EPA knew pesticides were killing honeybees in the 1970s but punished those who spoke out 


For decades, top officials at the Environmental Protection Agency (PEA) were aware that a compound approved for agricultural use in the United States was wiping out the honeybee population, but they chose to ignore the compound's effects in deference to pressure from agri-giant corporations.

Worse, the agency reacted harshly to anyone within the EPA who attempted to bring the issue to light, including through firings, forced reassignments and other actions.

According to a scholarly 2014 study [PDF] compiled by researcher Rosemary Mason, "on behalf of a global network of independent scientists, beekeepers and environmentalists," and published on the website of MIT, "We have found historical and chronological evidence to show that the herbicide glyphosate (or other herbicides that are used as alternatives) is responsible for the transformation of garden escapes into super-weeds (in the UK these are termed 'invasive species')."

Further, Mason and her team noted that glyphosate -- the primary substance found in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide -- was introduced in Europe in 1974 "and became a global best-selling herbicide because the public was told by industry and the regulators that it was 'safe.'"

The results have been disastrous. For one, the heavy use of glyphosate has led to the rise of so-called "superweeds" that are resistant to the herbicide. But there is another compound that was approved by the EPA -- over the objections of scientists -- that has had a devastating effect on the nation's honeybee population: clothianidin, which is used for seed treatment on corn and canola, by Bayer.

'Honeybees are going extinct'

According to this EPA document describing clothianidin [PDF], it "is highly toxic to honey bees on an acute contact basis," and "has the potential for toxic chronic exposure to honey bees, as well as other nontarget pollinators, through the translocation of clothianidin residues in nectar and pollen."

"In honey bees, the effects of this toxic chronic exposure may include lethal and/or sub-lethal effects in the larvae and reproductive effects in the queen," the document further states.

Mason and her research team found additional evidence of corporate/EPA cover-up regarding the effects of clothianidin. This 99-page EPA memorandum dated November 2, 2010, [PDF] noted, in part:

The major risk concerns are with aquatic free-swimming and benthic invertebrates, terrestrial invertebrates, birds and mammals. ...

Clothianidin's major risk concern is to non-target insects (that is, honey bees). Clothianidin is a neonicotinoid insecticide that is both persistent and systemic. Acute toxicity studies to honey bees show that clothianidin is highly toxic on both a contact and an oral basis. ... nformation from standard tests and field studies, as well as incident reports involving other neonicotinoids insecticides (e.g., imidacloprid) suggest the potential for long term toxic risk to honey bees and other beneficial insects.

A number of EPA scientists -- those with integrity, anyway -- have tried along the way to sound the alarm -- over both glyphosate and clothianidin. In a piece for "" evaggelos-vallianatos="" honeybees-on-the-verge-of_b_4326226.html"="" target="_blank">The Huffington Post, former EPA scientist Evaggelos Vallianatos wrote that honeybees were on the verge of extinction.

Endangered Sea Turtles Are Getting Nasty, Deadly Tumors, and We’re to Blame  :(

Healthy Sea Turtle

by Alicia Graef
October 3, 2014

In sad news for sea turtles, scientists have found that runoff from cities and farms in Hawaii is causing debilitating and deadly tumors, which are believed to be the leading known cause of death for endangered green sea turtles.

Scientists from Duke University, the University of Hawaii and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) teamed up to study what’s causing the tumor-forming disease Fibropapillomatosis, which is clearly a major problem for sea turtles.

The study, published this week in the journal PeerJ, found that nitrogen runoff is ending up in algae that sea turtles eat, which is causing the tumors to grow both internally and externally on their eyes and flippers. According to NOAA, these tumors can interfere with their ability to eat and other essential behaviors, while tumors on their eyes can cause permanent blindness. While it’s a major problem for green turtles in Hawaii, it’s also been found in other places and in other species of sea turtles, including loggerhead, olive ridley and flatback turtles.

“We’re drawing direct lines from human nutrient inputs to the reef ecosystem, and how it affects wildlife,” said Kyle Van Houtan, the study’s lead author, who is also a scientist in NOAA’s Turtle Research Program.

Building on previous research that found the disease was more common in areas with high levels of runoff, researchers tested the hypothesis that the disease might be linked to how algae that the turtles eat stores extra nitrogen.

Algae can store excess nitrogen in arginine, an amino acid, and as they explain in a statement, they found unusually high levels of arginine both in the algae in highly polluted waters and in the tumors of diseased turtles, while levels in cleaner water and tumor-free turtles were comparatively low. Researchers believe arginine is responsible for promoting a virus that causes the tumor-forming disease, although it’s still unclear exactly how it causes the tumors.

