    Ireland has the third highest death rate from lung disease in Europe. It can affect anyone regardless of age, health status and walk of life yet unlike the other big killer, Heart Disease, it doesn't seem to be prioritised. Jonathan meets Prof Gerry McElvaney from RCSI who has discovered that the high prevalence of one type of lung disease in this country could be linked to a genetic lung condition (Alpha-1) which affects 1 in 24 Irish people, 90% of which are undiagnosed... For more information on Alpha-1 and how to get tested, visit the Alpha One Foundation website, www.alpha1.ie, ring 01-8093871 or email alpha1@rcsi.ie

                    EPA’s proposed rule 111(d) would require close tracking of energy and emission attributes from power generation, as well as tracking of interstate transfers of physical power and associated environmental attributes. States would need to decide how to relate their State Implementation Plans to existing RPSs and other programs that involve tracking of electricity and emission attributes. States are already engaged in markets where power attributes (primarily RECs, but also zero emission attributes from large hydro and nuclear facilities) are traded across states and regions. To provide background information on these issues, APX Environmental Markets has written a paper on the topic of “Using Tracking Systems with the Implementation of Section 111(d) State Plans.” (Read that paper here: http://www.apx.com/2014/10/27/apx-research-section-111d-tracking-systems/.) The paper discusses the key elements of tracking systems, differences among them, various ways in which they could be used in 111(d) compliance, and which compliance options may be most appropriate in which situations. In this webinar, Lars Kvale of APX summarized and discussed the report’s main points. This webinar originally aired on 12.10.14. Slides from this webinar are available as a pdf here: http://www.cesa.org/assets/Uploads/RPS-Webinar-Slides-12.10.2.pdf
