Press Spin: Arsenic alarmism sounds again….in Maine

Arsenic, the go-to chemical to scare everyone.  Of course, private well owners must test their water and treat it to removed arsenic if found. It is a private well owners responsibility…..don’t wait for someone else (like EPA or state) to save you…..Click here….

National Research Council sea level rise report ignores science…..again?

From the tone of the report, the apparent intent of the report was to reinforce global warming alarm…..projecting rapidly rising seas…..for a more detailed critique, click here…..

Reports like this serve no real useful purpose, other than giving the authors something to do……and meet political needs to keep their funding…..the ranges projected are so large, and based on unverified models (again), that it takes great faith to believe them. And, of course, the alarm bell ringers always point to the highest (or higher) numbers….

Muskegon County (MI) ignores reality…..communities want self-determination on water

When given a choice, communities want control over their own destiny. That destiny is closely related to controlling their own water supply and treatment.

Despite the decade’s old effort of USEPA to force communities to overcome what they think are “football” rivalries…..communities across the land still prefer and will chose self-determination…..not forced consolidation.

This editorial get’s it exactly wrong (click here). Let communities large or small make their own choices.  The “failure of leadership” blame in situations like this is tossed out by statists who want to arm-twist and intimidate communities to be under the thumb of some other government body above them. If communities choose to consolidate water service, great. If not, leave them alone.

Sierra Club hires “crucify” strategy promoter……Life Members should protest

Hiring an ex-EPA official who is famous for a “crucify” industry strategy is hardly what is needed to begin moving forward with responsible environmental protection…..especially now.  Sierra club members should not put up with this continued radicalization…..it may make such like-minded activists feel good in the short term, but it is detrimental and destructive to their cause in the long term….click here for news article….
