Russian nuclear power in the UK? We might want to think about that | Terry Macalister 12.3.2014 Guardian: Environment
We should beware Russia's politicisation of gas supplies to Ukraine as we contemplate a deal with it to build an atomic plant in Britain Clearly there is something jarring about the Department of Energy and Climate Change (Decc) boasting about its positive negotiations with the Russians over building a nuclear power station in Britain just as a summit is due to begin in London about what sanctions can be taken against Moscow over its involvement in the Crimea. If Vladimir Putin is threatening to once again use energy as a political weapon in the Ukraine by cutting off the country's gas exports , then this is a bad moment to talk about state-owned Rosatom taking a critical stake in UK power infrastructure through the construction of an atomic plant. Western Europe is already 30% (and in past years 50%) dependent on Russian gas, while London now hosts the headquarters of Gazprom's global gas trading operation. But surely Britain does not want to open itself up to further dependence on ...

Crimea to take over Ukraine state firms, gas fields on its territory 12.3.2014 DNA: Money
Crimea will take ownership of Ukrainian state companies on its territory, including the region's Black Sea natural gas fields, its first deputy prime minister said, cementing the region's independence before a referendum on joining Russia. Crimea, a southern Ukrainian region which is home to the Russian Black Sea fleet, will vote on Sunday on whether to join Russia. Since pro-Russian separatists took control of the regional parliament almost two weeks ago, it has declared Crimea part of the Russian Federation. At a news conference broadcast on Russian television, Rustam Temirgaliev said: "In the coming days the transfer is being prepared ... for a series of assets, belonging to the Ukrainian state, which are located on the territory of Crimea." He said energy company Chornomornaftohaz and the state railway company would be included, along with several resorts owned by ministries in Kiev. "The property of private companies and private individuals remain the property ...

Can Kemper become the first US power plant to use 'clean coal'? 12.3.2014 The Guardian -- World Latest
A $5bn facility to capture carbon and pump it underground could provide a lifeline for the dirtiest of fossil fuels, but many remain unconvinced The massive block of steel towers and pipes rises out of the morning fog like a sci-fi fantasy. But this coal-fired power plant could help save the climate, or at least that's the hope of the Obama administration. The plant in east-central Mississippi was repeatedly invoked by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to justify sweeping new climate change rules. When it comes online later this year, Kemper will be the first power plant in the US capable of capturing and storing carbon dioxide emissions. The EPA says the Kemper County Energy Facility offers a real-life example that it is possible to go on burning the dirtiest of fossil fuels and still make the cuts in carbon dioxide emissions needed to avoid a climate catastrophe. But with staggering costs – $5bn (£3bn) and rising – and pushback from industry and environmental groups who ...

Death of 15-year-old nine months after being hit by a police tear-gas canister has sparked violent clashes in Turkish capital Tens of thousands of people have turned out for the funeral of a Turkish boy who died nine months afterafter being hit by a police tear-gas canister during anti-government protests.

Ousted Libyan PM flees country after tanker escapes rebel-held port 12.3.2014 DNA: Top News
Former Libyan prime minister Ali Zeidan has fled to Europe after parliament voted him out of office on Tuesday over his failure to stop rebels exporting oil independently in a brazen challenge to the nation's fragile unity. Zeidan was in Malta for two hours late on Tuesday on a refuelling stop before going to "another European country", Prime Minister Joseph Muscat told state-owned television TVM. But no European government had confirmed his arrival by late morning on Wednesday. The standoff over control of oil exports threatens to deepen dangerous regional and tribal faultlines in Libya where rival militias with powerbases in the east and west back competing political factions in the transitional government. Western powers fear the OPEC member state could slide into greater instability or even break apart. Parliament acted after rebels holding three key ports in the east disobeyed government orders and loaded a North Korean-flagged tanker with oil as part of their drive ...
