Stop hoping we can fix climate change by pulling carbon out of the air, scientists warn 23.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Scientists are expressing increasing skepticism that we’re going to be able to get out of the climate change mess by relying on a variety of large-scale land use and technical solutions that have been not only proposed, but often relied upon in scientific calculations. Two papers published last week debunk the idea of planting large volumes of trees to pull carbon dioxide out of the air — saying there just isn’t enough land available to pull it off — and also various other strategies for “carbon...

Handbook provides how-to on heated greenhouses 13.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Anchorage, Alaska • Cold-climate greenhouses have long been an option for increasing the limited growing season in Alaska, where fresh produce is a rarity in a harsh environment.

Now, the state has released a handbook that shows schools and community groups how to build greenhouses heated with a plentiful local resource: wood. The 98-page guide comes as greenhouses g... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Traditional composting isn&#39;t the only means of converting organic waste into energy 31.3.2017 Steamboat Pilot
An inquisitive crowd attended the recent Yampa Valley Sustainability Council Talking Green program on anaerobic digestion to learn how organic waste can be turned into energy and fuel using methods from do-it-yourself projects to industrial-scale equipment that could transform consumer waste at a large ski area. The difference between household composting and anaerobic digestion is that the former relies on oxygen, while anaerobic digestion is a process where microorganisms break down biodegradable materials in the absence of oxygen. Alex King, an intern at Innovative Ag Colorado in Steamboat Springs, displayed his build-your-own anaerobic digester made from a model found on the open resource website Solarcities.eu . King, a native of Steamboat Springs, said his eventual goal is to use home food waste that will basically ferment into fuel within his closed container to produce enough methane to replace some of the propane used to power his backyard grill. “This is a great technique because it’s simple ...

With an Enemy Like Trump, Climate Activists Should Look Beyond the Paris Accord 22.12.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Trump's announcement that he intends to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement has generated outrage worldwide. But many climate activists who find such carbon-trading-dependent agreements woefully insufficient believe it's time for people worldwide to take the climate fight local, like at Standing Rock. President Obama, center right, joining other leaders for a photo at the UN climate change conference in Le Bourget, near Paris, on Novvember 30, 2015. (Photo: Stephen Crowley / The New York Times) The first local environmental campaign I ever got involved in was against Donald Trump. I was living in Aberdeen, Scotland, when, in March 2006 Trump announced his plans to convert one of my favorite nature sites north of Aberdeen into a golf course, hotel and housing complex. Menie Estate, which he had acquired, lay at the heart of a landscape and ecosystem unique within Scotland : a large expanse of shifting sand dunes, home to a diverse community of plants found only on acidic, sandy soils, and well known ...
