New Study Improves Understanding of Natural Gas Vehicle Methane Emissions, But Supply Chain Emissions Loom Large 6.1.2017 Main Feed - Environmental Defense
By Joe Rudek and Jason Mathers Many commercial fleet operators have considered switching their fleet vehicles from diesel to natural gas to take advantage of the growing abundance of natural gas and reduced emissions. Natural gas trucks have the potential to reduce nitrogen oxides emissions (NOx) from freight trucks and buses. Yet, adopting the emission reduction technologies and practices needed to curb the methane escaping during the production, transport and delivery of natural gas is critical to unlock the full environmental potential of these vehicles. Methane, the main component of natural gas, is a potent greenhouse gas released to the atmosphere at every step from production wells to the vehicle fuel tanks. Even small amounts of methane emitted across the natural gas supply chain can undermine the climate benefit of fuel-switching vehicles to natural gas for some period of time, as EDF research has shown. A newly published scientific study , led by researchers with West Virginia University at the ...

As corruption hits close to home, we must remember there are alternatives to deregulated corporate capitalism 21.12.2016 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
In Canada we can pride ourselves at having anti-corruption legislation applicable both within Canada and to Canadian companies operating abroad (See the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act ). However, when it comes to bribery, graft, corruption and kickbacks there are many dark corners where shady dealing can hide. When it comes to corruption, no legislation has yet been devised that leaves no loopholes, and there are lawyers and accountants able to drive a freight train through the eye of such a ...

Challenging the New Curse of Bigness 30.11.2016 American Prospect
This article appears in the Fall 2016 issue of The American Prospect magazine. Subscribe here .  In a January speech on the excessive economic and political power of big finance, Bernie Sanders declared, “If Teddy Roosevelt, the Republican trust-buster were alive today, he would say, ‘Break ’em up.’ And he would be right.” Hillary Clinton invoked the same legacy. “It’s time to take a page from Teddy Roosevelt’s book and get our economy working for Americans again,” Clinton wrote last fall in an op-ed that called for expanded antitrust enforcement to counteract increasing corporate concentration. The abuse of private power was the central concern for progressive reformers a century ago—and the same issues resonate today. From railroads to oil to finance, men like Andrew Carnegie, Cornelius Vanderbilt, John Rockefeller, and J.P. Morgan had centralized control over these core industries. Some used direct corporate ownership; others established networks of companies via trusts or interlocking boards of ...

Here Are the Races to Watch If You Care About Global Warming 7.11.2016 Mother Jones
The climate didn't get much attention in this year's debates, but Tuesday's election will still have a major consequences for the fight against global warming. Donald Trump thinks climate change is a hoax ; he's pledged to withdraw from the historic Paris climate accord and to repeal President Barack Obama's Clean Power Plan , which is intended to cut greenhouse gas emissions from coal plants. Hillary Clinton has said she will continue Obama's climate legacy and has called for installing half-a-billion solar panels by the end of her first term. The debate isn't restricted to the top of the ticket; there are a number of state races that will play a key role in determining US climate policy, along with a handful of ballot initiatives covering everything thing from rooftop solar to a proposed carbon tax. The situation in each state is unique. Some races—New Hampshire's Senate contest, for instance—feature two candidates who want to act on climate change. Others, such as West Virginia's gubernatorial ...
