Why isn’t the US using this plane? They’ve known about it since 1994 Deliberate ineptitude The Russian-designed Ilyusian IL76 Water-Bomber plane has the capacity to carry 16,000 gallons of water, able to put out a fire the size of 10 football fields lined up end to end, in fifteen seconds.

We should kick the fossil fuel habit as soon as possible and we should go after known polluters with...Read More
