A.w.N. | We sit around and around and debate and debate, and politic etc. If we are so concerned with carbon emissions why don't we work on putting this giant 100 year old chasm of coal fire out?

China wants cleaner air — without an environmental movement

China wants cleaner air — without an environmental movement

Even by China’s standards, it has been a contradictory couple of weeks on the environment.

First, a powerful documentary on air pollution, produced with official support, was released online and swiftly went viral, garnering more than 200 million views within days before being blocked by government censors. Today all references to the film have been scrubbed from the Chinese Internet, more effectively than the air ever could be.

Poultry plants in Alabama are getting set to self-regulate.

A very strange concept.

"If it's running 140 birds a minute, you can't put your hands in 'em when they're running that fast and look down inside that chicken and see if it has any feces contamination. And if it's been eviscerated by machinery, you know it's going to bust intestines."

California is pumping water that fell to Earth 20,000 years ago |

A.w.N. | This is precisely why I tell people to stop obsessing over global warming. It is nonsensical to think about the temperature in 100-1000 years while we are destroying the planet on a daily basis. Talking about global warming while California runs out of the most important thing on earth? Start acting now, everyone everywhere. There is no more time to think our children will fix what we have all done.

California is pumping water that fell to Earth 20,000 years ago

By now, the impacts of California’s unchecked groundwater pumping are well-known: the dropping water levels, dried-up wells and slowly sinking farmland in parts of the Central Valley.

But another consequence gets less attention, one measured not by acre-feet or gallons-per-minute but the long march of time.

As California farms and cities drill deeper for groundwater in an era of drought and climate change, they no longer are tapping reserves that percolated into the soil over recent centuries. They are pumping water that fell to Earth during a much wetter climatic regime – the ice age.
