Southern Illinoisan In 1970 there was Earth Day In 1974 there was the energy crisis Though conservation of re eources and concern for the quality of life are factors of both some people are afraid they wont mix People will care less about the environment because they care more about keeping warm and running their jelectric tooth brushes James Fralish said Fralisn is a member of the Southern Illinois chapter of the Audubon Society and an assist ant professor of forestry at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale Fralish sees a t serious set back to environmental c o n cerns over the next five years Others at the local state and national level share his anxiety In varying degrees In the years between Earth Day and energy crisis darkness the United States and many in dividual states Illinois was among the first passed pollu tion control legislation National environmental groups such as the Sierra Club and Audubon Society won court cases to halt offshore drilling and stripmin ing in places to hold up au thorization of the Alaska pipe line and to prevent other en vironmentally destructive types of progress Finger of Blame Now the nation suddenly finds it cannot get all the energy it wants and some point the finger of blame at the environ mental agencies and organiza tions Federal Environmental Pro tection Agency director Russell Train quoted in the Jan 2 Wall Street Journal said that there are those who have all along been lying in wait for some convenient and on the surface at least plausible pre text such as the energy crisis to leap out and cry Damm the environment full speed To Illinois pollution control au thorities the question of whe ther to damn the environment will come down to a decision on health Jacob Dumelle chairman of the Illinois Pollution Control Board told the Southern Illi noisan that he doesnt expect the state to lower pollution con trol standards unless theres a Hobsons choice between chok ing andfreezing Dumelle does not know what the federal government will do about nationwide relaxation of standards but he hopes it will not preempt state author ity Illinois has a variance pro cedure by which businesses and industries who feel they cannot meet the standards can apply to the PCB for a temporary relaxation in their individual case This individual judgment can allow leeway without en ENERGY dangering peoples health in areas where pollution poses an immediate hazard Dumelle said there have been j very few variances requests fil ed because of the fuel short age I have to assume from this that there isnt any great need hesaid One of the var iances granted was to the Gen eral Tire and Rubber plant Mt Vernon Few Variances Dumelle that the ener and Chicago Themajor concern of the agency is maintaining the ground it has gained over the last few years OConnor said If any federal or state stand ards are relaxed there must be a definite timetable set up to ensure thai we continue to move forward he said The private organizations that have concerned themselves with the environment over he years see additional problems The air and water standards gy crisis may have the healthy j may stand up but I think were effect of having people look at the purpose of the standards The basic decision is whether youre going to protect health or not he said The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency is preparing for that decision by amassing data about air pollution and health the EPAs Ron OConnor said The agency is conducting special monitoring of air pollu tion in East St Louis Feoria going to lose the battle on strip mining and on offshore drill ing Fralish said Not Concerned People who are not concern ed about the environment in government and big busi ness will use the flimsiest ex cuses to discredit objections to their activities he said Those who criticize the en vironmental groups for battling the transAlaska pipeline and some strip mining and offshore drilling fail to take the limita tion of resources into account he said Since resources are not endless it is better to start thinking about alternatives now than when we have looted all energy sources from the earth he said If there is longterm relaxation of standards there will be per lish Carbondale president o the Southern Illinois chapter said The national club will dis cuss the matter at their annual meeting Dennis Baird Carbondale of the Sierra Club Shawnee group said that the club has taken no official position on energy crisis problems except to op pose any longterm relaxation manent damage he said For i of the pollution laws example sulfur dioxide emisj He is afraid die clean air sions which occur when highact will be permanently gut sulfur Southern Illinois coal is ted in the panic over the fuel burned without scrubbing it shortage combine with moisture to form acidic rain which leech es he soil by removing nu trients essentialto plant grow th he said The pendulum will start swinging back toward the en vironment when the rush to pro duce energy causes some real fiascoes he said The official position of the Audubon Society has not yet been decided Kathy Fra But he said we have had our feet in the glue about fu ture energy supplies because the present alternative tc more use of fossil fuel is nuclear pow er We cant decide which is worse he said He said the club supports the great increase in research now being proposed at the federal level by Sen Henry Jackson DWashington and others ;
