Biden administration proposes offshore wind energy sale near NY, NJ
  + stars: | 2021-06-11 | by ( ) + 0.98   time to read: +2 min
REUTERS/ Kevin Lamarque/FilesThe Biden administration on Friday said it was seeking a possible buyer for a wind lease in the shallow waters between Long Island and New Jersey as part of its ongoing efforts to address climate change in part through cleaner energy. In a statement, the U.S. Department of the Interior said the proposed sale for off shore wind development on the Outer Continental shelf in the New York Bight has "the potential to unlock over 7 gigawatts of offshore wind energy, powering more than 2.6 million homes and supporting thousands of new jobs." The move is the administration's latest push into cleaner energy technologies as it seeks to double offshore wind capacity by 2030 and decarbonize the power sector by 2035. It has the first commercial scale offshore wind farm, the 800-megawatt Vineyard Wind project, a joint venture between Avangrid Inc (AGR.N), a unit of Spain's Iberdrola (IBE.MC) off the coast of Massachusetts. It is also exploring wind energy potential in the Gulf of Mexico read more and California, and is reviewing projects in another area of New Jersey as well as Rhode Island.

Graeme Jennings/Pool via REUTERSThe Biden administration on Tuesday said it will explore the potential of offshore wind energy development in the Gulf of Mexico, part of its goal to supercharge growth in clean energy over the next decade. While the Gulf of Mexico is a major hub for offshore oil and gas production, it has had little renewable energy development. President Joe Biden has made the expansion of clean energy, especially offshore wind, a cornerstone of his fight against climate change. Several Louisiana companies involved in offshore drilling were tapped to help build the nation's first offshore wind farm off the coast of Rhode Island. Edwards' request to BOEM came after the National Renewable Energy Laboratory found that the Gulf's shallow waters and close proximity to oil and gas infrastructure would support offshore wind development.

The internet is a fossil machine. It preserves our thoughts, our political positions, our jokes, our photos, our triumphs and our mistakes in silicon amber, just waiting to be dug up. And that has led to a kind of modern sport: Find an outrageous piece of a person’s past that can be weaponized, put it on display for all to see and hope for the worst. The most surprising thing, though, is that this is still happening. ◆ ◆ ◆Written and narrated by Elizabeth Williamson

Federal agencies are working to reverse Trump-era rollbacks on the Endangered Species Act. The Biden administration is set to reverse Trump-era rollbacks on endangered species protections "in the coming months," federal agencies announced Friday. In 2018, then-Interior Department Secretary Ryan Zinke announced a set of changes to the Endangered Species Act, undermining the protections of the act and putting several threatened species at risk of extinction. Interior Secretary Deb Haaland had previously said rescinding the Trump-era rollbacks on the ESA was at the top of her priorities as head of the agency. The move to reverse the Trump-era regulations brought backlash from Republicans, including Rep. Bruce Westerman, the top GOP lawmaker on the House Natural Resources Committee.

Democrat Stansbury easily wins New Mexico congressional race
  + stars: | 2021-06-02 | by ( Reuters Staff | ) + 0.62   time to read: +2 min
Stansbury, currently a state representative, shunted aside a law-and-order challenge from Republican Mark Moores, a state senator. “Everything is on the line in this election,” Stansbury said on the campaign trail last week. Moores, 51, a state senator, sought to paint Stansbury as a radical who would defund the police - a tactic some Democrats think helped Republicans in last year’s congressional elections. Stansbury, 42, had expressed support for a proposal championed by racial justice activists to redirect law enforcement funds to social services. Stansbury raised over $1.3 million for the congressional race, more than twice Moores’ total.

