In an effort to increase the share of natural gas in its energy supply, China’s state energy company Sinopec plans to nearly triple receiving capacity for liquefied natural gas (LNG) by 2023, and to raise its domestic shale gas production by two-thirds by 2020. Sinopec will aim to lift the share of natural gas to half of its total energy supply by 2023, according to company executives. The drive is also fitting the broader Chinese push to fight pollution by having millions of households switch to natural gas from coal for heating. This resulted…

Rep. Esty vows to ‘do better’ on staff safety after aide’s reported threat

Rep. Elizabeth Esty (D-Conn.) vowed to take steps “to ensure a safe environment” for congressional employees in a letter to fellow lawmakers on Friday after it was reported her former chief of staff threatened to “kill” a fellow aide. “In the spring of 2016, my then-Chief of Staff made a threat of violence against a former member of my staff,” Esty told legislators in a memo obtained by POLITICO. “I was horrified and angry to learn that someone I put my trust into could victimize a member of my staff, someone I respect and care deeply about.”The admission came a day after the Washington Post reported that Tony Baker, Esty’s former chief of staff, threatened fellow aide Anna Kain in May 2016 in a voice mail message. The post reports that Esty kept Baker on for three months after learning of the incident. “You better f-----g reply to me or I will f-----g kill you,” Baker told Kain, according to a recording obtained by the Post and reported Thursday. According to the report, Esty keep the staffer on for three months after consulting with her personal lawyers and advisers. During that time Esty penned a positive letter of recommendation for Baker to use to land another job. The Democratic lawmakers said Friday that after she learned of Baker’s threat she “demanded” he seek counseling and launched an internal review of staff protocols to see “what was going on in the office.”Esty said the probe unearthed “a pattern of behavior that victimized many of the women on my staff,” prompting her to hire a replacement for Baker and amend existing employment policy. “How did I not know? How did I not see it?” Esty told lawmakers. “What I do know is that wasn’t an isolated incidence on Capitol Hill and that we can and must do better to ensure a safe environment for our employees.”Esty said that in light of Baker’s conduct, first reported by the Connecticut Post on Thursday, she would seek to work with lawmakers to foster safer working spaces for congressional staffers. “I can’t rewrite the past – but I can help right the future,” she wrote. “In the coming days and weeks, I’m interested in working with you on specific actions we can take to foster a better working environment here on Capitol Hill, capitalizing on the work that has already been done to ensure safe environments for our staff and taking the next steps to further strengthen these protections.”Esty's remarks come amid calls for her resignation. Republican officials blasted Esty's handling of the threat, with the National Republican Congressional Committee issuing a call for her to step down. “Elizabeth Esty orchestrated one of the most disturbing Washington cover-ups in recent memory," NRCC spokesman Chris Martin said in a statement Friday. "There is no place for someone who protects abusers in Congress, and she should resign immediately.” Manny Santos, the former Meriden Mayor and Republican challenging Esty for her seat, called the congresswoman's initial "silence" on Baker's threat "shocking" in urging her to step aside according to local outlets. The editorial board for the Hartford Courant, the largest publication in Connecticut, said Esty's actions were "appalling" in joining calls for her resignation. "Elizabeth Esty will likely spend the next several days defending her failure to take strong steps to protect a woman who’d been threatened and bullied — by a member of her own staff — by blaming the system and talking about the good she’s done in Congress," the board wrote Friday. "She shouldn’t. She should resign."
