Has Bush’s foreign policy weakened the US?

Question by Dastardly: Has Bush’s foreign policy weakened the US?
The military is tied up in Iraq, soldiers are forced into 2nd and 3rd tours. Ahmadinejad shows no sign of responding to any international pressure re nuclear development, North Korea has developed and tested nuclear missiles, Chavez comes to the UN and spouts off about Bush the devil.

What’s stopping these guys? They know we’re tied up. Aren’t the priorities out of whack?

Serious answers only please.
To leogirl;

Most soldiers want to go back? Got some proof for that? I didn’t think so.

Also, take a look at your calendar. Bush has been in office for six years now. Blaming N. Korea on Clinton? That’s kinda pathetic.

ATMOS Global Launches ATMOS-5D+ First-of-its-Kind ‘Sixth Sense’ Dust Impact Forecasting Platform for Mine Haul Road Dust Management and Dust Control

ATMOS Global Launches ATMOS-5D+ First-of-its-Kind ‘Sixth Sense’ Dust Impact Forecasting Platform for Mine Haul Road Dust Management and Dust Control











Dr Orestis Valianatos – Global President and Chief Executive Officer – ATMOS Global™


Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) July 03, 2012

ATMOS Global ™ (ATMOS Australia Pty Ltd – Elite Atmospheric Air Quality Modelling & Forecasting and Climate Change Research Consultants™) launches ATMOS-5D+ ™ world’s first Integrated 5D Global and Site Specific Dust Impact Forecasting and Management Platform for Mine Haul Road Dust Control ™ – a major breakthrough in environmental dust control and dust management in mining.

Growing attention to general environmental issues has stimulated the search for new approaches to dust management. In particular, the challenges associated with controlling haul road fugitive dust emissions have led regulatory agencies to examine these emissions in greater detail.

Dr Orestis Valianatos, the Global President and Chief Executive Officer of ATMOS Global, said that “responding to the scientific consensus that mine haul road dust emissions are considered to have a major contribution to the overall dust emissions from surface mining sites, ATMOS-5D+ ™ ‘sows seeds of change’ as a revolutionary concept that facilitates the enhanced understanding and control of these emissions. ATMOS-5D+ ™ marks the emergence of a new ‘sixth sense’ Dust Management 5.0 era by bridging the gap between the digital and physical world.”

“The robust, timely and comprehensive dust impact forecasting information generated daily for mining companies world-wide through ATMOS Global’s Centre for Global and Site Specific Dust Impact Forecasting, Management and Control™ using our advanced multi-component dust control and management systems, ATMOS-5D+ ™ and DustAlert+ ™ (world’s first Artificial Intelligence Multi-factor Multi-criteria Dust Impact Early Warning System ™), transforms the way mining companies deal with dust emissions associated with mine haul roads and helps them adapt to the global future of the regulatory environment in which they operate, as it changes,” he said.

ATMOS-5D+ ™ is the new dedicated version (for mine haul road dust control) of ATMOS Global’s innovative ATMOS-5D ™ – the first-of-its-kind risk-based dust management method used for a mining project nominated as a finalist (jointly with ATMOS Australia) for one of the most prestigious awards for environmental excellence in Australia. ATMOS-5D+ ™ and DustAlert+ ™ are complex multi-component systems that combine state-of-the-art meteorological and air quality forecasting concepts and apply mathematical and physical sciences proficiency to the task of delivering more than 25,000 highly specialized dust impact forecasts every year.

ATMOS-5D+ ™ is a multi-agent autonomous ground breaking Dust Management 5.0 technology that coordinates and supports the mission critical activities of distributed dust control agents by adapting to user expectations to help identify potential dust management problems and changes in the environment to solve practical dust management problems in a more effective way.

ATMOS-5D+ ™ sets guidelines for appropriate courses of fact-based dust management action leading to safer working conditions, reduced environmental consequences and higher productivity by offering mine operators an opportunity to anticipate, identify and decide before adverse dust impacts are predicted to happen (a few days in advance) what the response to these potential dust impacts will be.

ATMOS-5D+ ™ is a unique dust control and management platform that complements and enhances the efficiency of traditional dust management control practices.

Mining companies that are interested in applying our ATMOS-5D+ ™ platform, a fresh perspective on dust management, to better control mine haul road dust emissions are invited to contact our friendly ATMOS Global’s Air Quality and Climate Change Ambassadors ™ for further information and a confidential phone consultation by visiting our website.
