Some scientists worried about surprisingly cold blob in the North Atlantic Ocean

August 19, 2019

first_imgRelated posts:It’s official: 2015 ‘smashed’ 2014’s global temperature record. It wasn’t even close Costa Rica’s erupting volcanoes may help slow global warming The Guardian names Costa Rican journalist among ‘young climate campaigners to watch’ ahead of Paris 2015 Small but vocal turnout in Costa Rica for global climate march It is, for our home planet, an extremely warm year.Indeed, last week we learned from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that the first eight months of 2015 were the hottest such stretch yet recorded for the globe’s surface land and oceans, based on temperature records going to 1880. It’s just the latest evidence that we are, indeed, on course for a record-breaking warm year in 2015.Yet, if you look closely, there’s one part of the planet that is bucking the trend. In the North Atlantic Ocean south of Greenland and Iceland, the ocean surface has seen very cold temperatures for the past eight months. What’s up with that?First of all, it’s no error. Deke Arndt, chief of the climate monitoring branch at NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information, confirmed what the map above suggests – some parts of the North Atlantic Ocean saw record cold in the past eight months. As Arndt put it by email:For the grid boxes in darkest blue, they had their coldest Jan-Aug on record, and in order for a grid box to be “eligible” for that map, it needs at least 80 years of Jan-Aug values on the record.Those grid boxes encompass the region from “20W to 40W and from 55N to 60N,” Arndt explained.And there’s not much reason to doubt the measurements – the region is very well sampled. “It’s pretty densely populated by buoys, and at least parts of that region are really active shipping lanes, so there’s quite a lot of observations in the area,” Arndt said. “So I think it’s pretty robust analysis.”Thus, the record seems to be a meaningful one – and there is a much larger surrounding area that, although not absolutely the coldest it has been on record, is also unusually cold.At this point, it’s time to ask what the heck is going on here. And while there may not yet be any scientific consensus on the matter, at least some scientists suspect that the cooling seen in these maps is no fluke but, rather, part of a process that has been long feared by climate researchers – the slowing of Atlantic Ocean circulation.In March, several top climate scientists, including Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and Michael Mann of Penn State, published a paper in Nature Climate Change suggesting that the gigantic ocean current known as the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, or AMOC, is weakening. It’s sometimes confused with the “Gulf Stream,” but, in fact, that’s just a southern branch of it.The current is driven by differences in the temperature and salinity of ocean water (for a more thorough explanation, see here). In essence, cold salty water in the North Atlantic sinks because it is more dense, and warmer water from farther south moves northward to take its place, carrying tremendous heat energy along the way. But a large injection of cold, fresh water can, theoretically, mess it all up – preventing the sinking that would otherwise occur and, thus, weakening the circulation.In the Nature Climate Change paper, the researchers suggested that this source of freshwater is the melting of Greenland, which is now losing more than a hundred billion tons of ice each year.“I was formerly somewhat skeptical about the notion that the ocean “conveyor belt” circulation pattern could weaken abruptly in response to global warming. Yet this now appears to be underway, as we showed in a recent article, and as we now appear to be witnessing before our very eyes in the form of an anomalous blob of cold water in the sup-polar North Atlantic,” Mann said via email.Rahmstorf also commented via email:“The fact that a record-hot planet Earth coincides with a record-cold northern Atlantic is quite stunning. There is strong evidence – not just from our study – that this is a consequence of the long-term decline of the Gulf Stream System, i.e., the Atlantic ocean’s overturning circulation AMOC, in response to global warming.”Rahmstorf was asked whether, if his thinking is right, we should expect this cold patch to become a permanent feature of temperature maps, even as the world continues to warm. His answer was complex, but not anything that gives you much reassurance:“The short term variations will at some point also go the other way again, so I don’t expect the subpolar Atlantic to remain at record cold permanently. But I do expect the AMOC to decline further in the coming decades. The accelerated melting of the Greenland ice sheet will continue to contribute to this decline by diluting the ocean waters.”Granted, it’s not clear that all climate scientists agree with this interpretation of what’s happening in the North Atlantic – but clearly some important ones do, and they have published their conclusions in an influential journal.The longer the situation continues, the more it is likely to attract attention. But it has already been around for a while. “It’s been really persistent over the last year and a half or so,” NOAA’s