17. Land Use and Conservation Law: The Adirondack History
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) By reviewing the conservation history of the Adirondack Park, this lecture examines strategies to manage land use and natural resources in protected areas. The Adirondacks has been protected since the 1880s and became a national park in the 1970s. The government manages the park for a variety of uses, including recreational, ecological, and natural resource-related uses. The multiple uses of the park create conflict amongst stakeholders and require regulations that prevent certain types of development. The lecture reviews regulations and zoning ordinances that protect public lands. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Allocating and Managing Land Use 07:52 - Chapter 2.

Conservation South Africa (CSA) - Healthy Lands for Better Red Meat
http://www.conservation.org/southafrica South African farmers living in small corners of the northern cape are working with Conservation South Africa (CSA) to manage their lands better. CSA helps farmers with setting up grazing regimes, keeping the water sources healthy and free of aliens, providing alternative watering points for stock and linking farmers with access to new markets to sell their stock. In return farmers are reducing their stock so that the fields can recover from overgrazing and valuable wetlands can remain healthy.

8. Chemically Dependent Agriculture
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) The change from smaller, more diverse farms to larger single-crop farms in the US has led to greater reliance on pesticides for pest management. Other changes as the US food system becomes more commercialized include: increased use of additives, higher food prices, more water and energy consumption for agriculture, and more pesticide residues entering food through processing. Pesticides have also been used to combat insect-borne diseases, like malaria. The lecture provides an overview of relevant food, agriculture, and pesticide law, and covers the changes in pesticide use as scientific knowledge of a given chemical (i.e. DDT) improves. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

2. Principles & Strategies in Environmental Law
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) The United States' fragmented, piecemeal approach to environmental law is presented through the cases that led to the creation of major environmental statutes such as the Clean Water Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. The variety of federal agencies and levels of government that participate in creating and implementing regulation contribute to the fragmentation of American environmental law. Environmental law seeks to balance the costs of environmental degradation with the economic benefits that companies reap. However, the uncertainty of environmental costs leads to a slow and ineffective regulation process. 00:00 - Chapter 1. A Course About Defining and Solving Problems 04:09 - Chapter 2.

4. Nuclear Secrecy and Ecology
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) The United States government employed a variety of approaches to protect citizens from danger, including public education, nuclear weapons testing, and gathering data about the effects of nuclear testing. The US government's testing of nuclear weapons at the Bikini Atoll is used as an example of government approaches. Nuclear testing led to ecological devastation, leading the US government to move Bikinians to another island.

North Pacolet River Reach 3 Restoration Time-Lapse Photography--Altamont Environmental, Inc.
Altamont Environmental, Inc. (Altamont) has assisted the Polk County Soil & Water Conservation District (PCSWCD) with submittal of two grants that resulted in the PCSWCD receiving in excess of $2.7 million in funding from the North Carolina Clean Water Management Trust Fund (CWMTF). Donated permanent conservation easements and in-kind service provide the project a total value of approximately $3.5 million. The project is focused on stabilizing failing streambanks, enhancing riparian vegetation and habitat, and placing into conservation a minimum 50-foot-wide riparian buffer along two miles of the North Pacolet River in Polk County (referred to as Reach 3). The project is part of a Watershed Plan that will restore and place into conservation the riparian area along the entire main stem of the river within North Carolina, a distance of 18 river miles. The assessment of Reach 3 included conducting a Rosgen-style Level III Assessment, riparian and exotic/invasive plant species documentation, hydrologic assessment that included field observation of bankfull indicators, North Carolina Regional Curve Data, watershed area and land cover, sediment transport analysis, US Army Corps of Engineers USACE Hydrologic Engineering Center, River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) modeling, and benthic macroinvertebrate assessment. The assessment was used to develop a design that was acceptable to the property owners, stabilized rapidly migrating incised streambanks, was beneficial to water quality, restored and enhanced the riparian corridor, and resulted in permanent conservation of the stream buffer. The design was incorporated into a Pre-Construction Notification (PCN) that was submitted to the USACE, the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Division of Water Quality, Land Quality Section, and was copied to the US Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) and NC Wildlife Resource Commission (NCWRC). The PCN resulted in the project receiving a Nationwide USACE 404 Permit for stream restoration and the accompanying Division of Water Quality 401 Water Quality Certification in less than three weeks from submittal. Concurrence was also received from USFW and NCWRC. Hydrologic data was also provided to Federal Emergency Management Agency and the NC Floodplain Mapping Program for a No Impact Determination for the project. Construction of the project began in November 2010 and is one of the largest stream restoration grant projects ever awarded by the CWMTF.

