California bill bans coal-export funding 27.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune

The legislation was introduced in response to a developer’s failed proposal to build a coal terminal in Oakland. The project would have involved funding from the state of Utah, which hoped to create job... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Corporations turn to their own green energy sources 27.8.2016 SFGate: Business & Technology
The words are stenciled on the front of the Apple Store, a glass box sandwiched between a nondescript Thai restaurant and a CVS pharmacy in downtown Palo Alto: “This store runs on 100 percent renewable energy.” If Apple’s plans play out, it will be able to make that claim not only for its operations throughout California but also beyond, as the company aims to meet its growing needs for electricity with green sources like solar, wind and hydroelectric power. Like other big companies before it, including Walmart and Google, Apple recently received a federal designation for its energy subsidiary that allows it to become a wholesale seller of electricity from coast to coast. [...] like a growing number of corporations, Apple is intent on reducing carbon dioxide emissions from electricity production — one of the biggest sources of greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. In one ambitious venture, Apple has contracted with First Solar to begin buying a little less than half of the power later ...

Terry Tempest Williams finds her way home -- park by park by park 26.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
In the grandeur of America’s national parks, Utah writer Terry Tempest Williams found her life’s work. It seems the writer’s 15 earlier books were preparing her to tackle her most epic story ever: America itself. Her genre-crossing “The Hour of the Land: A Personal Topography of America’s National Parks,” published to mark the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, lands in the middle of a divisive political campaign in a divided country. The book is particularly resonant in the middle ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Peabody backs out of reservoir project 26.8.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Peabody Energy has backed away from plans to build the 400-acre Trout Creek Reservoir about 15 miles southwest of Steamboat Springs. Information that Peabody was working on the reservoir project first surfaced in 2012, when a memo was sent to the Upper Yampa Water Conservancy. Because the plan included a proposed hydroelectric dam that would generate 125 kilowatts of electricity, Peabody was seeking approvals from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC. On Tuesday, FERC released a letter stating they were terminating the licensing process because Peabody had missed deadlines. In 2015, because of dwindling demand for coal, Peabody asked for a two-year extension in the permitting process so the company could conserve cash and reduce debt. In April, Peabody declared bankruptcy. Some environmentalist declared a victory when FERC terminated the licensing process. "This is good news for Trout Creek, the Yampa River and the entire Colorado River basin,” Save The Colorado's Gary Wockner said in a news ...

(Photo: Julie Dermansky) During President Obama's visit to a flood-ravaged area near Baton Rouge, Louisiana, this week, a group of environmental activists delivered a petition to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) protesting the planned leasing of more of the Gulf of Mexico for oil and gas drilling. They gathered 184,000 electronic signatures over just six days calling for the President and BOEM to cancel its lease auction -- scheduled to take place August 24.  Four members of the group told police on the scene they planned to stay until either they got a response from President Obama or they were arrested. "I am here to show support for Cherri Foytlin [a Louisiana activist who runs Bold Louisiana], who started the petition after experiencing the 1,000 year flood that just hit Louisiana," New Orleans retired teacher Renate Heurich told DeSmog.

Battered shale market produces land buys 25.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The buyer’s market that the battered U.S. shale patch has become is so far luring more land purchases than takeovers as investors await a more solid crude price rebound before making bigger moves. Handshakes between U.S. oil and gas explorers have had more to do with acquisitions of coveted acreage in the Permian Basin straddling West Texas and New Mexico, or Oklahoma’s SCOOP and STACK areas, than agreements to share a head office and a logo. “People are trying to find the bottom,” said Stephen ...
