By Peter Gollon In the April 7 issue of LIBN, Rob Welter, president of Operation SPLASH, came out in favor of repowering the E. F. Barrett power plant in Island Park. “Repowering” is somewhat of a misnomer – it really means building a brand new billion-dollar plant to replace the old one. Mr. Welter stated that a new power plant “would significantly reduce the amount of cooling seawater [the present plant] currently uses…. That change alone would save an untold number of fish larvae and other marine life that currently are impacted by the plant. Repowering would also greatly lower emission rates from the plant.” Those statements are true. And for some years environmentalists pushed LIPA t... Read More

Small business owners who install solar panels or help customers use clean energy don’t seem fazed by President Donald Trump’s plan to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accord, saying they expect demand for their services will still keep growing. They’re confident in two trends they see: A growing awareness and concern about the environment, and a desire by consumers and businesses to lower their energy costs. “It’s an economic decision people are making, although it also makes environmental sense,” says Suvi Sharma, CEO of Solaria, a Fremont, California-based company that designs and sells solar energy panel systems.

Looking to propose a shareholder vote? It may get tougher

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , ,

If you’re a shareholder in a major corporation, having your voice heard may soon become harder. Tucked into a Republican bill to defang the Dodd-Frank financial rules is a provision to make it more difficult to bring proposals to a shareholder vote. It would mean fewer investors could force votes on issues important to them — from executive pay to political spending to gender discrimination. The House is to vote on the legislation this week. On its surface, the provision to weaken small-shareholder influence has nothing to do with the overall bill’s goal of reversing the stricter rules that took effect after the 2008 financial crisis.

US hiring pullback suggests firms are straining to fill jobs

Are employers starting to run out of workers to hire? A hiring pullback reported in Friday’s U.S. jobs data for May raises that prospect. The economy added just 138,000 jobs, which was still high enough to help drop the unemployment rate to a 16 year-low of 4.3 percent. With the recovery from the Great Recession having reached its eighth year, hiring is gradually weakening. “It’s definitely becoming an increasing problem for businesses — finding qualified workers,” said Stephen Stanley, chief economist at Amherst Pierpont Securities. “The pool has diminished considerably.” Not only did employers slow their hiring during May.

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , ,

U.S. employers pulled back on hiring in May by adding only 138,000 jobs. Hiring was still enough to help keep pushing unemployment lower. The Labor Department said Friday that the unemployment rate fell to 4.3 percent from 4.4 percent. But the rate declined mainly because people stopped looking for work last month and so were no longer counted as unemployed. The government’s report suggested that eight years into the recovery from the Great Recession, job growth may be slowing after a long period of robust gains. Besides the hiring pullback in May, the government on Friday revised down its estimate of job growth in March and April by a combined 66,000.
