OK, you first and I will follow...promise
...are coming to a close RAPIDLY. Today's youth cannot understand them & nobody can trust them. EPA... rest in peace!
This administration's EPA is DANGERIOUS to us citizens.
now they are INTERFERING in our FOOD production, FARMS.
regulating DUST, are you friggen serious..
you people better WAKE THE HELL UP
Here is your only problem...the EPA has had particulate-dust pollution standards since 1987, AND...the EPA is NOT changing the regulations
Why are you right wingers so fucking stupid?
why are you so nasty?
what you posted is enough REASON to shut down the EPA. they are a bunch of IDIOTS and are now overstepping their positions with enacting OUTLANDISH regulations that is hurting JOBS and our COUNTRY. And this administations EPA is the WORST
Yea, this EPA has a lot of nerve. WHY the fuck are they trying to protect the environment? They should be protecting the polluters like the Bush EPA! So WHAT if the Clean Air Act prevents 230,000 deaths, 3.2 million lost school days, and 13 million lost work days a year. Those people will die anyway, why draw it out!
And the benefits of the Clean Air Act, including savings in medical expenses and increased worker productivity, are 30 times greater than its cost of implementation, and the benefits of regulation, more generally, also have been shown to exceed costs. Not inconsequentially, clean-air (and other) regulations also provide us with a cleaner, healthier natural environment.
Fucking Obama, how DARE he stop Republicans from thinning out the population and exterminate the low life common folks...
And yet, the most damaging assault on the environement in the last 20 years was instigated by the California Air Resources Board which forced MTBE into the gasoline as an oxygenate (to help clean the air) over the concerns of scientists state wide that said there would serious problems with the addative.
Your side ignored all the evidence and did it anyway. Now, thousands of water wells have been poisoned all over the state of CA, and untold billions in environmental damage were done. All in the name of clean air. Sound familiar?
After 10 years the destruction became so obvious that they could no longer sweep it under the rug and they were FORCED to rescind the regs. It looks like the Republican congress is making sure that something equally moronic doesn't occur nationwide.
It seems that if you truly cared about the environment you would actually learn about it. Instead you and your ilk, scream, panic, and pass legislation that does more harm then the problem you were trying to fix.
Then when the damage is pointed out to you you say "well our intentions were good" and you think all should be forgiven. Guess what, you're not 5 years old anymore. You have to take responsibility for you actions.
Why am I not surprised that greenies who would obfuscate important climate information to tap into government funding all over the world would proffer an additive that poisons water because it seemed to alleviate air pollution?
You're not supposed to remind lefties of their egregious errors, because they all go away when you do and dig up something else with which to destroy American business and the free enterprise system.
No, all we want to do, is impose some degree of control and accountability on an out-of-control, mostly unaccountable, and power-hungry bureaucracy.
I grew up on the farm; farming raises a lot of dust sometimes, and I can't say it ever hurt any of us. But, it's like anything else out here in rural America-damn city people, who don't live on the land, or work it or conserve it themselves, wanting to tell us how to live , and impose one-size-fits-all government regulations, on something the vast majority of them (and their faceless, mindless bureaucrats) know nothing about. Most of us out here in flyover country love the land; and even though you think we are ignorant hicks, we know how to take care of it, too. Now why don't you citified liberals stay the hell out of our business, and stay in those antheaps you call cities. Be less trouble that way; we don't want to go there, and we don't want you (or your damn government bureaucrats) out here!
I don't take anything you say as truthful. Provide links with detailed proof of your accusations. California was also the first state to ban MTBE under Gray Davis.
Also, it's clear you didn't read the op-ed I posted from Republicans For Environmental Protection.
New Hampshire's drinking water is threatened by the Bush administration. Fifteen percent of New Hampshire's public water supplies and thousands of its private wells are contaminated by the fuel additive MtBE. Recent studies show that MtBE may cause cancer, and it makes drinking water smell and taste foul even at low levels, yet the administration has not banned its use.
To pay for the cleanup of this contamination, New Hampshire sued 22 oil companies responsible for MtBE contamination. Nonetheless, the Bush administration's energy bill would block these suits and force New Hampshire taxpayers to foot the bill for cleaning up the state's contaminated drinking water. The industry contributed $338,000 to the Bush presidential campaign and Republican congressional candidates in 1999 and 2000.
