RESEARCH:CO2 from fossil fuels is a good emmission!

COLONEL DAVID HALSEY P.E. 4-30-2012 One of the most studied mysteries of atmospheric science is how a gas molecule such as carbon dioxide (CO₂), which is almost one and a half times heavier than the air column, can defy gravity and rise to the upper atmosphere. It’s understandable how a heavier gas can be propelled within the boundaries of the Hydrologic Cycle (aka Water Cycle) because of the mixing (thermal, wind ...more »

RMRR guidelines

How does a manufacturing compliance officer decide if they need to follow New Source Review (NSR) or New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) regulations if they have repaired or replaced a "facility" that resulted in an increase in emissions as defined by EPA?

Ozone non-attainment

The EPA seems reluctant to assess compliance with ozone standards in Metropolitan Statistical Areas on an annual basis. I live in an area that has exceeded the ozone standard for 4 years and yet we are officially still in attainment.
