Compass Carbon Introduces New Software Platform for Carbon Sequestration Projects

VERO BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Compass Carbon, LLC today introduced its new Syntaq technology platform, a fully automated, data management, monitoring and analysis technology designed specifically for the needs of large-scale and complex carbon sequestration projects.

Syntaq replaces the manual data processing methods currently used in the industry with a secure, scalable and quickly deployable solution. Syntaq manages unparalleled levels of data required for large-scale carbon sequestration projects and provides the highest level of analytics in support of our credit issuances.

o Syntaq is capable of managing the vast amounts of data required for the development of large-scale Improved Forest Management (IFM) projects. For example, a single IFM project will require the management and analysis of terabytes of remote sensing data. Manual data processing methods currently utilized in the industry would require large numbers of separate databases or spreadsheets to be analyzed, making the development of large-scale projects cumbersome, slow and often impracticable.

o Syntaq allows Compass Carbon to bring large-scale projects to market much quicker; where others in the industry would require several years to reach the first credit issuance, Compass Carbon estimates 18 months. This allows for lower project risk as capital can be returned much quicker.

o Syntaq allows Compass Carbon to issue credits with enhanced quality profiles supported by unparalleled amounts of data. Rather than relying on a generalized forestry model, Syntaq-generated credits can be linked to specific groupings of trees in the project area. This level of transparency in tracking the provenance of project credits is unmatched in the industry.

o Syntaq also facilitates ongoing project monitoring, reporting and verification efforts by allowing verifiers direct access to unsurpassed amounts of well-organized project information that streamlines the verification process. This enhanced data management promotes lower project verification costs and faster turnaround time for verification efforts.

“Lack of cutting-edge technology prevents the carbon industry from developing projects that generate high-volume, high-quality carbon credits that the market demands. Manual data processing methods are simply too slow for timely large-scale project execution and are prone to computational errors, which can lead to an increased risk of credit invalidation and negatively impacts market acceptance of credits. Our proprietary, industry-leading Syntaq software platform gives us the ability to manage complex, large-scale developments and produce “AAA-rated” carbon credits with enhanced quality and security profiles.," said Shayne Reeb Compass Carbon's Director of Technology.

Compass Carbon, LLC is a carbon sequestration project developer and technology company focused primarily on large-scale, Improved Forest Management projects. Compass partners with clients to develop turn-key carbon sequestration programs that have environmental, social and financial benefits.

Sod in a Yard

We have launched a new sod farm called Osgood Sod and are excited to share our varieties, hours of operation and some tips about sod.

IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Our sod farm and office hours are typically 8 am – 6 pm Monday through Friday and Saturday from 8 am to 12 pm. We are closed on Sunday. Hours may vary based on the season. Please call 208-821-8839 with any questions.

We offer two varieties of products in Eastern Idaho including but not limited to sod in Idaho Falls, and sod in Pocatello Idaho, and Utah. Our sod is grown from volcanic, nutrient-rich soil in Eastern Idaho's ideal farming culture. We are continually committed to our customers and advancing sod and turf grass products with new sod products and services.

Our sod varieties include Kentucky bluegrass and Kentucky bluegrass hybrids. The sod varieties offer multiple benefits including excellent wear tolerance, diseases resistance, and color. The advantage turf sod can be mowed as little as once per month as opposed to once or even twice per week like other sod products. Both these products have been tested thoroughly and do very well in Eastern Idaho and Utah including Idaho Falls and Pocatello Idaho. If you are looking for Idaho Sod our farm is a great choice.

This summer we have certainly seen hot and dry conditions. Since all grass needs water to ensure it stays healthy and vibrant the new sod will require more water than usually especially when establishing a new lawn.

A couple of tips for a new lawn and new sod installation.
On warm days start watering as soon as you start installing the sod. We recommend soil being wet up to 4 inches below the surface. While the lawn is establishing give it plenty of water so it can water deeply. Avoid frequent light watering which will cause shallow roots. Water in the evening or morning to avoid evaporation that is caused by sunlight. If you have gotten rain recently you may not need to water as much or often Observe the lawn before applying water if it appears to be healthy you can reduce your watering if it appears to be drying out check to make sure your sprinklers are operating correctly and apply more water to the lawn.

Osgood Sod Mission Statement

Osgood Sod offers the best grass and sod solutions for your application. Our sod is grown in volcanic, nutrient-rich soil in Eastern Idaho offering exceptional Idaho sod and quality products. Our type of sod includes Dura-Blue, a 100% Kentucky Blue Grass and Advantage turf for reduced mowing. We are excited to provide sod that offers great curb appeal for your yard and landscaping.

