A great piece of investigative journalism exposing this complex of eco-catastrophe and the corporate mechanisms reaping profits from the raping of Mother Earth!
As the authors write so ardently, "We need a holistic, ecological and humanistic economy, that REQUIRES all economic activity to be supportive of ecological and social restoration. The beast must be reined in"
The EPA has abdicated its responsibility and mandate becoming an emasculated, toothless, complicit, shill for numerous environmental/wildlife crimes via the revolving-door of personnel from industry, to "regulatory" charade agencies, and back again to the industries they supposedly regulate! The EPA is in service to the greed of the industries they are charged to regulate, complicit to their pollution, despoliation, and total lack of stewardship, rather than any semblance of "protection"!
Our oceans and their nurseries, bays, estuaries and rivers as well as lakes are polluted and their role in the health of the marine environment and resources diminished to great degree - along with industrial animal operations with their fecal runoff, this "fertilizer" pollution must be ended!
