Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the leadership of Carol Browner, the Browner-led EPA also blatantly broke federal law by actively lobbying against legislation designed to curb some of EPA’s abuses. Browner herself defied a federal judge’s orders and oversaw the erasure of the hard drives and the destruction of backup email tapes that she had used as administrator (1990s); think Internal Revenue Service (Lois Lerner and IRS Commissioner John Koskinen). The EPA refused to divulge how it calculated cost-benefit analyses. Indeed, in 1997 Browner admitted that new research would be required to set a “scientifically defensible” standard for air-quality issues that would “fill obvious and critical voids in our knowledge”

Environmental Protection Agency (@EPA): a panel of outside scientists brought in to review EPA practices concluded (among other things) that the EPA often tailors its science to justify what it wants to do and shields key research from peer review. EPA Administrator William Reilly acknowledged that “scientific data have not always been featured prominently in environmental efforts and have sometimes been ignored even when available” (1991)

Environmental Protection Agency (@EPA) tried to suppress research showing the cost of proposed air pollution standards. If Pennsylvania’s two senators at the time (John Heinz and Richard Schweiker) hadn’t intervened, the EPA would have imposed standards stringent enough to effectively shut down the U.S. steel industry (1978)

Al Armendariz (@Al_Armendariz) CORRUPT Environmental Protection Agency (@EPA Region 6) Dallas, Texas, appointed 2009 by CORRUPT Barack Obama (@BarackObama Barack Hussein Obama), said: “The Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go into a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years”

_________________________________________________
[N]ot only has Armendariz talked about crucifying oil companies, he’s tried to do it

In 2010 his office targeted Range Resources, a Fort Worth-based driller that was among the first to discover the potential of the Marcellus Shale gas field of Pennsylvania—the biggest gas field in America and one of the biggest in the world

Armendariz’s office declared in an emergency order that Range’s drilling activity had contaminated groundwater in Parker County, Texas

Armendariz’s office insisted that Range’s hydraulic fracking activity had caused the pollution and ordered Range to remediate the water

Nevermind that he couldn’t prove jack against Range

For a year and a half EPA bickered over the issue, both with Range and the Texas Railroad Commission, which regulates oil and gas drilling and did its own scientific study of Range’s wells and found no evidence that they polluted anything

In recent months a federal judge slapped the EPA, decreeing that the agency was required to actually do some scientific investigation of wells before penalizing the companies that drilled them

Finally in March the EPA withdrew its emergency order and a federal court dismissed the EPA’s case
