I believe this will be the final straw, industrializing the Great Lakes. I don't know about the rest of you, but I am mad as hell and I am not going to take this sitting down anymore. Has the American public had enough of being pushed around by stupid politico's? Enough is enough, rise up and let your voice be heard. This makes no sense whatsoever...

There are several nuke plants on Lake Ontario alone. I think we missed the boat on getting a head start on not industrializing the Great Lkae region. I can't tell you how many brown fields dot the shoreline. It's pretty much bought and sold as long as jobs are at stake.

I agree wholeheartedly with Cape Lady. I have already contacted my state and local legislators and requested they vote down on this and another attempts to prostitute our natural resources. If President Kessel won't reconsider or back down, then replace him with a more environmentally friendly person. There should also be a public referendum an any issue such as this.
