Letter: Kill the zombie Lake Powell pipeline 6.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Some years ago when Rep. Mike Noel introduced the idea of the Lake Powell pipeline to Kane County residents, he assured them that it would be paid for by a water deal with Blue Castle Holdings, a company that wanted to build a nuclear power plant on the Green River. Noel had crafted a contract with Blue Castle to lease river water owned by Kane County in exchange for large amounts of money. It now appears that this deal has fallen through. Blue Castle’s first payment of $100,000 to Kane County W...

The Anatomy of US Military Policy: An Interview With Andrew Bacevich 4.12.2016 Truthout - All Articles
The US intervenes in international conflicts more than any other nation, and its penchant for armed interventionism has made situations worse, says military historian Andrew Bacevich. Why are so many content to play cheerleader to this mayhem? US Army paratroopers engage in a joint forcible entry exercise at Malemute Drop Zone on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, August 23, 2016. (Photo: Airman 1st Class Javier Alvarez / US Air Force ) Since the end of the Cold War, the US has been the only true global superpower, with US policymakers intervening freely anywhere around the world where they feel there are vital political or economic interests to be protected. Most of the time US policymakers seem to act without a clear strategy at hand and surely without feeling the need to accept responsibility for the consequences of their actions. Such is the case, for instance, with the invasion of Iraq and the war in Afghanistan. US policymakers also seem to be clueless about what to do with regard to several ...

(Photo: Hilary Swift / The New York Times) The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and its offshoot the American City and County Exchange (ACCE) are meeting in Washington, DC, this week to strategize on how to advance a far-right agenda under a Trump presidency. Trump Transition leader, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, is an ALEC booster. Not surprisingly the Trump team has been picking many with Koch and ALEC ties to fill key positions in government including Koch Congressman Mike Pompeo, school privatizer and ALEC funder Betsy DeVos , and South Carolina Governor and ALEC stalwart Nikki Halley. The ALEC agenda for this year's State and Policy Summit contains the usual potpourri of anti-worker, anti-government proposals along with quite a few important pay-to-play measures for big ...

Fossil Fuel Industry Has Known Since 1967 That Injection Wells Cause Earthquakes, Despite Denials 30.11.2016 Truthout - All Articles

(Photo: Stephen Thornton / The New York Times) On August 9, 1967, a 5.5 magnitude earthquake struck Northglenn, a northern suburb of Denver, Colorado. The Associated Press wrote that it was "the severest earthquake ever recorded" in the city's history. Building foundations cracked, windows broke, bricks flew off of downtown rooftops. A year later in the prominent academic journal "Science," geophysicist J.H. Healy and his associates proposed that humans, not nature, were responsible for the quake. "We attempt here to present the statistical evidence for correlating the two events -- fluid injection and earthquakes -- and to develop a hypothesis relating the two as cause and effect," Healy wrote. The "fluid injection" Healy was referencing had been taking place two miles from Northglenn at the U.S. Army's Rocky Mountain Arsenal manufacturing plant. In 1961, the army drilled a "disposal waste ...

PG&E to spend extra $85 million on Diablo Canyon closure 29.11.2016 SFGate: Business & Technology
Pacific Gas and Electric Co. plans to give the communities surrounding California’s last nuclear power plant, Diablo Canyon, at least $85 million to cushion the economic blow of closing the facility. “This groundbreaking agreement will soften the signficant impact our community will feel once Diablo Canyon is no longer here,” said Adam Hill, vice chairman of the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors, in a press release. The California Public Utilities Commission has not yet scheduled a vote on PG&E’s proposal to shutter the plant, and nuclear power advocates are pushing hard to keep it open. PG&E stunned many Central Coast officials in June when the utility announced plans to close Diablo Canyon, located on a seaside bluff in San Luis Obispo County. [...] PG&E would continue to fund local emergency planning efforts until both of the plant’s two reactors have been decommissioned and all of their spent fuel has been transferred to dry-cask storage facilities on the site. [...] PG&E has agreed ...
