Constitution gives Ottawa right to impose carbon price on provinces McKenna

first_imgOTTAWA – Ottawa is completely within its rights to impose a carbon tax on any province because protecting the environment falls under federal jurisdiction, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said Thursday.“Let me be very clear,” McKenna said in the foyer outside the House of Commons. “It is well within the federal government’s right to take action to protect the environment.”McKenna’s comments seemed to be aimed directly at Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall, the only premier holding out against any form of carbon pricing, which he says will hurt his province’s recovering economy.Wall reiterated Thursday his plan to take Ottawa to court to keep it from imposing a carbon tax next year.“This federal government white paper is frankly more like a ransom note,” he said in Regina.McKenna released a discussion paper Thursday on the details of a federal carbon price plan which will be imposed on any province that doesn’t have at least a $10 a tonne price on carbon as early as next spring. The exact date will depend on when the legislation, expected this fall, passes.The federal plan mimics the Alberta carbon program, with a direct tax on heating and transportation fuels and a separate levy on large emitters who don’t cut their emissions by a targeted amount.Provinces that have their own system can choose how the revenues are spent. B.C. returns them to people through income tax cuts. Alberta divides its take between direct rebates to individuals, small business tax cuts and investments in green energy and clean technology.Ottawa will decide how the revenues collected by the federal tax are rebated, although McKenna stressed “every penny” will go back to the province where it came from. She is looking at rebates to individuals and businesses which would bypass provincial governments completely.Wall acknowledged his government has thought about whether revenues from a carbon tax could be used to cut other taxes in Saskatchewan, such as the provincial sales tax which his government just hiked by one point this year. But he said the Saskatchewan economy can’t afford a carbon tax and he won’t agree to do it, even if that means Ottawa could control the revenues.“We’d rather not have a carbon tax, so we’ll take our chances in court,” said Wall.Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec already have plans which McKenna’s office deems sufficient to meet Ottawa’s requirements up to 2020. At that point, they all have to raise their carbon tax or cut the caps on emissions in cap-and-trade programs, to keep up.All other provinces but Saskatchewan have indicated they are preparing to introduce a carbon price, although some have indicated it may be better to let Ottawa bear any political fall-out from a tax.The technical paper says every $10 levy per tonne of emissions will add 2.33 cents to a litre of gas and 1.96 cents to each cubic metre of natural gas. By 2022, that would mean a 50-litre tank of gas would cost about $5.82 more. The natural gas heating bill for the average single, detached home would rise by about $264 a year.The goal of a carbon levy is to persuade people to save money by reducing the use of fossil fuels. That could mean using public transit instead of driving, buying a more fuel-efficient car or improving home efficiency with new windows or a better furnace.Ian Bruce, director of science and policy at the David Suzuki Foundation, said there are multiple studies which showed after British Columbia introduced a carbon tax in 2008, people’s fuel consumption fell.B.C.’s emissions did fall in the first few years after the carbon tax was introduced, however they have crept back up in recent years, a fact many experts blame on the fact the carbon tax hasn’t risen since 2012.Wall however pointed to B.C.’s rising emissions as proof carbon taxes don’t work to cut emissions. He said Saskatchewan isn’t against doing its part to help fight climate change, but thinks plans such as eliminating coal-fired electricity plants and investing in clean technology are the answer, not new taxes.-follow @mrabson on Twitter.last_img read more

CBK seeks protection of January 8 revolution

The former President said that her love for the SLFP will never fade and she is committed to strengthen the policies of the party.Kumaratunga said that she worked towards the defeat of Mahinda Rajapaksa at the last Presidential election despite some obstacles she faced and threats to her and her family. Kumaratunga was instrumental in obtaining support for President Maithripala Sirisena at the January 8 Presidential election. Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga urged the public today to protect the silent revolution of January 8 where Mahinda Rajapaksa was defeated at the Presidential election.Issuing a special statement, Kumaratunga said that with Parliamentary elections taking place this month, she had to decide if she wanted to protect her party, the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), or the country and she chose the country. “To protect the party the country must first be rebuilt. So it is then very important for us to protect the January 8 revolution,” he said. She said she had decided to join forces with those who were against the former Government which had only individual interests at heart. (Colombo Gazette) read more

