RE: [greenyes] Promoting good environmental practices > > >


As a taxpayer, I expect government to provide "feel good programs." How
else will I know what the government is doing anything with my money?
The feel good programs are the public programs - the only ones you hear
about.

As a "feel good program" employee - I like my job, I feel I add value
to my company and to the community. As for our storm drain program - it
gets people involved and helps them get hands on experience improving
the environment. If that's a waste of time and money - then I give my
thumbs up to waste my taxpayer contributed dollars to that "waste of
time."

That depends on where you live. I live near salt ponds, and we are
seeing a
huge problem with sea life dying due to "a little fertilizer and weed
killer" running off into the salt ponds.

EVERYONE...

Studies are a waste of $$$$$.

Ask the guy that lives 6 houses away from the storm water drain if he
cares.

The stenciling projects are "Feel Good Efforts" at best.

Go for the mercury and toxics.

A little fertilizer and weed killer are not the big problem.

It is time that COMMON SENSE not JOB SECURITY and WHEREE TO SPEND $$$$$
is
the driving factor in what to do/should be done.

I think the time to eliminate funding for FEEL GOOD government
positions in
the "bureaucracy of waste/recycling" has been long overdue.
