I’ve been having many discussions about the recent wildfires in California and how they pose environmental concerns after the initial threat has passed. The fallout from wildfires is immediate although much of the trouble continues when clean up starts. The cleanup can cause a whole set of concerns that can be dealt with using some simple solutions.

I’ve had calls with concerns about the exposure from residual contamination and the Inhalation of non-biological, solid contaminants after disasters and how they can be contained and controlled. Very often there are many hazardous materials...

They were...

How do you identify these coatings? To start off...

I arrived back into the country from international travels and spent a week in beautiful Ventura CA before getting back on the road for a drive through several states to Oklahoma. I planned on educating native Americans, the Cherokees on how to simply prevent exposure of lead based paint to the occupants of their housing.

Better than recycling waste is to not generate any. Full recycling of all waste – trash free is a tremendously important issue and a worthwhile goal. Some have gone completely 100% recycling of all their waste, such as the Danish island of Bornholm. They are setting an excellent example for the rest of us and proving that 100% recycling of all waste is not only possible but a very attainable goal. A better step to recycling though is...
