Drought-Proofing Soil
Written by NUAC Staff
If you are one of the millions of Americans living in the Western US, drought is something all too familiar. In Phoenix, Arizona, a record breaking 143 consecutive days without measurable rainfall was experienced this past winter, and they were not alone. An extremely dry winter has resulted in the development of moderate to extreme drought across much of Arizona, New Mexico, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas and parts of Colorado, Kansas, and Missouri.
Technology Profile: Manure Furnace
Written by NUAC Staff
An Innovative Way to Reduce Pesticide Prevalence in Streams?

In this day and age of sustainability, any proven technology that can recycle the waste of an industry and in return, use it to run that very same industry warrants attention. The technology being referring to is a furnace that can be used to burn chicken manure-producing the byproduct of steam that will help to run a process that turns chicken leftovers into animal feed.
Silent Springs & Pesticides
Written by NUAC Staff
Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring" was groundbreaking in bringing the realities of pesticide contamination to the forefront. Indeed, her book is often credited for beginning the environmental health movement. The United States Geological Survey released a study earlier this month documenting that pesticides, linked to cancer, birth defects and neurological disorders, still contaminate almost all the nation's rivers and streams and most fish found in them. At least one pesticide was detected in all of the streams studied. Though these studies are unlikely to be as revolutionary as Rachel Carson's initial findings, USGS's conclusions warrant serious scientific attention.
Precise Scientific Measurements for Urban Landscape Water use
Written by Administrator
When politicians call for rigorous science to be used in environmental policy they’re asking for a quantification that turns natural entities into an equation that can be used to make a decision more black and white. So often conservation decisions are made based on theoretical judgments rather than proven equations for success.
