Glad to hear they are cleaning up "their" mess. They should feel the need to clean the whole matter not just half. Although I do wonder where are they discarding the pcb matter after they have removed it from the river/

GE had no choice in cleaning up the Hudson. They were made to do it by the government. They are also fighting the new government regulations for cleaner less polluting diesels train engines that they make in Erie, Pa.

Doesn't it kind of make you sick when you see their ECO friendly commercials on TV?
