Blasting at Acosta Deep Mine, Somerset County, PA
One of the blasts to open up the Acosta Deep Mine in Somerset County, PA, as seen from the front porch of a local family. They live 300 feet from the mine property, and 600 feet away from the mine pit. In total, they had to experience 61 blastings. Currently, another deep mine - Rustic Ridge #1 - is proposed to open less than an hour away from the Acosta Deep Mine. Mountain Watershed Association is working to appeal the permit for the mine to ensure that more families and waterways are not harmed by additional coal mining in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

Water Runs Dry in Wyoming Coal Country
As coal mines grew and oil and gas wells came to the Power River Basin, LJ Turner lost not only his ranch's abundant water, but also 6,000 acres he once leased as grazing land. Now his cattle herd is half what it was, calves near the coal mines die at alarming rates, and he has had to spend thousands of dollars drilling deeper and deeper wells. Over the last 40 years, Turner and some of his neighbors have paid a heavy price for the development of energy resources. So have American taxpayers everywhere. The federal government owns most of the coal, oil and gas in the ground, and it has fostered mining and drilling through a host of subsidies that permit fossil fuel corporations to privatize the benefits while socializing many of the costs.

Primitive Technology: Charcoal
I made a batch of charcoal using the mound method then stored it in baskets for later use. Charcoal is a fuel that burns hotter than the wood it's made from. This is because the initial energy consuming steps of combustion have taken place while making the charcoal driving off the volatile components of the wood (such as water and sap). The result is a nearly pure carbon fuel that burns hotter than wood without smoke and with less flame. Charcoal was primarily a metallurgical fuel in ancient times but was sometimes used for cooking too. To make the charcoal the wood was broken up and stacked in to a mound with the largest pieces in the center and smaller sticks and leaves on the out side. The mound was coated in mud and a hole was left in the top while 8 smaller air holes were made around the base of the mound. A fire was kindled in the top of the mound using hot coals from the fire and the burning process began (the hot coals are being poured in the top using a small pot at 2:38). The fire burned down the inside of the mound against the updraft. I reason that this is a better way to make charcoal as the rising flames have used up the oxygen and prevent the charcoal already made above them from burning while driving out even more volatiles . I watched the air holes at the base of the mound and when the fire had burned right up to each opening I plugged them with mud. Once all 8 holes had be sealed the hole in the top of the mound was sealed with mud and the mound left to cool. From lighting the mound to closing up the holes the whole process took about 4 hours. The next day when the mound was cool to the touch (this can take about 2 days sometimes) I opened the mound. The resulting charcoal was good quality. Some wood near the air entries had burned to ash though these were only small twigs and leaves. This is the reason small brush is put on the out side of the mound, to be burned preferentially to the larger wood on the inside thus protecting the large pieces of charcoal. The charcoal that was made was hard and shiny. When broken open it had the ray structure of the wood preserved. When moving the hand through it the charcoal sounded tinny, like coral on a beach being moved by waves. These are signs of good quality. Bad charcoal is soft, breaks easily and has a muffled sound. I intend to use the charcoal to produce hotter fires than I'm able to with wood alone. From my research, a natural draft furnace using wood (a kiln) can reach a maximum of 1400 c degrees whereas a natural draft furnace using charcoal can reach 1600 c degrees. Achieving high temperatures is necessary for changing material to obtain better technology (e.g. smelting ore into metal).

FNN: Trump and Miners Speak As POTUS Signs Bill Undoing Obama's Coal Mining Rule
Brought to you by Desert Diamond: http://ddcaz.com (AP) President Donald Trump has put the brakes on a regulation blocking coal mining debris from being dumped into nearby streams. Trump called the regulation a "job-killing rule" before he signed a measure to overturn it. Lawmakers from coal-mining states stood close by, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. and Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va. Several coal miners and energy company executives also attended the White House signing ceremony. Republicans and some Democrats argued that the rule could eliminate thousands of coal-related jobs. They said the rule also ignored dozens of existing federal, state and local regulations. The Interior Department said in December when it announced the rule that 6,000 miles of streams and 52,000 acres of forests would be protected.

