By Amy Anderson | October 30, 2009

It’s been a super busy week here at KEA — grant deadlines, comment deadlines, speaking engagements, and all-day meetings — but we still read teh entire internets every day. Here’s some interesting stuff: Dysfunctional agencies? Really? — CPR Blog Climate skeptics? Really? Here’s how to talk to one. — Scienceblogs (via Legal Planet) Speaking of… The […]

CdA Council Candidates Address the Issues at KEA Forum

By Amy Anderson | October 22, 2009

The candidates who showed for the KEA forum this afternoon acquitted themselves quite nicely, with mostly thoughtful answers to mostly difficult questions. Only challenger Dan Gookin failed to show, claiming in a letter to Kootenai Environmental Alliance the he had a prior engagement.  As moderator, I thought things went well, but perhaps too well.  On […]

More global warming reading.  And a potential new development for an old mine: —  MORE global warming non-believers? – People-Press.org  — Cool home efficiency competition. – NRDC Swithboard  — The real climate challenge will be adaptation. States first. — Legal Planet  — The Eternal Sunshine Mine – Down to Earth NW

Gookin to no-show at KEA Forum Thursday

By Amy Anderson | October 21, 2009

We received a letter today from Dan Gookin, a candidate for City Council in Coeur d’Alene.  According to the letter, Mr. Gookin has a “prior speaking commitment” and will not be attending the candidate forum scheduled for tomorrow (Thursday) at noon at the Iron Horse. In the letter, Mr. Gookin said he “wants to share […]

Actions for Action on Global Warming

By Amy Anderson | October 19, 2009

Maybe getting a head start on Saturday’s “International Day of Climate Action,” a group of pranksters pulled a fast one on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today, holding a fake press conference to announce the fake news that the Chamber of Commerce was changing its stance on pending global warming legislation in Congress.  The Washington […]

What We’re Reading

By Amy Anderson | October 15, 2009

We hope that this might be a semi-regular feature — a set of links to some of what we’re reading. Articles or features regarding North Idaho, stuff we’re working on, or maybe just stuff we think is interesting. But today is “Blog Action Day.” Now that we’re proud owners of a new blog, who are we to […]

You Click, We Win

By Amy Anderson | October 14, 2009

There probably ought to be a name for this new form of fundraising / philanthropy mixture. But an increasing number of corporate donors are running contests such as this one run by Tom’s of Maine. The idea is that the proposal getting the most votes on the website gets the grant. The corporation gets traffic […]

KEA 2.0

By Amy Anderson | October 14, 2009

This past summer, we got a nice note from freshly-retired Executive Director Barry Rosenberg mentioning that among other things, he was struggling mightily with a brand new retirement present from his son.  Barry, our rugged and iconoclastic leader for about 8 years, had returned to live on his beautiful “off the grid” homestead nestled in […]

Recycled Fashion Success

By Amy Anderson | October 13, 2009

The first and hopefully annual Junk2Funk show was a smashin’ fashion success! Thanks to the artists, the models, the volunteers, sponsors, supporters, promoters, photographers, and KEA staff who put it all together.   Our friends at DOMA Coffee have some more pictures up on their excellent blog.

Federal Stimulus Investment Pays Off in Silver Valley

By Amy Anderson | October 2, 2009

Even the most vocal component of our local red-state anti-everything contingent should be applauding this news regarding the federal stimulus spending in the Coeur d’Alene basin.  We got notice of this DEQ press release yesterday, announcing the end-of-season statistics that show the stimulus spending has put the yard cleanup program in the upper basin nearly […]
