I attended GMI, an Engineering College owned by the GM Corporation. I majored in Metallurgy and minored in Chemistry in the 5 year program and graduated at the top of my class. I became an FBI Agent, under their science program, right after graduation.
By the 1970s, the US was in serious pollution trouble. Most States had factories and waste products. Those were the days that “dilution was the solution to pollution”…dump it in the lake! We desperately needed an Environmental Protection Agency and Laws. On 12-2-70, President Nixon created the EPA by EO! They directed the FBI to be the lead investigative Agency, US Attorneys to be the prosecutors and gave the States the ability to enforce EPA regulations. I reluctantly “accepted” the order (no choice), to initiate the FBI Environmental Crimes Program for the Western District of NY, a 17 county area. I was firmly entrenched in the Violent Crimes program but agreed to do the EPA thing for a few years as there truly was a need as witnessed by the Love Canal, in my home town of Niagara Falls, NY. I had a personal interest! I attended EPA schools with then Erie County Prosecutor now Judge Sheila DiTullio, and AUSA Marty Littlefield to learn the laws and then to train other investigators. Both Marty and Sheila were top prosecutors. Congress passed numerous Hazardous Waste laws sometimes referred to as the big 8 laws: RECRA (the cradle to grave law), CIRCLA, CLEAN AIR, CLEAN WATER, TSCA and many more. I worked very closely with the NY Dept of Conservation (DEC) and they were the lead agency in NY to enforce the EPA regulations. There was virtually no EPA presence in NY in the late 1970s! DEC did their job then and probably does now!
We investigated illegal dumping of “toxic” waste and I drew up several Search Warrants and obtained the first “Federal” Conviction for Environmental Crimes in western NY and closed one Hazardous Waste Disposal Faculty. There were numerous allegations of illegal transport and disposal of highly active radiation waste at the West Valley, NY Hazardous Radiation Cleanup site so much so that the then USA Dennis Vacco, AUSA Littlefield, my SAC and I met with the Chief Deputy Attorney General. Dennis did a superb job leading the charge and convinced him to allow us to execute a Search Warrant on the Facility. This was the #1 case in the Country at the time. Understand that we had found that, at the time, the biggest violators of the EPA Laws, in the US, were none other than our own DOD! This was not a DOD site but the entire country was on “toxic waste” alert!
I drew up the affidavit, AUSA Littlefield drew up the warrant and we executed it, and thank God we found that the allegations were not true. The contractors at West Valley were doing an excellent job following all the laws and were actually more cautious that required! They processed Nuclear liquid into glass balls for safer disposal. The radiation in some enclosed areas was deadly and amazingly they had it completely contained and under control! Believe me we went in VERY tough and were very surprised and happy that a very dangerous site was extremely safe!!
For many years the EPA provided an essential service HOWEVER things have changed! The EPA is now doing more harm to our economy than good for the environment! They have over regulated to the point that they have made doing business in the US too expensive for manufacturers who produce waste and CO2, which is ALL manufacturers. They have chased those jobs to 3rd world countries that have NO EPAs, NO hazardous waste laws, NO “lead paint” law, NO OSHA laws, NO labor laws…so we are buying products, made in countries that violate everything we spent billions to clean up, and at the expense of our work force and THE ENVIRONMENT !!!!!
It’s time to turn ALL EPA functions over to the States which are doing EPA’s job anyway and close the doors on EPA completely. Their budget back then was 15 billion a year!!!They did their job, very well, until they were forced to create laws! Now it’s time to put things back in order and allow Congress to make the laws, not regulatory Agencies. The States are well prepared to handle the job.
These are IRREFUTABLE FACTS about CO2 and its value to mankind…anyone who tells you otherwise already has an opinion and doesn’t want to know the facts…walk away, PERIOD;
- Carbon dioxide is essential for the production of FOOD and oxygen!
- Trees and plant life require a MINIMUM CO2 of 180 to 200 ppm, by volume, to SURVIVE. Anything less and they die and so will you!
- Current CO2 concentrations in our atmosphere are about 340ppm!
- Ideal CO2 for plant life and you is between 1000 to 2000ppm !
- Plant life in the USA is currently “starving” for CO2 and CO2 emissions MUST be increased to at least 1000ppm!!!!
- If you enclose a green house with green life, the CO2 concentration will diminish to almost zero and all plant life will die without CO2!
- If you pump CO2 into that same greenhouse from burnt coal or ANY fossil fuel, the plant life will flourish! So if your plants are dying in your green house, introduce CO2!
- Scientists have no idea what impact CO2, produced by man, has on the Earth’s climate, except that it’s essential!
- “Excess” CO2 falls into the Oceans, increasing Ocean plant growth and seems to follow unexplained “Mother Nature” balances between CO2, our atmosphere and our Oceans!
