In order to fight climate change and help cover the expensive burden, Alaskan lawmakers have come up with a solution: drill more. Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, who supports drilling in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, voiced her long-held opinion during a hearing of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. During the November 2 meeting, Murkowski, the committee's chair, clearly stated she wants not all of the 1.5-million-acre land—known as the "1002 area"— but rather 2,000 acres of the refuge. "And we have waited for nearly 40 years for the right technologies to come along, so that the footprint of development is small enough to ensure that the environment continues to be respected and will not be harmed," she said during the opening statement of the hearing. "This is not a choice between energy and the environment." But those against the efforts say that drilling in the region will affect the wildlife economy. In particular, the Porcupine caribou … [Read more...] about Alaska Wants to Drill for More Oil to Cover the Costs of Climate Change
On a recent sunny afternoon in Iceland, a group of scientists filed off a bus and took in a view of geological grandeur that, nearly everywhere else on Earth, would require a deep-diving submersible. They were standing in Thingvellir, a sweeping valley surrounded by majestic cliffs; the valley is one tiny portion of a long seam between tectonic plates that runs the length of the Atlantic Ocean.In Iceland, this seam, called the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, takes a brief jog over land before disappearing again beneath the sea. The ridge is essentially a volcanic seam many thousands of miles long, where magma is belched from deep inside the Earth, creating new crust and pushing tectonic plates apart. It moves at a rate of about 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) per year."You stand there, and you can imagine you're on the floor of the ocean," said Ken Verosub, a distinguished professor of geology at the University of California, Davis. He and other scientists were attending a geology conference; a field … [Read more...] about Iceland Offers Rare Glimpse of Tectonic Meeting Place
A Houston real estate firm is buying the Rivera apartment complex near Maverick Park. The Barvin Group, which also owns the Soap Factory apartments on Martin Street, plans to close on the property at 1130 Broadway later this month, said Susan Pohl, the firm’s director of acquisitions. “We think it’s a great location on Broadway,” she said. “There’s so much going on between there and the Pearl.” Pohl declined to disclose the purchase price, but the Bexar Appraisal District assessed the 302-unit complex at $55 million this year. The Rivera is owned by an entity affiliated with Austin-based Cypress Real Estate Advisors, property records show. John Burnham, who’s listed online as a managing principal at Cypress, declined to comment because the sale is pending.

Ian King, Sky News Business PresenterThe water industry is under siege. According to research by the Legatum Institute think-tank, 83% of the public support Jeremy Corbyn's pledge to renationalise the water and sewerage companies privatised 28 years ago.Even the Financial Times, which sees itself as a critical friend of business, has just run a series of attacks on the industry so splenetic one could be forgiven for thinking Thames Water had flooded the FT editor's cellar with effluent.It accused the industry of 'ripping-off' customers.There are, however, many reasons why renationalisation would be a waste of time and money. Advertisement First, it is worth recalling why the industry in England and Wales - it remains state-owned in Scotland and Northern Ireland - was privatised in the first place.It was because the government of the day could see a looming need for huge investment, mainly to comply with European regulations, largely to impose higher environmental standards … [Read more...] about Sky Views: Jeremy Corbyn’s water vow could be costly
