In a massive new report, federal scientists contradict President Trump and assert that climate change is an intensifying danger to the United States. Too bad it came out on a holiday.
“It is costly to raise roads,” said county spokeswoman Cammy Clark. “In addition to the design and permitting fees, the construction for the pilot project is estimated to run about $3.5 million.”
There are about 144 miles of road countywide at risk of tidal flooding, she said.
Clark said the design work will take 15 months, which includes an estimated six-month period in which to obtain permits.Construction, which hasn’t been put out to bid, will take a year.
Two new studies have confirmed that farmers can win both ways, achieving a boost in harvests and helping to slow climate change.One says that they can successfully farm with techniques that can help slow global warming and add to the store of carbon sequestered in the soils around the globe.And a second study confirms that a range of tested and sustainable practices is already stepping up yields in small farms worldwide, while dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions, soil erosion and pesticide use.
Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older lady that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags are not good for the environment.The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, “We didn’t have this ‘green thing’ back in my earlier days.”The young clerk responded, “That’s our problem today.

Why does it matter to me that people buy better meat? Why should people care about making sure meat is not vilified in the media? Why give a shit about sustainability? Why should vegetarians and vegan join the fight? Does this even matter?For the last eight years, I’ve helped people regain their health through eating foods that are biologically appropriate for humans. This means avoiding processed foods and sugars, and focusing on fresh produce, animal proteins and healthy fats. What I’ve noticed is that the majority of folks simply want to look good naked, want to solve their own health issues, or feed their family the best diet they can.That’s all great but what do you do when you’ve pretty much solved that? Why am I not satisfied just having a small nutrition practice and fixing individual people?Because there’s some huge, systemic issues going on and I feel compelled to do something bigger.
It is the first mainstream automaker to sound the death knell of the traditional engine, saying that starting in 2019 all the models it introduces will be either hybrids or powered solely by batteries.
I think you’ll agree with me when I say that the forces arrayed against us meat eating, low-carbohydrate diet followers firmly believe the ‘fact’ that running herds of animals destroys the grasslands and ecosystem. And that’s not to mention that the methane from their belches destroys the ozone layer and worsens climate change. But is it true? Are we making a Faustian bargain, those of us who enjoy the health and taste benefits of a juicy chop or sizzling steak? Are we sacrificing the planet to indulge in our own hedonistic low-carbohydrate fancies?
