Especial "recomendado"; El Gobierno de Feijóo, utilizando el dinero de la Xunta financia pescado presuntamente contaminado del Río Mekong (Panga) a los enfermos de los hospitales gallegos ante la pasividad de la OPOSICIÖN. PSOE.MAREA.BNG.

Antonio Rodríguez Miranda, denunciaba la "actitud irresponsable del Gobierno gallego" (Touriño, Bipartito) , cuando la Xunta admitía por un lado a todos los centros dependientes de Vicepresidencia, que no era conveniente comprar ese pescado y por otro lo estaba surtiendo, indica el PP. "Podemos entender que se consumiese tiempo atrás, antes de disponer de evidencias analíticas, pero una vez conocidos los informes que alertan de la presencia de agentes patógenos en los lotes comercializados en Galicia, no hay disculpa que justifique esta negligencia", afirma Rodríguez Miranda.

Antonio Rodríguez Miranda, denuncia la "actitud irresponsable del Gobierno gallego", pues la Xunta admitió por un lado a todos los centros dependientes de Vicepresidencia, que no era conveniente comprar ese pescado.

Sin embargo, según Antonio Rodríguez, en el escrito remitido por el bipartito, "se admite implícitamente que este pez panga se ha incluido en el menú del Hospital de Verín, a razón de dos veces por semana desde el año 2006, y en el Hospital de Valdeorras se ha venido consumiendo desde hace 5 años es decir 2003", indica el PP. "Podemos entender que se consumiese tiempo atrás, antes de disponer de evidencias analíticas, pero una vez conocidos los informes que alertan de la presencia de agentes patógenos en los lotes comercializados en Galicia, no hay disculpa que justifique esta negligencia", afirma Rodríguez Miranda.

La OCU ha analizado 23 muestras de panga (17 congeladas y 6 compradas como frescas) y 6 de perca para comprobar diferentes aspectos de su calidad y seguridad alimentaria. Debido al modo de producción intensivo y a las zonas en las que se localiza, sospechábamos la presencia de posibles contaminantes ambientales.

Restos de contaminantes

En 4 muestras de panga de las 23 analizadas, encontramos un herbicida, la trifluoralina, que ha sido prohibida en Europa. En los filetes de perca no se han encontrado plaguicidas.

También detectamos mercurio, un metal pesado, en 9 de las 29 muestras de panga y perca analizadas. Las cantidades de mercurio no superan el límite legal de 0,5 mg/ kg, pero en algunos casos, sí alcanzan la mitad de esa cifra. Teniendo en cuenta que estos pescados se sirven en comedores escolares y los niños pueden llegar a comerlos varias veces por semana, al final la ingesta de mercurio puede llegar a ser significativa.

El panga, un pescado muy contaminado.

El panga es un pescado de baja calidad nutritiva, no contiene apenas Omega 3 ni otros nutrientes esenciales y además va cargado de  mercurio, antibióticos, bacterias, arsénico y pesticidas, debido a la superproducción intensiva en un medio altamente contaminado.

Su importación está prohibida en países como Noruega, Japón y Estados Unidos.  En España, aunque tras varios análisis de este pescado se hayan encontrado tóxicos como la Trifluoralina, un herbicida prohibido en Europa, altas concentraciones de Mercurio y bacterias como listeria monoytogenes y Vibrio Cholerae ( responsable del cólera ), no se ha prohibido su importación

Documental francés sobre el panga. Este video nos muestra sin género de dudas ni documentos, las condiciones en las que se cría el pez panga y en qué condiciones están las aguas del río Mekong, uno de los más poblados y contaminados del mundo donde se vierten sin depurar todo tipo de residuos industriales, de transporte, de la acuicultura, de la agricultura,etc, que sale directamente importado para los hospitales de la Xunta de Galicia para alimentar los enfermos.

En 2008 las Autoridades Sanitarias Noruegas ya prohibieron la importación de panga procedente de Vietnam. La NSA (Autoridad Sanitaria Noruega) fue alertada después de que un consumidor cayera gravemente enfermo, por segunda vez, tras ingerir pez panga. El cliente había comprado filetes congelados de pangasius en una tienda de Haugesung. El análisis realizado por la NSA determinó que el pescado estaba contaminado con estafilococos, que causan intensos vómitos y diarrea, y por Vibrio cholerae, que en gran cantidad puede causar cólera.

La Secretaría de Salud de México también estableció una alerta sanitaria con respecto a 44 toneladas de tilapia y panga (“basa” en México) procedentes de Vietnam que estaban infectadas por Vibrio Cholerae el 20 de Agosto de 2010.

AESAN (Agencia Española de Seguridad Alimentaria y Nutrición). Ofrecía informes son el resultado de consultas que hace la AESAN al Comité Científico.

En la revista nº 12 hay un informe  del 17 de febrero de 2010 que demuestra una seria preocupación por parte de la AESAN en lo referente a la presencia de Vibrio Cholerae en productos pesqueros importados como el panga.

En el informe, el Comité de científicos expone claramente que se recomienda TOLERANCIA CERO (esto significa ausencia de esta bacteria en 25g de muestra) en cuanto a la presencia de V. cholerae de cualquier serotipo en productos pesqueros importados, especialmente aquellos procedentes del sudeste asiático. Además el Comité añade que la FDA y la mayor parte de las legislaciones de otros paises establecen toleracia cero y que recomienda la misma medida en este país.

El panga es el tercer pescado más importado por España. De Vietnam proceden más de 50.000 toneladas de panga, si bien el resto se importa a través de la India, los Países Bajos, Francia, Portugal e Italia. Según los datos de Aduanas, el acumulado de panga en el 2010 fue de 52.984 toneladas, combinando las presentaciones congeladas y refrigeradas, lo que ha convertido a España en el tercer país de todo el mundo en compras de este tipo de pescado, solo por detrás de Polonia y de Rusia. http://www.lavozdegalicia.es/dinero/2011/04/02/0003_201104G2P32991.htm

 Las firmas de cátering contratadas por la Xunta de Galicia erradican el panga de los menús escolares. http://www.lavozdegalicia.es/vigo/2011/04/09/0003_201104V9C5999.htm

El Pangasius hypopophtalmus es una especie de pez omnívoro de agua dulce, de la familia de los Pangásidos, comestible, que se cría por acuicultura intensiva en Vietnam, Tailandia, India y otros países. Su principales mercados son Estados Unidos y  Europa, principalmente Rusia, España  y Alemania, debido a su bajo precio y al gran parecido nutricional que tiene con la merluza.  En España es uno de los pescados más consumidos y somos el tercer país importador del mundo. Así, según datos del Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Medio Rural y Marino, nuestras importaciones superan las 200.000 toneladas convirtiendonos en los mayores importadores del Mundo de este pescado, prohibido en la mayoría d elos países Eurpeos y EEUU.

El reciente seminario “Cultivo de panga en Vietnam: la conciliación del auge productivo con la sostenibilidad”, organizado por el Ministerio de Industria y Comercio de Vietnam en la European Seafood Exposition 2011, la producción en aquel país se ha multiplicado por 90 en la última década, desde unas 37.000 toneladas métricas hasta las casi 6.500.000 actuales. Algo semejante ha ocurrido con los ingresos por exportaciones que han pasado de 40 millones de dólares a unos 1.500 millones, distribuidos entre 136 países. La razón es su cultivo intensivo por técnicas de acuicultura, que quiere implantar Rosa Quintana y el PPdeG en las costas de Galicia..

Su masificación y cría, en las granjas acuícolas asiáticas de los ríos contamonados los pangas suelen cultivarse en cajas flotantes, dentro de charcas o ríos,  sobre todo, en el delta del Mekong y aparte de la alimentación natural se usan diversos piensos para su rápido engorde. Actualmente, en términos cuantitativos de toneladas, en Vietnam la cifra iguala a la de la producción de arroz y, en cuanto a valor económico constituyen ocupan el tercer lugar de todas las exportaciones del país.

 Hace 3-4 años comenzaron a publicarse diversas sospechas respecto a las condiciones sanitarias del panga, lo que obligó a que la Comisión Europea (CE), iniciase una investigación al respecto tras una denuncia realizada por Los Verdes sobre la presencia de patógenos peligrosos para la salud en partidas analizadas de este producto, más peligroso todavía teniendo en cuenta su alta utilización en los comedores escolares. Según el portavoz de Los Verdes, durante 2007 y 2008 se produjeron cinco alertas del Sistema de Alerta Rápida para piensos y alimentos (Rasff) de la UE relacionadas con la presencia de residuos de medicamentos veterinarios en peces de la especie pangasius procedentes de Vietnam. El debate sobre la calidad sanitaria del pez panga llegó al Parlamento Europeo, al Congreso de los Diputados y al Parlamento de Galicia.  En Europa, la Comisión Europea confirmó que Vietnam fue objeto de hasta ocho notificaciones en el marco del sistema Rasff, durante 2007 y 2008. En Estados Unidos o Japón llegó a prohibirse la importación de panga.

