Since this article, (2 Parts), speaks to a science based topic, I need to provide my readers with my topic related background.

I attended GMI, an Engineering College owned by General Motors 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. 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 Law Enforcement Agency, US Attorneys to be the Prosecutors and gave the States the ability to enforce EPA regulations.

I reluctantly “accepted” the offer (no choice), to establish the FBI Environmental Crimes Program for the Western District of NY, Buffalo to Rochester, 17 counties. 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, my home town, 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. Congress passed numerous Hazardous Waste laws with the main Laws 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 the EPA’s job then and probably does now!

We investigated illegal dumping of Hazardous waste and I drew up several Search Warrants and obtained some of the first Federal Convictions for Environmental Crimes in western NY and closed one Hazardous Waste Disposal Faculty. The most dangerous matter we worked was the West Valley, New York, Nuclear Waste Project! There were numerous allegations of illegal transport and disposal of highly active radiation waste at the site, so much so, that the then USA Dennis Vacco, AUSA Littlefield, my SAC and I met with the Chief Deputy Attorney General, in Washington DC. Dennis did a superb job leading the charge and convinced the AG to allow us to execute a Search Warrant on the Facility. This was the #1 case in the country at the time and 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 than required! They processed nuclear liquid into glass balls for safer disposal. The radiation in some enclosed areas was deadly and they had it completely contained and under control! Believe me we went in VERY tough, and VERY concerned for our own health as well as yours and were very happy that a very dangerous site was extremely safe/proper!!

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 EPA, 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 by supporting Worldwide Pollution worse than ours ever was !!!!!

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 follow the Constitution and put things back in order and allow Congress to make the laws, not regulatory Agencies. The States are well prepared to handle the job

CO2;
These are IRREFUTABLE FACTS ( that are easily verified), 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;
1. Carbon dioxide is essential for the production of food and oxygen!
2. 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!
3. Current CO2 concentrations in our atmosphere are about 340ppm!
4. Ideal CO2 for plant life and you is between 1000 to 2000ppm !
5. Plant life in the USA is currently “starving” for CO2 and CO2 emissions MUST be increased to at least 1000ppm!!!!
6. If you seal a green house with plant life inside, the CO2 concentration will diminish to almost zero and all plant life will die!
7. 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!
8. Scientists have no idea what impact CO2, produced by man, has on the Earth’s “climate change” except that it’s essential for life!
9. “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!

ENERGY;
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 are 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 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 plants to build the power plants! Then turn to our Grid and do the 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 Colorado Green River Reserve (oil shale) and after 3,000 test wells, according to government sources, it 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. 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 he did to the pipeline. Obama also did an underhanded deal with Canada to stop off shore drilling. People like Obama have agendas that are so radical that reasonable people have a hard time believing that anyone could possibly do things that incredibly STUPID! About 80% of our power is fossil fuel!! Obama wants to do away with fossil fuel and all CO2 emissions. That’s insane; we cannot exist without CO2 or electricity! If he did what he says, we could not possibly exist! The only person to benefit from Barack Obama’s Presidency was Obama, think about it! Did you? I sure didn’t!

ND went to zero unemployment and to an average income of $60,000 in 1 ½ years, because of the oil output from the Bakkan! Saudi Arabia then dropped the OPEC barrel price which caused the Bakkan to cut way back. Because of Saudi Arabia, unemployment is now climbing. The price of oil decreasing is good, the reason for it, Saudi Arabia, is NOT! Saudi Arabia must NOT control our economy!

Increased oil output, more fossil fuel Power Plants means better Health because of CO2, more jobs, better jobs, Energy Independence, and an America you can be proud of! Barack Obama’s SOLE allegiance is to Allah, NOT to you! Some day those of you who refuse to accept reality will be awaken from your deep sleep! Obama was and IS intent on destroying your Rule of Law, your Constitution and your freedom! Pull your head out of that dark place you have you head stuck and LISTEN instead of DENYING what Obama has and is saying and doing!

Not utilizing our resources, now that we have the knowledge and the Laws to protect our environment, borders on insanity and I don’t blame people like Putin and countries like China, Iran, and North Korea thinking we are weak, stupid and gullible. We put forth an image of a foolish people so we get what we ask for. I believe, now that we are NOT led by a fool with a personal agenda to be an Ayatollah, we will eventually regain the respect that, at least those of us who elected President Trump, deserve!.

My opinion and I’m sticking to it!!! Part II, Global Warming, next week!
