Plasco Energy Group's Zero Waste Technology


Plasco Energy Group is from canada that has been working on this plasma technology since the 80s. Their first plant has been in operation since 2007. Now I read that they are in talks with Salinas, California! Their plants takes municipal waste and turns it into energy and resources we can re-use.

Here is a graphic showing what is created from waste that would otherwise go to the "dump".



So glad to see a way to make use of things we cannot recycle such as old toothbrushes, plastic wrappers, etc.

USA Military Spending vs THE WORLD


Add up the money that all the other countries in the world spend on their military equals how much money we spend on our military. Note these numbers are from 2008, we just increased our military budget again this year. Balancing our budget would be easy if people demanded we spend less on our "defense" budget. Also we need to realize that this is no longer considered "defense", more like "offense", to keep USA #1 at all costs. This also explains why other countries can afford free health care.
