July 18, 2011 by legitgov

Heat wave hardest on nation's poorest communities 18 Jul 2011 With much of the nation in the grip of a broiling heat wave, few people are hit as hard as the poor, and few places are poorer than the ramshackle communities along the Texas-Mexico border known as "colonias." The misery was widespread Monday, with the worst conditions blanketing a broad band from Texas to Minnesota and Dakotas. Seventeen states issued heat watches, warnings or advisories. And the heat index easily surpassed 100 degrees in many places: 126 in Newton, Iowa; 120 in Mitchell, S.D.; and 119 in Madison, Minn... In towns large and small, the withering heat was cruelest to those who could not afford air conditioning.

Stop Power Plants from Shredding Endangered Fish

July 17, 2011 by legitgov

Stop Power Plants from Shredding Endangered Fish (National Wildlife Federation Action Fund) 15 Jul 2011 Endangered shortnose sturgeon swim in the waters of the Hudson River, surrounded by the constant threat of being sucked into a power plants' water intake pipes or trapped against the screens when they are unable to swim away from the force. Outdated power plant cooling structures across the country consume more than 200 billion gallons of water each day and kill billions of fish a year--and they are completely unnecessary. Simply installing less-wasteful cooling technology stops 95% of fish kills and water use by power plants. ...[T]he EPA just proposed to let power plants off the hook--and we only have until July 19 to urge them to set a strong national standard for power plants to use safer closed-loop cooling systems.
