It's an unfortunate fact that humans as a species are self-serving. Given the chance through deregulation, history and other country's models, show us that we will take advantage of whatever is vulnerable to further our interests. Our children and their children will appreciate, as we have, that we preserve an organization intended to curtail that tendency. If the EPA isn't working as some here mention, then let's fix it. But a balanced approach to regulations will always be necessary. When will we get that what is good for the environment is good for business as a whole. And when it isn't good for specific short sighted businesses, then the needs of the many always outweigh and the needs of our kids trumps everything.
