With no warning one weekday morning, investigators entered an organic grocery with a search warrant and ordered the hemp-clad workers to put down their buckets of mashed coconut cream and to step away from the nuts.
Then, guns drawn, four officers fanned out across Rawesome Foods in Venice. Skirting past the arugula and peering under crates of zucchini, they found the raid's target inside a walk-in refrigerator: unmarked jugs of raw milk.
"I still can't believe they took our yogurt," said Rawesome volunteer Sea J. Jones, a few days after the raid.

In a one-step process aided by enzymes, materials chemist George John of the City College of New York and chemical engineer Srini Raghavan of the University of Maryland and their colleagues have synthesized amphiphilic sugar molecules that bind with hydrocarbon oils and form a gel, even when the oil is mixed with water (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., DOI:10.1002/anie.201002095).
The group tested the gelator in mixtures of water and diesel fuel. Within five minutes, the oil becomes a congealed mass that floats on top of the water and can be lifted out with a spoon.

Every year, landfills are required to report to the DNR the tonnages of all waste received at their facilities from both in-state and out-of-state sources.
The total amount of waste disposed of in landfills in 2009 dropped 15 percent, from 10.3 millions tons in 2008 to 8.8 million tons, in 2009. Waste from households, institutions and commercial establishments (referred to as municipal solid waste) dropped the most -- 22 percent from 2008 to 2009 (6.2 to 4.8 million tons).
During the same period, waste coming to Wisconsin landfills from other states decreased 31 percent. After peaking in 2004 at 2.2 million tons, out-of-state waste has fallen by almost half. The 2009 total of 1.2 million tons was the lowest since 1997. The majority of out-of-state waste comes from Illinois and Minnesota.
The amount of waste coming to Wisconsin landfills may be down for several reasons, according to Ann Coakley, director of the DNR Waste and Materials Management Program.
"The economic downturn that began in 2008 led many households and businesses to scale back purchases in 2009, which means less material was thrown away," she said. "We are seeing this pattern all over the country. In addition, high fuel prices probably discouraged long-distance hauling of waste into Wisconsin."
Also DNR invasive species data shows minority of boaters increasing risk to lakes and river
Surveys at boat landings across Wisconsin in summer 2010 show that 96 percent of people say they are following a new law to prevent the spread of Eurasian water-milfoil and other aquatic invasive species. But a few are leaving boat landings with aquatic plants attached, potentially putting scores of lakes and rivers at risk.
From May through late July, 182 people were observed arriving at boat launches with aquatic plants hanging off their boat trailers or boats, or driving away from boat launches at the end of the day with invasive plants attached, according to statewide reports entered through July 25 by boat inspectors and DNR Water Guards. Boat inspectors advise the boaters of the law and how to comply, but they do not have authority to issue warnings or citations. Survey results are available on the Department of Natural Resources website.
A private company has just gotten a $50 million cash infusion for its fusion experiments.
Well not exactly stealth. M. Simon reported on the work of Rostoker and Monkton in additions to something I first posted in November of 2007. Still, the fact that they are either getting new money or a release of promised money is good news. The more different ideas we explore on the way to practical fusion the sooner we will reach that goal. Because this is an experimental field. And as Einstein once said, "If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?"
HTML clipboardA private company in Foothill Ranch that is reportedly experimenting with nuclear fusion power has raised $50 million in funding, according to a report from Socaltech.com.
Little more information was available Monday about the experiments at the company, Tri-Alpha Energy, or the funding itself. In the past, Socaltech reported, Tri-Alpha has received funding from Goldman Sachs, Venrock, Vulcan Capital and New Enterprise Associates.
Tri-Alpha's experiments, based on the work of UC Irvine plasma physics professor Norman Rostoker, have been rumored for years, but the company has not revealed the nature of its experiments to the public.
Solcaltech calls it a "stealth developer of advanced plasma fusion technology.

Under the current absence of oversight, it's legal for cosmetics companies to use virtually any ingredient with no pre-market safety assessment.
But that may begin to change as two Democratic lawmakers — Reps. Jan Schakowsky from Illinois and Edward Markey from Massachusetts — introduced the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010 today. If passed, it will be the first meaningful effort to give the FDA the teeth, tools and mandate to protect consumers from harmful products that are used by almost everyone.
Some of what the legislation calls for includes:
•Ingredients linked to cancer and birth defects being phased out of personal care products.
•Health-based safety standards for all ingredients in cosmetics that includes protections for children and other vulnerable populations.
•Required listing on product labels of all chemical ingredients in personal care products, including fragrances and contaminants.
•Worker access to information about hazardous chemicals they may encounter in the manufacturing of personal care products.
•Adequate funding and support of the FDA Office of Cosmetics and Colors to pay for this oversight of the cosmetics industry.
In 1938, Congress passed the Federal Food, Drugs and Cosmetics Act. Its provisions required new products to be shown safe before marketing. That pretty much never happened with cosmetics.
"This legislation would create a system that people think already exists — one that requires companies to assess chemicals for safety and disclose all the ingredients in their products," Stacy Malkan, co-founder of Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, told AOL News.

