apologies for bashed mail message
My mailer (MS Outlook Express) has really made a
mess of a couple of mail messages I sent, and I
want to apologize and resend a little summary
of what they said.
I think we need to stop wasting time on whether
individuals in the agencies are good people or not.
This does matter in the little picture - we need to always
assume that lower-level people in the DEPs and EPA
are good folks who really want to help us.
But the big picture reveals that they cannot help us
to make institutional changes, and the EPA and DEPs
are - by policy - decreasing their commitment to
environmental protection and finding loopholes in
the laws and advising their industrial "clients" to
drive trucks through them.
We need to have an alternative strategy that will
make institutional changes. Any thoughts will be
gratefully received. I have some thoughts of my own
which I will share later.
I also posed a quiz: why hasn't the EPA released
the 1994 reassessment. (I think they *can't* release it...)
Any of 4-5 reasons will do. No conspiracy theory is
needed, although suggestions along these lines
are always fascinating...
