We need the EPA more than ever! Large corporations do not suffer because of environmental regulations; they are doing just fine as our GDP could tell you. Our natural resources and national security, however, are already threatened by climate change. Unchecked mining, drilling, and industrial development would be devastating, and any few jobs created (remember, we live in an age of automation) will last only as long as the resources can be exploited in the short-term. Once they are gone, we will be in serious trouble.
