Clinton EPA administrator Carol Browner began perpetuating the myth EPA rules are a boon to the economy. It’s simply not true.
While EPA rules may be a boon to those in the environmental compliance business, they are actually a drag on the larger economy to the extent they needlessly limit and discourage natural resource exploitation and industrial development — i.e., genuine wealth and productive jobs creation.
We have been able to afford EPA junk science so far because we are a industry-made-wealthy society — a status that Obama’s EPA is working hard to change (and not for the better).
EPA rules don’t make us wealthier; they are impoverishing us.
