US President Donald Trump was characteristically hyperbolic this week after European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker pledged the EU would build more terminals to import US liquefied natural gas (LNG). "They want very much to do that and we have plenty of it," Trump said. True, the US has "plenty of it." But whether the EU really "very much wants to do that" is moot. "Juncker's promise to import more LNG is of course not his promise to make," Tim Boersma, an energy expert at Columbia University, told DW following Wednesday's talks between the two leaders. "Just like the White House does not sell LNG, Brussels does not buy it. But there is a reasonable chance that the market can help Juncker out a little in the coming years."

Environmentalists may claim flying airplanes is driving catastrophic global warming, but fear of dangerous warming isn’t enough to get them to stop flying, according to new marketing research. “Green consumers today find themselves in an unenviable position,” reads a new report by researchers from the U.K. and New Zealand. “They are caught between two competing travel ideals and policymakers have handed them the responsibility for arbitrating between them.”The study, published in the Journal of Marketing Management, interviewed 29 so-called “green consumers” in the U.K. to see why these supposedly eco-conscious individuals chose to fly even though they believe their activity is driving global warming. “Despite their self-identification as green consumers and their clear view that flying harms the environment, decisions around air travel were not straightforward for most of the individuals who were interviewed,” researchers found. … [Read more...] about ‘A Lot Of Sacrifice And Suffering’: Study Shows That Enviros Want To Fly In Gas-Guzzling Airplanes
