Hooray for the EPA!

EPA Deputy Liar, Steve Bradbury, who is either very tall, or the people he is lying to are very short.

EPA Deputy Liar, Steve Bradbury, who is either very tall, or the people he is lying to are very short.

Thanks to the Huffington Post, the ironically named Environmental Protection Agency will be getting credit for a modestly unannounced act of kindness. The folks living in some communities in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Kansas–states where farmers rely heavily on the herbicide atrazine–are no doubt spamming the EPA with thousands of animated e-cards of appreciation as I write.

In their compassionate wisdom, the federal agency’s officials decided not to add to the worries of economically terrorized citizens by informing them that the amount of the weed-killer floating around in their drinking water exceeds federal limits–even though they are required by law to do so.

Says Steve Bradbury, deputy office director of the EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs:

“We have concluded that atrazine does not cause adverse effects to humans or the environment,”

Bradbury is full of shit, like many arrogant EPA officials, all of whom should be fired and possibly prosecuted for their failure to do their duty as prescribed by law, not just in this case , but in  a host of other  as well. They do not have the right to arrive at any conclusion that allows them to break the law.

As the article indicates, there is not scientific basis for the EPA’s rash conclusion nor a defensible reason for failing to alert the affected communities.

  1. Unbelievable. After reading yours and the Huff. one, I suddenly look at that guy on the picture with “different perspective”.
