  1. Oil / pollutant Removal System

    Recently provisionally patented, my system uses human and mixed animal hair to remove pollutants from our nations rivers lakes and waterways. Essentially protecting the environment from ourselves and polluters like BP which would be held accountable for the exact amount spilled and not a fabricated guess. Thus giving the government a useful tool in the arsenal for environmental protection.

    • Grid-tied solar panels with battery backup for every rooftop

      American made solar panels, inverters, and batteries are among the best in the world. American worker installed solar arrays on rooftops would be long term sustainable and also help the economy and environment.

      • Price carbon emitions

        Pollutants emitted by US corporations are currently priced at $0. It cost them nothing to send massive by-products of production into the environment. If pollutants monitored and traded on an exchange, then they can be priced. If pollutants have a cost, then they there will be an incentive to reduce them.

        • Health and Environment

          We need to ban toxic chemicals that are hidden under the word fragrance. The toxic chemicals are hurting the unborn, young and old. Also these toxic chemicals in fragrance is causing toxic pollution by entering the air by dryer exhausts. I know I could save the government money because I am a disabled veteran and need 6 prescriptions because of fragrance. If I do not wear my chemical mask in a hotel I will cost the government more money for my sinus and upper respiratory infections. Even the autism network is adding fragrance to the list for pregnant women to…

          • how to fight wild fires

            What about the ides of using jet fighters and bombers to dump snow on burning wild fires. The planes could be loaded with snow in the planes and dropped like other supplies and aids unto the fires. The melting snow will also flood the areas and prevent further spread of the fires. The planes could scoop the ice, instead of fire retardants; after all water is one of the best antidotes to fight wild fires.

            • Sustainable Community Creation

              My idea is to set up several small communities that are completely self reliant and clean. Have the community where the houses within the area are all powered by wind, solar, or other not fossil fuel based energy source, all given electric cars, and room to grow all the food needed to sustain the community. Although the first few communities would need to be set up within the fuel capacity of the electric cars for members of the community to get to jobs, entertainment, and other needs. This idea would help bring visibility, and show the viability of green energy…

              • Climate change icon for all green initiatives

                Like Smokey The Bear was created to help preserve forests, we need an icon to represent all those would work to preserve the earth through understanding, education and participation. I created the "DO GOOD THINGS FOR HUGH MANATEE" as the new logo. Visit www.4hughmanatee.com to see my idea.
