Comments Off on Ten solutions to California’s drought

As California enters the fourth year of the worst drought in the state’s history, NASA estimates that 11 trillion gallons of water will be needed to recover from this arid rut. While Governor Jerry Brown has implemented a series of wide-ranging measures aimed at curbing water usage , there are efforts underway to engineer the state out of its drought. Some are fairly well-tested— desalination, for example —while others, such as William Shatner’s proposed $30 billion Seattle-Lake Mead pipeline , seem straight-up wacky. Read on to learn more about the good, the bad and the weird big-picture ideas for addressing California’s drought . Read the rest of Ten solutions to California’s drought

Comments Off on Lab finds real meat in one in ten “vegetarian” hot dogs

A food testing firm has discovered real meat in 10% of vegetarian hot dog brands they evaluated. Clear Foods, a food analysis startup, just released results of a report  examining 345 samples of hot dogs and other processed sausages, including 21 vegetarian alternatives. The test found problems in 14.4 percent of the samples, which industry experts say is not unusual or unexpected. The scientists at Clear Foods want consumers to beware, though, as their tests revealed not all vegetarian sausages are completely meat-free.

Comments Off on Largest toxic algae bloom in West Coast history may be linked to climate change

The west coast is awash in the largest toxic algae bloom ever for the region, according to researchers at the University of California at Santa Cruz. The bloom first appeared in May and now stretches from California up the coast to Washington state. The algae produces a neurotoxin called domoic acid that is potentially fatal to humans. Its increasing span and severity is likely to keep people out of the water.

Comments Off on Researchers are introducing non-native insects in a desperate attempt to battle Japanese knotweed

If you live in the US or the UK, you are probably familiar with the scourge of Japanese knotweed, even if you don’t know it. Japanese knotweed is one of the world’s most invasive plants and has colonized many disturbed and undisturbed ecosystems in Massachusetts and at least 38 other states. It has no predators in North America or Europe and is notoriously difficult to remove by force. As the armies of knotweed march ever forward, scientists in the UK are experimenting with a dramatic method of weed-killing: the introduction of a non-native, knotweed-loving insect to munch the stalks down to size.   Read the rest of Researchers are introducing non-native insects in a desperate attempt to battle Japanese knotweed Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: Aphalara itadori , beneficial insects , biological control , biological solutions , controlling japanese knotweed , ecosystem restoration , Fallopia japonica , Frederick Law Olmstead , green pest control , green weed control , invasive plants , invasive species , Japanese Knotweed , knotweed , New England invasives , non-native insects , non-native plants , pest control , psyllid , weed control , weeds
