    Is dog-poop compostable?

      NO!!!! some other animal waste is, but it must "age" before you can put it in your garden. Please research this further.

    Keep Hope Alive...They Haven't a clue about the Value of the EPA or NOAA. It's ludicrous Clean Coal ? Never possible, Like the belief Fracking is harmless.

    REALLY NEED AN INDICATOR THAT YOU'VE COMPLETED A QUIZ OR POINTS ITEM SO YOU DON'T FORGET AND REPEAT THEM SINCE YOU AREN'T SURE IF YOU'VE EARNED THE POINTS FOR A PARTICULAR ITEM OR NOT!!! KEEPING IT HIDDEN AND REDOING THEM IS MAKING ME WANT TO USE THE SITE MUCH LESS NOT MORE!!!!

      Think if there is a check mark on the article that means u have done it already!!
    • Ron O. 2 years ago
      Thanks for the reply. I see the check marks, but that HAS to be something new, i don't remember seeing it before, and it would be nice if it was displayed on the main category page so you don' t have to open every individual quiz or slideshow to see if you've done it already, but at least it's something as an indicator that you've already completed it, and if it is new, thankfully they finally did something to show that on the site.