The Sustainable Forestry Initiative At The Summit
Find out more at http://www.summitblog.org/, where we have information on the 2013 National Scout Jamboree, the Boy Scouts' 4th High Adventure Base, and everything else going on at the largest project in BSA history. In this video, we're taking a in-depth look at one of the keys to environmental stewardship and conservation at the Summit: lumber. Where does the lumber that the Summit will use come from? How is it harvested? What kinds of wood are we talking about here? We can sum up most of the process in one word: salvage. Everywhere that we're building a road, clearing a campsite, or making room for an activity area, the trees that come off that piece of land are being used at the Summit. The process is long, but fairly simple. We take the trees from the Summit to a local mill, the wood is cut and seasoned, and then it returns to the Summit to live on as part of something amazing. It's interesting to note that, of the 10,600 acres of Summit property, only about 700 acres are contributing to this process. Still, through careful planning and wise use, those amounts should fit the needs of the design of the Summit facilities. We'll continue to keep you updated on the building process out at the Summit, and on how we're looking to the conservation principles of the Boy Scouts of America to guide us through every step of the process.

Cities as Ecological Islands: Managing for Species Diversity
NOVEMBER 16, 2011 Cities as Ecological Islands: Managing for Species Diversity Ian MacGregor-Fors Assistant Professor, Institute of Ecology, Mexico Pamela Yeh Assistant Professor of Biology and Fellow of the Institute for Sustainable Solutions We know that urbanization transforms the land and surrounding systems, but we are just beginning to learn how cities themselves act as "ecological islands." Using avian ecology and biogeography of islands as a research framework, recent studies in the tropics are providing clues about how to plan and manage large urbanizing areas like Portland to minimize human disturbances and maximize the occurrence and diversity of native wildlife species.

Bushfire recovery on private land: native vegetation | Port Phillip & Westernport CMA
In this video, a local landholder along with ecologist Dr Randall Robinson from Victoria University describe how Victoria's 2009 Black Saturday bushfires affected native vegetation and how the vegetation has regenerated since the fires. They provide advice to landholders on how native vegetation should be managed after fire. Key points: - Initially focus on stabilising soil and minimising disturbances; in most cases, the best options is to leave the native vegetation to regenerate naturally - Targeting weed control can assist native vegetation to restablish itself

Mau Forest Reforestation Volunteer Programme - Community welcomes volunteers
Mau Forest is the largest indigenous montane forest in East Africa. As the largest water catchment area in Kenya, Mau Forest is one of Kenya's important 'water towers': many rivers originate from the forest, including Ewaso Ng'iro River (southern), Sondu River, Mara River and Njoro River. These rivers feed for example Lake Nakuru, Lake Natron and the Masai Mara. Forest destruction in the past 10-20 years is resulting in low water levels during the dry season with disastrous effects for both people and wildlife. Reforestation of Mau is urgently needed to curb this trend. As a volunteer in the Mau Forest Reforestation Programme you will get hands-on experience with tree nursery management and reforestation activities, but also participate in conservation education and wildlife surveys. Experience the authentic culture of the Ogiek tribe and help these communities to restore their forests, one tree at a time!

San Diego Integrated Wealth Solutions Asset Management Financial Business Mortgage Insurance Tax
http://IWSteam.com written and produced by http://JillAddison.com Eric: I work with many business owners, professionals and high level executives who have done well for themselves, yet still experience anxiety about how to protect and grow their wealth. Ted: Given the changes over the last few years I see many people who are somewhat paralyzed when it comes to financial decisions. They're not clear on their path when it comes to managing their finances, and they're afraid to take that next step. Carolyn: We help a lot of people with significant assets who say they feel like the pieces of their financial big picture are just floating out there, and they don't have a clear picture of how it all fits together. Dan: (to camera) . Integrated Wealth Solutions is devoted to helping our clients achieve financial peace of mind by taking a proactive and personalized approach to wealth creation, protection, and distribution. From tax planning, to investments, to estate planning, to insurance, mortgages and real estate, we can help you see how all the pieces of the puzzle work together. Carolyn: I like to think of Integrated Wealth Solutions as serving a purpose similar to the team that put the Apollo spacecraft on the moon. Because the environment was constantly changing, the spacecraft was off course ninety percent of its flight. It took the best and brightest scientists working as an integrated team to continuously monitor the two hundred and forty thousand mile journey. They acknowledged the deviations from the expected path and made the necessary course corrections to successful land the Apollo within 15 feet of its target. Eric: Each of our clients is on a journey too. Our goal is to uncover our client's core values to help chart their lifelong financial path. An important part of our process includes asking important questions like: What's important to you?... Is it to leave a legacy? To travel the world? To fund your children's education? To make a difference in the world? After we identify our clients' core motivations, we then serve as their team of experts experienced advisors to help them chart their path, make needed mid-course corrections, and help them arrive safely at their target. Janean: We often work together to advise clients on major decisions such as purchasing an investment property -- meeting with a client as "team" to help them look at all aspects of their life and balance sheet before making a that big decision. Ted: Through a series of questions we are often able to get a clear picture of a client's tax profile. Once we fully understand the situation, it could become apparent that the tax laws surrounding rental property ownership are not may not be in a client's favor. It may be possible that we cannot take advantage of many of the tax deductions that most people equate with owning real estate. Curt: So, often times in less than an hour, we are able to talk through all the options and, while an investment may make sense in a number of ways, it is critical to explore all aspects from a debt, equity, short-term, long-term, and tax perspective before moving forward. We sometimes find that what initially seems like a good investment may turn out to have bigger tax implications, thus not be the correct move at the time. Ted: We like to think of ourselves as a sort of personal advisory board,... as we help guide our clients through the constantly changing environment. Because the Integrated Wealth Solutions team has worked together for many years, we all understand the delicate nature of financial decisions, and thus can anticipate the unique needs of our client. Our strength lies not only in our independence but also in our understanding of all aspects of wealth creation, management, protection, and distribution. While we are most effective as an integrated team, we are happy to work seamlessly with YOUR existing financial team. Dan: (to camera) Please contact us to schedule a free consultation. We look forward to meeting with you to explore the possibility of partnering with you on your financial journey.

