Dusty snow contributes to unusual water year …Posted: Wednesday, Oct 21st, 2009 …Run off came early …By Ruth Heide … excerpted … Valley Courier … Alamosa. Colorado … What researcher Chris Landry called a “Martian winter” was followed by an unusual summer in San Luis Valley water history.

Landry, executive director of the Center for Snow & Avalanche Studies, was one of the presenters at the quarterly Rio Grande Water Conservation District board meeting on Tuesday. He and others speaking to the board described this year as uncommon. Landry’s work associated with the Rio Grande Basin, and funded in part by the water district, specifically focuses on the effects of dust on snow, a factor that may have significantly contributed to the early runoff this year since dust and dirt cause snow to melt faster.

Landry and his team compared snow core samples to determine the number of dust events during a winter season. He reported an increase in dust events from 2008 to 2009 from 7 to 12 at the site studied in the Rio Grande Basin. The concentration of dust was heavier as well. In 2008 the concentration was 12 grams per meter while in 2009 it was 55 grams per meter. He said that is an enormous amount of material.

DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE . . . Perhaps I am too simple, too juvenile, too elementary, but I need your help…?

Very early in life as well as in formal education, I learned that DARK colors attract and hold heat, while LIGHTER colors reflect heat, so why do we find it strange that snow pack blanketed with a layer of dark soot would meld faster thereby altering runoff into our water sources…?

What may today be consider “unusual” water flow will tomorrow become the norm, and the day after, who knows…?

Long term whether this “dusty” snow is beneficial is, I suspect, highly suspect, but then, you and I were not invited to the table nor our input requested.

Mercury and Man

mercmanLess mercury expected in Utah, thanks to Nevada pact … State aims to cut the chemical element that drifts from gold ore processing. ….By Judy Fahys …The Salt Lake Tribune …Updated: 10/26/2009 05:18:57 PM MDT … excerpted … .A new deal between the state of Nevada and a gold-processing company located there is expected to mean less toxic mercury in Utah’s air and water.

…The Nevada Department of Environmental Protection and Queenstake Resources USA Ltd. signed a consent decree earlier this month that requires the company to do a better job of monitoring and reducing its mercury emissions. And additional controls could be required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as soon as next spring.

…The company, which reported releasing 1,069 pounds of mercury off-site in 2007 from its Jerritt Canyon gold operations, north of Elko, Nevada, has already started ramping up its “roasters” after being shut down over environmental violations in March 2008. After beefing up testing and equipment, Queenstake resumed gold processing for a month before the state ordered its operations shut down again for failing to meet a deadline on new control equipment.

Since Nevada’s crackdown began, suggested consumption limits have been issued over too-high levels of mercury in fish and waterfowl at more than a dozen locations in Utah. In addition, toxic mercury has been measured in the Great Salt Lake at some of the highest levels found anywhere in the United States.

Meanwhile, there’s a lot of interest in soon-to-be-announced federal standards, the first mercury-related rules for the gold industry.

The Sierra Club sued the Bush administration in 2001 over standards for toxic emissions that were due the previous year. Jim Pew, an attorney representing the environmental group in the case, said Utah should expect less mercury when the new regulations are finally in place. “It’s a good thing to control the pollution even when you don’t have perfect information because [mercury] is so toxic.”

DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE . . . While not the complete answer I stand to applaud this effort while inviting you to take the time to make yourself aware of the affects … mercury … has on life … especially mankind …

DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE . . . Every cloud has a silver lining and perhaps, just perhaps, shelving these freeway expenditures gives … “us” … that’s you and me … the time and the opportunity to take control over all governmental expenditures and honestly direct Arizona’s future.

But, “we” … that’s you and me …must own and accept that ultimate power and direction flows from us which requires that “we” become aware and accept accountability for all of our actions, especially those passively given….

YES … break them up

DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE . . . in reading Robert Reich posting I found myself musing on a line from Casablanca … “round up the usual suspects” … as they all reappear in Reich’s posting … but then you need to determine for yourself whether such is also true for you…?

I find myself concurring with Reich and …YES … the closely held, highly selective American financial cartel including banks needs to be broken up … but like Reich, I do not feel we have executive leadership at the moment willing to run that gauntlet.

