More Lisa Jackson: ‘Not hyperbole’

More from Lisa Jackson’s talk at Berkeley yesterday.

The Daily Cal reports,

“How we respond will to me literally mean [sic] the difference between sickness and health — in some cases, life and death — for hundreds of thousands of people,”

Jackson said in her speech. “That is not hyperbole … ‘Too dirty to fail’ puts our nation into what the president calls a ‘race to the bottom’ for the weakest environmental and health protections and the most loopholes in environmental policies.”

Reining in EPA overregulation is not a “race to the bottom for the weakest protections.” Is Jackson saying that pre-Obama, the U.S. had the weakest protections? Is that a rational thought for her to express to students?
