If this is happening, humanity my never live long enough to see the recovery of the planetary ice. Even if we greatly reduced the CO2 levels. Lab experiments suggest that this ...more »

Multi-Jurisdictional Agency Support for Public Participation

Federal lands in county jurisdictions are not accountable for stormwater pollution prevention of state water bodies. Local jurisdictions (counties and cities) under regulation by regional state agencies -- with no authority to address federal land contributions to receiving water body impairments -- place the burden of correcting impaired conditions on local land owners in proximity to the water body, through public ...more »
