    Polution depicted as having 3 eyes has been hacked to death

    Quite the contrary. With the tendency now to regulate amounts of naturally occurring metals to the nearest part per trillion, it’s becoming insane.

    And once again, behold the fruits of the privatization in the hands of corporations unfettered by those pesky environmental regulations. Really, Tea Partiers — THIS is the Earth you want your grandchildren and great-grandchildren to live on, just so your precious corporations can run everything and make themselves (and you) richer while the rest of us grow poorer because of their (and your) greed?

    It would be great living in a pollution free world, I could drive to work with the windows down.

    There’s a price that has to be paid for everything one does—whether “good”, “bad”, or indifferent. Not always money, but something.

    As an engineer who spent a career in the chemical industry, I can’t say I saw much greed. But if one defines greed as a desire to be able to continue to provide oneself a livelihood, then lots of people can be called guilty.
    -
    What I did (too often) see was political types— often with zero background or any real care of potential economic/operational consequences— dictate to us how to spend much of the precious little money we had available for things. It must be nice. I’m not sure I could ever present a concise definition of irresponsibility. But those particular qualities would probably have to fit in there somewhere.

    Those pesky corporations that provide the products that we use and enjoy and need every day. Those pesky corporations that provide jobs and income for so many people. Those pesky corporations that abide by EPA rules and regulations. Hey, I’ve got a good idea, let’s turn them over to the government to run. Now that would make things much better. The private sector obviously has no idea how to take care of itself.

    BC’s authors used to be decent conservative types. What happened? Is someone blackmailing them? :(

    The EPA did its job in the 70’s and 80’s and we live in a much, much cleaner environment as a result. Now the EPA has overstepped it’s bounds in many many ways and clearly is no longer controlled by any common sense nor regulation. It is a huge government arm with super powers, including taking your home under imminent domain.

    Why would you be surprised if the EPA has “overstepped its bounds and is no longer controlled by any common sense” It is a government entity isn’t it.

    I don’t usually defend Obamabut this time I shall. What was said above about the EPA regulatios doing a good job in the 70’s and 80’s, is a true statement. However, Obama is not to blame for the current overstepping by EPA. He should have stood firmer a time or two but the EPA and its sister, OSHA have been overstepping for much longer. There over zealous rules and regs, coupled with the China trade, has almost emptied this country of manufacturing jobs. What’s left is getting by on far reduced profits(if any) on what is made in the USA.

    Folks, over regulation, in some areas, is hurting us. Let’s get together and stand united aginst this.

    And all the birth defects in El Paso since the pollution from the industry on the unrestricted other side are acceptable losses?You have to realize, greed is only good to the unwounded.

    As is the right of your local government as well. Your local police can seize your car as suspected in drug trade, claim it as their property and sell it and never even bring you to trial.
    By the way. did you enjoy all the benefits of those tax cuts over the years? That’s one of them.
    And you make the one good point. The original intent was to protect the people from big business. If it hadn’t there would be much larger cancer death tolls.
    Big business on the other hand has never been about anything but making money for the owners. they have consistently betrayed the trust of their stock holders ( see stock splitting) their workers and their country. One hopes they live well in this life. i would not want to be them in the next.
