On the Blogs: Unviable Export Projects in Northwest U.S.

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Daniel Jack Chasan for Crosscut.com:Major fossil fuel export projects are still on the table. Gateway Pacific and Millennium are still under review, the Tesoro Savage plans for an oil shipping facility at the Port of Vancouver, has gotten a lease extension. Two methanol plants are planned along the Columbia River. Two oil pipelines and a coal port expansion are still being considered in British Columbia.But do any of them still make economic sense? Some critics have long doubted it. As the Vancouver Columbian reported, some analysts still see good sense, for instance, in the Tesoro Corp. and Savage Company’s plans for a terminal in Vancouver but even they are more cautious about full development of an oil terminal there.An environmental impact statement for the Millennium project came out April 29, noting that Millennium “states further development of western U.S. coalfields and the growth of Asian market demand for U.S. coal is expected to continue.” No doubt that was truly the expectation in 2010 when the project received its first permit. But now? The past tense seems more appropriate.“Coal’s a dead man walking,” says Clark Williams-Derry of the Sightline Institute, which opposes the coal projects. He talks about “zombie proposals.”“There’s no way you can get U.S. coal off the coast at anything approaching a profit,” he says.Environmentalists have predicted coal’s demise before, only to see it rise again when the cost of other fossil fuels gets high enough to make it economically attractive again. But this time may be different. “The recent bankruptcies of the nation’s leading coal producers are the latest benchmark in the steady decline of the coal industry,” Tom Sanzillo and David Schlissel of the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis wrote recently in a New York Times op-ed.“The U.S. economy has experienced a slow, modest recovery at the same time the coal industry has collapsed,” explains Tom Sanzillo. “This decoupling is historically unprecedented.”Full item: How economics turned NW coal ports into the walking dead On the Blogs: Unviable Export Projects in Northwest U.S.last_img read more

Indonesia accepts reconnaissance​​​​​​​ drone, helicopter grant from US

first_imgThe Defense Ministry has accepted a grant comprising 14 Insitu ScanEagle drones and three Bell 412 helicopters from the United States, as Jakarta expects the equipment to further strengthen the Navy’s maritime patrol operations throughout the archipelago.House of Representatives Commission I overseeing intelligence, defense and foreign affairs approved on Wednesday the grant from the US, although lawmakers reminded the Defense Ministry to conduct reassessment on the conditions of the drones and the helicopters so as to prioritize  national security.”We ask the government to take precautionary measures […] such as to ensure that there are no wiretapping tools left attached unintentionally [in the equipment],” House Commission I chairwoman Meutya Hafid said, “There is no need to be overly suspicious when a country that has a defense cooperation with [Indonesia] decides to give a grant but cautiousness is still necessary.” Commission I’s decision followed a meeting on Wednesday with Defense Ministry officials, including Deputy Minister Sakti Wahyu Trenggono.Read also: Made in Indonesia: First long-range military drone unveiled in BandungSakti said in 2014 to 2015, the US offered the Indonesian Military (TNI) a grant under Foreign Military Financing (FMF). The Navy accepted the offer in 2017, which covered a grant consisting of the ScanEagle drones, unmanned aerial vehicles built by Boeing subsidiary Insitu and an upgrade of Bell 412 helicopters.The Defense Ministry had set up an assessment team to examine the technical, economic and political aspects before deciding whether it was strategic for Indonesia to accept the grant.The US$28.3 million-worth ScanEagle drones were expected to improve the Navy’s intelligence surveillance reconnaissance and ultimately strengthen the nation’s defense system, Sakti said.He also believed that the three Bell 412 helicopters worth US$6.3 million would be able to improve the Navy’s effectiveness in carrying out military operations and increase the capabilities of national defense.“ScanEagle drones will only be used by the Navy for special purposes. We will only spend around Rp 10 billion [US$719,886] to integrate and ensure the data security of the equipment with other defense systems,” Sakti said, adding that state-owned electronic components maker PT LEN Industri would handle the integration.Topics :last_img read more

