Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Don’t shirk environment to save money
Bangor Daily News - 2/4/2011.
By Bob Duchesne – Last year, the DeCoster Egg Farm contributed to a national salmonella outbreak. It happened in Iowa and seven other states, but it didn’t happen in Maine. Maine regulations force DeCoster to follow stricter rules than some other states do, and that prevented an outbreak here. Given the chance before the outbreak, DeCoster might have joined one of Gov. Paul LePage’s red tape hearings to complain about Maine’s tough rules.
Regulatory reform or environmental rollback?
Village Soup - 2/3/2011.
Opinion Editorial by Representative Andy O'Brien (D - Lincolnville) - The governor's spokesman told the Bangor Daily News, “Our expensive, toughest-in-the nation regulations are crippling investment and job creation in Maine.” However, the range and scope of the proposals have left many questions as to whether the rollbacks would truly bring prosperity and create jobs or actually harm Mainers.
Oysters disappearing worldwide: study
Alternet - 2/3/2011.
Agence France Presse – A survey of oyster habitats around the world has found that the succulent mollusks are disappearing fast and 85% of their reefs have been lost due to disease and over-harvesting. Most of the remaining wild oysters in the world, or about 75 percent, can be found in five locations in North America, said the study published in BioScience.
Catastrophic weather events are becoming the new normal
Alternet - 2/3/2011.
By Bill McKibben – If you were in the space shuttle looking down yesterday, you would have seen a pair of truly awesome, even fearful, sights. Much of North America was obscured by a 2,000-mile storm dumping vast quantities of snow from Texas to Maine.
