Problems With the Economic Not Environmental Protection Agency

| 12/5/2007 9:27:50 AM

Remember the EPA? You might not know it from reading the news, but apparently there’s still a whole federal agency devoted to protecting the environment. Of course, under the Bush administration, it seems that the EPA has protected corporate economic interests more than the environment.

Some of the Bush-era EPA’s more egregious offenses are compiled in a blog post by Plenty. In a few of the examples, the agency seems not only to ignore its stated mission but to actively work against the environment. The many links gave me a sense that, while the administration hasn’t sold the EPA headquarters to condo developers yet, Americans might be better off if it did. —Steve Thorngate
