I’m a little bemused by this. Is the smell and thus chemical, in the bottle, outside the bottle, permeating the bottle? Never mind, I just answered my own question. Chlorophenol + Fungi= 2,4,6-trichloroanisole. 2,4,6-tribromoanisole is a by-product of 2,4,6-trichloroanisole. It’s called “tainted cork odor” in wines and it loooves to attach to poly plastics.

More health stuff:

Women’s’ eNews reports that in the January issue of “Obstetrics and Gynecology”, that a small study involving 95 women with an injection of Depo-Provera, 45 suffered bone loss in their lower backs and hips. Go HERE for their blurb. Then go HERE if you want to purchase the article from Obstetrics and Gynecology. If I were on it, I’d think about buying a copy of the report and discussing it with my doctor. Also, why not think about a bone density test? It doesn’t hurt to have a baseline  to compare against.

This is a victory for now. However, as the article states, Kaiser Eagle Mountain has not given up on trying to important parts of the Mojave Desert into landfill. I can’t believe they have really given full thought to the discharge implications in the quickly saturating sandy soil either. This is a gorgeous special place, and it must not be allowed to happen, ever.

Joshua Tree Landfill Victory

Joshua Tree National Park’s Eagle Mountains conjure up images of remote desert peaks, a boundless blue sky and the namesake bird of prey that soars above pristine canyons.  But for many of us, Eagle Mountain brings to mind the ongoing battle over the proposed Eagle Mountain Landfill, to be located on lands belonging to Kaiser Eagle Mountain, Inc.  and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which also happens to be surrounded on three sides by Joshua Tree National Park wilderness.

I don’t know what’s with the BLM. I thought at first this stuff was leftover from BushCo. Now I think it might be some new Democrat horror. Under Bush deals for land and leases were made right and left. I’m starting to get a stomach knot looking at this Auction Schedule.

Then there is this:

[…Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and BLM Director Bob Abbey are featured in a new video prepared for BLM’s Renewable Energy Summit, held in Las Vegas, NV, in late August.  Secretary Salazar describes how the “vast stretches of public lands we manage…give our Department, and particularly the Bureau of Land Management, a leading role in realizing the vision of this program.” …

…The BLM received $305 million to help stimulate the economy through investments in the National System of Public Lands. A total of $41 million for 65 projects will be used to facilitate a rapid and responsible move to large-scale production of solar, wind, and geothermal energy, as well as the siting of transmission infrastructure on public lands to support renewable energy development….]

(Bolds mine.) This is beginning to sound like another kind of horrible land grab.

Senator Feinstein has the right idea.

Senator Feinstein Introduces Legislation to Balance Conservation, Recreation and Renewable Energy Development in the Mojave Desert

-Measure would designate new desert conservation lands; streamline and improve permitting process for large-scale wind and solar development on suitable desert lands; and enhance recreational opportunities-

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the author of the 1994 California Desert Protection Act, today introduced a comprehensive bill to designate new lands in the Mojave Desert for conservation, enhance recreational opportunities, and streamline and improve the federal permitting process to advance large-scale wind and solar development on suitable lands. The carefully crafted legislation, titled the California Desert Protection Act of 2010, is the product of discussions with key stakeholders in Southern California.

A reminder of what the future brings: pragmatism, centrism, misdirection, and corporate interest. Citizens must keep their goals clearly in mind to win what promises to be  a wingdinger of a shell game. (more…)
