    The Republican plan to abolish the EPA, ending the four-decade bipartisan consensus to ensure healthy air and water for our kids | ThinkProgress

    Do you need more or will this suffice?

    I'm all for prohibiting the EPA from regulating CO2 emissions.. It will DETRACT from the mission to clean the environment.. AND I'm also for forcing the EPA to JUSTIFY onerous lowering of toxic levels for very little enviro gain..

    Wow JimH -- ThinkProgress eh??? So the mean old scum-sucking Republicans propose an amendment to cut $8.5Mill from the EPA ---- and of COURSE --- you being a BIG FAN of ThinkProgress --- just accept that equates with DISMANTLING the EPA...

    What's the annual budget of the EPA JimH?? Here's a hint.. That DRACONIAN cut is 0.1% of their yearly budget... Try typing thinkforyourself instead of thinkprogress.... It might help..

    you're right. It MIGHT sound like a dismissal of our commitment to reduce pollution in the USA. But it's not really.. The topic is China. And my point was that it NEVER works to have a government "regulate" its OWN projects and plans.. That leads inevitably to the problems in this OP...


    Which is how WE get to the reality that the US Govt is one of the nations top polluters.

    OR --- (a decision I'm still boiling mad about) --- how the Govt can cut waivers and exemptions to allow the death certificates for Eagles to be renewed for 30 years for their piddling hopeless wind farm fantasies.. While continuing to hunt down and prosecute any of their "enemies" for doing the same..

    It's going to keep killing the elderly, and others with respiratory issues.

    That is what the GOP is all about; blood for money.