En Galicia, según unos análisis realizados por el laboratorio de referencia de Galicia de Anfaco-Cecopesca, se detectó  "la presencia de Listeria monocytogenes y Vibrio cholerae en el pescado de acuicultura de origen vietnamita que se comercializa como panga".

A raíz de ello apoarecieron por todo Europa las alarmas y analíticas que afirman como “Los pangas están infectados con elevados niveles de venenos y bacterias, arsénico de los residuos industriales,  tóxicos industriales peligrosos, metales contaminantes, fenoles policlorados, cloratos, hexaclorobenceno, etc.”. “No hay nada natural en los pangas. Son alimentados con peces muertos, restos y huesos y con residuos de harinas y granos de baja calidad”, “la alimentación de los pangas está completamente fuera de toda reglamentación”, “los pangas son inyectados con productos hormonales para que produzcan más huevos”, “la tremenda cantidad de pangas disponibles hará que se transformen en otros alimentos, como "surimis", y alimentos para animales”.

Recientemente, la OCU (Organización de Consumidores y Usuarios) ha recomendado no consumir panga o perca más de una vez por semana, basándose en los resultados de unos análisis sobre 23 muestras de panga (17 congeladas y 6 adquiridas como frescas) y 6 de perca en los que han encontrado restos de pesticidas en el panga y trazas de mercurio en los filetes de panga y perca. Concretamente, hallaron presencia de un herbicida, la trifluoralina, en 4 de las 23 muestras de panga. Se trata de una sustancia prohibida en Europa y, además,  9 de las 29 muestras de panga y perca analizadas presentaron restos de mercurio.

 La Comisión de Sanidad, Política Social y Consumo del Congreso español de los Diputados aprobó una Proposición NO de Ley relativa al control sanitario del pez panga, que se publicó en el BOCG, Congreso Diputados Serie D, Número 284, el 3 de noviembre de 2009, que dio lugar a la correspondiente información y actuación por parte del Ministerio de Sanidad y Consumo.

Pescado asiático contaminado en el menú de los hospitales de Galicia pagado con fondos públicos delante de la Campaña Publicitaria de la Xunta "PescadeRías de Onde si Non".

PescadeRias pangaasiaticoPladesemapesga exige la DIMISIÖN de Rosa Quintana por facilitar la venta de pescado contaminado de china (panga) en los hospitales públicos de Galicia.

Las redes sociales "crispadas" ante la explosión de posts sobre el menu de un hospital de Galicia, que ofrece (PANGA) pescado prohibido en Estados Unidos y muchos paises de la UE, criado en países de Asia....Que un hospital público de la Xunta de Galicia (Sergas) ofrezca pescado importado presuntamente contaminado en la autonomía reconocida en todo el Mundo como la de mayor flota pesquera, delante de millonarias campañas financidas con fondos públicos para consumir el producto de Galicia, "tiene bemoles" y pareciera surrealista, con más gravedad si cabe, delante de la postura abierta de la Sra Rosa Quintana ya conocida en fabor de la acuicultura.

De la campaña en favor del consumo de productos gallegos cabe destacar a la propia Jefa de Prensa Sra Pastora Charlin, financiando la campaña "Pesca de Rías de Onde se Non" con fondos públicos a una web que dirige o gestionó ella misma, www.canalriasbaixas.com

El despropósito es de tal calibre, ante una oposición confabuladora, que cobra todos los meses por defender los derechos, no solo de los consumidores, si no, de los gallegos,as, que se muestra impasible y colaborador con esta realidad del PANGA EN EL MENÜ DE LOS HOSPITALES GALLEGOS DE LA XUNTA (SERGAS).pangaasiatico pescaderias xunta rosaquintana

SE QUERES COMER PANGA, Ó HOSPITAL DO BARBANZA (SERGAS-XUNTA DE GALICIA) PODES IR.

 Un dos moitos corresponsais que temos nos portos de este pais, pasounos hoxe esta foto do menú do dia no HOSPITAL BARBANZA en Ribeira. Pois, si. Leedes ben.

"PANGA A LA ROMANA"...nun Hospital.

 O panga é criado en catividade en granxas acuícolas ao longo do río Mekong entre Vietnam e en China. En Estados Unidos, prohibiron a súa importación, debido á presenza de sustancias contaminantes e a sospeita que podería conter antibióticos.Foi cuestionado polo Eurodeputado Daniel Varela Suanzes-Carpegna (PP), ó soliciar á Comisión de Pesca na Unión Europea que se pronunciase acerca dos controis que foron ou están a ser levados a cabo pola UE sobre as importacións de filetes de panga de Asia, e que resultados obtivéronse deles; se se detectou a presenza de sustancias prohibidas ou contaminantes nas importacións e, en caso afirmativo, se poden especificarse os produtos en cuestión e os seus países de orixe.

 A Cooperativa de Armadores de Vigo e outras asociacións do sector pesqueiro galego, decidiron enviar a Anfaco-Cecopesca, laboratorio de referencia de Galicia, mostras deste peixe para a súa análise, adquiridas en diferentes supermercados de Vigo. En 6 das 8 mostras de panga atopáronse presenza de "listeria monocytogenes", bacilo causante da listeriosis, así como, nunha delas, ademais, restos da bacteria portadora do cólera (Vibrio cholerae).

 O ano pasado o conselleiro económico e comercial da Embaixada Española en Vietnam, Isaac Martín, consideraba que os valores de produción desta especie seguirán crecendo dunha forma moderada nos próximos anos pero que terán que facer fronte a problemas como ?o uso de sustancias prohibidas nas granxas?, que pode obrigar aos países importadores a pechar as fronteiras a este produto, ou cuestións ambientais derivadas dos efectos do desenvolvemento dunha acuicultura intensiva que no futuro pode limitar a súa produción.

ASI QUE SI QUERES PANGA, PODES "DISFRUTALO" NO HOSPITAL DO BARBANZA. XENTILEZA DO SERGAS.

On Monday February 27th, 2012, WikiLeaks began publishing The Global Intelligence Files, over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered  "global intelligence" company Stratfor. The e-mails date between July  2004 and late December 2011. They reveal the inner workings of a company  that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential  intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal's Dow  Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government  agencies, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US  Marines and the US Defence Intelligence Agency. The emails show  Stratfor's web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques and psychological methods.

From: , Worldwatch Institute, More from this Affiliate Published May 28, 2008 10:09 AM Study Supports U.S. Wind Expansion
Wind energy can supply 20 percent of U.S. electricity needs by 2030 at a "modest" cost difference, a new U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) report says. The analysis predicts that the 20 percent wind scenario would cost about 2 percent more than sticking with the current energy mix, which relies more heavily on traditional fossil fuels.

"The 20 percent wind scenario entails higher initial capital costs (to install wind capacity and associated transmission infrastructure) in many areas, yet offers lower ongoing energy costs than conventional power plants for operations, maintenance, and fuel," said the report, which was written in conjunction with industry and environmental analysts. Under the scenario, 500,000 new jobs would be created.
To reach their goal by 2030, the department said wind energy installation would need to triple from the current rate of 5.2 gigawatts (GW) added in 2007 to more than 16 GW per year by 2018, with that pace continuing through 2030. The total wind energy growth, 290 GW, would displace the projected use of coal for power generation by 18 percent and the use of natural gas by about 50 percent.
Such a dramatic increase in wind capacity would require large-scale expansion of the U.S. electrical transmission grid to access the best wind resources and relieve grid congestion. Power companies would also have to add gas turbine generators to provide back-up electricity when the wind isn't blowing, which ranges from 60 to 75 percent of the day in some areas, according to Thomas Key, renewable energy technology leader for the Electric Power Research Institute.
One of the most consistent criticisms of wind is that, due to its intermittent nature, improved electricity storage is necessary. "We don't have many options for electrical energy storage right now," Key said. "We really need some technological advances to find economic advances on this scale."
The study, however, finds that electricity storage is not needed to reach the 20 percent goal. Andy Karsner, the DOE's assistant secretary of energy efficiency and renewable energy, said claims of wind power unreliability are false. "Wind is in fact one of our least volatile resources," he said at a press briefing.
Wind energy provides just 1 percent of U.S. electricity today, compared with about 7 percent in Germany where the government has provided steady support for the industry since the early 1990s. State laws that require utilities to purchase wind power have recently revived the U.S. industry, and the country has led the world in wind power installations over the past two years.
The U.S. industry remains dependent on a short-term federal tax credit that will expire at the end of this year unless Congress extends it. "We need to fix the production tax credit uncertainty... as part of a plan to get [20 percent by 2030]," said Daniel Kammen, director of the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory at the University of California at Berkeley.
The new study estimates that the increase in wind generation would avoid 7.6 billion cumulative tons of the principal greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide, from being emitted - the equivalent of protecting about 48 million acres (19.4 million hectares) of forest from deforestation. This would nearly eliminate the projected increase in emissions from U.S. power plants between now and 2030.
"To dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance our energy security, clean power generation at the gigawatt-scale will be necessary, and will require us to take a comprehensive approach," Karsner said in a prepared statement.
The added wind power would also avoid 4 trillion gallons of water from being consumed for electricity generation, the report estimates. Less coal-fired power results in fewer emissions of mercury and the pollutants that cause acid rain, as well.
As the price of fossil fuels continue to climb, Kammen said wind energy may end up costing less than the additional 2 percent that the report predicts. "It doesn't include the ramp up of fossil fuel prices [which rose significantly since the study's completion]...and we haven't even started talking about what the price of carbon will be," he said. "This looks like the bargain of the century."
"Although the 20 percent wind scenario sounds ambitious, the industry has actually grown faster over the past year than assumed in the study's scenario, says Worldwatch Institute president Christopher Flavin. "Wind power is going to be a huge part of the country's energy future." Worldwatch senior researcher Janet Sawin was a member of the study's steering committee and helped author a policy chapter that was later removed from the report.

