Journal Sentinel Demands Action On Great Lakes Water Loss
The Journal Sentinel editorial board is correct in calling for quick action to fill and repair earlier dredging in a key Great Lakes waterway that has allowed untold billions of gallons of fresh water - - an estimated 2.25 billion daily - - to flow senselessly into the Atlantic Ocean.
It's another important voice added to others - - this blog included - - demanding more assertive action on the part of Wisconsin officials when it comes to protecting and preserving the Great Lakes.
This is a big issue in Canada, too, where politicians and groups are joining American counterparts looking for decisive, remedial action.
One alternative is to wait for the results of a proposed, three-year study, but the planning to launch the study isn't even completed, meaning there could be a delay of about five years before a plan to plug the drain in the Great Lakes.
Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle is chairman of the influential Council of Great Lakes governors, and could play a leadership role in fixing this hole in the Great Lakes, if he chose to do so.
The time for action is now.
