FracNatural The Unconventional Energy Boost - by Tomas DiFiore
Two studies: One study is based on algorithms of expansion under economic models with unquantified terms such as 'prudent development' of the Monterey Shale. And one study is based on the geologic strata, actual well numbers, production records per well, core analysis by industry logs, source rocks vs migration and trapping timescales, production trends over the course of time, maturity of fields and known reservoir assets vs new exploration, and shifting company profiles and investments.

Audubon California derides San Joaquin water bill (HR 3964) as ‘nothing but a step back’ - by Audobon California
San Francisco, CA - Audubon California on February 4 voiced strong opposition to a cynical legislative effort to take advantage of the ongoing drought to derail California water policy and environmental protections. House Resolution 3964, which is being rushed to the floor Wednesday without committee debate, would overturn years of negotiations over Central Valley water policy that have balanced the interests of communities, agriculture, and the environment.

Birth Outcomes and Maternal Residential Proximity to Natural Gas Development in Colorado - by Environmental Health Perspectives
Birth defects are a leading cause of neonatal mortality. Natural gas development (NGD) emits several potential teratogens and US production is expanding. We examined associations between maternal residential proximity to NGD and birth outcomes in a retrospective cohort study of 124,842 births between 1996 and 2009 in rural Colorado.

California Household Water Usage Is Miniscule Compared To Enhanced Oil Recovery By Steam - by email@example.com
Enhanced Oil Recovery is good to the last drop, and it's also Wellbore Welfare. California water isn't in the rivers, so where is it? Reminds me of a question back in the 1990's - Where did all thee trees go? Too late. But there's a connection. Industry once blamed job loss on environmentalists. Like it was Earth First! or the Sierra Club, or the League of Conservation Voters that came in and stole all the trees. Trees connect the Earth to Sky. The trees are gone. What happens when the rock...

Atomic Fracking in New Mexico, Colorado - by Tomas DiFiore
The over-exploitation of Oil and Gas here at home, is not about “America's Resources For America". It is a kind of sinister 'new world order' of technology driven tactical diplomacy. One might call it more accurately a Right Wing Energy Plan For Destabilization of Key States throughout the world. As the U.S. and Canada production rises, some oil producing countries could face the threat of becoming "failed states" as their leadership grapples with greater pressure for economic and political...

India innovating with solar PV, poised to become global solar leader says World Bank - by Takver - Climate IMC
Yesterday I saw an image shared on my Facebook timeline. It was of solar PV panels installed over an irrigation canal in India. This has the obvious advantage of a double impact for sustainability. Low carbon power is generated by the panels feeding into the transmission grid, and the panels shade the water in the irrigation canal reducing evaporation loss thus saving a scarce resource used for drinking and agriculture.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Restores Local Control over Fracking - by Environment America
(Pittsburgh) – “PennEnvironment applauds today’s decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that overturned sections of Pennsylvania’s controversial gas drilling law, known as Act 13.

Fracking, another wrong turn on the road to sustainability - by Melissa Mullins
The anti-fracking movement is gaining momentum, thanks to documentaries and numerous University studies warning against the toxic chemicals used in the practice. My article urges Californians to join the fight against fracking, and to put pressure on Governor Brown into passing a moratorium. With midterm elections coming up next year, we have the opportunity to get our voice heard, and to elect someone that will represent what we want-- a future powered by clean, renewable energy.

SAN FRANCISCO— A federal district court approved a settlement today (see PDF) requiring the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to better protect California red-legged frogs from seven common pesticides known to be highly toxic to amphibians. The settlement gives the agency two years to prepare “biological opinions” under the Endangered Species Act to analyze pesticide use in and near the frog’s aquatic and upland habitats.

Endangered Species Act Saves Once-threatened Mojave Desert Bird - by Center for Biological Diversity
LOS ANGELES— The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced today (see PDF) that Endangered Species Act protections have successfully recovered the Inyo California towhee, a songbird found only near springs in the Mojave Desert. The towhee got federal protection in 1987 because its habitat around desert springs was being damaged by grazing, recreation and mining. Federal listing with critical habitat protection allowed the bird’s population to rebound from fewer than 200 birds in 1987 to mo...
