A member of a Virginia state permitting board who last week approved a highly controversial certification for Dominion’s planned Atlantic Coast pipeline has business ties to a company currently collaborating with Dominion on a related gas project, DeSmog has found.
William (Trip) Ferguson joined three other Air Pollution Control Board members to unanimously approve a permit for Dominion’s Buckingham compressor station. The planned station, which will propel the natural gas as it moves through the 600-mile interstate pipeline, will be built in Union Hill, a largely African-American community settled by free blacks and emancipated slaves after the Civil War.

I’m standing in a thick riverside forest underneath a huge willow tree, surrounded by a group of green dragons. It has finally stopped raining, but the vegetation is still wet and glistening. I’m explaining to a young high school student that the green dragon is one of Canada’s plant species at risk, a cousin of the common jack-in-the-pulpit. She is trying desperately to ignore the mosquito perched on her nose, but finally can take it no longer. She smacks the mosquito, and starts laughing.
Peek outside on a snowy afternoon and the world moves in slow motion. Jumbo flakes float to the ground and coat your cracked sidewalks and patchy lawns in a thin blanket of bright white. Winds whisper through the willows as you strap your boots on and bundle up to head outside. Making those first fresh footprints […]

Acting Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief — and now Trump cabinet nominee — Andrew Wheeler heads into Senate confirmation hearings at 10 a.m. EST Wednesday, as the longest government shutdown in U.S. history has left the EPA mostly shuttered.
Wheeler, a former coal, petrochemical, and LNG (liquefied natural gas) lobbyist, has run America’s top environmental agency since ex-EPA chief Scott Pruitt resigned this summer under at least a dozen internal investigations.

Although the partial U.S. government shutdown, now marching into its fourth week, isn’t hurting the oil and gas industry, according to Mike Sommers, the head of the American Petroleum Institute (API) says he wants the shutdown to end so that the Trump administration can get back to actively helping the industry by meeting federal deadlines for rolling back environmental regulations.
Nevertheless, there are signs the Trump administration is still at work on that fossil fuel-friendly agenda in some places, such as the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), despite the longest government shutdown in U.S. history.
How is 2019 treating you so far?

He is the first Canadian to have climbed Mount Everest without oxygen. He’s rowed solo across the North Atlantic, from Canada to France. He’s climbed Canada’s highest mountain, Mount Logan — and the highest peaks in 18 other countries. And as of a couple of weeks ago, Laval St. Germain has another exploration milestone to add to his impressive resume: the Seven Summits.
“During an appearance on the political show CTV Question Period, Singh appeared to be unaware of a news story that made a lot of headlines last week. Singh was asked how he would respond, if elected prime minister, to the recent statement by China’s Canadian ambassador Lu Shaye, that Canada and its Western allies’ calls for the release of two Canadians detained in China is rooted in ‘white supremacy.’
“Sorry, who accused who of white supremacy?” Singh asked his interviewer. He later told the Toronto Star he didn’t hear the initial question. Host Evan Solomon repeated it in full and asked how Singh would have responded if he were prime minister. “I don’t know if there is any evidence of that suggestion,” Singh said, then quickly pivoted to talking about U.S. President Donald Trump.

Caught this the other day.
PepsiCo has partnered with the University of the Pacific campus in Stockton, California to launch mobile vending machines that, at least according to PepsiCo, deliver “healthier” snacks to college students by way of a smartphone app.
Peeking at the launch video one can see that the “healthier” snacks include Pure Leaf Lemon Flavor tea (with its > 10 teaspoons (41g) of added sugar), and an assortment of baked chips (which generally have marginally fewer calories but are otherwise comparable to their fully fried brethren).
Because no doubt it’s tough these days for college students in in California to find junk food. I mean before Snackbots, they actually had to walk to buy some.
I wonder how much money the University of the Pacific is reaping from PepsiCo in return for feeding up their students and in so doing, helping to market sugar water and baked chips as “healthier“?

New analysis reveals that we have much less water in our aquifers than we previously thought — and the oil and gas industry could put that at even greater risk.
We’re living beyond our means when it comes to groundwater. That’s probably not news to everyone, but new research suggests that, deep underground in a number of key aquifers in some parts of the United States, we may have much less water than previously thought.

The announcement that the State of Louisiana had purchased land for a resettlement project spearheaded by the Isle de Jean Charles Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw Tribe (IDJC) reached the Tribe’s executive secretary, Chantel Comardelle, via an emailed press release. The news hit her like a slap in the face.
Despite being involved with the project from the beginning, she received no direct notification. She assumed the State hadn’t told IDJC Tribe Chief Albert Naquin directly either and relayed the news to him. Both took offense for not being notified directly.
The way Comardelle received the news is indicative of why the IDJC Tribe recently told the federal government, which is funding the move of America’s so-called first “climate change refugees,” that the tribal community is turning down the $48 million federal offer and withdrawing from the State’s Isle de Jean Charles resettlement project.
