Buckle in for an #oilandgas & #fracking thread re: the importance of @CDPHE’s recent #publichealth study
@CDPHE 1. Last week @CDPHE -- Colorado’s health agency -- confirmed what science, including @ColoradoSPH, has been telling us for years: living near #oilandgas production threatens #publichealth. colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/… #fracking
@CDPHE @ColoradoSPH 2. @CDPHE’s study is a big deal b/c it’s the 1st time we know of that a regulator of a major #oilandgas producing state acknowledged #publichealth threats associated with living near #oilandgas & #fracking.

Dear .@Cathmckenna yesterday I allowed my rage to take over when I saw both you & .@JustinTrudeau tweeting about #GretaThunberg & #climatestrikecanada #ClimateStrike.

Your work & this moment in history deserves more compassionate & thoughtful response, so here it is: THREAD
@cathmckenna @JustinTrudeau I admire your strength & commitment and as a woman who is attacked & threatened for my work I appreciate what you have been going through.

As a Canadian I also appreciate the coal phase out, the price on pollution & other elements of your climate platform but.../2

@cathmckenna @JustinTrudeau I knocked on doors in the last elxn to help this govt get elected b/c I was so horrified by the lost decade of climate inaction in Canada under the Harper govt & I believed you when you promised prorep, climate test for pipelines, stronger targets science based policy & UNDRIP/3

#oilandgas flimflam men are lying! Journalists should not repeat the lies!

They want the public to believe that natural gas is a solution for #climatechange.

IT IS THE PROBLEM.

U.S. GHG emissions are rising not decreasing as flimflammers claim. 1/4

Natural gas is #methane or CH4 and it's a super pollutant that is over 86 X more potent at warming the planet than CO2. But, it doesn't stay in the atmosphere for very long and that's where the HOPE for STOPPING #climatechange is. 2/4
Because #methane is short-lived, if we STOP #fracking and #KeepItInTheGround our planet will have an immediate response and the rapid warming will slow giving us time to solve CO2 which stays in the atmosphere for a very long time. 3/4

1/ @DOIDepSec #Bernhardt is up for nomination as @Interior Secretary today. The lobbyist and lawyer is seen as a skilled bureaucrat who can avoid the limelight while pursuing @DonaldJTrump’s “energy dominance” agenda on #publiclands Thread 👇
@DOIDepSec @Interior @DonaldJTrump 2/ Two weeks ago, @DOIDepSec announced significant rollbacks of the 2015 sage grouse conservation policies. Some Western governors did their best to soften the #publiclands regulation cuts. hcne.ws/2FzUD5o
@DOIDepSec @Interior @DonaldJTrump 3/ Oil industry execs gloated about “unprecedented access” to staff @Interior. Bernhardt is a former lobbyist for #oilandgas interests, coal-fired power plants and fracking. Enviros call him a “walking conflict of interest.” From our partner @reveal

Sobre el evento del día de la #ExpropiaciónPetrolera y el anuncio de la #refinería en #DosBocas: inició con la participación de @rocionahle y el anuncio de la licitación por invitación restringida a 4 empresas:
* Bechtel - Techint
* Worley Parsons - Jacobs
* KBR
* Technip
De éstas 4, sin duda el rival a vencer es Bechtel. Y la contienda a priori Seguro habrá de darse entre Bechtel y KBR.

Sin dejar de lado que, dado su perfil que les da más fortalezas en ingeniería; el consorcio Worley Parsons - Jacobs al seguramente integrar en ejecución...
a un EPC constructor mexicano, eso le sume puntos.
Las 4 empresas, al margen de cualquier otro tema tienen capacidad suficiente para conceptualizar y ejecutar un proyecto como éste.

El segundo tema relevante de la participación de @rocionahle fue...

#Scheer is still against Trudeau's dangerous #carbontax. He's been campaigning HARD on this.

Over a 1 1/2 yr and Scheer never committed to any fixed targets the LIBS incl Trudeau, Butts & McKenna have complained loudly about NO Commitment from Scheer
