Colorado County Funds College Scholarship With Marijuana Money 15.2.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
DENVER ― Budding scholars, rejoice. Commissioners in Pueblo County, Colorado, on Monday signed off on what they’re calling the “world’s first cannabis-funded scholarship.” The fund of approximately $475,000 will be available for high school students in Pueblo County who wish to attend Pueblo Community College or Colorado State University-Pueblo in fall 2017. Of that funding, about $425,000 comes from cannabis excise tax revenue, which is a one-time county-level tax on all marijuana grown in Pueblo County. A  state government-run scholarship program  makes up the remaining $49,664. Every qualifying high school graduate in the county should expect about $1,000 in aid this year, with more being awarded based on merit and need. PCC in-state tuition  is slightly more than $3,000 per year, while CSU-Pueblo can cost up to around $6,000 per year depending on the number of credit hours taken. County commissioner Sal Pace told local news outlet KKTV  he’s thrilled to see the money applied to something that can ...

New Study: Secrecy Around Composition of Oil Sands Dilbit Makes Effective Spill Response, Research Impossible 29.12.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Knowledge gaps about the behaviour of diluted bitumen when it is spilled into saltwater and lack of information about how to deal with multiple problems that can result from extracting and transporting bitumen from the Alberta oilsands, make it impossible for government or industry to come up with effective policies to deal with a disaster, says a newly published research paper,  Oilsands and the Marine Environment . The study by ecologists from Simon Fraser, Stanford, Oregon State and Northern Arizona universities, who scrutinized more than 9,000 research papers , concludes that officials should collect more information about the environmental effects of bitumen before setting regulations. "There just isn't enough science in the public eye to answer questions about the risk bitumen poses to the ocean," said lead author Stephanie Green, a Banting postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Ocean Solutions at Stanford University. "We found almost no research about bitumen's effects on marine species," ...

Remember when NASA discovered flowing water on Mars? Turns out there might not be much of it 25.8.2016 Science / Technology News

Last year, the discovery of dark streaks in the sands of Mars during warmer months suggested NASA had found evidence of flowing liquid water on the barren world. But now, a new study from researchers at Northern Arizona University and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge is causing that theory to dry up.

"Water Is Our Life": How a Mining Disaster Affected the Navajo Nation 16.5.2016 Truthout.com
Nearly a year ago, Environmental Protection Agency contractors accidentally released 3 million gallons of acid drainage from a Colorado mine, contaminating local rivers with hazardous metals and turning the waterways yellow. Just downstream, residents of the Navajo Nation continue to face threats to their health and livelihood. Wastewater from the Gold King Mine drains into retention ponds to eliminate contamination before it flows into the Animas River near Silverton, Colorado, August 15, 2015. (Photo: Mark Holm / The New York Times) In the midst of the ongoing water crisis in Flint, Michigan, it is not surprising that the World Health Organization recently released a report documenting that the environment is responsible for almost a quarter of deaths and disease in the world. But this is not news to the Diné (Navajo) people, who believe that all parts of nature -- the water, fish, trees and stars -- are equal members of society and are so intricately connected that an imbalance in one member may ...

Northern Arizona U. Students Launch Sit-In as Fossil Fuel Divestment Movement Sweeps Country 29.4.2016 Democracy Now!
Students at Northern Arizona University, or NAU, are in the midst of a sit-in to call on their school to divest from fossil fuels. At least eight students have been arrested after they refused to leave a university building at closing time. Their protest is part of a national "Fossil Free" movement to pressure colleges to address the issue of climate change. For more, we’re joined by Michaela Mujica-Steiner, a senior at Northern Arizona University, and Karina Gonzalez, a graduate student in the NAU Forestry Department. Both were arrested during protests demanding fossil fuel divestment.
