G20 countries set to invest over $1.6tn in ‘fossil gas,’ jeopardising…

first_imgFeatured image: Stock New analysis finds G20 countries are investing heavily in fossil gas in direct contradiction  with Paris Agreement goals they have agreed to, according to a report titled ‘Debunked: The G20 Clean Gas Myth’.The report finds that G20 countries, in the absence of new policies, are set to see investment of over $1.6 trillion in new gas projects. If this investment takes place – and if Argentina’s Vaca Muerta shale gas reserves are developed – it would seriously jeopardise the climate goals set out in the Paris Agreement.Paul Horsman, Greenpeace Andino Project Leader commented: “Opening more oil, gas and coal reserves condemns the world to more deadly climate impacts. Governments should take responsibility, keep to their Paris Agreement pledges, and stop spending billions of dollars to open even more reserves that neglect the rights of citizens and the environment. People are already paying with their lives and livelihoods for oil and gas extraction, only a shift to massively expand renewable energy sources will guarantee economic success and protect us and our children.”Published by Oil Change International and endorsed by over 20 organisations around the world, the report findings include:The concept of fossil gas as a “bridge fuel” to a stable climate is a myth. Emissions from existing gas fields, alongside existing oil and coal development, already exceed carbon budgets aligned with the Paris Agreement. Even if all coal mines were shut down tomorrow, the gas and oil in already-developed fields alone would take the world beyond the carbon budget for a 50% chance at staying below 1.5ºC of global warming.Despite this reality, G20 countries are projected to host investment of over $1.6 trillion in new gas projects by 2030. If this happens, emissions unlocked through 2050 would make it extremely difficult to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement, which has been signed by all G20 members.Stephen Kretzmann, Executive Director of Oil Change International, commented: “The idea that fossil gas could be a bridge to clean energy dates back to the time when cell phones were tethered to briefcase-size batteries. Fossil gas today is just one more dirty energy source now completely bypassed by newer, cleaner, cheaper, and better technology. It’s time for the G20 to follow through on their commitment to end fossil fuel subsidies, and to begin to discuss how to limit production of all fossil fuels in line with the Paris Agreement’s goals.”Five countries – the United States, Russia, Australia, China, and Canada – are projected to be responsible for 75% of capital expenditures in gas production in G20 countries from 2018-2030.Argentina’s push to open massive shale gas deposits to investment risks undermining its commitment to the Paris Agreement and the work of the Energy Transitions Working Group during its G20 Presidency.Lidy Nacpil, Coordinator of the Asian Peoples’ Movement on Debt and Development commented: “The world does not have the time nor the space to use gas as bridge or transition fuel. We need to fully decarbonise by 2050 if we are to have a good chance of preventing the climate crisis from reaching catastrophic levels. And that means phasing out the use of all fossil fuels as fast as possible. Those who argue for stepping up production and consumption of gas in the transition are either conveniently ignorant of the science or are deliberately deceptive.”Dr. Katherine Kramer, Climate Change Global Lead of Christian Aid said: “The G20 presents an opportunity for economically powerful countries to debunk the dangerous myth that fossil gas can act as a bridging fuel to a low carbon future. Fossil gas is a false solution, all the more egregious when there are sustainable renewable sources of energy that are cost-effective and provide energy access for the poorest people through using indigenous wind and solar. Why ‘bridge’ when you can leapfrog to truly clean energy?”Download ‘Debunked: The G20 Clean Gas Myth’.A partner report, ‘Debunked: The Promise of Argentina’s Vaca Muerta Shale Play,’ published by Greenpeace in Argentina, focuses on the myths surrounding the development of shale gas in Argentina, particularly the Vaca Muerta shale play.