Arndt says.Indeed, Rahmstorf previously discussed about the cold patch in the North Atlantic in March, when his study came out – and when a NOAA temperature chart for December 2014 through February 2015 also showed record cold in this area. As Rahmstorf wrote back then, “The North Atlantic between Newfoundland and Ireland is practically the only region of the world that has defied global warming and even cooled.” Since then, the trend appears to have only continued.So in sum, if Mann and Rahmstorf are right, a slowing of Atlantic Ocean circulation could be beginning, and even leaving a temperature signature for all to see.This won’t lead to anything remotely like The Day After Tomorrow (which was indeed based – quite loosely – on precisely this climate scenario). But if the trend continues, there could be many consequences, including rising seas for the U.S. East Coast and, possibly, a difference in temperature overall in the North Atlantic and Europe.So on future climate maps, even as we rack up more hot months and years, we’d better watch the North Atlantic closely.© 2015, The Washington Post Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Julia Roberts more movie stars snare Golden Globe

August 10, 2019

first_imgJulia Roberts, more movie stars snare Golden Globe TV nods AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Lynn Elber, The Associated Press Posted Dec 6, 2018 10:15 am PDT LOS ANGELES — Even the sometimes-offbeat Golden Globe Awards are unable to resist the allure of movie stars who dabble in television work.Julia Roberts, Amy Adams, Jim Carrey and Michael Douglas were among the nominees announced Thursday for next month’s awards voted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Not every film actor made the cut, with Emma Stone and Jonah Hill out of the running for Netflix’s “Maniac.”Also snubbed was “This Is Us,” one of the few broadcast network shows that has garnered awards respect amid an onslaught of cable and streaming shows. It failed to earn a best drama series bid or recognition for last year’s Globes (and previous Emmy Award) winner Sterling K. Brown or the twice-nominated Chrissy Metz.Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” the defending best drama series winner, was overlooked this time, a sting that follows its loss in this year’s Emmys to “Game of Thrones.” But “Handmaid’s” star Elisabeth Moss and co-star Yvonne Strahovski were nominated.HBO’s “Game” missed out on 2019 Globes consideration because new episodes didn’t air within the eligibility window. Instead, Globe voters tipped their hats to the last season of FX’s “The Americans” and newcomers including Netflix’s “Bodyguard,” a British series about a politician’s protector, and FX’s “Pose,” set in 1980s New York and with a groundbreaking number of transgender cast members.Donald Glover’s “Atlanta” was ignored again as best drama comedy series while star Glover, who won for his role in 2017, was nominated. His competitors include Carrey for Showtime’s “Kidding,” Douglas for Netflix’s “The Kominsky Method” and Bill Hader, fresh off an Emmy win for “Barry.”Henry Winkler, who claimed an Emmy for his supporting role in HBO’s “Barry,” also is up for a Globe. The series itself is competing for top comedy honours against defending Globes champ and Emmy winner “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”Issa Rae, a two-time nominee for “Insecure,” didn’t earn a best comedy actress bid, but Candice Bergen got a welcome-back hug for CBS’ revived sitcom “Murphy Brown.” She was a Globes favourite when the original series aired, earning nine nominations and winning a trophy in 1989.Bergen is part of an all-white field of nominees, including Emmy winner Rachel Brosnahan for “Mrs. Maisel.” Glover is the only actor of colour in his category, with black actors Billy Porter (“Pose”) and Stephan James (“Homecoming”) earning best drama series acting bids.FX’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” received the leading number of bids, four, including best limited series or TV movie, and nominations for stars Darren Criss, Penelope Cruz and Edgar Ramirez.Their nominations boosted the nominations’ inclusiveness, as did bids for Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve”), Regina King (“Seven Seconds”) and Thandie Newton (“Westworld”).Oh will host the Jan. 6 Globes ceremony on NBC along with Andy Samberg. Earlier this year she became the first actress of Asian descent to receive a lead drama actress Emmy nod for the spy thriller.At the Globes, she’ll compete with the Oscar-winning Roberts, who earned a bid for Amazon’s nominated “Homecoming,” a psychological thriller based on the podcast of the same name.Keri Russell was nominated for “The Americans,” as was her co-star (and real-life partner) Matthew Rhys, who earned an Emmy this year for his role.The Globes, which honour both TV and movies, made the satirical “Vice,” about former Vice-President Dick Cheney, the top-nominated film. “A Star is Born” with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, “Green Book” and “The Favourite” were all close behind with five nominations apiece.Adams earned acting bids for the limited TV series “Sharp Objects” and for “Vice.”___Online:https://www.goldenglobes.com/___Lynn Elber is a national television columnist for The Associated Press.

