Reader feedback: Greens should identify 'mess'

Re: Green critics take aim at low state support, By Miroslav Karpaty, Vol 8, No 45, Nov 25 to Dec 1

There will be budgetary restraints for years to come [including in the Environment Ministry]. Arguing about the lack of funds will not solve the lack of them at present. So perhaps the Slovak Greens could spend their time identifying the 'old' mess and make a comprehensive list thereof while at the same time pointing out where environmental damage is currently being done. Perhaps something can be done about the latter while a plan can be made to clean up the 'old'.
