re: Obama Boosts Federal R&D By $2 Billion
Over 90% of Earth's atmospheric emissions come from the 1200 plus active volcanoes on the planet; and to a significantly lesser degree from large desert dust storms and forest fires. Human emissions are a distant 4th being less than 10% of the total. So all of the listed goals are erroneous. A massive shift in government goals are needed, especially at the EPA, to focus on the actual large natural pollution sources, instead of unlawfully obstructing human endeavors as the government has done now for at least 50 years. With the beyond massive ignorance going on, we are perishing inch by inch. To add insult to injury, over 95% of the water and land born pollution is from the deposition or falling out of the atmosphere of these beyond huge natural pollution sources. The only human source emissions which are currently a problem are ground transport internal combustion engines in metro areas. With more and more electric vehicle use and the introduction of fuel cell vehicles, even this human source pollution should go away in the next 10 to 40 years. Would someone or some group for the sake of greatly reducing human misery please refocus the government to these real problems; instead of the incredible waste and the extremely low priority activities they are generating.
