Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Kudos to you for an excellent quick summary [in Winter ’12 NR&E Back Page] on the benefits of our environmental regulations and the comparisons with China. As a first generation environmental service industry practitioner I remember life in 1970s and the struggles we had with industry to adopt first line containment of wastes using slurry trench walls and engineered bentonite liners for waste piles, lagoons and landfills. Oh, the criticism and outright rage we met from production level managers incapable of any empathy for the environmental cause as it impeded production, costs and profits.
