    Currently 1 in 4 people live within 3 miles of a superfund site.

    hmmm
    Perhaps more of us should be more supportive of those commie EPA bastiges?
    For our childrens sake?

    How many of those sites are military installations?

    How long has the Superfund been in existence?

    Is that supposed to be some kind of evidence of success of the program?

    superfund was triggered by love canal.
    Which was triggered by rampant industrial pollution.

    We do have private industry to thank for the EPA.

    Oh, bullshit....Superfund was another do-good feel-good program from the Carter era and it's a massive failure.

    BTW....Love Canal was the fault of the subsequent R/E developers, not the people who had told those developers where the pollution was and how it was contained.

    Yes, it was...In a layer of clay.

    The developers drilled through that layer and ruined the groundwater.

    Best bone up on your real history, rather than the pap thrown at you by the MSM and enviroloons.

    so you deny that love canal was the trigger for creating superfund, sites?
    And you deny that private industry was largely to blame for the polloution?

    Just wanting to be clear on this.
