A Year of Regulatory Disasters
It seems like for conservatives, regulatory failure is not only an option, it is a goal.
If Big Oil manages to poison the ground water in New York with their hydraulic fracturing, I cannot imagine them buying up all the worthless property they would create – including NYC – which would have to be abandoned due to lack of usable fresh water. Poisoning the ground water of an area is a disaster that cannot be recovered from.
The latest problem surfaced in Pennsylvania.
Of course, we can count on the individual State to protect the rights and safety of it’s citizens from the depredations of moneyed interests:
