Enviros take aim at TransCanada pipeline 27.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Boston • Environmentalists are again taking aim at the company that proposed the Keystone XL pipeline — this time for another of its projects they fear would send hundreds of supertankers laden with crude oil down the Atlantic coast to refineries in Texas and Louisiana.

It appears many of them, knowing that Trump will lose, did not want to be associated with his demagoguery, let alone his defeat. But do they expect that Trumpism will just blow over after one election cycle? One Republican Committee member, from the Tea Party stronghold of DuPage County, Illinois, refuses to fall for that. The resignation letter he published at Huffpo is a fiery denunciation of the past 25 years of Republican politics: At the national level, the delusions necessary to sustain our Cold War coalition were becoming dangerous long before Donald Trump arrived. From tax policy to climate change, we have found ourselves less at odds with philosophical rivals than with the fundamentals of math, science and objective reality. The Iraq War, the financial meltdown, the utter failure of supply-side theory, climate denial, and our strange pursuit ...

Business News Roundup, July 26 26.7.2016 SFGate: Business & Technology
Jet engine exhaust from airliners endangers human health and adds to climate change, the government found Monday in taking the first step toward regulating those emissions. The Environmental Protection Agency said it will use its authority under the Clean Air Act to impose limits on aircraft emissions. Jet engines spew significant amounts of greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide and methane, into the upper atmosphere, where they trap heat from the sun. [...] proposed rules such as imposing fuel-efficiency standards have faced stiff opposition from aircraft makers and commercial airlines. Aircraft emissions were not addressed as part of the landmark global climate agreement agreed to in Paris in December. “Addressing pollution from aircraft is an important element of U.S. efforts to address climate change,” said Janet McCabe, EPA’s acting assistant administrator for air and radiation. McCabe said aircraft are the third largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. transportation ...
