The Right Wing War Against the Environmental Protection Agency

The right takes aim at the EPA
Politics • Views: 36,609

The Tea Party’s activists in Congress aren’t finished with America yet; their next target for destruction is the Environmental Protection Agency.

Congresswoman and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann doesn’t want to wait for extinction, she advocates abolishing the EPA as soon as God puts the Tea Party in charge. She blames it for a host of anti-free market evils, from what she sees as an attempt to outlaw incandescent light bulbs (she countered with the “Lightbulb Freedom of Choice Act of 2011”) to the “hoax” that is global climate change. Take no notice of what elitist scientists say, Bachmann knows better, assuring us that “CO2 is a natural byproduct of Nature.”

The bill funding EPA and the department of the interior (HR 2584, if you want to look it up) is a dirty bomb, meant to destroy any rule that slows down environmental degradation. The legislation is so loaded with industry-backed amendments and riders – 77 so far – that it reads like a polluters’ letter to Santa Claus. One provision would allow uranium mining right next to the Grand Canyon. Another would stop EPA from regulating pesticides, even if the pesticides kill endangered plants, birds, fish and other animals. EPA’s funding would be slashed by 34% over the next two years, but America’s oil and gas companies would be given an extra $55m on top of the $36bn in federal subsidies they already get.

No doubt it’s the merest coincidence that Koch Industries, a major funder of the Tea Party, makes an awful lot of its vast profits off oil and gas exploration, petroleum refining and coal mining.

The bill’s many excrescences include assaults on fragile species, including grey wolves and Pacific salmon, America’s remaining wilderness lands and the very air we breathe. The EPA would be barred from limiting toxic emissions from power plants or setting fuel efficiency standards for cars, and, in defiance of existing law (to say nothing of common sense), the government could run its vehicles on fuels such as liquid coal, even though they’re dirtier than conventional fuels.

Worse still, the bill is festooned with more than two dozen riders undermining decades of progress on water pollution. Before the Clean Water Act was passed with bipartisan support in 1972, 30% of drinking water samples from around the country contained dangerous levels of chemical effluent, the Hudson River teemed with carcinogenic PCBs, piped in courtesy of General Electric and Ohio’s Cuyahoga River was so full of petrochemical waste it actually caught on fire. Now, Republicans want to forbid the EPA to limit the toxic stuff that rains down on streams and infests groundwater when coal companies blast the tops of mountains, and stop the EPA from protecting wetlands in areas that have experienced flooding. Never mind that wetlands mitigate storm water, and if you drain them, the flooding will only get worse.

James Watt could not be reached for a more recent comment than this:

During a March 1991 dinner event organized by the Green River Cattlemen’s Association in Wyoming, Watt said, “If the troubles from environmentalists cannot be solved in the jury box or at the ballot box, perhaps the cartridge box should be used.”

Ayep, the GOP has found the perfect win-win. If the bill passes, then their wish list goes into effect and the EPA gets gutted. If it doesn’t pass, then the EPA goes without funding and it might as well be gutted.

Meanwhile, that rumble you felt was Nixon rolling in his grave.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

Fucking Hippy. Why does he hate America?

It just blows my mind that things like this are allowed to happen. It actually makes me feel strange for, you know, caring about what happens to the environment and actually WANTING my fellow Americans access to clean water and air.

Last spring I went hiking along a beautiful trail in the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. Today I find myself picturing that trail if it were heavily polluted and being completely appalled at it. I can’t help but think about all the current and future generations that will be IRREVOCABLY impacted by the fallout from decisions like this.

How many will drown?
How many sill starve?
How many will burn?
How many will die just so some mega corporations can make a few extra millions this quarter?

Back to the golden age of Dickens.

Until the second half of the 19th century London residents were still drinking water from the very same portions of the Thames that the open sewers were discharging into. Joseph BazalgetteSeveral outbreaks of Cholera in the mid 19th century, along with The Great Stink of 1858, when the stench of the Thames caused Parliament to recess, brought a cry for action. The link between drinking water tainted with sewage and the incidence of disease slowly dawned on the Victorians. Dr John Snow proved that all victims in a Soho area cholera outbreak drew water from the same Broad Street pump.

…in defiance of existing law (to say nothing of common sense), the government could run its vehicles on fuels such as liquid coal, even though they’re dirtier than conventional fuels.

Some more detail on that:

Coal-to-liquid technology liquefies coal into conventional fuel for diesel, jet, or car engines. The process itself is expensive, and it also requires large energy inputs that are often derived from fossil fuels that release C02, along with large water inputs. This costly process produces gasoline that releases C02 when it is burned.

From production to combustion, CTL fuel could release as much as 2.5 times as much greenhouse gas into the atmosphere as conventional diesel fuel, according to an analysis by the Argonne National Laboratory cited by David Hawkins of the National Resources Defense Council.

Not actual food crops. Boosting the natural oil production of an appropriate plant, bacteria, algae, etc species that could be fed biological waste and even emissions from a coal or natural gas plant or the like to produce fuel or compounds that could be refined into conventional fuel. Tweak the genetic code to produce the desired products.

There are certain rare elements that make magnets very powerful. Think of Barry Bonds and Steroids…Last week it was reported a find of extremely rare elements in the US…Somewhere like Arkansas..
