E-M:/ Free Press editorial: CAFO rules and Dow deal

Enviro-Mich message from "Anne Woiwode" <anne.woiwode@sierraclub.org>


As we give thanks at this time of year, we should be thankful for a major,
statewide paper whose editorial page is often one of the few reservoirs of
common sense about environmental policy issues.  Here are two editorials
today, one regarding the concentrated animal feeding operations federal
rules and Michigan permit, and the other regarding the toxic precedent the
Dow deal (Dow-gate anyone?) could set.  AW

Toxic Potential

Abuse too likely with new rules for mega-farms

Cleanup deal with Dow would be pollution mess
