Hopefully the Republican Congress will now find some balls and defund the EPA.
Do you even know part of the reason why the EPA was created originally?
Before the EPA began enforcing regulations on pollution it was so rampant that the Cuyahoga River caught on fire multiple times. There were other rivers that were like this as well, but the Cuyahoga fire got a Time story that drew attention to it.
I don't know if you are one of those who believe that company's can self regulate, but the issue here was where the pollution was dumped into the river wasn't where the fires started, they started further downstream. So there was no reason for the companies to even care about this. This is very similar with air pollution as well.
The EPA and other government agencies need to be reformed, but Congress needs to write some laws for that to happen (make it easier to fire government employees, eliminate the crazy amounts of bureaucracy that reasonable regulations have to go through, and go through older laws/regulations and eliminate the ridiculous ones). But this would require Congress to get off its ass and write reasonable laws and possibly even reform an agency rather than just defund it.
But the obvious solution is to just defund the EPA, nothing bad can come from industries having no regulations on their environmental output.
