Salt used to remove road ice on Mount Charleston may kill trees, advocates say

 

 

By HENRY BREAN    LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL    The ice melted months ago from the roads on Mount Charleston, but its impact is easy to see.

High in Kyle and Lee canyons, brown patches of dead and dying trees bracket the highways, some of them 100-foot Ponderosa pines older than the Declaration of Independence.

It isn’t the cold that’s killing the trees. It’s the salt that gets scattered on the roads each winter to melt away snow and ice.

Workers from Clark County and the Nevada Department of Transportation apply roughly 300 tons of salt-based de-icing agent annually to the roads and parking lots within the popular Spring Mountains National Recreation Area.

 

UNLV researcher Dale Devitt said those chemicals inevitably wash off the pavement and into the root zones of plants that are poorly adapted to process salts. If the sodium chloride doesn’t kill them outright, it weakens the trees, leaving them vulnerable to drought, disease and infestation by bark beetles.

Devitt collected soil samples and published a paper on the impact of de-icing salts on Mount Charleston in 2014.

“We had places where the salinity was higher than what you’d find in seawater,” the soil and water scientist said. “That shouldn’t happen.”

Devitt is part of a growing chorus of researchers and mountain residents who want forest managers and transportation officials to find a new way to keep the roads clear, one that doesn’t hurt the environment. At the very least, Devitt would like to see additional testing of ice treatments that are less likely to foul groundwater and damage trees

UNBELIEVABLE: Not Once did Obama Meet with His Own Defense Intel Chief

 

07-14-2016 • http://www.dcclothesline.com  Michael T. Flynn has been in the news quite a bit lately. The former Army general and lifelong Democrat was once the deputy director of national intelligence and later became the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, which were both positions that he was appointed to by President Obama. After being forced into retirement for being outspoken on the threat posed by radical Islam, he has spent his days criticizing America’s foreign policy regarding ISIS, has become an ardent supporter of Donald Trump, and is widely speculated to be his future running mate.

With that said, it’s no surprise that Flynn doesn’t have anything nice to say about the administration that sacked him. In fact, during a recent interview with the Daily Caller, he spilled the beans on the ineptitude of Obama and the short-sighted nature of his foreign policy.

According to Flynn, President Obama never once met him in person while he was running the Defense Intelligence Agency. Even as Libya and Egypt were falling apart and ISIS was gaining ground, he never saw the General, who likely had all of the information needed to prevent these catastrophes.

"Here I am, running one of the largest intelligence agencies in the world."He told the Daily Caller "He appoints me twice — one as the assistant director of national intelligence and one as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. I’m also his senior intelligence officer. And I had almost five years in combat…I never met with him once."

This isn’t the first time he has made a claim of this magnitude. Last year he became thehighest ranking official to admit that the government was sponsoring radical Islamic groups in Syria. ..Read Full Story

Staunch Conservative Mike Pence to Be Trump’s Running Mate

In a nod to the GOP’s hard-right, Trump will likely choose a governor who sought to legalize discrimination.

By Elizabeth Preza / AlterNetJuly 14, 2016 …….The Indianapolis Star reports that Indiana Gov. Mike Pence will drop his re-election bid and assume the role of Donald Trump’s vice presidential candidate, according to sources familiar with the Republican frontrunner’s decision.

 

The reports come after weeks of speculation over who Trump will choose as his running mate; his campaign vetted a number of high-profile Republicans—including Newt Gingrich and Chris Christie—in a series of meet-and-greets and campaign rallies designed to test the potential running mate’s viability.

The Trump campaign was quick to insist the candidate has not yet made a formal decision, but Trump campaign officials did not dispute questions posed by theWashington Post about Pence’s likely role in the upcoming election.

Hillary essentially endorsed the “progressive” platform as described by Bernie Sanders

…There was an unstated caveat that Hillary would in fact as well as word prove her allegiance to the “progressive” democratic platform…   Failure on Hillary’s part opens the door for millions either not voting or rebelling and voting for Trump…

No Liberal: Hillary Is Pro Multinational and Pro Military-Industrial Complex

                                                                                                    

07-14-2016 • http://www.thedailybell.com …That’s why I pledge that in my first 100 days as president, we will make the biggest investment in new good-paying jobs since World War II. We need more jobs you can support a family on, especially in places that have been left out and left behind, from Coal Country, to Indian Country, to inner cities, to every place that has been hollowed out when a factory closed or a mine shut down.  –Recent Hillary Speech from TIME magazine

TIME magazine among other publications gives Hillary Clinton a lot of positive coverage. It recently reproduced a full speech of hers which dealt mostly with "unification and community," two favorite themes of hers.

But in this article, we’ll show clearly that Hillary is pro-multinational and pro-military-industrial complex. Those are her main planks, even if she rarely talks about them.

The speech as presented by TIME provides us with a vision of Hillary as a peaceful person whose main focus as president will be the greater good of America’s poor and middle-classes.

The propaganda surrounding Hillary’s political stances is much different than the truth.

In fact an analysis of the "big investment" Hillary plans shows that the investment will be made via taxing trillions in offshore  revenue.

In a June post at the Intercept entitled, "Hillary Clinton Hints at Giant, Trump-Like Giveaway to Corporate America,"  Jon Schwarz analyzes plans for Hillary’s big investment and concludes it will be paid for by aggressive tax reductions on multinationals.

[Here speech] was full of Bernie Sanders-like rhetoric about "outrageous behavior" by business and Wall Street.  But it also included a dog whistle that only huge multinational corporations would hear, telling them that she plans to deliver on one of their greatest dreams and slash their longterm taxes by hundreds of billions of dollars.

The heart of this plan will be an "infrastructure bank … that will bring private sector dollars off the sidelines and put them to work here."

But where would the money come from? Schwarz suggests it might come in taxes from trillions the nation’s largest corporations have stored overseas.

Congress granted corporations a tax holiday in 2004 that let them bring back their profits at a tax rate of about 5 percent, or one-seventh of what the normal tax law required. Clinton, then a senator from New York, voted for it.

The incentives haven’t changed since then, so profits held overseas by U.S. multinationals have accumulated again and have now reached an incredible $2.4 trillion. That’s about 65 percent of the 2015 federal budget and 13 percent of the entire U.S. economy.

The law Hillary is apparently contemplating  would tax corporations whether or not they repatriated funds, but would also radically reduce their taxes.

Clinton has been vague about these plans but, meeting in April with the New York Daily News editorial board she indicated infrastructure money "may be [acquired by] repatriation."

Schwarz also quotes her as saying, she intends to bring "private sector dollars off the sidelines and put them to work here."

That phrase — bringing corporate money "off the sidelines" — is a favorite of both Democratic and Republican elites to describe slashing the tax rate on overseas profits.

Hillary intends to repatriate this revenue by making a deal with transnational corporations that have legally kept their profits offshore.

She wants to change the law to gain access to some of that revenue and then intends to use that revenue to fund infrastructure efforts and other forms of job creation.

The ability to unlock this offshore revenue is one reason why she is confident she will be able to work with Republicans in the House and Senate – as they would like to gain access to those funds as well.

Most importantly, however, the deal will enhance the functionality of transnational corporations. They will be able to operate more normally since they can brings funds back to the US.

There are other ways that Clinton intends to support the nation’s largest multinationals.

Despite rhetorical opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, she won’t oppose it, per Robert Reich, Bill Clinton’s former Secretary of Labor.  …He recently revealed a conversation with a Clinton advisor that he placed on his Facebook page.  Read Full Story
