Russell Roberts's curator insight, August 20, 12:21 PM

Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa has joined his fellow mayors across the state, Governor Neil Abercrombie, and the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) in launching the "Aloha + Challenge."  The commitment "sets clear targets' in six sustainable areas to reach by the year 2030. Areas include:  the establishment of 70% clean energy; doubling local food production; improving the management of natural resources; waste reduction; smart growth; and the creation of "green jobs".  I'm glad to see progress being made to reduce our dependence on imported food and fuel.  We must learn to depend on ourselves.  Aloha, Russ.

The Toledo Water Crisis Won’t Be the Last

The Toledo Water Crisis Won’t Be the Last | sustainablity | Scoop.it
The recent water crisis in Toledo, Ohio is not an isolated incident, and it won’t be the last. As the annual and increasingly severe algae blooms hit Lake Erie this year, levels of the toxin mycrocystin reached such high levels that the City of Toledo ordered a tap water ban because the toxin can cause diarrhea, vomiting or impaired liver function. Residents were ordered not to drink the water or use it for cooking, brushing their teeth or pets.
