Jon M. Huntsman, you have missed the point. We have ongoing in the United States an environmental revolution that does not allow the development or our natural resources. You have moved 60 percent of your operations overseas to take advantage of cheap labor and relaxed environmental regulations.
Alan Greenspan pointed out to Congress that the cost savings by industry in technology have been offset by environmental opposition. The answer is simple. Industry in the United States can produce wonderful goods and services. What is lacking is the cooperation between environmentalists, industry, government and citizens.
We do not want to pollute our country, and we do not want to deprive our citizens of their right to use our natural resources. My experience with current government regulations is that they are counter productive to our goal of being self-sufficient without pollution.
