How Northwest Communities Are Stopping Big Oil Projects 11.12.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Help preserve a news source with integrity at its core: Donate to the independent media at Truthout. "This is more fun than I've ever had in my life," Don Steinke told me when I called him this month. Steinke, a retired science teacher, is a leader in the fight to stop what would be the nation's largest oil-by-rail terminal. This month, the state agency in charge of reviewing the application  voted unanimously to oppose  the terminal -- a vote that could spell the end of the project. First proposed in 2013 by Vancouver Energy, the terminal would have been built along the Columbia River in Vancouver, Washington;  360,000 barrels of oil a day  were to be brought by rail and then loaded on ships for transport to West Coast refineries. But the project quickly ran into local opposition. The power of local organizing to stop this project got my attention. The opposition is fueled both by local impacts on water and air, and by the fact that building new oil-transport infrastructure is a terrible idea at a time ...

Transformation to wind and solar could be achieved with low indirect greenhouse gas emissions 8.12.2017 Environmental News Network
Different low carbon technologies from wind or solar energy to fossil carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) differ greatly when it comes to indirect greenhouse gas emissions in their life cycle. This is the result of a comprehensive new study conducted by an international team of scientists that is now published in the journal Nature Energy. Unlike what some critics argue, the researchers not only found that wind and solar energy belong to the more favorable when it comes to life-cycle emissions. They also show that a full decarbonization of the global power sector by scaling up these technologies would induce only modest indirect greenhouse gas emissions – and hence not impede the transformation towards a climate-friendly power system.
