EPA out of control? No, they are in (totalitarian-centralized) control

Posted 7/6/2012
from Pearl Rains-Hewett
FEDERAL ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY A TO Z

I like the control of fugitive dust on roadways, control of food scraps, control of dead zones, the great American woodstove exchange, endangered species act and global warming just to name a few.
