I would have to agree. It doesn't do the environmental community much good to have a Governor that just talks the talk .... Having spent years working with Theo Colborn at WWF, Rick Hind at Greenpeace, and others at NRDC, NWF and ED on endocrine disrupters and associated issues (including but not limited to dioxins) , I was really taken aback at Bonior's statement and felt it that it was a big red flag for me. It really highlights and illustrates Bonior's total lack of understanding of the issue. Further, it sends across an arrogant message that either they don't know what they are talking about and don't care as long as they can get a press release out or they think the public won't notice. Either way, its not very good. At least Granholm has shown a level and depth of understanding about the issues as evidenced both by her Reponses at the Michigan League of Conservation Voters Gubernatorial Forum and also in the Environmental platform released the other day. I just moved to Michigan after many years in Washington DC working in the environmental arena in a myriad of capacities. In addition to my work in the NGO community, I have been fortunate enough to work for people like Don Barry (former Asst. Sec. and now COO at the Wilderness Society) and Sec. Bruce Babbitt, who had an incredible grasp of the issues (regardless of whether you agree with their position on those issues) and I have to say that so far, Granholm's intelligence, level of understanding and ability to grasp issues has impressed me as much as anyone.
