Why can't "WE THE PEOPLE" use eminent domain to end pollution? It is our government our state! The Government of "THE PEOPLE" by "THE PEOPLE" for "THE PEOPLE"!!! Correct??? Then eminent domain is ours to use as we see fit!
To use it to force the Implementation and use of green technology? Solar power, Wind Power, Hydrogen Power, Geo-Thermal. YES!!!
To end such things as Nuclear Power and the waste it produces. Nuclear waste is not used for anything, can not be recycled unless for a dirty bomb, and will always be a terrorist's wet dream as a target. This waste is just piling-up.
Use eminent domain to stop burning coal which beside releasing carbon pollution also releases mercury pollution, polluting our air land and water, poisoning our food chain.
To stop such practices as fracking, which is polluting/poisoning our ground water.
To deny the Canadian/Texas pipeline, which would further endanger our environment.
To end many forms of pollution and to force the growth of true green technologies and practices. TRUE GREEN not such things as bio-fuel, because bio-fuel is not truly green - IT POLLUTES - it does not matter that you can grow crops to sustain it. Crops should be used to feed the world not to continue polluting it.
