  1. This spring think twice about using lawn Fertilizer and pesticides to make a nice green lawn. Think about what the golf courses are doing to our water.
    In addition to the tons of nitrogen used by golf courses, the average golf course uses over 300,000 gallons of water a day.

  2. Isn’t nitrogen 70% of the Earth’s atmosphere? Isn’t it also a vital part of plant growth and soil enrichment?

    As far as the oceans are concerned, the only real issue is the phytoplankton populations, which can easily be regrown with iron sulfate, and it’s worked spectacularly.
    Why is it that environmentalists always seem to be in favor of forcing societal regression instead of spurning new developments that allow us to not only keep our standard of living, but actually improve the environment they claim to want to protect?
    Plankton are also the world’s most vital oxygen producers and carbon dioxide consumers. If carbon dioxide is truly the problem, then this dilemma has already been solved.
    But why are environmental lobbyists against it when it does literally everything they claim to want?

    Probably because if the problem were fixed, they would all lose their jobs.
