If you had a chance to ask DOCUMERICA a question — what would it be?

Is there a collection or photograph that speaks to you? Have you come across images of home, that brought back memories of the change?

It has been a tremendous opportunity to speak with the men and women who helped to create this documentary. Their dedication has gifted our country with a lasting and incredibly open, window to our past. Each time that I am in touch with the photographers that are still with us, and Gifford Hampshire’s family, I find that they are bursting with pride that it has come back into the light.

To celebrate this moment in history, I would like to share your thoughts with them, as well as bring their stories back to you.

Ask DOCUMERICA a question here; as a comment below this post. Each Wednesday, I will feature a question and response.

How often can we connect with history? I hope you take advantage of this opportunity and I look forward to the conversation.

    I have a question Can we do this ?

    In my opinion

    We need to replace the fossil fuel power plants, the primary source of GHG. Now!

    At a scale required to accomplish this task :

    Ethanol starves people : not a viable option.

    Fracking releases methane : not a viable option.

    Cellulose Bio Fuel Uses Food Land : not a viable option

    Solar uses food land : Not a viable option

    Wind is Intermittent : Not a viable option

    All Human and Agricultural Organic Waste can be converted to hydrogen, through exposure intense radiation!

    The Radioactive Materials exist now, and the Organic waste is renewable daily.

    Ending the practice of dumping sewage into our water sources.

    Air, Water, Food and Energy issues, receive significant positive impacts .

    Reducing illness / health care costs as well !
