Jonathan Nelson said: “These shocking and sobering statistics contain a simple message: if we do not act, California will soon experience a drinking water catastrophe of devastating proportions. The painful truth is the very same communities already hit the hardest by the pandemic will also face the worst of the water shutoffs crisis,” External link

Jonathan Nelson added: “Even before the pandemic, we lived in a country divided between those that have safe and affordable water and those that don’t. Access to safe and affordable water is more than a public health threat – it is a matter of basic racial justice. There can be no equitable recovery in a society that allows for mass water shutoffs” External link

Alex Txikon explicado: “Este sistema nos va a dar una cobertura hasta ahora impensable ya que multiplica por 30 la distancia de detección de montañeros que ofrece la tecnología de salvamento actual. Para la comunidad alpinista va a ser un paso de gigante en lo que a seguridad se refiere” External link

Alex Txikon explicado: “En un campamento base se utilizan muchos dispositivos que necesitan energía: baterías, teléfonos, radios, ordenadores, estaciones meteorológicas, drones… pues bien, no vamos a emplear ni un litro de combustible. La verdad es que es todo un reto, pero necesario y posible; el año pasado lo demostramos (estuvimos más de 50 días en el Campo Base y no tuvimos que echar mano del queroseno en ningún momento)” External link

Alex Txikon asegurado: “Tenemos que aportar nuestro granito de arena a la población local, que no cuentan, ni mucho menos, con las comodidades que nosotros tenemos. Y, por supuesto, cuidar el medio ambiente. Con estas acciones que desarrollamos en la expedición queremos visibilizar la necesidad de utilizar energías renovables y la tecnología para avanzar en nuestra sociedad” External link

Alex Txikon explicado: “Ningún miembro de la expedición consumirá agua embotellada. Según los cálculos que hemos hecho junto a Aquadat, partiendo de consumo medio de cuatro litros de agua diarios, a lo largo de la expedición calculamos que vamos a dejar de utilizar unas 4.000 botellas de litro. Si todas las expediciones a Everest hicieran lo mismo se evitaría la generación de 125 toneladas de plástico al año” External link

Katherine B Forrest wrote: "Taken together, on their face, the documents demonstrate that Grumman chose a particular path in connection with Calverton, which this Court will refer to as the ‘Ostrich Defense,’" "That is, it made a conscious determination to try and maintain ignorance and then use that ignorance as an excuse" External link