New Headache for Brown as West London mobilises for Heathrow protest New research shows most London Labour MPs oppose PM?s policy Thursday, 29 May 2008
Gordon Brown faces a new headache this weekend as thousands prepare to march around Heathrow airport demanding a halt to his government?s push for a third runway.
West London residents will be joined by environmentalists at the Make A Noise Carnival on Saturday afternoon. The protesters will walk from Hatton Cross tube station then along Heathrow?s perimeter fence to Sipson ? the village set to be bulldozed if Brown?s plans for expansion go ahead. There the thousands of marchers will gather in a field to form the world?s biggest ever ?NO? ? visable to landing aircraft (and descending Prime Ministers).
Pictures and broadcast images taken from a crane above the NO will be made available ? roads close at 11am so media vehicles should be in Sipson before then if necessary.
A letter of support from the Archbishop of Canterbury will be read out, while MPs from all the main political parties are joining the marchers. Research by Greenpeace released today reveals growing dissent as most London Labour MPs who reveal their position now oppose their party?s plans for Heathrow expansion. Dissenters even include health minister Ann Keen.
The protest carnival will be addressed by MPs including John McDonnell ? whose constituency includes the airport - Richmond representative Susan Kramer and rising Tory Justine Greening. Green MEP Caroline Lucas, environmentalist George Monbiot, local council leaders and Sipson residents will also take the stage before bands entertain the carnival-goers.
Tamsin Omond, who recently scaled the roof of Parliament in protest at Heathrow expansion, is one of the organisers of Make A Noise. She said: ?Gordon Brown?s got a real fight on his hands here. People face losing their homes if he gives the green light to a third runway, and they?ll be joined on Saturday by thousands of others who are deeply concerned about increased noise levels and climate change. That?s why we?ll be using our bodies to form a NO so big it will be visable from planes circling Heathrow. The mood in West London is pretty angry right now. If the next election is close then Brown may regret taking us on.?
The Make A Noise Carnival is the last chance for Londoners to register their opposition to expansion before transport secretary Ruth Kelly formally announces the Government?s plans for Heathrow. Labour has said it supports building a third runway, and earlier this year held a ?public consultation? widely derided as a sham. Documents acquired under freedom of information legislation revealed extraordinary collusion between Brown?s administration and airport operator BAA, with the consultation process being fixed and unhelpful pollution data ?stripped out? (Sunday Times front page, March 9th 2008).
The Government and BAA want to see a third runway and sixth terminal built over the villages of Sipson and Harmondsworth, increasing the number of flights from 480,000 a year to more than 700,000. A quarter of a million Londoners face increased levels of noise, while CO2 emissions from Heathrow would rise dramatically at a time when politicians claim to be tackling global warming. Even Brown?s own environment advisors at the Sustainable Development Commission (SDC) are now calling for a halt to Heathrow expansion.

Notes:
The Make A Noise Carnival begins at Hatton Cross tube between noon and 12.45 on Saturday 31st May 2008. It will arrive at Sipson at 2.30pm. Video and stills from crane above field will be made available.
There will be no vehicle access to Sipson village after 11am. Sat trucks are recommended to park at the Renaissance Hotel nearby (Bath Road, TW6 2AQ)

Australia to help power Thailand
From Ron Corben in Bangkok
May 29, 2008 10:22pm
AUSTRALIA has indicated its readiness to supply Thailand with uranium and nuclear technology to aid the south-east Asian nation's moves towards energy diversification. Australian Ambassador Bill Paterson conveyed the offer to assist Thailand in its energy strategy and development during talks today with Thai Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej.
"The prime minister (Samak) told me that he is committed to looking at the nuclear future for Thailand, but in the interim period... he looks to Australia as a source of good high-quality steaming coal for that," Paterson said.
Paterson told the prime minister Australia was one of the world's leading suppliers of uranium and a major producer of liquefied gas.
In February this year the Thai government launched a three-year $US33 million study of nuclear power, intended to examine site location, feasibility, public acceptance and development of technical skills.
Paterson said he outlined Australia's long track record as a reliable, competitive supplier of coal to Japan, adding Thailand would look to Australia for energy supply, whether it be for coal, gas or uranium.
Thai environmental activists have waged a long campaign against the import of Australian coal for a seaside electric power plant in Maptaput on the Thai east coast. In 2006 activists protested the delivery of a shipment from Newcastle.
Thailand's main source of power is gas from neighbouring Burma. It plans to diversify energy sources over the next decade.

Workers protest WorkCover changes
Posted Thu May 29, 2008 6:48pm AEST
Dozens of angry workers have staged a protest outside South Australian Treasurer Kevin Foley's office in retaliation to the Government's proposed changes to WorkCover.
The WorkCover Bill, which has been hit with hundreds of attempted amendments, is expected to pass the Upper House next week.
The workers set up banners and shouted slogans outside Mr Foley's electoral office at Port Adelaide this afternoon.
Wayne Hanson from the Australian Workers Union says workers are not willing to sit back on the issue.
"Rann's WorkCover is Robin Hood in reverse, it takes cash from injured workers and it gives it to business," he said.
"It is our hope that the damage that is done by Rann Labor is not terminal to real labour."

Greenpeace activists stage agrofuel protest in Vienna
4 hours ago
VIENNA (AFP) ? About 25 Greenpeace activists, some dressed as orangutans, blocked an OMV petrol station in Vienna Thursday, accusing the Austrian oil and gas giant of destroying the rainforest to make agrofuel.
A few of them brandished placards that read "OMV: no rainforest in the fuel tank."
"Whoever fills up at OMV is destroying up to ten square metres of rainforest," Jurrien Westerhof, an energy expert with Greenpeace Austria, said in a statement.
Greenpeace said fuel samples taken from OMV petrol stations had been found to contain soya and palm oil from Latin America and South East Asia.
"That shows a direct link between OMV agrofuel and the clearing of rainforests to set up plantations for palm or soya oil," said Westerhof.
However OMV denied the charge and said it had invited Greenpeace to a meeting next week to discuss the "misunderstanding."
"Greenpeace has the wrong target: OMV has asked its suppliers to deliver only agrofuels produced in central Europe, that is rapeseed oil and ethanol," spokesman Thomas Huemer told AFP.
The organisation also criticised Environment Minister Josef Proell, who has called for fuel mixtures to make up 10 percent of the country's fuel by 2010.

