Hungarian Leader Says Pipeline Project Is in Trouble -

After delivering a speech on economic policy hosted by European Policy Center, a research group in Brussels, Mr. Orban said in response to a question on Nabucco that it was "in trouble," adding that "even the Hungarian company MOL is leaving the whole project." Christian Dolezal, a Nabucco spokesman, said there had been no indication from MOL or from its subsidiary, FGSZ, which is a shareholder in Nabucco, that MOL was pulling out. "As far as we know, MOL Group's position and commitment toward the Nabucco project remains unchanged," Mr. Dolezal said. Other members of the Nabucco consortium include the German utility RWE and the Austrian oil company OMV. Mr. Orban said that at the same time, a Russian project called South Stream -- which would run through Hungary and is backed by Gazprom, the Russian gas export monopoly -- was gaining momentum. "The Russians are getting more and more active" with respect to South Stream, Mr. Orban said. As a result, he said, there were "very simple economic reasons" for Hungary to be included in the South Stream project. But to ensure adequate supplies and reduce dependence on Russia, Mr. Orban said it would be necessary for Hungary to build up a variety of other pipeline routes from neighboring states like Slovakia, Croatia and Italy. The European Commission cranked up plans to build Nabucco after 2006, when Russia turned off the flow to Ukraine, an important transshipment country, in the dead of winter during a pricing dispute. A year later, Gazprom and Eni, a major Italian energy company, introduced plans for South Stream.

Phys.Org Mobile: Bonn to house top UN panel on biodiversity

The former West German capital of Bonn has been chosen for the secretariat of a UN expert panel on biodiversity, the organisation announced on Thursday. The decision was made at a plenary meeting in Panama City of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, or IPBES, according to an announcement on the platform's website. "Germany (Bonn) wins the vote to host the IPBES secretariat by majority in the fourth round of the voting process," it said in a flash news item. IPBES was set up in 2010 after five years in gestation. It held its first gathering in Nairobi last October. Its goal is to imitate the success of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), in which thousands of scientists draw up an assessment of global warming to help policymakers. Some biologists say that Earth is in the early stages of a sixth mass extinction, a man-made phenomenon driven by habitat loss, hunting, introduced species and climate damage. The 2008 "Red List" assessment by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) found that 38 percent of 44,837 species were threatened. Bonn was the capital of West Germany until German reunification in 1990. It was the united country's seat of government until 1999, when Berlin became the capital, but retained many government departments. IPBES will join two other big UN environment organisations -- the Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) -- whose secretariats are in Bonn. The five-day meeting in Panama, ending on Saturday, also aims at setting down procedures and a work programme, IPBES said.
