GE, Westinghouse, Allis-Chalmers and other manufacturers were granted permission by the U.S. government to dump PCBs into streams and rivers years and years ago. Why is this information left out of this screed against GE? The attack against corporate America is in full swing. GE will never get an "ok" from ANYONE. This project will never satisfy the enviros. "Paradise" will never occur, and GE will spend the next few decades fending off criticism. To use your analogy, "Mom" will be walking around the room pointing to specks of dust as evidence that GE didn't clean their room. Good luck GE. Get the hell out of NYS.

Hey Steven Williams. Why don't you include the fact that GE discharged PCB's with permission from NYS? This line from your article isn't fair: "They were discharged into the river from GE capacitor plants in Hudson Falls and Fort Edward between 1946 and 1977" without mentioning that salient bit of information. It's also important to expand upon the statement that PCB's are a "suspected" carcinogen, without mentioning that no study or facts support the claim that PCB's CAUSE cancer.

A picture is worth 1000 words? No customers at the natural gas station. How much of this, if any, exits due to tax credits? Is this another version of the solar panel "industry?"

Am I the only one who blames government for building bridges too low? I'm open to be corrected on my thoughts but that was my 1st reaction. Aren't the roads and bridges the responsibility of government? Shouldn't they be constructed with ALL vehicles in mind? Milton Friedman once said that the cause of 85% of the problems we experience in our day-to-day lives redound to bad government.

How about both systems? Maybe a little competition?

...but these same 18 year olds are mature enough to make the decision to get an abortion, to serve in the military, to hunt with rifles, to get a tatoo, to own a home, marry, sign contracts, own a credit card. My gosh! Think about it. They can VOTE FOR PRESIDENT! But God forbid we let them legally purchase tobacco and alcohol. I'm sick of the nanny state.

Uber. The one word answer to the question of raising rates for taxi cabs. If you've ever used this wonderful California tech invention, you'll never want to use a taxi again. It's cheaper and more convenient. You watch on your smart phone, in real time, as the driver makes his/her way towards you. You know the driver's name, license plate #, make/model of car, and precise arrival time. I've never waited more than 7-8 minutes for a ride and usually 3-4 minutes in metropolitan areas. No cash is exchanged. No tip necessary. Clean cars. And you rate your driver after the event. WHY DOESN'T NYS ALLOW UBER OR LYFT?

If only NYS would allow UBER into the area. We wouldn't be talking about getting permission from the "state" to raise (or lower) fares. It's ridiculous that we don't have UBER or LYFT. Travelers like me know about the efficacy of those dynamic forms of transportation.

Wouldn't it be nice to have as much attention paid to people who come to our country ILLEGALLY (no-I'm not against immigrants).
