ALERT: Marty's Mega-Horrible Xcel deregulation bill advancing 5.5.2015 Twin Cities Daily Planet
the problems with SF 1735… The essence of of S.F. 1735, and it’s House equivalent H.F. 1315 ,  is to replace “rate cases,” proceedings in which Xcel and other utilities have to PROVE UP their need for increased electric rates, with informal, essentially bogus, proceedings controlled by Xcel and other utilities. “…the [Public Utilities] Commission shall approve by order a set of performance metrics … and the associated incentive mechanisms after receiving recommendations from a stakeholder group that must include the utility ….” The basic idea is that Xcel and other utilities will behave better–support more energy conservation, for example–if allowed to do what they want, free of meaningful regulation.  The absurdity of this is well-illustrated by how Xcel is behaving now in regard to the Community Solar Gardens authorized in the last legislative session: From the Star-Tribune, April 28th (The STRIB always seems to give Xcel the benefit of the doubt): “Xcel Energy wants size limits on its Minnesota ...

Urine, Not Detergent Causing Disgusting Foam On India's Varthur Lake 5.5.2015 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Officials in the Indian town of Varthur will have a whiz of a time cleaning up the lake that supplies their water. More than 500 million liters of untreated sewage flows into the lake everyday from local homes and businesses, causing a frothy foam so immense that it is overflowing on to the roads, according to the Deccan Herald. The froth looks like soap bubbles, but it's something much more repulsive, according to Elan Kulandaivelu, an entrepreneur who lives near the lake. "This is a mix of detergent, urine and fecal matter," Kulandaivelu told NDTV.com. "It is as filthy as it gets. And this in an area that is one of the largest revenue generators in the country, the Whitefield Industrial Area." There's even more reason to be pissed off: Scientists of the Indian Institute of Science said there has been a rise of kidney-related diseases and cancer among people living near the lake. In addition, wells and other underground water sources are being contaminated by the polluted waters of Varthur Lake, the New ...

Meet Will Allen, The Urban Farmer Starting His Own Revolution 1.5.2015 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
When you think of farming towns, Milwaukee-proper might not be the first to come to mind. The large Wisconsin city is perhaps better known for its famed breweries and picturesque location along Lake Michigan, but one resident there has been on a mission to make farming more accessible even within the city limits. Will Allen is a former professional athlete who played basketball throughout college at the University of Miami and post-college in Belgium. Though he has also held jobs in corporate America, Allen has spent the last 21 years in a completely different profession: urban farmer. As the founder of Growing Power , Allen oversees his urban farms and teaches people in urban Milwaukee how to grow not just food, but good food. The organization's sustainable farm features multiple greenhouses, indoor and outdoor gardens, crops and animals such as goats and chickens. Growing Power also hosts workshops and outreach programs, and distributes its produce, meats and products throughout the city, making a big ...
