However, our biggest concern is the lack of investment in this sector.

There is still along way to go yet, but alot of positive change has taken place. One thing that needs serious attention paid to it is nitrate contamination of drinking water wells in the San Joaquin Valley and how and how long to clean that up. We also have a problem in California with wealthy Texas based oil companies trying to overturn California’s landmark greenhouse gas emissions regulations at the ballot box on November 2ed because these regulations would reduce some the already huge profits of the oil companies. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Although the hopes of establishing a zero-waste society are greatly wanted, I believe it will still take a vast amount of time to actually come close to even taking a step into that direction. The good thing is that we still have programs that are designed to make people aware of the status of our society and the pollution each person contributes to this world. If we stay on this track and encourage many others to be aware of their actions towards this world, we may be able to cut down on the time it takes to actually establish a world where pollution and waste are a thing of the past.

Businesses seem to be the biggest polluters…I had a small operation, but one of the ‘feel good’ things about moving my Arch Support Business online was the fact that it no longer makes nearly the environmental footprint it used to!
