You ALL may be surprised by the level of concern teenagers, young people and the citizens of this great nation truly have for their environments. Assuming exausted, time constrained (and gas poor) working people have leisure moments to spend becoming “AWARE of their environments” by visiting the sight of a EPA clean-up is a gross oversight of their daily worlds and abilities. Do not insult the poor by assuming that they have no interest in their environments because they CANNOT always actively participate in an awareness opportunity: perhaps it is more a lack of bravery. Reality television is truly a viable option if any of you at our EPA (someone, anyone) are energetic, willing and able to pursue this commercial connection for Millions of Americans. Awareness could be instantaneous.

It never fails to astonish me how people hike some 15 to 50 KMs sometimes to sit and have lunch, to leave the evidence just where they sat.

Sad — Keep up your work —
