WT EDITORIAL: Close the EPA
It’s time to stop funding carbon mysticism with taxpayer dollars
If the federal government really believes that lowering the natural rate of carbon dioxide will “save the planet”, they could easily stop the production of about a hundred-million metric tons of carbon dioxide simply by stopping all those useless bureaucrats from breathing.
Also, there are many volcanoes on federal land. Each time one of those burp they put out as much carbon dioxide per hour as all the nation’s SUVs do in a year! Because these volcanoes are on federal land, the air pollutants they produce are the federal government’s responsibility. Perhaps the federal government could show some leadership in protecting the environment by installing some type of catalytic converters on their volcanoes.
Silly, eh? Maybe so. But not much sillier than most of the rules and regulations promulgated by the EPA.
The federal EPA leviathan has become nothing more then a bureaucratic joke. It’s time that the EPA was closed down and their over-bearing regulation rangers sent to the unemployment line.
