House Votes To Block EPA Regulation Of Greenhouse Gases
February 18, 2011
The Huffington Post is reporting that the House of Representatives voted to block the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gases.
I don’t mean to force my opinion on anyone, but I don’t think this is a good idea. I thought the EPA was set up for this very purpose – to regulate the environmental impact big business may have on our air, water, and soil.
Isn’t the EPA supposed to be a watchdog? Isn’t that why they exist in the first place?
Am I the only one who sees this as a problem?
Whenever I see something happen that seems wrong, I automatically begin to wonder why. Why would someone clearly oppose something good?
I always come to the same answer: greed.
Someone somewhere is making a profit off of it.
So, who would profit off of the deregulation of greenhouse gases? Well, if the EPA was able to regulate greenhouse gases and impose fines on those who violated the regulations, those violators could face serious fines. Plus, these big businesses would likely have to spend big bucks just to “achieve best-practice standards”.
So, theres that. I’m sure it’s about money. It always is.
