[ EPA ] Sets CO2 Standards for Power Plants and Oil Refineries

Power plants account for more than 2.3 billion tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year, more than any other industry.  Oil refineries clock in as the second largest source, with emissions equivalent to more than 200 million tons of carbon dioxide (mainly a mixture of carbon dioxide and methane).

    For the record I reserve my right to keep my real world friends and
    a bunch of the cute “I am spreading jelly on my navel, now” followers because I want to.

    There’s plenty of newsletters out there being run by your average person, a hobbyist
    who is passionate about a topic, that will happily accept a small payment in exchange
    for putting my advertisement in their Ezine. Now anytime he needs to concentrate he turns to his
    ‘Silence of Peace’ relaxation music and his more
    recently purchased ‘Silence of Heart’.

    There are actually lots of particulars like that to
    take into consideration. That may be a great point to bring up.
    I offer the ideas above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions just like
    the one you convey up where an important thing shall be working in trustworthy
    good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round things
    like that, however I’m positive that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.
    Both boys and girls feel the impression of just a second’s pleasure,
    for the rest of their lives.

    naturally like your web-site however you need to check the spelling on quite a
    few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it
    very troublesome to tell the truth then again I will definitely come
    back again.
