I see it being used for large building cooling systems, no problem. Was that only another “gentlemen’s agreement” everyone just winks at to go on with business as usual?

The Fish Tissue Study is a very important example of what can be done. Working with state and local government and industry is and will be important on a wide range of environmental issues. One is the GREENCHILL Partnership Program to cut commercial refrigeration and freezing system greenhouse gas and ozone depleting chemical emissions. This includes USEPA, several grocery chains, a number of stores, equipment manufacturers, and recyclers. The California Air Resources Board is also interested in the GREENCHILL Program for best practices and case studies as it moves forward to implement greenhouse gas reductions on commgercial air conditioning and freezing systems. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

But if all the nations agreed to recycle 100 % of their waste and garbage, the global ocean and the six continents could be returned to their natural order, and a peacefully smaller human population could be healthier and happier.