Season 3 of “Stranger Things” will be set in the summer of 1985. (Coca-Cola via AP) by The Associated Press Posted May 21, 2019 6:34 am PDT New Coke, from 1985, makes comeback with ‘Stranger Things’ AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK — Coca-Cola drinkers will get a chance to relive one of the company’s darker chapters as New Coke makes a comeback under a partnership with the Netflix drama “Stranger Things,” the companies announced Tuesday.Season 3 of the show will take place in the summer of 1985, when Coca-Cola changed its formula for Coke. New Coke was considered one of the biggest marketing blunders of all time and the new version was dropped after 79 days, though sales of the original Coca-Cola rebounded.“The summer of 1985 did in fact change everything for us with the introduction of New Coke, which was also arguably one of the biggest pop culture moments of that year,” said Oana Vlad, director of Coca-Cola Trademark, Coca-Cola North America.Workers had to retrieve the New Coke recipe from the safe for the “Stranger Things” partnership.“All told, everything took about six months and was top secret,” said Peter Shoemaker, director of sparkling category commercialization.Workers also had to recreate the logo and the slightly different Coke red for the cans from more than 30 years ago.“The partnership with Coke gives Netflix the opportunity to reach a massive audience via one of the most recognizable brands in the world in a deeply authentic way,” said Netflix Head of Global Partner Marketing Barry Smyth.Beginning Thursday, Coca-Cola will release a limited number of cans of New Coke as part of a “Stranger Things” package. An “upside-down” Stranger Things-inspired vending machine will also pop up in select cities this summer to dispense free cans of New Coke for a limited time.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Sculpture park to open in Geroskipou

August 9, 2019

first_imgA NEW sculpture park in Geroskipou will be inaugurated by the Cyprus Minister of Education and Culture on Sunday.The new park will see ten completed sculptures created by different artists from all over the world, and has a theme of ‘Myths and Sculptures,’ and is part of the official ‘Pafos2017’ cultural capital programme.A spokeswoman for Pafos2017 told the Cyprus Mail: “The artists, started working at the park from the 9th September 2017 and the works will be completed on Sunday 24th, when the inauguration will take place at 7pm by the Minister, Kostas Kadis.”The ten participating artists from Cyprus and abroad were chosen from an open call for the 1st International Sculpture Symposium and Sculpture Park and the Pafos2017 Organisation received 207 proposals from 29 countries, she said.The selected proposals which will be installed at the new park are :“Muse”,  Emin Petrosyan (Armenia), “Europa”-“Ariadne auf Naxos”, Gao Meng (China) , “Fragile”, Genti Tavanhili  (Italy) , “Untitled”Giorgos Moisi (Cyprus), “Sanctuary” Lanitis Christos (Cyprus) ,“The song of Serene”, Arsenty Lysenkov (Cyprus), “ Ariadne’s thread‘’,  Negara Ana Maria Aurelia (Romania),  “Great head of Aphrodite”, Olaf Klepzig (Germany), “The Rebellion of Prometheus”, Agnessa Petrova (Bulgaria) and “Antique torso”, Viktor Korneev (Sweden).The project is curated by Paphos based artist Katerina Foukara, who came up with the proposal for a sculpture park ahead of Paphos’ winning bid for the European cultural capital title. She also has her own studio in Kissonerga, and is well known for her paintings, drawings and sculpture.She explained that the decision was made to use local Cypriot stone, sourced from a quarry close to Limassol as a way to connect the past with the present.“This is a way to bring the sculpture closer to history, as many of the antiquities used this stone,” she said.She added that that the stone is like a limestone, but is quite hard and not smooth, and unlike granite and other materials often used.Pafos2017 spokeswoman said that entrance to the park is free, adding that: “The sculpture park connects the artistic objectives of a European Capital of Culture with a substantial intervention in the urban landscape, creating the ideal conditions for dialogue between people and the arts, and also the environment.”She added that such projects prove that the European Capital of Culture creates the conditions and framework which allow for sustainable projects and provides a way for artists to contribute to the aim to develope conscience and change mentality.Foukara said that a variety of projects had won final approval, some realistic, some abstract and using different techniques.“The artists come from various backgrounds and are well- known in their home countries, they have been staying in Geroskipou for the last fifteen days,” she added.The curator said that this is the first time that she has organised such a large, International project and that in line with the idea of a symposium, the artists have been spending time together, exchanging ideas and discussing views.The sculptors have been fascinating visitors to the park with their work in recent days, as they have been able to watch cubes of stone being transformed into stunning works of art and watch the different techniques involved.“It has been particularly interesting and informative for the schools which have visited, as the onus these days is on technology, video and so on. This is a more organic approach,” she said.She added that the mayor of Geroskipou, Michalis Pavlides, who is currently abroad, has been fully supportive of the venture and aims to make the sculpture symposium an annual event which will add further beautiful sculptures to the park every year, she said.Half of the sculptures were installed on Thursday, the rest will be put in place on Friday, ahead of the official opening.The new park is found close to the central square of Geroskipou and was previously an unused open space.“This new park is an outdoor museum and is a way, through art, to join the different cultures,” she said. You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

