Bailey http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2009/09/epa-and-the-smithsonian/#comment-15231 Thu, 03 Sep 2009 06:26:21 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=1067#comment-15231 The collaboration with the Smithsonian and CDC will amount to a major step forward in understanding how natural processes respond to major climate change. It is also critical to cut water, air, and soil pollution to the maximum extent possible as soon as possible. Corporations always call doing this over regulation, micro management and say it cost too much to do it. They have been saying this since the first federal and state environmental laws were passed and their arguments just keep being recycled. The corporations have said and continue to say that global warming is nothing more than a hoax even as more and more scientific evidence comes in to say otherwise. They say it cost too much to reduce pollution. The truth is it cost too much not to cut pollution to the maximumextent possible as soon as possible. We also need to get away from the idea that if a woman asks for an abortion that means she has something wrong with her head. The idea that you should have as many babies as you can needs to change as the rate of population growth is outstripping the earth’s resources to keep up. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Laurie Garret’s book “The Coming Plague” is still relevant.
