As the president assumed power, he hung 6000 criminals to safeguard the nation and its people.

The rebellious territory of Syria saw the victory of Bashar al-Assad favored by Russian help. The Islamic State had lost its base both in Iraq and Syria. The troops of the government had recaptured the Mosul. But even then, the Islamic State’s violence continued. They killed civilians indiscriminately. They tortured the sympathizers and bombed hospitals too. The Islamic State terrorists conducted a fierce attack on the airport of Brussels and killed about 32 innocents. A gunman from the extremist’s troop assassinated about 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando. Similarly, a jihadist killed 86 people cruelly who were celebrating the Bastille Day.

In Jakarta, they killed four more people and in Berlin, they assassinated more than a dozen innocent lives at the Christmas market. On the other hand, in France, the law on bikini went on to create news. A majority of the seaside towns have banned the use of the swimsuit. However, the Italians were against the policy. The Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi resigned after voting against the reforms of the constitution. The year 2016 also saw the death of the revolutionary leader of Cuba, Fidel Castro at the age of 90. Natural disasters also took its spell in the form of Atlantic storm and earthquakes. Hope the new year is better and brighter.

The Biggest Plant Of Carbon Capture To Start Soon

A revolution will get started with the opening of the biggest carbon capture plant. If everything goes alright according to the plan, the largest carbon capture plant will be opened by the end of the year. Petra Nova, which helps to protect the atmosphere from carbon dioxide, will become an important and necessary means to deal with climate change.

David Greeson, the vice president, has said that coal parts play an important role in the United States energy. David Greeson also added that the main motive is to lessen the environmental impacts. The partners in this project are JX Nippon, the largest oil producer in Japan and NRG Energy. They are sharing a joint venture of 50-50 under the name Petra Nova Parish LLC. JX Nippon and NRG have invested 300 million each. For the carbon plant, the energy department of US has given 167 million to NRG along with 23 million under section 313. The Mizuho Bank and the Japan Bank have also given loans of 250 million.
This is considered as one of the largest projects that have been funded like this.

Greeson said in the meeting that Petra Nova is on the right track which is as per the planning. He assured that the development team had worked closely to avoid any technical issues before the new plant construction had started. In addition to it, the independent power producer NRG have bid into a market which is competitive.

This situation means the ratepayers are less and as a result of it if the power’s price goes up, the customers will be going out elsewhere. David Greeson added that since the technology they are using is not revolutionary, they might have to take a risk. He confirmed that the main thing is to execute and to know what deal they will be getting before the start of the plant.
