    The shale gas boom has transformed the energy landscape in the U.S., but in some drier locations, it could cause conflict among the energy industry, residents and agricultural interests over already-scarce water resources, say researchers. They add that degraded water quality is a potential risk unless there are adequate safeguards.

    In true Italian style, Fiat brought the drama to its 500L launch event in Baltimore this week. Not only did it provide a small monsoon during the presentation, barely allowing us to hear thickly Italian-accented public relations flacks, it also sent a tornado into BWI Airport, hoping to keep journalists there for another day of driving. Thankfully, during the on-road testing portion, it was all sun and sunroofs. Read the full story here.

  • Ask yourself: Will you help the environment?

    22 Apr 2014 | 8:34 am
    Whether it's recycling, composting or buying environmentally friendly products, guilt can be a strong motivator -- not just on Earth Day. Now, research proves that even just asking ourselves, or predicting, whether we will engage in sustainable shopping behavior can increase the likelihood of following through -- especially when there's an audience.
  • Earth Week: Bark beetles change Rocky Mountain stream flows, affect water quality

    21 Apr 2014 | 1:43 pm
    On Earth Week -- and in fact, every week now -- trees in mountains across the western United States are dying, thanks to an infestation of bark beetles that reproduce in the trees' inner bark. In Colorado alone, the mountain pine beetle has caused the deaths of more than 3.4 million acres of pine trees. What effect do all these dead trees have on stream flow and water quality? Plenty, according to new research findings reported this week.
  • Findings shed light on seagrass needs

    17 Apr 2014 | 1:41 pm
    Seagrass beds, which provide home and food for fish, manatees, sea turtles and other animals, find themselves in peril. A new study shows how much sunlight is needed to keep the seagrass healthy. Loss of seagrass means fish, crabs and other animals lose their homes and manatees and sea turtles lose a source of food. Nutrients, such as phosphorous, may prevent seagrass from getting the sunlight it needs to thrive. Nutrients may come from many sources, among them fertilizers used in agriculture, golf courses and suburban lawns, pet waste and septic tank waste.

    Recycling News

    San Francisco's bag ordinance won its latest and final legal battle last week when the state Supreme Court unanimously rejected a petition to review a Court of Appeals ruling. The appellate ruling in December affirmed a lower court ruling that, contrary to the complaint filed by the plastic bag industry, San Francisco's bag ban for all retail stores and restaurants did not violate the California Environmental Quality Act, nor was it preempted by CA Retail Food Code.  This is the third time a petition for review on a bag ban ruling has been rejected by the Supreme Court.

    By 2019, countries in the European Union will be using 80% less plastic bags, as set by a directive passed by the Parliament on April 15, 2014. An earlier 50% reduction goal (based on 2010 numbers) is set for 2017. Once it becomes law, each individual country will have the option of placing a charge on their bags or adopting an outright ban depending on the model that works best for them.  Ireland passed the first bag levy in the world in 2002, which is currently set at 22 euro cents. Others that have followed with various charges for plastic carryout bags include Wales, Northern Island, and…

    Moore Recycling Associates released their annual National Postconsumer Plastic Bag & Film Recycling Report for 2012, on behalf of the American Chemistry Council. While 2012 marks a 1% increase over 2011 overall collection rate, the volume of postconsumer bags and packaging wrap decreased by 7%.  The report highlights the poor recovery of plastic bags.  In California, despite a 2006 law requiring all CA grocery stores to take back and recycle plastic grocery bags, the recycling rate for plastic bags is less than 5%. We've given recycling plastic bags a try. Now, its time to ban…

    Here is another great use of recycled denim hem strips from your old jeans. This project uses a strip of hem along with a recycled glass jar to make a handy match holder. Take the screw-on lid from the jar and drill a hole into the lid top for the match opening. Then using the lid as a template, trace around it on a piece of sandpaper. Cut out the sandpaper and glue it onto the lid top as shown. Here is the top with the sandpaper glued on the lid. Here is a closeup on the inside of the lid.

    It’s been 5 years since I first crocheted a baseball type cap from recycled plastic bags. Recently someone asked me to clarify some of the pattern details so I thought it might be a good idea to re-work the pattern. If you read my blog last month, you might remember me blogging about these pretty pink plastic bags that an on-line friend sent me. Well I used them to create pink plarn and crocheted this recycled baseball cap using about 20 plastic bags. The pattern worked up a little different with this crochet project but generally the hat came out looking about the same. I did have to…

    The length of this car is amazing! What can we say about Lincoln circa 1966, except that it is everything the Lincoln of today is not? The automaker has taken a step forward with the MKZ, but it’s going to take awhile to straighten out its once-prestigious house.  In 1966, there was no MK-everything alphabet soup. There was just the Continental, and that was enough. The Continental’s advertisements were as understated as its styling (though we prefer the details seen on the earlier years of this body style). Take this example, pulled from a moldering issue of Status magazine.

    It is always nice to rent a little something special that you would not normally drive but Hertz has upped the ante!! Hertz has officially resurrected the spirit of the company’s Rent-A-Racer program, albeit on a slightly different level. If that name sounds familiar, it should. Carroll Shelby famously struck a deal with the rental car company back in 1966, and the result was a fleet of Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 for rent.

Thankfully, during the on-road testing portion, it was all sun and sunroofs. Read the full story here.

    What do you buy for the car collector who has everything? Apparently, an RUF CTR-3. Ralph Lauren, the fashion mogul and vintage-car collector, recently took delivery of an RUF CTR-3, according to people familiar with the deal. Lauren was snapped by the car-parazzi taking it for a spin recently in the Hamptons. A spokesman for Lauren declined comment. For super-rich car collectors, the RUF is one of those cult brands with a storied past and a reputation for high performance.

    Be a Precycling Champion Recycling is great, but it doesn’t take care of all our problems. Preventing waste before it happens is a practice known as precycling, and small actions really add up. Between 1960 and 2008, the amount of waste each person creates has almost doubled from 2.7 to 4.5 pounds per day. The most effective way to stop this trend is by preventing waste in the first place. You may already be finding ways to precycle and you didn’t even know it! Take a look at these precycling ideas and incorporate them into your lifestyle: 1. Borrow or rent items when possible.
