New Study Says RFS Reduced GHG by Nearly One Billion Tons

first_img SHARE Biofuels have reduced carbon emissions by almost one billion metric tons, according to a new study for the Renewable Fuels Association. The research by Life Cycle Associates shows a 980-million metric ton cut in carbon-based greenhouse gas emissions from 2008 to last year.Renewable Fuels Association chief Geoff Cooper says the Renewable Fuel Standard has exceeded original expectations partly due to a better ethanol production process and partly due to improvements in farming.“Yes, there is fossil energy used in planting and harvesting a corn crop or any other biomass that might be used for power generation, but those emissions are far less when you total them up, than what is associated with natural gas and certainly, far less than what you’d see with coal,” Cooper said.The latest study found corn ethanol had larger greenhouse gas reductions than the Environmental Protection Agency’s forecast, gasoline and diesel were more polluting than expected, and biodiesel and renewable diesel were less so.The bottom line is the carbon intensity of corn ethanol is now 45 percent less than that of gasoline and 20 percent better than before the study period. That’s a strong argument for using more ethanol.“We think that renewable fuels like ethanol should play a significant role in the U.S. commitment to achieving carbon reductions. So, we do think there’s an opportunity,” Cooper added. “We think there’s definitely a role for low-carbon renewable fuels to play in any of these policy objectives moving forward.”Ethanol groups are ramping up their push for corn ethanol and other biofuels as the Biden Administration pushes efforts to convert public and private vehicles to renewables.Source: NAFB News Service By Andy Eubank – Feb 16, 2021 Home Indiana Agriculture News New Study Says RFS Reduced GHG by Nearly One Billion Tons SHARE New Study Says RFS Reduced GHG by Nearly One Billion Tons Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleHAT Market Analysis for 2/16/21 with Arlan Suderman of StoneXNext articleCorn Exports Up Significantly From Last Year Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Required fields are marked * Subscribe August 20, 2020Dear Pasadena,I have viewed what videos and photographs that were shared with me by City Manager Steve Mermell of the Offìcer-Involved Shooting of Mr. Anthony McClain that took place on Saturday, 15 August. Mr. McClain’s death is tragic.Some may seek to demean Mr. McClain to dehumanize his existence. But the fair-minded will acknowledge Mr. McClain’s humanity and deep connections to Pasadena. Mr. McClain literally may have hundreds of relatives in The Greater Pasadena Area. Mr. McClain leaves behind 2 young children. I have spoken to Mr. McClain’s 89-year-old grandmother and his stepmother. Quite naturally, both are upset and desire a comprehensive investigation of what happened. I provide my heartfelt condolences to Mr. Anthony McClain’s Family.The facts surrounding the shooting are unfortunate and extremely troubling to me. There are many unanswered questions and the shooting, policies of the police department, body-worn cameras, and training of our police personnel must undergo thorough and impartial examination.I do not have all of the facts at this point. However, please know that I urged Police Chief John Perez and City Manager Steve Mermell to release and publish prominently, with all deliberate speed, all audio and video of the incident in the possession of the Pasadena Police Department.The Pasadena Police Department will investigate the officer-involved shooting and facts that pertain to the shooting to determine if the shooting was within or outside of policy. The District Attorney’s office will decide whether the actions of the officer involved in the shooting were justified or not. The District Attorney’s office is the only agency tasked with making such a determination on criminal charges, unless the Federal Bureau of Investigation has an active role in investigating the matter.City Manager Steve Mermell will engage outside professionals to review the findings of the Pasadena Police Department concerning the incident and will make the report public.The investigations of the officer-involved shooting have already begun. They will take time and I am requesting that the processes be expedited, but thorough.It remains my hope that the City Council will, without delay, swiftly adopt meaningful and real community oversight of the Pasadena Police Department.Respectfully yours,John J.

New water connections to eliminate leakage

first_imgLinkedin Print Twitter WhatsApp OVER 1,900 new water connections are about to be made to Limerick households that previously were serviced by a communal lead supply.Confirming that the works will eliminate poorly performing water mains that had a history of high levels of leakage, Limerick City Council’s senior executive engineer, John O’Shaughnessy, said that due to the age of the network, many of the pipes, which are in poor condition and prone to bursts, leaks and low water pressure, have to be replaced.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick City Council, in association with the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government, have engaged contractors, Shareridge Ltd to carry out a Mains Rehabilitation Project within  the city.Pointing out that the project was set up to assist in reducing leakage by identifying and replacing old water mains that have outlived their usefulness, Mr O’Shaughnessy said it is estimated that up to 50 kilometres of the water mains network is over 80 years old.“A budget of €7m has been provided by Central Government through the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government and by the city council to be invested over the period 2010 to 2013,” he said.Phase one of the project will involve the replacement of up to seven kilometres of water mains  and will provide approximately 1,900 new individual water connections to households. “It is expected that further packages will be tendered shortly, depending on the approval of the Department of Environment Community and Local Government,” said Mr O’Shaughnessy, who adds:“The Limerick City Water Main Rehabilitation Project demonstrates the commitment of both central and local government to the ongoing conservation of water in the region, which is essential to our sustainable economic and physical development”.It is estimated that the first phase of this project will be completed within nine months.

