In Trump's First Year, EPA Is Fining Polluters 49 Percent Less

In Trump's First Year, EPA Is Fining Polluters 49 Percent Less | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it
The first year of Donald Trump’s presidency has seen a measurable difference in the way the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been holding polluters accountable compared to the past 25 years. Under Scott Pruitt, the EPA has collected, on average, 49 percent less in civil penalties against violators of federal environmental laws than in the first year of the previous three administrations, according to a new report from the nonprofit Environmental Integrity Project. “President Trump’s dismantling of the EPA means violators are less likely to be caught, making illegal pollution cheaper,” said Eric Schaeffer, executive director of the Environmental Integrity Project and former director of EPA’s Office of Civil Enforcement. “The president’s ‘law and order’ agenda apparently wasn’t intended for fossil fuel companies and other big polluters.”

China Is Financing a Petrochemical Hub in Appalachia. Meet its Powerful Backers. | Steve Horn | DeSmogBlog.com

China Is Financing a Petrochemical Hub in Appalachia. Meet its Powerful Backers. | Steve Horn | DeSmogBlog.com | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it

Over the past year, oil and gas industry plans to build a petrochemical refining and storage hub along the Ohio River have steadily gained traction. Proponents hope this potential hub, which would straddle Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, and Kentucky, could someday rival the industrial corridor found along the Gulf Coast in Texas and Louisiana.

Those plans center around creating what is known as the Appalachian Storage Hub, which received a major boost on November 9 during a trade mission to China attended by President Donald Trump and U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. At that trade mission, also attended by Chinese President Xi Jinping, the China Energy Investment Corp. announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to invest $83.7 billion into the planned storage hub over 20 years. For comparison, West Virginia's gross domestic product (GDP) in 2016 was $72.9 billion.

Though called the Appalachian Storage Hub as a broad-sweeping term, in practice the hub could encompass natural gas liquids storage, a market trading index center, a key pipeline feeding epicenter, and a petrochemical refinery row. Its prospective development has been spurred by the current construction of a $6 billion petrochemical refining facility in Pennsylvania owned by Shell Oil.

Not A Drop Good To Drink

By Andrew J. Rotherham, Opinion Contributor | Jan. 9, 2018, at 1:00 p.m.

 
Not a Drop Good to Drink
 
 In 1970, Gil Scott-Heron penned "Whitey On the Moon" about public investments. Sample line: "No hot water, no toilets, no lights (but Whitey's on the moon)."

He could have written a doozy about high-priced "raw water."

Raw water is unfiltered and untreated water – in other words straight from the source. And raw water is hot. That's the takeaway from a New York Times account of Silicon Valley's growing interest in the raw water business.

If you're saying to yourself, "wait, isn't raw water what kills people all over the world?" you're on the right track. There are so many things wrong with this from the trivial to deeply symbolic.

Sur l'île d'Okinawa, les toilettes publiques sont sans doute les plus insolites du monde

Sur l'île d'Okinawa, les toilettes publiques  sont sans doute les plus insolites du monde | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it

Le photographe japonais Okinawa Soba partage sur Flickr les photos des toilettes publiques les plus insolites qui croisent son chemin.


(...) Sachez qu’au Japon, c’est une véritable institution. Plus précisément sur l’île d’Okinawa sur laquelle se trouvent sans doute les toilettes publiques les plus insolites au monde.


Connu sous le pseudonyme “Okinawa Soba” sur Flickr, Rob est un photographe qui vit depuis près de 43 ans sur l’île d’Okinawa. Cette île qui appartient à la préfecture éponyme du Japon et qui comporte plus d’1,3 million d’habitants est aussi connue pour ses toilettes publiques insolites. Car oui, à Okinawa, ne vous attendez pas à trouver un simple bâtiment sobre avec des toilettes et un lavabo classique.


Dans ses différents clichés, le photographe nous fait découvrir des bâtiments absolument improbables : des toilettes publiques en forme de poisson, de crabe, de crayon ou même encore de fruit, c’est le genre d’édifice qu’il faut s’attendre à découvrir sur cette île qui a bien des secrets à vous révéler.


En tout cas, on adore l’idée qui prouve, une fois de plus, que la créativité est partout.

We Are Drowning in Plastic, and Fracking Companies Are Profiting | Wenonah Hauter | Yes! Magazine | AlterNet.org | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it

We are choking the planet in plastic. Everything from wasteful water bottles to grocery shopping bags are polluting our waterways, and endangering marine life and the natural environment. It’s fair to say that even the most casual news consumer has probably encountered a Facebook post, TV report, or radio segment about the garbage patches in the Pacific Ocean.

But what’s less well-known is what is fueling this plastics binge: fracking. As the Guardian recently reported, in less than a decade, tens of billions of dollars have been invested in creating new manufacturing sites around the world to turn fossil fuels into resin pellets used to manufacture plastic products. The companies profiting off this surge in plastics are contributing to a growing climate crisis while generating mountains of plastic garbage.

Lissa Lucas traveled the 100 miles from her home in Cairo, West Virginia to the state capitol in Charleston Friday to testify against an oil and gas industry sponsored bill (HB 4268) that would allow companies to drill on minority mineral owners’ land without their consent.

Lucas began to testify to the House Judiciary Committee, but a few minutes in, her microphone was turned off.

And Lucas was dragged out of the room.

Lucas is running for the House of Delegates from Ritchie County, which has been overrun by the fracking industry.

Pollutions par les Biomédias

Pollutions par les Biomédias | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it

Sylvain Rotillon's curator insight, February 15, 11:41 AM

Le travail mené par l'association Surfrider, très active sur le suivi des pollutions en milieu marin , mais aussi en amont sur les cours d'eau, pointe sur un type de pollutions plastiques peu connu, celui des biomédias, supports de cultures utilisés dans les stations d'épuration. Dans les stations sur culture fixe, on reconstitue le principe d'un sol à travers lequel l'eau va circuler, les bactéries présentes traitant la pollution. Ces bactéries sont fixées sur des supports, en bien plus grand nombre que dans un vrai sol pour traiter des eaux usées.

Ces supports qui ne devraient pas sortir de l'enceinte des stations se retrouvent finalement dans les rivières et sur le littoral, dans les océans. Les observations des membres de l'association ont mis en évidence cette forme de pollution. elle s'appuie sur la participation des citoyens et la cartographie de ces pollutions pourrait permettre de mieux cerner les origines et de trouver des moyens pour traiter à la source ces biomédias loin d'être biodégradables. Au sein de la vaste question des pollutions par les plastiques, identifier les sources pour trouver des solutions est nécessaire.
