How NOT to Make a Gas Fire Pit From Scratch
 
11:16
Building a gas-fired fire pit in my small back garden. IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: This was a short-term curiosity project and this is not an instructional video. The fire pit no longer exists. The techniques and methods used here probably do not comply with any building safety regulations and this method of building a firepit may not be safe and is not recommended or endorsed by the maker of the video. This video is just for entertainment and curiosity purposes. Do not use this video as an instructional video. If you are looking to build a fire pit, please seek out appropriate expert professional advice. NOTE: In the end I found the flame too "sooty" to use for cooking food - I subsequently learned that you need to introduce a venturi-action in order to introduce enough oxygen to the flame to get a clean burn, so I would reccommend buying a proper kit rather than doing it this way.

Waxman on Changes Resulting from the Clean Air Act
 
03:59
Rep. Henry Waxman, D-CA, tells correspondent Dan Goldstein about the changes he's seen come about since the passage of the Clean Air Act in 1970. Waxman says in Los Angeles, the air quality is better, but the problem hasn't been solved. He says there is less pollution than there was 40 years ago, but it's more visible, and less harmful. He says areas that were polluted are being cleaned up, and areas that weren't polluted are being protected. He says regulation is the key to protecting the air. Waxman disputes the idea that more clean air regulations would kill jobs. He says greenhouse gas regulations that stalled in Congress in 2010 would have created millions of jobs by growing industries like solar, wind and carbon capture and storage technology. He says America could have sold that technology to the rest of the world. Now, it will likely have to buy it from China.

"Americans don't need to be afraid, they need to be informed"
 
09:12
Carl Weimer of Bellingham, WA, tells Dan Goldstein about the 1999 pipeline leak and subsequent fire that caused severe damage in the town near the Canadian border. In 1999, a 16-inch pipeline ruptured and dumped a quarter million gallons of unleaded fuel into a creek. The fuel made its way downstream and when it found an ignition source, it burned all the way back up to the pipeline, which then exploded. When he heard the news of the 2010 natural gas explosion in San Bruno California, it was an emotional moment for him, because he tried to sound an alarm about pipeline safety in the wake of the explosion in his town. Weimer says the biggest issue in pipeline safety is the operation and inspection of a line, rather than its age. Public awareness of pipelines in their neighborhoods is also an issue. He says federal regulations require pipeline companies to educate the public, and if that's done properly and people know there's a pipeline near them, it could prevent a tragedy. He says some lessons still haven't been learned after multiple disasters, including the need for automatic shutoff valves and leak detectors that could allow utilities to shut off sections of pipelines. Weimer says state regulators aren't necessarily lax in doing their jobs, but they often do not have the resources. He believes the federal government ultimately has the responsibility for making sure both federal and state inspectors have those resources. He says the public needs to demand that Congress make that happen. Weimer believes that in the past, regulators and industry have been too cozy with each other. That has changed some in recent years but there is still a problem with industry officials telling the government what regulations should be in place. He says the public still can't get its hands on those regulations without paying groups like the American Petroleum Institute to produce them. He says federal regulators have come a long way toward transparency in the past 10 years, but state regulators still ...

