Recently, I wrote about the “Green Revolution” (which I called the Greed Revolution), and some not-commonly-published, negative side effects which that revolution may have had on food. I told of studies which indicate that hybrid corn may fall considerably short of the nutrient content of open pollinated (O.P.) corn. I speculated that one reason that botanists began hybridizing plants used for food was so that those plants would not need as many nutrients, of which our soils are deficient in forms available to plants. (That's why our soils are often called “depleted soils.” They're depleted of available nutrients.) In lieu of attempting to raise the quality of our soils to where that quality was when the Mayflower landed at Plymouth Rock, or, ideally, to attempt to bring them back to “Garden of Eden” levels of quality, if we could know the (Read More....)
Limiting emissions from your vehicle can help protect the environment as well as benefit your business. Most vehicle emissions release several poisonous gases into the atmosphere such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen hydroxide. These emissions are not only harmful to the environment, but also harmful to human beings.
Consequences of Vehicle Emissions
If you don't limit your vehicle emissions, it can affect the health of the general population around you. Vehicle emissions have been shown to cause respiratory problems (http://www.businesslink.gov.uk/bdotg/action/detail?itemId=1080531314&type=RESOURCES). Thus, limiting these emissions can help people around you breathe better. Businesses in particular should think about limiting vehicle emissions because if company vehicles release excessive emissions, they could contribute to workers getting sick and being unable to work.
Vehicle emissions also have consequences for the environment. They harm the ozone layer, which can lead to some really bad (Read More....)
