@krassenstein If you contact an environmental attorney who is not actually an industry lobbyist, you will be informed that shortly after its Inception, the EPA was the subject of effective regulatory capture. 1 /
@krassenstein Giving due credit for the climate change sensitive regulations adopted by the Obama Administration, the total history of the EPA was one of obstruction of local regulation of polluting Industries, and protection For those same polluting Industries. /2
@krassenstein The EPA has been a large bureaucratic organization that has repeatedly compromised the health of the environment and provided window dressing for the federal government's delaying action against implementing real Environmental Protections./3
@krassenstein With the Ascent of Trump, however, monkeywrenching the EPA reached a level not seen since James Watt, a Christian who believed that all forests could be logged without injury to humanity due to the imminent arrival of the #2ndComing, was made head of the agency by Reagan. /4
@krassenstein to turn the EPA into an organization that actually protects the environment, Congresspeople will have to show more courage than they have in the past, spurning campaign donations from polluters, and taking their responsibilities to represent the public interest seriously. /5
