News Bulletin

  • Nuclear Plant busted in Japan, there maybe acid rain in the following days.
  • Reforest 'Bombings'. How can we reforest areas hard to get to? Moshe Alamaro, MIT engineering student, has a great idea: aerial 'bombing' of tree seedlings in biodegradable containers that hold food and water. Dropped from planes, the seedlings in cone shaped containers would bury themselves in the ground and have enough nutrients and water to keep them growing until rains can bring their life-sustaining necessities. A single flight could plant 100,000 trees.

    Clean Water Act's 25th Birthday. According to the National Resource Development Council, while there are still incredible problems in the nation's waterways, the Clean Water Act has done incredible good: Since 1970, discharge of untreated sewage into the nation's rivers have decreased by 90%; Wetland losses in the past decade have averaged 200,000 acres a year less than in the 70's and 80's; Without the Act, more than a billion additional pounds of toxic pollutants would be added to our surface waters every year; In 1970, only about 36% of our rivers and lakes were safe for swimming, but today it's about 65%. As the NRDC said, "To all of us who ever swim in, fished in, waded in, or just gazed at a lake or river, the Clean Water Act is not merely one of the most sane and sensible federal programs ever created. It's an essential."
