“CLEAN UP LITTER and SAVE THE PLANET!” Proclaim Way to Happiness volunteers

The Way to Happiness volunteers after a cleanup of a Clearwater neighborhood.

Man has gotten up to the potential of destroying the planet. He must be pushed on up to the capability and actions of saving it.”

— L. Ron Hubbard

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, March 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Saturday and Sunday, March 23rd and 24th, The Way to Happiness (TWTH) Association Tampa Bay will be continuing their campaign to clean up litter and save the planet, neighborhood-by-neighborhood in Clearwater, Florida. Hundreds of volunteers have been participating in the group’s weekend cleanups to beautify neighborhoods throughout the city and starting with neighborhoods close to downtown Clearwater where the group has its headquarters. According to TWTH, removing litter, dirt and clutter from one’s area creates a clean and calm atmosphere where one feels happier and more peaceful.

“We really can’t stand by and not take action to clean up our neighborhoods, said Executive Director of The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay, Ms. Tanja Cranton. “Having a clean neighborhood also contributes to a safe city as Broken Window theorists have pointed out.” The Broken Window theory by James Q. Wilson and George Kelling uses a metaphor of a broken window for disorder within neighborhoods, linking disorder and incivility to subsequent occurrences of serious crime in the community.

The Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay educates communities that litter is not only harmful to the environment it can also carry diseases. Further, cigarette butts are America’s number 1 littered item, are extremely toxic and start fires if they are not put out and discarded properly. According to Keep America Beautiful, $11.5 billion are spent every year to clean up litter in the USA.

The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay’s Clean Neighborhoods Campaign is inspired by L. Ron Hubbard’s The Way to Happiness booklet, in which he says, "The idea that one has a share in the planet and that one can and should help care for it may seem very large and, to some, quite beyond reality. But today what happens on the other side of the world, even so far away, can affect what happens in your own home."

"There are many things one can do to help take care of the planet. They begin with the idea that one should. They progress with suggesting to others they should. Man has gotten up to the potential of destroying the planet. He must be pushed on up to the capability and actions of saving it. It is, after all, what we’re standing on. If others do not help safeguard and improve the environment, the way to happiness could have no roadbed to travel on at all."

To join the volunteer cleanup team visit The Way to Happiness center at33 N. Fort Harrison Ave, Clearwater FL 33755, open daily from 10am – 10pm, or call (727) 467 6961. The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay is sponsored by the Church of Scientology and is one of Church’s nine humanitarian outreach projects in the community.

The Way to Happiness

The Way to Happiness booklet, written by L. Ron Hubbard, is available in 115 languages, with some 115 million copies distributed in 186 nations. The campaign to distribute the book has been embraced by more than 257,000 groups and individuals. The booklet holds the Guinness World Record as the single most-translated nonreligious book and fills the moral vacuum in an increasingly materialistic society.

Ban the Bans!

The Florida Legislature already has banned cities and counties from regulating locally important issues, like smoking on public lands or banning plastic bags.

BOWLING GREEN, FL, USA, March 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Did you know it’s illegal for a city to prohibit smoking in a park or beach it owns, restrict fertilizer sales or even ban single-use plastic bags? And if proposed legislation passes, it will also be illegal for them to ban sunscreens that are lethal to coral reefs and wild-life impacting plastic straws.

It’s called pre-emption and it makes life much easier for the lobbyists in Tallahassee who only have to deal with 180 legislators rather than the thousands of city councilmen and county commissioners who are elected specifically to make the kind of decision that impacts their local communities.

This year’s legislative calendar includes regulations that call for studying the impact of plastic straws, currently banned in St. Petersburg, and overrides the legislation just passed in Key West to ban coral toxic sunscreen ingredients.

What it actually does is ban the ban on plastic straws until 2024 while they “study” the impact. If this law follows the example set by the legislature in 2008, when it required the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to look at the impact of single-use plastic bags, they may as well allow them forever. DEP submitted a report as required on Feb. 1, 2010 – nothing has changed since then.

Delay and defer is a common tactic today by legislators and lobbyists to prevent positive change…

The regulation written by Senator Travis Hutson (R-Palm Coast) on the 2019 bill “studying” plastic straws
is even more clear on sunscreen ingredients:

“Notwithstanding any other law or local ordinance to the contrary, the regulation of over-the-counter proprietary drugs and cosmetics is preempted to the state to be uniformly administered.”

“Uniformly administered” by the legislators in Tallahassee who are easier to influence than the city council members in Key West who see what oxybenzone and octinoxate are doing to their coral reefs – and where their local economy depends upon a healthy ecosystem.

Even if you consistently vote as a Republican, you have to question why the Florida Legislature is undermining one of its party’s most consistent platforms – leaving local government to local government – except for the fact that big business is playing its easiest hand.

The bill is still in committee, so now is the time to contact the people who will vote on whether it actually makes it to the full legislature. So far, it doesn’t have a matching House bill but you can follow its progress at https://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2019/00588.

In the meantime, please call the following senators to voice your opinion:
Senator Travis Hutson, (850) 487-5007
Senate Commerce & Tourism Committee Chair Senator Joe Gruters (R-Sarasota), (850) 487-5023
Senate Commerce & Tourism Committee Vice Chair Victor Torres (D-Kissimmee), (850) 487-5015

I’ve already called – their staff is waiting to hear what you think! (Please be polite, though, these people don’t make the rules, they just answer the phone and report to their bosses.)

