Environmental Regulations

Climate change is a serious issue.

It is being caused, or at least highly augmented and accelerated, by the release of carbon into the atmosphere by human activity.

Everyone recognizes that bureaucracies and regulations can get out of hand. But, we do not need to intentionally gut protections that have obvious utility in protecting our water supplies and keeping our air safe to breathe.

The argument is often made that regulations are “job-killing.” But, what is often overlooked is that some regulations prevent “people-killing” pollutants from finding their way into the environment and, sometimes, into our homes.
