I understand your frustration, but a total collapse would be catastrophic and we may never recover. The issues are not caused by "stupidity" nor are the issues to "complex" to resolve. I don't know a micro sieman from a Doberman Pinscher, but I do recognize the absurdity of requiring mine discharge water to be as pure, or purer than distilled water. The EPA had dedicated itself to serving a very small, but influential group of people. The EPA has lost its way and has become an instrument of tyranny. Remove Obama and demand that the EPA refocus on serving the best interests of the environment in cooperation with all the people. If nothing happens, I suggest extra legal action to force the necessary change. Energy has become that critical.
