Why Offshore Oil Drilling is So Bad For The Environment On October 1, a ruptured pipeline resulted in 25,000 gallons of crude spilling into the Pacific Ocean near Orange County, California. While the spill wasn't as bad as initially feared, it reignited a debate over offshore drilling. California has an aging pipeline infrastructure with questionable federal oversight. And this wasn't the only large oil spill this year. Less than a month ago, after Hurricane Ida, a federal satellite detected the most oil spills from space in the Gulf of Mexico after a weather event. The federal government started using satellites to track spills and leaks starting a decade ago. The Takeaway spoke with Catherine Kilduff, Senior Attorney at The Center for Biological Diversity, and Wilma Subra, who deals with environmental human health issues, on behalf of the Louisiana Environmental Action Network. Biden Administration Plans to Rein In "Forever Chemicals" On Monday, the Biden administration unveiled its plans to rein in so-called “forever chemicals,” or PFAS. PFAS refers to a group of more than 4,000 toxic chemicals that don't break down in the environment. PFAS are found in everything from our drinking water to our cookware. Even some rain jackets and cosmetics contain PFAS. But PFAS are also hazardous for our health. In fact, they've been linked with certain cancers, thyroid disease, and other health impacts, too. For more on this, The Takeaway spoke to Pat Rizzuto, chemicals reporter with Bloomberg Law. Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach Are Now Running 24/7 Last week, President Biden announced that the Port of Los Angeles will move towards operating 24/7 to address the shipping delays that have led to nationwide supply chain disruptions this year. The Port of Long Beach has also expanded its operations towards a 24/7 schedule in an attempt to solve the supply chain issue. The Takeaway hears from Dr. Afif El-Hasan, Physician-in-Charge at Kaiser Permanente San Juan Capistrano Medical Offices and spokesperson for the American Lung Association, as well as Mario Cordero, the executive director of the Port of Long Beach.

Senator Joni Ernst, native of Red Oak, Iowa, has dedicated her life to her state and country, having served in the military for over 23 years and now in the United States Senate.In November 2014, Joni was elected as the first woman to serve in federal elected office from the State of Iowa and also became the first female combat veteran elected to serve in the United States Senate. In Washington, Joni serves on four Senate committees of major importance to Iowans: Armed Services; Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry; Environment and Public Works; and Small Business and Entrepreneurship.Joni is focused on growing a vibrant economy and ensuring the government runs effectively and efficiently which means cutting out-of-control spending, reducing taxes, eliminating harmful regulations and balancing the budget.Born and raised on a farm in Montgomery County, Joni's parents instilled in her the values important to Iowans: hard work, service and sacrifice. As a mother, soldier and independent voice, Joni is committed to bringing these values to Washington, D.C.Joni received her undergraduate degree from Iowa State University where she joined the university's ROTC program. After graduating, Joni joined the U.S. Army Reserves. In 2003, Joni served as a company commander in Kuwait and Iraq, leading 150 Iowa Army National Guardsmen during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Joni retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Iowa Army National Guard after 23 years of military service.Known for her independent leadership and commitment to public service, Joni previously served as the Montgomery County Auditor where she worked to eliminate wasteful government spending and protect taxpayers' hard-earned dollars. As a state senator, Joni fought to balance the state budget and helped turn Iowa's $900 million budget deficit into a $1 billion surplus. In addition to her work to balance the budget, Joni worked tirelessly to grow jobs and the economy, cut taxes, improve education, and reduce the role of government in Iowans' lives.
In the third episode of our mini-series on environmental sustainability across the coffee industry, we're shifting the focus to carbon reduction in coffee roasteries. In conversations with a leading academic, an electric roaster manufacturer, and coffee roasters, large and small, we unpack where carbon is generated once green coffee leaves the farm and how coffee roasters can make their operations as sustainable as possible.Mark Maslin, Professor of Earth Systems Science at University College London provides an overview of the life cycle of a cup of coffee and where carbon is generated across the supply chain.Grayson Caldwell, Head of Sustainability, Bellwether Coffee, discusses the urgent need to electrify coffee roasting and the environmental benefits vs. traditional gas roasting.Ewan Reid, Managing Director, Matthew Algie, shares how his business is tackling the challenges of carbon production in large-scale roasting operations.Bengt Ove Hagen, Production Director, Joh. Johannson Kaffe shares how his team designed a brand new eco-focused roasting facility and their ambitions to become one of the world's most sustainable coffee roasters.Read more on Bellwether's annual sustainability report here.

