The Fallacious Republican Attacks on the EPA
Dan Farber has an excellent post at Legal Planet (here) explaining (a) why the current House of Representatives is the most anti-environmental-protection ever and (b) how the anti-EPA views of many House Republicans are faith-based, rather than fact-based. The fact of the matter is that environmental regulation in general has very little impact either on overall levels of economic growth or jobs. The only saving grace is that none of the House bills Dan mentions seems likely to become law any time soon.
