THE NEW YORK TIMES: Montana’s Governor Eyes Coal to Solve U.S. Fuel Costs

“The Democratic governor of this Republican state said he had met with Shell president John Hofmeister… to discuss his proposals.”

Irish Independent: UK safety firm hired to check Corrib pipeline

A BRITISH based company specialising in technology risk assessment has been appointed to conduct an independent safety review of the controversial Corrib Gas onshore pipeline in Co Mayo.

The latest move came amid renewed calls for the so-called Rossport Five, the men jailed for protesting against the pipeline, to be released from prison.

Marine and Natural Resources Minister Noel Dempsey last night confirmed that the company, Advantica, had been appointed to conduct the study following a tender process. He ordered the review after concerns by local people about the safety of the 9km pipeline. read more
