Is there a backstory to the EPA pollution incident?

Further to the story that the EPA was responsible for a major pollution incident in Colarado a few days ago, Ivo Vegter posted a scan of a letter that was published in the local newspaper a few days before EPA started work. It's a bit hard to read, but well worth it if you can decipher sufficiently.

"My money is on 20 year old arts graduates planning, approved by 25 year old PPE graduate, carried out by local cowboy builder who put in cheapest quote."

The only thing wrong with this analysis is the last bit - I reckon it won't be a cheap local contractor (would that it were, at least someone local would be getting something out of the fiasco), but dedicated State employed (and heavily unionised) ones, at far greater cost. The Environment Agency in the UK have their own workforce who work at glacial pace, I'll bet the EPA have similarly inefficient employees.

I wouldn't put anything past this crew we have in power now. Don't hold your breath waiting for a sane response.

Today's leftist thought includes a sense of moral superiority which extends into the physical world. Thus they can do better than their Neanderthal forbears of 50 or 100 years ago, just because they think they can! Boom. As long as they are paid to think this way, it won't stop.
