Pet Waste

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?

Energy - electricity

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 »

Soils biosphere

I we accept the Bible as an historical document.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 »

Gasoline cans used for home use.

The only gas cans I can find at the hardware store are those that reduce the amount of gas vapor that is released. I hate them. I believe they cause MORE pollution than the old style. Everytime I fill my lawn mower I end up spilling gas on the driveway, the lawn mower and on me.

Gasoline containers.

Guess I am a little behind on issues. Recently someone stole 2 gas containers I have had for many years. I didn't know until I went to find replacements about the new EPA regulations on gas containers. The only thing I could buy had the new spouts. This is totally absurd and ridiculous. It's almost impossible to use these without spilling gas. I never spilled any with the old ones. Just try to fuel a small leaf blower ...more »
