Growing Green Must Go Green 29.7.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
As the legalization of marijuana for medicinal and recreational purposes becomes more widespread, the budding industry has come under closer scrutiny. One of the more serious concerns to be raised is the possible environmental damage that could be caused by a mass increase in Cannabis production. Marijuana cultivation has a host of environmental concerns such as land coverage, water consumption, power usage, as well as pesticides and fertilizer run-off. Escaped, "wild" Cannabisis not often considered as a potential problem since it is not exactly an invasive species, but it can compete with other plants and disrupt local ecosystems. These situations are quite serious in California , where important watersheds have been threatened by unsanctioned marijuana growing operations. Resource consumption is by far the greatest environmental risk associated with large scale marijuana cultivation. In many areas where it is grown, Cannabis consumes far more water thanthe native vegetation. Indoor operations require ...

These Photos Reveal Moments From Hillary Clinton's Philadelphia Convention That Few Will Ever See 29.7.2016 Mother Jones
Photographer M. Scott Brauer is covering the Democratic National Convention for Mother Jones' Instagram account. Brauer, who has a kind of exaggerated paparazzi-esque style, also snapped photos at Donald Trump's bizarre Republican National Convention in Cleveland, which concluded June 21. The Democratic convention in Philadelphia has presented special challenges, Brauer said. Logistics, crowding, and rainy weather have made the event more difficult for he and other journalists to cover than the Republican convention, Brauer added. Using a harsh, direct flash — a style Brauer has been using throughout his coverage of the presidential campaign over the past year — he photographed protesters on the streets as well as delegates, media, speakers and staff on the convention floor. Here are some of our favorite photos from Brauer's time at the DNC. On Monday, activist Annette Elbaz walks along the perimeter of the Wells Fargo Center, where the convention is taking place, looking for a protest. Elbaz, who ...