Coal-mined areas are being restored to better than before mining says OSMRE
The U.S. Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement says in a 1996 video many the restored areas being more productive than those areas were prior to being mined. For more about OSM: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uq7YI8AHnQ To see the full 1969 video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaUPOITVzaY This is how OSM is really getting coal mined aread reclaimed: OSM began administering a federal program in Tennessee on 10/1/1984, as a result of the state revoking its primacy program that OSM had approved in 1982. OSM Knoxfille Field Office (KFO) 2010 report, covering Fiscal Year 2010 -- 10/2009 to 9/2010 (Except from pages 9-10) Abandoned Sites in Tennessee and Georgia are required to be inspected by KFO on a site specific inspection frequency inaccordance with the criteria and determination established in 30 C. F. R. 842.11 (e) and (f) (the abandoned rule). These sites have had some reclamation, but it is insufficient to satisfy the regulatory requirements for complete reclamation. The vast marjority of these sites have inspection frequencies of one complete inspection per calendar year. Due to a shortage of field inspectors [11], the KFO has found it necessary to prioritize its workload to ensure that sites with the greatest potential for adverse impacts (active sites) receive adequate inspections. The majority of abandoned sites have existed for greater than 20 years and have healed to a large extent with naturaly occurring vegetation and become stablized. Due to this workload and the resulting prioritization, KFO was unable to inspect a majority of abandoned site in FY2010. Eight complete inspections and one partial inspection were conducted of the 168 abandoned sites during FY 2010. During FY 2010 KFO conducted evaluations of thirty three permanent program bond forfeited sites to determine if natural vegetation processes had stablized these disturbances to meet the intent of SMCRA and to allow the removal of the sites from the inspectable units list (IUL). Thirteen of these sites were subsequently removed from the IUL because the disturbances were adequately stablized to met the intent of SMCRA. The remaining twenty sites were found to have deficiencies which prevented removal from the IUL. Evaluations of these sites included recommendations for corrective work to move these sites towards complete reclamation and removal from the IUL. (From Table 2, Inspectable Units, page 36) There are 300 inspectable units in Tennessee. (Each permit is an inspectable unit.) Of those, 121 are interim program (permits issued before the approval of the Tennesse state reguatory program effective August 10, 1982) and 179 are permanent program (permits issued after that date). There are 118 units that are active or in temporary cessation of mining; 168 (117 interim program and 51 permanent program). Only 14 of the 300 units have been fully reclaimed and are awaiting completion of the five-year vegetation success period. The total acreage under permit is 318,300 acres with permanent program permits being 282,000 acres of that total. ---- http://groups.google.com/group/bob-mooney/web/walk-away-reclamation (Excerpts) Of the 7,193 since 1980, most of the bond forfietures occurred in the 1980s (60%) and 1990s (31%); since 2005 there have been 203 forfeitures (3%) in 7 states -- IL(5), IN(4), KY(29), MD(12), PA(82), TN(11) and WV(60). Three states together have 70% of all the bond forfeitures occurring since 1980 -- KY (2,924 ),PA (1,020) and WV (1,117). Six other states account for another 26% -- AL(646), IN (215), OH (313), OK (178), TN (255) and VA (252). The remaining ones are in thirteen states. === On the OSM maintained Inspectable Units List for the Alabama state administered regulatory program there are 242 Inspectable Units which includes 48 Bond Forfeitures -- 20% of the total units -- many of which had permit expiration dates that were decades ago, even back 1984. The total permitted acreage of these Bond Forfeitures is 10,749 acres which is nearly 17 square miles. (10 or more those 48 Bond Forfeitures seem to have occurred after 2001.) http://www.osmre.gov/Reports/EvalInfo/2009/AL09-aml-reg.pdf - Alabama's inspectable units as of June 30, 2009, totaled 214, which includes 41 bond forfeitures; 4,910 arces were newly bonded and 440 acres were newly forfeited -- a ratio of one acre being forfeited for every 11 acres being bonded. From 1983 through 2008, bond forfeitures occurred on 15,034 of the 129,922 acres that had been permitted -- a permittee failure to perform reclamation rate of nearly 12 percent. http://www.osmre.gov/Reports/EvalInfo/2008/AL08-aml-reg.pdf - Alabama's inspectable units as of June 30, 2008, totaled 214, which includes 42 bond forfeitures; 3,618 arces were newly bonded and 726 acres were newly forfeited -- a ratio of one acre being forfeited for every 5 acres being bonded.

