Okay, you got me back. I don't want to get political, because that just places blame on someone or something. I want to see who is doing something
to help the environment.
Now that that's been said, lets talk about the environment. Take a look at this web site,
Now, don't give me any nonsense about how this is a government website and they're gonna tell us what we want to here.
The endangered species list is for the specific purpose of saving animals, i.e. the american bald eagle, the grizzly bear, the black bear, the
american wolf, the american buffalo, elks, just to name a few and god only knows how many smaller animals they protect.
Yes, species come off and new species go on the list. This is how we preseve said species.
Personally, I love nature, the outdoors, wildlife and animals. I am an avid camper, hiker, backpacker, fisherman. So much good has happened in the
last 20 years alone. There was a time that you could not eat fish out of a part of the delaware river valley. Now you can. Roscoe NY, which has
some of the greatest fly fishing in the northeast was also endagered, but no more. This is due to the clean up programs and the no dumping rules and
regulations put out by the government.
Between the EPA/DEP/GAME WARDENS and PETA - before you go fishing (in new york) you better have all the licenses your supposed to have and you better
not be taking any fish out of season. If you do you get fined.
I'm going to agree with you that at one time, 30 years ago, yeah, big business didn't care about the environment or protecting it.
But in todays age of alternate news sorces, and the internet - - companies can no longer afford not to care about the environment and there
surroundings. Do you know how much negative press they would recieve?
I.E. the movie Erin Brochovich - califoria power and light? was that the company? Do you know she has a website, and the law firm she works for --
that's what they do...They go after companies for polluting!!! This is only one area of law they practice.
I can't accept your statements that no one is doing anything. If you go to the other site I listed you'll see a lot more.
But, My point, there are people doing things. Legislation that is past - is being enforced. And by who? People like you and me. People who care.
You cannot stick your head in the sand or just complain that something has got to be done. You've got to get out there and do something.
In my community, we (my family) volunteer for the local greenbelt society that manages over 65 miles of nature trails. I have heard of other
volunteers reporting local gardners for dumping, guess what? They were fined, not only for dumping but a complete investigation into the company was
done and they were fined for other things as well, I don't remember all the particulars but, i'm gonna try to find the article.