Interview with Katie Storey In this episode, I had the amazing chance to talk about something that I have been passionate about for years with the talented and knowledgeable Katie Storey! Katie Storey is the founder and principal designer of Storey Design, a full-service interiors firm based in San Francisco. She has been recognized by California Home & Design, Wallpaper, Vogue, Domino, Luxe Interiors, and World of Interiors. She is also the founder of the Good Future Design Alliance, an alliance of design and builds professionals committed to reducing waste in the industry. “I had two choices: start this movement or change careers.” The waste Katie was seeing every day in her interior design practice kept her up at night. The breaking point came when she ordered a couch from Oakland for a client in San Francisco, which was promptly sent 3000 miles to a distribution center in North Carolina before being shipped back to the Bay Area. Katie knew the sustainability initiatives she was implementing as a small design firm, although necessary, weren't enough. She also knew that meaningful and lasting change would require greater industry involvement. Katie began to brainstorm ways she could prompt radical changes in the design & build industry, & connected with her greater SF community to see what could be done. After building relationships with Recology and SF's Department of the Environment, she began creating what is now the Good Future Design Alliance – a movement to dramatically reduce waste and change the way my industry does business. They are new in their form, but with the wisdom and experience of leading designers, builders, and makers, they are here for the long fight toward a better future. Through the episode, Katie shares her story and the journey that led her to start the GFDA. For decades, the design industry has been wasteful and not focused or conscious of the carbon footprint nor the environmental impact of the products and services that are used. However, in recent years, there's been a shift as people are realizing how important the planet and living healthy is for our present and future. I shared details about my own firm's journey to sustainability, and Katie and I talked more about the many issues designers face when trying to source and work more sustainably, and she even provided some solutions. There is a way to DO better and find a balance in the design industry. Words of Wisdom: If we can survive the pandemic and adjust, we can definitely adjust and meet this climate moment!

Aucklanders may not be able to go anywhere at the moment, but sprinkers are back, and so is a long hot shower, with water restrictions being lifted this weekend. Tighter rules for water use were put in place in May last year, when the region's dams fell to low levels due to drought and continuing dry weather. Now with dams at 93 percent full, Auckland Council's governing body has loosened the tap. Chen Liu reports.
The accelerating adoption of wind and solar energy is driving a growing interest in energy storage technologies. An electric grid dominated by intermittent power sources will need large-scale energy storage. Grid-scale energy storage is expected to increase at least 10 times over the next decade and this will require nearly $300 billion in investments over […]