Public domain film from the Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The film was silent. I have added music created by myself using the Reaper Digital Audio Workstation and the Independence and Proteus VX VST instrument plugins. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, or reef, which forms the mineralized package of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal and oil shale, gemstones, limestone, and dimension stone, rock salt and potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extraction of any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, or even water. Mining of stone and metal has been done since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials, and final reclamation of the land after the mine is closed. The nature of mining processes creates a potential negative impact on the environment both during the mining operations and for years after the mine is closed. This impact has led to most of the world's nations adopting regulations to moderate the negative effects of mining operations. Safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have improved safety in mines significantly... Mining in the United States became prevalent in the 19th century, and the General Mining Act of 1872 was passed to encourage mining of federal lands. As with the California Gold Rush in the mid 19th century, mining for minerals and precious metals, along with ranching, was a driving factor in the Westward Expansion to the Pacific coast. With the exploration of the West, mining camps were established and "expressed a distinctive spirit, an enduring legacy to the new nation;" Gold Rushers would experience the same problems as the Land Rushers of the transient West that preceded them. Aided by railroads, many traveled West for work opportunities in mining. Western cities such as Denver and Sacramento originated as mining towns. As new areas were explored, it was usually the gold (placer and then load) and then silver that were taken first, with other metals often waiting for railroads or canals. Coarse gold dust and nuggets do not require smelting, is easy to identify and is easily transported. Modern period In the early 20th century, the gold and silver rush to the western United States also stimulated mining for base metals such as copper, lead, and iron as well as coal. Areas in modern Montana, Utah, Arizona, and later Alaska became predominate suppliers of copper to the world, which was increasingly demanding copper for electrical and households goods. Canada's mining industry grew more slowly than the United States due to limitations in transportation, capital, and U.S. competition; Ontario was the major producer of the early 20th century with nickel, copper, and gold. Meanwhile, Australia experienced the Australian gold rushes and by the 1850s was producing 40% of the world's gold, followed by the establishment of large mines such as the Mount Morgan Mine, which ran for nearly a hundred years, Broken Hill ore deposit (one of the largest zinc-lead ore deposits), and iron ore mines at Iron Knob. After declines in production, another boom in mining occurred in the 1960s and in the 21st century Australia remains a major world mineral producer. Into the 21st century, a globalized mining industry of large multinational corporations has arisen. Peak minerals and environmental impacts have also become a concern. Different elements, particularly rare earth minerals, have begun to increase in demand as a result of new technologies...

OSM expects its rulemaking to trim 7,000 coal mining jobs in 22 states
1/27/2011 - Peter Mail, a spokesman for the surface mining reclamation office, said the proposal's aim is "to better strike the balance between protecting the public and the environment while providing for viable coal mining." Mali said the document is the first working draft that was shared with state agencies, which are giving their comments on it. (More) http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=133248892 1/26/2011 - The Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement document says the agency's preferred rules would impose standards for water quality and restrictions on mining methods that would affect the quality or quantity of streams near coal mines. The office, a branch of the Interior Department, estimated that the protections would trim coal production to the point that an estimated 7,000 of the nation's 80,600 coal mining jobs would be lost. Production would decrease or stay flat in 22 states, but climb 15 percent in North Dakota, Wyoming and Montana. . . . West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection official Thomas Clarke told the Associated Press on Wednesday. "I've had OSM technical people who are concerned with stream impacts and outside contractors for OSM who are subcontractors on the EIS give me their opinion that the whole thing's a bunch of junk."

In the past 12 months the Office of Surface Mining has increased the number of oversight inspections to evaluate how each state is administering its regulatory program. This a clip from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6WSvVpdm-w ---- 12/27/2010 - http://www.register-herald.com/todaysfrontpage/x258589936/What-s-in-a-name-Mountaintop-removal-vs-mountaintop-development (Excerpt) "In my mind, mountaintop 'removal' implies the site is mined and then left barren, lifeless and flattened. This couldn't be further from the truth," said Chris Hamilton of the West Virginia Coal Association. He points to the mining permit requirement that forces miners to restore the mines to their approximate original contour or to configure the land for an "alternate use." Restoring the land occurs in about 90 percent to 95 percent of former surface mines, Hamilton said. "We rebuild the mountain peak, resculpting it to approximately as close as possible to the original premining topography of the land, then we reseed it with grasses and trees," Hamilton said. However, Vivian Stockman, an organizer for the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition, told West Virginia Public Broadcasting that a flyover of the southern West Virginia coalfields suggests little development on former surface mine sites. "If they're hoping to, you know, create shopping malls on some of these, I don't know where they're going to get all the shoppers," she said. "All the communities around these areas have been driven away." She added that the notion that West Virginia needs more flat land is a myth. "Back in 2002 we had some volunteers create some maps for us," she said. "There were just massive amounts of land that are not, in any way, shape or form, developed." Researchers from the Natural Resources Defense Council found that about 1.2 million acres and about 500 mountains were flattened by surface mining in central Appalachia. An aerial imagery analysis by NRDC found that about 90 percent of mountaintop removal sites were not converted to economic uses. Only about 4 percent of West Virginia and Kentucky mountaintops had been redeveloped, NRDC found. --- 11/18/2010 - Salazar Commends OSM Initiatives to Improve Oversight of State Surface Coal Mining Programs - http://www.doi.gov/news/pressreleases/Salazar-Commends-OSM-Initiatives-to-Improve-Oversight-of-State-Surface-Coal-Mining-Programs.cfm --- In June 2009, the U.S. Department of the Interior (Interior Department) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to reduce the harmful environmental impacts of coal mining in six states in central Appalachia. Through the MOU, the three agencies intend to strengthen oversight and regulation and minimize the adverse environmental consequences of mountaintop removal mining.

