This Easy Fix is How You Stop Poisoning the Fish in the Gulf of Mexico

http://nationswell.com/saturated-buffer-stops-poisoning-of-marine-life/

A saturated buffer stops fertilizer from poisoning marine life.

The 6,475-square-mile “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico is so polluted that it can’t support the vital fish and shrimp populations. What's the cause? "The real cause is located 1,000 miles north: Iowa’s golden cornfields, whose runoff is dirtying the Mississippi River and its tributaries, says Dan Jaynes, a research soil scientist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Laboratory who’s studying ways to decrease the contamination."

"The fix comes at a reasonable cost: ranging from $3,000 to $5,000 and can be installed within a half hour..."

Canadian Company Turns Air Into Fuel

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/carbon-capture-fuel_us_577a177ae4b0a629c1aa7669?section=

Ok, this is REALLY cool! Regardless of your climate change beliefs, in terms of pollution - it's great. If we can suck excess CO2 out of the atmosphere, what's to stop other companies from inventing ways to suck up other excess harmful pollutants from the air, sea or land?

"Scientists are sucking up carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere — and turning it into fuel. It’s capturing carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere for fuel that planes and trucks could one day use."

"There are about a half dozen companies worldwide tackling direct air capture technology, which Corless compared to very efficient trees sucking up carbon dioxide already emitted into the atmosphere. At least three of these firms are relying on so-called “air-to-fuels” to be their golden goose."

Though I believe Solar and wind to be viable aids to our increased power demands I believe we need to put more into cleaning the resources we are already using. Coal is an important part of that and of our usage and with the right scrubbers installed it can be just as clean as any other resource. We are also missing a huge opportunity with using land fills. So much can be recycled now and that that can not be could be burned for power. i believe Sweden has perfected this and we are missing a huge opportunity in this country. If for no other reason the many jobs it could create. The whole recycling of all goods is really a wasted opportunity. This should be urged and even possibly supplemented for a short period by federal and state governments. the amount of waste in a large city could if recycled and used for power could turn the tide on cheaper energy. Would it be cheap to start with with no but nothing ever is but in within a five year span I would say it would pay it's elf off. We it hasn't been done yet is simple power companies and those benefiting financially don't want it to because they loose control over the power if a city adopts this idea.