A day in the life of Evan Turner

Homework.It’s the common denominator among all college students, whether they are dedicated biophysics majors or rising athletes.It’s instrumental in the progress of a determined chemistry student. It’s not so critical for a guy like Evan Turner, a star athlete with no doubts about his professional future.In fact, Turner said before this season that the one qualm he had about returning for his junior year was the nightly dose of reading, writing and thinking.Nonetheless, the National Player of the Year candidate remained on campus for a third season.Now, while leading the Buckeyes in nearly every statistical category, Turner might as well slam his textbooks shut.A college education is beneficial to anyone, but not everyone. Turner can Google his name and find NBA Draft experts raving about him as the second or third best prospect on the college basketball landscape. That should tell him enough about how he should order his priorities.The top athlete at a premier athletic institution should focus solely on his or her sport.If athletes earned money in college, it would severely hamper their determination and drive toward reaching the professional plateau. Still, the rampant questioning of the treatment of college athletes has diluted the system.Here’s how Turner’s daily itinerary would look if he illegally received some form of payment while in school:7:44 a.m.: Turner wakes up, stretches out the back he broke in December, then sits on the edge of his bed, waiting for a ball boy to fetch him his toothbrush.8:28 a.m.: The junior arrives at his 8:30 class and grabs a seat in the back row, where he can take a nap without interruption. After all, he has a tutor for learning purposes. Attending class is just making a public appearance. It’s in the contract, er, scholarship.12:03 p.m.: Turner treats his boys to lunch at Applebee’s. He’s the one raking in the dough, so he can help his crew out every so often. Turner chooses his restaurant wisely; he wouldn’t want to raise questions by taking his buddies to a fancy steakhouse. Instead, they’re all “eating good in the neighborhood,” and no one seems to care.2:15 p.m.: The soon-to-be All-American checks in with his tutor just minutes before an exam. He quickly memorizes a sequence of A’s, B’s, C’s and D’s, ignoring six weeks of economics material.2:37 p.m.: Turner finishes his midterm in record time.3:30 p.m.: Basketball practice. Turner arrives early and stays late. Some might contend that that schedule accurately represents the daily routine of a college athlete, with or without pay. But I’d be hard-pressed to believe that Turner follows a schedule that remotely resembles it.At this point in Turner’s career, nothing is guaranteed. Others will speculate on his bright future, but until he crosses that capital “T” on a professional contract, he isn’t assured a penny.That keeps him, and all (OK, most) hyped-up athletes in check, whether it lasts for one collegiate year or four. read more

