Homeowners Offered Bottled Water After Elevated PFAS Levels Found Near La Crosse Airport

Ken Notes: We need to rapidly look for cost effective treatment options for both wells and municipal systems. Our focus on finding the problem is one sided if we do not have solutions. I am not suggesting we abandon our search, I am suggesting we invest is a solution at the same time.

Environmental review of The City of Baraboo Project for the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program

Ken Notes: Lead replacement programs need to be on every communities to do list, but it does not have to be all at once. If your water source is stable and there are not bad levels at the tap, the pipes are most likely lined with deposits that keep the lead from leaching. JUST DO NOT CHANGE SOURCE until all the lead is gone.

Wild Rose Dairy permit renewed, expansion approved

Ken Notes: Wow this may be the problem. Two spills, no fines, and expansion is OK. We need to address this now before we have no small farms, no control, and more accidents. Maybe we should allow cities to treat their waste by spreading it on farm fields...

Lawmakers, environmental groups announce "Prove it First" bill

Ken Notes: Should we tell them this bill has been seriously challenged in Wisconsin??? I get very nervous when mining companies have fines and penalty line items in their budgets. This suggest it is easier to pay the fine than it is to prevent any negative environmental impact.

DNR reminds Wisconsinites to reduce salt use this winter during Wisconsin Salt Awareness Week

Ken Notes: Salt bad -- manure OK. I am not pointing fingers here, but I am asking for the DNR to look at its policy positions. I am also asking the state legislature to look at the rules the DNR enforces to see if we can to better. For the record, we can!

OPINION: Nuclear energy conflicts with cure for climate change

Ken Notes: I have a question for all of my readers, at present there are gaps in the grid as we convert to solar and wind. How do we produce the energy we need for this. We can keep some existing production on line, we can build new gas fired plants, we can invest in very expensive storage. I believe it will be a combination of all of the above and looking for the most cost effective bridge makes some sense. Lets replace coal, use gas and safe nuclear for balance, and look for cost effective storage ASAP...

Birkie foundation cuts ties with sponsor Enbridge Energy

Ken Notes: I have been advocating for the opposite in the new power lines cutting through the Driftless. I was the companies to make investments in the are for more public events, tourism, and conservancy lands. The Enbridge lines are in and most likely will be updated so why not allow them to sponsor events that benefit the community and environment.

These are personal viewpoints shaped by your feedback. They are not the positions of my sponsors or partners.
