Cut out these liberal straw man arguments, Curtis. Why do you jump from a debate about the reasonableness of EPA edicts to, if you argue with me it indicates that you want no effort to punish lawbreakers? The thrust of the article is about how this administration is deliberately trying to shutdown the fossil fuel industries. Examples of their egregious behavior is the mandate for refineries to blend nonexistent biofuels into gasoline or pay a fine. Since noone makes these biofuels, refiners are paying the fines which adds to the price of gasoline. Or the hysteria over the use of hydraulic fracturing and the EPA efforts to tie it to water contamination, earthquakes, and ozone depletion without a shred of evidence to back their claims.