Greek coalition wins budget vote comfortably waits for loan tranche

first_imgGreece’s government sailed through a vote on the 2013 national budget shortly after midnight on Sunday, with almost all the coalition MPs backing the economic plan after two days of debate. A total of 167 deputies voted in favour of the budget. Former minister Costas Skandalidis, ousted from PASOK earlier in the week for not backing spending cuts and structural reforms, voted in favour of the legislation, giving the government an extra vote. Giorgos Kasapidis, ejected from New Democracy for the same reason on Wednesday, also backed the bill. However, there was a surprise for the coalition when Democratic Left MP Yiannis Panousis was absent for the vote. Two of the party’s deputies who voted against Wednesday’s measures, also opposed the budget. All of the New Democracy and PASOK lawmakers supported the legislation. A total of 128 deputies voted against the budget. Four MPs voted “present”. Only Panousis was absent. In his speech moments before the vote, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras insisted that the coalition was on the right track to keep Greece in the euro. “Within a few days, we are changing all those things that had not been changed in decades,” said Samaras. The prime minister accused SYRIZA of being “full of divisions” and having no plan to exit the crisis. He insisted that the three-party coalition would lead Greece out of the crisis. “Greece will exit the nightmare,” he said. “We will either exit united or we will not exit at all.” Samaras said that the government aims to improve on the deficit and recession figures in the budget. He added that he would make a personal effort to bring more investments to Greece through economic diplomacy. Having lost seven MPs following a tumultuous vote on a new austerity package on Wednesday, PASOK did not suffer any defections on Sunday night. All 26 Socialist MPs voted for the budget. However, earlier in the day the party’s general secretary for communications, Yiannis Datseris, resigned. Datseris had remarked in a radio interview that PASOK was a “bubble of the post-dictatorship era”. He also criticized ex-minister Andreas Loverdos in a newspaper article over the content of the leading Socialist’s book. PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos said that recovery was in sight. “We can reach a primary surplus in the first half of 2013 and see the first small signs of growth in the second half of 2013,” he said. Venizelos also called on Greece’s lenders to stop holding back the country’s loan tranches and to agree on a comprehensive solution to its debt sustainability problem. “The technical solutions to Greek debt problems are straightforward and easy,” he said. SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras accused the government of giving in to the plans of German Chancellor Angela Merkel to make Greece a “debt colony.” “You agreed to everything the lenders demanded but now you accuse them of blackmail, why?” said the opposition leader. He labelled the coalition government “part of yesterday” and said that SYRIZA would come to power following elections in the near future. Tsipras added that there was no point debating the 2013 national budget because none of the targets would be met because of the deepening recession. Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras responded to the SYRIZA leader by saying that his proposals to repeal the latest austerity measures and refuse to repay Greece’s debt. “Where do you live Mr Tsipras? Do you believe this stuff?” said Stournaras, who stressed that not keeping to its bailout program would lead to a euro exit. The finance minister said he was certain Greece would receive its next loan tranche on time. “Nobody can say Greece is not meeting its commitments. We are doing so, and then some,” he told MPs. The 2013 budget forecasts a 4.5-percent contraction of the economy on the back of about 9.5 billion euros in spending cuts and tax hikes next year. It will be Greece’s sixth straight year of recession. The budget sees average unemployment next year at 22.8 percent. The decline in private consumption is seen at 7 percent, compared to a 7.7 percent fall in 2012. If execution goes as planned, the budget will next year have a primary surplus of 748 million euros, or 0.4% of GDP, and an overall deficit of 5.2% of GDP or 9.4 billion euros. The budget foresees debt rising to 346 billion euros, or almost 190 percent of GDP, from 175 percent this year. EU and ECB officials say that means that Athens will not be able to reduce its debt to 120 percent of GDP by 2020, the level the IMF has said is the ceiling for debts to be sustainable in the long term. That has triggered a debate on how to reduce the debt, which include discussions on cutting interest rates on Greece’s official loans, letting the ECB give profits from Greek bonds it holds back to Athens, helping bail out Greek banks with the EU’s EFSF rescue fund, and other measures. In comments published by a German newspaper on Sunday, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said the troika of international lenders to Athens was unlikely to deliver a full report in time for Monday’s euro zone finance ministers meeting. European leaders have been waiting for the report by officials from the three institutions – the IMF, EU and the European Central Bank – before agreeing to extend more loans. “At the moment it does not look as if we will have a finished, complete troika report on Monday, especially given that the Greek parliament is only agreeing the budget on Sunday,» Schaeuble said ahead of the Eurogroup ministers’ talks.

Northwest Pipe CEO outlines prospects

first_imgVancouver-based Northwest Pipe Co. emerged from 2018 with a record-high backlog of project orders and expects plenty of bidding opportunities to continue to boost its revenue in 2019, CEO Scott Montross told stock analysts Thursday in the company’s fourth quarter investor conference call.Montross discussed upcoming projects in Texas, California and North Dakota during the half-hour call, and updated investors on the integration of Ameron Water Transmission Group, which the company acquired last year.The call also touched on the basics of the company’s fourth-quarter 2018 results, which were released on Wednesday and reported sales of 57.5 billion, a 61.5 percent year-over-year increase from the fourth quarter of 2017. But Montross spent the majority of the call offering a detailed evaluation of the company’s position in the welded steel pipe industry and outlining its expectations for 2019.“As of Dec. 31, our backlog including confirmed orders was $252 million — an all-time record — compared to $201 million in the third quarter (of 2018) and $88 million in the fourth quarter of 2017,” he said.The growth of the backlog was propelled by a large number of bidding opportunities in the fourth quarter, he said, including new opportunities created by the merger with Ameron. Northwest Pipe has seen a trend of relatively slow first quarters in the past few years, Montross said, but he expected the current quarter to break that pattern due to the current level of demand in the industry.last_img read more