20. Managing Coastal Resources in an Era of Climate Change
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) The lecture reviews the legal and economic strategies that can be used to manage coastal development. Over half of the United States population lives in coastal areas and will be affected by sea level rise and more intense storms. The lecture looks at the conflict between property rights and efforts to protect coastal ecosystems through the use of eminent domain to create national seashores. Barrier islands such as Fire Island National Seashore and Cape Cod National Seashore are used as case studies; a variety of strategies have been employed to manage these constantly moving islands. The lecture also discusses the role insurance plays in coastal settlement patterns; changes in insurers' policies in high-risk coastal areas could change the way people settle in coastal regions. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Living History through the CCC - Texas Parks and Wildlife (Official)
Trent Butler is a 12-year-old on a mission. While on a Boy Scout trip, he learned about the Civilian Conservation Corps and how these men and women helped build the Texas State Park system. But being a history buff, Trent wanted to know more. A lot more. The result was a one-act one-kid play. In it, he portrays a president, a senator, and a CCC worker. His project is a true example of imagination at work, connecting past and present, inspiring all who experience it.

Save UK Woodlands from the Bankers
Save UK Woodlands from the bankers, Further Asset Stripping of the UK. David Cameron to pass laws to enable UK National Woodlands & Ancient Forests sell off to Corporations. A public survey has revealed that three quarters of people are opposed to plans to sell of some of England's forests while leading figures have also called for the decision to be reversed. Almost 90 prominent figures signed a letter claiming that such a sale would be "misjudged and short-sighted". A long list of concerned politicians, media figures, celebrities, and others includes chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, artist Tracey Emin, model Lily Cole, actress Gillian Anderson, former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone, novelist Julian Barnes, broadcaster Dame Joan Bakewell, actor Richard E Grant and designer Dame Vivienne Westwood. The Public Bodies Bill, currently making its way through the House of Lords would give the Government -- and future administrations -- the power to sell the nation's woodland, including the Forest of Dean. What does the Forestry Commission actually do? The Forestry Commission is the government department responsible, in its own words, "For the Protection and Expansion of Britain's Forests and Woodlands". The Forestry Commission in England manages 250000 hectares comprising approximately 1,500 forests, including the New Forest, Kielder Forest. Parts of Sherwood Forest & the Forest of Dean are also under its control. Both the Thatcher and Major governments tried to privatise the Forestry Commission in the 1980s and 1990s but failed following intense pressure from conservation groups and lack of interest by industry. Since then, however, land has become more valuable, not just for timber but for providing "environmental services" such as flood control, climate change measures and amenity. In England the commission is subsidised by £30m a year, but generates an additional £63m a year in income. A government economic study released earlier this year calculated that it provides £2,100 in value per hectare per year if benefits such as erosion protection, pollution absorption, carbon sequestration, health provision are included.

Can you pick some at random so we will not send too many to the ones that begin with A and B! http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/lords/ Dear Lord/Baroness/Viscount etc The Public Bodies Bill currently being debated in the House of Lords will give the Government (and future governments) unprecedented powers to sell the whole or parts of England's forests. Those of us who live in the Forest of Dean oppose the sale, as a change of ownership will violate the traditions and privileges we and visitors to the Forest enjoy; it will destroy all that we hold dear about the Forest and will damage the local tourist industry and the local economy. When in 1981 the then Government proposed to sell forest woodlands, members of all political persuasions in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords recognised the uniqueness of the Forest of Dean and exempted it from the power of sale. The House of Lords Constitution Committee: "[The Bill] strikes at the very heart of our constitutional system". Lord Judge, Lord Chief Justice: "[The Bill needs] very careful reconsideration" Lord Woolf: "[The Bill is] of grave concern to the judiciary" and "constitutionally wrong". The Lords' Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Committee: "The Bill would give ministers unacceptable discretion to rewrite the statute book" The Human Rights Joint Committee of both Houses of Parliament: "[The Bill is] wholly inappropriate". Please vote to oppose the Public Bodies Bill or at least to exempt the unique Forest of Dean. Yours etc The Above From: http://www.handsoffourforest.org/information.html?panel=emailsec#NAemailsec http://www.theforester.co.uk/saveourforest.cfm http://www.handsoffourforest.org