DD and the rise of the fantasy world geek

August 9, 2019

first_imgWe’re all fantasy world geeks now. Never has it been so mainstream.Endgame, the latest Avenger’s film, is breaking numerous box office records. Over 17 million tuned in (legally) to last week’s episode four of the last season of Game of Thrones, every twist and turn of which has been ruthlessly and endlessly dissected online and in offices and homes the world over.None of this comes as any surprise to the growing number of locally grown fantasists drawn to what was once the epitome of uncool, the tabletop role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons or D&D.First released in 1974, the then-difficult and complex game rose to popularity in the late 70s and 80s, drawing teenage boys into shady basements and bedrooms. Their withdrawal into another world had them typecast as socially awkward outsider groups composed of so-called nerds and geeks.No longer though. In 2014 the release of the ‘newbie-friendly’ fifth edition of the game coincided with the first Cyprus Comic Con and sparked more than just a revival. It’s now almost mainstream. It’s certainly not uncool.The nostalgia for the pre-internet, computer games and mobile phones of the 1980s reflected in the TV hit Stranger Things also helped, though only to a degree.“There definitely is a revival nowadays, with a lot more people interested in playing the game,” said a staff member of Isengard fantasy shop in central Nicosia, where D&D enthusiasts flock every Tuesday to play what the shop calls ‘the best table-top roleplaying game.’At the core of D&D is storytelling and agency, as the group is guided through an adventure by an assigned Dungeon Master, while players choose their own path as the game goes along.“The game lets you create your own character, and you often accidentally find that even while roleplaying, you’re expressing parts of yourself,” an 18-year-old D&D player, Johnathan Fanis, told the Sunday Mail.A D&D roleplay session in progressFanis said he was introduced to the game around two years ago by an older friend, and now plays as part of a seven-member group roughly every week.“We’re almost all drama students, so you can see how it might get hectic, but it’s all just fun,” Fanis said.Elsewhere the D&D revival has been credited with the influence of Stranger Things, the first episode of which screened in mid-July 2016, with the opening scene depicting four young boys sitting around a table in a basement with a game of the original D&D in full swing. But D&D aficionados here say the show’s influence has been limited.“Pop culture, and fantasy series and movies may have boosted hype for the game, but ultimately when people tried playing, they were demotivated by the difficulty and just gave up eventually,” Isengard told the Sunday Mail.Helen Christofi, one of the organisers of Cyprus Comic Con and an avid D&D player, agrees that as “one of the revival people”, as she calls herself, Stranger Things and a general pop culture 80s nostalgia had nothing to do with her D&D interest that began five to six years ago.According to Isengard, “the reasons for the increased interest for D&D in Cyprus go beyond Stranger Things and the hype for fantasy series and movies. For starters what we see being played in Stranger Things isn’t D&D, it’s another version which has also been released as a separate thing, and mainly satisfied an already growing interest in the game.”Both Christofi and Isengard say the main source of attraction for the increasing numbers of local D&D players is the table-top’s fifth edition, which is said to be much easier and more enjoyable because of it.For Christofi, the Cyprus Comic Con is also essential to the game’s current popularity.Helen Christofi’s instruction manual and diceAt this year’s Comic Con, which took place last month, Isengard ran introductory campaigns all day long for new and experienced players, offered on-demand tutorials, and assistance by three experienced Dungeon Masters for future or current DMs.Christofi, who plays the game with a group of her own, starting a new campaign every two to three months, noted that “recently, quite a few new groups are forming.”A significant thrust, she said, is social media, where people can find group members and form new groups.More are bound to continue sprouting up across the island. According to Isengard, “wherever there’s a university, there’s a D&D group, and interest grows like mushrooms or a plague!”Gaming hub pubs have also began popping up and spreading the spirit. Nicosia’s newest is Spheresterion, which currently features arcades, pinball tables, board games and, of course, beer.This month, the pub has also began hosting D&D tutorial and session nights, organised by Table Fables, a newly formed group of fantasy, table-top and roleplay fans.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoVarosha move merely a ‘PR stunt’ by Ozersay, expert saysUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