Call2Recycle is campaigning to remind the American pubic about recycling rechargeable batteries so that they too can be diverted from the landfill. In fact, they are calling for the American public to recycle 1 million pounds of rechargeable batteries between now and October 1.
Call2Recycle is reminding Americans the importance of recycling rechargeable batteries found in all sorts of gadgets including cell phones, laptops, mp3 players, cordless power tools, and digital cameras. The MyCall2Recycle campaign dares Americans to gather up all their rechargeable batteries and drop them off at one of their 30,000 public drop-off locations so that they can meet their goal of 1 million pounds of batteries by the end of the campaign.Since Call2Recycle's launch in 1994, they have collected 55 millions pounds of rechargeable batteries that would have been bound for the landfill.

"It represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to minimize future utility rate increases and to provide much-needed funding for deteriorating infrastructure such as streets, bridges and sidewalks. Today, we took an important first step toward greatly improving quality of life for our residents, while encouraging job creation and economic growth in our community for many years to come."
Under the deal, Citizens Energy Group, a public charitable trust and local provider of gas, steam and chilled water, would acquire Indianapolis' water and sewer utilities, which now are owned by the city and run by private operators. Citizens would and have full control over their operations and be responsible for hundreds of million in capital projects in coming years.
During a news conference, Ballard touted the move as a government reform effort that would take decisions about the utilities, such as how much rate increases are and when they are requested, out of the hands of politicians. Instead, they would be left up to Citizens' board of directors, whose meetings and documents are public because of Citizens' governance structure.
"At the heart of our discussions with Citizens Energy Group is my determination to reform municipal government and address the needs of water and wastewater ratepayers," Ballard said. "No more politicians putting off doing what's right for the long term for what's politically expedient today."
Rates are projected to increase in coming years by more than 100 percent for water and 400 percent for sewer to help pay for more than $4 billion in needed capital improvements to both systems.

Unfortunately this trend is not sustainable for much longer since my unemployment has completely dried up... read more about the growing surge of survivalists and what hardships bring them to this point here
Much of the 'survivalists network' is doom and gloom, but they do offer great information on off grid living, safety, preparedness, being self sufficient and conservation. If we could only instill these values in the fabric of modern living, perhaps this network would have a little more hope in humanity.
Yet with the way we are trying to 'spend our way out of it', will continue to give the 'survivalists network' and lot of new readership.
We need to ask every American:
What are we paying for and why? How did the American Dream become our nightmare?
Easy... consuming, spending beyond our means.
Affordable - means you 'can afford it.'
Sustainable - means you can continue doing without further outside needs.
None of our habits in the last two decades encourage either.
This is a roadmap to epic hardship and a population enslaved to either debt or war from lack of foresight and planing for the obvious energy resources.
The successful start up of the China Experimental Fast Reactor (CEFR) marked a breakthrough in China's fourth generation nuclear technology, and made China the eighth country in the world to own the technology, Zhang Donghui, general manager of the CEFR project.
The goal is to eventually produce fast reactors which burn 70% of the fuel.
Compared with the third generation reactors which have an utility rate of uranium of just one percent, CEFR boasts an utility rate of more than 60 percent. A new recycling technology called pyroprocessing is also used to close the fuel cycle by separating the unused fuel from most of the radioactive waste
A 600 MWe prototype fast reactor is envisaged by 2020 and there are outline plans for a 1500 MWe version by 2030.
The 65 MW CEFR sodium-cooled, pool-type fast reactor was constructed with some Russian assistance at the China Institute of Atomic Energy (CIEA), near Beijing
Fast Reactor design strategy for china
On the first pass the max burn rate for this reactor is 100 GWd/t and for the planned later versions up to 150 GWd/t. There would be offsite pyroprocessing to close the fuel cycle.
With uranium production expected to rise to 55,000 tons from 50,772 tons last year, according to data from the World Nuclear Association.
Demand is expected to increase by 46 percent over the next decade, mainly driven by China, according to CRU. "China's propensity for heavy and early stockpiling will also influence the market," Schodde said in the presentation.
Supplies from dismantled nuclear weapons and other sources not directly from mines will fall to 13 percent of demand by 2020 from 27 percent last year, he said.
As predicted by NextBigFutures Brian Wang, AKA advancednano
Our current administration may want to ask Clinton why we are not 'using now technology' to reprocess our mountains of radioactive waste and stockpiled material? Hint, had we started it then, there would not be a billions in a hole with no future now...
"The FDA doesn't assess the safety of personal care products," notes Leonard. In fact, less than 20 percent of the chemicals in the products we trust and use everyday has been assessed for safety. Legislation on decision-making for ingredient safety in the cosmetic industry has not been updated since 1938. But new legislation may help change that.
s. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), and Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisc.), introduced the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010. This legislation would give the Food and Drug Administration authority to insure that personal care products are free of harmful, toxic ingredients.
According to the press release from the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, this legislation would:
Phase out ingredients linked to cancer, birth defects, and developmental harm Create a health-based safety standard that includes protections for children, the elderly, workers, and other vulnerable populations Close labeling loopholes by requiring full ingredient disclosure, including the constituent ingredients of fragrance and salon products, on product labels and company websites Give workers access to information about unsafe chemicals in personal care products Require data sharing to avoid duplicative testing and encourage the development of alternatives to animal testing Provide adequate funding the FDA Office of Cosmetics and Colors so it has the resources it needs to provide effective oversight of the cosmetics industry Level the playing field so small businesses can compete fairly If you're concerned about lead in your lipstick or carcinogens in your first aid cream, support the Safe Cosmetics Act 2010
At heart, the Very Light Car is a simple vehicle, avoiding the feature creep that has loaded down contemporary vehicles. Design simplicity, low mass and conventional materials result in lower material costs and production time.
• We believe that the Very Light Car is the most efficient auto platform ever built. Edison2's innovations in auto efficiency apply regardless of power source. The chassis and body will make hybrid or electric cars more efficient, helping solve problems of range and performance.
• The Very Light Car is a more sustainable vehicle. Not just efficient to drive, but cradle-to-grave environmentally responsible. Less mass means fewer material inputs. Energy intensive materials and hazardous or scarce materials are largely avoided in favor of conventional materials, such as aluminum and steel, that are readily available, easily made in volume, and completely recyclable.
The cars weigh less than 750 pounds and have a drag coefficient of 0.15, about half that of some of todays best cars. The cars are powered by turbocharged 250-cc engines (two from Yamaha motorcycles, two of Edisons own design) running on E85 ethanol. To dramatically reduce pumping losses from the internal combustion engines, the team uses exhaust gas recirculation to control engine power. The team has also patented a compact front suspension, which includes feather-weight 6-lb. wheels designed to act as force-absorbing collapsible elements in a crash. This innovation alone may be worth more than the $10 million XPrize. Two identical Edison2 cars were the last vehicles remaining in the four-passenger Mainstream class after the Knockout phase of the competition.