Adding to the problem is a non-native red algae that is thriving with the excess nitrogen and taking over native algae that turtles need. The red algae has been found to hold especially high levels of arginine, which researchers believe can make up 90 percent of the turtles’ diet. According to Van Houtan, as a result turtles have approximately 14 times more arginine in their systems than they would if they were eating native algae species in less-polluted waters.

More worrisome is that green turtles, who are uniquely herbivorous sea turtles and only eat plants, have to eat twice as much of the invasive algae to get the same benefit they would from native algae, which is compounding the problem.


Researchers hope this work will help lead to a better understanding of how to protect sea turtles, and other marine plants and animals, that are threatened by pollution.

“It’s not just green turtles, but fish and coral reefs that have similar diseases in these locations,” said Van Houtan, who added that he hopes future research delving into this problem can help impact how we manage reef systems.  “If research continues to support this hypothesis, we probably need to reconsider our current ways of managing coastal nutrients,” he said.

Zero Wasters Dream! 

 This is the most comprehensive zero waste effort we have come across: a whole town in Japan that generates NO garbage.   ;D


 In Kamikatsu Japan residents must compost all their own organic waste, there are no collection bins.

 But this is the real game changer: the town has a sorting center with 34 different categories to deposit your non-organic waste! A bin for razors, a bin for batteries, a bin for bottle caps, a mountain of neatly stacked newspapers and more.

 Remember: garbage is a new thing. A few hundred years ago, every place, although not necessarily sanitary, was more or less "zero waste".

10 Reasons to Turn Off an Idling Car


Sponsored Content by Sustainable America | October 26, 2014 10:08 pm

It happens, we know. You’re picking up a friend, waiting for a food order or just trying to warm up your car on cold morning—and you leave it running for a little while. It’s easy to let those minutes tick by, but getting into the habit of turning your car off when you’ll be idle for more than 10 seconds can make a big difference.

Here’s why: 


1. It saves gas: If you idle for 5 minutes warming up your car in the morning, 3 minutes at the bank drive-thru and 4 minutes listening to the end of an NPR story in your driveway, you’ve burned enough gas to drive 24 miles.

2. It saves money:   Americans spend a whopping $13 million every day on unnecessary idling. (That’s 3.8 million gallons of fuel, wasted!) Also, idling is actually illegal in some states, and violators can pay steep fines if caught.

3. It saves the planet: For every 10 minutes of idling you cut from your life, you’ll save one pound of carbon dioxide—a harmful greenhouse gas—from being released into the atmosphere.

4. It makes us healthier: Idling is linked to increases in asthma, allergies, heart and lung disease and cancer. Kids are especially vulnerable because they inhale more air per pound of body weight, and lots of idling happens near schools.

5. It makes us smarter: Breathing exhaust fumes can damage brain cells and may be linked to autism. A study in New York City showed that kids with a high exposure to combustion engine byproducts had lower IQs by age 5.

6. It’s good for your engine: Idling can damage engine components. According to the California Energy Commission, “Fuel is only partially combusted when idling because an engine does not operate at its peak temperature. This leads to the build up of fuel residues on cylinder walls that can damage engine components and increase fuel consumption.” And did you know that today’s cars warm up more efficiently when they’re driving than sitting in a driveway? They do.

7. It’s quieter: Noise is pollution, too.

8. It’s contagious: Turning off the car sets a good example for your kids and other passengers, and gives a chance for you to educate them about the dangers of idling.

9. It doesn’t stink: Do you enjoy breathing in exhaust fumes? Yuck.

10. It’s easy: Just turn the key when you’ll be stopped for more than 10 seconds. That’s all there is to it.


Sustainable America is committed to helping the United States reduce its oil consumption by 50 percent by 2035. Big changes like more electric vehicles and smarter traffic technology are necessary to getting there, but conservation measures like hypermiling, ecodriving and curbing idling are all important ways individuals can do their part on a daily basis. Be part of the solution by taking our pledge to Turn It Off when you’ll be idle for more than 10 seconds. You can even order a bumper sticker so you can help spread the anti-idling message in your community.

http://ecowatch.com/2014/10/26/reasons-turn-off-idling-car/

Agelbert comment: Great Article!  And we have another excellent and practical reason to NEVER leave a car idling while one goes into a store or to get a cup of coffee in Vermont.

It's illegal! The cops will give you fossil fuelers a nice fat ticket!

Vermont is shooting for 90% Renewable Energy. We mean business and we are NOT kidding here. 

"May 5, 2014 - It's now illegal to idle your car for more than five minutes during a one-hour period in Vermont.

The law is meant to cut down on carbon emissions and save fuel. Violators will receive a $10 ticket for the first offense, $50 for the second and $100 for the third.

There are exceptions. Police, fire and other emergency vehicles do not have to adhere to the rule."

http://kansasfirstnews.com/2014/05/05/law-makes-it-illegal-to-leave-car-idling/

Remember, every gallon of gas you DON'T burn is LESS profit over planet the fossil fuel industry has to BUY our Politicians and degrade our Democracy.

