Every year, half a million brave the border patrols to enter the U.S. illegally, "searching for the Gringo gold but also bringing the Latino gold."

Every year a million Mexicans gather in their capital to celebrate El Grito, the cry for independence. Following its progress, Carlos Fuentes crosses the Andes in the steps of Bolívar and San Martín. The liberators succeeded in throwing off the Spanish yoke, but they found it harder to establish a just society. For the gaucho there was the consolation of the open spaces, the mountains, and the plains. And for those crowding into the new cities like Buenos Aires, there was tango, a sad thought that can be danced.

Remedial actions taken to clean up hazardous waste sites for environmental restoration and potential reuse are often sources of diesel and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Many remediation systems, such as pump-and-treat (P & T), may operate for many years, demanding electricity from fossil-fuel powered utilities. Heavy-duty equipment used in construction during site remediation are usually diesel powered. Opportunities to lessen these emissions exist through innovative approaches and new technologies.