Premium Brands of Sod

Kentucky Bluegrass is the most widely used variety for grass in America including Idaho and Utah. This grass is a popular variety because it tolerates wearing well, heals from damage, and has great color and texture. The lawn is a great choice for home lawns.

Even in light of rock-solid evidence that debunks the myths supporting the removal of Klamath River dams, some media outlets are sitting-on the facts. WHY?

Geologic and engineering evidence prove there was no Salmon migration on the Klamath River past Ward Canyon for thousands of years, the present-day site of Copco 1 dam”

— William E. Simpson II – Naturalist

YREKA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Key Premise and reason promoted by advocates for removing the Klamath River dams, as proposed by the shell corporation, Klamath River Renewal Corporation's ('KRRC') is FAKE :

1) Geologic and engineering evidence prove there was no Salmon migration past Ward Canyon for thousands of years (site of Copco 1 dam).

Salmon couldn't have migrated past the series of high natural lava dams that blocked fish migration at Ward Canyon for many millennia. Ward Canyon is the present-day site of Copco 1 dam.

Under ideal conditions, salmon can jump a maximum of 12-feet. So even the smallest of the series of natural lava dams, standing at 31-feet-tall, would easily stop Salmon migration.

The highest of the series of natural lava dams that blocked fish migration at Ward Canyon stood for thousands of years.

That lava dam was 130-feet tall, which was as high as the current man-made Copco 1 dam, and that ancient 130-foot-tall lava dam formed a lake ('Clammittee Lake') equivalent in size to the modern-day Copco Lake, which sits in the same foot-print of the ancient Clammittee Lake.

In 1911, when the famous engineer and dam builder J.C. Boyle arrived at Ward Canyon on the Klamath River to begin construction of the Copco 1 dam, he saw and recorded the *existing* 31-foot tall natural lava dam that was holding-back the Klamath River into a large natural lake called 'Clammittee Lake'.

This natural 31-foot tall lava dam and Clammittee Lake had existed for thousands of years and into modern times (1911). As a result of that longstanding lake, a myriad of lifeforms established habitats in and around Clammittee Lake.

If these critical habitats are suddenly removed by removing the dams and draining the lakes, that longstanding intricate web-of-life will collapse, resulting in the loss of untold numbers of rare, threatened and endangered species.

As Geology and recorded documents from 1911 show, Nature, not man, ordained that fish would not migrate past this point on the Klamath River.

Given the foregoing facts, it becomes very clear that even the notion of installing fish-ladders in this area is ill-advised!

Nature had barred fish migration for millennia past Ward Canyon, so a sudden change in that, would likely create a whole new set of problems!

These natural fish barriers arguably allowed what is known as allopatric speciation to occur, and the resulting 'Redband trout', which are actually a land-locked salmon that are most closely related to steelhead, and not to sockeye or coho salmon. Interestingly the natural range for Redband trout on the Klamath River is exclusively 'up-river' from Ward Canyon according to experts.

Redband trout can reach 24-30 inches in size and up to 30-pounds in weight. As a result of their size, in the 1800's fisherman called them salmon, because they resembled salmon. In the archeological digs of the Klamath and Modoc tribes, no salmon heads or jaw bones have been found, only body bones.

It is well known that the largest indigenous tribe in the area of Ward Canyon was the Shasta Tribe. In fact, the entirety of the portion of the Klamath River where the Klamath dams are located are on the lands that were exclusively inhabited by the Shasta.

The Shasta, and no other tribe, fished the area immediately above and below the lava dams on the Klamath River, and they caught both anadromous and non-anadromous salmonoids.

Anadromous Salmon were traded to the Klamath and Modoc tribes by the Shasta. These anadromous Salmon had their heads removed and they were taken on poles to other tribes for trade.

This of course explains the archaeological results of no heads or jaws of anadromous salmon on tribal lands of the Klamath and Modoc tribes.

On top of the foregoing hard science and engineering evidence, we now also have a board member of the Klamath River Renewal Corporation, Mr. Glen Spain saying that removing dams is about money, not salmon!

More about that here: https://www.einnews.com/pr_news/546614530/compelling-facts-condemn-krrc-s-proposed-klamath-river-dam-removal-plan

It's important to note that the non-profit shell corporation, Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) was created in full cooperation with PacificCorp as a means to shield PacificCorp from the massive liabilities that are associated to what is easily the most risk-laden dam removal project ever proposed!

2) The Klamath River Basin Compact Act (the 'Act') is controlling federal law;

This Congressional Act provides for 'beneficial uses' of the water impounded by the dams to the People of Jackson County and Oregon, and Siskiyou County and California.

