EPA Errs on the Side of Industrial Pollution

November 29, 2002

Re "EPA Eases Pollution Guidelines," Nov. 23: So the Bush administration, in its infinite wisdom, is allowing industrial polluters to escape requirements for state-of-the-art pollution controls because it feels that if industry is allowed more flexibility it will "voluntarily" reduce pollution. I say we test this theory by forcing industry executives (and the EPA's chief, Christie Whitman) to move their families downwind of the polluting plants. This will encourage them to "put their money where their lungs are."

All these years I believed that EPA stood for Environmental Protection Agency. Oh yeah, Dubya changed it to the Environmental Polluting Agenda!
