Celebrating 35 years of inspiration, the 2013 Mountainfilm festival in Telluride, Colorado, will run another exciting program of movies and speakers over Memorial Day weekend. Top prize winners at the 2013 5Point Film Festival set the tone for an exciting spring season of adventure. Pick up the September 2013 edition of National Geographic to read writer Freddie Wilkinson’s feature story about this expedition.
When we think of the Colorado River, we think of its power and its beauty, running from the rugged peaks of the Rocky Mountains and twisting, turning, and splashing through seven western states and two countries.

HOLYOKE - Massachusetts Institute of Technology physics professor Max Tegmark fills the frame of a video monitor as a 50mm prime lens throws the decay of a city’s industrial past into soft focus.
Behind Tegmark, October light seeps through dusty, arched windows to illuminate the whitewashed brick walls and precarious floorboards in a cathedral from the Paper City’s golden age of industry. Quantum is an industrial commercial developer with a focus on distressed mill projects, said manager Glenn E.
Deed transactionsRecords filed with the Hampden Registry of Deeds shows Quantum Properties completed real estate transactions in Holyoke totaling $620,000 this year. But redeveloping such a large swath of derelict post-industrial property isn’t an overnight project. About four months ago, Duff began compiling photographs of the property and developing marketing materials to target the film industry.
One of those contacts was Diane Pearlman, executive director of the Berkshire Film and Media Commission. When she received an e-mail inquiry from Abigail Williams, an assistant producer at Twister Films, Pearlman responded with a list of four suggested locations. Twister’s final site selection involved a reconnaissance trip about a week-and-a-half before the shoot. Twister chose Quantum’s site, according to Williams, because of its size, which gave the crew numerous options for filming, as well as the availability of equipment such as power generators. Holyoke’s general receptiveness to the project helped lure Twister to the city as well, Clark said. A study released by the University of Massachusetts at Boston earlier this year examined federal data and found that, between 2005 and 2008, Massachusetts saw a 117 percent increase in employment in the motion picture and video production industries and a 126 percent increase in employment in post-production industries.
That spirit of redevelopment strikes a chord even with people like Abigail Williams, who only experience Holyoke through a few fleeting visits.
The GOP is currently holding up Congressional action needed to avoid a government shutdown by demanding inclusion of the lifting of the crude oil export ban in the government spending package. Here are some of the disingenuous arguments the oil industry has paid to have members of Congress make over the past two years.
In 2014, when oil and gasoline prices were considerably higher, the main argument made by members of Congress and industry-funded think tanks for lifting the crude oil export ban was that it would lower gas prices.
Somewhere a copywriter with a conscience was smiling when they realized they got that headline past the ConocoPhillips marketing staff. To realize how shameless this argument is, it is just necessary to listen to the last two CEOs of ExxonMobil.
The argument is essentially that America could send oil to our allies who are currently forced to buy oil from Iran and Russia.
The second problem is that with sanctions about to be lifted on Iran, our allies like Japan and South Korea are lining up to get more Iranian oil. In addition to the failure of the national security argument on the merits, former Naval commander Kirk S. As I have warned in my recent testimony at a congressional hearing on lifting the ban on U.S.
Along with saying oil exports will threaten national security, Lippold told Congress that he expects much of the oil will go to China. How selling America’s oil to China provides America with energy security has yet to be explained.
How would fracking an additional 3 million barrels per day (or more) of oil impact the climate? In a recent New York Times piece on the inevitability of the lifting of the ban, they allowed Sen.

The Times did not include an explanation on how there was a strong case for allowing exports on an environmental basis. While still learning about the extent of ExxonMobil’s lies about fossil fuels and climate change, it appears Congress will happily buy into the current disinformation campaigns to grant Big Oil its top wish.
Will December 2015 be remembered by energy historians for the historic outcome of the COP21 talks in Paris, or will it be better known as the time in history when US politicians once again caved to the oil industry and unleashed decades of fracking on the country and the climate?Blog Image credit: Oil pumpjack on American flag, via Shutterstock.
