Helen Spiegelman wrote: Why should cities and towns pay for programs
that could and should be provided by the producers, as a form of
mandatory "extended warrantee"?
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in his speech at the Commonwealth Club remarked
"You show me pollution and I'll show you a subsidy. I'll show you
somebody who's cheating in the free market; somebody who's devised a
way, usually using political clout, to force the public to pay the costs
of production. If you don't believe that environmental injury is
deficit spending, look at the nations that didn't invest in the
environment in the 1970s the way we did in this country."
It's a good read for Earth Day!
