    Bioplastics are often promoted as an environmentally and climate-friendly alternative to conventional petroleum-based plastics. However, a recent study from the University of Bonn suggests that shifting to plant-based plastics could have less positive effects than expected. Specifically, an increased consumption of bioplastics in the following years is likely to generate increased greenhouse gas emissions from cropland expansion on a global scale. The study will be soon published in the scientific Journal Environmental Research Letters and is already available online.

    Plastics are usually made from petroleum, with the associated impacts in terms of fossil fuel depletion but also climate change: The carbon embodied in fossil resources is suddenly released to the atmosphere by degradation or burning, hence contributing to global warming. This corresponds to about 400 million metric tonnes of CO2 per year worldwide, almost half of the total greenhouse gases that Germany emitted to the atmosphere in 2017. It is estimated that by 2050, plastics could already be responsible for 15% of the global CO2 emissions.

    Bioplastics, on the other hand, are in principle climate-neutral since they are based on renewable raw materials such as maize, wheat or sugar cane. These plants get the CO2 that they need from the air through their leaves. Producing bioplastics therefore consumes CO2, which compensates for the amount that is later released at end-of-life. Overall, their net greenhouse gas balance is assumed to be zero. Bioplastics are thus often consumed as an environmentally friendly alternative.

    But at least with the current level of technology, this issue is probably not as clear as often assumed. “The production of bioplastics in large amounts would change land use globally,” explains Dr. Neus Escobar from the Institute of Food and Resource Economics at the University of Bonn. “This could potentially lead to an increase in the conversion of forest areas to arable land. However, forests absorb considerably more CO2 than maize or sugar cane annually, if only because of their larger biomass.” Experience with biofuels has shown that this effect is not a theoretical speculation. The increasing demand for the “green” energy sources has brought massive deforestation to some countries across the tropics.

    Dr. Neus Escobar and her colleagues Salwa Haddad, Prof. Dr. Jan Börner and Dr. Wolfgang Britz have simulated the effects of an increased demand for bioplastics in major producing countries. They used and extended a computer model that had already been used to calculate the impacts of biofuel policies. It is based on a database that depicts the entire world economy.

    “For our experiment, we assume that the share of bioplastics relative to total plastic consumption increases to 5% in Europe, China, Brazil and the USA,” she explains. “We run two different scenarios: a tax on conventional plastics compared with a subsidy on bioplastics.” The most dramatic effects are found for the tax scenario: As fossil-based plastics consequently become considerably more expensive, the demand for them falls significantly. Worldwide, 0.08% fewer greenhouse gases would be released each year. However, part of this decline is due to economic distortions, as the tax also slows economic growth.

    More fields, fewer forests

    At the same time, the area of land used for agriculture increases in the tax scenario, while the forest area decreases by 0.17%. This translates into enormous quantities of CO2 being emitted into the atmosphere. “This is considered to occur as a one-time effect,” Escobar explains. “Nevertheless, according to our calculations, it will take more than 20 years for it to be offset by the savings achieved by fossil substitution.”

    All in all, it takes a lot of time for the switch to bioplastics to pay off. Furthermore, the researchers estimate the societal costs of this policy to decrease one tonne of CO2 at more than 2,000 US dollars – a high sum as compared to biofuel mandates. A subsidy to bioplastics would have very different effects on the global economy. However, both the compensation period and the costs for climate change mitigation would remain almost the same as with the tax.

    “Consuming bioplastics from food crops in greater amounts does not seem to be an effective strategy to protect the climate,” said the scientist. Especially because this would trigger many other negative effects, such as rising food prices. “But this would probably look different if other biomass resources were used for production, such as crop residues,” says Escobar. “We recommend concentrating research efforts on these advanced bioplastics and bring them to market.”

    The belief that bioplastics will reduce the amount of waste in the oceans may not even come true. Just because plastics are made from plants does not automatically make them easily degradable in marine environments, Escobar emphasizes. “Bio-PE and Bio-PET are for example not biodegradable, same as their petroleum-based counterparts.” Bioplastics and biomaterials have however one clear advantage: They help to reduce the fossil fuel dependency of highly industrialized regions. The scientists conclude that if governments really want to protect the environment, they should rather pursue a different strategy: It makes more sense to use plastic sparingly and to ensure that it is actually recycled.

