Published:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering approval of a plan designed to dramatically increase permissible radiation contamination levels in food, water and soil after radiation events, including spills and dirty bomb attacks.

By that reckoning, they can reduce the number of DUI arrests by increasing the Blood Alcohol Level for Drunk Driving.

Why doesn't the Gov tell the public how to prepare to all types of emergencies istead of twisting the truth?

When the EPA was in their infancy, they did much to improve the air and water quality of this country. They were needed at the time.

Now that they have tackled and solved the really huge problems, they are turning their energy to the mundane. After all, they have to do something every year or we might wise up to the fact they have done all that was important to do and have absolutely no reason for existing.

Defund the EPA.