The Environmental Protection Agency's draft national assessment on fracking's potential to pollute drinking water is still under review. Back in 2010, when Congress first tasked EPA with investigating the risks that hydraulic fracturing poses to American drinking water supplies, relatively little was known about the scale and significance of the onshore drilling rush's environmental impacts.
Over the past half decade, the pace of scientific research into fracking has accelerated dramatically. That scientific evidence has overwhelmingly found that shale and tight gas extraction has the potential to harm – and has harmed – air, water and people's health, that group wrote in an analysis released this year. For politicians seeking to keep federal regulations for the industry at bay and for those backing an “all of the above” energy strategy, the growing evidence of a broad range of hazards related to fracking is bad news.
But the final word on all of this research, as far as many federal policy-makers are concerned, will likely be the EPA's take on fracking's risks. When the draft assessment was released, the door should have been closed on a favorite industry talking point – the (oft-debunked) claim that there has never been a documented case where fracking contaminated underground drinking water supplies. But a single phrase from the study's executive summary – saying that the EPA “did not find evidence that these mechanisms have led to widespread, systemic impacts on drinking water resources in the United States” – managed to leave a door open. And policy makers, state regualors and industry supporters immediately beganto cite that draft summary. A look back at history suggests reasons to be wary of the differences between EPA's highlighted summaries – often heavily edited at high levels within the agency – and the details buried in the fine print of their reports, authored by agency scientists. Concern that history may be repeating itself may help explain why the summary's focus on evidence of “widespread, systemic impacts” from fracking, seems to have struck a nerve, sparking an outpouring of indignation from close observers, and unusually frank questioning by the EPA's own scientific reviewers. Over 280 comments were submitted to the board and three dozen people requested an opportunity to make 3 minutes comments during the EPA's public teleconference. Lena Moffit, a representative for the Sierra Club opened the public comments by expressing her shock at the EPA’s oft-quoted conclusion that the assessment failed to find evidence of widespread, systemic impacts on drinking water resources. Wilson describing her first-hand knowledge of cases where gag orders prohibit impacted families from speaking out.
Andrew Chichura, a resident of Susquehanna County, PA, expressed his support for the oil and gas industry before sharing his family’s own experience with contaminated water. Scott Seagle an attorney with Bracewell Giuliani who represents natural gas producers, was the only caller that agreed with the EPA’s statement that there is no widespread evidence of drinking water contamination.
Property owners whose wells are contaminated made clear their conclusions that fracking was to blame were based on the findings of scientific research, not guesswork. The EPA's own scientific review board has also begun challenging the notion that their research shows fracking poses only marginal threats. The EPA's draft assessment contains case after case where fracking caused contamination – and even evidence, buried in the study's fine print, that the industry has at times deliberately injected fracking chemicals into drinking water supplies.
For some who have closely followed the issue for years, the question is no longer whether there is enough evidence that fracking is causing problems, but simply a question of political will to hold a powerful industry accountable.
Ray Kemble, a former industry worker in Dimock, PA, holds up water taken from his contaminated well. Dimock has for years been one the nation's highest-profile cases where shale gas drilling and fracking was suspected to have contaminated water, a claim the oil and gas industry strenuously denied. Amazon Watch and Rainforest Action Network just announced a major victory for the Amazon rainforest. AmazonWatch and Rainforest Action Network have released the following statement in response to the verdict:“As of today, Chevron’s guilt for extensive oil contamination in the Amazon rainforest is official.
I think Chevron deserved the punishment they recieved for dumping their oil in the rainforests of Ecuador. Nine days into a solo first ascent of the North Face of the Eiger in Switzerland in 1991, Lowe was huddled in a grotto far from the summit, soaking wet, shivering, and hungry. We were swept away by his gorgeous images of Maui and Oahu, a wonderful antidote to the wintertime blues. The impressive lineup includes leading adventure athletes, environmental activists, and documentary filmmakers. Beginning with the Moving Mountains Symposium on Friday, the festival revolves around the theme of climate solutions.
