Short Description: 
The recent oubreak of swine raises questions about how many people or livestock can live crowded con

The recent outbreak of H1N1 Flu (or swine flu) is raising questions about potential links between pandemics and population stability. For a few days last week a large hog farm in Veracruz was being blamed for the outbreak of swine flu in Mexico, and although that connection has been challenged the question remains: how do our practices of raising crops and livestock as well as the constraints of unrestrained population growth create conditions for potential pandemics.

This installment of Locus Focus takes on that controversial issue among environmentalists: how do we (or should we) limit population growth, especially growth due to immigration. Our guest Leon Kolankiewicz is an environmental scientist and national natural resources planner. He has a B.S. in forestry and wildlife management from Virginia Tech and an M.S. in environmental planning and natural resources management from the University of British Columbia. His professional experience includes stints with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Marine Fisheries Service, Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, Alaska Department of Fish and Game, University of Washington, University of New Mexico, and as an environmental planner with the Orange County, (Ca.) Environmental Management Agency. Mr. Kolankiewicz is the author of Where Salmon Come to Die: An Autumn on Alaska’s Raincoast.

Prop. rights opposition to pro-lng bill

Many people and groups oppose Liquefied Natural Gas in Oregon for environmental reasons.
One bill oringinally introduced by the Bradwood Landing L-N-G facility, though, is facing opposition from the Northwest Property Rights Coalition.
House bill three-oh-five-eight was designed to make it easier for companies to apply for permits to work on private lands.
As the law currently stands, if a company like Bradwood Landing wanted to build a pipeline across private lands, it would have to get the landowner’s permission before applying for a permit.
This bill would change that, so that a company could apply for a state permit without notifying affected property owners.