http://features.csmonitor.com/environment/2008/05/29/is-water-becoming-%E2%80%98the-new-oil%E2%80%99/
Is water becoming ?the new oil??
Population, pollution, and climate put the squeeze on potable supplies ? and private companies smell a profit. Others ask: Should water be a human right?
Public fountains are dry in Barcelona, Spain, a city so parched there?s a ?9,000 ($13,000) fine if you?re caught watering your flowers. A tanker ship docked there this month carrying 5 million gallons of precious fresh water ? and officials are scrambling to line up more such shipments to slake public thirst.
Barcelona is not alone. Cyprus will ferry water from Greece this summer. Australian cities are buying water from that nation?s farmers and building desalination plants. Thirsty China plans to divert Himalayan water. And 18 million southern Californians are bracing for their first water-rationing in years.
Water, Dow Chemical Chairman Andrew Liveris told the World Economic Forum in February, ?is the oil of this century.? Developed nations have taken cheap, abundant fresh water largely for granted. Now global population growth, pollution, and climate change are shaping a new view of water as ?blue gold.?
Water?s hot-commodity status has snared the attention of big equipment suppliers like General Electric as well as big private water companies that buy or manage municipal supplies ? notably France-based Suez and Aqua America, the largest US-based private water company.
Global water markets, including drinking water distribution, management, waste treatment, and agriculture are a nearly $500 billion market and growing fast, says a 2007 global investment report.
But governments pushing to privatize costly to maintain public water systems are colliding with a global ?water is a human right? movement. Because water is essential for human life, its distribution is best left to more publicly accountable government authorities to distribute at prices the poorest can afford, those water warriors say.
?We?re at a transition point where fundamental decisions need to be made by societies about how this basic human need ? water ? is going to be provided,? says Christopher Kilian, clean-water program director for the Boston-based Conservation Law Foundation. ?The profit motive and basic human need [for water] are just inherently in conflict.?
Will ?peak water? displace ?peak oil? as the central resource question? Some see such a scenario rising.
?What?s different now is that it?s increasingly obvious that we?re running up against limits to new [fresh water] supplies,? says Peter Gleick, a wat???er expert and president of the Pacific In???sti??tute for Studies in Development, En??vi???ron??ment, and Sec??ur??ity, a nonpartisan think tank in Oak?land, Calif. ?It?s no long??er cheap and easy to drill another well or dam another river.?
The idea of ?peak water? is an imperfect analogy, he says. Unlike oil, water is not used up but only changes forms. The world still has the same 326 quintillion gallons, NASA estimates.
But some 97 percent of it is salty. The world?s re?maining accessi?ble fresh-water supplies are divided among industry (20 percent), agriculture (70 per??cent), and domestic use (10 percent), according to the United Nations.
Meanwhile, fresh-water consumption worldwide has more than doubled since World War II to nearly 4,000 cubic kilometers annually and set to rise another 25 percent by 2030, says a 2007 report by the Zurich-based Sustainable Asset Management (SAM) group investment firm.
Up to triple that is available for human use, so there should be plenty, the report says. But waste, climate change, and pollution have left clean water supplies running short.
?We have ignored demand for decades, just assuming supplies of water would be there,? Dr. Gleick says. ?Now we have to learn to manage water demand and ? on top of that ? deal with climate change, too.?
Population and economic growth across Asia and the rest of the developing world is a major factor driving fresh-water scarcity. The earth?s human population is predicted to rise from 6 billion to about 9 billion by 2050, the UN reports. Feeding them will mean more irrigation for crops.
Increasing attention is also being paid to the global ?virtual water? trade. It appears in food or other products that require water to produce, products that are then exported to another nation. The US may consume even more water ? virtual water ? by importing goods that require lots of water to make. At the same time, the US exports virtual water through goods it sells abroad.
As scarcity drives up the cost of fresh water, more efficient use of water will play a huge role, experts say, including:
? Superefficient drip irrigation is far more frugal than ?flood? irrigation. But water?s low cost in the US provides little incentive to build new irrigation systems.
? Aging, leaking water pipes waste billions of gallons daily. The cost to fix them could be $500 billion over the next 30 years, the federal government estimates.
? Desalination. Dozens of plants are in planning stages or under construction in the US and abroad, reports say.
? Privatization. When private for-profit companies sell at a price based on what it costs to produce water, that higher price curbs water waste and water consumption, economists say.
In the US today, about 33.5 million Americans get their drinking water from privately owned utilities that make up about 16 percent of the nation?s community water systems, according to the National Association of Water Companies, a trade association.
?While water is essential to life, and we believe everyone deserves the right of access to water, that doesn?t mean water is free or should be provided free,? says Peter Cook, executive director of the NAWC. ?Water should be priced at the cost to provide it ? and subsidized for those who can?t afford it.?
But private companies? promises of efficient, cost-effective water delivery have not always come true. Bolivia ejected giant engineering firm Bechtel in 2000, unhappy over the spiking cost of water for the city of Cochabamba. Last year Bolivia?s president publicly celebrated the departure of French water company Suez, which had held a 30-year contract to supply La Paz.
In her book, ?Blue Covenant,? Maude Barlow ? one of the leaders of the fledgling ?water justice? movement ? sees a dark future if private monopolies control access to fresh water. She sees this happening when, instead of curbing pollution and increasing conservation, governments throw up their hands and sell public water companies to the private sector or contract with private desalination companies.
?Water is a public resource and a human right that should be available to all,? she says. ?All these companies are doing is recycling dirty water, selling it back to utilities and us at a huge price. But they haven?t been as successful as they want to be. People are concerned about their drinking water and they?ve met resistance.? Private-water industry officials say those pushing to make water a ?human right? are ideologues struggling to preserve inefficient public water authorities that sell water below the cost to produce it and so cheaply it is wasted ? doing little to extend service to the poor.
?There are three basic things in life: food, water, and air,? says Paul Marin, who three years ago led a successful door-to-door campaign to keep the town council of Emmaus, Pa., from selling its local water company. ?In this country, we have privatized our food. Now there?s a lot of interest in water on Wall Street?. But I can tell you it?s putting the fox in charge of the henhouse to privatize water. It?s a mistake.? Water and war: Will scarcity lead to conflict?
Cherrapunjee, a town in eastern India, once held bragging rights as the ?wettest place on earth,? and still gets nearly 40 feet of rain a year. Ironically, officials recently brought in Israeli water-management experts to help manage and retain water that today sluices off the area?s deforested landscape so that the area can get by in months when no rain falls.
?Global warming isn?t going to change the amount of water, but some places used to getting it won?t, and others that don?t, will get more,? says Dan Nees, a water-trading analyst with the World Resources Institute. ?Water scarcity may be one of the most underappreciated global political and environmental challenges of our time.? Water woes could have an impact on global peace and stability.
In January, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon cited a report by International Alert, a self-described peacebuilding organization based in London. The report identified 46 countries with a combined population of 2.7 billion people where contention over water has created ?a high risk of violent conflict? by 2025.
In the developing world ? particularly in China, India, and other parts of Asia ? rising economic success means a rising demand for clean water and an increased potential for conflict. China is one of the world?s fastest-growing nations, but its lakes, rivers, and groundwater are badly polluted because of the widespread dumping of industrial wastes. Tibet has huge fresh water reserves.
While news reports have generally cited Tibetans? concerns over exploitation of their natural resources by China, little has been reported about China?s keen interest in Tibet?s Himalayan water supplies, locked up in rapidly melting glaciers.
?It?s clear that one of the key reasons that China is interested in Tibet is its water,? Dr. Gleick says. ?They don?t want to risk any loss of control over these water resources.?
The Times (London) reported in 2006 that China is proceeding with plans for nearly 200 miles of canals to divert water from the Himalayan plateau to China?s parched Yellow River. China?s water plans are a major problem for the Dalai Lama?s government in exile, says a report released this month by Circle of Blue, a branch of the Pacific Institute, a nonpartisan think tank.
Himalayan water is particularly sensitive because it supplies the rivers that bring water to more than half a dozen Asian countries. Plans to divert water could cause intense debate.
?Once this issue of water resources comes up,? wrote Elizabeth Economy, director of Asia Studies at the Council on Foreign Affairs, to Circle of Blue researchers in a report earlier this month, ?and it seems inevitable at this point that it will ? it also raises emerging conflicts with India and Southeast Asia.?
Tibet is not the only water-rich country wary of a water-poor neighbor. Canada, which has immense fresh-water resources, is wary of its water-thirsty superpower neighbor to the south, observers say. With Lake Mead low in the US Southwest, and now Florida and Georgia squabbling over water, the US could certainly use a sip (or gulp) of Canada?s supplies. (Canada has 20 percent of the world?s fresh water.)
But don?t look for a water pipeline from Canada?s northern reaches to the US southwest anytime soon. Water raises national fervor in Canada, and Canadians are reluctant to share their birthright with a United States that has mismanaged ? in Canada?s eyes ? its own supplies. Indeed, the prospect of losing control of its water under free-trade or other agreements is something Canadians seem to worry about constantly.
A year ago, Canada?s House of Commons voted 134 to 108 in favor of a motion to recommend that its federal government ?begin talks with its American and Mexican counterparts to exclude water from the scope of NAFTA.?

Presumed Colombian paramilitaries kidnap 3 in Ecuador
Print article     Print article Refer this article     Refer to a friend ? AP 2008-05-29 18:51:23 -
QUITO, Ecuador (AP) - Ecuadorean officials say an armed group apparently crossed the border from Colombia and kidnapped three men. The Ministry of Defense said Thursday that the attack in the eastern jungle may be the work of right-wing Colombian paramilitaries. They call it a violation of Ecuador's sovereignty. Witnesses say about 30 people in military uniforms accused the kidnapped men of cooperating with leftist Colombian rebels and then took them back across the border.
It is unclear if the victims are Colombian or Ecuadorean. Ecuador's government cut off relations with Colombia after that country's soldiers raided a rebel camp in Ecuador on March 1.

