It is of interest to note that for the last three years I have been attempting to persuade the city to change from its accepted use of man made chemicals to those of the non-polluting (green) variety.I have large files of stats and information dating back 12 years from which I have mounted discussions as to the idea of serious care-taking of the earth and what it could or should produce.
Whether being political or concilatory, our mayor did instruct his mangers to purchase a product that would back up all the comments that Dr. Shiva made in changing directions.

It is not simple to change directions.
Perhaps now some of our elected leaders will pay attention to a modest one page White Paper I wrote that simply encouraged this change that has now evoked a rather large editorial.
