E-M:/ Sound Science?



"Of course we want to protect the public health, but the financial implications are huge," Krecek said. "As a community, we want dioxin information based on sound science rather than soil samples. But there is no relation between 90 parts per trillion and health at this point."

.  To think that one community (Midland), one corporation (Dow) and their cadre of corporate lap dogs (Goschka, Moolenar, Camp, Stamas) could be so cavalier about the health of the people and the natural resources of Michigan is arrogant and goes beyond self serving. The call for "sound science" has produced no science to challenge the existing state standard of 90ppt. Indeed "sound science" is a smoke screen and non existent. The real science is political. Rally the residents blinded by their loyalty to Dow, give them a slogan, get a handful corporate coddled legislators to introduce legislation releasing Dow of liability, retain a couple of high profile Lansing lobbyists to lean on the Governor and the DEQ...................Public health, the law and the Great Lakes be damned.

AUSTIN, Texas -- "Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of today,"
-- Theodore Roosevelt
