Mr. Ashworth lives in Ashland, Oregon, and in 1982 received the first annual Award for Outstanding Achievement from the Oregon chapter of the Sierra Club.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

The fact is that the Great lakes as a whole-not just Erie, but including it-are in far worse condition now than they were in the 1960's. The damage to them has reached crisis proportions; it is compounding annually; it may be irreversible; yet still the politicians congratulate themselves for building their little sewage treatment plants and saving the Lakes, and still the signboards.