Siskiyou County California and Jackson County Oregon were signatories to the ACT, and arguably are material signatories to the Act, as well as Congress and the President of the United States of America.

In regard to distribution of water under the Act, priorities in order are:

(a) Domestic use,
(b) Irrigation use,
(c) Recreational use, including use for fish and wildlife,
(d) Industrial use,
(e) Generation of hydroelectric power,
(f) Such other uses as are recognized under the laws of the state involved.

(Note: Industrial use arguably refers to water for wildfire fire-suppression; and even though it is not codified, the dams do in fact provide material flood control protections for communities and infrastructure down-river from the dams)

3) The loss of the lakes and critical shoreline ecosystems and habitats will devastate the resident threatened and endangered species of flora and fauna.

The loss of this critical habitat, which was established over millennia in and around 'Clammittee Lake', will also adversely affect resident and migratory birds that are strictly protected from 'incidental taking' by California law and Assembly Bill AB-454, Migratory birds: California Migratory Bird Protection Act.

https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201920200AB454

According to a 2006 Department of Interior publication; there are hundreds of species of flora and fauna, and that flora and fauna will be placed at risk if Copco and Iron Gate lakes are drained:

The eleven-miles of the Klamath River Canyon where these lakes are located contains an amazing diversity of wildlife, including 89 species of birds, dozens of reptiles and amphibians, several species of fish and 71 species of plants including trees, grasses and forbs. Some species of this localized flora and fauna are threatened or endangered.

These, and other facts related to the impacts of dam removal on the environment and ecosystem have been understated and obfuscated by dam-removal proponents, largely made-up of the minority-consensus groups and fishing-zealots supporting KRRC's reckless plan.

4) Copco and Iron Gate Lakes are formed by two of the four Klamath River dams. They hold a reserve of 45-Billion gallons of fresh water that is desperately needed, during what experts predict will be a period of extreme drought caused by Climate Change. The critical reserve of fresh water is essential for fighting catastrophic wildfires.

These two lakes hold a reserve of 45-Billion gallons of precious fresh water that is desperately needed for domestic wells (drinking, bathing and cooking).

Copco and Iron Gate lakes also provide a critical source of easily accessible water for firefighting aircraft (airplanes that scoop water and helicopters) tankers and fire-engines.

5) The budget for KRRC's proposed Klamath River dam-removal project is seriously inadequate!

There is no doubt that the half-decade-old obsolete $450-million (so-called “guaranteed budget”) budget that KRRC has pitched, is grossly inadequate.

A more realistic budget, is closer to $900-Million given the inflation over the half-a-decade since the now obsolete budget was calculated, coupled with huge cost increases (doubling) for construction related costs over the past year (2020-2021) due to COVID economics.

There is also no doubt whatsoever that the proposed project is laden with huge unprecedented risks, as never seen before, at every phase. And those risks and massive liabilities are like a hot potato that Pacific Corp wanted to dump. And now it seems they may have; right into the laps of California and Oregon taxpayers.

And, in a recent Decision and Order by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (‘FERC’), item number 34 warns that:

“As part of the January 13, 2021 transfer application, the States of Oregon and California have agreed to be co-licensees with the Renewal Corporation; thus, the States will not be shielded from liability.”

We have already seen smaller project outcomes that spell disaster for the massively underfunded KRRC dam removal budget, which puts Oregon and California taxpayers on the hook, for what could be a massive financial liability at a time when state budgets are strained to the max from COVID and wildfire disasters.

History of a much smaller dam removal project cost over-runs; a red flag for the larger more complex Klamath dam removal project.

According to the Penninsula Daily News in Port Angeles Washington:

The estimated cost of removing the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams from the Elwha River has increased from the original cost projection of $135 million in 2001, to later projected cost of $308-million.

Another accounting of the ‘projected costs’ regarding removal of the two Elwha dams compared to the actual costs should be a red-flag for the costs of the much larger and far more ambitious project and estimated budge of $450-million to remove four Klamath River dams:

“Removal of the Elwha Dam began in September 2011 and was finished in spring 2012, ahead of schedule. Removal of the second dam, the Glines Canyon Dam, was completed on August 26, 2014. The dam removal process was originally projected to last two and a half to three years. The estimated cost of removing both dams was $40 to $60 million. The total cost of the Elwha River restoration is approximately $351.4 million.” ~ Wiki

In the foregoing example, the smaller and simpler 2-dam removal project compared to the four dams on the Klamath River, the costs on that project tripled from what was originally projected.

And in the case of Elwha River dams, the potential for environmental, ecological and private property damages were far less.

