The EPA needs to be told NO!

the EPA lies. Their science is at best bad.

The EPA needs to be returned to advisory status within the department of the interior.

The head of the EPA is a progressive and it’s employees are progressives. They, believing that the end justifies the means, will lie. Just as they have lied before,like about Freon 12.

The EPA banned Freon 12 saying that the Freon molecule would rise into the stratosphere and destroy the ozone layer and was man made and could not be broken down to its constituent parts in nature.

The Freon 12 molecule is thirteen times heaver than air, it can’t rise into the stratosphere but does fall to the ground. where bacteria eat the molecule. The EPA says that Freon 12 will be with us for ever because it’s man made and can’t be broken down by nature. They also say that it floats up to the stratosphere (remember 13 times heavier) where sun light breaks it down and chlorine, apart of the Freon 12 molecule, then destroys the ozone.

It’s heavier than air so it can’t get up there. It can’t be broken down but sunlight breaks it down. it’s man made so we will be stuck with it forever but bacteria in the soil eats it. One lie after another.

Now let’s examine why Freon 12 was banned. The DuPont patent was about to expire. Freon 12 is cheap and easy to make. DuPont would no longer have a monopoly. DuPont had a replacement ready still under patent. Some one at the EPA took money to ban Freon 12.

When it comes to air quality, every time a goal is reached or it appears it might be reached, The EPA moves the goal posts. There have been instances where the EPA has cited industry for pollution when it was the environment doing the polluting, pine trees release into the environment turpentine vapor, especially in hot weather.

The EPA will lie at the drop of a hat. Lets examine another one. Dioxin is a man made chemical that is not found in nature and never goes away and does not break down. The level of Dioxin allowed by the EPA is less than the amount found in a garden vegetable eaten by nearly every one. That vegetable makes Dioxin on its own without mans help and breaks down just fine in the environment. That vegetable is the tomato.

Do we need to mention DDT? Rachel Carson should be tried in absentia for mass murder.

Fantastic post. Says it all. Dixy Lee Ray exposed many lies of the enviro-leftist “movement.” In a book called Encounters with the Archdruid, John McPhee described how the head of the Sierra Club, David Brower, saw the world from his extreme environmental position, and was ultimately deposed from the Sierra Club due to his blatant lies and made-up statistics fed to the media. I guess they had standards back then. But the lies became a standard tactic.