And the variation in skull size and facial shape is no greater than in other species, When these hominins "toed off, A third group at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City,S.C. issued this statement: “Attorney General Pruitt demonstrated today why he is the right pick to lead the EPA He knows the agency must work within its statutory limitations It cannot simply go around Congress consume authority it doesn’t have to target particular industries of our economy on which many states depend and through its actions destroy jobs In the past ten years according to a recent report the EPA has mandated $1 trillion in rules three-quarters of which have occurred on President Obama’s watch This heavy-handed approach to regulation only harms our nation’s prosperity and consolidates power in the regulatory state Attorney General Pruitt’s federalist approach to regulation presents the states as partners in the effort to ensure that our air and water are clean We urge the Senate to quickly confirm Attorney General Pruitt’s nomination to lead the EPA” Pruitt: Climate change no more important than any other issue Senator Jeff Merkley (D–OR) asked Pruitt about the urgency of combating climate change “I think it’s very difficult to prioritize” said Pruitt He said climate change which he called the “C02 issue” wasn’t any more important than any other issue Instead Pruitt suggested he only intends to do what the law required and nothing more Whitehouse asks Pruitt about languishing about email request Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) asked Pruitt about the Oklahoma Attorney General’s office lack of response to an open records request made under state law for emails between his office and fossil fuel companies it regulated The office acknowledged that it had identified 3000 documents that were covered by that request but apparently hadn’t provided any of them for more than 740 days Whitehouse asked how Pruitt could be trusted to handle conflict of interest properly when he hadn’t release those documents Pruitt responded that he wasn’t personally involved with open records requests Pruitt: Mostly dry streams should be covered by stream regulations Cardin asked Pruitt how he defined the “waters of the United States” Law gives the US government the power to control and regulate all navigable waters but is vague on what other waterways the EPA is empowered to regulate The issue has become a major point of tension between some members of Congress and the Obama administration which has issued new rules attempting to improve protection of small wetlands and intermittent waterways (the new rules have been blocked by federal judges) Pruitt didn’t provide specifics about what he believed should be regulated except for saying that the US government shouldn’t be regulating creeks that stay dry most of the year In response to further questions by Sen Joni Ernst (R-IA) Pruitt said he would not regulate “ordinary farming practices” under regulations designed to protect the waters of the United States Inhofe uses hearing to repeat climate hoax claims Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) used the hearing to repeatedly criticize climate scientists and climate change research accusing the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change of “fraud” and of perpetrating an “outrageous lie” Inhofe also accused the Obama administration of prematurely issuing vehicle fuel economy standards for political reasons and asked Pruitt if he would review them Pruitt agreed the regulation “merits review” Price Bullish on NIH Budget Boosters of NIH may take heart from Price’s comments on the agency’s budget Price had spent 2 hours testifying before the Senate’s Health Education Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee when Senator Susan Collins (R–ME) declared herself a passionate partisan for biomedical research and noted her founding roles in the Senate’s Alzheimer’s disease task force and its Diabetes Caucus She then asked Price an orthopedic surgeon who represents the affluent suburbs north of Atlanta in the House of Representatives: “Do you support the increases for NIH that we have passed in the last year and are on track to pass this year” A lunch break was imminent and Price’s response was brief: “NIH is a treasure for our country” he said and one of the avenues through which medical innovation happens “I supported the increase” This past July a House panel proposed increasing NIH’s budget by $125 billion to $333 billion in fiscal year 2017 (which began this past October) Senate funders proposed an even heftier $2 billion boost equal to the increase the agency received in 2016 So far Congress hasn’t settled on a final 2017 budget for NIH; like much of the government the agency is operating under a continuing resolution that has essentially frozen its spending Final action is expected this spring The HELP Committee doesn’t actually have power of approval over the Price nomination That vote falls to the Senate Finance Committee before which Price is scheduled to appear next Tuesday Sanders challenges Pruitt on climate oil-related quakes Sanders asked Pruitt why the climate was changing Pruitt who repeatedly referred to climate change as “the CO2 issue” refused to say humans were the main reason the climate was changing allowing only that humans had “impacted” the climate Sanders also asked about what actions Pruitt had taken to punish oil companies whose wastewater disposal activities had contributed to causing earthquakes in Oklahoma Sanders announced he would not vote for Pruitt after he refused to say more than the earthquakes “concerned” him Won’t commit to protecting California’s tougher fuel standards Pruitt says California has a special waiver to enforce fuel standards that go beyond federal standards Harris asked whether Pruitt would commit to upholding that waiver Pruitt declined saying he would “review” the issue Pruitt: I’ll make EPA regulatory data available to all In response to a question by Senator John Boozman (R–AR) Pruitt agrees to release the scientific data behind EPA rulemaking (Editor’s note: The exchange appears to reference longstanding complaints by Republicans in Congress that EPA does not fully share the data that underpin some regulations Environmental groups have argued that the complaints are part of an effort