Editorial Reviews

The relationship between environmental regulation and economic growth has gone from dysfunctional to disastrous under the leadership of Barack Obama’s USEPA Administrator, Lisa Jackson. Jackson’s EPA has assumed broad new powers and promulgated sweeping new regulations unlike anything that America has seen since the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act were signed into law forty years ago. While much of the public has focused on the EPA’s plans to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, the Agency’s power grab extends into far more areas of society and the economy than fossil fuel use alone.

Rich Trzupek explains why Obama’s EPA is different and more dangerous, than any other since the Agency was created forty years ago. From the oceans to consumer products, from the manufacturing line to the showroom floor, the tentacles of this EPA are silently creeping into more and more parts of our lives as Lisa Jackson smilingly assures the nation that everything the EPA does generates revenue rather than costing industry billions of dollars and America hundreds of thousands of jobs.

One could hardly argue with the EPA's original mission according to Rich Trzupek. Created as a product of the 1971 Clean Air and Water Acts, the EPA added a regulatory line to businesses, but also managed to literally improve air quality, as measured by particulate matter, by almost a hundred fold. By the mid 1990s, nearly every region of the country had met EPA regulatory goals set in the 1970s. But instead of declaring victory and moving on, the agency, at the behest of various left leaning environmental lobbyists as well as "green" industry corporations that depended on further regulation for their continued growth, actually tightened their regulatory grip and expanded the reach of their power. The George H. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush years all saw an increase in environmental regulation and cost, though some in the media rather naively painted a different picture in the case of the third named president above. Still, Trzupek argues, the growth was predictable and at least a few members of the agency attempted something like "cost benefit" analysis of EPA regulations to insure that the economy as a whole was not burdened too much.

All of that changed, Trzupek argues, when Carol Browning became the energy "czar" for the country and Lisa Jackson took over the EPA. As Trzupek sees it, the EPA has gone from regulatory creep to leap, and he predicts the results will be devastating for the US economy, already struggling to recover from a "Great Recession" that was itself the product of government mismanagement.

...but this interesting and informative little broadside is worth your investment. The author begins with a short history of the EPA, and its necessary and urgent mandate at its inception. He also spends a little time explaining the activities and focus of the agency under both Republican and Democratic administrations. To no surprise at all, he then focuses on the push toward a more radical approach under the Obama administration.

One of the great misconceptions, I believe, of the W. Bush administration is that he was no friend of the environment. In this writing, Mr. Trzupek points out that, under Bush II the air, water and soil got cleaner than it was under Clinton, just as it got cleaner under Clinton than it had under Bush I, and so on. But Trzupek also writes that the Obama administration couldn't settle for the "regulatory creep" of previous administrations going back to Nixon. He, instead, gave us Carol Browner and Lisa Jackson, the Terror Twins of the Green movement. He also points to what may turn out to be a lesson in the Law of Unintended Consequences (something Obama's White House seems to excel in): should the environmental Left get its way and legislate those big, bad, Earth-destroying corporations out of existence...they might find they dry up and blow away as well -- service industries like the environmental movement depend on the wealth creation of those corporations to fund their activities.

Perhaps one of the best recommendations for this broadside can be found by reading between the lines of another review. While the first review deals entirely with the work itself, the second is a whiny diatribe against the author. There isn't a shred of information -- not even opinion -- about the subject matter itself.

Format: Paperback
Rich Trzupek's has wasted his readers time and a large chunk of Carol Stream's (Illinois) local weekly magazine with Rupert Murdoch's talking points for the past several years. He is a very untalented writer without any ideas but a lot of opinions. I think a good term would be "know it all bloviator" to best describe his appoach to writing. If you are an ingnoramus who needs to be told what to think with the use of lies and propaganda, you are in the right place. However, if your looking for truth, integrity, and factual reporting ... you are in the wrong place. Enjoy!!!