Erynn Ballard Wins Again in $25,000 CaptiveOne Advisors Classic

first_img We’ll send you our regular newsletter and include you in our monthly giveaways. PLUS, you’ll receive our exclusive Rider Fitness digital edition with 15 exercises for more effective riding. Erynn Ballard captured her second major win of the week on Saturday, January 9, in the $25,000 CaptiveOne Advisors Classic at the 2021 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF). Ballard and Ilan Ferder’s Harvester were the fastest of seven in the jump-off for victory.The WEF Premiere week concludes on Sunday, January 10, at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) and is sponsored by The Bainbridge Companies. It features national-level competition for hunters, jumpers, and equitation. International jumper classes will begin at WEF 1 on January 13-17 with a CSI3*. Sunday’s $75,000 Bainbridge Companies Grand Prix will be livestreamed at 2 p.m. EST.There were 23 entries in the $25,000 CaptiveOne Advisors Classic, and they competed over a course designed by Eric Hasbrouck (USA). Seven clear rounds advanced to the jump-off. Riding out of the fourth spot in the jump-off, Ballard and Harvester were able to speed through the short course to end up double clear in 35.765 seconds for the top place.Liza Finsness (USA) and her own Shiver, a 16-year-old Hanoverian gelding by Stakkato x Grannus, placed second with a clear round in 36.562 seconds. Rounding out an all-female top three was Amy Millar (CAN) riding Christiano, an 11-year-old German Sport Horse gelding by Canoso x Compliment owned by Future Adventures. They were the final double clear in the class with a time of 37.450 seconds.Watch the class stream on demand!In contrast to Ballard’s winning ride on Thursday, Walter White – a horse she had only ridden twice – Ballard has worked with Harvester, a nine-year-old KWPN gelding by Dakar VDL x Labor’s VDL Indorado, for two years and knows him well.“I have a nice history with him,” she confirmed. “He’s always been one of my favorites.”With two major wins in a week, Ballard’s confidence is high. She noted, “Things are going my way. I seem to be able to go fast right now, and everything’s falling into place. You definitely have to ride that way when you have the opportunity to.”In the jump-off, Ballard took advantage of Harvester’s better turning to the left and blazed across a bending line of three fences that went the width of the International Arena.“He’s got a cool canter. I know I had him where I wanted him, and if I put him in the right spot, he was going to do it,” she said. “The maturity in him from eight to nine [years old] is [that] he’s much more consistent. He was third in the 1.40m, third in the 1.45m. You can just feel that every day you have the same horse, and not so much a young horse where every day it’s a little bit different.”Ballard will finish her week in Sunday’s $75,000 Bainbridge Grand Prix with one of her top horses, Kamilla D.Opening up competition on Saturday morning in the International Arena, Kristen Berian of Lighthouse Point, FL, rode Fantast van het Vinckenhof to the win in the $15,000 Show Jumping Hall of Fame High Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic, presented by Lugano Diamonds. In the $1,500 Griffis Residential High Junior Jumper class, Zayna Rizvi of Greenwich, CT, and Quivive S Z, owned by Missy Clark and North Run, were victorious. In the final class of the day, Lola Head of Houston, TX, won the $1,500 Karlswood Medium Junior Jumpers with her own Arcange de L’Arc.Final Results: $25,000 CaptiveOne Advisors Classic1 HARVESTER: 2012 KWPN gelding by Dakar VDL x Labor’s VDL IndoradoERYNN BALLARD (CAN), Ilan Ferder: 0/0/35.7652 SHIVER: 2005 Hanoverian gelding by Stakkato x GrannusLIZA FINSNESS (USA), Lisa Finsness: 0/0/36.5623 CHRISTIANO: 2010 German Sport Horse gelding by Canoso x ComplimentAMY MILLAR (CAN), Future Adventures: 0/0/37.4504 CENTRIKO VOLO: 2012 Oldenburg gelding by Centadel x Chacco-BlueJORDAN COYLE (IRL), Celtic Park, LLC: 0/4/35.7215 HOUSTON: 2007 Belgian Warmblood stallion by Heartbreaker x CorofinoSPENCER SMITH (USA), Ashland Farms: 0/4/35.9626 KASSIODAM: 2012 AES mare by Luidam x KolibriMCLAIN WARD (USA), McLain Ward: 0/4/39.7347 DAVALL VDL: 2008 KWPN gelding by Zavall VDL x IndoradoASHLEY FLEISCHHACKER (USA), Ashland Show Stables LLC: 0/8/40.0678 HOLSTEINS MATINA: 2009 DWB mare by Party Dance x CharmeurSOPHIA STUDD (DEN), Marie Botved Studd: 1/75.0529 MIKADO VAN D’ABELENDREEF: 2012 BWP gelding by Eldorado VD ZeshoekFILIP DE WANDEL (BEL), Five Way Farm LLC: 4/73.38410 HEMERALD-BALIA: 2012 KWPN gelding by Emerald x IndoctroRAMIRO QUINTANA (ARG), Orpen Horses: 4/73.993 Tags: Erynn Ballard, Amy Millar, Winter Equestrian Festival, CaptiveOne Advisors Classic, Harvester, WEF Premiere, Christiano, Email* Horse Sport Enews Subscribe to the Horse Sport newsletter and get an exclusive bonus digital edition!

