Fuck you and that “love sweet love” crap, Burt Bacharach. What the world really needs now is asbestos, sweet asbestos.
Once again I have to point out that this is not from The Onion. This is real. Scott Pruitt may be gone, but he has left a legacy at the EPA.
As ol’ Deep Throat said “follow the money.” How long will it be before we find the government official who either bought an asbestos plant for a penny on the dollar, or took a bribe from someone who did?
On a less specific, but even more terrifying note:
The EPA recently released a report “detailing its new framework for evaluating the risk of its top prioritized substances. The report states that the agency will no longer consider the effect or presence of substances in the air, ground, or water in its risk assessments.”
I wonder what it will consider?
