Can we reduce this to Tarzan logic? Steel good. Oil bad. Ever notice that all those steel mills sat hard on the banks of every river in this region and dumped stuff in them for nearly a century. As I kid, I used to sit in a Baden department store and watch carloads full of hot slag dumped in the Ohio. Sure people were earning big bucks...but what were the folks downstream drinking?

I might have missed a core beliefs on this blog somewhere but what exactly is the new industrialism -- and how does it help people and economies without harming the environment and people? I'm not being snarky. Just curious.
