Why would anyone want to do this other than greed? Our environment is the only environment that we known of that is hospitable to life, and wow does it blossom here! Sure the EPA isn't perfect, but that just means we need to make it better....not remove it. As a "united states", not a divided states, we need an over arching agency that helps protect the environment for the entire country...hell it should be the entire world. Please keep our air and water clean!
