States to EPA ... clean up your act!

    Interesting, especially in the listing of the states involved in this court action...

    The only surprise is Arizona unless you consider that the growth there is too far ahead of the water and natural resource supply - which affects the environment as much as anything.

    All of which has very little to do with the other states on this list...nor with the EPA's failure to do the job it's supposed to do.

    "The plaintiffs in the latest court action include Coakley and attorneys general from Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and the District of Columbia, plus representatives of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and the cities of New York and Baltimore, and several environmental organizations."

    On our political map, what "color" are these states and knowing that, what's so shocking about their involvement?

    Do you have to make everything about red and blue? And if so, why?

    So it's the fault of liberals that the EPA doesn't actually, y'know, protect the environment?

    Please, the EPA's been a disaster ever since Bush and his cronies got in charge. This what happens when the people in charge of the organization on a national level don't actually care about the environment.

    What would be surprising is if Texas was on the list - a state that is populous and has environmental issues in big cities just like the corridor states do.

    I'll tell you what else would be surprising - if every effort wasn't ultimately pointed at consumers. You know, people who have to drive to go to work, who live in places where they sure as hell won't spend the billions it will take for mass transit. How about engines that run off recycled water? Hell if they're going to filter pee water for drinking now, why the hell can't they run in cars?

    Yes, he does. It's the only way he can compensate for certain physical shortcomings.

    I'll tell you what would be surprising: If Bush et al would ever require businesses to do anything to help the environment, instead of blindly believing that they'll "just do the right thing." Of course, it's easier just to bleat about how it's not fair that India and China get to do whatever they want and threaten to take your marbles and go home.
