Where eco-friendly should not tread

The military has developed a “green bullet”. The eco-friendly bullet has no lead, which is apparently a problem at military bases where lots of ordance is fired. The lead leaches into the ground and contaminates the ground water. However, the green bullets, composed of tungsten and nylon, are not as environmentally friendly as first thought.

“It’s frustrating,” Col. William FitzPatrick of the National Guard’s Environmental Readiness Center said Thursday. “You’re doing what you think are the right things. As science evolves, you wonder, ‘Am I in front of the curve, or behind?”‘

?? Isn’t doing the right thing limiting the number of bullets, period?
