Air pollution often originates in one state or country but causes health and crop damage in other areas. For example, mercury from Midwestern power plants is harming plants, water, and health in eastern states. How should states, or countries, negotiate the costs of controlling these pollutants?

    They cant do it. Take for example Eastern garbage, presently towed to...

    This is a federal responsibility. Can it be done fairly, with care for the environment? Probably not.

    Will it be done by the Federal Government? probably not (exactly where is radioactive waste being disposed of...?)

    I personally do not see anything but courts getting involved, and letting that costly system work it out.

    George Bush had stated in 2007 that this particular task would cost the government too much money! The only answer is, human population; only people can control this hazard event and the best way to do so, would be by cutting population in half; instead of tripling population, we need to stop it!