The budget for the removal of the four (4) dams on the Klamath River was calculated using economic costs and metrics that were already many years old prior to the beginning of COVID economics, which began in 2020.

Of course, anyone in business knows that if you projected costs are based on a ‘best case’ outcome, and a mediocre, or worse yet, a bad outcome evolves, costs, damages and liabilities can escalate very quickly and steeply.

There’s no doubt that dam construction, and dam destruction requires road construction, bridges, trucking, heavy equipment, materials, labor, fuels and insurance. Therefore, the following comparison is valid.

The Associated General Contractors of America has issued a new report and graph-analyses showing the huge impacts that COVID economics (period April 2020 thru February 2021) has had on skyrocketing costs related to construction projects.

The Associated General Contractors of America study exemplifies the huge cost increases and long delays that have only recently occurred, and certainly years-after KRRC’s budget projections for their dam removal project were calculated.

For the purpose of cost-impact analyses, the COVID economics study began in April 2020 thru February 2021. (https://www.agc.org/sites/default/files/AGC 2021 Inflation Alert – Ver1.1.pdf).

The Q-1 2021 Associated General Contractors of America report stated:

"The construction industry is currently experiencing an unprecedented mix of steeply rising materials prices, snarled supply chains, and staffing difficulties, combined with slumping demand that is keeping many contractors from passing on their added costs”.

This brand-new report from the Associated General Contractors of America report spells financial disaster for KRRC’s project.
And the burden of that disaster will surely fall upon the weary shoulders of California and Oregon taxpayers.

All things considered, and based upon what we do know, a budget in the realm of $900-million dollars would be in line with proper updates and adjustments to the old budget of only $450-million.

WEST PALM BEACH, FL, USA, July 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sir Hemp Co. will be in attendance all season long at the West Palm Beach GreenMarket this upcoming fall. The local farmers market is the best in the area. It was named the #1 farmers market in the U.S. by USA Today 10 Best for 2021. The 2021-2022 market season begins in the fall and runs through April. It is held every Saturday beginning October 2, 2021. Market will be in downtown West Palm Beach, located at 101 S Clematis St, West Palm Beach, FL 33401.

In addition to offering their product line of premium hemp extracts, Sir Hemp Co. owners want to bring awareness and education about the world of hemp extracts including CBD oil and edibles. “There are too many bad apples out on the market… ranging from mislabeled products on Amazon to local gas stations and vape shops. Come to find out that CBD products are not allowed on the Amazon platform, so these companies are not even operating within the confines of law as they are mislabeling their products. Not only that, prices and quality are all over the place” said Sir Hemp Founder and President, Alfredo Cernuda. “Some of these companies including retailers are not licensed by the State (Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services). There are companies operating in and around Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties, etc. that ‘sell’ CBD without them even being licensed by the State of Florida. The consumers need to be careful what they purchase to ingest. I hope to bring much needed awareness to those who stop by our tent at the City of West Palm Beach Farmers Market. Even if they don’t buy our products, they will be armed with the know-how on how to seek quality products.”

Klamath River Dams: KRRC says 'Drain 45-Billion Gallons of Fresh Water From Lakes During Extreme Drought and Wildfires'

In the midst of Climate Change, Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) proposal will drain 45-billion gallons of fresh water from Copco and Iron Gate Lakes

In the midst of extreme drought and catastrophic wildfires, Klamath River Renewal Corporation ('KRRC') is proposing what is tantamount to draining our canteens before we cross a massive desert”

— William E. Simpson II – Naturalist

YREKA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — It's no secret that the west coast of America is gripped by extreme drought that is forecast to continue into the foreseeable future.

According to experts, Climate Change is driving the weather patterns that are now depriving the western U.S. of normal annual precipitation, as well as the snow-pack that is critical for water storage into spring and summer.

The results of Climate Change are drier, hotter and longer summers. And with that comes the extreme drought and catastrophic wildfires.

The Dumbest Idea Ever?

A shell corporation going by the name of the 'Klamath River Renewal Corporation' (KRRC) wants to remove the dams on the Klamath River that hold 45-billion gallons of fresh water.

Copco and Iron Gate lakes are two large lakes that hold 45-Billion gallons of water. More here: https://www.einnews.com/pr_news/544283346/klamath-dams-removal-in-the-midst-of-water-crisis-antithesis-of-water-and-wildlife-conservation

These two lakes are formed by two of the 4-dams on the Klamath River.

Draining the 45-Billion gallons of water from Copco and Iron Gate Lakes and destroying structurally sound water-storage dams during a water crises that is combined with catastrophic wildfires is just insane.

Western states, especially California and Oregon, are facing evolving extreme drought resulting from Climate Change, that according to some climate models may last for a decade or more.

