WASHINGTON, Mar. 16 – Statement of Gary Kalman, Federal Legislative Director of U.S. PIRG, in response to the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.
What we do with our stuff when we’re done with it is a huge problem. Here in Connecticut, almost 75% of our waste is buried or burned, a process that pollutes our environment and damages our health. But the great thing is that we know how to fix this problem! Go Zero Waste.
My respone to the release of President Obama’s FY12 budget.
