A Novel Review Regarding Sport

[Education]

Krystal Williams illustration What steps do we need to take?  Williams: One step is figuring out how we make the leap from legislatively mandated programs to something that is truly market-driven. Another is how we look at our supply chains and sourcing strategies to ensure that the products we’re creating don’t feed negatively into climate issues. A third is to understand what happens to a product at the end of its life. Garrison: If we know those three steps are important, why aren’t they happening?  Williams: I don’t actually know that they’re not starting to. My worry is that, in our need to keep business moving forward, the long-term and important generally loses out to the short-term and urgent — because this is a bit squishy, because there aren’t clear answers, and because it all depends on other factors, these kinds of actions fall to the bottom of the priority list. With solar panels and windmills, for example, I’ve worked on contracts with a 20- to 30-year useful life. And questions inevitably come up around what happens when a solar-powered system reaches the end of its useful life. Do we scrap it? Do we break it down and mine materials from it?  This is a very real issue, but because we don’t have hundreds of projects that are reaching the end of their useful lives, no one has dedicated serious time to thinking about whether the footprint of the solution is perpetuating the issues we have.  breaking news Garrison: What legal structures and discussions do you see rising in importance over the next couple of years? Williams: My knee-jerk reaction is that we’ll see more hedging.  Let me draw an analogy. In agribusiness, there’s hedging for weather because it impacts crop output. Solar is the same: The contract value is based on a projection of how many sunny days or how much wind there will be. So, what happens when those sunny days don’t materialize? Right now, risk is allocated between the developer and the consumer, who we call the "off-taker." But as more of these contracts are put in place and as more renewable energy sources get installed, I see hedging mechanisms rising in prominence. Garrison: Are there structures or discussions we’ll see less of? Williams: It’s not a legal structure, but I truly hope we get to a point as a society where we’re less demanding; where we don’t require energy 24/7. I first became aware of solar energy in the Peace Corps. I lived in a remote village, so when I got there, I bought a solar panel from another volunteer. Like everyone else, I got a book on electric wiring, set up the solar panel on my house, and hooked it up to a battery.  We’ve become so used to shaping the world to fit our needs, but that solar panel system taught me to be judicious in my use of lights — I adapted my behavior to not overtax it.  Right now, we’re just imposing our needs on the world, and that dynamic is always going to lead to exploitation. If we truly want to address climate change, we have to allow the natural resources themselves to shape our demand.

302nd Airlift Wing, U.S. Forest Service to conduct joint wildland firefighting training A C-130 cargo plane, converted into an air tanker with the addition of a Modular Airborne Firefighting System, releases a stream of water during a 2016 MAFFS training session. The 302nd Airlift Wing, based at Peterson Air Force Base, will partner with the U.S. Forest Service and other agencies in a joint wildland firefighting training exercise next week. The training will take place Tuesday through Friday, weather permitting, and will center around the use of the Modular Airborne Firefighting System, or MAFFS. The MAFFS is a portable fire retardant delivery system that can be inserted into a C-130 aircraft, effectively converting the cargo plane into an air tanker that can provide air support to firefighting efforts on the ground. A MAFFS unit can hold up to 3,000 gallons of water or retardant. The joint training session comes as ongoing drought conditions signal the possibility of another difficult wildfire season. Last year, Colorado had an unprecedented fire season that included the three largest blazes in the state’s history. The Cameron Peak, East Troublesome and Pine Gulch fires destroyed hundreds of homes and buildings and scorched more than half a million acres of land. “This training couldn’t come soon enough,” said Kim Christiansen, U.S. Forest Service deputy director of fire operations. “The training is critical to make sure that we can integrate the MAFFS into our fire suppression operations in a seamless, safe and effective manner.” The training group, which will include the 153rd Airlift Wing based in Cheyenne, Wyo., will operate primarily out of Peterson Air Force Base and the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport in Jefferson County. Four C-130s and several smaller civilian aircraft will conduct flight operations in various areas along the Front Range, practicing communications, navigation, and water drops. The smaller aircraft serve as lead planes, which guide the tankers to the drop zones. “They’re the experts in getting us where we need to go,” said Lt. Col. Brad Ross, operations group commander. “So we work with them during our training exercises to facilitate the coordination and communication that’s needed to be effective in an actual fire.” Ross, a veteran MAFFS pilot, said the tactics, weights and flying speeds of a firefighting operation are different than what C-130 pilots are used to, which is why annual certification flights are necessary. “We fly slower and lower than normal for firefighting operations,” said Ross.
