The imbeciles at Obama’s criminal EPA are keenly focused on limiting a harmless, essential trace (0.0004 mole fraction) gas – by making energy prices skyrocket and hurting as many Americans as possible in the process.
Meanwhile the same EPA destroyed the Animas River in Colorado by dumping a million gallons of highly toxic waste into the river, and didn’t bother to inform the state authorities of New Mexico or Colorado until it had already become a huge problem.
A spill that sent 1 million gallons of wastewater from an abandoned mine into the Animas River, turning the river orange, set off warnings Thursday that contaminants threaten water quality for those downstream.
The Environmental Protection Agency confirmed it triggered the spill while using heavy machinery to investigate pollutants at the Gold King Mine, north of Silverton.
Health and environmental officials are evaluating the river as it flows through San Juan and La Plata counties. They said the wastewater contained zinc, iron, copper and other heavy metals, prompting the EPA to warn agricultural users to shut off water intakes along the river and law officials to close the river to recreational users.
“There’s nothing that can be done to stop the flow of the river,” said Joe Lewandowski, a spokesman for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. “We can only wait until the flows slow down. We had a big heavy spring (of rain) here.”
The water has now flowed into the San Juan River in New Mexico, and the EPA didn’t bother to tell the governor of New Mexico about it.
Remember the outrage Obama feigned at BP? Will he unleash hell on himself, now that he is the biggest polluter in US history?