Fact checking Trump Coal mines open, prospects bleak
Trump Breaking News Network - Fact-checking Trump Coal mines open, prospects bleak As President Trump announced on Thursday that the U.S. would leave the Paris climate agreement, he repeatedly expressed unwavering support for the coal mining industry. Boosting coal production, bringing back coals jobs, and killing federal climate change programs have been among his top priorities since he took office. “The mines are starting to open up, having a big opening in two weeks, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, so many places,” Trump said in his Rose Garden speech. “A big opening of a brand new mine. It’s unheard of.” But across the country, coal mines aren’t starting to open as much as Trump suggests, and the industry faces a bleak future as cheap and abundant natural gas, wind and solar power outcompete coal. “The decline in U.S. coal production is the result of powerful technological and market trends that are unlikely to change anytime soon,” said Jonathan Koomey, an earth systems and energy lecturer at Stanford University. “Cheap natural gas, the rapid decline in the cost of solar and wind generation, and continued flat electricity demand make it next to impossible that U.S. coal production will significantly increase in coming years.” ----------------------------------------------------------- MAKE DONATIONS HERE http://trumpbreakingnewsnetwork.net/donation ----------------------------------------------------------- Source: http://www.salon.com/2017/06/07/fact-checking-trump-coal-mines-open-prospects-bleak_partner-2/ Please subscribe and share on your social media.

Activist Mike Roselle Continues Fight Against Destructive Coal Mining 2 of 2
The Struggle Against Mountaintop Removal: Leading Activist Mike Roselle Continues Fight Against Destructive Coal Mining The Environmental Protection Agency recently dealt a blow to the coal mining industry when it delayed hundreds of mountaintop coal mining projects for a new review of their environmental impact. But the EPA decision still leaves in place hundreds of existing permits for mountaintop removal. The group Climate Ground Zero has been leading protests and peaceful direct actions against the company Massey Energy to prevent mountaintop removal at Coal River Mountain in West Virginia. We speak with leading activist Mike Roselle of Climate Ground Zero. http://www.democracynow.org/2009/4/8/the_struggle_against_mountaintop_removal_leading

