Joseph Mariathasan: Climate change and central banks

first_imgThe debate over climate change is certainly heating up – both metaphorically and literally. Record temperatures were reported across the globe last month and the UK’s Met Office stated that the top 10 warmest years on record in the UK have all occurred since 2002.Even central banks are taking it seriously. Gary Smith, managing director at Barings Investment Institute, argues that under the extreme scenarios we appear to be experiencing, the traditional central banker’s focus on a 2% CPI forecast might become meaningless.“The 2°C target – the threshold an increase in the average global temperature is believed to yield catastrophic results if crossed – might become a target that overwhelms all others,” he says.Just how central banks will ultimately incorporate concerns about climate change into their mandates remains to be seen, says Barings’ Smith. Capitalism, according to Bank of England governor Mark Carney, is part of the solution to tackling climate change. Mark CarneyMacro-prudential risk – payouts triggered by climate catastrophes could destroy current insurance business models, which could in turn result in taxpayers becoming the ultimate backstop for this industry;Monetary policy – extreme weather events will have a direct impact on variables that the central bank is charged with targeting, such as the local inflation rate;Reserves management – central banks can loosen rules governing their investable universe to be able to diversify more into green assets.Radical rethinking is required across a whole range of issues, of which energy policy is the most important. There has been a great deal of talk about replacing fossil fuel-based energy sources with alternative energy in the forms of water, wind and solar power. Such energy sources clearly have their place, and as prices reduce and can be set free from government subsidies, their importance rises.However, to assume that they alone can replace fossil fuels in a modern economy seems fantasy. Wade Allison, emeritus professor of physics at Oxford University, pointed out in a newsletter in 2018 that one kilogramme of water behind a dam that is 100 metres high could provide just 1/3,600 kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy. One kilogramme of coal, on the other hand, provides about 7kWh of energy – 20,000 times more. Smith argues this increased focus from central banks on climate change has implications for investors in three areas:center_img The Three Gorges Dam across the Yangtze river in ChinaAs a result, hydroelectric schemes have to be enormous to generate the same amount of energy as a coal-fired equivalent. The environmental and human costs of such schemes are themselves controversial. China’s Three Gorges reservoir on the Yangtze River, which stretches for 600km and is the largest such project in the world, required the relocation of 1.3m people.Wind power also suffers from a low energy density. At their peak, wind turbines can produce as little as nine megawatts per square kilometre. As Allison points out, to match a one-gigawatt coal-fired plant requires several hundred turbines. The same goes for solar energy, which requires covering vast areas of hillside and meadow.The economics of the energy industry are heavily influenced by direct and indirect government subsidies – so much so that it can be difficult to extricate fundamental economics of different choices. The situation becomes even more confused when the risks associated with nuclear power have been historically misrepresented.If central bankers are also now joining in the debate over climate change, there may be more chance that countries like the UK start looking at energy policy with a fresh perspective.Further readingCorporate climate-related financial information ‘still insufficient’: TCFDStrong support for the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures has not yet translated into a satisfactory state of play as regards actual disclosures, according to a stocktaking exercise carried out earlier this yearDutch regulator’s pension fund aims for outperformance on ESG targetsDe Nederlandsche Bank’s €2bn pension scheme plans to fine-tune its responsible investment policy, excluding controversial weapons and tobacco from its investment universeCarbon: Taskforce sets the tone on reportingThe TCFD’s recommendations for a standardised reporting framework for climate-related financial risks are gaining tractionlast_img read more

Gomis: I’m not leaving Swansea

first_img The 12-times capped France striker had appeared to agitate for a transfer in recent weeks despite the sale of Wilfried Bony to Manchester City undoubtedly making him the number one striker at the Liberty Stadium. Crystal Palace reportedly lodged a £9million club record bid and Swansea also confirmed to Press Association Sport that West Ham had made an offer for Gomis during the January transfer window. Bafetimbi Gomis has ended uncertainty over his future by declaring he will stay at Swansea. But Gomis ended weeks of speculation about his future on Monday when he tweeted: “I have decided to stay With Swansea. I wanted to share this With you before the end of the transferts (sic) Windows. It’s the best choice for me. “Even if i was sad before Because i didn’t play a lot. Now everything is différent.I believe in