Democratic state Rep. Melanie Stansbury won the New Mexico special congressional election Tuesday, beating back Republican challenger Mark Moores to fill the seat of Deb Haaland, President Joe Biden's interior secretary. The race to represent New Mexico's 1st Congressional District, which includes Albuquerque, was called by The Associated Press after polls closed at 9 p.m. Her victory shores up the Democrats' narrow 219-211 majority in Congress ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. The district, which Biden won by 23 points and Haaland won by 16 points last year, was seen as a potential pickup for Republicans. More than 54,000 registered Democrats voted early, compared to about 28,000 Republicans, according to the Albuquerque Journal.

The Biden administration suspended those leases Tuesday so it can asses the legality and impact. Some 11 billion barrels of oil are thought to lie below the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. President Joe Biden's administration has suspended Arctic drilling regulations imposed by President Donald Trump in an effort to protect the Alaskan tundra. A sign against drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge seen at the US Capitol in Washington, DC, December 11, 2018. On January 20, Biden signed an executive order prohibiting new leases from being dispensed in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The remote, 19.6 million-acre refuge is home to polar bears, caribou, snowy owls and other wildlife, including migrating birds from six continents. Biden has opposed drilling in the region, and environmental groups have been pushing for permanent protections, which Biden called for during the presidential campaign. The administration's action to suspend the leases comes after officials disappointed environmental groups last week by defending a Trump administration decision to approve a major oil project on Alaska’s North Slope. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., a longtime opponent of drilling in the refuge, accused the Trump administration of trying to “shortcut environmental laws.'' The effort “fell apart when exposed to the facts that federal scientists say Arctic Refuge drilling cannot be done safely and oil companies don’t want to drill there,” Cantwell said.

WASHINGTON — Voters casting ballots Tuesday in the House special election in New Mexico will decide the size of the Democratic majority — and provide a rare glimpse into the political landscape in the era of President Joe Biden. But turnout levels of Democrats and Republicans, as well as voting patterns of Latinos, will contain lessons about the political environment. "Democrats aren’t taking any votes for granted and are committed to ensuring New Mexicans make their voices heard in this important election," said Adrian Eng-Gastelum, a spokesman for the House Democratic campaign arm. A Democratic win would boost the House majority to a nine-person majority, giving Speaker Nancy Pelosi five — rather than four — votes to spare in order to pass a bill without GOP support. House special elections tend to be low-turnout affairs dominated by the most engaged voters, and the margin will tell who’s fired up and who isn’t.

WASHINGTON—Democratic state Rep. Melanie Stansbury won a closely watched U.S. House special election in New Mexico on Tuesday night, according to the Associated Press, keeping the seat under Democratic control and expanding the party’s narrow majority. Ms. Stansbury defeated GOP state Sen. Mark Moores to replace former Democratic Rep. Deb Haaland in the Albuquerque-based district. Mr. Moores, a former University of New Mexico football player, owns a healthcare business with his wife. The Democrats’ victory Tuesday night gives House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) slightly more room to maneuver in any legislative battles. Once Ms. Stansbury is sworn in, Democrats will be able to lose four votes from their own ranks on legislation opposed by all Republicans.

Biden suspends oil leases in Alaska’s Arctic refuge

The Biden administration on Tuesday suspended oil and gas leases in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, reversing a drilling program approved by the Trump administration and reviving a political fight over a remote region that is home to polar bears and other wildlife — and a rich reserve of oil. The Interior Department order follows a temporary moratorium on oil and gas lease activities imposed by President Joe Biden on his first day in office. Biden has opposed drilling in the region, and environmental groups have been pushing for permanent protections, which Biden called for during the presidential campaign. The administration's action to suspend the leases comes after officials disappointed environmental groups last week by defending a Trump administration decision to approve a major oil project on Alaska's North Slope. She thanked Biden and Interior Secretary Deb Haaland "for hearing our voices and standing up for our human rights and identity.″

(Reuters) - Environmental groups have condemned the Biden administration’s defense of a proposed ConocoPhillips oil development in Alaska, a drilling project approved under former President Donald Trump. However, the administration’s backing of the Alaska oil drilling project on Wednesday brought scathing criticism from environmental groups. In February, an appeals court blocked construction of ConocoPhillips’ $2 billion-plus Willow crude oil project in Alaska. Another environment group, Earthjustice, said the oil drilling project is at odds with Biden’s historic climate leadership while the Alaska Wilderness League said the decision ignored the concerns of indigenous communities and was “incredibly disappointing”. Environmental groups had sued late last year, making the argument that the government failed to take into account the impact that drilling would have on fragile wildlife.