Don't just sit there, get this law passed for your state too!  Future Generations will thank you!

Dust To Dust?

How can we rest peacefully if what we're told in this video is true:

Each year in the United States, the funeral industry dumps into the earth:
- 827,000 gallons of formaldehyde
- 30 million board feet of hardwood caskets
- 17,000 tons of steel/copper vaults
- 1.6 million tons of concrete

And this doesn't begin to address the copious amounts of herbicides and pesticides used to keep those lawns perfect and green. Welcome to Green Springs Natural Cemetery, in New York state where they offer a simple, traditional, dust-to-dust burial, free of toxins.

t's far less expensive than a conventional cemetery as well, at $500 a plot. This land is protected from future development by the fact that they inherit nature preserve status, so the inhabitants can indeed rest peacefully! -- Bibi Farber For more information see: www.naturalburial.org

Some Good News From the Midterm Elections

SustainableBusiness.com News

There's good news on the local level from the midterm elections in addition to the fracking and GMO crop bans we've written about. 

Florida approved an amendment to the state constitution that permanently sets aside funding to protect and restore watersheds and habitats - including the Everglades - which could add up to $20 billion. Voters in 19 states approved 35 land and water protection measures, the most in any election to date. Check out LandVote.org for details.

 In the small city of Richmond, California, all eyes were on Chevron's attempt to buy the local election. Even spending $3 million to control the outcome - electing a mayor and city council who would be more "friendly" to the company - didn't win over voters.   

After decades punctuated by blow-outs at Chevron's massive oil refinery there - sending 15000 people to the hospital in 2012 - the city sued and has been working to tighten regulations. Instead of cleaning up its act, Chevron blanketed residents with attack ads against Tom Butt, who raised $58,000. 

And Chevron lost! Tom Butt won the mayoral election 51% to 35%, and the entire "Team Richmond" won by big margins. 

In Alaska, voters said YES to a ballot measure that allows the  state legislature to ban Pebble Mine if it would endanger the salmon population. Currently, only federal and state agencies control mining permits.

 This largest open-pit mine in North America - up to 2 miles long, 1.5 miles wide, and 1700 feet deep - would extract copper, gold and molybdenum in the heart of the world's largest remaining wild sockeye salmon runs.

While the EPA is trying to block it, lawsuits could make that impossible. Thus, the referendum, which passed 65% to 35%.

 Voters also approved raising the minimum wage and legalized recreational marijuana!

Move to Amend

Voters in Massachusetts, Florida, Ohio, Illinois and Wisconsin voted overwhelmingly for their state legislatures to pass constitutional amendments that overturn the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision.

"Money in politics affects our lives everyday," says Donna Richards of Move to Amend. "We pay too much for healthcare. Our taxes go towards corporate welfare and wars, instead of education and protecting our environment. Our energy policy is dictated by Big Oil, and we can't even pass reasonable gun background checks because the gun manufacturers have bought half of Congress. This isn't what democracy looks like."

 54 communities in Wisconsin alone have voted in favor of an amendment, representing 41% of residents. 16 state legislatures have voted for an amendment, as well as almost 600 towns, villages, cities and other organizations.

 "Nearly all Americans share the sentiment that corporations should not have the same rights as people, and big money in politics should be removed," states Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap, National Director of Move to Amend. "It is time for Congress to pass the We the People Amendment and send it to the states for ratification. The leadership of both parties need to realize that their voters are clamoring for this amendment, and we are only going to get louder."


http://www.sustainablebusiness.com/index.cfm/go/news.display/id/25991

Agelbert NOTE: Don't hold your breath waiting for the fossil fuel fascist Federal Government and their handmaidens in the irreparably Corrupt Court System to slow Chevron polluting down or get corporations off their "personhood" in the service of profit over people and planet.


Tom Butt   Chevron blanketed residents with attack ads against Tom Butt, who raised $58,000.

Tom Butt , the new Mayor of Richmond, California, now is a marked man for fossil fuel skullduggery.   >:(  If you live in or near Richmond, HELP THIS GOOD MAN!   
 People like him are few and far between.

Tom Butt: California Attorney General Greenlights Chevron EIR

Posted by Radio Free Richmond 10sc on June 23, 2014


Two weeks after issuing a 10-page detailed letter highly critical of the Chevron Modernization Draft EIR, the California Attorney General’s Office issue a second letter on June 20, 2014, confirming that all the attorney general’s concerns had been addressed in the Final EIR.

