When the operators of the Grey Wolf landfill outside Prescott Arizona grew frustrated spending US$8000 a month to run three large diesel generators to power the facility - along with the inherent risk of fuel spills - they didn't immediately consider using solar power to address their needs.
Poor farming practices have degraded the world's soils causing them to release carbon that should have stayed in the soil. In the past 150 years soils have released twice as much carbon as fuel burning. Improved farming methods could quickly rebuild degraded land and store enough carbon to offset the damage already done by fuel burning. Dr Rattan Lal of Ohio State University, a leading expert on soil carbon, estimates that the potential of economical carbon sequestration in world soils may be .65 billion to 1.1 billion tons per year for the next 50 years. This is enough to draw down atmospheric CO2 by 50 ppm by 2100. This is a one-time opportunity, however. We must ultimately stop burning fossil fuels.
Fish-Related Issues: From Controversy to Consensus: Improving Fisheries Habitat in California’s Lower Yuba River
The 2008 Lower Yuba River Accord has been recognized for its economic and environmental benefits and serves as a testament to collaboration. As a result of this historic settlement, Chinook salmon habitat in the lower Yuba River, especially flow and temperature, is improving.