Neptune Orient, Shipping Lines Gain on Oil, Economy (Update1)
By Wendy Leung
May 29 (Bloomberg) -- Neptune Orient Lines Ltd., Southeast Asia's largest container-shipping company, gained the most in three weeks in Singapore trading as falling oil prices and a rise in U.S. durable goods orders spurred optimism about earnings.
The shipping line climbed 5.4 percent to S$3.90 at the close. China Cosco Holdings Co., China's biggest container line and the operator of the world's largest fleet of dry-bulk ships, rose 1.9 percent to HK$22.00 in Hong Kong.
U.S. orders for goods made to last several years, excluding transportation equipment, unexpectedly rose in April, increasing optimism about continued demand for imports and container shipments in the world's biggest economy. Marine fuel prices also fell for the third day in a row in Singapore yesterday, in line with easing oil prices, reducing costs for shipping companies.
``Shipping lines' shares are always affected by oil prices,'' said Edward Wong, a Quam Ltd. analyst in Hong Kong. ``Oil has been rising crazily.''
Fuel is likely to account for about 30 percent of Asian container-shipping lines' operating costs this year, Wong said. Crude oil prices yesterday dropped to as low as $125.96 in New York amid concerns prices around $130 a barrel may hurt demand from the U.S. and Asia.
U.S. durable goods orders rose 2.5 percent in April, the most since July, the Commerce Department said yesterday. Economists had estimated a 0.5 percent decline.
Pacific Basin Shipping Ltd., Hong Kong's largest operator of iron ore and coal vessels, climbed 3.1 percent to HK$12.60 in the city. Korea Line Corp., South Korea's second-biggest bulk- shipping line, rose 5.5 percent to 202,500 won in Seoul.
``The outlook for dry-bulk ships is pretty good this year on the strong demand from China and India,'' said Stella Kei, an analyst at UOB Kay Hian Ltd. Global demand for iron ore will increase 10 percent in 2008, from a year earlier, Kei said.

Dutch truckers honk horns in fuel price protest
5:23 a.m. May 29, 2008
THE HAGUE ? Dutch truckers called on motorists on Thursday to honk their horns to push for lower fuel taxes in the latest protest at soaring oil prices.
Organisations representing logistic companies parked a huge truck outside parliament and handed over a petition to politicians calling on the government to reverse a diesel tax hike that is due to take effect on July 1.
Advertisement 'What we see is enormous dissatisfaction about the rising prices of fuel,' Dick van den Broek Humphreij, head of the EVO group that represents transport companies, told Reuters outside parliament after delivering the petition.
Truckers displayed illuminated road signs around the country urging motorists to honk their horns in solidarity.
Separately, a group has collected more than 112,000 signatures online demanding the reversal of a tax that has been levied on fuel since a budget crisis in 1991.
'The Netherlands has had enough. Now is the time for action,' the group says, noting that the country has Europe's biggest gas reserves but does not benefit in terms of cheaper gas, unlike oil producer Venezuela which offers cheap fuel.
'We complain a lot but we do nothing. We should follow the example of the English truckers. And when the taxes rise in France, motorists block the streets. Then the politicians listen,' organiser Robert Andringa told De Telegraaf daily.
Bulgarian truck drivers rallied on Wednesday, following the lead of British and French truckers and French fishermen in a wave of demonstrations and blockades by groups which say fuel costs threaten their livelihoods.
Hundreds of protesting British truck drivers caused road chaos in London on Tuesday and French President Nicolas Sarkozy called on Tuesday for a European Union cap on fuel sales tax.
EU Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Joaquin Almunia said on Wednesday euro zone finance ministers would not back such tax changes.

Sinopec to halt oil products exports, raise output
(China Daily) Updated: 2008-05-30 08:43

China's largest refiner Sinopec said it would increase its oil processing and halt oil products exports in the third quarter to ensure domestic supply.
"Sinopec will raise production, halt exports and adjust product structure to ensure domestic supply, especially for the reconstruction after the earthquake, the summer harvest and the Olympic Games," said Sinopec President Wang Tianpu.
Disaster relief is a top priority for Sinopec, according to the company. It will work in tandem with the government to keep the prices of oil products in quake-hit regions stable.
The company had made emergency deliveries of gasoline and diesel to earthquake-hit regions. It also ordered several of its refineries to raise output in response to the disaster.
China's largest oil company PetroChina also said it would increase its refined oil production to ensure supply for reconstruction and the summer harvest.
PetroChina has allocated 100,000 tons of refined oil in emergency supplies to Sichuan after the earthquake. By May 27, oil storage in Sichuan reached 252,000 tons, ensuring 16 days of supplies, the company said in a statement.
PetroChina will increase its oil supply to Sichuan, Chongqing, Shaanxi and Inner Mongolia by 20 percent for the summer harvest, the statement said.
Facing high crude prices in the international market, the government's control on domestic refined oil prices has caused big losses for the country's oil refiners. In the first quarter, Sinopec saw its net profit plunge 65.78 percent to 6.7 billion yuan .
This, happened even after the company got 12.3 billion yuan in government subsidies in March, of which 7.4 billion yuan was counted as first-quarter income.
PetroChina said its first-quarter profit fell 31.5 percent as refining losses and windfall taxes cut its earnings from record crude prices. Net income dropped to 28.9 billion yuan from 42.1 billion yuan a year earlier.
China exported 4.84 million tons of refined oil products in the first four months of this year, a decrease of 7.8 percent from a year earlier. In April, exports of refined oil products stood at 1.23 million tons, according to Customs figures.

playing it down for PR purposes? CNOOC relies on existing business
By Ying Lou 2008-5-30  CNOOC Ltd, China's biggest offshore oil producer, said yesterday that overseas acquisitions were not the main driver of future growth.

The company will rely on existing businesses as its growth engine while overseas asset purchases and takeovers are just one aspect of the overall strategy, Chairman Fu Chengyu said after the annual general meeting in Hong Kong.

In 2005, CNOOC's US$18.5-billion bid for Unocal Corp failed after it was opposed by politicians in the United States.

The oil producer is in talks with Talisman Energy for an asset purchase or a takeover, the South China Morning Post reported on Monday.

Talisman plans to raise as much as US$2 billion from the sale of assets by the end of next year, the report said. The sales will focus on oil and gas blocks in the North Sea, Australia and Denmark.

China National Offshore Oil Corp, parent of Hong Kong-listed CNOOC, last month signed an agreement to import 2 million metric tons of liquefied natural gas a year from Qatar under a 25-year contract, Fu said. The fuel will meet the needs of the eastern province of Zhejiang and other coastal areas, he said.

CNOOC will drill six deepwater wells in the second half of this year, Fu said. In 2006, the company and partner Husky Energy discovered a gas field in China's Pearl River Delta that may prove to be China's largest offshore deposit, Bloomberg News said.

Kazakhstan ratifies oil transit treaty with Azerbaijan
21:19 | 29 / ? 05 / 2008 Print version

http://en.rian.ru/world/20080529/108825271.html


ASTANA, May 29 (RIA Novosti) - Kazakhstan has ratified a treaty with Azerbaijan allowing Kazakh crude to be pumped through a pipeline linking Azerbaijan's Caspian coast to Turkey's Mediterranean coast, the presidential administration said.
Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev signed a law on Thursday ratifying the treaty on the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline.
The treaty provides for the creation of a new system to carry Kazakh oil across the Caspian Sea to Azerbaijan, to be put through the BTC pipeline.
The 1,700-kilometer (1,000-mile) pipeline, e xpected to start operating at full export capacity of 1.6 million bbl/d in 2013 , pumps crude from Azerbaijan's oil fields off the Caspian coast via Georgia to Turkey, and on to Western markets.
May 28 was the second anniversary of the pipeline's first oil reaching Turkey's Mediterranean port of Ceyhan, and the BTC is now transporting 1 million barrels per day.
Under the project, a 730-km section is to be built on Kazakh territory from Eskene to Kuryk and from Kuryk to Baku (Azerbaijan's capital) across the Caspian Sea, with a link to the BTC system.
Russia has claimed that the pipeline is aimed at weakening Moscow's influence in the region, regarding it as an 'anti-Russian' project.
The pipeline's shareholders are BP (30.1%), Azerbaijan BTC (25%), Chevron (8.9%), Statoil (8.71%), TPAO (6.53%), ENI (5,00%), Total (5%), Itochu (3,4%), INPEX (2,5%), ConocoPhillips (2,5%) and Hess (2,36%). -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...

Japan's core CPI up 0.9% in April as energy, grain prices soar

TOKYO, May 30 KYODO      Japan's key consumer price index rose 0.9 percent in April from a year earlier for the seventh consecutive month of increase, on rising energy and grain prices, the government said Friday.      The core nationwide CPI, which excludes volatile fresh food prices, stood at 100.8 against the base of 100 for 2005, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications said in a preliminary report. The headline reading was almost in line with the forecast of 1.0 percent growth in a Kyodo News survey. http://home.kyodo.co.jp/modules/fstStory/index.php?storyid=381257 -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...

Govt studies 4-day work week proposal
http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/storypage.aspx?StoryId=120051
Malaca?ang on Friday said it is studying a proposal to implement a four-day work week in government offices to save on fuel and electricity.
Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita said the four-day work week proposal needs careful study to ensure that it will not negatively affect the economy. ?
Marikina Rep. Marcelino Teodoro and Bulacan Rep. Victoria Sy-Alvarado earlier said the four-day work week could result in big savings in power and fuel costs for government offices once it is implemented. ?
Teodoro said the proposal does not cover city and municipal halls that carry out daily transactions. He also proposed earlier opening and closing times for government, business and commercial establishments to save on electricity. -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...

Bus stand
http://www.bangkokpost.com/topstories/topstories.php?id=127894


Tens of thousands of commuters were left stranded at bus stops throughtout Bangkok while trying to get to work Thursday morning, as private operators took 10,000 buses off the streets to back demands for a fare hike.
C iting expensive prices of fuel, the owners of 63 authorised bus lines which supplement the regular government services went on strike on Thursday morning as threatened.