The second letter focused on Alternative 6.5.11, which combines the sulfur processing alternative with no physical increase in greenhouse gas emissions from refinery operations. Alternative 6.5.11 would require Chevron to keep physical emissions of GHGs from Refinery operations at no higher than baseline levels, require no net increase in GHG emissions from any production of hydrogen for export and require that Chevron implement all of the Final EIR’s GHG mitigation measures, including the funding of community-based GHG reduction programs.

Click here for the June 20, letter from the attorney general, which concludes, “Based on our review of the Final EIR and the above understandings, the AGO supports the adoption of Alternative 6.5.11. Adoption of this alternative, along with other improvements made in the Final EIR and the improvements referenced in footnote 2, would resolve the AGO’s concerns associated with the City’s review and approval of this project.”

It appears the first letter from the attorney general was dated June 6, three days before the Final EIR was released on June 9, which was confusing because June 7-8 was a weekend, so the first AG letter and the release of the Final EIR were almost simultaneous. It was widely assumed that the first AG letter addressed the Final EIR rather than the Draft EIR.

It is currently anticipated that the Planning Commission will have one or more hearings the consider certifying the EIR and approving a conditional use permit the week of July 7 and that, if appealed, the Planning Commission’s decision would go to the City Council before the end of July for final action.

Vermonters Save. Polluters Pay. It’s that simple.
« Reply #132 on: November 13, 2014, 08:45:59 pm »


I just signed this petition [http://bit.ly/EnergyIndependentVTPetition] for a new Vermont campaign to put a price on carbon pollution.    I know that, like me, you are concerned about global warming. This is a really important chance for Vermont to do something real about it. I urge you to take action yourself and spread the word!  You can learn more about the Energy Independent Vermont campaign at www.energyindendependentvt.org.



Sign the Energy Independent Vermont petition with the Sierra Club

Dear Friends,
As Vermonters, we know the damage global warming can cause. Climate change is no longer a thing of the future, it is affecting Vermont now. Tropical Storm Irene took lives, leveled homes, and cost hundreds of millions of dollars. According to the Vermont Climate Assessment:

• the average annual temperature in Vermont has increased by 1.3° F since 1960; 45% of this change is since 1990;

• warmer temperatures have caused later “first-fall freeze” and earlier “last-spring freeze”; and

• since 1960, the average annual precipitation has increased 5.9 inches.

The Vermont that we know will change before our eyes. We simply can’t afford to wait any longer to address climate change. And, with more climate-change deniers than ever heading to Congress,
it’s clearly up to states like Vermont to lead the way to find real solutions.


That’s why the Vermont Chapter of the Sierra Club is partnering with other environmental groups, low-income advocates, businesses, and knowledgeable academics to launch a new campaign – Energy Independent Vermont. I’m asking you to join us NOW.

Sign the Energy Independent Vermont petition to Vermont’s incoming legislators asking them to stand up to the fossil fuel industry and pass a carbon pollution tax in Vermont.

Our plan tackles the root of the problem–polluting fossil fuels. Fossil fuel companies are making massive profits while we pay the price, with floods, super storms, droughts, and wildfires becoming more frequent and intense. It’s time to put a price on carbon pollution and make them pay. 

With a tax on polluters, the state can establish an Energy Independence Fund to make smart investments in our communities—like helping Vermonters save money by making their homes more efficient and switching to clean energy, and making public buildings (like schools) more efficient to save us all money on our property taxes.

And, we’re proposing that the rest of the money go to cut other taxes that Vermonters and Vermont businesses already pay. Vermonters Save. Polluters Pay. It’s that simple.

But even in Vermont, bold policies don’t just happen. And dirty energy companies will fight us every step of the way. After all, it is their profits on the line. 

Your part starts by simply signing onto this petition. Our goal is to gather 1,000 signatures in the first week of the campaign.

Let’s remember what’s at stake here. We owe it to our children to protect them from the effects of climate change, and that means taking action now before it’s too late.

Thanks for signing on.

Chair, Vermont Chapter of the Sierra Club

Gasland FULL FILM!


Brilliant, Must See Film
 

 This exceptional film, Gasland, directed by Josh Fox, is one of the reasons New York State has rallied and managed to maintain a moratorium on fracking.

 Nominated for an Oscar in 2011, this film is a dramatic and literally explosive story about fracking. It's also just a brilliant, extremely engaging film - outrageous subject matter aside.

 Welcome into the homes of people all along the Marcellus Shale who's health, land, pets and livestock have been sickened beyond words by the staggering amount of chemicals used in the dangerous hydraulic fracturing process.

 Yes, you will see people's water light on fire, coming right out of the tap. But that's a parlor trick compared to the frightening effect of the overall picture Fox presents on the state of fracking in the US.

 Get ready to be shocked and outraged at what you learn here.  :o  >:(


 "It's amazing that what took mother nature millions of years to build can be destroyed in a few hours of a piece of heavy machinery" says one of the regretful landowners who signed away his rights.