this team and his project. “I have spoken With the coach and I have his confident (sic) and he have mine. I am lucky to play and live to Swansea. “Everybody are very Kind and helpful With me. I’ll do all my best to help the team 2 catch his goal.To all Swans fans i am jack!” Gomis raised doubts of his future in an interview he gave to French television on January 18, accusing Swansea of reneging on promises they made to him when he signed from Lyon on a free transfer last summer. The 29-year-old said he had grown frustrated over his lack of game-time and said he had been promised he would play alongside Bony rather than be second fiddle to the Ivorian. “When Bony was here, it was expected that I would also play in a certain number of games, but that was not the case,” Gomis told Canal Plus. “At my age, it is difficult to spend my time sitting on the bench. Me leaving? It is possible.” But Swansea manager Garry Monk had insisted Gomis would not be sold in this transfer window after the initial £25million departure of Bony left him short of attacking options. Monk brought in Benfica striker Nelson Oliveira on loan at the start of January but Gomis is the only other recognised centre-forward at the club. “I’m confident Bafe will stay here,” Monk said last week. “I understand from a player’s perspective how he’s been frustrated. “He’s not a young player who’s up and coming, he has pedigree as he’s a top performer who’s performed his whole career. “But it’s his shirt to lose now and it’s proved in the past that strikers who have come in and done well for Swansea obviously create a lot of interest in themselves and go on to bigger and better things.” Press Associationlast_img read more

London Derby: Chelsea Seek Revenge against Arsenal

first_img  After losing to Arsenal both the FA Cup final and Community Shield, Antonio Conte would be seeking revenge as Chelsea welcome the Gunners to Stamford Bridge tomorrow. Arsene Wenger is however optimistic of leaving the Bridge unhurt Arsene Wenger is confident Arsenal can pick up the points they want at Chelsea on Super Sunday, and says mentality will be key.Arsenal face a Chelsea side who have won their last three in the Premier League after their opening-day defeat by Burnley at Stamford Bridge, while the Gunners have won two and lost two of their opening four games. Wenger, speaking to Sky Sports, says Arsenal must not be too obsessed by their opponents, and knows they must perform better defensively following their 4-0 defeat at Liverpool three weeks ago.“It’s an important game for us,” the Arsenal manager said. “The way we deal with that on Sunday will have an importance on our season. But it’s very early. I’m confident that away from home we will get the points we want, but certainly mentally for our team it is important to play well and get a positive result.“As always the key is to be much better defensively than we were at Anfield, and to be much more dangerous going forward. By not being too obsessed by our opponent and not to forget to play our football. Chelsea had a surprising early defeat but after that they have responded very well, to beat Tottenham and Leicester away from home. Overall since their first home defeat, they have played three difficult teams and won their games, so it looks again like they will fight for the Premier League.”Alexis Sanchez returned to the starting line-up for Arsenal on Thursday, scoring a fine goal in their 3-1 win over Cologne in the Europa League group stages.Wenger says the Chile international is getting back to his best, and once he is physically fit again, will be starting every game.“It was never a mental problem, because Alexis loves the game and loves to play,” Wenger said. “He came back, I gave him a long breather, over four weeks holiday, because he had not had decent rest in recent years.“Then he got injured, and now he is coming slowly back to his best physically, in the second half you could see that. His physical performance against Cologne was better, and he is slowly coming back to his best.“The supporters, of course, can sometimes be disappointed, but as well they acknowledge the performance on the pitch. That’s what they want from their players first. Alexis is a guy who turns up on the pitch and performs for the club when he plays. I think he’s very close now to his best, and when he will be back completely physically, he would be starting every game.”Arsenal’s dealings in the transfer market were heavily criticised by fans, but Wenger says the club are happy with their business, and also insists the transfer market does not reward sides like Arsenal who attempt to balance spending.Wenger said: “You have to live with all kinds of opinions, but at the end of the day you have to make decisions, rational decisions, and these decisions are guided first by the sportive interests, but as well by the financial respect of your balance sheet.“That’s what we do, we try to combine both. That is not easy because the transfer market is completely deregulated for clubs who live the way we live. So you have to be shrewd.