Part 1: The Aggregation of Marginal GainsHabits are really about identity change. Behaviour change is simply the means to get there (the feedback loop).What are atomic habits? They are the smallest possible habits, tiny little things that you can begin doing easily for remarkable changes.Example: The British cycling team wasn't doing so well until their new coach, Dave Brailsford, implemented very small, incremental changes: things like trying out different tires or massage lotions to increase recovery time.They did not see immediate results, but the gains accumulate over time. This known as the aggregation of marginal gains.The idea here is if you only get 1% better every day in a specific task by the end of the year you are 37% better. Which is great, but the real magic comes when you multiply the effect across years.“Small habits don't add up. They compound.”James Clear Dave Brailsford and British Cycling, as of 2018, won 5 of the last 6 Tour de France events with 3 different riders, capturing dozens of gold medals, and setting many Olympic and World Records in the process. Their system works.Note: the optimization apparently continued outside of the parameters into the gray zones… and now it's sort of Lance Armstrong all over again.Part 2: Slow Burnit's not about getting what you want, the power of habits is the change who you are. Or who you want to become.James clear's analogy for the challenge of change is the Ice Cube. If the Ice Cube is in a room at 23 degrees, and you heat up the room by 1°, nothing happens. This is like me being on a diet for one week. But you could heat up the room 1 degree eight or nine more times (and maybe you should consider that eight or nine years) but when it hits that magical 32° the ice begins to melt.The lesson that Clear and other authors articulate is that it takes between 5 to 8 years to become an overnight success. And during this time, pretty much no one will see a difference, but suddenly, there will be a state change.To describe this, he introduces The Plateau of Latent Potential & The Valley of Disappointment.We are getting 1% better every day. We expect that arrow on the chart to keep pointing up with steady lineal progress, but Clear says that it is actually more like a plateau before we rise exponentially.He cautions where you place your emphasis: outcome metrics will vary, but if your process is good, such as showing up every day and staying on a schedule, the results will show up. It just might take another 3 or 4 years… If my system is good.“You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.”James ClearHaving big goals is normal… everyone has a dream, but having big passion alone will not get us there. It is the daily systems we put in place that get us there.But to do this, we must also be aware.“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”James ClearDo you remember the story about the Elephant and the Rider? Where the rider (ego) thinks they are in control, but the unconscious is an elephant… and if it decides to walk left, we tend to pretend we (as the rider) are in control and rationalize the direction saying “yes, I always wanted to go that direction anyway.”To change your path, you must be aware of your unconscious patterns and behaviors.The insight here is that we tend to think our habits help us achieve a goal… but really, habits are behaviors that determine our identity.your identity feeds your habits, and your habits feed your identity, forming a feedback loop.So, this is not about just collecting hacks or forming odd habits: focus on the big goals, learn to embody your values.One thing you can do when looking for the path to manifest your values is to ask yourself: what kind of person writes a book? What kind of person has success in this space? You hear that Hemmingway started writing at 5:00 AM everyday and wrote for 3 hours no matter how hungover. If you take on this habit, your identity will change: you will become a writer (but hopefully not a heavy drinker.)One way to consider all of this is to both PUSH and PULL yourself.Set the goal and let it PULL you forward: let that dangling carrot inspire you and drive you. Let the habits PUSH you. It may feel odd to enact behaviors (copycat or mimicry) that you do not fully comprehend at first, but sometimes merely performing the action can lead you to the insight and benefits, which over time can manifest a change in interior motivations as well.Part 3: Habit Stackyour habits are just the automated solutions that solve the problems your brain faces regularly.James ClearWe can hack our environmental awareness to stack things together, making a mutually reinforcing chain of behaviors, or habits.To form a new habit, we have a cue that triggers craving, which prompts a response, and then we get our reward.But the “cue” can be developed, we can hack it, according to Time, location, or even by a preceding event, so you can trigger cues to link or stack habits together ~ potentially driving out old bad habits and replacing them with potentially good habits.Simple Habit Stack: Every time you close your laptop, do 10 pushups.Mental Habit Stack: In a more complicated version, [[Tom Bilyeu]] from[[impact theory]] says that after meditating you have just reduced a lot of cognitive distress and anxiety. During this kind of super open and calm state anything you do afterwards should be more focused and your brain should be more receptive. So for instance you would stack meditation and journaling future goals together. Or meditate, then read, allowing your mind to absorb the content without the typical daily cognitive anxiety.Physical habit stacks: When you workout your body becomes super absorptive of protein or anything else you put in your body… for about 20 minutes post workout. This is a peak window that you should take advantage of for gains and decreased soreness and inflammation.This “knowledge of knowledge”, knowing when you can maximize your efforts with a little stack allows habits to interlock and become routines.Part 4: Environment“Sometimes success is less about making good habits easy and more about making bad habits hard.”James ClearBut what about bad habits, temptation, and will power? The latest science shows that will power is like a battery charge: if you use it all up, you have to go to sleep to re-charge and get more of it.I did an episode, Step 19: Breakdown of Will on a book by George Ainslie, where he shows how understanding temptation (and reward paths) can also lead us understanding how willpower functions.We need to change our thinking, we need to consider will-power and discipline as a limited resource, not a character trait. Then we can begin to set up your life to not only avoid temptation, like food or procrastination, but also we can make our environment serve us by limiting bad distractions, and planting good ones.Small behavior hack: if you don't drink enough water, simply put bottles or glasses of water all around you when you start your day, so you no longer need the willpower to walk all the way to the fridge to get water every so often.This is modifying your environment, which can be part of a habit stack: when you enter your office gather the empty water bottles from yesterday and fill them all up again and disperse them, before you let yourself get a cup of coffee. Or if you need a reward habit stack, flip it: every time you drink a cup of water you reward yourself with a cup of coffee, or you get to check Instagram for 5 minutes. whatever your drug is, but be careful of these REWARD Stacks… at the end of the day we don't want to train ourselves to be entitled to a reward for doing something so mundane as drinking water.Clear says, your environment is an “invisible hand” that guides your behavior.“What often looks like a lack of willpower is actually the result of a poor environment.”James ClearRight, but how do you do this? If you know you have limited willpower then early in the day (while you are still fresh and full of discipline vigor) you can set up your environment to aid that weak willed ninny that you become in the afternoons.If you suffer from checking social media, then early in the day you set a software to block it until after work.If you eat too much at lunch, pre-pack your lunch into a smaller Tupperware container. Like Odysseus tied to the mast, take the decision away from the future you.“Winners often win because their environment makes winning easier.”James Clear

