OBNOXIOUS: Regarding newly proposed EPA regulations governing when and how energy companies must upgrade pollution controls when they repair or upgrade physical plant, "Earthjustice" executive director Buck Parker had this to say:
"With the release of this report, the administration dropped a dirty bomb and it's going to cost thousands of American lives."
Power plant pollution: it's like radioactive fallout from a terrorist "dirty bomb" intended to kill and sicken thousands of people. How clever, and so much more subtle than the usual "pollution is terrorism against the environment" analogy. I haven't formed an opinion as to whether the proposed regulations make sense, but over-the-top environmentalist idiocy like this confirms my gut instinct that they do. What a jerk.
