A Fee on Atmospheric Pollution: Exploring the Options

Everyone is against pollution.  Yet we continue to pollute our atmosphere with gases that drive global warming and the climate chaos we are experiencing.  Without concerted and urgent action we will exhaust the pollution allowance for holding global warming within the critical two degrees Centigrade above the pre-industrial level.   Because power utilities and fossil fuel users are allowed to pump this pollution into our atmosphere with no charge, their energy can outcompete renewable energy…

Oregon Man Licensed To Grow Hemp, Needs Seeds To Plant

SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon state regulators have issued the first license to grow industrial hemp in Oregon.



Now, Capital Press reports, Edgar Winters of Eagle Point just has to figure out how to get seeds to plant.



That was a question last year in Kentucky and Colorado, two states in the forefront of growing hemp for products such as clothing, food and cosmetics.



The plant is illegal under federal law, and seeds will have to be imported. Oregon officials say…

Southern Oregon Climate Action Now Special Topic & Monthly Meeting

“The Not-for-Profit World beyond Capitalism”

One of our most closely cherished illusions is that of unlimited economic growth; we run it up the flagpole as the solution to every major problem.   The myth of unlimited economic growth permeates our cultural, economic, and political life.  We seem to forget that we live on a finite planet with finite resources and a finite ability to process our waste.  Global warming is a result of our emitting waste gases produced from our economic…

Dancing Salmon Home - A SOCAN event

Salmon are probably the most well-known icons of the Pacific Northwest.  They are beloved for their recreational value, commercial value, and cultural importance to Native Americans. When salmon are lost from our rivers and streams, efforts to stimulate their return garner tremendous public support.

The award-winning hour long film portraying efforts by the Winnemem Wintu tribe to reintroduce salmon to the McCloud River in Northern California will be shown at the next meeting of…

Are Carbon Offsets a Solution?

It is well understood that our use of fossil fuel for generating energy is causing the climate change that has stimulated our weird climate and that our weird climate will only become more disastrous with time unless we reduce our emissions of gases substantially and immediately.  We also know that our day-to-day living and travel are contributing to the problem.  As a result, the more conscientious among us make sincere efforts to reduce our emissions.  But we still find it difficult to…

Twenty-Five Years of The Seat of the Soul

Twenty–five years ago I published a book that I did not know if anyone would read. My publisher had been waiting seven years for a sequel to my first book, The Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics. The manuscript I gave her was entirely different, but she published it anyway in Spring 1989. I called the new book The Seat of the Soul. This book immediately began to help people in meaningful ways, and…

Oregon Still Burning | Earth Observatory NASA

On July 26, 2013, thunderstorms passed over southern Oregon, and lightning ignited dozens of difficult-to-control wildfires. Persistently dry weather since the beginning of 2013 had primed forests to burn, and nearly all of southern Oregon was in a state of severe or moderate drought. In early August, forecasters were expecting the situation to worsen.

On August 5, 2013, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS)…

Tainted: Can California solve pot's pesticide problem? | The Cannifornian

The big difference will be the amount of pesticides in your weed. That’s because starting Jan. 2,  when California’s vast legal marijuana market opens, all cannabis must be tested — and most chemicals will be banned. Much of California’s cannabis is tainted, including the “medicinal” stuff. But soon state-sanctioned weed may become the greenest in the nation.

Monsanto, Bayer, DuPont, Dow Chemical, and Syngenta defend their coming oligopoly (MON) (DD) (DOW) (SYT) | Quartz

Top executives from Bayer, Monsanto, DuPont, Dow Chemical, and Syngenta today (Sept. 20) testified before the US Senate Judiciary Committee in Washington, making a case for why federal regulators should approve the mega-mergers, which stand to fundamentally reorganize global agriculture. (Executives from the sixth company involved in the consolidation, China National Chemical Corp., declined an invitation to appear at the hearing.)

Electric car use by country | Wikipedia

Increasing adoption of electric vehicles around the world has in recent years been expanding rapidly. As of the end of 2016: Cumulative global sales of highway legal plug-in electric passenger cars and light utility vehicles achieved the 2 million unit milestone in December 2016, of which, 38% were sold in 2016.[1]. The 1 million milestone had only been reached in September 2016. Global sales of the light-duty plug-in vehicle segment achieved a 0.86% market share of total new car sales, up from 0.62% in 2015 and 0.38% in 2014.[3] The global ratio between all-electric cars (BEVs) and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) was 61:39, up from 59:41 at the end of 2015. Cumulative sales of plug-in hybrids totaled almost 800,000 units. Despite their rapid growth, plug-in electric cars represented only 0.15% of the 1.4 billion motor vehicles on the world's roads, up from 0.1% in 2015.