Seismic Seconds - The Bhopal Gas Disaster Part 1 of 3
 
09:26
The Bhopal disaster was an industrial catastrophe that took place at a pesticide plant owned and operated by Union Carbide (UCIL) in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India on December 3, 1984. Around 12 AM, the plant released methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas and other toxins, resulting in the exposure of over 500,000 people. Estimates vary on the death toll. The official immediate death toll was 2,259 and the government of M P has confirmed a total of 3787 deaths related to the gas release. Other government agencies estimate 15,000 deaths. Others estimate 8000 to 10,000 died within 72 hours and 25,000 have since died from gas-related diseases. Some 25 years after the gas leak, 390 tonnes of toxic chemicals abandoned at the UCIL plant continue to leak and pollute the groundwater in the region and affect thousands of Bhopal residents who depend on it, though there is some dispute as to whether the chemicals still stored at the site pose any continuing health hazard. There are currently civil and criminal cases related to the disaster ongoing in the United States District Court, Manhattan and the District Court of Bhopal, India against Union Carbide, now owned by Dow Chemical Company, with an Indian arrest warrant pending against Warren Anderson, CEO of Union Carbide at the time of the disaster. No one has yet been prosecuted. The UCIL factory was established in 1969 near Bhopal. 50.9 % was owned by Union Carbide Corporation (UCC) and 49.1 % by various Indian investors, including public sector financial institutions. It produced the pesticide carbaryl (trademark Sevin). In 1979 a methyl isocyanate (MIC) production plant was added to the site. MIC, an intermediate in carbaryl manufacture, was used instead of less hazardous but more expensive materials. UCC understood the properties of MIC and its handling requirements. During the night of December 23, 1984, large amounts of water entered tank 610, containing 42 tonnes of methyl isocyanate. The resulting exothermic reaction increased the temperature inside the tank to over 200 °C (392 °F), raising the pressure to a level the tank was not designed to withstand. This forced the emergency venting of pressure from the MIC holding tank, releasing a large volume of toxic gases into the atmosphere. The reaction sped up because of the presence of iron in corroding non-stainless steel pipelines. A mixture of poisonous gases flooded the city of Bhopal, causing great panic as people woke up with a burning sensation in their lungs. Thousands died immediately from the effects of the gas and many were trampled in the panic. Theories of how the water entered the tank differ. At the time, workers were cleaning out pipes with water, and some claim that owing to bad maintenance and leaking valves, it was possible for the water to leak into tank 610. In December 1985 the New York Times reported that according to UCIL plant managers the hypothesis of this route of entry of water was tested in the presence of the Central Bureau Investigators and was found to be negative. UCC also maintains that this route was not possible, and that it was an act of sabotage by a "disgruntled worker" who introduced water directly into the tank. However, the company's investigation team found no evidence of the necessary connection. The 1985 reports give a picture of what led to the disaster and how it developed, although they differ in details. Factors leading to this huge gas leak include: -The use of hazardous chemicals (MIC) instead of less dangerous ones -Storing these chemicals in large tanks instead of over 200 steel drums. -Possible corroding material in pipelines -Poor maintenance after the plant ceased production in the early 1980s -Failure of several safety systems (due to poor maintenance and regulations). -Safety systems being switched off to save money - including the MIC tank refrigeration system which alone would have prevented the disaster.

Heinz Hilbrecht The forthcoming Energy Infrastructure Package
 
31:04
The Transition to a Low-Carbon Energy Future: Renewable Energy and Grid Development. About the Event: This event focused on the importance of the electricity grid as a key enabler of renewable energy integraton in Ireland and Europe. Over recent years the electricity sector has entered a period of remarkable change. This change has been characterized by a drive to increase environmental sustainability, energy security and economic competiveness, and is being delivered through a commitment to increase the level of renewable energy on the power system. The European Union (EU) aims at increasing the share of renewable energy sources in Europe's final energy consumption to 20% by 2020, and estimates that 35% of total electricity consumption has to come from renewable energy generation to meet this target. Ireland has also adopted its own ambitious renewable energy target that 40% of electricity demand be derived from renewable sources by 2020. Although considerable progress has been made in Ireland and across Europe in the renewable energy space, it is important not to underestimate the many challenges that lie ahead. Today, electricity networks in Ireland and across Europe require significant upgrades and new grid infrastructure in order to integrate increasing amounts of renewbale energy and faciltate the transition towards a low-carbon energy future. While EirGrid's "Grid25" strategy provides Ireland with a solid platform to achieve this goal, difficult challenges remain. Without the approprite grid infrastructure in place, integrating distributed intermittent renewable energy sources will be impossible. In November 2010, the European Commission will present a new Energy Infrastructure package to the European Council and Parliament. It aims to replace the current framework for trans-European energy networks with a broad framework for building a modern integrated grid system Europe-wide. At this event, leading representatives from the European Commission, ENTSO-E, (the represenentative body for EU Transmission System Operators (TSO)) and EirGrid, Ireland's TSO, discussed the challenges and opportunities of building grid infrastructure, and meeting the renewable energy targets in Ireland and Europe. About the Speakers: Heinz Hilbrecht Director for Security of Supply and Energy Markets, European Commission Heinz Hilbrecht is since 2006 director for "Security of Supply and Energy Markets" in the European Commission. His directorate developed the Commission's Strategic Energy Reviews of January 2007 and November 2008 outlining a common approach for the energy policies of the Union. He was responsible for the "Third Energy Package", that is the regulatory framework for the EU gas and electricity markets adopted last year. In 2008/9 he successfully negotiated the Nabucco intergovernmental agreement between four EU Member States and Turkey. A proposal for a new regulation on gas security of supply is currently in the legislative process. His work programme for the current year includes in particular a regulation on transparency and integrity of the gas and electricity wholesale trading markets, and a revision of the Trans-European energy infrastructure programme of the EU. Heinz Hilbrecht began his career as an economist in Germany before joining the energy department of the European Commission in 1980. He worked from 1986 to 1990 at the EU embassy in Washington DC covering energy, environment and transport, and from 1990 to 1991 as assistant to the Commission's Director General for Personnel and Administration in Brussels. In 1991 he became a Head of Unit in transport policy -- first for five years in the aviation sector, and from 1996 to 1999 for railway policy.