Mexican Journalists Win Top Prize For Confronting Government Corruption

first_img Share Photo via Wikimedia Commons Earlier this month a group of Mexican reporters received Spanish-speaking media’s highest journalistic honor for an investigation that uncovered uncomfortable truths about Mexico’s university system. Long considered pillars of integrity in a country rife with corruption, investigative reporters revealed that some of those most respected universities were part of an organized money laundering system. About $400 million (U.S.) taxpayer dollars were syphoned into phantom businesses. Now, nearly half that money can’t be accounted for.Miriam Castillo, an investigative reporter with Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity, helped broke the story.Castillo said there have been suspicions about Mexico’s university system since 2002. The nation’s auditor’s office reported a recurrent and systemic problem in 2010, through a series of open records requests, Castillo and her team were able to compare the auditor’s complaints against the state’s budgets.“The system is made of cogs, each with a specific function,” she said. “The systemic aspect of it made it easy for all of the involved to funnel the money.”Another thing that made it easy was that those involved operate with impunity. Often, when there is an investigation, the investigators are part of the system.“When state colleges and universities are audited their impunity is guaranteed,” Castillo said. “There’s never any punishment.”The public has responded with indignation over this case, but the problem is that the Mexican people are inundated with news about corruption cases. Castillo said there were protests but the lack of consequences for the bad actors meant nothing about the system changed.“The way the government deals with these stories is that they ignore them,” she said. “They never address them. They don’t even give the illusion that they are working on a solution.”Even though little has changed as a result of the work Castillo and her team have done she said it is still her responsibility to shed light on these issues.“We fail if we stay quiet in the face of impunity simply because impunity goes unpunished,” she said. “The authority’s job is to bring justice. That’s not my job.”The systemic corruption in Mexico’s government makes democratic change a very slow process. In spite of this, Castillo said many people are invested in changing the system.“Perhaps, you don’t see it yet but I believe we are awakening the consciousness of people,” she said. “We may see the system changing with the upcoming presidential elections in Mexico.”Written by Jeremy Steen.last_img read more

Convicted Cop Attacks Character of Slain Officer

first_imgBy Stephen Janis, Special to the AFROWhen Det. Sean Suiter was shot in the head with his own gun in a West Baltimore alley in November 2017, then Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis acted aggressively.Det. Sean Suiter, an 18-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department, was shot in the head while investigating a murder in West Baltimore, Nov. 15. He died from his injuries about 24 hours after the shooting. (Courtesy photo)He locked down the Harlem Park neighborhood where the shooting occurred, forcing residents to show identification to pass through checkpoints.  In a series of press conferences Davis described the alleged shooter, a lone black male wearing a jacket with a white stripe as, “a heartless, ruthless, soulless, killer.”  Additionally, Mayor Catherine Pugh ordered the lighting of the top of city hall blue, to call attention to the killing and remind the city Suiter had been slain allegedly by someone in their midst.But, the ongoing criminal trial inside the Federal District courthouse against two members of the now notorious Gun Trace Task Force (GTTF), accused of dealing drugs, robbing residents and stealing overtime, is providing a reckoning of sorts rarely seen in Baltimore, casting an unfavorable light on the actions of city leaders in the wake of Suiter’s death.During cross examination of several of the officers who have pled guilty to various crimes new allegations have emerged casting doubt on the narrative that Suiter was the victim of a lone neighborhood gunman.  Their testimony also called into question the behavior of Davis and other city leaders’ decision to cast an accusatory net across a city that had suffered for years under the Baltimore Police Department (BPD), which the Department of Justice in 2016 found engaged regularly in unconstitutional policing targeted primarily at African Americans.In riveting testimony earlier this week according to WBAL TV, former GTTF Momodu Gondo told defense attorneys that he and Suiter together robbed residents long before he joined the elite unit.  After Gondo admitted to stealing money starting in 2008, the attorney asked if the past thefts included Suiter.Former GTTF Momodu Gondo.“Yes,” Gondo replied.Suiter, whose death was ruled a homicide, was set to testify in front of a federal grand jury regarding a 2010 car chase that led to an accident and the death of the father of a Baltimore police officer.  The driver, Umar Burley, fled when Suiter and Sgt. Wayne Jenkins, a GTTF supervisor who has also pled guilty to a variety of crimes, tried to block his car after they spotted him with cash.   Jenkins then ordered a yet to be named Sgt. to plant drugs in the car after the accident.Charges of drug possession against Burley have since been dropped,But Gondo’s accusation against Suiter is not the only testimony that has impugned the reputation of an already sullied department, and shed light on accusations lobbed at residents by the department that were either overblown or untrue.Earlier this week former bail bondsman Donald C. Stepp, testified that in 2015 during the uprising after the death of Freddie Gray, Jenkins brought him garbage bags full of pharmaceutical drugs looted from businesses across the city.  The Baltimore County resident told the jury he sold the drugs for Jenkins and shared the proceeds with him, according to The Real News Network.But, in 2015 Commissioner Anthony Batts blamed the massive theft of prescription drugs and their subsequent distribution on the streets by city residents as the impetus behind a wave of violence after the death of Gray.“That’s enough narcotics on the streets of Baltimore to keep it intoxicated for a year,” Batts told CNN during an interview in 2015. “That number of drugs has thrown off the balance on the streets of Baltimore.”Former members of the GTTF have also cast doubts on current BPD commanders.Among them, Deputy Commissioner Dean Palmere, who GTTF member Jemell Rayam claims coached him on how to document his controversial shooting in 2009 of Sean Cannady.  The {Baltimore Sun} reported that Det.  Rayam testified Palmere guided him on how to report the incident when he shot Cannady in the head as he was driving out of a Northwest Baltimore alley, to minimize suspicion.  Palmere has denied the claims and said he plans to retire.In an email, BPD spokesman T.J Smith revealed a new corruption unit that has been tasked with investigating the ongoing allegations which emerged from the trial.“The Baltimore Police Department is monitoring the testimony.” Smith wrote. “We are working diligently to investigate and hold those who tarnished the badge and violated public trust accountable for their actions.”“Commissioner-Designate Darryl De Sousa has formed a Corruption Investigation Unit that will be led by a Lieutenant Colonel. The unit will specifically focus on the actions of the Gun Trace Task Force.”last_img read more

