  • NCGA testifies on EPA’s RFS

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest This week Michigan farmer Russell Braun provided testimony on behalf of National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) during an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hearing on the agency’s proposed biofuel targets for 2019.Braun encouraged EPA to maintain a strong, equitable Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and stressed the need to follow Congressional intent and level the playing field for America’s farmers by using the annual volume rule to repair the damage from extensive refinery exemptions.“With corn prices low, EPA’s decisions have a greater impact on my livelihood and other farmers’ as well.  We believe EPA should use the Renewable Fuel Standard volume rule to remedy the harm caused by the extensive retroactive exemptions given to refineries over the past year and ensure future exemptions are accounted for,” he said. “These refinery exemptions decrease ethanol blending and reduce demand and profits for my corn crop. Every gallon of renewable fuel blending waived by EPA reduces the consumer benefits of the RFS.”EPA’s proposal supports some growth in the RFS volumes and continues to propose an implied 15-billion-gallon volume for conventional ethanol. However, the proposed rule allows for retroactive refinery exemptions, without reallocating those waived gallons, undercutting the volume targets and rendering the proposed blending levels meaningless. In the past year, EPA has retroactively waived 2.25 billion ethanol equivalent-gallons from the 2016 and 2017 volumes through 48 refinery exemptions, many of which went to refineries owned by large, profitable companies.last_img read more

  • Kiwi Stars Want To Get Free With Greenpeace

    first_imgA star-studded array of New Zealanders has joined forces to criticise the government in a new campaign to be launched this (Wednesday) evening.Hollywood actors Sam Neill and Lucy Lawless, award-winning musicians the Topp Twins, Tiki Taane and Warren Maxwell have teamed up with acclaimed writer Albert Wendt, academic Dr Ranginui Walker, leading businessman Phillip Mills, entrepreneur Nick Gerritsen, former Acting Judge of the Supreme Court Sir Ted Thomas and many others to condemn the government’s plans for deep sea oil drilling and attempts to crack down on peaceful protests.

Uniting under the slogan Get Free, they have created a new three-minute ‘call to action’ addressed to the nation, which can be seen at www.getfree.org.nz. In it, they call for New Zealanders to stand together in defence of the country’s oceans, the New Zealand way of life, the right to protest and against the government’s plans to drill for deep sea oil.

Backing clean energy instead would, say the group, be a boost for New Zealand’s environment and economy. Almost 30,000 jobs could be created in areas such as the geothermal and bioenergy industries, revealed a report, released earlier this year and based on scientific modelling carried out by experts in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The analysis shows that the geothermal industry alone could be worth over NZ$4billion to the economy every year.And a growing bioenergy sector could see New Zealand becoming increasingly less reliant on foreign oil imports, saving the country over NZ$7billion each year by 2035.

The call comes in the wake of the National-led government’s controversial crackdown on protest at sea and as New Zealand’s reputation for being clean and green faces increasing international scrutiny. In recent days, Texan oil company Anadarko has announced plans to drill in New Zealand waters in the coming months.

Bunny McDiarmid, head of Greenpeace, who co-ordinated Get Free, said: “The Get Free message is loud and clear that if we don’t stand up now, we stand to lose things of great value to us – our democratic rights and our unpolluted waters.”

Sir Ted Thomas said: “The new law making it illegal to protest at sea is shameful. We have a long history of defending our land and sea and fighting for our freedoms. In many ways protest has provided the strong foundations on which we have built New Zealand. If there ever was a time to protect our country, now is that time.”

Leading New Zealand businessman and founder of the Pure Advantage group Phillip Mills said: “From a business perspective, failure to deal with climate change will undo all of our hard work. Conversely, the greatest future opportunities lie in dealing with this problem. The intelligent path for New Zealand is clean energy innovation, not the blind pursuit of more oil.”

Entrepreneur Nick Gerritsen said: “The evolution of the green economy is a natural fit for NZ. It’s what we do. It’s what the world thinks and expects of us. It’s common sense because it’s where our competitive advantage rests.”

Others participating in Get Free include Lady Blake and Peter Williams QC, oncologist Dr George Laking, Te Whanau ā Apanui kaumātua Rikirangi Gage and lawyer Dayle Takitimu, surfing stars Mischa Davis and Daniel Kereopa, actors Robyn Malcolm and Lucy Lawless and Maria Tyrrell, the daughter of RNZN Commander Alan Tyrrell who was the Commanding Officer of the HMNZS Otago at the Moruroa Protests.

The government’s new law banning aspects of peaceful protesting at sea was heavily criticised by lawyers and politicians when it was introduced. Over 45,000 people signed a statement against the new measures.last_img read more

  • Seniors hope to get final kicks with win over Michigan in finale

    It was four years ago when Joe Moore, Andrew Magill and Doug Verhoff came to Ohio State to play soccer.Now, the three seniors will be playing their last regular-season home game on Saturday. “The time’s gone really fast. … It’s sad but at the same time it’s exciting,” Moore said. “We got a chance this weekend to do something special, to end our senior year on a special note.”“It seems like yesterday we were coming here for preseason not knowing what to expect,” Magill said.The three seniors have had ups and downs the last four years. They have been to the NCAA tournament the last two seasons, and they’re hoping to get there this season. They were also part of the team that went to the NCAA College Cup in 2007.All three seniors have enjoyed their time at OSU and feel like they’ve achieved many goals, both individually and as a team. They would like nothing more than to go out on senior day and get a win against rival Michigan. “Ohio State fans hate Michigan,” Moore said. “So when you get a chance to not only beat them, but beat them in one of the biggest games of your career, it makes it even more special.” Not only is this a rivalry game, it is also an important game for the Buckeyes attempt to win the Big Ten.If Penn State loses or ties Friday night, a Buckeye win Saturday will put them on top of the Big Ten.If they win the Big Ten they receive an automatic bid. The seniors will take the field for their last regular season game 6 p.m. Saturday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.Moore expects the game to be more physical than usual, as both teams will be fired up and ready to go, especially since it is a rivalry game. “You’re going to see a lot of physical play, there going to be some hits and probably a few more yellow cards,” Moore said, “but all in all it will be a good game.For both teams, it’s the last regular season game of the year, and for OSU it’s a chance to send their seniors off with a win. “We’re going to miss all three of them,” coach John Bluem said. “They’ve been great players in our program.” read more