…Robert Reich …Former Secretary of Labor, Professor at Berkeley …Posted: October 26, 2009 09:49 PM … Breaking Up the Big Banks and Why Congress Won’t Do It …And now there are five — five Wall Street behemoths, bigger than they were before the Great Meltdown, paying fatter salaries and bonuses to retain their so-called”talent,” and raking in huge profits. The biggest difference between now and last October is these biggies didn’t know then that they were too big to fail and the government would bail them out if they got into trouble. Now they do. And like a giant, gawking adolescent who’s just discovered he can crash the Lexus convertible his rich dad gave him and the next morning have a new one waiting in his driveway courtesy of a dad who can’t say no, the biggies will drive even faster now, taking even bigger risks.

What to do? Two ideas are floating around Washington, but only one is supported by the Treasury and the White House. Unfortunately, it’s the wrong one.

The right idea is to break up the giant banks. I don’t often agree with Alan Greenspan but he was right when he said last week that “[i]f they’re too big to fail, they’re too big.” Greenspan noted that the government broke up Standard Oil in 1911, and what happened? “The individual parts became more valuable than the whole. Maybe that’s what we need to do.” (Historic footnote: Had Greenspan not supported in 1999 Congress’s repeal of the Glass Steagall Act, which separated investment from commercial banking, we wouldn’t be in the soup we’re in to begin with.)

Former Fed Chair Paul Volcker, whose only problem is he’s much too tall, last week told the New York Times he’d like to see the restoration of the Glass-Steagall Act provisions that would separate the financial giants’ deposit-taking activities from their investment and trading businesses. If this separation went into effect, JPMorgan Chase would have to give up the trading operations acquired from Bear Stearns. Bank of America and Merrill Lynch would go back to being separate companies. And Goldman Sachs could no longer be a bank holding company.

But the Obama Administration doesn’t agree with either Greenspan or Volcker. While it says it doesn’t want another bank bailout, its solution to the ‘too big to fail’ problem doesn’t go nearly far enough. In fact, it doesn’t really go anywhere. The Administration would wait until a giant bank was in danger of failing and then put it into a process akin to bankruptcy. The bank’s assets would be sold off to pay its creditors, and its shareholders would likely walk off with nothing. The Treasury would determine when such a “resolution” process was needed, and appoint a receiver, such as the FDIC, to wind down the bank’s operations.

There should be an orderly process for putting big failing banks out of business. But this isn’t nearly enough. By the time a truly big bank gets into trouble — one that poses a “systemic risk” to the entire economy — it’s too late. Other banks, competing like mad for the same talent and profits, will already have adopted many of the excessively-risky banks’ techniques. And the pending failure will already have rocked the entire financial sector.

Worse yet, the Administration’s plan gives the big failing bank an escape hatch: The receiver might decide that the bank doesn’t need to go out of business after all — that all it needs is some government money to tide it over until the crisis passes. So the Treasury would also have the authority to provide the bank with financial assistance in the form of loans or guarantees. In other words, back to bailout. (Historical footnote: Summers and Geithner, along with Bob Rubin, while at Treasury in 1999, joined Greenspan in urging Congress to repeal Glass-Steagall. The four of them — Greenspan, Summers, Rubin and Geithner also refused to regulate derivatives, and pushed Congress to stop the Commodity Futures Trading Corporation from doing so.)

Congress is cooking up a variation on the “resolution” idea that would give the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation authority to trigger and handle the winding-down of big banks in trouble, without Treasury involvement, and without an escape hatch.

Needless to say, Wall Street favors the Administration’s approach — which is why the Administration chose it to begin with. If I were less charitable I’d say Geithner and Summers continue to bend over bankwards to make Wall Street happy, and in doing so continue to risk the credibility of the president, as well as the long-term financial stability of the system.

Wall Street could live with the slightly less delectable variation that Congress is coming up with. But Congress won’t go as far as to unleash the antitrust laws on the big banks or resurrect the Glass-Steagall Act. After all, the Street is a major benefactor of Congress and the Street’s lobbyists and lackeys are all over Capitol Hill.

The Street obviously detests the notion that its behemoths should be broken up. That’s why the idea isn’t even on the table. But it should be. No important public interest is served by allowing giant banks to grow too big to fail. Winding them down after they get into trouble is no answer. By then the damage will already have been done. … Whether it’s using the antitrust laws or enacting a new Glass-Steagall Act, the Wall Street giants should be split up — and soon. …Cross-posted from Robert Reich’s Blog. … Read more at: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-reich/breaking-up-the-big-banks_b_334814.html
