but not because it has anything to do with actual conservative ideology.
Actually, there are those in the Republican party who view environmentalism as a New Age, satanic cult. They equate it to a worship of Mother Earth, and therefore view it as inherently evil and unGodly.
either it is sent to a landfill to be used as cover
As less and less waste goes to landfill, there will be correspondingly less need for sources of 'cover'. This new process can provide an alternative use for all that sludge.
it goes through additional sterilization and is used as fertilizer on farms or is sold as fertilizer at retail.
Then in this sense the new process is neutral as regards the energy required to sterilise the sludge. If it's used as a fuel source, it doesn't need to be made sterile. Plus, many, many people have problems with the use of sewage sludge on their fruits and veggies. Besides the diseases, another problem is that sludge contains the byproducts of all the pharmaceuticals that get defecated or poured down the pipes. These drugs and their metabolites have unknown effects on the crops themselves. That problem goes away, as well.
yet all that meddling has led to a society where many black families are even worse off than if government had not first enabled and then "reformed" all that racism in the first place.
Blame the Nixon-era War on Drugs for the destruction of black family life. By incarcerating large swathes of young black men and forcing mothers to be sole income earners, black children grow up impoverished and lacking a paternal influence in their lives. They grow up to repeat the vicious cycle. No single thing has done more to erase decades of minorities' economic and social progress than the WoD. It's the new Jim Crow.
they do not want the party high jacked by a disguised 3rd party candidate
All the more reason for structural reform or abolition of the Electoral College to give alternative parties an actual chance of winning an election. The two-party system is clearly a failure and mostly produces bland, lowest-common-denominator candidates. Until we have more choice, our elections will continue to be a choice between a douche and a turd.
Why do you live 50 miles from your workplace?
Uhhh...perhaps the cost of housing near his job is prohibitive? If he works in the heart of San Francisco, he might not be able to afford a place there; 50 miles out, the housing gets cheaper. Think, McFly, think!
