From Treehugger :> I bet this is an issue you've never thought of- lead wheel weights, found on nearly all American tires, are a huge source of lead contamination. The weights are used to balance the wheel, 3.5 million pounds of it fall to the road. A new movement is forming to get the EPA to ban lead wheel weights.
From Alternet :> Milwaukee is considering selling the rights to their water supply to a corporation for the next 99 years. Baaaad move. Corporations should not control water.
From the Barf Blog :> The Canadian Plastic Industry Association (CPIA) says that we shouldn't use reusable bags because they are a health risk. The CPIA represents companies that make less money when people use more reusable bags, so why should we care what they have to say about this?
