NS&S. Thank you for taking action! This is like having no regulations at all.

Thanks, Cher!
The whole SSM loophole aka pollution black hole must the be blocked. It is criminal, what they are doing by allowing so much toxic pollution and not only causing health problems to humans, but also polluting near by wilderness areas threatening the lives of the wildlife and all plants, especially those that would otherwise be suitable for human consumption.
Finland is a small country, but we have much better situation here with possible polluters than you. We have been able to block all loopholes - or almost all - by legislation, and since we signed the Kyoto Protocol, we have been even more particular about what pollution is where and how does it affect the immediate area. One disaster we could not stop, and that as the Talvivaara mine and its waste pools that erupted because of low standard materials and poor workmanship. The mine may have polluted already half of our country, and the waste water included uranium and other heavy metals toxic in small quantities for humans, and even more toxic to animals and fish and insects. The soil is lost and need decades to recover. As you can see, we have had our fair share of toxic pollution and just last year, and all that just because the management of the mining company wanted to save money and they did also hold back some environmental information that would have stopped the whole mine opening. We have a habit in the country to do things well, and the Talvivaara mining company did pollute such large area of our beautiful rivers, lakes and immediate are protected forests and fields... It still could kill all the salmon related and other fish from eastern rivers and lakes, destroy lake shore and riverbed vegetations ... I can relate to your concern quite well. But lets hope for the best tfor both countries.

Thank you for submitting your official comment to the EPA. You've put communities like Detroit's 48217 one step closer to real protections against toxins in their air and water.
