To All First Time Visitors

I've noticed a significant increase in the number of first time visitors in the past 30 days.

First & foremost: Welcome!

As a brief intro; I've been blogging since 1999. I have a degree in Earth & Environmental Science, and have twice taken the Susquehanna River to the #1 spot on American Rivers annual "Most Endangered" list; first in 2005 and again in 2011. I stopped counting when I hit the 2,000 mile mark paddling on the Susquehanna.

When it comes to my favorite river and the environmental challenges it continues to face, I've forgotten more than most of the newly-ordained "experts" out there. To that end, I've scaled back my public activism over the past few years out of sheer frustration at the (mostly) clueless cacophony coming from the new crop of wannabes seeking their 15 seconds of...whatever.

Unfortunately, I'm getting restless again.

Stay tuned.

Treated Frackwater is Cleaner than Fresh Water?

I recorded a total of ~48 minutes of video of DEP Secretary Michael Krancer's keynote address and follow-up questions at the Eco-Expo @ Congregation Beth Or on 22 January 2012. For the record, I was the guy in the front row about eight feet from the podium.

The individual files take quite a bit of time to upload to Vimeo...so it'll be a few days ( or more ) before I get them all posted.

After a quick review of all footage, I decided to upload this segment of Mr. Krancer's speech first.

So - Williamsport's treated frackwater is cleaner than fresh water? Just curious...how is the radioactivity removed?
Wait'll you see the next pearl of wisdom I plan to post.
