Trump effect on 'green' investing: Positive? 18.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
New York • Donald Trump’s move into the White House could drive even more dollars into the already hot field of sustainable investing. Wait, what? Trump has called climate change a hoax, said he’d like to pull out of the Paris Agreement on global warming and suggested rolling back the carbon-cutting Clean Power Plan. Isn’t his victory a sign that Americans don’t believe in climate change? Regardless of what was said on the campaign trail, a growing number of investors do care about the environme...

Freeze work on steel flyover project, CfB urges governor 25.10.2016 deccanherald.com
Citizens for Bengaluru (CfB), which is spearheading a campaign against the steel flyover project, has sought an inquiry and urged immediate freezing of work of the proposed six-lane project. A signed memorandum by CfB, which was submitted to Governor Vajubhai Vala on Tuesday, has termed the project expensive, not serving its avowed purpose, having poor design, lacking in aesthetics and posing a serious ecological threat to the city. "Experts have suggested alternative solutions that are simpler and more effective, far less expensive and friendlier to the environment. Despite intense opposition to the project, the BDA has decided to issue work order to execute the controversial project and indicated the date of November 1 to lay the foundation stone," it reads. Actor Prakash Belawadi, who was part of the delegation, said that the governor had agreed to support them. "The governor is aware of the issue and has expressed concern over the loss of the city's greenery. He has promised to consult advocates and ...

Steel flyover extension violates buffer zone norms: Lake Authority 23.10.2016 deccanherald.com
The plan to extend the contentious steel flyover from Hebbal to Esteem Mall, over the existing flyover on the Hebbal lake, would be in violation of the provisions of the Karnataka Lake Conservation and Development Authority (KLCDA) Act, 2014, as well as buffer zone guidelines issued by the Karnataka High Court and the National Green Tribunal (NGT). Highly placed sources in the KLCDA said that the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA)has to mandatorily take their permission before commencing the work on extending the flyover. "If the steel flyover is extended without seeking our permission, we will file a criminal case against the BDA commissioner as this will violate the KLCDA Act, high court and NGT rulings on maintaining the buffer zone. So far the BDAhas not consulted us," a senior KLCDA official told DH on condition of anonymity. According to Section (2) of the KLCDA Act, a lake includes the water body, buffer zones, inlets and outlets. The construction will be in violation of the Sections 14, 32 ...

Flyover cleared as steel not on green list 23.10.2016 deccanherald.com
A steel flyover is not in the list of infrastructure projects that needs clearance from the State Environmental Impact Assessment Authority (SEIAA). Despite this, SEIAA cleared the steel flyover project, from Basaveshwara circle to Esteem Mall, over Hebbal flyover. Ramachandra, SEIAAmember secretary, told DH, "The endorsement was given because the steel flyover is not in our purview. The BDA applied to us and we scrutinised the SEIAA rules. The list of infrastructure projects does not mention steel flyovers. Since we have nothing to do with it, the clearance was given." However, the State Environmental Impact Assessment Authority (SEIAA) wants to approach the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF)for a relook at the project. But this may not be possible as the state government has set November 1 as the date to lay the foundation stone for the flyover project. "If the project was not under the SEIAA purview, the file should have been sent back and referred to the tree committee of the Bruhat Bengaluru ...
