Thank you Caro!!

carol. Excellent review. I get so depressed about the lack of long range vision. We'll just ignore the WI governor selling off Great Lakes assets somewhat illegally, to cater to Foxcomm and the constituents in Waukesha. The Great Lakes Compact was the only thing holding some of these cities back from grabbing all the water they can.

James Michigan DEQ just allowed Nestle to take 400 GPM from the Great lakes, up from 250GPM. all for a $200 per year license fee. so while Michigan yells and screams about "protecting the Great Lakes" its government gives away the resource for nearly nothing. and doesn't even get any jobs for it, or any environmental investment programs from Nestle. sadness. major sadness. and Trump's administration is just accelerating the destruction... ugh.

Michigan is also quite prominent in this book. Of course there is a mention of the Flint water crisis. Gov Snyder is a corporatist and a disaster...

James yep! Michigan can give away water to Nestle but can't get water to Flint or fix the damaged pipelines... more racism poorly disguised as policy decisions...

carol. Sigh. Thanks for taking the time to do such a nice review and help others understand the issues the book covers.

It's good to know that this book is willing to take on current manipulators and point out the value of the Great Lakes Compact
