This is what the environmental lobby in Washington manages to do with our tax money - they have their lackies in congress and the EPA use it to bribe cohorts and the naive.
If Rick Snyder is one of them, he should go. If he is just being fooled without knowing what he's playing into ...he should go. The staples of "Gang Green" are sold through soft sounding projects that will appeal to everyone: "Who doesn't want clean water, clean air and greenbelt bike paths?"
Ask again: "Who wants to give up freedom to look at special landscapes they can't touch?"
If you look at the individual projects, you’ll see that the bulk of the money seems to be going to city parks and bike paths etc. Its an interesting use of natural resources “trust fund” money.
