Fluid movement after 9 a.m. this morning. LA12 shows it.

Attorney, Stuart Smith – Progress for the people of Louisiana

One of the major themes I’ve been writing about frequently in the last year is the rising environmental movement in Louisiana. To be clear, my home state already boasted some fierce fighters for environmental justice, like Marylee Orr and her Louisiana Environmental Action Network, or the Louisiana Bucket Brigade, doing battle with dirty chemical plants. But the shock of recent events such as the BP oil spill and the Bayou Corne sinkhole has caused a lot more people to wake up, and they’ve rallied behind movements like Gen. Russel Honore’s “Green Army.” . . .

Wed. – Save Lake Peigneur wins its lawsuit  smile2  smile2  smile2

NEW IBERIA – Judge Keith Comeaux of the 16th Judicial District Court based in New Iberia reversed the decision of the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (LDNR) to issue a Coastal Use Permit to Jefferson Island Storage & Hub for its proposal to construct and operate two natural gas storage caverns in the Jefferson Island Salt Dome under Lake Peigneur.
The court agreed with the plaintiffs that the LDNR should not have issued the permit without first finding out that the project would not unreasonably endanger public safety and that the location had foundation conditions sufficiently stable to support the use.

About Lake Peigneur

Further, the court ruled that the LDNR decision violated its Constitutional duty as public trustee of the environment under Article IX, section 1 of the Louisiana Constitution because it did not do an environmental impact analysis of the potential impacts of the project. . . .

Tuesday News

The helicorders have been crazy since Saturday. Scroll down for charts and the map of helicorder locations. No let up at all. The helicorder at Temporary, AR is also going off. The cause is a mystery. OK is still getting very large magnitude frack quakes that may affect the whole region.

2 cases of Enterovirus D68 in Baton Rouge area

Off Topic, but important -

WAFB – 2 confirmed cases of Enterovirus D68 in Baton Rouge area

BATON ROUGE, LA  – Baton Rouge health officials say two children have been treated at Our Lady of the Lake for Enterovirus D68. Officials add that there have been no deaths reported at this point in the state.

Health officials say 12 states now have respiratory illnesses caused by an uncommon virus – Enterovirus 68.

Physicians say this particular virus is more likely to severely sicken infants and teens, but most of those who are infected feel like they have a common cold.

EV-D68 presents with cold-like symptoms, such as fever, coughing, body aches and a runny nose. It may also cause breathing problems or wheezing. When parents notice high fever, dehydration or trouble breathing they should immediately take their child in to see their primary care provider or to see a provider at an urgent care clinic. (MORE)

NEW ORLEANS — A federal appeals court in New Orleans has upheld a federal safety board’s right to investigate the role of Transocean Deepwater Drilling Corp. in the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil disaster.