to paralyze EPA’s regulatory efforts by enabling endless challenges to technical information) Won’t necessarily recuse myself from lawsuits I helped file Pruitt says There are still eight lawsuits against EPA that were filed by Pruitt Senator Ed Markey (D–MA) asked whether he would recuse himself from those cases Pruitt refused to preemptively recuse himself unless directed by the EPA ethics council Pruitt: Booker jabs on childhood asthma Senator Cory Booker (D–NJ) made a connection between air pollution and asthma Pruitt has joined with oil companies in suing EPA Booker noted The senator then asked Pruitt how many suits he’d brought on behalf of children with asthma (who often suffer in polluted air) Pruitt said he only brought lawsuits that he had legal “standing” to bring Merkley focuses on Pruitt’s oil industry ties Senator Jeff Merkley (D–OR) repeatedly questioned Pruitt about his connections to fossil fuel industries He brought up a letter that Pruitt had sent to EPA questioning the cost-benefit analyses of methane regulations The letter was mostly written by Devon Energy a fossil fuel company reporters revealed Merkley repeatedly asked whether Pruitt was using his office as a direct extension of an oil company Pruitt said he was “representing the interest of an industry in Oklahoma” Pruitt said he was concerned about methane as a greenhouse gas but not “deeply concerned” Pruitt declines to disclose advocacy group funding sources Pruitt was questioned about his role in the Rule of Law Defense Fund an organization of Republican attorneys general He recently resigned as chairman of the group Merkley asked how much money he had solicited for the group from companies owned by the Koch family and Devon Energy Pruitt refused to answer That funding didn’t have to be disclosed publicly he said Cardin plumbs Pruitt’s views on lead Cardin asked whether there were any safe levels of lead that could be taken into the human body and what role Pruitt believed the Clean Air and Water Act played in regulating lead Pruitt said he hadn’t “looked at the scientific research on that” but lead in water concerned him He also said that despite lawsuits he’d filed to prevent EPA from enforcing lead pollution rules he believed EPA had a role in regulating air and water quality especially across state lines Pruitt: Regulators too unpredictable Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R–WV) asked whether Pruitt would work harder to make economic evaluations of regulations mentioning the coal industry downturn in her state Pruitt suggested there was too much regulation “Often times those that are regulated don’t know what’s expected of them” he said saying he supported the rule of law EPA should regulate mercury emissions Pruitt says but questions EPA’s cost-benefit studies Pruitt has repeatedly sued EPA over its efforts to regulate mercury pollution from coal fired power plants Senator Tom Carper (D–DE) asked whether in light of those lawsuits he supported EPA’s regulation of mercury emissions Pruitt said mercury should be regulated under existing law but questioned the cost-benefit analyses EPA did to justify regulations Pruitt: Climate change occuring but human role hard to measure Climate change is happening and humans play a role Pruitt said in his opening statement but there is "continued debate and dialogue” about the human role climate change impacts and what to do about them He also cited climate change as an area where disagreements should be debated in a civil manner Highlights from Zinke’s testimony Senator Joe Manchin (D–WV) suggested that it was hypocritical for environmentalists to oppose burning coal while allowing dead trees in forests to rot Manchin asked Zinke about forest management and the management of dead trees Zinke said he believed most management was done through forest fires; earlier he said he believed fires are a major contributor to climate change Manchin reiterated his belief that rotting dead lumber was a major contributor to climate change “Lots of CO2 here” Manchin said referencing his wooden desk Asked by Manchin whether he could work with environmentalists Zinke said “there’s extremists on both sides” No one size fits all stream rules Stream protection policies should be different in different parts of the country because not all environments are the same Zinke said (Editor’s note: Some Republicans have complained that Obama administration stream protection policies are too rigid and not responsive to geographic differences and the needs of different kinds of land uses Environmentalists have argued such arguments are aimed at weakening regulatory protections) A spotlight on access to water “Clean water is a right not a privilege" Zinke said He highlighted investments in infrastructure as a way to preserve access to water especially in Western states and isolated areas Logging could help with climate change by curbing fires Zinke suggested harvesting more timber will help with climate change saying that forest fires contributed more to climate change than coal “The statistics I have from a single summer of forest fires in Rosebud County [in Montana] … [they] emitted more particulate in the air in that single season than 3000 years of coal strip” Zinke said Declines to stand by letter he signed suggesting climate change a threat to national security Franken asked Zinke about a letter he had signed as a Montana state legislator in 2010 In it Zinke called climate change a “threat multiplier” in respect to the United States’s national security Zinke declined to state whether he still agreed with his stance in the letter He said he wasn’t an “expert” and that there was “no model today that can predict tomorrow … we need objective science to figure a model out” "The war on coal is real" “The war on coal is