The paper traces the manner in which an obligation came to be imposed on select industries, requiring them to take account of amenity, wildlife and outdoor-recreational interests in the course of preparing and carrying out developmental schemes. Under pressure from the relevant voluntary bodies, the statutory obligations, first imposed on hydro-electric power development, were generalized to cover 'whole' industries, and then, under the Countryside Acts of 1967-68, were extended to all State utilities. The recent privatization of those industries has provided a further pretext for extending and strengthening the 'amenity' clause. The approach has provided important insights into how industry itself might become...
The 576 abstracted references on nuclear facility decommissioning, uranium mill tailings management, and site remedial actions constitute the tenth in a series of reports prepared annually for the U.S. Department of Energy's Remedial Action Programs. Citations to foreign and domestic literature of all types—technical reports, progress reports, journal articles, symposia proceedings, theses, books, patents, legislation, and research project descriptions—have been included. The bibliography contains scientific, technical, economic, regulatory, and legal information pertinent to the U.S. Department of Energy's Remedial Action Programs. Major sections are (1) Surplus Facilities Management Program, (2) Nuclear Facilities...

This data represents a draft “Integrated” alternative from the DRECP Description and Comparative Evaluation of Draft DRECP Alternatives dated December 17, 2012. Each integrated alternative is comprised of three primary elements: Renewable Energy Development areas, Conservation Area Reserve System areas, and Other Lands.The Renewable Energy Development areas include Development Focus Areas (DFAs) in all alternatives and in Alternatives 1, 6, and 7 also include Solar PEIS Variance lands.The Conservation Area Reserve System includes three components: the BLM Land Use Plan Amendment (LUPA) areas, Conservation Planning Areas, and Existing Conservation. The BLM LUPA areas are comprised of Desert Conservation Lands...

Goodstein identified and discussed a "Saturday effect" in data on the timing of tanker oil spills. This comment describes two ways in which the validity of the statistical analysis used to identify and confirm this effect can be strengthened.

The condition of landscapes and the ecological communities within them is strongly related to levels of human activity. Human-dominated land uses and especially the intensity of the uses can affect adjacent ecological communities through direct, secondary, and cumulative impacts. Using land use data and a development-intensity measure derived from energy use per unit area, an index of Landscape Development Intensity (LDI) can be calculated for watersheds of varying sizes to estimate the potential impacts from human-dominated activities that are experienced by ecological systems within those watersheds. The intended use of the LDI is as an index of the human disturbance gradient (the level of human induced impacts...

Thuis empirical note provides a disaggregated analysis of the causal relationship between fossil fuel consumption and real gross domestic product (GDP) in the US using annual data from 1949 to 2006. The Toda-Yamamoto long-run causality tests reveal the absence of Granger-causality between coal consumption and real GDP; positive undirectional causality from real GDP to natural gas consumption; and positive undirectional causality from petroleum consumption to real GDP.

No Action Alternative.The no action alternative assumes that the 20,323 MW renewables energy target will be met by 2040. The estimated technology mix and consequent ground disturbance has not yet been determined.No DFAs or LUPAs are part of the no action alternative. Instead, the no action alternative assumes that development will occur within the 10.3 million acres of the Plan Area that satisfy the minimum resource requirements needed for renewable energy facilities; this includes BLM solar PEIS variance lands. Conservation is assumed to occur in Legally and Legislatively Protected Area (LLPAs) and MEMLs and development is assumed to be excluded from these areas. Further, no solar development would occur within...
Residential energy consumption accounts for 22% of the total energy consumption in the US. However, the impacts of local planning policies, such as increasing density and changing the housing type mix, on residential energy consumption are not well understood. Using Residential Energy Consumption Survey Data from the Energy Information Administration, quantile regression analysis was used to tease out the effects of various factors on entire distribution on the energy consumption spectrum instead of focusing on the conditional average. Results show that while housing size matters for space conditioning, housing type has a more nuanced impact. Self-reported neighborhood density does not seem to have any impact on...
