Solar Desalination with Brine Recovery Salt Pans Could Stop Desert Water Wars - by Replenish Inland Aquifers
If solar powered desalination plants had brine recovery salt pan attachments as in Point Paterson, Austrailia they would be a better option than trying to heist water from already overburdened aquifers as the SNWA has attempted for decades. The desalination plant of the future would be solar and wind powered and use the heat of the desert sun to evaporate the salt from the brine in salt pans creating zero waste. If our society can justify spending billions on unmanned CIA drones to bomb funer...

Water Use Concerns Flood Frac Meetings and DOGGR Workshops Statewide - by Tomas DiFiore
Steam Injection Enhanced Oil Recovery Methods Might Use More Water Than Fracking Admittedly, knowledge not to scale; as the numbers of wells in 'mature' oil fields that employ Steam Injection EOR efforts in the State of California and it's major oil and gas producing counties is not tracked and aggregated and thus is not available to Agencies or the public. 60 Million Gallons Turned To Steam Per Day - Compared to the water usage of a single family of four, in a 3 bedroom household, that's ro...

America's Resources For America... The Oil & Gas Revolution Short Term Shale Bubble - by Tomas DiFiore
Shale development is not about job creation. Optimistic job estimates by industry have relied heavily on unrealistic multipliers to claim vast numbers of indirect jobs. Direct industry related jobs (for onshore and offshore oil and gas) have accounted for less than 1/20 of 1% of the overall U.S. labor market since 2003, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This cannot be construed as game changing job creation.

60 Million Gallons per day Converted To Steam & Injected - by Tomas DiFiore
Hydraulic Fracturing, Steam Injection, Full Steam Flood Programs - oil and gas extraction already use vast quantities of water in California. Water from the California Aqueduct, turned to steam is injected into the earth. More horizontal wells will expand consumption. See video: “We pump 1.4 million barrels of water converted to steam into the ground per day." The steam is injected, into the ground for 7 days in a row, then we let it soak for 7 days.” “Oil loosened by steam comes bac...

Antarctic Peninsula summer melt season prolonged by global warming - by Takver - Climate IMC
The melt season on the Antarctic Peninsula has been getting much longer over the last 60 years, at some locations doubling in length according to the research lead by Dr Nick Barrand of the British Antarctic Survey. Increased melting season increases the melting stress of ice shelves which hold back significant glacier discharge and sea level rise.