China Issues Methanol Vehicle Promotion Policy

Methanol Vehicle Policy Issued by Eight Chinese ministries led by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT)

MI welcomes China's policy which marks a critical guidepost for countries around the world in the use methanol as a clean and affordable transportation fuel.”

— Gregory Dolan, CEO, Methanol Institute

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, March 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Yesterday, eight ministries of China’s central government led by the powerful Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), along with the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), Ministry of Public Security (MOPS), Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE, former Ministry of Environmental Protection), Ministry of Transportation (MOT), National Health Commission (NHC) and State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) issued a promotional policy paper – “Guidance of Developing Methanol Vehicles Applications in China” – (Available HERE) to deploy methanol fueled vehicles across China.

The methanol policy paper follows a six-year pilot program conducted by MIIT involving over 1,000 vehicles in 10 cities from 5 provinces to test and verify the technical issues associated with cars, trucks and buses operating on neat methanol or M100. The pilot fleet accumulated nearly 200 million kilometers of total mileage with 24,000 tons of methanol consumed. The pilot program included tests of vehicle fuel economy and emissions, along with the health of people in the working environment.

The policy paper encourages the broad commercial expansion of methanol-fueled vehicles in China from the central government with the following key policies:

Encourage Development of Manufacturing Capabilities of Methanol Fueled Vehicles, including passenger cars, commercial heavy-duty vehicles, off-road vehicles and machinery. Key and dedicated components for fuel injection, after treatment, filters and lubricant oil, corrosion resistant components. New technologies like methanol-electric hybrid vehicles, methanol range extended electric vehicles, and methanol fuel cell vehicles.

Promote Development of Production and Fueling Systems of Methanol Fuel, including methanol production feedstocks of low-quality coal, coal-bedded methane, coking gas, and exploring the production of renewable methanol from CO2. Fuel methanol should comply with National Standard of “Fuel Methanol for Motor Vehicles (GB/T23510-2009)” to ensure quality. Planning the expansion of methanol fueling stations according to local conditions along with related standards and guidelines.

Accelerate Development of Standards System, including methanol vehicles, engines, dedicated lubricant oils, and standard methanol fuel. Encourage international standards formulation and improve standards on methanol fuel and fueling system, including design and construction of methanol fueling stations, methanol fuel safe operation and additives of methanol fuel.

Encourage Promotion of Methanol Fueled Vehicles, accelerate deployment of M100 vehicles especially in regions of Shanxi, Shannxi, Guizhou and Gansu that have extensive methanol production resources and operational experiences. Encourage Methanol passenger cars in service and taxi fleets. Expand methanol commercial vehicles in municipal duty and logistics.

Execute Emission Standards Firmly, Methanol passenger cars should comply with China National 6 emission standard with methanol and formaldehyde emission limits of 2.5 mg/km respectively. Methanol heavy-duty vehicles should comply with China National 6 emission standard of heavy-duty diesel vehicles with methanol and formaldehyde emission limits of 20 mg/kwh respectively.

Other Promotional Measurements including to normalize methanol vehicle registration with no limitation. Research to include methanol vehicles into “Passenger car producer average fuel consumption and new energy vehicle credits, also called Double Credit Scheme.”

“As the global methanol industry trade association, the Methanol Institute (MI) has enjoyed a strong working relationship with China’s MIIT to facilitate the exchange of information regarding methanol vehicles,” said MI CEO Gregory Dolan. “The Chinese central government has announced that methanol fueled cars, trucks and buses are ready for commercial introduction. We welcome this policy which marks a critical guidepost for countries around the world in the use methanol as a clean and affordable transportation fuel.”

“Based on the characteristics of China's resource endowment and the development status of methanol vehicles, promoting the development of methanol vehicles is in line with China's national conditions, which is not only conducive to giving full play to China's coal resources advantages, promoting the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries, but also promoting the development of green recycling and diversifying energy source and to ensure national energy security.” as MIIT noted in policy explanation guidance issued today.

With this policy, Chinese customers can choose to purchase a methanol-fueled vehicle in the marketplace and register vehicles with no limitations. Within five years, the fleet of M100 vehicles in China could reach 50,000 cars, trucks and buses, consuming more than 500,000 metric tons of methanol (166 million gallons/628 million liters).

Chinese OEMs like Geely Auto, First Automobile Work (FAW), Yu Tong Bus, Sino-truck, etc. have produced a number of methanol vehicle models, 32 of which have been certified by MIIT. Geely Auto has been at the forefront of the commercial introduction of methanol cars, with methanol engine plants and methanol vehicle manufacturing bases in the cities of Jinzhong, Guiyang and Nanchong, with total production capacity of over 300,000 units per year.

Some Chinese local governments like Shanxi, Guizhou and Xi An City have announced local policies to promote their own methanol fleets including vehicle subsidies, less driving lane limits, and free public parking, etc. The foundation of such vehicle programs is China’s domestic methanol industry, as the world largest methanol producer and consumer, China consumed about 45 million tons of methanol in 2018 (15 billion gallons/57 billion liters), and more than 25% of this demand is in fuel applications.

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, March 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The global environmental consulting services market will grow from $31.9 billion in 2017 to $35.9 billion in 2021 at an annual rate of 3.02%. Growth will come from a growing focus on sustainable development, development of smart cities, global collaborations for environmental protection and increasing environmental regulation.

Growth of the global environmental consulting services market will be only equal to global GDP growth, however, because demand from China will grow at well below the country's GDP growth rate owing to slow growth in manufacturing activity there. In the USA carbon emissions and climate change regulations are being softened, hitting the environmental consultancy market growth.
