The Environmental Protection Agency is well known for being a rogue agency, but this is unreal.
Since 2005, the EPA, has demanded oil refiners use millions of gallons of a cellulose blend of ethanol. The problem is, the out of control agency wrote the specs for this fuel, thinking someone would actually make the product. Seven years later, this product is not available. It simply doesn’t exist.
Doesn’t matter to the EPA.
Instead of realizing their spec fuel doesn’t make business sense, as absolutely no one on earth is making it, the EPA has been collecting huge fines from the oil refiners, for not using this imaginary product. Incredible as it seems, the EPA has been getting away with this for years.
Fox News’ Jim Angle reports on this:
Oh, and good news. Now that refiners are fed up, the EPA is going to lower it’s requirements for the use of unobtainium by 98%. They’ll still be holding a gun to the head of the refiners and stealing 2% of the fine money they’ve been collecting though.
For any number of reasons, the EPA is one of those agencies that needs to be shut down. The agency has far too much power, and obviously zero accountability. The EPA is a perfect example of government not being the answer and instead being the problem.
