Great Lakes environmental headlines, progressive commentary, good books.
A lot of gall for these Illinois and Chicago politicos to point their fingers at others when they won't even clean up their own act!Turns out Chicago doesn't disinfect its wastewater - there is a newly released report titled “Chicago Must Step Up Sewage Treatment; Stop Risking Public Health“ @ http://www.lakemichigan.org/news/071707.asp
Come on!! Just because Chicago has work to do too does not make it alright for BP to dump even more heavy metals and ammonia into our lake or that lawmakers cannot stand up for our lakes until everything in their jurisdiction is perfect.
Kudos to the folks that are taking initiative to stop the ongoing degradation of the precious lakes - we are waking up and overwhelmingly the majority of citizens are on board with whatever it takes to fix the problem, and to prevent at all costs it's worsening - there IS a point of no return, thankfully we are not going to let that happen. -friend of the great lakes
Every American should take their household garbage/trash to their local BP station and leave it by the gas pumps. If everyone did this once a week, we could transform BP into a waste management company so they could learn how we feel about lake Michigan and the Gulf of Mexico. The press would give it coverage and our crooked politicians may eventually see the light.
I like that idea of leaving the trash at BP stations ! Get as much press coverage as you can ! It's at least a statement. Then let's look for solutions and pressure our "leaders" (I know I know) to implement them N O W !
