domestic and export pricing and ensure the cost levels of American commodities are affordable yet profitable. Carbon trading and the associated drain on the U.S. economy by foreign governments are unnecessary in this scheme, just as they were in Andrew Carnegie’s day. In this manner, industrial carbon is being excluded from atmospheric release, yet costs are covered and a new market for CO2 is created. Furthermore, many candidate co-production plants’ facilities teams are actively scouting new locations every day. The Carnegie model renders the strategy of heavy industrial re-location overseas by American manufacturers of the above-mentioned commodities not only uneconomic but foolish. The key to success is sharing know how by finding the right American industrial production venture partners. America won two world wars and recovered from them economically through this able and patriotic Scottish immigrant’s common-sense strategy. It remains for the American Coal Council™, the American Petroleum Institute™, the American Gas Association™, the American Society of Chemical Engineers™ and the American Iron and Steel Institute™ to forge a one-stop industrial mobilization team of financial analysts, co-product marketing experts, engineering consultants and industrial developers to build our nation anew. Whether or not anthropogenic global warming is real, the recycling of waste, if profitable, makes good economic sense for any enterprise. u
