The article goes into the current agreements between the United States and Canada about creating a fair border that we can exchange our trash when need be. Politically and amongst society there has been push back against Canada moving their trash into Michigan, yet there is still trash coming.
My argument with this is that it may not be a problem currently, and it may be beneficial to our economy for take this trash in. However, citing examples of countries in Southeast Asia, this trash adds up quickly. And with it comes more health concerns. I think this could become a larger problem in future years as trash builds up, and find it crucial that we keep the Great Lakes clean, while this puts that in jeopardy. Do you think there are any ways that Michigan can be incentivized to turn down this trash? Do you see this as a problem in a generation as well?
