Man Made Disasters Part 2 The Dust Bowl with its Black Blizzards seen here

The Dust Bowl, also referred to as the Dirty Thirties, was primarily created by man with a little help from mother nature, from 1930 to 1936 and until 1940 in some areas. After several periods of unusual rainfalls, which encouraged settlement and cultivation in the Great Plains, a severe drought started, causing crops to fail, leaving plowed fields open to wind erosion by the strong easterly continental winds. During the period of drought, severe storms were created from the wind erosion. On November 11, 1030, a strong Dust Storm stripped the topsoil from South Dakota farmlands. On May 9, 1934, a strong 2 day dust storm removed massive amounts of the topsoil from the Great Plains in what was one of the worst dust storms of the bowl. The dust clouds from this dust storm carried the dirt all the way to Chicago where dirt was falling like snow. Read more…

Can You Name Who Is In The Picture? Presidents Day 2011 It Is February 21 2011 A Brief History

When is Presidents Day 2011, while the observance of this federal holiday, which is on February 21 in 2011 by the way, or the third Monday in February for those whom are interested, is a national holiday, some, if not many may not even know how it came about. With George Washington’s Birthday falling on February 22nd, and Abraham Lincolns Birthday on February 12th, both of these were previously celebrated on those respective days before 1968. Washington’s birthday was a federal public holiday, and Lincoln’s birthday was observed as a public holiday in most states. Seeing as this made for two holidays that fell close to each other, and the day of the week was always changing, the 90th Congress of the US became determined in their quest to create the current system of holidays we have in that most federal holidays and observances fall on Mondays.

Sources of Calcium The Top Ten Food Sources of Calcium

Sources of calcium, the top ten food sources of calcium, and we all are aware of the fact that health professionals do emphasize the importance of calcium in our diets, especially for women. There are good reasons for this emphasis – this nutrient is essential for strong bones (especially in post-menopausal women), proper muscle and nerve function, and proper blood clotting. Food sources are best for obtaining this mineral. Supplements may not be “bioavailable,” or easily absorbed by the body.

Adult men and pre-menopausal women need about 1000 milligrams of it a day, and women need about 1200 milligrams after menopause. Here are ten of the top foods that are good sources of calcium.

1. Plain Yogurt
One 8-ounce cup of plain yogurt contains anywhere from 415 to 452 milligrams of the mineral. Because of the live cultures in yogurt, it is absorbed better than the calcium in 8 ounces of milk. Read more…

GOP Led House Passes Cut Version Of Obama’s Energy Bill By $6 Billion

GOP Led House Passes Cut Version Of Obama's Energy Bill By $6 Billion

On Friday, the Republican led House passed a 30.6 billion dollar energy bill covering the Energy Department and the Army Corps of Engineers programs. The final cost was $1 billion less than this years budget, and $6 billion less the President Barack Obama’s request for the energy and water projects. The Republican leaders called it a model of restraint, but White House officials claimed that it jeopardized economic growth and clean energy projects.

The bill included an amendment that allows companies to continue to make and sell old-school 100 watt light bulbs after January 1, 2012, when they were originally scheduled to be phased out. Previously, Republicans have tried to overturn a 2007 law requiring light bulbs to be more energy efficient starting in 2012, but all previous attempts have failed. The new House bill also blocks the Obama Administration from closing the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste project in Nevada. The government has already spent $15 billion on the project, but it still not open for business, which is storing spent nuclear fuel from power plants. President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada both want to end the program. Read more…

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…