GENO CAPONE FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE
 
00:14
WWW.GENOCAPONE.COM Jobs My plan would bring the state and the private sector together by utilizing our universities' technology and innovation to spur business growth. Our oil and gas industry currently supports 14,400 well-paying jobs in Ohio. With more than 60,000 active oil & natural gas wells that do not require subsidies (a grant or financial assistance), Ohioans also save $65 million annually by producing oil in our own backyard. Our local wells reduce market volatility, lead to less expensive commodity costs, and avoid expenses associated with interstate pipelines. By putting policies in place that encourage development, we could create an additional 23,000 jobs in Ohio, paving a path to economic recovery and long-term stability. Reform Education I support key education reform and want to see reduced state mandates. Two ingredients of a successful education system in Ohio are parental choice and providing the appropriate funding levels for our schools. Ohio must shift more K-12 dollars to classrooms. Ohio ranks 47th in the nation in the share of elementary and secondary education spending that goes to instruction and 9th in the share that goes to administration. My initiatives include a law to guarantee 95 cents of every federal education dollar going directly to the classroom for activities and services (the current amount is 65 cents) and legislation that would return control of some 35 federal education programs to states and local officials. Reduce Spending My plan involves uncovering and eliminating wasteful spending and finding ways to reduce the expenditures of our state. In the 2010-11 budget, the current administration supported 134 new fees, fines, and penalties. That is unacceptable. I will introduce performance audits of state services, which are estimated to cost $15 million with potential savings up to $4 billion. We need to provide incentives to counties for combining services. I will push to negotiate all state supplier contracts. We must be prepared to put everything on the table for consideration, including every program, agency, benefit and contract. Economic Development 70% of our college graduates leave Ohio for employment elsewhere. I support H.B. 144 that would grant an income tax credit eliminating tax liability for 5 years for individuals who obtain a baccalaureate degree and who reside in Ohio. I would also encourage additional internships as a venue to keep the brightest and most talented individuals here in Ohio. My plan would also support H.B. 437 that would enact a nonrefundable tax credit for a business that increases payroll and expands into a vacant facility. I would support work sharing or short term compensation to avoid layoffs. We must provide access to capital, low interest loans, and job training programs to enable our businesses to flourish. Streamline Medicaid Require the state to follow through on recommendations from the State Auditor to reduce Medicaid's inefficiencies. Reforms to the Medicaid system will save the state more than $120 million annually. Regulatory Reform Help businesses cut through bureaucratic red tape and provide accountability and transparency in crafting agency regulations. Regulations should facilitate, not hinder, economic growth. Regulations should be transparent and responsive, with compliance as easy and inexpensive as possible. I support reviewing and identifying all state regulations, reducing those that are above and beyond federal regulations.

Jobs My plan would bring the state and the private sector together by utilizing our universities' technology and innovation to spur business growth. Our oil and gas industry currently supports 14,400 well-paying jobs in Ohio. With more than 60,000 active oil & natural gas wells that do not require subsidies (a grant or financial assistance), Ohioans also save $65 million annually by producing oil in our own backyard. Our local wells reduce market volatility, lead to less expensive commodity costs, and avoid expenses associated with interstate pipelines. By putting policies in place that encourage development, we could create an additional 23,000 jobs in Ohio, paving a path to economic recovery and long-term stability. Reform Education I support key education reform and want to see reduced state mandates. Two ingredients of a successful education system in Ohio are parental choice and providing the appropriate funding levels for our schools. Ohio must shift more K-12 dollars to classrooms. Ohio ranks 47th in the nation in the share of elementary and secondary education spending that goes to instruction and 9th in the share that goes to administration. My initiatives include a law to guarantee 95 cents of every federal education dollar going directly to the classroom for activities and services (the current amount is 65 cents) and legislation that would return control of some 35 federal education programs to states and local officials. Reduce Spending My plan involves uncovering and eliminating wasteful spending and finding ways to reduce the expenditures of our state. In the 2010-11 budget, the current administration supported 134 new fees, fines, and penalties. That is unacceptable. I will introduce performance audits of state services, which are estimated to cost $15 million with potential savings up to $4 billion. We need to provide incentives to counties for combining services. I will push to negotiate all state supplier contracts. We must be prepared to put everything on the table for consideration, including every program, agency, benefit and contract. Economic Development 70% of our college graduates leave Ohio for employment elsewhere. I support H.B. 144 that would grant an income tax credit eliminating tax liability for 5 years for individuals who obtain a baccalaureate degree and who reside in Ohio. I would also encourage additional internships as a venue to keep the brightest and most talented individuals here in Ohio. My plan would also support H.B. 437 that would enact a nonrefundable tax credit for a business that increases payroll and expands into a vacant facility. I would support work sharing or short term compensation to avoid layoffs. We must provide access to capital, low interest loans, and job training programs to enable our businesses to flourish. Streamline Medicaid Require the state to follow through on recommendations from the State Auditor to reduce Medicaid's inefficiencies. Reforms to the Medicaid system will save the state more than $120 million annually. Regulatory Reform Help businesses cut through bureaucratic red tape and provide accountability and transparency in crafting agency regulations. Regulations should facilitate, not hinder, economic growth. Regulations should be transparent and responsive, with compliance as easy and inexpensive as possible. I support reviewing and identifying all state regulations, reducing those that are above and beyond federal regulations.