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 10-15-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of October 18, 2021. SOUND – ~8 sec This week, those abrupt stops to the sounds of the Roanoke River, Gray Tree Frogs, and a household water faucet set the stage for an episode marking the observance of “Imagine a Day without Water,” to be held this year on October 21. We start with some music designed to help you do such imagining. Have a listen for about 40 seconds. MUSIC - ~42 sec – instrumental You've been listening to “Flow Stopper,” by Torrin Hallett, a graduate student at the Yale School of Music. Besides flowing rivers, calling frogs, and household faucets, almost any aspect of life could be affected by a lack of water, including the biological structures and functions that make life possible. Increasing the awareness of water uses and needs is a goal of the “Imagine a Day Without Water” campaign. According to the event's Web site, the effort is, quote, “a national education campaign that brings together diverse stakeholders to highlight how water is essential, invaluable, and in need of investment,” unquote. The event is part of the “Value of Water Campaign,” focused on water infrastructure needs. These campaigns are coordinated by the US Water Alliance, a non-profit organization made up of people from water utilities, government, business, other non-profits, communities, and research establishments. Worldwide, billions of people don't have to imagine lacking good water. According to the United Nations, as of 2019 over 2 billion people lacked access to safely managed drinking water, and over 4 billion people lacked access to safely managed sanitation. In the United States, the American Society of Civil Engineers' water infrastructure “Report Card” for 2021 estimated over $1 trillion needed through 2029 for drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater, with $434 billion of that not yet funded. And in Virginia, the Department of Environmental Quality's 2020 “Water Resources Report” identified several water challenges, including maintaining groundwater availability over the next 50 years; coordinating water planning among localities; gauging the impact of unpermitted water withdrawals; understanding stream water quality and ecology; and investing in water-resources personnel, science, and education. Water is fundamental for energy, commerce, industry, agriculture, aquatic and terrestrial life, and human biology. Imagining a day without water—and learning about where water's lacking—can help us envision and work toward well-watered future days. Thanks to Torrin Hallett for composing this week's music for Virginia Water Radio, and we close with another listen to the last 10 seconds of “Flow Stopper.” MUSIC - 10 sec – instrumental SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.

Researchers analyzed spotted skunk DNA and found that rather than the four skunk species previously recognized by science, there are actually seven. Referred to as the “acrobats of the skunk world” these small carnivores use impressive handstands to warn predators that a noxious spray is coming their way. The plains spotted skunk (included among them) is in significant decline, but figuring out the different species lineages may inform and aid conservation efforts.

“We did see that the industry accelerated its energy transition and many of the companies, during the height of the pandemic, were announcing their zero goals… and announced production cuts going forward over the next decade through automation and looking for opportunities to do this, and the pandemic was certainly an accelerator.” Katie Pavolvsky, Deloitte Energy on Electric Ladies Podcast Energy consumption and prices plummeted during the pandemic, which was a wake-up call to the oil and gas sector. With the big UN Climate Conference known as COP26 coming up in days, the huge spotlight on ESG investing and strategies (for Environment, Social and Governance), plus President Biden's infrastructure bills with lots of provisions affecting the energy sector moving through Congress, Joan wanted to talk to an expert in the oil and gas sector about how the sector is coping and pivoting. So, what are the energy companies doing in response? Listen to Katie Pavlovsky, head of Deloitte's Energy, Resources and Industrial Services break it down with Electric Ladies host Joan Michelson in this insightful and engaging interview. You'll hear about: What ESG looks like for the oil and gas companies, one decision at a time. How the pandemic was a dry-run of what a transition to a clean energy economy will look and feel like, especially for the oil and gas sector that saw their bottom lines fall through the floor. Why the ESG focus is also improving efficiencies, which creates new types of jobs for the sector and, therefore, opens the door to more diverse talent. How the combination of hybrid work and the drive toward greater transparency are highlighting the reputational as well as financial risks of not adapting fast enough to this changing energy ecosystem. Plus, insightful career advice …. “Even within energy and on the topics of environmental, social, and governance, what is the role that women can play in particular, in moving forward that agenda and driving earlier results just based on the networks that they have with each other?” Katie Pavolvsky on the Electric Ladies podcast Read Joan's related Forbes articles here too. You'll also want to listen to: Jennifer Gerbi, Ph.D., Deputy Director and Acting Director, ARPA-E, the innovation arm of the Department of Energy Lisa Jacobson, Business Council for Sustainable Energy, on the impact of covid on energy and transitioning to a clean energy economy Anne Kelly, VP of Government Relations at nonprofit Ceres, which helps businesses and policy come together for the planet and people, as well as the economy Michele Wucker, thought leaders and author of “You Are What You Risk: The New Art & Science to Navigating an Uncertain World.” Subscribe to our newsletter to receive our podcasts, blog, events and special coaching offers..

