On the Blogs: ‘I Have No Idea Who Would Put Their Money Here’

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Think Progress:The Navajo Generating Station is facing a future familiar to many coal-fired power plants, struggling to compete with smaller, more nimble natural gas-fired generators, wind farms, and solar arrays.“You know the old saying, ‘You make money if you buy low and sell high’? They’re buying high and selling lower,” said David Schlissel, director of resource planning analysis at the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).If the Navajo Generating Station shuts down, locals will lose some 800 jobs, both at the plant and in the nearby Kayenta mine, which supplies coal to the generating station. Facing unemployment rates upwards of 40 percent, the Navajo and Hopi tribes are eager to protect those jobs, to say nothing of the revenue the operation provides.“The Navajo Nation is so dependent on the jobs and the revenue for their budget. It’s really sad because, looking forward, it just doesn’t seem to be a sustainable economic enterprise,” Schlissel said. “I have no idea who would put their money here.”More: Embattled Navajo coal plant is a preview of what’s ahead as coal declines across the U.S. On the Blogs: ‘I Have No Idea Who Would Put Their Money Here’last_img read more

first_imgMORE: How will the Finals affect Kevin Durant’s free agency?The game could have been the last ever in Oracle Arena should the series not return to Oakland. Klay Thompson returned from injury after sitting out Game 3, but even his team-high 28 points weren’t enough to overcome the Raptors’ second-half surge. The hobbled Warriors also welcomed the return of an injured Kevon Looney, but they were still without Kevin Durant.The good news for Warriors fans is that Durant practiced with the team on Sunday for the first time since suffering a calf injury in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals. Durant traveled with the team to Toronto for Games 1 and 2 of this series but was never active. The two-time Finals MVP likely wants to make an on-court statement before his impending free agency this summer. Here’s everything you need to know about watching Game 5 between the Warriors and Raptors, including the tipoff time and TV channel.

With an eye on China, India is looking to buy more US-made advanced sub-hunting planes

Sunil Lanba told India Strategic magazine that aerial-surveillance capability was an important part of navy operations, and the country’s Defense Ministry has said the P-8I is able to provide “a punitive response and maintaining a watch over India’s immediate and extended areas of interest.”New Dehli made its first purchase of the aircraft in 2009, not long after the November 2008 terrorist attack in Mumbai, during which attackers arrived by boat. India bought eight P-8I aircraft at the time, deploying them in 2013. It followed that with a purchase of four more in 2016, buying them at the 2009 price.Read it at Pulse Live Related Itemslast_img read more
