Good thing the GOP wants to let the industry police itself. Get rid of the EPA. Who needs them, Exxon will do the right thing.

That's a damn good question, where was the EPA? They have more resources and authority than they have ever had, why did they let this happen?

Then we should just get rid of them! We could use the $13BILLION they use for cleanup.

Now there's a plan of action any sensible person can follow

Same like leaving things to mining companies to figure things out and police themselves

OH wait didn't a few people die from something like that

Sorry pal, but the EPA doesn't allow things to happen, they police the companies that do wrong. Secondly, they have more resources and authority than ever? How so? Without the EPA who would police these serial polluters?

Why should we clean use our tax dollars to clean up Exxon's mess? Why can't we use part of their 40 billion dollars in profit?

If they don't stop it and they don't clean it up, then why spend the $14BILLION?

I think the tax money for the EPA is all used for them to have nice cars and houses, while they create laws, Heck,they don't even need congress

and go as far as saying CO2 is poisonous.
