|Summary||Now that we've conducted a post-mortem of the election, we're back to the environmental series begun in show #S1100. Today's sessions, combative but full of substance, focus largely on Superfund, which Mr. Krupp glosses as "the statute that requires that the toxic waste dumps around the country be cleaned up, and it's funded by a tax on industry--the same industries that created the chemicals that ended up in these dumps." But he adds, before his adversaries can do it for him, "The law doesn't work well; it needs to be fixed." One sample: JCG: "I would say that more than half the money spent on Superfund has gone into the hands of lawyers, and I would say that if we abolished Superfund tomorrow we'd probably have a clean environment." WFB: "Or you could abolish lawyers." JCG: "Well, if we could do that we'd also have a cleaner environment."|
