"Once you read 'get your facts straight' in a thread, you oughta quickly buckle your seatbelt, 'cuz the train wrecks a comin'". Little quote I just made up. Put aside all the regulation vs. statute stuff, do you REALLY believe that abolishing or eliminating the EPA would be good for America? And because China doesn't have any environmental regulations is why American should not? What about our kids? Regardless of what China is doing, don't we have any kind duty to preserve America for future generations? Sure, the EPA is completely out-of-control. We all get it, but it's mind boggling to me that anybody would ever truly think that eliminating the EPA in its entirety (which would affect air, water and ground contamination) would be a good thing for America.
