Great! More poison in the environment for vanity and profits. It's the Utah
Great! Careful planning and regulation to allow appropriate use of our natural
resources to allow an economy that will accommodate the pursuit of happiness.
It's the Utah way.
Amen Nayajja. You are correct in what you had to say. I know a little about this
and it can and will work.I did it for 27 years in pipeline with oil and coal.
This will be great for Utah and its school's.
So? What's a little cyanide among friends?I'm sure there
are adequate EPA and other regulations that will keep it safe.Oh,
Wait! This is Utah where the EPA and regulations are the enemy.Oooooooops.
Years ago when I did my masters work in public health I did my thesis work on
public health hazards in the energy industry. I found that given the right safe
guards about any hazardous material can be used with little or no hazard to
public health. As a matter of fact some of the most hazardous materials (in the
general public eye) have less overall health hazards that some of want the
public considers are the "safer" alternatives.To this day I
work in occupational health/public health and monitor workers working with very
hazardous materials and the material they work with don't cause their
health deficits. It is their life style that endanger them.
I'm sure this solution will be 1k times better than Gold Hill's
previous lives, let's do this!
I thought we didn't want any regulations and were pledge to fight against
anymore !Yes there can be over regulation, but there can be under
regulation for certain things as well. Some things that once were considered
wekk regulated at one time may need modificatios because of new machines,
techniques or problems not envisioned just a few years before. Just think
texting while driving was not much of a problem a few years ago.
Pursuit of happiness. Interesting belief. There a many lakes and rivers in
Utah that exceed safe amounts of mercury and other poisonous elements making it
unsafe to eat fish or ducks harvested from those waters.Tell me, what is
it about gold that has anything to do with the pursuit of happiness? Didn't
the Nephites pursuit of "happiness" via gold lead to their downfall many
times over?The poison in the environment is completely for vanity and the
profits of just a few. It does nothing to improve society.
