But, the environmentalists supported the Clean Water Act of 1972, and it's 1977 and 1977 amendments. If you have noticed the nations rivers and streams are significantly cleaner than the were in the 1960's. Are you saying those environmentalists were wrong? Are you saying that the environmentalists supporting cleaning up the last century of coal mine drainage are wrong? You paint with too wide a brush.
No, what I'm saying is this new breed of environmentalism is just plain ridiculous. I can't buy a normal gas can anymore. I can't buy a 2-stroke dirt bike anymore (new at least). If my car or truck has a bad converter, I have to spend $500 for a new one, when the vehicle runs & drive perfectly fine! (This is just killing the normal working class people with older vehicles) We are all about to have our utilities skyrocket all in the name of 'saving the earth', during a recession.
Clean water is good, BUT this is ridiculous!!!
The air is a lot cleaner too.
...and yet I still have asthma.