God blessed America with an abundance of Natural resources from trees and fresh water to Natural Gas (enough to power the entire US indefinitely), coal (enough to power America for a hundred years at least), oil (more than all OPEC combined), Uranium, Gold, Silver, you name it we got it, BUT we aren’t using it wisely!!! Here’s some ideas;
Direct all the States to build a new power plant with interest paying loans (stimulus loans) from the government. They must use made in the USA materials and US citizens. When built, they must sell to private utility companies and repay the loans. Put massive green houses next to/near the fossil fuel plants and pipe their CO2 emissions into the food growing plants! Loan stimulus money, the same way to the necessary steel, concrete, drywall plant to build the power plants! Then turn to our Grid and same deal and… make it EMP proof!
We have the safest most technologically advanced Nuclear power plants in the world. They are the cleanest and most efficient power plants, next to hydro. Build them as well!
Regarding the US oil finds, we have the LARGEST oil discoveries in the world and more oil than all OPEC combined! The largest is the Green River Reserve,(oil shale), in Colorado, and after 3,000 test wells, according to government sources, has enough “usable” oil to provide all America’s needs, by itself, for 50 years. The second is the Bakkan in Williston, North Dakota with estimates of maybe 20 billion barrels (maybe 50 years worth also). It went from zero to 1.25 million barrels a day in a year and a half! Prudhoe Bay, Alaska is the largest producing oil reserve in the US!
The oil shale in Colorado is actually a solid with oil in it that must be removed. It is expensive but worth doing however it’s on government lands and Obama stopped everything just like the pipeline.
Saudi Arabia dropped the OPEC barrel price which caused the Bakkan to cut way back. N. D. went to zero unemployment and an average income of $60,000 because of the Bakkan! Because of Saudi Arabia, unemployment is climbing. Saudi Arabia must NOT control our economy!
GLOBAL WARMING- THERE IS NONE!
The 18 ½ year Global Warming debacle was caused by a man who got a “D” in his only science course. He changed what his Professor said from something that was true to something he could use to make millions from even if it wasn’t true! He bilked hundreds of millions of dollars by claiming CO2 is causing Global Warming. Yes, you are correct, I’m talking about Al Gore. His professor said that he believed that fossil fuels were causing smog in LA! Gore turned that into “CO2 from fossil fuel is causing Global Warming”. When Professor Roger Revelle told Gore that what Gore is saying is not true, Gore said the Prof. was senile!
Global Warming is all about MONEY! The US gives the UN 5 billion a year to study “Climate Change”. The UN created the IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on “Climate Change”. The IPCC decided to grant all 5 billion to Colleges with PHD scientists, who had no jobs after 8 years of College and no money, to “study” Global Warming IF, and only IF they agreed that there IS Global Warming and they will try to PROVE it. That is the premise… very scientific!
So for 18 years they studied and made releases how the Earth is warming, Polar bears are dying because the Ice Caps and Glaciers are melting …all unchallenged until a few experts decided to check the RAW data. John Coleman, founder of the weather channel, and several members of the Heartland Institute looked at the IPCC temperature model which predicted temperatures and compared the predicted temperatures to the actual temperatures and found the model to be totally inaccurate. How bad? Al Gore predicted that based upon the model, the Arctic Ice Cap and Glaciers would be gone by 2015!!! In fact, the temperatures over the 18 ½ year period actually went DOWN 1degree Celsius!
How bad? Some Colleges put the Thermometers in fenced in areas (good) but on blacktop parking lots (very bad) !!! All temperatures were taken IN the US but the study is called Global Warming?
It gets even better…NASA completed a study in 2015 that says the IPCC study is useless, not even close to accurate and their(NASA) study compared Antarctic Ice over a 10,000 year period and found the “land mass” ice to be thicker, larger and colder than ever before. Also, Satellite photos of the Arctic Ice cap prove that all the Arctic Ice that melted over a 10 year period regained all that was gone from 2012 to 2013 by regaining 1 million sq miles of new ice, in one year!! Coleman also did a study on Polar Bears and found that their population is greater now than since they started keeping records!
On 2-4 &5-17, the Daily Mail(a UK Paper) reported that John Bates a high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that “America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the UN climate conference in Paris in 2015”.
WHY? It’s all about money. Saudi Arabia sells the US oil, why wouldn’t they want to lobby against US oil production? I would feel very safe saying that ANY politician who says there is Global Warming is making LOTS of money from lobbyists or has some other scam working. For example, how much was Barack Obama paid to push for debunked/bankrupt Solyndra to receive grant money or maybe a “reward” besides the 1.5 million they donated to Obama’s campaign. What did he get from the $418,000 he gave them, 4 months before they filed for bankruptcy?
How about this…convince people that there is a fossil fuel scare and Solar is the only way to go. Push a new solar company as a great investment and tell your constituents it’s the energy of the future. Invest heavy and when you know it will crash, sell!
Like I said, it’s a scam, it’s not true, the facts prove there is NO GLOBAL WARMING AND SOME IDIOTS DON’T WANT TO BE CONFUSED BY THE FACTS!!!
