Oregon’s criminalization of rainwater collection is now complete: Saving water runoff will get you thrown in jail

Jon Carey gets emotional at the prospect of being forced to tear out a 2-acre pond that is the most prized feature on his 10-acre property near Butte Falls.

“I basically bought a lemon,” the 40-year-old said, choking back tears as he stood on the shore of the partially iced-over pond on Tuesday.

“That’s how they explained it to me.”Carey said the Jackson County Watermaster’s office has told him he doesn’t have any water rights to his pond that was built 40 years ago…

This particular area of ​​the earth, the transition zone could contain as much water as all oceans combined.

In 1864, the French writer Jules Verne in his novel Journey to the Center of the Earth , had imagined an ocean in the bowels of the planet … It might be seen quite well, even if the team Graham Pearson does not speak of water in liquid form, but contained in a very special mineral.  however, remains to be determined, as Hans Keppler stresses, if the ringwoodite sample analyzed is representative of the entire transition zone mantle.

This so-called “coat” is below the earth’s crust to core of the Earth, to a depth of 2 900 km.Between the two main parts of the mantle (the upper mantle and the lower mantle), is an area called “transition” between 410 km and 660 km depth.  ‘s main mineral of the upper mantle is olivine. When the depth, and therefore the pressure increase, olivine transforms, changes state in some way. Between 410 and 520 km, becomes wadsleyite, then between 520 and 660 km ringwoodite, a mineral which contains water.

This variety of olivine has been found in meteorites, but never from the Earth itself, because an inaccessible depth.  “Until now, nobody had ever seen the mantle ringwoodite Earth, even if geologists were convinced of its existence “ , says Hans Keppler, University of Bayreuth (Germany), in an editorial also published in the journalNature .

This is a very special microscopic inclusion of ringwoodite, a mineral that has allowed his team to confirm that experimental studies tended to show: the mantle has a “water transition zone” .  mineral analysis allowed determine that it contains a significant amount of water, approximately 1.5% of its weight.  diamond came to the surface of the Earth in a volcanic rock included.

“Gee, I wish I’d thought of that!” How often do we think it? As easy as it can be to get down-hearted about the state of our industrialized world, engineers are doing many simple, elegant, much-needed things for their fellow human beings by harnessing technology in a way that demonstrates awareness and expresses compassion. Take a look at this astonishingly simple idea that is bringing pure drinking water to the desert city of Lima, Peru.
