It's just water

Nitrate contamination of drinking water is a pervasive problem in California's agricultural heartland and is bound to intensify in the coming years, according to a University of California, Davis study released Tuesday.

The study, ordered by the state Legislature, shows chemical fertilizers and livestock manure are the main source of nitrate contamination in groundwater for more than 1 million Californians in the Salinas Valley and parts of the Central Valley.

While nitrate problems have been known for decades, the study offers a comprehensive assessment of how many people are exposed and identifies solutions and costs.

"In the near future, this problem is going to persist and is likely to get worse," said Thomas Harter, UC Davis groundwater hydrologist and the study's lead author. "Even if we were to eliminate all the sources of nitrate that we have today, we would still be dealing with this issue."
...

The study covering the Salinas Valley and Fresno, Tulare, Kings and Kern counties concluded half of the 2.6 million people in those areas live in communities where raw drinking water sources have registered nitrate levels exceeding the standard. Many of those communities blend or treat their water, drill a new well or provide another alternative source, passing on the extra costs to rate payers.

Some wells in Fresno, population 500,000, have exceeded the nitrate standard. The city put a number of out of service, expanded its use of surface water and blended water from active contaminated wells with that in other wells.

The study also found about one in 10 people in the study area rely on untreated groundwater that may exceed the nitrate standards. Most are residents of small, poor agricultural communities which cannot afford to treat the water or offer alternatives.
...

If nothing is done, the study concludes, the financial burden on many agricultural communities could increase. By 2050, nearly 80 percent of the population about 2 million residents in the study area could have nitrate contamination exceeding the state standard.
...

The study estimates addressing current nitrate contamination will cost the state $20 million to $35 million per year. The study proposes a fertilizer tax which would be used by affected communities to mitigate for nitrate contamination. Another funding option is water use fees from affected residents.

The study found that nitrate leaching from agricultural land is responsible for 96% of current groundwater contamination. And while fertilizer use has leveled off in recent years, the amount of dairy manure has increased, making for a net increase over the past decade in nitrates loaded into the ground.

That means contamination of drinking water will increase in future years, Harter says, because it takes time for nitrates to migrate.
...

Follow up to FDA testing for antibiotics and other drugs in milk:

"Capitalism" per se is an economic system. But when capitalists capture the levers of government and strip the rest of the people of their representation in government, government becomes a servant of capitalists only. If capitalism is truly a force for good in the world, then why is the government, which they increasingly control, doing so much harm?

I'm very sorry that California has created a drinking water problem for themselves. I'm sure they'll solve it without me wringing my hands or losing sleep over it, though.

mostly just lurk

I gotta inject into this one. compassion vs capitalism..... This is a theme directly from ww2 Germany. More specifically the WARSAW GETTO. Warsaw was nothing but a controlled movie set to "SHOW THE DISPARAGES OF CAPITALISM" to "PROMOTE NATIONAL SOCIALISM" The films made it to the cutting room but the war was over before the Germans could release the films. The Germans made sure that there was not enouph for everyone then filmed staged scenes showing the stark differences. They also made sure that no on could give charity. if one was caught he/she was shot.

you can see some of the film in the documentary "a film unfinished"

This is propaganda right up frees ally i bet he would love to set something like this up

To receive a Ph.D in industrial chemistry in the United States, no American university requires candidates to take even a single toxicology class as part of their course work. ...
...

Nearly everything we consume or even interact with these days is made of plastic. The industry that produces plastic, largely represented by the American Chemistry Council (ACC), has an annual budget of over $120 million to protect its interests. But as the plague of plastic that wreaks havoc on our environment slowly gains the attention of policymakers, concerned citizens and the media, the makers of plastic resins and the companies that package their products have become increasingly aggressive about defending their respective bottom lines.

Taking tactics from Big Tobacco's playbook, the industry engages in bully tactics, politician buys and wide-scale misinformation campaigns meant to confuse the public and turn truth to speculation. Big Plastic is big money and survives regulatory scrutiny by creating big spin.

Because of slashed budgets to regulatory agencies, little private-sector money for watchdogging industry, and a lazy mainstream press that simply regurgitates its claims, the petrochemical industry goes largely unchecked. Here are some of the biggest whoppers.

More disease through the reckless application of chemicals

March 15, 2012

... New research shows a link between an increase in the death of bees and insecticides, specifically the chemicals used to coat corn seeds.

The study, titled "Assessment of the Environmental Exposure of Honeybees to Particulate Matter Containing Neonicotinoid Insecticides Coming from Corn Coated Seeds," was published in the American Chemical Society's Environmental Science & Technology journal, and provides insight into colony collapse disorder.

Colony collapse disorder, or the mass die-off of honeybees, has stumped researchers up to now. This new research may provide information that could lead to even more answers.

According to the new study, neonicotinoid insecticides "are among the most widely used in the world, popular because they kill insects by paralyzing nerves but have lower toxicity for other animals."

Beekeepers immediately observed an increase in die-offs right around the time of corn planting using this particular kind of insecticide.

Human history shows that in times when people are free to trade and deal with each other for goods and services, mostly free of government intervention, that they prosper, and when the government knows best, and they are indeed slaves to that government, they perish, often in large numbers.

Communism for example has killed more people than all the wars combined in history. (In just the past 100 years too.)

Stunning reality that those who occupy fail to see, or choose to ignore. (At their own peril if you are a student of history, as often the "useful idiots" are those who die first.)

No, but then a skank like you defines "human compassion" as sitting around all day like a dismal parasite sucking away on other peoples incomes.

Nope. What you call the truth is far from it.
