As was promised, the Trump administration has begun the task of gutting the EPA. Trump is doing whatever he can to remove the jackboot of the agency from the throats of industry and frankly all Americans.
And it’s about time. Other than the IRS, I can think of no government agency or department which wields more power, and uses it almost exclusively to abuse the American private sector.
So when Trump announced that he would drastically cut back the authority of the EPA, many of cautiously cheered. I say cautiously, because experience tells us to be weary of campaign promises. Yet, at least as far as the EPA and the whole myth of man-caused climate change are concerned, he appears to be keeping his word.
In March, the Independent woefully reported that the word ‘Science’ disappeared from the “Environmental Protection Agency office’s mission statement. The EPA once proudly told visitors that a large part of its work was scientific research to help improve the climate and the environment. But those references have since been removed and replaced with a reference to things that are ‘economically and technologically achievable.’”
Well that is good news, for as we know, it has been quite some time, if ever, that the EPA had anything to do with science. Rather the government agency should have long ago been classified as a church, due to its almost singular focus on the religion of global warming. And wouldn’t that be the ultimate irony, considering the left’s irrational fear of the separation of Church and State.
