Our Health Or Their Wealth

   The EPA is set to crack down
on polluters, with stronger rules
and regulation. Industry has
lobbied fast and furious against
this, with millions and millions
of dollars.
   It's as if they can't see the forest
for the trees. If only they could
spend that money on safe practices,
lives could be saved. Contaminating
our air, soil, and water spewing
such toxins as arsenic, benzene,
mercury, lead, and formaldehyde
is not good for us, animals, or
the planet. Many developments
exist to contain or capture spills,
leaks, flaring, venting etc. Here I
will mention, human error which
caused a nuclear shut-down in 
south Texas on Friday.
   Our grand children will not care
about deficits, if they can't 
breathe, eat, or have pure water.
BP overstated the job losses (in
industry) to maintain big profits,
and boost bottom line. We shouldn't
have to pay to clean up their mess,
or ours. Industry should be 
more responsible, more American.
