NYT editorial, “If G.E. doesn’t complete the environmental cleanup job it has skillfully begun, a remarkable opportunity will be squandered.”

It is time for the shareholders and customers of GE to speak out.

“This month the dredges and barges went to work again on the upper Hudson River to begin the sixth and last year of one of the largest and most expensive environmental cleanups in American history. The polluter, General Electric, has been digging up toxic PCB’s, polychlorinated biphenyls, that it dumped into the river, by the millions of pounds, decades ago. It plans to keep dredging through the fall, then pack up its machinery and walk away from the job.

But the job won’t be done.”

If G.E. doesn’t complete the environmental cleanup job it has skillfully begun, a remarkable opportunity will be squandered.