They drove more than 100 vehicles to the transport ministry for an afternoon protest to insist on higher fares or better subsidies to help pay for higher fuel costs.

Operators said that in lieu of higher fares, they would call on the government to waive concession fees they pay to the government for operating their routes.

The government announced it will try to work with the bus operators to help them out of the energy crisis.

The initial plan is to provide Bangkok city buses with cheap fuel at special fuelling stations, said deputy permanent secretary to the Transport Ministry Piyapan Champasut.

Officials were to hold a press conference to announce an emergency six-month package of help.

Ministers meanwhile said they would hold talks with board members of the Bangkok Metro Transit Agency on a request by private operators to waive concession fees to the government.

C hatchai Chaiwiset, President of the private bus operators' association, said he didn?t expect so many buses to go on strike. If negotiations cannot be reached with the government by today, he threatened to file a petition calling on Transport Minister Santi Promphat to resign.

Private bus strike wins concessions
AMORNRAT MAHITTHIROOK

http://www.bangkokpost.com/News/30May2008_news04.php
Private bus operators yesterday ended their one-day strike after the government agreed to cut the price of diesel for them and suspend the daily fee they pay the city's bus license r, the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA).


The operators left thousands of buses idle in Bangkok yesterday to pressure the government to help them cope with the rising price of diesel.

They also parked more than 200 buses on Ratchadamnoen Nok avenue, from Jor Por Ror junction to Phan Fa bridge, from early yesterday morning until the evening in response to the Central Administrative Court's temporary injunction against a fare rise for Bangkok buses on Tuesday.

The private bus operators demanded government subsidies for diesel above 27.34 baht a litre, the price used to calculate fares, an end to daily fees paid to the state-run BMTA, the write-off of debts they owe the BMTA from March 2005 to June last year, and a 50% share of the 6,000 new NGV powered buses the BMTA plans to put on the roads soon.

Deputy Transport Minister Songsak Thongsri negotiated with representatives of the private bus operators.

He promised to ask oil companies through the Energy Ministry to cut their refining margin by three baht a litre, especially for city bus operators.

He expected an answer by 11am today.

He also agreed the BMTA would suspend the collection of daily fees from private operators from yesterday.

The fees stand at 35 baht per ordinary bus and 60 baht per air-conditioned bus. However, he ruled out the private operators' demands for the use of 3,000 new buses and the debt write-off.

BMTA director Pinet Puapatanakul said his agency received combined daily fees of 140,000 baht from private operators.

The money was spent on the daily supervision of their services, but it was now willing to bear this cost itself.

Piyaphan Champasut, transport deputy permanent secretary, said transport authorities had filed a request with oil refineries for a margin reduction for the bus operators at least six months ago.

He was confident the oil refiners would give a positive reply. The reduction should cover the 1.50 baht fare increment the operators missed, Mr Piyaphan said. -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...

Turkmenistan to supply TAPI at market price-report http://www.aaj.tv/news/Business/105338_detail.html
ASHGABAT ( 2008-05-30 15:15:01 ) : Turkmenistan said on Friday it would charge Afghanistan, Pakistan and India market prices for natural gas that would go through a planned pipeline across the four countries, state media reported on Friday.
The idea of building the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan- Pakistan-India (TAPI) pipeline has been little more than a dream for years because of the turmoil in Afghanistan, but the countries are now determined to complete the project.
Representatives of the four states and the Asian Development Bank that promotes the project gathered in Turkmen capital Ashgabat on Friday to discuss the details of the plan.
"Noting that Turkmen gas is in high demand... the participants of the session have agreed that the price of the fuel must be set in accordance with the global energy market conditions," state-owned Turkmen Khabarlary news agency reported.
The four countries have said earlier construction work on the pipeline could start as early as 2010.
The 1,680-km TAPI pipeline would supply 3.2 billion cubic feet per day (90 MMSCMD) and gas flows are expected from 2015. -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...

MANILA: With energy prices continuing to rise, the Philippines is considering implementing a four-day week for all government employees, officials said Friday.
Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita told journalists that the idea was being taken seriously by President Gloria Arroyo's government as a way of reducing energy costs.
"But before we make any decision either way the proposal needs careful study to ensure that it will not negatively affect the economy," he said.
"It does not follow that when we do not go to work in a day, our economy will stop. It could very well mean that we save gasoline and diesel," he added.
A number of congressmen have been pushing the government to consider the proposal for the large bureaucracy.
Some 2.7 million out of the Philippines' 33.7 million-strong labour force work for the government or state corporations, according to the National Statistics Office.
Among other related proposals, Ermita said switching the government's vehicle fleet to diesel-fueled vehicles from gasoline-fed would save 1.44 billion pesos (about 33 million dollars) a year in fuel costs.
A government task force formed by Arroyo to craft an action plan to mitigate high fuel costs would discuss specific proposals at their next meeting on Monday, he added. - AFP/ac

By Catherine Belton in Moscow

A board member of BP?s Russian oil venture, TNK-BP, has resigned amid a deepening standoff for control for the company after its Russian billionaire shareholders demanded the removal of the venture?s BP-backed chief executive.
Jean-Luc Vermeulen, a former senior executive at French oil group Total, resigned on Thursday evening, citing the deepening row, people familiar with the situation said on Friday. EDITOR?S CHOICE Lex: BP in Russia - May-28 TNK-BP Russian investors demand chief?s removal - May-30 TNK-BP fighting erupts in public - May-28 TNK-BP?s chief admits to discord - May-26 TNK-BP under renewed Gazprom pressure - Apr-23 Quest for tomorrow?s fuel - Apr-23
?Discussions I had tonight with several advisors led me to the conclusion that I was wrong in believing I could still help in the settlement of the dispute between [the Russian shareholders] and BP,? one person cited Mr Vermeulen as saying in a letter to other board members.
His resignation came after BP rejected the Russian shareholders? demand to remove Robert Dudley, TNK-BP chief executive, during informal talks in Cyprus on Thursday between Tony Hayward, BP?s chief executive, and TNK-BP?s Russian shareholders, Mikhail Fridman, Viktor Vekselberg and Len Blavatnik.
The demand scuppered a planned board meeting and the informal talks, throwing into further doubt the future of BP?s investment in TNK-BP, which accounts for a quarter of the UK energy group's production and 13 per cent of its profits.
BP had sought to reconcile differences as tension mounts over control of the company ahead of an expected sale by TNK-BP's Russian shareholders of their 50 per cent stake to a state-controlled energy company, which could be either Rosneft or Gazprom. A potential broader tie-up between BP and Gazprom is also being considered.
The Russian shareholders, who form the Alfa-Access-Renova consortium, issued a statement late on Thursday saying they did not attend the board meeting as ?there was no consensus regarding the resignation of Mr Dudley.?
?AAR has advised BP of its position that the CEO of TNK-BP, Robert Dudley, should resign from his position due to AAR?s belief that Dudley is managing the company in the interest of only one shareholder, namely BP,? the statement said.
BP reiterated its backing for Mr Dudley, who joined BP from Amoco after the two companies merged and has headed TNK-BP since it was founded in 2003.
The friction between the two groups of shareholders became public this week as the two sides traded public barbs about investment strategy and the role of foreign specialists.
Several people familiar with the situation think the stand-off was sparked by one Russian shareholder seeking to ensure he was in the driving seat for negotiations on a TNK-BP stake sale.
"This is all about control and money," one of the people said. The person said the sale was no longer "a question of if, but what price and when."
BP's role in TNK-BP has come under pressure after its Moscow offices were raided twice in two months, while foreign specialists from BP have been barred from working at the company.
A Siberian court issued a temporary injunction against them appearing for work after a minority shareholder filed suit. The executives of Tetlis, the minority shareholder, were previously employed by Mr Fridman's Alfa Group, which has denied any links with the lawsuit and says it is not involved in the dispute at TNK-BP.
The role of TNK-BP senior managers from BP, including Mr Dudley, could also be in jeopardy after a Russian senior manager filed for fewer work permits.
In the Vedomosti newspaper this week, Mr Dudley accused the manager of an erroneous filing and acting in the interests of one Russian shareholder. He did not name the shareholder or manager.
Roland Nash, chief strategist at Moscow's Renaissance Capital investment bank, said: "There is a huge amount of value at stake if [Mr Fridman's] Alfa Group can position itself as a power broker between the state and BP."

