O can tell you I have been a professional class a driver since<quoted text>One might be careful not to just parrot standard talking points and think about what they're saying. The vast majority of municipal and private water supplies draw from surface water and/or subsurface aquifers. In addition, those "distressed fish" are in the food chain, of which humans are a major consumer.
What's the big deal if we wipe out a few fish and frogs? Not much, on the surface, I guess. But these critters are like a "canary in a coal mine" - what affects them is affecting us. Why is cancer so much more prevalent than a century ago? Why are there so many respiratory afflictions nowadays, even among the young? People that yelp about "the sanctity of life" would do well to examine whether they're applying that rule consistently across the matrix of life, or just when the talking-point memo says jump.
There's a reason for most every odious "regulation" we hear bitched about. No doubt there are some seemingly silly ones as well. Can you name a couple?
December 1997. While I don't know the specific laws that must have changed in the last few years its getting unreasonable. Unlike the lies and smears that passes on your side of the aisle I don't wish to drink polluted water or kill school kids. That's just about the level of crap you just posted. And please don't tell me about the value of life Hip. I'm not going to turn this into a forum on it. A few weeks ago I was northbound on US 301 and witnessed a commercial truck and private car in a fender bender. I counted 7 Tampa pd and Fl state troopers that had all but one lane closed as they went over the truck no doubt looking for EPA violations. It's unreasonable and this overkill is quite recent.
