Gary Rauchenecker, GoldenIn response to coke ovensI’m responding to Ken Fry’s June 1 letter to the Post independent, “Coke ovens are filthy.” He said the historical coke ovens that were in Glenwood, Redstone and other places were poison-spewing and filthy. Coke ovens, however, were scattered in our Roaring Fork Valley, beginning in 1884 in Basalt, 1888 in Cardiff and 1899 in Redstone. Floyd Joseph Diemoz, Glenwood SpringsGlass half emptyUsing Ken Fry’s logic, the coke ovens in Glenwood, Redstone and Basalt should be bulldozed.

Beetle-kill harvesters and woodworkers are using beetle-kill lumber for siding, furniture, framing lumber, cabinetry, paneling and finish molding.

According to research, the majority of heart attacks occur in the morning and in the first few hours after waking up.This is why many people die early in the morning. This phenomenon is thought to be caused by a variety of factors, including high levels of stress hormones, the fact that morning blood is thinner, and an increase in blood pressure levels. According to medical professionals, the time of day when you are most likely to pass away when you are older is in the late morning, around 3 am. Numerous bodily processes adhere to the so-called circadian clock, which has a natural daily pattern.

Alarming levels of deforestation pose a severe threat to Africa's forest ecosystems and their potential for climate change mitigation. By adopting climate-smart forestry practices, Africa can enhance the resilience of its forests while simultaneously contributing to climate change mitigation. Africa's forests not only contribute to climate change mitigation but also play a crucial role in supporting local communities and conserving biodiversity.

In a nutshell:Until now, no independent researchers had systematically measured toxic air contaminants from any of the more than 3 million abandoned oil and gas wells across the nation, writes Gross. Most previous health studies have focused on communities in proximity to active oil and gas wells, said Casey, leaving huge gaps in knowledge of how abandoned wells impact public health. Big picture:Many homes and buildings in oil and gas-producing states like Pennsylvania, Texas and California are built over abandoned wells -- often without the knowledge of owners or builders. The scale of the problem prompted the Biden administration last year to establish a $4.7 billion program to start cleaning up abandoned wells nationwide.