Discussion Paper Calls for Modification of Alterative Motor Fuels Act to Better Support Energy and Environmental Goals http://www.greencarcongress.com/2008/05/discussion-pape.html#more 30 May 2008 Collantes1 Collantes proposes a logic sequence to assess whether to keep, eliminate, or revise the AMFA provisions. Click to enlarge.
The two decade-old Alternative Motor Fuels Act?the statue that currently provides automakers with incentives under the CAFE program to manufacture Flex Fuel Vehicles?needs to be overhauled or scrapped to better account for issues related to the consumer acceptance of biofuel-capable vehicles and to the geographical correlation between biofuel supply and vehicle deployment; and to enhance energy security and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector, according to a new discussion paper out of Harvard University.
The paper, Biofuels and the Corporate Average Fuel Economy Program: The Statute, Policy Issues, and Alternatives, was written by Gustavo Collantes at the Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
The Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) program has served as the US? principal policy mechanism for the reduction of oil consumption in the transportation sector since 1975. Other policy strategies, including demand reduction, fuel switching and vehicle technology mandates, have either had limited success or suffered from limited commitment.
In 1988, Congress passed the Alternative Motor Fuel Act (AMFA) with the intent of encouraging the development and widespread use of methanol, ethanol, and natural gas as transportation fuels by consumers and the production of vehicles powered by those alternative fuels.
(The underlying motivation, Collantes points out even then was to enhance long-term national energy security through reductions in oil importation and, even if secondarily, to reduce emissions of heat-trapping gases from motor vehicles.)
Specifically, Congress, through AMFA, endeavored to induce manufacturers to deploy vehicles capable of operating on alternative fuels by providing for special treatment of such vehicles under the CAFE program....Reflecting Congress?s awareness of the lower per-gallon mileage that alternative fuels generally yield relative to gasoline, Section 32905 establishes that, for the purpose of measuring fuel economy, one gallon of alternative fuel is equivalent of 0.15 gallons of petroleum fuel. Thus, the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is to estimate the fuel economy of a vehicle running on alternative fuel by dividing the actual miles per gallon by 0.15. This way, not only would CAFE not hinder the commercialization of alternative-fuel vehicles, but also deploying such vehicles would help manufacturers meet their CAFE requirements.
The Energy Independence and Security Act 2007 (EISA) with its new CAFE program effectively extended the applicability of the AMFA provisions. Under the AMFA provisions of EISA 2007, a given manufacturer can use alternative fuel-capable vehicles to increase its average fuel economy for a particular model year up to a maximum of 1.2 miles per gallon for each of model years 1993 through 2014. The fuel economy credits will be phased out gradually starting in 2015 and ending in 2019.
While noting that AMFA has been relatively successful in inducing manufacturers into deploying flex-fuel vehicles, Collantes also points out that the original expectation of Congress was that once a reasonable supply of such alternative fuel vehicles developed, a demand for alternative fuels would ensue.
The latter effect was observed to a very limited extent. Therefore, all in all, the AMFA amendments cannot be considered a success. More importantly, as it will be discussed in this section, they cannot be expected to be any more successful than they have so far been, if they maintain their current structure.
Though well-intentioned and pioneering, AMFA took a unidimensional approach to solve a multidimensional problem. AMFA could have been more successful had the chicken-and-egg problem actually been the main obstacle to the market diffusion of alternative fuels. The main obstacles have been, however:
1.
The relatively low value proposition that flex-fuel vehicles running on ethanol blends could offer to consumers, vis-?-vis the mainstream vehicle-fuel system; 2.
The lack of a policy mechanism to internalize the external costs of gasoline relative to alternative fuels.
...Starting from an incomplete understanding of the relevant mechanisms of technology innovation, AMFA provided incentives for the vehicle manufacturer, but ignored the consumer and the fuel provider.
Collantes suggests that policies to effectively address transportation energy problems ought to be systemic?more effective solutions can be expected if the fuel and vehicle sides of the equation are not only considered separately but also in coordination. Among the potential approaches he suggests are schemes that relate the fuel-economy credits granted to flex-fuel vehicles to the proportion of fuel dispensing stations that offer high ethanol blends in the state.
Ultimately, however, he says that the AMFA provisions should be revised to reduce the incentives for automakers to use them merely as a mechanism to meet their average fuel economy requirements.
Disabling the compensating mechanism altogether would leave automakers with little incentive to keep producing flex-fuel vehicles. Leiby and Rubin (2000) estimate that, without fuel-economy incentives, production of FFV would decline by about 50%. At the same time, leaving the mechanism intact does not correct for the perverse effect of inducing lower average fuel economy.
Possible ways put of this dilemma include:
*
Prescribing a minimum gasoline fuel economy level for every flex-fuel vehicle model; *
Requiring that flex-fuel vehicles be more optimized to operate on the alternative fuel, so as to close the gap in per-gallon mileage when the vehicle runs on gasoline and on a high ethanol blend; *
Granting AMFA fuel economy credits proportionally to the accessibility of the corresponding alternative fuel in the regions where the vehicles are sold; *
Complementing AMFA with a set of incentive mechanisms that send the right signals to industry. Collantes suggests a demand-based incentive scheme (DBIS) in which credits are calculated on an estimate of demand for E85, rather than on the supply of vehicles. Under such an accounting, automakers would be rewarded as FFV owners do most of their driving on E85. Conversely, automakers would be rewarded less than under the current incentive scheme as FFV owners do most of their driving on gasoline.
Under such a scheme, Collantes says, manufacturers would have incentives to induce consumer demand for E85 by improving vehicle performance on E85, deploying more flex-fuel vehicles in areas with more established refueling infrastructure, educating consumers on the benefits of using E85, and other strategies.
Deployment decisions would be based on their expectations on actual E85 demand, rather than as a mere strategy to meet their CAFE requirements.
Looking forward, it may be useful to think of the AMFA provisions in the context of the CAFE program as a whole. With the current political drive to address the problem of global climate change, there is a temptation to use CAFE as a climate policy tool. Meanwhile, federal standards on vehicle emissions of carbon dioxide are pending after a Supreme Court ruling in April, 2007. Given the obvious overlap between a fuel-economy program and a CO2-emission program, it is entirely conceivable for CAFE to be replaced with a CO2-oriented program. Such approach could provide incentives for biofuels more naturally than AMFA currently does.

*EU hopes for Community patent under French Presidency  *
Published: Friday 30 May 2008
*Talks on setting up a European patent system made good progress at the meeting of EU industry ministers yesterday (29 May), but sensitive translation arrangements remain the main obstacle, the Slovenian EU Presidency said after the meeting.*
*Although work at technical level has not been completed yet, several proposals are on the table now, Slovenian Economy Minister Andrej Vijzak said. *
*"If there is enough political will, I am confident of having a solution soon, maybe even under the French Presidency," Vijzak stated. *
*The main stumbling block in the negotiations on a Community patent and a related litigation system, which have been going on for over a decade now, is the issue of translation arrangements.*
The Slovenian Presidency has proposed two options. One foresees a 'flexible patent', which would allow the owner to decide in which country the claim would be protected, while the second option calls for translation into all official EU languages by an automated computer system. The latter is the one favoured by a majority of member states.
The main difference between the options is that that in the latter, translation had no legal status, contrary to the first one.
Regarding the Community patent, the Presidency particularly highlighted the cost aspect, saying that a cost-effective patent system had particular benefits to SMEs.
Joachim Rohwedder, vice-president of VDMA, the largest engineering association of the European capital goods industry, backed this view, saying that high costs were the main reason SMEs are refraining from registering patent rights.
"Today, patent registration in Europe is more costly than in the US and Japan, with translation requirements are a particular burden," Rohwedder stated, calling for a Community Patent with a cost-effective language regime.
Internal Market Commissioner Charlie McCreevy lauded the Slovenian presidency for putting in "extraordinary efforts in advancing this issue".
In parallel to the patent talks, ministers also took note of the progress of the 'Better Regulation' initiative (see EurActiv Links Dossier < http://www.euractiv.com/en/opinion/better-regulation/article-117503>), agreeing that further cutting red tape was vital to Europe's competitiveness.
In 2007, the bloc had agreed to cut the administrative burden by 25% by 2012.
Industry Commissioner G?nter Verheugen said that the Commission was on track to complete the screening of EU legislation and present another package of proposals for its simplification by the end of the year.
The Czech delegation also presented a proposal calling for even more substantial steps. Initiated together with the UK, it also attracted the backing of Denmark, Estonia, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden, with Lithuania and Ireland expected to support it.
The Slovenian Public Administration Minister Gregor Virant called this declaration "interesting and useful", but stressed that it was not a common EU project and the focus should be on the bloc's initial better regulation initiative.
The ministers also agreed to create conditions for reducing the fragmentation of the European venture capital market, which should help overcome the lack of equity and investment capital for financing SMEs.

