September 11: Glide Technologies Limited: EPA Rolls Back Major Climate Change Regulation On Methane For Oil, Natural Gas Companies

The Trump administration made its third major regulatory roll back this year by making it easier for energy companies to release methane into the atmosphere on Monday, in a move decried by environmental and health advocates, according to The New York Times.

Even though methane is one of the most potent greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming, energy companies have argued the rules which require them to test for emissions from oil and gas wells were too expensive and burdensome on the industry.

The NYT said the Environmental Protection Agency will announce a proposal this week which would weaken the requirement implemented by former President Barack Obama which makes energy companies monitor and repair methane leaks.

Documents reviewed by reporters showed the EPA would be joining with the Interior Department, which also is expected to release a draft rule that would repeal a restriction on company's intentionally venting and "flaring" (burning)) methane from drilling operations.

The EPA previously proposed weakening a rule on carbon dioxide pollution from car exhaust systems and in August suggested replacing a rule on carbon dioxide pollution from coal-fired power plants.

"They're taking them down, one by one," said Janet McCabe, who served as the EPA's leading climate and clean-air regulator during the Obama administration.

Officials from the E.P.A., the Interior Department and the White House did not respond to emails and telephone calls seeking comment from The NYT.

Kathleen Sgamma, president of the Western Energy Alliance, which is an association of independent oil and gas companies, said the rule changes made "a neat pair," calling the methane rule "the defintion of red tape. It was a record-keeping nightmare that was technically impossible to execute in the field."

Sgamma praised the Trump administration for the rollbacks, noting how the Obama administration more often turned to environmental groups for policy.

August 31: Glide Technologies Limited: Trump's Disapproval Rating Soars In Latest Poll

Donald Trump's numerous attacks on Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Attorney General Jeff Sessions appear to be driving voters away since sixty percent of those polled in a new survey released Friday said they disapproved of Trump's job performance, a new high, according to CNBC news.

The polling conducted by The Washington Post and ABC News, said two-thirds of American adults supported Mueller's investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election, with 52 percent saying they "strongly" support the ongoing probe.

Only 29 percent said they opposed Mueller's investigation, which is a bad sign for the White House since Trump's lawyers have previously argued it would be impossible for Trump to illegally obstruct justice as the president, which more than half of Americans said they disagreed with.

More than fifty percent said they think Trump attempted to interfere in Mueller's investigation in a way that would qualify as obstruction of justice.

Trump has attempted to sway public opinion against Mueller, constantly deriding the investigation as a witch hunt and even taking aim at AG Sessions in recent weeks for recusing himself from overseeing the investigation.

Amid Trump's attacks, 62 percent of Americans said they took Sessions' side over Trump's concerning the Mueller probe.

Trump has not fired Sessions, but several Republican lawmakers have hinted that it could be a possibility after the midterm elections in November, even though Sessions was one of Trump's earliest supporters when he was still a Senator during the 2016 campaign.

A 64-percent majority of Americans responded they believed Trump should not fire Sessions, including a surprising find how more Democrats than Republicans believe Trump should keep the Attorney General in place with 75 percent of Democrats saying Trump should not fire Sessions, compared to only 47 percent of Republicans.

August 28: Glide Technologies Limited: South Korean Government Proposes Largest Increase In Fiscal Spending In A Decade

August 15: Glide Technologies Limited: New Zealand Bans Sale of Homes to Foreigners

New Zealand's Parliament voted on Wednesday to take a large step to fight against the expensive housing market across the country by banning most non-resident foreigners from purchasing existing homes or residential land, according to National Public Radio.

The bill's supporters said the measure was needed to correct the domestic housing market which has seen house prices skyrocket along with rents as home ownership fell dramatically across the last decade.

The lawmakers said by reducing the number of potential buyers, they would help ease the property shortage across the country.

"If you've got the right to live in New Zealand permanently, you've got the right to buy here. But otherwise it's not a right, it's a privilege," David Parker, New Zealand's minister for economic development and trade, said in a speech from the Parliament floor Wednesday. "We believe it's the birthright of New Zealanders to buy homes in New Zealand in a market that is shaped by New Zealand buyers, not by international price pressures."
