Lava creeps to edge of geothermal plant on Hawaii's Big Island -

Lava creeps to edge of geothermal plant on Hawaii's Big IslandBy Terray Sylvester PAHOA, Hawaii (Reuters) - Molten lava from the erupting Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii's Big Island crept to the edge of a geothermal power plant on Monday, as workers rushed to shut down the facility to prevent the uncontrollable release of toxic gases. The race to cap three geothermal wells at the site marked the latest challenge facing authorities as they cope with what geologists rank as one of the biggest upheavals in a century from one of the world's most active volcanoes. The Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) plant, which provides about 25 percent of the Big Island's power, has been closed since shortly after lava began erupting on May 3 through newly opened fissures in the ground running through neighborhoods and roads on the far eastern flank of Kilauea.

U.S. proposes end of grizzly-baiting ban in Alaska's national preservesEnvironmental groups immediately assailed the proposal, saying bear-baiting and other hunting and trapping practices the measure would permit are inhumane and disruptive to the natural predator-prey dynamic in Alaska's preserves. The plan, pushed by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, would give state wildlife managers the discretion to decide what kinds of bear-hunting methods are permitted across 20 million acres (8.million hectares) of national preserve lands in Alaska.

Pennsylvania sues over troubled Harrisburg incinerator bond dealsPennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf's administration on Monday sued an array of financial, legal and other professional firms over their involvement in a 15-year-old incinerator upgrade project that nearly bankrupted the state capital, Harrisburg. The state sued RBC Capital Markets, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC, Public Financial Management Inc (PFM) and others over the 2003 ill-fated trash-to-energy project, which saddled the city with more than $360 million of debt. In its time, Harrisburg's debt saga was the most dramatic episode in U.S. public finance, coming before both Detroit and Puerto Rico filed their respective bankruptcies.
