But more crucially did all know how the EPA due to staff shortfalls expertise shortfalls? and funding shortfalls has delegated its regulatory authority over many of its federal statutory programs to the States also underfunded and understaffed? but this delegation largely hidden by EPA and MSM! So drink up that expensive bottled water even as public water systems die on the vine! Comment by William R.
Cumming 3 January 22, 2016 @ 8:14 am BTW I really resent the STATE of MICHIGAN calling its financial managers EMERGENCY MANAGERS. Comment by William R. Cumming 4 January 22, 2016 @ 8:18 am Since January 20th, 1981 and the election of President Ronald Reagan FAKE REGULATION is now the real truth behind federal regulation with many regulations non-enforced due to staff and funding shortages.
THIS IS NOT ACCIDENTAL but IMO DECEPTIVE GOVERNANCE. It remains to be seen if this continues beceRLICH WERE ARE YOUR GHOSTS? Comment by William R.
Cumming 5 January 22, 2016 @ 8:23 am Wiki extract: Rachel Louise Carson (May 27, 1907 April 14, 1964) was an American marine biologist and conservationist whose book Silent Spring and other writings are credited with advancing the global environmental movement. Carson began her career as an aquatic biologist in the U.S. Bureau of Fisheries, and became a full-time nature writer in the 1950s.
Her widely praised 1951 bestseller The Sea Around Us won her a U.S. National Book Award, recognition as a gifted writer, and financial security. Her next book, The Edge of the Sea, and the reissued version of her first book, Under the Sea Wind, were also bestsellers.
This sea trilogy explores the whole of ocean life from the shores to the depths. Late in the 1950s, Carson turned her attention to conservation, especially some environmental problems that she believed were caused by synthetic pesticides. The result was the book Silent Spring (1962), which brought environmental concerns to an unprecedented share of the American people.
Although Silent Spring was met with fierce opposition by chemical companies, it spurred a reversal in national pesticide policy, which led to a nationwide ban on DDT and other pesticides, and it inspired a grassroots environmental movement that led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Carson was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Jimmy Carter.
Comment by William R. Cumming 6 January 22, 2016 @ 8:31 am Disclosure: As to my political beliefs I voted in 1980 for Barry Commoner who made the ballot in ?Virginia! Wiki extract: Barry Commoner (May 28, 1917 September 30, 2012) was an American biologist, college professor, and politician.
He was a leading ecologist and among the founders of the modern environmental movement. He ran for president of the United States in the 1980 U.S. presidential election on the Citizens Party ticket.
He served as editor of Science Illustrated magazine. Comment by William R. Cumming 7 January 22, 2016 @ 8:35 am Wiki Extract: Paul Ralph Ehrlich (born May 29, 1932) is an American biologist, best known for his warnings about the consequences of population growth and limited resources.
He is the Bing Professor of Population Studies in the department of Biological Sciences at Stanford University and president of Stanford s Center for Conservation Biology. Ehrlich became well known for his controversial 1968 book The Population Bomb, which asserted that the world s human population would soon increase to the point where mass starvation ensued. Among the measures he suggested in that book was population control, to be used in his opinion if voluntary methods were to fail.
Ehrlich has been criticized for his views; for example, Ronald Bailey called Ehrlich an irrepressible doomster. On the other hand, Carl Haub observed that Ehrlich s warnings had encouraged countries to take action to avert disaster. Ehrlich has acknowledged that some of what he had written had not come about, but has restated his view that overpopulation remains a major problem!
Comment by William R. Cumming 8 January 22, 2016 @ 8:59 am Wiki Extract: The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) is the principal federal law in the United States intended to ensure safe drinking water for the public. Pursuant to the act, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is required to set standards for drinking water quality and oversee all states, localities, and water suppliers who implement these standards.
SDWA applies to every public water system (PWS) in the United States. There are currently more than 160,000 public water systems providing water to almost all Americans at some time in their lives. The Act does not cover private wells.
The SDWA does not apply to bottled water. Bottled water is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. RSS feed for comments on this post.
