Why would Zions National Park go backwards in their progress for clean air? for almost a 1/4 century Zions has been running its shuttles on Clean Propane.  This year the park has received $33,000,000.00 to replace its 20 propane buses with new Coal Burning Electric buses. Why would US tax payers allow the government to spend a massive amount of money on a bus that gets its power from coal? Why would we want to produce more emissions and spend more money? Who are the people profiting from a bus that cost 10X the amount of a propane bus? https://www.deseret.com/utah/2021/3/7/22280911/salt-lake-schools-electric-buses-grants-volkswagen-settlementhttps://www.deseret.com/2021/4/1/22360413/salt-lake-public-schools-electric-buses-propane-cost-emissions-fuel

With the ground already saturated from previous storms, flooding is possible even from the few inches of rain the storm is forecast to produce.Avalanche warnings have been issued for much of the Cascades across Washington ahead of this heavy snow. A "high" avalanche danger warning (level 4 out of 5) has been issued for Sunday by the Northwest Avalanche Center. Large natural avalanches are possible even at lower elevations.Avalanches have killed 30 people across the United States this winter season, according to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. https://www.kitv.com/story/43388536/a-pineapple-express-is-headed-for-the-rainsoaked-northwesthttps://www.forbes.com/sites/kensilverstein/2021/02/21/natural-gas-came-up-short-during-texas-freeze-but-propane-delivered/?sh=2282aee77a3bThank you to our sponsor FEI Inc.FEI, Inc., an employee-owned company, provides fertilizer and chemical application and handling equipment and parts to the agriculture industry, and a full line of propane equipment, hearth products, and propane parts to the propane industry.

The Dirty Secrets Of ‘Clean’ Electric VehiclesThe State of Energy discusses the recent article by Forbes about the dirty secrets of "clean" electric vehicles. We also share news about Uhaul providing 1 million gallons of renewable propane for vehicles use in California.Renewable propane is derived from renewable sources such as beef fats, vegetable oils, grease residue and other biomass feedstocks. It boasts a lower carbon intensity than traditional propane while providing similar performance metrics. Renewable propane also has one of the lowest carbon intensity scores compared to gasoline, diesel and compressed natural gas, thus reducing harmful contributors to greenhouse gases. To learn more about renewable propane you can attend The Path to Renewable Propane conference a live, virtual event that explores the many opportunities for propane to provide sustainable energy. This online conference will bring together hundreds of individuals and companies that want to learn from the thought leadership in propane energy. https://www.act-news.com/news/wpga-hosts-nations-first-renewable-propane-conference/https://www.forbes.com/sites/tilakdoshi/2020/08/02/the-dirty-secrets-of-clean-electric-vehicles/#2a1caa39650b
