Has the EPA ever considered creating a separate waste disposal system for people's pets? For example, I own a cat and place its waste products and litter in a dumpster. Wouldn't a separate system for this type of waste help the earth?

Research suggests that we might also be able to generate massive volumes of electricity by constructing massive floating platforms or decks upon the ocean surface that would then allow us to harvest the oceans heaving potential by also anchoring cables to the sea floor, which would then turn massive generators. The key is in designing proper measures to protect the limitations of the massive anchors, against the pull ...more »
Honeybee populations are drastically declining due in part to viruses, monoculture and pesticides, but also due to fewer plants and flowers and habitat that support bees. If there are no bees there is no pollination and no fruits and many vegetables that rely on bees.

When a consumer cancels service, DirecTV selectively decides what receivers/hardware is to be returned. The hardware works without issues but DirecTV only wants the newer equipment returned and leaves the perfectly working equipment with the customer. It cannot ...more »
I we accept the Bible as an historical document. We find that Mathusala lived 1059 years and Noah lived 1050 years. When the great flood was over lifespan was reduced to 100 years plus or minus. This conveys that the terrestrial mineral trace elements had largely been moved from the terrestial to the deep marine oceanic. Since the beginning of ON-OFF irrigation and other agricultural practices the mineral trace elements ...more »
We are killing our planet and killing ourselves and all future generations. We must immediately make plans to stop all nuclear plants and safely store all materials.
During 1960s, the chemical fertilizers were introduced to the fields in the name of green revolution which created immense imbalance in soil chemistry, the soil biota. As a result of which the natural balance was totally disrupted. This green revolution created hundreds of environmental problems during last 5 decades.
