Conventional, store-bought fabric softeners contain some dubious toxic chemicals. These odd-sounding substances include dimethyl sulphate, pentane, limonene, and benzyl acetate.

Coal Ash Toxic Contamination Found at 10 More Sites

coal,ash,environmental,states,water,toxic,problem,sites,contaminated,integrity,coal ash

Coal burning power plants produce Coal Ash Toxic Contamination which is found at 10 more sites totaling 157

Coal Ash toxic contamination, a by-product from the burning of coal in coal-fired power plants, has been found in elevated levels in ground water and soil at 20 new sites in 10 U.S. states, the environmental watchdog group Environmental Integrity Project reported Tuesday.

These 10 sites are the most recently adding to the total list of 157 sites identified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the independent Environmental Integrity Project, which released the report.

Coal Ash

Coal ash is the by-product left over after coal is burned at power plants and has heavy concentrations of heavy metals and salts that can leach into the environment unless disposed of properly in ponds with liners and covers, said Jeff Stant, the report’s editor.

Most states however do not require these ponds to be lined, nor have any construction standards or any monitoring or cleanup requirements, Stant said, adding that almost half the toxic wastes from coal-burning in the United States are dumped in this manner. Nineteen of the 20 newly identified sites show ground water contaminated with arsenic or other toxic metals exceeding the maximum contaminant level set out in the Safe Drinking Water Act. The 20th site showed contaminated soil with arsenic 900 times the federal screening level for site cleanups, according to the report. Read more…

Clean Coal Fact or Fiction

Clean Coal Fact or Fiction,clean coal,co2 emissions,coal,co2,clean,ccs,emissions,storage,years,billion,current,future

Now that is a real problem! Does anyone else see a problem with this?

Our current coal power plants produce approximately 1/3 of our carbon emissions, and 40% worldwide, with modest increases predicted worldwide, except Asia, mainly China, which is projected to more than double by 2030. And I won’t even touch on all the other harmful toxins released not only by burning coal, but by mining it, and the costs of those mines on the local communities’ health and well-being. Many new hopes do lie in the promising technology of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), which eliminates the carbon emissions from any carbon based fuel supply from atmospheric release, only to move those CO2 emissions to another location. Where those other storage places for CO2 is will create more issues though, and pose more threats on the horizon. Read more…

Sustainability What Does Sustainable Development Mean For Us And The Environment We Will Attempt To Answer This Question For You Here

The term sustainability is derived from sustain, and pertains to sustainable development in this reference, and has ten meanings according to most dictionaries. The word sustain in it’s basic form means to maintain, support or endure. In the 1980′s, sustainability was implemented more in terms of mankind’s sustainability on our planet. There are differing interpretations of this term, most of which are determined by the users motivations.

In 1987, on March 20th to be exact, the Brundtland Commission of the United Nations came up with this definition for sustainable development, “sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” In 2005, at the United Nations World Summit in New York City, it was duly noted that sustainable development requires the reconciliation of environmental, social, and economic demands, Read more…

Achieving Sustainable Development Through Industrial Ecology

ACHIEVING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT THROUGH INDUSTRIAL ECOLOGY

1. INTRODUCTION

During the last ten years, concepts such as sustainable development, industrial ecology and environmental management have been more frequently used by industry, the world of academia, the media, public administration and the NGOs. The amount of such “buzzwords” indicates that there is an increased focus on environmental issues.

Sustainable development means integrating social, economic and environmental objectives  of the society in order to maximize the well being of the present without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet their needs. Recognition is now widespread that industrial activity plays an essential role in a sustainable society. The rapidly-growing new field of industrial ecology (IE) offers methods that can assist corporations and organizations in sustainable operations and serving as agents of change. Industrial ecologists have even referred to their field as “the science of sustainability”. Read more…

Crying is Good The Healing Power of Tears

While we now know crying is good and tears can have healing powers, many of us were told not to cry when we were growing up. While our parents probably meant well (and may have needed some peace and quiet), it is really not good to curtail the body’s natural response to anger, sadness, and other negative emotions. Crying actually has a place in a healthy life.

Emotional Health

The fact that tears are an almost irresistible impulse under certain circumstances points to their necessity in our lives. Some doctors insist that tears are essential for you to process grief effectively. Breathing improves after crying, becoming deeper. This deep breathing is important for the controlling of anger and anxiety. Perhaps crying can help control those things for us. Read more…
