As a national survey shows more people than ever want to reduce the effects of global climate change, a Door County environmental activist says the contamination of well water is the biggest local issue. Wayne Kudick of Fish Creek says more can be done to curb climate change. He shares the major contributing factor to contaminated water systems in the area.
Kudick says the reduction of the carbon footprint is a better start. He cites impediments that are holding back progress is the federal government backing away from taking the lead worldwide and that people do not generally believe that climate change is real. Local efforts for the more efficient disposal of garbage and the decreased use of carbon-based fuels are a step in the right direction, according to Kudick.
