Migration Worldwide President John F. Kennedy, A Nation of Immigrants There is, of course, a legitimate argument for some limitation upon immigration. We no longer need settlers for virgin lands, and our economy is expanding more slowly than in the nineteenth and early twentieth century.
It covers on many of the things that most concern me. I find it interesting that many of our societies most pressing issues are rarely discussed or seriously debated on mainstream media. What is the actual carrying capacity of California in regards to water?
What is the LD50 temperature for people without a working air conditioner in the southern states? So if you have a dry sauna or a wet sauna death would come more quickly in the wet vs. Our average internal temperature is Having low blood pressure helps, too.
Most of our grandparents lived for a time without electricity and used kerosene lamps that you can still find in their homes as antique decoration. There can still be found in most towns the remnants of ice factories where ammonia was used to make ice blocks that were delivered to individual homes along with the milk.
The old diesel engines were quite tolerant of the fuel oil they burned. Yes, modern diesels are cleaner and more powerful but, if you factor in the losses from higher diesel fuel refining and the higher upfront energy investment in modern computer controlled diesel engines, we have already sunk a LOT more material and Energy Investment before the engine has even started and pulled its first load.
Consider the minimal extraction and processing to make coal usable. Consider the far lesser degree of engine manufacture required.
A coal steam truck, with far less upfront investment, might actually work for three years before the computer-controlled diesel has even cranked to life. With far fewer resources in a World Made By Hand, it would be good to develop such coal-fired steamers to move stuff.
There will have to be a compromise on abstract clean air metrics and what is needed to keep the nation alive. Life will have to be slowed down, scaled back, and the old bulk inventory system revived. Much higher levels of inventory will be necessary to compensate for long periods of not getting product in.
Just-In-Time supply will have to be outlawed. Log in to Reply lostinspace July 3, at Two points, diesel engines run REAL good on Nat gas and propane, they just need a added ignition system.
Caterpillar developed a ecm controlled ignition that injected a very small amount of diesel to ignite I believe propane probably 15 years ago or more. Cummins has offered a engine that has spark plugs.
I think a conversion to Nat gas would be possible nationwide, it would take a Federal government mandate and a countrywide filling station network.
How much gas we have and how long it will last is a different question. Second point, You can drive all along the west coast of California and up I to the Utah Idaho border on Nat gas only, right now.
I do not work where conversions are taking place so I am sure their are many other things going on. BUT… that can be compensated for by high compression ratios and turbocharging. Most propane conversions simply stick a propane carburetor onto a gasoline engine and without changing anything else.
The result is a gutless engine and high fuel consumption.
Most of these conversions lack a pressure regulator to compensate for engine temperature and ambient temperature. Again, lousy performance due to laziness and ignorance.
Diesel engines naturally have the high compression and the CR can be easily dropped with thick head gaskets. The drawback is that diesel engines are very heavy.Overview and regional information about the NAFTA Interstate project.

“My projections on the effects for the Rio Grande Valley is that our elected president, Donald Trump, will secure borders, reform immigration laws, [and] create jobs.” Further, Ruiz believes Trump will follow through on many other issues, many of which will affect produce suppliers, such as deregulation and lowering taxes for small businesses.
Lower Rio Grande Valley row crop growers have a chance to learn practical ways to maximize efficiency and productivity in furrow irrigated production at a half-day education program Oct. 16 in Weslaco.

First, education (or labor productivity) has slightly higher wage effects in the Border‐North region. Second, allowing for foreign capital and labor to respond to wages, returns to education have higher effects in South‐Center Mexico, the region with (average) lower education levels.
