The EPA, The Peoples Best Friend

The massive fines paid by Volkswagen AG and criminal indictment of seven executives are a “very strong deterrent” to cheating by other automakers, a senior career Environmental Protection Agency official said on Wednesday.

Christopher Grundler, director of EPA’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality, told reporters after remarks to a meeting of automotive engineers in Washington that the penalties have had a big impact. David Shepardson, Reuters…

 

The United States Environmental Protection Agency is an agency of the Federal government of the United States which was created for protecting human health and the environment by writing and enforcing regulations based on laws passed by Congress. The EPA was proposed by President Richard Nixon and began operation on December 2, 1970. Source, Wikipedia…

 

In view of the above its hard not to think of the EPA as being not a friend, but a very special friend to the American people, when so much of their needs, health and wellbeing are protected by this organization, for just a few examples; air, water, land, hazardous waste, and the current king of all, global warming. It’s unthinkable in my view that any administration would think of interfering or even curtailing the good works of this governmental agency even in a small way, without which the health of the nation is so dependent, deserves the distain of its people.

 

Is there a clean-up site anywhere near where you live, ordered by the EPA, because some business did not want to incurred the expense of cleaning up after its self, it’s the EPA that made them do so after the fact, before if it had known? If Richard Nixon had not envisioned it in the 1970’s, someone would have done so today, the need for environmental regulation is stronger today than it ever was…’On a clear day one can see forever’, let us hope that continues far into the future…Now take a deep breath and relax, I got this…