“We brought in (Alexandre) Lacazette and (Sead) Kolasinac and we are very happy with both of them, and we kept most of our players.”Meanwhile, N’Golo Kante has identified his France international team-mate Alexandre Lacazette as the key to Chelsea stopping Arsenal on Sunday.Arsenal spent a club-record £52million to buy Lacazette in July from Lyon, where he found the net 100 times in Ligue 1.The 26-year-old has adapted quickly to the Premier League too, scoring in wins over Leicester and Bournemouth.And Kante, who impressed on his first Champions League appearance in Tuesday’s 6-0 win against Qarabag, said: “I think maybe in England, you don’t know him very well.“But in France, he was a very good goalscorer who scored for many, many years and he will be a threat for Sunday’s game.“We have to be ready to stop him but the most important thing is the team and we need to win.”Another big match in the Premier League this weekend is the Manchester United Everton encounter as the Merseysider travel to Old Trafford in attempt to get their domestic season back on track.Mourinho’s men dropped points for the first time this season last weekend after a trip to Stoke City resulted in a 2-2 draw. It was the only time this season that United looked suspect in defence and the Potters took advantage with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scoring a brace.The Bet365 Stadium, however, is renowned as a difficult ground to go to and pick up three points. In their only other home game this season, Stoke shocked everyone by beating Arsenal 1-0 when new loanee signing Jese scored the only goal. Mark Hughes’ side is one to watch this season for upsets.Everton, on the other hand, have had a difficult start to the season. They may have beaten Stoke at Goodison, but they’re yet to win another game after defeats to Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspurs while picking up an important point against Manchester City.It remains to be seen after a decent summer whether Ronald Koeman can utilise his new group of players and gel them together quickly. If the Dutch manager can make them click in the opening months, there’s no reason why Everton can’t challenge the top Premier League clubs.Michael Keane will return to Old Trafford where he came through as a youth graduate before Louis van Gaal agreed to sell the player to Burnley. It was under the management of Sean Dyche that Keane became an England international and earned a move worth approximately £30m to Goodison Park.Moreover, Keane was a target for United before Mourinho opted to sign former Benfica defender Victor Lindelof. The Everton defender will get a good reception at Old Trafford on Sunday.Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho has said Wayne Rooney will be welcomed as a “real legend” when he returns to Old Trafford.England’s record goalscorer left United to return to boyhood club Everton this summer after 13 successful years with the Red Devils.Rooney, who since returning to Merseyside has retired from international football, is also the highest scorer in United’s history and this Sunday returns to the club where he scored a record 253 goals in 559 appearances.Mourinho expects the Old Trafford faithful to show the 31-year-old the appreciation he deserves, but the United boss hopes supporters put that welcome on hold during the match.“I think that he will get the welcome that he deserves,” the Portuguese said.“I think sometimes in this country the word ‘legend’ comes too easily. That’s not his case, he’s a real legend of the club. The number of appearances, the number of goals, the number of trophies – I think clearly he’s one of the most important players in the history of Manchester United. And I think the stadium will show him that respect that he deserves, I hope before the match and after the match, not during the match.”Ronald Koeman’s men have conceded eight goals in defeats to Chelsea, Tottenham and Atalanta, with that three-match losing streak the tail-end of a five-game winless run.While Everton have threats in their armoury, they know better than anyone what a handful Romelu Lukaku will pose.Signed from the Toffees for an initial £75million over the summer, the Belgium striker has netted six goals in as many games in a seamless start to life at United.“I think he came to us at the right moment – at a good age, with a good number of years of experience in different clubs in the Premier League,” Mourinho added.“Clearly he is a player who has adapted to the Premier League, with good friends already in this dressing room, with an easy integration in our group and the way the team is trying to play also has a good relation with his qualities as a player. So I think he came in the right moment in his career.”However, big-spending Manchester City having a chance to go top of the Premier League today is no surprise, but the possibility their opponents Watford will climb to the summit of English football if they win at Vicarage Road certainly is.Table-toppers Manchester United and Manchester City, currently second on goal difference, both have 10 points from their opening four Premier League games.But with United not playing until Sunday, City have a chance to leapfrog their local rivals.With the club desperate to make an impact on the Champions League in particular after bowing out in the last 16 last term, John Stones scored twice for Pep Guardiola’s expensively-assembled side as they won 4-0 away to Dutch champions Feyenoord in an impressive start to their Champions League campaign on Wednesday.Spanish manager Guardiola was delighted by his side’s positive approach, saying: “We did