The EPA and Environmental Laws SUCK!!!

Over the years I've seen a number of threads and posts hating on the EPA and environmental regulations. Many seem to think that they are expensive and unnecessary burdens to the corporate world which would self-regulate. They ignore, of course, little things in our history like the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland actually catching on fire due to excessive pollution.

But if anyone needs another example of why it might not be best to let companies decide these things for themselves, they only need to look at what is going on in China these days.

A totalitarian government allows its industry to pollute the air freely without repercussion, and capitalism takes the blame. This is a problem with government, not with capitalism.

In a free market system, there is a respect for property rights. Nobody has the right to pollute the air or the water, or property that they don't own - except when governments give them those rights. This pollution isn't a problem of capitalism. It's a problem of government.

I don't know too many people that think factories should be unregulated. That doesn't mean some proposed environmental regulations couldn't be too restrictive and unnecessary.

And this is news to you Amno? Because I and a few others have been trying to tell you for years what polluting pigs China is, which is why I was never good with the Kyoto Protocol.
