I believe you to be wrong. Also, you must figure jobs into the moves you make for without them you will not be paid, people will go homeless, and nothing you try do will make any difference. We, humans, are not the problem. Read the literature and see that Earth’s changes are in cycles and that your so-called green companies have all failed.

What is EPA proposing in the way of education, outreach, resources and, if needed, manpower to arm the locals with what they need to adapt to our ever-changing climate? Also, will there be a champion (a dedicated person or persons) at the national level within EPA to get this done? …….at the regional level? ……..at the state level? Who are those folks and how will they interact at the local level?

These practices pollute & use up our precious water. When will they be stopped in favor of green energy?

It also is a green industry with great potential for job development and economic growth. In recent years, EPA has all but stopped providing support for recycling grants and programs; whether diverting materials to recycling or the use of recycled feedstock. What will EPA be doing to re-invigorate the status of recycling as part of a green economy and important player in climate change initiatives?

What will the agency do to reengage the states recycling market development programs going forward. Using recycled material in the manfacturing has a huge connection to green house gas reduction.

It is not just man who has changed the atmosphere, the earth itself has changed. This should be added into the decision. Thank you.

Note that the Alliance for Climate Education, which gives fantastic, motivating presentations to young people, received a 2012 EPA New England Environmental Merit Award: http://www.epa.gov/region1/ra/ema/2012recipients.html (scroll down to Environmental, Community, Academia & Nonprofit section)
