#Money used to check for leaks at #landfill near Lake Marion running out ~ #Environment at risk! #ToxicWaste | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
With pollution monitoring funds drying up at a notorious Lake Marion landfill, state regulators are developing a plan that could depend on taxpayers to help replenish the money, which is needed to help prevent a leak.
Marian Locksley's insight:

The landfill site was established nearly four decades ago from an old kitty litter mine. It is located just a few football fields from Lake Marion, one of South Carolina’s most popular recreational reservoirs.


It once took toxic waste from across the Southeast before closing in 2000 after a court fight.

The sardine fishing boat Eileen motored slowly through moonlit waters from San Pedro to Santa Catalina Island, its weary-eyed captain growing more desperate as the night wore on.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Melin's research indicates that nursing sea lion mothers could not find fatty sardines, so they fed on less nutritious market squid, rockfish and hake and produced less milk for their young in 2012. The following year their pups showed up on the coast in overwhelming numbers, stranded and emaciated.

#Iceland to Ship #WhaleMeat to #Japan via #Norway ~ #AnimalWelfareInstitute #StopTheirPassage

Documents obtained by the Washington DC-based Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) show that Norway has begun to play a key role in Iceland’s massive exports of whale meat to Japan in defiance of international agreements.

The Icelandic whaling firm Hvalur hf has run into difficulties getting shipments of whale meat to Japan; in early July 2013, six containers of fin whale meat from Iceland, destined for Japan on board the Cosco Pride container ship, became the focus of a peaceful protest by Greenpeace activists at the German port of Hamburg. Authorities removed the containers from the ship, which sailed on without them.

#Save #Whales #Dolphins ~ Buy American #NRDC

#Save #Whales #Dolphins ~ Buy American  #NRDC | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
NRDC: Americans unwittingly consume foreign fish or fish products caught using techniques that needlessly kill a multitude of marine mammals each year.
Marian Locksley's insight:

More than 650,000 whales and dolphins are killed or seriously injured every year by foreign fishing fleets.

Countries exporting fish to America are supposed to prove they use safer methods.

But for decades the US has failed to enforce this law.


That means whales and dolphins are at risk, and American fishermen who invest in safer methods have a disadvantage in the marketplace.
