Lambertville — Climate change and global warming may be affecting our public water supply. United Water New Jersey, which serves about 812,000 customers in the northern half of the state, detected a "large" algae bloom in a West Amwell Township reservoir for the first time and now plans to step up monitoring.(Snip) In an email yesterday, Nov. 15, company director of water quality and compliance Keith Cartnick wrote that "in light of changing weather patterns and global warming considerations, we have begun discussions" with a local hydrology firm "to develop an improved reservoir monitoring plan for Lambertville, and PAC (powdered activated

Wanna blame someone Mizzz Kiriluk-Hill?
Blame DEL-Aware, the ´river advocacy´ group that won´t allow diversion to replenish/refresh.
Wanna blame someone, lady? Blame Mayor DelVecchio who had the ENTIRE town named a ´historic district´ that won´t allow the lines to be replaced.

No, lady it´s as usual all the LIBERALS fault.

Apparently a 16-year incubation period for algae. There has been no global warming for over 16 years, according to the (former) alarmists at East Anglia University in Britain.

Inversions occur when the water at the surface cools enough to sink in quantity below the warmer water below. If that has happened earlier than normal, it might have brought up nutrient rich waster from below. If that happened earlier than normal such that the sunlight caused a bloom, then the real cause is global cooling. Gasp! Break out the SUVs.

You know that water is good if stuff grows in it. Climate Change? Nope, just good old green slime purifying the water. I think Japan harvests the stuff to dry and sell. Oh, what is it called? Oh, "Aonori". The seaweed version is called just "Nori" and I´m sure you´ve had it if you have ever had sushi.

Wasn´t but about 65 years ago my job at the log cabin in West Virginia where we lived up in the holler was to take the two buckets down the hill to the Spring House to fetch the drinking water. The basin I dipped into had green growing slime in it that also fed the crawdads lurking under the rocks. I have never since had water that tasted so good as that spring water.

It is ironic the sentence opens with " in light of changing conditions" since too much light causes an algae bloom. The water is too clean allowing sunlight to go all the way to the bottom of the reservoir causing excessive algae growth. --- But a knowledgeable water treatment person knows that. Why is Cartnick spouting off about climate change?

Louisville, Ky. — Metro Police say the man arrested for a beating death at a Louisville warehouse had entered the building to break into vending machines. Raymon Murrell, 33, allegedly struck 63-year-old Phillip Schulz in the head as Schulz arrived to work at Packaging Unlimited on 12th and Kentucky early Friday morning.

Meet Mr Poo: The lumpy, brown anthropomorphised faeces that is the face of Unicef´s latest public health campaign in India. Accompanied by an insanely catchy techno-Bollywood-style anthem, Mr Poo features in a very silly and surreal new video aimed at raising awareness of the health dangers associated with public defecation in India. Though the video is light-hearted; the issue is a serious one. Globally, India has the largest number of people, more than 620 million, still defecating in the open. Only about half the population of the country use toilets. According to the Poo2Loo campaign, which is supported

The Labour MP for Morley and Outwood has admitted that he found himself in a “tight spot” and realised that he knocked the Peugeot 306 whilst making a seven point turn in his Ford Mondeo estate, but says he left the scene thinking he had not caused any damage.

Trenton — The law firm hired by Gov. Chris Christie´s office that cleared him and current staff aides of any wrongdoing in the George Washington Bridge scandal donated $10,000 to a national political group the governor currently heads, according to a published report. The Record reported late Tuesday night that Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher gave $10,000 to the Republican Governors Association — nine days before it released a report that cleared the governor in last year´s controversial lane closings at the bridge. Although critics called the report a "whitewash," Christie said the firm´s lawyers have reputations to uphold and wouldn´t

Police are investigating three recent attacks in the city they believe are part of the “knockout" game, in which an unsuspecting person is attacked for no reason with the goal of knocking the person out with one punch. The three attacks this month have occurred in the 700 block of Main Street, the area of 87 Millbury St. and on Chatham near Main Street.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
