Environment vs jobs. Why does it have to be this way? What’s the answer?


I don’t understand why we can’t figure out how to do both; clean up the environment and save jobs at the same time. What is the problem? Lack of brainpower? Or lack of energy or courage or determination?  Just questions to ask.

Central Coast growers, environmentalists spar over proposed water quality rules

WATSONVILLE — Proposed rules to clean up Central Coast waters could damage agriculture and put thousands of farmworkers out of work, according to growers.

But environmentalists say nitrate from fertilizers and pesticides is poisoning the region’s water supplies, and without more regulation, public health is at risk.

An American astronaut spending the Fourth of July in space wished the United States a happy Independence Day from orbit on Sunday.

NASA astronaut Douglas Wheelock posted his July 4th messages and photos on Twitter, where he writes as Astro_Wheels, to mark the U.S. holiday on the International Space Station (ISS).

“Happy 4th of July!” wrote Wheelock, who is a colonel in the U.S. Army. “Celebrating Independence Day morning in the Russian ‘Service Module’, the ISS Command Post.” [Wheelock’s Fourth of July space photo.]

Space Photo for July 3. Come fly with me in Lockheed Martin’s Supersonic Green Machine


Lockheed Martin’s Supersonic Green Machine

Oh baby come fly with me

Faster than sound we’ll be

Without sonic booms, you’ll see

Just have to wait ‘til 2033.

Wait? That’s 23 years! I might still be here. On the other hand I might be able to fly on my on by then. Or at least throw a few flames.

This future aircraft design concept for supersonic flight over land comes from the team led by the Lockheed Martin Corporation.

The team’s simulation shows possibility for achieving overland flight by dramatically lowering the level of sonic booms through the use of an “inverted-V” engine-under wing configuration. Other revolutionary technologies help achieve range, payload and environmental goals.

This concept is one of two designs presented in April 2010 to the NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate for its NASA Research Announcement-funded studies into advanced supersonic cruise aircraft that could enter service in the 2030-2035 timeframe.

Technicians install a main engine on the space shuttle Discovery in NASA’s Orbiter Processing Facility on Wednesday. The engine was removed to give technicians time to replace a suspect turbopump in a different rocket engine, which encountered an issue during torque testing.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA has confirmed that the space shuttle program will keep going until next year.

The space agency made its final decision on Thursday, after weeks of indications that the program would be extended — including an official request from launch managers last week.

The managers agreed to postpone what is currently the next-to-last shuttle launch until Nov. 1. Discovery had been scheduled to fly to the International Space Station with a load of supplies in September, but NASA said more time was needed to get the payload ready.

The very last mission now has a Feb. 26, 2011, launch date. Tble replacement.
