One surrounds us almost 24/7 in artificial electromagnetic fields and radio frequency radiation the other puts nano particles into our water, bodies, lungs, etc. None of which have been determined to be safe.

There are a number of empty oil tankers in that area. They must be diverted and made available to receive liquids pumped from the oil slick area. They will take on much water as well as the oil, but their tankage can serve as oil separators which will then allow the water to be pumped out. If necessary, the mixed liquids can be transported to open ocean to be pumped out there with less harm to the coastline. The Coast Guard and Navy can provide the pumps.

Its not going to get fixed over night but its going to be a long tedious job which requires dedication from all.

Granted, all companies are in business to make money, but there are jobs available in U.S. manufacturing facilities where safety and the health of the environment are priorities that rank high on the corporate agenda. I am fortunate enough to work for a company that manufactures automotive parts. We currently recycle 90% of all our trash and debris instead of landfilling. We have decrease the amount of hazardous waste that we produce by 25% over the last year. There are chances to make a difference even without the “green” label.

The sooner will oil spill prevention will make the next youth in the future generation to perhaps not deal with oil spill but how to create oil spill for a control enviroment for backetrial growth which might make the eco system change — but we need to perhaps this generation study as much as bateria and micro — this will perhaps cure all deseases.

Their movements have surprised , stressed, shocked, and without instructed. They hate routinity, bureaucratity and opportunity. So, they define of it like spinning wheel looking for format. If they discover it, they should move…..!!!! Don’t worry, if we still hear baby cries !

Many environmental issues are related to the broad overarching issue of climate change. They include better, cleaner, and safer to handle fuel technologies like hydrogen and all-electric powered vehicles; Using solar power to produce electricity instead of diesel, coal or nuclear fuel; creating good systems of transit, including ensuring the integration of highspeed rail with city and county bus and light rail lines; also, using light rail as a means to make communities more attractive places and to increase transit use. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.
