The future beckons

While all the media runs their look back at 2005 (Free Press here and Detroit News here) I prefer a future focus, one of the Green Party's Ten Key Values, this time of year. As the new year approaches here is something I won't be looking forward to, the opening of the hazardous waste site near I-94. The plant will treat up to 400,000 gallons of corrosive acids, heavy metals and other toxic chemicals, to be injected into 4500 feet deep wells. Right here in the middle of 20 percent of the worlds fresh water supply, the Great Lakes. Whoever came up with and authorized this travesty didn't look beyond the money to be made.
