Jesus - I couldn't make up my mind where to post this. I thought maybe "Major Insanity" but we don't have that forum so "Environmental" will have to do. I was reading National Review this weekend and came to this little ditty. I still haven't quite recovered from it: On the subject of oil spills, the EPA is ready to go beyond petroleum, and has set its beady administrative gaze upon an unexpected threat to the environment: "Milk typically contains a percentage of animal fat, which is a non-petroleum oil," say a recent EPA finding. "Thus, containers storing milk are subject to the Oil Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Program rule." What this means is that dairy farmers are now to be regulated under the same rules that apply to deep-sea oil rigs, and will be obliged to build emergency storage tanks and to develop oil-spill contingency plans, among other things. Leave it to the regulators to have a cow over a product so safe that we feed it to babies. This is what I hate about environmentalists. They go to ridiculous extremes in guaranteeing the purity of the environment. Following this stretch of absurd reckoning, since humans are counted in the "animal" family, I think women should probably give some serious thought to what kind of preventive measures we should take to protect the environment from "a percentage of animal fat" that we might secrete before the EPA tells us what to do. Here's a link so you won't think I'm making this stuff up: EPA classifies milk as oil, forcing costly rules on farmers | MLive.com Anyone got any ideas on this subject?
