December 1997, Volume 4, number 10
Remember the affluent Westchester County you refer to in the October Planet article about
waste being exported to poor areas of Alabama? We Lower Hudson Group members are just as
sensitive to sustainable growth issues and to handling our own waste without resorting to
exporting garbage. We have our own problems in this arena, especially since we are
situated within the New York City watershed where real estate development pressures are
threatening the quality of the region's water supply.
We would love to get together with [the Alabama group] to plan an overarching design
for sustainable growth that protects the environment for us all -- garbage exporters and
garbage importers. Together we could have four times the impact.
Receiving is Believing
There are a few vocal climatologists not in consensus with the great majority of
scientists who have come to the conclusion that there is global warming. Some in that
small number who [say] "There is no proof" or "Your electric bill will go
up" proudly list their credentials and connections to famous universities while
omitting their other large payroll connections to big coal and big oil. May truth find
them out. We have too much at stake.