    JACKSONVILLE, FL, Dec. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jacksonville University (JU) is pleased to announce the naming of the Linda Berry Stein College of Fine Arts in recognition of a multi-year, multi-million-dollar gift, among the largest investments in the University’s 84-year history, from alumnus Linda Berry Stein ’69 and her husband, David Stein.

                                                                                                      

    “Linda and David Stein have helped lead Jacksonville University’s robust culture of giving and serving, and we are grateful for their investment in the future success of our students,” said Tim Cost ’81, President of Jacksonville University. “Linda and David are game changers of the highest order, as advocates, mentors and friends, and we are honored to celebrate the future of the Linda Berry Stein College of Fine Arts.”

     

    The Steins’ historic investment creates the Stein Artist Scholars Endowment, endowing “Steiner” student scholarships in perpetuity, as well as funding the renovation of the on-campus Phillips Fine Arts Building and the naming of the Stein Family Lobby, establishment of an outdoor study and creative collaboration plaza adjacent to the arts complex, and formation of the Linda Berry Stein Fine Arts Student of the Year award.

     

    This transformational gift continues Linda Berry Stein’s deep relationship with the arts at Jacksonville University. She left her hometown of Savannah, Georgia to enroll at JU under the tutelage of then-Dean of Fine Arts Dr. Frances Bartlett Kinne. Linda Berry Stein became a proud member of the Tri Delta Sorority, was crowned Miss Jacksonville University in her junior year, named Miss Riparian, and sweetheart for the Alpha Kappa Psi and Phi Delta Theta fraternities, and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1969. More recently, the Steins were honored as Outstanding Philanthropists in 2016 by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, and Linda Berry Stein was celebrated as the recipient of the 2018 EVE Award from the Florida Times-Union, as well as the 2018 Bernard Selevan Tree of Life Award from the Jewish National Fund.

     

    “I came to JU as a young woman looking to build my future. My mother and father believed in a strong education and always supported my passions,” said Linda Berry Stein. “I earned scholarships, worked hard, studied, pursued a music degree and made lifelong friends here. To have this opportunity to reinvest in my alma mater, my home away from home, and our talented students fills my heart. It is a joy for David and me to make this commitment to a place that means so much to us.”

     

    “Linda Berry Stein exemplifies the best of our Jacksonville University graduates,” said Chancellor Emerita Frances Bartlett Kinne. “I always tell our students to go out and make the world a better place, and the Steins have taken that to heart, supporting young people in so many parts of Jacksonville, and keeping the University close to their hearts.”

     

    The unveiling occurred December 7 in conjunction with the Linda Berry Stein College of Fine Arts’ annual, sold-out holiday orchestra concert at the recently-renovated Terry Concert Hall, home of the newest JU glass masterpiece, Creative Current. The Stein gift comes on the heels of the University’s unprecedented fundraising effort – ASPIRE, which concluded on June 30, 2018. The ASPIRE philanthropic campaign surpassed both initial and elevated goals, raising $121.4 million for University priorities set forth by President Cost and the Board of Trustees. This latest gift also marks the second multi-million-dollar investment in the University in less than three months. JU received a $6.3 million unrestricted gift from The Carl S. Swisher Foundation in September.

     

    “As an alumna, the chair of the College of Fine Arts’ 50^th Anniversary Celebration, a 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award honoree, and a charter member of the College of Fine Arts’ Advisory Board, Linda’s history of kindness and generosity toward our college is extraordinary,” said Dr. Tim Snyder, Dean of the Linda Berry Stein College of Fine Arts. “This visionary gift from the Steins promises to transform the Linda Berry Stein College of Fine Arts and help us fulfill our mission of training young artists to succeed in the world and to change it for the better.”

     

    Approaching nearly six decades of world-renowned and award-winning arts education, the Linda Berry Stein College of Fine Arts offers undergraduate students in Dance, Music, Theater and the Visual Arts, and graduate degrees in Choreography and Visual Arts. Past graduates have gone on to win Tony awards on Broadway and Emmy awards on television, as well as recognition for composition, visual arts, and choreography. Notable Dolphins include actor, theater director and singer Terrence Mann and the late actor, comedian and radio personality Jay Thomas. The Linda Berry Stein College of Fine Arts is also renowned for its glassblowing program, with Jacksonville University student and faculty work on display at the Florida Times-Union Center, the Cummer Museum, and the Jacksonville University Davis College of Business.

