But, but, but, I thought we got to act with wanten disregard because we
couldn't possibly effect our environment.
Right, Phranc, and besides, who really needs clean water? Just think of all
that money being wasted on testing and junk like that? Cut our taxes and stop
the nonsense.Besides, brown water just might be a whole lot more
tasty than the clear stuff.
There is huge problem here! What does "poor biological health" mean?
Contaminates? I live in an area where there are a lot of heavy metals in the
soil, naturally occurring heavy metals; lead, silver, zinc, molybdenum and a
few others. For centuries before white men arrived these metals have been
naturally leaching into the rivers and streams and lakes by run off from the
watersheds. Ten years ago the EPA came in as wasted millions of taxpayer monies
to "clean up" the rivers. All they did was stir up naturally occurring
sentiment in rivers and streams bottoms by dredging and now the rivers and many
lakes have MORE heavy metals than before. I am not saying we should pollute but
come on people, nature pollutes too!
We need to get rid of the EPA and other socialistic environmental policies that
protect us and save lives.