ACA urged the use of a risk-based, scientific approach for advancing green chemistry principles that will enhance the public trust in government agencies, and specifically the DTSC to protect people and the environment. It argued that the department must consider that "redesign" of a product is not a trivial matter that can be accomplished easily: while one substance may appear to be a suitable substitute for another based on structure or other physical properties, our products are complex formulations that deliver specific beneficial properties (e.g., low VOC, one coat hiding, and extended durability) that depend on critical interactions of individual components. Simply replacing one with another may result in a product that now can not deliver the benefits of the original, with a net negative lifecycle impact.
Under the proposal, the state would establish a list of "chemicals of concern," which would include carcinogens, mutagens, neurotoxins and compounds that disrupt hormones, persist in the environment, or accumulate in human bodies. DTSC would pick "priority products," popular items that are heavily used by children, pregnant women, and the elderly and other sensitive populations. Manufacturers, suppliers and importers would have to certify to the state - and to retailers - that their products were free of chemicals on the list before they can sell them in California. In some cases, they would also do assessments to find safer alternatives.
ACA also provided specific comments on various aspects of the draft regulations constitute an overreach of the statute, confuse the regulated community, and work at cross purposes to the intent of the legislation to "reduce the level of hazard posed by a "chemical of concern".
ACA is a participant in the Green Chemistry Alliance via its California Paint Council, which has submitted concerned comments to DTSC prior to its release of the draft regulations.
The draft regulations are available at: http://www.dtsc.ca.gov/PollutionPrevention/GreenChemistryInitiative/upload/Safer-Product-Alternative-Regulations-6-23-10.pdf.
- Eisenhower's early linkage of the cutoff to nuclear proliferation concerns and to short-term U.S. nuclear superiority: "we can't go on the way we are with the nuclear build-up and the spread of capabilities." Nevertheless, if a cutoff was implemented, it would leave the United States with a "very substantial nuclear capability."
- The Joint Chiefs of Staff's changing assessment of a cutoff. Early in the 1960s, they saw a cutoff as "not disadvantageous," but near the end of the decade, they argued that there were enough uncertainties about the future stockpile needs to make it 'impossible to rule out … a potential for significant disadvantage to US interests."

