Thanks for that link Ted, a very good read.

Crazy how bad it had become and encouraging to read about the improvements, it also re-enforces my belief that we need regulation that both encourages growth and protects our environment.


Rivers on fire, that is an era we do not need to return to.

I’m probably the only person on the side who has actually worked there.

That region was post apocalyptic when I first badged in.

We would laugh, because it was so toxic, not even a weed would grow.

We would watch the occasional weed reach up out of the cinders, only to wither and die.


I think Zug Island is very possibly the most contaminated place in North America.

Everyone that I worked with that spent any time there and long-term health consequences, and most of them are dead now.

Now we let other countries poison their citizens and destroy their rivers with iron smelting.

I actually found the process of converting iron ore into big slabs of steel fascinating. Watching them roll around on railroad cars as they cooled, or seeing the big furnaces tapped and decanted into vessels as they rolled around the complex, was pretty cool to me..

No matter how far it has come, it is still, and always will be, a dung pit under the control of the same political party for about a hundred years.

Dung pit or not, more stringent environmental protection laws appear to be having the desired affect.

This guy had the right idea....

Zug Island-- Great Lakes Steel Corp, National Steel and the GM owned McLouth Steel.. Peabody Coal Corp. Muhlenberg County KY-- just for "openers" on the great big table of environmental polluters, all in pursuit of the almighty dollar. And it will never end.. RWTF

Google Boat Harbour, Nova Scotia, Fox.

Textbook case of environmental racism and profit over people.

Today’s grim Detroit news. I’m sure tomorrow there will be something equally repulsive. There always is.

Good you are getting the hell out of the cesspool you call home, even if you have to play golf. Bet it feels just like you have to go to work on Monday when you are leaving.

Best,
Ted
