The latest setbacks have increased the difficulty for developers of billions of dollars worth of pipeline projects in getting needed permits and community support.

Germany is determined to expand its attempts to regulate online hate speech even as Facebook <FB.O> promises to do more to clean up its site after a global advertiser boycott, with politicians saying the issue is too important to leave to self-regulation. A German law in force since 2018 demands that social networks delete or block obviously criminal content within 24 hours of receiving a complaint or face a hefty fine. The legislation has been closely watched as concerns mount globally about hateful posts, but it has had a limited impact so far and has not stopped online hate speech in Germany, blamed for helping to fuel a wave of racist attacks in the last year.
U.S. tech giants face a reckoning over how Hong Kong's security law will reshape their businesses, with their suspension of processing government requests for user data a stop-gap measure as they weigh options, people close to the industry say. While Hong Kong is not a significant market for firms such as Facebook, Google and Twitter, they have used it as a perch to reach deep-pocketed advertisers in mainland China, where many of their services are blocked. "These companies have to totally reassess the liability of having a presence in Hong Kong," Charles Mok, a legislator who represents the technology industry in Hong Kong, told Reuters.
Ryanair has reached a deal with cabin crew that will mean no job losses at the budget carrier, according to union bosses. Unite praised the airline’s “constructive” approach that will mean cabin staff take pay cuts for at least three years in return for saving jobs. The move is in contrast to British Airways, which wants to axe 12,000 of its entire staff - almost a quarter of the workforce. Ryanair had warned in May that 3,000 positions could go as it faced a collapse in air travel because of coronavirus. Last week the airline reported that passenger numbers for June were down 97pc to just 400,000.
The youngest workers in the country are facing the toughest blow from the lockdown recession as they are the least likely to be able to work from home, while businesses in the services sector are slashing hiring at the fastest rate. Just 30pc of 16 to 24-year olds were working from home in April, the Office for National Statistics said, far below the rate for other age groups. Collapsing hiring and falling wages underline the pressure on Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor, to improve the prospects of the younger generation. It is key for their financial future and that of the nation, as prolonged periods of unemployment for those leaving school and university can hit their careers and earnings for many years to come. By contrast those with more work experience are far more likely to have jobs that allow them to work remotely.
