first_imgStudy finds green investments would be best approach to spur global economic revival FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Massive programmes of green public investment would be the most cost-effective way both to revive virus-hit economies and strike a decisive blow against climate change, top U.S. and British economists said in a study published on Tuesday.With co-authors including Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz from Columbia University and prominent British climate expert Lord Nicholas Stern, the findings are likely to fuel calls for “green recoveries” gathering momentum around the world.“The COVID-19 crisis could mark a turning point in progress on climate change,” the authors wrote, adding that much would depend on policy choices made in the next six months.With major economies drawing up enormous economic packages to cushion the shock of the coronavirus pandemic, many investors, politicians and businesses see a unique opportunity to drive a shift to a low-carbon future. While think-tanks and investor groups have also been making the case for tailoring recoveries to accelerate a transition away from fossil fuels, the study aimed to assess such proposals in the light of new data.The authors examined more than 700 economic stimulus policies launched during or since the 2008 financial crisis, and surveyed 231 experts from 53 countries, including senior officials from finance ministries and central banks. The results suggested that green projects such as boosting renewable energy or energy efficiency create more jobs, deliver higher short-term returns and lead to increased long-term cost savings relative to traditional stimulus measures.“The COVID-19-initiated emissions reduction could be short-lived,” said Cameron Hepburn, lead author and director of the Smith School of Enterprise and Environment at the University of Oxford. “But this report shows we can choose to build back better, keeping many of the recent improvements we’ve seen in cleaner air, returning nature and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.”[Matthew Green]More: Green recovery can revive virus-hit economies and tackle climate change, study sayslast_img read more

They feature solar panels that provide power during business hours and geothermal heat pumps that circulate through underground systems with relatively constant temperatures to provide more efficient heating and cooling.“Geothermal has been around for decades, but has not been used a lot until recently,” says Earl Brendle, Suncoast CU’s VP/facilities. “It offers large savings over traditional HVAC systems and is the most efficient type of HVAC that we have been able to find for use in Florida.” continue reading »last_img read more

first_imgTopics : The governor of Texas has issued a disaster declaration after the death of six-year-old boy infected with a brain-eating amoeba that was later found in his community’s water supply.The child died on Sept. 8 following an infection caused by the amoeba Naegleria fowleri, a microscopic organism that breeds in the warm, fresh water of lakes and rivers and of poorly maintained swimming pools, US media reports said. The amoeba enters the body through the nasal membranes and penetrates to the brain, causing powerful migraine, hyperthermia, stiff neck and vomiting, then dizziness, extreme fatigue, confusion and hallucinations. That advice has since been lifted but authorities are urging residents to boil water before using it.Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a disaster declaration on Sunday for Brazoria County, which includes Lake Jackson. The declaration allows authorities to use extra state resources due to an emergency.Between 1983 and 2010, Texan health authorities have attributed 28 deaths to the amoeba Naegleria fowleri.center_img Testing revealed traces of the amoeba in the tap of the garden hose at the boy’s house, a spokesman for the town of Lake Jackson said, quoted by local media. Traces were also found in a fountain in the town center and in a fire hydrant in a town just one hour away from the major city of Houston, said Modesto Mundo, a city official.Grandparents of Josiah McIntyre, the deceased child, told the Houston Chronicle that he might have been exposed to contaminated water while he was playing in a splash park downtown, shortly before he fell ill. The splash park has since been closed and several towns in Brazoria county, where Lake Jackson is located, advised residents to avoid using tap water for drinking, bathing or cooking. last_img read more

first_img Share Sharing is caring! Share Photo Credit: FacebookKeron Pinard Byrne has won his suit against journalist Lennox Linton, Island Communications Corporation Limited and Raglan Riviere. In his judgement, Justice Brian Cottle concluded that,“The defendants, especially the first defendant, remain unapologetic. He continues to insist that his statements were based on facts, revealed by his very “thorough” investigation, although at the trial no evidence was led to establish the truth of those statements.” Justice Cottle explained further that, “His demeanour in the witness box was more consistent with personal animosity towards the claimant rather than an unbiased search for truth. The overall tone of the offending publications also reeked of rancour rather than even hatred reporting.”“The court also cannot be blind to a growing disturbing tendancy of the part of some local media practitioners to make reckless and very unfortunate statements without any factual foundation. In societies such as ours there is a tendancy to conlcude that statements made in the media are to be believed. The mass media is largely trusted and consequently weilds much influence. With such great power should also come commensurate responsiblility.”“When I take into account awards in other recent defamation matters before these courts the award to the claimant is as follows. The fisrt and second defendants will pay damages to the claimant in the sum of $50,000.00 each. The award against the third defendant is in the amount of $10,000.00. The first and second defendatns will pay prescribed costs in the sum of $14,000.00, each while the third defendant will pay costs of $3,333.33.”Judgment_Lennox_linton_et_alDominica Vibes News 60 Views   one commentcenter_img LocalNews Lennox Linton to pay $64,000.00 to Keiron Pinard-Byrne by: – March 23, 2011 Share Tweetlast_img read more

first_img Loading… But Everton just wouldn’t lie down, and Richarlison was able to bundle the ball home on the stroke of half-time, although Arteta was unhappy with the Brazilian’s boot being high as he challenged Bernd Leno. Nicolas Pepe’s cross was headed in by Aubameyang straight after the restart, with Ancelotti slumping into his seat as his side got off to the nightmare start in the second half. And while his side huffed and puffed, they just could not find another equaliser as the second period wore on. They came closest to breaking through when Calvert-Lewin’s stoppage-time header flew agonisingly wide, but the Gunners just about held on for the three points.

The wily Italian also turned to compatriot Moise Kean in the closing stages, but it was Arsenal who held firm to seal the points FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The win takes the Gunners up to ninth in the Premier League table – now just three points behind rivals Tottenham after going ten matches unbeaten in all competitions. It was opponents Everton that had gotten the game off to a flyer, however, as England hopeful Dominic Calvert-Lewin acrobatically fired Carlo Ancelotti’s men into the lead in the opening minute of the match. Some eyebrows were raised when Mikel Arteta again selected youngster Eddie Nketiah over the more experienced Alexandre Lacazette. But the teen striker paid back his manager’s faith in the 27th minute when his smart first-time finish put Arsenal back on level terms. And the Gunners soon found themselves ahead when skipper Aubameyang confidently slotted past Toffees ‘keeper Jordan Pickford just six minutes later.Advertisement Promoted Content40 Child Actors Who Turned Into Gorgeous AdultsWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes7 Reasons It’s Better To Be A VeganCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks10 Phones That Can Easily Fit In The Smallest Pocket6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually True10 Phones That Can Work For Weeks Without RechargingBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s header a minute into the second half clinched a 3-2 victory for Arsenal over Everton in a frenetic Sunday afternoon tussle at the Emirates.last_img read more
