audio July 17th 2014 Commemoration On World Justice (audio/mpeg 39.2MB) - by Tomas DiFiore
The Mp3 share, a composite of samplings – is spirited from the Timber Wars of the Pacific NW to Nicaragua, Guatemala, 911, Iran, Irag, Afghanistan, New York, Washington D.C., Indigenous Lands and People Everywhere. Beginning with a march on Washington (40,000 KKK in 1925) it journeys through the trail of Henry Kissinger, and the world’s various indictments of some of the masters of war and cultural despots. These audio samples cover a large range of connected subjects and are somewhat of ...

“Are New Fracking Regulations in California Enough?” is the companion article to the Sunset Travel Magazine's article on “The Future of Fracking in California”. The Sunset article, concludes with Paula Getzelman who “believes a moratorium is the best interim measure “to allow time to gather some evidence, whichever way it might go, and allow for more reasonable discussion on both sides.” Some things though, can't be fixed. Dr. Anthony Ingraffea's work is quoted, but what his re...

How Offshore wind turbines can win a david and goliath battle with hurricanes. Here is a lateral idea: build large offshore wind farms that provide electricity from day to day, but also substantially decrease damaging hurricane or tropical cyclone wind speed and storm surge.

No Horizontal Drilling, No Hydraulic Fracturing, No Drilling For Oil, No Exploring For Natural Gas In Mora County, New Mexico. Mora County passed an ordinance in April 2012, that bans drilling for oil and gas, bans the use of water for hydraulic fracturing, and declares that corporations aren't people. A Ban ... To Eliminate The Constitutional Rights And Privileges Of Corporations, sounds fine.

Well Casing Failures a.k.a. Sustained Casing Pressures - It's really quite simple to understand, cement shrinks, and cracks. Five per cent of all wells drilled show a cement failure immediately. Based on the history of conventional wells, and recent peer reviewed research: “Probablistically, the range of events expected for longer wells, with higher pressures, larger volumes of frac fluids, and more wells per pad, are that we should expect a higher accident rate. And that is what we're seei...

text 2014 Ocean Fracking Investigation Coastal Commission Report - by Tomas DiFiore
The California Coastal Commission Has Authority to Halt Offshore Fracking. “Approximately half the oil platforms in federal waters in the Santa Barbara Channel discharge all or a portion of their wastewater directly to the ocean, according to a California Coastal Commission document. This produced wastewater contains all of the chemicals injected originally into the fracked wells, with the addition of toxins gathered from the subsurface environment.”

Recycling of frac wastewater and decontamination of produced water is still a hopeful myth. Billions of dollars have been invested by companies expecting to profit on a timely and useful technology. But it's not happening. As reported in October, November, and December of 2013 there were only “recurring losses to other investors that sunk hundreds of millions of dollars into companies that promised to solve water concerns by treating water. Publicly traded targets including Nuverra Environm...

The continent of Antarctica is a land of complexity and paradox, especially when talking about climate change. It is our driest and coldest desert on the planet but locks up an enormous amount of fresh water in it's thick ice sheets. The southern ocean surrounds the continent, insulating it from warmer latitudes, but those currents also bring warmer waters from the tropics to interact with the giant ice shelves around the continent.

I came across an article lambasting the Australian Antarctic Expedition scientists on board the MV Akademik Shokalskiy trapped by fast ice since Christmas Eve in the Commonwealth Bay region of Antarctica. Climate scientists and tourists are on board the vessel on the Spirit of Mawson voyage, retracing Sir Douglas Mawson's Antarctic expedition.

SAN FRANCISCO— Documents obtained by the Center for Biological Diversity — which petitioned in February 2012 for state protection for gray wolves — show state wildlife officials and independent scientists agree that wolves are likely to return to California. The prediction has been reinforced over the past two weeks, when the wolf known as OR-7 made two more forays into the state from Oregon.

SAN FRANCISCO— Sea-level rise driven by climate change poses a deadly threat to 233 federally protected animal and plant species in 23 coastal states, according to a new scientific report from the Center for Biological Diversity (see PDF), and U.S. wildlife protection agencies are not doing enough to protect at-risk species.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska— In response to scientific petitions filed by the Natural Resources Defense Council and Center for Biological Diversity in summer 2013, the federal government announced Friday that pinto abalone may need protection under the Endangered Species Act. The 6-inch-long marine snails have declined by between 80 percent and 99 percent throughout much of their range, primarily as a result of rampant overfishing. Even with fishing now largely prohibited, the animal’s continued su...
