All you really need to know about dioxin in Midland and the Tittabawassee River floodplain... right here in the Midland Daily News online!!! The Dioxin archive contains articles from December 9, 2004 - Dioxin research meeting tonight to February 24, 2006 - DEQ agrees with EPA dioxin plan concerns. No, it's not all the MDN articles but if you're a late-comer and want to know what all the fuss is about, this is a great opportunity to catch up on the facts.

From time to time the lonetree gang has criticized MDN - accusing them of reporting bias in favor of Dow Chemical. If you read these articles you will clearly see that is not the case.

On another matter, 'anonymous' left the following comment after reading the letter to editor of the Saginaw News:

'what does this hugh guy know? please. the people at the deq have degrees. they work with legit scientists from universities and the federal government. i wouldn't trust dow chemical to give me correct driving directions. and the line 'watch the pistons' is so ridiculous. i'm sure you and this guy think global warming needs more study, too.'

This comment is an example of the mentality of the average lonetree council member/supporter. Who lies, 'anonymous'? I'll tell you! I have been present when lies were told by Steve Chester (the MDEQ director), a physician from Saginaw who happens to be a lonetree council supporter, and assorted others from your 'experts'! When brought to their attention they refer to these lies as 'lapses of memory' or 'interpretation of meaning'. The dioxin archive clearly shows a relatively fair and balanced collection of articles. I'm not so sure you'll find this sort of honesty in any of the enviro-extremist papers or websites!

On the subject of global warming, I suggest you read State of Fear by Michael Chrichton. It's a novel based on fact... and unlike your enviro-extremist friends, Chrichton even provides references to where he attained the facts he uses in the novel.
