Ideas can be pushed from the bottom to the top with some education. Stay strong.

In our culture is not knew win-win solution. We are just to do top to bottom, or in anthropologys’ is Paternalistic. In my office, I am not decision maker and then doesn’t create my ideas. But win-win solution maybe rise, for example, deal for corruption or for something interests. I am sorry, I am not like that…..

Perhaps you could add a link to the researchers web site to help readers who want to dig into more detail. Also, we are experimenting with aerosols in an environmental chamber and a story on this EPA research might make an addition to your blog.

The California Air Resources Board released a study on January 12, 2010 as part of the “Chair’s Air Pollution Siminar Series” on cardiovascular response to freeway air. This study had some significant results. Unfiltered freeway air compared to filtered air breathing resulted in an increased frequency of atrial arrhythmias that can trigger sustained arrhythmias in susceptible people. An increased concentration of NTproBNP in the unfiltered air is a marker for intra-atrial pressure, and an increase in concentration of VEGF in unfiltered air is a marker for vascular injury. This is more reason why we should convert to the all electric powered car and the hydrogen fueled car and use solar energy to recharge electric car batteries and to manufacture the hydrogen. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Were you one of those “resettled”?

What types of air or other pollution do you suspect?
If you know what the processes are in your area, you can test for fewer pollutants. It much easier and cheaper if you know what to look for. You might even employ local schoolchildren to help. Is it mostly from burning fuel for electricity? Mining? Manufacturing?

As far as the flooding. Are there any natural reservoirs that can be fitted (with pipes or tunnels) to empty slowly through an electric turbine? These could be used to redirect some water quickly during flood danger times and produce clean energy. If enough energy can be obtained to pay for the project, after proper review of any other negative impact on the land, it could be a win-win.

Our operator, for example in Lunang Resettlement area, West Sumatera, just 6th graduate. Their responsibility have to maintain and arrange spill way of floodgate, to measure rainfall and to announce emergencies conditions. There isn’t air pollution equipments and have not research center for data processing.
I am so sad, because they are only government part timer………
