Guizhou — A Chinese energy company in the southwest province of Guizhou is awaiting its first harvest of more than 13,500 hectares of a “diesel tree”, which will yield 15,000 tons of biodiesel oil for the energy-thirsty country.

“A green diesel oil field is taking shape in the vast mountain areas, and the oil-rich arbor is expected to become a reliable source of biofuel to meet increasing energy demand in China,” said He Yuyuan, general manager of Zhongshui Energy Development Co. Ltd., which is based in the land-locked province. read more

Financial Times: View from the Top: Peter Sutherland, chairman of BP

By Charles Pretzlik
Published: December 14 2007 02:00 | Last updated: December 14 2007 02:00

Peter Sutherland, 61, is described by some as the father of globalisation. He ran the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade and became the head of its successor body, the World Trade Organisation. Now chairman of BP and Goldman Sachs International, the investment bank’s non-US business, he has a remarkable vantage point from which to survey world affairs.

In a video interview on FT.com, Mr Sutherland talks about the current market turmoil, his fears for the Doha round of trade talks and signs of protectionism. He also discusses the successes and challenges of his decade at the top of BP, the priorities for Tony Hayward, BP’s new chief executive, and his own plans after he steps down from BP in 2009. Among other activities, he hopes to develop his interest in European integration. Edited highlights are given below. read more

chinaview.cn U.S. Senate approves new energy bill

www.chinaview.cn  2007-12-14 12:33:32     
 
WASHINGTON, Dec. 13 (Xinhua) — The U.S. Senate Republicans Thursday passed a new comprehensive energy bill after the Democrats stripped the controversial tax package from the bill.

The vote was 86-8. The first time it was voted on in the Senate, it only got 59 yeses, one vote short of the needed 60.

The Republicans rejected the bill last week because it included tax increases for oil companies.

The new energy bill contains a 21-billion-dollar tax package, under which some 13.5 billion dollars in tax breaks for the five largest oil companies would be repealed to be used for tax incentives to promote renewable fuels and energy efficiency. read more

The Washington Post: Business Over a Barrel

By Steven Pearlstein
Friday, December 14, 2007; D01

There was a time not long ago when the major business organizations played a constructive role in Washington. Even if you didn’t always agree with their positions, you had to respect the fact that they took a practical, long-term approach, turned out credible analysis and provided adult supervision over industries or companies that got too piggy. But that is no longer true for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers, which have decided to bring the same inflexibility, partisanship and religious fervor to economic issues that Christian conservatives have brought to social issues. Their relentless crusade against taxes and regulation has damaged financial markets, weakened the economy, poisoned the political atmosphere and eliminated any possibility of effectively representing their members’ interests with a Democratic Congress or White House. read more