not play back. We were aggressive.”It was an ominous result for Watford yet Marco Silva’s men are unlikely to feel over-awed knowing that a home win today would take them to 11 points. That would mean Watford were at the summit of English football ladder for the first time since topping the old First Division in 1982.Watford are still unbeaten under Silva and the Portuguese manager said: “It’s important at the moment that everyone, starting with myself, keeps their feet on the ground.”Liverpool will look to put the frustration they felt at failing to beat Sevilla in a 2-2 midweek draw in the Champions League when they face northwest rivals Burnley at Anfield today.Poor defending again proved a problem for Liverpool, who failed in an attempt to sign Virgil van Dijk from Southampton during the transfer window.However, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking after the Sevilla match, said: “I know a lot of people are looking around and they are always talking about the defence. That we didn’t sign this or that.”The German boss added: “It’s not about this. It is about being dominant and losing, a bit, the grip on the game. We need to learn to be dominant and not give easy goals away.”Tottenham Hotspur will hope to prove their commanding 3-1 midweek win against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League at Wembley – just their third in 13 games at the national stadium  was no fluke when they welcome Swansea City to their temporary home on Saturday.Meanwhile basement club Crystal Palace will play their first game under former England manager and boyhood Eagles fan Roy Hodgson when they face Southampton at Selhurst Park on Saturday.Hodgson has replaced the sacked Frank de Boer after the Dutchman’s four games in charge all ended in defeat, with no goals scored during his brief time in charge of the south London club.“You are looking for character really, you’re looking for desire, you’re looking for people with enthusiasm,” Hodgson said when asked what he wanted to see from his players.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Stenavich anchoring Wolverine offensive line

first_imgIt’s always nice to return home. The familiar sights, sounds and friendly faces are what make every trip home a pleasant experience.Well, that’s how it’s supposed to go at least.But for Adam Stenavich, a native of Marshfield, Wis., the homecoming might not be so sweet. But that’s what tends to happen when you walk into Camp Randall Stadium on a Saturday afternoon donning the Maize and Blue of the Michigan Wolverines.”It’s a rowdy place, a lot like Columbus as far as the noise and everything like that,” Stenavich said. “I haven’t actually been there [as a player], so I don’t know how loud it’s going to be. It should be interesting, they’ve got good fans.”Yet Stenavich, Michigan’s starting left tackle, doesn’t seem to mind. After five years of battling for Michigan, Stenavich is making his first trip to Camp Randall, a place he visited several times during his youth, as a Wolverine.”I’ve been to probably five or six games and my sister went to college there. I know all about the Badgers and everything,” Stenavich said. “There’s going to be a lot of family and friends there from my hometown. It’s going to be really exciting. It will be fun to have everyone there and I’m really looking forward to playing [at] Camp Randall.”Stenavich, though, is not totally unfamiliar with Wisconsin’s team, as the fifth-year senior faced several current UW players during his high school days.”I played against a couple of guys [on Wisconsin’s roster,]” Stenavich said. “Mark Zalewski, their linebacker, he’s a good linebacker.”A dominating offensive lineman at Marshfield High School, located in a small city (Wisconsin’s best small city according to the city website) of just under 20,000 in north-central Wisconsin, Stenavich was receiving interest from several schools including his home-state Badgers.”I grew up a Badger fan,” Stenavich admitted.Of course, it wasn’t exactly a bad time to follow the Badgers either. While Stenavich labored away creating a name for himself in the high school realm, Wisconsin was in the midst of a 30-7 three-year run from 1998-2000, a time frame which also saw the Badgers earn back-to-back Rose Bowl victories. “[Barry Alvarez] definitely turned [the Wisconsin football program] around,” Stenavich said. “He definitely turned the program around and went to a few Rose Bowls. He means a lot to the state just as far as bringing the Badgers back.”Wisconsin was arguably in its most successful run in school history, and Alvarez’s name was one of the premiers in college football. None of these facts were lost on Stenavich as he began to wade through the numerous scholarship offers he received in 2000, his senior season at Marshfield.But the nation’s No. 16-rated offensive lineman in the nation, according to Superprep, wasn’t ready to pledge his allegiance to the Badgers despite their history of producing professional-caliber linemen and his childhood love for the team.Instead, Stenavich took several other visits, including a trip to Ann Arbor, Mich., to visit the University of Michigan. The visit would turn out to be the most influential of all of the visits Stenavich would take, as he accepted a scholarship to play for one of Wisconsin’s greatest rivals.”I just came to Michigan