In February, an appeals court blocked construction of ConocoPhillips’ $2 billion-plus Willow crude oil project in Alaska. The Trump administration approved the Willow development plan in October. The project has been pushed by Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, a Republican, who along with another Republican senator, Dan Sullivan, discussed the oil project during a meeting with Biden on Monday, according to Politico. Murkowski said the engagement with the Biden administration officials since that meeting was “very productive”.

U.S., California Look to Develop Wind Farms Off Pacific Coast
  + stars: | 2021-05-25 | by ( Katy Stech Ferek | ) + 0.91   time to read: +1 min
Federal and state officials are working to develop two wind farm sites off the coast of California, which they say could ultimately generate enough electricity to power about 1.6 million homes. One project site would be off the central California coast near Morro Bay, and the other would be in the waters off Humboldt County near the Oregon border. Biden administration officials say they would be the first U.S. commercial-scale wind projects off the Pacific Coast. Wind power is a key part of President Biden’s plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Gavin Newsom said developing offshore wind energy “could be a game changer to achieving California’s clean energy goals.”

The Biden Administration said Tuesday that it will develop offshore wind projects in the Pacific Ocean in partnership with the state of California. The move, which is the first of its kind, is a key stepping stone toward the White House's goal of deploying 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030. This area is projected to support 3 GW of offshore wind. Tuesday's announcement comes just weeks after the White House approved the first major offshore wind project in U.S. waters. In an effort to counter this, the federal government has invested more than $100 million in advancing developments around floating offshore wind projects.

REUTERS/Joshua Roberts/File PhotoTwo U.S. senators, a Republican and a Democrat, called on Congress on Monday to reauthorize the Voting Rights Act, as Republican-controlled state legislatures pass new measures that voting-rights advocates say will restrict access to the ballot box. Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Republican Lisa Murkowski of Alaska made the pitch in a letter that noted that the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which outlawed discriminatory voting practices, was last reauthorized in 2006 with a bipartisan Senate vote of 98-0. Democrats, who hold narrow majorities in both houses of Congress, have passed a sweeping voting rights bill in the House of Representatives. Four Republican-led states, including Georgia and Florida, passed measures this year that activists say limit voting rights, with similar laws pending in several other states. Democrats later this year are expected to reintroduce the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which restores the 1965 Voting Rights Act's measures that were struck down by the Supreme Court.

The federal government this week gave the green light to Vineyard Wind , the nation's first commercial scale offshore wind farm. Although onshore wind is a growing part of the nation's power grid, offshore wind is just getting off the ground. Dirty coal must be replaced by much more solar and wind — including a series of offshore wind farms that begin with Vineyard Wind. "We do feel a responsibility to get it right," said Bill White, vice president of offshore wind at Avangrid Renewables, which co-owns the Vineyard Wind venture along with Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners. "The Biden administration has convened an all-of-government approach to offshore wind, which we've never seen before."

The Biden administration will rely on “locally led and voluntary” efforts to meet President Joe Biden’s goal of conserving 30 percent of U.S. lands and waters by 2030, the administration said in a report released Wednesday. Although environmental and conservation groups hailed the target as ambitious, the administration did not initially offer specifics about how it would meet that target or how conservation would be defined. The report, titled "Conserving and Restoring America the Beautiful," offers the first look at how the administration believes it can meet the target. The Biden administration approach, laid out in the report, appears to address those concerns by emphasizing the local and voluntary nature of the effort. Still, the Biden administration is expected to take other steps in the coming months to expand protected lands and waters under federal control.
