Beside ad-hominem attacks, Larry you do not really seem to be
contributing to the debate. the problem as I see it in the nevironmental
movement today is that there is a level of intollerance towards opposing
views. Mr Karigan-Winter seems to hold the position that if you do not
agree with him, then you are some sort of an immoral persopn. Nowhere
does he mention that in the United States we have a relative abundance of
land relative to people, and that the "crises" of disposal" is really a
crises in siting.

If we stick to the factual issues, and do not let emotions get in the
way, maybe we can develop a solution, rather than simply calling one
another names.