One of the biggest concerns of young people today is that of the environment; our relationship to it, and our responsibility for it. This is something that's often overlooked or pushed to the side by the evangelical church, and something we need to be more aware of in terms of how we relate to, and are perceived by, secular culture.Author, YouTube apologist, and former member of the band ZOEgirl Alisa Childers comes on to help the regulars in discussing how we as Christians can meet people where they are at in terms of environmental concerns, and how we can strive to further remove barriers that would discourage people from coming to Jesus.The guys are also joined by Steiger missionary Moah Buffalo from Sao Paulo, Brazil who shares a story from the mission; how God is moving in Houston!David also reveals Chad's plans to create a new, albeit familiar sounding, Boy band.

On the Profitable Joyful Consulting podcast, I teach you how to increase your profits and enjoy your business more. In this episode, you'll learn how to cultivate an abundance mindset as a consultant. One of the biggest insights I ever had in my business was this: I can't help a person grow their business unless they are personally willing to receive more and more money. That simple fact led to a lot of my work being not just about business growth, but about helping individuals open up to abundance and to receiving more and more money. I want you to be rich, and in our work together, I'm working to make you rich. If there's a part of you which is in conflict with that, we need to work with that part of you so you can open up to more abundance. In this episode, I discuss: 0:33 What we need to look at to open up to more abundance 0:52 What the part of you that's in conflict with abundance needs from you 1:58 What an environment of abundance can trigger 2:19 What “everything's expensive” is an opportunity for 2:28 How to access abundance that's right outside of your comfort zone 3:05 How to expand what you can receive 6:08 A simple test to see how much you can receive 6:40 Why my husband and I affirmed to ourselves “good thing we're rich!” in the early days of my business and what it shifted for us 8:30 Other ways to affirm bringing abundance into your life 9:30 A critical habit to build that will help you shift limiting beliefs about money 12:08 How money is connected to what is actually inspiring and motivating to you Tune into this episode to discover how to raise your abundance mindset and transform limiting beliefs around money.

This week my guest is Ray Delucci. He's the founder of Line Cook Thoughts, a platform that shares the stories of food service workers. This is done through his website, social media, and podcast of the same name. Ray is an advocate for a better foodservice industry in regards to lifestyle and work environment, and believes that these workers' stories should be heard.Ray is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, and has been working in kitchens since he was a teenager. He recently left his restaurant job, and moved to Maryland to take a job in food manufacturing and R&D. We talk about that decision, and the current state of the restaurant industry. Our conversation touches on topics such as the labor shortage, leadership in the kitchen, work/life balance and why cooks are leaving the food industry. Ray talks about his podcast, and writing for Plate Magazine. At the time of our discussion, Ray was quarantining at home due to a breakthrough case of Covid. That lead us to talk about how Covid has affected the food industry, and we speculate about the what the near future might look like. Also, I was a guest on the Line Cook Thoughts podcast, and that episode can be heard here. Looking to hire employees for your restaurant?

Wind turbines keep getting bigger and bigger. The reason is that the power a wind turbine can theoretically generate is proportional to the disk-shaped area swept out by its blades. So, the bigger the blades, the more power can be produced by a single turbine. That being said, real-world turbines don't achieve their theoretical power […]
