The Major Food Waste Problem You Haven’t Heard About

Food waste has gotten a lot of attention lately, and rightly so. In the United States, we trash up to 40 percent of our post-harvest food supply. But there’s another, more insidious form of waste that plagues our food system—and it’s baked right in. We devote more than 100 million acres of U.S. land to growing crops that don’t contribute efficiently to our food system and in some cases pose an outright threat to our health and the environment.

Cutting Superfund’s Budget Will Slow Toxic Waste Cleanups, Threatening Public Health And Property Values

By Katherine Kiel, College of the Holy Cross Next year will mark the 40th anniversary of the Love Canal crisis, when toxic chemicals were found to be leaking from an underground dump into homes in Niagara Falls, New York. State and federal agencies relocated more than 200 families out of the affected area. A state investigation later found elevated rates of birth defects among families who had lived at Love Canal. This disaster called public attention to health risks from improperly controlled toxic waste. In response, President Jimmy Carter signed the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), commonly known as Superfund, into law in December 1980. Superfund has supported cleanups of toxic waste sites in all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia. But its funding decreased by nearly half between 1999 and 2013, and President Trump’s 2018 budget proposal calls for an additional 30 percent cut, despite EPA administrator Scott Pruitt’s assertion that Superfund is “absolutely essential.” As an economist specializing in housing issues, including the relationship between toxic cleanups and property values, I have published several studies of Superfund sites […]

Teaching Climate Science In The Age Of Trump

James Sutter is a science teacher at Wellston High School, student population less than 500. Wellston, Ohio is a town of a little more than 5,000 people in southeastern Ohio near the West Virginia border. The town is 98 percent white and mostly Protestant. Only 12.7 percent of adults in the town age 25 or older have at least a college degree compared to almost one of three adults in the United States as a whole. Most students are from families that live below the poverty line. Wellston, located in Jackson County, used to be coal country and it is now Trump country. Donald Trump got 73 percent of the presidential votes cast in Jackson County in 2016. According to a recent article in the New York Times, Mr. Sutter has been having difficulty with some of the students in his classes, and their parents, because, like the President of the United States, they reject the reality of climate science […]

This Paint Could Change The Face Of Sustainable Design

For Architectural Digest, by Carrie Hojnicki. Graphene, and its somewhat mythical categorization as one of the strongest materials in the world, has long been the stuff of sustainable design dreams. Thanks to Spanish producer Graphenstone, these dreams are becoming a reality with the introduction of the world’s first Graphene paint. Thanks to Spanish producer Graphenstone, these dreams are becoming a reality with the introduction of the world’s first Graphene paint. First reported by Dezeen, who spoke with Graphene director Patrick Folkes, the introduction of Graphene paint, which has already been used successfully? on several commercial and restoration projects in Europe, will have enormous implications for energy-saving in the heating and cooling of homes because it effectively acts as a source of sustainable heat energy. “When used on interior wall surfaces, rather than heat being radiated through the walls, the graphene within the paint captures the heat,” Folkes explained to Dezeen. “It then conducts the heat through the paint and across the whole Graphenstone-painted surface of interior walls. This enhances the insulation measures used in buildings by slowing heat conduction through walls and out of buildings.” As if that weren’t enough for the eco-friendly consumer, the new paint will also be composed of 98 percent pure lime — a resource endemic to Graphenstone’s Spanish roots — whose ability to absorb carbon dioxide can purify ambient air. The paint, distributed through the Graphene Company, is available in indoor and outdoor varieties […]

Trump’s Abdication Message Not Best For All

Some broken hearts never mend, Some memories never end, Some tears will never dry, My love for you will never die* When I’m faced with difficult decisions, moments of sadness, or when I’m contemplating the state of the world in tumultuous times, I often turn to country music, and its vulnerable and open-hearted lyrics in order to calm the swirl of my thoughts. In particular, I find solace and inspiration in the songs of Don Williams, whose voice defines the word mellow, and whose lyrics can hook a melancholy heart from the depths of despair and bring it to the surface of the soul.