Suspect arrested in kidnapping and killing of 13-year-old Hania Noelia Aguilar

first_imgFOTOKITA/iStock(NEW YORK) — A suspect has been arrested in the kidnapping and killing of 13-year-old Hania Noelia Aguilar, who was snatched from her front yard in North Carolina last month, authorities announced Saturday.The FBI and the Lumberton Police Department arrested 34-year-old Michael Ray McLellan in connection with the case. He was already being held in law enforcement custody on unrelated charges at the time of his arrest.McLellan has been charged with 10 felonies relating to Hania’s killing: first-degree murder, first-degree forcible rape, statutory rape, first-degree sexual offense, statutory sexual offense, first-degree kidnapping, larceny, restraint, abduction of a child and concealment of death, according to a press release from the FBI.McLellan was being held without bond at Robeson County Detention Center, where he appeared before a state magistrate early Saturday morning.He is scheduled to appear in court Monday morning, according to the FBI.The investigation is ongoing and additional charges could be filed. Final autopsy and toxicology reports are not yet complete, the FBI said. Hania was kidnapped just before 7 a.m. local time on Nov. 5 outside her home at the Rosewood Mobile Home Park in Lumberton, a city in Robeson County, according to police. She had grabbed her aunt’s car keys that morning so she could turn on the vehicle before school. That’s when a witness saw a man clad in all black with a yellow bandanna over his face approach the girl and force her into the green, 2003 Ford Expedition, police said.The suspect then drove away in the family’s SUV with Hania inside, police said. The stolen vehicle was located several miles away on Quincey Drive three days later, but Hania was nowhere to be found. Authorities canvassed the neighborhood, going door-to-door, and scoured through surveillance footage from nearby homes and businesses, hoping to piece together what happened to Hania.The FBI named her disappearance its “Most Wanted: Case of the Week.”  After weeks of searching, authorities discovered Hania’s body in a lake in Robeson County on Nov. 27, about 10 miles south from her home.Lumberton Police Chief Michael McNeill said he was “devastated” to make the “heart-wrenching” announcement.“I wish we had a different outcome for Hania’s family,” he told reporters at a press conference the following day.Hania was an 8th-grade student at Lumberton Jr. High School. She is survived by her mother, father and two sisters, according to an online obituary.A funeral service will be held at Lumberton Senior High School on Saturday afternoon before she is laid to rest in Meadowbrook Cemetery.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Frits gets green light for election speeches

first_img“Commissioners are also politicians. They make speeches in their own countries and they don’t stop making speeches during election campaigns,” he added.Faull’s comments came after Bolkestein was criticised for telling the Parliament’s legal affairs committee there was no need for a directive on counterfeiting and piracy – apparently unaware that such a proposal was already being drawn up by his staff (European Voice, 2 May).Dutch socialist deputy Michiel van Hulten suggested that Bolkestein’s blunder was “due to the fact that he is now actively campaigning in the Dutch general election for the Liberal party, VVD”.The internal market chief has also come under fire for the VVD’s anti-enlargement stance. But Faull insisted Bolkestein’s own support for enlargement was “well known”. The Commission’s chief spokesman, Jonathan Faull, told a press briefing on Monday that the internal market chief had the full backing of Romano Prodi, despite complaints from MEPs after Bolkestein took part in a political interview on television.Asked how Prodi interpreted the EU convention that commissioners should distance themselves from national political interests, Faull responded: “Commissioners don’t campaign in national elections. That has always been the case and remains the case.”However, Faull said that did not prevent commissioners from making speeches on party political issues during election campaigns.last_img read more

