RUN, HIDE, YOU ARE ENTERING THE NO-WIN ZONE
No matter what you say the industry will denounce you for going to far and the
Greens will denounce you for not going far enough.

But, in reality, you can check with TVA for a copy of their exhaustively biased
study from 1990 and with the DEP of North Carolina who is also beginning a
review. Also check with the American Forests and Paper Association in Wash.DC. to
get the industry's perspective.

Good luck, you'll need it...
