Barack Obama turned his back against Renewable Energy and Cheap Living

Posted by admin on January 31, 2013 in Renewable Energy with 2 Comments


If there was cooperation it wouldn’t take long for America or any country to be energy independent with renewable non-toxic hemp fuel. There has been a Media Blackout, media blackouts are used during times of war to keep useful intelligence from the enemy. Cannabis(hemp) prohibition is keeping the cost of living artificially high and renewable hemp fuel can make all poisonous energy obsolete making the cost of living cheaper for everyone. Barack Obama said he was going to develop every source of American energy so why is Hemp Fuel not being used? Why is a Canadian trying more than Americans and the President of the United States of America to save America and the world with renewable non-toxic fuel? Why was Hemp Fuel not even up for debate during the Staged presidential election debates?

Posted by admin on January 31, 2013 in Environment Protection with 2 Comments

I noticed that there are not too many propositions on this year’s ballot, in my state, that would better the environment. What would be a good policy that would benefit the environment?

The Environmental Protection Act is law already.

what fire protection is needed to start a bakery in nyc?

Posted by admin on January 29, 2013 in Environment Protection with 1 Comment

im planning to open a small bakery, and don’t know what kind of fire protection is needed and mandatory. do i need a sprinklers system, a hood ventilation system etc. as is my first location i want to know what are the most and whats not necessary.

Time to call FDNY’s fire protection office. There are lots of rules and regulations, there are so many variables that its easier to call them and have a sit down and explain what you want to do. They have a bunch of regulations they must follow and none of them are inexpensive, but in the end you will have a fire safe work environment. You may save some $$ on insurance by doing the right thing also.

Dredging the Hudson River – A Benchmark for Environmental Cleanup

Posted by admin on January 28, 2013 in Environment Protection with 10 Comments

Decades after polychlorinated biphenyls, better known as PCBs, were banned, they persist in the environment, harming wildlife and threatening human health.

Nearly 200 miles of the Hudson River is contaminated with PCBs because of routine dumping from ~1940-1977. Last week, at the end of October, GE concluded six months of dredging to remove PCBs from the most contaminated areas of what is currently one of the country’s biggest Superfund sites.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is overseeing the project. Duke alum David Rosoff (MS ’90, geology) is EPA’s on-scene coordinator of the project.

Jeffrey Ball: Rational Approaches to Renewable Energy

Posted by admin on January 28, 2013 in Clean Energy with 1 Comment

Speaker: Jeffrey Ball, Scholar-in-Residence, Steyer Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance, Stanford University

Renewable Energy is becoming big business and that business is now in crisis. From Silicon Valley to Washington and Berlin to Beijing, many investors in solar, wind and other clean-energy technologies are losing money. Yesterday’s green euphoria is giving way to a realization of the challenges of scaling up fossil-fuel alternatives. But these growing pains aren’t a reason to abandon the renewable-energy push; they’re a reason to get smarter about it.

Renewable-energy technologies are growing up and now, if they’re going to become a significant part of the global energy mix, the world’s approach to them will have to grow up too. Jeffrey Ball, a longtime energy reporter and environment editor at The Wall Street Journal and now a scholar-in-residence at Stanford University, will discuss the scramble for a more economically efficient way to expand renewables.
