The 4 Good Things About the EPA Doing Their Job
We should let the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) do their job to the fullest extent. I do have relevant reasons so don’t click out just yet.
There are environmental, public health, and safety issues to consider.
This mini-article explains all these reasons why the public and all businesses should allow the EPA to do their jobs to the fullest extent.
1. Air Pollution
Air pollution can be invisible or visible airborne pollutant with the impact of smoke, smog, and ozone.
Fossil Fuels plants are the primary creator of this besides motor vehicles. EPA regulation can prevent the impact of fossil rules in various ways. Caps on use being the very best way at the moment.
People, especially energy providers, do not like the idea of this. It is cutting back on production. And because of that, they don't like the EPA along with many other people. However, regulations need to be made for our own benefit. Because, I'm not going to be reduced to having to wear a mask when I want to go outside.
When the trend starts, someone is going to put an extremely high price on the masks. I'm sure there will be fashionable masks for women and men.
And what will get really annoying is the high-end make, which will be incredibly expensive ones made by Chanel or some other designer. I don't want to become used to wearing masks every day of my adult life and neither should you.
And if this became a trend, we would not be able to do anything about the air crisis altogether. The selling of air by its generated quality would be the next annoying thing to happen.
In light of these things, I think we should allow the EPA to do their job.
2. Regular Inspection
All I’m saying businesses, is that we could have regular inspections based on the facilities. And if the EPA decides to stay a little longer, let them. It's just for safety’s sake.
Let them snoop, look around, and make sure everything is going well. There really shouldn’t be anything going on that’s illegal anyway.
It’s not like the inspection will last forever. I don’t think it should exceed 3 weeks. I would be a little disturbed if they decided to camp outside in trailers at the facility and throw parties. I would even understand a company owner's anger if they start placing their family photos on your desk or using people's computers.
Just being in the way of progress altogether is something to complain about. Your complaints would definitely be understood. However, I doubly if you have any cases like these.
So please, let the EPA perform their non-lengthy inspections. We should at least give them that right.
3. Clean Environment
A clean environment is great to have anyway. We can enjoy clean air. We can enjoy not having to walk outside on trash like a nation of hoarders.
We need not get our heels stuck in plastic rings then go crashing to the ground ladies. Sliding down on black ice is very bad, but sliding down in oil is awful.
Getting rainfall that's filled with chemicals in your eyes that burns like someone sprayed a disinfectant in your face is even worst.
But what's awful is the trash and disinfectants floating around in water that we use to cook food and take a bath in. Granted there are three different pipes in every household, but they all come from a large body of water that is located somewhere.
Companies that have to dispose of certain products need to be inspected simply based on how they dispose of the products. No one needs a bacteria floating around in their system creating some new form of disease or virus.
The EPA is good for this, and should be trusted to handle it.
4. Protect the Wildlife & Plant Life
I know a lot of people don’t really care about wildlife and plant life. Because we use them, we must be considerate of them.
We need plants for cleaning the air, and some of us live off them (vegetarians).
We do need animals too, most of us live off them (carnivores). It’s given that people hunt them, which just pulverizes my point. But for the rest of us, we should try to keep them in their habitat and a clean environment.
Wildlife has been known to slap people in the face for being around. Remember the hunter and deer incident? The slap fight that the hunter lost? We don’t need for this to be a reoccurring thing for the rest of us. Nobody wants a dog walking up to them and picking a fight because we messed up the ability to have air they can breathe.
Worst still, some exotic cat that breaks in the house and claims it because you screwed up its natural habitat. If you’re not used to shooting a gun, or it just decides against allowing you to make it to the door, this will definitely be a problem.
Plants don't go on strike, but way too much damage to them can create its own problems.
We should allow the EPA to do their job for the environment and wildlife in peace. It's not like a lot us want this responsibility.
Last Notes on the EPA Situation
The EPA is an important agency. The environment and the public's health and safety is important. It is one of the primary reasons why I love Geography so much.
If no one is looking at these companies, how would we know what’s happening of course. Let the EPA inspect businesses in peace and publish what they concluded about that business.
They are a part of the government, but they are bound by policy to just publish a grade that says a business did or did not pass their inspection.
And if a business doesn't pass, then the EPA should have to publish and show why. This should all be within a certain time period. Make it convenient for everyone.
We can all work together, because overall, it's for the benefit of the public, environment, wildlife and country.
