Trees May Pollute More than Cars
We have long been led to believe that the automobile and the power stations are the primary source of hydrocarbons and nitrous oxide pollutants in our atmosphere. On the other hand, the trees clean up the air. Now – surprise, surprise – the oak trees in California’s Sierra Nevada have been found to release hydrocarbons into the air!

Scientists have also discovered that Scotch pine trees in southern Finland emit nitrogen oxides. These oxides react with atmospheric hydrocarbons to make nitric acid, a component of acid rain. Nitrogen oxides can also help make ozone, the primary part of smog. This discovery was made accidentally as researchers investigated whether the trees used nitrogen from the air. As part of their research, they sealed living tree branches in plastic bags and measured the changes in the air inside the bags. They expected to see a decrease in the amount of nitrogen. To their ...

Yes. The presence of a living thing with ears is irrelevant, since you excluded the meaning of sound as involving the sense of hearing.

And certain inanimate objects can be affected by sound waves just as much as the ear. Surely you wouldn't suggest there is no sound if they are perturbed by a tree falling.

What does your question have to do with pollution?

so Neil, what you are saying then is that the tree fell in the forest and made a sound, even if you didn't hear it?

That depends on what definition of "sound" is meant. Since it is stipulated that "no one hears it," then the definition involving the function of the human ear is necessarily excluded; hence, the only reasonable sense is the energetic disturbance of a gas in the range of audible frequences. In which case, the answer is, "Yes."

This may seem ridiculously pedantic to some, but it is exactly what should be done in the exegesis of Scripture.

Perhaps the authors have indeed found some exceptions to the rule, & I should not have said "simply." But they offer no evidence regarding heavy-metal toxicity, which was the subject jpw brought up.

jpw, leaving that article's obvious political bias, hysterical tone, and faulty inferences aside, it is irrelevant to my post, for I never denied that DU is toxic.

The writer is alleging official indifference to contamination, which I do not deign to argue.

The internet says::-

"There is a lot of talk about the amounts of mercury and our 'toxic tipping point'. I thought it might be interesting to compare the amount of mercury in vaccines and the amount of mercury that occurs naturally in the human body.

For an 'average' person of 154 pounds, there is 6mg (miligrams) - or 6000 micrograms(µg)) of mercury occurring naturally in the body. So, roughly, a person of 25 pounds has 1mg (1000µg) of mercury. A healthy newborn weighs on average about 7.5 pounds which gives a mercury body burden of 303µg of mercury.

When we look at the FDA thimerosal content of vaccines currently mandated and add them all up we see that we get 239.2µg of mercury - way under what occurs naturally in the body of a healthy 7.5 pound newborn.

The maths is quite clear. There is more mercury existing naturally in our bodies - even those of a 7.5 pound newborn - than the combied total of every single thiomersal containing vaccine on the market."

if jpw were as well-educated as he expects other folks to be, he would not single out DU as a hazard since more mundane metals used in ammunition like tungsten & lead, if one is exposed to sufficient amounts, are also toxic to the body. Weapons are often like that.

Many American tank crewmen died in WW2 because they were denied tungsten-core HVAP ammunition, which was supplied only to Tank Destroyers.

Even water is toxic if consumed in sufficient quantity. Toxicity is simply a matter of dosage.

mercury in the animal or human body is pollution.

depleted uranium, as was used in Iraq is pollution to the human.

corexit is lethal to animals and humans as was poured out night after night across the gulf after the oil gusher.

these are the things that people should be looking at and talking about, because they are affecting the very lives of real people right now.

of course Bill Gates wants you worried about your breathe because he wants the world depopulated by billions, that's what I gathered from his presentations. How do you depopulate a world anyway?

gotta be able to think for yourselves, people. at the internet, while it is still here, you have the capability to research these things for yourselves. the tv will never tell you.

Well, now that CO2 is considered a "pollutant" greenies could just count the net pollutants produced by trees, since trees absorb C02, thus reducing their culpability as polluters.

I can still remember American comedians like the late Johnny Carson mocking the Reagan administration when they first announced this (that trees produce air pollution) back in the early 1980s.

Aaww surely this doesn't mean that Al Gore was wrong does it.
And does this mean that "Global Warbling" will have to be abandoned by the politicians and "Greens" and such.
What price the Kyoto Protocol now folks???
They will not abandon. They are true believers in the worship of creation. Very religious, they are.
