America’s Most Wanted: EPA Edition

The Environmental Protection Agency keeps a list of some of the world’s dirtiest criminals on the “EPA Fugitives” section of its website. The violators listed are accused of smuggling ozone depleting chemicals into the United States, issuing fraudulent asbestos training certificates, and illegally dumping oil and hazardous pollutants. The EPA does provide a warning on the site: “Do not attempt to apprehend any of these individuals.” Instead, it suggests concerned citizens contact the proper authorities. The question is, how can we get Halliburton on the list?

 (Thanks, Sierra.)