Big Oil Derrick Goes Drilling For Michigan's Junk Shot Politicians
 
01:32
Big Oil's undue influence in Michigan is unwelcome. It's time for our lawmakers no matter what side of the aisle they are on to plug the pipeline of influence. It's time for our lawmakers to stop blindly supporting Big Oil and drilling in the Great Lakes, dangerous positions that endanger Michigan communities, local industries from tourism to fishing and agriculture, and local jobs. We, the undersigned, call on Michigan's lawmakers to stand up for us by standing up to Big Oil. We demand an end to campaign contributions from Big Oil, an end to voting for subsidizing Big Oil with our tax dollars and a permanent ban ensuring that the Great Lakes are NEVER opened for drilling. We have seen the horrific results of Big Oil operating with a lack of regard for rules, regulations and safety measures. The BP oil disaster spilled more than 4 million barrels of oil into the Gulf, making it the worst natural disaster in U.S. history. An Enbridge pipeline rupture flooded more than 1 million gallons of crude oil into the Kalamazoo River, making it the worst spill in the Midwest in recent history.

Arcuri One Minute Speech Discussing the Prospect of Natural Gas Drilling in New York State
 
01:11
In a "One-Minute Speech" on the House Floor on January 21, 2009, Congressman Arcuri briefly discusses the issue of natural gas drilling in New York State. While Arcuri is not opposed to natural gas drilling completely, he thinks it is vitally necessary to protect the New York State water supply and feels New York State should take every precaution necessary to do so. Recently, Arcuri called for New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to withdraw its Draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (DSGEIS) because he believes that it does not go far enough to protect water resources in New York State. Additionally, Arcuri has previously met with several members of local constituent groups, New York Rural Water Association and was part of a rally on the steps of City Hall in New York City to discuss his views and continue to gather information on the prospect of natural gas drilling.

The economic power of oil and gas
 
02:12
In the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon well blow-out, the debate now centers on the oil and gas sector's future role in the Gulf of Mexico. While the focus has been on environmental impact and technical challenges, and on the effects on local fishing and tourist industries, less attention has been paid to the considerable economic significance of the entire oil and gas sector. Appro is expanding its supercomputing hardware portfolio with offerings targeting the high-frequency trading space of the oil and gas market. On Oct.12, Appro unveiled the dual-socket HF1 server, which includes over clocked Intel Xeon 5600 "Westmere" processors and a liquid-cooling system that is designed to create the kind of high-power, low-latency environment that traders need for their rapid transactions. Crude for November delivery fell 32 cents, or 0.4%, to settle at $82.69 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract had traded as high as $84.12 earlier and swung between small gains and losses for most of the session.

If U.S . says no to offshore drilling then other nations will.

President Obama's executive order imposed a six-month moratorium on drilling for crude oil and natural gas within the 200-mile territorial limit that has been recognized by the international law is been temporarily suspended by a federal district judge, offshore drilling will not come to a screeching halt even if this decision ultimately is determined to be within his constitutional powers. Northern Offshore Ltd. a Bermuda holding company which operates offshore, oil and gas production and drilling vessels said on Sunday that the company's drillship Energy Searcher has resumed operations in Vietnam under its drilling contract with Vietgazprom, a joint venture between Petrovietnam and Gazprom. Since oil started spewing into the Gulf of Mexico, there has been increased scrutiny in Canada about proposed drilling in the Arctic -- the argument being that if there were a similar failure in the North, the ensuing disaster might be even worse.