Citizen's Rights Denied -  Hamiltonban Township SGI 'Conditional Use' Application Hearing
Tuesday, February 17, 2014 - ISP/SGI Attorney Sean Delaney argues and obtains the agreement of township senior Solicitor Matthew Battersby, esq. to violate PA public hearing laws; subsequently denying concerned citizens and environmental groups their rights as interested parties to testify, enter evidence into the record and to cross examine the surface mining applicant, Specialty Granules Inc (formerly ISP minerals). Not a single word was spoken addressing the LNG (liquified natural gas) pipeline bisecting the property and crossing into headwaters of Tom's Creek (fresh water resource for the valley below) and only yards away from proposed blasting in the desired metabasalt mineral field during the 45 minute presentation by Wade Kemp and Ken Walton, Pres. SGI, both formerly of ISP Linden, New Jersey, now a multimillion EPA Superfund clean up site. Not one word. Aug., 2013: http://www.epa.gov/region02/superfund/npl/lcpchemicals/pdf/feasibilitystudy.pdf It was a heartbreaking moment for one of only four states in our great nation that proudly upholds a Constitutional Environmental Rights Amendment. An amendment that Matthew Battersby, esquire is old enough to remember the enactment and purpose of. From ConserveLand.org - The Pennsylvania Land Trust Association On May 18, 1971, Pennsylvania's voters by a four-to-one margin ratified what is now Article I, Section 27 of our state constitution--the Environmental Rights Amendment: The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Pennsylvania's public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including generations yet to come. As trustee of these resources, the Commonwealth shall conserve and maintain them for the benefit of all the people. Pennsylvania's Environmental Amendment by Franklin L. Kury Anyone born and raised in Pennsylvania since 1971 has come of age in a state that is politically and - to a large extent - economically committed to protecting our natural environment. Governors of both parties, legislators on both sides of the aisle and corporations of all types pride themselves on their contribution to environmental conservation. Our state has major statutes protecting the air, land and water from degradation. There are numerous non-profit organizations throughout the Commonwealth dedicated to some aspect of environmental protection. In short, the protectors and advocates for our state's environment are many and they are strong. But it has been like this for only a brief portion of our state's history. I recall - as a child - visiting my grandparent's home near a culm bank in Shenandoah and wondering why the creek in front of the house was so foul. And I recall wandering along Shamokin Creek near its entrance into the Susquehanna below Sunbury. The nickname for the creek was "Black Creek". The joke was that, if you fell into Black Creek, you need not worry about drowning. You would dissolve first. I later learned that the state didn't require sewage treatment on Shamokin Creek because it was believed that the sewage would be neutralized by the acid mine drainage from the abandoned mines in the watershed. Later yet, as an attorney searching a title to a property near Kulpmont, I found a deed in which the Pottsville and Reading Railroad Company reserved to itself the right to discharge the waste from its mining operations into Shamokin Creek. As an adult reading Pennsylvania history , the dark side of Pennsylvania's environmental history - which my prior personal experiences only touched in a small way - was painfully revealed. Pennsylvania, from the time of the Civil War through World War II, became the steel, railroad and coal producing colossus of the world. But the environmental price paid for that economic achievement was that we became the state with the most miles of stream polluted by acid mine drainage and landscape scarred by culm banks. In that period, environmental regulation only occurred in reaction to a disaster, such as the typhoid fever outbreak in 1905. The typhoid fever resulted from raw sewage discharges and brought about the first of the clean streams laws. Coal companies were specifically exempted from the 1905 law. Coal companies were also exempted or given favorable treatment under three later clean streams laws enacted in 1923,1937 and 1945. They were not brought fully under the law until 1965.

Water Issues lead to big expense for small b
By: Jackalyn Kovac CONFLUENCE, Pa. -- Hundreds of residents living in Confluence Borough and Draketown were given a boil water notice in October after the Department of Environmental Protection discovered a parasite in the water. Since the Oct. 17 order, the Borough Water Authority have changed the water system to well water, but a pump is needed to supply Draketown with water. After a meeting Thursday, it's the costs that are adding up that isn't sitting well with water customers. "We're on fixed income, we can't afford it and if it goes up any more we're gonna end up moving out," said Spring Illingworth. Since the changeover, many have complained about the water quality but officials maintain the water is safe. "When you turn the tap on the water comes out looking like skim milk. Now they say that it's safe to drink, it's not a problem or gonna make anyone sick, but people look at it they don't want to drink it," said Sandra Younkin, owner of Confluence House Bed and Breakfast. Officials say the discoloration is from CO2 in the water and boiling it will resolved the issue. Younkin is concerned the issue could affect business in a town that relies on tourism. "When a business is instructed to put this notice on your door that definitely turns people away," Younkin said. Officials say they have plans to fix the issue, but it will take time. The estimated cost for the pump is around $300,000. Extra utility costs imposed on the water authority could be passed on to customers. "Johnny [Tressler] said it's gonna go up and he doesn't know how much. I can't afford much more and others can't either," said Illingworth. The Borough said they are working closely with the DEP to get all the necessary permits to get the work done. They are also applying for grants to cover the cost of the project, however, the unexpected expense that go along with the project could be passed on to customers in Confluence and Draketown.