Major concern in Twin Towns over by-pass proposals

first_img News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Previous article46 people awaiting beds at LUHNext article13 Garda recruits due in Donegal reassigned to Galway News Highland Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Pinterest Pinterest WhatsApp WhatsApp Facebook Google+ Facebookcenter_img By News Highland – November 22, 2018 Major concern in Twin Towns over by-pass proposals Twitter The Ballybofey & Stranorlar Chamber of Commerce has expressed shock and concern at the financial impact that the proposed Sligo to Letterkenny TEN-T route corridor will have on the Twin Towns.The Chamber has calculated that the proposed TEN-T route corridor will result in lost revenues of approx. €10m per annum and that this will result in the loss of up to 200 jobs locally. It will also have a knock on impact for many local service providers.In a statement the spokesperson for the Chamber, Mr Charlie Ferry, commented that “the Chamber is appalled that no consideration has been given to connecting Ballybofey & Stranorlar to the proposed TEN-T route. The lack of a proper connecting route into the towns has the potential to destroy the Twin Towns”.“We have consulted widely with our members – all of them are expecting a significant drop in turnover with those in the Hospitality sector expecting a drop of up to 25% if the TEN-T route corridor proceeds as planned. Ballybofey and Stranorlar are effectively service towns – shops, hotels and other catering outlets. These are all highly dependent on passing trade and cross border trade. The Hospitality sector provides 30% of the jobs in the Twin Towns whereas the figure nationally is 10%. Many of the 34 businesses operating in this sector in the Twin Towns are of the view that they will be forced to shut down if the route corridor proceeds as planned. Many permanent jobs will be lost and part time and seasonal employment will be seriously impacted. Reduced spending by businesses will have an impact across the whole community – service providers such as tradesmen, cleaners, professional services and others will be directly impacted. We believe that the impact of a Hard Brexit will be nothing compared to the impact that the proposed TEN-T route corridor will have. If it goes ahead as planned it will turn Ballybofey and Stranorlar into Ghost Towns similar to what you would see in Mid-West America”.Mr Ferry added that “it is normal that consideration would be given to towns that are being bypassed so that the impact of the bypass would be minimised. Bypassed towns are generally visible from the bypass and connecting routes are provided from the heart of the bypass to the towns so that the towns are easily accessible. The most shocking sign of the total lack of consideration for the Twin Towns is there isn’t one new access road being built which would link the TEN-T route corridor with the heart of the towns. It is the minimum that anyone would expect. Instead, we are being told that access to the towns will be via the existing routes which are not fit for purpose and will not be or cant be upgraded”.According to Mr Ferry “members of the Chamber fully recognise that a route corridor or bypass has the potential to be a good thing for the towns. It could take heavy lorries and non-stopping traffic away from the towns and free up the roads for people who work, shop and do business here. However, the proposed TEN-T route corridor will only divert a fraction of the heavy traffic away from the Twin Towns. Worse than that is the fact that there is no access road into Twin Towns from the proposed TEN-T route corridor so passing traffic will soon forget about the Twin Towns”. Mr Ferry added that “motorists won’t come into the Twin Towns if they see a sign post for the town centre of 6KM if they are coming from the Letterkenny direction and 4KM if they are coming from the Donegal Town direction. They will just continue on their journey. If they do decide to take either route into the towns they will still be faced with all the usual traffic congestion as the current proposals are not dealing in any way with the traffic congestion issues that currently exist”.The Chamber is calling on all relevant parties to go back to the drawing board to come up with a traffic management solution that will give proper consideration to the towns of Ballybofey and Stranorlar.

