Re: E-M:/ Wisconsin Electric Energy Goes Green in the UP!

Enviro-Mich message from Doug Cornett <drcornet@up.net>

Alex:

You forgot the Presque Isle Power Plant in Marquette.  It was the 7th most
polluting power plant in MI and the Engler administration gave them a
"Clean Citizen" award!  

And don't forget the 80 mile long transmission line going from the
Marquette plant to WI.  No environmental assessments of any kind, they just
started bulldozing a several hundred ft. wide swath - across streams,
wetlands and through remote habitat.  This power line corridor, as well as
others, are drenched with herbicides on a regular basis to keep trees from
growing back.