30 May 2008 Zagreb _ *Hungary**?s MOL may increase its stake in Croatia?s oil monopoly INA in a move worrying Croats over who will control petrol prices. *
*According to Croatia news portal Javno.hr, Hungarian oil company MOL could become the owner of a 44 percent stake in INA.*
Local media report negotiations have intensified between the Croatian Cabinet and MOL on the sale of 14 percent of INA?s shares to MOL.
This would raise MOL?s stake in INA from the current 30.84 percent to 44.84 percent.
In return, the Cabinet is seeking an equal share in the Hungarian company. However, even if they get it, Croatia would only have one percent ownership of MOL, whilst MOL would have more than 40 percent ownership of INA.
This is worrying Croats who fear MOL could easily dictate petrol prices on the Croatian market.
?If such a case would arise, we would definitely sit and talk about it. If we sign such a deal, we will define the strict rules of the game,? a government source told javno.hr.
Previously prices have been largely controlled by Croatia?s government eager to counter the effect of spiraling global crude prices and inflation.
The government has capped the prices of gas and electricity for companies and households until July 1, and intervened to slow the increase of petrol product prices.
Until this year, the government managed to keep the price of the most widely used petrol, Eurosuper 95, at below 8 kuna (?1.10) per litre, but has allowed several price hikes this year.
Despite earlier pledges to liberalise energy prices, on May 14 Prime Minister Ivo Sanader said the government would continue to seek ways to keep energy prices under control and urged INA and other suppliers to review their price policy.
INA is the main petrol retailer in Croatia, with a market share of about 50 percent, and is also active in neighbouring Bosnia.
The company argues that semi-regulated prices for gas and petrol products in the Croatian market have dented its profitability.

*Poland** blocks EU research institute deal*
30.05.2008 - 07:04 CET | By Renata Goldirova *The EU has failed to agree where to place the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), the EU's flagship innovation and education project, due to a Polish veto. But Hungary's capital Budapest looks certain to win the seat when the bloc returns to the issue in June.*
EU ministers in charge of competitiveness discussed the issue over dinner on Thursday evening (29 May), with negotiations dragging on into the early hours of Friday morning.
Five applicants are keen to host the administrative headquarters of the institute - Hungary's capital, Budapest, Germany's Jena, the Polish city of Wroclaw, Spain's Sant Cugat del Valles, while Slovak capital Bratislava has joined forces with Austria's Vienna in launching a cross-border bid.
The ministers are expected to revisit the topic on the eve of the EU leaders summit in June. The Slovene EU presidency has said two criteria should be respected - the winner should be a "new" member state and not already have an EU agency.
Based on these two requirements, only Budapest has a real chance of winning the seat. Poland already houses Frontex, the EU agency responsible for the security of the bloc's external borders.
According to one diplomat, speaking to Reuters news agency, 26 out of the 27-nation bloc backed Hungary's bid, but the Polish delegation insisted that it had no mandate to approve a final deal.
The EIT is meant to bridge the innovation gap between the EU and its major rivals, the US and Japan.
In practice, it should result in a network of universities, research centres and companies with the aim of transforming education and research - as well as attracting the best young brains from within and beyond Europe.
Member states have a long history of squabbling over where to house EU agencies and bodies which are a source of prestige for the host country as well as providing funds and jobs.
There were similar squabbles over where to house the EU border agency before it went to Poland and prior to that, a spectacular dispute between Finland and Italy over the food safety agency.
That agency eventually found a home in Italy after Silvio Berlusconi, the prime minister, famously declared that the Finns "don't even know what prosciutto is."

  Natural gas output up 1.4% year-on-year in Russia in Jan-Apr
MOSCOW, May 30 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's natural gas output reached 234.3 billion cubic meters in the first four months of 2008, up 1.4% against the same period of last year, the Economics Ministry said on Friday.
State-controlled gas monopoly Gazprom produced 199.1 billion cubic meters in the reporting period, up 1.7% year-on-year. Oil-producing companies and independent gas producers produced 35.2 billion cubic meters of natural gas.
According to preliminary estimates, Russian consumers received 165.2 billion cubic meters of gas in the first four months of 2008.
The country exported 76.7 billion cubic meters of natural gas in January-April 2008. Gas exports to countries outside the post-Soviet CIS totaled 62.3 billion cubic meters, up 35% year-on-year. Exports to other CIS countries reached 14.4 billion cubic meters, down 11.9%, due to a reduction in supplies to Ukraine.
According to government forecasts, Russia's gas output will rise 3% in 2008 year-on-year to 673 billion cubic metric meters.
The state statistics service Rosstat said natural gas output dropped 0.8% in 2007 year-on-year, to 651 billion cubic meters.

  Russian TNK-BP shareholders demand CEO steps down
MOSCOW, May 30 (RIA Novosti) - Russian co-owners of the joint oil venture TNK-BP, are demanding that the American president and CEO, Robert Dudley, steps down accusing him of putting the interests of BP first.
Founded in 2003, the Russian-British venture TNK-BP, Russia's third-largest oil producer, is jointly owned by BP and AAR. The consortium, representing Russian investors' Alfa Group, Access Industries and Renova (AAR), holds 50% in the energy company.
"CEO Robert Dudley should resign as in AAR's opinion, Robert Dudley is managing the company in the interests of only one shareholder, namely BP," an AAR statement said.
The Russian shareholders boycotted a board meeting in Cyprus on Thursday, after BP backed Dudley's position at TNK-BP. The consortium stressed that the shareholder disagreement would not affect company operations.
The investors were also unhappy over comments made by Dudley in an interview with Russia's business daily Vedomosti on Monday, which they called "deeply incorrect" and said the issue should not move into the public domain.
In the interview, Dudley discussed disagreements over Russian shareholders' plans for international expansion, and BP's belief that TNK-BP should focus on Russia. Dudley said the company's aim was to keep oil production as high as possible, and any change in management could lead to a production drop.
Russian shareholders in TNK-BP want to expand into Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Venezuela, where TNK-BP has a competitive advantage. BP has resisted the idea, as well as plans to take part in high-risk projects in countries including Iraq, Uganda, Syria and Libya.
Earlier this week business daily Kommersant said, the Russian shareholders were seeking to replace Dudley with Russian tycoon and TNK-BP's executive director Viktor Vekselberg.
The Russian-British oil venture has come under intense pressure from the Russian authorities this year. In March the Federal Security Service raided the company's headquarters and the Moscow office of BP, and carried out new searches at BP last week. In March a TNK-BP employee was arrested on suspicion of industrial espionage.
Analysts believe that the ongoing dispute between Russian and British shareholders could lead to the company being bought up by a Russian state giant, most likely Gazprom but possibly Rosneft.

  Europe fuel protests spread wider
*Fuel protests triggered by rising oil prices have spread to more countries across Europe, with thousands of fishermen on strike.*
Union leaders said Portugal's entire coastal fleet stayed in port on Friday, while in Spain, 7,000 fishermen held protests at the agriculture ministry.
French fishermen have been protesting for weeks, with Belgian and Italian colleagues also involved.
UK and Dutch lorry drivers held similar protests earlier this week.
The strike reflects anger at the rising cost of fuel, with oil prices above $130 (83.40 euros; ?65.80) a barrel.
Trade unions say the cost of diesel has become prohibitively high, after rising 300% over the past five years.
Wholesale fish prices, meanwhile, have been static for 20 years.
*Map showing countries involved in protest* < http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7426971.stm#map>
Fishermen's leaders from France, Spain and Italy have been meeting in Paris to co-ordinate strikes and protests over the next three weeks in the run-up to a European Union fisheries ministers' meeting.
The protesters are calling for direct immediate aid for the fisheries industry, coupled with increased subsidies.
The European Commission said in a statement it was willing to show flexibility towards the industry but it has ruled out subsidies to offset rising fuel costs.
Short-term aid packages were acceptable as long as they were used to address structural deficiencies in the fleets, it said.
*'Ruin for fishermen'*
Several thousand fishermen marched on the agriculture ministry in Madrid, where they handed out 20 tonnes of fresh fish to members of the public in an attempt to draw attention to their ailing industry.
Many blew whistles and klaxons, and let off firecrackers producing red smoke.
The BBC's Steve Kingstone at the protest said he could see flags from Catalonia, the Basque country and Galicia.
One banner read: "Soaring diesel plus cheap fish equals ruin for fishermen." Another chided Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero: "You are sending us to the cemetery."
One union leader in Barcelona said the country's fishing fleet was at a standstill.
"Compliance is total. The entire Spanish coast is at a halt," Jose Caparros told AFP news agency.
The unions also say they could blockade ports, a day after French police forcibly removed fishermen blocking oil depots.
"We must mobilise like the French and if we have to block ports, we'll block them," Xavier Aboy, a union leader in Galicia, told AFP.
In France the authorities have offered 100m euros in aid, prompting some fishermen to return to work.
At dawn on Thursday, French riot police cleared protesters from the Mediterranean oil depots of Fos-sur-Mer and Lavera, and a Total refinery at La Mede in the south.
On the same day police clashed with fishermen who burned tyres in the Atlantic port of Lorient, while hundreds protested in Quimper, Brittany.
On Friday, protesters blockaded the Channel port of Le Havre.
Hundreds of farmers have also been blocking oil terminals near the cities of Dijon and Toulouse.
In Italy, at least 5,000 fishermen are expected to strike, the main trade union Federcoopesca says. The government has already refused emergency aid to the industry.
But the BBC's David Willey in Rome says many fishermen are adopting a wait-and-see policy as talks with the government continue, and in the Adriatic ports the response to the strike has been mixed.
"No boats went out" in Portugal, a union leader there said, and in the central port of Peniche boat owners set up a barrier to prevent unloading.
Bulgarian bus drivers are also planning a one-hour strike on Friday, following protests by lorry drivers on Wednesday.
