first_imgPublished in July, the consultation response addresses important details that are vital to the development and deployment of CCUS projects in the UK. The response to the consultation on CCUS business models summarised the responses received and government’s view on:Potential CCUS business models for industry, power, CO2 transport and storage and low carbon hydrogen production action needed to enable CCUS deployment in the 2020s, including a CCUS delivery action plan.Objectives and principles for CCUS deployment.Commenting on the publication, Luke Warren, Chief Executive of the CCSA, said, “We are delighted that the long-anticipated report on CCUS Business Models has been published by the Government. This consultation response is a critical step forward in the development of the commercial framework that is essential if the first CCUS projects in the UK are to be operating by the mid-2020s.”“The government has today set out their minded-to-position on the business models that will be used to enable CCUS investment in the UK. This includes the proposed approach for CO2 transport and storage infrastructure which will underpin CCUS deployment in the UK’s industrial regions – delivering clean regional growth, making a significant contribution to the Government’s levelling up agenda and helping to support a green post-covid recovery.”“Whilst this paper does provide all of the answers, the Government has committed to build on this and come forward with further detail by the end of the year.

Flash flood kills 5 children, 4 adults at Arizona swim hole

first_img Health risks of standing water Do you see a typo or an error? Let us know. Recommended Author: AP Loss of 10 relatives in flood leaves hole in Arizona town SHARE Flash flood kills 5 children, 4 adults at Arizona swim hole Published: July 16, 2017 4:57 PM EDT Updated: July 17, 2017 6:04 AM EDT TONTO NATIONAL FOREST, Ariz. (AP) Adults, teens and children as young as 2 were enjoying a summer afternoon by cooling off in an Arizona creek when the gentle waters turned deadly.The group from the Phoenix and Flagstaff areas had met Saturday for a day trip along a popular swimming hole near Payson, about 100 miles (160.9 kilometers) northeast of the capital. They set up lounge chairs not knowing an intense thunderstorm was dumping heavy rainfall just upstream in the Tonto National Forest.The storm unleashed 6-foot-high floodwaters, dark with ash from a summer wildfire, onto the unsuspecting family and friends. The torrent carried away tree branches and other debris and left a wake of nine bodies.Search and rescue crews, including 40 people on foot and others in a helicopter, recovered the bodies of five children and four adults, some as far as 2 miles down the river. Authorities did not identify them.A 13-year-old boy from the same group was still missing Sunday.Disa Alexander was hiking to the swimming area where Ellison Creek and East Verde River converge when the water suddenly surged.Video she posted to social media showed torrents of water surging through jagged canyons carved in Arizona’s signature red rock.“I could have just died!” Alexander exclaimed on the video.She spotted a man holding a baby and clinging to a tree. Nearby, his wife was also in a tree. A boy Alexander described as the couple’s son was on the rocks above the water.Had they been swept downstream, they would have been sent over a 20-foot waterfall, Alexander said.Alexander and others tried to reach them but couldn’t.Fortunately help was close by.Some search and rescue team members were already near the swimming hole after getting a call to help someone who had suffered a bad allergic reaction, according to Detective Sgt. David Hornung of the Gila County Sheriff’s Department.When they arrived at the scene, “they heard someone screaming for help and saw a man clinging to a rock,” said Hornung, who added that the man was safely rescued. “Then they heard other people calling for help.”Four people were rescued and taken to the hospital for treatment of hypothermia.Some 40 rescuers in bright orange T-shirts and helmets dotted the green landscape as they combed the waters and banks for the missing boy. A few brought along specially trained search dogs hoping to find him alive, Hornung said.The family, who was staying in the area, declined to be interviewed when approached by an Associated Press reporter.The National Weather Service estimated up to 1.5 inches of rain fell over the area in an hour. The thunderstorm hit about 8 miles upstream along Ellison Creek, which quickly flooded the narrow canyon where the swimmers were.Hornung noted that the National Weather Service had issued a flash flood warning about 1 1/2 hours before, “but unless they had a weather radio out there, they wouldn’t have known about it. There is no cell phone service out here.”The swift waters gushed for about 10 minutes before receding in the narrow canyon, Hornung said.“They had no warning. They heard a roar, and it was on top of them,” Water Wheel Fire and Medical District Fire Chief Ron Sattelmaier said.While Arizona is known for its dryness, it gets bursts of heavy rains during the summer monsoon season. The severe thunderstorm was located in a remote area that had been burned by a recent wildfire, Sattelmaier said. The “burn scar” was one of the reasons the weather service issued the flash-flood warning.“If it’s an intense burn, it creates a glaze on the surface that just repels water,” said Darren McCollum, a meteorologistCrowds looking to beat the Phoenix metro area’s heat often head to the small creeks that flow out of the mountains forming swimming holes and a series of small waterfalls. But officials warn that visitors need to be aware of the dangers of a flash flood.“I wish there was a way from keeping people from getting in there during monsoon season, ” Sattelmaier said “It happens every year. We’ve just been lucky something like this hasn’t been this tragic.”Steve Stevens, a volunteer fire fighter with Water Wheel Search and Rescue, said visitors should stay away when there are flash flood warnings.“The clouds over on the other side of the mountain can be dumping buckets, and all of a sudden there’s a wall of water coming through that just wipes out everything in its path,” said Stevens, who has lived in the area for 20 years.Sudden flooding in canyons has been deadly before. In 2015, seven people were killed in Utah’s Zion National Park when they were trapped during a flash flood while hiking in a popular canyon that was as narrow as a window in some spots and several hundred feet deep.In 1997, 11 hikers were killed near Page, Arizona, after a wall of water from a rainstorm miles upstream tore through a narrow, twisting series of corkscrew-curved walls on Navajo land known as Lower Antelope Canyon.last_img read more

Listen: Rob Mayes releases new track Don’t Give Up On Me

first_imgRob Mayes has released new single Don’t Give Up On Me.The singer/songwriter and actor dropped the track on Friday and it’s the follow-up to Damage I Done. Don’t Give Up On Me was co-written by legendary songwriter Earl Bud Lee (Garth Brooks’ Friends In Low Places), who also wrote Rob’s recent release Didn’t Do This On My Own.Take a listen to the song below:Don’t Give Up On Me is produced by Scott Harter, mixed by Mark Lonsway and mastered by Grammy-nominated Andrew Mendelson.Speaking about the track Rob says:“Don’t Give Up On Me is a beseeching, a prayer and a plea, that in difficult and trying times (which 2020 has certainly proven to be), offers us a reminder to keep the faith, and that we might ask for God’s grace and salvation now more than ever.“During an early trip to Nashville a handful of years back, I had heard J Michael Harter sing this song and knew that I had to cut it. It’s one of the most powerful songs I’ve ever heard – I sure can’t take credit for writing this gem, but I can lend my voice to it, because it speaks to me, and reminds me to have faith, because that’s really the only way.”Rob has been garnering plenty of attention with his releases over the past 18 months. In 2019 he released his debut EP Closer and recent single Didn’t Do This On My Own, which premiered on Chris Country, has had more than 250,000 streams on Spotify alone.last_img read more
