His first assignment as a new Border Patrol agent in 1992 was along the U.S.-Mexico border near San Diego, a place where thousands of illegal immigrants lined up and rushed the border en masse, their numbers overwhelming the handful of agents trying to stop them. “On day one when I showed up to work, I saw hundreds of people running up the median of Interstate 5, helicopters buzzing around, and I thought there was some kind of big incident or crisis that day,” Scott said, who now runs the San Diego sector for the U.S. Border Patrol. But he quickly found out it was just a normal day. Meanwhile, Border Patrol Agent... Read more →


FOREST FIRE PREVENTION MEASURES UNDER WAY ACROSS NEW JERSEY

TRENTON – Active forest fire prevention protects lives, property, and the health of New Jersey’s forests and natural resources. To reduce dense undergrowth and other forest debris that have the potential to fuel wildfires this spring, the Department of Environmental Protection’s Forest Fire Service is conducting prescribed burns throughout the state, Acting Commissioner Shawn LaTourette announced. During prescribed burns, trained Forest Fire Service personnel use handheld torches to set smaller fires to burn away fallen leaves and branches, pine needles and other vegetation on the forest floor. As New Jersey’s climate continues to change, forest maintenance, including prescribed burning, takes on even greater importance. New Jersey’s changing climate increases the risk for more frequent and larger wildfires due to longer, hotter periods of dry weather,... Read more →


KEYSTONE PIPELINE VS TRAIN VS SHIP TO MOVE OIL

image courtesy of unsplash.com 1 Train has 100 cars, 2 engines and weighs 27,240,000 LBS. 1 Train carries 3,000,000 gallons of oil. 1 train uses 55.5 gallons of diesel per mile. It takes 119,000 gallons of diesel to go 2150 miles from Hardidsy, AB to Freeport, TX. Keystone pipeline was to deliver 34,860,000 gallons of oil per day. It would take 12 trains and 1,428,000 gallons of diesel to deliver that amount. PER DAY! 521,220,000 gallons of diesel per year. The oil will still go to market with or without the pipeline. By stopping the pipeline, billions of gallons of diesel will be wasted and pollute needlessly. Does that make you feel good? Stop the Tar Sands all together? Then we must ship the oil...
