    EPA to county: Control your DUST!

    Really? Control the dust in a rural county? THIS is a prime example of why the EPA needs to be dissolved!

    EPA: Pinal County must lower dust level

    by Lindsey Collom - May. 23, 2012 10:04 PM

    After two years of warnings, Pinal County has been ordered to clean up its air.

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has declared that portions of western Pinal County are violating its coarse-dust standard, which limits the amount of PM-10, particles 10 micrometers or less in diameter, present in the air.

    So do they want some dust or wasting water on settling the dust? How else do you control dust? Plant stuff which takes away the earths nutrients, water which draws down much needed irrigation water needed in the desert, maybe cloud seeding to make it rain?

    crushed barton springs salamanders are very sticky -- they would work well

    I'm convinced we are heading for another dust bowl. So many farmers are taking down the few remaining shelterbelts for an extra row of corn, the CRP acreage #'s are dwindling...All we need is a good drought for a year or two and its going to be ugly.

    Just for clarification, do you know what caused the dust bowl and why it pretty much cannot happen today?

    Maybe we can start paying people to pee on the dust?

    Monsters. We killed them all, although I think some of their kin still live in Canada.
