Re: E-M:/ Wish to unsubscribe - deep-well injection

I have always been bothered by the short-sightedness of deep-well injection of toxic wastes. Eventually, this stuff will come back to haunt us, and that seems likely not to be detected until traceable problems arise.

It seems better to discourage production of the toxic wastes and to encourage better disposal methods, e.g, destruction for organic toxins.

I am retiring at the end of the month and this email address will be no more. You might want to delete it from your distribution list.

BTW, you people should seriously re-evaluate some of your notions.  Deep
well injection is a very viable and long-term sustainable means to
dispose of many industrial wastes.  Nothing has gone wrong at the EDS
facility in Romulus that routine maintenance in the surface facility
would not have prevented.  It is true that the previous management was
untrustworthy.
