New report also predicts significant sea level rise
By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

There is some more bad climate news for Costa Rica's coasts. A panel of arctic experts predicts worldwide sea level rise in the next 90 years of from .9 to 1.6 meters.  That's from 35.5 inches to 63 inches.

Such an increase would inundate much of the current coast and radically change the country's geography.

The estimate is far greater that the one by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which predicted a maximum sea level rise during the next 100 years of about 1 to 4 inches.

A 2009 estimate from the University of Colorado said the increase in sea level could be at least 20 centimeters (about 8 inches).

The estimate is much less than those by the University of Oregon and the University of Toronto which predicted that if global warming someday causes the West Antarctic Ice Sheet to collapse, as many experts believe it could, the resulting sea level rise could average between 16 and 17 feet and may be as much as 21 feet in some areas.

A European study said two years ago that coastal residents here could face sea level increase of between 75 and 190 centimeters by 2100.

Converted to the U.S. measurement system, the rise would be between 29.5 and 74.8 inches. That would inundate much of the existing beach properties, at least those held in concessions in maritimes zones.

The spit that holds Puntarenas centro would vanish under water.

The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional has been studying the problem but the issue still has not risen to the attention of politicians.

The new report comes from the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme, which is holding a conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, this week.

Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme graphic
These readings from satellites show the average sea level rise in millimeters over a decade.

The organization has been monitoring the Arctic since 1991. It reports: "The warming of the
Arctic, due to climate change, has been twice as high as the world average since 1980. Surface air temperatures in the Arctic since 2005 have been higher than for any five-year period since measurements began around 1880. Arctic summer temperatures have been higher in the past few decades than at any time in the past 2000 years.

The Arctic mountain glaciers and ice caps are projected to lose between 10 percent and 30 percent of their total mass by 2100, and the Arctic Ocean is predicted to be nearly ice free in summer during this century, likely within the next 30 to 40 years, the scientists reported at the start of their sessions.

The report outlined a feedback mechanism that increased melting in the arctic: "The fact that highly reflective snow and ice surfaces are diminishing means that darker land or ocean surfaces are revealed that absorb more of the sun’s energy, and therefore enhances warming of the Earth’s surface and the air above."

The full report is due to be presented today. The scientists, however, say candidly that high uncertainty surrounds estimates of future global sea level.

In her state of the state speech prepared for delivery Sunday President Laura Chinchilla spoke about aspects of environmental security. But the topic of sea level rise was not one of them.

Judicial police identify
suspects in Jacó murder


By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

Judicial police have identified two Russians who are suspects in the torture murder of a U.S. citizen in Jacó Sunday.

The two men were detained shortly after the victim's girlfriend gave the alarm when she returned to the couple's luxury home in the center of Jacó about 7 p.m. One of the suspects was found still inside the home when police arrived.

The suspects were identified by the last names of Karasev and Slovora, according to the Poder Judicial. Although a U.S. citizen, the victim, identified as Pierre Beauvais, also was Russian by birth, friends said.

Prosecutors asked a judge late Tuesday that the men be remanded to prison for six months preventative detention while the investigation continues.  One of the suspects also is believed to be a naturalized U.S. citizen.

Police found the victim inside the home bound hands and feet. He also had a plastic bag around his head in an execution style popularized by television shows. Although police said the man was smothered, friends reported that there was considerable blood at the scene. Beauvais, was 71 and had lived in Jacó for years.

The suspects are facing robbery allegations in addition to a murder count. However, agents still are uncertain as to the motive for the crime. Friends speculate that the intruders planned to remove much of the furniture and other goods within the home but they were stopped by the unexpected arrival of the girlfriend.

Cartago drug organization
broken up, agents report


By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

Anti-drug police conducted 12 raids Tuesday and announced the arrest of 12 persons in an investigation of a marijuana and cocaine ring based in Cartago.

Raids were by the Policía de Control de Drogas in El Carmen, Aguacaliente, Manuel de Jesús and Taras in Cartago. Raids also took place in San Pedro and Tibás. Three women were among those detained.

Police said they became aware of the organization when they arrested a couple last year. They said that the organization broken up Tuesday was the supplier for the couple. Arrests began April 20, police said.

Container dock project surmounts another legal obstacle
By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

The proposed super container terminal at Moín has passed another legal hurdle, according to the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes.

The ministry reported Tuesday that the Contraloría General de la República rejected an appeal by the union representing workers at the government docks in Limón and Moín.

The $1 billion terminal project also has survived a legal suit brought to the Tribunal Contencioso Administrativo by the Cámara Nacional de Bananeros, which feared higher costs.

The Dutch firm APM Terminals has a contract to build the container docks as a 30-year concession.

The project is backed by the central government and the Junta de Administración Portuaria y de Desarrollo
Económico de la Vertiente Atlántica.

The ministry said that the dock workers union did not have sufficient direct interest to challenge the project, said the ministry. Nevertheless, it is widely believed that the new concession will be more modern and more competitive than the current public docks and will capture a lot of business.

That would be fine with public officials because the feisty dockworkers union has staged many slowdowns and declines to work on some national holidays.

APM Terminals has three years to build the first stage of the docks. As container traffic increases, the company is committed to enlarge the facility, which will be one and a half times as big as Parque la Sabana.

The finished port will have room for five container ships at once. Construction is supposed to start in 2013.


Marine commerce facing threats by pirates on both coasts
By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

Now it is pirates.

Officials report that seagoing crooks have invaded and robbed at least six ships in the Limón harbor.

The usual procedure is to sneak on the boats in the early morning and threaten the crews with weapons.

