6. Water Quality Concerns in Kingston
7. Bellevue House Update
Received from the Whig Standard, July 19 – Elliot Ferguson
A new site management plan for Kingston’s Bellevue House has been tabled in Parliament.
The plan involves three strategic changes for the Centre Street home once occupied by former Canadian prime minister John A. Macdonald.
The first would see the adoption of an “evolving understanding” of Macdonald’s legacy, a “commitment to leading an open and ongoing dialogue and presenting a range of perspectives surrounding the development of Canada and Macdonald’s role in it.”
The second suggests the site become an “active community partner” with the goal of establishing new partnerships and stronger collaborations.
Lastly, a “renewed heritage experience” would see experiences “modernized” and made more inclusive, while new programming is developed that would include “immersive activities.”
Built in the 1840s, Bellevue House is a national historic site and, under the Parks Canada Act, is required to have its management plan reviewed every 10 years.
In developing the new management plan, Parks Canada consulted with the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte and the Mohawks of Akwesasne as well as Kingston’s Indigenous community. A community advisory committee, representing the region’s diversity, was also formed.
“Sir John A. Macdonald is an integral part of Canada’s history and Bellevue House is a historic symbol of that story, however we need a more complete picture of the man’s legacy; a picture that includes everyone,” the Bellevue House Community Advisory Committee stated in a Parks Canada news release distributed Wednesday.
“We will continue to support this management plan as Bellevue House National Historic Site strives to demonstrate a commitment to ensuring that all people from this diverse Canadian society may feel and know that their part in that history is accurately remembered and shared.”
Additional stakeholders and partners also had input in the plan’s development, the release stated.
“Through this management plan, Parks Canada will protect an important example of cultural heritage in Canada, engage and collaborate with Indigenous Peoples, and provide an opportunity for Canadians to experience and discover history in new and innovative ways,” the release read.

13. What is the Economic Cost of Wildfire Smoke?
Received from CBC What on Earth, July 13 – Benjamin Shingler

When tallying the economic toll of climate change, flooding tops the list in Canada. But the wildfire smoke that has blanketed many parts of North America this summer also comes with a financial cost.

Wildfires release fine particulate matter known as PM2.5, which is made up of tiny particles 2.5 microns in diameter or less (that’s roughly 30 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair). Those particles can enter the lungs and bloodstream and are particularly harmful for those with pre-existing conditions.

At the height of the haze in June, baseball games and Broadway shows were cancelled, schools closed and flights postponed. A growing body of research is trying to put a dollar figure on the larger economic fallout.
A forthcoming paper in the Review of Economics and Statistics estimates that between 2007 and 2019, U.S. earnings were reduced by an average of $125 billion a year because of wildfires. 

“Air quality matters for more than just health outcomes,” David Molitor, the study’s co-author and an associate professor of finance and economics at the University of Illinois, said in an interview. “It shows up in the statistics for economic productivity.
The researchers found smoke exposure can decrease income across a range of sectors, from manufacturing to farming to real estate, and that older workers and people of colour were disproportionately affected.

The paper drew on satellite imagery of wildfire smoke, air quality records and labour market data in the U.S.
“One of the things that really surprised me about wildfire smoke is that in the United States, the geography of wildfire smoke is very different from the geography of fires,” said Molitor. “It turns out that the Midwest U.S. experiences, on average, some of the highest number of days of smoke per year. We don’t have a lot of fires there, but just a lot of smoke.”

Another study, published last month in the journal Science of the Total Environment, concluded smoke particulates from wildfires could ultimately lead to between 4,000 and 9,000 premature deaths in the U.S. and cost a staggering $36 billion to $82 billion a year in health care. 
Shuai Pan, the lead author, had previously looked at the effects of pollution from the transportation sector, but became interested in the consequences of wildfire smoke while doing his doctoral work in the U.S. 

Epidemiological research suggests exposure to wildfire smoke is associated with increased mortality and certain common respiratory diseases, Pan said. 
“It’s not news that wildfire causes air pollution that has an impact on human health, but we really wanted to provide some numbers,” said Pan, a postdoctoral researcher at Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology in China.

For the study, Pan and his fellow researchers used satellite wildfire emission and air quality data gathered from 2012 to 2014 to create a model estimating how smoke from wildfires could impact human health and economies.
For instance, Los Angeles — downwind from many of the fires in the western U.S. — may see 119 premature deaths annually, and $1.07 billion in financial burden, the study said. Those numbers would be far higher if the research had drawn on this summer’s smoky air, Pan said. 

In the midst of Canada’s record wildfire season this year, Dave Sawyer, an environmental economist at the Climate Institute of Canada, tried to calculate the health cost of smoke in this country. 
He figured that during a particularly smoky stretch from June 4 to 8, the estimated price tag of smoke-related health care alone was $1.28 billion.
Sawyer said the economic toll of wildfire smoke is yet another reason to act on climate change.  

In the meantime, Molitor said more research is needed on the most effective ways to reduce harmful exposure.
“I think that’s where behavioural adjustments and adaptations have the potential to play a big role,” he said.

“Putting air filtration in your home … or in offices or in public schools may go a long way to helping to reduce the effects.”

