Water Pollution and Control Act History And Future - Let's make sure the powers that be don't create a future such as in the image!

The Federal Water Pollution and Control Act (Clean Water Act) was originally made into law June 30, 1948 as statute (Ch. 758; P,L. 845), which authorized the U.S. Surgeon General of the Public Health Service, in cooperation with other Federal, state and local entities to prepare comprehensive programs with the intention of either reducing or entirely eliminating the pollution of interstate waters and tributaries and improving the sanitary condition of surface and underground waters. During the development of these plans, due process was to be given to improvements necessary to conserve waters for public water supplies, propagation of fish and aquatic life, recreational purposes, and agricultural and industrial uses. The original statute also authorized the Federal Works Administrator to assist states, municipalities, and interstate agencies in constructing treatment plants to prevent discharges of inadequately treated sewage and other wastes into interstate waters or tributaries.

The Federal Water Pollution and Control Act of 1948 was not the first issuance of clean water directives however, as earlier versions were created, such as the Rivers & Harbors Appropriation Act of 1899 which is the oldest federal environmental law in the United States. It was originally enacted as the River and Harbor Act of 1886, but was later re-codified into the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899. The Act of 1899 made the discharge of refuse matter of any kind into the navigable waters, or tributaries thereof, of the United States without a permit a misdemeanor which was specifically referred to as the Refuse Act. The Rivers and Harbors Act also makes it a misdemeanor to excavate, fill, or alter the course, condition, or capacity of any port, harbor, channel, or other areas within the reach of the Act without a valid permit. The Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 also made it illegal to dam navigable streams without a license (or permit) from Congress and was included for the purposes of hydroelectric generation, at a time when the electric utility industry was expanding quite rapidly.

List of Drinking Water Contaminants & Their Maximum Contaminant Level: Disinfectants

Drinking water contaminants also include disinfectants. What are disinfectants, how are they used, and what are their health effects in drinking water at levels above the maximum residual disinfectant level?

What are EPA’s drinking water regulations for disinfectants?

In 1974, Congress passed the Safe Drinking Water Act to control drinking water contaminants. This law requires EPA to determine the level of residual disinfectants in drinking water at which no adverse health effects are likely to occur. These non-enforceable health goals, based solely on possible health risks and exposure over a lifetime, with an adequate margin of safety, are called maximum residual disinfectant level goals (MRDLG). Contaminants are any physical, chemical, biological or radiological substances or matter in water. EPA sets MRDLGs based on the best available science to prevent potential health problems.

Corporate Social Responsibilities For A Greener Planet

Corporate social responsibilities, or CSR is a term used to define a self-regulating business model in which the business regulates itself in terms of local, national, and international laws, ethical standards, and international norms. Thus when a business follows the set of self-regulations, it would take into account it’s responsibilities to it’s customers and consumers, the environment, local communities, shareholders and all other members of it supporting community and environment. This would entail that the business itself would discontinue harmful practices towards the environment and surrounding communities it is near, and to promote public interest into the decision making process honoring the triple bottom line, which consists of people, planet and profit.

Corporate social responsibilities is both highly debated and criticized Read more…

2010 Climate Bill

Fate of the 2010 climate bill

The 2010 Climate Bill appears to be dead according to a dozen of our senators out of 16 surveyed. With the economy still a mess and jobs scarce, lawmakers see little chance of passing legislation which might hinder economic recovery and growth. The amount of people whom believe climate change and global warming are a hoax has more than doubled, and those whom do believe that global warming is real and caused by humans is at 10 percent. So now they are talking about expanding offshore drilling, building more nuclear power plants and requiring a portion of the U.S. electric supply to be generated by renewable sources.

Microwave Radiation Danger Do We Need To Be Worried

Microwave radiation danger, do we need to be worried, simply put, a “microwave” is a wave of electromagnetic radiation. These waves are shorter than radio waves, and, besides their use in microwaves ovens, are used in radar and transmitting data. In a microwave oven, these waves pass through the food, which is heated via dielectric heating. This basically means that the molecules in the food are agitated in order to align themselves with the frequency of the microwaves.

