My prediction on EPA's control of energy

The EPA will eventually, and soon, be given the ability to control the amount of CO2 any company can release.

The amount of taxes and regulation placed upon energy companies will be so great, that no private energy company will be able to remain profitable, and will be forced into bankruptcy.

The government will bail out the energy companies with tax dollars, and take a majority control of the company.

All energy companies will be government owned, and the government will be in control of the energy production.

After all profits of the energy companies are directed into governmental agencies, there will be a new study undertaken, deeming that the EPA's CO2 rules do not apply to the new government energy companies, redirecting all profit directly to the government. CO2 will then be seen as a non-impacting gas, and have all negative views removed from it.

Meh... My prediction, anyways...

Name one company that has gone out of business because of the air, water, land, or hazardous waste protection laws or "taxes" the EPA passed over the past 40 years.

That's an immeasurable quantity. There are many businesses that lost a significant % of money due to EPA rules that are whimsical and don't make any sense beyond *claiming* to do something productive.

An example?

The US '93-'98 Toyota Supra.

Why wasn't a manual transmission twin turbo available in 1996? EPA rules. Why did Toyota discontinue the model in the US after 1998 but continue sales overseas through 2002? EPA rules. Toyota got tired of having to waste more money treading continuously more restrictive EPA rules on a model that was seen as advertisement - a model to get people in the door, but not necessarily one they would make money on.

What significant effect does EPA rules have on a car that sold under 1000 vehicles a year when a thousand fold heavy-duty trucks produce far more pollution, but are exempt from these EPA rules?

This is just one example.. the EPA is full of idiots who worship the likes of Al Gore. They jump on conclusions that aren't fully backed by empirical scientific evidence, but what do we expect from a bunch of tree huggers who would rather have the planet extinct of human life. I'm all for reducing pollution in means that make sense, but half the stuff the EPA comes up with is total BS.

This one is for Raze.

Who was the manager who was recently charged with DUI after he was found passed out in his car at a traffic intersection?

You fail at reading comprehension. I made a specific example of the EPA *hurting business* - which CAN be quantified. It's impossible to quantify which businesses failed due to EPA regulation, but many of them have lost a lot of money due to ridiculous regulations.

That would be Tony Larusa of my beloved Cardinals (in Jupiter Florida), which is no coincidence considering that John is a cockless Rockies hack.