     

    Named an “America’s Best College” in the south for more than 10 consecutive years by U.S. News & World Report, Jacksonville University is a premier private institution in northeast Florida. Founded in 1934, JU offers more than 100 majors, minors, and programs, including in-demand degrees in Business, Marine Science, Engineering, Finance, Physics, and Nursing, as well as those in the more contemporary and specialized fields of Aviation, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Film, Animation, and Sport Business.

     

    Jacksonville University is located in a beautiful riverfront setting in suburban Jacksonville, across the St. Johns River from downtown and just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean. The 240-acre campus includes a half-mile of riverfront, oak-lined paths, and a mix of historic and new campus buildings.

    Israel has hailed U.S. President Donald Trump’s announcement that he will nominate former Fox news reporter and current State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the U.S. ambassador and permanent representative to the United Nations headquarters in New York, according to agencies and The Times of Israel.

    Nauert will replace Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor who announced in October that she would step down as ambassador at the end of this year.

    “Heather Nauert will be nominated,” Trump said on December 7 before leaving the White House on Marine One for an event in Kansas City. “She’s very talented, very smart, very quick, and I think she’s going to be respected by all.”

    The Times of Israel writes: “Israeli envoy to the UN Danny Danon welcomed the announcement and paid tribute to Haley who became a darling of the Trump administration and the pro-Israel community for her vociferous defense of the Jewish state at the UN, a body often seen as hostile to Israel.”

    “Nauert has stood behind Israel in her previous positions and I have no doubt that the cooperation between our countries will continue to strengthen during her term,” Danon is quoted saying.

    “During the last two years we succeeded, through close cooperation in changing the hostile atmosphere in the UN and making unprecedented achievements,” he said.

    A former Fox News Channel reporter, Nauert had little foreign policy experience before becoming State Department spokeswoman. If confirmed by the Senate, she would be a leading administration voice on Trump’s foreign policy.

    Nauert is also seen as close to Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, senior White House adviser Jared Kushner.

    Like Haley, a former South Carolina governor, Nauert would come to the job with little experience in diplomacy, maintains The Times of Israel.

    The newspaper points out that President Trump’s announcement about Nauert’s appointment comes hours after a resolution championed by Haley condemning the Hamas failed to pass in the General Assembly. The measure won a large majority, but not enough to secure the two-thirds needed for it to pass. Israeli leaders nonetheless thanked her and feted the results as proof of wide support for Israel’s position.

    Haley rattled the United Nations when she arrived in January 2017 vowing that the United States will be “taking names” of countries that oppose Trump’s foreign policy, particularly regarding Israel.

    Ahead of the vote, the U.S. ambassador sent a letter to all UN missions to make clear that “the United States takes the outcome of this vote very seriously.”

    It was not immediately clear if Nauert would be able to defend Israel in the same powerful way as Haley did. Following the vote, she retweeted a comment by U.S. special envoy Jason Greenblatt condemning the world body’s inability to pass the measure, but did not publicly comment herself, says The Times of Israel.

    Other candidates considered for the job, according to Bloomberg, were former White House adviser Dina Powell, ambassador to Canada Kelly Craft and ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell.

    Grabbed from Fox by the White House to serve as State Department spokeswoman, Nauert catapulted into the upper echelons of the agency’s hierarchy when Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was fired in March and replaced with Mike Pompeo.

    Nauert was then appointed acting undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs and was for a time the highest-ranking woman and fourth highest-ranking official in the building. She did not have a good relationship with Tillerson and had considered leaving the department.

    Her associates said at the time she was surprised by the promotion offer and recommended a colleague for the job. But when White House officials told her they wanted her, she accepted.

    In her current job, she has responsibilities far beyond the news conferences she held in the State Department briefing room. She oversees public diplomacy in Washington and all of the roughly 275 overseas U.S. embassies, consulates and other posts. She is in charge of the Global Engagement Center that fights extremist messaging from the Islamic State group and others, and she has a seat on the U.S. Agency for Global Media that oversees government broadcast networks such as Voice of America.

    Just 18 months earlier, she wasn’t even in government, notes The Times of Israel. Reported by Eurasia Review 8 hours ago.