But do the microwaves stay in the oven, or do they radiate throughout the room? Should you be concerned?

Offshore Wind Power Important to Future of Clean Energy Development

Offshore wind power is paramount to the future of clean energy development as the potential is huge. In layman's terms offshore wind power is simply the construction of wind farms on the water which generate electricity from the wind. It can include the ocean as well as inland areas like lakes, fjords and sheltered coastal areas using a fixed bottom technology, although there are also deep water projects that use floating wind turbines.

Offshore Wind Power Important to Future of Clean Energy Development Like This Horns Rev from DONG Energy in Denmark

Offshore wind power is paramount to the future of clean energy development as the potential is huge. In layman’s terms it is simply the construction of wind farms on the water which generate electricity from the wind. It can include the ocean as well as inland areas like lakes, fjords and sheltered coastal areas using a fixed bottom technology, although there are also deep water projects that use floating wind turbines.

The problem with these projects is that they tend to be expensive, costing roughly 2.5 to 3.0 million Euro/MW. The turbines themselves represent only a third to one half of the total costs in the projects today while the rest of the costs come from the infrastructure required, maintenance and oversight of the projects. In 2011, Danish energy company DONG Energy made a claim that these types of projects aren’t yet competitive with fossil fuels, however they estimate that they will be in 15 years. Until that point is reached, government funding, subsidies and other incentives will be required to make the projects more economically feasible. Taking that into account, we still heavily subsidize the fossil fuel industry so why not shift some of that funding over to these types of projects? Read more…

Easy To Build Solar Panels For The Home

What exactly are Solar Panels? We’ve all seen them at one time or another in many different places. Solar Panels are basically solar cells that capture sunlight and actively turns it into electricity.

Solar Panels installed on your home usually produce about about 2 amps at 2 volts (in direct sunlight.) However, over time the solar cells of the solar panels start to wear down. The quality of the panels, and materials used to build them rely on how long they will last. So, when chosing solar panels, go for dollar/watt ratio rather than the size of the panel itself.

Living “off grid” is easy and exciting if done correctly! If you produce more power than you consumer you’ll literally have your electric meter spinning backwards, and instead of YOU paying the power bill, the electric company itself will pay you (buying back the unused power produced by the solar panels.

In order for all of this to happen, you’ll not only need the solar panels, but a Synchronous Solar Panel Inverter.  The Synchronous Solar Panel Inverter is used to produce a “dynamic” between the solar cells of the solar panels and the power grid. It also comes in handy in case your panels become damaged, or unusable, this way you can still use the citys power.

So, homemade solar panels are not only economicable, but they can be a fun weekend project with the right materials at your side!

Go green and save a ton of money… build solar panels … Its as easy as that!

Jon Whitehouse researches and reports on solar panels. For more information check out his site at http://www.SolarPanelBuilder.com

Mid Term Elections 2010 Remember Vote 2010 Green Climate Leaders Not Climate Deniers

mid term elections 2010,vote 2010,2010,vote,climate,just,want,green,planet,big,don't,elections

Vote Green for Climate Leaders, Not Climate Deniers!

Mid term elections 2010 are just around the corner, and Vote 2010 will be Tuesday, November 2, 2010. We have succeeded in getting President Obama to put solar back on the White House, and have reduced our energy use. We are tacking the fight back to big oil and coal companies and proving that we won’t just sit back as they trounce on our precious environment. The last two years we have made some good progress towards a greener planet, with help from a more environmentally friendly government and leaders. This can all change in the blink of an eye come November 2, as Republicans are poised to take back control of the senate and congress. They have been very blunt and straightforward about their plans, and that is to let big oil and big coal producers use the air we breath as a planetary sewer so to speak. We need Climate Leaders in the house, and if the climate deniers retake the house, we will spend the next two years trying to maintain the time and ground we have gained to enact stronger, more innovative clean energy and climate laws, and we will spend even longer trying to regain the ground we lose if Climate Leaders aren’t elected.
