But I also think there should be someone in the scientific community or engineering community that can develop and make commercially affordable scrubbers to go into power plant stacks to eliminate or greatly cut back pollution from those sources. We also need to do something to get cleaner aviation fuel. Collecting rain water is a great way to get water for plants and other outside uses, but if you live under a flight path there will be a thin layer of microspic particles from jet fuel exhaust on top of the roofs, on plants, and everything outside. But this is an issue that seems not to be looked at as closely as problems with diesel and gasoline. We now have hydrogen power for many types of surface vehicles, someone needs to invent a hydrogen engine for aircraft. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Instead of always dealing with symptoms, why doesn’t Michelle Oakes invent a device that will scrub 100% of the emmissions coming from coal fired power plants and jet planes??? Surely modern technology with its advanced expertise can do that much!