The pirates seem to be taking their cue from several gangs who have been taking over and robbing ships on the Pacific coast.

One group was active in the lower part of the Río Grande de Térraba in southwestern Costa Rica. The Juzgado Penal de Osa has extended the preventative detention for three men who are believed to be members of that group. They were detained Aug. 8 and have been in prison since.
The three men, identified by the last names of Centeno Marchena, González Morales and Arias Calvo. were surprised by judicial police in a small dwelling in Boca Brava, some 15 kilometers from Ciudad Cortés, said the Poder Judicial.

The armed gang approached boats on the river and ordered their occupants to deliver merchandise, motors and gasoline, said judicial agents.

Further up the Pacific coast there are other pirate gangs at work. A tourist ship was taken over by bandits while it was docked near Quepos. The pirates can lose themselves quickly in the small streams and inlets along the coast. There have been cases reported in Puntarenas, too.

The gang in Limón appears to consist of perhaps a dozen men who board seagoing freighters while they are at anchor in the Limón harbor. Boats tied up at docks are targets, too.

Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo graphic


Two fuel depots will be modernized to speed delivery

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

The Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo says it will modernize its fuel terminals at El Alto de Ochomogo in Cartago and in La Garita in Alajuela.

Bids will be sought this month with the expectation that the contracts will be awarded before the end of the year. The
company, the nation's monopoly petroleum vendor, said that it expected both terminals to be in operation by 2013.

Plans call for four loading stations at Ochomogo and La Garita. The projects will reduce loading time for the largest tankers from 50 to 20 minutes because the flow would double from 300 to 600 gallons a minute, the company said.



Consumer price index shows small increase over March

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

Household inflation in April was .15 percent, less than two-tenths of a percent, according to the Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Censo, which keep track of changes in the consumer price index.

The institute said that the accumulated inflation in consumer prices from January to April was 1.53 percent, which is lower than the 2.63 percent of the same period last year.
The price index is based on 292 goods and services. In April 53 percent increased over March and 33 percent decreased. Some 14 percent stayed the same, said the institute.

Vegetables showed a decrease, but transportation was higher because of the increased price of motor fuel.

Other sources noted that the price of alcoholic beverages had increased as much as 10 percent, but that was not noted by the institute.



Traffic officer is victim of shooting at his Naranjo home

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

A woman in Naranjo Tuesday night took the service pistol of her live-in companion and shot him, said officials. He was hospitalized in critical condition.

The man is a Tránsito officer. He was identified by the Poder Judicial by the last names of Jiménez Salas. The
woman was identified by the last names of Castillo Casanova.

Prosecutors did not seek to put the woman in prison. Instead prosecutors asked a judge to order the woman to stay away from the man and sign in with them every 15 days. The pair lived together but it was not clear if they were husband and wife.

Harper gets a majority,
as New Democrats surge


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Canada has re-elected the conservative government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.  The Conservative Party won 167 seats in Canada’s House of Commons.  The New Democratic Party secures official opposition status with 102.  

The results of the five-week election campaign brought the biggest surprise in recent Canadian memory.

The opposition Liberal Party was decimated, landing in third spot behind the New Democratic Party.  The Liberals have never had such a disastrous result since the founding of Canada.

Since the start of the campaign, Harper, who has previously only won two minority governments, finally has a full majority.   Canada has seen four elections in the last seven years.  The Conservative majority now most likely means four more years until another election.

Despite his victory, the Conservatives did not win most of the popular vote.  Speaking to his supporters in Calgary, Conservative leader and Prime Minister Stephen Harper says his party must now take its majority to parliament, but not alienate those who did not vote for him.

"Canadians made this critically important decision today, friends.  They chose hope, hope, unity of purpose and a strong Canada.  And, because Canadians chose hope, we can now begin to come together again.  As we must, as Canadians, as fellow citizens, friends and neighbors, for our part, we are intensely aware, that we are and must be the government of all Canadians, including those who did not vote for us,” said Harper.

Despite not winning government, New Democratic Party supporters are jubilant.  They have nearly tripled the previous number of members in Canada’s House of Commons and are now the official opposition.

New Democratic Party leader Jack Layton says he will meet with Harper in the next few days with hopes to bring more respect to debate in the Canadian parliament.

"We’re committed to making progress carefully and prudently, a practical step at a time — just as we have every time our party has assumed office in this country," said Layton.

Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff even lost his own seat in a Toronto area race but said he will remain the party’s leader.

Bloc Quebecois party, which is dedicated to Quebec separating from Canada, is now eliminated from official status in Canada’s House of Commons. 

The Green Party made a major breakthrough, with the win of leader Elizabeth May.  The environmentally minded party put nearly all its resources in getting May elected in her race on Vancouver Island, despite running candidates in all of Canada’s 308 constituencies.

Discussion now moves to the possible merger of the Liberals and New Democrats. More than 60 percent of Canadians did not vote for Harper or his Conservative Party, splitting the vote in many races between the Liberals and the New Democratic candidate.

Governor challenges Chávez

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

The governor of Venezuela's Miranda state says he plans to run for the presidency next year, challenging President Hugo Chávez.

Gov. Henrique Capriles made the announcement Tuesday, saying he wants to be "president of all Venezuelans."  Capriles also said he would seek the endorsement of a divided opposition to challenge President Chavez, who has been in office since 1999 and is seeking a new six-year term. 

An opposition primary is scheduled for February 2012, with the presidential election set for later in the year. 

Because of a constitutional amendment passed in 2009, there are no term limits for Venezuelan elected officials.
