New evidence suggests #Ukraine played a key role in creating Trump-#RussianCollusion narrative at the behest of @BarackObama officials
theepochtimes.com/joe-biden-obam…
As #Ukraine underwent dramatic changes in 2014, then-VP @JoeBiden played a critical role in the @BarackObama admin’s involvement in the revolution that ousted #Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.

Following the revolution, Biden would use his influence to help force the…
… creation of the troubled National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU). Notably, during the 2016 elections information leaked from NABU on Trump’s campaign manager #PaulManafort that helped to create the false #RussianCollusion narrative.

Leticia: @airallianceHOU has their own purple air monitors for #ITCDisaster. @HarvardU also has monitors. #ITCfire is why we cannot afford rollbacks. Study by @EnvironmentTex show companies like ITC don't incur problems from air quality violations. EPA & TCEQ not protecting us
.@HighTechAztec @SierraClub: Experiencing symptoms of exposure and high levels of distress.

I care because I live here, too. My mom lives in Deer Park. Friends who are pregnant & vulnerable. Concerned about cumulative impact. Scares me

In April, Alberta, Canada, will elect a new provincial government. Many may be unaware that the current @rachelnotley govt has adopted a globally significant #climate plan. Here is what's in it, what it has done, and what is at stake next month. A THREAD #abvote 1/24
First, where did Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan plan come from? (George Soros, perhaps? Foreign-funded radicals?) No. It came from Albertans. A volunteer panel led by @andrew_leach spoke w 1K residents in-person and heard from 25K+ online. 2/24
The panel also engaged with 350+ stakeholders and met w Aboriginal Peoples in three cities, and received hundreds of detailed submissions from NGOs, industry groups and others. 3/24

For the 82nd Month in a row, Australian Oil import coverage stocks are well below the 90 day IEA minimum, despite increasing by 3 days and stable daily imports for December 2018. Australian #energysecurity remains vulnerable #OOTT #energypolicy #oil #auspol
Australian Net Oil Imports have increased by ~12% vs December 2017. Australia remains vulnerable to international oil supply disruptions while stocks remain >40% below the IEA 90 day minimum. #OOTT #energypolicy #energysecurity #oil #auspol #energytwitter
Australian Domestic Refinery Inputs only contribute 16% of Indigenous supply for local consumption. With production having declined consistently over the last 10 years, import dependency remains a strategic concern. #EnergyPolicy #EnergySecurity #OOTT #OIL #auspol

We have just published our Review of Energy Policy: 2018!
Check out the thread below for a summary of all our recommendations.

On #Transport: The target for phasing our conventionally fuelled vehicles is inadequate. The @transportgovuk ‘Road to Zero’ (‘ICE ban 2040’) may neither hit the target nor make the early gains needed for a 1.5°C trajectory. @_chris_brand_ @jillian_anable
On #electricity: policy should build on Electricity Market Reform that has worked well & adapt in the light of technology/cost changes. Change in ‘black start’ incentives & other ancillary services are needed to ensure the system remains resilient @energyukcomms @ngcontrolroom

How Total is integrating #climate into its strategy?
1/6
We are positioned in fast-growing #lowcarbon markets, which means we offer an #energy mix whose carbon intensity is steadily decreasing.
2/6
In support of this change, we have created a tool for measuring the #carbon intensity of the #energy products we make available to our customers. That metric indicates the average of our products’ greenhouse gas emissions.

Russian directive 4 #EU: dismantle, separate UK, the weaken Germany while increasing presence from West 2 East #US directive: dismantle NATO, weaken US relationships around globe & especially with Canada while strategizing 2 move north 2 retake Alaska & northern Canada
Trump has been so enamored w/ the power of Putin he doesn’t realize this trade war with China is exactly what Putin wanted. In 2016 US made deal with China 2B their #1 provider of #NaturalGas & #Oil but now with tariffs & trade war all that surplus will be devoured by tariffs
Did he really think Putin would B ok with the U.S. backdooring him? No! While we’re busy with #CivilUnrest Putin will manipulate the #MidEast & #EU & then when he’s got it all in place & we think they’re our BFF’s they’re going 2 turn on an isolated America 1st & all alone

.@FERC has a lot to be proud of in the 11 months since a quorum was re-established in August 2017.
Among the most significant achievements is the approval of a number of major #natgas #pipeline projects & BILLIONS of cf/d of new capacity. Many of those projects had been waiting for an exceptionally long time.
But there are some areas where we can & should do better — specifically, our review of #LNG export terminal applications. We need more resources!

Six #nuclear reactors closed since 2013. By my count, up to 23 more reactors may retire w/o policy or market conditions improving: 21.6 GW = ~1/5th of US fleet, 4% of US #electricity--and crucially, 12% of emissions-free generation.

So what's killing nuclear power in the U.S.?
In a new @MIT CEEPR paper -- 1 part #energy #economics & 1 part film noir murder mystery! -- I provide the 1st empirical estimates of what's driving down #electricity market prices & killing profitability of 19 #nuclear power plants across @pjminterconnect ceepr.mit.edu/publications/w…
You can read a short policy brief summarizing the paper & key conclusions @MIT CEEPR here: ceepr.mit.edu/files/papers/2…
