News and Opinion

Coverage of pipelines since June 24, 2024.

Referendum set for South Dakota voters on controversial carbon dioxide pipeline law

"...The pipeline is seen as crucial for a potential future aviation fuel market for the Midwest-based ethanol industry, which buys roughly one-third of the nation's corn crop. In opposing the pipeline, some landowners question the forced use of their property and raise the danger of ruptures that could release hazardous CO2 gas. They also are critical of lucrative federal tax credits for carbon capture projects..."

Development Banks Can Catalyze the Clean Energy Transition, Starting in South and Southeast Asia

"...3) Work with Governments to Enable Country-level Energy TransitionsAs in most regions, some countries in South and Southeast Asia lack policies that can support the clean energy transition by giving markets clear signals about the future of renewables. Persistent fossil fuel subsidies create strong disincentives in many countries for energy users to switch to renewables; this is the case with Bangladesh's subsidies for kerosene. Some countries offer no tax rebates for renewable energy projects..."


Canadas new greenwashing ban rattles fossil fuel industry

"...A coalition of environmental and health organizations celebrated the bill, describing it as a potential watershed moment in dealing with the systemic problem of making spurious environmental claims. False green claims, or greenwashing, not only deceive consumers but also contribute to pollution and environmental degradation, with serious implications for human health, said Leah Temper, with the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE), an organization that has been pushing to ban fossil fuel advertising altogether in Canada. In addition, "it skews the competitive landscape, impairs sustainable consumption decisions, harms consumer trust and undermines companies incentives to invest in green innovation," noted Tanya Jemec, a lawyer at Ecojustice..."

"...Each day, nearly 70 million litres of water flow from the water treatment plant through transmission lines to six reservoirs across the city..."


Midwestern carbon dioxide pipeline project gets approval in Iowa, but still has a long way to go

"...Whether you think its smart or silly, the worlds largest airlines want to decarbonize their fuel. Carbon capture and sequestration gets Iowa ethanol into that market, potentially providing a generational boost to Iowas economy,” Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Executive Director Monte Shaw said in a statement..."


Alberta oil and gas sector exceeded flaring limit in 2023, data shows

"...Natural gas is a byproduct that comes to the surface when companies drill oil wells. If the volumes of gas are small, and there are no pipelines nearby to transport the gas, companies often choose for economic reasons to dispose of it through flaring..."
