2. Locking - not Latest Breaking News

This was published on Dec 8th,and is also an analysis piece, rather than news. LBN rules say articles should have been published in the last 12 hours, and should be news, not analysis or commentary.

A good place for this would be the Environment and Energy group, or Good Reads or General Discussion.

Thank you.
