Biotech veteran engineers algae breakthrough for biofuel 25.6.2017 Seattle Times: Business & Technology

J. Craig Venter, the scientist who mapped the human genome, teamed with Exxon Mobil in using advanced cell engineering to more than double the fatty lipids inside a strain of algae. The work could eventually enable widespread commercialization of algae-based biofuels.

Judge upholds California’s low-carbon fuel standards 21.6.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
A federal judge has upheld most of California’s pioneering low-carbon fuel standard but allowed oil companies and other fuel suppliers to challenge rules that may favor California ethanol producers over their Midwest competitors. The standard, part of a 2006 state law intended to reduce air pollution that causes global warming, requires suppliers of transportation fuel sold in California to achieve a 10 percent reduction by 2020 in the amount of carbon released from their products. Ruling in lawsuits originally filed in 2009 by oil refiners and ethanol producers, U.S. District Judge Lawrence O’Neill of Fresno rejected their broadest arguments: that the California rules conflicted with milder federal clean-air laws and were an unconstitutional attempt to shield the state’s energy producers from competition. Because state officials have conceded that the carbon standard, by itself, will not significantly reduce global climate change, he said, the Midwestern producers “plausibly have alleged” that the ...

Saving the Planet Goes Local 21.4.2017 American Prospect
This article appears in the Spring 2017 issue of The American Prospect magazine. Subscribe here .  Of all the Trump administration’s policies, the one most likely to cause damage that can’t be undone may not be deporting immigrants or throwing poor people off Medicaid or outsourcing our foreign policy to the Kremlin. Rather, it could well be a cessation of efforts to combat climate change. The accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is cumulative; even a later reversal of the Trump administration’s fossil fuel–friendly policies would not be able to undo the damage about to be done. Even by the environmentally retrograde standards of his party, Donald Trump stands out as an extreme climate-science denier: Cold winter weather in New York prompts him to tweet that global warming has been proven a hoax. He hates wind farms (partly because they threaten the views from one of his Scottish golf resorts). On the campaign trail, Trump vowed to repeal President Obama’s pro-climate regulations and all ...

Icahn lobbying Trump divides ethanol industry 3.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Billionaire Carl Icahn’s relationship with President Donald Trump has helped spark a round of recriminations within the $24 billion American ethanol industry just as it navigates one of the most crucial points in its history. The discord has emerged in the past three days as ethanol companies react to a proposal from Icahn and a lobby group that would shake up how the industry is regulated. At the heart of the dispute lies the question of who exactly should be responsible for complying with a 12...

Clean tech tries again, retooling nature for industrial use 31.12.2016 SFGate: Business & Technology
A decade ago, a group of biologists, venture capitalists and computer whizzes gathered under the name “clean tech.” Genes may indeed be programmable code, akin to computer software, but it turned out nature was more complex than first believed. Create cheap, safe and natural materials for fuel, cosmetics and other goods, much the way yeast ferments sugars into alcohol. Instead of grand, complex projects, they are targeting little changes at a fast rate and adjusting as clever analysis yields more information — a concept high-tech firms call agile programming. “This is like agile programming, but for biology,” said Eric Steen, a co-founder of Lygos, a Berkeley startup creating yeasts that make malonic acid, an ingredient in fragrances commonly derived from cyanide. The Lygos version of this is to rapidly measure the performance of a novel yeast strain and quickly build on those results with gene-editing tools that are 100 times faster than when Steen was in graduate school, 15 years ago. The ...

With an Enemy Like Trump, Climate Activists Should Look Beyond the Paris Accord 22.12.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Trump's announcement that he intends to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement has generated outrage worldwide. But many climate activists who find such carbon-trading-dependent agreements woefully insufficient believe it's time for people worldwide to take the climate fight local, like at Standing Rock. President Obama, center right, joining other leaders for a photo at the UN climate change conference in Le Bourget, near Paris, on Novvember 30, 2015. (Photo: Stephen Crowley / The New York Times) The first local environmental campaign I ever got involved in was against Donald Trump. I was living in Aberdeen, Scotland, when, in March 2006 Trump announced his plans to convert one of my favorite nature sites north of Aberdeen into a golf course, hotel and housing complex. Menie Estate, which he had acquired, lay at the heart of a landscape and ecosystem unique within Scotland : a large expanse of shifting sand dunes, home to a diverse community of plants found only on acidic, sandy soils, and well known ...