NRDC's debate over corn ethanol subsidies is alive and well; and illustrate, through two new reports, the benefits of ditching Federal support altogether.
The first, from the Congressional Budget Office, details how much money eliminating the Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit; the second, from Iowa State University, shows that not only would we save money but eliminating the subsidies, it wouldn't hurt production of corn ethanol.
98% of US Ethanol Comes From Corn
Sasha Lyutse sums up the CBO report:
The CBO report estimated that roughly 11 billion gallons of biofuels were produced and sold in the U.S. in 2009, over 98% of which (10.8 billion gallons) came from corn ethanol. Tax expenditures (essentially foregone tax revenues) in support of this production were roughly $5.16 billion, including VEETC payments of $0.45 cents per gallon for blending ethanol (regardless of the feedstock) and the additional $0.10 cents per gallon that "small producers" receive on the first 15 million gallons they produce.
CBO finds that before they even pay at the pump, taxpayers incur a cost of $1.78 to replace a gallon of gasoline by substituting corn ethanol. This accounts for not only the cost of the VEETC per gallon, but the relative energy content differences between ethanol and gasoline (gasoline contains ~32% more energy than a gallon of ethanol, so 1.48 gallons of ethanol are required to replace one gallon of gasoline), and changes in the consumption of ethanol and gasoline that can be attributed to the tax credit. (Switchboard)
...As for job losses in the ethanol industry nearing 200,000 as alleged by the corn ethanol industry, Babcock's report finds that allowing the VEETC to expire would results in the loss of just 407 direct jobs.

PopSci Few vehicles flaunt their gas-chugging power as proudly as a Porsche Cayenne, so it's natural to be suspicious of the hybrid version. Can this racecar-like SUV really improve gas mileage and still be a Porsche?
Thanks to several technological tweaks, yes. First, a more-efficient supercharged 3.0-liter V6 replaces the V8. The gas engine is paired with a 47-horsepower electric motor, and the two are linked with a decoupling clutch, so either one can run the vehicle independently. The motor is capable of handling the load alone at up to 37 mph. Together the pair flings the SUV from 0 to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds. Yet the hybrid gets an estimated 20 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, a 25 and 14 percent gain over the non-hybrid version. It also does tricks: At up to 97 mph, when you take your foot off the accelerator, the engine disengages from the drivetrain and shuts down. Here's how this "sailing" mode lets you briefly zoom without any power at all.
How to Drive Gas-Free at High Speeds
Lift Off the Gas Pedal...
when coasting at high speeds, and the gas engine powers down. A decoupling clutch disconnects the gasoline engine from the electric motor and the rest of the drivetrain, freeing the drivetrain from the drag that the powered-down engine places on it and allowing you to coast farther, fuel-free.
powered by unhindered momentum. In this mode, which Porsche calls "sailing," the electric motor runs in reverse, acting as a generator that harvests kinetic energy to recharge the hybrid system's nickel-metal-hydride rear battery.
to speed up again. A computer coordinates the transition back to gas power. The decoupling clutch reconnects the gas engine to the drivetrain within 300 milliseconds, and the electric motor provides an additional boost for highway acceleration without a perceptible lag. Read full at PopSci

But an examination of the American tax code indicates that oil production is among the most heavily subsidized businesses, with tax breaks available at virtually every stage of the exploration and extraction process. It's not just Big Oil on corporate welfare. How about Big Agriculture.
The Archer Daniels Midland Corporation (ADM) has cost the American economy billions of dollars since 1980 and has indirectly cost Americans tens of billions of dollars in higher prices and higher taxes over that same period. At least 43 percent of ADM's annual profits are from products heavily subsidized or protected by the American government. Moreover, every $1 of profits earned by ADM's corn sweetener operation costs consumers $10, and every $1 of profits earned by its ethanol operation costs taxpayers $30.

President Obama has pushed Congress to pass a comprehensive bill to battle climate change and foster alternative and renewable energy sources this year, as they consider their options on energy and climate legislation, it's important to be clear about what will move the country forward and what will move it backward. Will our leaders put us on the road towards the carbon pollution cuts desperately needed to take back control of our economic, environmental, and national security, or will they drive in the wrong direction and make matters even worse? - GRIST

Unless the overall Senate bill includes a cap on stationary source emissions, some energy bill provisions would actually make carbon emissions worse. Here are some examples at the GRIST
The American people have waited for long enough to curb the toll of death and illness from power plants' other pollutants. Now the big power companies are proposing, like the Devil to Dr. Faustus, that Americans trade off their health as the price of the companies reducing their global warming pollution. No deal.
When Obama and members of the Senate return from the Independence Day break, they will face a choice on what kind of future to deliver the American people. One path -- climate and energy legislation -- can make good on decades of unmet promises to break the nation's addiction to oil, clean up the air we breathe, and win the clean energy race.
The other path will deliver nothing more than another piecemeal, dirty energy bill that will set the country backwards, not forwards.
The choice should be obvious. Will it be?
