Every time I read or hear "an" REC, it's like fingernails on a chalkboard, if anyone is old enough to remember chalkboards. The "R" has always been a consonant as far as I can remember. You can't buy an "R" on Wheel of Fortune.
Here's the grammar school refresher:
I have been asked by a client to provide 'conclusions' relative to additional work necessary or recommended in an ASTM 1528-06 transaction screen.� I am wondering whether other consultants provide such when they do these.� To me, this amounts to an unacceptable extendion of�my liability for deciding on whether to do a phase I ESA� when that is the User's responsibility.��ASTM 1528-06 seems to clearly support this position.�
The Economist, 6/3/11, "Environmentalism Under Fire Soaring Emissions".
No doubt this topic is highly charged and one worth discussing. There have been several EPA / legislatively charged topics lately. Not the least was a recent push back for state's rights over the federal EPA.
Definitely a good summary to the topics at hand at the end of this article:
"In short, both the Democrats and the Republicans think they have found a winning theme in the other party's environmental policies. Any they may both, in fact, be right. Most polling suggests that the environment is not a critical issue in the eyes of many voters. But talking about it is a great way to fire up activists and donors on both sides."
Does anyone know what the Sanborn designation "Fancy" means? It's on a 1885 Sanborn Map. Based on the operations currently and historically conducted in the building, it's likely a clothing store or eatery.
I stole the title from "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me."
What did you think about the republicans' boycott of the senate Environmental and Public Works Committee?
WSJ (2/13/10) "Even Boulder Finds It Isn't Easy Going Green." Boulder, CO is a "place where residents tend to be politically liberal and passionate about the great outdoors." However, researchers and "implementers" of the 'energy efficient' measures of the city alike have "found it's exceedingly difficult to get them [City of Boulder residents] to do much of anything."
Resident George Karakehian considers himself quite green: drives a hybrid, recycles, uses energy efficient light bulbs. But he refuses to shut his door to his downtown art gallery when his heating and air conditioning is on.
"Mr. Karakehian knows he wasting energy. He doesn't care." ... so there is limits to being green for even the most "conscientious" green-thinkers ....
Of course, the column ignores the fact that warmer temperatures allow the atmosphere to hold more water vapor.....
