Comments on: Share Your Ideas to Advance EPA Science, Research, and Technological Innovation http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/07/share-your-ideas-2/ The EPA Blog Mon, 03 Aug 2015 21:22:16 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: Justin http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/07/share-your-ideas-2/#comment-19983 Tue, 14 Dec 2010 22:17:37 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=3416#comment-19983 I know I sound like a typical American internet user, but I would appreciate more videos on this blog. There’s so many aspects of the EPA, and so many projects that are occurring because of the EPA, that I know little to nothing about. Maybe like a documentary type series on exciting things that are happening? I know I’d really enjoy that on this blog.

Not exactly sure how to be successful. But your brief article and comments have helped.

I saw talk of technology. I really think video blog posts are really effective. Especially when it comes to science. People love to see science in action.

Great idea about covering EPA toxicology studies in a future blog post. I’ll ask around and see if I can find one of our scientists to share what they do. Look for that in a future “Science Wednesday” post.

Why only do science on a wednesday?
Science in technologies should be every day!

Do you think the internet (www) would be a form of environmental approach in the business world?

Where do you get your statistics from when dropping a research?

That’s alot of questions… I wouldn’t mind coming back and discuss about it a little,

Do you?

Thank you for your precious time,

Unfortunately, science education in the K-12 school systems is not what it could or should be. Science needs to be explained in ways that most people can understand what is being said. Or, people may be more influenced by FOX News, radio talk show hosts, and concervative editoral writers than they are by objective scientific reporting. Complex subjects cannot be adequately explained in one article. A series of several articles maybe needed and these articles should follow one each day through the series and be as free as possible jargon and overly long, complex words. This will go far to improving public outreach. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Bringing research and technology to the marketplace is a way to get communities involved. Creating jobs and a tax base is what communities are interested in. The research and technology coming out of EPA must be accessible and marketable in order to engage communities. Environmental incubators and commercialization centers may be a way to link science to communities

Water may eventually have the same formalized requirements as GHG. There is an opportunity for anyone who wants to participate on behalf of the US in this initial effort. (We are still working on the definiton of water footprint). Contact standards@asq.org to join.

That gives the blog a sense of pointlessness.

and I guess one other general comment. use more graphics. charts, tables….
