Go to any new park and the ground is covered with ground tires instead of wood chips.

Here is (maybe) a simple one for you all to figure out. What about the broken bones of the players (your kids) from playing on a hard rocky surface? You know the one surrounded by the asphalt running track (made from petroleum), and right next to the 1200 space parking lot where all your leaking Volvo's are parked. How about testing the run off water from those places.
Let's not get into all the fertilizer and weed control products that are dumped onto that rock hard surface too. You know the one where your kids are getting their faces ground into a couple of times each game.
I could keep going but you don't want to know the facts. More tests have been done about this subject than I can count, and all by pretty impressive folks. But' you will not Google the subject in a good sense because you are "Pathetic, Uninformed Tree Huggers!"...Denny
