Comments Off on Massive 1,000 LB Butter Sculpture Will Power Pennsylvania Farm for Three Days

Each year the Pennsylvania Farm Show unveils a series of giant butter sculptures , and this year the mother of them all was revealed – a 1,000 pound piece of butter art. The sculpture depicts a 4-H member receiving a ribbon for a prized calf at the county fair. When the show is over, the sculpture’s creator Jim Victor of Conshohocken, Montgomery County will donate all 1,000 pounds of it to the Juniata County Dairy Farm, which will place it in a methane digester to generate 65 kilowatt-hours of electricity to run the farm.

Comments Off on Researchers Predict Another Huge Japan Earthquake Likely in the Next 4 Years

Researchers have released the worrisome results of a study showing that there is a 70% possibility of a  7.0 magnitude earthquake hitting Tokyo in the next four years and a whopping 98% possibility that it could happen in the next 30 years. It has been almost a year since a devastating 9.0 magnitude earthquake rocked the coast of Japan and took the lives and homes of thousands of people, and to prevent the same widespread damage from happening,  Japanese scientists have been working hard to predict the foreseeable future of another quake. But as you can see, the prognosis is not an optimistic one.

Back to the regularly scheduled programming of offshore drilling, dominant oil companies calling the shots, and the same backwards-looking energy policy we had before BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded , killing 11 men and inflicting upon the Gulf of Mexico the worst environmental disaster the US has ever seen.