and loved the place. I liked it a lot better than Wisconsin, so I decided it was the place for me,” Stenavich said. Five years later, Stenavich has cemented himself as the anchor of an offensive line in flux. A third-year starter who earned all-Big Ten accolades last year from the coaches and media, Stenavich has earned the praise of his coaches thanks to his hard-working style both in games and in practice.”He’s a very good leader because of his consistency,” Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr said. “He’s the same day-in and day-out. I mean, I never have to get on Adam Stenavich because he hasn’t been practicing hard, because he’s been making mental mistakes, because he’s not doing the things that he needs to do.””He’s been a lot of fun to have around,” Carr added. “He’s the kind of guy that you know is part of the backbone of our team.”last_img read more

Ennis tallies 9 assists, stars for Syracuse despite scoreless day

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on December 31, 2013 at 8:46 pm Contact Jesse: jcdoug01@syr.edu | @dougherty_jesse Before Tuesday, Tyler Ennis couldn’t remember the last time he didn’t score in a game.But against Eastern Michigan’s 2-3 zone — implemented by former Syracuse assistant Rob Murphy after the Orange’s model — Ennis was the only SU starter to not tally a point.Not one jump shot, layup or free throw. Just four missed field goals, one missed foul shot and one of the most surprising stat lines of Syracuse’s young season.But it wasn’t a bad one.“Guys were making shots. It’s not that I don’t want to score,” Ennis said. “With other guys scoring today it wasn’t really necessary for me to.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNo. 2 Syracuse (13-0) ran by Eastern Michigan (7-5) 70-48 in front of 20,306 in the Carrier Dome on Tuesday, and Ennis replaced his scoring touch with a full arsenal of nifty passes. In 32 minutes the freshman point guard dished out nine assists and committed just two turnovers,  helping every other starter finish in double figures.In SU’s 78-62 win over then-No. 8 Villanova on Saturday, Ennis dropped 20 and his ability to attack the basket was on full display. But his scoreless performance against the Eagles presented a far more effective freshman.The artful distributor that Syracuse will rely upon heading into Atlantic Coast Conference play.“He’s a good player whether he scores or not,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “It’s not about points. With Tyler I don’t have that concern about his scoring.”The first half was a point guard clinic.Under four minutes in, Ennis Euro-stepped around EMU guard Ray Lee and threw an around-the-back pass to a trailing Jerami Grant.Lee’s momentum almost took him out of bounds. Da’Shonte Riley went up expecting to block Ennis’ shot and Karrington Ward stood confused in the middle of the paint. With just two quick steps and a flick of his right wrist, Ennis took three defenders out of the play and left Grant with a wide-open lay in.Just more than a minute later, Ennis gathered a failed lob and whipped a no-look pass across the paint to a cutting C.J. Fair who finished with a dunk. And moments after  that, Ennis threw a no-look, one-handed pass from half court, through a crowd, and Grant finished with a slam.“He was throwin’ ‘em,” Grant said.Ennis rounded out his first-half highlight reel with a rainbow lob to Rakeem Christmas, who finished the alley-oop with authority. By halftime, Ennis had six assists.“He’s looking to pass first and score second,” Christmas said, “so when he has the ball you definitely have to be paying attention.”When the SU offense stalls moving forward — as it did at times in the second half against Eastern Michigan — the Orange will look to Ennis to improvise late in possessions and create scoring chances.He showcased his ability do just that on Tuesday. Even when the Eagles’ lengthy zone tried to pressure him up top or trap him in the paint, Ennis’ eyes never fell. Instead he kept them on the shot clock and his teammates, which turned into a season-high 15 points for Christmas, and productive nights from the rest of SU’s starters.Even with a nonconference schedule that featured wins over Baylor, Indiana and Villanova, the Orange’s ACC schedule will present its toughest tests. Now’s the perfect time for Ennis to prove himself one of the most valuable freshmen in the country.“He’s a great playmaker and he finds everyone,” Fair said. “Even if you don’t think he sees you he’s going to find you. He don’t have to score a lot to make his impact on the game.”The second half brought more of the same.Ennis pantomimed a scoop layup before finding Trevor Cooney on the wing for one of Cooney’s two 3s, then dropped a bounce pass into the waiting hands of freshman Tyler Roberson who put in two.Ennis closed his day by missing a layup in transition before Boeheim sat him down for the final 3:18. It was an uncontested layup and an easy way onto the scorecard, but the Orange didn’t need it.The freshman point guard watched his classmates finish up the lopsided win from the bench and was satisfied with his performance after the game.“I had my opportunities and some of them didn’t go down but that’s nothing big for me,” Ennis said. “If it means me not scoring, or them scoring, it’s whatever. I’m happy to do it.” Commentslast_img read more