Smelling highcalorie food can directly satisfy belly

first_imgDoes a whiff of pizzas, burgers or sandwiches entice you, but you refrain from eating them due to the high-calories it contains? Take heart, smelling these for longer than two minutes will make you feel satiated, suggest researchers, including one of an Indian-origin. The study showed that ambient food scent can directly satisfy the belly because the brain does not necessarily differentiate the source of sensory pleasure. “Ambient scent can be a powerful tool to resist cravings for indulgent foods. In fact, subtle sensory stimuli like scents can be more effective in influencing children’s and adults’ food choices than restrictive policies,” said lead author Dipayan Biswas, Professor at the University of South Florida in the US. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe researchers discovered a direct connection between the length of exposure time and whether or not one will indulge. They also conducted a series of tests using a nebuliser that separately gave off the scent of healthy and unhealthy food items (cookies versus strawberries, pizza versus apples). The findings, published in the Journal of Marketing Research, showed that participants exposed to the smell of cookies for less than 30 seconds were more likely to want a cookie. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveHowever, those exposed for longer than two minutes did not find that cookie desirable and picked strawberries instead. The results were the same in case of the scent of pizza and apples. Since non-indulgent foods do not give off much of an ambient scent, they are typically not connected with reward, therefore they have little influence on what we order, the study noted. High caloric foods are high in fats and sugars and extraordinary intake of these types of foods increase your risk factors for obesity Type-2 diabetes, heart disease as well as cancers.last_img read more