The Choice is Ours (2016) Official Full Version
https://www.thevenusproject.com Intro: 0:00 Part 1 6:16 Part 2 23:28 Part 3 47:03 Part 4 1:19:09 Produced/Directed by Roxanne Meadows and Joel Holt Script by Roxanne Meadows Editor Joel Holt, assisted by Roxanne Meadows & Nathanael Dinwiddie Original Score by Kat Epple This film series explores many aspects of our society. To rethink what is possible in our world, we need to consider what kind of world we want to live in. Although we refer to it as a civilization, it is anything but civilized. Visions of global unity & fellowship have long inspired humanity, yet the social arrangements up to the present have largely failed to produce a peaceful and productive world. While we appear to be technically advanced, our values and behaviors are not. The possibility of an optimistic future is in stark contrast to our current social, economic, and environmental dilemmas. The Choice Is Ours includes interviews with notable scientists, media professionals, authors, and other thinkers exploring the difficulties we face. Part I provides an introduction and overview of cultural & environmental conditions that are untenable for a sustainable world civilization. It explores the determinants of behavior to dispel the myth of “human nature” while demonstrating how environment shapes behavior. The science of behavior is an important - yet largely missing - ingredient in our culture. Part II questions the values, behaviors, and consequences of our social structures, and illustrates how our global monetary system is obsolete and increasingly insufficient to meet the needs of most people. Critical consideration of the banking, media, and criminal justice systems reveals these institutions for what they really are: tools of social control managed by the established political and economic elite. If we stay the present course, the familiar cycles of crime, economic booms & busts, war, and further environmental destruction are inevitable. Part III explains the methods and potential of science. It proposes solutions that we can apply at present to eliminate the use of non-renewable sources of energy. It depicts the vision of The Venus Project to build an entirely new world from the ground up, a “redesign of the culture”, where all enjoy a high standard of living, free of servitude and debt, while also protecting the environment. Part IV explains how it is not just architecture and a social structure that is in desperate need of change, but our values which have been handed down from centuries ago. They too need to be updated to our technological age, which has the potential to eliminate our scarcity-driven societies of today. Our problems are mostly of our own making, but we can still turn things around before the point of no return. It’s not too late for an optimistic outlook on the fantastic possibilities that lie before us. Jacque Fresco-Futurist, Industrial Designer, Social Engineer, Founder of The Venus Project Jeffrey A.

The Venus Project proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today's world.

Stop Titan Faces of the Community, Jen Gordon
Jen Gordon moved to Wilmington with her husband to escape the poor environment in their steel and coal-mining hometown of Johnstown, PA. They immediately fell in love with Wilmington, the Cape Fear River and the beaches. "We just knew that [Wilmington] was our own little garden of Eden and we could not wait to relocate," said Jen. After discovering that her husband had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, also called COPD or emphysema, Jen began to understand the importance of clean air. When she began reading up on the Titan issue, she was concerned that Titan's air emissions would be harmful for anyone with COPD and that children with asthma would also be at risk. "The alarm system went off," said Jen. Everyone's alarm system should be going off! Titan's draft air permit is weak and we have a chance to challenge it by submitting a comment to the Division of Air Quality until Oct. 31st.

Poland Develops Blue Coal: New fuel to cut toxic substance emissions
Polish scientists have developed a new fuel to help cut emissions in that country. The product is called 'blue coal' . It was created to have up to 10 percent fewer toxic substance emissions during combustion compared to regular coal. Researchers are now focusing on the use of 'blue coal' in ordinary house-holds in southern Poland. The study is mostly into the parameters of air pollution as compared to burning traditional coal when heating a home.

Iron, Steel and Oil - The Fight For Resources I THE GREAT WAR Week 18
Four months after the outbreak of the war, a new objective develops: the fight for the most valuable resources. The modern warfare and its war machines need one thing more than anything: Oil, iron, steel or cole can be a matter of life and death. The British advance into the Ottoman Empire and conquer the city Basra. Their goal is to secure their drilling facilities at the Arab Gulf.

