A Good Economy Allows for Better Environmental Protections

By Larry Wilmarth

I own a business that depends on construction, surveying, engineering et al and therefore a good economy. I also operate a placer mine in the bush. This law would diminish my city businesses even worse than the present economy and there would be no recovery. It would also make my mining business difficult or impractical to operate. 

As Wally Hickel stated: The worst environment is one in which you cannot find a job. Poor economy = no money for anything extra including protecting the flora and fauna. In my travels the most polluted environment was in the poorest countries. Stop the green Aphid. It is defoliating our economic tree.