but that has not prevented Bilawal Bhutto Zardari from seeking the job they both held: prime minister of Pakistan Oxford-educated and single 29-year-old Bhutto Zardari is campaigning himself for the first time traversing the sprawling plains of his native Sindh province to try to revive the fortunes of his struggling left-of-centre Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) ahead of a 25 July general election He was still in university when his mother two-time prime minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in 2007 as she campaigned to restore democracy after military rule Her father Zulfikar Ali Bhutto also a prime minister was hanged after being deposed in a military coup “I didn’t choose this life I didn’t actively go out and pursue it My mother always used to say that she didn’t choose this life it chose her In the same way I feel like it applies to me” Bhutto Zardari told Reuters as he stood on the roof of his open-top 20-foot-high bullet-proof bus Asked if he is ever afraid while campaigning he answered briefly: “No” He then pivoted to discussing a “climate of fear” in the lead-up to the elections that some activists blame on Pakistan’s powerful military Bilawal Bhutto Zardari waves to supporters after submitting nomination papers for the 2018 general elections in Karachi Reuters In one of the first interviews since being named the PPP’s prime ministerial candidate he also criticised fellow Oxford graduate and opposition leader Imran Khan — a potential coalition partner Flanked by supporters on either side of the single-lane highway Bhutto Zardari was showered with rose petals as he waved to thousands of people who waited to catch a glimpse of the youngest of the political dynasty that many call the Pakistani equivalent of the Kennedys Despite the feel-good feeling in the crowds election time is always tense in Pakistan which has been ruled by the military for almost half of the 70 years since independence The outgoing Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) government has accused the military and courts of playing a role in the ouster of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif last year and helping Imran Khan’s PTI political party Khan a former cricket captain of Pakistan denies the accusation and calls the PMLN a graft-ridden “mafia” And overshadowing all this is the fear that the election is being engineered by the “establishment” a euphemism for Pakistan’s much-feared military and intelligence top brass along with some senior civil servants and judges The military has repeatedly denied that it interferes in modern-day politics “I think that there is absolutely a history in Pakistan of an over-active role for our establishment and the Pakistan Peoples Party firmly believes that should not be the case” Bhutto Zardari said when asked about the military’s involvement in politics “There is absolutely a feeling that certain candidates are feeling pressurised are feeling certain political parties are being supported in ways that they shouldn’t be” he said “I believe everyone should believe in the people of Pakistan trust the people of Pakistan to make their own choices” Power broker Bhutto Zardari’s convoy started in the town of Thatta the medieval capital of Sindh and was later headed north to the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces hoping to revive the vote base it lost in the 2013 polls when it finished second A Gallup nationwide poll in March put his party’s popularity at 17 percent with Khan’s PTI at 24 percent and Sharif’s PMLN at 36 percent One of the party’s challenges is overcoming the image of Bhutto Zardari’s father former president Asif Ali Zardari Some analysts and party insiders say numerous corruption allegations against Zardari could cost the party at the polls where it will contrast with Imran Khan’s relentless anti-graft message File image of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari with father former Pakistan president Asif Ali Zardari Reuters Zardari spent 11 years in jail on charges of corruption and murder but was never convicted He has always maintained his innocence and remains a party leader and adviser to his son Although Bhutto Zardari is campaigning to become prime minister many political analysts believe the PPP may at best become a power broker if no party wins a clear majority as seems likely He has indicated he would be willing to join a possible coalition government although he did not say whether he would prefer the PMLN or Khan’s PTI He said Khan’s socially conservative PTI was “peddling the politics of hate of polarisation the politics of divisiveness” “It may win Imran Khan an election but it has disastrous consequences for the youth of Pakistan and for Pakistan’s society” Bhutto Zardari said He has been quoted in local media as calling the PMLN “cruel rulers” and saying that it had “decided to eliminate the poor and not poverty” Bhutto Zardari said his ambitions were not just about becoming prime minister but bringing back the policies that were dear to his mother On the campaign trail he frequently mentions her in his speeches “We have to keep BB’s promise We have to save Pakistan” he says in Urdu the national language using the initials by which his mother was commonly known “There is no greater sense of fulfilment in a son’s life than to feel like he is continuing with his mother’s incomplete missions” he said Geologists have for the first time linked earthquakes deep under Ohio’s Appalachian Mountains to hydraulic fracturing leading the state to issue strict permit conditions Friday on the gas extraction process Researchers found that five small tremors last month near Youngstown Ohio were likely the result of the injection of sand and water that occurs during the hydraulic fracturing — or “fracking” — process the Associated Press reports Fracking involves injecting rocks with pressurized water or other liquids in an effort to extract gas which can be turned into usable fuel Because the geology of each shale formation is different the discovery in Ohio may not apply everywhere across the country However other instances of fracking causing small earthquakes have been recorded elsewhere including in Oklahoma England and British Columbia Canada Ohio’s new permit conditions require natural gas companies to install sensitive seismic-monitoring equipment at drilling sites near known faults or seismic activity If an earth tremor of greater than 10 magnitude is linked to fracking operations will be halted “While we can never be 100 percent sure that drilling activities are connected to a seismic event caution dictates that we take these new steps to protect human health safety and the environment” James Zehringer director of Ohio’s natural resources department said [AP] MORE: The Fuss Over Fracking: The Dilemma of a New Gas Boom Contact us at editors@timecomThe Supreme Court on Monday agreed to a second hearing of a major affirmative action case next term about a public university that uses race as a factor in its
