    Hi Scott. Since so much of what we’re up against is what Corporate America wants, I thought you’d enjoy this idea I had for giving their power a nice kick in the teeth, while helping the people of Flint. Ready? Here’s what I mean. “We must allow corporations to pollute”, so we have been told, because the thinking has been that if we don’t, they will move away and take jobs with them. Really? ALL of the managers and CEOs AND their families will up and move to Canada? Mexico? Or even some third world country just for the privilege to continue polluting because NOT polluting is too far beneath their √©lite blue-blooded sensibilities to even consider? And this WON’T open the door for some more responsible company to set up business locally? They will all move away? Even the oil and mining companies? How does one frack for oil in Oklahoma or mine in North Dakota without being in Oklahoma or North Dakota exactly? (I’m still trying to wrap my head around that one).
    So, with that one excuse that it would harm the economy gone, what would the secondary argument be for allowing this to continue? Now that we see that any company that DID leave would simply be replaced by one that followed these new clean-up rules, what other argument could there possibly to justify allowing any more corporate wastes or emissions into the atmosphere? Especially as we know that they have the money to pay for ii, but only spend it elsewhere, http://allaregreen.us/.
    So, if we were to start a movement strictly against corporate polluting, how could it be stopped?
