A golden oldie from the environmentalist war against the periodic table.
The news report is below.
From an Associated Press news round-up
Apparently there are not enough hazards to go around. The nice folks your tax dollars pay to protect you from the dangers they define are searching for job security.
Environmental Protection Agency officials have launched a new study to assess the risks of – brace yourself – taking showers. Seems someone in the EPA worries people might be injured by inhaling water vapor while taking a shower.
No, we didn’t make it up. It’s true, according to a publication called “EPA Watch.”
Doubtless, several bureaucrats will take home paychecks for months while the imagined hazard is studied. Unfortunately, there’s probably a 50-50 chance someone in Washington will decide showers really are dangerous.
Wonder if anyone at the EPA ever has studied the hazards of pouring billions of dollars into overregulation?
