The Clean Power Plan’s Counterfeit Benefits

Thought Piece [The Clean Power Plan’s Counterfeit Benefits,” by Steve Milloy, who has done great work demonstrating the EPA’s environmental politicization, climate change dogma, and the cozy relationships between environmental groups, universities, and the EPA, which produced many billions of dollars of biased health studies.] [The previous EPA has finally admitted that Particular Matter 2.5 isn’t [...]

The Obama EPA’s Crooked Prosecutors

Thought Piece This is another great expose by Paul Driessen, although Paul sent out a correction: It was Lisa Jackson who was Gina Mccarthy’s predecessor, not Carol Browner. It would be interesting to hear Gina, Lisa and even Carol respond to the charges made by Paul Driessen. Steve P.S. I would love to have a televised [...]

Madam Ex-Secretary McCarthy: A Humble Public Servant is Wise

Madam Ex-Secretary McCarthy: A Humble Public Servant is Wise Madam Ex-Secretary McCarthy: A Humble Public Servant is Wise By Stephen Heins, The Word Merchant, LLC As a more active member of the loyal opposition, I cannot help noticing ex-EPA’s Gina McCarthy's appointment as a fellow at Harvard’s T.H.

Hogan sues EPA over neighboring power plant pollution

Thought Piece Another novel idea for suing someone other than ourselves, like LA and San Francisco is doing right now. Theoretically, Maryland would be able to sue other states even if the Clean Power Plan were in force. The possibility for legal mischief and/or oppression could rival Franz Kafka's "The Trial." Steve Hogan sues EPA over [...]

Former Obama EPA Head Criticizes EPA For Lack Of Transparency, Forgets Her Lack Of Transparency

Thought Piece After being engaged with the EPA senior management since 2005, I must admit that my experience with them especially over the last 8 years has left me with little trust of their news releases and interviews, especially after paying close attention to Lisa Jackson and Gina McCarthy's public statements. Both have sounded hypocritical and [...]

A two-decade crusade by conservative charities fueled Trump’s exit from Paris climate accord

Thought Piece Another alarmist headline with more deeply prejudiced reporting. The portrayal of Myron Ebell, in all of its conspiratorial splendor, is so silly that I can't help think it was written by Jonathon Swift. Although, Myron has been an effective voice of the loyal opposition. S P.S. After hearing his annual salary, I think that he [...]

Cleaning Up the Superfund Mess: But Superfund delays aren’t the result of insufficient funds: Still 1,336 Superfund sites on the EPA’s Priorities List

Thought Piece It is time to put symbolic and political gestures in their proper perspective, especially as there are still 1,336 Superfund sites untreated. Created 1980, the Superfund has become a monetary piñata for many groups and individuals that have nothing to do this massive clean-up project: Instead of making a direct way of funding, it has [...]

Environmental Leader Gina McCarthy Joins Pegasus Capital as Operating Advisor: Even After Her Appointment, She Used Environmental Alarmist Rhetoric

Thought Piece On June 1, 20017, there was a Business Wire news release that caught my attention. Former U.S. EPA Chief Gina McCarthy has joined a private equity firm Pegasus Capital Advisors. As she put it, “I’m excited to put my public service and academic experience to use in the private sector, which is increasingly where [...]

The Truth About EPA’s “Mass Advisory Board Firings”

The Truth About EPA’s “Mass Advisory Board Firings” By Stephen Heins, The Word Merchant What role should appointed (i.e. not-elected) Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) boards have with respect to environmental regulations in our country? It’s a valid question and timely, given the recent negative news coverage over EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s action in not automatically reappointing [...]

“The Pebble Mine Victory”: New EPA settles a lawless, pre-emptive 2014 veto of Alaska project, which will now get a fair hearing.

Thought Piece Here is another sign that the EPA will stop meddling and being extra legal. The Pebble Mine deserves a proper vetting and environmental evaluation. Documents obtained from freedom of information suits and legal discovery have shown that EPA officials orchestrated opposition to the mine with environmental activists and native tribes. This close relationship between [...]
