There was a GREAT PIECE yesterday in the Daily Beast by Eve Conant on NEWT GINGRICH and the financial support he is getting from dirty polluting energy companies. At the top of the list is AEP, the country’s largest emitter of toxic air pollution.
Gingrich is behind the effort to kill the EPA. His donors would be thrilled by that. Gingrich repeats–like a mantra–that EPA kills jobs.
He also doesn’t believe that air pollution hurts anyone.
EPA would do well to start an ad campaign about how many jobs their work has created in the last four decades. Not just the I work for the EPA category–but all the alternative energy jobs, the enforcement jobs, you name it.
OVER TO THE EPA!
