PCB cleanup in Hudson River   2 comments

Plans are in place to soon begin a massive clean up of the various pollutants in the Hudson River. This massive project is expected to cost over one billion dollars and take over five years to complete. While some residents have expressed their displeasure to being disturbed by the noise associated with the large scale cleanup operation, many understand the cause and expressed their support for the efforts. This year General Electric will remove over 350,000 pounds of sediment. However, some detractors have noted that this seems to be an inefficient solution because the causes of the underground PCB leaks have not been adequately addressed. More information can be found online at the Bennington Banner.

  1. Hi,

    It’s Kate from Opposing Views. I realize how busy you must be, so I’m just checking to see if you had a chance to consider my earlier email (pasted below for your convenience).

    Like you, I receive a large number of requests from web sites, most of which are spam. We publish content from hundreds of renowned expert individuals and groups. I hope you consider joining us…

    Hello, I’m Kate Wharmby Seldman, the Health Editor at Opposing Views (www.opposingviews.com).

    We’re a growing online news/information platform that publishes expert opinions, analysis, questions and answers from groups such as PETA, the NRDC, the NRA and Amnesty International. Each month hundreds of thousands of readers (and viewers, we also offer video) come to Opposing Views to learn about and discuss important issues.

    In an effort to build a significant health and cancer section, we’re reaching out to experts on the subject, and I thought LymphomActivist’s Blog would make a strong addition. If you’re interested and have the time, we’d like you to become an Opposing Views expert.

    What does being an expert mean? Essentially, you give us permission to publish content from your site through an RSS feed or by posting it directly on our site. Your content will reach an even wider audience and we include a byline and links to your site which enhance your position on Google and other search engines. In addition, the majority of our content is carried on Google news, Facebook, Twitter and other news and media sites.

    Please contact me with any comments and/or questions, and let me know if you’d like to join us.

  2. I haven’t heard back from you and wanted to reach out one last time. We’re actively building up our health section, and I believe that our audience would be interested in what you have to say.

    We’re not selling you (or anyone) anything, we’d simply like to publish your content.

    So please let me know if you have (or don’t have) an interest in becoming a contributor on Opposing Views.

    Thanks for your time and consideration.