Anthropology professor’s study analyzes Irish immigration

first_imgIan Kuijt, professor of anthropology at Notre Dame, presented his findings regarding the importance of the hearth and its connection to the narrative of Irish immigration in the Snite Museum of Art on Saturday.Kuijt’s research, titled “The Empty Hearth: Archeological Insights into Irish America,” centered on the documentation and analysis of archeological findings on Inishark, an island located approximately eight miles off the coast of the mainland and abandoned in 1960 in less than 24 hours.The hearth is a fundamental concept in Irish narrative, Kuijt said.“The hunts, the home and the life within the home, is centered on the hearth and the kitchen itself,” Kuijt said. “I’ve used the metaphor of the hearth, as a context under which we can think about histories, stories and narratives of memory. I want to think in terms of personal stories and personal changes at the small scale, and trying to think in some ways about the archeology of the famine within the context of the changes that take place in communities.”Kuijt said the evidence found in the hearths provide insight into the complex stories of families facing the impacts of mass emigration from such a remote island.“It is both horribly interconnected with the mainland, yet it is very separate”, Kuijt said. “In some ways, they take very different trajectories, and these trajectories are very powerful in terms of understanding the immigrant experience, understanding the mobility of people between islands and understanding the mobility towards America.”According to Kuijt, the study’s record of the position and state of Inishark’s buildings as well as the presence of valuable remnants of ceramics and pottery suggest that the island’s inhabitants were well connected. Kuijt said the remains in the hearths also reveal population and housing trends on the island leading up to its abandonment.“These are interesting buildings, first of all because they are rarely preserved; second of all, because they provide this sort of hybrid technology, well-made technology for this point in time”, Kuijt said. “This is a place that’s largely viewed as being a marginal context, yet this is showing us that these people had access to trade markets. There are all kinds of interconnections.”Kuijt’s research documented descendants of the families whose hearths he originally examined, he said. The remains of the hearths and the stories of Inishark’s descendant’s revealed the sacrifice and fragmentation present in the process of immigration, indicating that the abandonment of Inishark had a lasting and profound impact on newer generations.“The big picture out of all of that is that when you think about what’s gone on, these are stories of survivorship, of people surviving under very adverse circumstances,” Kuijt said. “Some of the most powerful stories we can think of is that this is the human condition — of people overcoming circumstance for the next generation.”Tags: Irish Studies, Saturday Scholars, Snite Museum of Artlast_img read more

NAHBS 2012 – Paul Brodie’s Whippet, Victoria, Ventus, Dominguez & Pitz

first_imgVictoria CyclesThe name Victoria Cycles’ may conjure up historic posters of pinup girls on bikes, but the modern incarnation is named after builder Dave Hill’s wife. His bikes are brazed and lugged steel and often feature curved and/or twin tubes. A couple that caught my eye were the classic tandem above and mountain bike below.VentusVentus Cycles’ builder Mark Kargol builds titanium bikes alongside custom paint work for frames, components and helmets. This road bike sported a very classic look thanks to excellent component selection, but the frame is thoroughly modern and the drivetrain is brand new…it’s a current generation Campagnolo group polished to match the retro theme. Paul Brodie’s Whippet caught plenty of eyeballs. It’s a replica 1888 Whippet bicycle, designed with seven pivot points to help insulate the rider from road shock before the invention of pneumatic tires. Lots of photos and the story, plus bikes from Victoria, Ventus, Dominguez and Pitz, further down…center_img DominguezVincent Dominguez had a few interesting bits on his lone display bike, like flattened chainstays right at the rear……dual seat post bolts and some long internal shift cable tunnels springing out of the downtube.Pitz!Pitz! is a small Italian builder that works solely with steel.