The long journey of solo explorer Kyle Dempster in the movie The Road From Karakol took the Best of the Fest award. Missouri-based artist-climber-filmmaker Jeremy Collins is expressive, artistic, and intuitive—and his new film The Equation is all of those things.

We later learn these special gloves are essential gear for a unique extreme sport called longboarding.

In the meantime, running parallel to its larger aims, Quantum has worked to become a booster of Holyoke’s creative economy. Much like the oil and coal industries argue that their motivation is simply to lift the people of the world out of poverty, the argument was that the effort to lift the ban was motivated by the industry’s unselfish and altruistic goals to help the average American. According to Steve Coll's book Private Empire, when Raymond was asked if ExxonMobil would build more refineries in the U.S. The first is the export destination for the oil will be up to the oil companies, not the government.
So while Congress has heard testimony from the likes of Harold Hamm, CEO of oil fracking giant Continental Resources, about how our allies are “forced” to buy oil from Iran, the reality is the opposite. If it is to reflect science over policy, some dramatic changes to the wording of the study's conclusions are needed, EPA's review panel was told during a public comment teleconference on Thursday. In Pennsylvania alone, state regulators have documented hundreds of cases of water contamination, making it more challenging for supporters to argue that the industry is well-policed and operating safely.
The EPA's draft assessment reported multiple documented instances where that precise problem occurred. Florida Senator Garrett Richter said “Fracking can be accomplished without any material harm to our water supply,” recently while defending a bill he proposed that would overturn exisisting fracking bans in Florida. Again and again, EPA studies on the oil and gas industry's environmental impacts have been used to justify a hands-off approach to the drilling industry.
3, the EPA's Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), charged with overseeing the agency's fracking report, was inundated with comments challenging that finding. Despite the report’s shortcomings, she said the report does not supports that conclusion, a complaint echoed by most of the speakers who called in.
Even though the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection confirmed that the Chichuras had methane in their water in 2011 and made the determination that Cabot Oil and Gas, a drilling company, was responsible for the family’s water well’s contamination, the family has still not resolved its dispute with the company in a satisfactory manner. He repeated the claim that no cases of contamination had been proven and urged the board not to be swayed by “anecdotal” information. They asked the SAB to compel the EPA to include findings from preliminary tests the agency conducted that determined water contamination in Parker County, TX, Dimock, PA and Pavillion, WY was likely caused by the fracking industry. Although Ecuador agreed to Chevron’s terms and conditions of dumping oil in their land, Chevron still had the audacity to even ask permission of spilling oil in the Ecuadorian’s land when they knew it would cause cancer and harm the people of the land. The big-mountain feats he pulls off are nothing short of incredible as he mixes skills from different sports. Clark is filming a one-hour special for the National Geographic Channel, and chose the site of the former Albion mill to film several segments.
Here, they’ll shoot segments for a one-hour special for the National Geographic Channel. Quantum Properties, a limited liability corporation, acquired the land in a series of four transactions earlier this year totaling $620,000. Which is what the oil industry is poised to do regarding the lifting of the crude oil export ban. I have experienced firsthand — particularly in my command of the USS Cole when it was attacked by al-Qaida terrorists — the devastating effects of reliance on imported oil when our forward-deployed assets are placed in harm's way. And the Ecuadorians only agreed to Chevron for the oil spilling because Chevron promised them 2 checks in return to help clean up the oil once they were done with their experiment. No air date has been set, and the episode’s exact topic is under wraps during production.
And as noted on DeSmog, two of the four reports the Government Accountability Office reviewed regarding the impacts of lifting the ban didn’t even address potential environmental concerns. Chichura's time expired before he could finish describing his family's plight, but the anguish the situation has caused him was evident.
