in the fieldReports and statisticsMedia independence Receive email alertscenter_img Reports December 2, 2020 Find out more The Croatian public broadcaster HRT must provide balanced coverage of the campaign leading up to the country’s September 11 parliamentary elections, a group of six prominent international media freedom organisations, including Reporters Without Borders (RSF), say, according to findings from June 2016 media freedom mission to Croatia.

FEMA: Running Out of Funds?

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / FEMA: Running Out of Funds? As the damages of Hurricane Harvey are still being accounted for, the threat of two other tropical storms has the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in need of more funding.Hurricane Irma, another category 5 hurricane, is heading towards Florida, with Hurricane Jose following in its path.Florida Sens. Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio wrote in a joint letter to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Charles Schumer addressing their concerns about FEMA rapidly running out of funds.”FEMA is scheduled to run out of money by Friday, September 8, just two days before Hurricane Irma is expected to hit Florida,” Sens. Nelson and Rubio wrote. “Unfortunately, the current disaster relief package Congress is considering for Hurricane Harvey doesn’t account for the additional costs FEMA will likely incur as a result of Hurricane Irma.”The letter also noted that even with the Harvey supplemental aid package, FEMA is likely to run out of funds before the end of September.Fannie Mae has taken notice of Hurricane Irma’s incoming effects, releasing Thursday a reminder to homeowners and servicers that mortgage assistance options are available for those impacted by Hurricane Irma.”It is important for those in the path of the storm to focus on their safety as they deal with the potential impact of Hurricane Irma,” said Carlos Perez, SVP and Chief Credit Officer at Fannie Mae. “Fannie Mae and our lending and servicing partners are focused on ensuring assistance is offered to individuals and families in need.”With FEMA expected to run out of money by the time Hurricane Irma hits, there is additional pressure put on Congress to provide more funding this week, Bloomberg reported.“If it’s down to $1 billion or less, then I would say there’s a great concern,” said Elizabeth Zimmerman to Bloomberg, who until January was FEMA’s associate administrator.
