E15

Just read recommendation to allow E15 fuel to be sold. Yes you say it is for 2001 or later highway vehicles.

Nuclear fission

There's enough Uranium & Thorium in the oceans to provide all of the world's energy, and rivers renew the supply all the time. No need for countries to fight wars over supplies. The UN estimates that smoke from fossil fuels and biomass kills 2.5 million people per year (that's far more than Chernobyl, every single day), and that number would be far higher without nuclear.

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.

Burning shiny paper from magazines??

My comment is a question please. I get a lot of magazines with shiny pages. I am told not to burn them because they give off taxic gases because of the ink. I make biomass briquettes from shredded paper, grass clippings, and wood chips. Can I shred these shiny magazine pages to make briquettes for burning? Does the ink give off poison gases? jakesunrider@yahoo.com. thanks

URBAN SPRAWL

Provide awareness to consumers who buy homes in cleared land that is not in proximity to established infrastructure. Building roads to desolate areas is so detrimental to our planet in so many ways. It's so prevalent in Central Florida where developers rule.

Replacement

Find viable earth friendly replacements for the products we already use. The reason there is such an abundance of these items is because we use them. Find a new product that acts in the same way plastic does, but that will also break down and not harm the enviroment.