Clean Energy vs Drill Baby Drill: Markey Opening Statement 3/17/2011
March 17, 2011 - Ranking Member Ed Markey's opening statement during the House of Representatives Natural Resources Committee hearing on March 17, 2011. Opening Statement Ranking Member Edward J. Markey Natural Resources Committee Oversight Hearing "Harnessing American Resources to Create Jobs and Address Rising Gasoline Prices: Domestic Resources and Economic Impacts" March 17, 2011 The reference in the title of this hearing to "Harnessing American Resources" is appropriate because we are in a horse race, Mr. Chairman. But rather than a blanket of roses at the finish line, the winner gets much more valuable prizes: lower unemployment and lower energy prices for American families. There are two horses in this race. The old horse, the one that has been running flat out for decades, is Drill-Baby-Drill. That horse is owned by a syndicate of the richest, international oil companies in the world and OPEC. The second horse, a much more recent entry in the race, is Clean Energy. That horse is owned by the American people, in partnership with researchers, investors, and companies developing new technologies to produce energy from wind, solar, geothermal, hydro-power, biomass and other renewable sources. Now, our Republican colleagues make plenty of claims about this race but their handicapping is highly suspect. First, they say they want a fair race and claim they would be happy to see both horses win. This is their "All of the Above" claim. But the truth is our Republican friends have taken a terrible risk; they have bet it all on just one horse. They have bet billions of dollars in subsidies and tax breaks -- not to mention betting our economy and our future -- all on Drill-Baby-Drill. In this committee alone, the scorecard on "All of the Above" stands at seven hearings featuring Drill-Baby-Drill and zero on clean energy. The Republican Majority also claims that the Obama Administration is pulling back the reins on Drill-Baby-Drill. The truth is, this Administration is riding that horse as hard and as fast as ever. Republicans want to debate permits or acres or ten-year projections but let's just cut to the chase: the amount of oil and natural gas produced from our public lands has gone up every year of the Obama Administration. Period. In fact, we have been riding this horse so long and so hard that we have left every other country far behind. Nobody has as much riding on Drill-Baby-Drill as we do. And lastly, our Republican colleagues claim that Drill-Baby-Drill can win this race. The truth is, Mr. Chairman, that despite the long head start, and despite the uneven field, and despite all the money we have riding on that horse, history has proven that Drill-Baby-Drill will never get us to the finish line. That horse has given us everything it has -- more barrels of oil, more cubic feet of natural gas, more acres under lease more permits to drill -- and no matter what we do -- no matter how many subsidies or tax breaks we give -- the price at the pump remains beyond our control. The harder we whip that horse, the farther away the finish line seems. At some point we have to face facts: the Republican energy policy amounts to nothing more than beating a dead horse. So what might happen if we got serious and let Clean Energy out of the gate? Well the first thing you need to know is that Clean Energy can catch up because it is incredibly fast. Just think about the speed of the arrival of the internet or the elapsed time between the rotary dial phone and the iPhone -- when this country puts its mind to something, the speed of innovation will take your breath away. And unlike Drill-Baby-Drill, the longer we let Clean Energy run, the cheaper it gets. There is a Moore's Law for solar that says each time we double production, the cost of a solar panel drops 18%. The investment we make in this horse stands to be the best bet we have ever made. And most important, Clean Energy can win this race, Mr. Chairman. While Drill-Baby-Drill runs in place, clean energy is moving forward. This horse will create new jobs -- American jobs developing American technology. And this horse can cut energy prices by reducing our oil imports. If we unleash Clean Energy -- let her out of the starting gate -- we will find ourselves in the Winner's Circle in no time. I yield back.

Ed Smith is the "no-CWIP" Coordinator with the Missouri Coalition for the Environment. The Missouri Coalition for the Environment works to protect and restore the environment through education, public engagement, and legal action. The Coalition began its work in 1969 as St. Louis's first independent citizens' group created to address a broad range of environmental policy issues. Transcript of Slides: Risks of Nuclear Power by Ed Smith Businesses should not be allowed to put private profits ahead of our safety. Nuclear Industry Myths vs. Reality MYTH Cheap Clean Safe Myth #1: Nuclear Is Cheap Construction Boondoggle 1970's: Wall Street begins to bail Construction delays + cost overruns 1/2 of all U.S. nuclear projects never completed Billions wasted in unfinished projects What Does That Mean For MO? 1975: MO PSC approves upfront rate-hikes 1976: Ballot initiative outlaws PSC rules 1977: Ameren suspends building Callaway 2 2009: State leg. does not repeal no-CWIP 2011: State leg. does not partially repeal no-CWIP 2012: Ameren will be back -- WHY? "Construction" In The U.S.A. Georgia 2 reactor project: AP 1000 model $8.3 billion in federal loan guarantees $14 billion original cost estimate Florida FPL and Progress Florida estimate 2 AP 1000s at $18-$22.5 billion South Carolina Same scenario as Florida French Owned Areva: EPR Projects Olkiluoto, Finland 4 years behind schedule $4.2 billion over budget Delays and further cost overruns still likely Flamanville, France 4 years behind schedule $3.2 billion over budget 8.24.2011 -- French Nuclear Safety Authority finds EPR in "non-compliance" with construction code The Gift That Keeps On Taking Cost between $655 million to $1 billion/reactor High level wastes remain on site Pay for millions of years of security Site never usable again Decommissioning Example San Onofre cost $90 million to build in 1966 Decommissioning costs = $805.6 million Const. adjusted for inflation = $606.4 million Irradiated Nuclear Waste Storage Long term repository does not exist - $1 billion: Amount DOE paid out in settlements - Justice Dept. $168 million defending DOE All taxpayer dollars Myth #2: Nuclear Is Clean Uranium Is Dirty Mining and milling Uranium on Navajo lands Abandoned mines and tailings Tailings retain 85% of ores original radioactivity Wind blown dust contains radionuclide's 140 million tons of tailings scattered in West U.S. MYTH #3: Nuclear Is Safe Major Accidents Three Mile Island -- 1979 -- PA Church Rock -- 1979 -- NM Chernobyl -- 1986 -- Ukraine Fukushima -- 2011 -- Japan Church Rock, NM Uranium tailings accident Dam burst releasing: - 1,100 tons of radioactive mill wastes - 90 million gallons of contaminated liquid Rio Puerco River contaminated to this day Thyroid Cancer After Chernobyl images Children of Chernobyl images Fukushima images Is Ameren Putting Us At Risk For Corporate Profits? Cut $5 million from energy efficiency budget Undermined Prop C rules from 2008 Coal ash landfill in floodplain Rates increased $600 million since 2007 Fought energy efficiency legislation Support repeal of no-CWIP for nuclear power

