Perspective for your consideration …What does it look like when it’s fixed…?
MINES DON’T AGREE …WOW …THAT’S A SURPRISE….?
Group urges valley fever, mining study…by Jeffrey Javier – Sept. 16, 2008 12:00 AM…excerpt…The Arizona Republic …Pleas from northwest Valley residents have narrowly persuaded the Maricopa County Mining District Recommendation Committee to pass a motion recommending a study of whether mining operations have contributed to valley- fever cases near the Agua Fria River bed. …All the mining-industry members of the panel voted against the recommendation, referring to the Arizona Department of Health Services’ position that mining isn’t associated with the respiratory illness.
IT will be fixed when all of us making a profit from whatever our endeavors are take full accountability and responsibility for all the “externalities” associated with our choices.
The mining operations, in this case the sand and gravel and concrete producers in the area are not evil. They are simply – greedy. That their lobbyists, attorneys, PR and front men would vote to exclude them as being liable or contributing to valley-fever is quite understandable. After all if the mines were liable or contributory to the cause or spread of valley-fever it could significantly reduce their master’s profit – $$$ – the paramount symbol of the Midas era in which we live.
And let me be even a bit bolder, I am most willing to present and discuss any water issue before any audience in Arizona where open full disclosure and two way dialog is permitted.
