I won't get in a pissing match, so do some searches on the web for the Rathrum aquifer. Our lowly trains are harmless?? If you have ever dumped waste oil, or antifreeze, or an old tire into a waste system, you are as guilty as anyone else. When you changed the belts on your car and drained the freon out of the air conditioning to make it easier, did you use a recovery unit? Point your finger in the mirror. I have done some of those things, but I don't do them now, and I certainly won't standby while industry does it. I own a three thousand dollar solvent recovery system, not because I have to, but because I think it's the right thing to do, can you say the same thing? I have a nephew that lives in Portland, Oregon. He's Eco conscious to the point he doesn't own a car and uses my old racing bike for transportation. He is now concerned that he won't have a home when the pollution reaches the Columbia. Can't blame him. He is a cook and makes sure everything from the restaurant that can be recycled is recycled. I use less than $40 per month in electricity and would like it to be less, because I don't like the way my local electricity is generated. I'm not a torch carrying radical environmentalist. I just believe we need to be honest about what we do and what we are strapping on the backs of our off-spring for a very few creature comforts. Simply put, my family for 50 years celebrated Memorial Day with flags, "sparklers" and good friendship. We had a picnic and cooked hamburgers and hotdogs (home made sausauge) on a wood fired stove in my Granddad's back yard. He built the stove, cooked the beans, carrots, cabbage, potatoes grown by family on their farms and of course had fresh corn and watermelon. It was special when my Uncle brought pinion charcoal and bask cured ham for a special smoked treat. It all came for the land and the pine nuts were great when freshly roasted. I even remember some sage hen, and Western flyway duck. So now I look back and ask, What is my legacy?"
