#BREAKING144 ‘ EPA Aircraft emissions endanger peoples lives ‘

#AceBreakingNews – WASHINGTON:June.10: (WASHINGTON EXAMINER) The Environmental Protection Agency announced Wednesday that emissions from commercial jets cause climate change, endangering the public’s health and welfare.

“Today’s action supports the goals of the President’s Climate Action Plan to reduce emissions from large sources of carbon pollution,” the EPA said in a press release.

The announcement is the first step in regulating the emissions from commercial airlines that most scientists say are to blame for manmade climate change. The regulations fall in step with the agency’s efforts to regulate the emissions from cars, trucks and power plants.

The EPA says it is excluding military and smaller aircraft from the regulations.

‘Huge Explosion Rocked Kosovo’s Main Power Plant’

#AceWorldNews – PRISTINA – June 06  – A huge explosion rocked Kosovo’s main power plant Friday, killing at least three people and injuring more than a dozen, AP reported, citing a government official.

The blast might have been caused during a botched replacement of hydrogen canisters used for cooling generators.

The powerful explosion was heard in the nearby capital, Pristina, and a black plume of smoke could be seen rising from the coal-fired plant.

It was not immediately clear what caused the blast.
