Martha's Vineyard, MA...Hi everybody. Earlier this summer, Michelle, Malia, Sasha and I headed west—to the national parks at Carlsbad Caverns and Yosemite. And I’ve got to say, it was a breath of fresh air. We explored hundreds of feet underground, standing beneath dripping stalactites in New Mexico. We hiked up a misty trail next to a waterfall in California. And I even took a few pictures of my own – not bad, right?

Huge Crowd At Tree Mortality Meeting. No Quick Fixes & Lots Of Work Ahead.
Posted by: thepinetree on 08/15/2016 12:48 PM
Avery, CA...The Avery Middle School Gym was filled to overflowing on Saturday with community members, government representatives, and private companies concerned about tree mortality in our area. The cliff note version...The problem is huge and it may get worse before it gets better. The main culprits are beetles, drought & overcrowded forests. If standing dead trees on your property could impact utility lines, roadways or could cause an issue to the public there is probably help available to remove them. If standing dead trees on Stanislaus National Forest Lands could impact your your home there are probably ways to get them removed.
Presidential Weekly Address: Providing a Better, Cleaner, Safer Future for Our Children
Posted by: thepinetree on 08/14/2016 03:36 PM
Hi, everybody. One of the most urgent challenges of our time is climate change. We know that 2015 surpassed 2014 as the warmest year on record – and 2016 is on pace to be even hotter. When I took office, I said this was something we couldn’t kick down the road any longer – that our children’s future depended on our action. So we got to work, and over the past seven-and-a-half years, we’ve made ambitious investments in clean energy, and ambitious reductions in our carbon emissions. We’ve multiplied wind power threefold. We’ve multiplied solar power more than thirtyfold. In parts of America, these clean power sources are finally cheaper than dirtier, conventional power. And carbon pollution from our energy sector is at its lowest level in 25 years, even as we’re continuing to grow our economy.

CCWD Has Spent 70 Years Preparing For Drought ~ Guest Opinion Part One By Terry Strange
Posted by: thepinetree on 08/12/2016 01:44 PM
San Andreas, CA...Of the many natural resources found in Calaveras County, water is arguably the most valuable, and protecting access to the water that originates here is critical to the county’s future. This has long been recognized by the Calaveras County Water District, which has been a faithful steward of the county’s greatest asset for the past 70 years. Thankfully, the people of Calaveras County have consistently supported these efforts. Like the county, the District has grown over those decades and as of July 2016, it supplies water to about 21,000 people, local businesses, agriculture and other beneficial uses. It also provides about 11,500 people with wastewater service, and the vast majority of treated water is recycled and put to beneficial use, such as golf course irrigation.
