What the Advertisements Aren’t Telling you About Natural Gas

Natural gas has been touted as a clean, green alternative to coal and oil, especially in recent advertisements such as the America’s Natural Gas Alliance’s “Think About It” campaign with TV ads that feature the Denver International Airport, L.A. transit and TOTE container ships as being “green” and “environmentally sustainable” because they are powered by natural gas. However, there is more to the natural gas phenomena, which we can observe with economic, environmental and political lenses. As these advertisements are sponsored by the oil and gas industry, there are a number of things the advertisements aren’t telling you about natural gas: 1. Natural gas is a fossil fuel. Fossil fuels are derived from the remains of organisms and include coal, oil, shale oil, tar sands, natural gas and peat. Burning these fossil fuels for energy needs releases greenhouse gases (GHGs) such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane, causing climate change. When burned, natural gas does emit less CO2 than other fossil fuels such as coal or oil (half CO2 compared to coal), but GHGs (notably methane) are still emitted. In addition, the treatment and transport of natural gas as well as the production of electricity that occurs at the power plant also release GHG emissions […]

California Begs Senator Jim Inhofe to ‘Please, Throw Some Snowballs in Our Direction’

A simple fact: California is drying up. The snowpack is at record lows (which means less spring runoff). Farmers’ fields are brown, rather than green, even as irrigation wells are going deeper and deeper (and some farmers game system for big profits). Reservoirs are retreating even faster than glaciers. The situation is so serious that one can reasonably ask: Does California drying portend California dying? At the same time, leading science observers like Republican Senator James Inhofe strive to cast doubt on the scientific consensus that the climate change is occurring and the planetary system is warming, that humans are playing a significant role in driving this warming and that this warming creates risks for humanity. Inhofe’s science engagement, more appropriately called science denial, had a famous incident last month: a snowball on the Senate floor. Simply put, that snowball means that it is ‘game over’ for climate scientists.”It’s very, very cold out. […]

New Study Sounds Latest Alarm About Need to Put Health Before Pesticide Profits

You don’t have to be a highly trained scientist to see the long-term environmental costs of dumping more than 1 billion pounds of pesticides on the American landscape annually. School kids across America are witnessing the alarming 90 percent decline in monarch butterflies that, not surprisingly, has been linked to an equally alarming increase in the use of glyphosate, the pesticide widely known as Roundup, that kills milkweed, the monarch caterpillar’s only food source. What leading scientists are seeing is equally clear: There’s a growing body of research linking pesticides to environmental harm and health issues. The latest evidence was delivered this week in a new report from the World Health Organization revealing that glyphosate and two insecticides, malathion and diazinon, are “probably carcinogenic to humans.” The report is the work of experts from 11 countries, who found an increased risk of cancer and of DNA and chromosomal damage with use of glyphosate and the two insecticides. This report is troubling because the use of glyphosate has increased to more than 250 million pounds per year in the U.S with the widespread planting of genetically engineered crops such as corn and soy. The pesticide’s residues are now found on 90 percent of soybean crops. The EPA last conducted a basic risk assessment of glyphosate in 1993. In the ensuing two decades researchers have raised questions about the pesticide’s potential health risks. Last year the Dutch government banned all non-agricultural uses of glyphosate and countries in Europe and Latin America are considering bans. Yet, even as evidence of pesticide risks increases, U.S […]