4th quarter fiasco

first_imgIn the playoffs, Bryant relies on his teammates to keep the ball moving, to set screens and picks. When that didn’t happen in the fourth quarter, it was Bryant against the world, and the world won. “You’ve got to get some stops (on defense), get out in transition and get some easy opportunities,” Bryant said. “Getting to the free-throw line helps a lot as well. You have to spread the floor, you have to execute properly, you have to set strong screens and look for a lot of action off the ball. “It’s all execution. Particularly when you go into the playoffs, you’re going to face experienced teams, and what they’re going to try to do is take away your strengths. We have to learn, collectively, how to counter-punch. As a unit, we have to be able to make adjustments to what they’re doing defensively.” Bryant didn’t get help in another way. When he did pass the ball, his teammates couldn’t make shots. While Bryant’s fourth-quarter flameout drew headlines, Lamar Odom missed three of four shots, Maurice Evans went 0 for 3, and Farmar and Sasha Vujacic missed 3-pointers on their only attempts in the period. “So (Bryant) was 1 for 10 and they were 3 for 11?” Jackson said to reporters. “They pretty much all were cold, so I don’t know if anybody can put any blame on anyone in that situation.” Bryant didn’t necessarily put blame on his teammates for the missed shots, but admitted that their inability to hit shots in the fourth quarter added to his frustration level. “Yeah, it’s frustrating,” Bryant said. “But you know, there’s nothing you can do except stick with it. You just have to go with it. It’s tough to beat three or four guys off the dribble. That’s crazy. When we get opportunities we have to capitalize on the shots.” If Bryant and the Lakers can take solace from anything in Game 1, it’s the success Bryant had in the first half despite pressure from Bell, his longtime nemesis, with some help from Shawn Marion. Marion’s length can cause problems when he shifts over to put pressure on Bryant, but most of the defense comes from Bell, with whom he has developed a spirited rivalry. Bryant said a military-based book was given to him last year by Jackson, one that “talked about warriors respecting other warriors,” and he found relevance to his personal showdown with Bell. “It gave me a new perspective on things,” Bryant said. “I have a tremendous amount of respect for Raja and what he does, and I enjoy matching up against him because I know he’s going to play hard every possession, which makes it fun for me.” In Game 1, however, the fun ended after three quarters.

The Lakers will have to find the answer quickly if they are to avoid falling into a 2-0 series hole tonight against the Suns, and Bryant’s consistency likely will depend on his teammates’ consistency. “We made it tough on him as a team,” Lakers point guard Jordan Farmar said before Monday’s practice at USAirways Center. “We got away from what was working, which was getting easy shots, running our offense, making them play defense, coming off screens and moving without the ball. “We just made him work too hard. We need to stick with what got us there, keep running our offense and make it easy on him, because that makes it easy on the rest of the team.” It’s no stretch to say the Lakers played their best half of the season Sunday. Bryant carried the way, particularly late in the first half when he scored 15 consecutive points, but he got open looks – even with lockdown defender Raja Bell in his face – because he was usually within the flow of a functioning offense. The isolation plays Bryant thrives on during the regular season disappear in the playoffs. As Bryant noted, when he looked up Sunday, he often saw four defenders between him and the basket. PHOENIX – As often as it might seem otherwise, the Lakers are not a one-man team. Even when Kobe Bryant is brilliant, as he was through three quarters of Game 1 of their first-round playoff series when he torched Phoenix for 35 points and seemed to hold the game in his palm, his teammates remain relevant. That became evident in the fourth quarter, when the Lakers’ supporting cast failed to move the ball and Bryant’s shots finally stopped falling. The offense bogged down, Bryant fired up shots in the face of double-teams and missed nine of his 10attempts as the Lakers lost 95-87. In the aftermath, questions became Bryant-centric. Did he tire, as Phil Jackson suggested? Did he try to do too much, a criticism that often follows Bryant? Or did the Lakers themselves do the most damage? last_img read more