14. Your Hair is Surprisingly Recyclable

Received from the National Geographic, June 28, 2023 – Sandy Ong, 
Nanako Hama gets a lot of mail. Mostly from strangers who live in her home city of Tokyo, but many packages also arrive from further afield in Japan. In lightly padded envelopes, they send locks of their hair—long, short, dyed, relaxed, permed—hoping to recycle it.
People generate a staggering amount of hair waste—salons in the U.S. and Canada toss out some 31.5 tons a day, and that figure is sevenfold higher in Europe. Nearly all of that waste ends up in landfills and incinerators, where it can release harmful greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.
But hair, proponents say, possesses so many useful properties that it’s a shame to simply toss it out. Which is why people all around the world, like Hama, have been collecting hair and finding innovative ways to recycle it, from weaving it into mats for mopping up oil spills to liquidizing it for use as a fertilizer.
“When you have hair on your head, it’s really important. But when it falls or you cut it, it suddenly becomes garbage,” says Hama. “Hair can be transformed into something really valuable.”
A magnet for oil
Hama is part of the San Francisco-headquartered nonprofit Matter of Trust (MoT). Members work at more than 60 hubs dotted across 17 countries, using machines to felt hair donated from local salons and individuals into inch-thick square mats roughly 33 inches across. The mats are then used to clean up oil slicks.
Hair is particularly well-suited for this, says MoT cofounder Lisa Gautier. “That’s because its rough sort of scaly outer layer lets oil cling to it.”
More specifically, hair is made of 95 percent keratin, and it’s this fibrous protein that mediates hydrophobic interactions—in other words, “oily stuff sticking together,” says Glenn Johnson, a materials scientist with the U.S. Air Force, who works with MoT to help develop and test the mats.
“Plus, hair has a large surface area,” says Megan Murray, an environmental scientist at the University of Technology Sydney, in Australia. In a 2018 study, Murray found that buffers made of recycled human hair could adsorb 0.84 grams of crude oil onto its surface for every gram of hair—significantly more than polypropylene, a type of plastic that’s typically used to clean up oil slicks.
MoT’s mats have been used in major oil spills, including the 2010 Deepwater Horizon and 2007 Cosco Busan incidents. Later this year, Hama’s team will deploy their mats in Niigata City, some four hours north of Tokyo, where more than 300 leaky wells remain in an abandoned oil field that once boasted the country’s largest oil production.
The Air Force, on the other hand, uses hair mats to clean up water that gets contaminated with liquid fuels and foam following firefighting training.
“In addition to oily surfactants, foam also sticks to hair,” says Johnson. Testing is ongoing, but he says the mats “show promise” of being deployed at an operational scale cleaning up the more than two million liters of dirty water produced by this training every year.
Recycled hair also has more common everyday applications—in buffers placed around drains to prevent motor oil from polluting stormwater runoff—and by extension, water bodies— as well as biodegradable grease traps to soak up cooking oil. Hama’s mats, for instance, will be used to filter wastewater next month at Japan’s biggest outdoor music event, the Fuji Rock Festival.
A helping hand for plants
Recycled hair is also useful as fertilizer and mulch material.
“Hair contains a lot of protein, which has a relatively high nitrogen content,” explains Stuart Weiss, a conservation ecologist at Creekside Science, an independent laboratory in California.
Nitrogen is crucial for plant growth, and each strand of hair is made of roughly 16 percent of this essential nutrient. By contrast, a pile of cow manure typically has between 0.6 to three percent nitrogen.
Hair also releases nutrients more slowly than the equivalent amount of commercial fertilizer, which is important for preventing excess nitrogen from leaching into waterways, says Weiss.
A series of experiments conducted in the early 2000s demonstrated that uncomposted hair was useful for growing herbs such as basil, sage, and peppermint; horticultural crops like lettuce; as well as marigold, foxglove, and other ornamental plants.
More recently, entrepreneur David Denis has found success with his startup, CutOff Recycle, which sold more than 560 gallons of liquid fertilizer made from human hair to farmers northern Tanzania last year.
The feedback from the farmers, who mainly grow tomatoes and leafy vegetables like spinach and amaranth, has been very encouraging, says Denis, who cofounded the firm in 2020.
“The weight of their tomatoes has increased by 25 percent, and the increased yield is very visible from the larger leaves of the leafy vegetables,” he says.
Agriculture experiments halfway across the world—in Chile’s Atacama Desert, the driest place on the planet—have yielded similarly promising results. Last year, MoT worked with local farmers to see if hair could help reduce water lost as it evaporates from olive, avocado, and lemon trees.
“If you use our hair mats on top of the soil, you use 48 percent less water,” says MoT’s Chile head Mattia Carenini of the study findings.
The hair mulch also helped increase nitrogen, improve soil health, and boosted fruit yield by 32 percent.
Sowing seeds of hope
Recycled hair is also playing a role in restoring degraded land and seascapes. The Scottish-based charity Seawilding, for instance, is currently trialing hair as a medium for sowing seagrass. The U.K. is estimated to have lost 44 percent of its seagrass meadows—a vital marine habitat and massive carbon sink—since 1936.
On land, recycled hair is being applied in the grasslands of the Presidio, a national park overlooking San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. In the past year, Weiss has helped MoT seed purple needlegrass (Stipa pulchra) and meadow barley (Hordeum brachyantherum) under felted hair balls on compacted soil that was once a parking lot.
Although currently only midway through the experiment, the results “are just spectacular,” he says. “You look at it and can totally tell which box had the hair treatment.” On average, native grass cover in plots with hair was 75 percent full versus under 10 percent in the control plots containing straw.
“It’s just a great way to use hair in a productive way,” says Weiss. But he cautions that further testing is needed to figure out how to scale experiments.
Gautier, however, firmly believes that our crowning glories don’t have to lose their luster once they’re lopped off our heads.
“Hair is an answer literally hanging in front of our eyes—for oil, soil, and seas,” she says.