real” Zinke said in response to a question by Senator John Barrasso (R–WY) He called for more research and development into “clean coal” saying that coal was part of his all-of-the-above approach to energy A vow to advocate for science funding and information sharing In response to a question from Senator Debbie Stabenow (D–MI) Zinke committed to advocating for maintaining funding levels for science and scientists within DOI without respect to ideology “Management decisions should be based on objective science” he said He also said there should be more research sharing between different public agencies and private institutions Still "debate over human role in climate change" and nod to "all-of-the-above" energy strategy Sanders asked Zinke whether President-elect Donald Trump was correct in calling climate change a “hoax” Zinke acknowledged climate is changing and humans have had an influence but claimed there is a lot of “debate” over how much of a role humans have played and what can or should be done to combat climate change He also said he would listen to scientists from the United States Geological Survey which is a part of DOI on climate issues In response to another question from Sanders Zinke said he supported extracting fossil fuel from public lands along with supporting wind and solar power calling for an “all-of-the-above” approach to energy production Highlights from Pompeo and Mattis hearings Pompeo ducks on climate “Frankly as the director of CIA I would prefer today not to get into the details of climate debate” he said in response to a question from Harris about whether he accepted climate science (She referred specifically to findings by NASA’s Earth Science division) As head of CIA Pompeo said his role would be “different” Previously Pompeo has said that scientists think “lots of different things” about climate change and called President Barack Obama’s climate policies “radical” (In a speech last November John Brennan the outgoing CIA director called climate change one of the “deeper causes of this rising instability” in places like Libya Syria and Ukraine) Mattis on Department of Defense research and the “active” Arctic Mattis was not asked directly about climate change but his answer to a question about competition with Russia in the Arctic suggests he believes climate change is having an impact on national security Noting that melting sea ice is opening new shipping lanes Mattis said the Arctic is now an “active area” where the United States will need to assert its sovereignty Senator Elizabeth Warren (D–MA) asked Mattis about how the Department of Defense (DOD) should dole out its research funding noting that her state hosts one of the nation’s top research universities the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Mattis agreed with Warren’s assertion that DOD should “assess the intellectual resources” of an area when deciding which organizations the military partners with for scientific research Highlights from Tillerson’s hearing Climate change not "imminent national security threat" “I don’t see [climate change] as the imminent national security threat as others do” Tillerson said He also declined to make any direct links between an increase in natural disasters and climate change calling the scientific literature “inconclusive” When asked by Merkley whether the United States should step up in combatting climate change to match major efforts in countries including India and China Tillerson said “I think we have stepped up” Breaks with Trump on nuclear proliferation Tillerson “does not agree” with Trump’s statements suggesting that countries like Japan South Korea and Saudi Arabia should get nuclear weapons Ebola outbreak exposed "deficiency" at World Health Organization In response to questions by Senator Johnny Isakson (R–GA) about the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Tillerson praised the US response to disease outbreaks but suggested the ebola outbreak “exposed deficiency in the World Health Organization and how they responded” United States would be "better served" by staying in Paris pact Senator Tom Udall (D–NM) asked Tillerson directly whether he supports the Paris climate agreement The United States would be “better served by being at that table” Tillerson replied For context: Trump has called climate change a “hoax” and said during the campaign that he would “cancel” the Paris Agreement More recently Trump has suggested he would have an “open mind” about the accord Paris Agreement "looks like a treaty" Senator Ron Johnson (R–WI) asked Tillerson about the executive branch making treaties without proper legislative input citing the Paris climate accord (which is not technically a treaty so did not need Senate ratification) among other treaties Tillerson said he “respects the proper roles of both branches of government He also said the Paris climate accord “looks like a treaty” It’s still unclear exactly where Tillerson stands on withdrawing or not withdrawing from the agreement Ducks question about oil lobbying group Booker asks Tillerson whether Exxon was part of USA*Engage an oil lobbying group who has lobbied against government sanctions in the past Tillerson refused to answer and referred the question to Exxon Exxon appears to have been part of USA*Engage A press release from USA*Engage suggests that Exxon’s Robert W Haines the manager of international relations for the company was chairman of the lobbying organization in 2003 He served until 2007 Green think tank: Tillerson’s comments don’t go far enough “It’s encouraging that Tillerson recognizes that climate change requires a global response and that the US must be at the table But he must go further” David Waskow director of International Climate Initiatives at the World Resources Institute a Washington DC.

