Sometimes As is used as "Since"

As and since are used when the reason is already well known and is therefore usually less important. The as or since clause is usually (Not always) placed at the beginning of the sentence:

That's why you're confused. In the text As is used as since. The second As doesn't have anything to do with the first. They're not using it for comparison.
