Talk about taking matters into your own hands! Seeing that there was no answer to the question, ‘How’s our environment doing?’, a nature-loving Gopher-stater took it upon himself to find out. His composite report, paid for with privately raised funds, shows development and population trends that threaten the green spaces the Land of 10,000 Lakes is famous for. One of the report’s findings that shouldn’t surprise anyone: state spending on environmental quality continues to decline under the current governor. Given how the state’s environmental agencies behave
, it’s no wonder a private citizen had to step in. St. Paul Pioneer Press reports
on the report.
