The Environmental Protection Agency was founded to keep us safe from exploitation by the business community. Water, air, and land have been polluted because industry found it expeditious and cost-effective to do so. We are now at a crossroad where government and business are synonymous and no one is there to protect people, land, air, and water from exploitation again. The only thing standing between us and the degradation of our resources is the Environmental Protection Agency, and it is hanging on by a thread, being led by one of its greatest persecutors. Please do not let the Environmental Protection Agency fall prey to Scott Pruitt and Donald Trump's plans to destroy it and let business destroy what is left of our environmental protections.
