Flowing to Greenversations

2008 April 22

For Earth Day 2008, Deputy Administrator Marcus Peacock ended his blog “Flow of the River” to join Greenversations, this new agency-wide blog we’re launching today.

You can still read old posts on “Flow of the River.”

Editor's Note: The opinions expressed in Greenversations are those of the author. They do not reflect EPA policy, endorsement, or action, and EPA does not verify the accuracy or science of the contents of the blog.

    Inquiring minds still would like to know what the policy and protocols are for posting to the blog. I notice that the current FAQs discuss commenting on posts but not posts themselves. Yes, it is clear that only EPA employees are allowed to post, but what is the procedure? Is there a lottery? Is it “who ya know”? Drawing the short straw? Essay contest??

    Pardon my amazement, but I am finding all the “Green” statments and promotions by EPA to be tiresome, and flat out pandering to a very low level of intelligence. I (and others that read this blog) are pretty amazed at the sholowness of the “visible protion of EPA on these blogs.

    We are professionals, scientists, and engineers that read with amazement at the EPA going to a “Promotional, marketing” process when addressing their agency responsibilities mandated BY CONGRESS!!! I am here to find out about the reall issues of environmental regulation and management, not this “green” fluff and pablum.

    I want to know about SUPERFUND, and RCRA. What is EPA doing with Asbestos and the vermiculite issue and the Public Health Warning? Nothing, You are marketing a “green phlilosophy. Fine, but your MANDATE is to make rules and ENFORCE THE RULES.

    That is paramount. All this “window dressing” on “green and conservation, is wasted here, as you are preaching to the chior and frankly there are bigger issues and fish to fry.

    So please, get out of this “green” fluff marketing mindset, and let’s actually get EPA to dowhat it says in it’s title “ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION!!!

    Changing a light bulb has not “saved a life”, but asbesto regulation and enforcement DOES.

    GEEZ!

    This goverment body has out done its stay, with the current crisis in trying to keep internal combustion engines running because of unrealistic emission levels being expected, we are dimantling our economy. Did you know that big companies are not buying new 2008 over the road trucks because they cant make them run right or when they do its for a shory period of time. Did you know that gas economy is HALF on these new trucks! We need a breather. These engines are not capable of what is being asked. Dealers are forced to do illegal things to keep the customer off there backs. I dont speak about big trucks only here. Its everything from chainsaws to lawn mowers. We are sending our jobs to china not because of cheap labor, but legislation like this that is making it to tuff to do business here. If you believe all the green hype! park your car,boat, lawn mower and step up and practice what you preach! We are pricing these once affordable products out of reach of the average consumer. RR
