"One way to harness solar energy is by using solar electricity to split water molecules into oxygen & hydrogen. The hydrogen produced by the process is stored as fuel... To split water molecules into their component parts, a catalyst is necessary, but the [current] catalytic materials...are not efficient..." The new catalyst uses cobalt and titanium, much more abundant in nature than the precious metals now use -- "a major milestone toward global clean energy."

"Organic energy" is a form of solar energy that "manages low light, indoor light, diffused light, any form of light. If I'm sitting here in the office, I'm able to produce power because I don't necessarily need direct sunlight to do that... All the applications that you would normally see done for a heat gain application we can now do with ORENgE panels. Not only do you get the benefit of the heat gain, but we're also now generating the power..."

"Researchers...found that estimated exposures to most PFASs through crops exceed values of human health toxicity... [and] concluded that even if irrigation water meets the contamination standards for drinking water, the vegetables grown in the water may not be fully protected from PFOA exposure." - WHY TAKE THESE RISKS FOR THE Farmers Union Canal??

Evidence that supposedly safe levels of bacteria in wastewater actually can proliferate in nutrient-rich wasterwater distribution systems... not a good thing for 'treated' water going into important irrigation canals!

"...They evaluated what would happen if they added wastewater disposal facilities to the region. 'Our results predicted that installing additional wastewater systems in the region, regardless of type, would increase the amount of wastewater discharged to the environment and significantly degrade the watershed and the quality of water recharging the Edwards Aquifer.'"

"In a new study, a team of scientists from the UK, Portugal, and Brazil discovered that etching a shallow pattern of grating lines in a checkerboard design on solar cells can enhance the current generated by crystalline silicon (c-Si) by as much as 125 percent."