airport or elsewhere,” For all the latest Sports News, In Alzheimer?cosy? One could argue that in the decade leading up to the year 2000as we experienced the Narasimha Rao-led liberalisationwealth was created in competitive industries like ITretail and automotive In the next decadewealth creation seems to have shifted to industries where the firmans of our sultans (how else can we describe our rulers ensconced in Delhi) have been the driversthat isin cosy industries Extractive businesses (iron oregasbauxite) or real estate (where billions of rupees of value hinge on one land use or FSI directive) or public works (for examplehighways) or SEZs (land-grabs with a reverse Robin Hood logic where the tyrant state takes from the poor peasant Peter to give to the rich magnate Paul)telecom (where a common resource is made artificially scarce by reserving large portions for the so-called defence of the realm and is then doled out bit by bit to favoured courtiers) these are the areas of the economy that have taken the lead in wealth creation Our babus do not need to visit Mauritius or Cyprus to find out how this wealth is salted away in benami instruments Just taking a look at the market capitalisations of listed public companies will suffice Regulatory capture is an idea first articulated by the Nobel-prize winning economist George Stigler who made detailed studies of regulated industries like railroads He concluded that there was a strong incentive for companies in these industries to persuade regulators to write seemingly innocuous rules in a manner that favoured the companies rather than consumers or the country at large Stigler showed that in many cases the same individuals went back and forth between the companies where they were senior executives and the regulatory agencies where they were now senior officials The pattern of erstwhile regulators turning into lobbyists for the regulated companies is repeating itself in India The only way to prevent this outcomewhich is both morally unfair and economically inefficient (as total value and output gets reduced)is to try and evolve institutional processes that are consciously transparent and designed to encourage competitioneasy entry and easy exit The question then is howdespite all the cosy alliances that exist in the USwealth creation has still remained to such a large extent in competitive rather than cosy industries After allthe richest Americans still are persons who have created value in fiercely competitive industries like IT Think of Gates JobsEllison and so on These names have not been replaced by the founders of Halliburton or Blackwater No one argues that there is no crony capitalism in the US It just appears that in relative terms it has less weightage To attempt to eliminate crony capitalism in India is not a task that even Lord Krishna would agree to undertake What we can aim for though is to try to reduce its importance In Indiaautonomous agencies created by constitutional mandate (for examplethe Election Commissionthe Supreme Courtthe Comptroller and Auditor General) or by statute (for examplethe Reserve BankSebi) have so far functioned well and have even survived periods of aberrant and compromised leadership We need to set up more of these and bring them under the direct supervision of Parliament rather than the existing system where ministers and permanent civil servants exercise excessive control Edmund Burke was in favour of parliamentary oversight He felt that this would ensure a greater degree of transparency and popular legitimacy There is nothing in the Constitution of India that prevents us from having the Trai being genuinely autonomous and being grilled every quarter by a permanent Oversight Committee of Parliament We should give this option serious consideration Can one be optimistic that the cathartic effects of the present crisis will lead to systemic corrections that move more of our economic value creation into competitive rather than into cosy areas Unfortunately recent developments give no case for any such sanguine expectation Even in the USthe separation of banking and commerce is a basic feature of the economic system The Dutt and Hazari commissions reports of the 60s (who remembers them) produced so much evidence that banks controlled by business houses (a uniquely Indian English expression) were involved in incestuous dealings And yetthe powers that be are now contemplating giving banking licences to these same business houses and are trying to justify this as being in line with free-market ideas Such ironies are inevitable when history is forgotten But one still hopes for the best Having been a prime mover of the economic liberation of Indiaone hopes that our prime minister would not like to go down in history as having presided over an era of
