Environmental pollutants are poisoning us and impacting our health. The primary factor in considering environmental projects cannot be financial gain but rather a focus on the short-term and longer-term consequences and to avoid a negative impact on our health. Stronger enforcement measures need to be developed to protect our health and the environment. Natural resources must be protected and tapped in a way that creates jobs without undercutting their renewable potential. Loopholes of the type that are created through policies such as Pollution Tax Credits should be closed.
