ECOLOGY a cause becomes a mass movement ()
Well, the timeline was a bit off, but I think there can be little doubt that SSTs are responsible for the autism “epidemic”.
Disregarding the timeline, if you polled people in 1970, I wonder which of these they would have thought would be the biggest issue today.
ECOLOGY: a cause becomes a mass movement
Demonstrators organize to defend vanishing trees, wetlands and unpolluted air.
Unless something is done to reverse environmental deterioration, say many qualified experts, horrors lie in wait. Others disagree, but scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support each of the following predictions:
In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution.
In the early 1980s air pollution combined with a temperature inversion will kill thousands in some U.S. city.
Climate Control Is Coming (Apr, 1958)
The catalog of techniques on the third page just looks like a list of environmental disasters nowadays.
Climate Control Is Coming
If Spain could have subdued the devastating storm that swept its Armada from the English Channel in July 1588. would all the Americas be speaking Spanish today?
If Napoleon’s proud legions could have neutralized Russia’s secret ally, “General Snow” how would the map of Europe look now?
If the Nazis could have ordered gales to batter Gen. Eisenhower’s vast invasion force off Normandy on June 6, 1944, what would historians now be writing about World War II?
Armchair strategists have long de- bated the tantalizing “ifs” introduced into history by the vagaries of weather. In military operations, weather is usually a potent foe or a mighty ally.
Death Lurks in the River (Sep, 1938)
Very interesting article about pollution in the nations bodies of water. It would be another 34 years before the clean water act was passed. No doubt if you dig deep enough you’ll find that it was Prescott Bush and his faithful advisor Pappy Rove who caused this problem with their “Healthy Rivers” act.
Death Lurks in the River
by Huntington Stone
Cellulose and sawdust pollution in the North Atlantic, acid pollution in the Middle Atlantic, malaria in the Coastal plain, soil erosion in the Piedmont plateau, unpalatable water in the South Eastâ€”this is the dangerous condition of our coastal and inland waterways. This story tells what the government’s special floating laboratory is doing about it
WE HEAR much about pollution. Conservationists inform us that the defiling of our inland and coastal water is causing a serious health menace to human as well as to aquatic life at an alarming rate. The life or death of every type of American fresh water fish is involved: bass, trout, pickerel, pike, perch, crappie, catfish, carp, sturgeon, salmon, whitefish and many others. Our own health, particularly that of our children, is involved.
It’s Raining Baby Trout (Jul, 1954)
Can you guess what song is now stuck in my head?
“It’s raining trout. Hallelujah it’s raining trout!”
It’s Raining Baby Trout
By Claude M. Kreider
LAST SUMMER almost 3,000,000 baby trout “rained down” over 662 blue lakes in California’s lofty Sierras.
This was not a miracle of nature brought about by the storm clouds hovering over the high peaks. It was a manmade phenomenon, the result of a long experiment in modern trout culture and the planting of fish by airplane.
For many years Sierra lakes, barren of fish life, and other lakes heavily fished, were stocked with trout by the use of pack mules, each carrying two 10-gallon cans of baby fish. Many were lost in transport, others injured. The packers had to stop often along the rough trails to replenish the water in the cans and thus provide the necessary oxygen to keep the fish alive.
Often there was no trail, even for the sure-footed mules, and the men had to complete the journey carrying the cans upon their backs. Several days were often required for one journey. And the cost was prohibitive, averaging almost $20 per thousand trout.
