Despite all the rhetoric and service to industry, the EPA has done great things for this country.

Air pollution? What air pollution?

West Jordan, Utah

Funny how we always think in terms of $$$ instead of our health.
For example: "take thousands of tons of pollution out of our air and, according to the Clean Air Task Force, save about $28 million a year in public health costs." How about we save hundreds of lungs of hundreds of lives. We think production, manufacturing,and the term "keep moviing forward", is the way of advancing the quality of our lives, not always. When we start becoming environmentally responsible in our manufacturing then we can advance the human condition. But that requires the almighty dollar and unfortunately most of us place the dollar (short-term needs) over the survival of humanity (long term needs).