Owyhee 68 Benefit Auction
Auction raises Money to Appeal Federal Grazing Decision Melba—South Mountain Ranch co-owner Matt Duckett donated a registered Angus heifer at Tuesdays auction at South Mountain designed to raise money for litigation in the Owyhee 68 case. More than $13-thousand dollars were raised, that money according to organizers will help fund a legal battle over the BLM's plans to reduce public grazing land. "I'm not afraid of the BLM," said Murphy rancher Paul Nettleton, "Im confident we can beat them again." Nettleton and neighbor Tim Lowry beat the BLM in a decade long water rights case seven years ago. "If we don't fight this, it could destroy ranching not only in Owyhees but across the west," he added. It all started 15 years ago when Federal District Court Judge Lynn Winmill ordered the BLM's Owyhee field office in southwest Idaho to rewrite 68 grazing permits. The radical environmental group Western Watersheds Project argued that permits were not up to NEPA standards. The new permits were issued last year and Ranchers like Tim Lowry in Jordan Valley and Nettleton found that their grazing allotments were reduced by half. "We might have to reduce our herd because we'll be feeding more and the cost of feed is up," said Tim Lowry. "It'll drive a lot of us out of business." The Owyhee and Idaho Cattle Association are appealing the grazing reductions along with the Western Watersheds Project. The proposed reductions won't go into effect until the appeals are reviewed. At the South Mountain Ranch outside of Melba, ranchers bought and sold the Duckett Angus heifer three times to fellow ranchers passionate about the cause. The 68 permits in the Owyhees affect more than a hundred thousand acres of land and tens of millions of dollars into the Idaho Economy each year.

http://ThoriumRemix.com/ Thorium is an abundant material which can be transformed into massive quantities of energy. To do so efficiently requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kind we use today- Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses chemically stable molten salts. Such a reactor is called a "Molten Salt Reactor". Many different configurations are possible. Some of these configurations can harness Thorium very efficiently. This video explores the attributes of Molten Salt Reactors. Why are they compelling? And why do many people (including myself) see them as the only economical way of fully harnessing ALL our nuclear fuels... including Thorium. This video has been under development since 2012. I hope it conveys to you why I personally find Molten Salt Reactors so compelling, as do the many volunteers and supporters who helped create it. Much of the footage was shot by volunteers.

Leadville Mine Drainage Tunnel Water Treatment Plant Pilot Testing
The Leadville Mine Drainage Tunnel was purchased by the Bureau of Reclamation from the Bureau of Mines in 1959. Originally, the tunnel was a potential source of water for the Fryingpan-Arkansas Project. However, poor water quality required that the water be treated before it could be released to the Arkansas River. As a result, Reclamation designed and constructed the LMDT Treatment Plant. It has been safely and effectively treating water released from the tunnel to the Arkansas River since its commissioning in 1992. The existing treatment plant removes metal contaminants, such as iron, manganese, zinc, and cadmium from water that is discharged from the tunnel. Since 1992, water treatment technologies have evolved and new treatment technologies may provide a better alternative than the current treatment process provides. During the Spring of 2018, Reclamation will study new processes for treating water from the tunnel to determine whether new technologies or combinations of processes might offer increased efficiency and optimization to treat the tunnel water in the future. In addition, Reclamation will be investigating the potential of adding a plug in the mine drainage tunnel just below the pump installed by EPA in 2008. This investigation will occur during the summer and fall of 2018. Reclamation is fully committed to ensuring that the Leadville Mine Drainage Tunnel Treatment Plant will continue to treat the water from the LMDT and maintain a long-term, on-going commitment to mitigate groundwater contamination and release clean water to the Arkansas River headwaters.