Democrat Weinzapfel Leads AG Campaign Funding With $609K

first_imgState Sen. Karen Tallian, the Portage Democrat running against Weinzapfel for the Democratic nod, has $144,159.09 available in her Tallian for Attorney General campaign coffers. Her Senate campaign committee has $7,029.30. Hill’s first announced GOP challenger, Indianapolis attorney John Westercamp, has $38,646.42 available. The other GOP candidate, Adam Krupp — who will soon resign as Indiana revenue commissioner to run for attorney general — has not yet filed campaign finance reports. Democrat Weinzapfel Leads AG Campaign Funding With $609Posted by Indiana LawyersThough Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill is outpacing his Republican opponents in available money for the 2020 AG nomination race, a would-be Democratic challenger leads the pack with more than $600,000 on hand.Meanwhile, the incumbent AG has yet to secure a key supporter in his bid to become the Republican nominee. FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharecenter_img Krupp officially announced his candidacy Jan. 13, and a spokesperson for his campaign said his statement of organization was filed the same day. His first-quarter campaign finance report is due April 15.None of these candidates will face the voters just yet — they first have to convince their fellow Republicans or Democrats to select them as their respective parties’ nominees for the 2020 attorney general race. The parties will choose their AG candidates at their state conventions this summer.While Weinzapfel has raised about $125,000 from supporters, the bulk of his war chest comes from his own political action committee, which contributed about $487,000 to his AG bid.In an email to Indiana Lawyer, Weinzapfel said he created the Weinzapfel for Indiana PAC after he decided not to seek a third term as Evansville mayor in 2011. He transferred the PAC’s funds to his AG campaign last month.Hill’s largest contribution in 2019 came from Rex Sinquefield, a Republican political activist who donated $25,000 to the AG’s reelection campaign.Hill also has the support of Forrest Lucas, the Indiana businessman and founder of Lucas Oil. Lucas — whose company is the namesake of Lucas Oil Stadium — donated $10,000 to the AG.The Republican attorney general also received $10,000 from C. Boyden Grey, a Washington Lawyer, lobbyist and former official in the George H.W. Bush administration.Additionally, two Indiana law firms are supporting Hill-Lewis & Wilkins LLP, which donated $5,000 to his campaign, and Barnes & Thornburg, which donated $2,500.Westercamp’s campaign has seen significant contributions to Bose McKinney & Evans LLP, the law firm where he practices. The firm’s donations total $10,700.Aside from Bose, Westercamp’s biggest contribution came from Van Smith, a retired Muncie attorney who donated $5,000. He’s also received $2,000 from the Bassler for State Senate committee benefitting Sen. Eric Bassler, a Republican from Washington, Indiana.Though Hill is leading his GOP challengers in fundraising, he has not yet received some key endorsements from within the party. Notably, Indiana Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb on Tuesday declined to say if he would endorse Hill, Westercamp or Krupp for the Republican convention.calling for Hill’s resignation in 2018 when allegations that the AG drunkenly groped four women at a party in March of that year came to light. The governor said Tuesday his position on Hill’s resignation has not changed but added it was “all premature” to say whether he would back one of Hill’s challengers.“I’m going to not interfere with a co-equal branch of government as they do their work,” Holcomb said, referencing the ongoing attorney discipline action against Hill.The Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission has recommended a two-year suspension of Hill’s law license without automatic reinstatement. “I’m just as anxious to see what steps they take before I take my next one.”Aside from his PAC contributions, Weinzapfel’s largest campaign donation came from Bryan Richards, a Newburgh real estate professional who contributed $20,000.Weinzapfel also received $15,000 from John Engelbrecht and $10,000 from John Dunn, both of Evansville.His law firm, Jones Wallace LLC in Evansville, has donated $2,500 to Weinzapfel’s AG campaign. Also, Friends of Ryan Hatfield, benefitting Evansville Democratic Rep. Ryan Hatfield, donated $800.Like Weinzapfel, Tallian’s AG campaign is being partially financed by her other political endeavors. The Tallian for Senate Election Committee contributed a total of $80,000 to her attorney general bid in 2019.Aside from her Senate campaign funds, Tallian’s biggest contribution came from the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, which is based in Kansas City and donated $25,000. She also received $15,000 from James McKamey in Portage.Additionally, Tallian’s fellow Statehouse Democrats are supporting her in the race for the Democratic AG nomination. Rep. Ed Delaney donated $1,000, while Rep. Sue Errington gave $1,100.Also, the Visclosky for Congress Committee benefitting retiring Democratic Congressman Pete Visclosky donated $5,000 to Tallian. ­FOOTNOTE: The Associated Press contributed to this report. Indiana campaign finance reports filed after the first of the year show that Hill finished 2019 with $183,659.78 in his campaign war chest. But Jonathan Weinzapfel, a Democrat and former mayor of Evansville, is heading into 2020 with $609,310.24.last_img read more
