  • Government Should stay out of protecting the environment.

    Whenever we put legislation to protect the environment, it fails. The EPA wants to ban coal. Ban coal. That's too much government. There is no problem in the environment. There love to teach this delusion. EPA also wants "green" vehicles. Those are expensive. Not everyone can afford a vehicle like that. The EPA is unconstitutional.
    EPA= Evil Protection Agency. EPA= Too.Much. Spending.

  • EPA is subject to corruption

    The EPA masquerades as a protector of the environment. It's existence implies that human beings in general can't police themselves to protect the environment. This is totally wrong. Companies will police themselves because it is in their best interests to put up a good image in order to attract the best employees available they can acquire. As an prospective employee, if you have two choices of companies to work for, both of which offering same compensation, you would choose the company that has a better reputation when it comes to how much disruption it gives the environment. This voluntary process of making the choice can be done without government intervention. The real reason for the existence of the EPA is it becomes a political arena for the big companies. The big oil companies love strict EPA regulations because it keeps away competition from small companies. Small companies cannot keep up with the regulations, these small companies are forced to leave the marker. The EPA is one example of federal government overreach that is prohibited by the constitution.

  • EPA over reach it's authority.

    The EPA supportable is there to protect the environment (Global Warming). First there is conflicting evidence to prove if global warming is real. Second, when the EPA takes water rights from land owners because they currently do not have a well drilled on their property has nothing to do with global warming. I was told by the EPA to get water rights back you must pay a fee and fill out an application requesting them back. I was also told they will not give them back because water is a valuable commodity and they don't give it back. They can't stop you from filing but the list is very long and a waste of your time and money. By their actions you will be require to buy your water from a local municipality. EPA should not be called Environmental Protection Agency. It should be called. Extremely Powerful A**H***'s

  • EPA Oversteps their boundaries.

    You continually hear people say the EPA is there to control Climate Change. That is far from true. First there is no proof of global warming.
    Second when they come on your property and tell you they are taking you water rights that wrong. Now you have to pay for water from a municipality. You can pay a fee to buy your water rights back and be put on a list but I was told by the EPA that they do not give water rights back because water is a valuable commodity. It's all about control. Their dumb argument about the military is ridiculous. Of course we spend more money to keep us safe. That is different than taking your God given rights from you.

  • The government has no right , the states do.

    We can not expand proven technology , do to the government's over reach simple , the over reach has too many negative effects on a capitalist society . "climate change" is going too happen no matter what us small "ants" do. The Earth doesn't "care" , we as humans want right now , our ( as humans) environment and us is all we acually care about , now enough be human beings and care for one another, not this dirt .

  • If we can't reform them, get rid of it!

    As much as I wouldn't want to abolish something as important as the EPA, if all other options fail such as reforming it or restaffing it all together, get rid of it and find a better way to have us citizens find other ways for protecting the environment. Fair enough?

  • We need to protect the environment - the spending is justifiable

    In 2014 the EPA had a budget of about $8.2 BILLION [1]. The US Military had a budget (presumably also for 2014) of $543.3 BILLION [2], outclassing the EPA by over 66x! Now, look at the good they're doing for the world...

    -EPA: Working on regulating emissions to protect the atmosphere and thus YOU
    -EPA: Working with manufacturers to promote "green" technology, cutting down on both emissions and your bill at the gas station
    -Military: spending $1.283 TRILLION to kill an estimated 108,000 insurgents or Taliban islamists [3]. That's about $12 million per person, which is enough to fund a medium size high school ($12,000 per student [4]
    -Military: Entirely dedicated to essentially squashing people we don't like. At the end of the day, it's not a win for us, it's a loss for humanity.

    Which would you rather fund? A force dedicated to killing and destroying (which is part of the "protection" reference I feel coming) or a force dedicated to preserving the planet?

  • Absolutely necessary to protect environment

    America is a much better place to live because we have a government that regulates pollution. Markets do not provide this; in fact they create environmental problems. Clean water and air are public goods that cannot be created by the private sector. As any basic economics text will explain, markets do not work well when a company can pass the costs/consequences of its actions to a third party(in economic jargon, externalities).

  • Police themselves? Hilarious!

    Educate yourself and go back in history! Companies dumped anything, anywhere they wanted and anytime. If you are to lazy to read, then Google, " pictures of pollution in America's. " Most cities had to light street lamps, because it looked like night.
    There will always be psychopaths that will choose greed over environment, just look at pictures of China today with no regulations. Far more people have died from pollution than war!
    People, we live on a little dirt ball in space that only has so much air and water and we need it clean, in order to survive!

  • The epa is necesssary

    There is undeniable proof from scientists all over the world that climate change is a very real and very serious threat to our global safety. If we don't act now, our children will be dealing with the effects and by then it may be too late. Reducing carbon emissions has been proved to have little to no economic consequences thus far, and the EPA has a budget 1/66 that of the US military. Our planet cannot sustain us much longer if we continue at this rate. It is a priority that we act smart, and the EPA is helping us do just that.

  • Society has already witnessed mass failures created by individuals and corporations who tried to police and self-regulate environmental issues.

    Serious environmental degradation took place prior to the creation of the EPA. Since its inception, much of that damage was reversed, mitigated and properly managed, leading to restored waterways, ecosystems, biodiversity, air quality, land masses, species and habitats, etc. Within today's corrupt business sphere and political landscape, the EPA is more important than ever.

  • The EPA Is Necessary

    Without the EPA, the gov't would have no way to enforce climate change laws, as well as study the environment. Global warming is a critical issue, there is no denying it. Without the EPA our air would fill with smog, our water would go poisonous, and the oceans would rise (Eventually).
