Health, Safety Concerns Remain Fracking isn’t new to the Rocky Mountains. The oil industry drilled its first fracking well in Colorado near Boulder in 1901. The practice gained notoriety in the state with the infamous oil shale project near Parachute several decades ago, but it collapsed and remained dormant for years. Since then, fracking has

Australia Building Support To End Dumping Cruise ships would be stopped from dumping waste near the Great Barrier Reef under draft laws to protect Australia’s coastline from dangerous pollutants. Tonnes of cargo slurry is being dumped from ships in Australian waters, polluting the ocean with sewage, food scraps and even radioactive waste. There is cross-parliament

Whose Profits Are They Protecting With Weapons? By Stephen Moore, Heritage Foundation The Environmental Protection Agency spent millions of dollars over the last decade on guns, ammo, body armor, camouflage equipment, unmanned aircraft, amphibious assault ships, radar and night-vision gear and other military-style weaponry and surveillance activities, according to a new report by the watchdog group

Sewage Sludge Spreading Infectious Waste More than 50 million people around the world have Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. It’s the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Alzheimer’s disease is a member of an unstoppable family of neurodegenerative diseases known as Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE). The operative word is “transmissible.” Related diseases are killing wildlife and

The latest toilet-to-tap water project is a possible death sentence for millions of people who will drink the water and contaminate their homes, gardens and offices with a highly contagious pathogen called a prion. The deadly form of protein can cause neurological disorders in mammals, including

Deadly Prion Proteins Survive Wastewater Treatment Process By Michael Woods Scientists in Wisconsin are reporting in a paper scheduled for the July 1 issue of ACS’ Environmental Science & Technology that typical wastewater treatment processes do not degrade prions. Prions, rogue proteins that cause incurable brain infections such as Mad Cow disease and its human equivalent,

Frack Waste Poses Risks To Air, Water By modern definition, anything that threatens the safety of air, food and water is classified as bioterrorism. However, the controversial practice of hydraulic fracturing (frac, frack, or fracking), is a legitimate threat to public and environmental health. Yet, the practice is proliferating around the globe. Its contents remain

Frack Attack On Land, Water, and  Communities As the U.S. pushes the frack controversy down people’s throats in pursuit of short-term energy independence, we may find ourselves importing water and food to replace damaged domestic resources. It’s surprising that Homeland Security laws aren’t being imposed to cease the threats of permanent contamination and overall terrorism

It connects many dots about deadly prion diseases. One pathway that he doesn’t mention is sewage sludge, which exposes livestock, wildlife and humans to
