    This reminds me of the line from Fresh Prince. "Ok, I'm going on this Save The Ozon Layer Celebrity Bus next saturday. We're going to take the bus all over town to protest air pollution, and then we're going to motor to the beach and have a big bonfire."

    Then Will Smith says, "I'm not an expert or anything but don't you think that driving a big old bus around town and then having a bonfire sort of adding to the problem pollution?

    Our political leaders, travel many miles by airplanes.

    Does anyone get concerned with the pollution these planes put out?

    So what do you propose happens to the Geneva Steel sight?
    I personally know the family of the farmer that was forced to sell off their farm to Geneva Steel.(Yes they are old men).
    Shouldn't they get their land back? At the below value price they were originally given for it.
    There are so few people in these pictures, it is hard to take these people serious.
    Please keep your big business, massive numbers of people and your protesters up along the Wasatch Front.
    In "Hicktown" we like to keep it clean.

    Keep up the good work, Erin!
    Then head south to Utah County to help put a stop to the development of the land that housed Geneva Steel in Orem.

    "Stericycle could not be reached for comment." Of course, but though they can run - they can't hide, at least not with Brockovich's team on this case.

    A lot of North Salt Lake citizens opposed the siting of Stericycle within their city, and some of industrial firms in the business park also opposed it, but in the end Stericycle won. I've often wondered what palms were greased in North Salt Lake city government. NSL's behavior is typical hicktown business influence developer politics. Finally now Stericycle's behavior is too much even for the city council to bear. But how many serious illnesses have been spawned by this disaster? This must become known.
