Voluntary Pollution Controls


Good stuff for you from the NY Times. Bush holds press conference to talk about regulating pollutants. Tony Snow sez that a systematic approach (read: stall and delay) should be taken. Moreover, it should be voluntary.

''The market-based approach seems to work,'' Snow said. ''The question is: do you try to set up a mandatory system or do you try to set up an innovation-based system. The president prefers innovation.''


I like that... good word 'Innovation,' bad word 'MANDATORY.' Please see attached pix of Reliant Energy's innovative approach to pollution control in Elrama PA.
