Every day I get up and my wife tells me the EPA did something to make me mad.
The reason is she listens to the radio.
I hate listening to the news breaks on the hour and the half hour, even if the host in between is my kind of guy.
Why do the news readers think I need to know their name at the end of their reading of some AP news release? And why do I know they are committed to the agenda of the left–could it be tone of voice and choice of subject matter and the experts they reference?
So here’s the refiners’ reaction to the latest EPA meddlesome rule.
Sulphur has always been an easy one to scare people–you know–Satan and sulphur and such.
Sulfur Dioxide is most notorious as the culprit in the acid rain panic, which ended up being noisy, producing all kinds of anxious EPA and political actions to prevent the alleged destruction of North Eastern US Lake ecology, but probably the panic was exaggerated and ignored historical information on soil that was supposedly impacted by acid rain.
When sulphur and water mix it can produce sulphuric acid but in a mist it is not toxic.
However, EPA says be afraid and they can order another rule. Now it’s no sulphur in gasoline. Tomorrow it will be no mercury in coal plant emissions–woops–that already is the rule. Hard to keep up with a 24/7 nanny machine like the EPA.