California desperately needs more dams, not less.

The insane level of irony in KRRC's proposal to drain the 45-billion gallons of fresh water from Iron Gate and Copco Lakes, and also destroy their dams, which are structurally sound, that today would cost about $1-billion dollars just to replace them, is that they are also planning to charge Californians and Oregonians close to a $1-Billion dollars to destroy the Klamath River dams and drain that precious water, destroying that water storage and management system!

And instead of burning fossil fuels to make the replacement energy for about 80,000 homes and businesses if the dams are removed, by keeping them, electrical consumers can take comfort in knowing the energy they are using is clean hydro-electric power.

No water to drink, shower or flush toilets!

In Southern Oregon and Northern California, domestic and municipal wells have gone dry, or will soon be dry.

Thousands of people in several counties in Northern California and Southern Oregon are suffering severe water shortages. In the Klamath Basin, residents are already having to bucket borrowed water just to have some drinking water and flush toilets, as over 100 domestic wells have gone dry, with hundreds more at risk of going dry..

And according to some long-range forecasting models, we are in a long period of extreme drought that could last for a decade or more!

In the midst extreme drought and catastrophic wildfires incinerating the west, the Klamath River Renewal Corporation ('KRRC'), a non-profit shell corporation is proposing what is tantamount to draining our canteens before we cross a massive desert.

Draining 45-Billion gallons of stored fresh water during an extreme drought has to be the dumbest idea ever!

Why would anyone even suggest such a crazy concept?

Well, Mr. Glen Spain, a member of KRRC's board of directors may have said it best, when he said it's about money, not salmon!

The False Premise

The key premise that has been served-up to the public and legislators is that removing the dams supposedly will restore a mythical salmon migration. And even if that was a good trade-off and exchange for people going without water to drink, bath and flush toilets, and having ample water to fight catastrophic wildfires, facts prove their 'premise' for dam removal is a fake!

A 1913 drawing by the famous engineer/dam builder J.C. Boyle shows that a naturally-formed 31-foot-tall lava dam was holding back the Klamath River creating 'Clammittee Lake', and was present when construction on Copco 1 dam began!

In fact, according to engineering drawings, the 132-foot-tall Copco 1 dam was built about two-tenths (2/10) of a mile downstream from the natural 31-foot-tall lava dam and Clammittee Lake. (SEE IMAGE of J.C. Boyle's drawing)

And when the Klamath River filled-in behind the larger man-made dam, the smaller dam and its natural lake were covered under the waters of the new larger lake, which is very similar in size to an even older lake that was formed in the same location by an ancient 130-foot-tall lava dam that stood for millennia, before finally eroding. When that ancient 130-foot-tall dam eroded, it allowed Clammittee Lake to then settle behind the remaining 31-foot-tall natural lava dam holding back the Klamath River, and barring upstream fish migration.

Nature, not man, had ordained that fish could not migrate past this point of multiple large lava dams for millennia!

Hard geologic and engineering evidence proves there was no fish migration past Ward Canyon the series of natural lava dams that blocked fish migration for many millennia.

Extreme Drought and Water Crises Amidst Catastrophic Wildfires

Medford is running out of water as are many surrounding towns. Hornbrook, CA is 'out of water'!

In Klamath Falls, hundreds of domestic wells are already dry, and more are expected to fail in the coming days and weeks.

Bend has its tourists on water rations. Ashland Oregon and Yreka, CA are next, as are other towns in Oregon and CA!

Firefighters are now having trouble fighting catastrophic wildfires due to limited water!

Showing up at a wildfire with a 'dry hose' is a recipe for more towns and cites getting burned to the dirt!

Amazingly, with all that's going-on, there are some people who think draining lakes is a 'good idea'… yes, it's true, there are people who are that poorly informed.

It's primarily uncaring people who reside outside the region, and the misinformed locals, who want to drain Billions of gallons of water into the sea!

And that idiotic agenda is driven by misleading propaganda fed into the media by KRRC, a non-profit shell company originally formed in an office in New York City.

Considering these intolerable conditions, which are predicted to get worse in the coming years, must we also suffer KRRC's plan to charge Oregon and California taxpayers $1-Billion to remove the Klamath dams and drain 45-billion gallons of precious fresh water from Copco and Iron Gate Lakes into the sea?

And shockingly, at the same time as promoting the removal of the Klamath River dams, California governor Gavin Newsom, is tapping the wallets of Californian taxpayers $5.1-Billion for a water bill to, now get this, 'build dams' !

Does the movie 'Idiocracy' come to anyone's mind? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sP2tUW0HDHA
